Is the mpst effective compound yet discovered for destroying the insects infesting the orange tree, and IB a sovereign

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

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

Injury.This J

insecticide has been used by some of the largest orange growers in the State during.,. the past two years, and htt
given perfect satisfaction. References furnished on application.For .

Rust Mite use 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 i item of expense in spraying tree ,

It is better and cheaper to use the Insecticide at full strength, viz.: One gallon of solution to 50 gallons of 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"ill .

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. 'j

T'HE'IR 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 pan of May. ;
Mr.BIOELOW 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
,8500,and other cars at fancy prices. No Brand of Fertilizer has Realized One-Third as Good Results. Write for full information regarding our different brands of Special Mixtures.



i 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 bringin

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

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 total of $300, you have double freight? amounting to $220 '

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


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

GENTLEMEN.,have read with much interest Prof. Pratt's analysis of your O. S. C.Lime,reported in the FARMER AND FRUIT GROWER of the 9th inst. I purchased two tons of you about three
months ago and sowed it broadcast over two acres of newly cleared up bay-head land. I have now growing over 4,000 cabbages, 1,500 tomato plants,several hundred e jg plants,beets,lettuce, cauliflowerand
onions all doing remarkably well,all of which I attribute to the use of your 0. S. C.Lime. Less than four months ago this garden was a wet,swampy bay-head. I have four acres now to clear
up, and shall use a tou to an acre. Yours truly,
