.. .-- -_____. ---- u
The Paine Fertilizer Company, in order to increase extensively their business in the State of Florida, have decided to makeJacksonville

enormous cuts on all FERTILIZERS AND FERTILIZER JIATERIALS. 'fhey have a large: quantity of all fertilizer materials in stock at ,
having laid in a full supply of Sulphate of Potash, German l Iainit, Nitrate of Soda, Animal Bone, Blood and Bone, Acid Phosphate, Dissolved Hone,
O. 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 be of the very highest standing: and
giving the very highest tests and valuations.! Bringing their goods down in largo 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 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 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 12.50 s I per ton less than the present quotations. .
Remember theso cute commence Deeemlier 15th And may stop at any time therefore parties wishing to buy at cut rates nhoutd send in their inquiries at once. They will never
again be able to buy Fertilizers:. at those exceedingly low prices unlca this company should again take it notion to cut the prices a thinK which is seldom done in fertilizer business, it
being attempted for the first time by this enterprising company as a trial and!as an advertisement.
