A good spraying outfit and a reliable Insecticido are as essential to successful orange growing as the harrow and fertilizers.-

It is titxe Re1iab1e,

Surely effective and cheapest material offered for the destruction of insects. Its proper use will kill the spider,rust mite, aleyrodes, anguil- '

lulu, moving scale and fungus growths. It is u. sure remedy for the "foot rot" and tho:"blight" of the orange und the wilt of the pineapple.

It will not only prevent the oranges from rusting, but will greatly improve the classification of the fruit.
