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. .

!. 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

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

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 .f water, as 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 one-

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.

_.- ,. '. .... '-'.: '-0 AND NEW YORK.


HEIR' CELEBRATED. Brand of TRUCK FARMERS' SPECIAL produced the first best crop of the year,and the patrons of this brand have been very successful and made large sums of
money out of their crops the past year. Messrs. G. W. Bigelow and N.J.Anderson, of Bushnell, Fla., started their crops of Watermelons into market the latter part of May.
it r.BIGELOW sold two cars in New'York,through Sgobel&Day,for$456.00 first car and$530.00 second car-The highest price ever realized in New York. He also sold one car in Boston for
$500,and other cars at fancy prices. No. Brand of Fertilizer has Realized One-Third as Good Results. Wnte for full information regarding our different brands of Special Mixtures.



IF YOU CAN produce a car load of fine early melons.from our Truck 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 bring

:. _. 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

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

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! .

'S S ,By writing us we can give you some valuable points on this subject and show you how to obtain remunerative crops.


We give Remunerative Crops. Others furnish Theory. No. 50 West Bay Street, JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, -
