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 Tby some of the largest orange growers In the state durino- the.past two years, and has riven

perfect satisfaction. References furnished on application. 0 .

FOR RUST MITE USE'ONE QUART TO FIFTY GALLONS OF WATER. \When used at this strength the trees should be sprayed

for the Rust Mite twice a montH through the season. Where labor constitutes the principal item,of expense in spraying trees it is better

aid'cheaper to use the Insecticide mil,strength, viz.: fine.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 t to touch,thepi. in using the Insecticide at this strength it will save

I FLORIDA ORANGE.S 'WANTED ENGLAND "

'
i .
As Florida oranges are now a staple fruit in the English markets, to obtain profitable prices, in the future it will only be necessary to export fi good quality and. "
\ bad oranges in good condition in the,foreign markets. .' "
Messrs. Smith & Crouch, one of the largest, best and most reliable fruit firms in England, say of the Liverpool market, that the demand is now so large that 5,000
, boxes, weekly, could be handled up to January 1st, with satisfactory results if the fruit is sound on arrival. ,
j As one of ,the largest exporters of apples in New York and as a-large importer of fruit from England,'my knowledgo. of the,carrying ability of steamers enable
f me. to select the best to ship by. .
Representing the best firms inLiverpool and Glasgow, and having,my own house in London, are also further reasons why shippers should send .
i In order to export oranges, shippers can consign their fruit to me to New Y6rk. If on examination it is in condition to forward, -I.will have the same paced on the .
i i beet and fastest steamer,and send a Bill_of lading as evidence of shipment to shipper. If not sound enough to export, I will either turn the lot over to any New York
! Arm the owner may designate, or sell it myself at auction. ,
' The best steamers land their cargoes in Liverpool l, so that, cable report of sales is received in New York in twelve days after sailing. A check covering about the
'' amount of the proceeds is then' sent on account to the shipper, by me. In twenty days from date of shipment from. Florida it is thus possible to have the proceeds in

\ be. hands of the shippers. .
Please note the following fads : :
t Large sizes of oranges, 1128-1268, bring as much as 150's'and 176's. No matter if oranges are shipped green and are sour, the earliest possible shipments pay
i Dead Green Spanish Oranges always bring the highest prices, being the only kind in the market. Oranges must not be shipped from New York later than December...
; 2. There'is no demand after the holidays until March 1st. ; 1
( Advances of 75 cents per box on your fruit will be made to such shippers as need money, and.such are authorized to draw on me with Bills of Lading attached..
Farther. particulars and stencils will be furnished by .

: \: BELLEVIEW PHOSPHATE CO.




: N N-AdI'D PHOSPHATE. : FERTILIZER.' .


'
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 for one-fourth the :price. .
We have the most complete plant in the State for cal, ining 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 I it is of great value as a mulchant. Itis worth double the price it is sold at for this purpose alone. Hundreds have used it, and they all give glowing testimonials
.I 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 iti; 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 fiso, and less amounts according to size of tree. .
It f 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 ia good for strawberries and all kinds.-
j .I vegetables. .
Send all orders, and apply for any further information as to freights. eta; to T. D. GIBBENS,

He also says: "Your phosphate (referring to the Belleview Soft Phosphate)will be soluble by gradual steep under the influence of rain water, provided perfectlyburnt : 'J
and pulverized in fine powder." ,'
The same eminent chemist gives a further analysis of the solubility of this phosphate in Citrate of Ammonia, which is about the same strength rain water, ,

, M. follows : .
, "Two Analy&b-'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
eat of BoDe Phosphate of Lime, the equivalent of 22.66 per cent. of Phosphoric Acid soluble in Citrate of Ammonia." .
The greatest aniotrnt of available; Phosphoric Acid in any of the high grade. commercial fertilizers is 6 to 9 per cent
