,. The Belleview Phosphate is the'cheapest fertilizer ever offered because it is the best. ''It contains'at least three timeS more available plant food than canbe: '
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 '
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.testimonials
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 : :
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. .
Fifty pounds for a full bearing tree is a sufficient quantity to use, and less amounts according to size of tree. /I' _
It is good for cotton. It is good for all kinds of grain. It is good for all grasses. It is.good,for all.kinds of fruit trees.' It is good for strawberries and all kinds
