_ For the purpose of helping to better the interests of all concerned in the marketing of the crop of Florida oranges, and creating some needed reforms In the present
eystem distributing the crop, have opened an office at Xo. W West Bay street, Jacksonville, Flu. (Traiii-portatioii! Row), and also in the principal markets of tfio East:
and West! at the addresses given below.I .
firmly believe that with many improvements on the present system, I pa it of which arc stated l below, together with the management, as a business man i am
capable giving to the details of this business, that the orange crop of IIondacan IKJ dfcitoscd of to bettter advantage than i is the case at present.
Believing in the auction system I have arranged to have all shipments! intni ted to my care sold; at auction at each lint i I ship to. Each shipper's{ accountIcs
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 gale, as I may be din>ctl'it. When shipping elsewhere, the condition of the various
markets will be studied and the oranges gent to whichever point promises to pay the best prices. These will be certaineu by daily reports from Boston, New York,

}Philadelphia/:I and for Chicago.Western markets will be started to Chicago, and diverted by my representative there while in transit, to which ever of the other Western points

promises better prices.All .
shortages, after the fruit reaches Jacksonville, will be guaranteed h}. me.Shipjxjrs ,
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 the part reading ;
"I'ew York."
By an arrangement with the railroad and transportation companies, all fruit bearing my name will come to Jacksonville, and sent to the best; market from. here,
solid carloads only being made up Western i paints, giving my shippers] the benefit of the airload rate.
On receipt of the oranges hero 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 determined
by the quality of the fruit, and the conditions of the various markets. If shippers prefer, a draft can bo drawn on me when the fruit is shipped I. for 75 cents per box, the
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 1 pay> the same. 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, croPj mil be actual. A giving of over $140,000 }'cnrlya1l1 thus be made to the orange .
growers of Florida. ,
_ : A most important reform I propose to carry out, I roll your particular attention to : The value oC n shipl t is brand. A name once favorably established in aU our
markets i8 worth to each shipper and grower as much as n good reputntion Up to the pl'C1"Cllt von are only known to our hu\'el'8 by n stencil nnmhcr-whirh is an
injustice! to }'ou. Therefore, let every shipper put hiM own name on-the ends oC the boxes, and thi, with the stencil number, win appear on the catalogue from whtch our
buyers purchase the fruit enabling each orange" grower to establish his na1l10 and a reputation for hiM Cmit-which once acoomplisht'll, will mean higher re nlt for him,
pnoviding lie packs his fruit carefuly and well, anti tends only a (good qmllit As n lnisiness man, dl'ulinJt largely. with Spain nrul California, man)' shi'leis' from which
fruit. sections have IO:! cstahlhJhed 1\ good name for their brand, as to snake it p08Sihlo for me very often to sell to the buyers 011 the wept known merit or the brand w1thonteeewg
the fmit. I firmly believe that the Florida orange growers'; intone .try iiuve been seriously prejudiced in the l pa: t by simply knowing a JUun and his fruit by lips
etencll I number-which is easily forgotten., 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 a

a To the Orange Groicen and Market Gardeners of Florida :

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


Analysis by eminent chemists show that it contains over :50 per cent. of hone phosphate of lime that is available at once in sail water, the balance, 20 to 30 I percent

P becomes gradually available. Experts certify to its having a value as plant food. green as it comes from the mine, of over $2:?:i per ton as compared with com

mercial acidulated fertilizer, and no danger in its use. The analysis of our Soft Phosphate, as given by Serge Maly van, of Ocala, is as follows :

lie says your Soft Phosphate, referring to the Belleview Soft Phosphate, will be soluble by gradual steep, under influence of rain water, provided it'fo perfectly
burnt and pulverized in fine f powder.
Serge Maly van says that after analyzing samples of Soft Phosphate from different mines throughout the State that the only soluble Soft Phosphate; is con
tained in an area of about six miles at anti around Belleview.
The Belleview Soft Phosphate is especially good for ]peach, ]Dear and orange trees grape vines and strawberries, and for cotton and corn it has no equal. '
The analysis of our Soft Phosphate shows that every lenient 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. ;
