tNDEX. 67 Dry measures are in common use, ' it is true, but they are seldom needed, and only for matters of minor importance, like the sale of a few bushels of apples, potatoes, or grain. Weighing is the simplest method of measuring all standard produce, and now almost universally used when quantities are involved. A wagon-load of wheat or of onions, instead of being measured by the bushel, is weighed, like a load of hay. The best way to keep the record of a cow ' s milk product is by weight; and it won ' t l)e long before eggs are sold by the pound. No grocer would think of doing business for a dav without scales of all sorts, but appliances for weighing, at least in any variety, are unusual on farms. A tape line, or a surveyor ' s chain in foot links, is an inexpensive article, and I believe every farm should have one and use it, that the size of every field mav be accuratelv measured and recorded, and the exact acreage of every crop known, not guessed at. And to appl - ordinary prudence and system to one ' s business affairs, the farm equipment should include scales of such capacity and variety as to enable a complete record of everything going into the barn or store-house, and of everything consumed or sold. In place of estimates and rough guesses, ' there should be a correct record of almost every occurrence on the farm involving time or quantity, product, purchase, or sale. Some time and some money are needed to start such a .system and keep it up. But experience proves that the time necessary to substitute absolute knowledge for the usual guess-work in farming is far less than one would suppose, and that it soon proves to be true economy. In like manner, the cost of scales and measures is soon saved by their use in place of guessing, as in the case of other useful farm tools. In short, it don ' t pay to depend upon guess-work on the farm, when it is so easy to have instead that sys- tematic management, mathematical accuracy, and proper records, which lie at the foundation of success in every busiaess. A. All butter and cheese factories handle milk by weight.
