14 LIVE STOCK Feeding Wheat to Horses. The director of the state agricul tural experiment station at Pullman has under consideration an experiment in the feeding of wheat to work horses. Feeding experiments for the past ten years have shown in the case of cattle and hogs that wheat as a feed yields the best results of any of the cereals. A chemical analy sis of wheat shows the percentage of nutritive matter very high. The world has been drifting to wheat as the great bread food for man, even the most immovable of the older nations gradually discarding rye and barley as bread foods for the cheaper and better wheat. Oats and barley have in the Pa cific northwest been the traditional and favorite feed for horses. Wheat has been used somewhat, both alone and in mixture, but there is a popular fear of founder for it and a tradition that it is too "heating" a feed. The quantity of any feed fed is so perfectly under the control of the feeder that it may well be doubted if this objec tion i...

The test was planned so dial corn meal will) chopped alfalfa hay were compared with mixtures of corn and bran and corn and shorts and with corn meal alone, Borne of the mixed rations were made up of three parrs of corn to one part of the other prod ucts, and others half and half. For ■convenience, ground corn was used with t'-.u< cut or ground alfalfa hay. and the ration was moistened with wa ter before feeding. This prevented i be feed from being blown by the wind and induced the pigs to eat up the alfalfa better than they would other wise have done. In the twelve weeks covered by the test the average daily sain per pig ranged from O.s pound with the lot fed corn Bad bran, 8.1, to 1.096 pounds wit It the lot fed corn and shorts, 3:1.

x^j3» ■■ '^jj^HMfc - 7M~nrzir^^^^^^^^^^^^^B^^"-^^MbiiJBfeit_. l . . jmji^ Sm^ . Vol. XXIII. No. 23. RECENTLY there was stimulated by the New York Produce Re view a discussion of the ques tion as to how much milk a butter maker can handle daily without a help er and still do justice to his work. Several replies were received and published, and we quote a few of them as showing the manner in which but termakers look at this question. Few creameries are so organized or sit uated that the total receipt of milk <lnily exceeds 5,000 lbs., and this often precludes the possibility of hiring a helper owing to expense. Hence the buttermaker himself has to do all the work alone. If it is to be inferred tbat the buttermaker's work is prop erly to be confined to the receiving, ing the butter, keeping the creamery and sur roundings clean, keeping the books, etc., then one man in the small creamery is all right. But such creameries will never make much of a growth, owing to the lack of agitatio...

Yes, one good thing at least, but before I tell what that one good thing Is, 1 wish to relate a little story. It is told of an old lady never speak evil of any one, but, on the contrary, would always say some thing in favor of each one. Two men were out' day talking of this trait of the old lady's when one of them of fered to bet that he could mention one person of whom the old lady could not say one good thing. The bet was taken. So matters being ar ranged, they called upon the old lady and one of the men said: "Grandma, we have a bet that you can not say one good thing of the devil; now, can you?"' She folded her hands and thought for a moment and then, look ing up with a sweet smile, said: "I think the devil has a great deal of perseverance." Just so it may be said of the promoters of the seedless ap ple. They have a great deal of per severance. This perseverance will in a good man...

using straw, or hay or coarse manure. Even weeds mown and placed arouno under the trees will answer a good purpose. Some of our leading horti culturists are advocating what they call "the mulch method" of treating their orchards. It has much to com mend it to the thoughtful considera tion of fruit growers. Where this method is followed it is best to sow clover or some other legume in the orchard and then to mow this and pile the product around the trees as far as the limbs extend. This mulch will rot in time and in this way.return to the soil the fertility used in its growth, but besides this the soil under the trees will be kept cool and moist. It will be found upon examination that the soil under the trees where the mulch has been placed is full of angle worms and no better indication of a good condition of soil can be found than this. I am satisfied the custom of keeping the surface of our soils bare and baking them in the hot sun is a bad practice. This will not be the case wher...

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 enreful to give facts and figures. The Quality of Irrigated Apples. (H. E. Van Deman.) There is a feeling in the public mind that apples and other fruits grown un der irrigation are not equal in quality to the same kinds produced where this method of supplying moisture to the soil is not necessary. I am not fully prepared to positively deny the truth of this theory, but many opportunities that I have had to compare fruits of many kinds grown under the two con ditions lead me to believe that it is the abuse of irrigation that is largely responsible for the poor quality of much of that which is not up to the standard in this respect. Again, the lack of sufficient water in the soil has the same effect, although the condition in reversed —that is, from too much water or too little. In the former case there is an over- plus of moisture i...

trivance will answer the purpose. When small numbers are kept the simplest method of supplying water is in wooden troughs. These may be built V shaped or with square bot toms. The food of the duck is such as tor require drink when eating, as It is comparatively dry and cannot be eaten hurriedly as grain is. When feeding always replenish the water troughs or fountains with pure, fresh water. The food for the duck must be bdth vegetable and animal in nature. If the birds are raised in confinement this diet must, in a measure, be imi tated to get the most satisfactory re sults. As the duck has no crop,, the food passes directly from the throat to the gizzard, and, as a consequence, the food must be in a soft, mushy state. Too much hard food, such aa grain, does not agree with these birds, and they cannot thrive on it. Some feeders use a small portion of grain, others do not, and it has not proved to be of any advantage to feed it. Soft food is their natural diet, together with grasses,...

12 HOUSEHOLD Contributions for fhls department are invited from all the women readers of The Ranch. Subjects of interest to the rural people are especially desired. An Effective Preventive for Grip. Consul-General Guenthcr. stationed at Frankfort, Germany, advises the government of an effective, treatment of oil of turpentine for influenza or grin. When influenza was epidemic throughout Europe many factory work men contracted the dfoease and died. At one factory, however, the disease did not appear. Investigation showed that oil of turpentine was used in met al working, ihe oil becoming warm and evaporating and the workmen Intoning the air laden with It, which seemed to act as a germicide. Since then oil of turpentine has been always evaporated in that factory upon a stove and not a case of influenza has ever occurred there. This preventive measure is suc cessfully employed in dwellings. Thi^ would seem to be sustained by the fact that breezes blowing from pine forests are considere...

INQUIRIES A request has been received at the office of The Ranch for a balanced ra tion for making young pigs grow. This is an important subject, and cannot t>*» Ireated with full justice to it unless considerable research is made for all data possible to find. As there does not happen to be at hand the desired data the question has been submitted to an authority on swine raising, with the request that he answer as soon as possible. It is to be hoped The Ranch will be able to give one or two bal anced rations for this subscriber in the next issue. For the fattening hog there is nothing in this state that can beat wheat for gains in weight, cost and other things considered, but for the little pig that is not fed cows' milk when old enough to have more than its mother's milk there must be com pounded a special ration. * * ♦ A reader at Stanwood writes that he is going to set out a small orchard, using apples, pears, peaches, apricots, cunants, etc., and a large number of small frui...
