Every one knows what a waste of labor every now
and then occurs when there is a break down in a
machine. Sometimes wastes oi this kind cannot T>e
avoided by ordinary foresight, but very often they can
if the farmer will keep himself fully advised as to the
exact condition of his tools. Inefficient help is another
very common source of waste, and as things go, there
is too much of a disposition to regard a farm hand as
a farm hand; whereas, the truth is that, comparatively,
some of them are only half a hand and some of them
are a hand and a half. The farmer who employs the
former kind very considerably increases his cost of pro
duction and hence occasions waste.- Poor teams, teams
in bad order for work, that have poorly fitting collars
and that from one cause or another are liable to break
down or that have to be nursed and cannot be called
upon to do full work when work is most needed, are
another common source of waste, and it is generally
an avoidable waste if reasonable foresight be exercised.
