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

remedy f 01 the various forms of fungi 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 stage of growth without

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 for

the 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 .

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. .. j


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 $'2o 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 Sand....... ......18.761 I Phosphoric Acid.......... ........ .. ..... .' 1770 I I Oxide;of Iron .. .. ... ...... ...... ........ .74 I Magnesia and Soda .. ......... ..... ..... 6.59
Carbonate Lime.......... .......... ....... ..561| 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 bleep, 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.
