For the purpose of helping to better tho Interests of all concerned in the marketing of the crop of Florida oranges, and creating some needed reforms in the present

system of distnbuting tho crop,! have opened an office at No. W West Bay street, Jacksonville. (Transportation plow), and also in the principal markets of tho East

and,., West at tho addresses given below' .
I firmly believe that with many: improvements oji the present system, 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 pre Bent. .
Believing in the auction system I have arranged to have shipments intrusted to my care sold at auction at each point I ship to. Each shipper's account oalea
will be accompanied with a price catalogue showing the results made. ;f
-When chippere desire I will sell hero in Jacksonville, at auction or at private sale, as I may be directed. When shipping elsewhere, the condition of tho various
markets wilt be studied and the oranges sent to which ever point promises to pay tho best prices. These will bo 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 ever of tho other Western points
promises better prices.

All shortages, alter 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 tho part reading
!New York." .

By an arrangement with the railroad and transportation companies, all fruit bearing my name will como to Jacksonville, and sent to tho best market from here,
solid carloads only being made up for Western points, giving my shippers the benefit of tho carload rate.
On receipt of tho oranges hero and on the same day a check for from 75 cents to $1.00 r box will go to each shipper, the amount of the advance,being determined
by the quality of the fruit and tho conditions of tho various markets If shippers prefer, a draft can bo drawn on me when the fruit is shipped, for 75 cents per box, the
draft' to accompany the bill lading On receipt of the oranges and after examination, showing the same to bo of fair quality, I agree to pay tho same. I reserve tho
right to modify this matter of advances, on giving five days' notice.
Believing that it costs fruit shippers! too much at present to market their and feeling that a fair profit for me can be made at lower rate of commission, I have

. fixed this at", six per cent. to cover all charges except freight and cartage, crop\\iall be actual. A saving of over 140,000 yearly can thus bo made to the orango
growers of I lorula.
A most important reform I propose to carry out, I call your particular attention to: The value of a shi brand. A namo once favorably established all our w
-markets is worth to catch 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 F
'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 catalogue from which our
buyers purcliaws} the fruit, enabling each orange grower to establish his name and a reputation for his fruit-which once accomplished, will mean higher results for him,
providing be 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 a good namo for their brand, as to make it possible for me very often to sell to the buyers on tho well known merits of tho brand without
pceinp tho fruit I firmly believe that the Florida orange growers' interests have been seriously prejudiced in tho past by simply knowing a man and his fruit by hisstencil
1 mimber>-whieh is easily forgotten. This I propose to correct In the future, as stated above.
L For stencils, shipping detail blanks and all further information, please call, when in Jacksonville or add re-
