4 BREED UP. No new development in agriculture is more emphasized than that im proved breeds of stock pay a much larger profit than scrub or low grade animals. Many tanners who have, drifted along in the methods (if their ancestors find themselves at the loot of the procession of up-to-date agri culturists. Many stockmen would like to breed better live stock, but have not the capital to start a thor oughbred herd. If a farmer has ten scrub or low grade cows it would pay him a handsome profit to place a thoroughbred bull at the head of his herd. If he is producing milk for the creamery or for city consumption he should select a thoroughbred sire of some of the approved dairy breeds. Admittedly Jersey, Alderny, Ayrshire, Holstein and Guernsey breeds are far superior to the native scrubs. In se lecting a bull to head a dairy indus try a sire should be secured whose dam excelled in milking qualities. If the bull has an inheritance of several generations of an unbroken succes sion of grea...

6 MILK A CONDENSED FARM CROP. R. E. Williams. We see many people who have made a success of dairying, and, it is true, there are some who have not, but, in almost every case, we see that they are not careful enough to make a suc cess Of anything. The secret of suc cess in any business is to look after the little things. Some people are more careful than others, so they suc ceed while others fail. The price of land over the country is rising. J^and that a few years ago would pay a profit will scarcely pay in terest OH investment now. If we wish to get that profit we must specialize; the day of general farming is over and we must give our attention to one thing. It is natural for men to wish to get paid according to their merits. Skill gets better pay in the dairy than in any other line of farm work. The man who can get the most return for the least expense is the man who will make the largest profits. It is a great advantage to have ready money as the dairyman has. He gets his pay ev...

8 Horticultural Notes By F. Walden Prof. C. V. Piper, of Pullman, recently spent some time in the Yakima valley. Jn North Yakima he met a considerable number of fruit growers of that vicinity. There was a conference with reference to the ravages of the codling moth. Prof. Piper sought to draw out the growers as to their experience with this insect. Some things were amusing. Some thought chickens a valuable adjunct in the orchard and gave their experience accordingly, while others testified to the very opposite. Some thought ten and twelve sprayings were necessary to a successful combatting of this insect; others thought four or five were sufficient. ( me man thought spraying with water is quite effectual, if sprayed with force, claiming that the eggs are mashed off in that way. Xo one seemed to agree with him. The professor asked all who knew that they had actually seen the codling moth to hold up their hands. Out of forty or fifty present only four or five hands were shown. All of ...

10 DRAINAGE MACHINE A FAILURE. Ernest McCullough, who has had fharge of the draining of the HIICOCk ranch in the Moxee. has dispensed with the Tjossem system patterned after the work done at Ellensburg. It proves to be a failure on the HitCOOk ranch. Mr. McCullough says there are too many streaks of hardpan and tough clay. It requires marshy land to work in well or a land free from tenacious clay and hardpan.—Yakima Republic. WILL RAISE PEAS. A. J. Milton, representing Northrup & King, the great Minneapolis seed house, is in Palouse in an effort to interest farmers in raising peas, which vegetable, according to information from the experiment station at the Washington Agricultural College, is a natural product of this soil, says the Palouse Republic. Mr. Milton's propo sition is eminently fair and cannot result in any loss to the farmer. The Northrup & King Company offers to furnish seed free of cost to the pro ducer and in the fall when the crop is harvested will pay a cont...

PREPARING LAND FOR BEETS. As spring opens up, the first ques , j()ll to confront the farmer is that of properly preparing the seed bed. If the ground has been fall plowed the Orri crop of weeds must be destroyed uy stirring the ground just as the , t( ,l seeds germinate. Just before , 1,,, season arrives when the beets are 0 be planted, the ground must be thoroughly pulverized, harrowed and lacked, tor these conditions are all ssential in securing a good stand. It : he plowing has been done as suggest ,i, the labor required in the prepara tion of the seed-bed will be reduced to , minimum, because of the fine state 1 pulverization which has been wrought by the action of frost during he winter. The actual preparation of lie ground should be begun by moving he soil to a depth of at least five nches by means of a disc harrow. Uterwards the ground should be har iowed over at least twice with the or iinary, iron smoothing harrow. If the surface seems exceptionally dry at this time, with n...

M THE EXPERT MILKER. "Train up a child in the way in which it should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it," is a prov erb which is as true now as in the days in which it was first written; true in practical every-day duties as well as in lessons of morality, etc. Among many neglected duties to which the farmer is prone is the one of neglecting to properly train the boys in milking. This includes more than the simple operation of drawing the milk from the cow, although that is an art. Probably not more than one in ten persons are experts; that is, thoroughly understand the art and practice it in a scientific manner. The child should be old enough to understand the responsibility of a milker and should be taught to be cleanly as possible as to hands and clothing. A lew lessons on personal neatness will give right ideas, especi ally if demonstrated in the habits of the teacher himself. Theory and prac tice should go hand in hand here. Next in importance he should be taught...

I TO STUDY RANGE CONDITIONS. Early this month Dr. David Griffiths, assistant agrostologist of the depart ment of agriculture, will go into East ern Oregon and Washington to take up the study of the range problem and continue investigations which he made last year in these two states His work last year was more in the nature of exploration than experimen tation. He discovered that many of the valuable ranges are being utterly destroyed because of over-grazing by sheep. The owners of the sheep, in numerous instances, apparently have no concern for the future, and use no discretion in controlling their flocks. One of the important works ahead Of Dr. Griffiths is to determine, by experimentation, what sorts of grasses are best adapted to the several range sections of Eastern Oregon and Wash ington. He wants to find first of all a hardy grass that reproduces readily, and that can withstand the dry cli mate. To determine this various sorts of seed will be planted under differ ent conditio...

4_ MORE INTENSIVE FEEDING. Stock Inspector Bean, of Oregon, has been making an extended tour of inspection in Umatilla county, and returns to Portland with a fund of valuable information regarding con ditions and future prospects. He finds the stock in that county wintered well, but says that in the foothills stock is not in so fine condition. Mr. Bean believes the time has come for the commencement of somewhat new methods in the sheep industry in this country, the tendency being decidedly in favor of a more intensive system. From now on more and more alfalfa, grain and root crops will be fed, and many of the sheepraisers are arrang ing to abandon the policy of hunting summer range in the mountains as being expensive and financially risky, compared with lot-feeding products raised on the ranch. Mr. Bean believes that after the readjustment of conditions, some of which have been mentioned, there will be as many sheep in Umatilla and oth er counties similarly situated as ever, while t...
