The man that succeeds in making farming profitable must have adaptability to use what he has to the best advantage. Should I say. because on my farm Ihere is not all the improved machinery for growing.wheat, that I will give up trying to raise wheat, it cannot be none at a profit; or be cause I have no potato planier, dig? ger, and other appliances of the most approved and expensive kind, that I will not raise a potato be? cause it cannot be done without these at a profit? Jlow many of our successful far mem had improv machinery to start, with? It is not so much the machine as thw man who uses them, that makes them pay.
