Burgess. but just about that time the
gun fired and the load took effect in
Burgess's stomach. Some of the shot

They Will Be Put In Texas Cotton
Washington. June 30.-Secretary
Wilson and Dr. B. F. Galloway, the
directory of the bureau of plant in
dustry, yesterday received the first
advices from Dr. 0. F. Cook, the de

latter started from Guatemala with
the newly discovered ants intended
to fight the boll weevils in the co.tton
Dr. Cook cables from Puerto Cor
tez. Mex.. that he will arrive at New
Orleans on July 4 with 89 colonies of
these ants. He will immediately pro
ceed to the Texas cotton districts to
begin the campaign against the
weevils. The experimental coloniza
tion of these ants probably will be in
stituted first at Victoria. Tex The
location of the colonies hinges large
ly on soil questions, the shale-like
soil being most conducive to the
success of the experiments. A letter
received by the department today
from Dr. Cook says that the colonies
should be located in districts afford
ing a loose and moist sub-soil but
well drained. He says the ants will
have to be kept under careful obser
vation for a considerable period and
must be protected from birds or other
dangers until the colonies have had
time to increase materially.
The ants come from the depart
ment of Alta Vera Paz.' Guatemala.

says that contrary to many reports
there is no field culture of cotton
