HOP LOUSE AND ITS REMEDY. The first plant lice in the spring hatch from winter eggs on the twigs of plum trees in the vicinity of hop yards. This first generation of lice is composed of wingless individuals which give birth to living young. These young settle upon the buds and young leaves of the plum tree, and after a few days give birth to other young. The second generation, like the first, is wingless, but the third ac quires wings. There are no males among these lice, and the phenomenon of reproduction without the interven tion of the male (termed partheno genesis) is one of the wonderful feat ures of insect life. By the time this winged generation makes its appear ance the hop plants in the yards have made a good start, and the lice fly from the plum by common instinct to the nearest hop plants. Here they settle, immediately insert their beaks, and begin sucking the sap of the plant, within a few hours giving birth to an other generation of living young, which reach full growth...

IO CONCERNING TUBERCULOSIS. What is going to be the effect of the milk supply if the present war against tuberculosis grows as it promises, is a question Illinois dairymen are asking. And it is a question that will soon be asked by dairymen in all parts of the country, for the great importance of the subject is drawing to it the atten tion not only the doctors, but the con sumers of dairy products are showing deep interest in the results of examin ations of diseased cattle. It is only one division of the general subject of pure food that is bound to receive a great deal of thought and action until there is a complete reform from pres ent practices. If the rate at which the cows have been slaughtered in Illinois tiie past few weeks should be continued the butter product of the state would soon show a decrease that would be felt. And if the crusade spreads to all the dairy states, where little or nothing is now being done to prevent the sale of milk from tuberculous cows, and is activ...

TRANSFERRING BEES. The novice who wishes to try his hand at transferring bees may adopt the following plan with more chances of success than in any other way: If he has uees in box hives, or other un desirable hives, which he wishes to transfer to Langstrath frames, his best way is to let them remain until the bees swarm out. In 21 days all the worker brood will have hatched out. If a second swarm is cast, hive it, and set this new hive in the place of the old one, moving that a little more than its width to one side. When 21 days have elapsed from casting the first swarm, carry the old hive away to any convenient shady place, invert it and remove the bottom board after having smoked the bees. Remove two sides of the hive, smoking the bees the while. Have the necessary sticks and boards provided, according to the reg ulation methods recommended in the books. Provide a thin piece of board or a wide shingle, which lean up against the comb. Cut the comb free from the side and bottom, w...

their shape for bareback riding and they must be readily teachable. Then there are about thirty speedy race horses, every one of them coming from the finest bred stock, and many with creditable records of their own. We use them for our hippodrome, and the equipages of our performers in the parade. "What do you think of the horses you find in the west?" "To tell you the truth, not very much. Your native bred broncho is a study—at a distance, and too intractable for me to want to bother with them. But you have ele gant conditions for raising horses, and I've no doubt that there will be steady improvement in their quality. That's what your people want to do, and you will be able to make horse-raising one of your most successful industries." B. F. Reed is putting a separator in at Gibson Kittitas Valley to be op erated as a skimming station. A meeting of the farmers was re cently held at Ennmclaw to discuss the advisability of establishing a cream ery, writes Neils Christerson. This wou...

RANCH AND RANGE Vol. 15 No. 32 FOOD FOR PLANTS. [FROM THE WHITINGS OF JOSEPH HARRIS, M. S. EDITED AND REVISED BY S. M. HARRIS.] If a fertilizer is wanted that con tains no more Nitrogen than the major ity of the complete fertilizers of "Phos phates sold for $28.00 per ton, it could be made for about $22.00 per ton. AMMONNIA AND NITROGEN. The manufacturers of fertilizers us ually guarantee their fertilizers to con tain a certain percentage of Ammonia instead of Nitrogen. They do this probably because the amount sounds larger when expressed in Ammonia than in Nitrogen. Ammonia is a com pound of nitrogen and hydrogen, and 3 pounds of ammonia only contains 2V 2 pounds of Nitrogen. ARE THE FARMERS OF ENGLAND AND EUROPE MORE INTELLIGENT THAN THEIR AMERICAN COUSINS? 'It certainly seems so. The English and European farmers, instead of buy ing their nitrogen in complete fertiliz ers and paying over 20 cents per pound for it, used during the year 1890 over 800,000 tons of nitrate of soda as a...

It will increase the quantity and im prove the quality of all kinds of farm produce. It will make farming more a certain ty and less a venture. It is valuable alike to farmers and fruitgrowers. It will remove some things that gives some of our farms a very unsightly ap pearance. It will well improve our roads and make Western Oregon and Washington much more inviting to immigrants. It will -elp many a farmer who is struggling with the grave problem of debt. It will help every kind of business that is dependent upon the farmer.

DIGESTION EXPERIMENT WITH ALFALFA HAY. The chemical department of the Kansas Experiment Station has just completed the analyses upon one of a series of digestion experiments with alfalfa. In this experiment hay was used which was cut when in full bloom and was fed to a three-year-old grade Hereford steer. The results of the an alyses show that the air-dry hay con tained digestible nutrients as follows: Crude protein 10.43 per cent (consist ing of albuminoids, 7.86 per cent, '^'.-mids, 2.57 per cent); fat, 0.69 per cent; crude fiber, 15.99 per cent; carbo hydrates, 28.18 per cent. Total digesti ble nutrients, 55.29 per cent. Let us compare these last figures witu those representing the total digestible nu trients contained in some of our most common feeds used for dry roughage. Millet contains 57.6 per cent; oat hay, 52.2 per cent, orchard grass hay, 48.2 per cent; timothy hay, 48 per cent; prairie hay, 46.7 per cent; sorghum hay, 44.2 per cent; red clover hay, 43.9 per cent; oat str...

HOP REVIEW. Chehalis Bee: E. C. Lucas, of Drew's Prairie, has planted seven acres more of hops and now has a kiln of his own and a ten-acre yard. Yakima Republic: There seems to be a general opinion that this year's hop crop will fall short in the matter of quantity, although some maintain that with favorable weather from now on the crop will average well with pre vious years. There appear to be more missing hills due to winter killing than ever before, and the cold, backward season has also had a tendency to re duce the yield. Prices still continue firm with the market inactive. A. B. Weed is of the opinion that the crop will be as large as that of last year. Puyallup Independent: There is nothing particularly new to say about hops this week. The weather is favor able and the vine looks good and the growth is all that could ue desired. While there are plenty of lice, spray ing is the order of the day, and growers are active and courageous, and are working with the determination tha...
