AGAIN AS TO WEEVIL POISONING
Clomosu Receiving Many inquiries
Concerning Poisoning Devices.
Clemson College, April 28-'Every
day numerous Incluirles aro received
nt Clemson College in regard to ono
cr other of tho numerous dovlces for
attaching to plows for applying li
quid poison, for brushing tho cotton
to knock tho weevil from tho plants,
for attracting weevils to light, otc. I
Tho man with new devices for boll
V/eevil control has been over-present
In tho wake of the weevil durirg tho
last twenty years. Many of the e
vices represent patriotic and consci
entious effort, while in some cases
the motive is purely selfish.
In many cases at least tho man
who gola up tho devices has no
knowledge whatever of tho history
of boll weevil control, and is not
aware thal lils plans havo been tried
and tested by Federal and'State ex
perts and representativo farmers for
a number of years, and found unsat
isfactory, lie falls to .realize that tho
people of other States aro just as In
telligent and clever as ho is, and that
many of his Ideas have been thresh
ed lo a frazzle long before they oc
curred to him.
In making recommendations or
statements regarding stielt matters
wo are guided by tho number of
pounds ol* seotl colton thal any given
dovice lias been able lo add profita
bly lo tho colton crop. Wo recognize
only the results of carefully conduct
en tests, and wo cannot base our rec
ommendations on guess work, says
Prof. A. K. i'd!.radi, entomologist;
and in answer to tho numerous In
quirios wo repeat thal wherever one'
has decided to poison we rccommond
tho use of calcium arsenate as a
?lust, witii properly constructed ma
chines, according to il proper sched
This recommendation is based on
tho fact that wo have no evidence
where prolltablo results were secured
Ju carefully conducted tests by other
than dusting method. Wo do not say
that where ono dusts lie will secure
prolltablo results, bera uso not by any
moans did all the farmers that dust
ed securo prolltablo results in 102',
but in carefully conducted tests by
experts, under tho supervision of
Federal and State olllcials, wherever
profit was secured it was secured by
tho dusting method.
Wo have prepared an oillco letter
on ti tied "Poisoning in l!i22," to ac
company Circular IG 2 of the Federal
government, and theso are available
for distribution by the Extension
Service, Clemson College, S. C.

ol' Greenwood-On II Spiro.
Greenwood, April 22.-Even tho
honest plow has become aa agency
for evil, local police officers declaro,
and i ho police aro now wondering
whether a mule and plow, used for
the uncovering of liquor, can ho con
fiscated under tho South Carolina
Thc problem all began when Enoch
Olegg, nogro, uncovered a liquid
treasure trove while plowing a va
cant lot. Enoch picked up a jar and
heard tho tantalizing gurgle and
swish, took a sniff, winked at his
drowsy mule, and drank deeply. Po
lice ofllcers declare that when ho
dropped the jar in tho furrow, only
Several hours hitor tho plowman
was arrested in a negro section and
was charged with disturbing tho
peace with hilarity and song. Ho
solemnly asserted to the arresting
officers that he was sound asleep.
The ofllcers think they know when a
man's asleep, and Enoch drew a Uno
of $ 1 0 the next day in the recorder's
And yet many who have hoard tho
story have Inquired wistfully whe
ther lhere is any laud left unplowed
in the vicinity of Enoch's discovery,
and some have confessed that cash
registers and other implements of
hilliness would willingly be beaten
Into plowshares If there ls much of
tho burled treasure loft."
