PLASTER OF PARIS o
KILLS BOLL WEE[VIL -
New Roads, La., Nathan Gam
burg; a young business man of
Oscar, La., from a close and
personal investigation says he
has discovered that boll weevils
and grasshoppers can easily be
killed with plaster of, paris if
properly applied. Mr. Gamburg
states that he has experimented
to a considerable extent on the
crops on the farm of Isaac Big
man, a well-known merchant
and planter of that vicinity, and
that by applying plaster of paris
early in the morning, before the
dew disappears, or just after a
little shower of rain, the boll
weevils and grasshopperg are
easily destroyed by poison.
Mr. Tucker, of the Louisiana
state agricultural department, a
few days ago, visited Mr. Big
man at Oscar for the purpose of
seeing the grasshoppers and just
what damage they are doing.
He had previously recommended
some preparation to Mr. Bigman,
that was supposed to kill these
insects, but on being shown the *
results from the use of plaster 4
of paris he Stated that this was
a better preparation than the de
partment had in use.
Plaster of paris applied in the 4
manner Mr. Gamburg recom
mends not only kills the insects,
but is a very valuable fertilizer,
anid the crops that have been so
treated present a much better
appearance and are much larger 3
than those not treated in this
manner. Mr. Gamburg is from
Russia and states that at one
time in his native country in;.
sects began destroying the crops
of hops and after many years of
searching plaster of paris was
tried and finally adopted as the
only thing to kill the pests;
hence originated his idea of try
ing plaster of paris on boll' wee
vils and grasshoppers, which is
pro-ing to be a sucicess.

He earfully saved his earnings, and at
the qde of twenty-one, had a few dol

this time the Erie Canal was in process
of widening, and all sorts of buildings

profitable, and soon after he moved to
Chicago and continued in this business.
In 1858 he became interested in the
Sleeping car problem. The cars in use
then contained three tiers of shelves on
each side of the car and were far from
comfortable. He began experimenting,

Car, the "Pioneer" at a cost of $18,000.
