Fighting The Army Worm.
The Observer h:.s received a
communication from the bureau
of entomology of Clemson col
lege with reference to the army
worms. This outbreak is said
to be general over this state and
over this state and over the
South. The Clemson college
bu 'on the "fall army
~Vr" is as follows:
* There is in this state, an in
*vasion of the fall army worm
on corn, grass and cotton. This
caterpillar is about 1 to 1 1-2
Inches long when grown. It is
quite different from the cotton
caterpillar, although many
farmers mistake the one for the
other. This insect which is
now in this state is not the cot
Ston caterpillar which did so
much injury to cotton last sum
mer, but is the fall army worm
which is sometimes called the
-grass worm. The fall army
worm is usually present in such
smallnumbers that they do no
-harm to the crops, but on the
