Having been practical orange growers for a number of years, also in; the business of manufacturing, Insecticides and using them our- ii

selves for,the last ten years, we speak; from experience when we make the following statement :

; ': That. i SULPHUR'. SOLUTION... '- 4 INSECTICIDE...; : is'b'x' .far the cheapest and' best preparation yet offered to the orange grower. ..

,It has never yet ,been. Adulterated. Diluted in any form whatever in order to Lower the Price, as
." .. ', ,, .. ut '
other Insecticides have been throughout the State,

But is always uniform in strength and, can be depended on to accomplish the purpose for which it was made. It can be sprayedon| .

the, trees at:'any stage of growth: ,.without injury to them or the persons using it. '

P As sulphur will not kill all insects affecting the orange tree, we have perfected another insecticide, known as Tar Emulsion, which ,

is very effective in destroying Aleyrodes Citri (commonly known as the\ White Fly), also the Red Spider (not the Spotted mite or Yellow,

: Spider), and used,in combination with Sulphur Solution it will give better results than any insecticide ever used.

We have'tested" it'thoroughly the past two years ourselves, and know whereof we speak. I

-These insecticides have been used by some of the largest orange growers in the State and have given perfect satisfaction. .' !.',

THEIR CELEBRATED*'ferand of:TRUCK FARMERS''SPECIAL produced the first best crop of the year,and the patrons of this brandhave been very successful and made large sums of
money out of their crops the past year.: Messrs. G.W. Bigelow and'N;J.Anderson,Bushnell, ,Fla.,started their crops of Watermelons into market the latter pan of May.
Mr.BIGELOW sold two cars inifew-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
$5008.and other car 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.

that'.is'not carefully J prepared or adapted', fo the crop and soil :requirements of the State you get your melons ,into,a late' market: and arefpftunate

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