latter. We would call it a camel-back rate, higher in the middle than at the end. That is not allowed by the inter state commerce law." H. B. Miller, of the transportation committee, spoke earnesly of the dif ficulties confronting fruit-growers in seeking to settle the freight troubles. He said the committee had been ap pointed to take hold of the question, and to attend to the business of the associa tion throughout the year. Shipments of fresh fruit have resulted in actual loss. One man last year lost $1,000 on freight alone, not counting cost of fruit. It was not carelessly packed or poor fruit. Many growers have lost heart and think that it is impossible to con tinue to make shipments of green fruit at a profit. He said he seriously ques tioned whether it could be done, and thought if the railroads realized how grave the outlook is, they would co-op erate in any way in their power to put the business on a better footing, as the interests of railroad and shipper are identical.

ADDRESS OF S. L MOORE. Before the Northwest Fruitgrower's As- sociation. :W* _ Noah Webster, in his magnificent reference work, gives the following definition of the word farmer: "A farmer is one who tills the soil, than which no occupation is more hon orable." He does not draw the line between the farmer who tills the soil for the production of wheat and vegetable! and the farmer who tills the soil in tho cultivation of berries, grape? and peaches. It is worthy of repetition here that "no occupation is more hon orable." Who would not be a farmer? Following this farther in the encyclo pedia, we find that a farmer possesses, not only land and orchards, but horses, cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry, a large portion of the crop being consumed by the stock: that the profits of farming fluctuate quite as much as those of any other trade; that if from yepr to year there is an improvement in the farm in the extent of its fertility, if the crops increase and at the same time the ma nure pile ...

12 HAY AND GRAIN. E. F. Bogardus, of (he firm of Lilly, Bogardus & Co., of Seattle, whose close study of the crop market conditions make him an authority on hay and grain, gave a representative some in teresting facts last week for publica tion. His expression of opinion points to a good season for prices on hay. Western Washington hay is not of as good a quality as that of the crop of '96. Hay was ready to cut the last of June, when a spell of rainy weather covering just the harvesting pel lod, prevented the hay from being cut and a great deal spoiled in the field. There has been a much greater demand on the Sound during the fall and winter months, and the future promises a still heavier trade, due to the Klondike movement. Hay in Eastern Washing ton is being fed very largely to the sheep and cattle on the farms, and it is noted that the farmers have not been in a hurry to ship, if they can feed at home. Prices in California are higher, so that that state la not entering our ma...

THE MA RK£f:S. The following is the condition of the markets in Seattle: The produce market is a little dull. Trade has been lighter the past two weeks but is looking up a little. The weather has been against it. Clear, CO ol weather would brighten things up. Potatoes have been coming in more freely but there is no .advance in price. They are quoted: Native potatoes, $11 kl3 per ton; White river Burbauks, $12@13; Yakimas, $14@15. Not many of the potatoes in the country have been shipped in yet. Onions are at a standstill at 2%@3 c ts, with a prospect of an advance in the future. Cabbages are %@lc a pound; pars nips 50@65c per sack. One dealer reports apples a drug on the market. Others are having a me dium sale at 50@60c for good and 65c @$1 for choice to fancy. Various prices are quoted by differ ent dealers on chickens; 10@llc for live, 11 to 13c for dressed. Eggs have dropped. Twenty-five cents is the highest price offered for ranch eggs, and from that down to 18c. The best marke...

14 The value of the alfalfa crop to Colo* rado is moderately estimated at $10,000-, 000 a year. The Arkansas valley in the southern part of the state yields more than one fourth of this amount annually. Every farmer in the state has one Beld of alfalfa and all agree that there is no other crop that giv*f more satisfact ory results. It is fed to stock on the ; ground, haled and shipped to market, or threshed for the seed, and however bundled pays a reasonable profit with out very heavy cost. Besides this it has proven the best nitrogenous renovator of the soil that agricultural science has yet discovered. In the region to which it is adapted it is undoubtedly the greatest forage crop grown in America. It yields three or four cuttings of hay which when prop erly used is superior to any other hay grown. It is so nearly a satisfactory ra tion that thousands of horses, cattle and sheep live entirely upon it for months at a time. Even work horses and cows in full flow of milk do quite wel...

RANCH AND RANGE Vol. 3, No, 48. Washington State Agricultural College, School of Science and Experiment Station. Through the liberality of the federal government every state in the Union has been provided with an agricultu ral college and an agicultural experi ment station. This magnificent provis ion for the welfare of the American farmer is maintained by the govern ment at an expense of nearly a million dollars annually; and so imprtant have been the investigations carried on by the experiment stations, and instruc tion afforded our farmers by the col leges, that it is certain that no other similar expenditure of the government brings so large a return to those for whose benefit it is made. In the mat ter of the purchasing of fertilizers alone, the saving to the farmers in each of several states due to control of the fertilizer trade by the experiment stations, amounts to more than the to tal cost of all the stations and colleges. Nothing short of a chemical analysis of a fertiliz...

2 was such as to encourage the effort to extend the course of instruction and make it a permanent feature of the college work. The dairy school is now provided with a modern creamery building, with complete butter and chpese-making apparatus of the most approved patterns; and with instructors who have had years of experience and excellent training in their special lines. The work in butter-making, cheese making and milk-testing is each placed <n charge of an instructor, who superintends the work of the students. THE COLLEGE FARM. The college farm consists of 190 acres of typical Palouse upland, in ad dition to the college campus, which embraces some 46 acres more. The farm proper is divided between the departments of horticulture and agri culture. The one part is devoted to ex periments with fruits, of which there are many hundred varieties growing, to garden vegetables, and forest trees. A large number of the latter are prop agated with a view to ascertaining what varieties of t...

At the head of this herd is the Jersey bull King of the Ledges, 45983. He is •>6 months old. He was formerly own ed by H. S. Hall, Scottsville, N. Y. Naiad's St. Lambert King was the sire of this bull, and his dam was Crocus of the Ledges. He is a fine-looking an imal and quite gentle. All of the herd are very gentle, being regular pets, in fact. It was a pretty sight to see them all go into the clean, well-arranged barn. Every animal knew its place and went there, even the calves a few months old making no mistake, but went where they belonged.

4 Agriculture in the Northwest. In my estimation, the outlook for agriculture in the Pacific Northwest was never better than for the year 1898. This general statement is sup ported by all the data obtainable from the farming sections. The winter so far has been very favorable, except for some of the low lands about Puget sound, and a continuance of the favor ing weather through the spring will give the farmers opportunity to add to the already large acreage of grain, and give Western Oregon, at least, an un precedented grain area for next sea son's harvest. The winter wheat crop is now first-class in every respect; it could not promise better. In the temp'rate districts of East ern and Cent.nl Oregon some sowing lias been done, but a great deal re mains for the spring. The snowfall there is satisfactory, and its melting will so saturate the soil that the ques tion of rain need not worry the farm ers; for good crops of grain have been harvested there that never saw a drop of rain.

6 The First Settler's Story. It ain't the funniest thing a man can do— Existing in a country when it's new; Nature, who moved in first—a good long while— T-r an things already somewhat her own style, Apd she don't want her woodland splen dors battered, Her rustic furniture broke up and scat tered, Her paintings, which long years ego were done By that old splendid artist-king, the Sun, Torn down and dragged in Civilization's gutter, Or sold to purchase settlers' b»-ead and butter. She don't want things exposed from porch to closet, And so she kind o' nags the man who does it. She carries in her pockets bags of seeds, As general agent of the thriftiest weeds; She sends her blackbirds, in the early morn, To superintend his fields of planted corn; She gives him rain past any duck's de sire— Then maybe several weeks of quiet fire; Ske sails mosquitoes—leeches perched on wings— To poison him with blood-devouring stings; She loves her ague-muscle to display, And shake him up—say every othe...
