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

for the. last ten years, we speak from experience when vie make the following statement :

That SULPHUR SOLUTION INSECTICIDE is by far the cheapest and best preparation yet offered to the orange grower.

It has never yet" been 'Adulterated or Diluted in any form whatever in order to Lower the Price, as

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 sprayedjon

the trees, at.any stage of growth, without injury to them or the persons using it.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 i 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. <.4

These: insecticides have been used by some of the largest orange growers in the State and have given perfect satisfaction. ,"4.,
