THE FIELD Improving Potato Quality and Yield. Written for The Ranch by A. G. Craig. State College, Pullman. In the last issue this subject was spoken about at some length and the farmers are urged to carry out cer tain experiments with the view of securing the most vigorous seed pota toes. The plan is given in detail in. this issue. (1) The selection in 1906^ will be made in a large field which affords abundant opportunity for choice of plants. Each plant in the field will be somewhat carefully examined, special attention being given to the vigor, freedom from blight, and habit of the plant, etc., and a few of those which appear to be distinctly superior to the general crop will be marked. (2) Before the main crop of 1906 is dug each marked hill will be dug sep arately. Each hill having five or more tubers true to type, uniform in size, form, and color, and a total weight of not less than two pounds (the potatoes having been planted 36 inches by 18 inches), will be put into a separa...

14 LIVE STOCK Diseases Affecting the Hog. Prof. R. A. Crftiff. The heavy loss from disease in hogs is largely due to transmissable dis eases. The organisms that produce this class of disease usually enter the body in the feed and inspired air. Hence, muddy or dusty yards, especi ally if overcrowded and filthy, filthy feeding floors, troughs and hog houses, are largely responsible for the prevalence of hog cholera, swine plague, etc. As young hogs are less able to resist these diseases than healthy mature animals, the necessity of using preventive measures at this season of the year is of double im portance. During the spring and summer wallow holes are formed in the yards and pastures. In case the hogs run in a large lot or pasture during the summer it is often considered un necessary to clean and disinfect the small yards and hog houses, and they become filthy and dusty. Muddy yards are especially objectionable, as they soon become filthy. If necessary, the sanitary conditions of t...

The modern hides are consequently lighter on the aver age in any case.

THE RANCH . Vol. XXIII. No. 18. Propagation of Walnuts By M. McDonald. IN THE statements previously made I have tried to show the import- ance of getting the right varieties of walnuts for the conditions and the soil in the Pacific northwest, the kind of soil best suited for their culture, and a few other points the beginner in walnut culture should know. The method of propagation is one that most vitally interests the nur serymen. Were walnut trees as easily budded or grafted as ordinary fruit trees, there would only be one an swer to this question; that would be graft, or bud, in direct line from the original, or first generation trees, thus insuring a perfect strain of the varie ty to be propagated. On account of the uncertainty of securing a stand by either grafting or budding some other means must be used to propa gate, if the number of trees desired to be planted are to be supplied. Nature usually makes some provis ion so that a variety can be contin ued or readily propagated ...

4 HORTICULTURE F. WALDCN Resuming my ob servations on soil renovation, I wish no one to infer that potash and phosphorus are not indispensable ele ments of fertility. These will be con sidered in due time. Of one thing we must be assur ed —that one of these elements of fer can not be renewed by the use of phosphorus and visa versa. Then it must not be forgotten that each ele ment of fertility has its own work to do. Nitrogen is the element of fer tility that gives vigor to the growth of trees, vegetables and grains, want to give some illustrations of tins fact. * * ♦ Some fifteen years ago Mr. P. J. Flint, of North Yakima, planted some thing like forty acres to peaches on his Parker Bottom ranch in the Yak ima valley. Mr. Flint's ranch is near mine, hence I have had a good chance to know what he has done. In put ting out his peach orchard Mr. Flint plowed up some twelve or fifteen acres of alfalfa. By dint of careful work the alfalfa was completely eradicated. That part of his peach...

any one who finds his soil lacking in vigor. • • * There is one disadvantage in grow ing any of these crops in an orchard, and that is, it will be somewhat more difficult to successfully fight the cod ling moth where there is rubbish in the orchard. Many of the larvae fail to hide under the bands and pupate under rubbish or anywhere that they can hide. If the ground is free from rubbish and is stirred frequently, the birds will catch many of them. For this reason I have been an advocate of clean culture and have practiced it in my own orchards. But I am fully convinced that this practice should not be continued. We are sowing crimson clover (trifolium incarnatum) in some of our orchards this summer. It should be sown in August and well irrigated so as to give it a start. It winters over and makes a strong growth the following spring and then dies. It is called a winter annual. We hope by working the wintered-over clover into the soil next spring—in June, perhaps—we may be able to ge...

INQUIRIES A Georgetown subscriber asks if there is any demand around Seattle for hen manure, and what is its com mercial value. This query was ans wered by letter, but it brings up a subject in connection with fertilizers about which we wish to say something. A very few years ago the United States department of agriculture gath ered statistics upon the economical value of farm manure and found it to be in the neighborhood of $200,000,000 at the time. With the greatly aug mented number of farmers in the coun try who raise livestock and poultry the value of the manure must be much greater now. The estimate is based on the number of animals and the amount of nitrogen, potash and phosporic acid excreted in the ma nure. With such an enormous value to their credit the farm produced manures assume an economic import ance not appreciated by the average farmer. * * * The owner of livestock should know that in the manure he has a most valu- IVAII MR.

8 THE DAIRY Diseased Udder—Or Probably Garget. One of our subscribers at Nahcottn, Wash., writes that he has a young row that has had two calves and is now in calf a third time. She has been giving bloody milk ever since she was served, the trouble showing itself at odd times. A few days ago a # string of bloody matter came out of one teat, which had to be pulled out with the finger. This one teat only is affected. The description is not so full as it should be. but we believe the cow is affected with garget. The question has been submitted to our veterinarian, and he will probably have something to say in our next issue. Since the question has been brought up we are glad to give some information about bloody milk or garget for the benefit of many other readers. No one will deny that many of our best milkers receive blows on the ud der with stones or clubs in the hands of an angry milker, or perhaps the blows are delivered with the feet. It has many a time happened that fine cows ha...

milk care is simple, and can be put on a page of note paper. "Feed plenty of commonly accepted feeds. Keep cows clean, stable white washed, air free from dust. Use care in milking, strain through sterilized cheesecloth, put into clean receptacles, cool at once to 40 degrees. This rule will suit milkmen, cheesemen, butter men or women either. Where milk is manufactured the following day into butter or cheese if cooled at once to 55 degrees, no trouble will follow. On the other hand, if bacteria get in through the usual stable contamina tion or foul pails, cans or strainers, and high temperatures follow, there will be plenty of animal odor or heat, and pushing air through it won't save it." Why So Much Poor Butter? The question is often asked: "Why is there so much poor butter?" Per haps the country -storekeepers are more to blame than anyone else be cause of their habit of trading mer chandise for butter, and allowing the same price whether it's good or poor. The remark is often made...

you have been longing for for several years. The best way to make the poultry department pay on the farm is to have the right kind or breed of fowls. I would advise every farmer to keep one breed of poultry pure, for they give better results than the mixed breed. There is no fowl so deserving of the farmer's attention as is the White Plymouth Rock. They are large, hardy and beautiful birds, always bringing on the market about a cent more on the pound than other chickens. The young male birds weigh from eight to nine pounds, while the young pullets weigh from six and one-half to seven pounds, the old hen often reaching eleven pounds. As egg producers there is no fowl to compare with them, the pullets often laying at four and one half months of age. As winter layers they excel any other bird and if there is a time we want the eggs it is dur ing the winter months when the price is the best. The White Plymouth Rock has proven itself the most valu able fowl bred, it being the only breed ...

A housekeeper devised the following program for the week and says she finds it greatly lightens her work. Experience taught her that a little more in the middle and less at the beginning and end of the week accomplishes better results at less expediture of nervous strength. Instead of washing, she devotes Mon day to straightening Sunday's disor der, also doing such mending and al tering as may be necessary before laundering.

THE INSTITUTE This department is for the dissemina tion of information relating to organized bodies of farmers. The editor assumes no responsibility for statements made by contributors. The Grange as the Farmer's Hope. (Fred W. Lewis. District Deputy) In years gone by the farmer was con sidered an independent person, and even so he was to a great degree. He raised his own flour, for by taking a sack of wheat to the neighboring grist mill he could get it ground into flour. He made his own sugar, for by tapping his maple trees he obtained sap which, boiled down, furnished him with the required sugar. When he wanted to build he went to the woods and cut a few trees, loaded them onto his bob-sleigh or his heavy wagon and took them to the nearby sawmill and there they were converted into such lumber as he desired. His clothes for the season were derived from the wool which he sheared from the sheep that roamed over his wood-lot and from the field of flax which he sowed and har vested. Hi...

14 LIVE STOCK Dipping When Starting a Flock. In advocating that the farmer of the northwest should go into the sheep industry it is not meant that the be ginner in sheep husbandry should stock his farm with pure bred sheep. This may be wise and proper, and it may not. The pure bred sheep are no where in large supply in our land, necessarily their cost is high and the importation of a flock for business purposes is out of the question. It will therefore be necessary to begin with whatever class of ewes may be found most available, choosing rams of some pure breed and adding also a few pure bred ewes of the same breed. Thus there will be formed the nucleus of a new flock of pure bred sheep which with good management rapidly increases until in time the grades may be discarded, but in the meantime the grade flock will necessarily serve as the business end of the sheep farm. Where to get the ewes for the foun dation of the flock is often a question, but a little inquiry and investigation...
