ALL FARM ACCOUNTS
SHOULD BE STANDARDIZED
Oregon Agricultural College, Corval
lis. Managing a business without ac
counts is like steering a ship without
a compass or driving a horse without
reins, said Dean J. A. Bexell In a lec
ture before the graduate school of ag
riculture at Amherst. Massachusetts,
on July 10.
The secret of success was said to
lie in a knowledge of past events and
ability to utilize the knowledge in bus
iness operations. Every successful
farmer is involved in a variety of fi
nancial transactions and mast observe
established business methods, la or
der to be most aoefjil farmers ac
counting methods should be standard
ized. The key note of modern business
efficiency is standardization. This is
seen in the Interchangeable parts of
machinery and other articles, and con
trol of railroads and other publie util
ities through uniform government re
ports, and conservation of human en
ergy by scientific management. It is
Just as necessary that business meth
ods, of the farm be standardized and
uniform as the business methods of
If the production of farm commodi
ties Is going to keep pace with the in
creasing demand, farm accounts must
be kept and kept in a systematic, uni
. If accounting systems are standard
ized they will serve as a basis for com
paring success and failure of neighbor
ing farms with a view to correct the
mistakes. With the young farmer just
starting in business the standardized
accounts would serve as a partial sub
stitute for experience.
Contrary to the usual understanding
of the matter the subject of farm ac
counts is not new, but was discussed
frequently by the ancients, especially
Pliny and Cicero.
How Delia Managed. '
A great deal of noise arose in the
nursery one morning, and since it
gave no promise of subsiding, Mrs.
Odell hurried in that direction. She
found the baby howling with might
and main and the new nursemaid sit
ing calmly by.
"Well, Delia, this is a terrible
noise!" cried Mrs. Odell angrily.
"What Is the matter? Can't you keep
the baby quiet?"
"Shure, mum," replied the girl, "but
I can't keep him quiet unless I let him
make a noise, mum."

Ship 12 Cars Fruit Daily.
Puyatlup, Wash With more than
8000 berry pickers in the valley and
the berries ripening very fast, Presi
dent W. H. Paulhamus, of the Fruit
Growers' association, said that the
association will ship a dozen cars of
berries a day for the coming week.
About 2000 pickers can still be used
in the valley, Mr. Paulhamus esti
mate.. Ranchers In the vicinity of
Puyallup are in greater need of pick
ers than are Sumner ranchers, because
most of the Puyallup berries are Ant
werp and Marlboros, and ripen much
faster than the uutDDerxa.
Umatilla Crop Promising.

Umatilla county a week or two late,
predictions are that a much larger crop

sections. Wheat ana nariey are ripen

most of the wheat sections shortly af

will be cut this year before AugUBt 1.
Hay Harvest Starts on Coast. 1
Marshfleld, Or. Haying season,
which comes later on the Coast than
elsewhere in Oregon, is in full swing
and the crop is abundant. The ranch
ers on Coos river have been busy with
their mowing machines for the past
week, and the Coquille valley farmers
are also harvesting their hay. Many
Coos county stockraisers depend upon
corn ensilage rather than hay and that
crop will be gathered later in the year.

If you Suffer from Backache, Lum
bago, Kidneys or Rheumatism,
Take Hot Water and " Anuric."
American men and women must
guard constantly against kidney trou
ble, because we eat too much and all
our food is rich. Our blood Is filled
with uric acid which the kidneys
strive to filter out, they weaken from
overwork, become sluggish; the ellm
lnative tissues clog and the result Is
kidney trouble, bladder weakness and
a general decline in neaun.
When your kidneys feel like lumps
l A whon vnnr hark hurts or the
urine is cloudy, full of sediment, or
you are obliged to seen reuei two or
three times during the night, when
you suffer with sick headache or dizzy,
nervous spells, acid stomach, or you
have rheumatism when the weather
is bad, get from your druggist "AN
URIC." Because of uric acid in over
abundance in the system, backache,
pains here and there, rheumatism,
gout, gravel, neuralgia and sciatica re
sult. It was Dr. Pierce who discovered
a new agent, called "Anuric" which
will throw out and eradicate this urio
acid from' the system. Dr. Pierce be
lieves "Anuric" to be 87 times more
potent than lithla, and consequently
you need no longer fear muscular or
articular rheumatism or gout, or many
other diseases which are dependent
on an.accumulatton of urio acid within
the body. Send Dr. Pierce, Invalids'
Hotel, Buffalo, N. Y., lOo. for trial
package or 11.00 for full treatment
Dr. Pierce's reputation Is back of
this medicine and you know that his
"Pleasant Pellets" for the liver and
hts "Favorite Prescription" for the ills
of women have had a splendid reputa
tion for the past f0 years. j
