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

Th e Be11e-vie"V Mining Conpaii: r's Greeti11; :

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, rigorous fertilizer. It increases the crops.


Analysis by eminent chemists show that it contains over 50 per cent of bone phosphate of lime that is available at once in roil water, the balance, 20 to 30 pc-

cent, becomes gradually available. Experts certify to its:: having a value as plant food green as it cOllle from the mine of over S'.5 per ton as compared with com-

mercial acidulated fertilizers, and no danger in its use. The analysis i of our Soft Phosphate, as given by Serge Ialyvan, of Ocala, is as follows:

Insoluble Silicate! and Sand...... .. ..... .18.761 I Phosphoric 27.63 I I Oxide;of Iron ... .. ............... .. .. ........ .741 I I Magnesia and Soda 6.59
Carbonate Lime........................... 4.561| Equivalent to Bone Phosphate Lime .... ...60.70 | Aluminum | :\IOI tUrc 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 corn it 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. .

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 New York and as a large importer or 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 h ,ring 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 ill condition to forward, I will have the same.placed on the
best and fastest steamer,and Rend 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 York
fi m the owner may designate, or sell it myself at auction.
The best steamers land their cargoes in Liverpool l, so that a cable report of sales is received in New York in twelve days after sailing. A check covering about thea
mntof the proceeds is then sent on account to the shipper, by me. In twenty days from date of shipment from-Fiorida it is thus i 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 loO's; and 17Gs. 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 7<3c. 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 .
