The reason so many men fail in the
sheep business is because they do not
study it before they begin. Sheep rais

Prizes for Cooking Recipes.
The Crescent Manufacturing Com
pany of Seattle is advertising in The
Ranch the most unique contest ever
inaugurated in the northwest. The
Crescent Manufacturing Company is the
maker of the Crescent brand of food
products. There are Crescent spices,
Crescent flavorings, Crescent coffee.
Crescent Baking Powder and Crescent
brand of Mapleine, a syrup so like
maple syrup that experts have been
Recently the business has been
greatly enlarged. Much money has
been expended in perfecting all depart
ments and systematizing the business
to the end that it may make a good
hard invasion of the eastern field.
Northwest people, as a rule, are loyal
to their home institutions and in the
case of the Crescent brands they well
may be for the reason that not only
is the business increasing in size and
importance each year, thus giving em
ployment to hundreds of people, but its
products are now named as being among
the most perfect ever produced in
America. It is an institution that all
may well be proud of.
As a beginning for its eastern busi
ness, Mr. J. W. Kahle, the head of the
business, has planned the publication
of a million cook books to be given
away free in the eastern states. He
wants this cook book to be perfectly
printed, perfectly distributed, not too
large to send through the mails and
not too expensive to give away free to
the users of Crescent products.
To the end to secure all of this and
to have it well done he has called on
the women of the northwest to help
He offers a number of handsome
prizes, payable in gold, for the winner
of a contest which shall be decided by
five of the greatest cooks on the Pacific
Such men as the cook at The Lincoln,
the cook at the Butler, and the cook
at the Rainier Grand, and other hotels
like that in Seattle and the northwest
will decide it.
The terms of the contest is that each
woman in the northwest shall send in
her best recipe. No matter what it is,
she shall send in her best recipe. , The
sole condition is that this recipe must
contain as one of its ingredients some
You may use Crescent Mapleine and
make an ice cream, or a sherbet, or
you may use Crescent Baking Powder
and make a new roll for breakfast. Any
thing that you have prepared and which
you have eaten, provided that one of
its Ingredients is a Crescent product
you may send in and get credit for it.
Perhaps you will receive one of the
prizes, payable in gold.
It would be well to write to the Cook
Book Editor, The Crescent Manufactur
ing Company, Seattle, Washington, and
get one of the little cook books which
the company will send free. Just write
to them on a postal card and the book
will be sent free. From that you can
get an idea of just what is wanted.
It is a splendid chance for some
bright farmer lassie to win a hand
some prize because most any real good
recipe will be better than what one
gets in hotels around the country.
Home cooking is admitted to be the
best and some farmer lassie or good
wife who knows how to cook things can
win a beautiful prize payable in gold.
