My husband being too feeble to attend any outdoor business, gave me the privilege of running things out of doors as well as in the house. I rented the farm to a reliabhi, man except ten acres, .. ici , I made provision for nv dt riv. ing hetrse and one dairry 0cw an,, corn enough for family use. I also made two acres ofcotton for pocket change. My labor cost very little, as I hired it by the day, an 1 I had my crop cultivat ed exactly at the right time, wet or dry. My hired man said when he was, pulling fodder: "I 'clar yop is tot more corn on dese five acres dan tother folks whos been workin' two horses all de year.' I ha 1a snlendid garden and even now I have a plenty of nice cabbage growing, when all my neigh1brs are patronizing im ported vegetables. I canned 116 gallons of peaches, and I also have apples, pears, cherries, damsons, berries, hut ter beans, corn, snaps and to matoes galore. Will be able to sell enough canned goods to buy flour for myv family the whole year. 'Then 1 have turni--s, peas and rape to Ihave somneting to boil enery day this witter. i bought three pigs in th, early summer, from which 1 raisedl bacon enough to serve us twelve months. 1 have sowed clover, rye and rape for winter and spring Lzrazing. I have a beautiful lot of newv pullets to raise from. I have been selling milkand butter of ten through the year, and now, while I am resting on my oarsn, I am making pants for my neiglh bors who are not able to buy Sready-mahde clothes.
