THE IMPENDING STORM
Profiteering may yet be the undoing of this country.
No nation ever is greater than the government it main
tains, and if the government does not conserve the inter
,'eats of the people the people in time lose confidence in that
form of government.
The greatest crime in the history of our country is
that of profiteering, wholesale and delioerate robbery of
a helpless public.
Prices have been artificially forced to such a high al
titude that it is becomingly more and more difficult for a
poor person to even sustain life.
The law of supply and demand no longer prevails. It
his been substituted by one of gouge and grab.
Already many people, men and women of sound and
patriotic principles, are predicting revolution as the only
means of checking this wholesale and lawless thievery.
Our government should take warning while there is
yet time. Protection of profiteering should cease at
once, and prosecution should be swift and relentless.
We can not afford to have our great country wrecked
upon the rock of greed and avarice. And yet today, be
tause of the supine inactivity of our public officials, we
:are heading straight toward destruction.
Public endurance is at the breaking point. Revolu
tion is hovering dangerously near.

LOOK OUT FOR RED SPIDER
Cotton growers should give especial
attention to the following statement
of Prpf. A. F. Conradi, Entomologist,
Keep a close watch on the cotton I
when dry weather i sets in, says
Prof. A. F, Conradi, Entomologist,
so that you will notice the first
signs of red spider. Carefully burn
all plants showing the signs; or
hang ovbr the shoulder a cotton
picker's sack which has been soaked
in kerosene and wrung out,. put in
fested leaves and plants in this, and
burn sack and all. Repeat every
ten days until the attack is over.
But if large spots have become in
fested,- use one of the red spider
sprays,-potassium su:phide, lime
sulphur, nicotine sulphate, or flour
(a) Potassium sulfide is used at
the rate of three pounds to one
hundred gallons of water. (b)
Lime sulphur solution (unless made
at home as for orchards) is not so
easily gotten in the rocal markets.
It costs about 22 cents per gallon
delivered and is used at the rate of
one gallon to one hundred gallons
of water. (This is the same solu
tion as for scale in orchard in win
ter). (c) Nicotine sulphate (tobac
co extract) at the rate .of one coffee
cupful to a fifty gallon of water and
to which has been added the suds of
three pounds of common soap by
dissolving the soap in hot water.
This soap -should not contain coal
tar or naphtha. (d) Boil together
one pound of flour and one gallon of
water and to this add nine gallons
The red spider are found on 273 dif
ferent plants which are their natural
hosts and it is from these natural
hosts growing around the edge of cot
ton fields that infestation takes
Among some of the common host
plants of the red spider found in Clar
endon County are the- Jerusalem Oak
and Poke Weed, which are found in
'voods adjoining cotton fields as well
as along ditches, roads and fence cor
tiers. Other hosts are the violet holly
hock, dahlia and garden beans which
are often planted about the home
grounds and gardens. The destruc
tion of these host plants will accom
plish more to control the red spider
and cost less in time and labor than
anything else you can do.
Don't wait till your fields are in
fested with the pests to destroy poke
weeds, etc., but get at it right away.
If anyone wishes any nelp or fur
ther instruction in regard to the con
trol of the red spider, communicate
with me and I will be glad to assist
