Now is the time tb make your purchase. From the beginning ol

prices will be raised as soon as peace is declared.
We have several very desirable tracts to sell at WAR PRICES

Read these descriptions:
Three tracts west of the city each of 40 to 45 acres which are very
Two tracts 6 miles esst of the city on road to Williamston.
100 acres near Seneca, well improved.
26 acres near Five Forks.
Three tracts of SO acres each, well improved, near Honea Path,

My lands are located in different parts of the county and I want to j
lett them to parties who have from $500.00 to $1,000.00 to pay on j
them, and lons time on balance. I am not in the market for any more
land as it b my intention to sell my holdings to farmers"who are rent
ers today, so they may have a chance to own a home cf their own
and help build up this county.
If you know how to farm, you are paying more rent than your

of land, pay $500.00 down, give your note and mortgage for
?000.00? die interest would be $160,00. Now you are a very

' The hardest people 1 have to sell is a renter. As a rule-his father

THE TROUBLE ABOUT
Meal and Acid
The trouble about fertilizing with meal ami acid is tbat you get
your ammonia from one source only, and that Is meal It all give*
out at once. Meal ls meal you know. In our mixed goods you get
the ammonia from meal mid tish and blood and tankage, and Sulphate
of Ammonia, ami as one of these ammoiiiatos glTes out, another
? ornes in so that you have your cotton aud your corn supplied with
plant food from the time it sprouts In thc ground, ?ll through tho
working season and through thc luving-by season, and until lt Is
ready to be gathered. Fish and blood last longer than meal, and sui.
phale of Ammonia acts more quickly than meal and so by using
these mixed goods of ours you get a complete fertilizer.
?hen your meal gives out your cotton sheds. The reason cotton
sheds is because it has not sufficient plant food. So when the meul
is used up in the soil your cotton sheds. It cannot do anything else.
And then our mixed goods are more thoroughly mixed than the men!
and arid will be. You could mix it as thoroughly as we can If you
wore prepared for lt. But you are not prepared and It won't pay you
lo prepare for It for one farm. We expect to supply a great many
farms with fertilizer and it pays us to prepare to have our Ingred
ients thoroughly mixed. Where un improperly mixed fertiliser is used
your crop will be Irregular and we ali know that the crop that turns
oft* the cotton ls the crop that runs regular all through! We believe
it Is economical to use thc mixed goods instead of mixing your meal
und acid. We will bc glad to Kell you.
