IO MisGGllaq<3ous. EFFECT OF SHEEP LAW. Wiil Injure Oregon Sheepmen's Business Very Seriously. The sheep bill, p(is?e«l by I lie Washing* ton legislature to keep Oregon sheep out. of this slate, seems to be growing more in favor with Klirkitat stockmen. They say the'grass'of Klickitat belong* to tlie citizens of the county and not to the householders and citizens of Oregon. An individual who seems to be posted on the county's revenue says: "The great tax talked of as tiling received from our neighbors is ail 'moonshine,' for more than half the number of migratory sheep escape taxation, and what tax. is collect ed usually is by the most riilllgent effort on the part of the sheriff, tit a great ex pense to the county, as the sheepmen usually try to evade the officer, and some times by stealth and in the night drives have been known to got by certain sta tions of lookout.

Irrigation- THE BEST IRRIGATING SYSTEM. Most Advantageous Methods of Water ing Various Northwestern Crops. 15V A. B. DLOI NT. How water should lie put Itp.ili Hie crops is a problem as difflcult to solve as lhatuf knowing when to pnt It on the different crops. There are many ways of distributing water, among which the a ost approved and best are those known as flooding, iii furrow*, and sub-irriga lion. la arid climates where there is not rainfall sufficient to produce a crop, the turrow system is best to be used on all crops, bet ause it conserves the water and never allows it to cover the roots of plants too long at one time.

12 Ths Hpiary. ALFALFA HONEY. A Correspondent of Gleanings Praises Its Good Qualities-One Feature Against It. IJY X <\ UTKEN. The quality of this honey is very good. My experience is I lint it is fully t lie equal of white clover in respect to color, though some from other states or else where report it as amber in color. Pos sibly soil or other conditions have to do with color; but my opinion is that the great hulk of it is while. In body it is very heavy. It frequently ; -heconV'S so very thick arid tenacious that it can not be successfully extracted unless nX a tem perature of nearly DO decrees F. In flavor it is quite mild. There is an en tire absence of that sharp twang peculiar to white clover. Many people who could not eat honey in the east are very fond of alfalfa, and eat it with no evil effect*. It is a rare tiling to find one who dislikes the alfalfa flavor if he likes honey at all and very many will eat it who would not eat other honeys. Now, while the body, color, an...

Whs Moras. CARE IN DRAFT-HORSE BREEDING. BY PETER BAY. I believe no branch of slock breeding at the present time requires more atten tion than the raising of draft horses. We ought all to know there will be a de mand for draft horses as long as the world lasts. Every year is bringing more demand. All kinds of labor is learning the value of the noble draft horse, but I cannot see where they are going lo find them. Take the country all through, and there does not begin to be half enough big mares on the farms to raise draft horses for this country. lam safe in saying there are mt half the number of good big mares working on farrrs that there were five years ago. If jou ask the farmer what has he done with that team of draft mares he had he will tell you he sold them because they wne the only ones the horse buyer wanted. I notice this country raises more scrubs than good horses. That all arises from improper care while they were yonnsr. No matter how good the dam and sii\s may be. the ...

A reporter called the other day at the office of Lilly, Bogardus & Co., Seattle, a firm which handles a very large part of the grain and hay shipped into that city. Mr. Ed. F. Bogardus was present, and very kindly consented to talk a little while for the benefit of our readers. "What is the prospect for a market for hay in vSeattle this year?" was asked. "It would be difficult to make a prediction," was the reply. "It all depends on what kind of a winter we have. You see the feeding season Warehouses and Docks of Lilly, Bogardus & Co., (Inc.) Seattle, Wash. last winter commenced in November and contin ued until way into March. This made five solid mouths of feeding. Western Oregon had a short crop and had to buy from as.

There is something strange, how ever, in the fact that people are some what prejudiced against the wild bay raised over there, although it is of very good quality and stock do well on it. It is simply a notion that has been very generally taken up." "Are not the farmers learning to put their hay up in better shape than they used to?" "Yes; there is some improve ment noticed. One of the greatest com plaints we have to make is the fact that they allow it to become exposed too much to the weather and bleach out. This gives it a very bad appearance. We not infrequently find in a car half a dozen bales that are damaged. Then after it is baled many neglect, in piling it, to raise it above the ground. Those •bales resting on the damp ground be come spoiled, but they send them just the same. Now there is no need of this loss and it is just as easy for a fanner to ship his hay into market in good shape. It will pay them to take just as much pains...

4 Horticulture. NUT CULTURE IN THE NORTHWEST. Personal Experience of the Treasurer of the Oregon Board of Horticulture. 15Y HENRY E. DOfcCll There are two kinds of trees that have v specif.l charm for me. One is the lord ly pine and the other the royul walnut. Though a great lover of all nature and admirer of all trees, these two stand head and shoulder aboye '.hem all in my hum ble estimation. He who never wandered among the pines, inhaling the fragrance of its needle and invigorating ozone, and he who has never listened, while repos ing in its shade, to the whispering spirits in its topmost branches—so soothing to the soul—has mined one of the great pleasures given to mankind My an all wise Providence; while the royal walnut in its grandeur, its strength, its Inspiring nature, is ennobling and elevating, and imparts a warm, inviting and dignified appearance to any hoineplace. Wher ever you .see a walnut tree in a doorysird you may rest assured that warir. hearts dwell within, and ...

best. If the tree did not require a lap root you may be assured Nature would not have put one there. If it were not for the retrogalion of the walnut when planted from seed, I would advise the planting of the nut where ihe tree is to grow; but as we are told by those who have made walnut culture a life study that but few varieties will prove true to seed, we -are compelled to buy the trees from those who grow them from grafted one?, or, as they are called, second gen eration trees, which are grown from the nuts of the original grafted storks As stated before, one must have a loye for walnut culture to make it a success. The beautiful valley in which you are lo cated seems to me the very ideal place for walnut culture. Your rolling hills and slopes seem especially adapted for it. and there is no trood reason why we should not raise at least all the nuts used in the Pacific Northwest. Remem ber you have a large territory to supply. Those of you who were here in the days of old and dny...

EDITORIAL NOTES. We are glad to note that the Walla Walla Statesman npoits a gratifying air of prosperity in that bei mifid little city, as shown by numerous new buildings and the improvements of homes, roads, etc. If the science of irrigation were care fully studied by our farmers, the yield of their crops would be doubled, while (heir work would be greatly decreased. It nn additional amount of work was put into the preparation of land before cultiva tion by proper grading and leveling, the increase in crops and saving in labor and worry would be beyond conception. This expenditure of moi.ey and labor in pre paratory woi l returns a very Urge per* centage. The spirit that animates the citizens of Seattle is the same that has built up Chi cago and other important cilicp. if they want an army post or Lake Washington canal, all political or commercial jealousies are forgotten f"r the tune, and one spirit dominates all citizens. When the fire of 1889 wiped out all the business part of ...

Hgriaulturs. SUGAR BEET CULTURE. The Way They Manage to "Breed Up" Sugar Beets. We extract the following from Bulletin No. 75, on beet sugar production, from the Ohio Experiment Station : "Plugs are taken from roots having the desired form and size in such a way ns not to injure them seriously, and ihe juice of the plugs is analyzed to determe the sugar. Those which are satisfactory are planted the following spring to pro duce seed. The seed thus secured is planted and the beets resulting are again analyzed, as before, and only the best chosen. This process is repeated for sev eral years, when finally, all of the seed grown is turned over to the farmers for producing beets to be consumed by the factory. The best beets so carefully se lected for seed are called "mother beets.' Millions of dollars, literally, have been expended in scientific study of the beet root, with the wonderful result above noted. All of this care and selection re sults in making the beet root one of the most ar...
