ARMING on high priced Innd
must bo conducted on business
principles If the urontcst prof
its nre to bo realized. The
work is by no means done
1 ' T raised a large crop of
corn or succcijlu'.l.v fattened a cnr-
load of steers , lie must be n''le to
market his produce at a prollt and
must also know whether the stiers
were fed at a prollt or a loss and what
It costs to produce each crop of gral.i
It is a fact that the only way to
know just what you are doing and
Just what parts of your farm are
brlngln ; ' . In a proilt and what ones arc
being run at u loss is to "keep books. "
Tin's floe's not necessarily mean a com
plicated system that will require hall
your time to keep in shape , lly a lit
tle care the method of keeping accounts
can be so systematized as to amount
to only n few moments n week.
The flrst and most important book la
the check book. The "check book hab
it" will often save a great deal of
money and trouble. If you lose your
check book or have It stolen , you still
Ijavo your money left. You do not
have to waste time trying to make
change , since the check can be always
made out for exactly the right amount.
When you give .1 man a check In pay
ment for what you owe him , he must
sign that check before he can draw
the money on it. At the cud'of every
mouth the bank returns these signed
checks to you , and you thus have re
ceipts for all the money you paid out
during the month.
For general accounts any good sized
blank book will answer. There are a
number of specially made farmers' ac
count books , but a blank book which
you can rule to suit yourself will be
Just as good or better. The first page
should be devoted to an Inventory of
the stock , grain and machinery , to
gether with their value. Following
this should be a map of the farm.
Next to this should come the cash
account. A convenient and simple
way of arranging this is as follows :
In order to know what crops are
bringing In a prollt niul what ones , If
any , arc unprofitable It Is necessary
to keep some sort of an account of
them. This account must be simple
and easily kept , for If It takes too much
time It Is sure to bo neglected. The
following page headings show a con
venient method of keeping account of
the Held crops :
This gives nn estimate that is accu
rate ) enough to give a very good Idea
of what It costs to produce each par
ticular crop. In figuring the cost of
labor enough should ho added to pay
for the use of the machinery. The
cost of seed will Include cleaning , testIng -
Ing and other preparation. Perhaps
the best way to llguro the value of the
manure applied Is to Include It In the
rout of the land. Thus the corn crop ,
which receives the Pnt benefit from
the manure , can bo clir.r id a higher
rent on this account. The amount
charged to the oat crop will bo less ,
while the clover crop , which really
adds to the fertility of the land , will
pay the lowest rent of all. Where the
grain is fed on the farm there will of
course bo no charge for marketing.
The cost of clover need , which is sown
with the oats , should bo chnrgcM to
the next year's clover crop.
Following the expcuso account
thotild come a profit and loss page :
A glajice nfo this lyi p will show
which crops are the most profitable
on.cs. In casci n certain crop docs not
show the profit that It should an
other crop should be substituted for It
or different methods of culture
Similar pages shquld bo arranged
for the different'classes of live stock
The following wdll serve as n sample :
Once a year these twoipuges can bo
balanced , and you can BCHJ just where
you Hjuiul In the hog business. In
addition to the expense and Income
pages for the different classes of
stock there should be pages for keeping
track of " works"
ing "changing at
thrashing time , for breeding records ,
for butter and cream , for poultry and
for any other special line In which
you arc Interested. Lining up and
arranging the pages will make a
good rainy day's job for some of the
children , and after that the time re-
iiulral to keep the accounts In shape
will bo too small to be noticed.
Business methods In marketing are
Mso necessary If the best results are
to bo obtained. A dally market paper
Is Indispensable in keeping posted on
the slock and grain markets and will
pay for Itself several times over. In the
course of a year. A telephone Is also
valuable for obtaining up to the min
ute market reports on special occa
sions. In keeping In touch with the
local butter , egg and poultry markets
the telephone Is especially valuable. It
Is als a time saver In many other
ways , 8ii much so that the up to dtto
business farmer cannot afford to bo

320 ACRE FREE HOMESTEAD ,
WYOMING , COLORADO AND MONTANA : The Mondelt Homestead -
stead law makes provisions for 320i acre homesteads in certain
localities , instead of the usual ICO acre tracts. The requirements
of the law are practically the same regarding residence , improve
ments and cultivation. These lands are going fast ; if you want a
hotnuatead close to the railroad you should act now.
CROPS AND RAIN FALL Visitors to the Omaha Corn Show
will remember the magnificent diapjay of farm products from
Weston County , Wyoming , grown on exactly the same kind of
land that can now be taken in 320 acre homesteads. The Mondell
Act includes lauds that receive from 16 to 21 inches of rain fall
annually and you only need to see the crops grown by the farmers
already located there , to be convinced. These homesteads can be
taken along the Burlington's new line now building in Wyoming.
I personally conduct excursions the first and third Tuesdays of
each month to these lands , and am employed by the Burlington to
answer all inquiries , and to assist you in every possible way to
locate along the Burlington Lines. Write for new folder and map
of these lands
