The 1909 catalogue pt out by the the
Empire Cream Separator Co., whose ad
vertisement Is appearing in the The
Ranch , is certainly a piece of work
that any companl can well be proud
of It is a beauty in appearance; it
is'artistic in design; it is replete with
Information for the cow-owner; the
cuts are excellent, and the line is so
complete that any rancher can choose a
machine to suit either his herd of from
five to one hundred cows or his pocket
book. Every man or woman who is in
terested in cream seperators should
send address at once for one of these
catalogues. It is worth reading.
The company is progressive, and its
phenomenal growth in the last ten years
demonstrates how popular its machine
must be. It claims its sales now are
forty times as great as eight years ago.
It has kept experts at work for years
making a study of just what would
make the best all-around separator for
the rancher to wear out. The result
you can see by reading its catalogue,
or examining its machine.
The machines are very simple in con
struction. They have just what gearing
is necessary to run the bowl, which con
sists of one drive wheel, which runs, the
worm shaft, and this operates directly
on the spindle of the bowl. After the
machines have been assembled and the
bowls carefully balanced and made to
run true, they are run several hours
with water, to test each machine, before
they are sent out to be placed on the
The company now has branches all
over the United States and Canada, with
the Pacific Coast branch located at Port

force of six traveling men with scores
of local agents to help supply the great
demand for this popular machine.
Prof. Clarence D. Lane, assistant
chief of the dairy division of the De
partment of Agriculture at Washing
ton, has made a suggestion to the
Chicago City Club that the mayor of
fer prizes, to be paid in gold, for each
baby which reaches the age of one
year. Pure milk is the subject which
led to the advice. Prof. Lane says
that such an offer, made in a munici
pality in Europe, has resulted in a
great decrease in the death rate
The suggestion is a good one and
far more sensible than a threat "I'll
take the law on you!" We believe it
is the Chinese who pay their physi
cians for keeping the people well. At
any rate the course proposed would
lead to a better inspection of those
who handle the milk between the pro
ducer and the consumer, and they
would no longer pass all their short
comings up to the farmer.

will need a separator. It is one of the
machines that will enable you to handle
the product from more cows and do it
easier than the old way. When you buy

is simple, durable, skims thoroughly,
is easily cleaned, and runs so easily

STOPPAGE AT POINT OF TEAT.
A very common trouble in the ordi
nary dairy is to find an animal with
the point of th« teat closed, either due
to a bruise of the teat itself or to
infection of the milk duct which
causes a little scab to form over the
point of the teat, and unless this is
properly handled with care and clean
liness, the infection is apt to cause a
loss of the entire quarter.
The proper manner in which to
handle and treat such cases is to
thoroughly wash the teat in an anti
septic solution, then dip a teat plug
into a healing ointment and insert it
into the point of the teat, allowing
same to remain from one milking to
another. In this manner closure of
the point of the teats can be overcome
in a very simple and satisfactory way.
Never use a milking tube if it can
be possibly avoided, as there is much
danger of infecting the entire quar
ter by the use of the tube.

DON'T SELL HOGS NOW.
Ho, ye swine breeders, lift up your
heads and rejoice! Your reward is near.
The time is at hand when you will reap
the harvest you deserve. See the hog
soaring aloft, as represented in the
Spokesman of April 16. The packers
of the coast have been keeping the price
of hogs down here while they were pay
ing more in the East for hogs to kill
on the Coast, knowing that the high
price of feed would drive all the near
by hogs into their net. But soon a
change will come. A demand will come
from the near-by wheat fields for hogs
to run in the stubble and to gather up
the waste around stacks.
So don't sacrifice now! Feed alfalfa
or some kind of roughage, get them
through the next three months some
how, and then it will be your turn to
We have been looking for this and
trying to get others to see the signs of

let your neighbor sacrifice stock to the
butcher that will raise a litter of pigs
for the fall, but buy them up and get
the profits that are sure to come to
those that are ready. Breeders in the
alfalfa sections will feel the demand
from the near-by wheat fields, or can
fit them for a higher market. Those
that prepared for this last fall will now
be the lucky ones.

If you are losing any cream at all, and if you are not using a New
lowa you certainly are, you ought to stop it by installing an lowa at
once. The New lowa has all the advantages found in other makes and a
lot of them not found in others. It has a waist low supply can. Its gearing
is enclosed. It has an outlet through the bottom of the bowl which
makes it easily cleaned. It is easy to operate and gets every bit of
butter fat. It has many other features too numerous to mention
