becauise you are getting the very best in the respective lines.
The analVc.;s of fertilizer does not mean anytbing until you
know the source of ammonia in the fertilizer. The di7erence
in the phosphoric acid and in the potash of-the different man
ofiactUr, rs o' fertilizer does not cut much figure, because it is
all )r-:ctically the same. One is about as good as another.
The diflerencin fertilizer depends upon the ammonia usei.
We use a little of nitrate of soda to make the crop start off
nicely, and then we use blood, tankage, fish, cotton seed meal
and sulphate of ammonia. This makes the best goods put in
sacks and it makes a goods that will analyze well.
A manufacturer can get ammonia from hoof meal, horn
meal, and ieather meal, and make a fertilezer that will analyze
higher than ours, and can make so that it will sell for $; a ton
less than we can sell ours and make more profit per ton than
we make on ours. This may account for some of the low
prices you hear of. But the goods won't make the crops that
our goods will make, for the reason that hoof meal and horn
meal and leather meal are available as plant food. They are
not available as plant food. They are not available as plant
food. They are not available for the simple reason that they
are not soluble in water. Hoof meal, and horn meal and leath
er meal are hoofs and horne and leather ground finely, just as
corn meal is corn ground finely. You can take hoof meal and
horn meal and leather meal and put it in water and let it stay
for a year and go back to it and the hoof meal and hama meal.
and leather meal are not dissolved. They can't possibly be
come plant food until they do dissolve.
Now sorn and cotton are planted and get their growth aad
maturity within seven month. If hoof meal and horn meal
and leather meal cah't be dissolved in water in a year, they
can't become plant food in seven months.
Now frankly, we don't suppose any fertilizer mauufacturer
ets his ammonia solkly from hoof meal and horn meal and
leather meal. We don't doubt that those who use it mix if
with tankage; for very few manufacturers use blood and fish.
They mix it with tankage'or cotton seed meal, but the amonia
in their fertilizer is unavailable just to the extent that they use
the hoof meal, horn meal and leather meal.
When you rememqer that ouly about 1-30th of an ounce of
ammonia gets to each ~plant, you can see that it will be neces
sary for all of this 1-3oth of an ounce to be available.
You can m ike but one crop year and as cotton in this country
is the money crop, it would seenm to be desirable to get the
best fertilizer for it.
We don't use hoof meal or horn meal or leather meal in
our factory. We don't suppose that anytmanufacturer in cre
ation would admit the use of it if he did use it, but you are at
leberty, and anyone else is at liberty to visit our factory at
such times as he wishes, with or without notice to us of _your
caming, stay as long as you please, go through the buildings,
take samples of any and everything you see and have it analy
zed for your own satisfaction. You may have an analysis made
on suspicion at auy time or any where you wish. We run an
open shop al the year 'round.
The law requires the fertilizer manufacturers to put th e
source of ammoniate used in his fertilizer on a t'rg to be at
tached to each sack. The tags on our fertslizers show that we
get the ammonia from blood, tankage, cotton seed meal, sul
phate of ammonia, and fish. The tags on m-ost other fertili
zers give the source of ammania as "organic" and mineral."
Mineral sources are sulphate of ammonia and nitrate of soda.
Organic may mean anything, you cant tell what it means from
the tag. When you buy fertilizer with a tag on it you are
buying a pig in a poke. This may also account for some low
prices you hear of. When a man has a thing to sell he usually
gives the best description of it that it will stand.
Sone people every year mix their fertilizer. They buy acid,
cotton seed meal, kainit and muriate and mix their awn goods.
Their only source of ammonia in this goods is cotton seed meal,
which is very good whilh it lasts. It gives out about the time
the cotton begins to fruit and that cause it to shed.
New, if blood, tankage, sulphate of ammonia, and fish are
worth anything in fertilizer, our goods must be better than your
home mixes goods, where you use none of these ammonilates.
By using cotton seed meal only as an ammioniate, you may
make a 8-3-3 for $2 a ton less than we ask for it..
That $2 a ton represent a difference of from from 40 to sixty
cents an acre on your fertilizer bill. We don't think there is any
doubt that 8-3-3 ammoniated as we ammoniate it will make 100
pounds of lint cotton to the acre more than a hamne mixed fertihi
zer with cotton seed meal as the only source of ammonia. This
100 pounds of lint cotton is now worth about $10.50. We don't
know what it will be worth next fall- off hand we should may
$8 to $12. It dloesn't seem likely that cotton will bring over 12e
next fall, and we sincerely hope it won't bring less than Sc.
Where farmers have been using the best fertilizers and using
it freely wi wish to suggest to them impropriety of using an in
ferior goods, and using it less frely, as if they do their lands will
become run dtown.
Most farming lands in this section are in a good state of
cultivation. It will be cheaper to keep them that way than to
let the land run down and then bring it uo. If you have a fat
horse it wvill take less corn to keep him fat than it will to let
him get poor and then fatten him up again.
It is the same way in fertilizing your land, and besides you
will lose the extra crop that you failed to make while your
land is run down. Our 10.4 and 1o-6 are good fertilizers to
use where your lands are fiat or where cotton grows very rank
and some of the bolls fail to open. This extra percentage of
phosphoric acid in the 10.4 and 10-6 will give the cotton boll
an early maturity. And when a cotton boll is grown it opens,
just as when a water-melon wvill ripen when it is growa and it
wont ripen until it gets its growth.
We want to urge you to use on your ordinary lands our
8-3-4, 9-3-3, 8-4-4, 10-4-4 and 1o-3-3- You will get more
ammonia and less filler and you will get more fish in these
fertilizers than in any others, We can make any analysis you
want. Making fertilizer is like making clothes. You can
take a bolt of cloth to a taylor and from that bolt he can naake
a suit of clothes to fit a 1o year old boy, and by using more
cloth he can make a suit of clothes to fit a man weighing 250
And now a last word to the home mixers. If you use the same
ammoniates we use your goods will cost you more than we ask
you for ours, and your goods won't be as well made as ours be
cause you are not equipped for it. If you don't use the ammoni
ates we use your goods will not be as good as ours, nor as well
If you give two cooks the same material for making baead one
will make better bread than the other. The more experien~ed
cook will make the bread. And the fertilizer man who gie his
time and thought to it and has the equipment, Is bound to mix it
better than the man who only mixes a few days in the sprin~ e ef
the year without the eQuipment.
