Description A TRUE POLYGAMOUS STORY Ruth D. Scow Non Professional First Place Anecdote A certain man from Mayfield was almost daily seen walking toward various towns in southern Sanpete He never seemed in a hurry, just walking,walking Many folks in wagons and buggies stopped to ask him where he was going, and always his reply was. "To visit Elsie in Manti, or Abigail in Gunnison, or Agnes in Ephraim" Finally, the folks al Mayfield, wanting to do a good turn, seeing he needed help, planned a dance in the church hall. With the proceeds they would buy the man a horse that he could ride The dance proved to be a big fund raiser, and so a horse. saddle and bridle were purchased and presented to him A week or so later, the man was seen walking between the towns-no horse, saddle or bridle A friendly neighbor stopped the man and asked, "What happened to the horse we gave you?'" "Oh. I sold it." the man replied "I don't need a horse I have plenty of time " Documentation Ernest James Scow. Manit, Utah remembers his father telling him this story Old barns in Manti were built with a firm foundation, still in use in 1995. 36
