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 trees

It 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.

.. The Paine Fertilizer Company, in order to increase extensively their business in the State of Florida, havo decided to make

V ,. enormous cuts on all FERTILIZERS, AND{ FERTILIZER MATERIALS. They have a large quantity of all fertilizer materials in stock at Jacksonville,

having laid in a full supply of Sulphate;, Potash, German Kainit, Nitrate of Soda, Animal Bone, Blood and Bone Acid Phosphate, Dissolved Bone,

O. S. G. Lime, etc., of the very highest grade, in the very best mechanical condition. _

!, They commence their big cuts on fertiliser materials on December 15th, and these cuts will be.of such a large nature that it will practically

place their goods' beyond competition; as regards: prices. The quality of their materials is known too well to be of the very highest standing.and

r giving the very highest tests and valuation\ .' Bringing their goods down in large quantities via schooner, and at reduced freight rates, and handlingthem

l practically without any costs for drayage, and their storage facilities being of such an excellent nature, having both water facilities and a private "

? track connected with all the railroads, they are prepared to name prices at which others could not possibly do business at a profit, as they are branching

J:t out into Southern, Eastern and Northern territory and increasing their business to a wonderful extent, they intend giving Florida buyers all the

f benefits of greatly reduced prices and low purchases,they having contracted for the bulk of their goods last spring when the market ranged from

I $1 to 2.50 per ton less than the present quotations.

,' Remember these cuts commence December 15th and may stop at any time therefore parties wishing to buy at cut rates should send In their inquiries at once. They will DeTer
f' again be able to buy Fertilizers at these exceedingly low prices unless this company should again take a notion to cut the prices a thing which Is seldom done in fertilizer bus1ne .Ittewing
I attempted for the first time by this nUrpriiing company as a trial and as an advertisement.

Half of the entire receipts in New' York of California fruits are shipped direct to and sold by me at auction. Results

have proved that the middle-men is a useless expense to the grower, who can save.and make money by consigning directto

to give the most intelligent and best possible care to all consignments.
