As result of the growing
scarcity of labor, many farmers
are finding it necessary to con
fine their efforts to small areas.
This searcity of labor, with a
consequent concurrence of high
prices, has been a stimulus to
ward theluse of improved labor
saving machinery, which is be
inig increased annually.
Many of the best farmers are
now operating their farms on a
r ~. basis, but while
the nihods now used are in
m an ycases very good, they are
of'tern Dot the best that could
bemployed. Within the
.ast few years more atten
ion has been given to the study
o adaptation of soils to the
different crops than formerly,
cease' wently improvement of
v :ilds are noted.

(. I eil istake. You run no risk and take no chances
eca'u ' o ar- etting the very best in the respective lines.
Th nah of frtilizer does not mean anything until you
nov t ourci of ammonia in the fertilizer. The di7erence
P the ihophric lacid and in the potash of the different man
Sa1t. - 1 eriize r does not cut much figjure, because it is
-1 p :cay ihe s-ame. One is about as good as another.
The diferenicn lertilizer depends upon the ammonia used.
e use a little of nitrate of soda to make the crop start off
Isceb:. and then we use blood, tankage, fish, cotton seed meal
S uphate of arnmonia. This makes the best goods put in
-sacks and it makes a groods that will analyze well
A manufacturer can get ammonia from hoof meal, horn
-nea, and ieather meal, and make a fertilezer that will analyze
'igner than ours, and can make so that it will sell for $3 a ton
ess than we can sell ours and make more profit per ton than
xe make on oirs. This may account for some of the low
'rices you hear of. But the goods wor't make the crops that
ur goods will make, for the reason that hoof meal and horn
?neal and leather meal are available as plant food. They are
act available as plant food. They are not available as plant
ood. They are not available for the simple reason that they
ire not soluble in water. Hoof meal, and horn meal and leath
r meal are hoofs and horne and leather ground finely, just as
7orn meal is corn ground finely. You can take hoof meal and
iorn meal and leather meal and put it in water and let it stay
or a year and go back to it and the hoof meal and hain meal
md leather meal are not dissolved. They can't possibly be
-ome Iplant food until they do dissolve.
Now sorn and cotton are planted and get their growth and
naturity within seven month. If hoof meal and horn meal
mnd leather meal cah't be dissolved in water in a year, they
:an't become plant food in seven months.
Now frankly, we don't suppose any fertilizer mauufacturer
Yets his ammonia sokely from hoof meal and horn meal and
eather meal. Ve don't doubt that those who use it mix if
vith tankage; for very few manufacturers use blood and fish.
'hey mix it with tankageor cotton seed meal, but the amonia
a their fertilizer is unavailable just to the extent that they use
he hoof meal, horn meal and leather meal.
WVhen you rememqer that ouly about 1-30th of an ounce of.
immonia gets to each plant, yo~u can see that it will be neces
ary for all of this 1 -30th of an ounce to be available.
ocan inuke but one crop year and as cotton in this country
s the money crop, it would seem to be desirable to get the
lest fertilizer for it.
We don't use hoof meal or horn meal or leather meal in
ur factory. We don't suppose that anytmanufacturer in cre
tion would admit the use~ of it if he did use it, but you are at
ei-rty. : a anyone else is at liberty to visit our factory at
uch times as he~ Vwishes. with or without notice to us of your
su ~yas long as you please, go through the buildings,
:.ae s:unples of any and everything you see and have it analy
.ecd for your own satisfaction. You may have an analysis made
en suspicion at auy time or any where you wish. We run an
?apen shop al the year 'round.
T'he law requires the fertilizer manufacturers to put th e
sourc vio ammonmate used in his fertilizer on a tr~g to be at
ached to each sack. The tags on our fertslizers show that we
get the ammonia from blood, tankage, cotto.n seed meal, sul
pJhate of ammonia, and fish. The tags on most other fertili
sers give the source of ammania as "organic" and mineral."
Mineral sources are sulphate of ammonia and nitrate of s'da.
Drganic mnay mean anything, you cant tell what it means from
:he tag. When you buy fertilizer with a tag on it you are
iuying. a pig in a poke. This may also account for some low
>rices you bea~r of. WVhen a man has a thing to sell he usually
'ives the: best descrip.tion of it that it will stand.
>onoi pe'ople everw year mi x their fertilizer. They buy acid,
Otton seed meal, kainit and muriate and mix their awn goods.
1Their only. source of ammonma im this goods is cotton seed meal,
which; is very good1 whie it lasts. It gives out about the time
:hP co tton begins to fruit and that cause it to shed.
Nixw. if b'lood,. tankage, sulphate of ammonit and fish are
iXort any~'~thing in fertilizer, our goods must be better than your
"nome mixes gotods, where you use none of these anmmoniates.
By usin'g (crtonl sed meal only a~s an amumoniate, you may
nlak a 3- for es a ton less than we ask for it.
1hatii-2 a ton represent a difference of from from 40 to sixty
'en :m acre on younr fertilizer bilL. We don't think there is any
'onbt r~at S-3-:- ammnoniated as we ammoniate it will make 100
)2unds of lini c-otton to the acre more than a hame mixed fertili
with retton seed umal as the only source of ammonia. This
. pond of Iinft (cotton is now worth about 810.50. We don't
n:ow what it wvill be worth next fall- off hand we should say
e -E ! dosn't mcem likely that cotton will bring over 12c
-ex< fl!l. real e sincerely horit won't bring less than Sc.
Where foirines have beeni using the best fertilizers and using
i fr'eely wvi wish to su;:2Est to them impropriety of using an in
Trior' goods, andi using it less frely'. as if they do their lands will
hcm runii& d11(own.
Mlost farming lands in this section are in a good state of
:ultivation. It will be cheaper to keep them that way than to
et the land run down and then bring it UD. If you have a fat
iorse it wi take less corn to keep him fat than it will to let
iim get poor and then fatten him up again.
It is the same way in fertiLizing your land, and besides you
vill lose the extra crop that you failed to make while your
and is run down. Our 10-4 and 1o-6 are good fertilizers to
:se where your lands are fiat or where cotton grows very rank
md some of the bolls fail to open. This extra percentage of
hosphoric acid in the 10-4 and 1o-6 will give the cotton boll
m early maturity. And when a cotton boll is grown it opens,
ust as when a water-melon will ripen when it is grown and it
mont riien until it gets its growth.
\\~e w'.nt to urge you to use on your ordinary lands our
3-4. 9-3-3. 8-4-4, 10-4-4 and 10-3-3. You will get more
minonia and less filler and you wvill get more fish in these
eruinzes taainm any others, We can make any analysis you
iant. .iaking fertilizer is like making clothes. You can
?jke a Loit of cloth to a taylor and from that bolt he can make
sut of clothes to fit a 10 year old boy, and by using more
om h can make a suit of clothes to fit a man weighing~ 250

ma~i~t es We use your goods will cost you more than we ask
