A Bi; Little Enterprise,
j The-little town of Swansea, Le-*

Iher things the Swansea Crate and j

?ads of barrels and declines to ac
jpt further orders for this season.

sweet gum and 'black gum,
ito very useful products. Besides

Weevil Poisoning Again.
'Clemson College, April 24.-Every
day numerous inquiries are received
at Clemson College in regard to one
or bother of the numerous devices for
attaching to pU>ws for applying li
quid poison, for brushing the cotton
to knock the weevil from' the plants,
for attracting weevils to light, etc.,
The man with new devices for boll
weevil control has been ever-present
in the wake of the weevil during the
last twenty years. Many of these de
vices represent patriotic and con
scientious effort, while in some cases
the motive is purely selfish.
In many cases' at least the man
who gets up the device has no knowl
edge whatever of the history of boll
weevil control and is. not aware that
his plans have been, tried and tested
by,Federal and State experts and re-?
presentative farmers for a' number
of years and found unsatisfactory.
He fails to realize that the people of
other states are just as intelligent
and clever as he is and that many of.
his ideas have been thrashed to a
frazzle long before they occurred" to
In making recommendations7 or
statements regarding such matters
we are guided . by the number of
pounds of seed cotton that -any given
device has been able_to add profit
ably to the cotton crop; we recognize
only the results of carefully conduc
ted tests and we can not base our
recommendations on guess work,
says Prof. A. F. Conradi, Entomolo
gist; and in answer to the numerous
inquiries we repeat that wherever one
has decided to poison we recommend
the use of calcium arsenate as a dust,
with properly constructed machines,
according to a proper schedule.
This recommendation is based on
the fact that we have no evidence
where profitable-results were secured
in carefully conducted tests by other
.than the dusting method. We do say
that where one dusts he will secure
profitable results, because not by any
means 'did all farmers that dusted
secure profitable results in 1921, but i
in carefully conducted tests by ex
perts under the supervision of. Fed-,
eral and State ? officials, wherever
profit was securel it was secured by
the dusting machine method.
We have prepared an office letter
entitled "Poisoning in 1922" to accom
pany Circular 162 of the Federal
.Government, and these are available
for distribution by the- Extension
