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

the various forms of funei on trees and plants. Being 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

Derfect satisfaction. References furnished on application.FOR .

RUST MITE USE ONE OUARMO FIFTY GALLONS OF WATER. When used at this strength the trees should be sprayedfor

the Rust Mite twice a 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 four 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 gallons of water. General directions for using sent on application.

PRICE 20c. PER GALLON, in barrels. If there is no agent in your vicinity, write for price delivered.

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
t cent, becomes gradually available. Experts certify to its having a value as plant food, green as it comes from the mine, of over $2o per ton as compared with co'i
mercial acidulated fertilizers, and no danger in its use. The analysis of our Soft Phosphate, as given by Serge Malyvan, of Ocala, is as follows:

Carbonate Lime.. 4-561| Equivalent to Bone Phosphate Lime.... ....27.631| Aluminum .. 2.07Ioisture.I .......... ......... .............. 6]

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
fectly burnt and pulverized in fine powder.
Serge Malyvan says that after analyzing samples of Soft Phosphate from different mines throughout the State, that the only soluble Soft Phosphate is co
mined 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 corn it has no equal.
The analysis of our Soft Phosphate shows that every element it contains i is absolutely essential as plant food, and every intelligent man will see the importan
