Ranche and Range. VOL. I, NO. 6. THE SUGAR BEET. A special from Washington, D. C, to the Spo kane Chronicle, May 7, says: Congressman W. C. Jones, who has taken np the matter of sugar beet cultivation in Eastern Washington with Secretary Wilson, is now able to advise those interested in that product that all experiments in the state of Washington have been left to the Agricultural College at Pullman, which has been furnished with a large quantity of seed, and farmers who desire to secure seed to experiment with the beet can get the same by making application to the Agricultural school. The Secretary of Aglicttl "Billie Bryan' and "Antoinette" Owned by Harry 11. Co/Her, Taeoma, Wash. ture has lately issued a pamphlet on the subject en titled "The Sugar Beet Culture; Seed, Develop ment, Manufacture and Statistics."

2 ProspeGts. STOCK IN DEMAND. Prices Are Advancing and the Outlook Better Than for Years. E. F. Benson, land examiner of tlie Northern Pacific railway, has returned from a trip through Eastern Washington. He brings back word that cattlemen throughout that section are selling off their cattle at lively rate, says the Led ger. They are being purchased chiefly by eastern cattlemen for shipment to Ne braska, Montana, Dakota and as far east as Chicago. The result of this wholesale selling of breeding cattle will be detri mental to the state in the long run, Mr. Benson thinks, for the reason that prices are now advancing and the number of marketable cattle will be decreased for a number of years to come. For three months, he says, cattle raisers have been selling off their stock at a rate which has made the movement almost a stampede. Traiuload after tramload have been ship ped, and the cattle buyers are still busy. The movement was started as the result of the low prices of corn rating i...

Hgrioulturs. FLAX CULTURE. Experiments in this State Prove That We Can Equal the Product of the Fam ous Districts of the Old World. "I believe that the stale of Washing ton can produce as fine a flax fibre as is grown in any part of the world." Thus spoke J. B. Powles to the editor on his recent visit to Seattle. 'I haw been making a series of exper iments near lliis city and although the methods pursued were necessarily crude, they were sufficiently successful to deter mine beyond i\ doubt lhat flax culture can be made one of Uie most profitable agricultural pursuits in Western Wash ington. There has been interested with me in conducting these experiments, H. 8. Mc- Gee, a native of Ireland, reared in the Max growing district! of that country.

I Horticulture. HORTICULTURE IN YAKIMA VALLEY. Address ot Joseph Lannin, of Sunnyside, Before the Convention of the North west Fruit Growers' Association. 1 have been requested to address your honorable holy upon the following themes: 1. The advantages ot Yakinin county as a fruit growing section. 2. The kinds of fruit best adapted lJ thi3 section. The cultivation of fruit is one of the oldest, if not the very oldest, employ inert eugaged in by man. We find fruit of various varieties celebrated in songs and stories handed down to us from the earliest times. The tirst man, according to Jewish tradition, was a horticulturist under the superintendence of hta Creator. The \vi<e king, when he referred to things beautiful, compared them to ap ples and to the apple tree. And dull in deed must be the mind that does not ex perience the sensation of pleasure when reading in the seventh book of the ' Odes say" by Homer a descripti >n of the splendid fruit grown in the trarden of Alcinous...

needed, fliis county is admirably adapt ed lo tbe cultivation of first-class fruit. 3d.— The Kinds of Fruit Best Adapt ed to This Section.— In reply, all varie ties grown in temperate climes will thrive and arrive at perfection, as has been ven fled beyond all doubt. Of course p.pples always stand at the bead of the list; but the question often asked is, what varie ties shall I plant for commercial profit? Out of oyer 18 0 varieties catalogued and described by Mr. Downing, and 100 or more since his time, one would suppose it easy to make a selection; but the fact that there are so many good vaiieties increases the diffi culty. It is admitted lhat in the mar kets of the world red winter varieties sell for the highest price. Of those vari eties I would plant the Esopus Spitzen burg, a native of New York; Jonathan, Baldwin, Ben Davis and Northern Spy. The Wealth, a native of Minnesota, is a fine red apple and worthy of a plate in every orchard. The Stark and Red Can ada are also good a...

A great man once said that the most important secret of success with crops is to remember to stir the soil. If people were more generally given to keeping an account with the cow, the pig and the or chard, there would soon come a different order of farming. It is worth the while of every reader to glance over the advertising columns in this journal every week. There is always something new and of profit among the announcements. The paragraph in our "Briefly Said" column credited to C. P. Wilcox is full of pith. It is true that laziness is killing more people than any amount of hustling and hard work.

sible condition, nnd requires the operator to dean it every night on quilting work, and to oil it thoroughly ami see that it is in the best condition before commencing to use it in the morning. If we give such care to an inanimate piece of ma chinery, why uot at the moat give equal cure to a living machine? Further, a manufacturer always examines a ma chine, aud when he finds it out of con dition or unfit for use, it is either re paired or sent to the serap-henp. Just so with a sheep. The man who would grow good breeding" stock must examine his ewes. If he finds any below his ideas of a good sheep he should feed it for mutton and sell it for what it will bring, tie must pursue the same course with the male and female lambs.

12 Whs Hpiary. INCREASE AND EXTRACTED HONEY. How to Obtain the Best Results With Both. Question. — Which is the beUer plan when working Ml apiary for extracting houey—to make the increase by natural swarming or bvdivision? If by division, when is the be&t lime to do it, white clo ver being the main plant giving surplus? Answer.—My favorite mode of increase is by natural swarming ; and ns a general rule I prefer such increase for the reason that I have found that colonies made by division lose much more time yetting ready for work than do the bees when permitted to follow the natural laws of increase. But there are exceptions to all general rules, and this is one of these ex ceptions. Should we desire, ever so badly, increase by natural swarming, it would be very little we should get if the colonies were worked to the best advant age for extracted honey. A good yield of extracted honey is obtained only by providing the colony with an extra 3et, or more, of empty combs, putting th...

After the colt has been trained co be cau be hitched and driven about wilt) some Mkfety, the nexl step is to teach him something about pulling. This is so sim ple a matter, that I am really ashamed to write anything about it. Yet thou sands of colts receive their first lesson in balking soon after being first hitched. In order to teach him to teach him to pull to his capacity, it is oulv necessity to increase his load so gradually that neith er you nor he will ever know when the pulling really begins. And if he is never overloaded afterwards lie will never balk. It is important to use caution in hitch- Ing the colt for the first lime to different kinds of implements mid vehicles.

Ranche and Range. vol. 1, no. 7. WASHINGTON'S FIRST SUGAR FACTORY. The Spokane Review of May 14 says: James Stewart, of Glasgow, Scotland, appeared yester day before the Spokane board of county commis sioners and presented a verbal application for the remission of taxes for five years on a proposed beet sugar factory at Waverly. He stated that he represents capitalists who had decided to es tablish a factory somewhere in this country, the investment aggregating about $300,000. He is favorably impressed with this locality, but will proceed from here to Oregon and California to complete his investigation. Members of the board expressed a desire to do anything within their power to encourage such an establishment in this county, but were not certain as to their power in the matter. The proposition was accordingly referred to the prosecuting attorney. Mr. Stew art was accompanied by Col. K. H. Morrison of Fairfield. + + + + + + OUR ILLUSTRATION.
