Florence, Ala.
Gentlemen:—
1 have used your Fertilizer for five or
six years and am glad to say I am well
pleased with the results of it. I used
it under eight acres of cotton last year
and got eight bales of cotton. I used
200 pound per acre and this year I plant
ed the same piece of ground in corn
and peas and got 30 bushels of corn per
acre and 12 bushels of pers per acre
and did not use any fertilizer under the
corn and peas this year. So you can
see by this it pays to use your fertili
zer in this country. For watermelons
and vegetables it can’t be beat.
Yours truly, W. D. Joiner

Do you believe that every eerit you con keep at home is liable to
come back to you in some w ay ?
Don’t you believe that every time you send off your money for
someteing y'ou can get at home that you show to the world at large
that your own particular part of the world is not up-to-date and is
an acknowledgement that your hohne resources are very poor?
Don’t you believe that you can get as good Piano or Organ at Tu

for the same money? If not, why?
\ Now, we most positively assert that we can sell you as good goods
as you can get anywhere on earth for the money, and if you will take
