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 nature, it can be handled with perfect safety to the person, and applied to the trees at any seage of growth without
injury. *
This insecticide has been used by some of the largest orange growers in the State during the fast two years, and haa

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

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 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 reducrag the cost from one-

third to one-half.: This is an Advantage Possessed by no Other Preparation of Sulphur. loused= 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 .

For the purpose of helping to 1 tatter the i intercuts oft II concerned in the marketing of the crop of Florida 01'\01,".'", and creating: .some needed reforms in the present t \
system of distributing the crop, 1 have opened an office at Xo. 94 West: Bay street, Jacksonville= Fla. (Transportation How), and also In the principal markets of the East '
and West at the addresses given below.

I firmly believe that with many improvements on the prl'oent:; 4ysteill, halt of which are stated below, together with the management, as n business man I un
capable or giving to the details of this business, that the orange crop o1"'Florilla can he disposed oC to bettter advantage: than is the case at pn:ent.
Believing in the auction system, I have arranged to have all shipment intnu ted to my care sold at auction at each point I ship tu. Each shiplx'r'S account stks:
will be accompanied with a price catalogue: showing the results made.
When shippers desire I will sell here in Jacksonville, at auction or at private sale, as I may be directed. When shipping elsewhere, the condition of the"arlon
markets will be studied and the oranges:; sent to which ever point promises to pay I the best prices. These will be ascertained by daily reports from Boston, New York,

Philadelphia and Chicago.All .
fruits for Western markets will be started to Chicago, and diverted by my representative there while in transit, to which ever of the other Western pointspromises

better prices.All .
shortages, after the fruit reaches Jacksonville, will be guaranteed by me.
Shippers' wishes as to destination of fruit will always be complied with.

Stencils furnished free of charge, but shippers! having one bearing my name and stencil number, can use that part of the stencil, but not tRe part reading
r "New York."

By an arrangement with the railroad and transportation companies, all fruit bearing my name will come to Jacksonville, and sent to the best market from here,

solid carloads only being made up Western points, giving my shippers the benefit of the carload rate.
On receipt of the oranges here and on the same day a check for from 75 cents to $1.00 per box will go to each shipper,the amount of the advance being determinedby
the quality of the fruit, and the conditiom the various markets. If shippers prefer, a draft can be drawn on me when the fruit is shipped, for 75 cents per box, the
draft to accompany the bill of lading. On receipt of the oranges and after examination, showing the same to be of lair quality, I agree: to pay the eaine. 1 reserve the
o right to modify this matter of advances, on giving five days'. notice.
Believing that it costs fruit shippers too much at present to market their crop, and feeling that a fair profit for me can ta made at lower rate of commission; I have<<
fixed this at six per cent. to cover all charges except freight and cartage, which shall be actual. A saving of over $140,000 yearly can thus be made to the orange

growers of Florida.A .
most important reform I propose to carry out, I call your particular attention to : The value of a shipi>er's brand. A name once favorably established in all our
markets_ is worth to each shipper and grower as much as a good reputation. Tp to the present are only known to our buyers by a stencil number-which i is an
? A Therefore,let every shipper; put his own name on the ends of the taxes, and this, with the stencilllumber, will appear on the catalogue from which our
buyers purchase the fruit, enabling each orange grower to establish:; his name and a reputation for his'fruit-which once accomplished, will mean higher results for him,

providing he packs his fruit carefully and well, and sends only a good (\\ua ity. As n business man, dealing largely with Spain and California, many shippers from which
fnut.Ecchons have so established no good name for their brand, ns to mace It possible for me very often to sell to the buyers on the well known merits of the brand without
eceinj: the fruit. I firmly believe that the Florida orange: growers' interests have been seriously prejudiced in the past by simply knowing a man and his fruit by his:!
stencil number-which is easily forgotten. This I propose to correct in the future, as stated above.
:For stencils, shipping detail blanks and all further information, please call, when in Jacksonville or address
