Fats, like fibers, were important. It was melted in the old kettle on a fire outside. The melted liquid was strained to remove any solids that might remain. In making candles, the molds were made ready beforehand. Our mold had two rows of brass tubes soldered together. Each tube was about an inch in diameter and eight inches long. A string, like yarn, had been fastened up the center of each tube and this served as the candle wick. Then each tube was filled with fat and when the fat cooled, the form was removed and there was your batch of candles. Fats for making soap were also melted in the old pot. Wood ash, free from charcoal, or other solids, was kept in a tub or other container with water. This process produced a kind of lye. A certain proportion of this stuff was mixed with the fat in the copper kettle and stirred somewhat constantly as it was boiled. When the cooking was finished, the product was allowed to cool and harden. Then it was cut into cakes of such size and shape as desired. Later on, the lye cold be acquired in stores in half-pint rusty cans, and the tubs with the ashes in them were eventually forgotten. The scythe, the ox team and the flail had passed out of universal use by the time I came along. I don’t remember of either of them being used but very little. I do remember, however, all the older children binding grain into bundles by using a handful of grain stems as a binding cord. A great deal of dexterity had to be employed to do that job fast and thoroughly. You can buy your food now every day without inconvenience to anyone, but that was not true in early days. You took your wheat to the mill in “seamless sacks” as early as you could in the fall and you brought back a year’s supply of flour, plus the bran and shorts. The miller had taken his toll. It was also very wise to get the winter wood before snow came in the fall. It was neither pleasant nor easy to travel in the canyons in the winter time. Meat was secured and stored in the fall whenever possible. Some times it would be cut in pieces of suitable size and salted down in barrels. Others would hang it up in a protected place where it would likely keep frozen until used. The smaller items were secured from the little stores here or in Ogden. Mother was sociably inclined, and had many visitors. Most of them were her own neighbors, but quite a few of them were from out of town. It was a wonderful picture to see a group like Granny Smith, Christiane Aldous, Agnes Hislop, and Elizabeth Bronson sit around the kitchen table with Mother, enjoying a cup of tea. Each of them wore a white apron and a white cap frilled with lace when they attended these functions. Their knitting went on automatically without detracting in the least from their conversation or their enjoyment of the tea. These affairs occurred frequently. There were many younger women who came to our home also, but they made no such impression on me as did these old ladies. One of this group of women, Granny Smith, was a very important person in the town. Before coming to Utah, she had been trained as a nurse in a hospitable in London. Her presence in the community was a blessing of the highest order. She not only presided at all births, but her skill in treating the afflicted settlers was the only semblance of medical help available to them then. About the only drugs or medicine available were the herbs that nature provided, aided by her knowledge, experience, and a lot of common sense. There was no night so dark or storm so bad that it would deter her from going where help was needed.
