Having been practical orange growers for a number of years, also in the business of manufacturing Insecticides''and using them ourselves -
*',: for the last ten years, we speak from experience when we make the following statement :

".:: That SULPHUR SOLUTION INSECTICIDE is by far the cheapest and best preparation yet offered to the orange grower. '.

It has never yet been Adulterated or Diluted in any form whatever in order to Lower the Price, as
;'. other Insecticides hare been throughout the State, .

But'is,always uniform in strength and can be depended on to accomplish the purpose for which it was made. It,can be sprayed|oi? \
the trees, at any stage of growth, without injury to them or the persons using it. _
As sulphur will not kill all insects affecting the orange tree, we have perfected another insecticide, known,gas Tar Emulsion, whichis
:' very effective in destroying Aleyrodes Citri (commonly known as the White Fly), also the Red Spider (not the Spotted mite or Yellow C

Spider), and used in combination. Sulphur Solution it will give better results than any insecticide ever used.
We have tested it thoroughly the past two years ourselves, and know whereof we speak. .
J These insecticides have been used by some of the largest orange growers in the State and have given perfect satisfaction.. : .

The Paine Fertilizer Company, i Broadway, New York: MANNVILLE, FLA., Nov. 21, 1894.
GENTLEMEN-I have used your Special Brands of Orange and Truck'Fertilizers for a number of years and am better pleased the more I use them. Last season I shipped my oranges to two
i different firms and the catalogues show that my oranges brought from 25C to 4oc per box above the average sales of the day, and the parties wrote me "We can get high prices for good oranges at
any time and YOURS are good." The Rev. A. Flower here has trees that were set out four years ago that have made a remarkable growth and are bent to the ground with fruit, and they have had
no other fertilizer than Paine's "Tree Grower Special." I know of no fertilizer that will give such satisfactory results, both in growth of wood and quality of fruit, as Paine's Fertilizers.
\ Very truly yours,
I Settle the"potash question'! by using potash from that best adapted to the crop you are raising and see that it is properly combined with phosphoric acid, ammonia, lime, magnesia, etc., as
found in our SPECIAL CROP


i our Company could,prepare'HIGHER GRADES of fertilizers and sell them at LOWER PRICES than other manufacturers. The reason is obvious. We are home manufacturers, saving all extra
i costs transportation, additional,handling, drayage, etc., extra storage and the Jacksonville agents' commissions. In purchasing from us, you secure your fertilizers from first .handstheI
I manufacturers all pur shipments direct from our.factory, accordingly we can make you a lower list price on our Special Crop Mixtures. But in addition to this, we propose, during the present
i r ,season of'94-95, to giveevery purchaser of our brands the benefit of,all the profits of the middlemen and agents, therefore we will allow, with ALL CASH ORDERS, ,


The usual commission paid to agents. We propose to give the growers of Florida and other States their fertilizers on closer margins of profit than ever before.

: A complete: 'treatise on the'most successful fertilization for young and bearing orange-trees ,on 'pine and ham-

mock lands in Florida for increased profits, sent on application.
