A. of tae Oregon Agricultural College, spoke at tho Dry Farming Congress on'Tarm Business and contend- ed that tie boy problera would be more nearly solved if ibe farm were made more businesslike and slipshod methods were cast aside. He said it part: Numerous systems of farm accounts have been prepared, but few have been adopted by the practical fann- er. Whatever merits are fos any system of farm records, one must be paramount: Simplicity. The farm- er is usually a very busy man. His difficulty is neither ignorance nor indolence, has but little time; for. fancy .bookkeeping and still less. for red tape. What he wants is a plain, simple, straightforward history his business, so arranged and class- ified as to require the minimum effort to keep it up. All things considered single-book system has met witt the greatest favor, both for the cash book and the ledger, The inventory may be considered the basis of any system of farm re-; cords. In this sytem a good substan- tial day book is. used for the current history of the business. It should be taken at a time as will give the most accurate results with the least expend! :urc of labor. No guesswork should be tolerated. Either the actuai market value or the sale value shoulo be assigned, taking due regard of the; depreciation. Regarding depreciation it is impossible to lay down invariable rules, as to the rates to be charged off annually. For the purpose of genera] estimates, the following rates or the cost of market value are fairly accur- ate: Buildings, 5 per cent.; horses. above eight years, milch cows, Better lucfc with your you have a I "Happy five years, 8 per -cent.; machinery and tools, 10 per cent.

He must learn hot only how to increase produc- tion, but also" no facilitate profit- able exchange -of h7s products. must reduce the .cost of .production .to 'No guessing contest ever in- vented beats baking day for un- certainty.

GROWS REST PASS MINES ARE VERY BUSY AT PRESENT Some days ago the Herald had a count of scarcity of orders but be- aispatch from the Crow's Nest Pass to the effect that the mines there were not running over" -half their ca- pacity. The Blainnore Enterprise taices exception to the statement and to bear out its contention gives the following information which has all the earmarks of being The Enterprise says: "To show what a faisiler the writ- er to the Eethbritlcre paper is, v.v wil.1 give a few proofs. During the first two weeks in September the Inter- national Coal Coke Co., at Cole- inan, mined tons of coal. And, although this was a record breaker for that company, they were even then unable to supply the orders for their coal.

The miners of this company' were not idle on ac- cause oi' car shortage. The McGillivery Creek Coke Co., at 'Carbondale (near Coleman.) are working their mines fall time and r'iBd that the demand for' their coal is greater than the out.put. The West Canadian Collieries, with mines at Blairmore, Lille, and Belle- vue, receive more orders every day than they can. posi-bly fill. The" mines at the two lattetr places have 'been wording full time. The Blairmore mines have never been idle for the want of markets aor the coal but have been closed only when cars have not 'been obtainable. The orders for the JBlairmore coal are increasing every day and it would'indeed be poor busi- ness policy If a coal company -with such a demand for its product as that direct falsehood and they cannot un- aerstp.nd what prompted any person to make such a damaging statement. We have always considered the ridge Herald to -be a reliable newspaper and we would not for one moment have our readers think; that if the editor, of 'that paper had known' that the matter re-f erred to above was incorrect, he would have pub- lished the said article in his paper."
