Greenville, S. C.
March 29, 1911
Mr. G. W. Garrette,
Laurens, S. C.
Every farmer's child In the South
land, is familiar with the story of
' Jack and the Beanstalk." This was I
ouly a fairy tale; a myth to please
the fancy of innocent childhood. But
there is a lesson to oe learned from
this simple story; for had it not been
for Jack's faith and courage in plant
ing the bean seed, why he never would
have conquered the giant. Through
hi3 inquiring mind and great cour
age, he mounted tho beanstalk and
climbed '.he "ladder of fame."
Truth. Is indeed, stranger than fic
tion; and we have a real fact, a truth,
:o present to you that will bring you
a harvest of "golden eggs!" The story
Is brief?not in a nutshell?but in a
tew seeds of corn; then listen, my
We have purchased some of the won
Jorful corn, as raised by Jerry Moore.
>' Wlnona, S. C. Perhaps some of you
have heard of Jerry and bis famous
Prize Winning*' corn. From the iden
? ? al corn seed that we have in our
OOSSesslon, Jerry Moore raised some
thing over two hundred and twenty
olght bushels on a single acre! Think
il it, Mr. Farmer, and you can do the
;*me; and perhaps more, if you but
Make the effort. We paid $4.00 per
l ushel for this corn and we wish to
present you with a package of this
. ed; as we are Interested in your
welfare and prosperity. We are anx
. is to have every one of our farmer
Friends, In this section, and all over

The writer, recently, attended the
-?.vat Commercial Congress, which
- avened In Atlanta. Ca., where the
great promoters of commerce and
manufacturers of all department", met
together to Inter-change new ideas.
Where the North, the West, the Bast
:;d the South?all united In one corn
con bond of union and prog-ess. Here,
?a.s discussed the world's progress
la all forms, and the farmer, the cul
tivator of nature's Heids, was accord
ed a large slice on the right-of-way.
\\ was a verified fact, that the West
vas no longer the only place that corn
? :>uld be grown to greater advantage.
But the south. "Old Dixie Land." was
so, given a foremost place. And
nearer still, the home of your nativity.
South Carolina, the dear "Old Palmet
Mr. Farmer, think of what Jerry
Moore did With one acre. You can do
likewise. VOU are indeed, the "Lords
: Creation." The time is ripe for you

Itemcmbor, we have the corn ready
,V you; and If the supply Is exhaust
ed, why we will send for more of tho
canto seed. Let US hear from you in
. fcrence to the matter.
