a: Is ,the most 'effective compound yet discovered for destroying the insects infesting the orange tree, ana'is a sovereign remedy

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

,handled: with p rf safety to the person, and applied to the trees at any stage of growth without! injury. : .

This'insecticide. has been used oy'some of the largest orange growers in the tate during the past two years, and has givenperfect '

satisfaction. :References furnished

FOR 'RUST MITE, USE ONE QUART TO FIFTY GALLONS OF WATER. When used at this strength the trees should be sprayed ,, .

for the Rust litetwic, ,a month t through the.season Where labor constitutes the principal item of expense'in spraying trees it is better

and cheaper to use the Insecticide at full strength, viz.: One gallon of solution too gallons! of water, as the fumes From the Jnsecticide

will_kill the Rust Mite.even if the solution should not happen to touch them. In using the Insecticide at this strength it will save

.t three or four sprayings through the season, thereby reducing the cost from on -third to one-half. This is an Advantage Possessed_ by }

:'BO..Other,PreparafioH Sulphur.: If used in this manner}it will also kill the .other insects that may be moving on the trees.

found in any commercial acidulated fertilizer, and is sold for one-fourth the price. '" ;

,. We have the most complete plant in the State for calcining and pulverizing the phosphate. :';: 'i'
t It is the best because while its benefits are shown at once, it will outlast all others, and 'there is no possible danger in its use. It being a great absorbent:oft
moisture, it is of great value as a mulchant. It is worth double the price it is sold at for this purpose alone. Hundreds have used it, and they all give glowing testi-. :
