FIGHTING THE SCALE. When the San Jo3e scale was first in troduced on the Pacific coast, the fruit growers became panic stricken because of its ravages and gave up all hope of saving theircretards. It was fust Intro duced into California some 2o years ftgo on an importation from Chile, and spread with such rapidity in its new home that in a few years it had covered the greater part of the state, and proved a very costly and stubborn pest to handle. The scale is very small, less than a tenth of an inch in diameter, gray in color, and is hardly .liatinguishable from the bark of the tree upon which it is found. Under the scale is the body of the insect scraper, which is very minute, circular and yellowish in color. It infests all parts of the tree upon which it finds lodgment, trunk, limbs, twigs, leaves and fruit, and renders the latter unfit for use. Altogether, it has been the worst insert pest or.r gmw eis have had to contend with. But the discovery of effective spraying solutions—t...

When the dry pastures of August come, and you are as busy as you can be with your harvest, you go home tired and do not feei like milking and caring for cows, and they do not get the attention they require and are not milked regularly. The result is, they begin to dry up and you think they are of no account, and jt»t let them go dry. Now to keep up the flow of milk at this time tl:cy must have some extra food and be milked regularly. In winter it is different ; you have the highest price, often twice the summer price. You have plenty of time, in fact very little else to do but care for your cows. You would nave to feed them hay anyway, and why not feed them a little bran or chops and get good pny for it all, instead of wintering a lot of dry cows that are just an expense?

His Excellency, the Governor of Washington, has issued a prettily worded proclamation desig nating the 30th of April as Arbor day. The ob servance of this day by the planting of trees is be coming a very general custom throughout the West. The school children, who in the decade to come will enjoy the fruits and the shade of the saplings set out on this day, are being aroused to the importance of the custom, and are diligently preparing apppropriate exercises to be rendered at the planting; time. He who plants a good tree becomes a benefactor of mankind. But the heritage of a worthless tree is a mark of reproach against the hand of him who plants it. vSelect the...

EDITORIAL NOTES. The support this journal is receiving is a source of deep gratification to the promoter. Wherever the paper goes it is winning friends and patrons. It is easier to keep your friends in the east in formed of the material progress of the Northwest by having RanchE and RANGE sent to them than to spend your time writing them letters. Nothing serves as a better testimonial of the general appreciation of the merits of this jour nal than its well-filled advertising columns. If we continue to receive the present encouraging amount of patronage, we promise to not only con tinue the high standard of its excellence, but will further improve its appearance and enlarge its size. The shipping of cattle and hogs east by the trainload from the Northwest last fall and win ter, and Sound packers bringing in cattle from California and hogs from the East by wholesale this spring, makes business mighty lively for the transportation companies, but is a back-handed policy for the people j...

Whs Horses. A NEW MARKET. Northwest Range Horses Wanted by Ja- pan for Cavalry Purposes.

Ranche and Range. VOL. I, NO. 3. If there isoiie lesson above another to be learned it is the necessity of scientific farming— business farming, if yon will. Intensive farming—making one acre do the work two acres did before; selec tion of crops to meet the popular demand; diver sity in production to reduce the expense of the farm on the one hand and increase the sources of revenue on the other; intelligent fertilization that the soil may be sustained and its productivity in- Guysisca, 2:29 1-2.

4 Horticultures. CULTIVATION OF THE STRAWBERRY. Paper From Moscow, Idaho, Experiment Station Read Before the Northwest Fruit Growers' Convention. BY K. C. EGBERT. Any fanner in the Northwest may have a supply of tii is appetising and healthful fruit fresh from the vines throughout the season if he is willing to sow a few square rods less of wheat and devote as much time to the cultivation of these few rods in strawberries as would be re quired if they were planted to potatoes or pumpkins. The strawberry is found growing wild in abount every neglected field and sunny hillside in the United States. liven the fruit of its wild pregenitor, deficient in size and high iv seed contents, when ripened in the sun is rather delicious. But one need not cultivate any of the wild species. There are one or two hun dred varieties in cultivation, each one of which is perhaps an Improvement on its wild brother. It is unnecessary to say that these varieties are not all equally good. What then shall we...

pruned until July, so that the original plants may root deeper and thus be less subject to drought. Mulching —Strawberries should ho mulched with swamp buy or manure three or four inches deep, but whore lift ing by frost is not too bad it had belter be deferred until about January Ist. The mulch should always be applied when the ground is frozen, the deeper the b<'t ler. If mulched when not frozen, Ihe mulch will cause them to start too early in ttie sp:injr, and there is thus a chance to lose Ihe whole crop by late spring frosts. If mulched when frozen the ground will net thaw out so soon in the spring and plants will not start so early. Second Year. —Rake aside mulch care fully, working some under the plants to keep fruit, clean; remove some if neces sary, but unless necessary to cultivate on account of weeds, leave as much na you can between the rows; pinch back runners until July. It is not j>ener:illy considered profitable to keep a bed longer than the second yen:1, but i...

It was our good fortune to be in Bus ton one day last June, and having a half day 10 spare, we decided to visit C. I. Hood's farm at Lowell, Mass. A ride of something over an hour on the Boston & Maine road brought us to that city, where we engaged a man with a carriage to driye us to the Hood farm, where the "creuie de la creme" of Jerseys in the United States are kept so luxuriously. We found the farm devot ed to cattle (for Mr. Hood hat another noted farm near there where tine horses are raised) about three miles from Low ell, situated on the south side of the Merrimac river. Tbe buildings arc on the crest of a low hill, thereby giving them excellent drain age; and their roofs are not used to ad vertise Mr. Hood'a Sartaparillft, like tbe roofs and sides ol so ma...

HILLER FREEHAN, Editor. Address all coiiiimiiiieuthnis lo RANCHE AND RANGE, Box 6M, North Vakiniii, Wu^blngton. THE FRUIT SITUATION After the very cold weather of November 28th, 1897 —the thermometer in the Vakima valley hav ing registered from 5 to 20. degrees below zero — the general impression of horticulturists was that the majority of the fruit trees were killed. The fact that this totally unprecedented cold had oc curred so early in the season, and at a time when an unusual warm autumn had kept the say in the trees, lent a strong argument to the views of the pessimists. The bark on many trunks turned black and cracked open, and above the snow line there were few trees which did not give strong evidence in the brown discoloration of the wood that frost had seriously affected them. ...
