THE PAINE FERTILIZER CO. OF MCKSONVILLE, FLA t


AND NEVN YORK. .. .
.R E FAR. IN TaR LEAD THIS sI 1\.SoN: ,
CELEBRATED'Brand ot 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
,THEIR 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.
Mr.BIOKLOW told 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 4
$500. .,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. '
....
.

A FEW FACTS FROM FIGURING:

f IF- YOU CAN produce a car load' of fine'early:melonsfrom our Truck Fanners' Special and sell at $300 or over per car in ,New York,

a .is;it not more.remunerative than'using i ,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 a total of $300, you have double freight, amounting fo $220,

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

DOES IT PAY TO USE HIGH 'FERTILIZERS IN LARGE QUANTITIES? .

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