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

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

r 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 has

1 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

M: the Rust Mite twice a month through the season. Where labor constitutes the principal item of expense in spraying trees

r[, 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

\V will also kill the other insects that may be moving on the trees. .

t For Red Spider and Scale, use one gallon to fifty gallons of water. General l directions for using sent on application.

For the purpose of helping to better the interest of all concerned in the marketing the crop of Florida oranges, and creating some needed reforms in the present
system of distributing the crop, I have opened an office at No. {04) West Bay street, Jacksonville, Fla. (Transportation How), and also in the principal marketa of tub Eaat
4 and West at the addresses given below. .
I firmly believe that with many improvements on the present part of which are stated below, together with the management, as a business man I am
capable of giving to the details of this business, that the orange crop of Florida can be disposed of to bettter advantage than is the case at present.
Believing in the auction system I have arranged to have all shipments intrusted to my care sold at auction at each point I ship to. Each shipper's account sales
will be accompanied with a price catalogue showing the results made.
When shippers desire I will sell here (in Jacksonville, at auction or at private sale, as I may be directed. When shipping elsewhere, the'condition of the various
markets will be studied and the oranges sent to which ever point promises to pay the best prices. These will be ascertained by daily reports from Boston, New York,
Philadelphia and Chicago.All .
fruits for Western markets will be started to Chicago, and diverted by my representative there while in transit, to which over of the other Western points
promises better prices.
All shortages, after the fruit reaches Jacksonville, will be guaranteed by me. .,
Shippers' wishes as to destination of fruit will always be complied with.
Stencils furnished free of charge, but shippers having one bearing my name and stencil number, can use that part of the stencil, but not the part reading
"1'ow York."

By an arrangement with the railroad and transportation companies, all fruit bearing my name will come to Jacksonville, and sent to the best market from here,
solid carloads only being made up (Western J point, giving my shippers the benefit of the carload rate.
On receipt of the oranges here and on the same day a check for from 75 cents to $1.00 per box will go to each shiPICf.the amount of the advance being determined
by the quality of the fruit and the conditions of the various markets. shippers prefer, a draft can be drawn on the fruit is shipped, for 75 cents per box, the
draft to accompany the bill}I of lading. On receipt' of the oranges and after examination, showing the same to be of fair quality, I agree topay the same. I reserve- the
right to modify this matter of advances, on giving five days' notice.
Believing that it costs fruit shippers too much at to market their crop, and feeling that a fair 1 profit for me can be made at a lower rate of commission, I have E
fixed this at six per cent to cover all charges except weight and cartage, which shall be actual. A saving of over $140,000 yearly can thus be made to the orange
growers of Florida.
A most important reform I propose to carry out, I call your particular attention to: The value of a shipper's tyrand. A name once favorably established all our
markets is worth to each shipper and grower as much as a good reputation. Up to the present you are only known to our buyers by a stencil number-which Is an
injustice to you. Therefore,let every shipper put his own name on the ends of the boxes, and this, with the stencil number, will appear on the : from which our
buyers purchase the fruit, enabling each orange grower to establish his name and a reputation for his fruit-which once accomplished, will mean hider results for him, .
providing: ho packs his fruit carefully and well, and sends only a good quality. As a business man, dealing. largely with Spain and California, many shippers from which.
fruit sections have so established good name for their brand, as to make it possible for me very often to sell to the buyers on the well known merits of the brand without
seeing the fruit I firmly believe that the Florida orange growers' interests have. been seriously prejudiced in the past by simply) knowing a man and his fruit by his
stencil number-:-which is easily o 'Otton. This I propose to correct in the future, as stated above. ;
For stencils, shipping detail blanks and all further information, please call, when in Jacksonville or address
