good. The following clipping from the To ledo Blade presents the advantages of fruit eating in pretty strong light, but perhaps not too strong: Many of our common fruits are just as useful and much nicer than doctors' prescriptions. The apple, for instance. Not only is the apple an ex cellent purifier of the blood, but it is a cure for dysentery, and has also the peculiar effect of re storing an intoxicated person to sobriety. A diet of stewed apples, eaten three times a day, has worked wonders in cases of confirmed drunken ness, giving the patient an absolute distaste for alcohol in any form. The pineapple is another fruit most valuable In throat affections. Indeed, it has saved many a life of a diphtheretic patient. The juice squeezed from a ripe pineapple is the finest thing in the world for cutting the fungus-like membrane which coats the throat in diphtheria, and if used in time rever fails to cure. After a severe attack of influenza the throat is often relaxed and the tonsils ...

IO THE USE OF INCUBATORS. Perhaps no branch of stock raising has been Improved so much, or made so profitable within the last decade, as poultry raising. Twenty years ago the use of incubators was but very littie known, as they had not been per fected. At the present day they are extensively used and the raising of early broilers for the large markets is now a leading industry. Careful ex periments show that the food neces sary to produce one pound of broiler is five cents, and the chick should weigh about two pounds when ten weeks old, thus making the cost of food for a two-pound broiler ten cents. But this is not all the cost. The chicks are brooded in large buildings, the heat being provided by hot water pipes, and the water heated with a stove which is surrounded by a water jacket, or a regular heater. Formerly the pipes were placed below the floor, and the heat brought up through a tube, but now the system of over head pipes, under which the chicks nestle at night, has been fou...

BLANCHARD'S POULTRY NOTES. Judging from the large number of inquiries being daily received by the writer touching upon the various features of the poultry bus iness, and the orders being booked for eggs for hatching, we con clude that more intelligent thought is being given the business, and that its importance is becoming more and more recognized by the people in all parts of our state, both in cities and country. There are many, however, who do not know but that most any person so desiring can make poultry keeping profitable. Such persons are mistaken. The business requires a knowledge of the hen instinct, as well as all of her requirements from the making of the nest for the setting hen, the providing the eggs therefor, the attention de manded by the hen, as well as the eggs, until the chicks are hatched, and all subsequent attention. Such knowledge is indispensible, whether we use hens or incubators to do the hatching. A nest, for instance, that will do for the summer season may...

12 Agriculturists Should Demand Better Educational Advantages, Wm. F. Izett Before State Dairymen's Convention, Kent, Wash. I am not before you with this subject, which many are recognizing as the greatest which the American agriculturist must face today, because of a feeling of special fitness or capacity, but by reason of the fact that after fighting an unequal battle for years, and at the same time, not being blind to the struggles of my fel lows, I have learned beyond a possible chance for doubt, that the revenue which we pay into the coffers of ignor ance is truly appalling. John Gould, in some of his recent contributions to the "Dairyman," has unwittingly stolen some of my "thun der" by writing along this line; and though he did it without knowledge of my intention to use this theme, yet as ignorance of the law does not excuse a man for an infringement of the game, I shall place Mr. Gould in the category of malefactors, and exact a fine from him by making use of some of his co...

possibly differing in degree? There are many other lines along which we pay trib ute, on our farms, to this same physical monster, but 1 shall mention only one, and I call it "ignorance of the executive." Something, yes, many things, we know well enough how to do, are not accomplished, and for the life of us we could not give a good reason; even though as a people we have a great reputation for "getting there." These items refer more especially to private affairs, but there is another class which can more or less ap proximately be designated as corporate levies. To ex plain, 1 shall make use of some pertinent statements by National Master Jones, of the Grange organization, in his address at their annual meeting in November. Here it is: "He urged upon patrons that it is a duty to cheapen production by better and more intelligent cul tivation, conserving fertility, lessening labor, and by increasing the products of our farms, improving stock, and more scientific feeding. Production ca...

4 PRACTICAL FRUIT NOTES. The growing of fruit and marketing it may properly be considered two dis tinct lines of business. It frequently happens that a grower produces the highest quality and grade of fruit, and yet because of faulty methods of mar keting or handling he makes a failure, financially, of his efforts. The success ful marketing of fruit requires a very close and constant study of the mar kets —closer than the average fruit grower is likely to give—and the ex erefse of the best business ability. Grading and Packing. The markets are seldom glutted with strictly first-class fruit, if properly packed, but it frequently happens that the poorer grades are a burden at any price. The demands of the various markets, however, vary as to require ments in grade and style of packing; so it is essential that the shipper be lamiliar with the standards of the market to which he is shipping. For instance, a market where a large por tion of fruit goes to canneries would not be so critica...

6 The Cream Separator in Kansas. An interesting and significant meet ing of hand separator dairymen and cream shippers was held in Salina. Kansas, on March 2nd and Sfd under the auspices of the Empire Cream Separator Co., Bloomfield. N. J. About 100 representative dairymen and creanierymen were in attendance. Monday's session was largely given up to a discussion of the hand sepa rator question from the creamery man's point of view. Mr. Ernest B. Hell, secretary of the Empire Cream Separator Company, presided. The discussion Of the advantages of the hand separator system to the cream eryman brought out the fact that by enabling him to draw upon a larger district for his cream than it is possi ble to draw upon for milk, he is en abled greatly to reduce the cost of production, and by making large and more uniform shipments of butter, to command a better price in the market. The creanierymen admitted that the whole milk creamery is already a thing of the past, simply because it has been...

Agriculturists Should Demand Better Educational Advantages. Wm. F. Izett, at State Dairymens' Convention. (Continued from Last Issue.) Two years ago at Cheney I made the assertion that the colleges were inadequate for the task of training sons and daughters of farmers. 1 shall give but one reason. Their work is of necessity too slow and ponderous. Too m uch like an attempt to move big guns, such as we have in our coast defenses down around Port Townsend, out on the skirmish line in time of battle would be. Any petty officer could tell you that such action would result In the enemy's capturing the guns and attendants, un less they were protected by a good force of rapid-fire gun* And even after they were on the field it would puzzle the most talented "West Pointer" in the service to put them to any good use, unless the enemy were ravages. In that case the noise might prove effective. Fellow agriculturists! The enemy is not only already upon us, but is crowding us rapidly to destructi...

8 Horticultural Notes By F. Walden The question of cross pollenttioti is an important one to the fruit grower. It is well known to the merest tyro in fruit cul ture that pollen is essential to the fruitful ness of any plant. If pollen is not in some way brought into contact with embryotic fruit it will not develop at all. A good many flowers are double in their organiza tion, having stamens that produce the pollen and the pistils to receive it. Such flowers are called hermaphrodite or bisexual. W-here we have flowers of this kind nature has pro vided for their own crossing. But there are many flowers that are unisexual, having pis tils but not stamens and consequently pro duce no pollen. In such cases the fruit will not develop. These are called sterile flow ers. Some strawberry flowers are absolute ly sterile and no fruit will be produced un less the plants grow near some others that have perfect flowers, in which case the wind will carry the pollen to the sterile flowers and fine ...

As to the reservoir law I think it is im perial. The farmers of Washington need as sistance in this great enterprise, but let the helping hand be friendly not mercenary, Jrenerous not grasping. If water becomes an article of commerce controlled by capital the future of Washing lon is questionable. Let the water run free as the winds blow iiid her future is to be marked like her past by an unprecedented development. Such a law would be a menace to our free dom.

10 OBSERVATIONS H. L. Blanchard The owner of a 60-egg incubator was saying to the writer yesterday that his latest hatch, that came off a day or two ago, was thirteen chicks from sixty eggs. That main of the eggs that had tested fertile did not hatch. Another curious fact was that four of the thirteen chicks had deformities—bad legs. All of which was quite a contrast with our success with the Plymouth Rock hen. at sa.me time. One hatched out nine chickens from a setting of eggs purchased; and two other hens hatched twelve each from eggs from our own yards. In each case every fertile egg brought forth a Strong, perfect chicken. 'These hens were sei in the nests described in the last number of The Ranch. The difference in the re sults in the two cases—the incubator and tfie hens —we account for under the head of temperature and moisture. The nights during much of this period of incubation were cold and frosty, and the days sunny. Our friend had his' incubator in the attic of his house...

xa AGRICULTURISTS SHOULD DEMAND BETTER EDU- CATIONAL ADVANTAGES. (Continued from page 7) to soon open in Dunn county, Wisconsin, a plan, as I understand to bring farm education actually to the farm, and where farming is to be taught instead of "profes sionpl" courses in the name of agriculture; and the question might here be raised, had the expenditure lav ished upon our "State Agricultural Colleges" been sub divided and ten schools established throughout the state, where agricutlure was taught and not avoided, would the Morrill and other funds not have been vastly more bene ficial, and the real purpose of the grants secured?" Fur ther on he says: "In this very 'County School' plan, there is a chance for some of our philanthropists to make en dowments that would benefit the masses far more than great gifts to institutions that are already topheavy with euch exhibitions of beneficence."
