DAIRYING AT YAKIMA.
There is money in the dairy business
in the Yakima valley and the farmer
owning a good dairy is sure of a good
income each month in the year. At
present there are 3,000 head of good
dairy stock distributed among the farm
ers in the various districts and the
amount of money paid out to the own
ers at the present price of butter
amounts to $1,250 a day, or $456,250
in a year. These figures represent the
winter business alone. During the
summer months the production is
about 7,500 pounds per day, thus ma
terially increasing the yearly value.
There are five creameries located in
the valley, to-wit: Rockwood and
Meadow Brook, of North Yakima; Mil
ler Bros., of the Upper Naches; Moun
tain View, at Sunnyside, and one
onwed by Mrs. Carmichael at Yakima
City, besides two skimming stations
that ship cream to the Sound cities.
The product of these creameries is
3,500 pounds of butter a day. The
ranchers make an average of 1,500
pounds of butter a day, giving a total
at the opening of winter months of
5,000 pounds. The price paid to farm
ers for cream is 28 *£ cents per pound
of butter, but the average paid during
a year is 25 cents.
Thus it will be easily seen what a
farmer with a herd of ten or twenty
head of stock can do by attending to
business. The minimum profits from
a cow, after all feeding and care ex
penses are deducted, is $32.50 per head
a year. The maximum profit for stock
in this valley is $60 per head a year,
the returns depending mostly on the
breed of stock and the manner of
handling them. The cost of keeping
a cow is figured at about $42.50 a
year. The dairyman who raises his
own feed will get the benefit of this
cost of keeping a cow and have a
large profit on his crops, being well
paid for his labor of caring for the
cow. These figures do not include
the value of the milk for feeding pigs
nor the increase in calves.
The Rockwood creamery people, O.
augurate a butter factory, and I was
A, Fetcher and L. O. Janeck of this
city, have been greatly instrumental
in developing the dairy business in
this valley. In 1901 they brought 500
head of dairy stock from Wisconsin
and sold them to the farmers on time,
taking the monthly payments out of
the sums received for cream sold to
the creameries. N. M. Snodgrass of
the Naches introduced 300 head in
this manner the same year, but owing
to the rise in price of such cattle in
Wisconsin, Oregon has been drawn
upon this year for a supply of dairy
cows. The business is still increasing
at a wonderful rate, having doubled
its capacity in the last two years.—
AFTER A SWINDLER.
Yakima Democrat: C. W. Bryant, a
Selah farmer, who among others was
victimized last winter by G-. W. Allin
ger, the notorious one-armed commis
sion house swindler, left for Seattle
Tuesday to take the initial steps in
the United States court toward bring-
ing that smooth-tongued rascal back
from the "Golden State" to stand trial.
Allinger, while here, worked the job
office department of the Democrat for
a large quantity of stationery, for
which, of course, he never paid, as it
was against his principles to pay any
thing that could be avoided. The use
of this particular stationery, however,
is likely to prove the undoing of Al
linger. The form of letterhead used
by Allinger was calculated to convince
his trustful customers that the commis
sion firm of Reidel & Allinger, with
its branch establishments at North
Yakima and other leading cities of the
country, was one of the biggest and
best things that "ever came down the
pike." At any rate, Allinger succeed
ed in getting produce from Yakima
farmers to the amount of about $4,
--000, and then skipped out. In let
ters written his victims since return
ing to his home at Alameda, Cal.,
Allinger has acknowledged the justice
of the claims held here against him,
but has tried to excuse himself on
the plea that his partner in San Fran
cisco "did him up."
Mr. Bryant went to Seattle armed
with an affidavit from the publisher
of this paper to the effect that the sta
tionery used by Allinger to gull the
public was printed in this office. In
asmuch as the fellow used the United
States mails to carry out his swindling
operations, the purpose is to prose
cute him through the United States
courts. The federal grand jury, now
in session at Seattle, will be asked to
bring in an indictment against Allin
ger on that ground.
"Ye know that double-tailed pointer
dog I exhibited at the last fair?" asked
Uncle Bill Abbo. "Wai, that's been
kinder weighin' on my conscience ever
since, an' now I'm goin' t' tell the
truth about it.
"The whole thing was an out-'n-out
fake. That pointer warn't a two-tailed
dog at all."
A general sigh of relief greeted this
"What it really was," continued
Uncle Bill, "was a one-tailed dog with
his tail split in two halves. I bred
him myself an' I know.
"His father and his mother were
the two finest durn critters that ever
pointed a bird, so it was only natural
that he should have been a hunter
right from the start.
"The thing happened the very first
time I took him gunning. The min
ute he laid his eyes on a bird his tail
stiffened out like a poker.
"But he seemed to be in awful ag
ony over something. His tail swelled
up and all trembled like.
"Finally the tip opened up a little
and then, swish! His tail suddenly
split clear down the whole lenth!
"I couldn't understand it until I no
ticed that the durn pup was cross
eyed. Y'see he'd been tryin' t' point
the bird the way it looked to him."
