THE K[TCHMO TRAP
HELPS WEEVIL CONTROL
On another page we are carrying
an advertisement of the Christal
Ketchmo Boll Weevil Trap. This trap
has been invented by Messrs. C. C.
Christal and C. P. Gable, both of
Gable, this County. While these gen
tlemen do not make any extravagant
claims for their machine, they do say
that it will help control the, ravages
of this pest.
The writer, while on his way to Co
lumbia recently, stopped and talked
to a farmer on the other side of Cam
den, who was using one of these ma
chines and he was loud in praises of
In the letter in the advertisement
from the McFaddin young men it
looks as though if a farmer went over
his field every day or every other day
it would only be a question of a very
short time until there would not be a
weevil left in the field.
Any and aill methods tending to the
externmi:ation o' the weevil, if stren
uously worked, will mean but one
thing-his damages will be brought
down to the lowest mark. The poison
method und rbtedly is good, but we
believe that the trap is the most eco

Mr. Logan received much ap
plause when he was introduced to
the audience. He said that in Con
gress he had worked for the dis
trict, always considering the wel
fare of the farmers. Mr. Morrison
stressed the need of good roads and
an inland passage. He cited his ad
vocacy of the State Highway Com
mission and of the Santee river
bridge. Mr. Hutto said that finan
cial relief of the farmers would be
the first matter he - would press if
he were elected to Congress.
Mr. Morrison anounced his plat
form as one of rigid economy and
stated that he, as a farmer himself,
would, if elected, be a representa
tive of the farmers of the district.
He deplored the fact that hereto
fore they hd not had just repre
sentation, but that the efforts of
the Representative of the First dis
trict had been centered on the City
Mr. Morrison said that he will
do his utmost to have the national
government appropriate funds to
be used in the improvement of the
present highways and for the con
struction of new ones. He would
also labor for what he termed a
much-needed facility-- an inland
waterway, running from New Eng
land to Florida.

of the originators of the plan to
build the Santee bridge, which is
now in the course of construction,
in order that Charleston and the
lower country might be connected
with the upper section of the State.
He spoke of the farmers redeem
ing the South after the War Be

farmers would redeem the country'
in the present crisis.
Mr. Morrison in conclusion paid a
tribute to the women, saying that
up until some time ago he had not
been a believer in woman suffrage,
but that we was now glad to an
nounce that he had changed his
mind in regard to this question and
that the future of the country lies
in the hands of its women.

Mr. Hutto was the next candi
date for Congress to be heard, in
troducing himself as the "Duke of
Dorchester,' say that this title had
been bestowed upon him by Mr.
Logan, but stating that the boll
weevil had taken away everything
which might entitle him to be
known as the "Duke of Dorchester."
Mr. Hutto did not wait until the
end to address the the women; instead,
he told them in the beginning that
it was a very great pleasure to be
privileged to speak to them.
. "I am a candidate for Congress
because I am unwilling to continue
to live under present conditions,"
said Mr. Hutto in announcing his
platform. He said that the present
financial depression in the South is
the result of the Republican party
diverting funds which were justly
due to Southern farmers and busi
ness men to the North, saying that
Southern farmers have been forced
to sell their cotton at absurdly low
figures as a result of not having
funds which would allow them to
hold it. Mr. Hutto confidently pre
dicted . his election and said that
one of the first matters which he
would consider upon his arrival in
Washington would be the question
of the financial relief of the South
