This event so important to him and
his parents occurred 51 years ago

safely pins In those days but he was
as safe as (he pampered child of the'
present day. When he cried with the
colic there was no electric light to
turn on, not even a coal cil lamp,
the coals wore fanned to a flame and
a tallow candle was lighted, and in- [

recourse was hail to the aiafaetlda

plough a yoke of oxen to a wooden

the soil more mellow than the lister
of today. With the single shovel or
the bull tongue plow to cultivate
the cotton and the corn, the refresh

made the clops to grow as well as
where the latest model of the culti
