Pioneer Ingenuity

If we want something, we go to a store. However, the pioneers did not enjoy this luxury. In fact, if they needed something, and it wasn’t available, there were times when they had to substitute. What did pioneer Ann Jane Wilden have to use as a replacement for thread?

a.      Horse hair

b.      Her little brother’s hair

c.       Her mother’s hair

d.      Cow hair

Yesterday’s answer:

c.   300

I often used to be sent as a missionary to bring back a thief, while on many expeditions to the Indians. And the thief always seemed to be willing to come back. We seemed to have some reformation now and then when the people would get a streak of wanting to do better; and they would come for us to do baptizing. One cold day I baptized three hundred Indians.
