base may be erect or reclining in growth, and reaches a height of from three to six leet; stems spring from a bulb like perennial root, and after flowering, in midsummer, soon die down; leaves are from two to three feet long, smooth and glacous, sometimes with a purplish cast, two or three times divided; the leaflets are borne on the upper third of the leaf, there being generally from four to six pairs, are oblong and lance-shaped, about two inches in length, three-quarters of an inch in width, coarsely toothed, sometimes unequally divided or lobed, and with small veins running from the midrib to the notches in the edge of the leaflet. The plant blooms in the summer and bears an um brella-shaped cluster of small white flowers at the end of a long stalk or penduncle; from the blossoms, broadly ovate, kidney-shaped, ribbed fruits cbout one-eighth of an inch long are formed, which when cut crosswise show minute tubes containing an aromatic oil, much like that in the seeds of the common...

It would not surprise us to hear of serious trouble in the office of the general manager of the Spokane Fruit Fair. H. Bolster may as well be prepared to make the fight of his life —or maybe he'd better run. Why? "Well, he has announced that to serve during the fair, "the following committee on entomology has been selected: E. F. Bab cock of Waitsburg, Wash.; Prof. J. A. Balmer of Pullman Agricultural College, and Prof. Fred A. Huntley of thy University of Idaho, Moscow." Now the gentlemen named are all skilled horticult...

10 THE FIiOCKS. AUSTRALIAN SHEEP LOSSES. All accounts from Australia show an unprecedented loss of sheep and an almost total loss of the lamb crop in the leading pastoral colonies of the greatest sheep country of the world. Some of the reports put the loss at 40, some 50, and some as high as 60 per cent of the sheep stock of the colonies most seriously affected by the long drouth, intense heat and consequent dearth of feed and water. The total sheep stock of Australasia at the beginning of 1897 was about 112,000,000 head, and a loss of even 30 per cent of this vast aggregation of flocks means the appalling spec tacle of 37,333,000 dead sheep among the peerless range flocks that for years have furnished nearly or quite one third of all the wools of the world. It means, too, a shrink age of about 210,000,000 pounds in the next wool clip of Australia, or about ten per cent of the total wool clip of the world, a result that must greatly enhance wool values throughout the world. Includin...

difference in the cold of the two localities, in its effect upon his constitution. On the Yukon there are frequent periods during the winter when man must desist from all outdoor work, and the thermometer drops down to 70 degrees below zero, but I have on several occasions seen the mercury go as low as 60 degrees below zero in Minnesota. From this it appears that the cold is not to be regarded as so great an obstacle of that region as it has usually been. "The Yukon Valley is so vast in extent that it is difficult to realize its size and a very large portion of it is identical with the Red River Valley of Minnesota in formation and in soil. The upper terraces of that portion of the Yukon Valley which lies below the point where the river makes its exit from the mountains are immense level tracts of deep, rich soil which are only slightly broken at long in tervals. So level, indeed, are these flats that the eye can seldom detect any change in the surface of them, and a fur row 25 mile...

12 POUIiTHV. LAKEVIEW POULTRY FARM The accompanying illustration is of one of the best equipped and most modern poultry plants on the coast — that of Mr. J. R. Walthew, secretary of the Puget Sound Poultry Club, at Seattle. It is known as Lakeview Farm, and is located on the shore of Green Lake, a suburb of Seattle. The large illustration shows a birdseye view of the place, with the Olympic Mountains in the distance. In the foreground and to the right is the large poultry house. A sectional view of this house, showing its interior arrangement, appears in the small illustration. This build ing is in the shape of an "L" and faces east and south. The inside measurement, including feed and cook room at tached, is 90 feet in length by 18 feet in width. The main building is divided into eight pens of uniform size, Bxls feet. A three foot alleyway extends around the south and east sides, there being a door in each end of the building. All partitions between pens are of board to a height of...

car roofing. This building, as is the case with the others, is double, with a thickness of tar paper between. The building in the foreground and opposite the cottage §is a small poultry house. The one immediately to the rear of the cook room is a stable, where cows are kept which furnish all the milk necessary for the poultry, old and young. Two incubators, one 100-egg capacity and one 200 --egg capacity, are in the cellar of the dwelling. Mr. Walthew is a breeder of Light Brahmas and White Wyandottes, of the very best stock. TO PREVENT EGGS HATCHING. A correspondent asks us if there is a way for destroying the germ in an egg, and still leave the egg marketable, as he has some good birds and lots of calls for eggs for cook ing purposes, which are sometimes used for sitting. We have heard it stated that dipping an egg for a sec ond in boiling water will destroy its hatchability, but we do not know of any method of destroying the germ. Eggs can be made unhatchable by pricking two or t...

Ranche and Range. nKsSi 15v?l:{:nS:8*:( Seattle, wash., September 16, 1897. OUR ILLUSTRATION. The engraving on this page is a splendid type of the modern straight-bred Delaine. Ohio Boy is a ram bred for constitution, form and denstiy of fleece. Weight, clipped, 184 lbs. Fleece 32? 4 ' lbs. of snow white combing, delaine wool. Sweepstakes rani at Ohio State Fair, first prize ram at Michigan, Indiana, Hillsdale and At tica in 1896 as yearling. The editor has received samples of the fleece of this superb animal. Sheep owners and wool experts who have seen the samples unite- in saying that they are exceptionally fine. Some of our Northwest breeders are now in correspondence with the owner, A. T. Gamber, who has a good flock of highly bred delaines at Wakeman, Ohio, and it is possible that some stock of this strain will be imported to our ranges. It will pay. FRUIT SHIPMENTS EAST. S. A.

2 HO^TICULtTU^E. THE PROPAGATION OF HUCKLEBERRY PLANTS. BY HORTICULTURAL COMMISSIONER BAKER. Everybody does not know that huckleberries may be kept during the winter, fresh and sound, in any ordinary ves sel, like a butter firkin for instance, if covered with water and weighted down with a cover to keep them entirely submerged, selecting a cool place to keep them in. There is no reason why any family should be without a supply of these berries, sufficient for their wants during the winter, if they will but gather them and treat in the above simple manner. In most years the supply is abun dant on the bushes from August until late in November, so extending over a much longer period of time than other small fruits, with no cost in money to those who are so situated as to be able to pick the fruit. No reasons exist why its use might not be greatly ex tended, and the fruit supplied in cities and towns during winter, as cranberries are. It is noted that C. C. Miller of Fern Hill, Pierce C...

CLOVER AND C'WIUCE GRASS ...... £j iLIA/9 A full and complete stock, of choicest quality and right prices, at the only exclusive seed house on the Coast. tion has been paid to conserve these fruits, which, as a general rule, are the finest —being the ripest —but no doubt the probable demand for fruits for Alaska occasioned these requests. While it is very gratifying to be constantly appealed to for advice, and while these hundreds of letters, on all con ceivable horticultural questions always have my best at tention and are cheerfully given the fullest replies possible, yet it is discouraging to me, in view of the fact that for years myself and confreres have been carrying on an edu cational work, covering every phase of horticulture, from the selection of the soil best adapted for fruit growing to the marketing of the evaporated product. Many of these letters come from intelligent persons, who were at the meet ings where my papers were read and fully discussed, and afterwards publi...

4 APIARY. BUZZINOS. BY MRS. CHAS. LEE. It is said that an effective way to get rid of ants is to destroy as much of their nest as possible, then sprinkle well with finely crushed soot. One man can attend to 300 stands of bees if he has every thing convenient for their care, and everything ready when the swarming season is on, and the honey flow begins. Honey cured hams. —Into a barrel two-thirds full of hams under brine, pour a gallon of the best extracted honey and after six weeks take them out and smoke. They are su perb.—R. H. Rhodes in Gleanings. A letter in the Webfoot Planter, by Dr. E. Y. Chase, tell ing some of his experiences in bee culture is both amusing ■vnd instructive. His experience is somewhat on the same lines as a great many amateurs have passed through, but not all have followed it up to success as he seems to have done. Laying workers sometimes make just as nice smooth work as queens. Filling worker sells regularly with one egg in a cell, with no difference that ...

MISCEIiLIfIISiEOUS. PIERCE COUNTY FAIR. The Annual Pierce County Fair is now a part of the his tory of that county. The rainy weather preceding it kept many from attending, and the farmers were not as well represented as they should have been. The display in the different departments was on the whole very creditable. The exhibit in cattle was mostly Jersey, and some very fine animals were exhibited. Carlo of Belvedere was the magnet and carried off first prize in ha class. The Short Horns were represented by two entires, one buil one year old and one bull calf six months old, exhibited by Charles P. Elwell, of Novelty, King County. These were prize winners and were excellent specimens of the best breed of beef cattle. L. K. Cogswell, of Chehalis, exhibited a herd of Red Polled cattle, which attracted much attention and were much admired. Grey McL. Richards exhibited a Guernsey bull calf. Charles F. Elwell, of Novelty, King County, had a very nice pair of Poland China pigs on exhioit...

6 THE DAIJ^V. THE DAIRY INDUSTRY IN WASHINGTON AND OREGON. There is no doubt that the comparatively new States of Washington and Oregon are destined to play an important part in the development of the dairy industry in the United States. Situated as these states are in the extreme North western portion of the United States, the attention be stowed on them by the Eastern people has only been casual and really more in the shape of rapacious loan companies But the settler—that is, the man with a few hundred or a few thousand dollars, who came to develop the resourcep of the country, and not to speculate in them, has not come in such numbers as could be desired. One of the industries which has been neglected through want of money and practical men is the dairy industry. Mother Nature kindly provided a soil which could hardly be surpassed in fertility; running streams and clear lake? are found nearly everywhere. The heaven above gives sun and rain in time and provides a climate which, at...

lightly skimmed will do, and after ten days more the skim ming may be gradually made close, until at the end of a month or soon after, a skim-milk diet is reached. No rule can be given for quantity in feeding calves; they differ s<7 much in size and food requirements. Judgment must be used, the feeding effects observed, and the calf given enough to thrive and be active, but not too much. More calves suffer from overfeeding than from scant diet. Keep the calf a little hungry for more rather than fill it to dullness. The endeavor should be to prevent the be ginning of indigestion, which leads to scouring and per haps fatal diarrhoea. Nothing causes indigestion sooner than overfeeding or irregularity in the quantity, time and temperature of the milk, especially while the calf is young; and absolte cleanliness about the feeding vessels is essen tial, with frequent scalding. If it can with certainty be kept equally clean some feeding device which compels the calf to suck its milk inst...

IO THE FIiOCKS. BREEDS OF SHEEP. Some persons are apt to become lost among the many breeds of sheep and unable to make a choice on account of the variety offering. But a good sheep may be of any kind, just as a good man may be of any race, or color even, white or black or yellow, for the purpose for which any one may wish to use him. To some extent a sheep is valu able for some special location, as, for instance, the moun tain breeds, as equally so the low-land breeds, and the marsh breeds. But it has appeared that all these breeds when brought into this great North America have found homes anywhere and everywhere, without any regard to their antecedents. It is true that some of our breeds seem to do better in some places than in others, but yet others thrive side by side with them. It is in the man rather than in the place, or the sheep, that success in the rearing ex ists. And the right man will always find the right place for any kind of sheep he may take a fancy to. Indeed, this...
