This Manure is one of the best in the market, and Farmers will do well to bear in mind that by using this Manure they are giving back to the land Zli?tg originally came from it. Last year we were obliged to stop our Agents from booking orders, very early, and we had te refuse many owing to the extraordinary success of the manure the season before, and last season was even a greater success. Intending customers therefore will do well to obtain their supplies early, in order to prevent disappointment. Ask your neighbour what the results have been. We manufacture one Manure only. ONE QUALITY, ONE SORT, ONE PRICE. We are the largest manufacturers of this par- tioular Manure in this country. R. W. CONNELL, Junr., & CO., Ltd.
