In order to know what progress is being made in farm operations and to determine what crops or branches of farming are producing the greatest profits, It is necessary for the fanner to keep a system of accounts, say specialists of the United States Department of Agriculture. The practice will not of Itself turn a poor farm Into a rich one, a poor farmer into a good one, or losses Into profits, but farm records, If accurately kept and intelligently utilized, are an aid to a better understanding and insight into the farming business. The keeping of accounts need not take a great amount of time nor Is it necessary to hnve an elaborate system. Two Kinds Advisable. Farm records may be roughly divided Into two heads records of happenings and records of money transactions. The former proves useful 1 &yr 4 ULJLLllill 'crsss , f 'r't?

The Inventories of two dates, a year apart, show whether progress or retrogression has occurred during the year and definitely measure the desrree of change. Taken In conjunction with a cash account for- the yenr. the Inventory shows how much lias been made by farming and to what extent the per- snnal and household expenses have offset profits.

The proper size of a container depends upon the desires of the customers. Most persons wish to obtain-smal- l quantities of each product at a time. Containers should be just for the produce shipped.

Among the happenings that should be recorded are the dates when animals are bred, men Stall Should Be Supplied With Ample Bedding Sunshine and Exercise Are Necessary. set, spring work begins and fall work ends, seed time and harvest occur, etc. Such notes as these, when systematically recorded and constantly referred to, are of much value. The most Important use ninny farmers make of the records of cash received and paid out Is as a means of checking up bills when sent In to see whether all payments have been duly credited. While this alone Is only a small part of the value which can be derived from such records. It will frequently justify the time required to keep them. When the year's record Is made tbe cash account can be assembled under headings that will show exactly what each branch of the fnrm activities returned In cash and whnt each required to keep It going. Some farmer are apt to Judge the Importance of the various farm projects by the time required to put them through. To such, a complete cash record for a year, properly assembled, will be an eye opener.
