Ranch and Range. i^&E2:?S£!;BS:is:} Seattle, wash., October 21, 1897. QUESTIONS FOR ALFALFA RAISERS. Alfalfa is one of the greatest and most staple crops in the Northwest. An acre of land sown to alfalfa will earn more money year after year for the farmer of an irrigated district than any other crop it can be put into. It is to be depended upon and the demand is as sure as anything the farm pro duces. Alfalfa is a crop whose culture is new to many of the agriculturists of our field, and we are constantly besieged with questions for information regarding the subject. In order to satisfy this demand we have compiled the following list of questions covering the most important points upon which enlightenment is sought and will ask all those who have learned by experience the most successful methods to follow, to sit right down and write out their answers to the questions and mail them to us, so that we may publish them in the issue of November 18. 1. How many pounds of seed do you s...

2 OCTOBER BERRY BULLETIN. The condition of the berry plant at the close of the grow ing season is a certain indication of the product the follow ing year. Let us examine: Is the foliage free from rust and blight? Is the cane mature and well-ripened? Is it stocky and well supplied with strong, vigorous buds? Is it free from spot, speck and blemish? Are the roots light, fibrous and strong? Is the pith, the vital or essential part of the plant, bright, fresh and firm? If so, we are assured that with a fair season and proper winter protection, a full crop may be expected. In many localities I fear berry canes, now so promising, are greatly injured by early spring frosts, severely freezing the young shoots when but a few inches high. This injury is observed only in the pith, the life marrow being dark and shrunken a few inches above the ground, the cane above and below showing a fine vigorous growth. Canes so affected are almost certain to mature no fruit the coming season. Examine them ...

PRODUCTIVE WILBUR DISTRICT. The Wilbur Immigration Association has just issued a cute little pamphlet from which we take the following worthy notes: The first one is best of all and is undisputed evi dence that Wilbur district can produce heavily otherwise than of Friedlander's heavy weight apples. J. Erick Johnson of Wilbur was ft bachelor without means a few years ago. He engaged in fruit growing and now has a wife and seven children, an elegant fruit farm free from encumbrances and a few pieces of town property on the side. Robert Neal, of Wilbur, has sold over $5,000.00 worth of fruit from his orchard this year. His was only an average crop. Write him. A part or all of his orchard of 50 acres is for sale. Thompson Bros., of Wilbur, farmed six hundred acres of land this year (1897) and have 16,000 bushels of wheat, be sides hay enough to last all their stock through the season. J. H. Jones, of Sherman, Lincoln county, Wash., bought of the N. P. Land Co. last spring 160 acres of l...

of breeding and feeding combined. It begat early maturing powers, and these would be transmitted to the calf mentioned in the comparison. But when the demands of the system for good food and plenty of it were not met, disturbance in the equilibrium of the system followed, and the Shorthorn was left in the race. The native, being descended from an ances try with less vigorous digestive and assimilative power, could not hold his own in the race in the first instance supposed, and more than held it in the second, since there was less dis turbance produced in his system than in that of the Short horn, by withholding supplies to the extent named. We have a further illustration of the operation of this law in the transmission of what is known as quality in live stock, and more especially in animals which are beef producers. Good handling qualities are transmitted through the govern ing power of this first law of breeding. These qualities are indicated by a yielding of the skin beneath the...

6 BUZZINUS. BY .MRS. CHAS. LCC. Hawaii produces extracted honey only, which is sold in the London markets. Their beeswax, instead of being a bright yellow as it is in this country, *s white. How quickly bees notice any change in appearance at a time when forage is scarce! Set a hive in a new place, or put on an extra story, and promptly the robbers will inter view it to find the weak places, if any. I see that A. I. Root and M. H. Mendleson advocate the use of the extracting super first, to induce the bees to work above. We have been using the extracting super, same size as for comb honey, with success, the bees going up readily, and continue above, after the frames are changed to sec tions. N. E. Boomhower, in Gleanings, says that a good way to drive bees down in the super where no escape is used, is to take hold of one corner of the oilcloth and pull it loose, just so the opposite corner hangs; and by blowing smoke by the side of the cloth, at the same time flap the cloth up and d...

Full well he knows when the mortgage is due, Knows all the burdens that rest upon you, Knows how the doubt struggles hard with the prayers Over the crib of the baby upstairs.

CLOVER IN WESTERN WASHINGTON. Western Washington is the home of many varieties of clo ver, some being here before the foot of man, white man at least, trod its fertile valleys. The two varieties most com mon are the red and white, but it is principally of the red clover that we wish to speak. There are some things that are so common and easily ob tained that we do not half appreciate them or get half the good from them we might, and red clover is one of those things. In the Eastern states red clover lives but two years, that is, it is sown with some kind of grain in the spring, the next year it produces a good crop and sometimes a second. The second year there is a lighter crop and if the season is favorable two light crops, and that ends that piece of clover. The next spring there will be no clover unless it may be a few plants from self-sown seed. But in Western Washing ton it is entirely different for there is no record of the age to which clover may reach. There is one piece of ...

IO THE RAMBOUILLET. The name is ronounced rong-boo-yah, with accent on the middle syllable. They are pure Spanish Merinos, with the very same ancestry as our American families of Merinos. In 1785 Louis XVI. of France obtained the privilege of the Spanish king to purchase ten flocks. They were, in fact, ten different breeds or strains of Merinos, for the Spanish sheep had always been kept in large flocks, and the flocks entirely separate from each other. This of itself gave each flock different and distinct characteristics. Mixing the drafts from the ten Spanish flocks, the French essayed to produce a sheep superior to any of the Spanish flocks. Mat ters ran along with variable successes and failures until 1830, when the incrfeasing popularity of the English breeds in England incited the French to produce a sheep which would retain the fine, thick fleece of the Merino and com pete successfully as mutton sheep with the English breed. From that day to this the French have worked on thi...

Yineland Summer Land Gateway of Commerce Charles Francis Adams, of Boston, says of Lewiston Valley that it is " the key to the Pacific Northwest," and that the canyon of the Snake river is the railroad gateway to the ocean. Mr. Adams has won honorable fame as a far-seeing railroad man, as well as in letters and statesmanship. He compares Lewiston Valley with Salt Lake Valley, and prophesies that these two will be the future great interior distributing points of the Pacific Coast. But for the depression of '93 and after, this would already have been proven. To-day three rail roads are pointing hither, two of them but 11 and 33 miles away, and soon the rails will open to the world one of the richest sections of earth: rich in timber, gold, copper, silver, gems, marble, lime, wheat, cattle and fruit. Lewiston Valley, at the junction of the Snake and Clearwater rivers, at the head of all-year navigation, set deep among the hills, is the only broadening of the valleys at a low altitude. ...

12 PROBLEM OF THE SCRUB. At a Farmers' Institute in a Wisconsin town, in the first day's meeting, one of the speakers on dairying urged all dairymen not to keep unprofitable cows. He said that the right way to do was to weigh and test the milk of each cow through the entire year, and if at the end of the year any of his cows failed to pay a profit, they should be disposed of as soon as possible. If he would continue this weeding-out process, keeping only the best and raising only the heifer calves frm the best, he would, in a few years, have a herd that would pay a good profit, even if butter was low. The next day milk was tested with the Babcock test at the Institute, samples of which were brought in by different persons. Some of the samples tested as high as 6 per cent., but one brought in by a man whose name we have forgotten, but will call A, tested 2.7 per cent. The owners of the dif ferent cows, whose milk was tested, were questioned in re lation to their cows, as to how much ...

There is no way in which offal food can be so surely con verted into a profitable form as by giving it to pigs. The offal on a farm takes many forms, and were it not for the pig much of it would go to add to the already many wastes which occur. An old friend said he always bought his win ter's great-coat out of the proceeds of the grain which was nightly swept out of the carts during harvest time, for the quantity collected was sufficient to provide food of the value of several pounds for his pigs. It is no uncommon thing to see the carts unprotected, so that the whole of the grain which is knocked out of the ears during the time the corn is being carted to the stack is lost, merely because no pains are taken to collect it. The sides of stacks are left uncovered, and the small birds get the grain during winter; whereas, if it were collected there would be sufficient to feed many pigs. A piece of sheeting below the platform of a threshing ma chine prevents much grain being lost on it...

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...
