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 : -I
!* -;j, 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, '

r But is always uniform in strength and can be depended on to accomplish the purpose for which it was made. It can be sprayed[on .

' the trees, at any stage growth, without injury 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. R
: 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. .:{tt!" -j

THEIR itLltBRATItD Brand of TRUCK FARMltRS' SPECIAL produced the first best crop of the year and the patrons of this brand have been very successful.and made large sums of
money out of their crops the past year. Messrs. G. W; Bigelow and.N.T. Anderson of Bushnell, Fla.. started their crops of Watermelons into market, the latter part of May.
Mr.BIGELow sold two cars in New York, through W obel Sc 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.
.$500,and othcars fancy prices. No'Brand or Fertilizer has Realized One-Third as',Good ,Results. Write for full information regarding,our different brands of Special Mixtures.. .:

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 J

is'it not more remunerative. than using slower and cheaper fertilizers ? Let us figure : A car of early melons that cut well will bring ;

in New York at least: $300. Deduct $140, (freight,. $110; commission, $30;) and you will get $160 net proceeds. But if you use a fertilizer

ttat is not carefully; prepared or adapted to the crop and soil requirements of the State 97011 get your melons into a late market.and arefortunate

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

and,. 'commission."$30, l leaving only $50 as your net proceeds.-OBSERVE THE DIFFERENCE! ; '. f "

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