.SI KC CURES" FOR WEEVILS.
Wily Georgia manufacturers of
all sorts of punk "sure death to boll
weevils" tell the farmers to use tho
preparations they put up TO SELL,
and "make more cotton than you
ever made before." When you seo
th eso boll weevil "sure cures" ad
vertised, just think tho matter over
n bit. Why don't the Georgia farm
ers use these commercial "sure
cures" and "raise moro cotton than
ever liefere "
Hore are some of the reports, by
counties, issued last week, on tho
crop conditions on the other sido of
"Jasper County-Indicated yield,
"Madison County-Weather con
ditions cloudy and rainy, favoring
"Newton County-Twice as many
weevils, compared with last year.
"Putnam County--Weevils in ev
ery bold. Estimate 100 huies for
county against IS,OOO before weevils
c n me.
"Lincoln County--Crop very late
Too much rain.
"Uni Hill County- Worst shed
ding I oversaw. Still raining.
"Wilkes County-This county will
not make 1,000 halos, against 8,000
last year and 28,000 In 1920."
ir, would seem that tho Georgia
commercial " sure cures for weevils"
must be made more for "a killing"
among South Carolina suckers than
t.) kill we,.vils in the Kmplro State
ot tho South.
At any rate, don't grab tho whole
bait when ?? is again thrown out. Il
will likely bo tried In tho early spring
again. Let tho Georgia weevil con

money ?i, those "boll weovil sun
