UNDER THE NAME OF
O O T T O IV E O O 13 ?
Which they claim to be of the Highest Grade of Fertilizer sold In the South, and guarantee to equal
lu rcsu.ts Peruvian Quauo, pound for pound, and of more permanent benefit to the soil.
It has been used by several hundred Planters in North and South Carolina and Georgia, for two
seasons, with the following results :
It increases the crop from io J to 200 per cent.
It resists drought lu all caaes. The crop ls not affected by rust.
Ic matures the crop three to four weeks In advance, thus insuring the crop against early frosts,
or in tbe event of a backward season for planting enables the planter to put In his crop three or four J
weeks later, even as late as tue lat of June, with a certainty uf success.
It produces a better quality of cotton.
Looking at the low price of Cotton, the intelligent planter will readily comprehend the necessity
of using nothing bat the highest grade of Fertilizers, and of strictly avoiding those whose value
has been reduced by adult?rai lon or the use or cheap materials under the pretence of meeting the
low price of Cotton.
If bis crop ls only doubled by the use of "COTTON FOOD" It will give him from one to two hun?
dred per cent, profit, on h s outlay, with Cotton at I2>i cents per pound, and lt will enable him to plant
Tower acres, wltu a corresponding reduction of labor and expense, with better results.

Experience In the use ot this GUASO for the
past six years In this State, for Cotton and Corn,
has so far established its character for excellence
as to render comment unnecessary.
In accordance with the established policy of the
Company to furnish the best Concentrated Ferti?
lizer at ihe lowest cost to consumers, this Guano
ls put into market this season at tho above re?
duced price, which the Company ls enabled to do
by reason ot its large facilities ant the reduced
cost of manufacture.
The supplies put Into market this season are, aa
heretofore, prepared under the personal superin?
tendence of Dr. St. Jalian Ravenel, Chemist of
the Company, at Charleston. S. C., hence planters
may rest ass'ured tnat Its quality and c imposition
ls precisely the same as that heretofore sold.
At the present low price, every acre planted
can be fertilized with 200 pounds Guano at a cost
not exceeding the present value of 30 poonda of
cotton, while experience has shown that nnder
favorable condition of season and cultivation, the
crop ls increased by the application from two to
three-fold the natural capacity of the soil, hence
nnder no condition could its application fall to
compensate for the outlay.
