This is io certify that 1 have used five ton
of the Harris Empire Compost this vear, ami
find it eq gaily ns good if not better than any
commercial fertilizer 1 have used or noticed
used, even at the cost of sixty dollars per ton,
making an increase of about 100 per cent, on
slubble lands. 1 expect to buy more largely
next year. i. A. ARCHIBALD.
Pleasant Valley, Lancaster Countj-, S. C,
This is to certify that I have used Harris'
Empire Compost and am verv will pleased
with it, as it. not only prevents rust, but is u
good as any of the high priced Guanos, the
cost per ton making it the cheapest Fertilizer
sold. W. D; II AY' ATT.

This is to certify that I used Harris' Empire
Lompost last year on my .and for heat, and
though I did not give it a fair trial, as I left
out one of the ingredients, but must say thai
where it was used mv wheat wa never belter,
and where I did not use it I find that it is verv
inclillerent. I shall use six tona this Spring.
1 consider Hie lormula invaluable to farmers..

Messrs. ilson Black Gentlemen : It
gives me much pleasure to state thai I used the
Coruost bought of you last Winter, and must
say that I am' highly pleased with it.- I used
it on an old broom sedge field that would pro
duce nothing, and must Ray the result is aston
ishing. I consider it an invaluable compost, and
ust the thing needed to bring out our old,
worn-out lauds. Yours, very respectfully,
Dr, J. F. SMYfcR.

I take pleasure in stating to my brother far
mers all over the country that I used, last year,
Harris' Empire Compost, under both corn and
cotton, and the result was astonishing to all my
The cost was only one fourth of what I had
been paying for commercial fertilizers.

This is to certify that Lused .Harris' Empire
Compost Inst year side by ide with several
commercial fertilizers, and I find that theyleld
nuiu uuiim vhjiu post was oue-ujurin greater
and the quality belter than any. It makes th
cotton mature better, and, in my judgment, ii
i preferable in every repecL The cost was
one fourth the price pf high priced guanos, and
one ton will go over ten acres of land
