Our Mr. Mayer (Buyer.) In the conduct of this business it is up to Mr. Mayer to guarantee a constant supply of good cream so that Mr. Johnston may in turn furnish Mr. Cook a regular and increasing supply of butter for the immense market which we supply. Naturally, Mr. Mayer makes as many close friends among the sellers of cream as he can. He wants every man who has cream for sale to know him personally. He wants the farmer to know him so well that a personal confidence will grow up between them. He wants this confidence so strong that when he makes a statement to the farmer, that farmer will know that it is the truth. He wants this confidence so implicit that the farmer will not permit himself to be influenced by every little flurry of the market or the false tests given by some creameries to get the farmer's cream away from ,us and then reduce the test after the customer is' secured. He wants; the farmer who has cream to sell to write him, so that he can keep in close personal touc...

A LESSON IN TILE DRAINAGE A farmer that we know had two fields side by side on level ground. The one field had been drained at. considerable expense, and the other had not. The soil in both fields was good. At corn planting time both fields were planted with the same kind of seed and on the same day. Just before the tender blades were to appear, a heavy rain set in. On the dained field the blades of corn came up thrifty and bright. On the other field the water collected in the soil and rose almost to the top of the ground. It lay there for days, drain ing away very slowly, or evaporating into the air. In the meantime all the corn seed in trat field rotted, for it was unable to develop. The other field was in a right condition to let the corn grow, and it did grow. The rainy days were followed by sunny days, and those days helped the corn. On the other field it took five or six days of sun to get the soil dry enough so that the horses could walk on it. Then it had to be replanted, th...

this vaccine without risk, if he will follow the printed directions which arc sent with the application blanks, and it is safe to assert that the government through the bureau of animal industry saves the farmers and stockmen who use this preventive many thousands of dollars annually. D. C. Dilworth. of East SpoWane. Wash., states in a letter to The Ranch, that he has just returned from the east with fourteen head of Jerseys, among which is Rosy of Oakland, an imported prize winning cow, a daughter of A. M. Bowman's Eminent Second, that sold for $10,000 at Cooper's sale, two years ago. There is also in the lot brought back by Mr. Dilworth an Imported granddaughter of the same bull. He also secured a son of old Golden Fern's Lad, out of a daughter of Eminent Sec ond, and says that he is as fine a dairy calf as he has ever seen. Another cow he brought back with him is Barons Ethel, that has averaged 41 % pounds of milk for 95 days. Mr. Dilworth said that the cattle stood the trip well...

THE PASSING OFTHE FAMOUS HAZELWOOD RANCH NOT so many years ago the wild deer cropped the succulent bunch grass of a beautiful prairie in Wash ington, only a few miles from what afterwards became the site of the bustling, busy, growing city of Spo kane, now possessing nearly or quite 100,000 people. Barring a few nomadic Indians the gentle-eyed deer were in undisputed possession of the land, and they thrived upon it, for even in a wild state these acres were productive and afforded excellent grazing. Later, white men came and their herds of cattle displaced the deer, although for a time none cared to become legal owners of the soil. But as the Spokane country began to set tle up, the land took on a certain value that could be measured in dol lars and cents, and patents were ob tained from the government by ac tual settlers. Still, seventeen years ago,, when first the founders of the Ha...

4 HORTICULTURE Ry F. H4IDIV Every now and then we see scary articles in some of the agricultural papers about the danger of the sup ply of nitrate giving out. The nitrate of soda from Chile, commonly called Chile saltpetre, is the usual source of commercial nitrate. There is ship ped to this country from three to four hundred tons annually of this fertilizer. Reports have gone out that the beds from which these nitrates are mined will soon be exhausted and then we must starve. There is a good deal of foolishness, perhaps we ought to say selfishness, about these stories. The Chilean government has recently shown that very extensive additional beds of these nitrates have been discovered and that the supply is likely to last a century or two at least. But suppose they did give out? Is there no other source of supply for nitrates? * There is no disputing the fact that without nitrates vegetable growth would cease and all animal life would cease also for animal life is dependent on veget...

which Mr. Scott makes inquiry. I have no doubt, however, about its be ing medicago lupulina, or true yellow trefoil. In our next issue I shall aim to give a report from Prof. Piper on this matter. Mr. J. F. Butler, who resides in Se attle, called on me a few days ago to ask some advice about what apples will do best in the Klttitas valley. He is planting quite an orchard on the Nanum creek in that county. From what he tells me I believe he has a good locality for an orchard. I have no hesitancy in recommending the Winesap and Jonathan. The same is true of the Rome Beauty so far as productiveness is concerned, but I am in some doubt about its coloring prop erly. The Rome Beauty is a fine ap ple in quality and is a prolific bearer. Owing to its late blooming it may es cape a late frost better than any other apple except the Rawl's Geniton. In western Colorado it colors almost to perfection. So it does in some sec tions of Washington and Oregon but in some sections it is quite off In c...

8 ten years of prune tops should have Changed these peach roots but it did not. Again, we planted some nectar ine seeds supposing them to be peach seeds for they look exacty alike. We budded these young nectarine trees to peaches and they have been bearing fine peaches for eight years. But some sprouts grew up and they bear nectar ines. These things can be seen on our ranch any summer. And these are the facts that are so stubborn as not to conform to this theory of the top transforming the root. No: this theory that looks so plausible is not true. The old theory based on experience that a w reak growing va riety top-worked on to a vigorous stock will be increased in vigor and in some cases will bear bigger apples and more of them remains uncontra dicted. I know from actual observation that a Bpltsenburg being grafted on to a more vigorous variety will be more vigorous and bear more apples.

8 Seattle Commission Men and the New Paulhamus Law. (By Commission Row Correspondent.) It is evident, that there will be no concerted action taken by the com mission men of Western avenue, Se attle, in regard to the new Paulhamus law, requiring them to pay a heavy license and limiting their commission on consignments. The financial con dition, the amount of business tran sacted and the nature of transacting that business varies so greatly among the various commission men that united action is deemed impracticable. It is manifestly up to each particular house to solve its own problems and make the best of conditions. Some of the houses claim to be very well satis fled with the law. These are the houses generally that will cease the commission business and go into a buying and selling business. These houses claim that they would rather conduct business that way and that there is more profit in it for them ultimately, although it is not always as satisfactory for the farmer and grower....

to this branch of his business. He has the farmer paid much attention has considered the prime object to raise as much fruit and as good fruit or produce as he could and then throw it into the markets any old way, trusting upon its quality entirely to bring him the price. When a farmer is raising wheat or oats or corn it is all very well to give his entire attention to the raising thereof, because wheat and other grains go into the market in bulk and are not desired by consumers in any other way, although even wheat and grain is more readily handled when it is neatly sacked. But the fruit growers, the vegetable growers, the raisers of produce in the northwest, are largely caterers to the fancy mar kets of the United States. Washing ton fruit is in demand in Chicago and New York for the tables of the wealth iest people of the land and fancy prices are paid for it accordingly. It therefore behooves the farmer to see that his produce is attractively pre pared for the markets. A neat pa...

10 THE DAIRY State Dairy Commissioner's Plans. Editor Ranch: The last legislature passed a law giving cities of the first class power to supervise the sale of milk within their respective limits; this legislation is in line with the movement for a better milk supply and follows closely the suggestions made by the writer hereof at the State Dairymen's convention, held at Spo kane last December. The inspectors provided for under this act will not, however, have juris diction outside of the city limits and, in order to make the law more ef fective this office has, for some months past., been planning for a sys tematic system of scoring all the dairies of the state, both those fur nishing milk to the larger cities as well as those furnishing to smaller towns, this inspection to cover dairies wholesaling as well as retailing the milk. The score earns are now in the deputies' hands, and Mr. Hanson, of Seattle, has already made one scoring of the Tacoma dairies and is now fol lowing this u...

accomplished by having your goods, in spite of their quality, go astray in the crucial moment and reach second class markets along with second class goods. John B. Agen, the well known Se attle creamery and dairy produce man, made some significant comments to the writer recently which are worth while incorporating in this story be cause they are pointers of consider able value to the dairyman if he will but follow them. "Too many dairymen," said Mr. Agen, "overlook the very important matter of buttermilk. The item of buttermilk is one as important to the dairyman, if he only knows it, as the matter of feed for his pigs is to the stock raiser or the matter of feed for poultry is to the poultryman. Every creamery should allo-w the dairyman, when he delivers his cream, to take back his buttermilk. In fact, the dairyman himself should insist upon this, as it is a matcer of prime im portance to him. If he don't get his buttermilk back, he should be paid something in addition for it. Butt...

Hon. L. Davies, Washington State Dairy and Pure Food Commissioner, who has a communication to Dairymen on another page. tion and talking with poultry raisers in various sections was greatly sur prised to find that a great many never think of taking the chill off the water before giving to chicks. If this was given more attention it would no doubt result in the rearing of more healthy poultry and a better quality. Mrs. M. R. Brewster, a successful poultry raiser of Manette, Wash., states that she has used air slacked lime in her chicken feed with good results. To about eight quarts of wheat she adds one small cup of air slacked lime, thoroughly mixed. This is fed for ten days and then no more lime is given for an interval of three weeks when it is again given for ten days, and so on. Be particular not to feed the lime during moult. Mrs. Brewster says her hens are ex ceptional layers and she attributes this to the feeding of lime. GOOD ROADS. The readers of The Ranch will be pleased t...

14 THE HOME The Prodigals. They wander through the world afar, 'Neath many an alien sky, Where unaccustomed pleasures are. Or fancied fortunes lie; But still they seek the friendly fires That star Bohemia's dome, And dearer than the world's desires They find the welcome home. It matters not what music weaves Its spell in foreign air; The voice that sings through redwood leaves Will haunt them everywhere; Whatever joy may sparkle up Through stranger wassail-foam. The love-light in Bohemia's cup At length must guide them home. Then here's to every man away. Who sails on other seas; (iood fortune speed the shining day He finds the homeward breeze. If glad or sad the heart he brings. If rich or poor he come, The Owl will spread his big brown wings And give him welcome home. * • ♦ The Sky Road.
