"Other boarding houses in the village included Cora and Even Young's which was called Highland Farms. She had so many guests that she went to the local homes and asked if she could put some of them their guest rooms. Many did. My mother was one of them as we lived close by. One morning Cora met a local man coming down her front stairs. She asked him, "How long have you been boarding here?" Even Young owned a team of mules to work the frm. They were quite a sight to see and became very frisky at times, giving him plenty of trouble. Mules are noted for being tempermental. Hervie David, their hired man, loved to visit the neighbors and play the harmonica and "Chopsticks". My mother, Luanna Place, would accompany him on the piano. He was an expert at it and would expect some money to buy chewing tobacco, as all he received for his work was board, room and clothes. He was from the State School; the Youngs took care of him until he died."
