RANCH AND RANGE Vol. 3, N()- 41. Borne one has truly Baid <>r nature, "II1 you would control her forces, you must obey her laws.*' ' Thia is as applicable ;• the fruit grower as to the lightning tamer. This tnlk is not professional or specific -ii v b kind ot introduction with food for thought. !f it should prove profitable and pleas ant the conversation can be continued. Wha* we wanl to emphasize is thai we may so understand uatiire thai we will be enabled to obey her laws as applied to pruning. • With such a diversity of conflicting opinions, more or ieea wrong, it is not an easy matter to tell the beel way to prune and enable others to put it in practice. Y't such is the object of this article. It is an acknowledged fad thai trees and plants do better for one man (oftener a woman) than for some other one. and sometimes persons arc ac credited with a charm. It is a familiar expression, "Anything will grow or do well for him/ The secret is, they love them, attend to their wan...

4 Mrs. Jessie Thornton, in Webfoot Planter, says: In the ripening pro cess is where the drones come into use, and therefore should not be killed off. With their large wings they fan the air, keeping it in motion and thus causing the water to evaporate from the honey. I never saw a drone fan, never knew they were of any good, except for propagation, and keeping the brood warm in cool weather. In an apiary of 20 or 30 colonies we have more drones than we need for propagation when we do our best to keep them down. Certainly the smaller the apiary, the more drones per colony, as it requires a good many drones in the air when the queen makes her wedding flight, so she may have no trouble in mating on her first trip. It costs as much to raise three drones as it does five work ers; the workers gather the honey, the drones eat it. The workers do all the fanning necessary. It does not seem to make any diffrence whther there is honey coming in or not, if it is a hot day they fan to cool the a...

HE GOT THE THRESHER. George Frederick Henderson was a bright fellow, with an excellent ed ucation.fl sparkling intelligence, and a gifi of push thai had only one draw hack to it- -thai of sometimes pushing him too far. So it was not altogether strange that Qeofge Frederick, at the immature age of 24, should have been gifeD tlie somewhat important position of travelling salesman for a new thresher company. Gteorge got along very well through the selling season, fared first-rate in making easy settlements, hut his trouble began when it came to punching vi) late delinquents, although his "push," coupled with his own sense of im portance, carried him over many of the corduroy places that mark the col lector's road. One morning in .January George was called into the office of the "old man," who proceeded to say that Andrew Wilson, of Billville, had not paid a cent on his outfit and swore he would neither pay his note nor allow the rig to he "pulled," claiming the comi any had not fulfill...

fi Tacoma Poultry Show. The fourth annual poultry, pigeon and pet stock show, under the RUSpices of the Tacoma fanciers, was hold in that city commencing Dec. 28, 1897. and ending Jan. Ist, 1898. Without being guilty of over praise, we are safely within the lines of truth in styling it the beet, boh as to quality and numbers, of all similar exhibitions ever given in Western Washington. The hall was large, well lighted and the coops so arranged as to avoid crowd ing. In short the interior arrangement was all that could be desired for a per fect show with the single except in of an entire absence of decoration. This is a factor which ought not to be over looked, for the good effect of a fine dis play of fowls, as was certainly present in this case, could have been brightened by a little tasty decoration to hide bare walls and coops. The location was un fortunate, being too far out of the ordinary line of street travel. To this cause is to be attributed the light at tendance, for consi...

ing stock much improved over former years. The Leghorn men will, however be obliged to breed for a lighter shade of brown in backs of females. The black stripe in hackle and saddle of the males, so eaeerly sought after, for which the Empire strain is celebrated, has a tendency to produce too much dark color in the back of females. The Buff Leghorn di&play was hardly equal to the White and Brown though 0. H. Burnet Fred Ilton and C E. Durr each had some beauties. There was somewhat of a falling off of the MifiOrCM both in numbers and duality as compared with former years. Both Black and White were represented and some fine birds of each variety were noted. Of th^ former the successful competition were Fred. A. Johnson, A. H. Wanamaker, L. B. Stover and C. Nelson. Fred A. Johnson won everything in sight on his White Faced Black Spanish. Fine varieties of the Polish beauties were represented and the coops of Mrs. Emma Durr, C. H. Jennings and F. A. Johnson were bedecked with blue a...

in Editor Ranch and Range: Having noticed in gome of the last issues of your valuable journal considerable space being given the discussion of the liest method of spraying for the destruction of insect fruit pests, and this being a subject in my opinion second to none thai confronts the fruit growers' best interests, 1 take the liberty of asking you to publish a few facts, us I see them, pertaining to this very important question. If I differ from other writeis. 1 hope it will be in a friendly way. In the first place, 1 don't believe in -praying with Paris green or London purple or other kinds of arsenical poisons, For the following reasons, to wit: The leaves of a tree, shrub or plant are the lungs. Place a leaf of a cer tain species of tree under a powerful microscope, when the thermometer stands at 120 in the shade, and the observer can readily see the little, tender respiratory organs open and shut, gasping for breath, much the same as some of the lower orders of animal life.

It Is not pure and when some ol it i.« p t in a glass and water poured over it you can see the dirt settle in the. bottom. Use the Genesee. the Vacuum pan or the Dia mond Crystal. They are all good salts. Com. McDonald asked whether butter made from soft grass would keep as well as hard butter. Ryder: Yes, believe it would. Might require a little more salt.

The interest which has been awaken ed by the proposition to import the Kohlmeise or Great Titmous from Ger many is remarkable. While intelligent, horticulturists see no prospect of being able to produce perfect fruit without the »W °f tne spray pump there is a growing conviction of the need of en couraging in every way the development of the natural enemy of our insect pests. By the «id of law and public sentiment progress is being made in inducing neg ligent owners of fruit trees to keep them free from noxious insects. The time is nover likely to come when this can be fully accomplished. A still more diffi cult problem is encouutered when these insect! propogate upon trees in the woodlands. In many parts of Oregon wild crabapple trees are very abundant and in the sections which have longest been settled seedlings of common apples are becoming quite numerous in the woods. These trees give the codlin moth a chance to propogate without danger of molestation by man. If we can succeed i...

RANCH AND RANGE Vol. 3, No, 42. SALTING BUTTER. Ed.Kancji «Sc Rangk: A correspondent from M iratta,Wash., asks: 1. How loug should batter stand after salting before printing? 2, What proportion of salt should lte used? It is not necessary to let butter HtAtxJ at all after saltiug before printing, many good butter makers, however, take their butter out of the churn when in grains about the size of grains of wheat, spread it out on the worker, or let it stand in a tray, where it will drain for 15 to 30 m nutea before adding the salt. The amount of salt to u-e depends on the dry ness of the butter, the dryer the butter the less salt needed ;it also de pends on what your customers want. The amount used should be on the average, about an ounce to v pound of butter. Only the best grade of diary salt should be used. The ordinary salt we ;jet here in the west is very full of impurities, and is wholly unfit for dairy purposes. Most of the kinds that are extensively advertised as dairy salts ...

4 SPOKANE POULTRY SHOW- The Spokarc poultry show is once more a thing of history. It was a suc cess and a grand success. This is al most taken for granted since Spokane was back of it, and was managed by such men as Holster, Withers and John L. Smith. It was a success in attend ance, a success financially and educa tionally and a s? access in exhibits. This latter consisted of live and dressed poultry, pet st:;ck, eggs and dolls. At this show the Mime as at the fruit fair last fall, the attendance was small each morning, but increased in the after noon and a big corwd was present every evening. The exhibition disap pointed no one, or, if it did, they said nothing about it. Admiration and won der •: o all that 1 heard expressed. y'lOta early morning till late at night fr: 0 music was furnished to all.

necessary surface mulch of loose soil, believing that fewer roots will be in jured by this method. The texture of the land will largely determine what practice to adopt. If the land be loose and porous, with little tendency to hardpan, the cultivator will be all that is necessary to bring the land into proper condition after the winter rains; but if the land be of a heavy clayey compact nature, then, the breaking plow will be necessary to stir the land deep enough to admit air, and furnish conditions for the preparation of plant food. In the irrigated portions of the Pa cific slope, the land is usually of a light trxture a' r' is easily put in proper smI- faoe condition, and where water is abundant there is little difficulty in growing fine trees. On the west side of the Cascade range the orchard conditions are wholly dif frrent, here grass or sod orchards are the rule; the growing season opens up early and continues late, on the richer lands trees make an enormous growth, and do no...

6 fiOKTHWEST FHUIT GROCJUEHS' COjNLVEfITIOJSi. The fifth annual convention of the Northwest Fruit Growers' Association was called to order at 1:30 o'clock Jan. 11, at Portland, by President Blalock. After the reading of the minutes of ihe last meeting, President Blalock deliv ered his annual address, from which we reproduce the following extract: "It was nearly thirty years ago that I had my first dream of a horticultural paradise, as I read in the good old Bible story the report of that exploring committee which Moses sent out to search for the land of Canaan, and to bring back the fruit of the land.' Moses knew that the country which would grow the best fruits was the best for his people. "A few of us horticultural dreamers heard of the Oregon apple and the fer tile Walla Walla valley, and we came across the desert to the land of prom ise. My friends of Oregon, Washington and Idaho, we are glad we came, and we are glad to see the welcome in your faces. We have met to discuss the r...
