Having been practical orange growers for a number of years, also in the business of manufacturing Insecticides and using them our-
selves 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 have 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(on
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 as Tar Emulsion, whichis I
very effective, in destroying Aleyrodes Citri (commonly known as the White Fly), also the Red Spider (not the Spotted mite or Yellow I
Spider), and used in combination with 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.
These insecticides have been used by some of the largest orange growers in the State and have given perfect satisfaction. .
References and general directions for using furnished on application.Write .

your losses from other crops. .

BE AR IN MIND that New York City alone could have used all the fine early melons grown in Florida last: year therefore if we increased} the Florida acreage tenfold or mote
there is plenty of marketing room and} the acreage is HARDLY DOUBLED this year much of it being poorly fertilized, which will only produce inferior melons
y t Hut will reach market too late to secure the handsome profits obtained} by:those who carry out our advice to the letter. The variety of melon planted by our customers! is glowing in favor: and

'I.:: Stop Fertilizing for Display !! It is FRUIT you Want,

The PROFITS in planting come from Increased Yields of Finer Vegetables, which can only be obtained by the use of High Grade Crop Formu1 -
1 adapttd to >'our soils and crops. How long is it going to take you to find out that you can treble and quadruple your NET PROFITS by using our
High-Grade Mixtures AS WE DIRECT ?
:Many have been so encouraged by PROFI'T'ABLE1'IELUS from the use of our Formulas, while previously they had barely made expenses, that
they have increased their acreage each season until now they derive VERY LAUGH INCOMES from their crops. Do you want proof of this assertion ? then
.'," write us and we will give it ; or try a few acres with our brands and prove it for yourself.;
Our experience in handling the fruit and vegetable crops in New York (for many of our customers and their friends has shown us that buyers at
.r.. that point examine each purchase with a very critical eye, they will pay HIGH PRICES (for fine stuff and but very little for'that which is ordinary. Write us

"'" Do you know that the application of light ammoniates, such as Cotton Seed :Meal, Blood and Bone, etc., etc., are the MOST INJURIOUS ARTICLES
Ir;. yon can put on your grove ? They give a splendid growth of wood and foliage, but acting only as STIMULANTS they DESTROY i THE FRUIT PRODUCING
i.. PROPERTIES of tree and plant.
J-..w A Ton of our carefully-prepared Formulas, applied as we advise, is worth, in the long run, a carload of these ammoniates improperly applied :and<1 1p.
