Orange Tree Food is used in this Grove with results fully set forth by Prof. Stone, in the TimN-Union Trade Edition. He there says: It may be considered a deli-
cate question upon which to give one's opinion and state his preference, but when one realizes that there are several braids of fertilizer in use m the State, for which
cores of thousands of dollars are paid each year, which are nearly worthless; known also that there is i no statute in this State providing for a State examiner, who
could protect the inexperienced and confiscate the worthleSs material offered on the market, it would,seem that if one had discovered a fertilizer that has proved its real
and intrinsic excellence by its valuable results, such a one would not only be excused in giving his opinion, but would owe it as a sense of duty to state to the publichis
preference! especially if such a one is not, and never has been the proprietor or agent of any special brand.
The writer of this article occupies this position.. and has used several kinds on some fifteen thousand orange trees and can conscientiously state that CLARK'S COVM
GUANO COMPANY'S FERTILIZER has given better results than any other he has ever used. t

This Surely Interests Our Growers and Truckers.
