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

enormous cuts on nil 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 bo 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 do 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 fill }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 J2.50. per ton less than the present quotations. ,

Remember these cuts commence December 15th and may stop at any time,therefore.writes wishing' to buy at cut rates should tend in their inquiries at once. They will never
again be able to buy Fertilizers at thee exceedingly: prices unless this company should again take a notion to cut tho prices a thing which is seldom dono In fertilizer business,ft
being attempted for the first time by this enterprising company as a trial and as an advertisement.

.** For.tlio t purpose>se helping to better the interests of all concerned the marketing of the crop of Florida oranges, and creating some needed reforms in tho p -lent
system of distributing the crop, 1 have opciJud l an.oflice at No. 94 Wp8t Bay street Jacksonville. Fla. (Transportation How), and also in the principal markets of tne FASt
and "VVeet! at the addresses given below. .. .
I flrmly believe that with tnany improvements on the present part of which are,stated below, together with the management: as a. business man I am
.. capable giving to tho details of this business, that the orange crop of:Florida can 1 bo disposed of to bcttter 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 snippers desire I will sell here in Jacksonville, at auction or at private sale as I may be directed. When shipping elsewhere the condition of tho various .
markets will be studied and the oranges sent to which ever point promises to pay the best prices.) These will bo ascertained by daily reports from Boston; New York,
Philadelphia and Chicago. '
AH finite for Western markets will be started to Chicago, and diverted by my representative there while in transit, to which ever of the othqr: Western points
promises better prices. < '. <
AH shortages, after tho fruit reaches Jacksonville, will be guaranteed by me. r .
Shlpl)>>cra' wishes as to destination of fruit will always be complied with. 4 V
". 1 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 tart reading
"New York.
By an arrangement with the railroad and transportation companies, all fruit bearing my name will come to J Jacksonville and sent to the best market from here ,
solid carloads only being made up for Western points giving my shippers the benefit of the carload rate. .. .
On receipt of trio' oranges here and on tho same day l a check for from 76 cents to %1,00 per box will go to each shipper, 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 bo drawn on me when the fruit is shipped) for 75) cents per box, tho
draft to accompany the bill lading. On receipt of the oranges and after examination, showing the same to be 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 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 weight and cartage, which snail be actual. A saving of over $140,000 yearly can thus bo mad to the orange
growers of Florida. }j tJ ?
A most important reform I propose: to carry out, I call your particular attention to: -Tho value of a shipper's 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 the present are only known to our buyers by a stencil number-which ia an
injustice to 'ou. 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 purchase the fruity enabling each orange grower to establish his name and a reputation for his fruit-which accomplished' will mean higher results for him,
providing he 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 cood name for their brand.!, as to make it possible for me very often to sell to tho buyers on tho well known! merits of the brand;iibout
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 fruit4tTy his-
stench number-which w 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 addressT 1

To the Orange Growers anti Market Gardeners of Florida : *.

We produce the Leading Phosphate of tho world. It is the cheapest. It is tho best. It is a quick, vigorous fertilizer. It increases tho crops.


Analysis by eminent chemists( show that it contains over 50 per cent.of bono phosphate of lime that is available at once In soil water, tho balance, 20 to,SO percent a

becomes gradually available. Experts certify to its having a value as plant food, green as it comes from the mine of over $25 per*ton as compared with. commercial *

acidulated fertilizer and no danger in its use. The analysis of our Soft Phosphate, as given by Serge Malyran, of Ocala, is as follows : f .
Insoluble Silicate and Sand...........IB. ] Phosphoric Add...............,. 37.63: \ Oxide of Iron .. .. .74 Magnesia and Soda ....... .... 6.59 '

lie says your Soft Phosphate, referring to tho Bclleview Soft Phosphate, will be soluble by gradual steep, under Influence f of rain ,,water provided is per
fectly burnt and pulverized *$ ;* ,
Serge Halyvan Bays that after analyzing samples of Soft Phosphate from different mines throughout the State that the only soluble. Soft Phosyhato contained *
in an area of about six miles at and around Delloview. ? f ,
The Belleview Soft Phosphate is especially good for peach, peurand orange trees, grape vines and strawberries, and for cotton and corn it has no eqq l. el
Tho analysis of our Soft Phosphate shows that every element it contains is absolutely essential as plant food, and every intelligent man will see the importance '
of buying plant food at so little cost per ton. "*. '
