Each Friday we hear moments from StoryCorp. That's the oral history project that gives families and friends a chance to interview each other about their lives. Today's story from North Dakota, Virginia Fairbrother grew up in Towner, North Dakota during the Depression, she is 81 now, her father Homer Hill owned a drugstore in town, and here she tells her daughter Laurel Kaae, the story of a stranger who asked her father for a favor.

This old car drove up in front of the house, and a man got out and called dad by name, and he said, "my family is hungry, someone in town told me that you might feed my family. " He was a young fellow who had just graduated from the University of Minnesota. And if he could get to Ft. Pick by the next day, he would have a job. Dad told him to go down to the store. He said I'll be down in a few minutes. Dad walked down there, gave this fellow some food that wasn't perishable1 and five dollars, and he had a friend of his fueled the car with gas and they put a new spare tyre in the car, and this young man had insisted on giving dad a watch that he had gotten from his father for graduation. 25 years later, my brother who was a pharmacist also, was in the drugstore, and he called and said, "somebody had just come in there and asked to talk to Mr. Hill, so he sent him up to our house. I opened the door, and had two tall young men with him, and he said to dad, "you don't know me, do you, Mr. Hill? Ur~ I'm the fellow that had to get to Ft. Pick and dad looked at my mother, and he said "Florence, the watch. " and . . hum. . my mother went and got it, and he gave it back to this fellow, and he said , "you were supposed to use this. " and dad said, " I did , every Sunday I want it. " This young man never expected to see it again, but he wanted his kids to see this man, and that was my dad.
