7_, THE EUREKA INSECTICIDE IS THE ONLY RELIABLE,

Surely effective and cheapest material offered for tho destruction of insects. Its proper use will kill the spider, rust mite, anguil-

lula, ,moving scale and fungus growths. It is a sure remedy for tho "foot-rot" and tho "blight" of tho orange and tho wilt of the pineapple.

v It.' will not only prevent tho oranges from rusting, but will greatly improve tho classification of the fruit.

SULPHUR SOLUTION .


\i ') ',\'i : .. (INSECTICIDE)

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

remedy fot 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 h&

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 tree.

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 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. If there is no agent in your vicinity, write for price delivered.

;. AR FAR: IN TI-IE LEAD ODIIIS SEASON.

THEIR CELKBRATKD Brand of TRUCK FARMERS' SPECIAL produced the first beet crop of the year and the patrons of this brand have been very successful and made large snmsof
money out of their crop the past )year. Messrs. G. W. itigelow and N. J.Anderson of 13uihnell Fla., stated their crops of Watermelons into market the latter pare of May.
Mr. BIOEUW sold two cars in New York through Sffobelfc: Day for$458.00 first car and$530.00 second car-Tiie highest price ever realized m New York. lIe also sold one car in Beaton for
$500,'aDd other cars at(fancy pticcs.: No Brand of Fertilizer has Realized One-Third as Good Results. Write for full information regarding& our different biands of Special Mixtures.

,
1: A FEW FACTS FROM FIGURING: "


1F,. YOU CAN produce a car load of fino early melons from our Truck Farmers' Special and sell at $300 or over per car in New York,

Is it not more remunerative than using slower and cheaper fertilizers ? Let us figure : A car of early melons that cut well will bring

in'Now: York at least $300. Deduct $140 (freight, $110; commission, $30;) and you will get 1GO net proceeds. But if you use a fertilizer

tlt t is not carefully prepared or adapted to the crop and soil requirements of the State you get your melons into a late market and are

'fqjtunate if they bring freight charges. Say, however, two later curs bring a total of $300, you have double freight, amounting to $220,

commission,, $30, leaving only $50 as your not proceeds.-OBSERVE THE DIFFERENCE!

j DOES IT PAY TO USE HIGH GRADE FERTILIZERS IN LARGE QUANTITIES?

By writing to us we can give you some valuable points on this subject and show you how to obtain remunerative crops.
