* This investment gives assurance of big profits a ml entails no risk. With the investment of a few hundred dollars you get a splendid income for life by purchasing treasury stock in the CROWN POINT MINING COMPANY while it can be bought at 40c per share. This company's remarkable copper property has been estimated by dis interested mining experts to be worth Fifty Million Dollars, and all mining men of vast experience admit they never before have seen a copper property its equal. Capitalization only 1,000,000 shares. This company also owns the famous Molybdnite Mine —conceded by all users of Molybdnite to be the purest ore of the kind obtainable, and nowhere else in the world has it been mined in such large quantities. Both mines situated in Chelan county, Washington. Why, then, does this company sell stock, and so cheap? A small block will be sold to keep the development work going until the railroad now being built is finished, when we shall ship our ore and pay regular dividends....

4 Number Tons of Alfalfa to the Acre. Sometime since in conversation with O. A. Fechter of North Yakima, whose judgment as to land and property val ues in the valley we regard very high ly, expressed himself as having some doubts that the Sunnyside country was producing the large yields of al lalla that was claimed for it. He said that his own experience and observa tion in handling allalia lands in the valley would lead him to believe that this class of lands about Suunyside were not producing the crops that were claimed lor tnem. In the past lew days I had an inter view with Mr. Arthur Stewart, who is visiting his brother-in-law, J. R. Whit ney, of this place, and who is now in vestigating the claims of this country lor lands as an investment of capital, and he expresses himself the same as Mr. *echter. We have always contended that seven tons of hay per acre was a very conservative estimate for the average yield of alfalfa at this place. Fearing that the gentlemen named above mig...

AT THE COUNTY FAIR. Abbott B. Appleton went to the fair (Sing hey! for the wind among his whiskers). Saw curious "dewin's" while he was down there 'Mongst the gamblers, the sports and the frlskers. He carried his bills in a wallet laid flat— An old-fashioned calf-skin as black as your hat; He was feeling so well he was easy to touch — Then he hadn't so much; no, there wasn't as much. He noticed a crowd around a pleas ant-faced man Whose business seemed based on a curious plan; He asked for a quarter from each in the crowd, Put the coin in his hat and he forth with allowed That simply to advertise he would re store His quarter to each, adding three quarters more.

6 FROM PROF. SPILLMAN. Washington, D. C, Aug. 19, 1902. Editor The Ranch: —The depart ment of agriculture wishes to get in communication with farmers who have grown pencillaria, or pearl mil let, during this season or previous sea sons. We should like particularly to know the amount of seed used per acre, where the seed was obtained and at what price, and whether or not a good stand was secured. We should also like to have the opinion of your readers as to the value of this crop as a fodder crop, and how best to util ize it. In return for information which any of your readers may fur nish us, we shall be glad to recipro cate by sending them publications of the Office of the Argostologist. W. J.

8 CLEARING LAND. Stump-pulling machinery. — There are many different kinds of stump-pull ing machinery upon the market. The promoters of these various grubbing devices claim great credit for their respective machines, but catalogue claims should be accepted with great caution. In the neighborhood of the writer, and doubtless in many other neigh borhoods, can be found such machin ery in idleness because it was tested and found wanting. The difficulty with most stump-pulling machines is that if they are strong enough for the work desired of them they are too ex pensive, cumbersome, and unwieldy. When these machines are once pro perly adjusted, their work, providing nothing breaks, will be satisfactory. But the labor of moving and the care of adjusting, together with the liabili ty to breakage, more than outweigh the virtues of any stump-pulling ma chine known to the writer. Moreover, usually, when the timber is large enough and thick enough to suggest recourse to machinery for clearin...

to keep the tree upright. The trees thus treated will, for the most part, succumb to the winds and storms, pulling up the stumps with them as they fall. The next process will be to tackle the young saplings, as previously des cribed, by means of a chain and team, pulling them out of the ground, stumps and all. Attention is called to the fact that where the stump has to be removed by pulling, whether in the way just described or by the stump puller, it is important to select for the purpose a day succeeding a wet spell or a thaw, when the earth is soft and wet for a considerable depth below the surface, a condition which will greatly facilitate the op eration of stump pulling. As the work progresses it may be necessary from time to time to again resort to firing, burning worthless timber and litter, the timber designed for lumber or fuel having been previously removed and piled for future use. At this time we have our lot pretty well cleared of standing timber, save such as has been ...

IO the profitable cultivation of new land. The problem is when and how to clear it. When once the clearing has been completely accomplished the yield from such lands will be more satis factory than the harvest from old fields. In fact, in many instances it would be wise and economical for the farmer to plant his old worn and washed fields to forest and clear oth er land for cultivation. GREAT CREAMERY FAILURE. The Elgin Creamery Company has been placed in the hands of a receiver. ] The liabilities are $415,000, of which j $155,000 is owed farmers for milk. The assets greatly exceed the liabilities, but consist of property that cannot readily be turned into money. The failure was brought about by a lack of working capital. Although the com pany was called the Elgin Creamery Company, few of the creameries it controlled were in Illinois. Of the 133 creameries, 12 were in Illinois, 36 m lowa, and 85 in Wisconsin. The pa trons of the creameries in Illinois numbered about 1000, in lowa 3,...

AN OLD FARMER'S ADVICE. By Henry Mark. Having been a farmer from boyhood I think I have learned some of the needs of the great army of young farmers who have just started or are getting ready to enter that field of la bor; and I hope there may be some thing in what I may say that will en courage and help come one of these In his struggles in the battle of life. I do not write for those who have been long in the business, because those that have been successful don't need any advice and those that have not perhaps, won't take it. But some youny men do succeed in farming, and there are good reasons why they suc ceed, and the reasons are not hard to find. A young man's character is pret ty well fixed when he is twenty-five yers old. If he is honest, industri ous, temperate, moral, saving, trusty, has a good wife and good health, and behind these what farmers need most —push and perseverance—he is al most certain to succeed. I know men tnat began working on the farm by the month at low ...

12 THE BREAK IN CATTLE PRICES. Chicago Live Stock World We have had a long period of high prices for beef cattle. Top notchers began breaking records parly this year, and 1902 has sent statisticians away back to war times for records of high prices for prime beeves, and the classes of cattle that most of us get our beef from have ruled above nor mal prices for the primest steers. These prices have been unnatural and were a result of unusual conditions. The production of cattle has not. kept pace with the increase of population in this country in the last few years and, at the begining of the drouth last year, there was not a normal supply of cattle In the feed lots, on the farms and ranches of this country. With the eomirg on of that drouth cattle owrers and feeders in the greatest producing states of the union. Illirois. lowa, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska, became panic-stricken, rushed their stock of young and unfinished cattle to market and the begining of the year found the avai...

confined in stalls with a chain tie fastened to an iron rod on side of mangers. They were turned in the yard to water at nine o'clock in the morning and remained in yard until noon, except in very stormy weather. Water was supplied in a trough in the yard. Preliminary to feeding test, steers ran in small field and were fed on corn fodder from th^ shook. They were put in stalls a few weeks before the feeding began, to accustom them to their quarters and to being handled. It is surprising how soon wild steers will learn to keep quiet, and go into their places in the stalls, when han dled quietly and persistently. As stated in other experiments with range steers, there is no difficulty in stall feeding such cattle, on account of their never having been handled. It requires a little tact and much pa tience; but these qualities must be prominent in any successful feeder of live stock. The following conclusions are drawn: 1. On the whole the feeding was profitable in all the steers showin...

14 Secretary of War Root was on his way to Southampton recently, when a termer edged Into the seat and began telling the cabinet member how to run the government. When the citizen's supply of criti cisms began to run low, Mr. Root asked: "What is you occupation?" "Poultry farmer," was the reply. "Do you know how many eggs each of your hens lays?" "Why. no." confessed the man. "Well, the man who looks after my chickens knows how much each ben does. If he didn't I'd discharge him for not knowing his business. If a hen doesn't produce fifteen eggs a month it's a loss to keep it. Now. my friend, doesn't It strike you that after you have learned your own business so well that I can't give you points on it, then would it be proper time for you to come and teach me how the government ought to be run?" —New York Times. The losses of young chicks occur during the summer from so many causes as to sometimes cause astonish ment. They seem to disappear with out enemies. The fact is that doss, ha...

4 PERRY POLSON. By the Editor. "The road to success? Why—" and Hetty Green, richest woman financier in America, stopped to peer through her glasses at the questioner. "Why, the road to success is so plain that most people look clear over it. They never see it." 1 was reminded of this bit of philos ophy when the photograph that is re produced on our first page was placed on my desk the other day. It's a first rate picture, isn't it? The subject 1 have known, say, fifteen years, so I feel competent to make a few re marks about him. • * * Perry Poison—a farmer's son, reared with the environments of rug ged frontier life, with no other edu cation than that of the cardinal virtue of industry instilled by the unremit ting toil of the farm, his career, as I look at it today, shows one of the most striking successes of the busi ness men of Seattle and the state. There is nothing scintillating at any point in it—just a prosaic record of the daily performance of that task set before him to th...
