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

This insecticide has been used by some of the largest orange growers in the State during the past two years, anti ka

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 bees

It is better and cheaper to use the Insecticide at full strength, viz.: One gallon of solution to 50 gallons .f water, aa. 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 oae 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.

THEIR CKMJBRATKD Brand of TRUCK FARM HRS' SPECIAL produced the first best crop of the year,and the patrons of thi brand have been very successful and made large auras of
money out of their crop the past year. Messrs. GV, bigelow and N.J.Anderson of, nu. nett, Fla., started their crops of Watermelons into market: the latter part of May.
Mr. DIOELOW sold two cars in New York, through Sgobel & Day for$458.00 first car and$530.00 second' car The highest price ever realized in New York. He also sold one car in IloNtoa.for
$600.and other cars at fancy prices. No Brand of Fertilizer has Realized One-Third as Good Results. Write for full information regarding our different brands of Special Mixtures.111"1" .

I It' YOU CAN produce a car load of fine early melons from our Truck Fanners' Special]> and sell at $:100 or over per car in New York,
.. is it not more remunerative than using slower and dieaj>er fertilizers"?! Let us figure' : A car of early melons that cut well will bringin
New York at least $;'JOO. Deduct $110 (freight, $110; commission, $:JO;) and you will get $1 100 net proceeds. But if you use a fertilizer
that is not carefully prewired or adapted to the crop and soil requirements of the State you get your melons into a late market and are
fortunate if they bring freight charges. Say, however, two later caps bring a total of $JOO, you have double freight, amounting to $220,
and commission $:M, leaving only $50 as your net proceeds.-OBSERVE THE DIFFERENCE!


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