Is the most effective compound yet discovered for destroying the insects infesting the orange tree, and is a sovereign

remedy fox the various forms of fungi on trees and plants. Being free from all substances of a caustic, corrosive or polf-

onous 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, and h&

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 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 reducing the cost from one-

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.

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

Price 20c. Per Gallon, in barrels. If there is no agent in your vicinity, write for price delivered.

Spraying Apparatus furnished to our customers at cost.

IF YOU;OAK produce a car load of fine early melonsfrom our Truck Farmers' Special] and sell at $:.100 or over per car in Now York,

is it not more remunerative than using slower and! cheaper fertilizers Let us figure : A car of early melons that cut well will bring

in New York at least $300. Deduct $1.10 (freight, $110; commission, $:30;) and you will get 100 net proceeds. But if you use a fertilizer

that is not carefully prepared or adapted to the crop and soil requirements of the State you get your melons into a Into market and am

fortunate if they bring freight charges. Say, however, two later cars bring a total of $300, you have double freight, amounting to $220,
and commission $30, leaving only $50 as your net nrocccds.-OBSERVE THE DIFFERENCE!

DEAR SIR:-We take pleasure in faying that we are well plea: rotor They do excellent work in the nursery. We have been using the Acme,and Planet,JrM
among our nursery trees. The addition of the New South Cnltivator to our Hock of tools&: will
enable us to do better work. We also tried them in corn and better work could not be dene. They
certainly would be valuable in the cotton field. Very rr ptctfully.JHNNINGS .
