    Events in Beaver County
    As told by: Chester Howard

    Juanita was two years old when Monroe was born. While their Mother was busy, Monroe became unhappy and Juanita was unable to quiet him. When Mother came to his rescue, he was about to quit crying. Juanita was pouring sand in his mouth to stop him.

    Rabbit round ups were quite exciting. There were so many rabbits that crops were being eaten. All the neighbors would get together, surround a section of land, and the rabbits were driven into a corner and killed. Most were used for food.

    When Chester was about eight years old, he decided to wash a lantern globe. The globe broke, cutting his wrist. An artery was cut, and blood began squirting across the room. His Dad tied a cloth around his wrist to stop the flow of blood, until he could get him to Fallett, Texas to Dr. Markley. He was given ether to breath while surgery was performed. A large slice was cut in his wrist to pull the artery together and tie it. He still has a scar, and no pulse can be found in his left wrist. He says that he can still smell the ether.

    While riding in the back of a buggy, with his sister behind it, he and a cousin were holding the neck yoke. Another cousin, who was riding the Lister, decided to put the Lister in the ground. Chester's middle finger caught in the ring of the neck yolk, pulling him out of the buggy and injuring his finger. He's has never been able to straighten it. No doctor was seen, as it wasn't considered a bad injury.
