What Can Be Done to Lessen the Damage I
Done by the Boll Weevil in Tensas Parish
First. We should break our lands as early as possible
in the fall so that the boll weevil will have no place to hi
bornate or Ine during the winter, and burn off the ditches
and fenice ctrners.
e cond. We should plant the earliest maturing seed
cotton that can be obtained; such varieties as Wanamaker"
Cleveland, Moneymaker and Improved King cotton, that will
mature before the O10th of August, when the boll weeil do
their worst damage.
Third. We should plant cotton seed as early as possible
and plant a large amount of seed in a good seed bed.
Pourth. We should destroy or burn the squares when they
Fifth. We should plant with our cottop seed from one
to three hnadred pounds of nitrate of soda-to helI the cotton
mature earlier, before the 10th of August. It hasben aproven
beyond question that nitrate of soda causes cotton to mature
Sixth. We should cultivate our cotton rapidly, inten
sively and continually until August 1st, so as to produce a
dust mulch. I.
Seventh. We should use calcium arsenate with the most
improved machinery obtainable and not trust the application
of this expensive poison to colored labor unless the planter
superintends in person. There is no doubt that if every plant
er in -Tensas parish will fllow this course he can largely
lessen the damage done to his crop by the boll weevil.
The new farm bureau organbution in St. Joseph, W5 F
be gld to help the farmers of this parish secure cotton seed,
tzte of sod and calcium arsenste in carload lots at the
very lowest prices obtainable. If they cannot do this I am t
stilled that the banks in this parish will be only too glad s
to order this seed, nitrate of soda and calcium arsenate for a
the tmrfs ers of the parish and distribute the same among
them. By ordering in carload lots, this poison and fertiliser
an be obtained at much lower prices than by buying it in.
SWe mae these suggestions to the farmers of this parish,
because we have tried them all our selves and know that
they will produce good results.
In our next advertisement we expect to make some sui 8
geationa for bettering the labor coaditao s of this panis, p
which we all know are in bad condition. I

THE SHIP SUBSIDY BILL. o

main theme of a comprehensi re suc

.111, made by Joseph E. Ransdel, her
emocrat, (Louisiana) in the s,. mal
te today. He told how the experi- er

ustialia, as well as in the United per
tates, and called attention of the not
penate to figures from the last an- eq

the last two years. I ma
Senator Ranadell, who is also wh
President of the National Merchant
SMaine Association, discussed many CO
- mportant sections of the Shipping

iofore in the Senate debate. He laid
special stress on the value of the
126,000,000 Uonstruction Loan

Inmigration in American ships, the an
cariage of Government stores in col
private vessels an4 the interrela
tions of rail and water traffic. 19
"The creation and maintenance of me
an American merchant marine is aD
basiness question," said Senator
Ransdell. "Politics should not enter col
into its consIderation. As law makers ern

"At the present moment. Great
Britain possesses 194 steel merchant CO'
steamers, able to make 15 knots 4or
better, while we have only 50 of
such vessels. Even if our Navj equals an
Great Britain's, the superiority of We
her merchant marine in auiliats C

How then does malaria winter in
the southern states? You see very
few cases of chills and fever during
.he winter months, and it is only the
warmest days that there are any
malaria mosquitoes flying about. It
is true that many malaria mosqui
toes hibernate, or live through the
winter months in secluded places,
but so far is known these mosqui
toes do not carry the infection over
until next spring. Next year's ma
laria crop is carried over in only
one way-in the bodies of persons
previously infected, inadequately
treated, and never really cured of
the disease. Here then is the clue for
this winter's campaign against next
summer's malaria. Kill the malaria
seed in human hosts. CURE the ma
laria cases, and thus prevent an
abundant crop of malaria next year,
for it is from these old eases that
all of next season's new crop will
spring. Fortunately, we can kill the
malaria germs without injury to the
person who carries them in his blood.
Quinine will do this almost without
fail if it is taken in suficient dos
age for long enough time.
