Growing Wheat and Its Consumption lj.«H'ently Secretary Wilson of the I), ; ntment of Agriculture called at tention to the fact that in most of the ,lder states wheat production per acre has fallen off, and points to this fact a s conclusive evidence that the soil element! in wheat production are be aming exhausted. No doubt there is mll( 'h truth in this. But it is very we H known by good farmers, who me thodically pursue a crop rotation which includes red clover and other legumlnoui plants followed by wheat, that the latter crop is grown in as large production as it ever was, and so there is nothing to become alarmed a t, lest the country should permanent ly I til below the demand for this great cereal. Soil humus and nitrogen are thi! great and essential elements in wheat growing. Red clover, cowpeas and other legumes supply both of these. In Southern Illinois where wheat soils became greatly exhausted fanners resorted to cowpea crops in the rotation, and the result on the follow...

While the weather is cold eggs* may be kept for a- month and then' be suitable for hatching purposes, pro vided they are not allowed to freeze. Keep them in a cool place, not un der 40 degrees, and turn them twicv a week. If wrapped in tissue pap it will be an advantage. It will en able one to select eggs from the best hens and retain them until the hens begin to sit, when the eggs will then be ready for use. This enables the farmer to be sure that his eggs are of his own stock, and he does not have to depend upon his neigh bors for his supply of eggs for sit ting.

Shorter Lactation Periods. Some dairymen are too greedy and „.'() prolong the milking period be .';, ] its natural limit. With others it is a question whether a cow suffers L vigor by milking eleven months JJ not. The following by Albert Loucks, in "Farming," gives some practical experience that is interest i n v • »I milk my cows nine and a half months of the year. I have had con siderable experience along this line, I have heard many a man say that if aCO was well cared for and well fed she could be milked eleven months as «ell as nine or ten. I wish to say right here I don't believe it. I had two cows that would give ten thou sand pounds of milk in nine and one half months. I gave one two and a half months' rest. The other I gave but one month. The next year the cow that got two and a half months' rest gave 3000 pounds more than the other. I had another cow that had a record of 55 pounds of milk per day.

12 Little Canner vs. Big Canner. Let me set forth the advantages of thp home canner and its compari son with the larger factory. Every friul groxer, even on *he smalkst scale, realizes that at times tnrough the season a means of saving his fruit other than depending on the markoi would be of groat advantage. Every trucker could work on a much safer basis if he had a canner with which to save tomatoes, beans, okra, kraut, etc., when he fails to find a saiisfactciy market. If people understood the matter rightly they would not depend on the market at all, but make a business tf canning. Tomatoes will bring 80 cents to $1 per bushel net, when canned. Snap beans will net from $3 to $4 per hun dred pounds; cabbage, $50 to $60 per ton as canned kraut; peaches $2 to $3 per bushel; cultivated black and dewberries $1.25 to $2 per crate. Why would you want to haul to market, or risk shipping to commission men? These figures are not theory, but are drawn from actual experience. I made some tes...

14 few good sheep, and certainly in this day, when there are so many good breeders striving to excel, offering their stock at very moderate prices, there is no excuse for any farmer to still be growing scrubs. A few sheep can be kept on every farm with a very email outlay and with profitable results. It is only when one undertakes to make a specialty of the sheep business that expense becomes apparent and trained expe rience necessary. A few sheep will keep fat picking up weeds and brush along the fence, feed that would not otherwise be utilized. They not only do this, but they keep the farm clean, which is of even as much importance to the following crop as it is a benefit to the sheep themselves. By all means, every faremr ought to grow a few sheep which Y.e would find a source of profit by producing two crops a year and without any apparent cost, as com pared with the cost of producing any crop that is regularly grown upon the farm for sale. Method of Castration. A correspondent ...

This is largely due to „ of fleeces and to shrinkage. In the face of these offers it is safe to ■ay that wool will not decline much, for the demand for wool in the face of these conditions would indicate that prices will remain firm. i Idaho last year'^ wools were 1), ivy; this year they will be light, Ba ya the Shepherd's Bulletin, so , ii so that a number of Idaho clips, as compared with those of last \ r are hardly recognizable.

THE RANCH . YOU XXII. NO. 2. By F. IValden. At the present time irri gation is much in the public mind and is receiving much attention from the press of the .country. Great schemes for irrigation are being in augurated and carried out, botli by the government and by corporations. This indi cates an immense develop ment of the arid and semi arid sections of the great west. Feeling that some light may be thrown on the sub ject of irrigation by some historical references and by a brief description of a typi cal case in the work done by the Sunnyside canal, this ar ticle is prepared. It is a mistake to conclude, as many do, that irrigation is a purely modern method of soil reclamation. George Rawlinson, in his "Seven Great Monarchies of the Ancient Eastern World," gives an iccount of irrigation prac tical by the Chaldeans be fore the days of Abraham, more than four thousand years ago. He describes one canal whose waters were taken from the Euphrates and was three hundred miles long. Suc...

2 miles of laterals that were built by the company to measure every man's wahr to him on his land, the com l»>.'i> bearing all loss by evaporation or seepage in reaching the land. In this particular this company, I am told, differs from most others, for generally the water is measured at. the main canal and the user bears the loss in reaching him. The amount of water appropriated by the Sunny side canal is 1054 cubic feet per sec ond. The highest amount yet carried by the canal is 825 cubic feet per sec ond. The canal will be widened as occasion requires till it will ultimately be one hundred feet at the top. Mr. Blame informs me that it was formerly thought necessary to make canals deep rather than wide on account of loss by exaporation but it has been ascertained that water from melted snow near by does not evaporate as readily as was supposed, and now the custom is to widen rather than deepen, and this is an important gain in safety to the banks. The amount of land covered ...

6 THE DAIRY Condition of Our Dairy Industry. State Dairy and Pure Food Com missioner McDonald hag prepared his fifth biennial report, covering the period from November 1, L 902, to No vember 1. 1904. It does not show so large a proportionate growth in the dairy industry of the state of Washington as was shown during the two years previous to the period cov ered by this report. But there was an increase in the amount of butter manufactured in the state during the last two years over the previous two years of nearly 1,500.000 pounds. For the year from November 1. 1902. to November 1, 1903. the number of creameries in the state was 412, whose total output was 6,970,173 pounds of butter. For the year from November 1, 1903, to November 1, 1904, the creameries numbered 421 and the output was 7;5G1i,7(59 pounds. This is an increase of 59G.596 pounds in favor of the last year, but it doe- not imply that the dairy industry has made such a large growth during the past year as it did two to fo...

The year 1902 was an exceptionally „ ,d one for the industry on account o the low price of hay. The next j ir a drouth in Oregon and the de ',, iiuls of the sheepmen sent hay to a almost prohibitive price, and as a result the dairy business decreased 60 per cent.

A mother writes: "My child, three years old, is so troubled with indi gestion that the physician has advised me to allow him no candy, cookies or other sweets. But when I refuse him these, he kicks and screams until I have to give them to him. Could you suggest some method of treatment or something I might use as a substi tute for the sweetmeats which would satisfy his appetite without being in jurious to him?" It is the duty of every mother to do that which is best for her child's health, regardless of the kicking and screaming. If a mother yields to her child because he kicks and screams, then the child has conquered and he soon learns to make things come his way by this method, while on the other hand, if she stands firm a...

That there is money in raising squabs for market tnere is no question. Squabs are al ways in demand and at good prices Particularly attractive is it to the farmer because there is sufficient grain wasted yearly around the aver age farm buildings to keep a flock of pigeons in feed. The care and attention required by the birds can easily be given by the farmer's wife or children. Instead of it being an irksome task it will ...
