ior them to decide on a policy and set i ie down to that as a permanent thing, frequently a dairyman will make a start by purchasing a Holstein Fries ian sire, and about the time he gets some half blood calves, a brilliant idea strikes him, and he thinks he will show the dairy world something about producing dairy cattle that will give n large flow of milk and also test high in butter fat, and he purchases a Jer sey sire. After another two or three years, beef brings a good price, and iie decides he will try a little beef blood, so that he can get more for his old, worn out cows. The result is, his herd, after all these years of breeding, is no better, if indeed as good as when ho started. Tumors on Pigs Castrated. Bunches form on the cords of pigs after castration as a result of infection from dirty instruments or hands, etc., during the operation; or from leaving ihe cord too long, thus increasing the liability of its becoming infected. These tumors continue to grow, and in the wo...

10 A FARMERS' TEST HELD AT MARYSVILLE, WASH., March 22nd, 1905, at the instance of local farmers. Four machines were invited to par ticipate, on 10 days' notice. One make, just put on the market here this season, avoided the issue by not showing up, al though promising to, right up to the last. Milk was 8 hours old—re-heated to a temperature of 90°. The results were as follows : Time Rev. Fat in Machine Lbs. milk Separating Crank Cream Skim Milk 450 lb. Tubular 96 131/, 50 53% .018 450 lb. Other make 96 14^ 55 29% .018 350 lb. Other make 64 103/2 70 22% .02 THE TUBULAR WON OUT in capacity, being 7 1-3% greater in capacity than the other 450-lb. make. Heavy cream and clean skimming were specially desired. THE TUBULAR WON OUT in this also, turning out a 53% cream with a loss in the skim milk of only .018. Surely a remarkable performance! Less power and revolutions were also needed to operate the Tubular. The testing was carefully done by a creamery man who was, by the way, also agent ...

THE RANCH . VOL. XXII. NO. 9, HOW BLANCHARD RAISES PROFITABLE POULTRY TH E poultry business is one that could and should be more extensively followed by many of our Western Washington farm ers who have any where from ten to a hundred and sixty acres of land. Eggs and poultry always command good prices on the Sound markets and the supply is so far below the demand that dealers have to make ex tensive shipments of both from the Eastern states. Storage eggs are not in favor with our people in the towns, but when consumers are unable to get Washington ranch eggs they have to banish from their minds the thought that the eggs they get may be two or three years old —and eat them. It is a fact that the poultry business is growing at a good pace on the coast, but it evidently is not keeping pace with the growth of population, judg ing from the supplies that come to the market. New comers from the east are going into the industry in good numbers, for it does not take much money to get a start...

2 The flinidoka Project in Idaho. The secretary of the interior has set aside, provisionally, $2,600,000 for the construction by the engineers of the reclamation service of the Minidoka project in Idaho. This project provides for the recla mation of about 130,000 acres of pub lic land on both sides of Snake river in southern Idaho. Water will be tak en from the river about six miles be low Minidoka station, at a point where it has cut through the lava ridge, which is an extension of the great lava fields that approach the river from the north between American Falls and Minidoka. The most important feature of con struction in connection with the Mini doka project is the dam on Snake river. The conditions here are very favorable for such a work. The top of thai ava ridge is about 47 feet above the river at low water, the formation of the lava ridge is about 47 feet above Incubator House on Blanchard's Chicken Ranch. the river from this point to American Falls flows in a narrow canyon ...

4 HORTICULTURE F. WALDEN There is a man in Michigan who has been accustomed to put up a lot Of pie apples in one gallon cans. Last fall he found he could not contract these canned apples for what it cost to put them up—there would be a loss of 10 to 15 cents on every can. What did he do? What would you do under such circumstances? Well, most people would not put up any. Here is just where this man showed his business foresight. He put up more of this kind of fruit than he ever did before. His reasoning about the mat ter was in this wise: 'The low price realized for canned apples will dis courage many from putting up this kind of fruit and there will be a scarcity." He was right, for it is now claimed that canned apples were never so scarce nor so high. There is a valuable lesson in what this Michi gan man did. When prices are low on any kind of commodity, many peo ple will quit its production or fail to properly care for what they have. The result is the price is almost sure to go u...

trc os when we are doing our annual pruning. Remember that it is sun shine that is the chief factor in color ing fruit. Potash in the soil will help a!, i the presence of water in sufficient quantity is an important factor, but the water does not do the coloring at all but renders the plant food available and that properly put into the circula tion of the sap does the work. * * * If this thinning was not done at the time of pruning, which in the main should be done while the trees are dormant, then there may be some thinning out in the summer time. By going through with the pruners we can greatly help this congestion of the foliage and let in the sunlight. It is claimed that by spraying with Bor deaux mixture apples will color better. From actual experience I believe there is something in this. There is no question but trees sprayed with this mixture will have a very healthy fol iage. The leaves perform an import ant part in turning the crude sap into available nutriment for the tre...

« THE DAIRY For a National Dairy Show. The international stock show at Chi cago has become a permanent feature of the live stock interests of the coun try. The idea has become such a suc cess that those who are interested in dairying have started a discussion as to the advisability of holding a nation al dairy exhibition in connection, in cluding both the cows and their pro ducts. There can hardly be any doubt of the success of such an exhibition, if its management is placed in the right hands and the necessary funds se cured. But what will the National Creamery Buttermakers' Association have to say? Those who want to at tend the annual conventions of the buttermakers' association would prob ably prefer to have the animals brought there for exhibition, if they are to be exhibited at all, instead of sending them to Chicago; and every feature suggested for a national dairy exhibition in connection with the in ternational stock show could be car ried out in connection with the exhibi t...

\ H. Stewart, of the Philadelphia Board of Health, thinks that milk toalers would not be warranted in raising their prices in consequence of i ibstituting the new bottle for the old. •lowever, one important effect which he anticipates from the innovation is that the operation of bottling will be ransferred from the headquarters of fie city dealer to the dairy farm. Heretofore the danger of breaking during shipments has been a formid able obstacle to such a change, which is extremely desirable from sanitary i ansiderations, and possibly that ob ;'acle may now be removed. The operation of washing returned milk bottles is today conducted with \arious degrees of thoroughness. In 1) stances, no doubt, it is well done. Nevertheless, many shocking stories, hich probably have a good founda i;on, are told about the carelessness of lazy drivers of city milk wagons. It 11 said that they often refill dirty bot ties without cleaning them at all. Even when the bottles are brought badk to the milk...

8 the milk which they put out. The proper way would be to attach some such a penalty for each pint of milk that is sold below standard, and let any test that is made from their gen eral supply of milk answer as being an average test of their entire out put. This would amount, to a whole saler, to more than his milk business would stand and thus cause him to quit his rascality or go out of busi ness. An Auburn subscriber asks for some kind of spray for keeping flies from cattle, and where it might be ob tained. There are several prepara tions for the purpose.

something different and helpful, I am, with best wishes to The Ranch, MRS. C. L. B. Third Prize. Dear Sisters of the Household: When The Ranch comes I always read our department first and enjoy hear ing from you all. I want to tell you one way to make our work easier. I put a box, just the right size, on a chair and then sit down to prepare fruit, vegetables and many other lit tle things. One can sit and iron and it is surprising, when one once gets in the habit of it, how many things can be accomplished while one is "thus resting," and how much easier it makes th\3 work. I know many think it is lazy to sit down to peel potatoes, but I don't, do you? Well, I believe you are all yawning, sb good-bye, Your country sister, ALVINA RUTLEDGE. It has been quite a surprise to find so many responses to The Ranch prize offer. I did not know so many women would believe it worth while to try, as one is so apt to think: "Oh, well! There will be so many others trying for it, I guess it's no use f...

Mr. Anderson's address is 1902 North For tieth street, Fremont, and he invites all who wish to place poultry on exhi bition at Portland to confer with him by letter. The time is none too long to get ready for the big show next fall, as there will have to be much preparatory work with the flocks dur ing the summer season.

COMMISSION ROW TALK While the fruit market this year will be strong and fairly high prices will prevail throughout the season, yet it is the opinion of the commission men on Commission Row in Seattle that the opening of the season on the dif ferent kinds of fruit will vary in a number of features from the preceding years, inasmuch as the high prices that have been paid heretofore will not be in evidence. For a number of years past big prices have been re ceived on Western avenue for fancy fruits and vegetables, especially dur ing the early part of the season when they first appeared on the market. The commission men asked big prices for the produce and received them be cause the people looked upon what they were buying as sort of luxuries and were willing to pay for them ac cordingly. For instance, when can taloupes first arrived they used to sell readily for $5 and $6 a box. This year it is not likely that the people will touch them at that price, or if they do the purchase will be...

12 THE FIELD Conditions for Alfalfa Growing. The western half of the United States in the true home of alfalfa and its cultivation is constantly increasing in acreage. It is one cf the best drought resisting plants and for this reason has become very popular in those arid regions where the other grasses do not make a good growth. Although a well-set alfalfa field will withstand considerable drought, yet the growing of alfalfa is limited by insufficient rainfall unless water can be supplied by irrigation. In general, alfalfa requires about 20 inches an nual rainfall, but in some sections of the north n. less amount is sometimes sufficient. Much of the success of the plant depends upon the distribution of the rainfall, the water-holding capacity of the soil, the depth to permanent moisture, the presence of seepage water from neighboring slopes, and other local or climatic conditions which affect the evaporation or avail able water supply through the growing seasoa, so that the necessa...

That is, our American express companies will take an eleven pound package that comes to them by mail from England and carry it across the continent for much less than they will carry it for an Ameri can from New York to San Francisco. This owing to the fact that the British postoffice department has made an ar rangement with these American ex press companies to carry eleven-pound packages of merchandise to any point in the United States for much less than they will carry it if it does not come to them in the British mail.

14 LIVE STOCK More Farm Beef. It sometimes happens that keeping up with the times means going back to old times. It appears that we have an instance of this in the cattle busi ness. Once upon a time there were no cattle ranches; beef was all made on the eastern farms. Then the prairie of a sudden opened its great vistas; these were natural pastures. What better could be done than to turn them over to cattle until such a time as an increasing population should de mand that the grass be turned under with the plow? The plow has gone forward, forward! the steers retreat ing before. The herds are driven into the country of drouth and scanty grass; but even here the ploy, though checked, does not stop. Irrigation moistens its furrow. What of the steer? There is not any longer room for all the market neds on the western pastures. For tunately, the continual high price of beef is finding a solution for the diffi culty. The westerners have already begun to find it profitable to go to the exp...

THE RANCH . VOL. XXII- NO. 10. State College of Washington Editor The Ranch: At your request I send a few words relative to the short tiling and simplifying of the college name from "The Agricultural College, Experiment Station and School of Science of the State of Washington" to "The State College of Washington." The first thing to say is that it still is and will continue to be the agricul tural college, the scientific school and the experiment station of the state, and that the great function of the college relative to agriculture will con tinue to grow in power and usefulness. An earnest of this is the fact that at the April meeting of the board just past, an important enlargement of the agricultural function of the, college took place by the addition of two men —a cerealist and an instructor in animal husbandry—and I freely predict that the next ten years will see a develop ment of the distinctly agricultural work of the college beyond the most sanguine hope of the most sanguin...

To show what rapid development and progress we are making in this vicinity in the production of wheat, we give a few figures. In 1903 there was marketed at this point 93,000 bushels of grain and the year just past we have marketed 380,000 bushels or about that, and have several thousands yet to come in after seeding is all done. The prospect is very flattering now and we predict that more than (500,000 bushels will find the cars at this place next fall. For the business man who is looking for a location to embark in business we certainly have a splendid place in which to locate. In a very short time we will need a mill to help to dispose of our surplus. At present we have one general store and we need another badly. The coun try demands it. Any one desiring any further information will be answered by writing to the postmaster at Cun ningham. Mr. Walden High...
