Washington, Sept. 28.-So alarming

Arkansas and Louisiana to the cot

ard, head of the bureau of entomology,
department of agriculture, has decid
ed to leave Washington October 2,
for those states, determined to remain
there until some definite steps are
taken for the eradication of the havoc
While M)fr. Howard has beenaware
for some time that the weevil was at
tacking the cot ton plant in some of
the southwestern states with fearful
results, he did iot, until a day or two
ago have any idea of the damage that I
la(d been done during the present i
year. le has been informed during
Ile last few days by Congressman
Wallace, of LaFayette, Columbia
coulity, Arkansas, that in one week's
time recentlv when an actnal count 1
was kept the weevil traveled 15 miles
in one week. That convinced M'r.
WNallace that if lie crop in his state
was to be saved steps should he tak- I
en at once inl the matter. le then in- I
formled Mr. Howard at length of the
coiiditions existing in his state as

Louisiana. The result of the corres- I
pondence is that Mr. Howard will
start to the southwest at the time in
dicated prepared to remain in the 1
enemy's territory until lie has either I

When Mr. Howard arrives in Texas F

The train will be in charge of %Ir.

officials, cotton planters. and possibly
several men froin the bureau of ento- t

The officials of the roads in the in
feeted territory have given every en-!
couragement to the efforts that Mr.
Howard is making to determine upon r
some effective means for the destrue- i
