Here's a Real Farmerette
Aunt Martha Spradley, age 83, living in Pigeon township, Warrick county, Indiana, Is as active an most women are at 30, and there is perhaps not another woman In this part of the state who can do the manual labor she does in a day. There is not a better horsewoman in this part of the state, and perhaps none can shoot a gun as accurately, walk as far haul more coal or cut more wood than this remarkable woman.
Mrs. Spradley is five feet ten inches In height, straight as an arrow, and never wore glasses or walked with a cane, she says she expects to live to be 100 years old. and she hopes to work to the last day of her existence.
This Warick county woman is a farmer who works her own land, consisting of 100 acres, and. as she remarked the other day. "It Is a farm on which most anybody else would starve to death." The woman has had good success with her crops and is regarded as one of the best and most systematic farmers In her neighborhood. She has fifteen acres of corn, thirty-one and a half acres of tobacco, five acres of cowpeas, five acres of meadow land, a large, patch of potatoes and a good garden. She has her corn in good shape and has plowed the entire crop herself. One morning recently she pulled her tbacco plants and set them out. She works from early morning to night and never seems to grow tired.
After Mrs. Spradley has laid by her crops each summer and has laid in her winter's supply of wood and kindling she hauls coal for all the school-houses In the nelehborhood. For about twelve years she has hauled all the coal for the schoolhouses within fifteen miles of her home. Mrs. Spradley says she can scoop a load of twenty-five bushels of coal from the bed of her wagon without stopping to rest.
Mrs. Spradley was born within two miles of the place where she has lived for the last sixty years, and has always made her home in Warrick country.
In 1848 she was married to James Spradley one of the well known early citizens of Warrick county, and they moved to the place where the aged woman now lives. Here they erected a cabin twelve by sixteen feet, and a few years later they built a large two-story log house. Mr. Spradley died in 1893 and since that time Mrs. Spradley and her daughter have been living together. The daughter does the housework, while the mother looks after the farm. She has three children and two sisters living.
Her sisters are Hannah Spradley. age 78, of Selvin. and Elizabeth Gray, age 87, of Oakland City.
