RANCH AND RANGE Vol. 15 No. 16 HOOD'S FARM BERKSHIRES. PERFECT TYPE OF THE BERKSHIRE HOG OF TODAY —A MAGNIFICENT HERD. For the purpose of improving the common swine of the country, no other hog can be used to better advantage or with greater certainty of good results than the Berkshire. Having descend ed from so long a line of purely bred animals, he possesses in an unrivalled degree the power to stamp upon his progeny his own excellence of form and feeding capacity, as well as vigor of constitution, which includes the ability to resist the encroachments of disease. Hence he is in almost con stant use for the improvement of com mon hogs. In regard to form, a modern, well bred Berkshire in good condition is symmetrical throughout, attractive in appearance, and recognized at once as an animal of more than ordinary worth. The improved Berkshires of the present day are a well defined breed, possessing in an eminent degree definite and valuable qualities. Hon. F. D. Coburn, an eminent au...

2 POISONOUS PLANTS OF NORTH- WEST RANGES. BY DX. M. E. KNOWLES, OF MONTANA, BE FORE THE NORTHWEST WOOLGROWERS' ASSOCIATION. There are annually in Montana, and adjoining states, hundreds of domestic animals poisoned by unknown poison ous plants, or rather poisonous plants with which the stockman and agricul turist is not familiar. It is, there fore, the purpose of this bulletin to set forth in a brief manner those poison ous plants thus far known. Copious excerpts are made in this bulletin from Farmers' Bulletin 86, issued by the United States Department of Agricul ture and compiled by V. K. Chestnut, Assistant Botanist, United States De partment of Agriculture. An effort will be made to mention these plants in the order of their importance, i. c., those caxising the most serious loss an nually first, and so on down to the least important. Larkspur, of which the following technically-named varieties are found in Montana: First —Dwarf Larkspur (Delphini um tricorne), Wyoming Larkspur ...

smooth, herbaceous, milky-juiced pe rennial, two to three feet high, with a stiff erect stem, and opposite, four ranked leaves, the lower of which are thick and oblong, the upper thin, broad and heart-shaped. The flowers are greenish yellow and rather small. The three-seeded fruit is conspicuous. It is a common garden plant, sparingly introduced in wet ground in California and Texas, and in the Atlantic states from New Jersey to West Virginia and North Carolina. The fresh milky juice is exceedingly acrid and the fruit is highly purgative and poisonous. When used as a household remedy it often provokes serious trouble. Women and children are not infrequently poisoned by handling the plant and getting the juice on the face. Cattle are quite re sistent to its influence, but they are sometimes overcome. Goats will eat the plant extensively if nothing better presents itself, and it is said that their milk then possesses all the venomous properties of the plant. When applied to the skin t...

4 check by cultivating the ground or by mowing the plants down before the time of flowering. Lupinus Leucophyllus (Lupine), leafy, densely tomcutose throughout and somewhat villos, leaflet 7 to 10 ob lanceolate or cuneate oblong, the upper pepetioles about equaling the leaves the racemes sessile or nearly so, dense ly flowered, pedicles stout, petals blue, sometimes pink. This plant occurs widely throughout Montana and ad joining states, in fact so much so that in numerous localities it is cut for hay alone and extensively fed to sheep. It seems to be most poisonous after it matures, in fact in two instances com ing under my personal observation during this winter, the hay that was cut early in the season, while the plant was yet green, and the pods immature, was fed with impunity until they fed down to the lupine that was cut after it was fully matured, when the sheep commenced to die very rapidly. In one instance out of 1800, 260 died within four days, in another 700 out of 1500 i...

THE FARMERS GARDEN BY QEOBQE C. HILL BEFORE THE WISCON- SIN FABMEBS' INSTITUTE. I regret to say that in my travels about this state I have not seen very many good gardens on the farm. I have seen fine buildings, splendid land and fine stock, but when I looked for the garden it was minus. There are several reasons why there are so many failure in this direction, and one is that the farmer neglects to have one at all. Another reason is, it is not arranged in the proper shape, when he does have it, to cultivate eas ily; and still another is, it is not prop erly cultivated nor properly fertilized, and when the summer work comes on it is neglected, and before the summer is over the wife says to the husband: "You had better bring in the scythe and mow it." HOW TO MAKE THE GARDEN. I do not think it is necessary to have over a quarter of an acre, and, in fact, I think on an eighth of an acre can be grown enough of the smaller vegeta bles and of early sweet corn to supply an average family. ...

6 ONE ON THE BEN DAVIS. The digger lay painfully swaying His tail in the dusty road As he told this remarkable story To the crow and a listening toad: "I have lived in these regions for ages, Haven't counted the years as they run, But my father who lived before me Knew well Methuselah's son. I have baffled the wild red warrior, Who so oft my kindred slew With his bow and his stone-tipped arrow, Ere I knew of the pale-faced crew. But they came and were clearing our hazels, And slaying my kindred to boot; And soon they were plowing our holes up And planting to grain and to fruit. But I circled about their small clearings And dug up the sprouting grain; And when they came seeking to slay me I scud to my hole again. I laughed as I thought of tueir folly, And I said I shall never die. But, alas for that fatal apple—" And he heaved a disconsolate sigh. "Go on," said the toad, who was listening, And the crow, who was noting it down, Gave a low, half-audible chuckle, As though he were just ...

TREATING WINTER - INJURED TREES. The following letter is from the Kansas State Experiment Station, and the suggestions it contains are recom mended by Prof. J. A. Balmer, of the Washington State Experiment Station as being valuable to the orchardists of the Northwest, in districts where their fruit trees may have received injury during the past winter: Where trees are merely injured, the real damage done to the orchards will depend greatly upon the treatment given them from this time. Trees that are killed should be removed at once from the orchard. If they can be used for firewood well and good, if not, they should be piled and burned to destroy any insects or disease that may infest them. Trees that are partly top-killed are weakened and deadened through out, and should he heavily cut back, the extent depending upon the degree of injury. In many cases it will be necessary to cut back to the main branches or even to the trunk, but where the injury is less severe the cut ting may be...

THE LANGSHAN. A PROFITABLE FOWL FOR THE FARM. A prominent breeder of this popular fowl, Mr. J. W. Wale, in a recent issue of The Feather has the following fav orable things to say of his pet breed, namely: Langshans are the smallest and most active of the Asiatic class. They are practical in more senses than one, and their prolific laying and other ex cellent qualities make them profitable for the farmer and market poultryman. They constitute one of the oldest breeds of poultry and have always been held in popular esteem. The shape of the Langshan is distinct from that of the Brahma or Cochin, and should not be confused with either of the last-named breeds. Langshans have white flesh and dark legs, while the others are yellow-skinned and yel low-legged. The quality of the flesh of the Langshans is excellent, being fine grained, tender and nicely flavored. As layers they rank among the best, aver aging from 12 to 13 dozen a year, and as winter layers they are to be recom mended. The ...

IO THE TRAVELER'S NOTE BOOK. BY 1.1 i. II R. FREEMAN. But few cities in the world have a supply of purer water than that which Portland gets from the everlasting snows of Mount Hood. Portland was the second city in America to adopt the system of operating her street cars by a dispatcher at a central station us ing the telephone. And now Portland is to be one of the first cities in Ameri ca to pasteurize its milk and distribute it from a central station, free from dis ease germs and averaging a higher per centage of butter fat than if handled in the old way. Among the fine stock brought out from their Rice Lake, Wis., farm by Craig & Stevenson, was a Red Polled English bull for Mr. Draper at Colfax, Wash. He was out of a fine milker and the sire was imported. From the game farm Messrs. Metsker & Klem gard, at Colfax, received a Shorthorn bull, a half brother to Viscount Anoka, at the head of a prominent herd in In diana. The dam of the Colfax bull is Victoria of Riverside and...

PENDLETON WOOLEN MILLS. The scouring department of the Pen dleton, Or., Woolen Mills scoured in 1897 5,000,000 pounds of wool and last year 3,000,000 pounds. The cause of the falling off in quantity last year was that much of the clip is still in the warehouses holding for a higher mar ket. When the wool leaves the scouring department it is taken into the charge of William J. Welch, superintendent of the mills, who converts it into Indian blankets of many colors, beautiful lap robes and blankets. He places it in two vats of 250 pounds capacity each and there it is dyed. It passes thence to a revolving extractor, which makes 500 revolutions per minute and by cen trifugal force takes out the water. Thence it goes to a drying room, heat ed by steampipes, to remove the last remnant of moisture. Thence to a power picker to thoroughly loosen it up, and then it is dipped into an emul sion of oil, water and borax. By this process the well-known maxim that wa ter and oil will not mix is refu...

12 MARKET EEPOET. SEATTLE. Potatoes—The feature this week is the potato market. The price has jumped way up. What are the causes of this? Failure of the California crop, which caused a larger demand here both from California and Oregon. The potato crop in this state was no larger than usual last year and then this average supply was cut still lower by several hard freezes last winter. Now there is a general scarcity every where in the Pacific Northwest. East of-the-mountain potatoes are so nearly gone that they are almost out of the market. It is reported that there are no more to be purchased at Yakima. It seems to be the general opinion that these prices will be maintained and perhaps go even higher. Apples are unchanged in quotation since a week ago. They are, however, gradually becoming scarcer, though not enough yet to cause a rise in price. First class apples are in good demand and grades not so good are moving bet ter than they have been. Cabbage —There is not much cabbage on...

POULTRY POINTERS. The eating, singing, scratching flock is in right condition. Keep them there. If they are droopy, nine times out of ten it is owing to lice or deranged con dition of digestive organs. Oftimes the best remedy is merely change of dirt. Pounded charcoal, broken shells, chopped onions, green feed, raw vegetables, red pepper mixed in mash, etc., are all cheap, handy and effective restoratives. A pint of lime water to a gallon of drinking water should be occasionally given. Crude carbolic acid mixed with coal oil should be sprayed on inside of roosting coop, and the roosts thorough ly painted with the mixture once or twice a month in order to keep rid of lice mites and other pests. A lousy fowl cannot remain healthy as nest boxes afford convenient quar ters for breeding vermin, they should be kept well cleaned. Change the straw and spray them inside with car bolic acid and kerosene at least twice a month. Impure drinking water should never be tolerated about the premises...
