Ovkr 75 per cent, of the wheat
crop of the Palouse country is in
the sack. The weather has been
such that several machines in this
vicinity have made the run since
they started, a month ago, without
losing a day's time. This, coupled
with the fact that the grain ripened
fully two weeks earlier than usual
this year, a§counts for the advanced
stage of harvesting operations. The
yield has been average, or above, I
and of a quality to make any east- i
erner envy the Palouse farmer.
It begins to look as though the
electric road through the Palouse
country is to be more than a mere
"dream." A party composed of
several promoters of the scheme re
cently passed through here on a
tour of inspection of the proposed
ltnes and were delighted wiih the
prospects. Those interested in the
project have secured a franchise
from the county commissioners un
der the conditions that the work is
to be under way within a year after
its granting. This line will be a
great help to the farmer in the
marketing of his produce and we
trust that our hopes will be real
Cut and Thresh for 40c an Acre.
One of the best crops of the year
so far reported was harvested by |
Fred Hungate on his farm, 10 miles!
south of Pullman. Mr. Hungate
had 350 acres of Red Russian wheat,
which averaged4B bushels per acre.
He sold the crop for 68 cents per'
bushel, which brought a gross re-1
turn of $32.64 per acre, which is
about the cash value of the land.
Mr. Hungate harvested his crop
with a combined header and thresh
er, and his experience will be of in
terest to all wheat growers in show
ing the economy of this method of
Mr. Hungate says his cash outlay
for harvesting the crop was $136.50
or an average of $7 per day for op
erating the machine. He cut his
crop in 19 1.. days, an average of
about 18 acresj)er day, which is not
up to the usual average of these ma
chines. The cash expense for cut
ting and threshing the crop was less
than 40 cents per acre. This does
not include the wages of Mr. Hun
gate and his teams, but is the ac
tual cash expense paid lor help,etc.,
independent of Ins own work and
that of his teams.
Under the old method of harvest
ing it would have cost to hire all
work done Si. 50 per acre to head
the grain and six cents per bushel,
or $2.ss to thresh the crop. Thus
the profits on this big yield of grain
are greatly increased, and Mr. Hun
gate will probably make as much
dear profit from his crop as any
farmer in Washington this year.
Alter allowing liberal wages for
himself and teams in seeding and
harvesting the grain and all ex
penses his net profits will probably
exceed $25 pel acre for the entire
Good Stock Exhibit.
Superintendent John 1.. Smith of
the Spokane [nterstate fair Btock
flepartmenl says there is every
prospeol of a« good an exhibition of
stork this year as there ever has
been in the past. in fact it is
probable there will be more cattle.
more horsefl and better grades of
both this year than there were last
year and every one who attended
the fair last year will remember
that the stuck department was very
fine. Already Mr. Smith has re
ceived definite assurances of the
coming of a 8 many head of cattle
M were exhibited last year, and in
the list he has not counted any of
the stock from the Spokane breed
ers which will add considerably 10
this number. Besides these there
will undoubtedly be other stock
taken to Spokane which has not
been exhibited there before and
which has not been reported.
The railroads will bring stock to
the fair for the usual rates and will
return it free of charge if it was ex
hibited at the fair. If the stock is
traveling the circuit of fairs the
rates on the railroads will be ad
justed so they will be satisfactory.
