THE RANCH . Vol. XXIII. No. 14. Eradicating Noxious Weeds A Few Suggestions Made by Capt. J. J. Dawson After Reading' Our Article on Dandelions IN the issue of June 15, on page 10. I noticed an article headed "Kill ing Dandelions on Lawns." The writer of that article says that how to get rid of this plant has wrinkled more than one forehead. He would line to make us believe we are all shallow pated. Then he goes on to tell about the using of a very danger ous cure he has for it, namely, sul phuric acid, and how to use it. He is honest enough to tell how to use it, wno should use it, and the amount of care to be had in the handling of it, and a large amount of caution is given because it is of a poisonous na ture. But, with all his amount of caution, there is a chemical process of which he does not appear to be in possession, in the use of that acid —a principle, which will and does act immediately, created when the acid comes in contact with the root, no matter if a dandelion or a t...

Don't be afraid of con tradicting what I h^.ve said. Give the facts in the case and if I am wrong I shall be only too glad to make the correction.

cherry trees. It is much easier to tell what they are than to tell how to control them. It must be remember ed that the aphides (plural of aphis) are sucking insects and not biting insects. They will, therefore, not eat any poison placed on the leaves for them. They do not eat anything; they merely suck the juice from the leaves by pushing their probosis down through the outer coating of the leaves and suck out the juice or sap. Now the eating or biting insects, such as caterpillars and canker worms, can be killed by putting some kind of poi son where they will eat it. , But such remedies will do no good in fighting these aphides. The only successful way to fight them is to spray with some sticky substance that will close up their breathing pores. They have no lungs but breathe through little holes along the sides of their bodies. Take whale oil soap and make a so lution with one pound of soap to sev en gallons of water and spray them thoroughly and they will die in a jiffy. * ♦ • K...

Irrigation in California. Southern California is said to lead the United States in diversity of meth ods of application, in scientific dis tribution and conservation, and in the extensive character and boldness of design of its irrigation works. Sur face water, water from artesian wells, water from tunnels penetrating the mountains, and water impounded in large and costly reservoirs are alike utilized. The irrigation systems of this part of the state are known all over the world, and have created a prosperous commonwealth in a region which would be a scene of utter desolation without them. Concrete examples of intensive farming with this climate and soil are such charming settle ments as Riverside and Redlands, whose praises are sung everywhere. i\orth of this section, and from an ir rigation sta...

8 THE DAIRY What Does Your Butter Cost? How many of all the great hosts of creamery patrons In this country do yon suppose ever Ehced this question squarely and fairly? asks Hoard's Dairyman. Would they buy anything in the world without finding out what ii costs? Do we realize that as farm ers we must buy every pound of but ter our cows produce? That, is true. The farmer is a merchant, in the sense that he buys the butter from the cow, paying her what it costs in feed and labor. How many do you suppose really have settled down to the con viction that the kind of a cow we use governs the cost very largely. You can judge of the number who believe that, by looking at their cows as you drive through any dairy section. Yet it is the cow more than the feed that makes the difference in cost. The Dairyman has been declaring that fact all these years, yet it has made bur few believe it of all the great number who keep cows and make scarcely any profit—many times a dead loss —from them.

PRESERVATION EXPERIMENTS. In a report by the Italian minister of agricult |re on the subject of refrige rating in Italy, Mancini gives some interesting results obtained by the Craveri process for preserving meat, says the Scientific American. This is a process which was much discussed some months ago, but of which a more definite idea can now be formed, since a series of experiments has been con ducted under the direction of a number of university professors. The Craveri method would seem to have solved the problem hitherto un solved —of preserving meat in a form fit to be eaten, by means of chemical treatment. Excluding for hygienic rea sons ordinary antiseptics, and recog nizing as insufficient for practical pur poses the usual method of salting, Cre veri resorts to injections into the veins of slaughtered animals, from which the blood has been drained, of a solu tion of 100 parts of water, 25 of kitchen salt, and 4 of acetic acid; in other words, of a solution of a mixture of sub...

10 HOUSEHOLD Contributions for this department are invited from all the women readers of The Ranch. Subjects of interest to the rural peoplo are especially desired. If You Have an Oil Lamp. The housewife who uses oil lamps has now a chance to learn some tricks of the trade. The testimony at the interstate commerce commission's hearing of the charges against til* Standard Oil Company has revealed among other things, how poor oil can be made to burn well and how good oil can be made to burn poorly by "fixing" the lamp. The tricks that the Standard Oil people used to the injury of its competitors will be criti cally studied by the housewife, be cause they will give her information that she can use to profit in her own business. The wick, to begin with, should hang straight down in the oil. Then the oil will pass up more freely to the flame, and a better light will be ob tained. The wick should be cut with as thin an edge as possible. If it has a broad burning surface at the top the fla...

POULTRY . H. L. BLANCHARD ———— Preparing Fowls for the Trade. The Storrs (Conn.) agricultural ex periment station has issued a bulletin on marketing poultry and it contains the following on drawn poultry: As stated elsewhere, practically all dressed poultry should be shipped to market undrawn. Most commission men and dealers prefer to handle un drawn stock, claiming that it keeps much better. The basis for this claim lc that the incision in a drawn fowl readily admits molds and germs of different kinds into the body, where they find ideal conditions for rapid multiplication. The cavity is dark, damp, and not easily accessible, and frequently a drawn bird which out wardly appears all right is really unfit for food. As it requires consider able time to draw the birds contained in an ordinary shipment, and there is a decided loss in weight as well, stock should be shipped undrawn whenever the market will accept it. When birds are to be drawn, the operation should be performed im mediat...

12 market for roasters until late fall and early winter. Then there is a glut of them, and prices go down. If held over uncaponized they would be mar ketable only as old cocks, and there would be no gain, and might be a loss, in holding them. In both circum stances mentioned the profit of capon izing and holding over the stock de pends in part upon the fact that the practice is not general. There are some quite extensive districts now where caponizing is practiced, and the result is that where ten or twelve years ago capons were rare, and brought high prices, the prices now adays are not so much above the prices of other classes of poultry. Warm Quarters and Winter Eggs. Almost every poultry keeper knows that any sudden cold snap puts a stop to the hens laying pretty geenerally all over the country, but comparatively few of them make use of this knowl edge to aid them in getting eggs in the winter time. Now if the hens are properly protected when the cold spell is setting in, they c...

THE INSTITUTE This department is for the dissemina tion of information relating to organized bodies of farmers. The editor assvimes no responsibility for statements made by contributors. National Grange Objects to Subsidy. The ship subsidy bill, which has been before congress for some time, is strenuously objected to by the mem bers of the National Grange, and at all meetings the subject is discussed and protests forwarded to the mem bers of congress. The Grange says the present bill differs from its prede cessors only in that its promoters have tried to cover up the words "subsidy" and "bounty" by substituting there for the word "subvention." "A sub sidy by any other name would smell as rank," is the statement of members of the Grange. "The language of the bill is obscure, perhaps intentionally so, but it ia clear that under it there would be taken during the next ten years from the money raised by tax ing the people about $50,000,000, which would be given to a small number of pers...

14 LIVE STOCK Stomach Worms in Sheep. (R. A. Craig.) It is during the rammer months that loss from the twisted stomach worm of sheep occurs, and flock owners should early endeavor to prevent their flocks from becoming diseased. Healthy adult animals seldom become affected with this disease, and the greater part of the loss occurs among young and weak animals. However, if the condi tions are favorable for the sheep to become infested with this parasite the death rate amQng the mature ani mals is also heavy. This disease is not as difficult to treat successfully as is generally be lieved. The preventive treatment is very important. It is based on keep ing the sheep in a healthy, vigorous condition, and among surroundings un favorable for the entrance of the eggs or larvae of the parasite into the di gestive tract with the feed. Drinking surface water and permanent pas tures, especially if pastured close, are favorable for the production of the disease. The preventive measures that are...

put a horse in good condition, while the touch of another may be poison to him. But kindness, feed and thought ful care will work wonders. Water in the Pasture. Few farms are provided with an abundance of good, fresh water in the pasture fields. Water may be obtain ed on most farms without going into very heavy expense. Cows and all other kinds of stock require a great deal of water and they should have it as fresh and pure as possible. Where water may be obtained at a reasonable depth it is economy to sink a well as near as possible to the cor ners of four fields. A zig-zag fence and a long trough may be so arranged that part of the trough may be reached from each pasture, or a short pipe un derground may be used. Windmills are cheaper for pumping than any oth er power. A small mill will keep the trough full most of the time. The few days when it is necessary to pump by hand are just about sufficient to give a man a correct idea of the value of the mill, and he also can get a good ...

Commercial Fertilizers IN A recent bulletin of the New Hampshire Station, F. W. Morse thus briefly sets forth certain im portant facts which should always be clearly kept in mind in using fertil izers: It. should always be borne in mind that the success of a crop depends on four other conditions besides that of the fertilizer used to feed it. All farm crops require certain average amounts of heat, light, air, and water in order to develop an average growth, and just the right amount of each for the largest possible yield. Thus weather conditions may favor or hinder a crop to such an extent that the fertilizer has apparently no effect, and these facts have led more than one to the conclusion that fertilizers were useless. ♦ * * * Fertilizers can not make good a lack of sunshine or rain, but they can help the sunshine and...

4 HORTICULTURE ■*. WALDEN —— A friend, writing from Richmond Beach, asks The Ranch to tell how to make cider vine gar and also to give a cheap meth od of evaporating prunes. In answer to the first inquiry I would say that I wrote up for these columns the process of making home made cider vinegar some two years ago. We are not unmindful of the fact that we have very many new sub scribers and for this reason it becomes necessary to answer the same ques tions again and again. * * * In making cider vinegar on the farm a few simple things must be kept in mind. If the vinegar is intended for the market we must remember that our pure food laws require commercial vinegar to be of a certain strength. In Washington there is no standard of strength established by law. That is done by the pure food commissioner. When Mr. McDonald filled that posit ion he made a ruling that such vinegar should contain three and one-half per cent of acetic acid. I talked with him about this matter just before he ...
