The boys, through carelessness or clumsiness, set fire. to the dry husks, and in minutes the whole loft was aflame. They were cuf off from the ladder and there was no way out[ Tlmir ereams brought the parents running, but with no running water and only two people to fight the fire, there was little they could do. The little boys died in the flames. This was the second highly emotional situation that happened in the year we lived there, and for one so young as I the tragedies had a profound effect. For one as bold as I they were probably good, if tragic, lessons--ones that stood me in good stead. At Fort Stanton some IS miles away where my grandparents lived there was and still is, a Marine tubercular hospital. There were also some big hog feeding pens where they boiled the waste from the hospital and fed it to hogs. Dad went there in the early fall to buy hogs to run on the acorns in the shinnery on our land. We all went aiopg to visit Mother's family. When Dad went out to the hog pen to buy his shoats, we went to see the big pens of hogs. I remember quite well that in one large pen there was a huge boar which had killed a man just a few days previously. My Uncle Clyde, trying to "Show out", shinnied over the fence and across the pen in a flash, scaring the living daylights out of Granny and Mother. s,o $39.95 Dad bought 20 hogs and turned them loose in the shinnery on 1 the mountain. Before long they were fat as butter and Dad butchered  them and took them to Carrizozo to sell. Dad was gone to market, Mother, Geraldine and I stayed alone in our mountain,cabin.

Mother  _,_,I=oe Assortment was glad and relieved to see him. I remember that he was very i cold and he crawled between the feather bed and mattress that Mother Mother fixed f°r him" We were glad °f a chance t° sleep with I for a change. ,, ses As soon as winter set in we had to move out of the mountain cleft for the snow got so deep in tho narrow valley that we could not get out. Dad went back and forth on horseback to attend to | the animals, and many times his feet would drag in the snow. One family had tried to winter up there and a child had'died of pneumonia when the-could not get out to a doctor. We had two rooms in a house with another family. There I spent the first Christmas I can remember. We hung our i ! *" JT' stockings on the door facing, in lieu of a fireplace, and went to A '! bed at the foot of our parents bed (we had only one), andwaited   ./ " Solidsor Prin for Santa to come. x The next morning I had a doll and buggy, a monkey on a string and candy, fruit and gum.
