handled with perfect safety to the person and apolied to the trees at any stage of growth without injury.

This insecticide has been used by some of the largest orange growers in the State during the past two years, and has wenoerfect

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 sprayed

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

will kill the Rust Mite even if the solution should not happen to touch them. )In using the Insecticide this strenplh it will save

three or four sprayings through{ the season, thereby reducing{! the cost from one-third to onehalf.Tin's is an Advantage Possessed by

no Other Preparation of Sulphur. 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 pallons of water. General directions for usinp- sent on application.

Serge Malyvan says that after analyzing samples of Soft Phosphate from different mines throughout the State, that the only soluble Soft Phosphate is con-

The Belleview Soft Phosphate is especially good for peach, pear and orange trees, grape vines and strawberries. and for cotton and corn it has no equal.

GEO. WILSON, 5O West Bay Street, Jacksonville Fla.


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.
Messrs. Smith &Crouch, one of the largest, best and most reliable fruit firms in England, sat 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 of 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 cah 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 Yorkfi
m 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
a <,unt 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, 112'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.
!=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 .
