They saw at once that this was to be no jolly uathpring, but a fashionable affair. Something not (o be enjoyed at the time, perhaps, but to be gloried in and talked over Ion.; afterwards. Fr >m a lively social company, they became a number of stiff individuals, not at all eager to make the first advances, least they should commit some blunder. "Come on, me frinds, come on!" said Dennis encouragingly, and tin illy one by one they disappeared through the door way.

I j WINDOW GARDENING. Read by Annie Howard before the Northwest Fruit Grower's Convention. The English rank first amon<,' tho na tions as skillful and tasteful gard tiers and niaki-rs of attractive homes. No traveler paßsinK through the rural dittricta of England ia ever wanting in enthusiastic praise (if their trim lawns, beautiful flower beds and artistic window garden log, Even in some of the windows of the most wretched tenements in the crowded streets of London may be seen pots of southernwood, lavender and other plants, which, perchance, in hap pier days and under more favorable con ditions, may hove been cultivated more abundantly in neat cottage gardens. Yet for all this, there is not the pretty sentiment, connected with the English window gardens as with those of the Japanese. A paMionate love for flowers is manifest everywhere in the "land of the rising sun," und in some localities there prevails v custom as pretty and po etical as it is unique. Unlike some of our Ameri...

It is the outfitting point tor the great Bunnyside country, that is now being irrigated by the N. P. Co., of which Paul Schulze is president. This canal is 60 miles long, of which I-' miles arc now completed. This canal is 30 feet wide on the bottom mid carries GSO cubic feet of water per second of time. When fully com ple'ed it will irrigate 70,000 acres of laud. 2d.

THE RANCH ONE DOLLAR A YEAR. WEEKLY. A Journal of The Land and The Home in The New West. VOL. I. NO. 7. Prospects. Washington State Vice President Wil cox, of the Northwest fruit growers' asso ciation, addresses the fruit growers of the state in an open letter through The Ranch (page 2), urging upon the live men of every corninunity to organize lo cal societies for the better control of ship ping and marketing, and hence the se curing of better returns for their pro ducts. Likewise the learning of right methods of picking, grading and pack ing; for these are of equal importance with the transportation and selling. In deed, it is always well to remember The Ranch's axiom that "a crop well grown is half way, but only half way to mark et." Editors of all papers in the state are requested to copy Mr. Wilcox's open letter for the general good. Co-operation is a good thing. It re quires as a fundamental principle that the co-operators possess in reality as well as in name the puritan virt...

2 Yakiina melon growers, to unite and ship all their product through oue agent and sell only for cash, f. o. b. Dairymen want cash, too, and don't like nn exclus ive barter trade. A first-class product will command its price in cash every time. It only remains to secure quantity enough to make special means profitable. That is obtainable only through organiza tion of producers into shipping associa tions and selling by grade and trade mark. The creameries and dairymen of a county, a valley, a section or district, may easily unite into an association for shipping and marketing, selling through one accredited agent only in each large town, on the fruit shipping principle, and thereby effect their object—cash sales at fair prices. Read the fruit-marketing articles in this and last week's Ranch. A "prospect" for the wheat farmers of Eastern Washington and Oregon has less of interest than it would have had a year ago. But it is well worth noting that the snows and rains this winter and l...

Vice president for Oregon, J. R. Card well. Vice president for British Columbia, John Kirkland. Treasurer, W. S. Offuer, of Walla Walla, Wash. Secretary, S. A. Clarke, of Portland, Oregon. NEW THINGS TO PLANT IN '94. When that experiment station gets started at ZUlah, they will of course try all the species and varieties of plants that seem especially adapted to the soil and climate. If they don't "get "a move on" pretty quick now the central Washington exper iment station will not be a thing of 1894. Meantime it will not do to let a single year go by without progressive investiga tion of the capacities and needs of this "arid region." And in no way can more positive, quick and valua...

1 THE ARID LANDS As the Seat of a New Civilization. From Address of the Irrigation Couventiou The public lands which still belong to the people of the United States are for the most part arid or semi-arid, requiring the artificial application of witer to make them pro ductive. They lie between the ninety seveuth meridian and the Pacific ocean, and are divided between seventeen states and territories. This domain is estimated by the general land office to contain 545J, --000,000 acres. Enough of land i& arable to provide homes and farms tor millions of people. The portion which can never be cultivated is valuable for range purposes or fpr forest reservations. Notwithstanding the present condition of these arid lands, we confidently predict that they will become the seat of the high est civilization and of the greatest average prosperity yet developed on this continent. The intensive scientific cultivation rendered possible by irrigation results in the largest conceivable developm...

uals can make the experiment at little outlay of labor or money. It requires about 3}£ pounds of seed to the acre, sown by drilling, and should be put in about the first week in May, or perhaps a little later here. If planted too early it is liable to run to seed. Grown to any ex tent would necessitate quite a plant for slicing, drying and grinding, but if read ily grown the needed capital would prob ably be forthcoming to utilize the product. The crop is one worthy of consideration in this favored country where nearly ev erything may be grown to perfection. THE JAPAN PLUMS. Answering your query as to the Japan plums, I will say that of all the Kelsey strain I have seen,the fruit does n)t equal most of the European kinds. But the Simoni and Botan (Abundance) I pre fer to any other plums I ever saw. Being great bearers, this fact strikes us forcibly, as they may surpass any of our older varieties. The fruit has a coming flavor that is irresistible. I have kept the fruits in my desk d...

6 CONVENTION ECHOES. Matters of Varied Interest From the Fruit Growers' Meeting at Spokane. Beet ragU got a hearty weird from Prof. Fulnier, and a promise for the future when actual test shall demonstrate the capacity to supply factories. One thing is sure, every thing points in the direction that Washing ton hns all things in favor of the beet sugar industry. I wish I could say the time is ripe for active factory building in 1894. But capital is shy. We must wait till the tariff question is settled and the business condition normal. All we can do this year is to experiment, in which the state exper iment etiition will aid. It will form a partnership with every farmer, supplying seed and instructions gratis, analyze the 'oeets free of charge, and pay transporta tion on the samples. J)y planting and cul tivating under the instructions, positive knowledge will be obtained that will be available for use next winter in interesting capital. ox pruning. There are many ideas about pruning....

SUNNYSIDE GROWTH. Brother MoGinnis' sunny face fills with Sunnyside smiles as spring comes on, and his stamping ground gets crowded with enthusiastic settlers. About 200 people have located under the big ditch since the Neve Year, and they keep coming with increasing speed. Small farms are the rule. Brown and Phipps, for example, bought 40 acres, and are putting up three houses for as many families. The local lumber dealer has his hand 3 full; 50.003 feet were one day's sales. Eight build ings are now going up In the town itself, but the great growth is, as it should be, on the farm lands outside.

WAYSIDE NOTES. An A. Ward Episode—A Pig Tale for Boys. Sagebrush "Tea" for Fire and Road Beds—Tenderfoot TafFy—Eating Wheat Pigwise—Pomological Cackle. Hy nn Old Bagebnub Rooster. My stuffing for Tnr. Ranch failed to materialize last week, much to the gratifi cation of your metal stickers, I presume. You see we had at our house what Arte mus Ward called an "episode." Though of course not unexpected, you know those little affairs come with surprising sudden ness sometimes even to the foremost member of the household. But all are "as well as could be expected" now and I am able to go about my business again. After this bit of introduction I very naturally hit, first, upon a little "Pig Tale for the Boys," and I want all the big boys as well as the little ones to heed its teachings: Master John B. Sandmeyer is a lad of 14 who lives with his parents ou a five-acre ranch in the outskirts of the sagebrush, not far from the great "Hub" of which The Ranch is the principal "spoke." The boy h...

10 THE INTERVIEWER. Cheese Making Up the Ahtanum—The Plant of the Creamery Company—Yield of Milk-The Cow Stock-Size and Amount of Cheese-Value of Grasses- The Future of the Dairy Business, Etc. —Mr. Frazier Does the Talklnsr. This week I ran across J. M. Frazier, one of the largest stockholders in the Ahtanum co operative creamery com pany, whose plant is located some eight miles from North Yakima up the fertile valley of the Ahtanum. He proved just the man to give The Ranch public some of the details of cheese making so far as the business has been developed in this new country. "Mr. Frazier, what was the cost of the Ahtanum plant and of what does it con sist?" was the first leading interrogatory. "The plant represents an investment of about $3,500. It consists of a pretty complete outfit of approved cheese-mak ing apparatus and a modest building suitable for the purpose." "You have milk cans, cheese presses, separator, etc., etc?" "Certainly; and a Babcock milk tester by which we ...

POULTRY RANCH. I Our Poultry Editor is Harry H. Collier, No. 9,">0 C St.. Tacoina. Address him ou all Poultry matters. 1 FOWL PICK-UPS. Nothing better than lime in a poultry house to keep out vermin and purify ev erything. A hen that will let you handle her while on the nest without fluttering and jumping around will make a good mother. One can always tell a good, vigorous cock by the way he scratches, flies upon fences, and is generally active at all times. When you buy damaged grain for your fowls you make a mistake, for it is liable to cause diarrhoea and kindred diseases, costing you more in the long run than good feed would. A poultry raiser without a poultry book is like a lawyer without his code, and the book for a poultryman is the record of the experience of others in The Ranch for example. A lath fence 18 inches high will confine the large breed of ducks, but occasionally one will get over it. If so, clip a wing, or confine the offender in some other } rard for a few da...

12 THE POPCORN MAN. Clinton ScolJtird in St. Nicholas. There's a queer little man hvos dowu the street Where two of the broadest highways meet, In a queer little house that's half of it glass, With windows open to all who pass, Antl a low little roof that's nearly flat, And a chimney us black as papa's best hat. Oil, the house is built on this funny plan Because it's the home of the popcorn man ! How does he sleep, it he sleeps at all ? He must roll up like a rubber ball, Or like a squirrel, and store himself All huddly cuddly under the shelf. If he wanted to stretch he'd scarce have space In his bare little, spare little, square little place. He seems like a rat cooped up in a can, This brisk little, frkk little popcorn man. I know he's wise by the way he looks, For he's just like the man I've seen in books, With his hair worn off ami hissquinty eyes, And his wrinkles too—oh, I know he's wise ! Ami then just think of the way he makes The corn all jump into snowy flakes With a "pop ...

The Pole refused and threatened him with his drawn sword, but at the same time told him they would find a vehicle waiting for them on the threshold of the wood. They continued their tramp until they found themselves at ihe gato of the Convent of Bielany. Kosinski was here so agitated by his thoughts that the king perceived his dis order, and having remarked thnt they had strayed from the road in quite a dif ferent direction, added : "I see you do not know where to go. Let me seek shelter in the convent, and do you pro vide for your own safety." "No," replied Kosinski, "I have sworn." They continued their journeyings until they arrived at Mariemont, a small palace belonging to the house of Saxony, which is not more than half a league from War saw. Kosinski showed some satisfaction on find ng out where he was; and the king having again asked for a few min utes' rest, he consented. While they re clined together on the ground, th...

14 WINDOW GARDENING. Real by Annie Howard before the Northwest Fruit Growers' Convention. [COXCLUDBD.] In selecting plants for wiurlow gardens*, three things ought to be considered —spac«, opportunity for light, and temperature of room. If one is fortunate enough to haTe in a sitting room, a double or low window with a southern or western exposure, there will suiely be inspiration for endless exper iments and wildest vagaries; but if the plants must needs be kept in a dining room or bed room where the temperature is likely to be 10 or 15 degrees lower, discretion must be used in choosing them. For a room whose temperature ranges neither higher than 73 degress nor lower than 40 degrees, having only single windows, boxei of bulbs, crocuses, hyaciuths and a few tulips, interspersed with liberal clusters of swoet violets, and also a few vines to relieve the plainness of the box. will give rich reward iv color and fragrance from Novem ber until March and even so lute as April. Such a box...
