The Farmer and His Bank Account
'PllE farmer more so than any other business man re-
quires the services of a bank if he manages his farm
in a systematic way. While he has no need for a set of books
in which to keep a record of every transaction made yet
during the course of a year he must pay out large sums of
money for various purposes and a record for future refer-
ence is highly important. Merchants may fail to give a re-
ceipt for cash a neighbor may not recall the payment of
money owed but the farmer who pays his obligations by
check.has written evidence of such payments which any
court may recognize. In the same way he has a record of
moneys received by the deposit pntries on his bank book.
