My uncle, my jmother‘s oldest brother. rmved ,from Pickering Passage to Olym- ipia, and bought the fruit trees {at Swanson’s Nursery. The wheelbarrow and rowboat {were their only means- of trans- iportution. It was four miles to lPickering Passage over a rough :trail that all supplies were hauled. lUsually the commodities Were gbought in Shelton, and transport- ?ed eight miles to Pickering land- iing, by rowboat. ,row did not always prove a “One iHoss Shay" often a hundred or ‘hundred and fifty pounds was ‘loaded on, and a rope. was fasten- led to the front end; one man {pulled and one pushed. ilabor and time of two trips be- ftwccn home and the beach. ‘ Fish was an important item ofiz. obtained by§ I a little effort, and no money was‘ food.

Ldays to feed her brood when the ‘larder contained such scanty sup- Iplies, I’ll never know. Dynamite for the blasting of {stumps was a luxury. Most of ltllc land was cleared by hand. This meant keeping fires burning beneath the stumps until they lburned to the ground. But the llong, stubborn roots took plenty 30f chopping and grubbing to get [them out of the way before the: isoil could be cultivated for use. Happy was the homesteader that boasted a piece of cleared ground that would raise potatoes enough ito last the family a year. 3 My mother's oldest brother ac- lcepted much of the heavy work land responsibilities, thereby les- sening the handships of my grand- liparcnts. Intermittenly working iin logging camps or whatever lwork he could find to do he helped to clear the land, and make a home for his parents. Often lhe trailed home Saturday night, camp over unblazed trails, just to spend Sunday with them. One evening grandfather several miles from some found the larder so depleted that it was up to the menfolks to start out early the following morning and rustle supplies. My younger un- cle was home at the time; pre- vious to his enlistment in the Spanish-American War. Before- they could buy anything they must first secure the equivalent for their purchases. - They took the wheelbarrow, and set out for the beach where they These 1 try to séll in dug a sackfull of clams. they decided to Olympia. My grandfather rewed while my uncle trolled. By the time they reached Olympia he had caught a nice string of fish. There was no sale for clams. They were plentiful, and people dug their own clams. But it took more time and effort to catch fish. So grandfather trudg- ed all around town trying to sell the fish. After several refusals from housewives to buy the fish he decided to make one more at- tempt. He sauntered into a bank, and asked the banker if he would like to buy some fish. And sure enough the banker bought them. Now they hadvmoney to buy the necessities of life that would give them strength to dig out more stumps. I When I hear my two uncles talking about those days I real- ize that much contentment and satisfaction rewarded their strug- gles and efforts. I . They claim those days were truly the happy days.
