Title Ezra Clark, page 057
Description EZRA THOMPSON CLARK 57 Each town supplied its quota. Inasmuch as only two wheels could be used to haul wood for local use from nearby canyons, other wheels of a wagon from different families were combined to make up outfits for building the temple. On these carts a great stone slab or granite block was placed and hauled with two yoke of oxen. The wagon road in the canyon, had what was called the Upper and Lower Stairs, caused by different layers of rock, one above the other. To ease the wheels of the carts from one laver to the other was difficult and often the outfit was not s&i- ciently strong for the task. Thus, there were blocks of granite all along the road as the result of broken carts. Ezra Clark's boy, Joseph, hauled hay to feed the ox teams engaged in hauling the granite blocks. Sometimes Joseph stayed all night at a mining camp in Little Cotton- wood Canyon. One of the Farmington boys was working in the mine earning ten dollars a day. After returning home one time, Joseph asked his father if he could have a team and work in the mines. "Shucks, boy," said his father, "isn't there work enough here to do?" One object Ezra Clark had in farming was to furnish employment for his boys. It was always a great joy to keep them at home with him, and he sympathized with fathers whose boys were obliged to leave home to seek employment. "A Thousand Dollar Boy" was always his expression when a new son arrived. His great delight over the birth of a son can only be accounted for by his sympathy for women, believing as he did in the inequality of sex. This attitude can be explained when one recognizes the tradi- tional dominance of man over woman. Dr. Adler states
