RANCH AND RANGE- Vol 3, No. 52. | ..FARMING IN THE PALOUSE COUNTRY \ r . ._____-__— By Prof. W. J. SPILLMAN, of the Washington Agricultural College.. Farming in the Palouse -country is almost synonymous with wheat raising. No other farm product is produced in greater quanti ty than is needed for home consumption. The usual complement of livestock consists of horses, a few cows, with usually a few hogs and chickens. Sheep are almost un known on the ranches, though they are very plentiful on the mountain ranges near by. A few farmers purchase bands of sheep in the spring, run them on their summer fal low, and sell them again in the fall, but this practice is not common. The horses are, for the most part, grade "cayuses;" that is, they are descended from the Indian ponies, known universally in this section as cay uses. While not plentiful, yet there are, in increasing numbers, grades from the \ im proved breeds, mostly of French Draft and Clyde amongst the heavier, and the Ameri can tr...

4 with what stock may be on the farm, or are kept down with the harrow or with specially constructed implements after the fashion of the English scuffler. These skim under the surface of the ground, cutting the roots of the oats, without otherwise dis turbing them. A few fanners purchase bands of sheep to eat down the oats on their summer fallow. In early fall, usually in September, this summer fallow is seeded to wheat, the amount of seed used being two to five pecks per acre. On the larger /anches the sowing is usually done with a broadcast seeder, several patterns of which are in use. The most common one resem bles a drill without hoes. The seed is sim ply scattered on the ground under the seed er and covered by the little plows that take the place of hoes on a drill. The smaller farms use drills, and it is almost universally conceded that drills give a more certain and uniform stand than seeders do. After the grain has germinated, most of the live stock on the farm is turned upo...

Cut No. 2 shows a header outfit at work. Cut No. 4 gives an excellent idea of the manner of threshing1 (headed grain. The ~ i. crews are all hired by the owner of the \\ machine, and are boarded at the cook wag on which is seen in the background. The I tent shown near the cook wagon is a lux ury in which few of the threshing crews in dulge. The manner of feeding headed grain into the machine by means of a derrick and endless apron is well shown in the cut. Crews have threshed over 4,000 bushels a day with outfits like that here figured. The wheat is not meaesured. The amount of it is estimated from the number of sacks filled. The sacks are not tied, but sewed. Sack sewing is a profession, and skilful sewers earn from three to three and a half dollars a day. . Two men receive the wheat i...

6 GRASSES FOR THE NORTHWEST. By A. B. Leckenby. The first rule in the arithmetic of stock growing is subs-traction of food from the earth and upon our ability to do this well depends largely our success in life. No person living but is more or less largely dependent upon grasses that grow and have more interest in better methods than are generally recognized. Remove at once all the grasses that grow and you destroy all that is dependent upon them; double the capacity of grass production by wiser methods and the introduction of varie ties better adapted to the conditions you will at once see the mighty advantage. To get some idea of what may be accomplished .on these lines we have only to observe what has resulted by lack of thought and wisdom in the past. It is a well known, homely fact, that many thousands of acres of land that naturally produced abundant food, have by over pastur ing and poor farming been almost or quite de stroyed. Acres of land so large as to be in comprehensibl...

We note that there was recently issued another patent on a churn, but we doubt very much if the churn surpasses or even equals the old-fashioned barrel or box churn. We have never fed carrots until this spring and had always supposed that they helped to color the butter. But since read ing Prof. Spill-nan's bulletin on feeding we have wondered if it is true. Here is a chance for the experiment station to give us some facts. A dairyman can hardly afford to carry out a thorough experiment on that point. In an examination in a dairy school ap peared the following question: "What are the important factors which influence the sanitary conditions or wholesomeness of milk?" One answer was: "A clean factory and a good smell." Minnesota carried ...

THE PEACE THAT CAME TO HIM. FROM TJIK NOBTHWEST SIAI.'AZINK. Continued from Last Week. Three years of hard work went by. John Curtis was counted one of the bright young lawyers of the city. One day, when there was an important case on hand, Jack sat waiting impatiently at a restaurant table, with a preoccupied scowl on his face, when all at once he found himself staring into the blue eyes of a young girl at a table opposite him, and became aware that he knew those eyes. Their owner was a little girl whom he had often taken to school on his sled when a boy; so he went over and shook hands with her, though with some trepidation, be cause she had grown to be a very stylish young lady now. It all seined quite like magic when he was seated at the table with her and they were talking of old times. She had graduated from college, she told him proudly- and was now in the city studying art at UK new art institute. And then she added another interesting piece of informa tion, to the effect th...

10 The Poultry Yard. s. M. SHIPLEY, INLECTICIDES. Eternal cleanliness is the price of healthy, • profitable poultry. _N Tine-tenths of the dis ease amongst poultry is attributable to the lack of this virtue alone. Start in at once cleaning about your buildinks, both inside and out. Give the inside of your hen houses a good spraying, at least once every four weeks during spring and summer. White-wash the walls and ceiling now, and before using the white wash add to a pailful of wash about a pint of crude carbolic acid, which your druggist will supply you with for about 50 cents. An excellent remedy for lice and mites is to spray the house thoroughly with kero sene emulsion. There are two formulas for making the kerosene emulsion which is used as an in secticide for all kinds of sucking insects, such as plant lice, rose bugs and others, as well as poultry. The formula given by Prof. A. J. Cook, of the Michigan Experiment Station, is as follows: Dissolve in two quarts of water one quar...

"Proprio Marie," said the reporter thoughtfully; then a quick look Ilasned in his keen gray eyes as he glanced toward Dorothy. With the spring, new hopes came to them. Dorothy relinquished her ambitious desires for Jack's political future; it seemed best to her to have him at home. She had hunted up one or two old Ohio friends, old ladies who had known her mother and who, not the least "English," cared nothing for the new order of things, and Dorothy was grow ing convinced that fashion and position were not the whole of life. -Notwithstand ing this, however.

KINO COUNTY HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. The monthly"meeting of the King County Fruitgrowers' Society, held Saturday, was an unusually lively and interesting session. C. N. Sandahl, the vice president, was in the chair, and called the meeting to order. The question of establishing a cannery in Seattle was brought out by County Fruit Inspector W. 11. Brown, who pointed out the great necessity of such an enterprise to preserve the large quantities of fruits of all kinds that were beyond all the calls of con sumption, being allowed' to waste on the farms, because of lack of proper means to take care of it. L. D. Fortney followed with some ideas of force along the same line, supplementing Mr. Brown's remarks. He also spoke on the matter of holding a fall exposition in Seat tle, and thought that it could be made a great success in every way He called the attention of farmers to the injustice being perpetrated by unreliable nurserymen in selling trees untrue to name and at rates below the cost ...

RANCH AND RANGE- Vol 1, No. .2 GROWING BULBS ON PUGET SOUND. Fairhaven Herald. There is no doubt that the growing of the different bulbs for market on Puget Sound will in the near future become an industry of great importance, and the field is open for some one to build up a very lucrative business. The marked feature to every one who has had any thing to do with bulbs over a series of years on this coast, is the rapid - increase of bulbs, and the remarkably short period in which bulbs mature, which in the main is accounted for by two causes, first, from the time the bulbs are planted or commence their fall growing, until after the blooming period, there is no cessation in growth on account of frost; and, secondly, during the summer months, that being their period of rest, the rainfall being very slight, the bulbs get thoroughly ripened off before the growing period commences again, insuring vigorous stock with a certainty of fine blooming. qualities. A visit some little time since ...

■1 FROM THE BROKER'S STANDPOINT. Impromptu Address delivered By R. Merchant at the Month ly Meeting of the King County Horticultural Society. It is hardly worth while for me to address you after you have been so ably entertained by Mr. Brown, Judge McGilvra and others, but I cannot resist the opportunity to put in a word in behalf of the wholesalers referred to by Judge McGilvra. I have been in the wholesale fruit and produce business in Seattle for the past 16 years, as some of you in this audience know, and my long experience with the trade of this state has taught me some ideas that might be of use to any one proposing to make fruit growing a business. Doea Not Love Us. In the first place don't think for a moment that any wholesaler cares for you or your inter ests whatever. What do .1 or my firm care for you farmers? We have troubles enough of our own. When a commission man or wholesaler tells you he is working for the interests of the farmer or producer he is simply giving you ...

may have some commission houses that may not render proper services to their shippers, but as a rule our commission men have more cause to kick than be kicked at.

6 ••DEVILED"" BUTTER THE NEW FOE. Process butter or "deviled" butter, the latter being the more fitting name, is the new fraud that is being put on sale in the Sound cities. One commission firm receives it regularly to supply the cheaep restaur ants and boarding houses, the proprietors of which seem determined to get the best of the legitimate creamery article. The Rural New Yorker thinks it can be downed and advocates measures as se vere as does the genial James Hart, who wants to make every substitute for regular dairy products wear the color of mourn ing. Here is an opinion from Prof. C. S. Plumb of Indiana: "I have visited such a butter factory as you refer to I have seen quantities of old butter that had grown rancid in groceries, brought into this factory, where it was melted and churned in milk or buttermilk and made over and shipped east to commis sion firms. This butter, as brought or ship ped into the factory, is offensive in appear ance and smell. It is fit only for soap ...
