:.. THE FLORIDA FARMER AND FRUIT GROWER (Florida Dispatch) was established twenty-seven years ago for the purpose of
: ,. ..
{ promoting Florida horticulture and agriculture along modern, scientific and practical lines.

THE :FLORIDA FARMER AND FRUIT-GROWER is edited and conducted exclusively by actual and experienced tillers of .the soil,

who live on the farm and practice what they preach. .

THE FLORIDA FARMER AND FRUIT GROWER has on its working staff some of the most distinguished agronomic authorities of

the State-two professors of, the State Experiment Station and the* agricultural agent of one of the chief lines of railway who is an experienced tobacco


THE FLORIDA FARMER AND FRUIT-GROWER has a trained corps of regular and occasional correspondents, chiefly representingthe

brightest body of producers in the world, the Florida orangegrowers.THE .

FLORIDA FARMER AND FRUIT-GROWER stands as the champion of conservative American soil-culture, opposed to the

credit and crop-lien systems; opposed to the single-crop idea for the average farmer. It advocates the production of home supplies to the greatest extent

compatible with that prime object of all good farming-the creation of a solid bank account.

THE FLORIDA FARMER AND FRUIT-GROWER, while not an "organ" for anyone except its readers and its owners, is the stead-

fast upholder of the Florida Fruit Exchange, the most cohesive and enduring organization of producers ever established in the United States.

THE FLORIDA FARMER AND FRUIT-GROWER devotes itself to the horticulture and agriculture of Florida, which has unique

needs and requirements, and for which Northern farm teachings are generally inapplicable and misleading.THE .

FLORIDA FARMER AND FRUIT-GROWER is emphatically the business farmer's paper. No other agricultural paper in the

State reaches so many farmers who conduct their business on successful plans; who make money by it, and have money to pay for what they want.

THE FLORIDA FARMER AND FRUIT-GROWER, for these reasons, is the best advertising medium in which to reach the successful

rural classes of the State. Our "cheap column" is watched by more country people than any other medium.IT .

PAYS TO SUBSCRIBE to the Florida Farmer and Fruit-Grower. Every attentive reader will gain by some one hint in the course of

a year many times the cost of subscription.IT .

PAYS TO ADVERTISE in the Florida Farmer and Fruit Grower. No man who desires to do business with the successful soil tillersof

Florida can afford to neglect the use of its columns.
