fi Ranching in Wenatchee. J. L. Weytheman, who is located in the Wenat chee valley below Mission Station, has a dairy of eleven cows. He has been breeding up his stock, having at the head of the herd the animal we herewith reproduce. Mr. Weytheman's farm, as well as those of some of his neighbors, is irrigated by water raised from the Wenatchee river by the old-fashioned yet very serviceable water wheel. We show two of them in operation. There is an other one in the vicinity that the picture does not show, and the three have a capacity of 600 gallons. How to Dip Prunes. Mica, Wash.

National Irrigation of Lands. Ellensburg, Wash., Aug. 19, 1898. Editor Ranch and Range: I see the National Irrigation Congress meets in Cheyenne, Wyo., September 1, 2 and 3. Has the importance of this meeting occurred to you? A meeting that portends for good or ill of a vast em pire. It seems to me the people in the Eastern states do not grasp the situation here; they do not comprehend the great inheritance there is in these arid lands. They almost regard us as alien ene mies because, forsooth, we come in competition with them with some of the products of the soil. They do not seem to know who we are; that we are their brothers and sisters, their sons and daughters, 'bone of their bone and flesh of their flesh.' We have braved the savages of the plains, endured the hardships and privations of pioneer life that we might have a home of our own, and have converted a desert into a fruitful field and caused the mines to yield up their precious metals in fabulous amounts. They seem not to...

10 Hairy Vetch or Sand Vetch. From a Report by the IT. S. Dept. of Agriculture. The demand for early spring forage crops is in creasing in almost every section of the United States. This demand arises from a variety of causes, chief among which is the rapid increase of the dairying industry. Soiling crops and pastures supply the desired succulent forage from early summer until the first autumn freeze, and ensilage and root crops tide over the early winter. With good management such substitutes for green forage may be made to last until the grass starts, but on too many American farms there is a period of shortage of succulent feed in late winter and spring. To bridge over this critical period, annual legumin ous crops, such as crimson clover and the vetches, are each year coming deservedly into greater prom inence. The vetches are nitrogen gatherers. Like the clovers, they have the property of absorbing through their roots the free gaseous nitrogen of the air, which is present in al...

'yhe poultry yard# S. M. SHIPLEY EDITOR. Mr. Day's Experience. We had a call a few days ago from Mr. E. F. Day, of Fremont. While in conversation with him, he related a very interesting and instructive ac count of his experience with poultry lice and how he finally got rid of them? Mrs. Day is a great lover of poultry; likes to have them and take care of them. Of late years she has been very much pleased with the Plymouth Rocks. Soon after commencing to live here, we bought a few exceptionally good Plymouth Rockt which we first saw at a poultry exhibition. For the first ten years they paid well. But three years ago they began to do poorly, and since then they have not paid for their feed. We changed roosters every year, paying as high as $10 to $20 for trios. One of these trios was bought from Mr. Ladd, of Portland. "We did everything we could for the chickens in the way of good feeds and variety of feeds, giving soft feed and everything else. But none of these things did any good. ...

14 Improving the Farm. The wide-awake, progressive farmer will always be on the alert to enhance the value of his farm in every possible way. He will not depend upon terming as a means of earning a livelihood only, but will strive to improve his farm and financial condition simultaneously. The farm and stock may be regarded as so much necessary capital. Improvements can be added, either by making the farm and buildings more convenient or by making the soil more productive. Frequently both can be combined. It is surprising to notice how little attention Few realize how much a neat, well-kept lawn adds some farmers pay to the improvement of their premises as regards convenience and appearance, to the beauty of a home. A few well selected flowers and shrubs cost but little, but they help wonderfully in transforming aj desert into an oasis. Lawn mowers are cheap, and the time necessary to clip the lawn can always be found. Farmers are apt to be too careless about such things, thinking i...

Purpose of the State Fair. Editor Ranch and Range: I believe our subscription is overdue. Please find money order for renewal. Ranch and Range steadily improves and keeps the rancher well posted in all needed lines of state news. M. I* Matt erson's protest against the state fair committee granting saloon privileges ought to find enough protests to forever settle the matter in regard to a state institution the agricultural part of the population hope to see develop into an edu cational factor which all can recognize as a potent power for good. Most of the "privileges" connected with fairs are not. a necessary auxiliary, and I hope the good work the committee has done toward overcoming the past mismanagement of affairs will not be per verted by granting privileges of a questionable character. Our county fair received its death blow from such causes, and now that the state fair is so near, will probably never be resurrected. Surely our state is resourceful enough to supply necessary me...

RANCH AND RANGE- Vol. 4, No. 23 CONDUCT AT FAIRS. So great is the variety of stock, produce and ma chinery entering into the composition of a state fair, or other large fair, that the average country visitor is apt to become bewildered in seeking among so many good things the manifold lessons to be learned by intelligent inquiry and observa tion. Desultory study of books leads to but a ••smattering" of knowledge regarding literature or a given subject; and anything apart from earnest, well-arranged work during a visit to the fair re sults' in loss of both time and the profitable facts or deductions to be acquired. A wild scramble around the stalls and stables, a peep into a box stall here and there, a cursory survey of the pig and sheep pens, an uninformed watching of the work in the judging ring, and rapid tours of the machinery and produce build ings merely serve to tire and confuse the visitor; they certainly do not furnish him any reliable in formation for future reference in th...

4 however, and they seem to command fair prices. Though only an early winter sort, it has been found to keep fairly well in cold storage, and to sell readily at high prices in British markets. It is pre-eminently an apple for dessert use in the fresh state, and by its beauty and convenient size is particularly adapted for sale in small lots from stands and stores for immediate consumption. It is a late autumn or early winter variety, except In the more Northern districts, and is inclined to wilt and wrinkle in ordinary storage after New Year, but in cold storage is successfully held to a much later date. Because of its tender flesh and thin skin special care in picking, handling and packing are imperative in marketing the Jonathan. It Is easily bruised and its market value materially lessened by careless handling. "The yellow Newton pippin commands the best price in the market, averaging about $1, while the other varieties, except the fancy red, are selling at from 75 cents to $1. "...

Whitman County: Guy—Week fine for threshing and saving grain. Results show that frost in June damaged considerable fall wheat. Potatoes are an average crop. Klickitat County: Bingen—Farmers mostly en ggaed in shipping peaches and prunes. Grapes are ripe. Centerville —Grain yield satisfactory. Note. —As this bulletin goes to press telegraphic reports are received of copious rains in the eastern section about Spokane and Walla Walla. Whether injury was caused to wheat cannot be determined at present. Look Out for Dodder. Editor Ranch and Range: Mr. Izett sends in a specimen of dodder, taken from a field of clover. I wish to warn the farmers on the west side to look out for this weed. It is gradually spreading in clover fields west of the mountains, and will be a serious pest soon if not eradicated. It may easily be recognized from its peculiar appearance. It is a fine, yellow, leafless vine, winding itself thickly around the stems of the clover. It is a parasite, living by sucking the...

6 EVAPORATION OF PRUNES. By H. M. Williamson. (Reproduced by the courteous permission of Mr. Wil liamson, from his journal, the Oregon Agriculturist.) While the practice of dipping prunes in boiling lye before they are dried is strongly condemned by many persons who have written on the subject, it remains a fact that nearly all of the prunes cured in the United States are so dipped. The chief ob ject of this dipping is to hasten the operation of drying. The bath in lye removes the oily bloom from the surface of the skin. It also develops in the skin a multitude of minute cracks. As a re sult the moisture escapes more readily from the fruit, the liability to dripping is lessened, and the time of drying is reduced by about one-fourth or one-fifth. An incidental benefit of the lye-dipping process is that when properly done it thoroughly cleanses the fruit. Another benefit which is claimed for the dipping process is that it makes the skin of the prune more tender. The objection urged ag...

their markets, enlarged their capacities and are pushing the manufactured products of Washington grain into the various importing countries of the world, while there is no apparent limit to their field, with the employment of enterprise in seeking after trade across the waters of the Pacific. A new era of commercial progress has opened up during the year. Oriental markets are steadily expanding. Hawaii has become American soil and offers opportunities for trade which are being taken advantage of; the Philippines will open to the Washington manufacturer and producer, and Alaska has become a healthy and large consumer of our products. On all sides the same promises of prosperity and business activity are apparent, and the permanency of these conditions is equally promising.—West Coast Trade. Helping Fruit Growers.
