FLORIDA ORANGES WANTED IN I ENGLAND.



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 good quality andland

oranges in good condition in the.foreign markets.
; Messrs. Smith !t 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. ,
As one of the largest exporters apples. in New York and as.a large importer of fruit from England, my knowledge of the carrying ability of steamers enablesme

to select the best to ship by.
Representing the best firms in Liverpool and Glasgow, and having my own house in London, are also further reasons why shippers should send through me.
In order to export oranges, shippers can consign their fruit to me to New York. If on examination it is in condition to forward, I will have the same'placed on the
best 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 .

firm the owner may designate, or sell.it myself at auction.The .
; best steamers land their cargoes Liverpool, so that a cable report of sales is received in New York in twelve days after sailing. A check covering aoout 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

the hands of the shippers.
Please note the following facts : .
Large sizes of oranges, ,I12's-126's, bring as much as 150's and 176's. No matter if oranges are shipped green and are sour, the earliest possible; shipment pay.
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

l,t. ,There is,no demand after the holidays until March 1st. I'
Advances of 75c., 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.
Further particulars and stencils will be furnished by. '

BELLEVIEW PHOSPHATE CO. -



NON-ACID PHOSPHATE FERTILIZER

ITo '

.
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 ,
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 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. t
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' III

of vegetables.
Send all orders, and apply for any.further information as to freights, etc., to T. D. GIBBENS, -
Secretary and Treasurer.

The same eminent chemist gives a further analysis of the solubility of this phosphate in. Citrate of Ammonia, which is about the same strength as rain water,

am follows .
: the other 51.40 cent soluble in Citrate of Ammonia, an average of 49.70 percent
