WANT A CREAMERY.
Farmers of Sunn/side Invite Proposals
From Creamery Men.
Editor Ranch ia and Ranuk. : At a very
enthusiastic meeting of the farmers of
Sunnyside recently it ' whs unanimously
vosed to invite proposals from creni
men for the erection of a creamery plant
here. It, was also voted to offer a bonus
of one dollar -per cow for all cows fur
nishing cream the first year, also a free
Bite of one acre of ground. A cred
itable number of cows were pledged for
a starter with tfood . prospects of the
number beib^ doubled or trebled before
the year was out. An executive com
mittee was appointed of which .las.
Henderson was chosen secretary. This
section oilers a line opening to Home
practical creamery man who will put in
a permanent plant. . , U. I). Yoi;n<;.
Ranohß'ANU Ranuk can but give a
hearty second ! to tbo Rod JO of Sunny
side's people. The establishment of a
creamery in that valley will result profit
ably not only to the founder, but to the
community it will be a great benefit.
There is no section ■in the state where
such i\ variety of feeds can be raised in
greater quantities or at lower cost than
iv that district. It is the banner alfalfa
section—that monarch of dairy feeds—
and its acreage in that staple is rapidly
increasing/ The proposition is well
worth inquiring into by those who are
casting about for a good creamery loca
tion. • ■ '

A great many dairymen eoinplaiu of
their cows bloating on alfalfa or young
clover. Perhaps the greatest trouble is
in letting the alfalfa grow too large be
fore it is pastured. Alfalfa pasture
nhould be kept very short, so as to avoid
cows gorging by taking too big mouth
fuls. BloatiDg is also due In a large ex
tent to frosty clover and alfalfa, and to
eating while the moroinp dew is on the
plant. It occurs frequently too with
wilted clover and alfalfa.

hut ns I could see no grass I investigated
then*source of sustenance. I discovered
they were chewing on tome decayed
squashes. I fancy the owner did not
realizejhow he was injuring his pocket
book by forcing his cows to partake of
such putrid vegetation. The systems of
the cows are poisoned and the milk they
} ield is full of disease germs. There is
the secret of lbat man's failure. Wiili
an abundance of the richest dairy feeds
to bo obtained at the cheapest figures
there is no excuse for him. The medi
cine for him and many others is the en
lightenment of good dairy literature.
North Yam ma, Wash.
The Governor Makes a Good Appoiiu-
K. A. McDonald has been appointed
dairy commissioner of Washington. The
choice is very acceptable to our dairy
men. Mr. McDonald bus been until
recently proprietor of one of Tacoma'a
largest grocery establishments, and is
thoroughly qualified to fill the position.
The office now has a man who is not
only familiar with the details of the
butter and cheese industries but who
will apply business methods in dispatch
ing his manifold duties'.
The recommendation milde at a meet
ini!; of the Hlate Dairy Association of
F. J. Gheai for the position was ignored.

or ?.O at that meeting ami nine vvero
candidates for the office, the governor
was justified in concluding that the rec
ommendation was not an expression of
the dairying body of the state. Chcal is
well Informed on dairying subject! and
the interests of the ollioe would, no
doubt, have been well taken care of, had
he succeeded in his candieucy. But, it
would hive boon more fitting, and the
action more apt to have been consid
ered bad the selection of the Association
been a man of longer residence and
with more settled dairy interests. We
had hoped that Adam Stevens, of Kitti
las, would be the favored-.one, or if pol
itical features could by any possibility
have been set aside, the names of either

iipil satisfactory to all concerned.
