SULPHUR SOLUTION


(INSEC'1"'ICIDE)

Is the most effective compound yet discovered for destroying the insects infesting the orange tree, and is a sovereign

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

nature, it can be handled with perfect safety to the person, and applied to the trees at any stage of growth without

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

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 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 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-

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 .

FLORIDA DISPATCH, FARMER AND FRUIT GROWER. 261

. AN OPEN "LETTER.

."
TO ORHNGE GROWERS KND SHIPPERS :


For the purpose of helping to better the interests of all concerned 1 in the marketing of the crop of Florida oranges, and creating some needed reforms in the present
system of distributing the crop,! have opened an office at No. 94 West Bay street, Jacksonville, Fin. (Transportation How), and also in the principal markets of the East
and West at tho addresses given below.I .
firmly believe that with many improvements on the present system! pact 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 dfeiascd of to betttcr advantage than is the case at present.
Believing in the auction system I have arranged to havo all shipments intrusted to my cure sold at auction at each point I ship to. Each shipper's account bales
will be accompanied with a price catalogue showing tho results made.
When shit! I will sell hero in Jacksonville, at auction or at private sate as I may be directed. ''' ing elsewhere, the condition of tho various
markets will be studied and tho oranges sent to which ever point promises to i pay the beet prices. These will be ascertained by daily reports from Boston, New York,
Philadelphia and Chicago. .
k All fruits for Western markets will bo started to Chicago, and diverted by my representative. there while in transit, to which ever of tho other Western points
promises better prices.All .
shortages, after the fruit reaches Jacksonville, will be guaranteed<< by me.
Shipijers' 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 tho part reading
"New York."
By an arrangement with the railroad and transportation companies, all fruit bearing my name will come to Jacksonville, and sent to the beet market from here,
solid carloads only being made up for Western points, giving my shippers tho benefit of the carload rate. -
On receipt of the oranges hero and on the same day n 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. shippers prefer, a draft can be drawn on me when the fruit is shipped, for 75 cents per box, tho
draft to accompany the bill lading. On receipt of the oranges and after examination, showing the same to be of fair quality agree to pay the same. I reserve tho
right to modify this matter of advances! on giving live days notice.
Believing that it costs fruit shippers too much at present to market their crop and feeling that a fair: profit for me can bo made at a lower rate of commission, I havo
fixed this at six per cent. to cover all charges i except freight and cartage, which shall be actual. A saving of over $140,000 yearly. can thus be made to the orange
growers of}."Florida,
A most important reform I pn>i>oe to carry out, I call your i 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 as much as a good reputation. Up to the present you are only Known to our buyers by a stencil number-which (is an
injustice to :you. Therefore, let every shipper! put his own name on the ends of the boxes, and this, with the stencil number, win appear on the cataloguo from which our
buyers purcliase 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 ho his fruit carefully and well, and sends only a good finality. As a business man, (dealing largely with Spain and California, many shippers from which
fruit sections have l so established a good name for their brand; as to make it possible for me very often to sell to the buyers on the well known merits of tho brand without
seeing tho fruit I firmly believe that the Florida orange growers' intenta havo been seriously) prejudiced in the l past; by simply knowing a man and his fruit by hisstencil
numlxjr-which is cosily fo },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

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

Serge Malyvan says that after annI.zingmplC8 of Soft Phosphate from different mines throughout the State that the only solublo Soft Phosphate is con

tamed in an area of about six miles at and around Belleview.
The Belleview Soft Phosphate is especially good for ]beach, pear 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 element it contains is absolutely essential as plant food, and every intelligent man will see the importanceof

buying plant food at so little cost per ton.

CUT RATES ON FERTILIZERS AND FERTILIZER MATERIALS.

_... .. -a __ z _

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,.

0. 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 bo of the very highest standing and

giving the very highest tests and valuations. Bringing their goods down in large quantities schooner, and at reduced freight rates, and handlingthem j

practically without any costs for drayage, and their storage facilities being of such an excellent nature, having both water facilities and a private

track with all the railroads, they arc 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 fill 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

11 to $2.50 per ton less than the present quotations.

Remember these cuts commence December 15th and may stop at any time, therefore parties wishing tp buy at cut rates should M'Otllll their inquiries at once. They will never
arain be able to buy Fertilizers at tho'e exceedingly low prices unlcs this company should again take a notion to cut the prices,a thing which is seldom done In fertilizer business,it
being attempted for the first time by tbls.enterprlsing company as a trial and as an advertisement.
