TALK OF ESTABLISHING
STAR MAIL ROUTE
Postmaster J. N. Coffman reports
J.0 The News that the Post Office
Department at Washington, D. is
seeking information from the differi
ent towns between Pittsburg and
Jefferson, as to the amount of mail
matter sent out from these towns,
with the view of restoring night
mail service between Pittsburg and
Jefferson with a star mail route,
provided the postal receipts at these
points are large enough to justify
the; government to put this service
into effect. ,
Night mail service was discontin-
ued between Pittsburg and Jeffer-
son on August 1, when the L. R. &
N. Ry., took off its night trains be-
tween these two points, and it is to
be hoped that the government will
devise some means by which it can
restore this service at the earliest
possible date.—Daingerfield News.
When the days are hot
Folks grouch a lot,
Such arid weather durning;
When days are cold
They fume and scold,
For torrid climates yearning.
When the days are wet
They wail and fret—
They go around complaining;
And when it’s dry
They moan and cry
Because it isn’t raining.
Thus men expose
Their foolish woes,
Their burdens, their distressings,
And with a croak
Their gods invoke,
Unthankful for their blessings.
In Beulah Land,
That distant strand
Where changeless suns are shining.
I’ll bet one bone
Some saints I’ve known
Around the Throne are whining.

hFARM PAY BETTER
Farm Accounting Reveals Losing
Methods and Points Way to
A farm cannot properly be called
successful unless it pays a fair rate
of interest ou the investment and re-
turns fair wages for the farmer’s la-
bor. Agriculture is considered by all
odds the most important industry in
the world, and yet In no other indus-
try is the business end so neglected.
It is common to And a farmer with
an Investment of tlfteen to twenty
thousand dollars, yet does he keep
books? Perhaps he may jot down a
note now and then of an important
deal, but this is of no value In an
analysis of his business as a whole.
No other industry, however small, is
carried on without books of some
Farming is a business and to be
successful must be conducted in a
businesslike way. The business man’s
mind should have indelibly printed
upon It two questions: What profit is
my business making? How can that
profit be increased? To know the lat-
ter, one must find out the former: and
to find out about profits requires the
keeping of books.
It is not necessary for a farmer to
have a course in bookkeeping. Al-
most every agricultural college in the
country has issued a simplified farm
accounting book which it sells at cost,
and only a few minutes are required
each day to jot down the day’s hap-
Accounts Increase Profits
Instances number a thousandfold
where farmers have profited by know-
ing their business. Accounts kept by
nineteen farmers in Illinois led them
to improve the organization and oper-
ation of their farms in ways that add-
ed approximately $650 to their aver-
age net income in 1922, the seventh
year they had kept accounts.
An Iowa farmer found at the end of
the first year he kept books that crops
fed to livestock brought more money
than when sold outright His figures
showed that his cows were poor;
compared with other farms in the
state, he found the number of acres
cultivated per man on hlii farm, as
well as the number of acres per horse,
Were below average.' He rented more
land and replanned his fields, so that
the crop areas per man and horse
were Increased. He sold som* of his
scrubs and bought good cows. The
second year hia income from the

farm, after paying all expenses and
interest on the money invested, had
been increased over $350.
Costs Can Be Regulated
“I have discovered,” says one farm
bookkeeper, "that the kind of man
you have on a job, as well as the
particular team, often makes quite a
variation in the cost of performing
certain tasks. I have learned from
the pages of my book that if I could
have increased the yield of my wheat
field by two bushels and my corn by
five bushels I would have realized a
substantial profit from them.”
While the farmers may not be able
to fix prices on their products, they
do have a voice in determining the
costs of production. To reduce this
cost they must first know what the
The number of farmers who are
keeping books on their business has
increased remarkably in recent years,
but the number of businesslike farm-
ers Is woefully small when listed
alongside the sum total of the farm-
ers in the country.
Inventory Is Indispensable
The basis of any Bystem of farm ac-
counting iB the annual property list
or inventory. It is the starting point
of the farm records. One must take
into consideration decreases or in-
creases in the value of all property
owned to gauge the progress of the
business. Lacking facts as to the
value of his property, no business man
can form an accurate estimate of how
he stands financially. Increased cash
may be due to property which was
sold, or Increased debts may be due
to improvements made. If a farmer
is falling behind, the Inventory will
emphasize this fact. Often when a
man- la discouraged and thinks he is
making no progress, his Inventories
will tet! him that he is better off than
At the end of each year a financial
statement is drawn off. This is the
