Southern appointments, al
though numerous Southern re

have been here trying to see

gone over with Mr Harris. The
Southern situation looms large
in the new president's interests
and when he is relieved of the
tremendous crush of visitors
and has got the general machin

Hello, My Dear Friend Ben:
Please allow me to again in
trude upon your precious time
and kindness. Observation
teach us that we are once a man
and twice a child; and that
youth looks forward with hope,
while old age looks backward,
over the many scenes and
pleasant associations of youth,
with a craving desire to once
again enjoy those happy days,
when trouble was unknown but
alas, alas with many sad regrets.
While I know time has "Call
ed from Labor" many of my
youthful playmates and associ
ates and others have scattered
to the four winds of both heaven
and earth; yet I ought to have
a host of relatives and friends,
or their decendents, in Dear Old
Pickens, whom I would dearly
love to meet. But as I can not,
itiwould be a great consolation to
hear from them. Especially
old school mates and also from
any old Comrade of Co. "F."

not yet answered the "Last Roll
Call." (And may care a 2 cent
postage stamp for me?.) rJhe
position you occupy, -tirTy en

hb'efiry boys, Bill, Andrew or

that I was born and raised in

the winter, with. my son, in a
town of 3500-composed of peo
ple from every state in the Un

dian, Mexican, Dagoe, Hobo
and Grafters of every political
denomination and color, under
the sun. All of which, renews
my faith and strengthens my
pride in the state of my birth.
If I was acquainted with the
Editor of the "Sentinel-Jour
nal," I would ask him to state,
in his paper, that I have not
forgotton any of my many old
friends of Pickens and that I
am proud of my native state.
Ben, I have no news, good, bad,
nor interesting, more than we
are all well and hoping this may
find you all enjoying alike gra
cious blessing &c. Write me
when you have time and send
me the paper, when you have
not, and oblige.

that he will remain here. This

We want to tk to you a -little now
about -our ammoniated fertilizers. The
I acid and meal season is about over..
Those who use acid and meal haul it
home early in the st-ason so that they
can mix it, The season for ammoni
ated goods commence later, and in
fact. is about started now. There is:
not much difference in acids; one acid
is about as gooi as another. It is all
made of phosphate rock, (bone phos
phate litre,) crushed and treated with
sulphuric acid phosphate and one fertil
company turne out about as good
quality of this goods as another. The
difference in fertilizer is in ammon-;
ated goods. Ammoniated goods are
made by taking this s inie acid phos
phate and mixing it with ammoniateF,
blood tankage, nitrate of soda, cotton
seed meal, sulphate of ammonia, garl'
age. Now; some of these ammoni
ates do their work and exhaust more
quickly than others and so by prop
erly mixing and manipulating our am
moniates, we have gotton a fertilizer
that will nourish the plant from the
time it sprouts, all during the growing
season. during the laying-by season
and up to the time the plant is ma
tured and ready to be gathered. Take
for instance nitrate of soda. It acts
quickly and exhausts. Cotton seed
meal will come in next: it will dis
solve and a&ssimilate with the soil be- I
fore it becomes a plant food, just as
when you plant a grain Qf corn it has
to germinate before it comes up. Tanlk
age come in next and then blood;
which lasts until the crop is matured
and ready to be gathered. So by tak.
ing the different kinds of ammoniates
in the proper proportion, one coming
in as one exhausts, we have a fertili
zer that will feed and nourish the
plant from the time it sprouts until it
is ready to be gathered. That is a
complete fertilizer and unless it does
that it is not a complete fertilizer.
It does not matter where you get it,
it is not a complete fertilizer unless
it feeds and nourishes the plant from
the time it sprouts untll the crop is
ready to be athered. Theca- arna-r
ni every expensive, that is why
ammoniated goods cost more than
acids. Take sulphate of ammonia; it
costs $61 per ton laid down at the
factory. We have bought qui~e a lot
of this and are using it in fertilizers
that will sell for less than $30 per ton,
just because we want to make the
right kind of goods; goods that will
make the crop grow and keep growing
and widl make a man take a pride in
his crop. Our ammoniated goods used
on lands that are prepared and culti.
vated, as the farmers in this section
usually prepare and cultivate their
lands, will get all out of the land that
there is in it and a farmer should not
be satisfied with making the land do
less than that. The trouble about us
ing a cheaa fr-rtilizer is just this; by
the time you find out it is no account
you have lost a crop and you have lost
a year's work and the only thing you
can do is to wait until next year and
try again to fertilize right.
Every sample of our goods that has
been analyzed at Clemson College ran
way above our analysis which shows
that we are making the right kind of
goods. There is absolutely no adulter
ation in the fertilizers we are making.
They are made of bone phosphate of
lime amnmoniates and nothing else'
There is nothing better made. Our
goods will feed and nourish the plant
from the time it sprouts until it is reidy
to be gathered and that is the k of
goo~m your land needs; that is the kind
of goods your land must have ~4make

this sort, wa have them and -they are
