 When Clyde was about 2 he was climbing around on some boards which had been  
removed from an old wagon, when he stepped on a nail.  His mother, Bessie,  and 
grandmother Little poured kerosene in a bucket and made him soak his foot  in 
it.  When he was a little older, he was playing with a cousin who was  whirling 
a gear plate around and let go and it cut Clyde's jugular vein.  His  mom 
poured pepper in the wound and got the blood stopped. Age 3 he was  punching at 
a mule which kicked him in face.  Unconscious several days.
