Your Cotton Crop Can Be Increased
It costs no more to cultivate an acre that produces
two bales of cotton than an acre which produces only
one-quarter of a bale. Why not see what you can do
Other men have been able to double and more than double
their yield per acre with a liberal application of Virginia-Carolina
Messrs. Lucas & Jackson of Kelsey County, Tenn., used Vir
ginia-Carolina Fertilizer on about 55 acres planted with cotton, and
say: “We have the finest crop of cotton we ever saw, and all the
people around here think the same. We actually counted 447 bolls
on one stalk. Another stalk had by actual count 409 bolls, forms,
souares and blossoms. On about 8 acres we expect to make about
2 bales to the acre, and an estimate of adjoining farms not so fer
tilized and under other cultural methods, will yield only 1 bale to
five acres. ”
An interesting picture of the cotton plants referred to will be
found in the new 1909 Virginia-Carolina Farmers’ Year Book, copy
of which may be had from your fertilizer dealer, or will be sent
free, if you write our nearest sales office.

For the past two years there has been general complaint
in February and March about stock not eating. We have at
last succeeded in finding a feed that will stop this talk. We
offer the best-balanced feed on the market—ALFACORN. You
may ask, what is Alfacorn? It is not a medicated stock food,
but pure Alfalfa Meal, choice Corn and Wheat products. Al
facorn is a green feed the year round, and an ideal mule and
horse feed. It is the best dairy feed on the market.
Alfacorn is the feed to use if your stock are sick. It is
the best and cheapest feed if they are well. It is the best feed
for brood mares.
Alfacorn is a boon to the city horse, that long-suffering
and patient animal who is tortured day after day and year after
year by the lack of what nature intendeed—A 6REEN FEED.
We have just received six hundred sacks of Alfacorn,
and want you to give it a trial.
