'Surely effective and( cheapest material offered for the destruction of insects. Its proper use will kill the spider, rust mite, nnguil-
lulu, 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 I prevent the oranges from rusting, but will greatly improve the classification of the fruit.

Is the moat 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

insecticide has been used by some of the largest orange growers in the State during the past two years, and hu

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 treei

it is better and cheaper to use the Insecticide at full strength, viz.: One gallon of solution to 50 gallons of water, a* 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 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.

THEIR CELEBRATED Brand of TRUCK PARMKRS SPECIAL produced first best crop of the year,and the patrons of this brand have< money out of their crops the past year Messrs. G. W. liigelow and N.J.Anderson,of Mushnell Fla.,started their crops of Watermelon into market the latter part of May.
Mr.BIOBLOW sold two can in New York,through Sgobel& Day,for$450.00 first car and$530.00 second car-The highest price ever realized in New York. He also sold one car in Boston,for
$600 and other cars at fancy prices. No Brand of Fertilizer Realized One-Third as Good Results. Write for full information regarding our different brands of Special Mixtures.T .

Ji" YOU CAN produce a car load( of fine early melons.from our Truck Farmers Special and sell at $:100 or over per car in Now York,

is it not more remunerative than using slower and cheaper fertilizers ?1 Let us figure : A car of early melons that cut well will bring

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

that is not carefully prepared or adapted to the crop and soil requirements of the State you get your melons into a Into market and aro

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


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

GENTLEMEN.have read with much interest Prof. Pratt' analysts of your O. S. C.Lime,reported in the FARMER AND FRUIT GROWER of the 9th In5t. I purchased two tons of you about three
months ago and sowed it broadcast over two acres nf newly cleared up bay-head land. I have now growing over 4,000 cabbages, tsootomato plants several hundred egg plants,beets,lettuce, cauliflower
and onions all doing remarkably well all of which 1 attribute to the use nf your 0. S.C. Lime. Less than four months ago this garden was a wet swampy bay-head.' I have four acres now to clear
up and shall use a ton to an acre. Yours truly,
