26 WHY HE AND BILL QUIT. "Bill thought it was time to quit, and so did I," said Adam Klinefelt, a Pine Creeker, who is a husbandman by the day during haying and harvest time, and a bark peeler and bear hunt er during the rest of the year. "And so we quit. "Some folks might think we was a little partic'lar, but what do you think of hay that runs two snakes to the ton? I've heerd sence that it ain't much of an average for the Big Root medders, but it struck me as bein' fair to middlin', and so it did Bill. "Me and Bill calc'late that we cut jest about ten ton o' hay on the Big Root medders. We don't have to cal c'late on the snakes. We had 'em right before us, and we counted 'em. And this is the way they happened: "Take the first one. I was mowing along, and a pilot dipped his teeth agin my boot leg. I stomped his head off in three kicks. That was one. "Then there was the yoop that Bill give and jumped two yards off to one side. That yoop stood for a black snake that lay with its head...

3° A FRAUD EXPOSED. Agents who claim they are repres enting reliable houses in Portland and Seattle are working a clever scheme to defraud the ranchers. Their game is to introduce them selves as representing a certain com pany, and solicit orders for tea, coffees, spices, etc. After the agent has obtained a good ly supply of orders he returns to the city to have them filled. As a matter of fact he has been sent out by an un scrupulous house to sell their goods un der a special brand. These goods are of such inferior and adulterated stuff as to be unfit for hu man consumption. The orders for coffee are filled at a wholesale oost of 13 cents a pound — the rancher paying 35 cents per pound —a profit of 22 cents on every pound or |5.50 for every 25 pound order. Or ders for spices and extracts are filled in like proportion. It is an easy graft to work for there are always people who have a foolish old fashioned notion that they are be ing overcharged by the local merchant of his town, an...

THE RANCH . Vol. XX. No. 19. THE KRISTOFERvSON DAIRY Inception and Development of the Kristo ferson Dairy. I was born in a dairying community of Sweden, which, you may know, is one of the most progressive of all countries in that industry. Following the usual custom of the sons of well-to-do farmers, I took a course at an agricultural and dairy college after finishing school. Even at that time so many years ago, we were taught concern ing the care of cows and milk, that which is only beginning to be practiced by the more ; progressive farmers in this country. During our short residence in Seattle when we first came to this State, nearly fourteen years ago, we learned, from annoy ing experience, that in most of the dairy products procurable at that time, quality, the great essential, was lacking. On one occasion my wife wished to entertain friends, and engaged cream of her milkman I cheerfully endorse the methods of the Kristoforson Dairy in the care ful preparation and pasteurizatio...

J FUNGUS DISEASE IN FRUIT TREES. Col. Henry B. Dotch, of Oragon, at the irii^Miion Cnngrw, Salt Lake. .lust 40 years ago our mutual friend, Senator Fred .1. Kiesel, of your city, and myself, first landed in this valley, alter a two months' tramp across the plains, or what was then known as the Great American desert. Coming out of Emigrant Canyon our eyes feasted on the beautiful fields and gardens which itretched out before us, a verit able oasis in the desert. It was the first Mormon settlement, a picture of peace, happiness, contentment and plenty, which will ever remain green and fresh in our memories, while the surrounding foothills and plateaus were covered with sagebrush and greasewood. There was scarcely any grass that stock could feed upon; the home of the rattlesnake and jack rabbit. We wondered then what all this country was wasted for, little dream ing what wealth and plant food was stored away in this parched soil, awaiting the brawn and brain and genial of man, to conve...

4 •••••••••••••••••••••••••• • FARMERS INSTITUTE • AT GREY'S RIVER ; * Qy our Staff Correspondent. • The first "Farmers' Institute" in Walikiakuin County was hold at Greys River, Friday and Saturday, Sept 18 and 19. The instructors were Prof. N. O. Booth, horticulturist, and Prof. W. H. Lawrence, botanist of the State Experiment Station, and C. U Smith, of Minnesota. The settlement at Greys River is located in a narrow valley about 15 miles northeast of Astoria, and at the head of navigation on Greys river. They have a daily boat to and from Astoria, which is their market for farm produce. There is fine timber on the mountains on either side of the valley where a large amount of logging is being done, and the camps provide a considerable market for farm produce. The cli mate is mild and the rainfall abund ant. The lands in the valley are very fertile and easy of cultivation. All the clovers and grasses grow luxur iantly, and produce abundant crops of hay. Until within a few years ha...

S HOW TWO FARMERS ; I AGHIEVED SUCCESS } S By C. L. Smith S Mr. H. P. Ahlberg is a Scandinav ian, who has been in the country 30 years, 28 of which has been spent on his present farm. He had a liberal education, a fair knowledge and ex perience as a gardener, good health, but ko money. For fifteen years he de voted more attention to gardening and general farming than to stock, but the results were not satisfactory. His attention was directed to dairy ing by the example of his friend and neighbor, Chris. Sorenson. He got to gether a small herd of cows of mixed breed and varying capacity for dairy work. Mr. Ahlberg, however, applied himself diligently to the study of dairy literature, purchased a separ ator anrt a Babcock test. He began weighing and testing the milk of each individual cow. Careful records were kept and the unprofitable cows were weeded out. He studied the character and;type of the profitable cows and in making purchases to replace those sent to the butcher he endeavor...

6 Keeping Farm Accounts By PROP. P. 11. MacLAREN. Assistant Principal of Acme Business College, Seattle. Preface. I have no apology to offer for placing this little treatise before the public. Any one who does business should keep a correct record of that business. Farmers, as a class, have been accused of doing business in a slovenly way but, as a rule, they have a good excuse for doing so. It is an easy matter for those who have had no experience in farm work to philosophize on what the farmer might, could, or should do, but the man who knows most about farming—in his mind —is one who could not tell a hay-rack from a corn-husker if he met either of them in the dark. The chief difficulty hitherto has been to get some simple method by means of which a farmer can keep track of his business transactions in a methodical way with the least trouble and with the smallest possible outlay of time. Elaborate systems of bookkeeping have no place in the business of the ordinary small farmer an...
