Title Basket of Chips, page 132
Description A Basket of Chips on some special occasion. We had an abundance which he did full justice to, eating twenty-three good average ears before he got up from the table. I believe it was the Country Gentlemen and Black Mexican corn." OUR CHILDREN'S HEALTH Spells of throat troubles never appeared in our children for the reason that as soon as the first symptom appeared the food supply was shut off. There were no school absences for that reason, other than were caused by measles, whooping cough or chicken pox. We never had a case of diphtheria, scarlet fever, or other serious contagion. Having kept a class book in my teaching for twenty years I can judge fairly well on the score of absences, and their causes: tonsilitis, ulcerated throat, bad colds or coughs have been the excuses offered again and again. At the time Willard was about six years old we were urged to give him plenty of milk which in his case we both felt would be unwise. The advice having come from a prominent physician we tried it, however. That meant an increase of food and no increase of physical energy. He would not play as other boys 4 J. T. Harwood always "loved the outdoors and gardening," and much of the family's time was "spent down in Lehi and at the farm at Holladay" where Harwood painted many subjects related to these places. Some of these were Pclstomi, a light-filled and broadly-painted 1905 view of some children tending sheep in a pasture; another of the same year and style, Wihd's Rnbbits; Boy with Trnp (19(B), a pleasant presentation of Willard as a farm boy; 1906 My Pet, a Winslow Homer-like scene of Ruth standing next to a fence and barn holding a chicken; and the better known Pioneer Boy, a fine, darker, and more detailed genre scene. Beginning in 1903 Harwood exhibited almost annually at the Salon. A pair of 1906 oil portraits of Harwood's parents have a dark, more detailed academic look to them, but so does his fine and imaginative, illustration- like Midnight Adventure, a IpOT-dated Salon picture. Paintings like Pioneer Boy and Midnight Adrenture sometimes began with a photograph (as in the first case) or a sketch (as in the second), and then developed as an expanded scene on canvas or as a cropped, more effectively compressed final presentation. Pioneer Boy and Midnight Adzlenture represent these two methods. Hnrwood Art Exhibi- tion, 6; Haseltine, 100 Yenrs, 42. 132
