Surely effective and cheapest material offered for the destruction of insects. Its proper use will kill the spider, rust mito, anguil-
lula, moving scale and fungus growths. It is a sure remedy for the "foot-rot" and the "blight" of tho orange and tho wilt of tho pineapple.

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