figured on the basis of 31 days,
there were 44 cows which passed the
40-pound mark for the month of
February. Star, the grade Jersey
cow owned by E. Munn. again heads
the list with 63.7 pounds of butterfat
to her credit.
A large number of the poorest cows
have been disposed of recently by
members of the Association. Approx
imately 40 cows have been sold dur
ing the past month.
Three different members of the As
sociation have lately purchased pure
bred bulls. Albert Rutledge at Little

the Brewer herd at Satsop. A. H.

Comments by County Agent.
The average production for the
50-pound group is 54.22 pounds of
butterfat, while that of the 40-
pound group is 44.6 pounds. Figured
on the average price of butterfat for
the month. 39 cents, we have a dif
ference( In of product in favor
of the first group of $3.75. The
average cost of feed for group 1 is
$11.23 and for group 2, $9.74. a dif
ference of $1.49. The average cow
of group 1, then, produced as much
at the same cost as the cow of group
2 and in addition to that she sold
that part of her product, valued at
$3.75, which she produced over and
above the co»|of group 2 for the cost
of $1.49. or 37 cents on the dollar.
A bargain.
Below is a table ot' averages for
two groups, one of cows producing
45 pounds of butterfat and over and
the other of cows producing less than
40 pounds of butterfat respectively:
Lbs. Lbs. Value of Cost
Milk. Bt.Ft. Product. Feed. Profl^
1109 49.5 $19.57 $8.98 $10.59
830 32.3 12.75 8.98 3.77
These averages were taken from
tho records of fiv? cows and repre
sent five herds, in that one cow of
each group was picked from the same
herd, care being taken to select cows
equally advanced in lactation and
age anil of approximately equal

makes within 7-' cents as much
profit as three of the average cows of
group 2. The feed cost being the
same for both groups, this means
that on five farms the low producer
is fed out of all proportion to her
production. Judging by the standard
of group 1, group 2 should make a
profit of $6.90 with a feed cost of
$5.85 to be on an equal paying basis
with group 1.
To put it another way, it means
that the low producer requires a
great deal more, in this instance 53
per cent, to do business on than a
cow producing one-third to one-half
more. Putting good blood into low
producers, in other words, selection
and good, careful breeding, will sure
ly remedy this condition. The use of
pure-bred bulls of high quality is a
rational method of overcoming low
Heavy Pnwenger Traffic Requires
Expensive Track Improvement.
One of the most gratifying evi
dences of returning prosperity is the
very heavy traffic over the lines of
the Oregon-Washington Railroad &
Navigation company, which, accord
ing to William McMurray, the gen
eral passenger agent, is making it
necessary to re-lay its rails over the
Blue mountains with hundred-pound
At present ninety-pound steel is
used, but the heavy volume of frafflc
finds these rails Insufficient for the
strain. The new 100-pound rails
will be the heaviest used by any rail
road in the West, and the total cost
will approach close to a half million
The first unit of th& work will
comprise about 30 miles and other
units will be undertaken as circum
stances warrant.
Cold Sores and

are only outward manifestations of the
inflammation of the mucous surface
that lines the lungs, the stomach and
all the digestive tract, but they give

rightfully called acute catarrh.
If you suffer from such conditions don't let them become
chronic, don't run the risk of systemic catarrh.

A way Tuead»r.
Mrs. Elizabeth Ann Ticknor, 76
years old, a resident of the Tenino
vicinity for the past 62 years, died
Tuesday. The funeral took place
Thursday morning from the Metho
dist church in Tenino, Rev. E. E.
Hopkins of Tumwater, officiating,
and interment was made in the Te
nino cemetery.
Mrs. Ticknor crossed the plains
with her parents when only four
years of age and settled along the
Columbia river, near Vancouver.
Later she moved to Ford's Prairie,
just west of Centralia. Her father,
Sidney Ford, erected the old block
house on the prairie and was gov
ernment agent in charge of the Che
halis tribe of Indians.
Mrs. Ticknor married J. T. Tick
nor when she was only 15 years old
and moved to a donation cleam near
Tenino, now known as Ticknor Prai
rie, where she lived until her death.
Her sister, Mrs. Angeline Shelton.
now a resident of Lewiston, Idaho,
was the first white girl born in
Washington territory.
Mrs. Ticknor is survived by seven
children, 36 grandchildren and 26
great grandchildren. The children
are R. B. Ticknor, Curtis, Wash.;
Mrs. Nancy Ritter, Bucoda; Mrs.
Nellie Davis, Tenino; Joe Ticknor,
Yakima; Mrs. Hester Whalen, who
lives near Tenino; Mrs. Edith Pin
ger. Little Rock, and Mrs. Blanch
Sandmire, of Eatonville.
Like Dennett's Flour.
Nearly all health lecturers advocate
eating more coarse food and graham
bread. Most of the groceries 1b
Olympia are selling Dennett's whole
wheat flour and graham flour and
report a big sale for it. Blue Stem
wheat only is used by the Dennett
Milling company in the manufacture
of its flour and this is said to be the
explanation of the great demand
for it.
