Her corn field measured Just' one
acre, and wa- cultivated nti Jer the
supervision of the Agricultural De
partment of the I'nited Sta:e:s. The
prize winning ar e U part of the farm
r.n which Miss Patterson lives with
her father. It was her second year's
vork under the sujiervision of a dem
onstrator. In 1011 from one acre she
gathered fifty-seven aini a half bush
els of corn, twenty-two bushels ol
stork peas, two tons of iea vine hay
and bundles of fodder.
The acre selected for her If 12 crop
was in a iield that had been under sod
and lleimuda grass for fourteen years.
Mhe first broke this ground four inch
es deep with a two horso turning
plow and then cross plowed it eleven
inches deep, not using the harrow.
The most vrrolific seed corn she could
secure was planted by hand in rows
four feet apart, the hills three feet
apart in the drills. At intervals the
ground was carefully cultivated.
1 ho three men selected to inspect
the farms of the contestants reported
that "We took from Miss Patterson
patch of coin two hills, one having
ten cars of corn and the other eleven
ears. Her acre of corn ran from three
cars to the hill to eleven, fivb or six
ears to the hill or stalk being the av
erage for the entire patch. We fur
ther certify that her corn was the
best we ever saw grown in the State."
Miss Patterson's one acre yielded
nearly 105 bushels of corn, in addition
to a large amount of dry forage. She
is the first woman in her State to try
intensive farming under the supervl
ison of ,a demonstrator.

thority over her own children. Her
consent to their marriage or adoption
of a profession is not required, though
that of the father is necessary. A
married woman is under the control
of her husband to such an extent that
