HOPS. HOPS AND PRICES. James Power of LaConner, well-known throughout West ern Washington, writes to the Oregonian the following sensible letter: "Permit me to suggest that you would be doing your state a great service to editorially advise the hop growers and country press of Oregon not to brag so much about the enormous yield of hops, nor how they can raise hops and make money. You can say on the authority of a hop grow er of many years' experience, that there is no money in hops short of 10 cents per pound, except at the expense of labor. "During the last two or three years they have been grind ing down, lower and lower, the picking expenses, at the cost of labor, and throwing hops on the market at any price; and you can readily see the advantage which accrues to tke Eastern corporation brewers and those of England, and correspondingly pinches the producers and laborers of your state, which now takes the lead as the greatest hop state in this country. HOP NOTES. It is raining on ...

4 APIARY. BUZZINGS. BY MRS. CHAS. LEE. The grape sugar of honey does not cause decay of the teeth as cane sugar does. All bees will become robbers, if tempted with exposed sweets in times of scarcity. Keep a sharp watch during the fall months. It is said that lemonade made just as usual except be ing sweetened with pure extracted honey makes a very refreshing and stimulating drink. An article in P. B. J., entitled, "Why Honey is Low," by B. S. E., places the blame where it belongs, and also pre . scribes the right remedy and the only sure one. (But, Mrs. Lee, you should tell our readers something about this rem edy.—Ed.) Mr. Lee has a great deal of faith in bee stings as a cure for rheumatism, as the pain of that disease disappears in the spring as soon as he begins to work with the bees, but returns during the winter. Consumptive people have derived great benefit from the use of honey, and it has been used with satisfactory results as a substitute for cod liver oil. For coughs, col...

CALIFORNIA COMPETITION. A representative passing a fruit and novelty stand in Seattle the other day-noticed a large sign: "Pure Cali fornia Orange Honey." In front of the sign was the honey put up' in small pint jars and set out in the sunshine so that it reflected in the light and looked quite tempting. "How much for a jar?" was asked by the reporter. ."Twenty cents, sir," said the proprietor. He talked with a slightly foreign accent and looked keenly at the questioner. "Where does it come from?" "There's the sign, sir," he answered, pointing with his thumb over his shoulder. "Is it really honey made from the orange blossoms?" "Yes, sir." "Why don't you sell Yakima honey? It is produced in this state and should find ready sale. Yakima and Wen atchee honey is of first grade and people would feel more like buying it." "Oh, have you honey to sell, sir? the storekeeper ask ed.* "What is your price?" and he smiled blandly at the thought of a prospective trade. He seemed a pretty good so...

6 THE DAlf^V. THE SCRUB —ITS CAUSES AND CURE. BY ADAM M. SETVENS. Editor RANCHE AND RANGE: I see in "Strippings" in RANCHE AND RANGE a clipping from Farm, Stock and Home: "It was a happy day for stock growers when it was dis covered that a registered and pedigreed animal might still be a scrub." Now, I do not wish to be understood as taking issue with the above sentiment. On the contrary, scrubs can be seen in all classes and breeds of domestic animals, but in many instances they are maae scrubs by environment, and the care taken of the animal is the responsible party. Per haps an inferior is a good definition of scrub. And while they may have some value, so far as profit is concerned they might be styled wortnless. It is well to remember that breeding is not automatic. That while the rule, "like pro duces like of ancestor" holds good, it requires judgment on the part of the breeder to make proper selection in mating animals in breeding and that a blank is occasionally pro duced by ...

is not a flesh former by any means. In fact, she becomes quite poor as a usual thing while milking, and in order to enable her to stand the strain of this depletion she should be made to gain rapidly in flesh during the period that she is dry. This does not mean that she should be fed highly on milk-producing food just before calving, but it merely means that after going dry she should have lib eral feeding until, say, a week before calving. —Southern Farm Gazette. SUCCESS IN DAIRYING. There are many now-a-days who profess, to give us the keynote to success in dairying. There is many a "lo here!" and "lo there!" In most of these calculations, the cow rs placed first. This I believe to be wrong, decidedly wrong. First and foremost stands and must stand the man. Giv en a man who possesses the true instinct of the dairyman, and success will follow. Such a man will necessarily soon gather about him a good herd and good mechanical appli ances. He will develop his cows and work up a good ...

IO THE FIiOCKS. Visited the Sheepmen. E. W. Eyanson of the Seattle Woolen Mill Company spent several days recently among the wool growers of Eastern Washington. He says the sheepmen are feeling pretty good over the outlook for the industry. His mill uses a great deal of home-grown wool, and as it is manufac turing first-class goods, is worthy hearty support by our people. Mr. Eyanson says that he was pleased to note while on his recent visit among Eastern Washington flockmasters that there was an eager demand for Rambouillet and me rino rams to put at the head of their bands. He thinks that in the Rambouillet will be found a very fine animal for the Northwest range. The Delaine merino is also destined to be a money maker. In the Sheepmen's Favor. Some two months since the attorney general directed United States District Attorney Murphy to discontinue pro ceedings in the cases of the parties arrested last year for trespassing on the Cascade reserve by driving and pastur ing sheep the...

IWISCHIIIIfINEOUS The Extractor. The largest part of the honey crop of this country is now secured by the use of the "honey extractor.'' The extractor is one of the most valuable helps to the beekeeper. The largest yield of honey is thus obtained, and the pure liquid honey thus obtained by its use ie becoming more popular every year with consumers. The extractor is a large tin can of some thirty or forty gallons, inside of which is a revolving reel, with gearing and crank attached. Inside of this reel is placed the comb of honey, and by turning the crank the reel revolves and the honey is dis lodged from the comb by centrifugal force. The comb, after being emptied of its contents, is placed back into the hive of bees to be refilled and is not injured in the least by extracting. The saving of comb in this manner is quite an item, as bees con sume twenty pounds of honey to produce a pound of wax. Hence it will be seen that a saving of one pound of comb in this manner is a gain of twen...

12 POUIiTHV. QUINEAS ON THE FARH. For the cost and trouble required in raising them, guineas are among the most profitable fowls which can be raised on the farm. They prefer to seek their own food in the fields, and so long as they can find plenty themselves they will not come home to get it. In this way they eat up a great number of worms and grubs and keep down bugs and beetles to a great extent. A good flock of the fowls needs a large range, and every farm of any size should be blessed with a few at least. It is not profitable to attempt to raise them on small ranges, for they will not thrive when cooped up the same as other barn-yard fowls. A flock of 20 will forage over a farm of 50 or 100 acres, and by their per sistence will help to keep down all bugs and insects. They will do more. They win help to keep down many noxious weeds and wild plants. The guineas are also the most trustworthy watchdogs. If taught to roost in the hennery, or close to it, they will give the loudest al...

to each card, with a grain of corn at the other end of the string, and scatter them where the hens congregate. When the hungry biddy gobbles up the grain that draws the prize, she follows up the string, stowing it away until she comes to the card. Then you will see her pull out for home, carrying in her mouth your polite request." Remember that a growing chicken or duck is always hungry, and feed them often. Do not throw feed for poultry in piles. If you do, they will bolt it as fast as they can. This is not so bad in the case of grain, but soft feeu should be eaten in small bits in order not to be packed in the crop. The ideal fowl is one that has a full round breast, thick thighs and a shore neck. This style has the most meat on desirable portions of the body, and the Wyandottes and Plymouth Rocks come nearest filling this ideal. If your chicks are missing and there is a mystery about their disappearance it might do no .harm to interview the cat. A chicken-killing cat is the most ...

There isn't a mother among our readers but will agree with us that the accompanying picture shows a youngster about as fine and sweet as they make 'em. His name is Charles Leslie Crane, and he is but eight months of age. Those chubby features of his have already started him upon the high road to fame, for the directors of the Wash ington Condensed Milk Co., of Seattle, have decided that this portrait is the very thing to use upon the labels of their "Sweet Clover" brand. So as the business grows this little fellow is going to continue to enlarge his circle of acquaintances all over the Pacific Coast and maybe go into the foreign lands across the ocean. Anyway Charles Les lie is a winning youngster and we who have today had our first introduction to him in his healthy^baby bigness will watch him grow and grow, and after awhile he will take his place right up among the first in the r...

2 HO^TICUIiTUHE. HOW THE FRUIT TRADE GROWS. "This year's shipments of Washington, Idaho and Oregon fruit to the East are the heaviest in the history of the North west," said Freight Agent F. D. Gibbs of the Northern Pa cific at Spokane last week to a representative of this paper. "The increase in peach shipments amounted to fully 25 per cent. Prune shipments increased 50 per cent, one section alone shipping 15 carloads; apricot shipments were 25 per cent heavier than last year, and from advices we have re ceived the apple shipments will oe fully 50 per cent larger than in any preceding year. To what is the increase due? To greater acreage of trees and to wonderfully favorable climatic conditions. "From what I can gather, the entire country is awaken ing to its advantages as a fruit growing section, and hor ticulture is receiving more attention than ever before. During the past and present week the Northern Pacific has been running, and will run, fast through fruit trains of 10 or mo...

The city authorities have been very lenient in enforcing this ordinance, on the rep resentation of commission merchants and handlers that its enforcement without time for preparation would work hardship upon the shippers who had already secured their season's package. It is thought, however, that public opin ion now demands that something be done to prohibit the future use of "snide" packages, the short-quart berry boxes, the eleven-peck barrels, and the red tarlatan for basket covers; and it is announced that from this time forward honest quart boxes and honest barrels alone must be used, and that the use of tarlatan to deceive the purchaser of frui...

A APIARY. KING COUNTY MAN'S TROUBLES. Is there a law concerning bees when they swarm on a stranger's land? My bees swarmed recently and settled in a vacant lot. My wife traced them to the spot, and they settled. My neighbor had the privilege of keeping his chickens on this lot, from the owner. He would not let me enter this lot to get my bees, so I went to the owner who gave me a written permit to get my bees from his lot, but my neighbor would not let me get .them. So I went to a lawyer to make out papers for the constable to get my bees. We got the bees back, but the trouble was not ended. My neighbor was determined to claim the bees be caused he captured them. He appealed, and we went be fore a justice who decided the case in my favor. Now he is likely to appeal again. I would like to have the law published for the benefit of readers. AUG. BACHMANN. KEEPING ANTS OUT OF HIVE.

JVHSCEIiIIAfiEOUS. EUROPEAN CROPS. Inquiry into European crop conditions indicates that the crop conditions are very grave. Estimates of Europe's (including England) needs of wheat import range all the way from 300,000,000 to 400, --000,000 bushels. Europe's wheat crops for 1895, 1894 and 1893 averaged 1,500,000,000 bushels. In 1891, the famine year, it was only 1,200,000,000. The impression is gaining ground that Europe's wheat crop this year is even less than in 1891. But this is not the worst of it. Europe usually pro duces as much rye as she does wheat. It is the bread grain of the masses. The rye crop of the principal European countries has averaged above 1,300,000,000 annually for 1896, 1895, 1894 and 1893. This season the rye crop of these countries cannot much exceed 875,000,000 bushels. Quite as bad is the potato prospect. Only about 1,850, --000,000 bushels of potatoes will be harvested in these coun tries this year. Without regard to the United Kingdom or other European c...

6 THE Dfllt^V. RAISING STOCK FOR THE DAIRY. BY C. R. TOWLE. This subject is in season at all times of the year, as under present conditions dairying is largely being carried on the year round. As a usual thing farmers should raise enough heifers for the supply of their own dairies. There are some advan tages in this over the practice of purchasing cows for the purpose as needed. It should be found cheaper and more satisfactory altogether. The farmer should be careful in the selection and breed ing of his stock, so as to get the best for the use to which they are to be put. If he is making butter he wants a breed or kind best adapted for this purpose. He should constantly work with this end in view. Always keep a purebred male of satisfactory ancestry, and then if not able to at once invest in full blood cows, grade up from the best ones on the farm. In this way good progress can be made, and perseveringly continued in will result in a fine working dairy herd. Select the most promisi...
