"ill time of peace prepare for war"

In international negotiations just

the colton boll weevil, says tho Uni
ted Stales Department of Agricul

hurt tho farmer moro than it hurts
tho weevil, and the only way to be
sure of getting an "even break" with
tho weevil is to be supplied in ad

Cond, director of tho department's
boll weevil laboratory, "that many
farmers fall to realize their danger
early enough, and then start making
dosperato efforts to poison after the
Infestation has become very heavy.
They scurry around trying to get cal
cium arsonnto and dusting machin
ery, and nearly always there ls con
siderable delny. Even when they get
the poison and the machinery, it is
extremely dllhcult to control weevil
infestation after it becomes sovore.
There aro so many weevil stuges
present In the squares and bolls that
some of them como out every day
and poison must he kept constantly
on the plants If any good is to he
done by it. This very greatly in
creases the expense of poisoning.
Then, if there comes even a short
spell of rainy weather, such control

farmer has gone to heavy expense for
nothing. Wo advise all cotton plant
ors to be extremely careful about
starting lalo season poisoning. In a

most favorable conditions. The only

FATAL PLUNGE FOR AVIATOR.
Hotly Charred Hoyond Recognition.
\\ ?is on Grmluution Flight.
Richmond, Va., May 81.-As his
loved ones watched him perform
stunts in tho air, bolleving, but not
positive that it was he, and before
their horrified gaze, Second Lieut.
(William Austin Sydnor, Jr., aged 22,
United States army aviator, plunged
700 feet to earth In an airplane that
had become unmanageable, within
sight of his uncle, Eugene H. Sydnor,
at West Hampton, this afternoon,
and was probably instantly killed.
In its descent tho plane, which,
according to oyo witnesses, was act
ing erratically, dove into two cedar
saplings, ono of which was snapped
off, tho other uprooted.
'JmmetVia^ely (after striking tho
second tree tho careening plane was
seen to emit a thin spiral of black
or blue smoko, and, a few seconds
later, struck tho ground with a thud
that was heard at tho Country Club
and tho University of Richmond
grounds at West Hampton, both a
considerable distance away.
Divining from tho unusual antics
of tho plane that something was
amiss, abd fearful that tho aviator
would bo unnblo to right the ma
chine before lt reached the ground,
scores who were witnessing tho
stunts of young Sydnor in mid-air,
hastened to tho Held In which lt was
apparent the machine would land.
Refore tho first of thoso spectators
could reach the scene the plano had
struck tho ground, and almost im
mediately a burst of flame Was seeiv.
By tho Hmo aid had arrived tho ma
chine was a mass of flames and tho
body of tho youthful flier, who was
motionolss and- probably already
dead, rapidly was being consumed
