It seems that the bridge over Con
cross creek, between Westminster
and Seneca, ls the scene of a series
of accidents. One day last week the
air tank used in helping put up the
bridge, blew up. It was lucky that
no one was near at the time. The
tank was destroyed and another ha?
to be placed in its stead.

Marlboro Has Drive.
All records in the co-operative
marketing campaign in this state
were smashed last week by Marlboro
county, when In six days the com
mitteemen landed contracts for Iii
032 bales. Anderson county is pre1
paring for a heavy sign-up on thi
marketing contract as soon as thoir
sign-up drive begins, according to
S. 'M. Byars, County Agent, who has
stated that four leading farmers ol'
Anderson county have signed the
Contract, and that a campaign ol
vigor is planned.
A sign-up day will soon be held fn
Oconee county with tho co-operation
of the local committeemen appointed
last week, and with tho aid of other
signers who are interested.
In the meantime, those who have
not studied the contract or Utera;
ture concerning tho co-operative
marketing of cotton should do so by
getting in touch with the County
Campaign Director, the County
Agent or local,committeemen. Per<
sons who are not yet convinced of
the absolute soundness of tho move
ment should get in touch with Carl
Williams, president of the Cotton
Growers' Association at Oklahoma
City, Okla. Or else they should com
munlcato with Dr. Clarence Poe, ed
itor of the Progressive Farmer, at
Raleigh, N. C. Th? Atlanta Journal

BoU Weevils ia 108?.
A recent report from Dr. Goad, V?\
expert in charge of the laboratory of
the U. S. Department of Agriculture
at Tallulah.Ala., states that the larg:
est number of boll Weevils In history
have withstood the winter, accordr
lng to experiments conducted there.
At fifteen selected points the moss
from trees was gathered and exam
ined, with the result that 127 live
weevils per ton of moss were found,
with only 2.2 dead weevils per ton
found. <Last year 22 live weevils
were found and 26 dead per ton. Ex
periments with cages placed over hi
bernation material In the fields show
ed a large number surviving also.
The spring ' when the smallest
number survived, according to the
experiments, was the spring of 1918,
when only 1.7 live weevll3 per ton
of moss were found, and 18.9 dead
weevils.
Now, of course, condition? in Oco
nee county are different from con
dition? in the delta of Louisiana as
far as winter survival of weevils is
concerned. And another great factor
will be the dryness or wetness of
the summer. A very dry ,sdmtner
will tend to offset great dam?ge,
while a wet summer will increase
damage. Even though the figures
do.not truly represent Oconee coun
ty, they signify very strongly that it
will be folly to prepare to plant a
large acreage to cotton. A conser
vative acreage that can be well han
dled and rushed along seems to be
the safest way to proceed.
Prof. Conrad!, Entomologist ai
Clemson, will give out information
at an early dato regarding local con
ditions. Oeo. R. Briggs,
