;for the various forms of fungi on trees and plants. Being free from all substances of a caustic, corrosive or poisonous nature, it can

be handled with perfect safety to the person, and applied to the trees at any stage of growth without injury. :

This insecticide has been used Jbv some of 'the largest orange growers in the state during the past two years, and has given .

a perfect, satisfaction. References furnIshed on application. ,

moisture, it is.of great value as a mulchant. It is worth dQuble the price it is sold at for this purpose alone. Hundreds have used it, and they all give glowing testimonials -

We want every orange grower and farmer to try it, and for the next few weeks offer it at the following extremely: low prices, at the mines : .
Per ion, undried in bulk,"$5:; per ton dried and unground $6.50 ; per ton dried and pulverized, bulk, $7.50 ; sacked, $1 extra. Special prices in round lots. .
