Farm Accounts.
Do you keep an exact account of
your income and expenses, or do you
regard your bank book and check
book as the sole source of record?
Does a bank balance of $500 at the
end of the year mean that you have
saved $500? Does a debt of $500 at
the end of the year mean to you that
you have lost $500 during that year?
Just the opposite may be true of the
above instances. A good system of
accounts is the best way to be certain
whether you are a success or failure.
Do you know which farming opera-
tion gives you the greatest return for
your investment? Do you know how
much you have made from corn,
wheat, hay, hogs, cows or any other
item of your farm income?
These are a few of the ways a farm
account book will be a help to you.
They may be obtained at the farm bu-
reau office at cost and they will be
very glad to help you start an account
book at any time through the year
that you may need help. It is not safe
to guess. How long would a business
firm continue in business without a
good accounting system? The suc-
cessful farmer of today must also be
a good business man. April first is a
good time to start.
Regarding Washington’s Birthday.
Washington’s birthday on Tuesday
was not characterized by any special
celebration in Bellefonte except by the
postoffice and banks, which observed
it as a national holiday. And just
here the question might be asked,
how many boys and girls, and grown
people might also be included, know
off-hand the exact date of Washing-
ton’s birth? While a certain per-
centage might know the year, it is
highly probable that there are very
few who really know that Washing-
ton was born on February 11th, and
not the 22nd, the day we now cele-
brate as his anniversary.
To be exact he was born on Febru-
ary 11th, 1732, when the United
States reckoned time according to the
old Julian calendar. Twenty years
.: later, or in 1752, the United States in
"conformity with Great Britain, adopt-
‘* - country’s
sed the Gregorian calendar as the
standard for computing
time, and in doing “so just dropped
i, February 11 under the Julian calendar
i 'was then February 22 under the Gre-
VY gorian calendar, and thus it has re-
mained ever since.

Removing Diseased Chestnut Trees.
Contractors are rapidly removing
the diseased chestnut trees from the
Logan state forest in Centre and
Huntingdon counties, according to a
report sent to the Pennsylvania De-
partment of Forestry by district for-
ester Morton, of Petersburg. C. A.
Seeds has a crew of sixteen men cut-
ting mine props on Short mountain,
and W. A. Neals is manufacturing
staves in an operation on Tussey
mountain. Both of these operations
are on State land, and are a part of
the Department of Forestry’s plan to
cut out blighted chestnut timber as
quickly as possible.

1842, hence was close to seventy-nine
years old. Like most men of that ear-
ly day his manual education was re-
ceived in the woods with the result
that he became a skilled worker in
every phase of a lumberman’s life,
from computing the value of timber
on the ground to marketing the finish-
ed product from the mill. He came to
the States along about the year 1862
and located at Philipsburg, just at the
time when lumbering was the big in-
terest there. Naturally he took o
hand at it and for a number of years
was among the big operators in that
section. When the big forests were
finally denuded he gave his attention
to smaller operations which he carried
on a number of years. Finally he left
Philipsburg and went to California
but was not satisfied with opportuni-
ties as he found them in that State
and returning he settled on a farm at
Julian and in addition to looking after
the farm work he also did lumbering
and mill work on the side.
His wife, who before her marriage
was Miss Jennie McCord, dying last
week, his only survivors are one son,
0. H. Nason, and two step-children,
Anna M. and John C. Andrews, both
of Julian. Funeral services were held
at his late home at one o’clock on Sun-
day afternoon by Rev. H. H. McElroy,
of Huntingdon, after which his re-
mains were laid to rest in the Fair-
view cemetery at Julian.

lower than last year due to the fact Ann Elmira Humes to John Thom-
that so many associations were oper-
ated for the first time in 1919 and the
percentage of poor cows was much
higher. Each year as the association
members benefit from the tests the
number of discards will decrease as
the number of good cows grows.
There were 24,215 cows tested in the !
associations in 1920, and those tested
by individuals brought the total up to
. 25,646. Slightly more than two per
cent. were discarded. The existence
of the cow-testing associations
working wonders. for the dairy indus-
try in Pennsylvania. The desire for
better ‘cows brought about though the
