Whenever sufficient business is done to war rant it, all funds should be placed in a bank and payment made by check, except for.very small amounts. A memorandum of each check, to whom given, and for what given, should be kept on the check stub in the same manner as indi cated in the matter of receipts, and each check, when made out, should have clearly written upon it the purpose for which it is given. The check should be drawn to the order of the person in whose favor it is written. This necessitates its indorsement by him before he can receive the money. The bank returns all checks at the end of each month and the paid check is then as good as a receipt for your money as could be ask ed for. The Cash Book.

8 Horticultural Notes By F. Walden There is a discussion going on in some of the fruit journals as to the propriety of planting apple trees in solid blocks. Some growers maintain that if planted in that way they do as.well as they do when mixed. The advantage claimed in mixing varieties is based on the supposition that they will fertilize better by cross pollination. Some growers assert that there is nothing in this mixing of sorts. They cite instances where orchards have borne well when planted in solid blocks of as much as ten acres. No doubt such cases occur but it by no means proves what is claimed for it. To properly understand this matter a few facts must be kept in mind. No apple trees in this 'country are absolutely sterile. All that can rightfully be. claimed is that the bloom of some trees is more fertile than that of some other trees. Some bloom is deficient in pollen. Some on the other hand seems not to be. The Ben Davis is one of the var ieties that is abundant in polle...

with a small-tooth cultivator and shallow hand hoeing frequent enough to kill all grass and weeds before .they come and to keep the crust on the soil broken. This is all-important, as in a dry time it greatly lessens evaporation and minimizes the ef fect of drought.—O. W. Blackwell. Cream Separator in Farm Dairy. Among other things that have assisted in improving the quality of butter produced on the farms is the increased use of cream separators in the home dairies. The deep pan and shallow pan methods of setting the milk each have their advocates, but all who have once used the separator will testify that it is superior to all other methods of taking the cream from the milk. In the first place, no difference how carefully the milk is handled from the cow to churn, more or less impurities get mixed in with it, which will injure the quality of the but ter. The separator will remove every vestige of dirt and impurity of every nature, and turn out the cream without taint of any kind. ...

IO CHILLING FRESH-DRAWN MILK. It has been noticed that when blood is immediately cooled to a tempera ture below 40 degrees Fahrenheit it does not coagulate but remains liquid. A similar action is shown by the fat globules in milk. They remain apart and rise quickly to the surface when the milk is cooled to about 40 degree Fahrenheit immediately after drawing it from the udder. This cooling must be done at once, as a delay of even a few minutes al lows the groupings of the fat globules into clusters which rise much more slowly than do the single globules. The substance which entangles the globules is apparently heavier than the fat and acts as a load on them. This has been illustrated by experi ments which have shown that when cream is obtained by deep setting cans of milk in cold water, there may be a loss to the cream of half a pound of fat in every 100 pounds of milk if the milk is allowed to stand twenty or thirty minutes before placing it in cold water. When cans of milk are set...

4 C. H. LILLY. The Ranch presents on its first page of this issue a very good likeness of Mr. C. 11. Lilly, one of the partners of Lilly, Bogardus & Co., a firm with whom all our readers are familiar. 'There is no more striking example of suc cess achieved through sheer force of effort and applied energy than that of this gentle man. Mr. Lilly came to Seattle in [889 from Champaign, 111., where he had been con ducting a general merchandise husiness. His attention had been directed to this Coast, and the more he heard and read of the pos sibilities of Seattle the more he became convinced that this was destined to be HEADQUARTERS of LILLY, ISOOARDUS & CO.. BEATTLE. the leading city of the North Pacific. So firmly did this opinion become intrenched in his mind that when he came he brought his family and household effects with him. He was unable to find c. suitable opening previous to the great fire of that year, which destroyed the city, but subsequently worked for some months ...

6 Keeping Farm Accounts By PROP. P. R. MacLAREN. Assistant Principal of Acme Business College, Seattle. When a letter is received from the Smith Manufacturing Company in reference to the sale of implements or machinery it may be placed in the proper compartments over the letter "S". Even if it be a circular offering certain goods for sale, a reply to which is not necessary, it ought to be placed in the letter file in the same manner for the purpose of referring to it at any time it may be desired to buy goods of the kind men tioned. The Letter Press Book. It is of advantage to every farmer to keep a copy of the letters which he has written. To do this two methods may be followed. First pro cure a small letter press book which will cost probably 50 or 75 cents and a bottle of ink or copying fluid. As this ink evaporates and thick ens somewhat readily if exposed to the air. it is well to have a large supply of at least a quart of ink in an air tight bottle from which a small quantity ...

the most reliable way to compute interest, is to buy a small book of interest tables, the same as hankers use and save the trouble of making the computations. A sample page of these tables is given as illustration. When one has very little interest to compute and the necessity for such a book is not great a few clear rules for computing interest quickly, may be of service, and I give herewith a number of rules looked upon with favor by those who have much work of this kind to do. In my opinion, however, the shortest and most simple method of computing interest is by the 12 per cent, method. Twelve per cent, per annum is of course 1 per cent, per month and computing the interest on the basis of 30 days to the month, as is usually done, the interest on any sum for 30 days is found by simply pointing off two places of decimals in the principal. For instance, the interest on $250.00 for one month at 12 per cent, is $2.50, and you may find the interest for additional time by simply addin...

8 Horticultural Notes By F. Walden A friend of mine in a neighboring county wrote me recently about selling his apples. There is nothing remarkable about that. P>ut this friend showed by his letter that he knew nothing about the apple market except what he was told by the apple buyers. Ap ple buyers are human and are in the business for what they can make in dollars and cents. A grower is in a deplorable condition who knows nothing about the market except what he can learn from the buyers. The grower should for his own interest study the market. For this reason he should take one or more good fruit journals. The writer of these notes purposes to keep before the read ers of The Ranch the general condition of the apple market. It is well for the grower to keep in touch with the commission men in some of the large cities. They can fur nish him pointers that will do him good. And by commission men I do not. mean those who buy and sell, but those who do a strictly commission business....

IO The Best Beef From Young Stock. As the years go by we can notice a giOW ing demand for younger stock to feed and many people prefer calves for this purpose. As the use of bulls of the improved beef breeds increases it should be easier to fill the demand for prime calves. It is quite certain also that with the increase of good blood the demand for well bred calves will multiply. No feeder who ever prepared a lot of well bred top calves will ever be con tent to feed scrubs or older cattle again. The profitable feeding of cattle is not by any means as general as many be supposed. When a man takes our range cattle and buys the feed required to fatten them there can be no more hazardous speculation. When a man avoids overstocking and intelligently raises his own cattle as well as the alfalfa to fatten them, carefully saving the manure and returning it to the soil, the business is without risk. The secret of profit in feeding calves is this: The same feed that will carry an ordinary tw...
