RANCH AND RANGE Vol. 4 No. 52 GERTIE OF GLYNLLYN 74474. Mr. C. A. Sweet, proprietor of the Marigold herd, of Buffalo, New York, to add glory to fame, has captured the world's Jersey milking champion ship for a year, through his cow, Ger tie of Glynllyn 74474, which we illus trate on this page. She has just com pleted her year's record with the as tonishing yield of 16,780 lbs. 3 oz., ending January 6th, 1899 —a remark able record, a grand good work for the Jersey cause. Nor is this all. With that carefulness and thoroughness that marks all Mr. Sweet's management of his herd, 53 Babcock tests were made through the year, at intervals of one week, the average butter fat of which was 4.728, which, computed as it was at the world's fair, would make 991.7 lbs. of butter in 365 days, of 80 per cent fat. Truly this is a wonderful record, and one of which every Jersey breeder ought to be proud. It is an other living evidence of the almost in credible capacity of the Jersey cow, not only in m...

2 EASTERN WASHINGTON FOR- AGE PLANTS. A glance at the map of Eastern Washington shows us that it is divided into three distinct sections regarding elevation and latitude viz: 1. The river bottoms and valleys such as the Yakima, Kittitas and Walla Walla valleys, where irrigation is pos sible. 2. The uplands such as the Big Ben 2. The uplands, such as the Big Bend and Palouse countries where irri gation is not possible. 3. The Okanogan and Colville re gions which is covered more or less with heavy timber, with here and there small fertile valleys. Besides the min ing industry, the raising of Dairy and Beef cattle is carried on here The valley afford abundance of hay and pas ture, the principal crops being hay of timothy, red top and native grasses. The division I have mentioned is the one usually made, but I wish to make another division based on the annual rainfall. Eastern Washington occupies part of what is known as the Rocky Mountain plateau and with the Panhandle of Idaho occupie...

IMPORTANCE OF DETAILS. All have heard that if we "take care of the pennies, the pounds will take care of themselves," that " the tallest buildings are built by placing one small brick on top of the other from foundation to parapet;" that "little drops of wate, little grains of sand, make the mighty ocean, and the pleas ant land." If the architect neglects the minutest detail in his plans, the defect must remedied, often at consid erable cost. A wealthy business man once said that if there was any one thing to which, more than to others, he could attribute his success in business, it was that he made it a point never to neglect even the smallest detail in his business. The experience of the world proves the sagacity of this course. Some people content themeslves with planning, and consider great concep tiions incompatible with careful atten tion to the small matters of which these plans are composed. Such per sons often go up like the rocket, all sparks and glitter and sound; and com...

4 STARTERS FOR SOURING CREAM Editor Ranch and Range: Some of your subscribers have requested me to say something about the use of start ers in making butter on the farm. In the first place, the souring of cream is caused by the conversion of milk sugar into lactic acid, this change being brought about by bacteria. Something like 100 different kinds of bacteria have been found that, when growing in milk, convert the milk sugar into lac tic acid. There are several kinds that do this without developing any bad taste or order in the milk or cream, while a few kinds actually develop agreeable flavor and odor. The latter class are the dairyman's friends. It happens that the one kind which is most at home in milk belongs to this class. When care is used to keep filth of all kinds out of milk, there is not much danger of getting undesirable bacteria in, though occasionally they do get in with the best of care. Now, when a farmer finds that his butter has a good flavor, he does not need to b...

A PROSPEROUS CREAMERY. At the recent fourth annual meeting of the Eden Bank Creamery, Chilli wack, B. C, the president reported that during the past year the creamery had received 1,421,149 pounds of milk and 66,952 pounds of cream, testing 71,998 pounds of butter fat, from which had been made 81,212 pounds butter. The butter sold for an average price of 24.66 cents per pound against 24.13 cents per pound realized in 1897. The manufacturing charges averaged for the year 1.90 cents per pound butter fat, against 2.75 cents per pound charged during the previous year. The trading account shows a net profit of $874.76, a result to be consid ered very satisfactory, especially be cause, although the output of the creamery had largely increased, the wages had been reduced by $75. The pleasing result of the trading for the year 1898 leads the company to expect an increase for the present one and to be in a position to satisfactorily conduct the business, they were of opinion that additions t...

6 PRESENT STATE OF PRUNE IN DUSTRY IN WASHINGTON. ADDRESS DELIVERED BY PROF. J. A. BAL MER, HORTICULTURIST, WASHINGTON AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE AND SCHOOL OF SCIENCE, PULL MAN, WASH. AT NORTHWEST FRUITGROWERS' CONVEN VENTION. There are planted in the State at the present time, in round numbers, about 25,000 acres of prunes. Of this number about 20,000 acres are planted to Italian, 4,000 acres to French, and 1,000 acres to silver and other variet ies. A little over one half of the acre age is in bearing. It may be well at this juncture to stop and ask, —whither are we drift ing? Does prune growing pay? Have we planted the right varieties, and in the right proportion? These are all live topics for this meeting to discuss. It is difficult to account for the wide popularity of the Italian prune in the Northwest. Is it because of its great productiveness? We think not. Is it ►.ecause it is more profitable than other varieties we grow; or is it more suit able? We must say no to all of the que...

somewhat long and warm growing sea son. It is the lament of our Clark Co. growers that the season is about two weeks too short for the proper de velopment of the Italian. We have need of a prune which will ripen at least a month earlier than any variety we now grow. It is admitted on all hands, that to make a good prune the fruit ougut to be thoroughly ripened on the tree, and this ought to take place before fall rains and cold nights overtake them. Fall rains crack the fruit, and under such conditions it rap idly deteriorates the flavor. It is im portant too to have warm dry weather while the fruit is being evaporated, on such a day prunes will dry much faster than on a damp muggy day. DRYERS. Dryers, as evaporators are called, are of two kinds, viz. hot air and steam. In point of cost the latter is the more expensive to fit up, but will be found more profitable in the end. Good prunes have been made on all kinds of dryers, just as good prunes have been turned out of cheap and simp...

THOEOUGHBEED POJLIKY. DOES IT PAY? Most assuredly it does. No live, pro gressive farmer or stock raiser is con tent to raise scrub stock of either horses, cattle or hogs; he argues that thoroughbreds fatten better, grow quicker, and make better returns for the money invested than scrub stock. The same argument is equally applica ble to poultry. Pure bred poultry de velops quicker, fattens faster and weighs heavier, and presents a better appearance on the market, whether sold as live or dressed poultry, hence will demand a better price. Another point of profit to the owner of pure bred poultry is that he can usually sell his roosters at a price far above the market price to those of his neighbors who wish to improve iheir flocks, and eggs in hatching season may ba sold at an advance on the market price. While the cost of keeping and raising thor oughbreds is no more than the mon grels, the profits are all in favor of the thoroughbreds. If there were no prof its, the pleasure one deri...

half are pure bred Spanish Merinos. He had on exhibit at the Pacific North west Wool Growers' Association a number of his noted Ramboulett rams, one of them being Dewey, jr., weigh ing 265 pounds. This ram took the first premium at the California State Fair. George Young, of Ridgeway, 60 miles south of The Dalles, makes an excel lent president of the Wool Growers As sociation of the state of Oregon. He has 7000 pure bred Merino ewes, to which he breeds the finest Shrop bucks. As a result of intelligent breeding, he sold his lambs last year for 40 to 50 cents more per head than his neighbors received for theirs.

14 TESTING GRASS SEEDS. A. J. Pieters, in charge of pure seed investigations, Division of Botany of the United States Department of Agri culture, Washington, D. C, writes in the Oregon Agriculturist: We have read with interest the arti cles in the agricultural papers of the northwest in regard to bromus inermis and its possibilities as a forage plant in that section. We would call your attention to the fact that the seed of this grass is be ing adulterated with seeds of meadow frescue, as high as 25 per cent having been found in samples sent to us to test. Bromus inermis should show a purity of 90 per cent at least, and a great many of the samples we have tested in the past have shown a purity of 95 per cent. The principal impurities in good samples should be chaff and brpakage, as the seed as usually grown is prac tically free from the seeds of other plants.

A Ti*idnlp of Anniv/'iAl wftti COMBINED Churn and Butter-Worker would have been just as use less and out of place in the dairy of thirty years ago as a man-of-war in a mill pond. The Disbrow is a natural development based upon the needs of the mod ern creamery. Everyone conversant with the butter-making industry for the past few years can readily trace the "signs of the times" that presaged the combined machine. Nevertheless, when it came few had the courage of their convictions and believed it would prove a success. The Disbrow claims to be the original combined machine, anu the claim is not disputed. It has passed the experimental stage. Its invention marks a distinct epoch in the progress of the science of butter-making. They churn cream. They work butter. They do not pack it in tubs.
