._> HOUSEHOLD MRS. S. C. BUTCHER Communications for this department may be sent to Mrs. S. C. Butcher. Ellenebur*. Wash., or direct to The Ranch. All suc tions will be carefully answered: contribu tions for publication are welcome. "Thanksgiving" One day of each year is set apart for giving thanks unto the Lord for blessings received from His hand dur ing the year. It comes late in the fall, after all the crops have been gathered in and we can see how very bountiful the harvest has been. The farmers, it seems to me, can see more reasons for thankfulness than any other class of people. They live so close to nature and gather with their own hands the grain from the fields and fruit from the trees. It comes directly from the storehouse of God. It is true that those who have money may buy, but the wage earners of the city and town live up to their income so closely that they have but little to show for their labors and seeming but little to be thankful for, when compared with the ave...

4 HORTICULTURAL NOTES F. Walden: Though I have fre quently sought advice from you, and have as often felt under obligation for the favor of replies—either per sonally or through The Ranch—l now "come again." I am contemplating planting a small commercial apple orchard 6 to 10 —and would like to be advised as to what varieties to plant. I like the rapid growth and early and abund ant bearing of the Ben Davis, and am somewhat disposed to plant it; but one nurseryman informs me that the Wagener, Grimes Golden and Rome Beauty grow as rapidly and bear as early and abundantly as the Ben Da vis. What do you think of them? I want one or two, or three varieties for the main body of trees, and want those that will prove most profitable. I am not skilled in fruit growing, hav ing been chiefly engaged in dairying. W. M. Scott, Kiona, Wn. In reply to friend Scott's inquiries, I would say that such things are al ways in order. The Ranch is pub lished for the purpose of helping its patrons. Send o...

6 THE DAIRY Tuberculosis in Dairy Cattle. Editor The Ranch: Referring to your article in your issue of tne Ist instant, I would say that the 97 dairy cows which you referred to as hav ing been pronounced tuberculous be cause of their having given a decided reaction to tuberculin must be looked upon as diseased, and therefore as a more or less menace to the people consuming their milk and to the healthy live stock with which they come in contact. Tnere will be mailed to your ad dress, under separate cover, Bulletins Nos. 44 and 53 of this Bureau, and also a reprint from the Yearbook of the Department of Agriculture for 1901. A careful perusal of these publications will show that the tuber cu in test is very reliable for the detection of tuberculosis in cattle, and further, that cows which have reacted to this test may shed viru lent tubercle baci.li with their milk even though their udders give no clinical evidence of the presence of tubercular lesions. Recent investiga tions have pr...

intoxication, produced by the absorp fnn of toxins from the uterus This "ns a great advance over the theories which up to this time had been con sidered Nevertheless, the medication recommended by this writer, which lined at the antiseptic treatment of [he womb, failed to decrease the Seat mortality of' the disease, and hi- theory was finally entirely super ceded in 1897 by that of J. Schmidt. of Kolding, Denmark. This able in es hgator first directed attention to ward the udder by claiming (as Schmidt, of Muhlheim, had done) that the disease was an auto-intoxication, but produced by the absorption from the udder of leucomaines, resulting from the decomposition of the first milk (colostrum). Following up this idea Schmidt considered that the treatment should be directed toward retarding the secretion of the udder and at the same time neutralizing the leucomaines, or toxines, already pres ent, by the use of some antitoxic agent. He therefore advocated the injection of the udder with ...

8 The Farmer as a Buyer. Take the average man who lives in a city and works in an office, he gets down town between eight and nine o'clock in the morning; reads his pa per on the train and slams up his roll-top desk, and pokes his nose in it, like a pig rooting in a trough, till lunch time. Then he goes out to lunch; that takes him two mortal hours, and by the time he gets back he has to begin figuring on catching the four forty-five train. He buys a wad of penny papers as he skips across town, and reads them by head lines, shedding the sheets as he speeds along. By the time he is five min utes from home he has nothing to read, and he glares at the car-advertis ing till he hates all the advertisers and looks at his watch for diversion. At home if he reads he reads a book, and rarely a magazine. His wifelike most American wives —keeps the home, the culture and the religion of the family in her name. She takes a bunch of magazines and keeps them strewn obviously around on the reading ...

Rhine that would do the work, but the formers found them seriously imprac tical The machines, which are ap i reiitly on the suction principle, were made of a large amount of piping and tubing consisting of rubber which prevented perfectly cleaning. So se rious was this fault that the Borden Condensed Milk Co. found much trou ble on account of sour milk and came to the conclusion that if farmers would continue to use the machines the company would not receive their milk. It was also found that it did not milk the cows clean and that some cows failed to give down their milk at all, all of which was contrary to the claim's of the agents who sold them. It looks as though the flying machine will materialize before the milking machine. A BEAUTIFUL EXHIBIT. One of the handsomest booths in the Agricultural Building, a booth of pure white and gold, is the World's Fair home of the Empire Cream Separator.

I have a place on the east side of Lake Washington, with western expos ure, on which I am thinking of start ing a chicken ranch. Will you oblige me with information on the following points? What is the best time of the year to start? What is the best breed of chickens for laying, also for boilers for the market? Starting in a comparatively small way, what would be the best number of chickens to start with? Would you advise an absolutely pure breed, or would cross bred ones be better?

Gasoline Engines on the Farm. The use of gasoline engines as a means of furnishing power is spread ing rapidly. Farmers find that they an be employed in many ways—for operating pumping plants, separators, churns, feed grinders, sawing ma chines, sprayers, etc. We publish an illustration herewith which shows a Fairbanks gasoline engine operating a'hop sprayer for Mr. B. S. Fryar of Sumner, Wash. Mr. Fryar writes us as follows: Miller Freeman, Esq., Seattle, Wash. Dear Sir: The Fairbanks-Morse two horse power gasoline engine, pur- chased of Geo. B. Adair & Son, July, 1904, has given us entire satisfaction with the Gould triple cylinder pump. We believe we have the most perfect power sprayer that we have seen and capable of doing a greater range of work than any other spraying outfit on the market, and any one capable of driving a wagon can run it. After starting it we were not delayed five minutes during spraying season. I recommend either Fairbank Morse engine and Gould pump to a...

12 LIVE STOCK Geo. D. McLean's Stock Sale. There will be a splendid opportu nity to secure some good bargains in pure-bred Shorthorn cattle at the public sale of ihe herd owned by Geo. D. McLean, at Mt. Vernon, Dec. 14th. Mr. McLean is a pioneer of Skagit county, and ha 3 taken a great deal of interest in pure-bred stock-raising for some years. The Holstein Friesians at Home. Before the New York State Breed ers' Association not long ago S. Hoxie, one of the best-known breeders of Holstein-Friesians in the country, spoke as follows: "Holstein-Friesian cattle have been produced by an environment in which the peasant farmers of North Hol land and Friesland have unconsciously taken a large and very essential part. These peasants are the descendants of the ancient Friesians, of which Tacitus wrote nearly two thousand years ago, that they were peaceable cattle breeders dwelling on the shores of the North sea. How they were then protected in this peaceable occu pation amid the roving, pira...

out of place to refer to tne productive-1 ness of these cattle in the province of Friesland. In 1874, before oleomar-1 garine was known, England imported from this province 40,763 hundred weight of cheese and 266.041 hun dredweight of butter. I quote these figures from Chambers, Encyclopedia. The area of this province is 1,253 ', iare miles, about that of Herkimer county in this state. In 1879 a cen sus of cows was taken and found to be 144,802. If there was a like num ber in 1874, England's importation of butter from that province that year. averaged 204% pounds to every cow of whatever age or condition. Irrigation in Northern Italy. Irrigation by English speaking peo pie has been practiced in this country little more than 50 years, while in Italy it has been practiced for more than 500 years. It is, therefore, nat ural that Italian experience should be able to show much of value to American irrigators. For the purpose of determining what could be learned in that country which coul...

Furthermore, we have established several county training cchools, whose particular function Is to educate the teachers of the coun try schools which take the country farm boy and give him instruction something like that now given in the short course of our agricultural col lege.

4 HORTICULTURAL NOTES I wish to call attention to the Can ada Red as one of our very best win ter apples. I have but two trees, but the way they bear and the appearance and quality of the fruit, as well as its keeping, show that this is a very valuable apple. The crop is about the same every year. This is an impor tant point in favor of any app'e. Some apples bear a full crop only every other year. It not infrequently hap pens that when the crop is large the price is low and when the price is high there are but few apples to sell. The Ben Davis, Winesap. Rome Beauty Mo. Pippin and Jonathan are annual bearers and make un one year the shortage of another. There ore other anples like Grime's Golden Black Twig. Vandevere. Rhode Island Greening and Walbridge that will be short every other year. The Canada Red. however, is one of the annual bearers with me. It is one of the prettiest apnles that grows. It is ■. deep red and its fine color extends all over the opnlp. The nualitv is first r...
