Here is a sandstone Cut Block Fireplace, made of the famous sand
stone from the original Tenino quarries. The Carnegie Library of
Seattle is built of this sandstone. The State Capitol building at Olym
pia is built of this stone. The Calvary Presbyterian Church of San
Francisco; the East Portland High School of Portland, Oregon; the
Methodist Episcopal Church at North Yakima, Washington; the First
Christian Church of Tacoma, Washington; the Women of Woodcraft
Building of Portland, Oregon; the Library building of Portland, Ore
gon; the First National Bank Building of Boise, Idaho, and the bank
building of Hayes, of Aberdeen, are all built of this famous and un
Some of this stone is almost too fine to be used as building mate
rial. Some of it is so fine as to be jewel-like in the closeness of its
grain and the beauty of its uniform color. Of this selected stone, we
are making fireplaces of especial and approved designs; beautiful bits
of artistic, architectural conception realized by the skill of the aitisan.
We are going to popuarize this Fireplace. Complete in every de
tail marked already for erection, these fireplaces of these most beaute
ous designs will be sold as low as $35.00 and as high as you want to
pay. Any mason can set them up. The cost of setting them up in
your home is little; very little.
Will you write us a postal card and let us know if you would like
to see our beautiful catalog? Your inquiry places you under no obli
gations. We want to show you how you can beautify your home, make
it more attractive, enhance its material value and make home seem
more like a home. Write us this postal card today and do it now.

WASHINGTON GRANGE GROWING.
This month we have only a few new
Granges to report, as our organizers
have been at home at work on their
farms, and so we have to report a lull
In the fine work that we have been
doing for some time. The new Granges

lecturer; Elmer Long, secretary, all

April 5, by Ernest M. Smith, with 27
We shall continue to have a few
Granges as time passes, but we cannot
look for such rapid growth during the
busy time of the year. Let us keep
up our Grange talk though, so every
body will be alive to the fact that the
Grange is just what the farmer needs
to assist him in getting his just de
serts. FRED W. LEWIS, Secretary.
GROWTH OF THE GRANGE.
For several quarters the state of
Washington has led all others in the
number of Granges organized, but al
though we have done well, and have
made a record that we are not asham
ed of, yet Michigan goes us a few bet
ter, and has carried off the honors
from beneath our grasp, they having
made a gain of 32 new Granges and
six re-organized, while we have only
twenty-eight reported, although there
was another that came on the first of
April, and one re-organized but not
reported in time to get it in that
The farmers all over the state are
waking up to the fact that there is a
big advantage to be gained by organ
ization, and it needs only a little work
in a great many parts, to form organ
izations which will become powerful
in many ways, in uplifting the farmer
and his family and giving him the
just rewards for his labor.
The Grange is being looked to more
than ever, to help the members to ob
tain their supplies without the inter
vention of so many middle-men, men
who do not yield us but a small iota
of benefit in return for the extra
cost that add to our supplies. We
are not unfriendly to this class of
men, but we do not need them, and
we see no reason for dividing our
money with them with no real benefit
in return for it. Their surplus and
their exactions diminish our profits.
Never in the history of our state has
this side of Grange activity been more
looked to, and we hope in this coming
year to develop a stronger interest in
this direction, and so make the Grange
much stronger and attractive to the
farming class of our people.
Washington is also among the lead
ing states in the adoption of denatur
ed alcohol as a fuel, and we hope
soon to be able to report one or
more distilleries in the state.
Our annual meeting of the State
Grange will be held at Ellensburg, on
June 1 to 5, and at this meeting will
be taken up many of the questions
that are attracting our attention at
present, and we hope to lay the founda
tion for a more earnest canvass of the
state in the line of Grange work, dur
ing the coming Grange year than we
have carried on this past year.
Oregon State Grange will meet this
year at McMinnville. The local Grange
and the business men of McMinnville
will unite in entertaining the visiting
members of the Order.

any other. No court, without stulti
fication, could construe it to mean
anything save what it so clearly ex
presses. There is no room for
judicial construction as to that sec
tion. Any court which undertook to
avoid the force and effect of that sec
tion by construing it to mean some
thing else, would simply be legislat
Under Section 3 a remarkable pro
vision appears. By its terms any
person who purchased and had in his
possession for sale a closed package of
apples not conforming to the speci
fications named, would not be safe,
unless he had carefully ascertained
the history of such package from the
time its contents were taken from
the trees until they reached his hands.
Before he would be safe in buying
any package not conforming, he
would first have to assure himself
that it had not crossed a state line
anywhere on the journey from the
parent tree. To attach such hazard
ous —not to say impossible—conditions
to the right of a man to buy non-con
forming fruit would amount practically
to a prohibition of the right. No man
would be willing to buy such a package
until he had first employed a detective
to ascertain just what sojourn tue
package had theretofore taken, or he
might get his immediate vendor to
execute him a good and sufficient
bond, guaranteeing that the package
had never crossed a state line.
The only difference between Sec
tion 3 and Section 7 is that the latter
clearly prohibits the use of closed
packages at all and under all circum
stances for interstate business, while
the former would seem to allow their
use, provided they were marked short,
etc., or conformed in other respects.
Section 11, I think, is unconstitu
tional, in that it discriminates in fa
vor of individuals and against "any
corporation, company society or as
sociation." Under the terms of that
section you could have your overseer,
Mr. Koch, violate the act without your
self becoming amenable Whereas, if
you and Mr. Able (who runs the fruit
farm adjoining your own jointly) un
der your partnership arrangement
should have your overseer do the same
thing you would both be personally
amenable. You and Mr. Able act
ing jointly and in concert would come
within the definition of a company,
society or association.
The "Lafean apple bill" is a bird
and I do not think it can become a
law, unless the committee to which
it has been referred shall recommend
it for passage without reading it.

More than 150,000 fruit trees will be
set in the vicinity of Brewster this
spring. That locality is developing
rapidly since the sale of State Col
lege lands last season.
McCLELLAND'S DXTBOO JEESETS.
Any Ranch readers who will need a
good boar or sow pig this fall can save
money by petting prices and buying
now C. McClelland of Sunnyslde, Wash,
is advertising his herd In the Ranch.
His herd is headed by Milton Wonder
83223. His sire was Milton Champion.
We have not seen this boar but Mr.
McClelland writes that he Is a grand
hog all around and hard to beat. He
is of the Wonder strain which were
great prize winners at St. Louis and
since that time at Missouri State Fair.
The Wonder Durocs are a strong and
very desirable blood line. Milton Won
der was bred by O. F. Scrimsher of
Milton, Oregon. In writing of his sows
Mr. McClelland said: "My sows are
daughters of the famous Ann Cherry
66276, bred by Jas Skirving, and from
Kvangeline 44918, which was one of
the best sows ever brought from Ne
braska. Nebraska Is taking the lead
in breeding toppy Durocs with Kansas
as a close second. The sows are sired
by Sunny Mac 61333. bred by G. G.
Fullerton of Dayton, Wash. He traces
back to the noted Tip Top Notcher. I
have some fine males out of the Red
Rose 208990 and Klickitat Chief, a son
of White Buster. I never hear any
thing but good words from my cus
tomers and I know by comparing: his
pigs with those of other breeders
that I have as good individuals
advice would be that those In need of
foundation stock get pigs sired by that
good boar, Milton Wonder and out of
those sows of his. .We will print a
picture of Dandy Jim, son of Ann Cher
ry 66276, next week. See advertisement
