© IKDEX-. — Guess-work on the Farm — IN these days of sharp competition, narrow margins of profit, close calcu- lation, and the application of mathematical accuracy to the conduct of almost all human occupations, it is astonishing that the business of farming is still often carried on in such a loose way. In many cases it is very largely guess-work. Every merchant and manufacturer knows that to escape bankruptcy he must closely observe business principles, and must atJeast keep accounts, simple, perhaps, but complete and accurate. A good many farmers, on the Other hand, don ' t so much as keep a cash account : thev know how much money there is in the wallet, but, beyond this, their financial affairs are very misty, and the income and outgo judged only by guessing, more or less shrewd. Yet farming is a business — indeed it is le business of the coun- try, upon the success of which all others depend.. The fai mer is a mer- chant and a manufacturer, and much more, and, of all persons, he is the one who should conduct his affairs on the strictest business principles. The very fact that farming so often utterly disregards fundamental business maxims and methods without utter ruin is, in itself, the strongest evidence that it is a business offering unusual security and a wide margin of profit when properly managed. Every farmer ' s boy knows all the tables of weights and measures " b} ' heart, " but how little these are used on the farm. Even the size of the farm itself is a matter of uncertainty, dependent upon an old and unverified deed or the books of the assessor. There is no accurate knowledge of the size of the various fields, or their actual produce, — all is guess-work. The farmer guesses which cow eats the most, and guesses which gives the most milk, and guesses which milk is the richest, and so guesses at the merits and profit of all his stock, with very little actual knowledge as to any. And in the house, they guess that the cream is just warm enough to churn, and guess it would pay to become patrons of the creamery. It is a wonder that clocks and watches are used in such places, instead of depending upon the sun, and in cloudy weather guessing at the time of day.
