., To, Orange Growers and' Farmers :

. 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 can be
found in any commercial acidulated fertilizer, and is sold, r 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 of
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 ita 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. '
It is good for cotton.. It is good for all kinds of grain. It is good for all grasses. ,It is.good I for all kinds of fruit trees. Iffls good for strawberries and all kindsof ,
