FLORIDA ORANGES WANTED IN 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 good quality and !-
land oranges in good condition in the foreign markets. s .
r Messrs. Smith & Crouch, one of the largest, best and most reliable fruit firms in England, say of the LiverpoolVnarket, that the demand is now so large that 5.000 )1
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 of apples in New York and as a large importer of fruit from England, my knowledge of the carrying ability of steamers enables ',
me 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 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 in Liverpool, so that a 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
the hands of the "
Please note the following facts : .

4 Large sizes of oranges, llS'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 shipments 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 '
1st. 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. .
t Further particulars and stencils will be furnished by '. '

"


NON-AQID PHOSPHATE FERTILIZER, :' ..
v yh

ITo .
I 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. .
i "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 its value. Chemists and Scientists testify that it is the richest and safest fertilizer known. .
Ii 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 : .
4 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 oftree. '
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 kindsof s'
vegetables. '

Send all orders,.and apply for'any further information as to freights, etc., to T. D. GIBBENS, .

He'also says : "Your phosphate (referring to the Belleview Soft Phosphate)will besolu'ble by gradual steep under the influence of rain water, provided perfectly,
burnt and pulverized in fine powder." i. .
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,

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 percent
of Bone Phosphate of Lime, the equivalent of 22.66 per cent. of Phosphoric Acid soluble in Citrate of Ammonia." ,
*The greatest amount of available Phosphoric Acid in any of the high grade commercial fertilizers is 6 to 9 per cent. .
