If we? you had a showing for fine prices, it is in
the crop of Tobacco to be planted this year.
X j j j
We keep a store, and strive to have in that store everything a farmer would like
to buy, both for himself and his family. We want our customer to be a cheerful man,
ami if he has money in his purse he will be cheerful; but he can't be if, when he comes
to sell his' crop, it brings him little or nothing. Everybody knows that on the fertilizer
he uses, allowing the season to be at all favorable, depends the result of his crop, and
this being the case, he hafc-no riht to risk that crop On anything that has not been
tried aud proved. The following will show what has been "'tried and proyed," in the
fertilizer way, on tine tobacco, and Major Raolakd, of Halifax county, Ya., the great
'tobacco authority, aud grower of gedigree tobacco seed, js the man who tells about it.
If anybody ljioic$ what tobacco is he certainly does:
"There are several brands of fertilizer manufactured specially for tobacco, differing
in composition, price, and merit f and after repeated experiments with, most, if not all
the best, the author gives it as his decided opinion, that for fijic, bright, silky tobaccc
DTQIKG ECJUAL8 the
On a bright cold morning in De
cern ber when a keen Nor'wester
was causing the fortunate possessors
of topcoats to button them up more
closely, a jovial party was clustered
around the roaring, cherry stove in
the snug cabin of the "Minnehaha,"
These persons were not unreasona
ble pleasure seekers, but were voya
gers from Wilmington, to that sandy
city by the sea which bears the wild,
weird name of Smithville, and thence
to lands beyond the sea. The party
consisted of a stalwart, handsome
Norwegian captain and his pretty
Norwegian bride, destined to share
with him for the first time the tips
and downs (and they are distressing
ly lively sometimes) of a sailor's life,
a jovial little barrel-shaped German,
who looked the very personification
of the old adage "laugh and grow
fat," and last but not least several
rosy cheeked damsels of assorted na
tionalities, the daughters of various
captains whose ships lay at Smith
ville. These damsels, judging from
the multiplicity of their parcels, had
been indulging in that great feminine
luxury "shopping,"and were returning
to their vagrant homes. Besides the
cabin passengers there was a little
knot of deck passengers gathered to
gether forrard. These were for the
most part truant "Jacks" who had
run the risk of their captains' ire
and certain punishment for the sake
of a parting glass of grog with some
charming maid with an extensive
capacity for tarry lovers. These des
perately amorous mariners were un
der the convoy of their respective
"old men," and were consequently a
lugubrious looking party. In about
three hours after leaving Wilming
ton, the Ville de Smith hove in sight.
As we steam between the monstrous
vessels lying at and o there was n
; lusty hailing of ships by the passen
gers of the Minnehaha, and a simul
taneous dipping of fl:igs aboard ti e
j crafts whose commanders u"comman
i dertsses" were among our number.
! "Echo ahoy !" Rialto ahoy !" 'Tolan-
dra ahoy !" rent the air, aud by the
! time we reached the wharf a lively
' race was ensuing between the gi-is of
j the different ships, trying which
j should first reach us. After a good
j many ejaculations by the boat's crew,
induced by the specific gravity and
general unman getblenessof my Sara
toga, we pulled off' and in ten min
! utes were alongside the great black
hull of the Rialto. This vessel had
been ami was destined again to be
tor many months my home my pris
on, and "guiendube ?" my funeral
pyre, ore sepulchre, for as Bill Arp
says of womankind, with knowledge
gained by experience, ships "are va
riegated and peculiar" in their ac
! tious. My hand was srrasned in the
cordial but excruciatingly vigorous
welcome of "Min Herr Styrmoud"
Jargensen. This hearty "velkom
men om bord" assured me that I was
at home again. All morning we
worked hard endeavoring to get the
remainder of our stores on board be
fore ebb tide. In the afternoon a
strong south wester effectually termi
tinder the demonstration of feminine
rule, u rely it would not be daunted
by the absence of feminine apparel.
The young "Fro," after much per
suasion disappeared - into an inner
state room whence shortly emerged,
clad in glowing blushes and a hybrid
attire which seemingly added more
to her confusion than her comfort.
After the well being of the outer
man had been secured, a diminutive
tow headed cabin boy made his ap
pearance at the door and disgorged a
string of gutterals, "Versagod Fruen
og Herreu teen er fardig," (If you
please, ladies and gentlemen, tea is
ready.) We adjourned to the dining
salon to partake of a typical Scandi
navian repast, consisting of black
bread, white bread, Norwegian smok
ed salmon, preserved fish roes, a
mysterious and utterly undefinable
parcine preparation. Ost, a kind of
cheese which smells like Vesuvius in
eruption and compared with which
Cimburger is aromatic with other
dishes too numerous to mention and
too hard to spell. Scandinavians
never drink tea or coffee at their meals
but always after. At the conclusion
of the meal we all arose aud bowing
to our host, said "Tak fer mad"
(thanks for the food,) after which we
repaired again to the inner salon.
Capt. B. is a B. A. of the Royal
Christiana Institute, and the master
of eight modern and two ancient lan
guages. He is also an accomplished
musician, and favored us with a
charming selection from his "reper
toire." Now a gem from Strauss,
now a snatch from II Trovatare, or a
bit from I Puritani or La Somnam
bula, then the spirited strains of a
national anthem. Most strikingly
beautiful and characteristic are the
Folkgesang, and some pieces from
the Scandinavian lieber. One does
not require to be told that these
heart songs had their birth in the
land of the sea kings, the land of
Odin and Thor. The spirit of that
far away peninsular runs through the
whole. Now we hear the sullen Arc
tic waves as they break upon that
iron bound coast, now the rush and
scream of the circling sea gulls, again
the shriek of the wintry gale as it
sweeps with resistless fury over snow
ed by a long line of milky foam.
Clearly there was no chance for the
Rialto to unfurl her white wings that
day. We abandoned ourselves to
another day of weary waiting. The
next day was as gloriously bright as
the most exacting mariner could de
sire. All over the harbor was heard
the joyous songs of the sailors, and
the clank, clank, of the windlasses as
uie -outwaru hound" hastened to
take advantage of the favoring breeze.
Long ere the rosy fingers of the god
dess of the dawn had drawn aside
the sombre hangings of her couch,
the Rialto had spread her snowy
wings to the gen fie N. W. breeze,
and was speeding toward the land of
sunrise. On crossing the bar we
found ourselves in the midst of a
fleet of vessels. Some eager ones,
catching the first whisper of the long
ed for breeze, had gone out in the
early watches, "while stars their vi
gils kept," and were now towering
clouds of gleaming canvas. Others,
mistrustful of the propitious elements
had waited to see what came in Au
rora's train. From their decks came
the "ohantants" of the slothful mari
ners as they "sheeted home the top
sails," or shook out the folds of the

Messrs. Mathews & Williamson, of Reid s ville, N. C, wrote the following to the
Company, and state that they have seen nothing since to change their judgment.
"From our own pctsonal experience, and it covers a long time, in watching the re
sults from the use of various brands of commercial fertilizers handled in this section, it
our mature judgment that the 'ANCHOR BZL2L2KD' stands at t he head of all
for the production of 'fine, tsfll-yjyeUott tobacco. The plant seems to receive more fitting
nourishment from the use of this article than from any other, and we arc of opinion
that if our farmers made it their stand-by, we would hear less of light chaffy tobacco,
having some color but no body, and tliat the farmer would realize the result he ought
to enjoy from his labor; for low-grade tobacco will not bring big money."
Now we want you to have '"big money" for your crop; because wc not only desire
you to make good" bills with us, but pay for them when they are made; hence wc han
fc the-'Anchor Brand,' ad will supply you, in quantities to suit, direct from the
factory. We don't want people to abuse us about their fertilizer; we, therefore, sell
0Iily what time has shown to be the best. So, make no arrangements in this Hue, until
J"hi see or confer with us. You certainlv can't afford to take any risk this vear.
