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 pois-

onous 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 has

given perfect satisfaction.: !References furnished on application.For .

Rust Mite use one quart to fifty gallons of water. \Vhen 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 I Insecticide at full strength, viz.: One gallon of solution to 50 gallons of water; as the

fumes from the Insecticide 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 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 on application.

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

They commence their big cuts on fertilizer materials on December Ifith) :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: i is known too well to he of the very highest standing and

giving the very hi I1t't-t tests and valuations. Bringing their goods=" down in large quantities schooner, and at reduced freight rates, and) handling

them practically without any cots for drayage, and... their storage flcilitichcing of such an excellent nature, having both water facilities and a private

track connected l with all the railroads, they are prepared) to name prices at which others.. =" could I 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 all 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 to -.5U )per ton less than the present quotations. __

ItememlHT these cut* conimom-e I)4 i'ember 15th and may stop at any time, thc'ruforifpartlos wtshintr to buy at cut rates should pond in their inquiries at once. They will never
