The poor field is always the most neg
'ected, because it will not produce as
inoob as one that is more fertile, the
farmer preferring to place his manure on
land from which he can secure more di
rect and remunerative results, the conse
quence being that one portion of the
farm becomes capable of producing all
kinds of crops, while the other portion in
time is abandoned m unprofitable. If

farmer to concentrate his efforts on a

ASSORTING AJTI.! >.
An incident is mentioned in the New
England Homestead to show' the greater
profit of carefully assorting market fruit
into different grades instead of selling it
mixed. Eight barrels of Baldwins were
equally divided, and lour barrels were
assorted in three of good quality and one
barrel left as poor ones. These and four
unassorted ones were sent as samp! - I
commission merchant. The three barrels I
of selected fruit sold for |2 20 a band, i
find the unassorted lot, made of mixed- i
up specimens, sold for only §1 50a barrel. I
Evidently the result was that when good
und bad were mixed together, the good !
specimens only made the rest appear
worse by contrast. The importance of grad"
ing has often been tested, and those who
understand and put it into practice have
learned an important source of proiit.
But another more important means is
high culture and skillful management,
which gives the difference between
crowded, small, wormy and distorted
specimens, and uniformly, well-grown,
tome and excellent fruit, obtained
by good culture, top dressing, thinning,
destroying insects, and good manage
ment generally. Very little assorting
will be required in the fruit from such

KEEP A XOTE BOOK.
It may seem like "damnable itera
tion" to urge the farmer to keep a note
book, but the advantages of doing so are
BO many and so many farmers yet neglect
to do so, that it is justifiable to present
this matter frequently. A successful
farmer of our acquaintance uses one of
the calendar and note pads to be got in
most bookstores—a leaf for memoranda
for each day of the year. He uses it, as
do business men. to remind him to do
this or that at a certain time in the future.
- that it prevents his neglecting
. but not altogether unim
portant matters, at the proper time, and
that he would not do without it or a simi
lar device for ten times the cost. The
fact just referred to. that many business
men use tins pad, is a good reason why
farmers should use it. It can be safely

on the middle of their backs and lift their
elbows high in the air, and then milk

frets the cows, and thpy hold back the
richest part of the milk. The milker
should sit down squarely beside the cow,
with his feet under him. With a firm
grasp and even pressure force the milk

best way is to alternate the streams of

FLOORING FOR HOBSE SIMILES.
John Burgett of Wisconsin says that
after many years' experience and
thorough trial of all kinds I have become
satisfied that clay floors, tamped solidly
to make them sufficiently hard, are by ail
odds the best for horse -stalls. They are
elastic without being soft, and have the
best possible effect on the hoofs. If
plenty of straw is kept on the iloor, as
should be on any floor, it will übsorb all !
liquid excrement, and besides prevent j
the shoe calks from seriously disturbing |
the clay. Earth iioors largely reduce the
cost of Shoeing, for they render the hoof
soft and tough, enabling it to stand more
wear and tear than when dry and brittle,
as they always are on wood or even con
crete iioors, though the last are preferable
to wood.—Western Agriculturalist.

by several ladies who have been victim

cates something detrimental, although as

; The baking powder the women peddle

Busy Fruit-Growers in a Pretty
Yolo Valley—Tancred and Its
JN THE SPRING OF LAST YEAB
Robert a. and Neal D. Ravker associate*
themselves with William McKay, all of Oafe
land, with a view of searching out a suitable
location in which to engage in the profitable
occupation of fruit-growing. After visiting
irany localities, they decided on the Capay
Valley, Yolo County, and the Rhodes tract at
Negotiations were opened with the Capay
Galley Land Company,'owning tho tract In
ration. With w. H. mi*, the General
Agent of that company, they arranged for th«
purchase or about 220 acres of foothill land
Thin being more than they hud thought of
taking for their own use, they spoke to a
number of friends about it. with the result
that tlie tract was divided among the follow
ing people: B. L. Hickok, 40 acres; WIT.
Barnctt, 20 acres; N. T. Greathead, 20 acre*
Mrs. L. Qreathead, 20 acres; \v\ McKay 20
acres; N. D. Barker, 20 acres; R. A. Barker,
20 acres; J. P. Brownlee, 20 MM; E. If. Ha*
lett, 10 acres; Joseph Barker, lo acres; A. W.
Kelly 10 acres, and Frederick Kelly, 10 acres,
So far this had been merely a private ven
ture of the gentlemen above named, but In
talking up the question of dividing tho land
already purchased, It was found that so many
more would like to join It than the area of the
purcUase would admit of, that it was sus
gested on all hands, "Why not pM some more
land and divide it up in the same way?"
Then followed the idea of a stock company to
take hold of a larger tract and arrange for the
cultivation of the whole of it, after subdividing
it according to the requirement of the sub
ccribers. A provisional board was formed, a
prospectus issued, and finally, on the oth of
June, 1890, the Western Co-operative Col
onization and Improvement Company was
dcly registered and proceeded to business,
with the following officers: President, Wnu
iavn McKay: Vice-Presideut, M. P. Brown;
Director.s-H. C. Ellis, Charles Brooke and
It. A. Barker; Secretary and General Manager,
Neal D. Barker; Solicitor, C. E. Snook; Treas
urer, First National Bank of Oakland.
The balance of the tract, ;*73 acre*, was par
chased. A contract was enten-d into for the
purchase ol a larye number or fruit trees
vines, etc. This early purchase of trees was
the means of savin- between $3,000 and
$4,000 to the company, the prices in some
cases having more tlian doubled since then.
The ideas which tho prospe-.-tus sei
have bc«n but slightly modiliert and the
progress of the company has been uninter
rupted. Thosp who went into it 'i.,ubtingly
have become enthusiastic, and llmost all the
members arranged to set out all their lands in
fruit trees, etc., tho first year. Consequently
In this, the first season, some 40,000 trees and
between 20.000 and 30.000 vines will h*
The satisfactory working of this scheme ha«
had the effect of attracting considerable at
tention to the work of the Colony Company,
and a number of people are now desirous of
Joining in with them. An additional 200
acres have been added to the sixty acres
For the company is predicted a very bright
future, as well as for the beautiful valley in
which their operations are conducted. How
this marvelous little garden has come to be so
long neglected Is a puzzle to every one who
has visited it, but one thing is very sure, and
that is that this neglect will never again be
felt in the valley.
The fruits set out are mostly of the standard
varieties—peaches, apricots, Bartlett poar3,
prunes, figs, raisin grapes, etc., whilo along
both sides of the avenues, throughout the
tract, walnuts will throw their graceful shade.
A considerable number ol citrus trees are also
being set out; quite a sufficient number to
demonstrate that these fruits can be success
fully grown in the valley, about which the
colonists appear to have no doubt, provided
proper care is given to the young trees. Neal
D. Barker, General Manager cf the company,
resides on the tract, and to his care is to be as
cribed much of the success of the venture.
Mention should be made of the town-site,
about which there is a pleasant innovation
which might with profit be followed by more
ambitious places. A small park of some three
acres has been laid out right in the center of
the town. This park it is proposed to beautify
by planting in it from time to time as many
of the beauties and curiosities of tree and
shrub life as may be obtained by diligent
search and a wise expenditure of money. It
Is not expected that Tancred will ever be a
large and busy city, but it is thought that it
can be made a very pleasant little place to
A petition has been circulated recently and
very largely signed, asking tha county to ac
cept Island avenue, on the colony tract, as a
county road, and to build a bridge across
Cache Creek at this point. In order to give the
settlors on the east side of the creek access to
Tancred Station. The Tancred colonUtsare
quite willing to give the newsnary right o*
way, and are very desirous of having a bridge
there, as the colony lands extend along both
sides of the stream. It is thought that it
would be a very wise expenditure ot public
money to grant them this very neoessary im
provement, as the operations of such com
panies are of widespread benefit to the whole
county and State. The attractions and com
forts of the cities are well known, but to thoso
who are willing to settle 011 the land and show
ttmt the country also affords attractions and
comforts and ways of maklug money pleas
antly, every inducement should be hel'A forth.
The following is a list of the principal mem
bers of the Tancred Colony, with the number
of acre? owned by each, rind a tact worthy ol
mention is that In each contract or deed is
sued by the Colony Company thoro Is a pro
vision that no intoxicating liqaor shall ever
be manufactured or sold en the land. Tho ap
