Surely effective and cheapest material offered for the destruction of insects. Its proper use will kill the spider, rust mite, anguil-

lula, moving scale and fungus growths. It is a sure remedy for the "foot-rot" and the "blight" of the orange and the wilt of the pineapple.It .

will not only prevent the oranges from rusting, but will greatly improve the classification of the fruit.

: IB the most effective compound yet discovered for destroying the insects infesting the orange tree, and is a sovereign

' remedy for: the various forms of fungi on trees and plants. Being free from all substances of a caustic, corrosive,or poisonous -

nature it can be handled with perfect safety to the person, and applied to the trees at any stage of growth without

insecticide has been used by some of the largest orange growers in the State during the past. two years, and hs*

given perfect satisfaction. References furnished on application.For .

Rust Mite Ute one quart, to fifty gallons of water. When used at this strength the_ trees should be sprayed for

the Rust Mite twice a month through the season. Where labor constitutes the principal item of expense in spraying trees

it is better and cheaper to use the Insecticide at full strength, viz.: One gallon of solution to 50 gallons of water, u the

fumes from the Insecticide will kill the Rust Mite even if the solution should not happen to touch them. In using the

Insecticide at this strength it will save three or four sprayings through the season, thereby reducing the cost from onc-

third to one-half.: This Is an Advantage Possessed by no Other Preparation of Sulphur. If used in this manner it

"will also kill the other insects that may be moving on the trees. '

For.Red Spider and Scale use one gallon to fifty gallons of water. General directions for using sent on application.

Price 20c. Per Gallon, in barrels. If there is no agent in your vicinity, write for price delivered. .

Spraying Apparatus furnished to our customers at cost.

THEIR CItLItBRATItD.Brand of TRUCK FARl\IItRS' SPl-:. iL.'produced tJ best crop of the year,and the patrons of this brand have been very successful and made large sums of i
money out of their crops the past year. Messrs' Bigelow an 1 a> .J.Anderson,of Bushnell,Fla.,started their crops of Watermelons into market the latter part of May. t,
Mr.BIOELOW sold two cars in New:York,through Sgobel&Day,for$49d vg.first;; car.and$530.00 second car-The highest price ever realized in ,New York. He also sold one car in ,Boston for

,IF, YOU. CAN produce a car load of fine early m J.from oulruck Farmers' Special and sell at $300 or over per car in New York,

'" ,is'it not;,more remunerative than using slower and cheaper fertilizers ? Let us figure: A car of early melons that cut well will bnngl

in- New York at.least $300. Deduct $140 (freight; $110; commission, $30;) and you will get $160 net proceeds. But if you use a fertilizer 1t

,is not'carefully prepared or adapted to the crop and soil requirements of the State you get your melons i into a late market: and are 1

fortunate if they bring freight charges. Say, however, two later cars bring a total of-$300, you have double freight,. amounting to $220, '

'and commission, $30, leaving only $50 as your net proceeds.-OBSERVE: THE DIFFERENCE! -
