Tho exceedingly dlvorne nature of

Q, What Ib an optimist?
A. An optimist is a man who,

of using an electric current in its

on u given farm. For liiHtanoc, the
wlno expenditure of capital Ih very
important. Again, In obtaining a

Farm management studies show,
however, that tho farmer whopo bus

a specialized cotton,, fruit, or dairy
farm, tho best measure of slzo of bus

acres in fruit, or number of cowh.
Tho amount of labor required In op

Thus, if a farm is devoted to a typo
of farming adapted to Its conditions,
If it is as good or bettor than the
uvorago in slzo of huslnoss, yiold ot
crops, production of llvo stock, and
enlcloncy In tho uso of labor, and is

that ueods attention in Improving tho
business. It tho quality of tho llvo
Htock Is big, groatcr improvement in
tho furm business can usually be ob
tained by dovoting attention to de
veloping tho slzo of tho businoBS or
salo of cash crops, or Increasing lab
or offlcloncy, rather than by further
Improving tho quality of llvo stock.
