Cotton and Corn
We are recommending our 8-24-1, which
is 8 per cent, phosphoric 'acid, 2 J per ctnt.
ammonia, and one pfer cent. Potash, for cot
ton and corn. We employ a chemist at the
Fertilizer Mill all the time to analyze every
thing before it goes out, to see that all our
goods are at least as good as they should be
before they are shipped out, and our 8-24-1
analyzes 9.25, 2.72, 1.45. So you see you
are getting a better goods than we claim it to
be and a better goods than you pay for. But
that is the way we do business. Mr. Long,
the farm demonstrator for the State, says
the farmers of this section can make at least
one good crop without applying any more
potash. But it sometimes happens when you
install a pump in a well, it is necessary to
pour a little water down it to get it to pump
water, aiid we have an idea that a little pot
ash in your fertilizer will make that in your
soil a little mort; quickly available. Ana4 then
you have the satisfaction of knowing that
you have some potash under your crops be
cause you have put sonic there, and safety
first is the plan.
So we are earnestly recommending our
. 8-2i-1 for your cotton and corn this year.
You are really getting 9.25-2.72-1.45, but
that is your good fortune. Tne most of \you
have been fertilizing heavily for som? years
and we are satisfied this goods will give your
crops a good "send off." lt is a choice
We can make any grade of goods you
