:r. Is the most effective compound yet discovered for destroying the insects infesting: the orange tree, and i is a sovereign remedy j

'.. E: for-the various forms of funglon trees and plants. Being free from substances of acaustic, corrosive or poisonous nature, it can ,

,. be.handled with perfectsafety to the person, and applied to the trees afany stage of growth without injury. *

This insecticide has been used Tby some of me largest orange growers in the State during the past two years,. and has >riven :

> perfect satisfaction. :References furnished application.

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

the Rust Mite twice a month through the season. Where labor constitutes the pnncipaiitem of expense in spraying trees it is better

and 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

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

mo Other Preparation of Snlphur. If used in this manner it will,also kill the other insects that may be moving on the trees.

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

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 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 ofmoisture
it is of great values 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.
monials or 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; $.1 ; per ton dried and unground, $0.50 ; 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 for all kinds of fruit trees. It is good for strawberries and all kinds
of vegetables. :*.

same eminent chemist gives a further analysis of the solubility of this phosphate in Citrate of Ammonia, which is about the samo strength as rain water,
as follows :
."Two Analysis-one giving 48 per cent. soluble in Citrate of Ammonia, the other giving 51.40 per cent. soluble in Citrate of Ammonia, an average of 49.70 per
cent of Bone Phosphate of Lime, the equivalent of 22.03 per cent. of Phosphoric Acid soluble in Citrate of Ammonia."
The greatest amount of available Phosphoric Acid m any of the high grade commercial fertilizers is 6 to 9 per cent.
