Hons. I have the honor to have a copy of his report. It is not yet in print, Ijut I&m assured by President Bryan, o f our state agricultural college, that it will be brought out as a bulletin. It is a regular thesaurus of informa tion on the codling moth and is based not on conjecture but on actual ob servation in the orchards. Touching the time when and the place where the codling moth lays its eggs the fol lowing is taken from this valuable re port: "The first egg was found on jfay 18, or about a week after the blos soms had fallen from the apple trees. It was laid by one of the females that emerged May 12. No other eggs could be found till May 25; but from then on until June 25 they were plentiful. The first egg found, that laid May 18, did not hatch till May 30. Of 16 eggs laid on May 25, three hatched June 2nd. four June 3rd, and nine June 4th. Thus one egg required 12 days to hutch, nine required 10 days, four, 9 days, and three required 8 days, the average time of incubat...

H greater than in the ordinary process of butter making. Consequently we will have a butter, which, while it contains the usual amount of fat, but no more, contains also a large quantity of broken-down casein, and an excessive amount of water, be sides the residum of the alum, salt peter, and other substances that may have been used in the process." With all this data before him it will be a surprise if the farmer in sists on being "milked" by such men as are peddling Estep's so-called im proved butter and cheese mailer. Men of the stripe of the inventor of this process will lay awake nights con juring up methods for swindling the unsophisticated, and as one class of farmers are extremely gullible there is a prolific field for operation among them—and Estep knew this. The ex pose of the fraud by the newspapers may put an end to his operations in one section, but he, or some one else, is almost sure to bob up in another section with the same thing or a vari ation of it, and this publ...

Attention is called to the new class of advertising now naming in The Ranch for poultrymen, under the head ing of Breeders' Cards. This is in fact the same kind as that run in our popular Special Want column, which is proving so profitable to those who use it. In the Breeders' Card column we will insert only poultry advertis ing and the charge will be two cents per word each insertion, unless a long time contract is made, when lower rates proportionately may be secured. This column has been started to af ford a cheap means of publicity to the numerous poultry raisers who have a few birds or a few settings of eggs to dispose of, and who do not feel that they want to use more than three or four lines of space. There are scores of such...

A Quart Baby. Now and again there is an item in the newspapers concerning the birth of a runy baby so small that a quart cup holds it comfortably.

14 LIVE STOCK How to Build a Silo. tH. ii. Blanohard.) John Reese. Startup, Wash., writes as follows: "Some time ago you kindly promised to give me advice on silo building, so here we are! My plan is as follows: Adout 4 or 5 feet in ground, to be buili of concrete, the upper framework L'xls, 11 inch center, 22 to 24 feet high, 12 feet, in diameter, round. Do you think that inch fir could be nailed in this circle with out breaking? How would hemlock do lor this purpose? Would it per haps rot sooner? 1 thought of put ting on two thicknesses of this % Inch, then lath and plaster with ce ment, same as you did yours. As to outside, I can buy cedar siding at $3 per 1000 ft. (culls). If I put them on in the regular way, same as on a building, would that answer the pur pose of hoops like those you put on yours? The silo is to be inside of a barn. Do you think we can raise good corn here for silage, and if so, what corn is best to use?" This plan for a silo will do, I think, very well, and b...

THE RANCH . VOL. XXII. NO. 6. SHALL BREED PURE BRED LIVESTOCKS The cause of pure bred live stock owes much to its enthusiasts and dreamers. There is an indefinable something about the business which makes for idealism and inspires en thusiasm. In fact, the idealist and en thusiast are naturally one and the same person. It is not difficult to THE IMMENSE PLANT OF THE PORTLAND COKDAGE COMPANY, AT INTERBAY, SEATTLE, COVERING 100,000 SQUARE FEET, WITH A ROPE WALK 1,600 FEET LONG AND 40 FEET WIDE.

2 doubt by the dream of possible glit tering profits. There is in pure stock breeding an element of chance, which at times possesses all the fascination of the lottery wheel or gaming tables. The fabulous price for famous animals in the sale ring, the excitement and craze which dominates breeders and novices as well, the rise and the fall of the range of prices—all of these in dications are almost identical with the feverish movements of the finan cial world. It is not surprising that here and there will be found a man of wealth who believes that his finan cial genius is such that he can juggle with stock, not that Kind represented by engraved bond paper, but real flesh and blood, and make the venture pay him well. The majority of such specu lators, however, never realize their expectations and the cause of live stock history is flagged by ruin and disasters which mark the failure of such well meant efforts. I believe that the majority of the rich men who have gone into the breeding...

4 HORTICULTURE F. WALDEN Well, I have seen, handled and tasted the Spencer seedless apple. J. F. Littooy, county fruit inspector of Snohomish county, called on me with four of the apples, and we cut and partly devoured two of them. These apples are small, rather hard, nearly red in color and are rather pretty in appearance. We sampled the apples March 9. They had been kept in cold storage and the tissues were somewhat broken down. The flavor was fairly good. I should judge the apple would be quite hard at any time during the winter. Unless by cul ture and thinning the apples could be increased in size, very few. if any, would pack fours. It would be main ly a five-tier apple. It is indeed seed less, although we found one imperfect seed in one of the apples. It is not strictly coreless. The meat of the apple grows well into the center but a thin, hard substance, such as surrounds the seeds in common ap ples extends out in star shape some thing less than a half inch from the center.

6 THE DAIRY Changing or Doctoring Tests. Have you ever known of instances where the creamery "cut the test or doctored it?" If you have will you write up the case for The Ranch, leav ing out mention of names, if you pre fer? This is an important subject and some light thrown upon it as it affects the creamery business in the North west will be much appreciated by our thousands of readers. That the prac tice of cutting or doctoring the test is in vogue in some of our creameries, there can be no doubt, and the sooner such dishonesty is found out the bet ter it will be for the patrons, who are swindled out of their money so long as the practice continues. Two in stances will be mentioned here, for both of which we are indebted to the New York Produce Review. A Col orado reader writes as follows, in re ply to the question as to what a but termaker should do when the manager tells him to cut the test or doctor it: "I have had one experience on the subject in the last ten years which I wi...

a () 'stein blood, other conditions being favorable. Were we to go into the great dairy ing sections of Switzerland today we would find a breed of cattle there whose milk is made up into the fa „„, us "Swiss cheese." Their milk is „., Jcularly adapted to the produc tion of the peculiar flavor which char acterizes the imported product and causes it to bring double the price of o ur American-made Swiss cheese. The breed is nowkn as the Brown Swiss, an ri while in reality they are a dual purpose breed, their peculiarly fla vored milk has made them valuable in the production of cheese. The strictly dairy cow, of whatever hived she may be, is a highly artifi cial product, and since she has been bred with some distinct purpose in view we have reason to expect a great deal of her, not only in quality but also in uniformity. The dairyman with his herd of na tive or scrub cattle may be able to secure fairly good results, but should he desire to increase his herd with such stock he can do so ...
