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' preparation offered to the orange grower.

It has never yet been 1 Adulterated. or Diluted in 'f\,ny 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 ion

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
very effective in destroying Aleyrodes Citri (commonly known as the White Fly), also the Red Spider (riot the Spotted mite or Yellow
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. x. \
<- These insecticides have been used by some of the largest orange growers in the State and have given perfect satisfaction. : '}::-';':-
