Is the most effective compound vet discovered for destroying the insects infesting the orange tree, and is sovereign remedyfor .

f the various forms of fund on trees and plants. Being; free from all substances of a caustic, corrosive or poisonous nature it can j. ;

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 rowers in the State durino- the past two years, and has riven

oerfect 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 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

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 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) 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 rallons of water. General directions for usinr sent on application.

To the Orange Growers and Market Gardeners of Florida:

We produce the Leading Phosphate of the world. It is the cheapest. It is the best. It is a quick, vigorous fertilizer. It increases the crops.

Serge Maly van says that after analyzing samples of Soft Phosphate from different mines throughout the State, that the only soluble Soft Phosphate is contained -
in-an area of about six miles at and around Belleview.

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

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, 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 of apples in NbY6rk and as a large importer or fruit from England, my knowledge the carrying ability of steamers enablesme
to select the best to ship} by.
Representing the best tirms in Liverpool and Glasgow, and having my own house ill London, are also further reasons why shippers should send through ute.
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
'>est and fastest steamer,and send_:1' Dill of Lading as evidence of shipment to shipper. If not sound enough to export, I will eitJter turn the lot over to any New York
f fi '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 New York in twelve days after sailing. A check covering about thea
( .aunt of the proceeds is then sent on account to the shipper, by me. In twenty days from the hands of the .
Please note the following facts : -
large sizes of oranges, 112's-12G's, bring as much as 150.8 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
,' 1st. There is no demand after the holidays until March 1st. o" .
Advances of 75c. per l 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 ,
