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-

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

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.prescnt
system of distributing the crop, I have opened an office at No. 94 West Bay street, Jacksonville, Fla. (Transportation How), and also in the principal markets of the East. ...
and West at the addresses given below.
I (firmly believe' that with many improvements on the present system, part of which are stated 1 below, together with the management, as a business man I am
capable of giving to the details of this business, that the orange crop of Florida can be disused 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 shipper's account sale
will be accompanied with a price catalogue showing the results made ;
When shippers desire I will sell here in Jacksonville, at auction or at private sale, as I may be directed. When shipping elsewhere, the condition of the various
markets will be studied and the 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 Chicago.
AH fruits for 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 shortage, after the fruit reaches Jacksonville, will be guaranteed by me. JShiJpers' '
wishes as to destination of fruit will always be complied with.
Stencils furnished 1 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
":iew 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 for Western {paints, giving my shippers the benefit of the carload rate
I On receipt of the oranges here and on the same lay a check for from 75 cents to $1.00pcr box will go to each shipper, the amount of the advance l being determine
1 by the quality of the fruit and the conditions of tho various markets. shippers prefer, a draft can be drawn on me when the fruit is shipped, for 75: cents I per box, tliej
draft to accompany tho bill}I of lading. On receipt of the oranges and after examination, showing the same to be of fair quality,:I agree to pay the same. I reserve the
right to modify this matter of advances, on giving five days' notice. t
Believing that it costs fruit shippers too much at present 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 freight and cartage, which shall bo actual. A saving of over $140,000, )'cnrlyn thus be made to the orange
growers of Florida.A .
most important reform I proirac 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 t shipi>er and grower as much as a good l reputation. Up to the present you are only known to our buyers by a stencil number-which is ah
Therefore, let every' slipper put his own name on the ends of the boxes, and this, with the stencil number win on the catalogue from which our
buyers purchase tho fruit, enabling each orange: grower to establish his name and a reputation for his fruit-which once accomplished, will mean higher results for him,
providing he have his fruit carefully and well, and !Njnds only a good I quality. As a business man, dealing largely with Spain and California, many shippers from which
fruit sections! HO established a good name for their brand, as to make it possible for me very often to tell to the buyers on the well known merits oft the brand without
weinp tho fruit I firmly believe that the' Florida orange growers' interest have' been periously prejudiced in the past by simply knowing a man and his fruit by his
stencil numlwr-which is easily for)rotton. 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 .

The Belleview! Soft Phosphate is especially good for peach, pear: and orange trees, grape vines and strawberries, and for cotton and corn it has no equal. ;

T !TJ Paine Fertilizer: Company, in order to increase extensively their business in the State of Florida, have decided to make

.m s cr.ta on all FERTILIZERS AND FERTILIZER MATERIALS. 'Nicy have a large quantity of all fertilizer materials in stock at Jacksonville,

savi laid in a full supply of Sulphate of Potash, German Kainit, Nitrate of Soda, Animal Bone, Blood and Bone, Acid Phosphate, Dissolved Bone,

o 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 highest tests and valuations. Bringing their goods down in large quantities}via:: schooner, and at reduced freight rates, and handlingthem

practically without any costs for drayage, and their storage facilities being of such an excellent nn'tire, 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 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 $2.50 per ton less than the present quotations.

Remember these cute commence December 1Mb and may stop at any time, therefore parties wishing to buy ut cut rates should t'Cnllln their Inquiries at once. They will never
again bo able to buy Fertilizers at these exceedingly low prices unless this company should again take u notion to cut the prices,a thing which is seldom done in fertilizer business
being attempted for tho first time by this.cnterprising company as a trial and as an advertisement.
Address all communications
