HOW MANY INDIANS IN IDAHO
Two Government Reports Fall to Tal
ly Indians in This State.
Washington -— How many Indians
are there in Idaho? Nobody seems to
know The census bureau has just
completel and published its report on
the Indian census taken in 1910, and
asserts that the total Indian popula
tion of the state in that year was 3488.
The Indian bureau statistics for 1910
show 3988 Indians in Idaho,
would naturally be presumed that the
census bureau would find more In
dians than the Indian bureau, inas
much as it undertakes to enumerate
all residents, whereas the Indian bu
reau deals only with Indians under its
own jurisdictions, but as a matter of
fewer Indians, taking the country as
a whole, than did the Indian bureau.
Can it be that the Indian bureau Is
padding its rolls to get more money
out of congress?
Census Bureau Figures.

found in Idaho by the census bureau,
2864 were full bloods, the remainder

Of the illiterates, 484 were
unable to speak English.
A goodly proportion of the Indians
of Idaho more than 10 years old are
reported as engaged in gainful occu
pations, there being 752 males and 52
females, or 55 per cent of the males
over 10 years and 4 per cent of the

old idea that the squaws are support
ing the bucks—in Idaho.
Of the Indians in Idaho, 1334, or
38 per cent are now taxed; in 1910,
1929, or 45 per cent were taxed.
Many Tribes Represented.

RIGHT FEEDING FOR CALVES
Flaxseed Jelly is Excellent Substitut«
for Fat or Cream—Give Some
Bran and Whole Oata.
There Is no need of feeding the or
dinary calf for a longer period than
one week on whole milk. Of course
the change to sweet skim milk should
not be made suddenly, nor without
substitutes for the fat or cream. To
replace the fat that has been removed
from the milk, as well as to furnish
additional protein, there Is nothing
that can take the place of flaxseed
jelly. This jelly should be added In
small quantities at first and slowly in
creased. Begin with a dessertspoonful
in each feed and gradually increase
until about a cupful is being fed night
and morning to the three-months-old
calf. To prepare this jelly steep one
pound of whole flaxseed in water al
most boiling, until a thick paste re
sults. It should be kept cool and sweet
until fed. In addition to the flaxseed
jelly a little dry bran and whole oats
should be fed. Some clean, sweet hay
will be found a valuable addition to
Jhe ration at a very early ace.

you are ready to put them in the j

roots a little while in cold water, then
examine carefully, and cut off every
damaged root. All dead wood or im

before the first outbranching rootlet,
Cut from under side in a slanting di

will come in contact with the ground.
In trimming the trees, do not leave
any branch more than eight inches
long. The practice of cutting back to
within two or three feet, particularly
on very young trees, is growing and
usually gives very satisfactory results.
In western Washington where fruit
growing now has become a great in
dustry, yearling trees are planted more
than any other. They are cut down to
about one-third of their growth, and
are every year trimmed to grow low
Bpreading branches. Most of the ap
ples in that country are picked by men
standing on the ground—ladders sel
dom being necessary.
Professor Bailey says that vigorous
pruning does not injure the growth
of the tree. Of course this does not
mean indiscriminate slashing of roots
or top, but pruning made with
care and good judgment. If the weak
rootB and branches are cut off, more
strength goes to the sound ones, and
better results are obtained.
Probably the best results come from
pruning the orchard rather vigorously
•very two or three years, but if one is
not an expert at pruning, and cannot
obtain the right sort of help, better
let the trees alone until they can be
properly pruned, even if this can be
done only once every three or four

STOCK IS FAVORED
Pork From Small and Undevel
oped Animals Is Too Fat to
Meet Market Demands.
(By R. G. WF.ATIIERSTONE.)
Early maturity for the pork' barrel
is one thing and early maturity for
breeding purposes is quite another,
yet the two are closely related and it
is desirable that we consider them
together. The tendency must come
from the small or dwarf varieties.
But we may produce pigs with an
inherited tendency to make a rapid
growth from birth to the time they
are fit for market and at the same
time attain the size and vigor of our
matured breeding stock.
Another difficulty 1 have observed
in producing pork from the small and
undeveloped breeding animals is that
the pork is too fat to meet the market
demands, which call for a carcass that
will furnish pork that is well-marbled
with fat and lean meat, and this kind
of meat comes from pigs that are
from matured parents and that have
the inherited tendency to make growth
rather than to take on too much fat
at the period when they are being fin
ished for market.
The pigs from a well-developed 500,
pound sow will v make more pork In
less time than those from a young, im
mature sow. If this is not the case,
why are all of the phenomenal weights
made by the leading show' animals in
the under-a-year class maîé by pigs
that come from matured sires and

NOTES FOR SWINE BREEDERS
Success With Pigs Cannot Be At
tributed to Luck—Model Farm
Should Have Natural Shade.
Progression is the order of the day,
and in no direction is there more prog
ress made than in the breeding and
feeding of swine.
The time is past when we can con
sider a man's success in swine grow
ing based upon luck.
Good drainage is essential on the
hog farm, and no amount of tile or ar
tificial draining will take the place
of good natural drainage.
While hills and valleys make an
Ideal place for a hog farm, the herd
should be kept as near to the source
of the water as possible because of
the danger of the stock becoming af
flicted with cholera and other diseases
caused by the stream being contami
nated by swine further up stream.
A model breeding farm should be
provided with a timber lot or large
There is no shade like nat
nral shade, and trees soften the cold
winds during the winter. Their value
cannot be overestimated when proper
ly utilized by the swine grower.
The breeder who would be success
ful in this age of close competition
must have the closest and keenest dis
crimination of what is necessary to
constitute an animal of individual
merit, or more properly he must have
firmly fixed in his mind the exact con
tour of a perfect pig. Then he must
have an idea of the kind of breeding
stock required to produce such a pig.
There are numerous breeds of swine,
varying not only in size, color, shape,
feeding qualities and general char
acteristics, but also in the quality of
It is not the great big fat pig that
brings home the money, but the pig
that will weigh from 200 to 300 pounds
at from six to ten months of age that
captures the top prices.
The breeding animals of the herd
should receive the very best care and
attention at all times, but with all of
our knowledge of breeding and feed
ing, the science of swine growing is
yet in its infancy.
KEEPING SWINE IN WINTER
Profit Can Be Made in Feeding Home
Grown Feeds, Such as Clover,
Alfalfa and Ensilage.
It is a common question to be asked
If It will pay to winter swine. I can
«ee but one way to winter swine at a
reasonable cost, and It is to winter
them on as cheap feed as is possible,
and make home-grown feeds, clover,
alfalfa and ensilage, form a prominent
part of the ration.
If we can winter an animal in this
way and feed out only a small amount
of grain I think we can make it profit
able to keep a number of pigs through
the winter and make fairly good
gains, but it is a common occurrence

Winter Comfort for Little Ones.
to go on*a farm in the spring and see
100 hogs which will weigh the same
in May as they did in December, and
all of the corn cribs empty.
Something is wrong when wo see
that kind of hogs, but no one will dis
pute the fact that the average feeder
eithtr feeds out more feed than can be
fed with a profit or else has a bunch
of scrub pigs in the spring.
There is one advantage in wintering
pigs, we have them in time to feed out
and reap the benefits cf a good sum

ceive considerable more money than
we would if we were compelled to mar
ket them while the market was over
stocked in November or December.—

Packing House Demands.
The demand at the packing houses is
for leaner pork and smaller weight
hogs. The feeders must cater to these
requirements by feeding less corn and
more protein feeds and shortening the

Feed fall pigs during winter a mod
