I am a Candidate for the Prudential Hundred Thousand League this Year
Help me to the goal, that I may win one of the best Life Insurance trips. I have a good start so far of the one hundred thousand.
As we have something better than others, and something better than usual, I feel warranted in a good sum advertising expense to inform the people. The
people want Life Insurance, and why should they buy Life Insurance no good in time of War. There are no War Restrictions in the Policy of the PRUDEN
TIAL. To give you an idea of the dependable soundness of the PRUDENTIAL'S Policy and its popularity, the Company issued and revived more Life Insurance
in one year (1916) last year, than any other of the more than 260 companies operating in the U. S. had in force from its entire record of existence, excepting eight, ac
cording to the Blue Book published by the Spectator Company in 1916.
The Prudential Issued and Revived in 1916 $591,000,000 Life Insurance
THE REASON: The PRUDENTIAL has the STRENGTH of GIBRALTAR. It has the lowest rates with annual dividends, further reducing the pre
miums. It has no war restrictions, has no occupation restrictions, it has no travel restrictions, no restrictions whatever, except suicide
for one year. The policy is plain with no catches. The policy provides without cost, that if the holder becomes physically disabled,
he is excused from paying the premiums, and this without effecting the policy.
Read the war clause in the policy you have (or application) and see if it is good in time of war.
If war comes you will find it hard to get Lite Insurance. Act at once before it is too late. I cannot give here rates for all ages,
but take for instance age 20, rate for ordinary life, $14.83; 20-pay life, $22.43 per $1,000.00. Age 30, $18.91 and $26.81, etc.
You can surrender a 20-pay life policy with annual dividend off at the end of 20 years to the Company for more cash than you
have paid the Company. Drop me a card and I will see )^ou.

To make money j
is the object of]
the farmer as
well as of the
Real profit la
the difference be
j .W?V?|J lUiii gives
piont to the farm and a Money
Crop can only be a crop of a known
market value immediately convertible
Into money in any town at any time.
The problem of supplying the South
ern farmer with a cash market for
Dther crops that would yield as much
or more profit than ne derives from
the cotton crop, has engaged the at
tention of the farmer and his friends,
and with the assistance of the Boll
Weevil, they have found a solution of
the problem in Peanuts.
The Peanut crop offers wonderful
opportunities. It can be grown over
the entire South with profit.
It reaches its perfection in growth
and yield on well drained, gray, sandy
loam soils such as exist in the Coastal
Plains along the Atlantic Seaboard,
which territory ls now either occupied
or is being rapidly encroached upon
by the Boll WeevM.
There is a constant demand at a
"Cash Surrender Value" from a mar
ket that would be difficult to glut w?th
the peanut, for the reason that there
ure fiv? .avenues of profit.
]'*' Five Avenues of "Profit
First: Progressive oil mills through
out the South are eager buyers of the
Peanut and offer a spot cash mar
ket ai very remunerative prices. The
oil is in great demand.
Second: The nut and vines are a
splendid feed for cattle, producing a
quick growth of firm and tender meat
A proi.t in the sales of cattle thus
fed and fattened is a certainty.
Third: The best quality of peanuts
find a ready sale at top prices to the
manufacturers of candy, of peanut but
ter and other confections.
Fourth: Peanut cake (from the oil
mills), fed to hogs, makes a vigor
ous growth and gain in weight and
when properly "finished off" with
corn, gives a firm meat with the fat
containing a proper proportion of
st?arine for making good firm lard.
Feeding the whole nut to the hog
ls a mistake for two reasons: First,
the value or profit from the oil is
lost, and second, the oil of the nut
(ives an excess of oil over st?arine

and produces in the hog a soft, flabby
meat, the fat of which will not pro
duce lard of a proper consistency.
Fifth: The Peanut, being a legume,
is a soil builder and adds nitrogen to
the soil and works in splendidly in a
rotation with cotton or corn, both of
which are voracious feeders on nitro

amount of nitrogen from a quick acting
source to carry it to the nodule form
ing period while the presence in euffi
oient quantities of phosphoric) acid and
potash is essential during the growth
and maturity of the plant.
?n' application bf ? fertilizer con
taining 12 per cent available phos
phoric acid. 1 1-2 to 2 per cent am
monia and 2 per cent potash, applied
at the rate of from 400 to 600 pounds
per acre, will make a crop of both
nuts and hay sufficient to return the
cost of the fertilizer and leave a hand
some profit while an unfertilized crop
will barely return cost of production.
The Profit Value
The profit value of an acre of well
cultivated and fertilized peanuts ls
equal to the profit value of an acre of
cotton producing two-thtrds of a bale
to the acre.
The following tabulated cost and
value estimated by Dr. J. N. Harper,
clearly proves this point:
