Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 090
Description BEAVER I was quite sorry to part from Mrs. Jane, when the horses were once more put to. Short as our afternoon's drive was, it proved a tiresome one: we were obliged to move so slowly, and the chil- dren's usual chatter had to be hushed. I had given my husband's place in the carriage to a sick lady, and I feared that they might arouse the beautiful pale creature from a sleep into which she fell nearly as soon as the motion of the carriage began. The barren hills and plains gave way to one scene that re- minded us of home: I think it was "INDIAN CREEK," where a shallow stream flowed between gently-rising banks fringed with cottonwood trees. There were nicely--fenced-in fields here, and a decent farmhouse, but the people were all away. There had been an Indian alarm, we were told, and the settlers had been warned in from exposed points. The children begged to stop a little longer to refresh their eyes with the sight of "running water, and trees big enough to look at," but after the horses had done drinking we had to pass on to arrive at Beaver before dusk. We went on descending until we reached the hard gravelly plain in which Beaver lies. Some one told me that no mice existed there because the soil was too hard for them to work. But hard or not, the Mormons have picked out and fenced some three thousand acres fit for cultivation. (My informant was a woman. She is not to be held responsible for accuracy within a thousand acres or so more or less.) Although I must say that the fields I saw looked as if the pebbly bed of some ancient stream had been fenced in! More- over, it is rather frosty: last summer there were only seven weeks
