4 HORTICULTURE F. WALDEN At the request of Prof. Waller, of the State College at Pullman, my son, Smiley Walden. kept an accurate ac count of the cost of caring for 41 Rome Beauty apple trees during the past season. The apples from these trees were sold for $501. After de ducting the cost of cultivating, thin ning, spraying, picking, packing, haul ing to market, and counting in the cost of boxes, the whole amounting in the aggregate to $139, we find left as a net profit from the 41 trees the sum of $362. This shows the average net return from each tree to be $8,825. These 41 trees occupy about one-half acre of ground, so that we reckon a net return of $724 to the acre. Now, it must be remembered that this is not guess work. It is easy to make an estimate and give big returns as the result but such reports are not satisfactory. * * * Before leaving this matter I wish to record some observations and make some suggestions. The price of ap ples is high this year. Last year we sold the a...

cheap grade or a high grade of ap ples If a man by what he raises or sells becomes the means of scatter ing a pest or disease, let him be punished. But will a man scatter the codling moth pest by selling his cull apples to a neighbor who already has this pest? Not a bit more than putting a man who has the smallpox into a smallpox hospital will scatter that disease. Will a man scatter the codling moth by sending his cull ap ples to Alaska where an apple tree cannot be grown? No! • * * It is claimed by some that if we al low a man to sell cull apples when some are wormy, or have been, we can never stamp out that pest. That is true, but why? Because we can never stamp it out, anyhow. The man does not live who can tell how to stamp out this pest. Some ignorant reporter who knows no more about horticulture than a goose does about astronomy, or some bombastic man who wants to blow about the great things he can do, if he is allowed to have his own way, may talk or write about stamping out ...

6 HOUSEHOLD Essentials for a Happy Home. For the family there is no question to which so much thought and atten tion should be given as to that of the home. It should be made the most inviting place of all; its environment so pleasant that it should eclipse thai of all other places. That this is the desire of most home makers is be yound question, but just how to cre ate these conditions is the problem that confronts them. There is a great diversity of opinion as to what con stitute the essential elements of a happy and comfortable home. Yet with this problem confronting them it should not be so great or trouble some a question with those who live the simple and wholesome life of the farm. They are the possessors of happy children, pets, money enough to meet their needs, plenty to eat, clothes enough and nice enough, and in the farm home there abound love and confidence, the supreme essentials of a happy home. It is the first thought on the farm as the season of cold draws nigh to p...

I THE DAIRY New Attack by the Oleo Interests. The safety of pure butter from com petition with oleomargarine is again menaced, if certain reports from the east are correct. As all those identi fied with the butter industry of the country know, the protection that but ter enjoys from its spurious competi tor lies in the fact that butter pro duct ts haw permission to color their product a shade that suits the demand of the trade, whenever the color is lacking, which it is, under certain con ditions of feed, as governed by cli mate, seasons, certain conditions of soil and with the great majority of the cows of the country. In times past, butter was made mostly from natural pasturage which gives a rich, yellow shade to butter and in this way the public taste many years ago was educated to demand a yellow shade of butter. Nowadays we make butter in winter as well as in summer. The natural pastures of the eastern states can produce only a small pro portion of the country's butter sup ply,...

The flocks of laying hens and pul lets, also the pullets that are not lay ing, should be receiving special at tention at this time. No doubt many of them, and very likely nearly all of those comprising the average flocks, are debating whether or not they will enter upon their duties as egg pro ducers or take another two months rest before doing so. Their physical condition will have much to do with their decision. The hens are just about getting over their moult and no doubt many of the pullets are the same. If they have been neglected during the past two months their de cision will be against goirg on duty until their systems have had time to recuperate from the strain exacted by the growth of a new s...

smaller and less vigorous stock of days gone by. Their efforts to in troduce throughout the country the several standard varieties of turkeys has greatly benefitted this turkey. This effort has supplied rich, new, vig orous blood throughout the west, add ing strength and vigor to innumer able flocks and thereby, to some ex tent building up the stock that had become deteriorated through the care lessness and inattention of the pro ducers themselves. The fact that one fecundity is sufficient to render fer tile all the eggs of one laying has made possible the undermining of the health and vigor of the present-day domestic turkey. Being advised of this hundreds of people depend upon their neighbor's flock for the services of a male and pay no attention to the matter of breeding stock except to keep one or two turkey hens.

Under the heading of live stock he includes fowls as well as cattle. In his view, no vocation offers great cm- opportuni ties than the breeding of stock.

O3ch one thousand pounds was: Calves. $31.00; yearlings, $27.00; two year-olds. $19.10; three-year-olds, $12.80. When all of the cattle of all ages were purchased at 4c a pound and sold fat at 5c a pound, the profit on $1,000 invested in feeding cattle was: Calves, $557.50; yearlings, $284 ; two-year-olds. $198.75; three-year-olds, $177.50. Nine-tenths of all the cattle fed in the western states are two-year-olds at the beginning of the feeding period. When these cattle are in thin condi tion at the beginning of the experi ment, they are often fed with profit; but starting with calves in the same condition it is unquestionably true that the calves return more profit for each thousand dollars invested than the older cattle.

This is a wrong impresison. No such arrangements were ever made. In an emergency case the law pro vides that the state commissioner has the power to order an inspector of an adjoining county to perform needed duties when necessary in another county. It also provides that when necessary an inspector may call for a qualified assistant to aid him.

i it indirectly benefits them all. no mat ter how independent they assume to be. For example, I shall cite conditions as I learned them to be in Skagit county during the campaign for the position of fruit inspector. Some farmers raising oats saw no need of what they thought was unnecessary expense to maintain such an office, because from their point of view it was not a successful fruit county. They are prosperous in their farming and most land available for, their purpose is far out of reach of the aver age farmer because it commands too high a price, and if any is available the oat farmers are too eager to se cure it, for they know its value and have the cash for its purchase. If the county is to grow and develop the remaining and greater part of the land not profitable for oats must be occupied with crops best suited to it and returning the greatest remunera tion. This kind of farming requires more skill for its success than that of raising oats on soils so rich that, ro tation i...

4 HORTICULTURE —F.WALDEN I have lying before me two queries that may be very properly answered together. One comes from W. H. Heath, of Sumner, Wash., and asks whether the varieties recommended for a commercial orchard in a recent issue of this paper, under the head of Orchard Problems, are as well adapted to the Sound country as the Yakima. The other query comes from H. C. Atwell, Forest Grove, Oregon, and asks whether the 41 Rome Beauty trees, whose crop for this year was reported in the last issue, are east or west of the Cascades and if east, as he correctly supposes, then what can 1 say of this variety as adapted to the west side? * * * I have frequently pointed out in these columns the fact that some ap ples do better on the west side than they do on the east. This is notably true of the Baldwin, King and North ern Spy. The probability is that the same is true of some other varieties. It may be laid down as a general rule that any apple that is deficient in col or will not do ...
