RANCH AND RANGE Vol. IS No. 17 PUYALLUP STATION OPENS. The State Experiment Station at Puyallup, which was closed two years ago, because of the failure of an appro priation by the legislature for its main tenance, is to be reopened April 1. President Bryan of the Agricultural College, has appointed D. A. Brodie su perintendent, who will conduct the work under the direction of the col lege. Mr. Brodie is a graduate of the agricultural college and shows himself to be very much in earnest in his en deavors to make the station of the greatest possible value to the farmers of Western Washington. A fund of $5,000 was set aside for the maintenance of this station for two years. Among the more important experi ments to be taken up at once will be the systematic testing of fertilizers on plans outlined by Prof Fulmer. Sixty plats will be used, on which the effects of lime, potash, bone meal, nitrate of soda, etc., will be tried, when applied to such crops separately and in combi nation, as b...

2 A GREAT PROJECT. Dr. N. G. Blalock has secured posses sion of Long island in Columbia river, and has begun the prosecution of one of the most gigantic schemes ever un dertaken in the Northwest. Long island is situated in the Colum bia river, on the Washington side, op posite Coyote station, about 15 miles below Umatilla. It is 2V4 miles wide at the widest point and seven miles long. It contains 4300 acres. Ten years ago Dr. Blalock first attempted to get possession of this island. It was then unsurveyed, and after years of patient effort and waiting the govern ment allowed the sum of $900 for its survey. The work cost $1700 and Dr. Blalock put up the difference out of his own pocket. He then purchased one half of the land from the railroad and paid a squatter $1000 to abdicate in his favor. A portion of the government land was then purchased under the arid land law, some improvements were made and preparations made to put into execution the scheme which Dr. Blalock had years befor...

This principle should be closely fol lowed during the process of seeding these lands. Insufficient working of the soil sub sequent to plowing is another mistake frequently made by farmers. Inas much as thorough tillage conserves moisture, time spent in reducing the soil to a fine seed bed is well spent. In some of the semi-arid grain-growing re gions of this continent, experiments have shown that a roller passed over a fresh-sown wheat field, after it had been thoroughly worked down, follow ed with a light harrow, leaves the soil in the most favorable condition for the retention of moisture. This method leaves a thin coating of finely pulver ized earth, or what is known as a blanket-mulch upon the surface, and thereby reduces evaporation to the minimum. SAYS THE YANKEES LEAD. In an address before the Matsqui, B. C, Farmers' Institute, held recently, G. Clement King reviewed the condi tion of the farmers there and how they could best improve their surroundings. "How shall I make a li...

4 BABCOCK VS. CHURN TESTS. GEO. RICE IN WISCONSIN AGRICULTURIST. In reply to recent inquiries on this subject Prof. W. A. Henry of Wiscon sin Experiment Station, Madison, Wis., writes to me as follows: "I believe that most of the records showing 30 pounds or more of butter in seven days are unreliable. Ido not affirm that the parties did not get 30 pounds of something which they called butter for seven days, but I am firmly convinced that a large part of these so called records were not honest, mer chantable butter. I believe that pri vate tests with dairy cows, and those where the milk and butter are not anal yzed, are no more reliable than private trotting tests would be with horses, for human nature is the same in the own ers of both these animals. Second —I believe that the Babcock test together with the scales combined give us a far more correct method of estimating the butter capacity of a cow than the churn itself. This is true, because with these two instruments we can deter...

6 BLACKBERRY CANE FUNGUS DISEASE. BY J. F. LITTOOY, PIERCE COUNTY, WASH. For the past two years the berry growers of the valley have been more or less anxious about the peculiarly warty appearance of the blackberry canes; and they were very much dis turbed when it was announced by Prof. Piper, of Pullman, to be a very serious fungus pest. This announcement caused many re ports to come in, and it was found that the disease had gained a foothold in al most every section of the valley. Tak ing upon itself this serious aspect, ex periments by Prof. Piper were at once begun to ascertain the feasibility of checking the disease. The disease makes very rapid pro gress once it locates itself in a berry patch. One may have a glimpse of the seriousness of it when it is known that several patches are so badly infested that it would be a hard matter to find a cane free from the pest, and that in the same yards last year the disease was but slightly noticed. The very minute spores from infested c...

Place the resin and salsoda in a kettle with 3 pints of cold water. Soft or rain water should always be used. Boil or simmer slowly until thoroughly dissolved, when it will look black. Scrape down any salsoda which ad heres to the sides of kettle. Continue boiling until there are no pieces of resin to be found in the bottom of the kettle. When sufficiently boiled add enough hot water to make 50 gallons; boil again a few minutes and it is ready for use. Apply cold, or only lukewarm. This solution is recommended as a summer wash to check the San Jose scale, or any of the bark lice. It has also been recommended for green aphis, but tests should be made before applying extensively, to ascertain the strength which the foliage may bear. HELLEBORE. Fresh white hellebore, 1 ounce; wa ter, 3 gallons. Apply, when thorough ly mixed, for insects which chew. LIME, SULPHUR AND SALT (FORMULA FOR THE DORMANT SEASON ) .

SINGLE COMB BLACK MINORCAS Having received a number of in quiries of late from readers of Ranch and Ranoe regarding the characteris tics of this old and deservedly popular breed, I have thought it well to give, through these columns, a short descrip tion thereof Originating on the Island of Min orca, off the east coast of Spain, in the Mediterranean sea, they were origin ally imported to England therefrom more than 100 years ago. Legetmeier, a leading English writer and authority upon poultry, says that the breed has ranked amongst their most popular fowls for a hundred years. During the last 30 years they have been widely Dred in the United States, largely sup planting their cousins, the White Face Black Spanish, owing to their greater size and hardiness. One correspond ent asks: "Are they hardy and of good size?" I say yes. When properly handled and bred to keep up size and vigor, they are as hardy, thrifty a fowl as any of the so-called non-sitting breeds. Their standard weights ...

10 MANAGING MUTTON SHEEP. BY A. O. FOX, OF OREGON, WIS. Without discussing the merits of the various breeds of sheep as to which are the best mutton producers, the title of my subject leads to the question: How may we breed and manage a mut ton flock to get the largest return on the capital in the shortest possible time? It has been well said, in speak ing of horse feeding, that, to begin with, we must have a good colt, or all our work and feed will be of no avail. If we are to produce Shorthorns of deep flesh and early maturity, we must breed our calves from the start and feed them right to the finish. Now, if we are to produce a high-soiling sheep at an early age, we must have a good, strong, hearty, well-bred lamb to begin with. To accomplish this, we must take good care of our ewes long before the lambs are born. A success ful lamb crop depends upon the early fall and winter management of tho ewes, as well as upon the health and vigor of the rams. First, as to the selection of t...

lambs in the dry, hot weather of Au gust and September. After the lambs are three weeks old they will begin to pick at the hay and graze with their dams. This should be encouraged by making a separate feeding place for the lambs at one end of the sheep house, to which they may run at will through several open spaces large enough to allow the lambs to pass, but not large enough to admit any ot the grown sheep. In this pen or trap put little troughs, kept supplied with ra tions of bran and oilcake or crushed oats. The lambs will soon take their regular rations there, and will begin to show it on their backs. This should be kept up until the flock is well start ed on good, strong pasture. There should be no diminution in the quantity of hay or grain fed to the brood ewes until they have been some time on the pasture, and the pasture has become strong and able to sustain them; otherwise the ewes and lambs are liable to lose in condition very rap idly. On being turned out to grass there ...

12 MARKET REPORT. The market in general is in a very satisfactory condition. Apples—Good demand for fancy stock; prices unchanged. Potatoes are firm and a little higher. The general opinion is that they will not go lower. Some fancy stock has sold at 2c a pound. The higher prices have brought in some poorer potatoes and some poorer ones we being sold than would have been except for the higher price. New potatoes from Cali fornia will not be in for two or three weeks and what they have in that state are in very good demand; they are getting a large part of their supply from Utah and the East. It will be six weeks before the California potatoes will come in here enough to affect the market. Commission men believe that they are pretty well all cleaned up now in this section of the country. Five or six cars of potatoes are being held back for higher prices up on White river and some cars are on the way from the east. There are proba bly not enough of both classes to lower the ruling pri...

HIDE AND WOOL REVIEW. The hide market has been very dull. March hides are the poorest of the year. The tanners are staying out of the market and they are declining of their own weight, they are Vi@^4 cents, because they cannot be sold to realize a profit at present prices. No dealer knows what he can expect to get when the tanners do again enter the market, it is an unsatisfactory market for the dealers. There are rumors that the Upper Leather Tanners are going to combine as did thi Sole Leather in one gigantic trust and the absence of buyers seem to indicate there was something in the rumor. Tf they do, it would not be unlikely hides would go down a cent or two per pound. The tallow market 1/4 c better. Wool market extremely quiet. It has been stated from time to time that the lack of demand was due to the stock brought in previous to the pass age of the tariff. No doubt this is a strong factor, but there is another — the wily importer worked that wool schedule so they get in skirt...
