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 pole \

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


insecticide has been used by some of the largest orange growers in the State during the past two years, anl! 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 trees

It 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 qot happen to touch them,.,- tnTstng tKe

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

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. i r

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

.pa1Jte oCgh'IDg to the derails of this bu nell, that the orange crop of Florit'hn au1 1 be fUSpO OO or to bettter advantage than is the ca.o at IreHnt. .

Believing in the auction r j KT'%%sa44 m have V* CaflEA to have all shipments intn1-St to my taro sold at auction at each point I ship to. hneh shipper's aceount sales Y

All phorta'ges, after the fruit ratchet; Jacksonville, will be guaranteed)" me.
Shippers' wishes a* to destination of fruit will always be complied with. .

"New York.

liyanarranieeinent with the railroad and! transportation comjmie, all fnlit lx' ring my name will come to Jacksonville, and tint to the \\xt! market from here,
wlid oarloada only' I wing made up for Western point, giving my shippers the benefit of the carload rate.
On receipt of the oranges hero and on the mine day l a check for from 76 cents to $1.00 lox will go to each the amount of tho advanco being determined
'h>. tho quality of the fruit, and the oonditionof the various market; If shippers prefer, a draft can bo drawn on mo when tho fruit is shipped, for 78 cents l>a2r lox, the
draft to accompany the bill 1 of lading. On receipt of the orange I and after examination, showing the sumo to t he of (fair quality, 1 agree to j iiay tho panic. I reserve the
right to modify this matter of advances, on giving live days' notice.
Believing that it ooMtJ fruit phippers too much at to market their and feeling that a fair profit for me can be made at a lower rate of commission, I have
fixed this at six per cent. to cover all Hiaiyeexcept' eight anti cartage, crop\\U\ll 1 lx actual. A Paving of over 140.000 yearly am thus! 1 be made to tho orangegrowers

of Florida.A .
most important reform I propose to carry out, I call your particular attention to : The value of a thi! brand. A name once: favorably established in all our
f&Ark&te 1M worth to each hipper anti grower M much as a good reluhdion. Cp to the present nro only mown to our bn era by n stencil number- vhich Is an
injustice to 'OUt Therefore, let every fhipp'r: put hi8 own name on the ends of the boxes, and this, with tho :stencil number, will appear on tbo catalogue from which our ,'
OO"OI'8 purclKUC: the fruit, enabling each urange grower to l-.ab1i@h Iris ntuile mid a reputation for his fmit-which'COmplishcd, will mean higher results for him,
l1ro\idin he packs his fruit carefully' and hell, alHI ends only n good qualih. \8 a Im inO@tJ man, dealing largely with Spain and California, many 8hlppcns front which
fmit Ecctions 111\0 so establishetl a J l name for their.hntn as to make it io=$ihle for me vcrr often to ell to the buyers on the well known merits of tho brand without
the fmit. I nnly believe that the Florida;) orange growcn interests have been fcrious1.y prejudiced in the past heimp1)- knowing 1\ man and his fruit by histench

number which is easily forgotten.) Thus I propose to correct in the future, as stated above.
