to convenient proportions; a complete public telephone and wireless telegraphy system has done away with much letter writing. Natural forces that formerly went to waste or were monopolized by individuals have been transformed into public servants, to produce power to run cars, and heat for domestic and manufacturing pur poses; and one noticable result is that watering stock is no longer as fashionable as in the days of J. P. Morgan's supremacy; in fact, it is the universal testimony that intelligence makes people honest; not especially your in telligence, but the bthef fellow's. Did you ever stop to think how hard it would be to deceive a man who knows as much as you do, and possibly more? The effects of this wise system of education are being felt beyond our borders. The product of Agricultural schools, finished off in the colleges of the land, proved a greater attraction to the other nations of the earth than our improved light and effective implements and ma chines. These trained...

14 THE FIRST CROSS. All our readers who have used thor oughbred animals, even if only of fair quality, on the common stock of the country have been both surprised and delighted at the results of the first < ross. Part of this is no doubt due to the superior care which the farmer will give to the get of a sire for which he has paid a good round sum of mon ey. In fact, one of the great benefits of the introduction of thoroughbred blood, whether of animals or plants, is that it encourages the farmer to give better care or cultivation as the case may be. This, however, does not altogether account for it. One of the reasons, and the main reason, why this first cross is so ef fective is that there is no particular prepotency in the blood of the common stock of the country. It has been cross-bred, indiscriminately bred, and so altogether mixed up, that no par ticular animal has any particular po tency or prepotency. When prepotent blood is crossed with this, the off spring, therefore, t...

The new agrostologist of the Department of Agriculture, Prof. W. J. Spillman, for merly with the experiment station of this State and associate editor of The Ranch, has a series of maps from Census Office figures showing the distribution of hays, clovers and green feeding stuffs over the United States. Clover and timothy are found gen erally in the East, and alfalfa in the West, where also considerable barley and wheat are cut for hay. The most striking figure of the exhibit is the small amount of hay of any kind produced throughout the entire South. "A tremendous transformation must come before the South will again become agriculturally rich," said Prof. Spillman. Cotton was once a profitable crop, but it has come to the point now where farmers are losing money on this crop, no replenish ment of soil fertility is practice...

4 CONDENSERY FOR CHEHALIS. .ne following interesting news is from the last issue of the Cnehalia Bee —Nugget: Now watch Chehalis' smoke! It won't be condensed smoke, either. its a condensed milk factory that we n< t this time. Here for some time past we've been making fir doors by the thousands to keep out the chill blast! of winter for people all over the country; furniture to make the homes of men happy; and are soon to make mouldings, porch columns and fir gut ters to add to the beauty of the homes. But now we are going to feed our fellow man. And you want to watch them come to our milk. Primrose Cream, manufactured by the International Milk Condensing factory at Chehalis, Wash. That sounds good, don't it? And the cream will taste good, too, for our lame will spread from sea to sea — from the Klondike to the Philippines; from the logging camps of the South Bend branch to the sound. Last week the Bee-Nugget stated that the International Milk Condens ing company had filed its ar...

HOW TO BREED AND RAISE HEIF ER CALVES FOR MILKERS. Noah Crip wants to know how to feed heifer calves from birth on. and also how to care for them. Allow me to add to this the selection of calves to raise. Perhaps you may say, raise those that come from the best cows. All right, but that isn't enough. The sire should have been a good individual, with the general make up and marks that to the practiced eye show vhat he is such, and then also, he should be a pure bred animal. There are plenty of pure bred animals, with long pedigrees, that have no value be cause they are not by any means per fect types of their class. Better pay a man vho is a good judge $300 to select a sire to head a herd, rather than take an animal on his pedigree only. Yes, I would not buy one at all, unless I had the skill to pick him out, or could employ some one who did have. This is pretty strong language, but it is used In all earnestness to help readers, to prevent bitter disappointment in years to come. Now ...

6 DE LAVAL DAIRY SUPPLY CO. This company has recently estab lished a branch in Portland, which is intended to be the northwest distrib uting agency for Delaval separators and standard creamery and dairy goods, including the machinery and supplies of the Creamery Package Mfg. Co. They have opened up in commodious quarters at 65 Front St. iVlr. S. E. Brune, the manager, is a pro gresssivo, wide-awake, energetic busi ness man, who has had large experi ence in his line, and no doubt will suc ceed in creating a large trade in this field. EDEN BANK CREAMERY. The annual report of the Eden Bank Creamery, Limited. Chilliwack, B. C, received by The Ranch, shows well for a prosperous concern. It says amongst other things: During the past year a new cream ery has been established in Chilliwack, and naturally this has drawn from us a few patrons, but we can claim that the Eden Bank Creamery still main tains her lead as the largest creamery in the province. It certainly should be a matter of cong...

A SAMPLE IRRIGATION UNDER- TAKING. The irrigation bureau of the interior department, although it has made many preliminary surveys, has not yet made public the locations of the sev en vast irrigation reservoirs on which, under the plan now adopted, work will first begin. But some pretty good guesses, however, are being made con cerning what selections will be made. For example, the people of the Salt river valley in Arizona, feel confident that one of the first dams constructed will be across the Salt river. They have this confidence because they as sert that nowhere else can an irriga tion experiment on a large scale be made with greater certainty of cus cess. The government, it is known, is most anxious that the first irrigation works be not failures, and the engi neers in charge are little disposed to favoritism in making the locations. Inasmuch as what is proposed in the Salt river canyon is a sample of the kind of work the government intends to eventually do in many places, a b...

s Horticultural Notes By F. Walden The writer of these notes has recently traveled through portions of Yakima Coun ty in a buggy. 'That is the way to travel if you want to see the country, unless you go on foot, as the hobos do. It is something of a surprise to see the large acreage of young orchards in that section of country. There will be large plantings this spring. Thou sands of trees are shipped into that valley. A nursery is to be started at Toppenish with $50,000 capital. The indications are abundant that fruit growing is forging ahead with tremendous strides. This is particu larly true of apple growing. What will be the outcome of this? Will there be an over production? Perhaps. What should the wise orchardist do? Some would say that the business should be curtailed. There are some other things far better than that. Cer tain grades of fruit will always sell high and certain markets will pay far better prices than others. The enterprising grow er must study these things and ...

t ],j s : Have you described in The Ranch, (l a ny time, your method of keeping apples by placing them in ricks on the ground, covered with earth, as you described in our conversation at Spokane? If you have not done so, I hope at some future time you will oive us the benefit of your experience and information in this regard. Again thanking you for your courtesy in replying to my in cuiries, I am, yours very truly, 1 J, H. FORNEY. \\ ith reference to the inquiry raised by Judge Forney, I would say that 1 have not .riven my method of keeping winter apples in The Ranch, but promise to do so before picking time the coming fall. My method is not a complete success, but so far as I know is the best method in practice except cold storage. The probabilities are that in time all fruit not used before or during the holidays will be put into cold storage and kept in that way till needed in the markets. That is done chiefly in the East now. Whether the grower shall have the cold storage plants...

1O FIS7ULOUS WITHERS AND POLL- EVIL. Fistulous withers, often called "this tlHow." is a running sore that follows the formation of an abscess or "gath ering" in the region of the withers of horses, or in the upper part of the neck just in front of the withers. A poll-evil is a similar condition occur ring in the region of the poll. Causes—Fistulous withers and poll evil are caused by specific germs gain ing entrance to the system probably through the food or water, and locat ing in the regions above described, where they cause pus or matter to form and thus produce an abscess. It is possible that they may be caused or aggravated by local injuries such as blows or ill-fitting collars or sad dles, or from hitting the poll against the ceiling, or from pulling on a hal ter. Symptoms—At first there is a dif fuse swelling of the withers or poll, usually on one side or the other; this swelling is often tender and causes some stiffness in the muscles of the part. Later the swelling becomes ...

position of the Poultry House. It is usually preferred to have the front of the poultry house to face the until, yet the sun does not send the heat into such houses in winter until i uite late in the morning. A poultry house should face the southeast, and then the heat and light will enter ag soon as the sun rises, warming the Interior at a time when the fowls de- s jre warmth the most, which is when t hey first come off the roost in the • ioining. In the winter the sun is in the south the greater portion of the day, and hence, if the house faces . southeast, it not only receives v armth early, but the sun will send rays of heat into the house until about 3 o'clock in the afternoon.

12 Montana will not be represented at the WOrld's Fair at St. Louis next year—not officially, at least. One of the last things the legislature did was to "fail to pass the bill." Strange to Bay, no particular loud expressions of grief by the taxpayers have been heard. Montana will worry along without an exhibit at St. Louis. Notorious ly, the State's exhibit at Chicago a-nd at Omaha were wasted money, and not credit able to the State. People have no assurance that a St. Louis exhibit would be any bet ter. The sum of $35,000 was beyond the needs. Ten thousand would deliver a-t St. Louis a mineral exhibit of ample propor tions. The farmers and fruit growers would guarantee a representative exhibit delivered at St. Louis for $5,000. Ten thousand dol lars, honestly spent, would house such an exhibit extravagantly.— Montana Stockman and Farmer. Every farmer should be a manufacturer and sell as little raw material off the farm as possible. By manufacturing beef, pork, mutton, butter, chee...

CONCRETE FLOORS AND WALKS. Ihe use of cement and the manner „i mixing it are not as well under took by farmers generally as they should be. Cement walks, cellar or stable floors are better than those made of stone, brick or wood, and an y handy man can make them. The , requisites for the work are good l|, a ip sand and the very best grade „'.' Portland cement. If it is a walk you wish to construct first dig a trench on e foot deep, just as wide and long you want your walk. Next fill this ticticn with coarse sand or gravel eight inches deep, but if you have neither you may use coal cinders, pack ing down whatever is used with a maul or heavy block of wood with a handle fixed to it. Next place smooth straight boards four inches wide along the sides of this trench, fastening them with stakes. Place boards four inches wide across your walk, three feet apart, and you have your mould ready for the first layer of cement. Have a strong, tight mortar box and into this put sand and cement, fo...

*4 DAIRYMEN SHOULD BE BUSINESS MEN. A dairyman should be a business man and produce dairy products at the lt'ast possible cost. A manufacturer produce his goods as cheaply as he can. and knows exactly what his goods cost him. He must know that or he will not succeed. He cannot have much control over the selling price, tor he has to sell at the price others sell the same kind and quality of goods at, but he has some control over the cost of production. He is constant ly exerting himself to the utmost to reduce the cost of production, by buy ing the most suitable material that can be bought and for the least money, and by lessening the amount of man ual labor that enters into the produc tion by the use of the best machinery and of the newest and best styles, by which labor can be saved. He fig ures exactly the cost of each article manufactured, and if he cannot sell it high enough to cover the cost of production and something besides for profit, he would be a foolish man in deed if he...
