TOBACCO AS AN INSECTICIDE. For some years I have been using and recommending tobacco dust as as an all-round insect destroyer. I use it in the greenhouse for lice, in the open ground for the cucumber beetle, plant lice and worms of all kinds, and sometimes in the hen house tor lice, etc. It is surely one of the swiftest of insecticides we can apply, almost or fully equal to buhach. If sifted or scattered over currant bushes the currant bushes will be free from the pest within an hour less. If blown into the heart of cabbage plants it means the end of the green worm. Applied in the same way to the nests of eaterpillers and the trees all around us at this time are full of them-especially in the morning or evening, when the worms are all at home, it will clear them out for good in less than an hour. In short, I hardly know what worm or soft bodied insect the contact with to bacco dust would not speedily kill. I believe it will even put an end to the potato bug. It is distasteful to man...

4 TREATING ALKALI LANU. Alex McAllister, of Yakima City, was called upon by a representative of .this paper last week. Mr. Mc- Allister is one of the most promi- nent sheepmen in Yakima county, and has stayed with the industry through good times and bad. He has a good farm, and a well-built, nicely furnished residence. He showed a twenty-acre field of wheat from which he expects to get forty bushels per acre. This land up to last year was abandoned because of the alkali, and was growing noth ing but salt grass and grease brush. He plowed it up, and this spring when the high water came flooded the ground thoroughly. The re sult was that the alkali was washed away. "There is one feature of this ex- periment I want to call your atten tion to," said Mr. McAllister. "You will notice that wherever there is a slight raise in the land the wheat is of a rich green color and growing still, while the lower places are not doing so well and are ripening a little prematurely. I would not have kno...

The breeding of these an imals tells the story and if they will only bring bull calves for a few years they will leave their impres sion in that country. The cows were not recorded, but they were in calf to the finest bulls, so their produce will undoubtedly be good. Geo. S. Redhead. l>ex Maine*, la. IMPORTANT TO CATTLE SHIPPERS.

6 Wh® Dairy, CARE OF THE DAIRY HERD. BY M. 1,. MATTKRSON. In the first place, be regular in all you do, for irregularity with a dairy cow is the devil's right hand servant. Have a time to feed and to milk and then just as nearly as possible observe that time. It has been shown by carefully con ducted experiments that any devia tion of time in either feeding or milking makes a very decided dif ference in the production of butter. Then be kind. Don't get mad and abuse the cow, because she does not do just as you think she should, liven a cross word will cut down the flow of milk in a good dairy cow. Of course, understand that a good dairy cow has a very high, nervous tempernient, and is very easily excited, while the beef-pro ducing cow is directly the reverse. If you do get angry, just hold your self until you get to the woodpile and then pound and swear (?) to your hearts content and if it is far enough away from the cows, you will do them no harm and perhaps do the good housewife a...

A KITTITAS HERD. Mr. George \V..Carver in stating his dairy experience t>efore the Kllensburg institute, said that he commenced hauling milk to the creamery on March tit from a herd of fifteen cows whose average test was 3.4. Id 1894 he increased his herd to twenty cows, got a Jersey bull and commenced breeding up his herd, saving the grade Jersey heifers. During 1896 he milked thirty-one cows, eleven of which were half-blood Jersey heifers two years old. His herd during the year gave 211,070 lbs. of milk, pro ducing 9,498 3-20 lbs. of butter fat, for which the creamery paid $1628.60. In addition he raised thirty-one calves. The net earnings in butterfat alone per cow was a little better than #52.50, to say nothing of value of calf and extra skimmilk.-Pacific Coast Dairyman. DOUBLING THE CAPACITY "I have four cows," said a farmer to the writer recently, "and lam going to try and have all four in one." There are many cows of which it would take four to make a good one. Those who h...

l<> ¥ti« Flocks. SHEEP INDUSTRY FLOURISHING. \V. W. Burch, editor of the American Sheep Breeder, Chicago, writes to Ranchk and Rangk as follows: "The sheep business is picking up all over. Stock sheep are going up out of sight and thoroughbred ewes and rams have advanced al most 100 per cent during the last six or eight months. Registered rams that have gone begging at $6 to $10 per head are bringing $15 and $20 and everybody wants them." FLOCK NOTES. John Cleman's clip of 80,000 pounds is being baled at North Yak ima for shipment to Boston. Heavy rains and hot weather have brought a repetition of the lung worm scourge to Argentina flocks this season. The tariff bill has been signed by the president and is now a law and the sheepmen of the Northwest confidently expect a return of the old time 50 per cent dividends. J. H. Timm, formerly of Oregon, has brought his band of 3,700 sheep into Yakima county, and will win ter here. This is what makes the hay men rejoice for it helps m...

Poultry Yard. THE GAPES. Here are a few rules in a nutshell given by an authority on the pre vention and cure of gapes: i. Scatter air slaked lime freely over the ground occupied by the chicks. 2. Put a little of the lime in the drinking water. 3. Should signs of gapes appear feed the chicks twice a week with stiff corn meal dough, first inti mately mixing a teaspoontul of spirits of turpentine with a quart of the meal. 4. Give a very sick chick a drop of turpentine on a bread crumb. 5. If this fails, then strip a feather, leaving a small tuft on the end, dip it in turpentine, insert the end of the feather in the windpipe and quickly withdraw it. 6. Feed on clean boards. 7. Never allow resideum of food to remain on the ground. 8. Keep the ground clear of filth. 9. The rich> moist places, such as are favorable to earth worms, are favorable to gapes. 10. Do not mistake lice for gapes, as the big gravy lice on the skin of the heads and necks will often cause the chicks to gasp from ...

12 Wh& Hpiary. BUZZINGS. BY MRS. CHAS. I»K. Old burlap sacks make excellent smoker fuel. If a case of robbing occurs look at once for the queen. If she is missing supply a new one, at once. Do not be afraid of the queen as she will not sting you. She re serves her weapon of defense for a rival. When using small shipping cases nail two or more together. This stops the tossing of cases by rail road men from one to another. — (Meanings. We endorse the above theory. How thankful the beekeepers of the Northwest ought to be that we have such a delightful climate. Kven our bees are healthy. Such things as foul brood, pickle brood and paralysis do not annoy us. When you are stung do not lose a second, but scrape the stinger off. Do not pinch it off, as you are more than likely to drive more poison in to the wound. A stinger instantly removed gives but little pain, com paratively. The P. B. J. for July contains an article by Sidney B. Wood on the advisability ot introducing the apis dors...

Swirjs Department. HOG RAISING. BY W. A. HART. The general principle should be recognized in the raising of hogs that arrangements can be made cheaply for convenient handling that are much better adapted to the purpose than any of the more ex pensive plans used. Many persons are careless of the comfort of their hogs with the expectation that some time they will be able to build ex pensive buildings and then care for them as they should. I will at tempt to give the reader what seems to me a general plan, best adapted to successfully raise the hog of to day. While my experience is that of a breeder, yet I am satisfied that the plan I shall suggest is one that will produce the pounds of pork with less cost than the plan ordi narily pursued by the average far mer. Cheap buildings can be built with but little expense. The farm er can himself do the work of build ing at odd times, as there is noth ing about the construction of the building I shall describe that re quires any great degree ...

14 Briefly Said. Kmmett Mitchell, a young man who drove a horse to death, was last week fined by Judge Davidson, of Kllensburg, £75 and costs. The crop of green corn will be very light.throughout Yakima val ley, the cutworms being very pre valent and spoiling the ears tor market. A peculiar feature was noticed last Saturday, most of the teams coming into town being driven by women. This was easily explained. The men were too busy in the hay fields to spare the time. —Kllensburg Capital. H. S. Simmons brought some very fine honey to town Monday, the product of his apiary. Mr. Sim mons is making a success of his bee enterprise, as well as of his other branches of tanning. —Wenatchee Advance. Good horses are in demand on the sound for pack animals to take to the Yukon. No doubt if some of the enterprising horsemen of Eastern Washington would take a few cars to the sound cities they could make fair profits on their sales.

¥Ji® Hop. From present indications the hops of the Pacific coast will be in good demand. Louis Searls, the great hop man, writes: "New York state, due to reduced acreage and poor cultivation, cannot, under Hie most favorable circumstances, have a crop of over 70,000 bales, as against 90, --000 bales the last season; and there ir a very great possibility of it being reduced much lower, on accouut of vermin, which are found in all sec tions to such an extent as has not been equaled since the season of 1886, when the crop was entirely destroyed. If the vermin continue to increase during the next two weeks great damage will result and will be apt to bring the estimates of the crop down to an exceedingly low figure. Oregon will have 80, --000 bales; California 40,000 and Washington 20,000. The total for the United States will not exceed 190,000 bales. The continent of Europe promises a fair average crop, but in no way excessive. Markets, both in London and New York, are very quiet, as is...

Ranche and Range. OI.DSKKIKS. VOX/. 8, NO. Hi I MKW S Kit IKS, VOI,. 1, NO. LH. f THE FLECKENSTEIN EVAPORATOR. This evaporator was invented and put into operation by Mr. Adam Fleckenstein, of Woodlawn, Oregon, who has had nineteen years experience in curing prunes in Oregon, during which time he has made a thorough and practical investigation of the whole subject of curing prunes. As a result of his owns investigations and those of other prominent prune growers of the Northwest it has been found that the best apparatus for drying prunes is one which provides for an arrangement of trays in stacks or tiers placed in shafts in such a way that the hot air must rise among the fruit, and is so con structed that the trays of fresh fruit are introduced at the top where the air is the least warm and gradually de scends to the bot tom where the air is the hottest. The Fleckenstein evap orator accomplishes this in the easiest possible manner. The illustration shown represents one stack or com ...

2 Hortionlturs. VALUABLE LATE CHERRIES. There are two specimens of high ly desirable cherries on exhibition at the vState Horticultural Rooms, Tacorna, both of which have t)een obtained near Olympia, and origi nated on the Chilson farm as seed ling. One of them has been named the "Olympia" and the other "Chil son 's Late." The merit of them consists in the extreme firmness of the flesh, attractive color, resemb ling in this respect the Royal Anne, or Napoleon Bigurreaux, but more brilliant than that variety, the scar let tints being brighter. The general appearance is of great beauty, the flavor being fine, combined with lateness of ripening, which is ordinarily well into Sep tember; makes it one of the most valuable of the late sweet varieties, even of higher merit than the Bing, which it excels in lateness, color and firmness, besides being a light fleshed cherry wiil command a price with the cauners, which the Bing cannot.

ALLING'S NEW PLUM. "A Klondike Nugget" is the name given to a new plum, origi nated and cultivated by Frank Ai ling at the Allington farm. For about eighteen years Mr. Ailing has been experimenting at .his farm to produce a plum superior to Coe's Golden Drop, and has succeeded in obtaining some new varieties which were unsatistactory in quality, taste and in bearing too late. This year he has succeeded in successfully cultivating a new and most delicious plum, superior in every way to the Golden Drop. The new plum is more than double in size, ripens at the same time, has same size free stone pit, is a beautiful golden yel low, a thin skin, very juicy and of much finer flavor. It possesses all of the most desirable qualities of a dessert fruit. Competent judges have sampled this new plum and pronounced it decidedly superior in every respect to the celebrated Gold en Drop. The tree is a wonderful l>earer, with strong wood and straight growth. —Tacoma Union. Many of the residents of...

ranging from five to ten years, with privilege of extensions under cer tain conditions. The lessees feel- ing thus secure in their ranges for a long pericd of time, are encouraged to construct fences and other im- provements to protect their water ing places and ranges from the numerous roving bands of worth- less horses which, as you are aware, are today the curse of Eastern Washington. In some localities are vast acres of excellent pasturage lauds which, however, are so far dis tant from water as to be nearly use less. In order to utilize these lands for stock grazing purposes, this de partment has already undertaken to sink wells at various points for the purpose of furnishing the necessary water to enable stockmen to occupy such ranges. One well has been completed in Adams county, and a sufficiency of excellent water ob tained, thus making available in the vicinity of the well a large area of otherwise practically useless'ter ritory.

6 ¥li@ Dairy, GIVE THE COWS A CHANCE. Referring to an item appearing in this paper two weeks ago a corres pondent at Yakima City writes: "If C. H. Bartlett, manager of the Yakima City creamery, will drive around among his patrons and take a look at their pastures he will find the cause for some of them bring ing only 200 pouuds of milk from 16 or 18 cows, while another man brings 150 pounds from three cows. Now, don't blame the cows, but just put O. V. Carpenter down as an example to his brother farmers. He treats his cows as dairy cows should be treated —keeping them in a good pasture night and day while others turn their cows out on the roadside to pick what they can find; others drive their cows a couple of miles on a hot, dust road to a pas ture that sheep would almost starve in. Now, like Mr. Carpenter, give your cows a chance and they will repay you for it. The Cows' Friend. THE HAZELWOOD DAIRY.
