on May 10th, after a most eventful voyage, haying been caught in the ice in the gulf of St. Lawrence. The forty head stood the trip excellently, being accompanied by a number of attend ants and having a large supply of feed aboard. The attendants have cre ated much amusement in their onward march toward California. Their large clumsy wooden shoes and square cut hair look odd enough amidst American surroundings. The cows, however, don't seem to mind at all but rather resent American fashions. Before leaving Quebec the animals were inspected by W. C. Hunt of Liver pool, New York, who was commis sioned by the Holstein-Friesian Asso ciation of America to examine the cat tle. The bull, Jetze, who heads this herd, he pronounced one of the finest animals he had ever seen. This bull was famous in Holland and said to be among the very best animals in that country. He has never been beaten in the prize ring and brings with him two medals, bearing the royal coat of arms. The females imported a...

I have never had any experience in the poultry business, but am putting in my summer vacation reading and studying up on the subject.

3helter should not be considered sec ondary in importance. i Shelter should greatly aid in main taining a uniform comfortable tem perature within reasonable limits and avoid excess of cold or heat. Shelter not only serves to protect the fowl from disease, but assists in nature's process in restoring the fowl to its normal condition. Through proper protection a saving of food is effected. Poultry that are subject to a temper ature of zero during the long winter nights and conditions but little more favorable during the daytime, require an additional amount of food, rich in carbonaceous or fat-forming elements, through the agency of which a normal temperature is maintained. Produc tion and health are the offsprings of judicious care and are the direct source of profit in poultry culture and health is maintained to an almost un limited degree by complying with nat ure's laws. While our poultry is sub ject to the ravages of vermin and dis ease, the result of which greatly les sens our f...

12 THE, FIELD Saving Seeds for Next Year. Seed houses sell their goods at such low prices and reliable houses can be depended on to furnish good, fertile seeds, true to name, that there is not very much incentive for the general farmer to save his own seeds, except in certain kinds of plants. The prac tice of saving one's own seed is a good one. however, and is to be rec ommended where the seeds saved are known to be up to the standard in ev ery way. The selection of seed should be from early ripening and peTfect fruit from the best plants. The seeds do not readily germinate until they have been exposed to frost, and may safely be kept dry for several months. If only a few are wanted the berries may be crushed on sheets of thick paper on which the name of the vari ety can be written and the adhering seeds and pulp thoroughly dried in the shade and packed away in small envelopes. In October they should be sown in a well prepared seed bed in a sheltered place in the garden or in boxes...

14 LIVE STOCK Attempt to Injure the National. In The Ranch of June 15th, appear ed an article entitled "The Sheepmen and Organization." and therein it was hinted that the sheepmen who are members of the National Wool Grow ers' Association, should lend their sup port to a new cattle growers' organi zation. The article was taken from the American Sheep Breeder and was so credited. The Ranch does not assume responsibility for the state ments contained therein, and printed the article because it appeared in a responsible publication. The eye of C. F. Martin, secretary of the National Live Stock association, fell upon the article, and he takes exception to cer tain statements made therein. In a letter to E. F. Benson, member of the executive committee of the Na tional Live Stock association for Washington, he states facts not gen erally understood by the stockmen. The Ranch takes pleasure in publish ing Secretary Martin's statements in full and commends them to the con sideration of both...

the wild animals do not attack them, while the sheep will scatter and are more easily caught. I have lost sheep from bears and lambs from wildcats, but have never lost a goat from the attacks of wild animals. Another thing about the goat: If they have a dry shed they are always at home and in the shed at night. They are much easier to handle than sheep, do not take as much feed in winter, their fleece is worth moTe than that of a sheep and they eat the brush that a sheep will not touch; they also eat ferns and thistles and do the work of clearing the brush that a man other wise would have to do. They will pasture on land that is worthless for other stock, of which land there is a plenty in western Washington. There ought to be one thousand goats in the state to where there is only one now, as the future of the farming depends mostly on the goat to do the clearing. Clover to Fatten Sheep. In fattening sheep the character of the fodder fed exercises an important influence. When corn o...

CONDITION OF THE GOLDEN GRAIN HARVEST The reports that have been pouring in from the wheat fields of central and eastern Washington cannot fail to impress one with the fine crop generally and the good yields that are being realized. With scarcely an exception, the statement is made that the crop turns out better than ex pected, both in yield and quality of the grain. Below are given a num ber of reports that have reached the office of The Ranch from the grain sections. A perusal of these will give the reader a good idea as to the crop situation. Colfax advices state that threshing is in full blast in many sections of Whitman county, and in all cases re ported the yield has been up to or above the expectations. The grain is of fine quality and will command top prices. At present buyers are offer ing 55c for club and 60c for bluestem wheat of the new crop, but no sales are reported. Buyers say that an advance of seve...

2 60 cents for club and 65 for bluestem. Buyers are offering 80 cents per hun dred for good brewing barley, but have been able to secure but two or three carloads. Farmers have formed a pool, asking 90 cents. Dealers decline to pay this, saying that the outlook does not justify buying grain at that price. Dayton is also becoming a corn pro ducing country. Corn grown upon summer fallowed land yields from 20 to 40 bushels per acre. One farmeT last year produced 16,000 bushels and this year will grow much more. No corn "is shipped out, but is fed by the growers to hogs and the fodder to cattle. Harvest is well under way in Asotin county. The acreage is the greatest in the history of the county and the yield is something enormous. Most of the harvesting is being done with combined harvesters, therefore there is no shortage of men. The wheat yield of the entire county will average between 45 and 50 bushels per aero at an estimate. Barley will yield an average of about 75 bushels to the a...

4 HORTICULTURAL NOTES Fruiting Imperfectly Done. >»,-,if. ii. E. Van Deman. Some of our leading varieties of fruits have the serious faults of either being deficient in pollen or their pol len is not effective on the antlers of their own flowers. This is often the cause of failure to bear abundantly and in some cases the fruit may be abund ant enough but lacking in develop ment. The comparative sterility of the Wild Goose plum is weH known by those who have been growing it with out near proximity of some other va riety having flowers that would pollen ate it. This was the first of our com mon fruits that drew special attention to this subject. It was found that without the presence and influence of other pollen very little fruit set and matured, and. wherever there were other plum trees of our native species blooming at the same time there was almost sure to be a good crop of Wild Goose, provided other conditions were favorable. Experiments and observa tions have proved that some...

r> THE DAIRY Cost and Profit in Buttermaking. In ttie dairy department of The Ranch for July 1, 1904, was an article headed: "Butter Prices During May." In the discussion you gave figures and statistics which, to people not knowing the conditions, were mislead ing, in that they state that the Sun nyside creameries charge consider able more for making up butter than the Seattle creameries. Taking your figures as given, I think we can show you that we do not get as much here as they do. Seattle creameries' direct charge is 2 to 2Ms Per lb., an average of 2Vic per lb.. six per cent, overrun is l^fcc per lb., leaving a gross profit of 3%c per lb., f. o. b., Seattle. Sunnyside creameries' direct charge is sx /^c per lb., five per cent, overrun allowed is lVic per lb., making a gross profit of 6%c per lb., f. o. b., farm house.

assistant tend to condemn all milking machines, especially those based upon the use of a centrifugal pump. Up to the present it has been thought that the superiority of hand milking is shown only by the quantity of milk ob tained; but now it is necessary to add the superiority from the viewpoint of richness in fatty matters. Although these facts would show machines to be useless which, it was thought, would some day solve the problem of mechanical milking, it is probable that more highly improved ones will eventually take their place. The principles upon which these new apparatus will be based will be those of the mechanical and intensive pro duction of nervous excitation at pres ent effected, unconsciously as it were, by manual treatment. It is not un likely even, and it is the logical con sequence of what has Just been said, that the milking machine of the future, based upon such principles, will be able to perform the operation of milk ing better and obtain a greater quan tity of...

There are many people who do not care to have the ducks laying before Febru ary, and late hatched ducklings would be just about right for that. If the ducklings are intended for stock they need not be forced to put on quite such rapid growth, and may have un limited green stuff, and all the water that they will drink up three times a day. whereas, if the ducklings are in tended for table they must be pushed along so as to be complete at ten weeks old. and must have no green stuff whatever, though celery may be fed abundantly. Also the food should, where possible, be mixed rather wet with sour or butter milk; and water given only twice daily...
