Numerous tests have conclusively demonstrated that the COCCIDICIDE is fatal to the aleyrodes(white fly) in all of its stages of development. It can, how-
ever,be more effectively reached while in the egg,larva and pupa states. It is now in those states, but will commence hatching the fly about the middle of June.

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 hare 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(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 an4made: large sums of
money out of their crops the past year. Messrs. G: W.Bigelow and N.J.AnderSon,0 iBushneU Fla..started their crops of Watermelons into market the latter part of May.
Ur.BIGELOW sold two cars in New York through Sgobe1&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. Write for full 1infonnation"regarding our different brands of SpecMMbrtures

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 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; info 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 to $220,

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