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

remedy fbi the various forms bf 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 withoutinjury.

_ _
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; 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. .

Every exhaustive test made by the largest and best known truckers and fruit raisers In the State clearly demonstrated that the various brands of specially prepared fertilizers placedupon
the market by the Paine Fertilizer Co.,of Jacksonville,Fla., give a better and healthier growth and have decidedly superior productive qualities. Our customers each season send-
to market the first and finest vegetables,always obtaining the cream of the high prices. This summer Mr. O. W. Blgelow of Dushnell, Fla., who used ten tons of our Truck Farmers
Special"sent to this and to New York and Boston markets the first ripe watermelons or the season, three of these cars selling at between f t 5 and .:r.5 each, whereas later melons scarcely
brought freight. Almost every well-known paver In the State referred to these melons and spoke of the superior quality of our fertUJzers. We will further snow to any ODe calling at
our omce letters and account sales from New York and Boston commission houses stating that these melons were the finest ever received 150 early In the season. One of the largest md
best known growers in the State does not find the'summer too hot to praise our fertilizers. .

The Paine Fertilizer Co.,Jacfooiirillc[ Fla.:
DEAR SIRS--I applied ten tons of your Orange Food No. 1 to my older bearing trees last December; had but little rain until a few weeks ago. I'feel assured that I have a heavier
crop than ever before. Some of my trees are bending over with fruit so as require propping. My trees are now free from red spider and rust mite,and during the long drouth my
trees did not wilt and drop their fruit others did. My fruit is the prettiest I have ever had. Yours etc.. BOUEKT C.. MAY.
Mr. J. M. W atrou .of Tampa, Fla., has used o\'erro:: tons of our Special mixtures on his groves, and gardens near Tampa, with highly satisfactory results, exhaustive tests clearly
demonstrating that our brands gave greater production than any other fertilizers or combinations of agricultural chemicals. .

We have always been cutters in the market. Our business'-has increased enormously while others have fallen off as rapidly,our economical facilities for handling our goods making
it Impossible for others to compete with us in prices and our long experience in the fertilizer business enabling us to select only such goods as show the very highest analysis and best
mechanical condition.The .
combinations of tho various agricultural chemicals used In the formulas for our Special brands are the results of numerous exhaustive tests made with Florida crops on Florida y
soils during the past fifteen years and earh season we have increased the quality of our various brands regulating them so that each mixture would contain exactly what the crop for
which it was made required,and so that the Ingredients would become available at the proper time, thus enabling the farmer and fruit grower to raise larger crops with less uncertainty. tOUR
