were encamped in a hollow below the forts; that the dam constructed some months before was in a shaky condi tion and only needed the dislodg-ement of one or two of the log-s to open it to allow the water to escape; and, as the Indians were encamped directly in its pathway, they would doubtless be overwhelmed, provided they had no in timation of the scheme. The commander grasped the plan as an only recourse. "But," he objected, "who will dis lodge the supports of the dam? It is certain death, for even should the one who g"oes escape death at the hands of the Indians, he could not escape after the dam breaks." "Better one than a hundred," John Weston replied. "I will go." It was finally agreed to, and just before dawn Weston stole silently away, after an affectionate farewell to his comrades, for whose lives he was about to sacrifice his own. All in the fort listened with bated breath for an hour after his departure, but no sound broke the stillness of the night. The Indians with only...

14 BEN FRANKLINS. Borrowed From the Ram's Horn. A loafer is never satisfied with his wages. A drunkard's throat has no bottom to it. The man who hates light is always afraid of his own shadow. When people have only a little re ligion they are apt to be ashamed of it. The man goes to bed tired who spends the day looking for an easy place. The easiest thing for a fool to do is to tell how little he knows. As long as prizefighting pays better than preaching the devil will feel that he still owns the earth. Some fiddlers can play a tune on one string, but it never makes anybody want to dance. Angels weep on the day a young man begins to spend more mony than he can make. A hypocrite feels better satisfied with himself every time he sees a good man make a misstep. A FRONTIER SERMON. Fred R. Reed, In Prosser American. One snowy morning up in the wilds of Montana, during- the construction of the Northern Pacific railroad, we de cided to take up a collection for a poor fellow who was sick wi...

BEHEADED WHEAT. Here's a singular thing we find about WHEAT: Knock off the first letter, and then we have HEAT. Appropriate, very, at this time of year, But knock off the H and then what have we here? What happens the product of mixed heat and wheat? It's well known as bread, and the same we do EAT. Now, knock off the X and it's easy as scat! To see that the balance tells where we are AT. Now, shave off the A and it's easy to see What's left of our wheat tells the tal« toaT, And when that goes too we have only z^ro, And that's where wheat prices seem'd likely to yo — [until last week.] FUNNY LITTLE BITS.

THE RANCH ONE DOLLAR A YEAR. WEEKLY. A Journal of The Land and The Home in The New West. VOL. I. NO. 14. PROSPECTS. Some very intelligent Americans who have been in Europe lately— among them J. J. Hill, of St. Paul say that a most notable advance to ward bimetalism has been made in Europe because of the vigorous course of this country in stopping the exces sive coinage of silver. Now that the United States can no longer be used as a dumping ground for the surplus sil ver of Europe in exchange for our gold, those countries feel the necessity of coming to our terms, which are an international money standard for both gold and silver, and the coinage of both on an equal basis by all coun tries of importance. The prospect is good for a reassembling of the inter national money congress this year, with a chance of definite action. The present gradual but steady rise of sil ver, with the almost certain reopening of the mints of India to silver coin age, and the rapid improvement in gold min...

2 all kinds of curly fruits in the Missis sippi valley, and injured the later ones in many localities, as already reported in Thk Ranch. These conditions are sad enoug-h for our eastern brothers, but they insure fair prices for the al most certain great harvests of the Pa cific coast states, of which Washing ton is now fairly in the lead with all the standard fruits grown here. Dry weather in the non-irrigated parts of California is causing alarm there for the field crops that depend on spring rains for a start. In this inter-moun tain region the winter snows and late rains insure a harvest on the hills, while most of the valleys are made in dependent of weather by plentiful ir rigation. Prosser's opening day—the celebra bration of the completion of the irri gation canal that will water 3,000 acres of land and be the means of building up a good town —was a successful evi dence of the victory of mind, and en ergy, and faith over the so-called des ert and the river. It was a union of ...

4 HOW TO BREAK A COLT. The great number of miserably "broken," untamed horses in this country renders the following by a noted horse trainer especially timely: A colt should never be "broken." His training should begin at an early age. He should be taught at least two things before he is a month old, viz: to submit to being held by the halter and to be tied to the manger. Haying done this perfectly, I had as soon the colt received no additional lessons un til such time as his services are re quired. A spirited horse that can be ap proached and that will stand quietly at the halter can be taught to lead promptly in ten minutes' time. All that is required is a light rope halter. The operator saould stand at the side of his horse. Take a backward step, at the same time giving- a short, sharp pull on the rope. Loosen at once. Then repeat the operation. As soon as the horse follows, and he will al most immediately, rub his head and give him some article of food of which he is fond. Repea...

Irrigating the Coddling Moth. An Oregon orchardist has accident ally discovered that spraying apple trees with cold water is a deadener on the coddling moth, one of the worst pests of the apple orchard. C. H. Klum, of Ashland, writes the Orego nian that sufficient tests have been made in that locality to demonstrate that the best of old-fashioned clean apples can be raised by those having water that can be applied by hose with force enough to reach the tops of the trees. The evening, he says, is the best time to make the application, as moths work in the night, and there would be less danger of mildew, but any time of day is better than not to spray at all. He thinks it might not be necessary to spray every day. but it is safer to do so. Relinquishrnents, First Class Homesteads and Desert Claims Located. Arddess A. BYERS. KIONA. WASH, or A. H.

Vefe damage in Maryland and Dela ware, there will undoubtedly be some orchards located on high ground, prac tically what we would call in the mountain districts, that, being colder, had not bloomed out, and these may be spared and produce part of a crop; but with the strawberry crop cut off, the cherry crop missing, and other early fruits out of the way, there will be a keen, sharp demand for whatever is left. It is not the 3,000 car loads of fruit from the Pacific coast that sup plies the market, but it is the other thousands of car loads of small lots of near by production, and in fact the shipments that never reach the main markets, that affect the price. These things all must be taken into consideration, and if the crop is gen erally cut off it will make a good de mand for what is left. G. W. B. YAKIMA HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. The monthly meeting of the county horticultural society had a rather slim attendance, because all members are so busy with important farm work. Among the me...

The way in which our eastern friends are subscribing for Thk Ranch is pleasing evidence of the interest taken in Washington agriculture by eastern farmers and business men. In Thk Ranch article on sugar beets in Washington last week the printers made us say Whatcom for Whitman county. Of course Whitman was in the lead in interest in this line of ex periments.

TOMATO BLIGHT INVESTIGATIONS. By Prof. 0. V. Piper, Washington Agricul tural College. The fact that this term is used to de note at least three distinct diseases, in different sections of the country, prob ably explains the error in your last is sue of confusing our Washington to mato blight with the tomato blight of Florida. As a matter of fact the lat ter is an entirely distinct disease from the one which damages our tomato crop so seriously. The Florida tomato blight is caused by a fungus which attacks the tomato stem at the surface of the ground, the result being the more or less complete wilting of the tops of the plant, but never any yellow discoloration. Our Washington blight, on the contrary, first discloses itself by the yellowish color of the diseased plant, the color being more pronounced as the disease progresses. So, unfortunately, the discoveries regarding the Florida blight are only of suggestive value to us. It may be that our blight is the same as the one described ...

Once while in the Sound country The ImTERVIEWEK was informed that Dr. Frank of Puyallup was interest ing himself in Osier willow culture. The Intkkvikwer was to visit him at that time and ascertain something on the subject for publication, but did not succeed in meeting him. A short time ago Dr. Frank removed to North Yakima, and I have availed myself of the privilege of an interview upon the subject. I was informed at the outset that the doctor secured 5,000 cuttings from New Jersey three years ago and plant ed them for the purpose of growing sufficient to start an extensive busi ness in the line of willow growing and manufacturing if opportunity offered. He has refused to dispose of cuttings so far, and now has a million and a half of them—enough for many acres. Do you now intend starting in the business in the Puyallup country? I a...

12 A ROUMANIAN SONG. In the green garden sitteth on a bod Of columbine a young and rosy maid. Under the shade of roses white and red. A young man lingers as he passes by; ••() fair and overfair for such as I; Art thou a maid, dear heart?" 1h all his cry. "Or art thou some glad peasant's mated dove Or a white goddess sent from heaven aboye?" "No goddess I, nor any peasant's love. But ft Carnation in this garden sown, A red Carnation In tills garden grown; Youth, hast thofi not some flower for thine own?" "Nay, none I have," he said; "the dew am I.

'4 A THRKK-CORNKRKI) FKiHT. By Capt Kivd it. Reed. Many vexations, complicated, knotty problems confront a man as ho jog* along- through life. He falls down, gets up, and keeps repeating this per formance as long as he breathes. It is one long, hard struggle for life, lib erty and possession all along the line. There is, however, one fight every man must make, and if victory be his he is indeed a hero. And that great battle is with self. It's a three-cor nered proposition between his God, the devil and himself, and the devil never sleeps. A man is brought into this world without having anything to say in the matter; he just arrives, is placed in life's treadmill, and at it he goes. If he is a good little man, does not inherit any of the appetites or passions that are frequently handed down for generations, is perfectly wil ling to travel in well-beaten paths, willing to accept the creeds, doctrines and beliefs of his ancestors, has no spirit of adventure, of speculation, of romance,...
