THE DAIRY BUSINESS.
The following letter from the pen of
one of Uackamae county s successful
farmers appeared in the Farmer and
Stockman lor January:
"From all appearances at the present
time dairying, in all its branches, bids
fair to be profitable for 1898, as there
will surely be a large demand for dairy
products to go North with the mining
excitement. The dairvman who baa
been impr vine his cows, with a view
of making dairying pay, will stand a good
pro8)ect of matin it a success this
year, especially if he has bee-i fore
handed in raising feed for them with a
view to making butter, at to make dairy
ing profitable the dairy farmer must
aire bis own feed, or otherwise) we can
not compete with the Middle states,
where bran and shorts sell for about
half the price obtained in Oregon, and
all other feeds io proportion, whereas
butter brings only about four cents a
pound more than in the East.
The dairy cow should make at least
300 pounds of butter yeai, or she should
milk at least 6000 pounds of milk a year.
A cow to do this must have plenty to eat
at all seasons of the year, aad to get
that we must raiee vegetables and early
corn to help out the grass, as after July,
the farmer who depends on grass for
dairying will find it too dry to be profit
able, except on the river bottom lands,
where they are subject to overflow or
(ubimgHtion. In tie fall and early
winter on bottom lands late-sown oats
and peas mixed make good green feed to
January 1, and on the higher, dryer
lands the thousand headed thale will
produce equally ai much feed at corn,
and can be used through fall and winter
as a cheap and valuable fodder, in
connection with hay. It stand frost well
and is relUhed by all kinds of stock, and
for my part I like it better than ensilage,
although I know my brother dairymen
will not agree with me. Yet no one
will deny tbat ensilage has lost some of
its nutritive value due to fermentation.
To make butter and cheese manu
facturing a success we must make the
best, an 1 fix it so as to tempt the eye as
well as the palate. Today if we had to
sell butter and cheese like we found in
the Portland market of 30 years ago, it
would be an uphill business.
Now the beHt butter is made by cream
eries, and thos run on the co-operative
plan have piiid well in the past year,
with every prospect of being more so in
the coming yea . Where the milk has
been sold to the creameries, as a rule,
the hutter-inakur has made the nioHt
money, as he has purchased the milk
even below the cost of production.
This year, if the dairymen all try to
put the bent of their products on the
market in the best possible condition,
and manufactured bo as to be shipped
in airtight casex, we will make a good
showing on our balance sheet at the end
of 1808. R. Scott

this Hunguriuu gentleman, who had
crossed the Water to make ber a visit.
He held a military potation in his own
country, and the tails of his military
coat, liued with a brilliant red, near
ly prostrated the entire community.
"One Sunday morning he accompanied
the youug lady to church, mid of
course Smalltown was out in full force
to get a good look at him. Certainly his
church deportment differed widely from
anything ever witnesed in this coun
try. He was seated iu the pew with the
young womau when her father came
down the able. As the father entered
the pew the tall Hungarian arose,
placed his bund across bis breast and
bent double in a ceremonious bow, thou
seated himself, the red coattuils being
much in evidence during the salnte.
When the girl's mother entered a few
minutes lafar, tbo same formal recep
tion bow was inude to her. As a rule,
Americans do not rise aud make sweep

such is tbe Hungarian fashion, and

ested and agitated over this unusual dis
