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

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

nature, it can be handled with perfect safety to the person, and applied to the trees at any stage of growth without


This insecticide has been used by some of the largest orange growers in the State during the past two years, and hat

given perfect satisfaction. I 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

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

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 the no Other Preparation of Sulphur. If used in this manner it

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

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

Price 20c. Per Gallon, in barrels. If there is no agent in your vicinity, write for price delivered.

The 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 largo quantity of all fertilizer materials in stock at Jacksonville

having laid in a full supply of Sulphate$ of Potash, German 1 vain: it, Nitrate of Soda, Animal Bone, Blood and Bone, Acid Phosphate, Dissolved Bono

0. 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 largo nature that it will practically

placo 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 l 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 lailroadx, they are prepared to name prices at which others could not possibly do business at a profit, as they arc branch.

ing out into Southern, Eastern: and Northern territory and increasing their business to a wonderful extent, they intend giving Florida buyers flll till

benefits of greatly reduced prices and low purchases: they having contracted for the bulk of their goods last spring when the market ranged frog

$1 to .*'..60 per ton less than the present quotations.

m Remember them cut commence Dot-ember IMh and may atop at any time,therefore parties trishltur to buy at cut rates should send In their Inquiries at once. They:will Barer

---- -- -- -- ----------- --




For the purpose! of helping to better the interests of all concerned in the marketing of the crop of Florida oranges and creating tomo needed reforms In tho preSent
system of distributing, the cl'Op.ll1n"u opened an office at No. 04 West Kay street, Jacksonville: Flo. (Transportation How), and also in the lrlncil..alIDurk..ta of the East
and'tfit at the flddremfi liven tahtw.!
I firmly. believe that with many improvements on the present *}'stem l paint of which are stated below together with tho management, as a business man I am
capable giving to the detail of this bitumen1" that the orange crop of Florit'ta' can be disposed of to bettter advantage than is the case at present.
Believing.. in tho auction )'* I have arranged to have shipments intrusted to my care sold at auction at each {point>> 1 ship to. Each shipper's account Bales
will be atfoiiiptinicd, with a I price>> When shipper .ilealn! will sell hem in Jacksonville, at auction or at private sale, as I may be directed. When shipping elsewhere, the condition of the various
markets will be Hudiixl and the urangvu sent to which ever point promises to l pay the best prices. These will be ascertained by daily report from Boston, New York,
Philadelphia and Chi( go. ?.?<
Ail I fmlta for \\' % cm markets will be started to Chicago, and diverted by my representative there while in transit, to which ever of the other Western points
promises.. I tatter price 4
All BhortaiRV, after the fruit reaches Jacksonville, will be guaranteed by me. ...
Shll'i hI' Wished an to dertinntion of fruit will always be complied, with. .
Stencils furnished free of chcrg*, but shippers| having one bearing my name and stencil number, can use that part of the stencil, but not the part reading
'New York.
Bv an arrangement with the mil road and transportation companies, nil fruit bearing my name will come to Jacksonville, and sent to the best market from here,
solid carload only being made up for Western! taint, giving my shipjK'r the l benefit of the carload rate. ,
On receipt of the ontugrs' here and on the mints Clay a chirk for from 75 cents to $1.00 tier box wilt go to each shipper the amount of the advance being dcterrnlacd
by the quality of the fruit, and the conditions of. the various market If fihippera $prefer, draft. can be drawn on me when the fruit is shipped for 75 cents per box, the
draft to aat>mtany| the bill of lading. On. nxvipt of the orangvfi). .; and! after examination, showing the same to be of air quality, I agree to pay the same. I reserve the
right to modify thin matter of advance, on giving; five days' notice. fi
Believing, that it twta f.lit KliipnT8 too much at to market their crop, and feeling$ 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 shall bo actual. A saving of over $140,000 yearly can thus be made to the orange
growers of Florida
A most Important reform I propof to carry out, I call your particular attention to: The value of a idti pper's brand. A name: once favorably established in all out
markets Is worth to each phipper and grower OH much a* good reputation. Uj) to the 'present are only Known to our buyers: by a etencil number-which is aninjustice
to you. Therefore, let every hipi>er put his own name on the end of the boxes, and Mils, with the stencil number, will appear on the catalogue' from which our
buyers purchaPC the fruit, ennbUnJt'h onms.'U grower to cftahli8h his name and a reputation for his fruit-whidl once neeompitshed! will mean higher remIts for him,
providing he jacks his fruit l'8n.Cutly ani well, and sends only R trout quality. As A business man, dealing Inrly with Strain aUld California many shippers>> from which
fruit suctions! have 80 eatithlished 1 A :!)( l\1ne for their brand, M to muke It pos&lblo for me very often to sell to the buyers on the \Vcll known nwritd of time. brand without
Bceini the fruit. I firmly believe that the Florida orange growers intcrvt-U have been criously prejudiced in the itast; by simply knowing a man and his fruit by his
etcncil number-whielt. is easily foniotton. This I propose to correct in the future, as stated above. "
