SPRINGFIELD, BACA COUNTY, COLORADO, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28,1913.
SUCCESSFUL DRY FARMING
Four years ago Miss Edith
Martin, twenty-four years of age,
worked for the Colorado Fuel &
Iron Company as a stenographer
in the retail office of the company
at Pueblo. For the last four
years she has been running a
dry farm in Kiowa county. She
has not only paid her expenses,
but has been able to save about
SI,BOO. This young girl while
working as a stenographer made
a study of dry farming. She
finally decided she could make it
go and Iwent to Kiowa county,
where she took up 160 acres of
land 10 miles northwest of Eads.
Her nearest neighbor was four
miles away. She planted
maize, kaffir corn and Spanish
peanuts by hiring her plowing
done and with some help in the
planting season. She tended the
crops with her own hands for
the most part, and only for a
bout two weeks during the
growing period did she hire
help. She has bought enough
livestock to consume the crops
and has money in the bank.—
