Description Philosophy md Hobbies snake in no hurry to move away. I took a good friendly look at him and told him he was very welcome to live on my farm, but as I intended to water that piece of ground in a few hours and did not wish to step on him, I would be obliged if he would move right out of that quarter. He made not the least effort to accommodate me so I concluded to remove him as carefully as possible. I slipped a small stick under him and raised him gently from the ground. He objected, but not in an angry way at all; just slid off. I tried again, and it did not work, so I got a forked stick and slipped the forks under him and held him with another stick across his back and carried him right out of that vicinity. He didn't show the slightest anger or fear any more than I did. I am convinced that I could have taken him with my hands, but I would have been sure to show nervousness and he might not have understood it. Our attitude toward man or beast will be returned. If you hate, he will hate, and the reverse. I did not meet my friend again but I noticed fewer gopher mounds that season. My farming was carried on under difficulties. Our home was in town six miles away from the farm." The horse, cow, pigs, and chickens, were at the town home,3 and all the farm produce I hauled in with the horse and light wagon. We were a happy family, my dear wife and children." Every day was a holiday to us; a new thrill came each day. I will speak later of my wife's beautiful ideals that are living again in her children. 2 The Harwood farm located in Holladay (a southeast section of the greater Salt Lake City area in Salt Lake County) was purchased in 1905, a short time after the birth of Heber James Harwood, the fifth and last child of Harriett and James.
