FARMING IN DAKOTA.
‘‘Speaking of fanning,” said the
visitor from the West, *<we have son.o
farms out in Dakota that are quite
sizable. I’ve seen a man on one of our
big farms start out in the spring and
plow a straight furrow till fall. Th< n
he harvested back.”
"Wonderful!” said the listener.
"On our Dakota farms,” he went on,
"it is the usual thing to send young
married couples out to milk the cows.
Their children return with the milk.”
