THE EUREKA INSECTICIDE IS THE ONLY RELIABLE,

Surely) effective and cheapest material offered for the destruction of insects. Its proper use will kill the spider, rust mite, nnguil-
I lula, moving scale and fungus growths. It is a sure remedy for the "foot-rot" and the "blight" of the orange and the wilt of the pineapple.

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

SULPHUR SOLUTION


(INSECTICIDE)

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 hj

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 itwill

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.

Spraying Apparatus furnished to our customers at cost.

A FEW FACTS FROM FIGURING:

I IF YOU CAN produce a car load of fino early melons from our Truck Fanners 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 curly melons that cut well will bringin

Now York at.least $300. Deduct $140 (freight, $110; commission, $30;) and you will get $100 net proceeds. But if you use a fortilizor
that is not carefully prepare'1 or adapted to the crop and! soil requirements of the State you get your melons into a Into market and are

fortunate if they bring freight charges. Say, however, two later cars" bring a total of $300, you have double freight, amounting to $220,
and commission $30, leaving, only $50 as your net proceeds.-OBSERVE THE DIFFERENCE!

DC "8 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.
