If you are interested in the use of
fertilizer, I respectfully refer you to
the gentlemen named below, who used
genuine Peruvian Guano on their farms
and would suggest for your information
that you watch the growing crops man
ured with this guano, and decide for
yourself whether or not it will be to
your interest to use this goods on your
next crop. By the use of Peruvian for
three years, your lands can be brought
up to a high state of cultivation. Notice
the fruit on cotton where Peruvian is
used. Yours truly.

was used last year, and nothing this
