to get all the grass or clover they want. Do not soak the bread, as they do not like it so well. After five weeks give them a mash of two-thirds bran and one-third corn meal. If you wish to fatten them, after six weeks feed one hulf bran and one-half cracked corn, but do not let it be sloppy. Never al low goslings to go to the water to swim urtil they are fully feathered, and then only let those go that you wish to keep for breeders. Any of them will do as well if they never go swimming. Dur ing this period you must keep the old geese away, as they will fight the hen and molest the young. It will sometimes happen that you will hatch and raise a gosling with a broken wing. It is no serious fault at all) only a misformation in the egg. If it is a nice, large, promising bird do not kill it nor be apprehensive that it will breed broken-winged birds, for it will not. If the looks of it be unpleasant to you take a sharp knife and sever the crooked part at the joint. Bandage it and it will...

12 Europe in the finest delicatcssan stores at 80 cents and $1 a pound? And nave you ever heard of goose livers selling at $3 to $4 per dozen? That is for the livers only. You can sell lots of them every day in New York and other large cities —if you only have them. The Butter Market Steady. \V. J. Beggs gave a representative oi' this paper a statement as to the condi tion of that market. At present the market is steady with no prospect of an up or down change in the near future. In the East, Mr. Beggs never knew the price to be so low at this time of the year as it is now. Usually it is 24@25c there, now it is 18@20c. One great cause of this is that the London market is low. But ter is plentiful in England. An Elgin llll.) creamery contracted butter last liummer with a London iirm, to be de livered this winter. Now they are sell ing that butter in Chicago because the price is higher there than in London. The Eastern price affects the price here to a large extent. If it keeps on go ...

THE MARKETS. The two chief features of the mar ketn this week are wheat and hay. Wheat has been oil another boom. The hay market is very speculative and problematical. Wheat. —One cause of the boom in wheat was the active buying by G. E. French and J. Leiter, the heads of the big wheat combination. Mr. French said: "Basing our estimates on the government figures, we think we now own every bushel of surplus wheat in this country. We think there is not more than 15,000,000 bu. of wheat un accounted for. Scattered over different parts of the country we have holdings of at least that amount, so we can safe ly claim to have all the surplus." An other cause was that Russia must be goon buying, and the demand from Liverpool. The prospects in Argentine are that there will be a good exportable surplus, about 46,000,000 bu. The tendency has been up all the week except towards the last, when the price declined a little. On Jan. 24 wheat was 94 1 / £@9sc in Chicago; the price went up daily unti...

14 Feeding Fowls. If the hen possessed the sense of humor that is credited to the horse" and some other animals, she would surely find much to amuse her could she road the columns of "stuff" written on this subject. One writer says. "I never give my fowls corn, it is too heating, does not possess this or that quality, etc., and my results are so and so." Another one says, "Give a full ration of wheat in the morning, oats at noon and all the whole corn they will cat at night, just before going to roost." Nothing will do the next one but a hot mash in the morning and cracked corn at night and so on through the whole list. No two feeding alike. These several different methods of feed ing are particularly urged when it comes to feeding for eggs. Would it not b" well to adopt the saying of the Oracle of our little town back east who used to preface his remarks, when he wished to make them more than usually convincing, by saying, "Now let reason take place." I know within my circle of acq...

Acme Steam Canner. With the permission of the editor of this paper I am going to tell the readers of this paper something about one of the latest invention! by a woman. It is the Acne Steam Fruit and Vegetable Canner, one of the greatest labor saving machines ever placed before the public. Why do you go to the frozen north when you can have a Klondike at home? The Acme Steam Canner will prove a Klondike for anyone, male or female, who is willing to rustle. It is some thing new and differs greatly from any other steamer now on the market. It has only I" en recently patented yet thousands have already been pold. It. is something that will eventually be found in every kitchen. What a bless ing it will prove to the weary woman on the farm. No more standing over the kitchen stove cinning fruit when the mercury is frisking around in the 90s. You can put your jars in the steamer and entertain company in the cool sit ting room going out occasionally to look to the fire. I put np over 400 ja...

RANCH AND RANGE ISSUED EVERY WEEK. Vol. 3, No, 45. Valley of the Wenatchee. Clara V. Lanham in Wenatchee Advance. In the central part of the state of Washington, where the waters of the Wenatchee flow into the Columbia, is a land that stretches away along the western bank of the Columbia and far up the Wenatchee, that is known as the Wenatchee valley. The name is de rived from the beautiful river that ris es far away amid the snowy peaks of the Cascade range, and is of Indian or- This valley is peculiar in its forma tion. In the upper part we find a wooded country, but as the river de scends it widens out into sagebrush flats, sometimes on one side of the riv e;* and sometimes on the other, and again the hills almoßt meet, Near the mouth It Widens otit into a more ex tensive scope of country and forms the chief farming section of the region.

1 American Poultry Association, .J.K. Felch, the Notuck, Mass., has beed elected president of the American Poultry Association along with Theodore Sternberg as secretary and treasurer. The constitution and bylaws of the asso ciation having been so amended that the secretary and treasurer is eligible for re election. By the election of these two men the factions of the association which were headed by Felch on one side and Sternberg on the other have been amalgamated. Mr. Felch organized the Inter national Decimal Score Card Associa tion about 6 years ago which caused the greatest breach among the poultrymen of any action by anyone, but at the Boston meeting all differences have been settled and we have one great and grand organization all pulling for the same purpose. The following reselution was passed at this meeting: "The American Poultry Association recommends its standard to all associations but they can apply as they see fit," In other words any organization is recommended to ...

Soil Moisture. At a meeting held in Denver awhile back the subject of soil moisture came np for discussion. W. N'Byers told of ~n experiment tried with an orchard of ninety-two acres south of Denver. The ditch from which it received irrigation whs very uncertain ami often not enough water could be had for the young trees. The owners tried cultivating largely. The cultivator was kept running all summer and the mil finely pulverized and made ashy and soft. The trees were kept very low so as to shade the trunks and the ground around them, and the results were very satisfactory. Biiyg the Southwestern Stockman. Pro fessor Carpenter stated that he had visited the orchard and found that be low the few inches of ashy top soil the ground was moist. Mr. De Vinney re marked that in Arizona the Indians planted their corn on the sand hills, where they found that the moisture was retained better than on low ground.

6 Size of Range Horses. It has been said that 700 to 1,000 pound horses are what are generally found on the Western ranges. This is practically true. But it is asserted by some that it is wholly on account of want of winter feed that these horses do not grow to a greater size. We do not claim, say the Fletcher Bros., of Minnesota, in the Breeders' Gazette, that the same breeding will produce as large horses on the range as where they are wintered at the corn crib, but we do assert and are prepared to prove that as fine 1200 to 1300-pound or even 1400-pound horses can be and are grown on the range as can be found in any farm yard in the United States. They are even better, from the fact that they have never been confined to the limits of a small pasture in sum mer and to the farm yard in winter, where they are compelled to stand in filthy yards and heating manure sev eral months in succession, and where they have no opportunity to develop either muscle or lung power and where the fee...

Liquid Manure. A yerv convenient arrangement that I recently saw for saving the liquid manure in stables, 1 believe is worthy of description. It worked successfully and saved quite a loss of valuable fer tilizing material. Most barns with wooden floors have a gutter in the floor running along right behind the cows. There was also a gutter in this case, about 15 inches wide and 3or 4 inches deep. It was built to slant towards one end, so the liquid all ran off. From the end of the gutter another trough or gutter con veyed it to the cistern. This was just outside the barn. It was then dipped out of the cistern and used any time it was needed. Excellent results were ob tained from its use. This arrangement would be partic ularly valuable to one engaged in mar ket gardening and who had also a number of cattle which were kept in a barn. The manure then, both solid and liquid, would pay excellent profits if used on the garden. This is all right for some, but what is the use of talking abo...

10 Outlook for Evaporators. As some of onr readers will likely be thinking of starting up evaporators or dryers this year, pome remarks along that line will be of value. We will try and answer Boeh questions as : What is the demand now and in general? For what is the greatest demand? What are the prospects now and in the future? What are the prices? and similar ques tions. Those who were in a position to answer these queries, were asked for their opinions which are summed up below. The demand now is quite good. The Alaska trade uses a good deal of evapor ated goods, in fact, this is almost the only place where evaporated potatoes, onions and soup vegetables are used. If this trade increases very largely in the future, it will make a still greater de mand. The greatest call ia for onions, potatoes and apples. The main cause of the special call for onions is that they are scarce and high. Several evapor ators have closed down mainly because they could not get onions enough, cheap enou...

The Need of More Rational Cooking. There are a large number of ns (whether publishers or readers) who have but little of this world's riches. \nd I believe that even some of those who have, would be glad to have more of an improvement along this line of cooking. For what is the use of eating poorly cooked, unhealthy food when we can have well cooked, healthy food if we only know how. Or what is the use of paying as much or even double for the former kind that we would have to for the latter. I would like to see every farmer's family (and others) have on their table the most nutritious, palat able, and cheapest foods. Ido not mean hy ''cheapest" to live poorly. The victuals which cost most are not always the best in any sense of the word "best," nor vice versa. Some illustrations of this are given below. I had rather eat some cooks' cheap brown bread or mashed potatoes than other cooks' meats, pies and cakes. Let us think about this and see if by co-operation or some other way we may...

12 Co-operation in Buying Horses. Several veins ago horse companies were formed in almost every county in lowa for the purpose of buying improv ed stock. 8o long as the prices of stock held up, these companies were profit able. In fact, it whs about the only way in which the right kind of stock could be secured in any particular neighborhood.) Some of these oomptn ies met with losses, but the loss was in evitable, the result of the temporary collapse.of the horse industry. Some of them lost money because of injudicious purchases and others because of injudi cious management. We believe it would be wisdom on the part of farmers in every community to organize horse companies, being careful to avoid the mistakes made by their predecessors. The amount of stock required for the purchase of two or three stallions is rmall now, compared with ten years ago. Considerable more will be requir ed in another year, according to Wal laces' Farmer. Companies which lost money in closing out their bu...

14 EXTERMINATING WILD MORNING GLORY. Editor Ranch and Range—Dear Sir: Am seeking information in regard to how one may get rid of the wild morn ing glory when it has started, and how to keep it from spreading. Very truly, ONE OF YOUR READERS. North Yakima, Wash. There are only two ways that I know of to exterminate wild morning glory. The easiest way is to sow the land thickly with Japanese hemp, early in the spring, which will effectually smother any other weed. The next best thing is to go over the land every 10 or 12 days during the growing sea son with a straight-sweep cultivator, keeping them below the surface. If this is done thoroughly it will kill the plants, as they cannot survive a season without leaves. A. B. L. HORSE MEAT. The American Horse Meat Co., of New Jersey, has recently obtained a license, it is said, from the Kearny, N. J., authorities to carry on the busi ness of making sugar-cured horse hams, smoked horse tenderloins, pick led sideribs of horse, and plain salt...
