Prof. A. F. Conradi Tells How
to Kill Weevil.
Clemson College, March 14.-The
Association of Cotton States Ento
mologists held a call meeting at
Vicksburg, Miss., and Tallulah, La.,
the first week in March. Prof. A. F.
Conradi, chief of the entomology di
vision of Clemson College, who at
tended this meeting says that there
was a large attendance of entomolo
gists, representatives of state depart
ments of agriculture, extension work
ers, manufacturers and planters.
Among other things the boll wee
vil situation was discussed in detail,
especially with reference to poison
ing in 1920. Following are some
facts and conclusions gathered by
Prof Conradi at the meeting:
L Experience shows quite positive
ly that successful poisoning depends
largely on using proper machines
built for this work.
2. Attempts at poisoning with the
bag and pole method or with the old
types of dusting machinery proved
unsatisfactory in 1919.
3. Though several manufacturers
are interested in producing properly
constructed dusting machines, pro
duction is yet necessarily limited
and only a comparatively few ma
chines will be available in 1920.
4. Farmers should make sure of a
suitable machine before buying pois
on, which is useless without a ma
5. The supply of calcium arsenate,
the approved poison, is greater than
the supply of machnies necessary to
6. The manufacture of calcium ar
senate is by no means standardized
and for various purposes besides pois
7. A special calcium arsenate pro
duced is needed for weevil poison
ing for satisfactory results.
8. The specifications of the United
States department of agriculture for
this material should be followed,
Not less than 40 per cent, arsenic
Not more than 0.75 per cent water
soluble arsenic pentoxide.
Density not less than 80 or more
than 100 cubic inches per pound.
?>. The buyer should secure con
tract to this effect and upon receiv
ing the material, send sample taken
from different packages for free
analysis to Delfs Laboratory, Tallu
10. Analyses are made free and as
promptly as possible. Instructions for
collecting samples can be had from

"Washington, March 13.-Washing
ton today heard some interesting
South Carolina political gossip refer
ring to the race for the United States
senate during the coming summer.
Friends of R. Goodwyn Rhett, of
Charleston, formerly mayor of that
city and one of its best known citi
zens, have been discussing his name
in connection with the matter.
What conclusion they have reached
is not known and nothing more than
the fact that his name has been un
der consideration was available here
today. It was also said that former
"Senator Christie Benet of Columbia,
who was in thc senate for several
months immediately after the death
of Senator Tillman, has the matter
under consideration, but has not yet
made up his mind what he will do.
Friends of former Governor Rich
ard R. Manning, have suggested to
.the members of the South Carolina
Jelepation in congress that his name
be presented to the president for ap
pointment as one of the additional
members of the interstate commerce
commission. It is learned, however,
the members had already endoi'sed
another South Carolinian for this
place before they heard from Gov.
Debs in Prison Cell Consents to
Enter Race for Presidency.
Atlanta, Ga., March 14-Eugene
'.V. Debs, former candidate for presi
dent of the United States, now an in
mate of the f?deral penitentiary here
has given his consent l?or the use of
his name as a presidential candidate,
in the coming Michigan primary, ac
cording to a statement made tonight
by Warden Fred B. Zerbst, of the
Warden Zerbst stated that a dele
gation of Michigan socialists visited

xained his consent to the use of his
name as a candidate in the Michigan
primary. Owing to the rules it was
impossible to sec Debs tonight.

Can a Man Save
By REV. J. H. RALSTON, D. D.
Secretary of Correspondence Department,
Moody Bible Institute, Chicago
TEXT-Himself he cannot save.-Mat?.
The words given here as the text
for this meditation were not true on
the occasion of
They were nt- j
tered by the high
priests, as Jesus
hung on the
cross, and were
spoken of Jesus
s a vi n g himself
ing away from
the cross and tak
ing his place
among the people.
Jesus had the
power, even while
nailed to the
cross, and all clr
cum s tances
against him, to save himself.
But the idea of salvation, or the
6avlng from the position of loss and
ruin, is not confined to Jesus. It con
cerns every man who recognizes the
being of God, his moral responsibili
ties and the realities of a future life.
Most men recognize that they are not
right with God, yet many of them do
not take any thought that they need
eaving. As lost, they are to be found,
as perishing, they need to be saved.
That the drift of the day in some
respects is towards emphasizing the
ephemeral and the things of little
consequence in themselves, is ac
knowledged. Yet there is a certain
seriousness as to man's relationship
to God that has attracted attention.
The sudden dying of millions of men
within the last four years has made
many think. Many thousands of men
have stood in the battle front and
seen their comrades fall by their side,
and have seen the battlefields strewn
with the bodies of the dead and dy
ing. These hin e had serious thoughts,
and many such have brought these
thoughts home with them.
A man to be right with God must
be good, but :he very book that tells
us about God and our relationship to
him says that "there is none that
doeth good; no, not one." "All we
like sheep have gone astray. We have
turned every one to his own way and
the Lord hath laid on him the in
iquity of us all." (Isa. 53:6.)
Not only does the Bible speak of
man being wrong as to his outward
life, but he is wrong as to his nature,
his whole Inner being is corrupted ; In
deed, he is an enemy of Goth Whether
he knows it or not, the wrath of God
rests on him; condemnation is n<\t
awaiting him, he is doomed already.
Man cannot save himself. A deep
consideration of man's moral and
spiritual standing shows that he is
absolutely incapable of saving him
self. Few think deeply on Bible
teaching, and most think that
by some kind of outward exer
tion, or moral conduct, everything
will be made right with God. We do
not speak of the Pharisee of the New
Testament times, a day of extremely
formal religion, but we have in mind
the vast majority of people, Gentiles
as well as Jews, who have some con
ception that mao can, by the strictest
observance of law, doing the very
best that is in him, living up to all
the light he has, win, or merit, God's
favor. This is a delusion that Satan
uses most successfully. The natural
man thinks so much of himself that
any intimation that his righteousness
is as filthy rags is offensive ; but such
are the principles of God's moral gov
ernment, that unless a man is perfect,
all is lost. A single missing link is
But man is not left helpless. He
can be saved, but it is hy One whose
work as a Savior is a matter of pure
revelation. While the principle <of
substitution is one that is quite com
mon in the affairs of man, few men
dream that the principle applies to
spiritual salvation. Jesus Christ
came into this world to seek and save
the lost, he came as a ransom for
many, and proclaims to all that If
they come to him they may be saved.
"There is none other name given un
der heaven amongst men, whereby we
must be saved."
Jesus Christ is not an absentee
Savior. He is a very near friend, a
true brother to every one who will
accept him. While there is a great
mystery as to this sinlessness, Jesus
was tempted in all points like as we
are, yet without sin. Even now in his
glorified state, he is touched with the
feeling of our infirmities, and further
more he ls the Savior who will make
man's salvation complete.
In the fifth Liberty loan campaign,
the most impressive pictorial adver
tisement was that of a common labor
ing man dressed in his laboring
clothes, four Liberty buttons pinned
to his breast, and with his hand
thrust Into his pocket saying, "Sure,
we'll finish the job." Jesus Christ will
finish the job. He will not only be
with the man until he dies, but he will
receive him If he dies, which is far
better than to let him remain on the
earth; but in any case, whether the
man dies or not, his body will be made
like Christ's glorlons body, and he will
be exalted to reign with Christ for

The Married Man
They make a good many jokes at the expense of the
"poor married man." but really marriage is no joke to
the man who is married.
It is a stern, sobering event to the average man
when he takes unto himself a wife, lt means two mouths
to feed instead of one. Two people to be properly clothed,
a home to furnish, additional duties and responsibilities.
lt means more economy, more careful adjustment of
finances. An account at our bank is one of the greatest
safeguards the newly married man can make. Save a
little something every week, every month, every year
for a rainy day.
