OREGON CITY COURIER-HERALD. FRIDAY, MARCH 8, 1901.
The liile of eniigra'ion from tt e East . I
line started with a rueli for Oregon and
Washington, and Clackamafc county
should make a practical, determined ef
fort to secure a portion of these desira
ble additions to our farming population.
ClacknuiHS county has not received her
jiiHt, share of new population (luring the
years that are pant. Eastern people ar
rive in Portland, and the majority of
them u'i to tin- np-vallcy counties, and a
lew to Southern Oregon. Occasionally
one finds his way into the rich 'anoint;
sections of ClackRmHS county, back from
the railroad lines Of course, quite ft
lumber of new settlers have located in .
UlBCknm(ts comity during the past year,
hut they cauic principally at tiie eolici
'.ation of porsonal friends. It is a fact, j
rowever, that the bulk of the immigra
tion, thote who nr strangers in a strange ,
and, do not find their way into Clacka- i
.nas county. The hoard of trade should 1
make a determined eff. rt to secure a I
hare of this imniigration, as tliey are
beginning to come in by the train load.
The Oregon City edition of the Eve
ning Telegram formerly had a reporter
. named Simpson. He was a good sort of
i young fellow, but he permitted sev-
ral citizens to stuff him with all kinds
if nonsense and uiireasonnble yarns.
First one individual would use this
dition as a personal organ, and then an
ither. One prominent citizen palmed
ff an obscene anagram, which was
Minted. Things continued in this way
mtil it became so oad that Simpson was
'ired ( ff the job, and is now on a farm,
near llwaco. These persons thought
hat they were playing the Telegram for
i sucker by getting lots of tree advertis
ing, 'nit it, turned out that they were the
nickers themselves for the Oregon Citv
Midi was not printed in the Portland
dition. Recently history seems to be
repeating it.elf, as the unreasonable
-tories printed in the 0. Cedition bear
evidence. For instance, imagine a child
ailing ud feet Qver perpendicular bluff
and lighting on the railroad track un- i
'urt CO; or the story of Colonel "Bob"
Vlillor delivering a speech at the meet
ing of Aberiethy Chautauqua Circle held
t Judge Galloway's residence last week,
vhen in fact, the writer has a complete
nigrum of theaffaii, and his name doeB
urt Biienr on the list. Mention is also
tiiide that the Colonel is ono of the
irectors. Whoever heard of a Chau
tauqua Circle lmving directors.
The democrats, who voted for Mitchell
re buncoed, hy the veto of the Portland
barter bill. This new charter was a
art of the plun by which the Mituhel
rte0 made a combination with the
li'tnocrats and populist of Multnomah
"unity to elect a legislative ticket. It
a fact, however, that all the demb
'alicand populints votes Mitchell re
vived were in Multnomah county, ex
pt three Hedges '( this county, and
vo populists from Linn county. Ed-,
ard Killfeather, a prominent democrat
f Portland, and well known in Oregon
itv.said: "I think the democracy got

It is claimed that a certain council
an announces his intention of raising
he license for theater plays to $25 per
ight, which would force the opera
ouee people out of business. It would
rive business away from the city, and
eople would be compelled to go to Port
Mid for theater amusements. What
ui be the object of discriminating
gainst home enterprise is a puzzler.

WHAT THE GEORGIA EXPERIMENT
STATION HAS LEANED.
Farther Evidence Agnlnat the Util
ity of Scrubs rolnts Indicating;
the Most Desirable Qualities Gen
eral Purpose Cows. "
The Georgia experiment station has
Jssued an Interesting bulletin on prac
tical dairying. Any one of the three or
four prominent dairy breeds, says the
bulletin, -will give better satisfaction,
better results and larger profits than
the nondescript known as the scrub
cow. Individual preferences of expe
rienced dairymen are as varied as are
the breeds themselves, but all will per
haps agree that the best four breeds
for strictly dairy purposes are Jerseys,
Guernseys, Etolsteins and Ayrshlres. It
Is perhaps sufficient to say that the Jer
sey and Guernsey are remarkable for
the richness of their milk and the ease
with which it Is converted Into the best
quality of butter. They are not in
clined to lay on fat and muscle and
therefore are not adapted for beef. The
Holstein is d. very large animal nnd Is
remarkable for her large yield of milk
or rather low percentage of butter
fat, and not so churnable as the milk
of the two former. When no longer
profitable for the dairy on account of
ago or Individual defects, she fattens
kindly and makes a largo return in
good beef. The Ayrshire is also noted
for her largo yield of milk of good
quality, but not rich In butter fat. She
Is not desirable as a beef animal. It is
fair to say tHat the Jersey and Guern
sey are especially fitted for butter pre
duction, while the Holstein and Ayr
shire are better suited for a 'milk dairy
or for producing milk for consumption
Thero are pome dairy farmers who
prefer what Is called a "general pur
pose cow," or an animal that will yield
a fair quantity and quality of milk and
will fatten well at the close of a milk
ing period, or when no longer desired
for dairy purposes. Certain strains of
Shorthorns, It Is claimed, will fill these
In commencing the business of dairy
ing it Is well for the farmer to decide
promptly the particular line of work he
will follow. It is by no means neces
sary to start with a herd of none but
pure bred animals, but It Is highly Im
portant to have at the head of this herd
a pure bred bull and two or three pure
bred cows. For strictly dairy purpose
a grade cow may bo Just as profitable
as a pure bred, and will generally cost
much less. Itut a few suggestions In
regard to the several points which in
dicate deslrnblo qualities or the re
verso will not bo out of placo.
The head sliould be rather small, but
proportionately long, with n narrow
muzzle. The eyes sliould he small, but
With a bright nnd Intelligent look. The
horns should be small, nnd set rather
wide apart ot tho bases. The neck
should be long, slender nnd with a
graceful taper toward the head and
with uo loose Klilu below. The shoul
ders should be thin, and the foreounr
ters light; the hindquarters should be
large nnd open or "loose Jointed," the
back straight, and broad across the ptd
vls. The body should bo deep, tall,
long mul slender, and the legs small,
rather short, with smooth, firm Joints.
The udder sliould be broad, square and
capacious and stretching forward, but
not fleshy, low bung nor loose. The
"milk veins" should be large and
prominent, nnd the teats huge and set
well apart from each other. The skin
should tie loose mid thiij. and the hair
soft nnd tine.
An individual cow of any breed may
be deficient in one or more of the above
points and yet prove to be .ail excellent
milker, but If one conforms In all the
points she can hardly fail to be n supe
rior tinlmal, and such close conformity
Is proof of careful previous breeding
nnd ii guarantee that her offspring
will tie like herself If the cow be prop
erly mated. It may be also added that
a so called "scrub" cow 'may tie nil that
could be desired ns a dairy nnltnal,
even equal to a thoroughbred, but there
will be uo certainty that her offspring
"will partake of the same character.
Vrcpotency, or the power to transmit
certain qualities to the offspring. Is one
of the results of a long course of care
ful breeding, and this power resides
chiefly In the male parent; hence all
efforts to Improve the common stock of
the country should be guided by the
rule that the bull should be a thorough
bred, registered animal and the cow
should be the beat ot its kind.
i : ;
A Simple Explanation of an ' Inter
The educated housekeeper knows very
well that good bread cannot be made
without the use of yeast to cause the
sponge to get light to rise, as we say,
says a writer In The Practical Farmer.
This she does by adding yeast to the
sponge,-and the effect of this yeast Is
due to the existence, in it of a vast
number of minute organisms which In
oculate the sponge, and these, growing
In the sponge, produce a gas in it, by
which the sponge is filled with a vast
number of little cavities or cells, in
which the yeast has produced the gas
by which the sponge Is swollen and, as
she says, Is raised. Then the bread
goes Into the oven, and the heat kills
these germs of yeast and stops the pro
duction of more gas, and the bread,
when baked, Is filled with open cells,
by which It Is made light and spongy.
Now we can by a Bimllar Inoculation
of the cream ripen It for the churn by
means of the growth In it of a count
less number of minute germs, which,
as It were, fill the cream with exceed
ingly small spaces, so that when it
is stirred it has a shiny 'appearance,
as we say, like satin; and when in this
condition the churning' Is done, the
small particles of butter separate and
by cohesion gather together and form
little pellets of butter, and these, ad
hering together by the dashing togeth
er of them In the churning, Increase
In size until lumps of butter form. But
It is most convenient to stop the churn
ing when these pellets are of the size
of buckshot or sweet peas, and this for
the reason that when the butter is in
this form the buttermilk Is more easily
washed from it and the butter may be
gathered In a pure state. This we call
the philosophy of butter making. It Is
the wisdom, In fact for this Is the
meaning of the word philosophy of ,
churning. It saves labor and it leaves
the butter in the best condition for
gathering and washing it free from the
buttermilk, which otherwise would
quickly cause decomposition of it, aud
this would produce the strong, dis
agreeable odor and' flavor of rancidity
in it. All this Is included in this term
ripening or perfecting the cream for
the' churning. And this condition is
most easily produced In this way: We
take the cream when It is still sweet
and mix in ,it by stlrrlug gently for
each gallon of 'It a teaspoonful of the
buttermilk of the previous churning,
Just as the baker mixes some of the
last made dough in the bread sponge
as a starter ns we may say of fer
mentation in the cream by which the
needed ripeness or fitness is produced.
And Just as the baker sets the sponge
In a warm place to rise, so the cream
Is set In a warm place to ripen for a
space of 12 hours. The right time Is
easily known by the shining, satiny
appearance of the cream when It is
stirred In the Jar. Of course all this Is
to be done with the same care with
which the good housekeeper manages
her bread sponge, and when on stirring
the cream it is seen to be thick and
shines and glistens In the light and has
a pleasant, mild sourness, then the
cream Is ready to be churned. Then It
may be churned In the shortest time,
Just as the ripened bread sponge is,
and as this is, too, so the butter is pro
duced In the same time always, every
day in the year. In fact, both these
operations are subject to the same
rules, and If the same care Is taken
with the cream as Is taken with the
bread, there will always, be the same
certainty In the making of butter.
There is no witchery about this; It la
a plain, simple effect of certain causes.
You cannot produce first class winter
butter unless you churn often, says
George E. Newell In The American Cul
tivator. To churn every other day Is better
than once in three days, while to put it
off till every fourth day Is execrable
practice, and yet a vast amount of but
ter manufactured on the latter plan Is
marketed every winter, much to the
disgrace of the dairy trade.
It is found primarily in country
stores, where it has been exchanged by
small dairymen at a second rate price
The tradesmen ship It In lots to the
city market, where nil the way through,
whether It ends In the larder of a ba
ker or on the table of the poor work
Ingtnan, It Is classed ns Inferior and
sells for a low price.
And yet the original material from
which this butter was made was as
good as that which Is employed In turn
ing out the 23 and 30 cent article.
The inferiority of quality nnd conse
quent loss to dairymen follows because
they Ignore the right principles of but
Suppose that a fanner, after raising
a fine crop of potatoes nnd digging
them, should nllow the tubers to lie a
day or two In the gun before storing
Ihem In the root cellar? Could he ex
pect to sell the green, bitter vegetables
for full market quotations? Most cer
tainly not, and even the most obtuse
are thoroughly well aware of this fact.
And yet those who use common sense
lu this respect with Inconceivable folly
will spoil good cream nnd butter by
wantou neglect, as outlined above.
This could all be obviated by churn
ing cream when It is fresh nnd pure
I. e slightly matured, but not bitter
and manufacturing It Into butter ac
cording to imJdern principles.
Crealu sliould nil be secured from the
milk In at least 4 hours, aud then the
cream should be matured and churned
within the next 24.
This can be done usually by keeping
It at a temperature of between CO and
It la where cream Is kept at near 40
degrees and for several days that It de
velops that bitter flavor ruinous to
' butter quality.
