Bookkeeping of Great Importance to Farmer.
(Written by Arthur J. Hill for Illinois to write it up every evening. This
Very few farmers try to keep any
complete set of accounts, or if they do,
'- only, the caslj accounts are attempted.
The public scho(ls do not teach farm
bookkeeping, and the farmer looks
upon a set of accounts as something
too difficult' and mysterious for him to
carry out. But the fact is, the econom
ical management of a farm requires
the keeping of full accounts just as
truly as does the business of the man
in town. The farmer must know what
he in making or losing in each lniu of
work or investment, in order to avoid
losses and do tin; best that can be
done. The thoughtful, progressive
farmer will be glad to know of an
' easy system of accounts that will give
. him a full and constant view of his
business and that will require but 5
to15 minutes work ich evening to
keep posted. Joseph It. Fulkerson of
Jcrseyville has developed such a sys
tem and has found it very successful
for several years in recording the
whole business of a large live stock
farm. He describes his bookkeeping
Tlie Work Hook.
We keep a work book at Hazel Dell
farm. It takes but five or ten minutes'
diary gives the name of each man who
worked ajid states the kind of work, I
how long he worked, and in what field.
These daily entries form a complete
labor record for the year. Here is a
"John Jackson cultivated twin, field
Xo. 3, second' time over, two horses,
half day; started binder and cut wheat
in field No. 5. three horses, half day."
To get at the cost of making beef
and pork, a feed book is kept. It is
written up every Saturday night, and
shows the average amount and kind
of feed consumed by each bunch of
live stock and the number of animals
in each bunch during the week. From
this we can figure very close to the
cost of the animals at marketing time.
Following is a sample record from this
''Fifty-six steers were on grass in
cast pasture getting 1( baskets of
broken corn per day. Two milk cows
and nine with 11 calves in lot and up'
per pasture; five ears each twice a day
to the milk cows.'
When steers are fed the corn is
weighed in the bulk and figured at 70
pounds to the bushel.

to get the business record in such
shape that it will be simple, condensed
and plain. We want to do the mini
mum of writing and yet to have the
ledger show every transaction at a
lance without referring to several
other books. We use simnlv a dav
book and ledger of the single entry
form kept by the double entry system.
Our day book is a "counter book"
or "order book" for writing with pen
cil and costs but 5 cents or 10 cents.
The day's transactions should be re
corded every evening and for this it
is not necessary to get pen and ink or
even to wash one's hands. When con
venient, the oftener the better, these
items should be posted to their proper
accounts in the ledger. Following are
some samples of the day book entries:
