TLe digestibility of lucern can be estimated rightly only by direct experiments with animals. The composition of the different cuttings, taken weight for weight, will, how ever give us some insight into the food value of lucern cut at different periods. Let us first consider the first crop. The cutting of June 22d, at early bloom, compared with the cutting of June 15th, at budding, contains, pound for pound, nearly one-half per cent, less of albuminoids, and nearly two and one-half per cent, more of crude fibre; while the other constituents are about the same. The albuminoids have the highest food value; the crude fibre the lowest; of the former about seventy-five of every hundred pounds eaten are taken into the animal system; of the latter, only about flftv of every hundred. A pound of lucern cut at early bloom has* therefore, a lower food value than a pound of lucern cut at budding. Recent experiments seem to modify this statement In a later bulletin on the food value of lucern th...

4 THE HILLS OF YAKIMA. The Yakima Republic in its iasue of two weeks ago con tained a good article showing that the apparently sterile hills of the Yakima valley are really capable of being made quite productive, and cites a number of instances where farming is being successfully carried on at tributary high land points. We extract the following from the article: "There has been a practical demonstration this week of the soundness of our argument. On Saturday a contract was entered into by eleven Hollanders and two Frenchman, whereby government land there will be immediately settled upon and improved. "The thirteen heads of families agreed to put into a pool $25 each, which money is to be used in boring an artesian well just this side of the Tucker Leach ranch, near the Co lumbia river. The Spratt & Haines well-boring apparatus has been leased for the work, and the drilling will be kept up night and day until water is struck. "The colonists left on Monday for their new home, whi...

WHEN THE FOWLS ARE ILL. S. M. Shipley, Seattle, Wash. Many remedies can be resorted to in cases of simple colds. Symptoms—Eyes water, nostrils! discharge offensive liquid which thickens as stages of cold advance; face becomes swollen even to closing of one or both eyes. Common treatment—Cleanse the nostril and cleft in roof cl" mouth with soft cloth or feather, then inject into both a mixture of sweet oil and kerosene, equal parts, a drop of carbolic acid will help the remedy. Also thoroughly annoint the face and comb with mixture. Vaseline is very valuable tor application to face, eyes and comb, and will frequently cure a bad cold without any other remedy being used. Dur ing period of treatment feed soft food only. A two-grain j.tllit of quinine at night for two or three days will be found oti'ective. Another simple remedy is to take shallow dish, fill with warm water, then pour in enough coal oil to form scum over surface. Into this submerge head of fowl, so the water and oil will...

6 FLAX GROWING IN WASHINGTON. Dating back to the stone age or before, flax growing has al ways been an important industry, increasing in value and extent until a comparatively recent period. The growing of flax seed for oil and food for stock is greater today than at any previous period. There are numerous varieties of the Linums. This state affords one native species, nearly allied to the one in cultivation for economic purposes, the wild or parent of which is unknown. The present strain of flax is of modern origin, produced by selection under favorable con ditions for development for a special purpose. The flax seed produced in the United States contains a smaller percentage of oil than does European flax seed, and brings a correspond ing less price in the market, which less price is more than compensated for by the greater yield. The primary cause of deficiency in oil is probably due to lack of suitable seed, which, with a better understanding, can be remedied. Flax seed deficien...

VINELAND WEATHER. Storms of high wind, furious rain and deep snows and rasing rivers are reported from all over the west coast, and from the foot hills and plateaus of the Inland Empire from the Palouse, the Big Bend and all the high prairies Yet in the warm sheltered Vineland, down in Lewiston valley the weather is still mild (Nov. 20). There has been no snow, though we can see it on the distant hills all around. We have had plenty of rain and cloudy weather, but out-door work has not been stopped except for a few hours at a time. This morning we picked fresh roses and pansies in the gardens Yet this is an unusually cold and wet autumn. We usually find rose buds in January and February. In four years the severest cold has been three and one-half degrees below zero. I could not endure the harsh climate of the East but here have been well and strong all the time. Perhaps it will interest your readers to know that one Vinelander, Mr. C. C. Gregg, grew fine sweet potatoes that paid him...

IO HOW MUCH SEED PER ACRE. In a recent issue of the Breeders' Gazette there appeared a letter touching the question of the proper amount of seed wheat per acre required to give most profitable results. Calling the attention of Prof. W. J. Spillman to the ar ticle has resulted in bringing forth an excellent contribu tion from him giving still further information on this topic, which is so important to Northwestern grain farmers. We give below the letter and follow it with the remarks by Prof. Spillman. When wheat is worth nearly $1 a bushel farmers give more attention to the amount of seed used. If three pecks will produce a good crop why use six pecks? Illinois is the unfortunate wheat state this year, with her average con dition reported at 45. The question of seed is a vital one with such a short crop, as thousands will have seed to buy. Doubtless there are seasons and conditions of soil in which three pecks of seed are ample. If one has good laud and a seed-bed well compacted and...

STRIPPINQS—M. L. Matterson. A supply of good books and papers would be of value if used these long evenings, and perhaps be the means of keep ing the boys and girls from going astray. ]£ a dairyman expects to be progressive he must be a student. He can study the result of methods pursued by others as well as himself, and profit thereby. We are glad to note that Mr. McDonald is after those fel lows who are violating our dairy laws. Let every dairyman la the state give him a helping hand if possible. Did you give the cows anything to be thankful for? Re member it is not necessary to eat turkey to be thankful. As we go about the streets now we are reminded that Christ mas is near, and so begin to plan for presents to the various friends. Don't forget that the cow is one of them if she doesn't wear hose. The man-afraid-of-his cow is never a good milker. If the cow loves her milker half as well as she does her calf she will never "hold up her milk" to him.—Farm, Stock and Home. W. L. Car...

SHEEP IN MONTANA. The very considerable reduction in the number of sheep to the United States, the very great losses in sheep in Aus tralia the present protective tariff, all supplemented by the inrrpased activity of manufactures and trade, are potent acto?s in the present situation. It seems to me that even the most hopeless pessimist can hardly fail to feel encour aged as to the immediate future of wool and mutton I feel Convinced that both these products will command, in 1898 nrices somewhat beyond the present selling rates. Out on Tr plans those present rates are very satisfactory, giving us as they dC, double the money for wool and 50 per cent advance in mutton. During the last four years, caretul sheep owners have been able to just about hold their own even with wool at 8 cents per pound, and fat weathers at $2 50 per head; but this year, the owner of 3,000 sheep should realizj, at least $2,000 beyond his receipts of years past. Three thousand head of sheep are, perhaps, about...

RANCH AND RANGE. Vol. 3, No. 37. HANAGED BY A PLUMBER AND A BOOK-KEEPER, Hoard's Dairyman. Dairy farming all over the United States shows numerous examples of marked success, where business men have gone into it because they were broken in health or fortune, and maybe in some instances both., The fol lowing letter from an enterprising firm at Spokane, Wash., is but another in stance. We have the constant spectacle of business men leaving the city and taking up a dairy farm and making a success of a herd of cows, mainly because they are willing to look after small details and handle affairs with business judgment. Editor Hoard's Dairyman: It may interest you to know that our dairy is located on the Spokane river, about three miles from the center of town. The writer, having been engaged in office work for about eighteen years (commencing when about 12 years of age), started this dairy in a small way about two and one-half years ago with the idea of leaving the office when the dairy g...

Don't forget the meeting, nor the fact that you will surely be benefited in some manner by attending.
