ONE HAN'S IDEA OF "ECONOMY." Our school rooms are appropriately adorned with mottoes to inspire and instruct the young. Our farms should abound with mottoes like these: "Time is money," "There is no royal road to wealth," "Despise not the day of small things," "It is harder to keep a dollar than to earn it." And inscribed ev erywhere, about the barns, in the kitchen and over the swill barrel, should be this, "Economy is wealth." The postage on a letter costs two quarts of milk, and lately at a hotel I was astonished to find that I had eaten five bushels of oats, while my horse had eaten only five quarts. The first $300 one ac cumulates in getting a start in life comes harder than ever after, and when a dollar comes your way you want to be a gold bug for the time being, and, believing there is too much money in the world, promptly arrest the circulation of that dolar. When called uptin to part with it remember it is a "dear dollar" in every sense of the word. Don't try to keep up wit...

We have heard of orders being placed for four cars of poultry to come from the East for the holiday trade to Wash ington. From this it would seem as though we needed to develop our poultry industry a little more. A horsethief in Whitman county, this state, who had been brought up for trial on the charge of stealing a horse, pleaded not guilty, because the horse he stole was not a horse but a gelding. The judge held that the horsethief could not be prosecuted on the charge and so let the thief go. J. B. Palmer seems determined t...

10 A GREAT DUCK FARM. Mr. James Rivnkin, the veteran incubator operator and pioneer in artificial duck raising, although 65 years old, is still extensively engaged in raising ducks. Having lilely added a new double brooder house to his plant at S-utli Easton, Mass., he will this season raise considerably more than the 12,000 ducklings usually grown. He no logger laises early roasting chickens, because they are now le s profitab c. Although his enormous trade in choice breeding clucks and ducks' eggs for hatching, built up during the last 15 years, is the most important part of his business, he continues to make a snug sum every year on ducks grown for market. The extent of the interest in ducks and the great giowth of the business is shown by the fact that although other lage and successful duck farms in various parts of the country are now selling quantities of eggs for hatching, Mr. Rankin sold last year 50,000 eggs for this purpose. He s fates ihat out of 2,200 breeding ducks sav...

12 FOR LEANER HOQS. The Trade Register says in its last issue: Our readers will remember that the Trade Register long ago maintained that the American pork raiser would in time be led to realize that the demand would be for leaner hogs instead of for fatter pork; also that the old idea of packers that nothing could equal corn-fed pork was fast being exploded. Occasionally we meet some one who persists in advancing the old preju dices, sometimes because they sincerely believe them and somtimes because they think it is to their interest to do so. In this connection we quote from a letter to the Cincinnati Price Current, written by James Keniston & Bro. of Bristol, Eng.: "We are pleased to notice in your issue of September 30 an article headed 'Leaner Hogs Called For.' You are evidently right in your assumption that 'the American hog grower has given too much attention to an effort to get rid of his corn, and too little to a consideration of the style of hog best adapted to securin...

How many pounds of seed do you sow to the acre when planting alfalfa? 2. Explain your method of irrigating. 3. At what stage do you think alfalfa should be cut to make the best hay—before bloom, during bloom or after bloom? 4. How many crops per season do you cut? 5. How do you market your alfalfa? 6. (a) Have you noticed any difference in weight of hay that is cut before it blooms from that cut during or after bloom? (b) Have you noticed any difference in its feeding value when cut at various stages of growth? (c) Do you think that there is any difference in the feeding value of the first, second, third, or fourth crop? 7. Do you find much trouble with the stock bloating on alfalfa If so, state at ...

stack, and not bleached too much before it is stacked; and it should be raked and put in the cock before it is dry enough to shatter the leaves off. 7. I have had some trouble with cows bloating on thrifty, growing alfalfa, before it has bloomed. 1 watch them very carefully when I turn on a fresh pasture. 1 have always tied a large stick in their mouth when they bloated and kept them walking or turning around when they could not walk and have never lost one yet. 8. I have salted it. Two or three pounds to the ton is plenty. Make a very strong brine and sprinkle it on. Cattle eat the hay a little cleaner and seem to all get their propor tion of salt better. 9. I have never tried feeding on the meadow to any extent, but manure or any kind of fertilizer is good to put on the meadow and should be distributed evenly. 10. I never made an accurate estimate of the loss by keep ing a stack over winter. 1 have heard several men say there was about one-fifth loss and some men say about one-sev...

4 1 have been interested in the growing of alfalfa for 10 years. 1. Sow about 12 pounds per acre. 2. Our method of irrigating is Hooding. 3. Cutting should be done at the first appearance of bloom, when it makes the best hay; if left until the bowls form, the leaves fall off, the straw becomes tough and woody, stock do not eat it so well and the hay is much lighter. 4. We cut four crops here and sometimes live. ti. 1 think there is very little difference in the feeding value of first, second, third or fourth crop, if cut when bloom first makes its appearance. 7. Stock never bloat on alfalfa after it is cut and dried. If allowed to feed on the green plant when growing rank, they are liable to bloat, especially after a rain or heavy dew in the morning. The remedy for bloat is to stick a knife in the animal's flank a little below and behind the kidneys, which gives immediate relief. 8. 1 have never used salt in stacking alfalfa; it surely would be beneficial. 9. Never feed or allow sto...

Cut for seed when the middle clusters of seed pods are dark brown. To make alfalfa hay, cut in the forenoon and let it wilt; then rake into windrows. It should be cured in windrows and cocks, and stacked or put in barns with as little handling as possible. Great care is required in order to get it in stack before the leaves become too dry and brittle. The leaves are the most palatable and nutritious part of the hay. Cover the stacks with caps. This will prevent loss by molding when it rains. In the arid regions, where irrigation is practiced, put water on the field before sowing the seed, and immediately after cutting each crop of hay. It is not safe to pasture either cattle or sheep on alfalfa, as they are liable to bloat when it is fed green. Feed them the hay, or practice soiling. There is no better or cheaper way of growing hogs than to pasture them on alfalfa. One acre will furnish pasturage for fi'om 10 to 20 hogs per season. Horses can be pastured on alfalfa. There is no bett...

6 STRIPPINQS. ■ V M. L. MATTCRSON Why can't Yakima have a farmers' institute this winter? [There is not the least reason why a good institute should not be held at Yakima, and if the farmers will petition President Bryan of the Agricultural College, members of the faculty will be detailed to conduct same. —Ed.] We looked the whole town of North Yakima over for a buttermilk strainer, and found only one person who knew what it was. The best time to dehorn is while yet calves. It doesn't give the animal such a backset and does away with the risk of attendants being hooked. However, it is "better late than never." If you want a gentle bull and vigorous calves, give the former plenty of exercise. If possible, let him have the run of a fair-sized lot with other stock for company. We are much pleased to learn that Ranch and Range will not accept "indecent" or "fraudulent" advertisements. The feeding value of milk fresh from the separator is far superior to sour milk for either calves or ho...

ADVANTAGES OF ORGANIZATION. REPRODUCED FROM OHIO FARMERS. The rapid development and growth of fruit culture in our state in the past few years seems to require an organization or society for a special work and in compliance with this de mand a few of our most enterprising fruit growers and citi zens met in Sheridan about one year ago and organized what is now known as Adams Township Agricultural, Horticultural and Floral Society. This society, though young, now having only passed its first year of existence, has accomplished a commendable and valuable work in the interest of fruit culture that should inspire its members with a new zeal in its behalf and a determination to press forwaid in the goo 1 work, began turning neither to the right nor to the left until the highest pinical of success obtainable is reached. The social advantages afforded by these meetings add largely to their enjoyment and value. Here ties of friendship are formed and hereto bound together by a mutual fellow f...
