Last night when the veto came up, Mr. Rembert told the house that he had explained the provisions of the bill to the grovernor ' . a ANDERSON PHOSPHATE AND OIL cog Is making a fish, blood and bone goods this year which is absolutely without an equal on the market. We bought enough fish last summer to ammoniate 20,000 tons of goods but have decided not to manufacture more than 12,000 or 14,000 tons of mixed goods this year so that we will put all the fish in this 12,000 or 14,000 tons that we intended to put in 20,000 tons. We are putting in at least 50 per cent fish than we expected, and making at least 50 per cent better goods than we expected, you will make better crops than you have ever grown. Fish is the best ammoniate, the best xlant food, and lasts longer as a plant food than anything put in fertiliz er. This is one year that a man does not want to take any chances on his fertilizer. The crop was short last year and a good crop is needed.. It takes good fertilizer to make good crops. The supply of this fertilizer will be limited-12,000 to 14,000 tons won't go as far as 20,000 tons. The man who uses this fish good of ours under his crop this year will have advantages in crop making which a man who does not use this fish goods will be deprived of. We would like to see the home boys get their goods, for from all we can gather, the home boys need a good crop this year. You will never use a better fertilizer you have never have used any as good, This fertilizer besides being heavily ammoniated with flush is also ammoniated with blood, tankage, cotton seed meal, and sulphate of ammonia, making a fertilizer which will feed and nourish the crop from the time the plant sprouts in the ground, all through cultivating season, all through the laying by season and until the plant is grown and matured, and the crop ready to t e gathered. We are putting this fish in 8-5-5, 8-4-4, 9-3-3 and 10-4-4 goods. There is no fish in standard goods. Fish costs more than standard goods sell for. But then it pays to use the best goods. When people enter corn contests a'nd cotton contests they don't use home mixed goods, nor low grade goods. They use the higher grades be cause they know they can make better crops, Anderson Phosphate & Oil Co. J. R. VANDIVER, Prest. D. S. VANDIVER, Mg". W. B. FREEMAN, Pickens.
