Is the most effective compound yet discovered for destroying the insects infesting the orange tree, and_is a sovereign remedy

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 DV some of the largest orange growers in the Mate during the past two years, and has given

i perfect satisfaction. References furnished on application. ,

FOR RUST MITE, USE ONE QUART TO FIFTY GALLONS OF WATER. 'When used at t this strength !the trees should be sprayed

for the Rust Mite twice month through the season. Where labor constitutes the pnncIpalitem of expense} in spraying trees it is better:

apd, cheaper to use the Insecticide at full strength, viz.: One gallon of solution to 50 gallons of water, as the fumes From the !Insecticide

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

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

no Other Preparation of Sulphur. if used in this manner it will also kill the other insects that mav be moving on the trees. .; -

FOR RED SPIDER and SCALE, use one gallon to fifty gallons of water. General directions for using'sent on application.. -

Tho Belleview Phosphate is the cheapest fertilizer ever offered because, it is the best. It contains at least three times more available" plant food than can be .
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. :
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.

menials of its value. Chemists and Scientists testify that it is the richest and safest fertilizer known.
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 : 1...
Per ton, 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.
