Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   Wood
The following from the life of William Henry Streeper:   Late in the fall, William Henry began hauling wood from Emigration and Little Cottonwood canyons. After much labor and trouble due to inexperience, he learned from an elderly pioneer how to cut, load, and bind the wood on his wagon. Wood was one of the chief mediums of exchange, and debts were paid with timber of various dimensions. With his wagon and oxen he hauled sand and rocks from the foothills for building purposes in the city.
