Title Basket of Chips, page 050
Description A Basket of Chips ties of fruit trees and between them I put in seed English wal- nuts from my father's trees at Lehi. The following spring we obtained a loan from the building societv and built a five room brick house at the cost of fourteen hundred and fifty dollars. Our spring outings were to ride down on the street car and insbect ozlr borne. The car line was three blocks awav to move down, a lunch owned in a moving 1 our new home. When the time came to were busy. And later was clean and new. To one who loves was prepared and we packed all that we van and arrived before noon. Then we we spread our lunch out on the sink which plants and to grow things the place was a paradise. I could do as I wished. We were soon in good shape and settled? Our supply of water was from a flowing well, and to take care of the overflow from our cooler I built a fish pond a few yards from the house with bamboo and morning glories sur- rounding it, and in a year I had a beautiful little pool stocked with fifty mountain trout. What a delight it was to us all to feed them and watch them play. They were from six to ten inches long. But one fatal night something happened for which I have always felt regret and irritation. A publishing company was pushing the sale of their art text books and it meant thousands of dollars outlay to this city if they succeeded. I was referred to by the Board of Education and it meant if I recommended it, it went. The agent came that evening and spent hours urging and offering every inducement but I held firm. It was close to midnight before she left and my wife had gone to bed, leaving the water to my care. It was understood that the last one to bed should turn the fresh water into the pond instead of the cooler. I was so worried by this agent that I forgot all about the fish, and the next morning they were all 4.5 This is the home at 666 East 1700 South streets.
