:: .i> SULPHUR SOLUTION ..: /\

'' i.i."r': (INSECTICIDET";

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

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

onous nature, it can be handled with perfect safety to the person, and applied to the trees at any stage of growth without i

Injury: "

r 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.Price .

vs. THEORY.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 placed '
upon-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 K
to market the first and finest vegetables,always obtaining the cream of the high prices. This summer Mr. G. W. BlgeIO\V10f Bushnell, Fla...,who used ten tons of our Truck Farmer
Special,"sent to this and to New York and Boston markets the first ripe watermelons of the season, three of these at between$3'>and $375 each, whereas later melons scarcely k
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
best known growers in the State does not find the summer too hot to praise our fertilizers. .
Read what Robt. C. May,of Rockledge,Ridian Ricer,says under date of September,1892: ';
The Paint Fertilizer Co.,Jacksonville, 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 heaviercrop
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
trees did not wilt and drop their fruit as others did. My fruit is the prettiest I have tr had. Yours etc. ROBERT C. )IA Y.
Mr. J. M. Watrous. 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
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 $350.00:) for ten tons of our Truck Farmers'Special without any
discounts. This we can prove at any time,or forfeit$.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 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 the various agricultural chemicals used in the formulas for our Special brands are the results of numerous exhaustive tests made with Florida crdps on Florida
oils during the past fifteen years,and earn 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. w:


ia the best known regulator of soils,a splendid insecticide and general lime fertilizer,containing sulphur and sulphate of ammonia. Price,$7.00 per ton.
During the past spring we placed on the market a brand of Ground Stock Food composed of selected grains, finely ground,such as wo have used for years past with marked success
both in Charleston,8. C.,and Jacksonville. We have placed this article on the market at a low price In order to give our customers the benefit of this excellent food,at a very low price.
