the various forms of fungi{ on trees and plants. Being free from all substances of a caustic, corrosive or poisonous nature, it can

This insecticide has been used by some of the largest oianp-e orowersin the State during the past. two years, and has given

perfect satisfaction. References furnished on application.

To the Orange Growers and Market Gardeners of Florida:
'Ve produce the Leading Phosphate of the world. It is the cheapest. It is the best. It is quick, vigorous fertilizer. It increases the crops.


t Analysis by eminent chemists show that it contains over 50 per cent of bone phosphate of lime that is available at once in soil water, the balance, 20 to 30 pe-II j

I cent,-becomes gradually available. Experts certify to its having a value as plant food green as it comes from the mine of over $:j per ton as compared with com-

e, mercial acidulated fertilizers, and no danger in its use. The analysis of our Soft Phosphate as given by Serge Maly van. of Ocala, is as follows:

Insoluble Silicate and Sand..... .. ..... 18.76 I Phosphoric!" Acid......... .. ...... .. .. .... 27.63 I Oxide of Iron .. ... ............. ........ .74 I Magnesia and Soda ......... ..... .... 6.59
; Carbonate" Lime. .... ....... .. .. .... ....... 4-561 1 Equivalent to Bone Phosphate Lime. .... ....60.70 I j Aluminum ................. ...... 2.07 I I MOisture.... 0.... ......... .............. 6.55He :

, says your Soft Phosphate, referring to the Belleview Soft Phosphate, will be soluble, gradual steep, under influence of rain water, provided it is perfectly -
burnt and pulverized in tine powder.

" Serge Malyvan says that after analyzing samples of Soft Phosphate from different mines throughout the State, that the only soluble Soft Phosphate is con-
tained in an area of about six miles at and around Belleview.

The Belleview Soft Phosphate is especially good for peach, pear and orange trees grape vines and strawberries. and for cotton and corn it has no equal.

The analysis of our Soft Phosphate shows that every element it contains is absolutely essential as plant food, and every intelligent man will see thp importanceof

buying plant food at so little cost per ton. .
