fThe Butter Fat and the Price are the two objects which a farmer must always keep in mind if he is to assure n£y J^lthv himself that his cows are certain, profit producers rather than a burden. The \^J§^^\ question of price is attended by a great deal of anxiety to the rancher because / ■uT\ he feels that he cannot keep in touch with the demand for his cream and not i^^Sc""* ] knowing the demand, naturally he must depend solely upon the man to whom wKPjfc^fc^i^^^ ~"^\li he sells to give him fair treatment.

POTATO SCAB AND ITS TREATMENT (Prof. L. F. Henderson.) During the growing season of 1905 an experiment was undertaken for the control of potato scab. The results were published in Bulletin No. 52. This year the subject was taken up again from a partly different standpoint. It has been thought best to incorporate into a short press bulletin the results of the two seasons' work. In 1905 the experiment was of a three-fold nature: (1) To determine whether treated seed potatoes, planted in ground where much scab had prevailed the year be fore, as well as in land adjacent to such scabby ground, would give a crop free from scab. (2) Of the three fungicides, cor rosive sublimate, formalin and sulphur, which is the best. (3) Whether small potatoes, raised from large potatoes the previous year, would reproduce small potatoes or large. The results in almost every case were very conclusive. A plat of about two acres were planted to potatoes, the ground having been thoroughly plowed, then disked...

18 LIVE STOCK Mares Galore but Pew Colts. The trouble complained of in the following note is not confined to one section, but is general: "I keep five mares to do my farm work, and to raise colts from all of them. A few years ago when horses were cheap it seemed easy to get mares with foal, but now when colts are worth some thing I am having a lot of trouble. This spring I will have but one colt from the five mares. Last year I had two. My experience is net any dif ferent from that of my neighbors. The complaint is general. What can we do to get colts? We have brood to our company horse which stands only two miles away." An authority on the horse has made the following suggestions in response to the query above: First, the trouble may bo due, in part at least, to the horse, and all the more likely if he ris handled a3 some company horses are—given no excroisa worth naming, and at times permit ted to serve three, four and some times even five, mares in a day.

size. And don't sell that lamb, no mat ter how much the butcher may offer for him. The best is none too good for the farmer who raises these things. Our sheep farmers are beginning to learn that they need permanent pastures increased yearly in productiveness by high fertilization. The hit-or-miss plan of raising sheep has never yet proven profitable. Never feed sheep heavily on one grain alone. Give them a variety and don't forget the roots. English shepherds believe that peo ple who eat mutton and leave pork alone will never have Indigestion. Arrange your fields so that the sheep will have good shade during the coming summer. It is an easy matter to provide a nar row trough filled three or four inches deep with solution through which the sheep can pass from the pen to the pasture every morning. This will not cure bad cases of foot rot but it will prevent new cases. One of the necessary things in the care of sheep is the paring of their hoofs at least twice a year. Nature provided a...

GOVERNMENT'S TIETON CANAL PROJECT IN YAKIMA VALLEY THE RANCH is enabled to give its readers a comprehensive description of the great Tieton canal project undertaken by the federal government for the watering of a very large area of the finest lands in the far-famed Yakima valley. Through the courtesy of the Pacific Builder and Engineer, of Seattle, we have secured the data given below, and the illustrations showing details of the construction have been very kindly loaned us by the Builder and Engineer. The Tieton project has been in con templation by the government for up wards of three years, but until the fed eral authorities secured absolute con trol of the various private irrigation works in the Yakima valley nothing certain could be said as to its ultimate outcome. Last fall the government took over by purchase all the private interests in canal construction in the valley, and immediately work was commenced on the most i...

4_ HORTICULTURE By F. WALDEN As mentioned in a former issue of The Ranch, the Seedless Apple company complained In a letter to the editor of this department that those who say disparaging things of the Spencer Seed less Apple never go to the farm of J. F. Spencer to see for themselves. There is a fallacy about this complaint that may not have occurred to these peo ple. There has never been any ques tion about the vigor or healthfulness of the trees that bear these apples: the question is about the value of the fruit. Now you do not have to see the tree to know whether an apple is a good one. Horticulturists have seen and tasted these apple* from ono end of the United States to another and ex pressed their opinions as to the value of the apple on that kind of examina tion, and any man knows that is suf ficient who knows enough to go in when it rains. Prof. S. W. Fletcher, of the agricultural college in Michigan, how ever, went to Mr. Spencer's home in Colorado and photographed his se...

in these columns. Our constant sun shine and the fact that we are able to supply sufficient moisture at the critical time when droughts are likely to oc cur, are the factors that give our irri gated fruits such high color. A word more about the functions of iron in plant growth and the coloring of fruit. Iron is an indispensable fac tor in both of these. But my contention has been that the soil furnishes it abundantly and we need not be worry ing about it. Van Deman holds to the same position. Our soil chemists hold that there is an inexhaustable supply of iron in all ordinary soils. The best book on soils I have ever read is a work by Prof. F. H. King, professor of agri cultural physics In the University of Wisconsin, the title of which is "The Soil." On page 98 of this admirable work Prof. King says: "It is plain, therefore, that iron is a very important soil ingredient, although its universal presence in the soil, and^ the small amount needed makes it unnecessary to pay heed to i...

b Miii iom« bacteria are good and we should I'lirniiiiip: their growth. .\li II stenikenper, ol Georgetown, Wash., .scuds in what he calls a weed and says it is all over the country and wiinis to know how to get rid of it. The so-called weed is a species of the fern family and grows abundantly ulun the ground Is rather wet. Such ground should be well drained and then by thorough cultivation the weed will disappear. Weeds are often a blessing in disguise, for in cultivating the soil to get rid of them we do our crops a vast amount of good aside from killing weeds. The soil needs air and by being loosened up it warms up better, and by cultivation we pulverize the soil and thus help to release the plant food and conserve the moisture. All these good results we get when we flght the weeds. Another man in east ern Washington wants to know how to get rid of rushes. Pursue the course recommended above for killing the ferns. By thorough drainage and cul tivation he will not only get the con...

8 THE DAIRY Securing- Butter Stamp. In the May 16th issue of The Ranch, the editors answered a query regarding the proper method of securing n state butter stamp. It seems that in one or two particulars the instructions were not exactly correct, and L. Davles, the Washington state dairy and food com missioner, has been kind enough to furnish us with the following correct instructions: Should the dairymen desire a state butter brand it is necessary to first send a one pound sample of butter to the dairy and food commissioner, 513 | Hinckley Block, Seattle. Wash., and if \ the butter scores the necessary 90 points J an application for stamp will be for- I warded him from this office. The ap plicant will then forward the applica tion, together with $1.70, to the com- ! missioner at Davenport. Wash., and the stamp will be forwarded at once. Should ( the butter not score 90 points, the sender thereof will be duly notified and | suggestions made as to the trouble with the butter sample an...

the tie in such way as to clip oft a short piece which drooped Into the hay. This occurrence, however, would sure ly be seldom and even when It did oc our the wire would be on the outside of the flake and so would generally drop off before reaching the manger. Probably one-half the men who do the tying at the hay baler clip off short scraps of wire so as to reduce to a more convenient length for tying. These clippings of wire become mixed with alfalfa leaves and hay under the tier's feet and are then fed into the baler as hay. Cows are extremely fond of these leaves, and likely gulp them down wires and all, considering the bits ap parently as extra tough alfalfa stems. A large dairy firm has kept com plete records of their losses from a herd of 400 milch cows during the lasi few years and finds that the wire trou ble is responsible for an average loss every month of one good cow valued at $5. In the neighborhood of 150 tons of baled alfalfa Is fed every month to this herd. Now all t...
