Lievers of Douglas. The wedding has been delayed until Mr. Lievers* mother returns from Iowa. She is now on her way north, on steamship Jefferson. STOCK FARMING IS VERY SUCCESSFUL IN TANANA REGION "Any doubt as to the actual possi bility of raising stock In the Yukon Tanana country" writes Huge G. Bennett in his recent report to the Department of Agriculture, "Is easily removed by the fact that fine speci mens of cattle and hogs are raised there, and that successful dairies are I operated. The same point Is also gained by the fact that large quanti ties of native grass, and grain hay.! as well as vetch, root crops and oth er forms of forage are produced with I no difficulty whatever. Cattle and hogs can be raised on the products of the region, and the vast extent of land adapted to the production of necessary 'feed points to the possibil ity of successfully establishing Im portant industries in the raising or j stock or dairying or both. Dairying appears to be the most promising in dustry. but there seems to be no doubt ' that sufficient meat for home con t .!_? + T sumtion could be locally produced. The rigors of the winter climate dc not constitute sc serious an obstacle to stock raising as might be suppos ed. in the warm barns such as have been constructed of spruce logs, wel chinked with moss, stock seem to gel along comfortably. It is true chat stock must be main talned by feeding 7 or 8 months ir tho year; that is. whero not provided with winter grass grazing such a> wild peas of tho region have afforded In many instances, but this Is the on ly way to make uso of a great <iuan tlty of valuable forage the country Ii capable of producing, and tho crops o native grasses than annually go t< absolute waste. This forage can nol be exported profitably and to be usee at all must be utilized in the produc tlon of beef, products, and pork. It must be understood that this li not a stock-raising region in the sens* that cattlb can be turned upon vnsi ranges, to care for themselves untl ready for the roundup and market Good grazing is available nearly ev erywhere during the months of June July, and August, and ordlnnrilj through a part of May and Septem ber. while browse consisting of frost bitten vegetation will be available ir many years through October and per haps a part of November, but stock men must be prepared to feed a least 7 months of the year, and the; must have efficient means for bous ing all stock against the severe cold As already pointed out, the countr; Is fully capable of meeting this de mand for feed; it only remains then for those entering the business to em ploy the ordinary means of laying in necessary supplies of foed and provid ing shelter. Notwithstanding the fact that th< region Is capable of producing muct more beef than the present popula tlon requires?more than a vastly lar ger population would require? no enough is produced to supply mon than a small fraction of tho presen demand. The meat product of th< section at the present time Is mostl; pork and veal raised scatteringly b; a few roadhouse keepers, farmers oi dairymen. Whilo considerable mill and butter arc produced, the outpu is but a comparatively unlmportnn part of that used by the present pop ulation. Tne largest dairy farm visuea d; Mr. Bennett was that of C. F. Thick ley of Fairbanks. In September then were on this farm 25 cows. 2 hull" and several calves. Nineteen of th< cows were giving milk. There wen Durham. Jersey, Holstein and gradei of these breeds. Milk was being sol< at $1 per gallon, cream at $1 per pint | and butter at 75 cents per pound Three of the best milch cows at this dairy were raised on the farm. Mos of the calves were sold for veal. The Yukon-Tanana region, is thui demonstrably one of considerabli stock raising and dairying possibill ties. There is opportunity for ai immediate extension of these Indus tries to meet the demands of thi present population for beef and dairy products, and probably for pork. Th( profitableness of shipping stock o meat to outside markets is somewha probtemetlcal, at least under presen conditions of transportation. It mnj be possible, however, to carry the Industry to such a stage of develop ment that such shipments can b( made profitably when cheaper trans portation is available. Exportation o the more concentrated products, but ter and cheese. Is even more promts ing of success. Chickens and ducks do well. A con siderable number of flocks of th< Rhode Island Reds and Plymouth Rocl breeds are kept. Indian Runner duck! were seen. Ranch eggs were solliw at this time of rcconnalsonce at $1.5( per dozen and cold storage eggs Im ported at 75 cents per dozen."
