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

selves. for the last ten years, we speak from experience when we 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 sprayed|Ion ..

the trees, at any stage .growth? without injury to them or the persons using it. -

As sulphur will riot kill all insects affecting the orange tree, we have perfected another insecticide, known as Tar Emulsion, whichis

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.

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

,. THEIR 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
r' money out of tbeir 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.
r" Mr.BIGELOW sold two cars in New York,through Sgobel Day,for$456.00 first car and$530.00 second car-The hi lest price ever realized in New York. He also sold one car in.Boston for
,r 9600;and other cars at,fancy prices. No Bl'andof, Fertilizer Realized One-Third as Good Results. WnteforfuU information regarding our different brands of Special Mixtures.
,:.,..- .

f 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

4 t in 'New*York at least:$300.. Deduct $140.f"eight! $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

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

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

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