THE SPOKANE SPIRIT. The fruit fair this year is fash ioned on the principle that the ex hibition is not a local affair. It is designed to be a representative show of all the country east of the Cas cades and north of the Oregon line, extending to the Rockies on the east. Those objects will be held in view by the promoters of the home enterprise. It rs not a selfish en terprise, and no one man expects to become suddenly rich from the profits, if there be any. It is in tended to advertise the resources of every section represented and will be profitable to the owner of a 10 --acre tract a hundred miles removed from the exposition as well as the proprietor of a 10,000-acre farm in easy reach. Before the fair was conceived this part of the world was comparatively unknown as a fruit growing section; now it is heralded as a great producer of wealth from that industry. If the rural popu lation will study the benefits to be derived by a mammoth exhibitioh, the fair this year will surpass al...

Ranche and Range. lll,ii SKKIKH. VOL.B, HO. 49. I NKW SKKIKS, Vill,. I, Nil. 18. f BAD GOVERNMENT SEED. We have repeatedly touched upon the folly of ap propriating large sums of money for the purchase in discriminately of seeds by our government to be dis tributed gratis over the country to every one who has the cheek to ask for them. The East Oregoniau, of Pendleton, gives an illustration of their utter worth- lessness belo ,v: "Early this spring a large quantity of sugar beet seed was sent to this county by the Department of Agriculture at Washington for the purpose of giving the industry a test. The seed was im ported from Ger many and was sup posed to be the t>est that could be ob tained. A number of amateurs in Pen dleton went into the scheme and made a thorough test, with the result that they raised more blisters on their hands than they raised beets. If the seed gener ally sown here was no better than the few lots above re ferred to the sugar beet industry will have receiv...

2 Hortloulturs. FRUIT GROWERS SHOULD ORGANIZE. T would draw the attention of the public generally, to the importance of organizing county horticultural societies, firstly for the prevention of the spread of insect pests, plant and tree diseases. By the action of the last legisla ture the only inspection now pro vided for by law is that which can be effected by the organization of county horticultural societies. For a fuller understanding of the mat ter the passage is cited: page 309, Session Laws of 1897, Sec. 4: "Fruit culturists in any county in this state are hereby authorized and empowered to organize into a county horticultural society, and the better to promote and protect the horti cultural interests of the county, the society will nominate a qualified person for county inspector of fruits, trees and plants, and of insect pests, destructive to the fruit interests of the county. The nomination shall be made to the board of county commissioners (of the county where in the socie...

$i, and $1.20. Chicago has had another week of disaster for the western fruit grower, which culmi nated yesterday in peaches selling from 4oc(^s(.x? and fine Tragedys going no higher than SSC and as low as 70c. Many of the dealers stocked up on account of the cheap fruit and today (Saturday) they have no sale. However, outside in Detroit, Cleveland and Cincinnati, the fruit is bringing $i@tosi.io and $1.20. Minneapolis and St. Paul have also had low markets, peaches and plums bringing 75c®85c. The ar rivals for the next week will be greatly iticreased from California, p irticularly in Hales early peaches. Tiiere will be heavy arrivals and we have no reason to believe the markets will be any better. Of course the Hales Early peach is not desirable, for in New York the same day that Hales Early were selling for 75c@85c St. Johns brought $i.2o(<*s 1,30.

4 A TIME FOR ALL THINGS. HV BILL. We have heard this all our lives, but do not adhere to it. All of the beasts and insects do everything in the proper season. Hut man, who thinks he knows all things, puts oft' until tomorrow what he can do to day. Going Up the Ahtanum last win ter, when the snow and mud was about fifteen inches deep, I met a man with one log on his wagon ibr wood. His team could scarcely pull it. When I came up to him he said: "Gosh! if I had known it was goiii' to be winter so soon I would have got ray wood when the roads were good; but mark you: it will not catch me this way next winter.'' In traveling over the country last fall and winter many of the farm ers were complaining because win ter came too soon. This is what they said: "Potatoes frozen, no wood up, no feed nor hay in the barn, and no shed for the cows or pigs. My! if we had only known this, we Would have been ready." Well, let us now begin to prepare for winter. Yes, let us see that the "old brindle co...

long before stacking the leaves get dry and brittle, and will drop off", and a large share of the most valu able part of the forage will be lost. To make the best hay, the field should be cut just when the first flowers commence to appear. If allowed to go until in full bloom, or until after the plants have fin ished flowering, the stems become hard and woody, and are unfit to be eaten by stock. To make good hay, cut alfalfa in the forenoon; let it lie in the swath until the leaves are thorough' wilt ed, but not dry and brittle; then rake in windrows and leave it for awhile, and remove it from the windrows directly to the stack or to the barn. The best machine for this purpose is a stacker, or some machine constructed on the princi ple of the old-fashioned "go-devil." It is better to stack in the field than to carry it a long distance to a barn, for alfalfa hay should be handled as little as possible. Every time it is forked over some of the leaves will be lost, and the leaves are t...

6 Dairy, SEATTLE CONDENSED MILK FACTORY. The Washington Condensed Milk Company, of vSeattle, is beginning operations. Mr. Crane, of the com pany, informs us that 10,000 pounds of milk will be required in com mencing, and the quantity gradu ally increased to the full capacity of 30,000 pounds per day, as the de mand for the product grows. The price paid for milk is 70c per hun dred, and it is expected as soon as the goods are well introduced to paj' much more, possibly as high as $1.50. The factory can afford to pay more than a creamery. It makes use of more of the parts of the milk, the solids being as valu able as the butter fat. Three grades of condensed milk will be put up, and it is confidently expected that the first grade will be superior in quality to any other brand on the market. There is consumed on the Pacific coast alone something like io,doo cases annually, while there is a con stantly enlarging demand from Alaska, Hawaii and the Orient. When at its full capacity the fa...

DAIRY NOTES. BY KRKD RKDIC. A. H. Holcomb, of Florence, Wash., is conducting the Port Su san creamen-. He has at present 23 cows in milk, of which 8 are Jerseys and the rest graded Hol steins, and at the head of the herd is a full-blood Jersey bull. All the cows are milked in the barn, and everything about the dairy is kept clean. He does not allow any of the droppings to remain on the floor over night during the summer when the cows are out. He uses the deep setting system and has a nice flow of water that has a temperat ure of 52 deg. F. He churns ev ery day and makes butter that brings j/ 2 c less than the best cream ery quotations at Florence. His net income for butter in May was $96.15. The value of skim milk fed to calves and pigs was $28.60; total, $124.75—an average of $5.43 per cow. I noticed that Mr. Hol comb was particularly careful to see that each cow's udder was brushed off before milking, and as soon as through the milk was at once taken out of the barn, strained and ...

id ¥£i<s Rlooks. STOCK IN MONTANA. Robert McGee returned Friday from Teton county, Mont., where he has spent the season shearing sheep. The price paid was 7c per. head. He says that several shear ing machines have been operated in that country this year, but they are not likely to come into general use. A machine, he says, has a capacity of 300 sheep per day, and it takes at least two men to operate it. Kx pert hand shearers can average 125 to 150 sheep per day, and do good work, so that the machine has little if an}' advantage, and the machine is handicapped when it comes to working with the fleeces of sheep that are full of dirt. Mr. McGee also says that Mon tana has been visited with heavy and continuous rains, relieving the drouth that was threatened early in the season, and the grass on the range is the finest they have had for ten years, and stock is in ex cellent condition, while the hay crop will be first-class. The heavy shipments of cattle that are being made from this ...

12 Vhs Hpiary. BUZZINGS. BY MRS. CHAS. I.XX. When the nights are so warm one can't sleep, the bees seems to get in their best work. It pays to keep an extractor and use it, if you have but two or three colonies of bees. A robber bee is easily recognized by its quick motions and sneaking ways. The late cool weather start ed robbing to some extent. Do not handle bees too early in the morning, or too late in the evening. Select the warmest part of the day, usually between 10 a. m. and 3. p. m., is best. Italian queens and drones vary much in color. They may be all the way from nearly black to a light yellow. But the workers must have three yellow bands. It is best, both on grounds of economy and time, and keeping the bees amiable, to handle them as lit tle as may be. In all work with bees, the motions should be slow and gentle. Quiet, gentle move ments make gentle bees. F. L. Thompson is right in think ing you can't drain the liquid part from all kinds of granulated honey. It's only th...

Swir|® Department. SWINE BRIEKS. Swine breeders who had small litters of pigs last spring can no doubt trace the fact to feeding the sows too heavily during the winter months. Water and shade are as essential as feed during the coming ten or twelve weeks; without them the pigs will suffer and make slow growth, or none at all. If you want to promote your fa vorite breed to best advantage, don't begin by abuse of other breeds. A breed that can't stand on its own merits cannot be success fully established by decrying oth ers. A prominent swine raises says he believes that if hogs have plenty of grass in summer, and about half the grain they will eat, three pounds of pork can be made from less grain than one pound can in cold weather with hogs confined in a close pen. When a pig stops growing he 1)2 --co n?s stunted, aid a stunted pig is no good. Close confinement on dry food won't do.

RUSSIAN THISTLE. BY A. B. I.KCKKNBY. This is not a theme for a poem, but would doubtless be formed into an epic if in the hands of those who make "fire flashes strike from mid night." 'Tis a thorny, spiney, bristling subject, whose salient points may not be used with any degree of comfort for a "crown of thorns." Yet good may come of all ills. We could not see the stars except for darkness. Difficulties are but step ping stones to achievements. Hie rose would not be half so fair on thornless stems. One lesson in large glittering letters this thing can teach, and we can learn to spell surer by means we dreamed not of before. This plant will grow, does grow, under all conditions of cli mate and soil, moist or arid; sowing itself abundantly without our aid. This plant is and has been what corresponds to a vacuum; one of those things that "Nature abhors;" evolving evolution is ever fitting and filling, obedient to her un changing laws, changing all mat ter that does not conform to the p...
