Yesterday’s answer

D)   Pull a gun down from over the fireplace

Phoebe Arabell Woodruff Moses records in her journal how she and her family moved from the Salt Lake Valley to Jonesville, Arizona on the Salt River in November of 1880. She writes that their humble adobe hut was across the river from an Indian village. Phoebe states that on a number of occasions her husband Jesse would have to leave her and the children for four or five days at a time to work. It was on these occasions that some of the Indian braves would pull the quilt back at the door entrance and laugh at her. She tells of one encounter when she had to take the loaded gun down off the mantel and scare a brave across the river back to his village. What she writes next is interesting; in fact it might have you scratching your head at exactly just what she meant. She writes, “I stepped to the mantle and picked up my loaded pistol and pointed it at him. He gave a whoop and ran. He didn’t stop running until he reached the village. Some of the Indians told Jesse he had a ‘he squaw’ for a wife.”
