CONSTANCE KEANE, School House

Farm Labourers.

I have been working on the land from six-thirty a.m. till seven-thirty p.m. every day. The work has been really rather interesting, since I was the only woman there and the only person of a non-labouring class, so I got a good insight into farm life. Feeding fowls, pigs and calves, milking cows, tending sheep, cleaning stables, driving and harnessing horses, threshing and harvesting, fell to my lot, so I now feel quite an expert at farming ! It was very strenuous work, and as a result I am very strong and muscular.
