14 LIVE STOCK Cost Price in Relation to Profits. (Copyright 1906, H. W. Mumford.) In determining what quality of cat tle will be most profitable to feed there is one consideration not gener ally understood. A brief statement of the principle involved is likely to be questioned. The principle referred to is as follows: The lower the price at which feeding cattle are purchased, whether because of prevailing low prices for feeders or because of the low grade of the cattle, the larger must be the margin between the buy ing and selling price in order to secure protection against loss. As suggested this principle applies not only to the purchase of feeders of various market grades at prices differing materially, but to the purchase of feeders of the same grade at different prices. The accompanying table shows to what ex tent this principle operates: fa! I I ' „ 111 Market Grades of Feeders. «5 "S 5 '-3 S £ _ ii 6 s a a .£ Assumed cost per cwt. in feed lots $4,501 $4.15 $3.80 $3.45 $3.10 $...

THE RANCH . Vol. XXIV. No. 5. Ghelan County Fruit Growers Meet mat ENATCHEE, Wash., Feb. 26— ■W (Special Correspondence of The » « Ranch). —On Thursday, Feb. 14, at Bowers' hall in this city, was held the First Annual County Horticultural Con vention, and was attended by agricul turalists from all over the county. A very unique and appropriate program was gotten up, entitled, "Tour Valen tine," having upon the front page a big red apple, around which was inscribed "The heart of our industry." Ribbon badges bearing the red apple were also prepared for all association members. Some 300 people actually registered at the convention, but in all, about 450 were in attendance. The first matter taken up after the reading of the minutes of the previous meeting by L. M. Hull, secretary of the association, was the question of a fruit inspector for Chelan county. The names of Professor Thornburg of Pull man, Ex-Horticultural Commissioner of the State George Farwell of this city and S. W. Philli...

I used the desparine spray. I gave the first spray just as the blooms were off; the second spray about one week later, or when the calyx were closing, and the third spray thirty days later, fourth spray twenty days later, and should the worms be very numerous, I would spray again In two weeks. In the meantime always examine the bands often, at least every eight or ten days throughout the season. In going over the bands In my orchard, the highest number of worms found at any one time was 22. At the end of the season, or at picking time, we estimated that we had saved approximately 97 per cent of clean fruit, which was all brought about by spray ing thoroughly at the time it will do the most good. Put everything else aside when the times comes to spray, and then spray. In conclusion I wish to say that I consider spraying half the fight." A. J. Linville talked on "Success on Five Acres" and brought before the association many Interesting facts. "Success on five acres in the Wenatchee v...

4 Chelan Fruit Growers (Concluded from Page Two.) success for this county as regards its fruit, production and marketing, is to secure proper fruit inspection, and that the county commissioners were ready to link arms with the association and the fruit growers to make this not alone the greatest fruit producing sounty in the state, but to make it the greatest fruit section in the world. The county commissioners of this county have made the largest appro priation of any county in the state for the maintenance of a county fruit in spector and for proper fruit inspec tion. Mr. Otis' idea is to have every apple thoroughly Inspected before leav ing the valley for the outside markets, to have the fruit packed by experts and backed by a guarantee. A vote of thnnks was extended by the association to Mr. Bower for the use of the hall and banquet room, to the county commissioners for their prompt and speedy response to the request for a permanent county fruit inspector at a salary commensurat...

Fine Wheat Ranch for Sale I HAVE for sale one of the finest wheat ranches in Central Washington. It is three and one-half miles from a mar- ket point on the Northern Pacific Railway and fifteen miles from a market point on the Great Northern Railway. In all there are 640 acres of the finest, most level land that ever lay out o' doors. There are five hundred acres of this splendid farm already under cultivation, with the balance of one hun dred and forty acres in natural grass, fine for pasturage. An additional one hundred acres might be broken out at once, leaving plenty of pasturage for the ordinary farm stock. There is a fine spring on the place and pure water in abun dance. There is a stable with shed room for sixteen horses and the entire place is under a splendid wire fence. There are no hills on the place and there is not a square foot of it that a machine can't be run over with perfect ease. This place could be developed into one of the model farms of the West.

6 HORTICULTURAL NOTES In the last issue of The Ranch the subject of spraying for the control of the San Jose scale was pretty thoroughly treated. It is believed that one who follows the directions there laid down will meet with suc cess in heading off the ravages of this pestiferous insect, and our rea son for this belief is the fact that we have succeeded in that way. But in some sections of the great northwest the apple scab is a serious pest and its ravages must be met by spray ing. Let it be borne in mind that the apple scab, the brown rot and black spot canker are all fungous diseases. Nothing is equal to some form of copper in killing the spores of fungi. The best form of copper is the sulphate of copper commonly call ed blue stone or blue vitriol. The sul phuric acid in this compound will in jure our trees and this acid must be neutralized. To do this lime is used. But this combination of lime and sul phate of copper is called the Borde aux mixture because it was first used i...

is a very worthy undertaking and promises to be a good fruit country. But the idea that an orchard there or anywhere else will advance in value at the rate of $100 to $200 per acre per year till it reaches a value of $1,000 to $2,000 per acre and that five acres in apple orchard will bring in from $2,500 to $3,000 per year of net income is such an outragous state ment that there is no excuse for it, except on the score of ignorance or dishonesty. People come to me very frequently and ask my advice about going into fruit growing. They want to know what can be considered a fair annual net income from each acre of an apple orchard. I generally tell them that to be conservative they should not expect more than an aver age income of $100 per acre. It is surprising to see how their eyes "bug out" when they hear my statement. They tell me that they have seen sworn statements that men have cleared from $500 to $1,000 per acre in a single year. So have I, and have no doubt but in some cases,...

8 fore part of April. He wants to know if I would advise him to plant an or chard there; wants to know what va rieties 1 would recommend. He fur ther asks if the fruit would be firmer than what is raised in warmer localities. He says that he has sojie apple trees and that they make a growth of from fifty to sixty inches during the summer. * ♦ * I would think the best this man could do would be to make inquiry among his neighbors, if he has any, and see how they have succeeded in the fruit business. Not being famil iar with his surroundings 1 could not give very reliable advice. Three thousand feet above sea level is not too high for the growing of good apples; this is done in many places in Washington. The nights will be cooler in such a locality and as a result the codling moth will do less damage than in the warm valleys. The apples grown in such a locality will be later in ripening and will not color as well as those grown where it is warmer, but they will keep longer. Only apple...

10 Dairy Interests A Cream Testing Official. (E. H. Farrington.) Persons familiar with the buying and selling of hand separator cream at the present time, know that consid erable controversy is caused by the difference of opinion between the farmer and the factory man, as to the accurate testing of the farmers cream. The hand separator is being more and more widely distribut ed among the farmers every year, so that hand separator cream is now one ©f the salable products of nearly every farm. There are many buyers of cream. The competition is strong, especially in localities near a large town or a railroad station. There will, undoubt edly, always be market for the farm ers hand separator cream, and since the creamery business has recently developed a tendency to centraliza tion, these large plants are often not so particular about the sweetness of the cream they buy, as has been the case in the past, where cream is sold to the local factory. This, in some cases, makes the large buye...

quarts. Better always have your calf a little hungry than to stuff it to death. I have seen good calves spoil ed by overfeeding. You might better feed it three or four times a day than to give too much at the two feedings. I like to take off the horns when the calf is less than three weeks old. A bit of caustic potash, rubbed thro oughly in where the knobs are, will do it. Cut the hair away before put ting the potash on. This will not hurt the calf any more than it does to burn your finger a little. It soon gets all over it. I like that much better than dehorning later. Very soon the calf will begin to take part skimmed milk. Don't make the change all at once. Add a little of the sweet skimmed milk at a time till you have your calf on whole skim med milk at the end of a week. Begin this change when the calf is about a month old. At the same time in crease the feeding till you are giving four quarts. As you take away the whole milk add a small portion of buckwheat middlings. A bit of...

By- the proper preparation of the soil before planting, much future la bor can be saviMl. Cultivate the crop befofe ii i* planted. Disk and reditk until you have a mellow bed of earth three or four inches deep. Turn this under, then roll or drag down level, then disk as before, thus making a fine seed bed for the development of a root system, without which no plant can do its best. A piece of soil pre pared in this manner and cultivated shallow and often will produce a fair crop without a drop of rain from seed time until harvest. This shallow and frequent cultivation forms a dust mulch which prevents the escape of moisture which is lost in rough and cloddy ground. This is applicable to all branches of farming. Not until we realize the value of an assortment of choice vegetables will we make an effort to produce and store a supply for wimer. We may ha...
