. Alfalfa Growers.
Down near Fair Play and South
Union three nice Holds of alfalfa are
seen on thc farms of L. B, Marett,
Geo. Davis and W. F. Casey. Mr.
Marett started his alfalfa last fall,
and so far this season has already
made two cuttings. Ho prepared tho
Sand ahead, (however, hy turning
under some legumes and giving the
soil more humus, and also liming it
well. Mr. Casey started his alfalfa
in tho fall of 1020, while Mr. Davis
started his nbottt this time or earlier.
Several other farmers contemplate
sowing an acre or a few acres this
fall. Among these are Marett Farm
and Seed Company, J. ll. M. Whit
miro and Coke S. Campbell. Thoso
who contemplate sowing should bear
in mind that even tho very best land
we havo is nono too good for "the
king of legumes," and our best land
needs ono or two sowings with leg
umes and turning thom all undor
and liming with at least four tons
per acre of ground limestone before
the fields aro ready to sow.
There ls no better crop grown than
alfalfa, and no richer feed, nor eas
ier to handle. It also helps the far
mer to get out of the fodder busi
ness, which is something worth your
while. It also gives variety to tho
feeding, which is appreciated by the
livestock.
Sow your best land now In peas or
velv?t beans to turn under ahead of
alfalfa If you Intend sowing.

Tho extension service ?f Clemson
College has recently sent out several
new bulletins which should be of In
terest to Oconeo farmers.
Our friend, N. ID. Winters, "tho
Billy Sunday of Agriculture," who ls
Just back from Cornell University,
and who will soon bo with us again,
has written a bulletin on his great
subject,' "Soil Building, or Economi
cal Crop Production." Other good
bulletins available are "The Sweet
Potato Industry," "Permanent iPns
ture8" and "C'ire and Handling of
Cream for Shipment." Each of theso
four bulletins will havo a place on
tho farm In diversified agriculture
which tho boll weevil ls now bring
ing along with him.
"Eventually-WHY NOT NOW?"
Writo a card to tho county agent
and he will send the bulletins re
quested, or any available Informa
tion.
What Must I Do?
"Tho weevils ero eating me up
What must I do?" This has boen re
ceived several times during the past
weok. No proscription or formula is
known whereby tho mighty boll wee
vil may bo banished nt will.
Tho fight against the boll weevil
starts in tho fall with an early cloan
up of tho cotton flqlds, early prepar
ation of the soil, securing A GOOD
STAND ns early as possible, of a
good variety, intelligently fertilized,
and FR IO Qi MD.NT SHALLOW CULTI
VATION, practiced on until thc crop
ls practically made. Tho oarly wee
vils and early punctured squares
should be picked and dostroyed, pro
vided this can bo dono with cheap
'labor, WITHOUT STOPPING THE
PROPER CULTIVATION. No nitrato
of soda .or other fertiliser should bo
applied" AFTER squares havo begun
to put on.

poisoning, it is recommended that
calcium arsenate of proper specifica
tions he put on in the dust form, ac
cording to tho proper schedule as
outlined in Circular 1G2 of the U. S.
Department of Agriculture. Several
farmers have already purchased ma
chines of tho proper type and will
try tho dusting method this season.
Among those who aro trying tho
dusting method this year are Marett
Seed and Farm Co., W. L. Vernor, J.
hi Kell, S. L. Brown, G. W. Gign
Illiat, and probably others. Moro will
bo known of results to expect by tho
next season. Unless dusting is pro
perly done, it should not ho attempt
ed. Tho weather also plays an im
portant part in the boll weevil fight,
but we cannot control the weather.
The use of poison has not yet pass
ed tho experimental stage, and is,
therefdre, not recommended as ia
"cure-all," but where cotton has been
dusted properly, good results have
been shown.
Weevils Are Found,
Genuine boll weevils, in rather
large numbers, have been found in
the past week In several fields near
Fair Play. In practically all cases
tho largest number wero found in
stumpy fields and where woods were
not far away. Some twenty weevils
were found in about fifteen minutes
by four people Iii one instance-and
this in a field where some sixty had
been found two days before.
Weevils were also found in the
Oconoe Creek section, Ne'w Hope and
around Oak Grove.
.In some cases the young squares
were being punctured and eggs laid
therein. Much depends on whether
July ls wet or dry In the matter of
damage. Tho farmers aro planning
to wage a fight through rapid culti
vation as well as by picking tho
early weevils and enrly punctured
squares between times.
Order Queens for Bees.
A largo number of farmers have
had their old box gums replaced this
year with the modern movable frame
hives. Much profit wns obtained last
year through tho uso of this modern
hive by Davis Martin, of Oakway.
This year Geo. M. Ansel, of Walhalla,
had two old gums transferred to one
modern/hive early in May, and in
about four or fivo weeks the brood
chamber was full of workers and a
super of honey conta'nlng forty
pounds removed and anothor sapor
added.
Many of 'hose who have transfer
red their heos to these modern hives
will now /want to reqi0oen these
hives with a good three-handed Ital
ian queen. Those who wish to pur
chase queens will ploaso send In or
ders now, enclosing check for amount
of order at one dollar per queen, tho
checks hoing made payable to the
"County Agent's Pee Account," Hank
of .Walhalla. Mr. Provost, heo keep

?0^ra>BR1N<3 ULTIMATE RESULT
County Agent Briggs Does Not En
dorso Sweetened Poisons. ; {
Editor Keowee Courier:
In reference to the articles in last
week's paper concerning tho uso of
a mixturo of molasss and calcium
arsenate for the control of the boll
weevil, I will say that 1, personally,
do not recommend it, basing my
opinion on ihe information I have
been able to get on the subject.
The only PROFITABLE results so
far secured in carefully conducted
tests by both Federal nnd State agen
cies were secured by tho use of cal
oium arsenate in the dust form, pro
perly applied.
The information that I have is that
the molasses mixture and other
sweetened poisons have been tried all
?along the route from Texas eastward j
in newly Infested territory, and that!
results have not been gratifying
when it came to. weighing. up the
seed cotton RESULTING FROR! the
MOLASSES-ARSENATE treatment.
.In Oeorgia last season about this
time there was much to hear about
this treatment, but I have not heard
much ot it since.
The Greenville county agent, A.?L
Chapman, a native of Mississippi,
who recently returned from a visit
to his State, issued a statement in
the Greenville News recently to the
effect that the farmers out there
were doing some dusting with cal
cium arsenate, and were trying to
rush the cotton along with good cul
tural methods, which methods were
found to be more effective than the
j molasses-arsennte treatment.
' . Geo. R. Briggs, County Agent. |
P.S.-I enclose a now information
card on boll weevil control, Just re
ceived.
Boll Weevil Control in 1022.
1. Cultivate frequently and shal
low to keep down weeds.
2. Weevils may be picked to ad
vantage before squares appear when-]
ever cheap labor that costs practi- j
cally nothing in cash is available, and
provided the picking is done with
utmost care.
3. Square collecting may be help
ful where cheap labor is available,
beginning ten days after first bloom
and picking every infested square on
the ground and on the plants every
five days.
4. The following are the condi
tions under which poisoning may be
expected to be profitable: (a) On
high yielding land; (b) Where wee
vil infestation is heavy; (c) The use
of an approved dusting ma
chine, capable of covering the acre
age for tho application, according to
an approved plan, of calcium arsen
ate meeting tho government specifi
cations; (d) Under reasonably fa
vorable weather conditions.
Information in regard to machines
and calcium arsonato may be ob
? tallied from tho county agents,
j The only profitable results so far
secured in carefully conducted tests
by Federal and State agencies were
secured by the use of calcium arsen
ate In dust form, properly applied,
j 'Poison only when tho alf is calm
; and thc plants aro moist, using from
' five to seven pounds per acre for
1 each application. When weevils aro
abundant, when fruiting of cotton
? biggins, one application may he made
Int that time. Use no calcium arsen
ate that has not been examined hy
I Federal or.Slato authorities and pro
' nounccd satisfactory. Tho next ap
plication should be mnde when tho
j weevils have punctured from ten to
! fifteen per cent of tho squares, fol
lowed by two additional applications
! four days apart. Infestation counts
. shodld be made frequently and can
i bo made by any farmer who follows
tho simple directions furnished upon
j application. The object is to koop the
i cotton thoroughly dusted until the
?weevils are under control. This may
I require a varying number of appllca
I tions of poison, depending on tho sea
I son and other conditions. If weevils
j should become sufficiently numerous
! to severely Injure the young bolls,
one or two moro applications late in
j the season should be made.
I In case of a heavy rain within 24
?hours after dusting, tho application
! should be repented immediately. Al
. ways a carefully selected plot of cpt
I ton should be left unpolsoned for
. comparison with tho adjoining pol
I soned tract. This will help to deter
? mino how much tho yield was In
creased by poisoning.
5. Rush picking and plow under
stalks as early as practicable
fi. Follow cotton with a cover
crop.
7. Practice clean fnrmlng in order
j to destroy most of the pinces that of
! fer shelter to tho boll woovll during
! tho winter.
SUGG8ES?TON AS TO PLATFORM.
Editor Keowee Courier:
Will you allow me spneo In your
1 paper for a few words to tho voters
i of Oconoo county?
j As this is oloctlon year, and wo
j have two legislators and other offi
i cers to elect, I would Uko to suggest
la platform that a man must endorse
boforo I can vote for him, and, If lt
is ncceptablo, have our county cam
paign put it before the candidates at
the first campaign meeting:
To tho county officors: Are you
willing to serve tho county for tho
salary your offlco paid prior to 1918?
To tho legislators: Aro you will
ing to serve for the remuneration of
$200 por session? (This, I under
let and, ls tho amount that has al
? ways boon paid until a fow years
?ago, and now it is $400.) Will you
j promise'not to raise nay salarlos
?during your term of office? will you
. reduco tho salaries of all tho hold
overs who have boon raised slneo
their election to said oifices? Will
you work and volo for economy

was 81 years of ago.
Death struck down the aged finan
cier just as his tomb was nearing
