to be introduced unless the creameries (or cheese factories) are willing to pay their share. Indeed they might well pay it all. We do not believe that any instruct or should have more than twenty or at the very most thirty factories and, if we take the average, twenty-five, the cost per factory should not be more than $60 a year, a mere baga telle which will be counterbalanced many times not only by actual cream ery economies and increased price through improved quality, but also by the smoother relations between pa trons ruid makers. What we need is an extended co operation notably among our co-opera tive separator creameries that suffer or fear to suffer from the encroach ment of the centralizers. If they will co-operate in syndicates, even if only hiring an instructor at the start, then other lines of co-op eration will soon follow. It would be desirable if possible to so arrange the syndicates that the va- Hous creameries ship by the same road and thus make it convenient to load...

10 HOUSEHOLD Contributions for this department are invited from all the women readers of The Ranch. Subjects of interest to the rural people are especially desired. Pure Food Inspections. L. Davies, the state pure food com missioner, says that the work of his office during the past year has been directed principally to inspection of grocery stocks and the analysis of dif ferent articles of food. Much adul teration has been found, but the work has not yet been prosecuted to that point where it is possible to say just what articles are adulterated and which are not. One of the first arti cles taken up was lemon extract, and out of 38 samples analyzed only 17 came up to the standard. Honey was next analyzed and out of 20 samples all but two were found up to the stand ard. One of these samples was a pure adulteration, while another was sold und-n- the name of Pomelo. Maple syrup, catsup, shredded cocoanut, all jams and jellies and preserves are be ing investigated. Many articles of dail...

POULTRY _ H. li. BIANCHARD • Movable Colony House Plan. It will be recalled by our readers that there appeared recently in these columns an article on the movable colony house, with an illustration. The authorship of the inquiry was not known at the time, but the publi cation of the article has brought this out. The following letter was receiv ed from B. Hooson, of Pender Island, B. C, and fully explains ,itself. In this connection we wish to state The Ranch is always glad to give space to any article or discussion per tinent to the interests of farming, and welcomes Mr. Hooson's reply: "A plan and description of a chick en house of my design was published in a recent issue of your paper, ac companied by a severely unfavorable criticism. I was rather surprised to see it appear, expecting a private re ply, but the omission to append my signature, which I assure you was not intentional, fully explains that. "The severity of the criticism leads me to thinks that you expect me to come f...

1? not expect to make a fortune in a month or six weeks. ♦ * * The Washington climate is one of the best in the country for squab brooding. Back east birds have a hard time producing young during the bit tor cold spells; out here there is no such danger. My Homers were busy every month the past winter and my losses of young could not have been much less. There were not a half dozen nights during the winter when I kept the loft windows closed. * ♦ * The impression exists among some squab raisers that it is fatal to birds to feed them any green stuff. I have not found it so. My birds are given water cress and bits of lettuce occas ionally, and they never suffer from the green stuff. In fact, it is a dainty that they very much enjoy and the effect upon them is good. Do not feed too much of it but an occasional feed will be appreciated. Pigeons must have variety. * * * From now until fall it will be a good thing not to feed too much cracked corn. The warm weather is not con ducive to co...

IRRIGATION This department is open to contribu tions from any one interested in irriga tion Make your articles as brief and consise as possible and be careful to give facts and figures. Irrigation and Cultivation in California (By an Ex-Californian.) In Blalock's orchard near Walla Walla and around Yakima, as well as near Weiser and Payette, Idaho, we first saw irrigation as it is practised in these states. It differs from that of California where the writer has spent many years in horticultural pursuits under irrigation. We shall try to give a short description of the way it is done down there with some comment. Hoping that it may be of some value to the readers of The Ranch. The canal overseer sets and regu lates all headgatos, letting water out of the canal. The farmers own and regulate the branch ditches. Some time in January or February they call a ditch meeting. The most important business of this meeting is to decide how many hours each one shall be al lowed the whole or part...

14 LIVE STOCK The Wool Market. From present prospects it does not look as though the sheep-growers would make as large profits as were made last year, according to W. F. Babcock, of the H. F. Norton Co., ot Seattle. This concern is one of the largest wool buyers on the coast and handles large amounts of Puget Sound and Merino wool every year, having occasion to keep very closely in touch with the eastern market. "The wool market at the present time is in a peculiar condition," said Mr. Babcock to a representative of The Ranch. "Prices are low, and do not show any immediate prospect of advancing. We are not sending out a buyer because we do not believe that the growers will sell at present prices, and all we can do is to wait until they make inquiries from us. The wool buyers, the middlemen, are not taking chances this year, and do not intend to buy wool that they cannot dispose of in the east at some sort of a profit. Last year the wool buyers became ex cited, and paid high prices. ...

Climatic conditions are of the best. We have neither the severe winters nor the intense heat of the summers of eastern states. This is particularly true of the western section of the state. In the eastern part the summers grow very warm,, but even there dairying is growing more and more each year. The farm ers are beginning to realize that it pays to keep cows, and to conduct dairying on a business basis. The western portion is an ideal dairy sec iton. With the disappearance of the timber, our farmers are turning more and mote to dairying. The returns, wherever the industry has been con ducted in a systematic...

4 HORTICULTURE r. WALDEW I HAVE just re turned from a trip to Eugene, Oregon. I was called there to deliver the Bac calaureate Address before the Divinity School located in that thriving city. Eugene is the coun ty seat of Lane county. It is sit uated in one of the most beautiful valleys I ever saw. In fact, the whole Willamette valley, from Portland south as far as Eugene, is one of the beautiful sections of the earth. No doubt this beautiful country extends still further south, but it has never been my good fortune to visit that part of the great state of Oregon. A person riding through a country on a train cannot see its condition to the best advantage, but he can see enough to determine that it is a beautiful and prosperous country. From the imperfect sight I could get of the country I should judge that stock raising is its principal industry. To this may be added hop-raising near Salem. More and finer Jersey cattle I have never seen than I beheld as we went flying along through...

Globe for extremely late. I would much like your ideas respecting lo cality, varieties and age of trees to begin with. I have about 18 inches of good soil under which lies a layer of cobble stones and then a mixture. Your able articles in The Ranch please me fully as well as they do old fruit growers in the valley with whom I am acquainted." * * * While I wrote Mr. Simmons private ly and briefly, I give th e substance of my reply here, as it may prove of value to others: The altitude above sea level is not so important in peach growing as having our peach orchards on ground higher than some other land nearby. What we need is what fruit men call "frost drainage." This can be secured only by having lower land near by. From the description given I am not certain whether this "frost drainage" would be secured in that location or not. It would be well to consult other growers similarly situated and learn from them as to frosts at or after the blooming of peach trees. If there is a curren...

I THE DAIRY Silo Talk by a Veteran. (H. M. Robertson.) Among the conclusions I have ar rived at. after using the silo for twen ty years is. that it is always best, when finishing tn« Ailing, to leave the cen ter several feet higher than at the sides. This appears at first to leave more surface exposed, but really does not, for. in settling the contents press more firmly against the sides at the same time leveling in the center. If left level on the surface, the center settles most and .loosens from the walls, permitting air to enter and is likely to lead to loss. Have a later variety of corn to finish with or wet the silage with water as it is spread in the silo during the several last loads and fifty to seventy-five pails of water on the covering when it is put on. Wet sawdust is the best cov ering I have ever used. When the filling is piled up four feet higher in the center than at the sides, sloping to the sides, tramping firmly to make it all as solid as possible, smoothen off e...

route. The report states that the Walker Creamery company, of Siski vou county, the largest concern in that part of the state, whose creamery is located in the fine dairy district known as the Scott valley, has been sold to the Hazelwood Cream company of Portland, Oregon. A few years ago the valley had several creameries, but the Walker company has suc ceeded in securing the bulk of the business. The Hazelwood Cream company, of Portland, is centralizing the buttei business to a considerable extend in Oregon and Washington. For some time it has been receiving cream from points along the Southern Pacific rail road in California, which was shipped all the way to Portland. It has often been reported that the Hazelwood peo ple contemplated entering the cream ery field in California, and the secur ing of the Walker creamery gives it its first permanent foot-hold in the state —a kind of outpost from which it will push itself southward, no doubt, and become a competitor of the Sac ramento v...

It has been known that chemical treatment will do the work not only with dandelions but also with a variety of plants, both noxious and good. Commercial sulphuric acid is said to be a good remedy to use. Ten cents' worth of acid and a medi cine dropper will do the work on an ordinary lawn. Into the plant where it comes out of the ground inject five or six drops of the acid, if it is a small plant, or larger doses for greater sized plants. The acid will work its way down into the roots and kill it for all time. The person who gave out the in formation as above outlined says a grave caution is neces...

POULTRY ,« H. L. BLANCnABD How to Roast Geese. (Mrs. S. D. Walrath.) I presume the reader who wanted to know how to raise Reese also wants lo know how to roast one, so I may as well tell him how we roast them at our house. First kill the goose (for you would not want to roast It alive), pluck and singe it. Get a pan of warm water, put a generous supply of soap in it, take a brush and scrub the goose. The birds are no more cleanly in their habits than are hogs. Now rinse in two or three waters, draw them, wash on the inside, wipe and rub inside with half an onion, sprinkle lightly inside with salt, pep per and sage; fill with the stuffing, truss nicely and place goose on rack in dripping pan. Bake in a hot oven one and a half hours, basting with the fat in the pan. Drain off some of the fat in the pan and dredge the goose with salt, pepper and flour after each basting. Reduce the heat after goose is nicely browned. Serve with baked apple sauce. Now eat the goose—and if you have any t...
