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

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

:c: nature, 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 hat

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-

M third to one-half.: This is an Advantage Possessed by no Other Preparation of Sulphur. If used in this manner it

ti 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. ,

t. r "=I RACTTCE vs. THE 0 R V.

p. : 'Every exhaustive test made by the largest and best mown truckers and fruit raisers in the StAte clearly demonstrated that the various brands ot specially prepared fertilizers places
; ,upon the market by the Paine Fertilizer Co.,of Jacksonville,Fla.,gives better and healthier growth and have decidedly,superior productive qualities. Our customers each season! send!
to market the first and finest vegetables always obtainiMLthe cream of the high prices. This summer Mr. G. W Bigelow of Bushnell, Fla.J who used ten tons of our Truck Farmert .
', Special,"sent to this and to New York and Boston market*the first ripe watermelons of the season,three of these cars selling at between $325 and$375 each"whereas later melons scarcely",
brought freight. Almost every well-known paper in the State referred to these melons and spoke of the superior: quality of our fertilizers: We will further show to any one calling at
: our office letters and account sales from New York and Boston commission houses stating that these melons were the finest ever received so early in the season. One of the largest and
j hi best known growers in the State does not find the summer too hot to praise our fertilizers. .

, The Paine FcrtiUzcr Co.,Jacksonville Fla.f' .:- -
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 to require propping. My trees are now free from red spider and rust mite,and during the long drouth my
i'I' trees did not wilt and drop their fruits others did. l\Iyfrultfs the prettiest I have ever had. Yours etc., ROBERT C. MAY. )
-, )lr. J. M. Watrous.! of Tampa Fla.,has used over 200 tons of our Special mixtures on his groves and gardens near Tampa,with highly satisfactory'results,exhaustive tests clearly 1
"'- demonstrating that our brands gave greater production than any other fertilizers or combinations of agricultural chemicals. '
;None of the above parties are in any way connected with our company as agents or otherwise-Mr. Bigelow paying us $350.00 for ten tons of our Truck Farmers Special without any
r.. discounts. This we can prove at any time or forfeit$500. .
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 makingIt I
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- .,
r mechanical condition. *
s. 'The combinations of the various agricultural chemicals used In the formulas for our Special brands are the results of numerous exhaustive tests made with Florida crops on Florida
;,.: oils during the past fifteen years,aid 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.
