stakes at the last Internation
al Live Stock exposition in Chicago.
You see these were no ordinary swine, but the
finest Chester Whites in the show. And this to
far from being Just an ordinary girl. Here is a
girl who is young and pretty and well educated
and yet so interested in hogs that she spends her
time breeding them, raising them and taking them
to faIrs and stock shows. With her sister as help
er, she came to the Chicago show from Leaven
worth, Kansas, bringing her 20 hogs and taking
all the care of them both on the Journey and at
the show. When she led the grand parade into
the arenla on the big night of the show she walked
in quietly with her grunting white pigs followlng
contentedly behind hef. There was no shouting
and running and pounding as when some of the
men and boys cnme in. ller pigs huddled close
beside her, for they knew where to find a friend.
Mlss Justine Mosse says she is a farmer because
she lt-es to farm. Her eyes shine and her face
lights up when she talks about the chances for a
woman on a farm. For herself, she had worked
around on her father's place ever since she was
a little girl, doing, all sorts of things Just as a
boy might do them. ,Then she went away to col
lege and began to think about a vocation for her
self. The work other girls were doing seemed
very monotonous and dull after the change and
variety she was used to. So. slowly, 'she came
to realize that the work she liked best was back
on the home farm. About that time it happened
that she went home to help her father through
the summer. She has been at it ever since.
"Lots of girls ought to be doing this kind of
work," says Miss Justine when you talk to her.
"Some people are born with the love of farming
and the out-doors in them. -And they are the
people to be farmers, they are the ones who suc
ceed. I think lots of girls have this feeling, only
they are afraid to try farming and most farmers
won't give them a chance. As a matter of fact
farming Is just as easy as many kinds of house.
work. Last spring I ploughed and planted and
cultivated corn and it wasn't hard at alL"
"I want to tell the girl who longs to be a farmer
that she can be one it she tries. Just make some
farmer give her a chance and he'll soon see. She
will learn to breed and raise and handle stock
better than most men. I like the stock raising best
and I think I do best at that kind of work. A
woman Just seems to know how to care for anl
mals to get the best out of them. I condttlon
all our stock for the show and I feel sure of one
thing-no man can do it any better than I can."
Miss Justine is not manager of her father's farm.
she is just a helper on it. But there are women
in her.state, ten of them, who are acting as farm
managers on a salary. Many more women, farm
owners, are running the place themselves and they
are just as confident as she is that women can
succeed on farms.
Within the last four years the number of women
farmers has increased enormously, not only in
Kansas but all over the country. And in spite of
the fact that the farmers of the Northwest are
constantly saying ranch work Is too heavy for
women, one by one women are crowding in to
prove that they can and will succeed with it. In
past years most of these women ranchers have been
widows of ranchers who died leaving the place in
a going condition and it was only a matter of
keeping it going. Even so, men talked about these
women as if they were very superior pergons
whom no girl could hope to emulate. So the door
was closed and kept closed to the woman farm
helper; she could not get the chance for a start.
Women throughout the country, who are later
ested in farming, are now looking toward the
southwest, southwestern Californi a Arisona,
where there Is a chance for women to get started
with limited eapital. The ress for this, of cot ,
Is cheap land. And added to that is the warm,
climate and the hereastng posehbiltles for m_a
crp in soe sections. Miss Judith Bare, wha

rem Tsexas, where manI y womes have gaue

Miss Eleanor Hall, a college woman, who states
that she is makig some tw thosand doluars a
year out of sheep and urges other women to go
into the sheep business, which she cosiders par-e
ticularly suialted to women. kIis Hall works over
time during the lambinhy season. She takes bettcr

rancher thinaks worth while. It is noticeable, bhow

Up In Kansas again you might have found, for
a goodly number of years past. Mrs. Theodore
Saxon of Topeka. She was not a college farmer.
but having run her husband's two-section farm
for a good many years she knew a lot about ho
and crops and cattle.
Mrs. Saxon always said. "Any woman who can
do farm housework, wash and all, can do any
kind of farm work I ever came across." And when
someone said, as they always did, that women are
not good at lifting, she laughed, answering. "I'm
not saying they ought to lift but I am saying that
they do it all the time and a lot of them aren't
dead from it yet. Nobody ever did housework
without lifting and lifting heavy things too. I
know what work on a farm is and I say that the
out-door work is easier than the to-door work and
if anybody thinks it isn't, let him just try."
Another of these rugged farm women is Mrs.
Jennie Conrad of Conrad, Indiana, a breeder at
spotted Poland-China hogs who thinks that a
thousand bop a year is not too big an output for
her fatm. Mrs. Conrad believes that the woman
who like farming and knows about it ought to
have a chance at success, whether she has the
money to buy a farm or not. Mrs. Conrad says
women take naturally to stock handling akl that
a frst-class woman will excel any man at this
work. ThLs is not only because she knows and
understands the care of young creatures, whether
animal or human, but because she usually likes to
keep things clean. The cleaner any animal is
kept the less danger it runs from contagooms or
Infections.' This is just as true of a pig as It is
of a human being; they need to be kept clean, to
have their houses in a sanitary condition and
clean, fresh land for their playground.
The United States Department of Agriculture is
spending a great deal of money, right now, to
teach farmers how to prevent Intestinal worms la
bags. The prevention is cleanliness and this is
true not only with diseases of cattle, but of chick
ens, even of turkeys. Mrs. Conrad argues that the
average woman is naturally a scrubber, that she
doesn't have to be told to keep the barn white.
washed and the cows' tails scrubbed. Mrs. Con
rad says that farming is the coming business for
women, a business with a great future.
In her same group, among the well-establlshed
farmers must be mentioned Miss H. J. Wagner,
manager of a stock farm in Florida and said to be
the highest salaried woman farmer In this country.
Also there is Miss Eleanor 8. Miller, manager of
the famous Robert Bacon farm at Westbury, Long
Island. .This Is a five-hundred-acre farm but slate
a great stretch of its rich meadow land Is set
aside for a polo field and a barn-full of handsome
