Wool Growers, Dealers f Owners of Sfteep Ja£E PHY PROMP CHSH FOR SHEUJb 3 PELTS and TTITOOIj SEATTLE WOOLEN MILL CO. proved more durable than any other fibre. It is also used extensively for ladies' lustrous dress fabrics and much is worked up in connection with silk goods. The world's annual supply is about 20,000,000 pounds, the bulk of this being fairly evenly divided between Turkey and South Africa. The United States uses about 2,000,000 pounds per annum, but as yet produces only about 500,000, so that there is ample inducement for raising more of the product here, especially in view of the fact that under the new tariff a duty of twelve cents per pound will be imposed on the imported article. The skins of the Angora goats are very beautiful when properly dressed and are gaining much favor as ornaments and for rugs, baby carriage and sleigh robes, and for making into capes for ladies and children. The Angora goat will thrive wherever sheep do well and in many places which are to...

I 2 POUIiT^Y. WHITE PLYMOUTH ROCKS WIN. The National Stockman some time since offered prizes for egg production, covering a period of one year. The following report shows the result of the contest, and it also shows what can be done with good hens properly fed: First-prize pen—owned by W. S. Stevens, Ohio. Eight White Plymouth Rock pullets; laid an average of 289 eggs each, of a value of $5.02 per hen. Second-prize pen—owned by Wm. G. Dodson, Ohio.

THE mfI^KETS. . Hay and grain shipments to Alaska have suffered some what of a set-back this week. Such extraordinary prices as were ruling there resulted in large lots being rushed up by every steamer until the supply exceeded the demand, and some of the speculators have been lucky to sell at the same prices paid in beattle not counting the freight. The rate up there has been $15 for hay and $11 to $12 for grain. Oats are not coming in very plentiful. The harvesting operations have been interfered with by the inclement weather, but if the clear SKies that have been prevalent the past few days continue rapid progress will be made. Potatoes used in Sound markets are principally home grown. The best tubers come from Whidby Island. A good deal of complaint is heard that Yakima potatoes are scabby and not up to standard, because of poor stock. Oregon shippers are afraid of Inspector Brown, who has been condemning large lots of their fruit containing insect pests, and apples and pears ar...

14 Pierce County Fair Notes. The Scotch Collies shown by Peffard & Wilcox, of Olym pia, were cry fine. The dairy exhibit was a disappointment in regard to the number of exhibitors, but was a grand success in regard to the quality of the products exhibited. The cleanliness, neatness of packages, the superior quality of the butter and cheese would compare favorably with and we believe in some cases surpass the products of Eastern creameries. The quality of butter and cheese was so nearly equal that when the judges counted up the score there was only a dif ference of one-half point in first and second prizes.

Ranche and Range. ISSUED WEEKLY NEwfKiuKs;vo[::i;No:2s.( Seattle, wash., September 23, 1897. A LIVESTOCK DISCUSSION. Desiring to secure some definite information regarding this subject a RANCHE AND RANGE representative ap proached Mr. Charles Bruhn, of the firm of Frye & Bruhn, with whom every ranger in the Northwest has knowledge. "If you are not too busy, RANCHE AND RANGE would like to get some information from you, Mr. Bruhn." "Cer tainly, sir, take all the time you want." "How many head of beeves are consumed in the Sound markets weekly?" "Seattle is now using about 300 per week, with good, brisk, growing business; Tacoma about 200; Whatcom, 50; Snohomish, 15; Everett, 35; Olympia, 30; Port Townsend, 40; Grays Harbor country, 60; and other smaller towns take altogether about 100 more. Well, to estimate it roughly there must be a total of 900 head used in Western Washington per week." "Where does it come from principally?" "Everywhere. From the little farms and from the big o...

2 HO^TICUIiTU^E. ADVICE TO SPRAYERS. The Oregon Experiment Station sends out the following advice to orchardists as to work for this and following months: September—Give last spraying for codling moth to Bald wins and other late varieties this month. To insure good results every spraying must be thorough, and an even dis tribution of the poison over this fruit must be received. Some orchardists go so far as to spray every ten or twelve days during the summer for the codling moth. Such ener gy is very commendable and probably brings better returns than fewer sprayings, albeit the labor and expense is much greater. Before rains begin, burn all rubbish about orch ards and about the farm generally, in corners, along fence rows, that no good place be left for insects to hibernate in. Do not pile green cord wood alongside of orchards; you are likely to thereby bring into the vicinity of your fruit trees pests which, if left in the forest, would not injure you. October—Put away spray pump,...

CLOVER AND CPUI>C grass ..... ■r>rii%i/r> A full and complete stock, of choicest quality and right prices, at the only exclusive seed house on the Coast. Address: E. J. BOWEN, Seattle, Wash. pipe that led from the furnace to the brick flue that was built above was affected by the cold and wet atmosphere, so that the smoke condensed to creosote, and this was filling the pipes in the hot air chamber, and also leaking at every joint of the exposed pipe, which he had noticed with surprise, as no such happening was ever seen before. This, he showed us, was sufficient to prevent a draught and to make quite a difference in the action of the furnace and generation of heat in the evaporator. At his advice we procured some asbestos paper and wrapped the 20 feet of large pipe to protect it from the chill of the atmosphere. The asbestos paper that we used was no thicker than ordinary wrapping paper, but the effect was electrical. Immediately the draught improved, and the fruit commence...

4 VALUE OF GOOD BLOOD. BY WM. A. CONANT. It is an old saying, generally adopted by good farmers, that if a thing is worth doing it is worth doing well. Why not apply this maxim to the selection and rearing of animals? True, it costs mora in the outset, but is it not the wisest and best in the end? It costs no more for the man who has a reasonably comfortable place for his stock, and plenty of good feed to feed it out to No. 1, high grade, or better, pure bred stock than to ordinary mongrel or scrub stock. Bait there is a vast difference in the value of the various grades besides the pleasure of owning and caring for a good animal. Now let us figure a little and note the difference. The good Short Horn, at 2V£ years old, will weigh 1,600 pounds, worth 4 cents per pound, equalling $64. The native mongrel, equally well kept, will weigh 1,400 pounds at the same age, and sells from 3 cents to 3*4 cents, making from $42 to $45.50 for the same labor and feed. The scrub is away down; 1,200 ...

JVHSCELiIiANEOUS. HOEING YOUR OWN ROW. A homely phrase, suggestive of patient work under broil ing sun a hand-to-hand conflict with the soil; the secondary meaning is that of persistent, energetic and steady perform ance of duty. It may not be pleasant; very probably there is something else going on which you would much more enjoy; perhaps you are tired, and this drudgery is obscure and you will get no thanks for it. Nevertheless you have it to do; it is your task; you must hoe your own row. Having begun, you must persevere until you have reached the appointed conclusion of your particular stint. Nobody else can do your share; you must do it yourself. A sort of Spartan indifference to mere comfort and con venience, and a Puritan sense of responsibility, a very com monplace, but nevertheless very admirable virtue, are all, more or less implied in the everyday accomplishment of an everyday task in the careful hoeing of your row. Perhaps you live with uncongenial people, who constantly...

6 THE DAlfiY. STRIPPINGS. BY M. L. MATTERSON. The cool weather which came in as August went out al most made the cows smile. Govern the bull gently, yet firmly, and he is less apt to become your foe. An "over" feed is nearly as injurious to the calves as is an "under" feed. The cream should be from 60 to 64 degrees F. according to circumstances, when it is put in the churn. We are often cautioned not to overwork the boy or the colt. The same rule applies to butter. If you sell cream to the creamery keep it just as clean as if you were going to churn and market it yourself. In butter making much depends upon the quality of the salt you use. Get the best every time. Whether you keep one cow or twenty it is necessary to study your surroundings to make the most of what you have. Sister Lee says that although it is quite necessary to keep cool when a bee stings you yet it is hard to do. It is the same thing when the cow kicks you. Professor James W. Robertson of Guelph, Ontario, hit the ...

INFLUENCE OF SEED UPON CROP. Years and years ago wise men who studied common things and worked in the great laboratory of nature began improv ing a scrafny dwarf, the head of which contained a grain or two of wheat, and by the most careful and skillful hybridiz ing, selection and cultivation lifted the plant by successive steps, first, to the head containing from six to a dozen grains; then a step higher to the spelt; another step to the Polish wheat (sometimes called giant rye), and finally through skill ful breeding and selection to the full wheat in the ear as we have it in the best varieties today. Through the delicate process of cross-fertilization and the careful selection and propagation of sports, new varieties are being yearly added to the list, though it takes more than one year's selection to thoroughly establish valuable traits. Our best varieties having been thus brought to a high and, we might say, artificial degree of perfection, it is not to be wondered at that under...

IO THE piiOCKS. NEW YORK WOOL EXCHANQE. Boston has always been looked upon as the recognized wool center of America. But there has been a formidable combination formed in New York city which now operates immense wool sales. Here is the report of the second auc tion sale, held Wednesday of last week: Long before the sale began every seat on the exchange floor was assigned to prospective buyers, and Secretary A. W. Lightbourn has his hands full trying to squeeze in a few more chairs for those whose applications came in late. More than a quarter of the floor space had been given to Boston buyers, who realize that their city has been beaten in its own field by New York. That the Boston dealers in wool on commission will lose heavily by the already achieved success of the New York exchange is undoubted, but New York will gain a great volume of trade. Among the lots sold were fine, medium and quarter Mon tanas, fine and medium spring Texas, three-eighths and one half blood, bright unwashe...

12 BUZZINGS. BY MRS. CHAS. LEE. Decrease the size of the entrance of your house, now that the honey flow is over, so as not to let the robbers get a start. If all the cake, and aill other cooked sweets were banished from the table, and nature"s own sweet honey substituted therefore, I believe it would add to the health, happiness and longevity of the nation.—Dr. Miller. Propolis is now getting to be a little stiff and hard, and it is sometimes a difficult matter to separate the super from the hive. One of the best things for this purpose is a large screw driver A strong, narrow chisel works well, too. Gleaning is again agitating the Langstroth monumental fund It is a worthy cause, and every bee keeper should be willing to give something.

THE fIIRHKETS. Fruit sales in all lines are dull. Cool, cloudy weather is checking demand to some extent. Again market gardeners and orchardists near the Sound cities are supply very largely the wants of families by ped dling out their produce. The retail stores are, many of them, also supplied in this manner. L<ack of jars is hurting the market worst of all. A car of Cape Cod cranberries is due in Seattle tomorrow. No demand for plums, prunes or watermelons. There is some demand for muskmelons at $1.00 crate. The most of those coming are very poor. Butter advanced 2 cents Monday, and is now up to 24 cents.

14 FORAGE PLANTS. Prof. Thomas Shaw, in an address on this topic recently, said: "No country has been more highly favored than ours in the variety of forage crops that can be grown and in the variety of the conditions for growing them. The name of these crops is legion. To treat them all would mean a book. "You may take up rape and cabbage; rape only can be considered here, although cabbage furnishes a most wonder ful late autumn pasture for sheep. In 1890, when not more than 500 pounds of rape seed was sold in one year in the United States, 1 had the hardihood to say that the day would yet come when 10,000,000 sheep and lambs would be fattened on it every year in this republic. Some of us here tonight will yet live to see that glorious consummation. Why, there are good reasons for believing that 100,000 acres of rape are growing in the United States tonight, and that 1,000,000 sheep and lambs are now feeding upon it, or will do so be fore the season is over. "The common cereals mus...
