of the best agents for cleaning cows i hat have aborted. The following meth od has been employed: In cows that lave aborted the placenta should be removed immediately, or as soon as ■ossible. The entire vagina is irri- I ited with a hike-warm three per cent. Solution of permanganate of potash. ■ hen the solution of yeast is injected Into the vagina, which solution is pre pared as follows: The ordinary com pressed yeast is used. One cake is dis olved in a teacupful of water and ,-llowed to stand to ferment. To this termtnt is added from a pint to a pint and a half of water. This is injected into the vagina, and it has a tendency to stop the discharge from the vagina better than any chemical that has so far been used. It has also the great advantage that it does not produce any irritation which may occur by the irong use of carbolic acid and other disinfectants. It has also been used Aith very good success in cows affect ed with leucorrhoea. The method em ployed is to wash out the vag...

8 HOUSEHOLD MRS. 8. O. WEBSTER Sand communication* for this department to Mr«. S. O. Webater, 259 Colman Block, Seattle, or direct to The Ranch. All ques tions will be carefully anewered; contribu tions for publication are welcome. The Lewis and Clark Fair. Just now everybody is interested in the coming fair—and I took a glance at the buildings when I was in Port land last week—l thought I'd like to tell you what to look out for particu larly as I heard a lot that may be you will not see in the papers. One of the things I am looking for ward to seeing is the model farm an Oregon man is going uo exhibit. His name is Homer Davenport, a name famous throughout tue world as that of the greatest American cartoonist. He spent his boyhood at Silverton, Or., and worked with plow and hoe—just like any farmer's boy—but in between times he used to mane rough draw ings of birds and horses and what ever he took a fancy to, and his father thought he saw talent in the crude sketches and by and by s...

Guard Against the Cutworm There appears to be little likelihood of the cut worm making its appearance in great numbers this season, but it is the part of wisdom to be on one's -uard against it. A plague of cut worms, such as we hud In 1900, is not i pleasant thing to have with us at my time. The cut worms are the pro luct of the moth known as "Peridroma Saucia," and many have wrongly call ed them the variagated cut worm. When the caterpillars are first hatched they are minute, dark colored and hairy, and for about a week after wards they are commonly known as loopers or geometers, according to a bulletin issued by the department of agriculture of British Columbia. As they attain a larger size they are pto vided with six true legs and ten fleshy pro-legs, when they relinquish the habit of looping and assume the norm al cut worm habits. Cut worms are the caterpillars of dull-colored, active moths, belonging to the noctuidae or owlet moth class, of which there are upwards of 400 differ...

Blanehard at Hadlook, WMh.. or direct to The Ranch, Seattle. Squab Raising for Profit. By E. L. Reber. If you have not got down to cleaning out your loft don't delay it, for this is the season of the year when the lice are liable to get a start and once they do your old birds, as well as their squabs, will suffer. Lice, once they get a start in the loft, are a hard thing to get rid of. Don't think that by whitewashing you will keep them out of the loft. That is a great aid but the effects of whitewash soon wear away and the lice come back. The best thins to do is to go over the loft with some standard lice exterminator and if your birds show any signs of lice give them two or three good clean ings with Persian powder and scatter some of the powder on the birds in the nest and even sprinkle some on the eggs. If you do this occ...

Dairy New* and Notes. ■Vhile the great rush of spring work is on the farmer is npt to forget that ,1,, cow must be tended to at regular n o irs, rush or no rush. If you want to nave her give full returns for the t , I consumed be sure that she has pi per attention at all times. Vhe nicest way to handle the skim m iik calves is to fix up stanchions for th (im. They are then under absolute control. Each calf gets the feed the feeder thinks it ought to have, and they are fed with the greatest possi i)]r saving of time and patience. The western dairyman must come to the silo sooner or later. He can not afford to ignore the silo always if iie is expecting to make money out of the dairy business. The sooner he be ;ins to study it at short range the better off he will be. Perhaps you had better begin with the stave silo. It is the cheapest and the best to use in learning. Food, comfort and contentment, are the prime factors in successful dairy ing, and it is not too nuch to say that comfor...

12 COMMISSION ROW TALK The feature on the local commission market at the present time is the strawberries. These are coming in in good numbers from the surrounding country and so far the prices have been well maintained. At present the ber ries are coming from Lake Washing ton, Green Lake and Vashon Island, and are as line berries as are grown anywhere in the world. Vashon Island berries were unusually early this year, as early, in fact, as those from Hood River, and berries from the other sec tions appeared sooner than usual. This is a welcome sign for the commis sion men, for it means that the grow ers are learning the real secret of making money in the berry business —that of getting their fruit on the market while it is a novelty and while prices are good. In previous years the arrival of berries from the sur rounding country has been lagging and the bulk of them didn't arrive until berries from the outside had been on the market for some time and the pub lic had grown used to e...

THE FIELD Some Enemies of the Sugar Beet. The beet web-worm, the army-worm and tbe native cutworm, are enemies which have appeared from time to ime in our beet fields. They are all more or less subject to the attacks of ; urasites and it is perhaps this fact i iore than any other which saves the c )imtry from a scourge which would , ntirely wipe out the growing crops. ri hese larvae increase with startling i ipidity and since they live and thrive on a number of native weeds as well as on beet plants ... would be a great task to fight them if they appeared in great i, imbers every year. These three spe ciea of worms winter in the ground either as half-grown larvae or in the chrysalis state and early fall plow ing of the land intended for beets is the best preventive measure. The cutworm is the first to make its appearance in spring and to cause el image to the growing crop. j.ne eggs are laid in the fall and the larvae bur row in the ground, coming forth in the spring as soon as ther...

14 LIVE STOCK Frakes Buys More Fine Blood. Mr. P. A. Frakes, proprietor of the Lakeside Stock Farm at Scappoose, Ore., has been in Minnesota on a pur chasing tour and returned a fortnight ago with a carload of high class Hol steins, some of which will apear on the fall fair circuit of the northwest this year. Mr. Frakes secured nine of the highest class cattle that could be found, among which are the following: Sir Mechthilde Jewel 32732, first prize and junior champion at the Minnesota state fair, first prize yearling and reserve champion at the St. Louis ex position, and until sold to Mr. Frakes head of the first prize young herd in the country; Chloe Mechthilde 49535, fourth prize cow at the St. Louis ex position, dam of the first prize yearling bull and second prize two-year-old heifer; Virgo Beauty 4th's De Kol 65876, first prize yearling heifer at St. Louis exposition, also junior champion heifer and reserve grand champion of females.

It is not every owner of a stallion rhat knows just how many mares his ;,nimal may serve during the season, irom April 1 to July 1, and more of ten than not he will permit the stal iion to serve too many, thereby doing damage to hies own interests and to the interests of his patrons. To come down to the simple truth, the number of mares a horse may serve in a sea son depends on his age and on the way in which he is fed and handed. It is a common practice of compani...

THE RANCH . VOL. XXII. NO. 12. SEED SELECTION AND HANDLING REDUCED TO A SCIENCE THE selection and handling of all kinds of seeds and the especial development of a fine line oL! hardy northern grown varieties has been made a study by the Chas. H. Lilly Co., of Seattle, the big seed and farmers' supply house of the northwest, until at the present time they have reduced the business to what is approximately an exact science, with tire re sult that they are able to supply the farmers and ranch ers of the west coast with every variety of seed to which the fertile soil of the various districts will give growth, and are in especially good position to recom mend the varieties which experiment has proven are grown with the greatest success. This has not been brought about without hard work, considerable research and much experimentation. It has required constant effort on the part of those at the head of this seed business to bring about these results, for at the beginning there was little t...

S a shipment of 400,000 honey sections, each one of which holds a pound of honey. These will all be disposed of in a year, and this represents the pro duction of comb honey alone. A business of good pro portions, conducted in con nection with the seed business, is that of handl ing and mixing fertilizers. This firm handles every grade of fertilizer, a largo amount of which is con sumed in this territory—in fact, a market has been developed all over the. west coast, as well as in the Orient, Japan, espec ially, having proven a good market. The company im ports potash salts direct from Germany and nitrate of soda from South Ameri ca, and its own machin ery for mixing them to gether with slaughter house products. The usr of potash in the west is constantly on the increase, the Chas H. Lilly Co. sell ing 20 tons in 1903, 40 tonr. in 1904, 80 tons so far in 1905, and having orders boolted for 160 tons to be delivered in the fall for use in 1906.

4 HORTICULTURE r. WALDEN The Lewis and Clark fair is now in full blast and is enjoyed by thousands of visitors. There is much to be seen and it is an educator. It is not my purpose to write of the fair in a gen eral way. My department is devoted to horticulture and of that I shall write. No man can know all thing's, and it is far better to know some things well than to have a mere smat tering of a great many things. So I will remember the old adage: "Shoe maker, stick to your last". There are some good lessons to be learned in horticulture right here on the fair grounds. It is true that horticulture can be studied in the orchard and this I have been doing for years past. If I have any particular fitness for the work I am doing on The Ranch it is owing to the fact that I deal to a large extent with my own experience in running a commercial orchard. But there are some lessons I am learning here now that ought to be of practical value to the fruit grower. The display of fruit here is v...

ing apricots for evaporating purposes I have no experience. Apricot seeds grow very readily but most of the seedlings are worthless for market purposes. Friend Proctor will have to buy his trees of some reliable nur seryman or plant the seed and then bud the seedlings. Be careful with whom you deal in buying apricot trees. A man in our neighborhood bought 200 young apricot trees for Mooreparks and when they bore he had but four (rue to name. Planting the seeds and then budding the young seedlings in August is the surest and safest way to secure reliable trees. The following is Mr. Proctor's letter: Horticultural Editor The Ranch. I am not yet satisfied as to the prutit in rais ing the Spitzenberg. So far as possible I have acted on your advice in the horticultural department of The Ranch —to investigate locally—and have dis covered they are raised a few miles dis tant, but as yet 1 have had no opportu nity to personally interview the growers.

6 THE DAIRY Demand for Men Who Know. An item from Ames, lowa, where the lowa State College is located, and which has one of the best dairy schools in the United States, has the following to say about the demand for those who have acquired an expert knowl edge of the dairy business: Fred Rasmussen, a senior dairy student, has just been elected assist ant professor of dairying by the Pur due University of Indiana. Mr. E. S. Guthries, another senior, has been elected by the Columbus University of Ohio as assitant professor of dairy ing. Of the seven students who will graduate in June, and who have spe cialised in dairying, all have positions awaiting them at salaries ranging from $1,000 to $1,800 per year. The dairy department has been unable to supply the demand for competent men for the past two or three years. The call for scientifically trained men is constantly increasing, especi ally in dairy work. Many of the in quiries coming in are for competent men to take charge of sanitary ...

butter test," except where samples of the milk are tested for butter fat by a representative of the American Jersey Cattle Club, when it becomes a "con firmed butter test." In private butter tests conducted by employes or other deputies of the owner, the Club requires affidavit to the report, but where an owner per sonally tests his own cow this re quirement ia waived. Churn tests have done the Jersey breed a world of good, and that is one reason why the practice of making them is so persistently followed by Jersey breeders. Another reason is because there is no other way to make butter tests. The number of churn test reports is steadily growing, and the current year will no doubt make an unusually good showing in this res pect. We commend the system, but would welcome any improvement that can be made. In this direction, analy sis of the finished butter has been sug gested, and with this additional re quirement we believe the churn test would be wholly beyond criticism. A copy of th...

She spoke very good Eng lish and unlike most of her sisters from the land of the cherry blossom, looked as though the American dress she wore belonged to her. She spoke of the three most prominent character istics of the Japanese women. First, phe said, however, that all their early training was unnatural in that they were taught to repress as something to be ashamed of, any expression of anger, grief, pain or joy. To laugh beyond a smile is not considered well bred, and to show the tongue in laugh ing is a positive breach of good man ners. When a Japanese girl gets angry she says nothing, and if her feel ings are hurt and she wants to cry she goes t...

As has been stated before in these columns the time to begin preparing the poultry for exhibition at the state or county fairs is when they are hatched. From the very first day of their lives the chickens need the right kind of feed and attention if they are to develop into prize winners and money makers. If you have not al ready b'eon looking after the birds you expect to exhibit at the fairs do not lose another day but set about the work at once. Poor exhibits and much complaining are the inevitable result of improper attention in the poultry yards.
