Always cultivate with your eyes turned towards the nearest market. This ought to be the first rule for a farmer, for, without conveniences to sell your products at fair prices, and to get your manures easily and cheap, farming will not pay well, if it pays at all.

" Rise early in the morning," and have your eye on everything. A good start is worth many an hour of labor through the day.

Be your own overseer and foreman. Ton are no longer an independent man as soon as there is some indispensable individual upon your farm. . . Be ready to part with the best, and to take his place. That will do away with exactions and impertinence.

Be kind, just, and fair, in dealing with your hands; but . . " keep up your hedges." In other words, don't let others interfere with your authority.

Let order be "the farm's first law." Disorder and neglect are very expensive.

Have your cattle gently treated; you will save many a valuable animal, and prevent many a sad accident.

Take care of all tools, and have the best ones; they are the cheapest after all.

Don't neglect good advice, but do not accept them readily from every one; and chiefly do not consult your helps; you are sure to spoil them. Keep up your authority, anyhow.

Keep a ledger of expenses and profits, and again, "Rise early in the morning".
