Economy vs. False Economy
4 Nobody denies that "Economy"must
be the watchword in fruit districts
this year. That is admitted by all
But "Economy" is a word much
abused and "false economy" it worse
than none at all.
Economy does not mean a bull-headed
RESOLVE to squeeze the eagle
on every dollar till he screams.. . Nor
does economy mean hanging on to
every nickel regardless of conse
queneefc A dollar spent judiciously will al
ways save from one to ten or even
more later In the season.
Suppose you resolved not to spend a
cent this year for spray material.
You could devote your time to going
through the operations of spraying, us
ing clear water, because it didn't cost
you anything, at least It Is cheaper
than lime and sulphur.. .The chances
are you would lose your entire crop.
If you had spent $50.00 for pray ma
terial, you would have saved your
crop, and made perhaps a thousand
dollars. This (50.00, In other words,
would save you a thousand later
surely a good investment.
"Somewhat overdrawn" we hear
you ay and yet, through just such
false economy are you losing money
by using old implements which only
half do their work. Improvements
are being made every year on farm
tools, new implements are being in
troduced.. .All tend to a more econ
omical cultivation of the soil.
Fifty years ago, the cast iron walk
ing plow with a wooden beam was the
only Implement used to turn the soil,
and the prevailing motive power was
oxen. The cradle was the only har
vesting machine, and the flail thresh
ed the grain. Then the farmer could
haul the entire working paraphernalia
of his farm In one load. ..Since then
marvelous strides have been made In
developing and perfecting agricultural
To Improved farm machinery can
be attributed our ability to produce
enough to supply our needs, and a
surplus for other nations.. .Sixty-five
years ago we did not produce enough
Wheat to feed our own people, when
eighty per cent of the population lived
on the farms.. Today, with a greatly
increased population, consuming
double the amount of wheat per capi
ta, thirty per cent of our people are
producing an abundance for all and a
goodly amount to be exported.. .This
is all due to Implements which lessen
the time and cost of production
Sixty years ago it required three
hours of labor to raise one bushel of
wheat and today it requires but ten
minutes. The cost then was 17.3 cents
per bushel, now it is 32 cents.
It required four and one-half hour
to produce one bushel of corn; today
In 1860 it required thirty-five and
one-half hours to produce a ton of hay,
and now but eleven and one-half
hours. Then it cost in labor $3.00 per
ton; now, $1.29.
When we consider the great ad
vance In the cost of a day's labor
since then, we will have some Idea of
the part implements play in assisting
the farmer. We must also remember
that the price of farm machinery has
not advanced in proportion to farm
products and farm labor. The aggre
gate saving to the farmer on account
of improved implement represents a
large per cent of his net profits.
During the year 1900, implements
aved in human labor $682,000,000.
Last year the American farmer bought
$100,000,000 worth of mchinery, but It
saved for him in labor more than
As necessity demands It, It Is reas
onable to suppose that new Inventions
will further Increase the production
of the farm a"d decreace the cost.
There Is a moral to this well worthy
-of your earnest consideration.
We sell these labor saving devices,
and weliome the opportunity of prov
ing to you that a few dollars spent for
a new tool which will save you time
and money is true economy.
BUSINESS SIDE OF
A new 87-page bulletin on the busi
ness side of farming by Dr. Hector
Macpherson, Professor of Economi 8
at the Oregon Agricultural College is
now being distributed by the college
to the farmers of the state who re
quest It. The material for the bulle
tin, which Is entitled "Practical Prob
lems in Rural Economics," has been
carefully selected by the editor from
Information he has collected with the
assistance of progressive farmers of
Oregon and neighboring states.
The bulletin presents first a thor
ough discussion of some fo the Impor
tant problems of agricultural produc
tion, including general farming, dairy
ing and the co-operative. management
of creameries, condenseries and can
neries. The marketing question Is dis
cussed from every angle and specific
examples presented In evidence of the
advantages which have ben gained
by domestic communities in foreign
countries by the adoption of the co
operative system of marketing all
forms of farm products.
In the section of the bulletin dealing
with the purchase of farm supplies,
Dr. Marpherson gives the history of
the movement toward buying farm
supplies through the agency of the
various farmers' organizations and
cites local cases where the saving has
been us high as 40 per cent.
This publication is the second of a
series which the college expects to Is
sue from time to time In the Interest
