and it is thought that the officials of the bureau of animal industry will grant it. especially since the present season has been a very trying one to stockmen. Why Men Keep Poor Sires V "Why do farmers so often keep poor sires?" This question is answered by Prof. A. M. Soule in the following words: "The old idea or getting something for nothing is largely to blame for the. views held by many with reference to the value of improv ed sires, but it generally happens that the cheapest thing la the poorest in the end, and anything that comes without effort is not worth having." We know of many dairy farmers, both in the middle west and in the northwest, who keep a grade bull at the head of the herd.. The bull is graded up with all sorts of mixtures and the more mixed up he is in blood the better they like him. But they bought him because he was cheap. The cheaper he is the higher they val ue him. They hold a cent so close to the eye that they cannot see the moon behind it. The young man...

the postoffice department. This, to gether with the fact that our county ten years ago commenced the con struction of a system of wagon roads and has kept persistently at it from that time to the present, with the re sult that but very few isolated farms now remain, and Whatcom county claims, without fear of contradiction, to have more miles of good roads than any county or section of the great northwest. A fruit and vegetable cannery has lately been established in the county, which will no doubt soon be followed by others, thus making a home mar ket for a large amount of farm pro duce that would : otherwise go to waste. Whatcom county, as is the case in all the Puget Sound country, was but a few years ago a virgin forest, and the farmer had to hew his home out of the wilderness, and, while we have many acres of land being cultivated among the stumps, there are many broad fields now that show no indica tion of the former growth of timber; the binder is beginning to take the place of...

4 Commission House and the Rancher BY MRS. M. O. TIBBITS, CASHMERE, WASH. The business relations of these two important branches of the commerce of our state are not appreciated by a great many of the parties most di rectly interested. Quite a percentage of the commission men evidently think of the rancher as the traditional farm er, and do not realize that to be a successful rancher requires not only brains but education; and that, es pecially in this state, the rancher reads the daily papers, keeps a set of books, and in fact, attends to the busi ness part as carefully as to the rais ing of produce. Naturally anything except business treatment from other parties is dis tasteful to him, and when he receives a letter from the commission man, several weeks after he has shipped him a consignment, saying the lot sold for so much, part went to the dump, commission and express so much, bal ance check enclosed, he considers that he has not received fair treatment. Or, as in a case which r...

menced in the state to bring our high ways up to the highest degree of effi ciency, and how well the work is being done can best be seen by looking over the country and taking a drive over roads that five years ago were verita ble quagmires, in the western pari of the state, where the rains are so heavy from October to April, the need of good roads was imperative. How to build highways that would not soon fall to pieces under the heavy travel to which they were subjected has been a problem with the authorities, par ticularly so where the money at their disposal has been none too large in amount. The matter is being gradu ally solved. The country is being more thickly settled, more land is be ing put under cultivation, the people make more money and are glad to pay more taxes in order to enhance the value of their land. Good roads are a potent factor in the development of the country. Every property owner realizes this and is anxious to see the community have the most substantial hig...

10 Farmer's Relation to the Creamery BY HAZEN W. MAYNARD, OLYMPIA. The relationship of the farmer and the creameryman are mutual and in- terdependent. The patron's duties are to provide proper shelter for herd, cor rect type of floor and method of tying the animate, that they keep clean and comfortable, for if a cow is wet and uncomfortable, no matter how well fed, she cannot produce to her full capacity, not mentioning the drain on her vitality and the danger to her health. Then to feed as near as prac tical a full and a balanced ration, and to raise that feed upon the farm rather than buying it. With correct stable conditions, the cow can be kept in out of the storms during the win ter or rainy season, which is not only humane but profitable. In defining floors, water tight trenches are best, for the liquid manure represents sixty five per cent of the value of the en tire quantity. We regret that there are many herds of such type of indi viduals that could not be profitable dairy ...

14 Poultry in Western Washington We do not know, nor can we con ceive, of a place better suited to the poultry business, than is western Washington. The obstacles to success, so far as natural conditions go, are here reduced. to the minimum no season of the year do the climatic conditions call for expensive houses in order to secure the required combort for the fowls. A prominent poultry authority, living in one of the New England states, lately said that in estimating the cost of a suitable house for poultry in that climate for all sea sons of the year, no less than from $50 to $75 would be required for a house for twenty-five hens; and for a larger number of hens the cost would range in about the same proportion. This is at the rate of from $2.00 to $3.00 per —allowing five square feet of floor space for each fowl. The writer finds that here in Western Washington the cost of suitable houses, securing to the fowls all of the necessary comforts and all conveni ences, including pipin...

16 Diseases Common to Ducks ART. VI.—MRS. OCTAVIUS ALLEN. Ducks are quite unlike chickens in respect to disease. The diseases to which chickens are liable would fill a small dictionary, whereas ducks are limited to a few. As a rule ducks are supposed to be hardier than chickens, but though they can stand a great deal that a chicken cannot, yet they are much more likely to suffer from rheu matism, tuberculosis and cramps than any other kind of domestic fowl. To prevent rheumatism it is important to have the ducks housed on a wooden floor with plenty of dry litter spread over it. Moreover, they should be shut up in dry, though open quarters every night as soon as the weather be comes wet or cold. As a rule the lungs do not become readily affected after the ducklings are a few weeks old, and I have found that it is in nearly all cases caused by chilling in the first few hours after hatching out. Sometimes ducks suffer from a kind of gape worm, probably from swallowing worms carrying em...
