FIGHT ALGAINST FOREST INSECTS.c
What Experts Hope to Do-Aunounee
ment by Government Agent E.
Spartanburg, July 10.-The forest
insect field station, which has been
stablished in Spartanburg by the de
partment of agriculture of the United 1
States, has already begun active work,
and has laid plans whereby much ac
tual good will be done for the trees
and timber interests, not only in this
immediate vicinity, but throughout
Georgia and the Carolinas.
T. W. Turner is special agent, and
E. B. Mason is his assistant. Mr. Tur
ner until recentiy has been located in I
the State of Oregon, where he has
been engaged in similar work for the
department. Mr. Mason has been con
nected with the service for some time.
He graduated from Princeton univer
sity and from the Forestry School at
Yale, and has also studied extensively
abroad. In an interview Mr. Mason
"The pine tree beetle has increased
greatly recently. The prevalence of'
this insect as existing in this section
was reported to the department of
agriculture at Washington, which led
to the establishment of this bureau in
Spartanburg. Investigations that we
have made at Reidsville, in Spartan
burg county, and in other sections
shows us that this beetle goes from
four to five generations. In this sec
tion it is in its first to second genera
tion, and its damage to timber has
made it a very serious matter.
"The solution of the abolIshment of
the pest lies entirely in the hands of
the individual farmer and land owner,
who, by co-operation among themsel
ves and with us. We will show them
how to control it. The lack of funds
and the limited number of men avail-.
- able for the government make it im
possible to inspect every individual
land owner's timber and give specific
advice in each case, but the govern- I
ment will, through this station, give
the best scientific advice and teach the
land owners to combat the pest them
"What we offer now," continued Mr.'
Mason, "is to have the owners of tim
ber interests to report their troubles
to us, along with a description of the
trouble -and the location of the dead
or dying trees, in o'der that we may
centralize th efforts in the m>st in
Mr. Mason said further: "The cut
ting down of trees at this season of
the year attracts the beetle and other
trees, living and in the same vicinity
soon become infected likewise. The
spreading of the insect and the dam
age to adjacent tmber is one ofsthe
worst and greatest detriments con
nected with the prevalence of the in
"When full information has been re
ceived as to the extent of the visita
tions of the beetle,. which will be in
November of this year, we will issue
a circular giving specific directions as
Cto how to control the pest. We will be
glad to speak in any district where
there are sufficient timber interests to
warfrant a visit. This is a mate3r '
concerns the entire South, 'and espe
cially those districts where extensive
timber interests exist, and is in under
no circumstances a State matter. It
is absolute.ly an interstate bureau, as
are all that the United States govern
- tent conducts.
C. E. 5:nith, of R. F. D. No. 5, Green-;
- villk, a well-known and prominent
timberman, has received such instruc
--tions from Dr. Hopkins, expert on in-J
sects at the department of agriculture
Lin Washington, as to be able to do
demonstration work in regard to the
*beetle, and has been appointed for this
~.purpose in Greenville and vicinity. Mr.
S~mith was appointed in the depart
-ment of agricultuye.

The coroner's office has been busy
all day answering telephone and tele
