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

On rcwipt of the oranges here and on the t alJtlay a check for from 76 cents to $1.00 pur box will go to each shipper, the amount of tho advance being determined
by the fjwality of the *mitt and the condition of the various market If gliipperg prefer, a draft can be drawn on me when: the fruit is snippets, for 75 cents per box, the

that it oots fruit shipwrs too much at undent to market their and feeling that a fair profit for me am be made at a lower rote of commission I have

V The Paine Fertilizer 'Company, in order to increase extensively their business in the State of Florida, have (decided to make

enormous cuts on all FERTILIZERS AND FERTILIZER MATERIALS. They have a large quantity of all fertilizer materials in stock at Jacksonville,

having laid in a full supply of Sulphate of Potash, German Kainit, Nitrate of Soda, Animal Bone, Blood antI Bone, Acid Phosphate, Dissolved Bone, i

0. S. G. Lime, etc., of the very highest grade, in the very best, mechanical condition.

They commence their big cuts on fertilizer materials on December 15th, and these cuts will be of such a largo nature that it will practically .,

place their goods beyond competition as regards prices. The quality pf their materials is known too well to be of the very highest standing and

'., giving the very highest tests and valuations. Bringing their goods down! i in large quantities via schooner, and at reduced freight rates, and handling .

them practically without any costs for drayage, and their storage facilities being of such an excellent nature, having both water facilities and a private

track connected with all the railroads, they } to name prices at which others could not possibly do business at a Florida they arc branching .

out into Southern, Eastern and.Northern territory and increasing their business to a wonderful extent, they intend giving buyers nIl the

benefits} of greatly reduced prices and low purchases, they having contracted for the bulk of their goods last spring when the market ranged from

$1 to 2.50 per ton less than the present quotations. .

Remember these cuts commence December 15th and may stop at any time therefore parties wishing to buy at cut rate should send in their inquiries at once. They will DeTer t
again be able to buy Fertilizers at these exceedingly: low prices unless this company should again tako a notion to cut tho prices, a thing which Is seldom dono in fertilizer business it
being attempted for the first time by this enterprising company as a trial and as an advertisement.
