malting the product of pine lands fully equal to that of the best hammock, without injury to its carrying;qualities. It will destroy the Spider (Six Spotted Mites). It .
will kill the oving Scale Insect. It will destroy the Worm which attacks the fibrous roots, causing the root knot of the peach, blight of the pineapple, blight of the
tomato and the foot rot of the orange.It .
will destroy the fungus and lichen growth,giving the trees a healthy appearance.
It will, as Mr. Axlino (Axlino & Markly Cincinnati,) gays, return you ten dollars for every one that it will cost. .
Spray when the trees are in bloom and repeat as often as once each month during the season. For root diseases saturate tho ground so as to wet the root, Use l

the most effective compound yet discovered for destroying the insects infesting the orange tree, and is a svcref) *

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

onous nature, it can be handled with perfect safety to the person, and applied to the trees at any stage of growth withtet ,4;

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

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 &r t

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

It is better and cheaper to use the Insecticide at full strength, viz.: One gallon: of solution to 50 gallons of water, M 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 .OM-

third to one-half.: This is an Advantage Possessed by no Other )'Preparation of Sulphur. If used in this manner It

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

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

; 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 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 be of the very highest standing and

giving the very 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 arc prepared to name prices at which others could not possibly do business at a profit, as they are branch*

lug out into Southern, Eastern and Northern territory and increasing their business to a wonderful extent, they intend giving Florida buyers oIl UjgSenBfltS ,

a; of greatly reduced prices and low purchases, they having contracted for the bulk of their goods last spring when the market ranged from

"|1 to $2.50 per ton less than the present quotations. '

Remember theso cuts commence December 15th and may stop at any time,therefore parties wishing to buy at cut rates should send in their inquiries at once. They: will never
tftln be ablo to buy' these exceedingly: low prices unles this company should again take a notion to cut the prices,a thing which is seldom done in fertilizer business,it
twlnjr attempted. for the Orstzetimo by this enterprising company as a trial and as an IW"'crtI8cment.Addrcu *

For tho purpose helping to better tho interests of all concerned in the marketing of tho crop of Florida oranges, and creating some needed reforms in the'preeeMsystem
of distnbuting the crop, I have opened an office at No. {m) West Bay street, Jacksonville Fla: (Transportation How), and also in tho principal markets of the Eaetnnd
West at the addresses given below. .
I firmly: believe that with many improvements on tho present system part of which are stAted below} together with the management, as a business man I am
capable giving to the details of this business, that the orange crop 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 shippers account 8&tal..
will be accompanied with Yrrico catalogue showing the results made "
When strippers} 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 varlo e
markets will be studied and tho 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 Cliicai o. '
All 1 fruits Western markets will be started to Chicago, and diverted by .my representative there while in transit, to which over of the other Western potato g
''s 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 leaving one bearing> my name and stencil number, can use that part of tho 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 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 the oranges were and on the same day a check for from 75 cents to $1.00 per box will go to each shipper, the amount of the advance being determinedby
the quality: of the fruit and the conditions'of various markets. shippers prefer, a draft can be drawn on me when the fruit is shipped, for 75 cents per box, the M
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 ray the came. I reserve the :
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 mo 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 bo 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 brand. A name once favorably established in all our
markets is worth to each shipper and grower much as a good reputation. Up to the present are only known to our buyers by a stencil number-which 1 Is an y
Therefore, let every shipper put his own name on tho ends of the boxes, and this, with tho stencil number, will appear? on the catalogue from which ourbuyerspurchaso
the fruit, enabling each omnge grower to establish his ammo and a reputation for his Cmit-which once accomplished, will mean higher results for him, .!*.
providing he packs his fruit carefully and well, and sends only a good quaUty. A8 a business JUan, denting largely with Spain and California, many shippers from which f
Cmit sections have 80 established agood name for their brand, as to make it'possible for me very often to sell to the buyers on the wen known merits or the brand without q
seeing tho 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-bli
stenCil number-which is easily forgotten. This I propose to correct in tho future, as stated above. ke
For stencils, shipping detail blanks and all further information, please call, when in Jacksonville or address

To the Orange Growers and Market Gardeners of Florida:

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

Analysis by eminent chemists show that it contains over 50 per cent of bone phosphate of lime that is available at onco in soil water, the balance, 20 to 80 percent

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 fertiliser, and no danger in its use. The analysis of our Soft Phosphate, as given by Serge Malyvan, of Ocala, Is as follows :
