.f. COUNTY AGENTS NOTES. *
/Watch* for Damaged Square?.
Practically, all cotton ia now put
ting on squares rapidly, and on a
number of farms visited recently the
weevil is puncturing squares as if he
means real business. Some farmers
said they could not find the weevils,
and were desperately searching for
the old weevils and paying little at
tention to the punctured squares.
Now is the time to start a vigor
ous war on tho squares that have
fallen, and those hanging on and
"flaring out," showing the little mark
of the sealed-up egg puncture. Time
is practically wasted now looking for
adult weevils, as the larger the cot
ton plant the harder lt ls to finch
them. The squares are now easier
to find, and the damaged ones should
be collected aud destroyed every five
days-IF IT CAN BE DONE CHEAP
LY AND WITHOUT STOPPING CUL
TIVATION. Cultivation ls considered
more Important in the old weevil ter
ritory, and no other work should
keep the plow from stirring the sur
face between the cotton rows AT
LEAST ONCE A WEEK AND SOME
TIMES TWICE A WEEK.
'Farmers should not got disheart
oned and completely give up. Put up
a stiff fight, and If the weather in
July and August is rather dry the
damage may not be so great.
Information Cards on WcevU
Information Card No. 22 of the
Extension Service on Boll Weevil
Control In 1922" Is now available at
the banks of the county, and every
farmer growing cotton should get one
of these cards.
The most reliable information ob
tainable on the boll weevil ls to be
found in Farmers' Bulletin 1262,
"The Boll Weevil Problem," recently
issued from the U. S. Department of
Agriculture. The county agent has
several hundred more copies on hand
and will be glad to supply any per
son on request.
Will Poison on Big Scale.
The Marett Farm and Seed Com
pany of Westminster ,are starting l|his
week to poisoning the weevil in ear
nest. They have two large "Dosch"
dusting machines, and will use one
or two hand dusters also. The large
dusters are pulled by one mule, one
man walking behind the duster, help
ing support the duster on one wheel
by means of two handles.
These are the only large dusting
mnchiues that will be used, so far as
the county agent knows, as the ma
chine ordered by W. L. Vorner can
not be supplied by the manufactur
ers In time to start right, so that
only a smnll hand duster will be used.
In an experiment to see the re
sults of poisoning lt Is very import
ant to see that the plot left UN
TREATED Is of the same percentage
of INFESTATION as the plot treated
at tho time the poisoning commenced.
The only way to do this Is to COUNT
100 squares in each corner and cen
ter of both treated and untreated
fields and compare the percentage
of punctured squares. Otherwise the
untreated field may be lightly in
fested to begin with.

Railway executives were un*mt

the strike would have little effect on
the operation of their roads, and at
the same time assorted that any move

B. M. Jewell, president of tho rail

Federation of Labor, who yesterday
refused to appear at a Federal in

that the only basis for a settlement
was for the roads to agree not to

YOUTH DROWNS IN RIVER.

McCormick;, S. C., July 2.-Albert
Freeland, white, the eighteen-year
old ?on bf Mr. and Mrs. J. M. C. Free
land, of Plum Branch, was drowned
about 4 o'clock this afternoon while
in bathing with a number of his
chums In the Savannah river at the
old Ferguson Ferry, about four miles
from Plum Branch. The young man,
in company with several of his young
f: lends, had walked about three
miles to the river to go swimming,
and ho made no outward sign of his
plight when drowning. He was swim
ming in water very little over his
head and was close by one of his
friends, whom he caught as he was
sinking, but liio friend, thinking that
the drowning boy was only diving
and playing, made no effort to save
The young man nearest Freeland
stated that he thought Freeland was
almost exhausted, and that he also
came near being drowned.
The water at this point is very
swift, and although relatives and
friends wore soon notified, and the
river for some distance down had
been searched, at dark to-night the
body of the drowned young man had
not boen found, and It ls thought
that it was carried on down" the river.
Ferguson Ferry at this place has
been abandoned for some years as a
ferry, and the road loading to the
lauding has roached such a stago
that travel upon it is almost Impos
sible, and this accounts for the party
of searchers not reaching the scene
sooner. The searching party will
continue their efforts to locate the
