2. "Day lt off in rows 12 feet apart
and plant your cotton seed In Decem
3. "When your colton comes up,
thin it to ono stalk tn a hill, 2!l feet
4. "Spray each stalk twlco a day

5. "Cover your cotton with mos
quito netting when it. is two weeks
old, this notting to bo stretched over
6. "Spread 'tanglofoot' between all
cotton rows and roplaco it every day.
7. "Dust tho following mixture on
your cotton twico a day: Epsom sf.'*s,
calomel, cream of wheat, and tho
white of an ogg.
8. "Ilavo two hired hands for every
nero in cultivation. Furnish them
with harbor's twoozors to ho used in
pinching the heads off of any boll
weevils which show up.
9. "if any of tho bolls should get
punctured, havo tho punctures vul

10. "Begin picking your cotton in

A delay in the work may be occa
