14 LIVE STOCK Mr. Foster Sounds a Warning. Before the recent annual meeting of the Inland Registered Stock Breeders' association held at Pullman, W. D. Foster, foreman of the State College farm, spoke on the subject of feeding the beef steer. In his opening remarks he addressed himself particularly to the wheat farmers of the Inland Em pire, warning them that they cannot always depend on their big wheat farms paying them as handsomely as they have of late years. He referred to the statements made by wheat farmers to the effect that in keeping cattle on their ranches they were do ing themselves an injury. Mr. Foster disavowed any intention to dispute the sincerity of their statements. He ad mitted they have been favored with an abundant harvest of wheat almost every year, and their minds have grown obstuse to any other phase of the farming question. They have, prac tically speaking, put all the eggs in one basket, and, so long as the Hes sian fly, weavil and other wheat pests do not ...

V The Campbell System of Soil Culture THE system of culture of the soil as preached and practiced by H. W. Campbell, of Nebraska, is a subject of too large a scope to be treated in one article in The Ranch, or even two or three, but an attempt will be made here to convey to the reader the principles of the system. To those who wish to study the sys tem thoroughly we would suggest that they secure Mr. Campbell's manual on culture, a copy of which can be pur chased through The Ranch for fifty cents.

2 harrow and the sub-surface packer. It is well known that the plow throws up the soil in such a manner as to leave large air holes everywhere. These spaces must be immediately packed snugly in order that they may permit of no escape of moisture. The proper treatment of the surface of the soil and bringing it down to a fine tilth, or causing a mulch to be formed over the surface, will do the work of conserving the moisture. This mulch on the surface must be kept up throughout the season as much as possible, thus keeping the moisture from evaporating and furnishing the growing plants with a large amount of moisture that would otherwise evaporate. To Keep the Boy on the Farm. A great deal is being said these days about keeping the boy on the farm. Some of it is good, but more is worthless. In the advice given here, quoted from a contemporary, we see nothing that, in our opinion, can be improved upon: "The best way to keep the boy on tne farm is to get him interested in the farm work. ...

4 HORTICULTURE F. WALDEN SOME TIME since I wrote a note relative to a man at Portland, Ore., who has a dope for all pests that af flict the fruit growers. He bores a hole into the trunk of the trees and puts his "cure" in there and it does the work like a jiffy by killing all the insects, fungi and bacteria. Professor Thatcher, as I stated, tried to catch the fellow by getting him to commit himself under oath, as I now remem ber, but he was too wary for that and gave the professor a batch of abuse for his incredulity. A gentleman who signs his name A Nichaus, if I make it out correctly, writes me from Hood River, Ore., as follows: "The man who wrote that letter to Prof. Thatch er is probably the same man who vic timized a good many fruit growers in Michigan; among the victims is the experiment station at South Haven, Mich. The fellow was denounced in the papers—that is the reason why he is looking for victims out here." And this leads me to say, what I have often said before, that a...

assisted by Prof. N. O. Booth and O. M. Taylor. The various apples that are raised in New York or have been tested at the experiment station are described and illustrated by the use of colored plates. The names by which apples are known by pomolog ical authorities are given, and the va rious synonyms by which they are fre quently known in local circles. I have no work in my library nor within easy access that is so valuable to me as this work. In fact, I doubt if any work ex ists that la so thoroughly up to date as this volume of 409 pages. I have reason to remember Prof. Booth for his great kindness to me. Once he and I, while out assisting in holding farm ers' institutes, had to go to a boat a mile away over a dark and dangerous road in the night. If he had been my own son he could not have been more kind to me. This is characteristic of the man. I am very grateful for this further remembrance of me in sending me this valuable book, which, as I un derstand it, is not for sale. Orc...

6 POULTRY 11. L,. __U__ffC____U> Puget Sound for Poultry Profits. We are asked concerning the poul try industry about Pugei Sound—as to markets, profits, and the future outlook; and, also as to what can be done with $1,000 to start on. We do not know of any place in this or in any other state where more can be realized from the judicious use of $1,000 in the poultry business, than at most any of the desirable spots about Puget Sound. As to what can be done with $1,000 along this line depends largely, of course, upon the experience in the business and the adaptability of the person hav ing the $1,000. Failures in the business, as well as successes, can be noted on every hand. A bad start is generally the cause of the failures, while the successes infariably follow a modest start, pa tience and well-directed efforts, with at least a moderate supply of busi ness capacity. Good prices paid for all poultry products and the future is bright for the business. The yearly average price of...

dead the business would prosper, the farmers have gone after the scalps of the wolves. Both farmers and hunters are doing their best to ex terminate the pests and it is said some 450 coyote scalps have been turned in the past two months to the proper authorities for bounties. One of the articles intended for this issue of The Ranch arrived too late to be used, owing to the necessity of making cuts to accompany it. It refers to a movable colony poultry house, and will be published in our next issue. How many of our readers know whether or not there is a duty to pay on eggs imported into or exported from British Columbia or other sec tions of Canada? The matter was brought to our attention the other day, and upon inquiry we found that there was a duty of five cents per dozen. This is such a small matter that poul trymen sending for eggs from across the border are seldom called upon to pay the five cents on a setting, yet the law is in existence. It has often puzzled us to under stand ...

8 THE DAIRY Testing Cream is Quite Simple. Cream tests are made to determine how much butter fat there is in a giv en amount of milk. So far as butter making is concerned, all the constitu ents of milk, except the butter fat, are waste products. The quickest and most satisfactory way to determine the amount of butter fat in a speci men of cream is to burn away all the other elements present except butter fat, just as miners treat a specimen of ore with an acid that will dissolve away ail metals except gold. Sul phuric acid in sufficient quantity will burn out .he casein, sugar and other constituents of milk but will not attack the butter fat. The fact that butter fat resists the action of acids is made use of by physicians who' give melted butter to a person who has been poisoned. The butter fat forms a coating over the surface of the sto mach and thus protects the tissues from dangerous or fatal burns. The process of testing cream is as follows: First, a testing bottle, a large bas...

through the entire year with the most favored "environment" for the great est possible yield of milk and buter. Her record for the year was this, 8 880 lbs. milk. 523 lbs. butterfat, equivalent to 610 lbs. of butter. Re ceiving ordinary herd treatment she had previously reached 400 lbs. She thus vindicated her capacity to pro duce one-third more butter when re ceiving extra care and treatment. Whether it always pays to feed to the limit of a cow's capacity is an other question; it generally does, but not always. The stage of lactation, the relative price of grain and butter, and many other things must be care fully considered. A cow on June feed will give more butter with grain; but will yield little, if any, more real prof it. Evidently the dairyman needs to experiment and to think. No one's herd of cows "happens" to average 400 lbs. of butter. About Cow Test Associations. (By A. Slaughter.) My opinion of cow test associations among creamery patrons is that such associations, prope...

10 HOUSEHOLD Get Ready Now for Flowers. Do not wait till the busy season is on before you make preparation for your flower garden. Always order seeds early. If you wait till late in the season it is possible the seeds man may be out of fresh seeds and will fill orders with those not as fresh. Don't buy little driblet packages. You get but few seeds and it is too small business. One trouble with many is. they don't have enough of any kinds of flowers. The town lot may be crowded but there will be room on the farm. We know a man usual ly wants the earth, but it is no more than right for the wife to have an acre or two in the front yard, and he ought to tend it, too, to pay for his cooking and washing, and he will get off cheap at that. Be sure and plant a lot of peren nials. Some kinds will not bloom the first year. Oriental Poppies and Co lumbines do not flower till the second year. Gaillardias and Dephiniums will make quite a show the same season, so will phloxes. Caring for Hothous...

ket becoming daily expense to longer keep and the other products being perishable. It seldom pays to hold potatoes over for a spring market if a fair price can be obtained for them in the field when dug. It will never pay the farmer to hold butter, cheese or fruits, and the soner these are sold the better. It does not pay to carry over until winter forty or fifty young roosters and then sell them for less than they would have brought in July as broilers. It does not pay to keep stuffing corn into a 350-podnd hog when it will bring 4 cents a pound. It does not pay to keep milking a cow which will only make 125 pounds of butter in a year; it is time to market her any day.

A subscriber at [see, Oregon, sends in the following communication: "l am going to ask you four questions that I would like to have you answer through the columns of your valuable paper: 1. What is the remedy for a horse with callous lumps on each knee cap; they are growing and he is get ting stiff. 2. Is there any cure for a cow with big jaw or hard lump on jaw bone? If so, tell all about it. 3. Is there anything you can give a cow that is wild, but will eat salt, that shows signs of losing her calf; also for a perpetual buller? 4. Is there any way of going in a herd of cattle and telling how many, if any, have tuberculosis, without throwing each one? What are the symptoms?" Replies to these questions have been very kindly furnished The Ranch by Dr. S. B. Nelson, veterinarian at the State College of Washington, and are as follows: 1.
