Cattlemen: 1 am well pleased with tho
result of the usn of tho "Double Refined
Poudrettu" on my crops. I tried it on both
com and cotton, and am satisfied wherever
it was applied the yield was more than
doable what it Would have been without it.
1 regret exceedingly my not using it moro
extensively the present year, but will try
to make up my loss by purchasing a larger
quantity next spring. 1 regard it as the.
e. li eu pi st, most reliable, and easiest man?
aged fertilizer within my knowledge, and
cheerfully recommend it 'as I have tried it
thoroughly) to the fanners of tbis section,
sud particularly to those planting cotton,
from the fact of itH causing it to mature
from Icu days titt wo wreks earlier than it
would without tho use of thu Poudrette. I
also use 1 it on my gurdon, and found it of
ntttoh benefit to all kiwis of plants. Very
respectfully, Ac. ti. s. oGLESliY. "

bought for two other parties in connection
with myself-one of them used it on cotton
and corn, and thinks it answered finely;
tho other pnt it on cotton, on very poul
ground, mid thinks it doubled his crop. 1
used it on corn. It answered finely, ant}
was thought by tho hand that cultivated
the crop to be fully equal to Rhode's Hnpei
Phosphate. I also used it on about ar
aero of cotton, and 1 am ..leuriy of opinior
that il is tho best and cheapest fertilizet
in use, and I expect to order several toni
this winter. Yours, very respectfully,
