IOWA SEED COMPANY, DES MOINES, IOWA
SEEDS TESTING AND TRIALS
Our stock of vegetable seeds we are sure cannot be
excelled either in quality of selection by any firm in
the country, as we watch our growing crops with great
care, taking pains to isolate and keep pure and true to
name. Every variety listed in desirable and has our
recommendation. Our packets are, we believe, as well
filled as any reliable seed dealer's in the United States,
and, in fact, a comparison has shown that they contain
more seed, on the average, than those of any other
firm whose packets we have secured. We pay the
postage on vegetable seeds at these prices, except on
Beans, Peas and Corn at the 3 lb. and larger quantities.
We make it a rule to carefully test all seeds. We
carry on extensive trials by which we are enabled to
offer only those strains of seeds which come up to the
standard of purity and excellence, and are of the high-
est vitality, and our Choice Iowa Seeds are sure to
please. The vegetable seed department is under the personal supervision of the president of our company. He places the
contacts, inspects the growing crops, superintends the farm operations in summer and dur'ng the busy months in spring
he gives personal oversight to the order filling department. We give you high quality in our Choice Iowa Seeds.
SEEDS BY PARCEL POST
Customers are urged to use the Parcel Post . We return Excess Postage.
BE SURE AND ADD ONE POUND ADDITIONAL TO COVER WEIGHT OF PACKING
Many of our friends will prefer to have their seeds come by parcel post rather than by express. There is not much difference in the cost of transportation by these two methods, but if you want to the seeds to come by mail you must send postage, because it must be prepaid. We submit herewith a table showing the postage per pound to each state. This is figured in the way to be most easily understookd by our friends. The only thin to remeber is to add one pound over the actual amount of seeds you order to cover the weight of packing. For example, you live in Alabama and you order three pounds of Gradus peas by parcel post. You will add 24 cents to the price quoted in the catalogue. If you live in Illinois and want 15 lbs. of peas by parcel post, add 64 cents to the price in the catalogue.
If the postage you send is more than is necessary the surplus will be returned to you inclosed in a small envelope within the package. If you do not send postage we will take it for granted you want the goods forwarded by express or freight.
Remember that we pay the postage on garden seeds ordered by the packet, ounce, quarter pound or pound, no matter what the cost, but on larger quantities postage must be added if we are to send them by mail.
OUR POSTAGE RATE FROM DES MOINES TO ALL IOWA POINTS IS ONE CENT PER POUND.
