At the top of the well, the hole would be about fi ve to eight feet in di- ameter with brick or rock cribbing to keep the well from caving in. A bucket on a cable attached to a windlass was used to hoist the water up, one bucket at a time. Even at that depth, the wa- ter was warm when brought up. Mr. Hagely hauled water to the placer camps at $1.25 per 40 gallon barrel. At a very young age, Fred Kuehn (step- son) would harness the horses, fi ll the barrels, and watched his stepfather take the reins and drive away without a word. It was a tough way to grow up. The upcoming series on the Kuehn children: William, Charles and Fred and the Hagely children: George, Emilia and Theresa, continue with the building and growth of the town now called Quartzsite and will complete the next generation in the Kuehn- Hagely cycle in the Hi Jolly Pioneer Cemetery. Their stories are stories of ingenuity, trial and error. LIVE SMOKE-FREE Second-hand smoke kills 53,000 people a year. It's no longer a business issue; it's a public emergency.
