prop a barn door up on a stick, drive the sparrows under, pull on the stick and smash the birds.' This does not seem to be just the information we are in need of. I do not know that I know any of the department force personally; if you do, perhaps an in quiry from you would elicit something more to the purpose. I shall hope to see your personal appeal bring out some one who can tell whether we have any occasion to cry 'wolf, wolf.'

6 SPOKANE INTERSTATE FAIR THE thirteenth annual Interstate fair of Spokane, held September 24 to October G, is now a matter for history. And it goes down in the annals of northwest fair records as being the most pronounced success in fairs ever held in this country. In its record of thirteen years running, the Interstate fair has had many obstacles to overcome on its road to success, yet from the time of its inception as an as pirant for fair honors, it has shown a constant record of achievement and success and bids fair in the very near future to occupy the position which it so well deserves—that of being one of the most complete fairs —not alone in the northwest, but west of the Mis sissippi. No fair of this character can be built up in a day or a year, but can be made permanent only by a series of annual successes, such as have at tended the efforts of the officers and trustees of this fair. Its possibilities are so manifest as to need no recounting. Spokane, by reeason of its po...

8 THE DAIRY Creamery or Dairy Butter —Which? (Fred W. Lewis.) There seems to be an idea abroad that the large creameries of the state are taking steps to get an act through the legislature making a distinction between butter made by the large public creameries and that made by private creameries on the dairy farms of the state. It is believed that the bill will be sandwiched in as an amend ment in some sly manner, so that those not particularly interested will not realize what the bill really means. If what, is feared comes to pass the butter made by the large public creameries will be labeled "Creamery Butter" and that made by the small er and private creameries shall be labeled "Dairy Butter" and will bring a lower price; and the grocers will class it but little higher than ranch butter so the smaller concerns will be up against a hard proposition to make the dairy pay. At present the public creameries will not allow the farmer as much for his output of cream as he can make from i...

Mr. McDonald covered a large part of the territory in a period a little less than two months, and has written a full report for the department. The Ranch hopes to publish a synopsis of this report in the next issue. With the completion of this tour of investigation the department of ag riculture has called upon Mr. Mc- Donald to go to Central and South America shortly. He has not received his full instructions as yet, but sur mises that the purpose of his visit to those southern countries will be a thorough investigation of conditions with the end in view of stimulating the sale of American butter down there.

A famous and excellent .'eclpe for curing meat is this: To one gallon of water add one and one-half pounds of salt, one-half pound of sugar, one half ounce of potash. This gives the ratio; in it the pickle can be increased to any quantity desired. The ingre dients named are to be boiled together until the dirt rises to the top and is skimmed off. Then turn into a ves and let it cool. When cold pour it. over the beef or pork. The meat must be well covered with the pickle and should not be put down for at least two days after killing, during which time it ought to be light ly sprinkled with saltpetre; this re moves all the surface blood, leaving the meat fresh and clean. The boil ing of the pickle is sometimes omitted, but it should be remembered that the boiling is a purifying process, throw ing off the ...

14 LIVE STOCK Fall Management of Stock. Early in the fall it becomes neces sary to take account of the stock of food on hand for the animals to be fed during the coming winter. No man can go ahead and feed recklessly even this early in the season. Many farmers feed liberally and recklessly through the fall months for the pur pose of keeping their stock growing just the same as in summer. That would be the right thing to do if they have enough food on hand to carry them through, but by the time winter arrives many of them are faced by the problem of selling stock or buying food at high prices. There is no other alternative. They have far more stock to begin with than they should have for the amount of feed on hand and then their reckless waste in feeding makes matters worse. This sort of mismanagement is often carried on in a lesser degree and ani mals are forced on the market at a loss in order to save food or the ne cessity of buying more. It is not such a difficult matter to figur...

faucet in the feeding-room through which all the water came that was used for watering and feed mixing and soaking. Take care of the horses' feet. This may be attended to in the barn,.with the right kind of tools. Don't allow the hoofs to go so long that they split or break off. See that the hogs are provided with charcoal. If the cobs are gathered and burned they will give all the hogs will need—that is, if you^are so fortunate as to secure corn on the cob. The best proof of pure breeding is fixing of type; that is the power of the parents to reproduce their own excel lencies and characteristics and when this propotency is lacking such ani mals should be immediately discarded for breeding purposes. There is a mighty good dog law in Missouri —one that can be profitably enacted in the northwest. It provides that in every case where sheep are killed or maimed by dogs the owner of the sheep may recover full damages, and the dog must be killed by its owner. There is always a demand for ...

THE RANCH BJouMAi- Of "f Hi kA|ll§|l^^ Vol. XXIII. No. 21. Principles and Practices Necessary to Success BY J. F. LITTOOY IN a communication a Snohomish rancher asks why the majority of farmers who come to this county sell out their holdings within six months or a year and leave the coun try. As reasons for leaving they aay the home merchants did not treat them fairly; that the merchants paid more for produce brought in from dis tant points than they would pay the home producers, when in lots of in stances the home grown product was the best; that tele phone tails and trolley charges were too many and too high, etc. These conditions exist everywhere nnd always will. The reason is that such farmers are too hasty or too ig norant of their business. Modern farming covers so many phases that it must be segre gated into speci alties; competition of the present day demands it. This requires that in tensive principles be applied, and for the most portion only be practiced upon a small acre...

2 the winter months. It is always warm and sweet (not sour) and gives the rows a good substitute for June grass all winter long. The roots are usually grown on low damp soil to insure a large yield and as a rule are not gathered until they are to be fed —and when harvested are wet, frosty, cold and dirty, and handled by the men who milk. The cow needs a clean warm hand and good temper, but usually gets the op posite when roots are handled. Roots are a filthy, decayed mass if not prop- tured ears and a large foliage in this erly cleaned, and require cheap labor section of Western Washington. to make them profitable for feed. Then the corn is clean enough to put on the table at any time. Corn has double the feeding value of malt, which is ; only accessable six days in the week, hauled every day, rain or shine, and j frets the man in touch with the pro- \ duct which disqualifies him for a milk er or cow man.

4 HORTICULTURE f. WALDEN These notes are prepared in my or chard in the Yaki ma valley. On ac count of the ill ness of my elder son, I am compelled to spend a few weeks on my fruit ranch superintend ing the gathering and shipping of our apple crop. My eyes are open and I am taking note of some things that will be of value to the readers of The Ranch. I am taking note of the condition of our apples, as that relates to the damage from the cod ling moth. Last spring we deter mined to test different kinds of spray material. We used arsenate of lead, arsenate of soda and Paris green. In the case of Paris green, we applied the material in the usual liquid form and also as a dust spray. We see but little difference between the liquid spray and the dust form. In a small orchard the dust spray might be very nearly as effective as the liquid form. But in a large orchard I should much prefer the liquid. The dust spray can not be effectively used when there is any wind, but the liquid can be us...

be if the ground were bare. The num ber of leguminous plants now used for green manure is I considerable one, and tli«> host for any particulnr purpose can be determined only by experiments. We know, in a general way, however, th 6 particular uses of each kind, so that under any given condition we are pretty safe in recommending a particular crop to be used. In regard to the proposition that some sort of cover crop Is needed to protect the soils from the hot sum mer sun, I believe that no legume will answer quite so well as the cowpea. Under the warm conditions existing in the Yakima and similar valleys, this crop would grow with considerable lux uriance, as It is a distinctively heat loving plant, this being used quite ex tensively in the orange regions of Cali forna. Where it is used, of course, some slight additional irrigation Is necessary. This, however, would not be perceptible, owing to the common tendency to use more water in orcrmrds than is neces sary.

The Capacity of a Canal. Many mistakes have been made in this country in locating canals by not taking Into account all the peculiar conditions under which they will have to be operated to complete their fullest mission. After determining the nature of the available water supply, we must consider the climate, the length of the growing -season, the kinds of crops grown, the average date of harvest, the number'of cuttings of hay that can be made during each season and the part of the growing season in which occurs the flood discharge of the stream the waters of which are to be used. It happens that the flood waters of the streams of most of the states and territories can be utilized for irrigation during some period of the growing sea son, generally at the beginning.

8 THE DAIRY The Dairy Conditions in Alaska. ( R. A. McDonald) Alaska is a territory with a popu lation of about 100,000 people, and has an area of 577,390 .square mileo. Until the discovery of gold in 189G Alaska was principally valuable for its fisheries, fur trade and extensive forests, but since gold was known to exist ihero in such large quantities the rush into all sections has trans formed the territory into one of grea* commercial importance. Naturally, with such a large number of people where the soil does not produce the necessities of subsistence in sufficient quantities as yet. the value of the food products imported must mount into the millions. I estimate that dur ing the year 1905 the territory re ceived $5,063,067 worth of provisions, of which $160,333.50 was paid for but ter alone. I base these figures on a careful investigation of all conditions and a look over all the records avail able during my recent trip over the territory at the request of the federal departme...
