VALUABLE TRIPS ON
MARKETING APPLES
The New York I'm it frade Journal
and Produce Kecurd publishes a pa
per read by 11. M. Kingbbury, of tbe
MiMourl Horticultural aociuty tba
may prove ut iuterctt to growers liere
as it giva some vuhmlile information
ahout uia-UetiuK upiieg. r'rom Mr.
KiDKabuiy'a pupor it can be seen that
tbe Hen Davis is ttiil a very import
ant factor in tbe apple (limineM in
tbat state. Iho pupnr ia as (illos:
Some time nine 1 received a letter
from our worthy monetary, Mi. L. A.
Uoodman, askiug me to write a pa
per for t bis rxnelirig ou "Murketiug
Apples" or tome kindred subject to
be selected by me. At tbe time of re
ceiving bis letter 1 was feeling pretty
good, as 1 was junt winding up a very
strenuous apple season, aod as apple,
at tbat time were moving quite freely
and prices getting better, I thought 1
oould see a successful close to a veiy
unusul seasou. lieing in this frame
of mind, 1 wrote to Mr. Uoodman
that 1 would try to prepare a paper,
and selected the eulijeot gi.eu above.
If the subject is to be considered
from tbe standpoint of tbe grower, at
well as tbe dealer-and 1 think it
should be it will be uecenary to be
gin with early spring. First ot all,
when the proper time. comes, spray
your fruit. Cultivate your orobaid
thoroughly and keep down vegetation.
The most essential thing is to raise
fruit of such quality thut it U deserv
ing of a good market.
As soon as y ur fruit crop is well
set and apparently safe, you should
take up the subject ot packages to be
used. Uet the beet packages money
will buy. It matters uot which you
use barrels or boxes, or both. Tbey
should be ot first chis material, and
mak) an attractive package when pre
sented to tbe consumer for their ap
proval. Did you ever go to a fruit stand to
buy a basket of peaohes and notice
that one basket was made of tbe best
material and bad a neat, tidy appear
ance, showing cure in the packing,
while another seemed to have a loose,
eloucby look, as though it were only
put together to reach trie marker. The
fruit in the well made basket may not
be quite as tine as the fruit in tbe
other, but you will take it every time,
ami if the qualtity of the fruit in both
buhkets is tbe same, the sloucby look
ing package will have to take a back
seat and will not move until all tbe
others have gone.
So it is with apples. Make your
package attractive. A message to the
buyer tbat you bnve used care in
packing and handling its conteuts.
Ihe extra oust of a first class package
is like bread cast upon the waters. It
will tetuin to you utter many days,
possibly an order for five or ten cars
of fruit under your brand.
After your packages are arranged
for aud well under way, so tbey will
be ready when needed, you should se
lect your fruit. It you are a grower
exclusively arid hare giveu our or
chard the "square doal", this is a
simple mutter, liut with the buyer it
is not so easy. Orchard alter orchard
must be vifiled. Memoranda should
be made as to the fruit aud the ap
proximate number of barrels of each
variety in each orchard. Some or
chards will bare to be passed up en
tirely, while in others, only ceitain
varieties can be packed.
When you have gotten a line on the
fruit in tbe section iu which you are
operating, open up correspondence
witb the buyers in sections of tbe
oountry iu which you expect to find
a market.
Let them know just what you ex
pect to have to olfer, aud when you
will be ready for business. Let them
understand tbat you expect to han
dle nothing but first class stock, put
up in i.Hrst. class shape. Make your
letters short and to the poiut. Carry
conviction to tbe buyer and make him
feel that l.ejjneedn some of your apples
for bis trade. When you get a buyer
to this point, you are in position to
do business with him, aud when you
And a customer, above all things
"make good." Seo that your fruit is
properly aud honestly packed, and
that your brand goes on every barrel
in a neat arid JattiactWe way. Guar
antee every barrel of fruit, and make
it come up to the guarantee.
When the buyer gets your first car
load aud liude it all you represented
it tojbebe will immedialelywire you
for price on another car or possibly
five. Don't lose your head when this
bapnens, but price him what he wauts
and at the market. Don't think be
cause be iu is position to use more of
your tipples thut you can spring tbe
market ou hiui. like him a chuuoe
to make a profit. Ciaiu his conlldenoe
and compel bim to huve confidence iu

1 bad one car of Jonathan applos
this season which 1 believe sold for
me to one Urnr 25 cars of apples, be
sides turning dowu older from them
1 could not till. The cur of Jonathans
was fancy. The apples were sold at a
fair price and th buyer doubtless
made a nice profit on tb ni. As soon
as tbey rece ved and examined thero
they wanted prices on several more
cars. As this was the last car I bad
to offer, 1 switched them ou to Ben
Davis. I sold them ten cars tbe first
clip, and then five more. ' They then
wanted ten mure, but could not see
my way clear to bool. them just then.
Later 1 sold them tcverul more cars
They paid every diaft pron.ptly. Did
not have a kick ou a cur sold to
them. These pecple were strangers
to me. I bad never sold them a dol
lar's worth until the ca -of Jonathans.
I looked up thoir rating and fouud
tbey were thoroughly reliable. I gave
tbim to nuderstaua mas 1 guaranieea
everything sold them, and if by acci
dent or carelessness of my packers I
shipped them anything that was not
right, I proposed to make it right.
When vou not a good customer: stay
with him. Some time you may ship
him some apnles you did not intenJ
to ship him, or possibly some of tl.e
apples, or the whole car for tbat mat
ter, are not us goi.d as you thought
they were, it be so aavisea you,
tnk his word for it. Allow any rea
sonable claim be may make It he is
tbe right kind of a customer bis claim
will not be uuiust.
Uae the telegraph freely. In this
dny and age all perishable fruit is
