leys. This water used in Seattle was recently the subject of much investi gation. Experts were brought here from different parts of the United States and this water was examined by chemists and the conclusion of the whole matter was that there is no purer water to be found in our whole country. The fact is, this water run ning from the mountains is rain water or snow water, which amounts to the same thing, and the fact that it runs over some rocks or through some soil does not materially change it for the better or worse. The read er may rest assured that I never said what is attributed to me in this clip ping. Trees grown in an irrigated nursery are neither better nor worse than those grown without irrigation. * * * It is often said that apples, as well as other fruits grown on irrigated land, lack the flavor of those grown with out irrigation. That thing kept com ing up at the Lewis and Clark fair at Portland and whenever it was said to me I asked, why? It was amus ing to hear the...

8 THE DAIRY The State's Dairy Products Last Year. The state dairy and pure food com missioner. Mr. L. Davies, has issued his biennial report for submission to the legislature now in session at Olympia. He says that the approxi mate value of the dairy products in Washington state last year was $5, --000,000, aside from straight milk sales. Butter manufactured in the state dur ing the year ending November 1, 1905, aggregated nearly 8,000,000 pounds, an increase of about 400,000 pounds over the previous year. Of this, 1,735, --000 was manufactured east of the Cas cades, the remainder on the west side For the year ending November 1, 1906 Ihe state's output of butter reported was 7.479,000 pounds, of which 1,934, --000 pounds was from the east side. Mr Davies says he had 155 creameries still to hear from when making up his report and these would probably swell the total for the year to 9,500,000 pounds. King county leads in butter produc tion, with about 1,500,000 pounds a year, although...

The meniscus is the small disc at. the top of the fat column. This in a fifty per cent. 9-inch bottle is about one per cent., therefore, the extreme mea sure would be but one-half per cent, above the mean measure. The tem perature should be between 140 de grees to 120 degrees P. Short necked cream bottles are not recommended and should not be used, as the vari ation is too great and a correct read ing cannot be obtained. Cream should never be measured but always weigh ed when a sample is taken. The Equipment for the Dairy. (C. L. Peck.) In a large portion of the farm dis tricts an idea seems to prevail that the average farmer cannot afford to equip his dairy for first class work. As a matter of fact, he cannot afford to do otherwise. A poorly fed, poorly cared for cow in a cold stable will not pay ...

What is the condition of the av<r age kitchen and are we as careful as we should be? Does the average housewife thoroughly wash her hands and clean her nails before she kneads the 2 bread? Does she wash her dishes well? Does she wipe her dishes on a clean towel? How many kitchens harbor germ-breeding, dis ease-scattering, sour dish rags? How many housewives serve spoiling food to the hungry family with the insane belief that they are saving the food? How many times have we seen a knife left in the butter until the edges of the knife where the silver is off have turned green? How many housekeepers are guilty of washing off the cooking table with a dish cloth wrung from sour and greasy water? How many women wash their frying pans and kettles in water unfit for cleansing a pig's trough, simply be cau...

THE INSTITUTE To Eliminate Saloon at Pullman. (Fred W. Lewis.) To all patrons and the farmers of Washington and their friends: I wish to call your attention to some much needed legislation for our benefit and beg of you to not neglect your oppor tunity to assist in getting it. First. We demand a direct primary law which will, to a great extent, take our politics out of the hands of po litical mountebanks and grafters and allow our nominations to come direct from the people themselves, thereby tending toward better officials and the relegation of "the boss' to the place where he is not able to control the policies of our government. Let all friends of this movement circu late petitions or send letters to our members of the legislature calling on them to pass this bill. You can send your petitions when signed, to G. M. Powell, who has charge of this part of the work. Don't forget this. Second. Believing it to be vital to the welfare of our boys and girls who may attend our State Colle...

THE RANCH . Vol. XXIV. No. 3. HARNESSING THE PRIEST RAPIDS OF THE COLUMBIA AMERICANS are apt to look upon farming carried on by irrigation as a new science. The contrary is the case. The earliest agriculture in the world, when man first cultivated the soil, was by irrigation. Irrigated farming was carried on for thousands of years before it was discovered that it was possible to raise crops depend ent upon rainfall alone. The largest city the world has ever seen, a vast urban community of ten million souls, at least two and one-half times the size of London, was built up and thrived for hundreds of years upon the results of the irrigation which sur rounded it. This was the city of Cetis phon in Mesopotamia, the remains of which persist until this day in the shape of low mounds of half decom posed bricks covering an area over ten miles square. The first settlement in the United States was in the humid eastern part of the continent, where irrigation was unknown and not a part of the f...

2 latitude 35; in fact, hundreds of thou sands of square miles in the United States and Canada will raise apples; but when it comes to raising the fancy, high priced apple of surpassing appear ance and perfection, the territory which will produce them is narrowed down to an exceedingly small area. In the state of Washington the valley of the Columbia river possesses pre cisely those qualities of soil, climate and water supply which produces this apple of surpassing value, and the same is true of the peach, the apricot, the pear, and other deciduous fruits. The very core of the best of these lands is along the Columbia river In the neighborhood of the south central part of the state. The Priest Rapids of the Columbia river have been cel ebrated as one of the great cataracts which occur at intervals along that mighty stream. Their development for irrigation and power purposes has been mooted for many years. It had not assumed a definite shape until their improvement, was initiated by ...

4 Past Year's Experience with the Codling Moth Read by F. Walden at Meeting of Northwmst Fruit Growers' Jtssoclatitn BEFORE I give my past year's ex perience with the codling moth I wish to say something about the value of experience and how to properly use it. Nearly all our valu able lessons which guide us in prac tice must come from experience. This may be our own experience or it may be some one else's experience, so ar rangd as to be in suitable form for our use. Here is where the work of the experiment stations comes in. In these stations experience is secured by ex perimenting. These stations in send ing out their bulletins are simply sup plying us with their valuable experi ence. Those who are in the pursuit of life as farmers, horticulturists and gardeners are constantly giving valu able lessons through the press by re lating their experience. In conven tions like this we learn quite a good deal by listening to the experiences of successful men. Just here is where I am aske...

8 THE DAIRY Beware of Creamery Promoter. Several times in past Issues The Ranch has mentioned the fact that many creameries are established by the creamery promoter, or better call him the "creamery shark" and you are nearer correct. Almost every time a community permits itself to be taken in by these glib-tongued "promoters" they soon learn that they have bought at lot of worthless antiquated machin ery and have had thrown into the bar gain a building that cost much more than it should and that was entirely unsuited for the purpose, or else was not properly arranged for a creamery. The aim of these men who go about the country and work up a "co-op erative creamery" is first to sell a lot of creamery machinery that is out of date or so cheaply constructed as to be worthless, and second to get their money for the completed creamery then make themselves scarce. We have come across one community that re fused to be taken in by such a sharp er, and we will let the paper in that communit...
