COTTON BOLL WEEVIL
VUSIT BE FOUGHT BEFORE IT IS
Only s Few Years Separates Far
mers of this State From the Bread
?1 Pest. a
President Ohas. S. Barrett, of the
Farmer's Union has Just issued ah
address to the farmers concerning the
l?pp poaching boll weevil. As he says
this pest will reach Georgia probably
in 1.912 and then South Carolina will
fee] its presence the next year. This
in?jct cuts down the cotton crop be
tween one-half and one-third In th>
aecdons where it flourishes. Now is
the time for the farmers of South
?Oat olina aftd Georgia to band togeth
er in an effort to defend their lands.
It will not be fighting an unknown
foe, for even the remedies have been
dis x>vered. The ilarmers of the eas
tern cotton belt can reap aH the aid
Chit the western farmers have dis
covered after years of constant war
faie against the pest. The remedial
measures to be taken against the
toll weevil can be obtained from the
Stiite agricultural station or from the
"United States Department of Agri
culture. * Every farmer should pre
pare for the hght, and get his lands
In the best possible shape. Presi
de it Barrett's address follows:
Reliable and non-alarmist experts
calculate the cotton boll-weevil will
cover the entire cotton belt within
five years. It will probably be in
Georgia in the Fall of 1912, perhaps
The ostrich-bead-in-the-sand poli
cy is foolish, almost to the point of
criminality. It is better to face facts
now than to smger the penalty later.
Southwestern cotton states have,
by the loss of many million dollars,
discovered the most feasible fethods
.Jret devised for combatting the boll
?w<?evil. Their experience is ours for
Unless the portion of the Cotton
Belt, as yet untouched by the boll
wsevil takes steps in, time the ad-1
?wet of this Insect is going to pro
duce temporary panic by wholly de
ranging cotton culture, as yet the
financial backbone of the Southern
I deem it my duty to Issue thess
plain warnings and to urge every far
? m.er In the territory likely to be af
fected to go about putting up defenses
this year and without delay.
The detail remedies will be furnish
ed you by your state agricultural de
partments, experiment stations, or.
the federal department of agricul
ture. Roughly speaking, they are.
few and simple. They consist in us
ing an early maturing variety of
cotton, that the crop may be gather
ed before the weevil has attained its
greatest power for damage; inten
sive cultivation, which will produce
a maximum fiber to the acre; burn
ing over of old fields after the crop
Is gathered; and above all, cultiva
tion of other crops not susceptible
to the weevil.
The Farmer's Union News, pub
lished at Union City, recently pub
lished statistics showing that Geor
gia spends annually for products otn
er than cotton more than $170,000,
000 a year. Every bit of these prod
ucts can be grown in and every dol
lar of that sum should be kept in.
Georgia. The amount we virtually
give away to other sections for the
food and farm products our own
acres should bring forth is nearly
$20,000,000 in excess of our return,
In Georgia, for tho cotton crop.
What Is true of Georgia Is relative-;
ij true of other states net yet touch-1
ed by the weevil. As I ha?'3 previ
ously commented, the trend toward
scientific agriculture, diversification3
and intensive cultivation is impres
sive. But It is only on the" thresh
hold of what it should be.
And the boll weevil is forcing our
hands! It is compelling us, in self
preservation, to turn to a system we
should long ago have embraced vol
untarily in self-interest.
I feel that the peril is so real that
the warning should be commensurate
ly solemn. Begin to fight the boll
weevil now. If you do not it Is go
ing to dig great holes In Southern)
pipgres and prosperity.

Accused of Selling Booze.
The St. Matthews correspondent
of the State says: "Quite a Sensa
tion was sprung here Monday after
non when Sheriff Dantzler arrived
In town with G. W. Willard in custo
dy, under the charge of selling li
quor. Willard is Intendant of the
town of Fort Motte, having been
elected to that office in January. He
is a man of means and has a good
mercantile business in his town. He
has had considerable Influence amonj,
the people of his community. He
waived preliminary and gave bond
for his appearance at court."
Fooling with firearms gets lots of
people in trouble. The State corre
spondent says "Sunday afternoon a
small colored boy accidentally shot
himself with a pistol, inflicting an
ugly wound in the stomach. It seems
as if the boy was playfully threaten
ing to shoot a playmate, aiming the
weapon at the child, who knocked It
up. The lad with the. pistol 9aid he
would shoot himself and fired. The
accident occurred on the place of
Fred Way, a few miles west of this
city, across the Edisto river."
Broke His Left Arm.
(Master Charles, the twelve year
old son of Mr. Vincent, the efficient
book-keeper of the Bank of Orange
burg, had the misfortune to break
his left arm between the elbow and
wrist Monday afternoon by falling
out of a tree at the place of Mr. Dav
id Salley near the city. The acci
dent was a painful one, but the lit
tle fellow will soon be all right.

HUNT FOR INDL\N RELICS.
Agents from Washington Visit the
Sandy Run Section.
The St. Matthews correspondent of
The News and 'Courier says:
"The Sandy Run section of this
j county was evidently a favorite
l tramping ground of tue early Indians
I as evidenced by numerous relics. A
j noted Indian motjnd on the banks of
the Congaree river, Dear by, was vis
ited a few years ago by representa
tives of the Washington Smithsonian
"Recently Mr. T. B. Crider, suc
cessful farmer and splendid citizen
of that section, struck a pot with
his plough point, buried face down?
ward, as usual. His pleasant face
beamed with a smile as broad as a
barn door, when he called his so*s
to the spot and sa'id: 'Now, boys,
for the money.' ' But it was not there.
Mr. D. F. Jumper had a similiar ex
perience, but he avers that he ex
pected no money, hut turned the pot
over just the same.
"Mr. Wade Furtick, of the same
section, has gone the others one bet
ter by ploughing up the skeleton
of a man with an h'on stake hard
by where the victim met his doom.
History teaches unmistakably that
the Indians always demanded blood
for blood without Courts or Juries."
Took a Pleasant Trip.
Automobiles are great institutions
and give a great d XI of pleasure.
The Orange burg correspondent of the

After spending considerable time in
each of these places, the par^ re

of about 75 miles, reaching here at
7 o'clock in the afternoon. The

Still Hauling Water.
The St. Matthews correspondent of
The News and Courier says "the dis
tressing drought which has raged
here, with a few exceptional spots,
for months, is still an. Old corn is
hopeless and the cotton is now on
the down grade. Numerouo farm
ers are hauling water at great Qis
tannes for stock, z.s well as their
families. It is becoming truly dis

Escaped Prisoner Caught.
William Ancrum, an escaped
prisoner, was located and arrested
on Saturday morning by Deputy Sher
iff T. A. Salley. Ancrum made his
escape some eighteen months ago,
and no doubt he thought he was safe,
but he made a mistake. At the time
of his escape he was in the Sheriff's
office, when he jumped out of one of
the window's and ran down Green
street. He was followed by officer
Bozard. When Ancrum found that
he was going to be caught, he turn

Hardly the Boll Weevil.
The Newberry Observer says a far
mer from the lower part of Oconee
County complains that a strange, bug
was damaging the corn and cotton
crops in his section. Just as tps
quares form on the cotton the borer
puts a small hole through the square.
In a few days the square withers airs
drops off. These bugs are so num
erous and their work soi njurious
that the farmers of that section have
become thoroughly alarmed. Th*?e
who have studied the boll weevil and
its work say this insect works exact
ly as the weevil iand that they believe
the weevil has spread to that section.

Cope and vicinity was viBited by two
fine rains on Sunday' mid-day and af

crops that were already looklg well,
were much improved, until now they
are hard to beat. With few excep
tions almost every one reports having
the- best crop they ever had at this
time, tout of course' there are many
ways by which same can be seriously
damaged. At this writing, however,
every one is in high spirits, and if
prices are good this fall there will be
a good many old debts wiped out.
The friends of little Jlmmle Way,
who was operated on two weeks ago
at Knowlton's Infirmary, are pleased
to know that he is still improving.

and it was decided to capitalize at
$25,000, the greater part of which
has already been subscriibed.
"The organization of this institu

it was deemed best to let the matter
wait for a while. The Union has
decided that now is the time for th*.
perfection of Its blanking plans, and
the organization will be pushed. It
was decided to ask the secretary of
state for an amendment to the com

Miss Olive Muarry, of St. George, and
Mr. George Lindstedt, of St. Mat

bride last Tuesday, ceremony being
performed by the Rev. Mr. Wilson of
Orangeburg. The affair was quiet
and was witnessed by only the mem
bers of the two families,
leading families etao.flk,; meb.trbeta
The bride comes of a leading fami
ly, and i3 a young lady of beauty and
culture. She is a musician of rare
ability, and the fact that her resi
dence will be elsewhere will be a mat
ter of regret. Mr. Lindstedt is a
young business man of prominence,
being engaged in the cotton, business
at St Mathews.
Mr. and Mrs. Lindstedt left after

North Carolina, where they will spend
a month before establishing their

Helps the Farmer.
The Winnsboro News and Herald
says: "We do not understand why
the farmers should complain against
the high prices for everything they
raise. Since the days of high cost of
living an unprecedented prosperity
has been enjoyed by this croup of
citizens, and we earnestly hope that
the prosperity will abide with then*
for some time to come. Tf high cost
of living benefits the. farmer, we are
willing to stand it, for his prosperi
ty means the prosperity for living."
