Ann Arbor ladies seem to know how to enjoy themselves out camping, and seem to enjoy rural life in taking lessons in farming and becoming so proficient as to ride the solid comfort plow and drive the team. They do as good work as a man of forty years of experience in plowing. Young larmers, think of these things when buying a plow and getting out a license.
