than the engine that is poorly kept and badly managed. The comparison of these two machines will give us a hint why it is that very often the dairy bred cow does not do any better, if as well, as the socalled scrub or beef cow. Steam engines or beasts must be fed, cared for and operated, accord ing to the kind of service they are to render, if the greatest amount of work is to be accomplished. Butter-makers Going to Chicago. E. Sudendorf, secretary of the Na tional Creamery Buttermakers' Asso ciation, makes the announcement that the next buttermakers' convention is to be held at the Coliseum in Chicago in February of next year.

All ques tion* will be carefully answered; contribu tions for publication are welcome. Ingratitude. How often we hear people say: "1 did this for Soand-So, and I did that; I put myself out, and made sacrifices and what then? Well, she turned right around, did a favor for a perfect stranger, just when I needed her more than any one, and what's more, she even seemed to dislike me for the kindness I had shown her." Now, it's very far from my intention to sug gest not doing helpful things for other people, but be sure they are helpful, and after you have done them, let that be the end of it. If you really wanted to help the person you ex pected nothing for yourself out of it or you were really only doing some thing for yourself, with the hope of a reward in the shape of that person's good opinion or the expectation of a return later on. Well —...

Make your ariicles brief and write as often as you like. Conserving the Moisture. —In read ing (he last issue I see you give us farmers a chance to state our ex periences, and knQwing many in this part of the state are vitally interested in the conservation of moisture on their farms. I will state my experience. My plan of cultivation is as follows: Early in spring, as soon as seeding is done, I begin my preparation for sum mer fallowing. I first go over the ground with a right lap plow, with a with a light wooden harrow attached to it. This cuts all the ground and thoroughly stirs it to a depth of pos sibly three inches then I plow my ground with a right lop plow, with a leaf of the harrow attached to it. This plowing my land with the right lap one has a large farm and still there will be plenty of moisture in the ground, even if no r...

Wash., or direct to The Ranch. Seattle. Saving the Chicks. (By T. S. Rosenberg.) This is the important subject con nected with successful poultry raising, and whenever a method shall have been discovered by which the rearing of little chicks by artificial means can be successfully accomplished the problem of "successful poultry raising" will have been in a great meas u re solved. The best we <mn do under existing conditions is to be guided by our own experience and observations as supplemented by the experience and observation of others, being care ful to adopt only such suggestions to which can be made an application of common sense. Of course it is very necessary to begin right. In other words, see to it that the breeding stock is sound and healthy. Then select such eggs as will hatch strong, vigoro...

dor more satisfaction in the trade, and the purchaser more pleasure in the dish. "The Burch Brothers, of Seattle, one of the oldest and most responsible firms in the business in that city, have repeatedly declared to the writer of this editorial, that they would be will- Ing, glad, to pay a great deal more for consignments from this city and val ley than they now pay for the cold storage goods. J. Ralph Burch, the heaO of the firm, told me this week <hat he is disappointed in not rtceiv ,ng some shipments from this section. "And I feel, and The Republic, and the people of this valley should feel, that a mistake is being made in not devoting some attention to this pleas ant and profitable branch of farming." The Farmer's Poultry. Poultry on the farm never received so much attention as is now being given to it. Not very long ago those farmers who paid particular attention to poultry were looked upon as being "cranks" and wasting a lot of time on work that the women should be al low...

12 THE FIELD Something About Turkestan Alfalfa. Reference was made in our last is sue to the success had by L. E. Ensor in growing Turkestan alfalfa in the vicinty of Reardan. We are in receipt of a letter from a subscriber at Pes hastin, asking how many crops Tur kestan alfalfa will make in a season and whether it is better than the ordi nary alfalfa under the same condi will produce the same amount of feed as the ordinary alfalfa under the same nary alfalfa for horses. The alfalfa conditions, and of course without irri gation it would produce but one, or at most two crops in a season. Alfalfa does the best with irrigation, wanting a soil that will not retain water near the surface. As to the Turkestan alfalfa being better than the ordinary for horses, we cannot say that it is. The stalks are larger and more coarse. It will with stand drought better than the ordi nary alfalfa and is not easily affected by freezing. It also gives better re sults on sti-ong alkaline soils.

LIVE STOCK Lawful Barbed Wire Fence. A subscriber at Sultan, Wash, writes The Ranch as follows: "Will you please inform me what constitutes a lawful barbed wire fence? Would a fence with posts a rod apart and with two stays between posts and four wires be lawful? I have a neighbor who refuses to build his share of line fence. What can I do about it?" Those two questions are fully cov ered by laws of the state as follows: Lawful Barbed Wire Fence. —The posts must be set not more than 30 feet apart, the first wire must not be more than 22 Inches from the ground, the second wire 34 inches, and the third wire 48 inches: each and every one of the wires must be tightly stretched and securely fastened to said posts and four light poles or strips shall be fastened between each two posts to said wires vertically, leaving no greater space than about six feet between said posts and poles or strips, or the posts may be set not more than twelve feet apart and two barbed wires and one pole, rail ...

touch the neck with the right hand, and at the same time rise slightly in the saddle, urging on the horse gent ly. If he makes a mistake, and mixeg, pull him back to a walk at once, and repeat the maneuver. For the canter, slacken the reins, incline your body forward, rafse your right hand as if to salute, and cluck to the horse. When he starts, take sufficient hold of the arch his neck. Many highly trained horses will go into the canter at the mere indication of the body. For the rack, or single foot, tighten the reins and give the bit a number of almost imperceptible jerks, at the same time urge him on with voice or whip, as he requires. If you feel him falter, or as if he was going to change into another gait, slightly shake the bit, and urge him on. It is well to remember that this last gait is the hardest of all on the horse; for this reason he should not ordinar ily be asked to go at this gait for more than a mile without change.

THE RANCH AJO«AiiOfTiiIi«iifeTHEHpMPINTH!'NEWWESI. VOL. XXII. NO. 17 THE COOPERATIVE TELEPHONE THE eight miles of sand and sage brush lying between Sunnysidt and our nearest railroad point, Mabton, on the Northern Pacific, has always been a barrier in the way of our development. From the start we were building railroads and dreaming of airships, or the more tangible trolly lines. But the real thing we have been against for all these years. To meet trains eight miles away was one of our difficulties and from the start we were feeling the need of a telephone. For two years my people were revolv ing the question. We corresponded with a number of co-operative eastern companies. We concluded in the spring of 1900 to establish a line. There were only four subscribers, S. J. Harrison, D. B. Eby, S. H. Miller, and the writer. We gave our indi vidual notes to an eastern party for $100 each and this gave us a fund to start with. When we were ready to build the line we had 18 instru ments spok...

2 To Open The Flathead Reservation. IN LESS than two years the great Flathead Indian Reservation In Montana will be opened to loca tion by settlers. Th's is said to be among the finest, if not the finest, of agricultural lands in the state of Montana, and those who are fortunate enough to draw lands there will not have cause to regret it, so far as quality of soil is concerned. For the information of the public Congress man Joseph M. Dixon has made pub lic an interesting artcle upon the re servation, describing the land and stating the method of filing, etc. He says: The Flathead reservation embraces an area of country a little larger than the state of Delaware, containing ap proximately 1.500,000 acres of land The government surveys are now in progress and will be completed by De cember of this year. Under the terms of the b'll opening this reservation to settlement, after the surveys are com pleted and the plats have been made and filed, the Indians now on the re servation will fi...

4 HORTICULTURAL NOTES Beginning with the nexl issue oi Th« Ranch, September i-">, the horti cultural editor will commence a series of articles that will run indefinitely, probably a year or two. The title for iliis series of article! will be Orchard Problems. Of course matters of this kind are receiving constant attention in this department, but this will be a systematic treatment or such matters. They will be written from the stand point of the practical fruitgrower in the Pacific northwest. First, there will be the matter of locat/on and the kind of soil adapted to our deciduous fruits. Then will follow articles on the selection of trees, including that of varieties to plant for money-making in a commercial orchard. Then will come the preparation of the trees — how much pruning of both top and roots. The distance apart for plant ing the different kinds of fruit, apple, peach, pear, cherry and so on, will be duly considered. Then will come the treatment of the young orchards, in...

6 THE DAIRY The Utility of Pasteurizing Cream. The question of pasteurizing the cream at cream gathering creameries is one in which creamery men aro deeply interested, writes Geo. H. Barr, of Canada. Will the improvement in the quality of the butter pay for the expense of installing a pasteurizer and cooler, as well as for a sl'ghtly greater loss of butterfat in the buttermilk? Some of our creamery men are doubt ful if it will, while others say they would not be without the pasteurizer for anything. Why should there be such a difference of opinion? My judgment in connection with pasteurizing cream gathered cream 's based on our work at the dairy school and from the reports from the in structors when visiting the cream eries. Our experience at the dairy school was that pasteurizing the cream and nllow'ng it to stand over night without the addition of any cul ture gave a better flavored butter than was obtained from the same cream unpasteurized, but when about 10 per cent, pure cultur...
