Spraying for insects and fungus diseases is one of the secrets of successful fruit growing.Deleware Farm and Home.




Which by feeding on the oil of the petals and stamins of the bloom, causes them to drop and the fruit to wither and die.

It will kill the Rust Mites, which have made more than one-half the oranges of the crop of 1892 rusty. It will improve the quality and appearance of the oranges,
making the product of pine lands fully equal to that of the best hammock, without injury to its carrying qualities. It will destroy the Spider (Six: Spotted Mites). It
will kill the oving Scale Insect. It will destroy the Worm which attacks the fibrous roots, causing the root knot of the peach, blight of the pineapple, blight of the
tomato and( the foot rot of the orange.
It will destroy the fungus and lichen growth,giving the trees a healthy appearance.It .
will, as Mr. Axline (Axline & Markly, Cincinnati,) says, return you ten dollars for every one that it will cost.
Spray when the trees are in bloom and repeat as often as once each month during the season. For root diseases saturate the ground:; poas; to wet the root Use
one quart to three pints in fifty gallons of water.
SPECIAL.-On the first of January, 1893 the price will be reduced from 30 to 20 per cent. on the gallon for barrels and half barrels.

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 f 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 .

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

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 of 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 fertilizer 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

giving the very highest tests and valuations. Bringing their goods down in large quantities via schooner, and at reduced freight rates, and handling

them 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 rlo business at a profit, as they are branching -

out into Southern, Eastern and Northern territory and increasing their business to a wonderful extent, they intend giving Florida bUyers all -the

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

$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 never
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 business It
being attempted for the first time by this enterprising company as a trial and as an advertisement.
