money at the disposal of the Kent young

that there is quite as much happiness in

The Bowker Fertilizer Company
Is a Massachusetts corporation, organized for the purpose of manufacturing and dealing in fertilizers
and fertilizer materials. It is not interested in any other company, nor is any other company interested in it. It buys its
own goods, manufactures on its own formulas under the personal supervision of its own officers, conducts its own busi
ness without any interference or control by any other company or officers of any other company, all statements to the
contrary notwithstanding. 'All its brands bear the Bowker name as manufacturer. The
originated by Prof. Levi Stockbridge, of Amherst, Mass., are its leading brands. They are made double the strength of
ordinary fertilizers, and farmers will find them the most economical to buy because they go twice as far in the field. The
Company, however, manufactures fertilizers of all grades, and farmers who think a lower-priced fertilizer will answer their
needs should consult our agents before buying. We use only the best material in either case.
The home office of the Company is located at 43 Chatham Street, Boston, where the responsible officers and managers can be found at any time ; and
factories are located, one at Brighton, Mass., and one at Elizabethport, N.J., which can be visited at any time by interested patrons to see what the
is doing and what it is using in the way of fertilizer stock. It has a large and growing business among the best farmers, which it has built up and hopes
tain without pursuing any unusual or unbusiness-like course.
Our specialties are fully described in our catalogue, which will be sent free

manifested much stubbornness thus far,
and a duplication of February is not de

length along and the vernal equinox will
be welcomed, when it can be said the
winter of '94 and '95, is ended. The
necrological roll, has been large, even

the communities have been few that
