Ranch and Range. BftiSJ2^:};BS:*B:} Seattle, wash., October h, 1897. SPOKANE FRUIT FAIR. We might as well begin our account of the Spokane Fruit Fair by saying that it was a success —a great success —and follow it up by making the positive assertion that it was the grandest succcess of any exposition ever held in the North west. It was conducted on strikingly original lines and its divergence from the conduct so general with agricul tural fairs only tended to increase its popularity. It was a dollar show for 15 cents—and everybody went, not once nor twice, but every day, morning, afternoon and evening. An immense frame and can vas structure, covering a big part of a block right in the heart of the city, held the exhibits. Fifteeen cents paid the way of each man, woman and youngster, and was the only charge. Fine music and catchy specialties entertained the crowds. All the Inland Empire threw off the cares of life for the The above is im illustration of a I'ure-bred Poland China lioa...

2 from seed brought to this coast by Missionary Spaulding, who came with Rev. Marcus Whitman in the year 1836, and were planted in 1837. The largest tree is over 40 feet high and 15 feet in circumference at its butt. The Lewiston exhibit occupied the space on the left soon after passing through the entrance, being 20 feet wide by 80 feet long, and is one of the most artistic displays of fruit made at the fair. Great credit is due Commissioner Wessels and wife for the artistic and decorative arrangement of the same. First is seen a pyramid of grains and vegetables, whose smoothness and enormous size astonish, and excite the admiration of all beholders. A water melon is here ex hibited weighing 76 pounds, which was grown in the yard df Arthur Stacy, who lives in the residence part of the city of Lewiston. Wheat, flax, oats, barley, buckwheat, and in fact, all of the cereals are here shown. And from the prize tickets at tached one is led to believe they are not easily duplicated, Next ...

by Miss Ballou, his daughter, and S. A. Miller, one of the firm conducting the Milton nursery. Among the features specially worthy of notice were samples of four cuttings of alfalfa secured this season from on plot of sub-irrigated ground, averaging in length two and one-half feet, and the assurance was given that another crop would be secured this season. Some beautiful specimens of onions were shown, and they soon displayed the blue cards denoting that they had captured the first prize. The first premium was also captured on yellow Dent corn, barley and the biggest sweet pumpkin; also a number of firsts on fruits. Certainly Uma tillla county could not have sent any more active represen tatives to place and explain its display than the three headed by Mr. Ballou. This gentleman was conceded to be one of the most interesting and instructing of any of those on the grounds, and every visitor was given a clear conception of the section, which is regarded as one of the most prolific and...

4 being twenty feet high. Bushel sacks of wheat, canned fruit, pine cones and bearded heads of wheat ornamented the bottom of the pyramid. The last stand had a large sheaf of oats in the center with a huge sickle of wheat suspended over it. Around the center piece were arrranged crows, larks, pigeons, squirrels, etc., and wheat in straw and in sacks. At the south end of the stand were several pieces of excellent white pine timber. Several men of experience told us they believed this timber to be stronger and more valuable than the Michigan pine. It has a finer, stronger grain. It is claimed that there are many millions of feet of this lumber there, many of the trees being eight feet in diameter and 100 feet to the first branch. Suspended above this timber was a beautiful elk's head with large branching horns. To the left on entering the door was part of the exhibit of squashes, beets, turnips, pumpkins, etc., some of which were of a very large size considering the fact that they wer...

REPORT OF HORTICULTURAL BOARD. We have at hand the third biennial report of the Washing ton State Board of Horticulture. It contains some very good information. The late Hon. D. M. Jessee, member of the board from Walla Walla district, is honored with a repro duction of his photograph. It is shown that for the time in tervening between April, 1895, and October, 1896, the ex penses of the board amounted to $4,892.38. The reports from the different districts are all of an encouraging nature, and show that all over the state horticulture is progressing along the right lines. Prof. J. A.

STRIPPINOS. By M. L. Matterson As the days grow shorter the need of artificial light in creases, and the newspapers will contain accounts of barns destroyed by fire. Every dairyman in the state should work for a state fair next fall. It is none too early to begin the work now. What we want is a fair, and not a political show. When an agent offers you a churn that will bring the but ter in two minutes just call the dog, for if he really has a churn that will accomplish such a thing you don't want it, as it would spoil the butter. There are a set of "sharks" sellling a preparation over the country which they claim will increase the yield of butter. There is only a certain per cent, of butter in the cream, and any preparation that increases it simply solidifies a portion of* the butter milk, and consequently is an injury. Every dairyman should keep hogs enough to consume all the surplus skim and butter milk he has. Your profits may all be in what you are now throwing away. Too many Was...

MODERN METHODS OF CULTIVATION. Palouse creamery now offers 23 cents per pound for butter fat. This is the highest price ever paid there and prospects are that it will go still higher this winter. Hops sold this week in the Willamette valley, Or., for 15c. According to the last census we grow in the United States in round numbers, Corn 72,000,000 acres Wheat 33,000,000 " Oats 28,000,000 " Rye 2,000,000 " Barley 3,000,000 " Cotton 20,000,000 " Total 158,000,000 " making a total of 158,000,000 acres of land under cultivation. The vastness of this area, together with its economic im portance is sufficient excuse for devoting a few minutes to day to the discussion of methods of tillage. ■Before entering directly upon the subject let us review briefly some of the reasons for tillage. Why is it essential? Generally speaking tillage does two things: Kills weeds and stirs the soil. Weeds are injurious because they consume plant food and to that extent rob crops; they shade the soil and have ...

IO The draft should be applied along a straight line extend ing from the point of attachment on the horse's collar through the point of attachment at the bridle of the plow to the center of draft on the mold board. If the hitch is made too high or too low this line will not be straight and there will be loss of force. Dynamometer tests indicate no difference in draft, on level ground, between walking and wheeled plows, the latter carrying a man. The reason for this in creased efficiency is that the wheels convert sliding friction into rolling friction. The weight in the riding plow is car ried by the wheels instead of by the bottom of the furrow. A wagon of given weight pulls easier over an earth road than a sled of the same weight. In going up hill draft is greater in riding plows because of the extra weight that must be lifted to the height of the rise. The ideal farm hand will walk up hill and ride down. The adjustment of wheeled plows is different from that of walking plows. Wit...

The Lubin is probably one of the most per fect pulverizing instruments that has been invented, and would undoubtedly come into general use if draft were not an object. 4. The depth to which the instrument will pulverize. Smoothing harrows, drags, etc., are good surface tools. The Acme is probably the most perfect surface pulverizer we have, while for deep pulverization the disc excels it, al though the pulverization is not so perfect. 5. The shape in which the surface is left. The greatest fault of the disc harrow is that it ridges the ground. The harrow levels the surface. In fact the smoothing harrow more often acts as a leveler than as a pulverizer. The roller and the drag differ in this, that while the roller pulverizes, it packs, and while the drag pulverizes it levels. Of course ...

on your farm it is hard to improve on the straight tooth wooden harrow made in three sections. It needs to be heavy both for effectiveness and strength. It should have handles on the outer sections, for the purpose of removing trash. When other pulverizers are used and a lighter harrow is permissable the combination straight and slanting tooth harrow made entirely or iron is to be recommended. The only advantage in the combination harrow is that it saves you from having two harrows. It has the disadvantage of being easily broken. Second, the drag. This implement is used chiefly in old, uneven, cloddy ground, where it seems to pulverize the clods and level tse surface of the ground. Third, the spring tooth harrow, consisting usually of a trap spring, is an excellent implement for deep pulverizing. It is especially valuable on heavy, stony ground, where the disc cannot be used. Fourth, the Acme harrow, consisting of a series of slant ing knives, is a perfect surface fertilizer. The ob...

14 SPRAYING FORMULAS. We publish below the various formulas for spraying or chards, as officially indorsed by the Washington State Com missioner of Horticulture. INSECTICIDES AND FUNGICIDES. Arsenical, Paris green and London purple; these two ar senicals practically take the place of all other insecticides for the biting and gnawing insects living or feeding on the ex terior of the foliage of trees and plants. London purple is not as effective as Paris green, and is apt to scald the foliage unless mixed with lime. Both these arsenicals may be used as follows: PARIS GREEN. Paris green, 1 pound; water, 160 to 200 gallons; lime, 2 to 4 pounds. First make a paste of the Paris green and lime, which should be freshly slaked, then add the water. For codlin moth and any insects which chew, as caterpillars, worms, slugs, etc. Paris green and Bordeaux mixture can be applied together with perfect safety. The action of neither is weakened, and the Paris green loses all caustic properties. LONDO...
