TO THE ORANGE ROWERS OF FLORIDA.Having .

\ ,
.
been practical orange growers for a number of years, also in the business of manufacturing Insecticides and using them ourselves -

I 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. :

I !

I i f It, has never yet been, Adulterated or Diluted in any form whatever in order to Lower the Price. as :

I 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' sprayedonthe :

*trees,. at any stage of growth, without injury to them or the persons using it. 0 "

", .: As sulphur will !not kill all insects affecting the orange tree, we have perfected another insecticide, known as Tar Emulsion, which

". ...: is very effective in destroying Aleyrodes Citri '(commonly known as the White Fly), also the Red (Spider (not the Spotted mite or Yellow

.;, 4 Spider:) ), and used in combination with Sulphur Solution it will give better results than any insecticide ever used. .

.'.. We have tested 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. ; \ T'. ';

; How to row Wntermees tar Large Profits




Is a treatise on melon culture recently issued by the Paine Fertilizer Company,who have,during the past six or seven years,made the fertilization and sale of the melon crop a SPECIAL
f. STUDY believing:and finally proving that this crop is not only the MOST PROFITABLE)crop grown in Florida but also a CERTAIN CROP,if planted and fertilized according to the directions given
\ in the above pamphlet which will be sent FREE upon application.
{J Our Company are the only manufacturers of High-Grade Crop Formulas,who have carefully studied the requirements of many of our principal and best-paying crops, especially the Water-
melon.

i Write Us for Full Information Showing How to Plant for Market on a Large Scale.

!
: REMEMBER that our specialty for years has been the growing and selling of melons for large profits. Our watermelon brands aro known and used throughout the watermelon
I sections. No other company has ever manufactured special brands for this crop.

;, BEW'' ARE of those Imitating our formulas or copying our instructions-the use of their fertilizers can only mean PARTIAL SUCCESS and often TOTAL FAILURE.


; COMMENCE PLANTING NOVI' and continue,as we direct every ten days until last of March. Write for full particulars. NOW is an opportunity to recoup
: your losses from other crops.

: BEAR 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 more
there is plenty of11larketin room and the acreage is HARDLY DOUBLED this year much of it being poorly fertilized, which will only produce inferior melons
: that 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 growing in favor and
i the demand is increasing each year.Our .
:, Company,with its house at New York and connections at Boston and Phitadelr.hia. command tho principal dish Uniting points in the Northeast,where the highest prices are always
paid for fine melons. Should the quantity of early melons grown in this State o. have arrangements at Cincinnati and Chicago to distribute them through the West. We already
have control of the bulk of the early crop-let us handle yours,and it will reduce competition on sales,thus enabling us to hold up the market to the HIGHEST POSSIBLE:: PRICES
making\t : i
an purchase our Special large quantities, so as to plant on a more extensive scale. Write for stencil. .

f

i 1 THE ORANGE CROP NEXT YEMR:


will bring the highest prices per box ever known. GET and FOLLOW our instructions and you will not only have a good crop of fine fruit next winter,but you will save your trees, hurt by the De-
cember and February freezes, from two or three yurs set back. Full directions will>e given upon application.



GROW CROPS FOR -TPROFITS: !



Stop Fertilizing for Display It is FRUIT you Want,


Fine, Bright, Thin-skinned, Juicy Oranges in LARGE


QUANTITIES that bring High Prices in Market.The .



PROFITS in planting come from Increased Yields of Finer Vegetables, which can only be obtained by the use of High Grade Crop Formulas -

adapted to your 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 PROFITABLE YIELDS 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 LARGE 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

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

for our pamphlets and advice of how to grow crops for LARGE PROFITS, also, how to fertilize trees on different soils for INCREASED YIELDS of FINER

FRUIT.
Do you know that the application of light ammoniates, such as Cotton Seed Meal, Blood and Bone, etc., etc., are the MOST INJURIOUS ARTICLESyou

can put on your grove ? They give a splendid growth of wood and foliage, but acting only as STIMULANTS they DESTROY THE FRUIT PRODUCING
PROPERTIES of tree and plant.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

being IMPROPERLY PROPORTIONED with potash, phosphoric acid, magnesia, etc., etc.
You are growing FRUIT, not FOLIAGE, for sale, VEGETABLES, not VINES, therefore you must avoid all RANK: GROWTH It is
STEADY, STRONG and HEALTHY GROWTH that developes the FRUIT-PRODUCING PROPERTIES of the plant and puts money into your

pocket. Write us for all information on agricultural matters, to

710 and 712 East Bay St., Jacksonville Florida

And for all information about selling your fruit and vegetable crops, to

No.1" Broadway New York N. Y.

Get our latest prices on all agricultural chemicals before purchasing elsewhere. We undersell all competitors. Our facilities enable us to do this

easily, and, as a rule, to give better and higher class grades of materials.
