: 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 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 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 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.

TF 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

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 .

t 'fortunate if they bring freight charges. Say, however, two later cars, bring a total of '$300, you have double freight, amounting to $220; '
