The Paine Fertilizer Company, in order to increase extensively their) business! in the State of Florida, have decided to make

enormous!! cut on all FERTILIZERS AND FERTILIZER MATERIALS. /Hioy have a large quantity of all fertilizer materials in stock' at Jacksonville! ,

having laid in a full supply of Sulphate of Potash, German Kninit, Nitrate of Soda+ Animal Bone, Blood( and Hone, Acid Phosphate! Iii' oh'ctlllono,

O. S. G. Lime, etc., of the very highest!" grade, in the very best: mechanical condition

They commence) their l big cuts on fertilizer materials on December I I Iftth! 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 he of the very highest standing and

giving the very highest tests! and valuations. Hringing their goods down in large quantities: via schooner, and at reduced freight rates, and handling

them practically without any co ts 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 wonderful) extent, they intend giving Florida buyers QH the

benefits of f greatly reduced prices and low purchases, they having contracted. for the bulk of their goods last spring, when the market rangetl from

tl to *'JO per ton less than the present: quotations.

Mwweml or that cut comment DeromlMT 1Mb and may stop. at any lime\ therefore parties wHilnir( to buy at cut rate should "cIIII l in their Inquiries' at once. They will never
