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 j on
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, 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.

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 andmade large sums of
money out of their crops the past year. Messrs. G.W. Bigelow and N.J.Anderson,o iBushnell,Fla.,started their crops of Watermelons into market the latter part of May.
Mr.BIOELOW sold 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
$500 and other cars at fancy prices. No Brand of Fertilizer has Realized One-Third as Good Results. Wnte for full information regarding our different brands of Spedal.Mixtures.

IF YOU CAN produce a car load of fine early melonsfroin| 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

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 carefuljy prepared, or adapted to the 'crop and soil
fortunate if they bring freight charges. Say; however, two later cars bring a total of $300, you have double. freight, amounting *to ,$220,

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

a By writing to us we can give you some valuable points on this subject and show you how to obtain remunerative crop s/

GENTLEMEN.-I have read with much interest Prof.Pratt's'analysis of your O. S. C.Lime,reported in the FARMER AND FRUIT GROWER of the 9th inst. purchased'two tons of you about three
months ago and sowed it broadcast over two acres of newly cleared up*>y-head land. I have now growing over 4,000 c cabbages 1,500 tomato plants,several hundred e jg plants,beets,lettuce, cauliflowerand
onions all doing remarkably well.;all of.which attribute to the use of your 0. S. 0. Lime. Less than four months ago this garden was a wet, swampy bay-head. I have four acres now to clear
