law Is not needed. Yet a law Is often useful for a time to awaken public sen timent and to call attention to the evil. The final recourse is always greater knowledge and enlightenment. The best laws of this nature, and for the regu lation of spraying and the like, are probably those which are not manda tory, but which provide a protection or legal remedy in case any person con siders himself to be endangered or In- jured by the perverseness or negligence of another; and it is a question if the common law does not provide ample redress for such grievances. There are Instances, too, In which it may be wiße to make a general effort to stamp out a pest when it first obtains a foothold In America, but this is a very different matter from the endeavor to control the spread of Insects and fungi between the different parts of the country. The fact is, that the insects and diseases are beyond the reach of legislative flats, and it Is time the fact were fully learned." Much more along this li...

10 THE DAIRY BREEDING DAIRY COWS. The question of the milk of a cow depends chiefly on her Inherent milk yielding capacity. This is hereditary quality, and, such being the case, the milk yielding capacity of a herd of dairy cows can largely be increased by careful selection and breeding. In herds where a large milk yield is de sired, special attention must, therefore, be paid to the drafting into the herd only those heifers which have been bred from the best, or, at any rate, good milkers. The heifer calves from poor or indifferent milkers, should on no account be retained, as they will have inherited poor milking qualities of their mothers. By selecting the heifers as just de scribed, and continuing their process for a sufficient length of time, the average milk yield of a herd will be considerably increased. It is not suffi cient, however, to insure that the dams of the calves retained for drafting into the herd are good milkers. Earnest attention should be paid to the class of si...

THE DESTRUCTION OP WOLVES. (Vernon Bailey.) The losses from the destruction of stock by wolves and coyotes In the western United States amount to mil lions of dollars annually and seem to be increasing rather than decreasing. Prac tical means of preventing these losses are urgently needed. If the time of breeding, character of breeding grounds, and habits of wolves are known, the dens may be easily located and the pups secured. In this way, more effectually and economically than any other, In crease of wolves and coyotes may be prevented. The lirge size of the litters makes the method especially important, as wolves usually have six to ten pups and coyotes five to nine. It Is now positively known that ooth wolves and coyotes pair for the breeding season, and that the males stay with the fe males and help feed and care for the pups during the summer. Wolf pups are usually born from March 9 to April 15 and coyote pups a little later, usually in April and May. The pups remain in or nea...

12 EVIL PRACTICE OF SUBSTITUTION. A moral thief is not a legal thief in the eyes of the law, and by that token many a man is at home when his right ful place i s in jail, says the editor of the Ladies' Home Journal. But the question is: Shall we, as a public, help this sort of man along? And this ques tion brings itself home with peculiar force to women, who are the buying power of our country. A man, by dint of thought and work, invents an article of food, of wearing apparel, or for do mestic use. He carries out his concep tion; he gets it ready for the market; he recognizes the requirements of the law of the land and patents his article; he invests large sums of money in let ting people know about it, and he makes a success. That is, thousands buy the result of the thought of his brain, the investment of his money, and his hon est, legitimate methods. Along comes a man who has no brain wherewith to conceive except to trade upon the other man's success, and "Uneeda Biscuit" be come...

14 THE HOME WHEN PRIDE COMES BETWEEN. So many of the little chafing prob lems of married life could be mastered, so many of the mists of misunderstand ing could be dissipated by the sunshine of love, so many of the discords in the music of home could be translated into harmonies if false pride did not so often come between, writes William George Jordan in the April Delineator. True pride is the guardian and pro tector of what is best in us; false pride is the sullen defender and apologist of our weakness. Life has so much real pain and sor row, so many dark clouds floating over the sky of home, care and trouble that seemingly no human foresight can pre vent, that it seems almost extravagance to manufacture troubles merely to offer them as sacrifices on the altar of vanity, this false pride.

16 REMARKABLE AUTO TOUR IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA J. B. Powles, head of the firm of J. B. Powles & Co., Seattle, commission mer chants, recently completed a trip through California, which was remark able in many respects, but notable emi nently on account of the wonderful work accomplished by his machine, which was a twenty-horsepower 1907 model Frank lin machine. During the tour, which covered several thousand miles, over 60 streams were forded and only in one instance was the assistance of horses needed, the machine on other occasions passing the streams by its own power and without any acci dent or breakdown, although in several cases the fording was a difficult one. Some very bad roads were encountered, but the car throughout worked to the very best satisfaction and there was not a single accident, with the exception of one time when the car got into an un usual mire which was utterly impass able, and then, some assistance was re quired before the party could proceed on their j...

H O RTIC U LTU R E (Continued from Page Eight.) strength to use the Bordeaux mixture in order to control this blight on the peach trees. W. K. Newell, president of the state board of horticulture and commissioner at large for the state of Oregon, in a letter to the Rural New Yorker, has this to say on the spread of the San Jose scale, mentioned in last issue: "It is somewhat a disputed question with us as to whether the San Jose scale on the fruit is really dangerous. Personally, I believe It. It is early in the season, but the latter part perhaps not. But our chief reason for destroying scale-in fested fruit is that this is one of the best ways to reach the man who will not care for his fruit or trees. Our laws give us power to destroy such fruit, and we find that we can reach careless growers much more effectively in thig way than by any other. Of course a certain latitude must be al lowed and fruit that is only very slightly infected is generally allowed to pass." The quotations ...

We gathered 6,705 eggs during the year; 627 of them were used in the house, 432 for hatching and the rest sold. Three Hundred and forty three chicks were hatched; the best pul lets from them took the place of the old ones sold and are about all laying now. The rats and hawks got some and the butcher the rest. FOOT DISEASE AMONG CHICKS. A Seattle subscriber to The Ranch states that she has discovered a kind of disease breaking out among her chickens, the disease attacking the feet. She says, in describing it, that It may be what is called "rot foot" among sheep. The outside toe of each foot is affected, and one little toe seems to be coming off. She has not noticed the disease among any of the older hens as yet, but thought perhaps it was best to check it now before it spread to the others. For this trouble wash the ...

ORANGE LEGISI^A.TION AND IN SURANCE. (Fred W. Lewis.) Sickness in my family prevented my writing an article for the last number of The Ranch, but I will try to do bet ter now. The tenth legislature is no more. It has done its work and died a natural death. It has done some good and has left undone much good that it might have done. It passed a direct primary law, but refused to give us the initia tive and referendum. It divided the state into congressional districts, there by obeying the mandates of the United States constitution, but failed to obey the mandates of the people when they asked for a muzzle to be put onto the saloon. They were careful to protect our game, but refused to protect our boys and girls who attend school at Pullman. The senate passed a bill making a two-mile limit for saloons at Pullman, but it was killed at the last fninute in the house, by legislative tac tics which prevented its coming before the representatives. It is now up to us to set our stakes for th...

22 LIVE STOCK THE BROOD SOW. In the care of brood sows we will take it for granted that they have clean, warm sleeping quarters. In ad dition to this, plenty of exercise, a ra tion rich in protein, and access to clean drinking water are absolutely essential in the proper management of brood sows. By exercise we do not mean that a large surface of hard floor is sufficient for this purpose. They should have free access to a large yard or prefer ably to a pasture lot and should be driven out every day if they show any inclination to stick close to the sleep ing quarters. Of course there are a few stormy days when the hogs are just as well off on the inside, but such days are few and far between. A cer tain amount of exercise is necessary for each amimal and the hog is no exception to this rule. In regard to the feeding of a pro tein ration to the brood sow, too much can hardly be said. The man who raises hogs in a haphazard manner finds the easiest way to feed them is to shovel corn to...
