To the Orange Growers and Market Gardeners of Florida: m

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.


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 a value as plant food. green as it comes from the mine, of over $23 per ton as compared with commercial -

acidulated fertilizers, and no danger in its use. The analysis of our Soft-Pllosphate, as given by Serge Malyvan, of Ocala, is as follows:

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 Malyvan 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 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.
