struct bat caves if we could get bats co inhabit them. Some small boys think it nice sport to kill all the bats they can find. If I had a small boy that would do that I would instruct him in the matter and then if he killed them he would need a cushion to sit on for some days after. I doubt not but in time we shall find other ways of ridding our orchards of this insect than the ones now in use. It is now claimed that a large red ant native to Central America is very de structive to the cotton boll weevil. The department of agriculture is pre paring to introduce these ants in large numbers into the cotton growing re gions of the United States. As far as tried they have proven very beneficial. Our entomologists are on the lookout for some parasite that will prey on the codling moth and help us to control its ravages. I believe in time we shall greatly lessen the damage wrought by this great enemy of the apple grower. * ♦ * On the 10th day of June this year we commenced to use Duchess ...

6 THE DAIRY Butter Prices During May. One of our subscribers in Sunnyside writes The Ranch as follows: "I am one of a number who sell cream to a local creamery. Said concern agrees to pay us Seattle market price less 5% cents for making. Would 20% cents be a fair price for high class cream ery butter on the Seattle market for the month of May? It was some 5 cents better last year." The query is pertinent and The Ranch is glad of an opportunity to make a few statements regarding the butter market. In Seattle during the month of May the price for native creamery butter on Western Avenue ranged from 20 to 22 cents. Previ ous to April 28 it was 23 cents and up. On that date it dropped to 22 cents and remained stationary until May 12, when it dropped to 20 cents. This price obtained until May 23, then went back to 22 cents and remained there until June 20. A decline to 20 cents again took place on June 20 and at the time of writing this, June 25, there is no change. The prices quot ed ar...

8 HOUSEHOLD MRS. S. C. BUTCHKK Communications for this department may be sent to Mrs. S. C. Butcher, Ellensburg, Wash., or direct to The Ranch. All ques tions will be carefully answered; contribu tions for publication are welcome. Economizing Time. There are so many little things to do each day that it is sometimes very discouraging to us. If there is no one to help with the work we must learn to economize our time or our kitchen work will become a drudgery. Have regular days for each kind of work and set apart a certain part of each day for rest. Then take the rest the same as many of the duties, at the time set apart for it. Keep everything In its proper place and have it a convenient one, thus saving steps. One loses time and strength by having to make various trips from garret to cellar In order to accomplish a piece of work. It takes no more time to clean and replace articles when done using them than it does to lay them aside to wash and ar range at some other time. Do not hur...

Blnnchard at Hadlock, Wash., or direct to The Ranch, Seattle. Feeding Little Ducklings. Art. 11.- Mrs. OOtaVIUI All. Ml. The first feed of little ducks should consist of nothing but fine egg-shells. When they learn to eat these up, a few rolled oats may be sprinkled onto a saucer of water and their bills can be just pushed in. For the first two weeks of their life they should be fed entirely on rolled oats, hard boiled eggs chopped up, shell and all and dog biscuits moistened till crumbly in warm water. This appears to be very strong feed, but little ducks have strong digestions and can dispose of food that would upset a chick or tur key poult. Fine sand must be sprin kled freely over all that the ducklings have to eat. This is one of the im portant rules that must not be broken. Another important rule is to restrict the wat...

The Strawberry Crown-Borer. J. F. Cnss, Hort. Inspr. In the strawberry fields of King county, and in several sections widely apart, the strawberry crown-borer, or a very closely allied species, is found. And in many places it is doing much damage. It (Analcis Frageria) is quite numerous east of Lake Washing ton, at several points. Also on Vashon Island. It is the "weevil" lately re ferred to as being found at Mrs. Spurr's place, and vicinity, at Northrup. The larvae of this insect, which eats within the crown and roots of the plant, is a small whitish, curved grub, 2 to 4 lines in length, with its head a coppery yellow. Early in June the grubs are transformed into the dark chestnut colored beetle which are at the present time found in large numbers in the soil at the base of the diseased plants. Later on in the season, in August, the beetles, it is believed, deposit their eggs close in upon the crown of the plants, which after hatching eat their way down into the enlarged portion of...

12 THE, FIELD Smut in the Seed Grain. Every grain grower knows that the question of stinking smut in wheat and other grains is a serious one. Statistics show that, by seeding un treated smutty seed, it lessens the yield of wheat from one to twelve bushels per acre and gives a poor qual ity of wheat, grading either no grade or rejected. An experiment conducted at the North Dakota experiment sta tion by Prof. Bolley, of the depart ment of botany and zoology, showed the following results: One plot of wheat seeded upon the same ground and on the same day, using smutty wheat treated and untreated, showed for the treated sample a yield of 27 bushels of hard wheat; for the un treated a yield of 17 bushels of a lighter grade of wheat. This un treated plot showed 28 per cent of ac tual smutted heads. This one exam ple serves to show how important it is that the seed grain should be abso lutely free from smut. It suggests that all grain growers should have, either individually or under co-ope...

14 LIVE STOCK Sales of Horses at World's Fair. Arrangements have been made by national horse breeders' associations for public sales of horses during the period of the horse show on the World's Fair grounds. The dates of the sales have been appointed by Col onel Mills, the chief of the department of live stock, as follows: Tuesday, August 30, Morgan horses; Wednes day, August 31, Percheron horses; Thursday, September 1, French draft horses. The highest class of horses has been assured for the above sales and there will be no lack of spirited competition. The rules of the expo sition provide that no sale exceed in number one hundred animals of one breed, such animals to be selected by their breed associations from those entered for prizes.

tendency and the digestive powers. And if these powers are vigorous and the process of fermentation is checked or intercepted, then no bad results will follow, the food will be digested, and salt will not be needed, though at any time this will assist in the pro cess of digestion. Salt keeps food from decaying until it can be digested and assimilated, and prolongs the time to allow the digestive organs to complete their work, and if food*is taken in ex cess, as often happens when stock is in pasture, salt given frequently will be of much advantage. And further, salt is a preventative of worms. When fermentation sets in, the conditions presented are favorable to the exist ence of worms in the intestinal canals, and may possibly be engendered by the process. Consequently it should be a rule with stockmen to keep salt before their cattle or within reach when they need it, and the cattle will obey the demands of nature and sup ply the want as needed. Modern Methods With Sheep. The man w...

They are there all intent on viewing the great fair, held to commemorate the acquisition by the United States of that vast territory known as the Louisi ana purchase, now comprising some of the largest and most promising states in the Union. This exposition is a second real world's fair, for the greatest fair of the kind ever held was the Columbian exposition at Chica go eleven years ago. The pro gress that has been made in this and other countries in the past decade is strikingly shown to the visitor at the St. Louis fair who was also at the Chica go fair.

Make your articles brief and write as often as you liUo. The Garden.- For many years we have drawn straw on our garden plot and early potato patch. We do this each spring just before plowing and planting seeds. We believe this to be a good plan: First, because we burn the tomato, pea and bean vines, thus getting rid of them and destroying lots of larvae; second, because It en riches the soil. We have our garden in the same place every season and it has got so mellow and loose that a plow will not scour there at all, yet seeds and plants grow wonderfully and mature quicker than in ground not treated thus; third, because we destroy and burn lots of weed seeds. There is hardly any trouble to keep it clean We plant everything in rows three feet apart and go through with a horse and cultivator.—W. F. K. Separator Springs.—lt appears t...

4 HORTICULTURAL NOTES The readers of The Ranch will be sorry to learn that Mr. F. Walden, the popular editor of our horticultural department, had the misfortune to break his right arm on June 27th, at his home near Toppenish. In addi tion to that, he has been very sick with bilious fever, which, happily, has been entirely broken up. The broken arm is doing quite as well as could be expected, but it will be some months before he can use it freely. It has been impossible for him to pre pare copy for the current issue of The Ranch, but as soon as he has gained strength to use his typewriter with his left hand, he says, he will send in his contributions again. Those correspondents of Mr. Walden's who are waiting to hear from him will understand by this note why their let ters are not yet answered. Shall We Cultivate Our Orchards? The following address was delivered at a recent meeting of the Missouri State Horticultural society by N. F. Murray, of Oregon, Mo. It is full of good suggesti...
