SULPHUR SOLUTION

o INSECTICIDE .
'r ( ),

:' 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 stare of growth without injury. '
This insecticide has been used by some of the largest; orange growers i in the State during the past two years, and has wen

-perfect., satisfaction References furnished on application. '

FOR RUST,MITE, USE ONE OUART TO FIFTY GALLONS OF WATER. When used at this strength the trees should be sprayedfor
the Rust Mite twice a month 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 to 50 gallons of water, as the fumes From the Insecticide 4
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 i if used in this manner it will also kill the other insects that may be moving on the trees. ,

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

!'o Orange Growers and Farmers : 'I '

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 bt
found, in any commercial acidulated fertilizer, and is sold for one-fourth the :price. .T4
We have the most complete plant in the State for calcining and pulverizing the phosphate. .fI, "
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 '
.mohture, 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 : .....}'I
