Is the most effective compound vet discovered frr destroying the insects infesting the orange tree and is a sovereign remedyfor

the various forms of fungi on trees and plants. Bern 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 by some of the largest :orange growers in the State during the past two years, and has given

oerfect satisfaction. References furnished on application.FOR .

RUST MITE USE ONE OUART TO FIFTY GALLONS OF WATFR. 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 spravine 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 t the solution should not happen to touch them. In using the Insecticide at this strength it will save

three or 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 marner it will also kill the other insects that may be moving on the trees.

FOR RED SPIDER and SCALE, use one gallon to fiftv gallons of water. General directions for using sent on application.

PRICE 2c.() PER GALLON, in barrels. If there is no agent in vour vicinity, write for price delivered. .

"* "*. 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.. ** ',:* *.,.v. .

Analysis by eminent chemists show that it contains over 50 per cent of bone phosphate of lime that is available at once in soil water, the balance, 20 to 30 pe-
cent, becomes gradually available. Experts certify to its having value as plant food, green as it comes from the mine, of over $25 per ton as compared with commercial
acidulated fertilizers, and no danger in its use. The analysis of our Soft Phosphate, as given by Serge Malyvan, of Ocala, is as follows:

Insoluble Silicate and 6IPhO'phoricAcid.1 ......................... 27.63 I Oxide of Iron ..... .. I Magnesia and Soda .... 6.59
Carbonate Lime 4.56 1 Equivalent to Bone Phosphate Lime..6o.7o I| Aluminum 2.07 |( \ 6.55

He says your Soft Phosphate, referring to the Belleview Soft Phosphate, will be soluble, by gradual steep, under influence of rain water, provided it is per-
fectly burnt and pulverized in fine powder.
Serge :Maly van says that after analyzing samples of Soft Phosphate from different mines throughout the State, that the only soluble Soft Phosphate is con-
tained 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 cornit: has no equal.
The analysis of our Soft Phosphate shows that every element it contains is absolutely essential as plant food, and every intelligent man will see the importanceof
buying plant food at so little cost per ton. -
