*y*he poultry Y arcl * S. M. SHIPLEY ■ • • • • • EDITOR. (Wipes and Chicks. Gapes sound as alarming to the fancier as does croup to a mother; and we more often find treat ment prescribed for this disease, in the poultry pub lications, than for any other. Of course everyone has seen pictures of the gape worm and it may be that quite a number have seen the original of the picture. At best they are not pretty things and they are alarmingly prolific. There are a number of theories rife as to how the eggs are carried, one being that lice carry them, another that the gape worm is one of the forms assumed by the louse. Constant gapping is the symptom, but is attended by difficult breathing, coughing, wheezing, attempts to swallow, droopy appearance. Of course there is gapping without gapes, as we have already said, but it does not take a long time or an over critical ob server to determine the real disease. For treatment for gapes we have found small pills of camphor gum excellent. Some pr...

14 Fighting Infected Fruit. The county commissioners of Whatcom county have appointed D. C. Jenkins as fruit inspector for a term of two months. At the expiration of the two months, if deemed advisable, the appoint ment will be made permanent. Mr. Jenkins' ap pointment meets with the approval of all the substantial orchardists in the county. Mr. Jenkins was down to Seattle last week to consult with Prof. Brown as to the best methods, etc., of keeping out this insect-infested fruit. By the appointment of Mr. Jenkins as inspector the county commissioners intend to at once stop any shipments of infected fruit to that port. Some fruit shippers in California thought that if they could not get this class of fruit into Seattle they would send it to smaller cities, such as Whatcom and Everett. Now Whatcom has done the right thing in putting a quietus on this at once. Kver ett should also take great precautions, if she has not done so, and other cities be on guard. Now! fruitmen of Everett a...

RANCH AND RANGE- V.L 4, No. 24 Another Way of Drying Prunes. Chelan, Wash., Aug. 29, 1898. Editor Ranch and Range: I notice an inquiry in your issue of August 20th in regard to dipping prunes, and an answer by Mr. Baker. While Mr. Baker gives the process in general use, and the way in which it should be done, but more often not, I would advise "Sub scriber" not to use any lye at all, if he wants fine, pure fruit, unless you have plenty of clear run ning water to wash with after dipping; even then it is impossible to wash the lye entirely off. While there is no doubt it hastens the evaporation, but ' it is good to eat on prunes why not cook your meat in it; it will certainly make it tender. If you wish to use a cleanly method, use a steam box. Put your prunes on the trays, put them in the box, and turn on a pressure of about three pounds of steam, leave them for 10 or 12 minutes, then put into the evaporator. You will thus save five t# six hours' time. Last season I used a Monteith s...

4 On the basis of cost, comparisons were made of the value of potatoes and other feeding stuffs. In the investigator's opinion, with foods at the pres ent prices, it is doubtful whether it would be profitable to feed large amounts of potatoes to dairy stock, because cows require more protein than would be supplied by a fattening ration sim ilar in character to that mentioned above. Potatoes cannot be fed to young animals as safely as to more mature ones, since if fed in too large quantities they have a tendency to prema turely fatten the animal. With mature animals when the object is principally the addition of fat to the body, potatoes may be fed to good ad vantage. When the crop of potatoes is large and prices low, a method of storing and feeding potatoes to advantage is desirable. A method of preserving potatoes which at the same time cooks them would seem to be worthy of trial but it would doubtless be wise to experi ment on a small scale at first.— Department of Agriculture. , ...

Characteristics of Dairy Cows. M. L. Matterson. Of all animals under the dominion of man, cattle are the most useful. In all countries where civil ization prevails cattle are used and have been through all the past years of which we have any history. It has only been, however, within the last three centuries that any great progress has been made in their improvement over those qualities given by nature. The excellent qualities in pure bred cattle have been developed chiefly through artificial conditions, namely, breeding, feeding and management, says a writer in Farm Students' Re view. He further says: Through the science of breeding and feeding the many different breeds of cattle have originated, each breed having some par ticular trait that characterizes it from all other breeds. The dairy breeds have been bred through succes sive generations with but one object in view—that to develop their milking qualities, and the progress that has been made is demonstrated in the quan tity an...

G Accurate Tests on Feeding Pigs. Many of the conditions, in regard to the grains and food which can be raised to feed hogs, are the same in Montana as here in the far north west. For this reason and because the agricul tural experiment station at Bozeman, Mont., has made some accurate tests in regard to feeding bar ley, peas and wheat to pigs and they give such reports as to the cost and the kind of pork ob tained and other results, we have condensed the report and give it below: Montana is blessed with a climate in which the pig thrives. The extreme heat of the summer months is much less than in the corn-growing states, and hogs do not suffer from this cause. Corn can be grown successfully in this state only in a few localities, because of the high altitudes, cool nights, and low humidity; but these con ditions are requisites for the successful growing of wheat, oats and barley. The utilization of these crops upon the farrr-, and their marketing in the form of pork, mutton and bee...

Mr. Hill had with him many prominent eastern men. Briefly, Mr. Hill's improvements here were out lined by a Great Northern official as follows: "Mr. Hill has brought here Mr. D. A. Robinson, who is the most extensive elevator builder in the United States. He constructed a steel elevator for Mr. Hill in Buffalo which is one of the largest in the country. In order to take up the present work Mr. Robinson had to cancel contracts for six ele vators in lowa and Illinois. Mr. Hill intends to have Mr. Robinson ...

Quotations relating to the hen are comparatively rare, but from the earliest days proud chanticleer has been an object of interest to the poets from Homer down. Milton tells us in his wondrous "Paradise Lost," in the description of the creation of bird life, of— "♦ * * the crested cock whose clarion sounds The silent hours, and the other whose gay train Adorns him, color'd with the florid hue Of rainbows and of starry eyes." In Milton's "L'Allegro' again we read of— "While the cock with lively din, Scatters the rear of darkness thin, And to the stack, or the barn door, Stoutly struts his dames before." Also further on in the same poem— "Ere the first cock his matin rings." In "Mariana of the Moated Grange" we hay "Upon the middle of the night, Waking she heard the night fowl crow, The cock sung out an hour ere light; From the dark fen the oxen's low Came to her." In his lovely poem to Fancy, Keats writes: "Thou shalt see the field mouse peep Meagre from its celled sleep, And the sna...

10 Making Whale Oil Soap. A subscriber of this journal at East Sound writes as follows to Horticultural Commissioner Baker: "Dear Sir —In June 24 number of Ranch and Range I read an article from you on spraying fruits, and also on the making of whale-oil soap, where you state that it can be made by the grow ers at home. Now, I desire to get the necessary in formation for making whale-oil soap, as 1 have to use it considerably in spraying for the aphis, and I find it rather expensive to pay from 6c to 7c per pound and often get an inferior article. Will you send me directions for making the soap, or refer me to some one who has had experience in making it, and greatly oblige?" Office of Commissioner of Horticulture. Tacoma, Wash., Aug. 29, 1898. Editor Ranch and Range: My answer to the above is that the formula in common use for making whale-oil soap (which 1 give in small proportion, that can be made as large as desirable), is as follows: One (1) pound best concentrated lye, caustic...

"phe poultry Y arc*- S. M. SHIPLEY • • • ■ • EDITOR. Poultry Exhibitions Stimulate. The advantage of the poultry show is that it stimulates one to greater effort, shows him what other men are doing in the same line, and encour ages by a comparison of notes. The man who always stays home, never goes to a poultry show, has little interest in such matters, and rather looks down upon the whole business, is just the one who seldom succeeds, and who is always decrying the success of others. It is a good thing to compete for the ppultry exhibitions. The man who tries to beat his neighbor in raising fine birds is al ways sure to breed scientifically, raise the best poultry, read up on all points that concern his business, and in short be right up to date. If such a man does not give all of his attention to the breeding, but divides it up equally with a study of the markets, he will make money in the poultry business if it is possible for any one. The fellow who has a little of the fancier i...

If made in the morning and then placed in the re frigerator or down in the cellar to cool, this dish, which can be prepared on every farm, will be eaten with relish. Do not let the milk get too sour, or heat the milk so hot that the curd will be too hard. WEATHER REPORT. Seattle, Wash., Sept. 8, 1898. The week ending Monday, September 5, was one of moderate temperature, considerable cloudiness, and two rainy spells, the 31st of August and the 2d of September, on which days quite copious showers fell. With the exception of slight interrup tions from the rains, the weather was very favorable for farm work, for com pleting the harvest, and continuing the threshing. The latter is about com pleted in the earlier sections. The re sults have been very satisfactory. The oat harvest, which has been under way during the past two weeks in the La- Conner, Skagit, Olympia and Samish flats, is a very satisfactory one. Nothing has...
