Boll Weevil Control.
I give below in plain, easily under
stood language, all of the poisoning
methods and all of the cultural meth
ods known today to and advised by
the government-it is a complete boll
weevil control to date/ To control the
weevil means prosperity to the far
mer and to business in general and
it may mean( the saving of an indus
try which before the war gave this
great country of ours its credit bal
ance in trade. I have printed many
thousands of these in a little one page
form for free distribution. The cot
ton factors of Augusta are mailing
?out today four or five thousand of
them .1 am printing below this matter ?
which I have prepared in sheet form
First, dusting in the bud. A weevil
killed in May or June is equivalent to
killing hundreds of weevils later on.
Make a small six or eight pound bag,
and attach a wooden handle and sew
cheese cloth for the bag's bottom,
giving it a diameter of about ten
inches-the same diameter as the
plant. Put in bag one-half pound of
Calcium Arsenate and flip bag over
plant as walking down the row. Use
cheese cloth bag only when dew is on
the plant, best time is five to seven J j
Second, for dusting later on, the
big plants, for poisoning the dew (
which serves the weevil for drink, j
Dust at night. After, a hard rain i
(which washes off poison) dust again. ]
For one-horse farmer use "Spring- x
field" standard hand gun, price $15. ^
For the larger farmer use "Iron Age
Cotton Dusters," two wheeled, cart
type, dusting rows and with slight- >]
est breeze blowing dusting five rows c
at a time, using two mules and one p
man, dusting about twenty-five acres (
a night and thoroughly reliable. Cal-1
cium Arsenate is so cheap and the
Iron Age does such rapid work, that
many people dust the weevil with this .
machine just as soon as squares ap
pear. Every man planting thirty acres Q
of cotton or more should have an ^
Iron Age dusting machine. It does
the work far better than a hand ma- fc
chine can possibly do and its rapidity .
makes it a matter of greatest econo- ^
my. The machine is fifty dollars ^
cheaper than last year. The present J.
price is $275 without a light f. o. b.
Dusting the plant must be made | ?
always by night and only on the dew
wet plant. One pound of Calcium p
Arsenate for dusting the bud should ?j
cover about one acre. For dusting the Q
large plant it requires for each dust- c
ing about five pounds per acre. Two p
applications may be necessary for ?(
dusting the bud; about three applica- ^
tions may be indicated for dusting ^
the large plant-beginning very late y
in June and ending about August the s
10th. Begin this-later dusting when t
the squares show ten per cent infec
tion. Try to keep your field infection
down to fifteen per cent. Possibly a
200 pound barrell of Calcium Arsen
ate would take care of about six
acres with bud dusting and about
eight acres without bud dusting.
The Infected Squares. | ^
The infected squares contain one
or more weevil worms. An infected
square remains on the cotton plant j g
about eleven days and then falls to
the ground, and eleven days later J fc
from the fallen square emerges the
.new born weevil. Pick up and burn
twice a week all infected squares on
the ground, using Boll Weevil De
stroyer (price $1.25 postpaid), an
iron stick with prongs which spear
the square and does the work of three 11
or four men. Where labor is plentiful
use not only the Boll Weevil De-|j
.stroyer on fallen squares, but go also
through the field, bending the plants 11
and picking off from same all the in
fected squares-these look dead and J.j
pale and not green.
Cultivate all i cotton rows after
-weevils infest squares twice a week
with a sweep. By no means ever lay
by your cotton but keep up cultiva
tion twice a week until August. In
cultivating, tie at each end of single
tree, two jute sacks, which, in the
plowing strike the cotton and cause
the weevils to fall upon the ground
-the sweep covering up both weevils
and infected squares.
- Close Spacing.
Space your cotton a hoe's width
in the row, one stalk to the hill (even
four inches in the row does not hunr)
thin out late when plants are six or
eight inches high. This produces early
cotton and on the main stem and
eliminates the later producing, big
shadowing, vegetative lower limbs.
Distance between rows should be thir
ty to thirty-six inches. Cultivate eight
acers to the plow.
Turning Cotton Under.
About October the fifteenth be
fore irost time, turn under all cot
ton stalks, or if large, cut out and
burn. This kills per acre eight to fif
teen thousand weevils and prevents
? Calcium Arsenate.
Calcium Arsenate is about ten
cents a pound cheaper than a year
ago. It is put up in two hundred
pound barrels. The usual trade price
today is ten barrels, one ton, 14
cents; five barrels at 14 1-2 cents;
one or two barreds at 15 cents; 100
pound barrels at 16 cents; less
amounts, 17 cents per pound-N. L.

Magic of Caruso's Voice Gone.
To those who have never heard him

"It 'S the Christian duty of this
country without further delay to join

comes, it will be the saddest hour in ?

Do you wish the world were better?
Let me tell you what to do.
Set a watch upon your actions, keep
them always straight and true;
Rid your mind of selfish motives, let
your thoughts be clean and high;
You can make a little Eden of the
sphere you occupy.
Do you wish the world were wiser?
Well, suppose you make a start
By accumulating wisdom in the
scrapbook of your heart.
Do not waste one page on folly; live
to leam and learn to live, ;
If you want to give men knowledge,
you must get it ere you give.
Do you wish'the world were happy?
Then remember day by day
lust to scatter seeds of kind.iess as
you pass along the way;
?or the pleasure of the many may
ofttimes be traced to one,
^s the hand that plants the acorn
shelters armies from the sun.
