LAKESIDE STOCK FARM.
Editor The Ranch:
1 send you by separate cover a cut
of my two herd bulls, one a year
ling and the other a two-year old.
Both gets of Lunde, Oregon, De Kul
H. H. B. No. 25563. First prize two
year old at the Oregon State fair in
1901, and first prize herd 1902, and
was first prize at Washington State
fair, and head of first prize herd. His
gets have won first and second prize
two years in succession at Oregon
State fair, and first and second at
Washington State fair in 1902.
Lunde Oregon De Kol is one of the
best Holstien bulls in America. His
mother, Cothilde, Lunde Artis, No.
39867 A. R. 1297 is one of the best
representatives of the breed. She
won second prize in the seven days' of
ficial Pan American Butter Test, which
was conducted by Professor H. H.
Wing of Cornell University and Pro
fessor F. Hickman of Ohio Agricul
tural Experiment Station.
She had been in milk 72 days at
the beginning of the test, she milked
407 lbs. and 13 1-3 lbs. butter fat, 34
lbs. solids not fat. Her official seven
days' butter test at two years is 16*4
from 317 lbs. milk taking a little over
23 lbs. of milk for a lb. butter. Her
six-year old seven days butter is 20
lbs. from 473 lbs. butter. You will
have to look a long time for a better
showing than this.
Lunde Oregon, De Kol, now nearly
four years old weighs 2150 lbs. His
calves are all large and well formed,
and nicely marked. I have quite a
few for sale as I am crowded for
Clothilde Graces, Sir Hengerueld.
No. 27484 is as fine a two-year old as
you can find any place. He won first
prize in his class two years in suc
cession at the Oregon State fair, and
first prize for two-year old at Wash
ington State fair and headed second
prize herd. His gets are nicely
formed and gives promise to be of the
finest quality. His mother is Clath
ilde Grace, with an official butter re
cord at two years old 11 2-3 lbs., in
S' yen days. Her dam is Aggie Grace,
imported, and the foundation of the
Aggie Grace family.
His grand dam is Hetherland Hen
gerveld, with an official butter record
in seven days of 26 2-3 lbs., and her
milk averaged 3.92 per cent butter fat.
He was sired by Manor De Kol. His
gets won first prize at N. Y. State
fair three years in succession. His
grand sire was De Kol 2. Netherland,
a son of old De Kol 2nd, with official
seven days butter, has a record of
26 lbs., and gave 536 lbs. milk. Her

Editor The Ranch: I was pleased
to see the piece writen by L.
Engelman, entitled "A Creamery Op
erator's Views." laim to do business
straight here and expect others I trade
with to do the same, it was just an
oversight I did not sign my name to
the piece I wrote, but do not think
for a minute I am afraid to fight my
own battles. I am here to stay and
I want to see the creameries stay and
do well. I do not believe in smooth
talk, I believe in plain facts, and if I
am doing wrong I want to know it. It
is true that some of our dairies are not
as they should be, and some cream
that is shipped to Seattle is surely
rotten when it gets there. It is hauled
from seven to ten miles in the hot sun
and sets in the depot until the next
day. Of course that hurts the good
cream that goes in. I use all ways I
can to keep my cows and barn clean,
and cream sweet. It is taken to the
train in time to go right off, and if
taken to the house as soon as it gets
there it is covered about three hours.
The smooth tongued solicitor has no
use for me, I talk too plain; but I do
not mean to hurt anybody's feelings.
HOLSTEINS OWNED BY P. A. FRAKFS.
It is only the truth that hurts.
We need a creamery here, we have
a splendid location, we have four saw
and shingle mills and a lath mill here
within two miles of us. I will lease a
building free of charge for ten years
at the forks of four roads. I would be
pleased to have anyone interested visit
my place and see for themselves. We
are eight miles from Seattle and in a
beautiful valley. Let us hear more
from the creamerymen and dairymen.
I am not too old to learn.

Larger Output Of Oleo.
As we get near the season when
oleomargarine has usually had its best
sale there is growing interest in the
output of the oleo factories. The in
crease in the make for October as
compared with September, was quite
unexpected, but it indicates a deter
mination on the part of manufacturers
to push their product into every
market where there is a possible
chance of getting a foothold.
There are undoubtedly some lots be
ing made that have a sufficient shade
of color to make the goods look like
genuine butter, but the prevailing color
is very light, and most of the makerp
seem disposed to build up a trade on
that class of stock.
The internal returns from the Chi
cago district show stamp sales for Oc
tober that indicate an output for the
month of 3,204,982 lbs. of oleo. This
includes 58,958 lbs. of colored oleo on
which a tax of 10c. a pound was paid.
This figures out 64,099 tubs of 50 lbs.
each. During October, 1901, the out
put was 3,276,680 lbs., equal to 65,533
flubs of 50 lbs. each. The difference
of only 71,700 lbs. shows how fast the
production is reaching the figure of
In September the output was 37,000
tubs, and in August 27,800 tubs, so
that for the three months the produc
tion of oleo in the Chicago district
alone amounts to 128,899 tubs of 50
