Ranch and Range. Old Birih, Vol. 4, No. 8.1 git \TTT TT W A QTT nfTOHFR 7 IRQ 7 New Series, Vol. l, No. 27. f biiiAl AMI., UUIUJJJi.Iv /, iftJ/. RIVERTON'S JERSEYS. Riverton Farm is located charmingly in the suburbs of Spokane, on the bank of the beautiful river from which the city takes its name. The writer was a guest at Riverton farm a few weeks ago and had an opportunity to inspect the herd of finely-bred animals of which Dilworth Brothers are so justly proud. It was a pleasure to look over the collection, representing some of as fine dairy types as may be found in the North west. The photo-engraving on this page is of the head of the herd and represents an animal of remarkable breeding. Scribe 22373 is a son of Diploma 16219, sire of 33 tested cows making over 14 lbs. butter in seven days, including Merry Maiden, champion cow of all three tests combined against all breeds, World's Fair Dairy Tests. Diploma was sired by Combination 4389, sire of 25 tested cows. Scribe's dam was ...

2 more cows of similar breeding, and about 20 heifers and heifer calves, that show that they have been well cared for, and with their breeding should add to the good reputation already enjoyed by the Riverton Jersey dairy. The Riverton dairy supplies a select class of customers in Spokane with milk and cream at fancy prices. They al ways secure a premium from the products of their dairy and have built up an enviable trade at gilt-edge prices. A visit to Riverton farm by lovers of fine stock will be a most enjoyable treat by those who are attending the present Spokane fruit fair. IS SUMHER FALLOW A FALLACY? In the issue of August sth of RANCH AND RANGE there appeared an article by Prof. Balmer, of the Pullman Experiment Station, written in the nature of a reply to the question asked by Hon. H. S. Blanford, of Walla Walla: "Is Summer Fallow a Fallacy?" Prof. Balmer's answer was a very fine treatise and explained very clearly his rea sons for concluding that summer fallowing was a prac...

wheat on the snow and report their success in RANCH' AND RANGE. They will be surprised at the results I think. Such exchange of thoughts and experiments will help a good many of us to do better in our farm work. Such years as this we can all get along pretty well, but we may need lots more knowledge than we have to make ends meet in years we do not have as much rain as we have had this. JOHN L. SMITH, Hazelwood Farm, Spokane. Geo. M. Beasley, a buyer, is shipping from Pendleton 20,000 head of lambs. He paid an average price for them of $1.50 per head. Some of the principal ones who sold were Weston & Bean, Weston & Regan, the First National Bank of Pendleton, Fred F. Lent, Guderian Bros., J. B. Smith, A. S. LeGrow, K. Jensen. These sheep will be deliv ered at St. Paul and fed for the Chicago market. According to the German investigator Wolff 1,000 lbs. of growing cattle require 13.9 lbs. of digestible nutrients for their proper subsistence. One thousand pounds of sheep weigh...

4 THRIFTY VINELAND. BY W. G. GAUNCE, In southeastern Washington, opposite to Lewiston, Ida ho, in Lewiston Valley, at the confluence of the Snake and Clearwater rivers, a new interest has been growing, quietly, unostentatiously, substantially, without any of the boom features of so many Western enterprises. Here where 14 months ago was an unwatered, arid block of land, where 12 months ago were no homes, are to be found today an hundred buildings, mostly homes, where hopeful, happy people cultivate the reclaimed land. Nice cottages have sprung up as if by magic, tens of thousands of fruit trees have been planted, water has been brought many miles and courses streets and gardens, shade trees have been planted, and everything says that Vineland, for so the colony is called, is building permanently. Six miles <up Asotin creek the water is taken and con veyed 19 miles to the company's lands. Sixteen miles of laterals have been built for distribution purposes. The company own 3,200 acr...

the settlement was so rapid and of such an intelligent class of people, that a school of 60 pupils was maintained through the past winter. The present fall term of the two schools begins with over a hundred. Before another win ter comes a four-room brick school house will have been erected in a central locality. A flourishing Sunday school ih" maintained, and the people who have settled here have given further pledge of their habits and principles by seek ing this spot upon which to erect homes defending from unhappy influences by a provision in their deeds and water rights forever prohibiting the saloon. The question of a substantial town springing up here is only one of time. The needs of the people and the sur rounding country will demand it. The water power at hand will bring labor employing industries. This will prove the secondary concern of the promoters, their first being a happy, prosperous, self-sustaining colony. They recognize the fact that the cultivation of the soil is...

6 WHITMAN COUNTY FAIR. [Report bj our special representative.] Whitman county fair opened September 28th under un favorable auspices, but things brightened up very much later. The rain on that day hindered the exhibits some what from being brought to the fair. The weather im proved very much later as also did the crowd. A large at tendance was present on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The exhibit of fruit was quite large and was excellent in quality. Other counties will need to hustle to surpass Whitman county at the Spokane fair. Poultry was the next best department. J. Scott and M. Still, both of Colfax, had the best exhibit in this department. They tied for first prize for collection of thoroughbred chickens. Mr. Scott also received two first prizes and two second. Mr. Still took two first premiums on his Silver Laced Wyandottes. That prize-winning Wyandotte cock was especially worthy of mention. It was a finely formed bird. Those were fine fowls, that trio of White Wyandottes be...

CONVICT-MADE GRAIN SACKS. The principal wheat exporters of this county verify the statement made in our issue of two weeks ago that peni tentiary made sacks of the United States will not be allowed to pass through English ports. They have issued circulars warning buyers not to use such sacks because they will be rejected and the cost of re-sacking charged up to the ship per using them. No explanation has been made for this discrimination against the penitentiary-made sacks, but of course it is to protect British interests, and it is therefore unsafe to ship wheat in such sacks when they have to go through British ports. Exporters have also sent out the following circular which will be of interest to farmers: "We wish to advise you that having forwarded samples of all kinds of Red wheat to Liverpool, we have just re ceived advice covering the same. Heretofore we have been accepting on Bluestem contracts and on Bluestem prices Red Winter wheat, and have been accepting a» Club and on C...

Subscription (In advance) $1.00 per year MILLER FREEMAN Editor Address all communications to 634-535 Pioneer block, Seattle, Wash. Branch office at North Yakima, Wash. As the winds blow cold and send the forest leaves scurry ing to the ground; as the chill blasts make our little homes seem cozy and the humble hearthstone fire gives out its cheering warmth, we who have not gone to Klondike and have beeni considering ourselves indeed unfortunate for having been compelled by force of circumstances to remain at home, begin to feel less and less envious of the thousands now struggling over mountain passes in their wild scram ble for the magic gold. It would be impossible to foretell the amount of suffer...

A SONG OF HARVEST. Sing a song of harvest— sing it, ring it sweet; Set it to the music of the ripple of the wheat! Sweetheart, sweetheart, Reaping as we go, A kiss amid the music And the wheat would never know. Sing a song of harvest —sing it, ring it true! Symphonies of sunlight and mysteries of dew; Sweetheart, sweetheart, Summer sighs to go; A kiss amid the music And the wheat would never know. Sing a song of harvest—of many a golden tithe; Set it to the tinkle and the twinkle of the scythe; Sweetheart, sweetheart, Love's reaper, too; Love is the music And the thrilling heart of you. Sing a song of harvest like the ripple of a stream; Till the shadows kiss the meadows and the stars above us dream; Sweetheart, sweetheart, Summer sighs to go; A kiss amid the music And the wheat would never know. It is said that the hop yard of G. C. Mitchell, in Selah dis trict, turned out the finest quality of hops of any in the Yakima valley. He has 20 acres, and did not pick until the hops were ...

IO ROTTING OF PRUNES. J. B. Powles hands us the following article written by H. E. Dosch for the Oregonian, with the suggestion that its publication would be of great interest to our growers: Hillsdale, Or., Sept. 27.—T0 the Editor: Herewith permit me to hand you a letter just received. In view of the im portant matter therein contained regarding one of our best fruit industries, and as similar reports have reached me from prunegrowers elsewhere, I kindly ask you to give it space: "Portland. Or., Sept. 22.— H. E. Desch, Esq., Hillsdale, Or. -Dear Sir: We are having a great many reports come to us that Italian prunes have rotted in transit, arriving at the other end of the line in bad condition. This is not the cause of the low market wholly, as that was undoubtedly caused by oversupply in the hands of irresponsible parties, without facilities for protecting the shippers' interests. This ques tion of rotting in Italian prunes is, nevertheless, a very serious one, as it entirely upset...

CHAS. LEE. Avoid as much as possible, stirring and dipping into ex tracted honey. It is quite apt to make it granulate prema turely. The honey crop of the Pacific northwest for this season will not exceed % of a crop to the experienced bee-keeper, and to the amature, nothing. "Years ago 'I did a great deal of dividing, but must say that doubling up gives me more satisfaction." M. A. Gill, Gleanings, Beginners take note of the above item; it con tains one of the secrets of successful beekeeping. When planting out shade trees, why not look to useful ness as well as ornament? It takes no more space for a basswood or locust to grow than it does a maple, elder or poplar. The latter are of no use, only as shade trees, while the former bears valuable nectar-producing bloom, on which the bees w...

12 A CHAHPION OF PURE BLOOD. In "RANCH A.ND RANGE" issue of September 23rd last, Wm. A. Conant writes pointedly, under caption of "Value of Good Blood," upon the importance of raising high grade cattle and swine, in order to produce the "choicest meat" and "best sellers in market." He concludes right fully, that the best is none too good and is cheapest in the long run. Permit me to suggest that his line of argument is as applicable to the breeding of poultry as to other live stock. The place of the American Hen, as a factor in the pro duction of wealth, is underestimated by the Washington farmer. When we consider that each year there is import ed into this state over half a million dollars worth of poul try products, and in addition the vastly greater value of what is produced here, we begin to realize that the chick en business, even in Washington, is not an insignificant enterprise. Granting then the importace of the industry, why is it that our farmers do not produce the poultry...

REVIEW OF FRUIT PESTS. BY W H. BROWN From the fact of your journal being devoted largely to the horticultural interests of this and other states, I take the liberty of asking you to publish a fey thoughts pertain ing to the great future that awaits this, the greatest fruit belt in the known world. Perhaps the reader may think this view of this matter greatly exaggerated; if so, from the fact of the writer being Fruit Inspector for King county and port, let me ask you to take a stroll with me in a visionary way in my daily rounds among commission houses, fruit stands, orchards, etc. After he or she has seen, as I have, strawberries as large as walnuts, plums weighing from five to nine ounces, apples ranging in size from a large marble to that of a medium sized cocoanut, with other fruits such as pears, peaches, prunes and all the small fruit family keeping equal pace in size and quality with those already mentioned, methinks the reader as well as the writer will be led to exclaim "Wa...

Richer than Klondike IF you could get it every year. Or 70 cent wheat, or 50 cent wheat every year, would make your hill ranch profitable. BUT you don't get either figure more than one year in five.

Great success the first year with corn, berries, sweet potatoes, peanuts and all vegetables; orchards and vine yards are developing wonderfully on scores of fine two to ten acre places. Winter temperature twenty (20) degrees warmer than your hill ranch. Best of SCHOOLS. Regular church services. Easy payments for lands. Low taxes. Pure water at every door. Many families from the hill ranches are making homes in Vineland on account of the schools and pleasant winter climate while keeping and working the ranches.
