STRIPPINQS—M. L. Matterson.
A supply of good books and papers would be of value if
used these long evenings, and perhaps be the means of keep
ing the boys and girls from going astray.
]£ a dairyman expects to be progressive he must be a
student. He can study the result of methods pursued by
others as well as himself, and profit thereby.
We are glad to note that Mr. McDonald is after those fel
lows who are violating our dairy laws. Let every dairyman
la the state give him a helping hand if possible.
Did you give the cows anything to be thankful for? Re
member it is not necessary to eat turkey to be thankful.
As we go about the streets now we are reminded that Christ
mas is near, and so begin to plan for presents to the various
friends. Don't forget that the cow is one of them if she
doesn't wear hose.
The man-afraid-of-his cow is never a good milker. If the
cow loves her milker half as well as she does her calf she will
never "hold up her milk" to him.—Farm, Stock and Home.
W. L. Carlyle, of Minnesota, says: "It has been my ex
perience that our best milking cows dropped their first calves
at about two years of age. If they are not bred until two
years old they invariably lay on fat, which tendency clings
to them through life whenever they are highly fed."

At Spokane the wholesale price of mutton has reached the
very high figure of 9 cents per pound. Itis predicted by deal
ers there that it will shortly be necessary to import mutton
from the East.

Sheep must be booming in Australia judging from the fact
that at a September sale there was sold a Merino ram for
$5,000. While that ram may have been the best in the land,
his instrinsic value could not have reached that enormous
amount of money. The man who bought the animal prob
ably had more money than he knew what to do with.
Potatoes are in firmer demand this week, although the
price remains the same. The rail lines having been tied up
by freshets, and the wagon roads having been rendered al
most impassable in many parts of Western Washington by
recent rains are causes having something to do with clear
ing the markets. The general opinion prevails that potatoes
will bring a fair price throughout the winter, although ex
perience has shown that it is not well to expect fancy prices.
