For the purpose of helping to better tho interests of all concerned t in tho marketing of the crop of Florida oranges, and creating some eyetem of distnbuting tho crop, I have opened an office at No. 04 West Bay street, Jacksonville, Fla. (Transportation itow), and also in tho principal kHa of the East
and Wctt at the addresses given below.I .

firmly believe that with many improvement on the present system' part of which are etated! t below, togetber with tho management, aa a busincfi man I am
capable of giving to the details of this business, that the orange crop of Florida can be disposed of to tottter advantage than la tho case at present. '
Relieving in the auction Byfc1e.ni. I have) arranged to have all shipment 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 hero in Jacksonville, at auction or at private sale, as I may be directed. When shipping elsewhere, tho condition of tho various
markets will be studied and the oranges nt 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 Wet-tern markets will be started to Chicago, and diverted by my representative there while in transit, to which ever of the other Western point
promises better prices.
All shortages, after tho 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 laving one bearing my name and stencil number, can use that part of the stencil, but not the part reading
'New York."

By an arrangement with tho railroad and transportation companies, all fruit bearing my name will come to Jacksonville, and sent to tho 1 beet market from here,
solid carloads only being made up for Western points, giving my shippers the benefit of the carload rate.
On receipt of the oranges hero and on the Mme day a check for from 76 cents to $1.00 per box will go to each shipper the amount or the advance being determined
by the quality or the fruit and the conditions'of the various markets. Ir shippers prefer, a draft. can be drawn on me when the fruit Is shipped, for 73 cents per hex, the,
draft to accompany the bill of lading. On receipt: oftl1o oranges and after examination, showing the carne to be or fair quality, I agree to pay.tho .me. I reserve tht.
right to modify this matter of advances, on giving five days' notice.
Believing that it costa fruit shippers too much at present to market their crop and feeling that a(fair profit for me can be made at a lower rate of commission, I have
fixed this at six per cent to cover all charges except freight and cartage, which snail 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 shi brand. A name once favorably established in all our
markets is worth to each shipper and grower as much as a good reputation. Up to tho present 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 tats, with the stencil number, will appear on tho catalogue from which our
buyers pure l In.*' the fruit, enabling each orange grower to establish his name and a reputation for his fmit-which once accompliShed, will mean higher results for him,
providing he packs his fruit refuUy and well, and sends only a good quality. Aft a busing m1n, dealing largely with Spain and California, many slatppens from which
fruit sections m\"CO established agox1 name for their brand, as to make it 11OS8ibte for mo very often to sell to the buyers on the well known merits otl1o brand without
seeing the froit. I firmly believe dint the Florida orange growcrs' interests have been seriously prejudiced In the past by simply knowing a mm and his fruit by hisstencil
number-which is easily forcotton. 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
