REASONS FOR SPRAYING TREES

It will destroy the SPIDER which is causing the fruit and leaves to drop and

in many cases killing the limbs. -

It will kill the MOVING SCALE. This is the hatching period and now is the time to spray.It i

will destroy the RUST MITE, of which Hubbard found 60,000 on a single leaf, thereby saving the cost ,of feeding such an enor-

mous mass of insect life, and by their destruction secure bright fruit. ':',.

It will not only prevent the oranges from rusting, but give them a bright, sparkling color that can be obtained in no other.way. -::*

-It will cure FOOT 'KOT aj event infection and spreading. -

It will destroy FlmC lBpMPGBOWTH, giving the trees a healthy appearance.It .

will, as Mr.ATlinja n llpPKarkely, Cincinnati) says, return you ten dollars for every one that it will cost. .

APPLICATIONS MUST BE THOROUGH AND AS OFTEN AS ONCE A MONTH.

':: SULPHUR SOLUTION
'" .

-r (I1 SECTICII>E)

Is th t most effective compound yet discovered for destroying the insects infesting the orange tree, and is a sovereign

remedy foi the various forms of fungi on trees and plants. Being free from all substances of a caustic, corrosive or pois-

onous nat.ui e, it can be handled with perfect safety to the person, and applied to the trees at any stage 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 perfect satisfaction. References furnished on application.For ..

Rust Mite use one, quart to fifty gallons of water. When used at this strength the trees should be sprayed'forthe

Rust Mite twice a month through the season. Where labor constitutes the principal item of expense in spraying treesit

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.

THE FLORIDA DISPATCH, FARMER AND FRUIT-GROWER. [MAY 26,1892



Th e Bel1e'Vie 1.\tT-iTl-I"t"'Ig COxn.pan.-y'S Greetin..g.


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.
'
THE BELtEVIEW MINING COMPANY OFFER THEIR BURNT AND GROUND SOFT PHOSPHATE.

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

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:

Insoluble Silicate and Sand....... .....18.76 I Phosphoric Acid...................... .... .. 1770 I I Oxide of Iron ... .. .................. ........ 74 | Magnesia and Soda ......... ..... .... 6.59
Carbonate Ume.................. .. ....... 4.561 I Equivalent to Bone Phosphate Lime..39.00 I Aluminum .. .. ............. ........... 2.07 |I Moisture......... .... ..... .. .............. 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 Malyvan 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. "
