HAZARDS
Tells the story about his aunt, who when walking from school one night (in the early 1900s) got bitten by a rattlesnake. The other kids got her to a neighbor, who hitched up the team and rushed to a doctor. She survived.
DRAINAGE
Father laid tile on his land about 1900. Not very expensive because local towns had their own pottery works that made tile. Describes the tile as being from five to 12 inches in diameter and one to two feet long. Most tile were soft-burned so water could seep into them. He used some joints. There was a plant at Rochester, and in Pensacola, a tiny settlement. Settlers did not have much glass; they used pottery jars and containers.
