Is.the most effective compound yet discovered for destroying the insects infesting the orange tree, and is a sovereign

remedy for the various forms of fungi on trees and plants. Being free from all substances of a caustic, corrosive or pois-

onous natuie, it can be handled with perfect safety to the person, and applied to the trees at any stage of growth without

injury.This .
... insecticide_ has been used by some of the largest orange growers in the State during the past two years, and has

".given perfect satisfaction. References furnished on application.For .

Rust Mite use one quart to fifty gallons of water. When used at this strength the trees should be sprayed for

the Rust Mite twice a month through the season. Where labor constitutes the principal item of expense in spraying treesit

f is better and cheaper to use the Insecticide at full strength, viz.: One gallon of solution to 50 gallons of water, as .the
fumes: from the Insecticide will kill the Rust Mite even i if: the solution should not happen to touch them. In using the

Insecticide at this strength it will save three or four sprayings through the season, thereby reducing the cost from one-

third to one-half.: This is an Advantage Possessed by no Other Preparation of Sulphur. If used in this manner it

will also kill the other insects that may be moving on the trees. .

For Red Spider and Scale, use one gallon to fifty gallons of water. General directions for using sent on application.Price .

X Every exhaustive test made by the largest and best known truckers and fruit raisers in the State clearly demonstrated that the various brands of specially prepared fertilizers placed
the market by the Paine Fertilizer Co.,of Jacksonville,Fla., give a better and healthier growth and have decidedly superior productive qualities. Our customers,each. season sendto
market the first and finest vegetables, always obtaining the cream of the high pricest.' This summer Mr. G.V.. llfgelow of Bushnell, Fla. who used ten tons ot our Truck F'armers'Special '
," sent to this and to New York and Boston markets the first ripe watermelons of the season, three ot these cars selling at between ft3; and$35: each, whereas later melons ecarcely
brought freight. Almost every well-known paper in the State referred to these melons and spoke of the superior quality ot our fertlUzers. We will further show to anyone calling at
our office letters and account sales from Nevi York and Boston commission houses stating that these melons were the finest ever received so early in the season. One of the largest and
best known growers in the State does not find the summer too hot to praise our fertilizers. .

Tlit Paine Fertilizer Co..Jacksonville Fla.: -
;_-', .%DKAH SIRS-I applied ten tons of your Orange Food No. 1 to my older bearing trees last December; hadbut little rain until a few weeks ago. I feel assured that I have a heavier
crop than ever before. Some of my trees are bending over with fruit so as to require propping. My trees are now free from red spider and rust mite, and during the long drouth my
trees did not wiltand drop their fruit as others aid. My fruit is the prettiest I haveever had. Yours etc., 9 ROBERT C. MAY.
Mr. J. M. Watrous of Tampa, Fla., has used o-ern: >tons of our Special mixtures on his groves, and gardens near Tampa, with. highly satisfactory results,exhaustive tests clearly
r demonstrating that our brands gave greater production than any other fertilizers or combinations of agricultural chemicals.
, None of the above parties are in any way connected with our company as agents or otherwise f.'Bigelow paying us.1350.00 for ten tons of our Truck Farmers' Special without any t
discounts. This we can prove at any time,or forfeit $500. ; \
We have always been cutters in the market. Our business has Increased enormously while others have fallen off as rapidly, our economical facilities for handling our goods making
impossible for others to compete with us in prices and our long experience in the fertilizer business enabling us to select only 'suchgoods as show the' very highest analysts and best
mechanical condition. <
\ The combinations of the various agricultural chemicals used in the formulas for our Special brands are the results of numerous exhaustive tests made with Florida crops oti Florida'
: oils during the past fifteen years and each season we have increased the quality of our various brands, regulating them so that each mixture would contain exactly what the orop for
1 which it was made required,and so that the ingredients would become available at the proper time, thus enabling the farmer and fruit grower to raise larger toe uneerMinty.OUR .
