Former Jewell County resident writes Christmas memory book A Jewell CounW native, Louise (Moon) Allen, Colorado, once again had one of her stories recognized by the Kansas State Historical Society in a Pioneer Story Contest. Allen was raised in the Montrose and Mankato areas and continues to write stories of her days growing up in Jewell County. This is one of her recent stories, "My Kansas Christmas Tree." In 1929 my father, Earnest Moon, announced to the family that he would not renew the lease on the Judy Ranch where we had been living for several years. The ranch was located one mile west of Montrose, Kan., on Highway 36"Father had decided to buy a farm of his own. He had already signed the papers with the owner of the farm and with the bank for a loan. The farm was seven miles north of Mankato, Karl., and not far from where we had been living. We wouldn't have very far to move. I didn't want to leave my friends at school, but since I had never been over 15 miles away from home in my life, it did seem to be quite an adventure. My father, mother Edna, sister Bernetta, brotM~" Willis, and I, did have a lot of work to do. Moving to new home The household items and farm ma- chinery had to be moved with a team of horses and wagons. The neighbors helped with their horses and wagons. Mother cleaned out the storm cellar of all our food supplies. She buried the glass jars of fruit and vegetables in wagon loads of oats to keep the jars from breaking. All the cattle and the horses that werep' t needed on the wag- ons were driven over the road by men on horse back. The laying hens were put in crates and moved in wagons. The hogs were also moved in wagons. After we were moved and settled into our new home, Bernetta and I learned that we would be attending a one room schoolhouse. It was two miles north of our farm. It was called North Star. We also found that it could he pretty rough walking to school fac- ing a northern Kansas blizzard. Re- gardless of rain, snow or sleet, we went to school. Once in a while, if it was real bad weather, when the snow drifted to cover the fence and fence posts, we rode our saddle horse, Lad, to school. As there was no shed or shelter on the school grounds, we would tie the reigns over the saddle horn, turn Lad lose and he would go back home by himself. Heat provided by wood There was a wood burning stove in the middle of the schoolhouse. Our teacher would have a fire burning in the stove by the time the students ar- rived. There were 12 students from the first grade through the eighth grade. The farmers all got together in the summer and cut and sawed wood to supply the school for thewinter wood pile. . At this time there was no electricity or butane available. The trees and vegetation was scare because the farm- ers only source of heat and for cooking was a wood burning stove. A range for cooking was in the kitchen and a stove in the parlor for heating the house. Trees had to be cut down and sawed up for all the stoves. The wood burning range had to be kept ltot all the time, winter and sum- mer, for baking bread, cooking three meals a day, heating water and even ironing our clothes. The flat irons were heated on the stove. This all happened be, fore the farm- school. I don't know where shegot it. According to the Christmas trees of today, it surely wouldn' t measure up to them. It was sort of sffaggly and lop sided, Miss Pair had the students decorate the tree. We strung cranberries and popcorn that she brought with her. She even had little metal clips with candles in them that she clipped to the limbs. When we finished decorating the tree and she lit the candles, I thought that it was the most beautiful sight I had ever .seen. It could have been quite a fire hazard, but I guess no one thought about it at that time. After Christmas and the decora- tions were taken off the t.:.c, I asked Miss Pair if I could have it, and she gave it to me. After school let out for the day, Bernetta and I started home carrying and dragging my beautiful tree. The two girls who walked to school with us and lived on the neighboring farm, decided they wanted my tree. They would grab it away from us and we would get it back. It was a tug of war all the way. I think I would have fought a mountain lion just to keep my Christmas Tree. It may have become quite cad war if we hadn't come to that enclosed our pasture. Bernetta and I grabbed the tree and threw it over the fence, then we climbed through the barbed wire fence. We got the tree and started running across the pasture with it. We ran right through a herd of cattle and could have caused a stampede. We must have been quite a sight. I don't know why we were still grow. Everywhere you drive through Kan - sas there are an abundance of trees and vegetation. If there is a tree growing in the middle of a field, the farmers farm out around it and leave it standing. The countryside is very beautiful and pro.. ductive. When the first immigrants came to Kansas they saw all the resources that Kansas had to offeL free for the taking. The), keep taking without gi'ving any- thing back to the land. If they saw a tree they cut it down. If they saw something move they shot it and if it didn't move they shot it anyway. The citizens of Kansas today learned from'trial and error, and from the mis- take" made by their ancestors. It has made Kansas s beautiful place to live. First tree'brought most joy I have decorated many Christmas trees since that time many years ago when I had my first pine tree. My children and I used little electric lights and shiny store-bought decorations. Every time I decorate a tree I think back, and no tree has brought me the joy and excitement as my very first Kansas Christmas Tree. tbe ~ory "A Cup of Christmas Tea" ers and government realized that trees and a chalk drawing of such made by should be planted for windbreaks and JoLarsm.DdnkswereservedinChina to replace the trees, that were her- cups and sauce .rs. along with delicious vested for fire wood.

Ruby Pair, brought a small pine tree to hear reports (Continued from Page 1) running as there was no one chasing us. I just thought that tree wouldn't really be mine until I got it home. After dragging the tree, climbing through more fences, across rocky ter- rain, up and down arroyos, leaving tree branches scattered along the way, we finally came to our house. Bernetta and I looked like a mess, with scratches and cuts on our arms and legs, where we had climbed through the barbed wire fences. The tree hadn't fared too well either. Tree not allowed in house Mother wouldn't let us bring the tree into the house, so we set it up in a empty space in the corn crib that we called our playhouse. We decorated the tree with everything we could find. Most of the branches had been broken. About all that was left was a few jagged limbs and the crooked trunk. We kept the tree and kept tying things on it until the fall of the year when the new crop of corn was shucked and put in the corn crib. We had to vacate our playhouse to make room for the corn. I never knew what happened to my Christmas Tree, but I tend to think it got chopped up for fire wood. Many years have gone by and the farmers now have electricity and bu- tane gas for heating and cooking. They do not have the need to cut down any- more trees. Instead, they are planting trees and encouraging vegetation to Agenda man named 'Shriner of Year' Raymond Zurfluh, Agenda, was recently named Isis 2003 Shriner of the Year.
