degrees F. as possible. When the cream Is taken from the milk it should be kept in a can which is supplied with a good cover. It is very import ant that cream should be kept in a pure atmosphere, therefore it is not advisable to keep it in a living room. Another very important point is clean liness. The cream can should be thoroughly scalded before it is used, so that no taints or contaminating germs will get into the cream. The cream should be well stirred when fresh cream is added. The method of handling the cream from this point has already been outlined in a pre vious article, so we will just mention one more precaution. That is, that the churn and butter making tools should all be thoroughly washed and scalded before use. Many of the difficulties of butter making, then, may be averted by a few precautions, viz: 1. Prevent the milk from becoming contaminated by dust, etc. 2. Keep the cream in a pure at mosphere. 3. See that all butter mak ing utensile are thoroughly scalded and ...

8 REPORT OF SECRETARY OF AGRI- CULTURE. Secretary Wilson in submitting his seventh annual report to the presi dent, discusses many topics of inter est to farmers and the country. The report shows the growth and devel opment of agriculture during the past year and reviews in a practical and telling way the rapid development in the various lines of agriculture in the United States. Discussing the balance of trade, the Secretary shows that the favorable balance to the credit of this country is due entirely to the farmers. The balance of trade in favor of farm products during the last fourteen years, no year excepted, aggregated $4,860,000,000. In products, other than those of the farm, during the same period, the balance of trade was ad verse to this country to the extent of $865,000,000. Our farmers not only can celed this immense obligation, but placed $3,694,000,000 to the credit of the nation when the books of interna tional exchange were balanced. He concludes that "it is the farm...

they might be neglected by lying out over cold nights and they do not usu ally get as generous feed as they ought. If it is decided to raise the fall calves they will have a better oppor tunity to develop in the winter than in the summer when they are troubled with flies and heat —an animal can endure a reasonable amount of cold better than great heat. The calf is directly under the eye in the winter and when anything ails it can be reme died without delay. In the spring they will be very vigorous and their stomachs will be adapted to grass and they will grow rapidly. By the next fall they may be turned off for the baby beef with profit. There are many things to recom mend winter dairying, we are sure that it will only be a question of time when the majority of dairymen will adopt it. To those who have not adopted it we counsel them to keep open cows until the middle of the winter and then breed them; in that case they will come in next fall and they can then commence winter dairyin...

IO PURE BRED POULTRY PAY BEST. Mrs. M. C. Downing writes as fol lows on the indifference of farmers to the profits in poultry: "The farmer himself will admit that he has the best place of all places for the rearing of fine stock of any kind, especially poultry, and the city fancier looks forward to the time when he can move his flock out on a farm and have unlimited range. While it is true evry farm should be stocked with pure bred poultry oi the breed liked best by the proprietor, it is also true that no one farm in ten has any thing better than scrubs, and we have often wondered why the up-to-date farmer, who has blooded cattle and hogs and knows they are the best, is still content with his scrub poultry, which is more often than not of the scrubbiest kind. "On the farm we have unlimited range if we want it, plenty of room for houses and yards —an abundance of feed of different varieties at the lowest possible prices; indeed, much of it being waste grain worth nothing at all on th...

ASCENDANCY OF THE FARMER. The following statement has recent ly appeared in the daily press, and re fers to one of the states of the West: In compiling the house directory of the next general assembly, the secretary of the state finds, with all but six members having reported, that the farmers are considerably more numerous in the house than in the sen ate, while the lawyers are not so numerous. There will be thirty-one farmers in the house, while the lawyers number only about ten. To our way of thinking this is one of the most hopeful signs of the times, while we favor the election of the strongest men for the representative and senatorial offices, both in state and nation, yet we are persuaded that among the farmers of the country may be found just as good talent for such offices as can be found among the professions, manufacturers, or men who follow mercantile pursuits. If half of our people live on the farms, is it not reasonable that half of our representatives and senators sho...

2 Mr. Edwin F. Benson. Edwin F. Benson, the subject of the first page illustration, has been engaged in the live stock business in this state for over twenty years. Few men are more generally known throughout eastern Washington than he. His energy and business ability were displayed in Yakima during the early nine ties in irrigation projects and along horticul tural lines. Later he enlisted the co-opera tion of Senator Ankeny and together they own the Prosser Falls Land and Irrigation Company, which the senator declares to be one of the most profitable and satisfactory investments he ever made. Later on Mr. Benson became associated with W. H. Babcock, the wheat king of Washington, in a sheep find cattle partner ship embracing over 100,000 acres of farm ing, grazing and timbered lands in the coun ties of Douglas, Kittitas and Chelan. Mr. Benson's latest business association is the Yakima Valley Horse Company, com posed of himself and the Bernard brothers, two of the most expert and b...

4 Horticultural Notes By F. WALDEN. D. S. Mooring, assistant horticulturist of Pullman college, was recently in Seattle and called on the editor of these notes. The ob ject of this visit to Western Washington is to make some investigations with reference to the raising of cranberries in this state. He was introduced to some of the leading commission men in Seattle and particularly to those who handle this kind of fruit. In this way Prof. Mooring learned who are the principal growers of cranberries and then went to where they are grown that he might interview the growers. From them he ex pects to learn the extent to which this berry is grown in Washington and also something of the methods employed in its cultivation and harvesting. In due time the results of these observations will be embodied in a report and given to the public. It will no doubt be a surprise to many readers of The Ranch to learn that cranberries are raised at all in Washington and especially that they have become a...

WALKS AND TALKS ON WESTERN AVENUE. _^__^__ By F. Will"1'"11 __________ Tudor the Bbove heading we purpose to ;id(l fl new department to The Ranch. It will not be a market report but there will be something in that line. On Western avenue in Seattle can be found most of the commission houses that handle fruit, potatoes, butter, eggfl and chickens. Many farmers who ship their products to these eommision houses have never been in Seat tle and would have trouble in finding them if they were here. It is a good thing for the producers to visit such a city as Seattle occasionally and make the acquaintance of those men who handle their products. The commission men often go out among the farmers and solicit their trade. This is all right and we like to have them come. But why not reverse the order and let the pro ducers visit the commission men? This is done to some extent and perhaps will grow in magnitude. I can assure the growers that they will meet a cordial greeting when ever they come ...

6 AiOTHER SILO SUCCESS By H. L. Blanchard. After a few years spent in discus sion as to the advisability of building a silo, D. S. Troy, manager of tne • Glendale dairy farm, situated at Chi macum, this state, concluded during the summer of iyu3 to construct a 250 --ton stave silo. This silo was com pleted just in time for the crop of peas and oats that had been planted for the purpose. Immediately upon such completion a No. 1G Ohio ensi lage cutter and blower was purchased and placed in position alongside of the sho, using the threshing machine en gine for power. The silo was then nearly tilled with this crop of peas and oats, when, owing to pressure of other work, it was allowed to stand for about a week, when tilling was re sumed for a day or two, then another interruption of a few days occurred. Filling was again resumed until the work was completed, when a few inches of material of no feeding value was cut and spread over the surface and well wet down. This silo was 36 feet hig...

STATE'S CREAMERY INDUSTRY. (By Commissioner McDonald.) The dairy Industry of the state shows a very nattering growth dur ine the past year. The number of (>r eameries in the state in 1902 was 545 and the amount of butter manu factured was 5.883.251 pounds. The number of creameries operating in the state during the year 1903 is 471 and the amount of butter manufactured was 6 970 992 pounds, showing an in crease' of 1,087,741 pounds. The num ber of cheese factories operating dur ing the year of 1902 was forty-one and the amount of cheese manufactured was 1,128,735. The number of such factories in the state during the year of 1903 is twenty-four and the amount of cheese manufactured is 1,315,551 showing the increase for the year of 186,816 pounds. Some information is necessary in re gard to the number of creameries in The state. A creamery is a place where a separator is used and butter is man ufactured by the latest scientific meth ods. This permits any dairyman to secure the state...

8 THE CULTIVATION OF HOPS. Before a large gathering of hop growers and those interested in kin dred lines in the district of Tenbury, England, a few weeks ago Prof. A. D. Hall, director of the Rothampstead ex perimental station at Kent, England, gave a lecture on the growing and treatment of hops. The professor con fined his remarks chiefly to the ma nuring and drying of hops, basing his statements on the result of experi ments conducted at his station dur ing the past nine years. Dealing with the question of ma nures, Prof. Hall pointed out that dif ferent plants required different foods to feed upon. The soil itself contained an enormous amount of food for plants, probably enough to grow 100 or 150 crops, without manure. Dif ferent plants possessed their own pe culiar powers for getting this locked up material in the soil and assimilat ing it to their use. In the case of the hop plant this was not so. It was a plant which was a free feeder and cer tainly the soils needed special t...

MERGING THE INDIVIDUALITY. In the tremendous rush of this fast moving age, individual effort is almost lost, says a writer. It is being crowd ed out. Everywhere the tendency is towards combination, combination of capital and combination of labor. There is coming to be no room any more for a man, for men; only room for companies, corporations and syndi cates. Individualism is swallowed up and lost in association. The wagon maker, buggy maker, blacksmith and cabinet maker are all disappearing. It is becoming difficult to find a man who can make a complete wagon, or buggy, or even a plow. These things are now mostly made in great shops filled with curious and complicated machinery —and some men. Perhaps no workman in these shops could make the complete article there manufact ured ; he could only attend to a more or less automatic machine which turns out hubs, or spokes, or beams, or thills, by the thousand. He be comes simply a part of the man ufacturing establishment. The re- ally ski...

to AGE OF DRESSED'POULTRY. One of the commonest ways of test ing the age of dressed poultry is to take the end of the breastbone farther est from the head between thumb and finger and attempt to bend it to one side. In the very young bird, say a "broiler" chicken or a green goose, it will be easily bent, like the cartilage in the human ear. In a bird a year old or so it will be brittle, and in an old bird tough and hard to bend or break. Unfortunately tricky dealers often break the breastbone at the end before exhibiting the bird, and thus render the test worthless. If tne feet are left on the carcass they will fur nish a means for testing the age. In a young bird they are soft and smooth, becoming hard and rough as the bird grows older. The claws are short and sharp in a young bird, becoming longer and blunter with age and use. The spur above the foot is also to be ob served. When the bird is young, like a broiler chicken, it is hardly appar ent; a few months later it is long, but ...
