The Young Farmer's Need of a
Yearly Business Inven
The young farmer who is endeavor
ing to build up a more elllcienl and I
profitable business seldom retains
j much cash. When money is received
he buys a new implement, another1
I animal, improves u building, or makes
payments on bills for things bought
on credit. During the course of the
year he may receive and pay out
large sums of money, leaving almost
no cash at the end of the year. The
annual returns may seem to have been
only a fair living for himself and fam
ily, .whereas the farm business may
have turned a good profit, which was
invested from month to month. Hence
it is Important for the farmer's guid
ance and erie?ufagenlent that he make
an annual inventory of his farm in
vestments. This inventory should be
a detailed lls.t, with values, of every
thing used h> the farm hublness. in
cluding land, buildings, llv.i i stock,
machinery and tools, produce for feed
or suie, supplies, bills receivable, and
cash; also a list of all accounts and
bills owing. The difference between
the total assets and debts shows t.,
net farm worth.
A study'of.two successive inven
tor of a farm' In New- York -State Il
lustrates how one young farnvv on
100 acres prospered regardless of the
fact that he hud almost no cash at the
end of the year. The total assets at
the beginning of the year amounted to
S13.090 and to $13.400 at- the end of
the same yeur, an increase of $310.
The increased Investment, in live
Stock? machinery,'and tools, and more
produce held for sule amounted to $1.
073. but this was partially offset by
the cash decrease uf $763. The farm
indebtedness was also reduced , by
$253, thus makiug a total increase in
not worth to the farm business of
$563. The. Inventory values covered
all depreciations and Increases . in
values, so that this $563 was net iu
crease in Ihe value of the farm In
vestment. It means that this sum was
saved from the .year's business after
all farm expenses had been paid, in
cluding Intorefi borrowed money and
all living expenses. The amount of
cash at the end o" the year. $13:?. prov.

IT It ST ATTEMPT CNSITCESSFI L
Thau's Attorney* Fail to Cet Tcsll
many Hefsre Jury,
NEW YORK. March 0.?Attorneys
for Harry Kendall Thaw, Blaycr of
Stanford White, today made their first
attempt to. get testimony concerning
his sanity into the record of his trial
for conspiring to escape from Mattea
wan. The attempt v.-a a unsuccessful.
It was while William Gordon, u
Beacou. X. Y., hotelkeeper, was on
the witness stand that Justice Page,
before whom the trial of Thaw and
five co-defendants is in progress in
the criminal branch or the supreme
court, sustained the prosecution's ob
jection ugainst the introduction of
Buch testimony. It was understood,
however, that the ruling applied solely
to Gordon's testimony. |
Gordon, ufler telling 'of the many
visits Thaw made to.his hotel, while
on Ids way to anjf from habeas cor
pus proceedings which he instituted,
was aBked by Thaw's ,couL\e) wbc/her
the defendant appeared to be fu'Jy ra.
"louai at all times.
The prosecution objected, pointing
out that the witness had admitted it
was quite a while prior to the day of
the escape that he last had talked with
Thaw. Moreover, tho prosecution con
tended, the solo issue to be decided
was the guilt or the defendant and his.
In upholding the objections Justice
Page said ilia'- if it was the idea of
Thaw's, counsel to show through the
witness - Gordon that Thaw was of
sound mi.nd at the time-of his escape,
he thought hin testimony on that sub
ject necessarily must be "remote."
- John B. Stanchfield. chief of Thaw's
legal advisers, asserted after adjourn
ment late today that he Would make
a further attempt tomorrow to got
testimony unice?ning Thawi'a sanity
before the Jury. The defenseicf Thaw
hfngeB on the claim that'he "was sane
at the timo of, his escape and was be
ing detained illegally. --,
Franklin Kennedy, special deputy
attorney general in charge of the pros,
ecutlon, anounced tonight that ho ex
pected to complete the State's | case
by tomorrow afternoon.
Aside rrom Gordon's tcBtlraony, vir
tually all the evidence taken today
had to do with the renting of th? big
automobile in which Thaw, tied as. far
aB New Hampshire, tho.liresence and
actions In Holland nud the hotel at
Beacon, N. Y.a which adjoin Matten
