"Although it is during the periods under discussion that the farmer suf- fers the greatest immediate losses, yet these periods are by no meaus entirely detrimental. If they are properly guarded against, their unde- sirable effects can be often avoided splendid results so from his neighbors. vastly different The owner smil- I ingly led me out to the implement shed where he pointed to a home- made implement and said 'This 'is the implement that has done it all.
