Gentlemen: I am well pleased with tho
result of the uso of the "Double Refined
Poudretto" on my crops. I tried it on both
oom and cotton, and am satisfied wherever
it was applied the yield iras moro than
double what it would havo o-ten without it.
I regret exceedingly my not using it moro
extensively tho present year, but will try
to mako up my IOBB by purchasing a larger
quantity next spring. I regard it as tho
cheapest, most reliable, ami easiest man?
aged fertilizer within my knowledge, and
cheerfully recommend it fas I have tried it
thoroughly) to tho farmers of this section,
and particularly to those planting cotton,
from the fact of its causing it to maturo
from ten days to two weeks oarhcr than it
would without tho uso of tho Poudrctte. I
also used it on my garden, and found it of
much benefit to nil kinds of plants. Very
respectfully, Ac. G. S. OGLESRY.
Extract from a lotter received from Prof.
Martin, of Hampdon. Siduev College,
Va., dated July 1, 1867:
The Double Refined Poudrctte.is operat?

James R. Dev, Esa.
Sir: Tho Double Refined Poudretto I
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 put it on cotton, on very pool
ground, and thinks it doubled his crop. 1
used it on corn. It answered finely, and
was thought by tho hand that cultivated
the crop to be fully equal to Rhode's Supei
Phosphate. I also used it on about ar
acre of cotton, and I am clearly of opinior
that it is the host and cheapest fertilizoi
in use, and I expect to order several tom
this winter. Yours, very respectfully,
Ellaville, Schlep Co., Ga., Oct. 4, 18G7.
Tho Doublo Relined Poudretto, pur
chased ot you last spring, I think, in
creased my crop of cotton 150 poundB po
acre; put it upon worn-out pino land, a
the rate of 200 pounds per acre, drilled ii
with cotton seed. Yours, Ac,

Dear Sir: i can safely say that you
Doublo Refined Poudretle is far auperio
to any other fertilizer for cotton; for! hav
given it a fair trial this season. Yours,

Sir: I applied the Double Refined POT
drette by itself, and in combination wit
other fertilizers, on cotton, and am please
with it; BO much so that it ia my proser
intention to purchase a larger supply <
you the next year to apply to my cottc
crop. Yours very respectfully,

Sir: In reply to your Inquiry of tho r
suite of our experienco in the uao of yoi
improved Poudretto-purchased of you f
this year's cotton crop-vre would beg lea1
to aay that tho present season has bec
one quite unfavorable to the action of ?
Soveral kinds of manures wero need 1
mi, with tho exception of your Pondrett
with littlo or no effect to tho crop.
Where tho Poudrctte was used, it ga
UH near half a bale moro per acre, and
caused the cotton to open much earlier;
and wo would, therefore, recommend the
samo as n concentrated manure for tho
growth of cotton, aa well au improvement
to tho soil. Yours, verv respectfully,
