BOLL WEEVIL POISONING, 1022.
Prof. Conradl, of clemson, Gives Out
Plan that Will Benefit AH.
Poisoning cotton with calcium or
eenate may he expectod to pay
1. When used on high yielding
2. When the weevil infestation is
3. When the poison ls properly
applied, according to tl correct sched
4. When woather conditions aro
reasonably favorable for poisoning.
Farmers planning to poison this
sonson should secure a copy of Cir
cular 16f. II S. Department of Agri
culture, "Poisoning tho Cotton boll j
Weevil/' which may be obtained
from tho Extension'Service, Clemson
College; the Delta Laboratory, Tal
lulah, La., or tho U. S. Department
of Agriculture, Washington, D. C. ad
vises Prof. A. ?P. Conradl, entomolo
gist. The circular contains loss than
I bree pages of print, but the informa
tion is to tho point, and no farmer
should undertake poisoning before
studying lt and making sure that ho
understands thoroughly every step
In the operation. Farmers aro cau
tioned that poisoning is a serious
and complicated operation, and timi
no one should ndertake lt unless he
has determined to do it correctly.
Many failures result from Improper j
application, due to the lack of ef
fort on tho part ol* thc farmer to in
Xo one Should he disappointed al j
failure the llrst year, because poison
ing must be learned just as we have
had to learn other processes in farm
ing. Those having had no experience
are cautioned to go oasy and not
undertake too much the first season.
Poisoning, like most farm operations,
is not fool-proof. While lt has beon
demonstra'jd that the weevil can be
poisoned profitably with proper meth
ods and machines and under favor
able weather conditions for poison
ing, the farmer is also cautioned Mint
unfavorable conditions and Improper
methods will undoubtedly cause com
Regardless of how much poisoning
the farmer intends to do, soil build
ing should be kept up vigorously.
Any successful poisoning program ls
dependent on high yielding land.
lt ls no more expensive to poison an
acre of high-yielding land than to
r?o'"nr -i T.^r- nf poor land

TEXT.-Let us therefore come boldly
unto the thron? of grace, that we may j
obtain mercy, and And grace to help In
time of need.-Heb. 4:11
Suppose oar newspapers tomorrow
printed a full page ad with these wordB
In bold headline,
HELP IN TIMK
OF NEED; then
. vent ou to explain
thnt this great
created a bureau
of help. Offices
were to be opened
in the centers ot
and s iii a 11, to
which every needy
bring his problems. Help of every
description would bo offered; old age
pensioned ; heuds of families with in
sufficient Income given a grant for tho
maintenance and education of the
children ; widowed mothers paid n
stated Income ; orphaned children
would have equal chance with those
in well salaried homes; the weak
would be protected ; the crushing load
of the oppressed lifted ; every effort
made to lighten the burden Of the
tolling, struggling unisses. What do
you suppose would be the experience
of such a bureau? Would lt do any
business? I ether words, do men and
women in this great land need help?
Have they any problems? If ever liiere
was u time when such a bureau worild
be rushed, it ls now.
This is the very offer that God an
nounced long ago, In the text. Ho
has offered help in time of need. 1
wonder how many of the readers ot
this sermon have ever availed them
selves cf God's offer and have secured
real, practical, timely help In some
hour of need. Tho Apostle Paul, who
wrote these words, had tested them
fully. We learn this from the catalog
of his experiences In II Corinthians
ll :23-28 and again In the sixth chapter
of the same epistle, verses 4-10. He
wroto to the Philippians in a slmllaf
strain : "I know both how ... to
abound and to suffer need." We could
have no doubt that he received help
In tills variety of experiences, for in
Acts 20:22 be declares, "Having there
fore obtained help of God, I continue
unto this day," and again in Phil. 4:19
he asserts that God will supply oil
our needs,1 according to His riches in
glory by Christ Jesus.. The Apostle
Paul found u source o? help to Which
he i v tle > every needy soul fur a share
In the good things so freely ned folly
supplied. What welcome news to
struggling, perplexed mortals ls an
nounced in mis textl
First, there ls a PLACE that offers
help. This suggests the practical
not simply advice given based on
beautiful theories, but tangible help
for life's perplexities. Just as real as
the need, ls the help offered.
Second, thnt place ls a THRONE. A
throne ls symbol leal of wisdom and
power. Furthermore, a throne ls the
most carefully guarded place In the
world of men. It ls the seat of au*
thorlty of the king, whose presence
ls august und fearful; to enter which,
unbidden, ls death. Yet we are in?
vited to come boldly to the throne of
the text, to find help In time of need.
Third, It is a THRONE OF GRACE.
Ah, that matchless word, "grace,"
makes all the difference. Why ls lt
a throne of grace? Because upon
lt ls not only the King, but a High
Priest, who has mode propitiation for
sinners, reconciling them, as enemies,
unto God and making lt possible for
them to be admitted to the secret place
of the Most High. It ls the presence
on the throne of the Ono wdio offered
a sufficient and satisfactory sacrifice
of Himself for sin, that turns it from
a habitation of justice and Judgment
Into n household of grace. Here we
may come, no longer ns suppliant
citizens of the realm, but as rightful
children of ihe Father's heart.
Last of ntl : How do W0 come?
There ls only one entrance to the
throne room; lt ls by the way of peti
tion. So there is only one way to tho
throne of grace, that ls by the beauti
ful gate of prayer. Has prayer any
value? "For -be that cometh to God
must believe that He ls. and that He
ls the rewarder of them that diligent
ly seek Him." Is prayer practical?
Ask those who frequent the throne.
Has God not said. "If ye then being
evil know how to give good gifts un
to your children, how much more shall
your Father, which ls In heaven, glvo
good things to them thnt ask Him."
Prayer may fail. God cnn never rall.
IIa will answer every prayer. "Let
us come boldly."
Tho Christian Ministry.
The Christ Inn ministry was set up
In those ancient ?lays when the New
Testament was being written. With
nil the changes of time and circum
stance, With all Its own Infinite va
riety of functions, that ministry ls still
essentially whnt lt was then, meant
for a great missionary Institution.
The reason why lt exists ls. to spread
light to strengthen and build up
goodness, to carry on tho never-ending
war against wrong and evil and degen
eracy. Thnt astonishing work which
we rend Of In the Acts, which we seo
going rm In the Epistles of St, Paul,
that III the work which must go on
now. toMcli must go on In every nge,
If the world ls to he sought and
gained for Christ.-R. W. Church.

SKELETONS FOUND IN A CAVE
In Tciuiesso Number Approximntoly
'Bristol, Va.-Tenn., Jan. 25.-Dis
covery of approximately 800 human
skeletons in a cave in the mountains,
about 15 miles from Bristol, was
made to-day by Prof. Henry Wood
man, of Bristol, who made an Inspec
tion of tho cave at the invitation of
An opening which runs 40 feet
straight down in the earth was found
several days ago 'by people living in
I that section. Upon making investi
gation' they found several human
skulls. The skulls were brought to
Bristol and newspaper men and col
lege professors were asked to enter
and inspect the interior of tho open
Upon descending the tunnel by
means of a rope Prof. Woodman
found a heap of human bones 30 feet
high and a'bout 80 feet wide. Indian
hatchets and beads wero also found.
The cave has several tunnels reach
ing off on the side and is in the shape
of a huge crevice in the earth. Tho
bones wore partly covered over by
earth,which is thought to have fallen
in from tho opening above. The peak
of the heap ls directly under the en
trance, and this lends to the belief
that the Indians throw their dead in
to the cavity.
Tho heap ls cone-shaped and con
tains an assortment of every bone iii
the human body. Prof. Woodman de
clares that experiments show that
some of the bones have been In the
cave for about a thousand years. A
number of exports and archaelogists
are planning to spond a night in the
cavo to continue tho Investigation.
Thb cavo Is located in a spot In tho
mountains almost Inaccessible.
