Professor Benll, the author pt the

- "It la a truism to say that tbe fiaan
elal aid of farming is of tbe atsasst

this side of the world's greatest iadas

kow much it soot bint to proems milk
or to raise any of his crops.'
"Tb secretary of agriculture, in re
cent Year books, sointa out the remark
able prosperity oi the farmer; that the
export of farm products Is vastly in
excess of all other exports combiaed
that a. million agricultural debtors
have been transformed daring tb last
tea years iato the same number ox tur
plus depositors; that 'contrary to his
reputation, tbo farmer is a great er
gaaiser, aad ho has achieved remarks
bio and enormous success ss in many
linos of economic co-operation ia which
the people of other occupations have
either mad no beginning at all or have

"The importance off tha exchange
phase is often lost sight of. A farm
may be forced to yield to its asaximum
capacity, labor may be managed prop
erly ana wast reduced to a miaunu
and yet tbe net result may bo a loss
at tbe end of the year. . As a goaeral
economic proposition, it might bs said
that large crops often result in serious
loss to society as s whole. If tbs act

labor aad capital expended on the crop,
society is the loser by tbs difference.

borne in mind tbat the condition for

"Not mnny generations ago It wai
considered sufficient for the average
manufacturer merely to record bis cash

a tolerably accurate check oa tb cash
