It MUSI CORie. As inevitable as the changing seasons of the year is the change which comes to every woman. And just as one anticipates the changes of other seasons it is wise to anticipate this change of season and pre pare for it. In this way the discomforts and disasters suffered by many women at the period of change can be avoided or overcome. Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription, a med icine for every season of woman's life, will entirely meet the needs of women at this period of change. It cures the physical ills and relieves the mental anxiety and depression usually associated with this critical period. It tranquilizes the nerves, encourages the appetite and induces re freshing sleep. ■^■P^WW FOR WOMEN WHO CANNOT BE CURED. Backed up by over a third of a century of remarkable and uniform cures, a record such as no other remedy for the diseases and weaknesses peculiar to women ever attained, the proprietors of Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription now feel fully war ranted in offering ...

10 Poultry Interests _ BY H. L. BLANCHARD. Overfed and Had Insufficient Exercise. An Ellensburg correspondent writes as follows: "I wish to write you in regard to some joung chickens I am having trouble with. They are incubator hatched, full blood Black Minorcas. I only had a few and as the weather has been cold I have kept them in the house in a box 18x24 inches. Have always kept them warm and at night covered them in a small basket. Thirty six hours after hatching I gave hard boiled egg for two days; then bread made as directed in poultry book. Kept water to drink and sharp sand on paper in bottom of box. They seemed very bright and strong un til about two weeks old, when all but one or two were ailing with a weak ness which seemed to come on sud denly. At first they commenced, to totter around and to sit down mostly, as if the legs were very weak and they seem to grow a little worse and sometimes the toes seem to draw up a little but straighten out again. They act as if they woul...

Accordingly he set about to build one of about a hundred tons ca pacity, something like 18 feet in di ameter and 24 feet highPeivnado.afhfl struction was very good and at the time he thought it was as cheap as one could safely build a silo. He put it about six feet into the ground and built the basement of solid concrete, including the floor, then built the walls of the silo the same as an ordinary house, 2x4 studding put upright and short 2x4 pieces between about four feet apart. On the outside he used ordinary 8-inch boards, surfaced on the outside, and finished the outside with common batting. This made a very neat structure when finished, with a round roof and painted in red mineral paint. The inside was built as air-tight as possible. He used half-inch lumber four inches wide, nailing each strip horizontally and bending as he went along. Then he put on a good quality of building paper and again built up the wall with half-inch lumber....

Livestock Industry Wrat National Association is Doing. C. F. Mart'n, secretary of the Na tional Live Stock Association, who, with several members of the executive committee, attended a meeting of the railway traffic managers at Chicago on the 25th of last month in a demand for better railway service and return transportation to shippers, and then went on to Washington, D. C, in the interest of several measures, and from there attended the annual meet'ng of the Cattle Raisers' Association at Fort Worth, Texas, returned to his fnome in Denver the other day. In an interview he said: "The meeting of the representatives of the National Live Stock Association with the general traffic managers of the various lines centering in Chicago was said by railroad men to be the most important and representative meeting of the kind ever held in Chi cago. There were present the traffic managers of all the lines interested in live stock shipments. The committee of the Live Stock Association was compos...

14 panes in the coming election." Mr. Martin stated that the one thing that impressed him the most while he was in Washington, this being his first experience in matters of this kind, was the lack of knowledge by the average congressman as to what the live stock industry means to this country. With the exception of a few who come di rect from the live stock states, all the others are absolutely ignorant as to its magnitude. Everything in Wash ington is dominated by the manufac turing interests. If the manufacturers of Vermont should come to Washing ton and ask for a classified enumera tion of the granite quarries of that state, there would be no hesitation on the part of congress to grant it. If the pig iron people ask for anything from the hands of congress it is grant ed. The manufacturers asked for the creation of a bureau of commerce and they got it. The bureau of commerce is now asking for seven million dol lars with which to erect buildings in Washington and they will get it. ...

The Tail of the Sheep. It has long been a puzzle to us to know why nature still insists on put ting tails on lambs, writes the editor of Wallace's Farmer. Cattle seem dis posed, when they become thoroughly domesticated, to drop the horns, first having them smaller and lighter, then dropping them altogether. We can see why this is. Having man as an effi cient protector they do not need them, but nature still insists on putting tails on lambs althoough we have been cut ting them off for hundreds or perhaps thousands of years and still they come. We can sea why a horse or a cow should have a tail —to keep the flies off, but what can a fly do to a sheep always more or less covered with wool? We conceive very readily why a sheep needs about three or four inches of tail but we can not understand what use it has for about four-fifths of it un less it be to enable the lamb to ex press its satisfaction at the way its mother gives down when it applies its suction apparatus to nature's fountai...

THE RANCH . VOL. XXI. No. 9. PUBLIC LAND PROBLEM AND RANGE GRAZING William Lindsay, of Glendive, Mont.,, writes in the American Sheepbreeder: As in many of the great livestock states of the northwest, the livestock industry of Montana has been built upon a basis of a free and practically unlimited range. Custom or a tacit agreement between stockmen has been the law that has governed and con trolled the public range. And until very recently the lines of demarkation have been as distinctly drawn between neighboring ranges and as fully re spected as though they were owned by the parties occupying them. What ever may have been the conditions in other states, until very recently the various branches of the livestock in dustry have been carried on without friction in Montana and the best of feeling has existed between the own ers of different classes of live stock. But however satisfactory conditions in the past may have been, agencies have been at work for several years SEATTLE, WASHINGT...

4 Horticultural Notes By F. WALDEN. The editor of this department wants it distinctly understood that anyone dissenting from anything that appears in his columns is at liberty to reply, and if the reply is courteous and couched in passable English, it will appear. And further, it will not be the aim of the writer to say the last word. He is not infallible and may be wrong just as any mortal may be. What we want is the truth on all ques tions. The idea is prevalent that if we reply to an editor he will "fire back" and try to put his opponent in an ugly position before the readers of the paper. Such a course is con temptible and no fair-minded man will do anything of the kind. If someone criticises the writer and it can be seen that he is misunderstood, then it is but fair that he should set himself right. But it is not necessary to state the same thing over again and again. When persons holding different views on the question of pruning, or culti vating orchards, or storing fruit, or...

his particular hobby. It is claimed that the same treatment that he ac corded to his "pedigreed stock" would make fine strawberries out of scrub stock. So while we may receive his teaching on his hobby with a grain or two of salt, we may be greatly bene fltted with his methods of culture, use of fertilizers and his whole process of caring for his plants. ♦ * * By the way, the man with a hobby is very apt to be a useful man. He is a man who does something. He may carry his hobby too far but his enthusiasm marks him as a man who makes things go. Such a man is to be preferred to the drone who never does anythnig or is content to follow implicity in the footsteps of others. Inventors are nearly always consid ered cranks till they make a success of something and then they are re puted to be men of genius. A man with a hobby never stops. While others laugh and scorn he goes ahead —he can't stop. A story illustrative of this is told as follows: A man visiting an asylum for the insane saw a...

0 THE DAIRY Protein and Balanced Rations. In a recent issue of Hoard's Dairy man a subscriber writes: "Just after the civil war my father kept about SO cows back in Pennsylvania, and many a ton of butter I have taken to the railroad, which was sold in Balti more as high as 00 cents per pound in winter, and as low as 40 cents in summer. In those days we never heard of portein. All we knew about feed was, we fed it; the cows seemed to do well on it, and we made some money at the business. "For twenty-five years, I scarcely have given the dairy business a thought, and I now find myself in care of 25 cows, and am trying to get at the bottom of the business. When I ask my fellow dairymen what is it that we must have in order to have a balanced ration, the answer is: 'Don't know, but such and such a feed does very well for me.' Now will you please tell me just what it takes to make such a feed, regardless of what it comes from. "A friend saw me feeding cows some days ago, and said: 'What ...

Now dissolve 2^ drams of idodide of potash in boiling hot, per fectly clear water. This solution, when cooled to body temperature is to be injected into the udder, putting *4 of the quantity prepared into each teat. After this has been accom plished, the udder is gently but thor oughly rubbed for about fifteen min utes. An hour after this treatment, milk the udder clean. If necessary, the treatment may be repeated in from 8 to 12 hours later. In order to get the iodide solution into the udder proceed as follows: Procure a rubber tube about % inch in diameter and 6 to 8 feet long, also a glass funnel and a milking tube.

THE CAMEL'S HEAD. "Where the camel's , head goes his body follows," says an Oriental proverb. It's.the same way with disease. A small opening will give it an entrance and when disease once has a place in the body a large number of ills may follow it.

10 Poultry Interests ___ BY H. L. BLANCHARD. ___ How Many Eggs Should a Hen Lay? The number of eggs that a hen may be expected to lay during the year is a matter of importance to most poultry keepers who wish to make a profit from their fowls. So many statements are made as to the laying power of hens, and these statements vary so widely, that the ordinary amateur can form but a very slight opinion as to whether his fowls are doing their duty properly or not, writes A .V. Meersch, in American Poultry Journal. Pro fessional poultry keepers have some times asserted that their hens will average from 200 to 225 eggs each in the year. Such statements are apt to create dissatisfaction in the minds of the large number of people who keep only a few fowls in a backyard, and who naturally think they ought to ob tain almost double the quantity of eggs that they receive. But even, if these figures can be relied upon, they are not average results, and are only obtained from particular birds, car...

12 IN THE HOUSEHOLD Edited by Mrs. S. C. Butchrr. Foreword. In this issue we begin a new depart ment. It is not installed "upon the spur of the moment," but after a great deal of thought has been given the sub ject. The demand for a household department in such a publication as The Ranch is very general, and we shall now try to fill it. To the end that this may be made as interesting and valuable as our other departments, the publishers ask the kindly co-opera tion of the women on the farm. At the start this department is rather in the nature of an experiment, but we are of the firm belief that it will be thoroughly appreciated and that it will become a permanent feature. The pub lishers would like to hear from every farmer's wife who reads The Ranch as to the way they feel toward a household department in the paper —a department where matters of interest to the farmer's wife and daughter may be fully and freely discussed; where may be made hints and sugges tions for making the farm...
