Abstract

Louis Stuart, a second-generation farmer from Woodruff, Utah, walked along his canal, carrying a pitchfork whose tines he had forged and bent at right angles. Louis used the implement to hook the moss and watercress blocking the flow of his irrigation stream, pulling the weeds out of the canal and setting them atop the canary grass growing on the bank. First on one side of the canal and then along the other, his labors left a tidy windrow of grass buried beneath small mounds of mud, moss, and watercress.
