WHERE THE fROFIT LIES.
The margin of profit is now so
close on all products, either of the
farm or of ihe factory, that the great
problem is to make everything cut to
the best advantage. A few years
ago and a very large proportion of
the weight of , cattle and hogs was
lost or wasted ; now nothing is wast
ed, bui every part is made to bear
its share of the original cost. Farm
ers used to be content with getting
crops off the plowed fields, earning
everything they raised by the severest
kind of labor. The American Farm
er says that what, they had to sell
then brought good prices and what
they wanted to buy they got cheap.
Now prices are so uncertain that the
farmer never can tell until his crop
has been ' actually sold whether he
has farmed to a profit or not.
The ' farming in- this "country is
done on a much more scientific prin
ciple than it was a few years ago,
and the farmer is learning to make
good use of all his .opportunities,' but
still he fal's far short of making, the
best use of his farm. That is, he
does not get so much out of the soil
as he ought to. - The trouble is, the
farmer can see no profit in anything
but the grain or the grass he culti
vates. The facts are that if the
farmer would pay attention to the
small things, wit!) a very slight out
lay in the beginning and none after
ward, except a little labor now and
then, he might add materially to his
There is hardly a' farm in the West
that could not be made to earn from
tlOO to $300 each year for the owner,
without any outlay, except, perhaps,
a few dollars in the beginning. Let
us give a few illustrations: There
is now a growing demand for per
simmons. All the hotels of the coun
try are furnishing them as a table
delicacy. Every persimmon tree,
when in full bearing, will net the
owner, if the fruit is carefully gath
ered and prepared for mai ket, from
$2 to $4 every year. The tree re
quires but little care .in cultivation.
The greatest care required is when
the fruit is gathered. There is hard
ly a farm of ten or more acres but
could find room for at least fifty of
these trees in spcts now unused. Fifty
trees would be worth every year at
least $100. -
Too little attention is paid to the
cultivation of nut trees. In fact,
except in a few localities, no care at
all is taken of them. If the farm
has a few nut trees, well and good.
They are left without care, and when
the fall comes the fruit is left to. the
boys. If they feel like gathering
them and taking them to market
they lire permitted to do so and that
is all. Pecans can readily be raised,
especially in southern Indiana. The
tree readily responds to cultivation.
The . same is true of chestnuts, and
the English walnut has been culti
vated with great success. Every nut
tree, if properly cultivated, is worth
from $3 to $5 annually. When the
farmer has put out his fifty persim
mon trees, if he will look around a
little he will find room for . fifty nut
trees, and thus in a few years will be
able to. add largely to his income,
with but little labor.
If you have a low, wet place on
your farm, or a piece of woodland
that you now consider as useless, try
it with peppermint. .There is always
a demand for the oil, made by dis
tillation, and a very small, piece of
ground, with' a little labor, can be
made to yield a very large profit, a
profit that will beat dollar wheat
clear out of sight.
All these things can be raised on
what have hitherto been unuse4 snots
on your farm. If half the labor ,Is
bestowed on them that is required
to take care of an acre of wheat, the
return will be far greater than the
wheat will give. Cut close! Make
every fence corner pay its way, and
you will never have occasion to com
plain of hard iimes,and will be ready
for the tax collector when he comes
around. Pendleton Tribune.
Thousands are Trying It.,
In order to prove the great merit of
Ely's Cream Balm, the most effective care
for Catarrh and Cold in Head, we have pre
pared a generous trial size for 10 cents.
Get it of your druggist or send 10 cents to
ELY BROS., C6 Warren St., N. Y. City.
I suffered from catarrh of the worst kind
ever since a boy, nud I never hoped for
cure, but Ely's Cream Balm seems to do
even that. .Many acquaintances have used
it with excellent results. Oscar Ostrum,
45 Warren Ave., Chicago, HL.
Ely's Cream Balm is the acknowledged
cure for catarrh and contains no cocaine,
mercury nor any injurious drug. Trice,
tO cents. At druggists or by mail. '
A No. 1 bookkeeper would .like some
thing to do in his line, or steady employ
ment. Will open or close books, change
from single to double entry, and make
trial balance or business statement. I
have highest recommendations; know
my business sni am willing to earn my
salary. C. M. Sisso.v, City. det-2J52.
