When cultivating corn with a tractor, keep one eye on the corn row, one eye on the cultivator, one eye looking out for the stones, and one eye on the fence at the end of the field.

The farmer is the only man in our economy who buys everything at retail, sells everything at wholesale, and pays the freight both ways.
