4 HORTICULTURE F. WALDEN The Washington State Horticultural Association held its second annual meeting at Notth Yakima January 9-12, 19(16. The attendance was large ami the interest in the matters treat ed in the papers and addresses was very good. It is not the purpose of the writer to take up the program and give an outline of papers and ad dresses. The minutes of the meeting, including the papers and addresses. will be published and each member of the Association will receive a copy of the report. The sum of $1.00 consti tutes any one a member and I hesi tate not to say that the fruit grower that wants to keep up with the pro cession in fruit growing can not do a better thing than to send his dollar to Secretary L. G. Monroe, of Spokane, and get the report. The report can not be issued for some time yet, but send on the membership fee and the report will come in due time. No one will ever regret the spending of that dollar. * * * The officers for the present year are W. H. Paulha...

by these men. Their lectures are thought awakeners and will set the average farmer to thinking and that will set him to acting and so much good will come to him. * • * W. P. Cadwell, Deer Harbor. Wash., sends me a clipping from a farm pa per in which a certain kind of spray is recommended and wants me to tell him what I know about it. I do not know anything about it. The firm sending out the advertisement refer red to is one of the reliable houses of the country and I would be glad to commend the spray referred to, but I cannot. I copy the following statement from this advertisement: "Guaranteed to be the one efficient remedy for the black scale, red scale, San Jose scale, codling moth, woolly aphis, red spider and all other insects or fungous growth." This statement is preposterous. Any remedy that will be effective with the scales and aph ides cannot be of any use in combat ing the codling moth, for the simple reason that the scales and aphides belong to the sucking insects while ...

8 HOUSEHOLD Concerning Hardwood Floors. A woman who was thinking of hav ing now carpets in tin" spring was ad vistvl by city friends to have hard wood ttoon put down instead. They said tlio Boon can be laid over the old floor and will COSI no more than the earpeU, Bui while f know they are nmcn more cleanly, said the woman, I think it wonid be a great deal of work to keep them clean and free from dust. A polished hardwood lloor shows the dust the Bame as polished furniture, which we must dutt every day. Ot course it is best to clean out all dust every day. but a farm housekeeper who cannot afford to hire help cannot dust hardwood floors and stairs every day. The floors are no dustier than the carpets but the dust doesn't show on the carpets, which look well with a thorough BWeeping once a week. The hardwood floors would require some nips also, and these would need to be cleaned weekly, the same as carpets. We wish some of the readers who have hardwood floors in parlor or liv ing roo...

POULTRY H. L. 111. \N< IIA Hl» Hints for Beginners. A Bickleton. Wash., subscriber, re ferring to his plans to raise chickens, writes me as follows: "Would you tell me how many and what breed I would have to have to net me $1,000 a year at the Portland markets as that is where I expect to raise them?" Another subscriber, residing at Bow, Wash., writes: "I am planning to start in the poultry business on a small scale and naturally I am turn ing to you for advice and information. My means are limited and I want to go cautiously. My plans are for eggs for the market and capons for con sumption and the market.

8 THE DAIRY Production of Pure Milk. The milk problem, as it pertains to the supplies of towns and cities, may be approached from two direc tions—the one as the consumer con siders the question, and the other as the milk producer regards it. In our discussion of this problem, it is the purpose to approach it from the standpoint of the milk producer, be cause we believe this side seldom comes to light, and is less understood than that of the consumer. By doing this we hope to bring out some facts which will enable us to consider the whole milk problem more sanely and conservatively than is usually the cus tom without a knowledge of what the producer has to contend with. It is a pity that the city consumer, and usu ally the inspector, knows so little con cerning the cost of producing milk and those steps in manipulation necessary to the securing of pure milk. Since this knowledge must furnish the appre ciative spirit and rational interpreta tion, may we be permitted to view the situat...

solid, round the fat globules. As pre viously stated, the author cannot rec oncile Storch's theory that this layer consists of "mnoold substances" with known facts; but it appears very high ly probable that there is a layer, the composition of which is for the pres ent purpose immaterial, round each fat globule. As it is improbable that this layer is elastic, the effect of the im pact of one fat globule on another will be to squeeze out the layers between them, and bring the globules within the sphere of each other's attraction. In this way nuclei will be formed, which will, on continued churning, in crease in size; as the nuclei get largei and larger, the resistance, owing to fluid friction on their surfaces, will gradually bear a smaller and -smaller proportion to the force tending to bring them to the surface, and, at a given moment, the butter will "come." This theory is in accord with all the knowr facts. By microscopical examination of cream during churning the forma tion of n...

10 THE FIELD The Cultivation of Mushrooms. B. If. Duggar, author of a recent government bulletin, advocates the tissue method of spawn culture which is described essentially as follows: Test tubes or large mouth bottles are filled with frosh stable manure or with a compost and then sterilized. This material is then inoculated by select ing from a bed of vigorous growing mushrooms a variety which proved un usually prolific. With a sterilized scalpel and forceps, the stem is brok en off and the outer skin peeled off. Small bits of the tissue of the mush room are then taken and used to in oculate the manure in the sterilized bottles. It has been found that within the course of a week, or sometimes within two days, these bits of tissue will send out a small growth of mycelium which spreads to all parts of the tube or bottle within three or four weeks. This material can then be used as pure culture virgin spawn for inoculating bricks. This method of producing spawn has been found to be c...

12 Manure Spreaders Pay Well. One farmer who has tried the ma nure spreader tells his experience with it thus: "Hefore I bought a ma nure sproador, I found that, as a gen eral rule, wo applied manure too heav ily with a fork, with the result that grain grew too rank and would fall down. Aside from this, it was slow work and took up too much valuable time when other work is necessary. With the spreader one of my men hauls 15 big loads per day, spreading six 70-bushel loads per acre. It is all so finely and evenly distributed that I think I make manure go nearly twice as far as with fork spreading, besides it places the manure at just the right thickness to secure the best results. At least it secures all the good that can be had from manure, and at the same time does not waste any of its strength. As it is a great time sav ing piece of machinery, it aids us greatly in keeping up with our work. I think mine has more than paid for itself in two seasons' use. I would not think of being ...

14 LIVE STOCK Breeding With a Definite Purpose. (Henry Wallace.) The greatest trouble with the breed ing carried on on the farms is that it lacks definite purpose, and lacking this one thing lacks everything. Breed ing animals is not a matter of guess work, not an accident, and can be successful only by the use of brains. The first thing for the farmer to determine is what kind of live stock he will make the main feature on his farm —horses, cattle, sheep, or hogs— and the place that he will give to sub ordinate features. To illustrate: If a farmer intends to make milk proauc tion the main feature of his farm, he should develop a breed of cows that will give a paying quantity of milk. If he is on a small farm, has to buy considerable of his feed, wants to make fancy butter-making his specialty, has a market for it, and cares little or nothing about beef pro duction, then he should by all means use the special purpose dairy breeds. If he has broad, flat, rich lands like they have in ...

THE RANCH . Vol. XXIII. No. 5. Some Fundamental Requisites for Success in Gardening LAND to be used for vegetable growing should be rich. There should be plant-food material, and this material should be in such a state as to be quickly available, for to a great extent the earliest or "quick ness" of the land depends on the availability of the plant food. Suc cessful market gardening depends en tirely on the plant growing quickly and continuously. Vegetables that are slow-growing or intermittent in growth not only fail to reach the market or the table at the desired time, but they are also poor in quality. The first thing, then, to do in planning the vege table garden is to secure the right kind of soil, then to prepare it thor oughly before the plants are put on it. In most cases the preparation of the soil will be much helped by an appli cation of commercial fertilizer. The physical condition of the soil is more important than the original rich ness in plant food —the latter can be...

2 thing is to fertilize. There are two kinds of tillage practised—tillage to prepare the soil for receiving the crop, and tillage to maintain the soil in good condition for the growth of the crop. In the first the land should be loosened and pulverized as deep as ordinary roots go; to maintain the soil in ideal condition the surface should be tilled or stirred as often as it becomes crust ed or compacted. The depth to which the soil should be pulverized or plow ed will vary with the character of the soil and the crop that is to be planted; it must be determined in each par ticular case. Land that is very hard, or in which there is a high subsoil, nearly always needs to be plowed deep, the effort being to deepen the soil. On the other hand, lands which are sandy or leachy generally should be plowed shallow, the idea being to com pact the under soil and thereby pre vent the leaching. The root crops, such as late beets, parsnips, carrots, horse-radish and the like, demand deep plowing,...

4 HORTICULTURE r. "WALDEN As told in this department recently a committee has been appointed to revise our horticultural law. If the law had nothing in it objectionable so far as its legal phases are concern ed it would still need revising on ac count of its faulty diction. Let me call attention to a few of the bad expres sions: In Section 2 we are informed that the state horticultural commis sioner is to "exercise a supervisory directory over the horticultural indus tries of the state." What is a "su pervisory directory?" It is hardly nec essary to state that the word "direct ory" is improperly used in this case. That is a faulty way to say that the commissioner is to exercise supervis ion. Again, in the same section we are told that the commissoner is to "give such instructions to fruit cul turists regarding cultivation, and ex termination of fruit pests, as to the nature of the case may demand." Fruit pests do not need any cultiva tion. It may be said that it was meant to say tha...

demonstrated that salt adds nothing to Its efficiency as an Insecticide. If it has any value at all It is in making the wash stick better, but this is of doubtful value. In the writer's or chards the wash without the salt sticks the entire summer and is vis ible on the trees one year after it is placed there. Prof. C. V. Piper, formerly of the Washington State College at Pullman, demonstrated be yond a doubt that the salt Is not nec essary. In spraying large orchards this is a saving that in some cases amounts to hundreds of dollars. We are also indebted to Prof. Piper for what, Is now known as the "Washing ton formula" used in the preparation of this efficient wash. Piper, after numerous experiments, recommended what he styles the 1-1-4 formula, but suggested that in some cases it might be advisable to use a stronger solution which he designated as the 1-1-3 for mula. The Washington formula means that we use one pound of sul phur, one pound of lime and four gal lons of water. It ma...

6 POULTRY ———— H. Is. BLANCHARD ——— Fertility of the Eggs. "Can fertility of the eggs be insur ed?" is a question sometimes put to us. No. But, the person selling eggs for hatching should be held account able for providing the conditions that go to produce and secure fertile eggs, in so far as lies in his power to do so, which means that the fowls composing the flock, both males and females, should be in prime conditionnot poor in flesh nor too fat; not too youns nor too old: that all such fowls should be well developed, strong and vigor ous; that they should especially be well cared for, while producing the eggs to be used for hatching. The fowls and their quarters should be free from vermin and to make sure should be occasionally treated for same as a preventative. They should have a dust bath that will attract them and into which they will daily enter and dust —not a makeshift. They should have a constant supply of grit, ground or broken shells and bone and meat in some wholesome...
