Bol Weevil Talk.
The Baton Rouge correspon
dent of the Picayune says:
"That the boll weevil in this
section of the State will not do
serious damage to the early cot
ton is the opinion of Wilmon
Newell, Secretary of the State
Crop Pest Commission. After
the 1st of August the weevils
are exlected to appear in large
numbers, and will do unques
tioned damage to the crops.
'The past season was favorable
in East Baton Rouge for the hi
bernation of the pest,' says Mr.
Newell, but the general rule has
been that where the weevil has
appeared the summer previous
in a p)arish that little damage is
done until late the following sum- -
mer. Those farmers who have
early maturing cotton and have
followed the cultural methods T
should be able to get 95 per cent be
of their crops, so far as the dam- Inta
age from the boll weevil will af- sup
feet the yield. But where from Ant
late planting, poor seed and fail- t
ure to culdivate properly the crop in
is slow in maturing, the weevil '
will do considerable damage.' an
Accoi'ding to entomolgists the me
pest is expected to increase in mo
sufficient numbers after August an
1st to practically prevent the' 01
making of a crop after that date. al.
The experiments that are being set
conducted at Mansura show that abi
a great proportion of the weevils wO
are surviving the season." w

The second Sunday in May has
been chosen by those specially
interested as Mothers' Day. The
suggestion first came from Miss
Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia, and
the day was observed last year
in many cities. The approval
given the movement by the press
and by well-known men and wo
men has encouraged the pro
moters to make the observance
an annual affair, and they hope
some day to make it internation
al. They urge that each of us
set aside that Sunday to think
about "the best mother in the
world," that white carnations be
worn or sent to the hospitals in
memory of our mothers, and that
ministers choose appropriate
texts. Every one who is the for
tunate possessor of a living moth
er is asked to choose that day to
visit, write or telephone her, and
in a general way show her, re
marks an exchange, what a very
popular person she is with her
sons and daughters.
It looks as though these good
people had lent themselves to a
deliberate conspiracy to make
somebody happy. Whether this
is constitutional or not we do not
know, but we do not recall any
body who ever got into serious
difficulty by thinking about his
The following advice is from
the Ladies' Home Journal: Drink
less, breathe more; eat less, chew
more; ride less, walk more;
clothe less, bathe more; worry
less, sleep more; talk less, think
more; waste less, give more;
scold less, read more: preach
less, practice more.
"6oed-bye, 06d Bless Yeu."
I like the Anglo-Saxon speech
With its direct revealings;
It takes a hold, and seems to reach
Way down into our feelings.
That some folks deem it rude I know,
And therefore they abuse it;
But I have never found it so
Before all else I choose it.
I don't object that men should air
The Gallic they have paid for,
With "Au revoir," "Adieu ma chere,"
For that's what French was made for.
But when a crony takes your hand
At parting to address you,
He drops all foreign lingo and
He says, "Good.bye,'God bless you!"
This seems to me a sacred phrase,
With reverence impassioned;
A thing come down from righteous days,
Quaintly but nobly fashioned.
It well becomes an honest face,
A voice that's round and cheerful;
It stays the sturdy in his place
And soothes the weak and fearful.
Into the porches of the ears
It steals with subtle unction,
And in your heart of hearts appears
To work its gracious function.
And all day long with pleasing song
It lingers to caress you;
I'm sure no human heart goes wrong
That's told "Good-bye, God bless you."
I love the words, perhaps because,
When I was leaving mother;
Standing at last in solemn pause
We looked at one another,
AnI I-I saw in mother's eyes
The love she could not tell me
A love eternal as the skies,
Whatever fate befell me;
She put her arms around my neck.
And soothed the pain of leaving,
And though her heart was lke to break,
She spoke no words of grieving,
She let no tear bedim her eye,
For fear that might distress me,
But kissing me, she said good-bye,
And asked our God to bless me.
