Is the 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 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 .

Read what Root. C. May,of Kockledge, Indian lllver,says under date of September 8,1S9' : j
The Paint Fertilizer Co.,Jacksonville, Fla.: \ I
DEAR SIRS-I applied ten tons of your Orange Food No. 1 to my older bearing trees last December; had but little ram 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 /
trees did not wilt and drop their fruit as others did. My fruit is the prettiest I have ever had. Yours etc., ROBERT C. MAY.
Mr. 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
'1demonstrating 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 330.00} 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 makingIt
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 crops on Florida
soils during the past fifteen years,and each season we have increased the quality of our vanous 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.


la the best known regulator of soils,a splendid insecticide and general lime fertilizer,containing sulphur and sulphate of ammonia. Price,$ During the past spring we placed on the market a brand of Ground Stock Food composed of selected grains finely ground,such as we have used for years past with marked success
