The MUUke of the Farmer.
The secretary of the Kansas Board
of Agriculture has been making an
investigation of the cost of producing
the different farm staple of tho state,
says the Globe-Democrat, aud his fig
ures, based upon reports from every
county, form an interesting and in
iitracti vu contribution to the discussion
of the most Important of current in-
austnai problems, lie mm mat uie
cost varies iu different localities, ow
ing to the difference in the yield per
acre and in the rental value of lands.
Taking the state as a wholo tho aver
age cost of growing a bushel of whoat
is 50 cents and of corn 21 cents. The
bulk of both of these products for sev
eral year past has been sold at prices
falling below these figures. Thus it
requires no labored process of arith
metic to show that the Kansas farmers
who have been raising wheat and corn
have lost money ; and (he samo is true
regarding the fanners of Missouri and
Illinois, Iowa and Nebraska. In cer
tain sections of all of these states said
crops have yielded a fair profit; but
generally speaking they havo not paid
expenses. This presents tho whole
situation at a glance, as far as the two
leading western 6tatcs are concerned.
Is it any wonder that men doing busi
ness under such conditions are not
able to pay ott' mortgages as they fall
due or to' nut money in the bank for
future comfort nnd happiness?
It is easy to say that llie larmers are
not to blame because their occupation
hno thus become u 11 remunerative: but
as a matter of strict fact they are
themselves largely responsible for tho
depression which puts them at such a
disadvantage. They have known for
sometime that there was no money iu
wheat and corn, and yet they have
trnnn on m-oducinsr them in tho larg
est possible quantities as if they were
somehow compelled to do so. iney
mijiht nave raised oilier crops lor
which there was a constant and profit
able demand. Their lands could have
been devoted to uses which would
have guaranteed them satisfactory re
turns everv vear. Bv persistimr in the
policy of producii'g year after year
more than was wanted 01 tnet-c two
articles they havo simplv done what
ihev could to make matters worso in
stead of taking judicious steps to im
prove it. The idea that a farmer is
obliged to continue raising wheat and
corn because that has always been tnc
rule will not stand the test of reason
and common sense. In agriculture, as
in every other business, success de
pends upon intelligence. The things
produced must bo adnptcd to the
wants of the purchasing clement. It
is idle lo hope for bctlcr prices so long
as the amount offered is in excess of
the amount desired. To produce more
when there is alivady enough is mere
ly to aggravate tbe evil and not to ic
movo or modify it. If there had been
a proper diversification of crops in the
last thrco or four years tho present
distress would not have coino to pass.
In that sense, therefore, the farmers
are blamable. They missed their op
portunity and failed fa recognize the
necessity of changing their plan of op
erations. The lesson is a severe ore,
but it may prove iu the end to be
most salutary and valuable.
