Keeping account. Is almost an aUso
lute necessity to a farmer's suecees. 1 f
, we ask a famier the cost of raising 100
bushels of wheat or making lOOpouuds
- of pork not one in a hu mired cau give
an answer baaed on actual flgurat. They
gucm a bushel of wheat ensta ao much,
but their guessing Is often wide of the
truth. The majority of farmers cauoot
tell the net Income of their fartus, aud
hardly know whether they are progress-
tag, standing still or retrogradintr.. If
merchant or manufactuier should
conduct hu business In this shlftWas
manner, we should expect him to fail,
and the reason that tinners do not fail
- Is that their business Is comparatively
limited. They live mainly within
themselves. The farmer supports the
family and the family takes care of the
farm. They would find their littoreet
in farming as well as their skill aud
profit to Increase if they would adopt
some mode of ascertaining how much
this and that crop costs, and cultivate
such crops and rear such animals as
are (bund by actual calculation to pay
the best. Uow are we to decide what
branches of farming are the most pro
fitable unless the figures of the farm
accounts show us?
Whoever makes accurate experiments
and keeps accurate accounts not only
benefits himself but the public. The
general principles of practical agricul
ture can never be established till we
have more of these accurate experi
ments on which to base them aud the
: practical methods of an Oregon farmer
are of much more value to an Oregon
fanner than those of a former in some
other section of the country.
Many seem to think that it is a great
burden to write down In the evening
the results of the day. They can handle
an ax or a plow for ten homes, but ten
minute work with a pen Is .Herculean
labor. But this is a mere imaginary
Hon in the keeping of accounts. It
only wants resolution to undertake the

easy. Perhaps the task mey be devolv.
ed on some young me'uber of the
family, whose fingers are not unused
to the pen or stiffened hy bard work.
A general farm account should be kept,
in which the farm is charged with all
its expenses, and credited, with all the
receipts. Beside this general farm ac
count a more minute record should be
kept of each crop, or each close of ani
mals, charging with all the labor, etc,
and crediting iwith all the returns,
whether sold or used in the family.

wisdom to every farmer who keeps it.
