A Friend of Good Roads A Horticultural Course No question is of such vital impor tance to the prosperity of the Pacific Northwest as that of good roads, both from a social and financial standpoint. From a social standpoint it allows the neighbor! in the various communities to visit back and forth in comfort during the winter months, and also gives them a prompt delivery of mail by the rural carriers. From a financial standpoint there is no investment that will return as big profit to the people in general as that of good roads. It allows the farmer to haul his products to market with comfort during the winter months at an expense of over 200 per cent less than it costs him to haul products to market over the present county roads. It increases the valuation of prop erty and encourages the many emi granta from the east and...

2 Sheep Raising a Profitable Industry. There is probably no branch of farming which is more likely to give profitable results to the owner than sheep husbandry, if conducted along rational lines. To buy a flock of sheep and turn them out to graze on wild lands and pay no attention to their breeding and general management will likely be an unprofitable venture, for dogs and other predaceous ani mals are likely to decimate the flock before the season is over. As a mat ter of fact, the management of sheep on this basis is clearly irrational and cannot be expected to yield a profit. It is also necessary in engaging in the sheep business to see that the foundation stocks are all right. One proposing to follow sheep farming on a commercial basis coul'i not do better than to buy the hardy mountain ewes, which are capa ble of rustling for themselves. These mountain ewes make excellent moth ers and are, as a rule, good milkers and productive if well fed and nour ished. They can be bought at ...

4 HORTICULTURE F. WALDEN The question is often asked if the apple business will not be overdone. That is a hard question to answer. Some lines of fruit growing have been overdone. This is notably true of the prune business on the Pacific Coast. The same is true of the raisin busi ness in California. Some men are claiming that the orange business, both in California and Florida, is over done. Others contradict this and claim that the business would still be profit able if the railroads would deal fairly with the people. One thing we do know, and that is, that the orange business has increased enormously in California, and if It continues the business must be overdone sooner or later. A writer in the Pacific Fruit World recently made the statement that in 1884 the navel orange ship ments to the eastern markets amount ed to about 225,000 boxes, but in 1904, just twenty years after, it had reach ed the enormous business of 10,000,000 boxes. Such an expansion, if kept up. must in time sw...

6 THE DAIRY It's a Fake Editor The Ranch: Numerous let ters have been sent to me by dairymen asking if they could use "Estep's Im proved Butter and Cheese Maker." This preparation is composed of pep sin, sugar of milk, saltpeter and alum. I took up this matter with the De partment of Agriculture and received a letter from Major Alvord, chief of the Dairy Division, in which he con demned the use of "Estep's Improved Butter and Cheese Maker," claiming that it was a violation of an "Act of Congress" approved May 9, 1902, and known as the "Oleomargarine law," which assigned to the Secretary of the Treasury and the Secretary of Agri culture various duties concerning thos those classes or kinds of butter de fined in the law as adulterated butter and process or renovated butter. But ter manufactured by the use of "Es tep's Improved Butter and Cheese Maker" would in fact constitute adul terated butter for two reasons. First, the law provides that as chemicals are used the butter manufacture...

8 HOUSEHOLD Comfortable Outfit for Housework. The woman who does her own work and has'nl a moment to herself for rest, recreation or improvement from Monday morning till Sunday night— and looks as worried and careworn as the queen of spades—is wearing her life away through not doing her work by a proper system. If you hap pen to be one of them, I want you to lind some quiet place where you and 1 can talk things over. Now, first of all, what do you wear to work in? With my experience I never could work "dressed up"—and I never work well if I have on an old wrapper with my hair all scraggly and my shoes half tied. I have tried both ways— and found that by starting right I really kept my mind in better condi tion to do what I have to do. So, when I made up my mind to do my work while we were paying for our farm, I decided to be dressed for it — and everything from that starting point seemed to go on smoother. Sum mer and winter I wore an unlined al paca skirt and petticoat, adding warm...

There are dozens of people in this state who would gladly go into the squab business if they believed they could make it a success but they hesi tate because they know nothing about birds. Since 1 began writing for The Ranch on the subject of "Squab Rais ing for Profit" 1 have had many letters from persona who have made a suc cess of chickens and who believe it would be well to work the two busi nesses together.

This is of the Onion family, being somewhat similar to a young onion, but the flavor is milder, and by a great many people is preferred to onion. Seed should be planted as early as danger of frost is over. The cultivation and soil should be tne same as for onions, but leek should have a little more room to develop fully. Lettuce.

14 LIVE STOCK Close Margins in Cattle Feeding. Our old friend, E. C. Burnett, now director of the Nebraska experiment station, keeps a close eye on the pos sible profits in all the experiments he conducts. Particularly is he careful when it comes to putting solid grain into cattle to so combine it with other foods as to get the greatest possible gain in the least possible time. Re ferring to mistakes made along these lines and recent experiments bearing upon them. Professor Burnett says: "it is often said that profit in cattle feeding is a question of margins be i ween buying and se.lling price So largely is this true that other import ant factors are often lost sight of. The best of cattle and the best meth oda of feeling may not give a profit on a bad market; on the other band, inferior cattle and bad methods some times pay a profit when there is a strong upward trend of the market during the feeding period. "The I! year-old ox of bad quality needs a wide margin to pay a profit. H...

THE RANCH . VOL. XXII. NO. 5. jsr j& PRINCIPLES OF ARID FARMING j& j& TO FULLY appreciate the neces sity of plowing in arid farming it is important to know the rela tion of the plant to the soil and the method by which the plant obtains its moisture. While water is held in the soil in three different forms, viz: free, capillary and hygroscopic water, it is only the capillary water which is a direct source of supply for the plants. Capillary water is held as a distinct film around the soil grains. Fining and pulverizing the soil ren ders it possible for more capillary wa ter to be held. Plowing the land has a very appreciable influence on the amount of water that can be held by the soil, as has been shown by many different experiments. At the Utah experiment station at the time of seed ing grain last fall the foremen on the farms noticed the great amount of moisture present in the land plowed a year ago, but which land had not been cropped, as compared with ad jacent land...

4 HORTICULTURE F. WALDF.N S. Y. Bennett, of Puget, Wash., un der date of Feb. 17, writes as follows: "I am a new and interested reader of your horticultural department of The Ranch and I would like to ask you if you know where I could buy scions of the Jonathan and the Arkansas Black? Also if you know of some good book on the subject of top work ing? I would like very much to get one." I do not know positively where Mr. Bennett can get the scions that he wants, except from myself. We don't care to engage in that line of business, but as a matter of accom modation we can furnish such cut tings at $1.00 per 10U, delivered to the express office. Each scion will make four or five grafts. So far as I know there is no book devoted exclusively to the subject of top working. There is a good article on top working in the Yearbook of the Department of Agriculture for 1902, beginning on page 245. It will pay any one who contemplates that kind of work to get hold of this article and read it. An...
