There were 23 artesian wells sunk in South Dakota last year, and about as many more are under way or in pros pect. Some one computes that over an area of 25.000 square miles there is artesian water enough to keep up a thousand-gallon-a-minute well for every five square miles, or six inches a year over the entire surface. Can any one compute what such wells over South Dakota would have been worth the past month? —Farmer's Review. For a good dairy cow don't hang to the idea that she must be plump and smooth, that her back should be straight and her ribs "well sprung." These points are well enough for men • who run a dairy for their health, but if you are interested in the profits see that she is deep through the middle— never mind if she is slab-sided —is not blocky or meaty, has a light shoulder, sharp withers, is ewe-necked and cat- v hammed. These were the kind that did the business at the world's fair, Summary of Meteorological Reports by Voluntary Observers of the Washington Weat...

Don't fail to read the account of W. L. Steinweg's visit to the San Jose fruit drying establishment. The weekly Tacoma Ledger and The Ranch both one year for only $1.50. A great combination! Heed the lessons of the early mar kets, and the markets for late fruits — the most important—will take care of themselves. The Northern Pacific and Great Northern railroads have made a 60 cent rate on potatoes to St. Paul and Min neapolis, from eastern Wasnington points. If Yakima fruit growers propose to send a couple of bright young men to San Jose to learn the most successful methods of fruit drying, it is time to get into action. Prune growers will do wel...

io SUNSHINE FRUIT DRYING. W. L. Steinweg's Observations in Southern California Corroborate The Ranch's Posi tion in Favor of Sunshine Fruit Drying in Washington—Mr. Steinwegand Judge Lewis Make a Careful Investigation for the Benefit of Yakitna. W.L. Steinweg, manager of the First National Bank of North Yakima, has just returned from a vacation trip to San Jose, California. There he met Judge J. R. Lewis, the well known Yakima banker. Both gentlemen are interested in Yakima agriculture, and both are careful business men. Hence their observations are of practical value. A careful investigation was made of the fruit drying business, and Mr. Steinweg's observations more than confirm the position of The Ranch in favor of sundrying in this region. A brief resume of Mr. Steinweg's talk with The Ranch as follows: Everything is fruit, everybody talks fruit in the Santa Clara valley. Apri cots, peaches and prunes are the specialties. The driers are operated by co-operation associations, each...

POULTRY RANCH. [Our Poultry Editor is Harry H. Collier, No. &50 C street. Tacoma. Address him on all Poultry matters.] FOWL PICK-UPS. Buy your poultry now. You can do better at this time than any other time during the year. The breeders are crowded for room and bargains can be secured now. The next three months are very pro fitable ones for the incubator, owing to the fact that the chickens raised under hens at this season of the year are so difficult to keep -free from vermin. Chicks in brooders are not troubled in this way. A dairy farmer will get up at 4 o'clock, clean out the stalls, feed, milk, market the milk daily (on Sunday too), make up the beds and milk and feed again with a bare profit; but it is hard work even to clean out a poultry house once a week for some folks. The object of caponizing is to im prove the quality and increase the quanity of flesh of fowls. A capon will outgrow a cock at the same age, just as an ox will exceed a bull in weight, and for the same re...

12 AT PROS9ER FALLS, YAKIMA RIVER. I know a spot on the river's brim. Where all day long, till twilight dim, The birds in extacy twitter and Mil, And the blue of heaven is over all. Tall weeds grow thick on the water's edge And willows wave o'er the grassy ledge; There's a tangle, too. of brake and briar. And the sunlight creeps, a living lire. Down deep among the shadows still. Flooding river and moor and hill. 'Tis there the whitethorn blossoms grow. And shower their milky, fragrant snow, To Moat down the river that rushes by And tiings back the blue of the summer sky. And there in the shade of the hawthorn tree, Is a spot that is dear to you and me. For its sweetness soothes like a healing balm. And fevered pulses know its calm, And over my heart, witli its vague unrest. Stole a heavenly message that fliled my breast, As I sat where the ripples rise and full. And the blue of heaven is over all. —Bernice K. Newell, in Northwest Miigu/.ine. "OLD GRANT OF GALENA." Col. Dexter was an...

TIMELY RECIPES. Peach Tapioca.—Boil one coffee cup of tapioca until clear, using a double boiler and beginning with three cups of water; pour over the contents of a can of peaches drained from the juice and laid in a baking dish. Set in the oven for half an hour and serve with cream sauce or cream and sugar. How TO PEEL Tomatoes. — Cover them with boiling water half a niinnte, then lay them in cold water until per fectly cold, and the skin can be peeled off without difficulty, leaving- the to matoes unbroken and as firm as they were before being scalded. Cherry and Berry Pies. —Have a very deep plate, and either no under crust save a rim, or a very thin one. Allow one cup of sugar to one quart of fruit, but no spices. Stone cherries. Prick the upper crust half a dozen times with a fork to let out the steam. For rhubarb or pieplant pies, peel the stalks; cut them in little bits, and fill the pie. Bake with an upper crust. Currant Ice. —Pick two pounds of ripe, red currants and half a...

14 THE STATE OF TRADE [Continued from page 3.] overripe and poor melons. Coopera tive shipments to one house in each market, through the association, is the only safeguard for the melon crop. Watermelons were selling easily at $2 per dozen. In Yakima at the same time growers who had been bitten by commission houses were peddling watermelons at five cents each or less. Shipping all the crop through the as sociation would doubtless have been a great improvement on this dumping of a surplus upon the limited home mar ket. With careful selection, grading and packing, and shipping through the association to one reliable house in each large center, there is no good rea son why Yakima peaches and melons may not enjoy a very high position in the Sound markets. Fruit Prospects in General. The outlook for fall market is for moderate but profitable prices all along the line. This is a good thing in some ways, as it will bar out the speculative folk who engage in fruit raising solely because of ...

consumption rapidly; a demand is be ing created for it, which promises well, comparatively, for future shipments. We look for a marked increase in price soon. Baknett Bros. The Potato Outlook. Dealers in Seattle and Tacoma say that Yakima potatoes lead there, but should not be rushed to those markets in competition with the local growers of small quantities, who run them in a few sacks at a time for trade with re tail grocers. But this source of sup ply will soon be exhausted, and they look for a $20 price for Yakima pota toes. Barnett Bros., of Chicago, write that although the potato crop within 100 miles of Chicago is hurt by drouth, yet the big acreages in Wisconsin, Michi gan and further east will turn out a large crop. Therefore the best mar kets for Yakima potatoes this season (though the situation may change in 60 days) are Omaha, Kansas City, St. Paul, Minneapolis and intermediate points. The general opinion is that the price of potatoes will be much high er than last year. ...
