to prevent it or to restore the trees that have begun to decline. Thus it can be seen that Mr. Chenaur has opened a large question, or perhaps we might say a number of questions. I told Mr. Chenaur that I thought this decline was not "so much owing to the variety as the condition of the soil where his Spitzenbergs happen to be growing. * • * Of course we all know that there is much difference in the vigor of dif ferent varieties of apple trees. But there is no reason why a Spitzenberg tree that has been planted a dozen years should be on the decline if the soil conditions are what they ought to be. So we must consider what are the conditions of soil necessary to the vigorous growth of any kind of apple tree and then find out what is lacking if there is decline, whether it can be restored and how. So the whole ques tion of soil fertility must be dis cussed. That will be taken up in this department and thoroughly threshed out. I have been getting ready for this for several months. It ...

6 IRRIGATION This department is open to contribu tions from any one interested in irriga tion. Make your articles as brief and jonsise as possible and be careful to five facts and figures. The Tieton Project Is Assured. There is no longer any doubt that the Tieton irrigation project, affecting some 24.(t00 acres of fine lands in the Yakima valley, will be carried out to a successful finish by the federal au thorities. After months of prelimi nary work, such as examining the lands that would come under the canal, studying the topography of the country and making careful surveys thereof, and a host of other details, the board of consulting engineers made a favorable report, and this re port has been accepted by the de partment of the interior. It is ex pected that bids for the work of building the new canal will be asked for during the present month. The areo of 24,000 acres of land to be treated is to be known as the Tie ton sub-project. The lands to be watered are among the richest ...

8 THE DAIRY Ensilage for Cows in Summer. (Fred O. Sibley) I think that every practical, as well as scientific dairyman will agree with me when I say that it is more difficult to keep up the flow of milk from the middle of July to the middle of Sep tember than at any time of the year. The best pastures frequently dry up by the first of July and if some soil ing crop is not at hand to supplement this deficiency the milk flow will quickly decrease. Ordinarily a cow giving twenty pounds of like a day needs to devour some seventy-five pounds of pasture grass or green for age, which amount the generality of pastures will supply during the early part of the season, but seldom so as the middle of June or first of July. If no green forage is then available to compensate for this deficiency, the milk flow must of necessity diminish. Flies at about the same time begin to get in their deadly work and milch cows want the best care that can pos sibly be given them. A kind, sympa thetic, thoughtfu...

why not feed the special-purpose cow that will yield $80 worth? Instead of a dual-purpose cow to raise a steer which, at two years old, will bring $40, why not keep a special-purpose cow, that will raise a special-purpose dairy heifer that at two years old will produce a calf, convert her food into milk, and herself command as high price upon the market as the steer at the same age? "It is certainly impossible for a cow to be two things—a first-class beef ani mal and a most profitable dairy cow, because the functions are widely dif ferent, and the -characteristics con tinually at war with each other." The cows should be protected from the torture of flies by the use of some good spray, and kept in out of the sun during the hottest part of the day. Keep the calves away from the tor ture of flies. Remember that the fu ture prosperity of the dairy is depend ent upon these calves. Praise your wife for the good work she does in the line of butter-making. She will price it more than she w...

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. Hot Weather Diets. During August, neither meat noi starchy and fatty foods should be eat en to any extent, says the Farm Jour nal. Succulent vegetables and fresh, ripe, uncooked fruits ought to make most of the bill-of-fare. Vegetable soup is nourishing and, in a measure, takes the place of meat. Peas, beans, corn, optatoes, etc.. are al lsuitable for mak ing it. Boil the vegetables in just enough water to cover them. When done, add some fresh milk to this wa ter. It may be thickened either with some of the vegetables mashed through a colander or sieve, or with two table spoonfuls each of butter and flour rubbed together; or will be even more nourishing if, in addition, the yolk of an egg is stirred in, just as the soup is taken from the fire. If meats are used, chicken fricaseed or roasted, broiled lamb chops, or a very...

POULTRY ■ — H. 1,. 111. \N( II \ HI) ——-— Poultry at Seattle's Coming Exposition Seattle is to have an Alaska-Yukon- Pacific exposition in 1909 and. if we may judge from the manner in which those in charge are handling the af lair, this exposition will outrival any other exposition of a like character ever held in the united States. Not alone was the Lewis and Clark expo sition of 1905 a success from the qual ity of exhibits but it was the only fair which ever closed its doors a financial success. The Alaska-Yuivon-Pacific ex position will be the second. In connection with the Seattle expo sition preparations are rapidly taking form to hold one of the largest live stock and poultry exhibits ever shown, not alone on the Pacific coast but, let us hope, the largest ever shown in the country. And in this respect it is io be hoped that the committee in charge will profit by the experience of simi lar committee at the Lewis and Clark fair. In Portland last year, owing to an inadequate rea...

12 small it is best to feed the cake dry, but as they grow older softening the cake with milk will not harm them but rather be a benefit. Prepared chick feed seems to meet all the requirements of the chick for the first two or three weeks, but our experience teaches us that after this? time other foods should be added and a better growth obtained. This at first seemed strange, as so many grains and seeds are used in the composition of the chick feed, but whole wheat and corn cake once each per day with other feed of chick food made thriftier chicks. Not but that the chicks were seemingly perfectly healthy when the chick feed was fed exclusively, but they grew much more slowly and did not feather well. There is one thing about prepared chick food which, though, at first ap pears to be a loss, is in the end of great benefit to the chicks. We refer to the quantity of grit it contains. All chick food that we have used con tained more grit than was consumed by the chicks if the feed were...

THE FIELD Beware of the Hessian Fly. Prof. A. L. Melander, of the State College, sounds a note of warning to the grain growers in the following communication to The Ranch: "The Hessian fly, the main wheat pest, has made its appearance 1n Clarke county, Washington, where it has been present, although unsuspect eci, lor two years at least. This in sect annually causes a loss of $100, --000,000 to the wheat growers of the middle states. Its advent, therefore, within the state boundaries must be a matter of grave apprehension to the Washington farmer. If the pest be allowed to go unchecked, sooner or later the Columbia river with its rail roads will serve to introduce it into the extensive wheat lands of the in land country. "It is possible that prompt measures will avail in stamping out the insect. At the present time it is living as a small brown maggot, resembling flax seeds, in the lower joints of the stalk. If the infested fields be closely mow ed, and after drying a day or two, be...

14 LIVE STOCK Larger Hog Pastures. While traveling through the coun try one will observe that most of the pig pastures are not pastures but sim ply runs. This means that the pigs get a little grass or clover while it is at its best early in the spring, and go without the rest of the season. It also means that before fall it will bo rooted over and over again. Give the> pigs a good big pasture where they will have more range and all the clo ver they will eat and some to spare, and they will not root themselves poor if they are otherwise well cared for Clover is very much cheaper than grain. Then why not give them all they will eat? Fattening hogs will make the same gain on twenty-flve per cent less grain where they have ac cess to good clover pasture. What we need is more hog pastures and less hog pens, or, what is more to the point, mudholes inclosed with a fence. Feeding the Live Stock. In feeding live stock, all animals should have as much as they will eat up clean and never en...

Ed it was clearly shown that this means of restoring the lost nitrogen could not always be depended on. Be sides, there is a cheaper and better way—and that is by growing legumes in our orchards. What is a legume? It is a plant bearing its seeds in a pod, or it might better be said that all pod-bearing plants are legumes. Clovers, peas, beans and vetches are the legumes that we want to consider, for, while some trees, shrubs and plants belong to the legumes, besides the ones named above, they can not be used in renovating our orchards. The advantage in using the legumes men tioned grows out of the fact that these plants have the power of taking nitro gen from the air and storing it up in their roots. This is a broad state ment and needs some qualification. Without the presence of some minute organisms in the soil these plants can not gather nitrogen from the air. There must be present certain kinds of bacteria to do the work for the plants in order that this gathering of nitrogen ma...

Big Ditch Scheme by Hazelwood. Most of the people in the northwest have heard of the Hazelwood farm, which is located near Spokane, and upon which are raised some of the finest Jersey cows in this part of the country. The dairy industry is the leading specialty of this farm, and ex pansion is constantly going on here. The farm raises its own forage and maintains a herd of pure blood cattle, whose progeny is scattered through the whole northwest. David Brown is one of the chief stockholders in the enterprise, and John L. Smith is the manager of the farm. Recently the owners decided to increase their hold ings of land by the purchase of some 2,000 acres additional of land adjoin ing the original farm. They did this in order to have an acreage sufficient to warrant the putting in of an im mense ditch...

Nitrogen and Phosphorus in the Soil. (Prof. C. G. Hopkins.) Did it ever occur to you that the popular teaching of the present day is filled to overflowing with the tremen dous importance of nitrogen? The in oculation of legume crops with the proper nitrogen fixing bacteria and the abundant use of such crops in rotation is commonly considered as a cure for all soil evils, and nothing is more prominent in the popular mind today then that soils become poor first of all because they become deficient in nitrogen and organic mat ter. It is an established and demonstrat ed fact that not only the ordinary soil of the corn belt, but also the so-called worn out prairie soil of certain other sections, are not limited to their present yields because of insufficient nitrogen or organic matter as such.

8 THE DAIRY About Paulhamus' Model Dairy. The fame of W. H. Paulhamus and his fine dairy at Sumner is growing constantly. It is evident, however, that few people, comparatively speak ing, know that practically all the pur est milk that roaches Seattle con sumers comes from Mr. Paulhamus' herd. A very good description of the work being carried on here is given in the current, number of Orchard and Farm, published at San Francisco, and we take the liberty of reproducing it, as it is of such interest locally: This is the day and age of better milk. When the consumer of milk realizes that a large per cent of the deaths are caused by milk supply, and more than 50 per cent of infant feeding, we can realize the necessity of very much better conditions at the farms. All readers of Orchard and Farm have undoubtedly visited dairy barns in which the cows were not only un clean, but the barns were dark, foul •smelling and very unsanitary, and the milkers themselves were very untidy. Of course i...
