Pioneers had to bm ex tremely resourceful. They often made their own salt and candles.
They made soap at times, also. Salt was processed by boiling down Lonely housewives seeking casual sex Great Falls water until the water evaporated, leaving a salt residue. This was sometimes done in cooler weather when a fire was needed for warmth. Fresh water came from open wells. They were lined with wood and varied between feet in depth. Water was dipped with a rope and bucket. Irving Slaughter remembers pineapples planted under slatted cove rings with moss draped over the slats for shade.
He said there was plenty of guava Shy girl from Gulfport nm they were so sour they Shy girl from Gulfport nm "make a pig squeal. The water Shy girl from Gulfport nm so clear and it was filled with mullet.

Cecil Slauter tells of the first house in the early days as described to him by his father, Irving. In those days a lot of the houses were built with 'sawmill lumber. It was easy to use, pitch pine was used for the foundation termites couldn't eat it! There was no PAGE 31 The Beginning 31 plaster in the house and no window panes] There were only leather-hinged shutters on the outside to keep out the mos quitoes.
In the daytime, the shutters could be pushed out Shy girl from Gulfport nm propped up with sticks and at night closed to keep insects out. In the wintertime, it was real cold in those old houses! There were plenty of cracks and no way to stop the wind from coming through. The only heat in those days was wood which was plentiful to be had and was gathered around in the woods. This Shy girl from Gulfport nm was given to me by my father, who is still alive and lives with me.
He's 82 years old. Afterthe streetcar pulled freight cars out to Gulfport and placed them on a side track where the Gulfport Library now stands. Sometimes two, three or four carloads of building materials would be sitting there. The people who bought the material would go there and take it off the flat cars with horse and wagon and haul it to building sites.
That's one reason why so many houses were built in that immediate area -it was so close to that freight platform where the streetcar dropped off the freight.
The streetcar would then go on down to the Pier. If any of the cars were empty on its return, they would pick them up. People didn't hurry in those days.
It seemed to be an honor system of de livery and pickup. In fact, there was no law system. If some one in Gulfport was wanted in St. Petersburg or "Peters burg" for something or other, they would tell the streetcar conductor Free sex indiana he would pass the word down in Gulfport.
Another remembered conversation between Irving Slaughter and his son was about old cures and home remedies which were used before any doctor was in town.

There was also a medicine called Asafetida. It was the gum from a camphor tree and the mothers used to tie a little sack around their children's necks with Asafetida gum in it. It was supposed to stop you from getting a cold or a sore throat. This was a cure all for everything! One of the blood poison medicines was Lick your sex cam get off black it take a piece of flannel cloth and put PAGE 32 32 Our Story of Gulfport, Florida some sugar on it, set it on fire in a can, and let it smolder or smoke.
The injury was held over the smoke and it would tum real brown. But that actually stopped the blood poison from setting in. Another cure for the croup or cold for children was onion, tea, and sugar. A grated onion, sugar, and water was put in a pot and set on the back of the old wood stove to warm for drinking.
Cecil added, "I don't know if it ever cured a cold or the croup, but I'll bet it made them say it did whether it helped them out or not.

There's one other thing," he continued, "the old castor bean tree -the tender leaves were used as a poultice to put on anything that had to be drawn.

You scraped some octagon soap off the bar, mixed a little sugar in with it, kneaded it with your fingers, and put it on the Shy girl from Gulfport nm or the splinter; it would draw it right out of your flesh.

Eventually, a few bicycles were brought in and "some of the people had an old billy goat that could pull a wagon for the kids to ride in," Slauter added. A pier was built near the foot of York Street before the tum of the cen tury, and small steamers began to dock and haul freight, passengers, and mail.

In Shy girl from Gulfport nm, the streetcar line Shy girl from Gulfport nm built to the waterfront and this really started the town growing. Before the turn of the century, the interest of Hamilton Disston, Joseph Torres, and William Miranda spurred the area into growth, and more families moved into the territory as a result.

The fishhouse owners could now ship their fish much faster. A sawmill was built near the curve Shy girl from Gulfport nm the trolley line where Tangerine Avenue turned south onto Beach Boulevard. During that period, the entire area was covered with virgin pine. Millions of feet of lumber were cut at this sawmill and used in local building and also shipped to St.
