HORTICULTURE (Continued from Page Five) higher as a pomologist than H. E. Van Deman. He organized and was at nit 1 head of the department of po mology at Washington, D. C, for eight years. He judged the fruit at the Pan-American fair at Buffalo and did the same thing for the Lewis and Clark Centennial fair at Portland. He was with us during the entire fair. We met him daily and learned to love him as a brother. His hearty laugh would have driven the blues from the most gloomy breast. His "friends in the northwest are legion and I know will be glad to hear from him. The horticultural editor of The Ranch has just received a good letter from Prof. Van Deman and takes pleasure in giving it to our readers. While we are not raising nuts to any great ex tent and cannot raise some of the other fruits in which he is engaged, 1 know that others will be pleased, as I was, to learn what our friend is do ing. The following is his letter: "My dear friend Walden: —The last time we met was on the s...

14 LIVE STOCK Sheep Going Into Mountains. Bheep by the thousands have been wending their way from the country about Trinidad, Quincy and Ephrata toward the Cascade mountains, where they are to be ranged during the sum mer. Last year more than 150,000 sheep were grazed in the mountains of Chelan county. O. E. Loving, a Wenatchee sheepman, states that 60, --000 head crossed at Orondo within a few days. A large number are wend ing their way over the mountains from Ellensburg on the way to the Icicle mountains Owing to the fact that more of the Washington forest re serves has been thrown open for graz ing purposes than ever before, a great er number of sheep are expected in this section this summer. Draft Horses Are Scarce. In the state of Washington today the demand for good draft horses is larger than the supply, and those who have large railroad contracts or big ditch digging projects on their hands fear they will be unable to secure the ani mals they -will need. A short time ago buy...

4 HORTICULTURE F. WALDEN L. F c r d i n a n d Floss, of Latourell Falls. Ore., makes inquiry about two apples, the Akin and the Stayman. The Akin, often called Akin's Red and Akin's Seed ling, is not a new apple by any means, but has not been widely distributed and, hence, is new to many people. The original tree was grown from seed brought from Tennessee and planted near Lawrenceville, 111., in 1831. The farm on which it originated is now owned by W. J. Akin, hence the name. It was first propagated for sale in 1868 but seems not to have received much notice till Mr. Akin exhibited it at a meeting of the Illinois State Horticul tural Society in 1890, where it was awarded first premium as a "Seedling" and as a "new variety good enough to be recommended." It has now been fruited in several states and seems destined to come into pretty general use. * * * The history of this apple is gleaned from the valuable book, "Apples of New York," by Beach, Booth and Tay lor. It does better, accor...

up instead of its being used to burn up people. • • * My friend, H. C. Atwell, of Forest Grove, Ore., writes as follows: "I would like your views expressed in The Ranch on the practicability of the marine type of gasoline engine for spraying. All the gasoline engines in use for this purpose appear to be of the stationary type and yet the marine weighs half as much for the same horse power and is advertised in the magazines at. about one-third the cost. The light weight is greatly in their favor. Why not use them?". * * * I am not a machinist, and could not answer this question, and so wrote Mr. Atwell. I want the readers of The Ranch to know that I will in no case undertake to answer what. I do not at least think I understand. I took this question to a Mr. Adair, who has charge of the business of Fairbanks, Morse & Co. in Seattle, and I know him to be an expert. His answer in substance is that these light engines can be used only where the pressure is steady as it is in boats an...

6 THE TENT CATERPILLAR (Capt .1. .1. p.iwsmi. Oregon.) From time to time I have Men In your valuable paper outcries about the worms iv the trees pesis that destroy the leaves and the fruit; articles loll lag what damage they do and then suddenly drop to the ground, but the writers have generally tailed to des cribe those worms or where they ori ginated till In your issue of May 16th, 19011. in column 3 on page 1, part of Mr. Walden'a remarks, he gives the proper name of one class of them, the "tent caterpillar." He tells how to get rid of them by spraying, but says noth ing as to Where they originate, so that those persons he calls "scared about them ' can destroy their eggs. I now offer the experience I have had with the pests. It is somewhat lengthy, but it will show what a man can do, and will do. if he has the patience and will to search out a proolem to a win ning finish. In 1868 I set out a small orchard on my farm, and worked out at my trade till January, 1871. By that summer...

< a THE DAIRY Filth and Ignorance in the Way. A creamery operator was telling about bis experience! frith tbe milk producers and among other things he said: "It may look a little hard, but it is God's truth that I tell you, when I say that the men who do the most to pre vent my making good butter and get ting a good price for it are the farmers who supply the milk. It is strange, isn't it, that the men who are most in terested in getting out of the market the most that is in it should act to gether right against that purpose? For instance, I found the other day that more than half of my patrons were keeping the night's milk in the stable over night. I have told them repeated ly of the danger of that practice, how it is sure to give the cream a stable taint and flavor, but they will persist in it. Is it ignorance or cussedness?" He was told it must be a little of both, for in most matters we have usually found that the most ignorant men would have the most cussedness. But soberly ...

the old custom of raising wheat year after year off the same land and give little attention to rotation of crops. Many are satisfied with present results and give small heed to the future. Yet agricultural experience everywhere has shown that the time will surely come, even on the richest soil, when crops will begin to deteriorate and. once begun, the process of deteriora tion is rapid. Those who have recog nized the inevitable consequences of the erroneous system of farming be fore it was too late are ready to tes tify as to the wisdom of the policy to which attention is so frequently called. Others ought to be guided by facts which are brought to their notice. The Time to Sow Bromus Inermis. (David Christen.) Brome grass is coming into great favor throughout the west and the seed is in demand. This not only makes the price high but leads to the sale of chaffy and adulterated seed. The standard weight is fourteen pounds to the bushel, and most seeds men quote prices either by the 1...

(Hoien Watts.) Good companionship is an absolute necessity to the full mental, moral and physical development of the human family. Nobody will be so bold as to claim thai the social life of the country gen erally is what it should or could be. In but low communities, comparative ly, is ii possible for the people, old or young, to get together in a social way, even occasionally. In most neighbor hoods there is absolutely no place where this natural desire can be grati fied, and the sooner this lack is rec ognized and provided for in rural com munities, the sooner the "flocking to the cities'' will cease. It is due, in nearly every case, to the dead-level monotony of the work-a-day grind and the absolute lack of the social life which sends the boy or girl out of the country home into the ma...

POULTRY _ H. L. BLANCHARD Food That Makes Eggs. Milk albumen, which is a byproduct of the milk sugar factories, was com pared with fresh meat and meat scraps at the Utah experiment station, with the results greatly favoring meat. As the albumen is very rich in protein, it appears that the trouble is owing to its lack of fat, the fatty material in the meat helping to increase egg produc tion. It has been found that lean meat, produces better results fed with corn than with wheat, indicating that the fatty material must be obtained some how and that when it is lacking in the meat it can be obtained from a grain which contains oil, like corn. Pens at the Utah station having the most fat produces most eggs. The same gen eral results were produced in two suc cessive years. Hens fed fresh meat scraps or bone gave a considerably better egg yield than those having meat meal. The results tend to sug gest that the importance of fat in food has been neglected and that much of the good effect o...

12 THE CONTROL OF POTATO BLIGHT (\v. A. Orton) The blighting of potato foliage dur ing July. August, and September In western Washington is usually due to the disease known as "late blight". 'Phis trouble, which is caused by the fungus known to botanisls as Phytoph thora infest ans De Tlary. prevails throughout the northern tier of states and especially In the great potato growing sections of Michigan, New York, Vermont and Maine, where much experience with remedial measures has been gained, which will be directly ap plicable to Washington conditions. The late blight fungus requires for its best development a moist or humid climate and a comparatively low tem perature. It is for this reason that it is widely prevalent in the regions men tioned, while it does not occur to any great extent in southern districts. Losses due to blight are often not realized by farmers. These losses are of a two-fold nature. In the first place, the crop is reduced by the pre mature destruction of the vin...

THE LAKE WASHINGTON CANAL. (Continued from Page One) countries over the seas, and innumer able manufactories and industries will spring up along the shores of these lakes which will make them verit able hives of industry. In time I predict that the tonnage which will pass through the Lake Washington canal will not be exceeded in volume by any canal in the United States. It is a matter almost too large for our comprehension, so stupendous are the opportunities offered for indus trial and commercial developement. An entirely new arena is offered for commerce, surrounded by a country whose natural resources are only be- ginning to be realized; whose indus tries are still in the infancy of their development. The markets of Puget Sound and of the industries which may spring up on these lakes comprise three-fourths of the population of the globe. Where are more ideal con ditions than here, where raw products for all kinds of manufacture are grown in the immediately surrounding coun try; w...

14 LIVE STOCK A Weil-Balanced Ration. As is well known, alfalfa, on the whole, does not fall tar short of a fair ly balanced ration. Eleven pounds of it are worth as much for feeding pur poses as ten pounds of bran, and hence for dairy animals it is incomparable; and following closely the advent of alfalfa in the central west dairying has come to be one of the most import ant industries. Neither cattle nor sheep should be pastured on alfalfa, however, as it is liable to cause bloat, although there are not a few who have safely pastured cows on it with profit. For horses and hogs it is excellent. Aside from its being a valuable pasture or soiling crop for pigs it is equally true that they will eat alfalfa hay. Experiments have shown that pigs make better growth when the dam is fed considerable al falfa than those from sows fed the best of other rations, but with no alfalfa. For brood sows it is a most valuable food, either as hay, a soiling crop, or as pasture. The litters of such so...

Don't feed calves too much skim milk, especially that returned from the creamery. Numberless calves are overfed with this by-product of the creamery. It makes them potbellied and unthrifty. More cases of calf scours may be laid to overfeeding with skim milk than to any other one source. It is the best kind of a food when given in moderation, and in con junction with grain feeds, but when a calf is fed as though it were a tank to be filled to the top, there's bound to be trouble.
