Reliable information from Nevi

Duke interests have about perfecter
plans for building a string of cottor
mills in the South and would spenr
about $50,000,000 in the project. Th<

It is believed here that the towr
of Pickens stands a good chance t(
get one of these new mills. Certainly
Pickens is a most favorable location
for such an enterprise.
Pickens can offer several fine loca
tions at unusually low prices.
Our pure and plentiful water sup
ply, natural drainage and fine health
conditions would no doubt receive the
most favorable consideration.
But probably the biggest factor in
A' our favor is the plentiful supply of
native white labor of the very best
type which Pickens county has to
offcr. That the class of labor Pick
ens county has to offer is the best
in the world has been amply proved.
Pickens people would also subscribe
liberally to the stock of the mill if
asked to (1o so.
Another large cotton mill for Pick

HOW BOLL WEEVIL CAN BE
Clemson College, June 30.-For the
purpose of summing up in convenient
form the recommendations of the Ex
tension Service regarding boll weevil
control this year, Information Card
No. 22, entitled "Boll Weevil Control
in 1922," has been issued and may be
had upon application from the Ex
tension1 Service, Clemson College, S.
C., or from the county agents.
This brief publication gives seven
points in t!'e matter of control o-f the
weevil, these be-ng re-statements of
the suggestions made from time to
time by the Extension Service. They
have to (1o with cultivation, pickin;
ef weevils and squares, poisoning,
pl'Iwing uncler stalks as early as pos.

farming to destroy boll weevil hiber

The only p'ritabl r'e. uIts so far
secured .n carefully cIlstru cled tests
by federal and stat anencies were
securtd by the use of eaiciun arsen
ate in dust forn pt:re perly applied.
Poison only when the air is calm
and the plants are neist. using' from
five to s( veni pulidils pi4i' acre for each
application. When wetvils are abun
dant when fruiting of cotton betri ns,
one application may be made at that
t'me. Use no calcium arainate that
has not, been exam ined by federal or
state authorit it s and pronounced
satisfactory. The next application
should be made lhn the weevil;

per cent of the squares, followed by
two additional appliication four days
apart. Infest it attut coun':. -h-mi d be
made frequ ntly and can be made by
any farimeri who follows the simple

The object is to keep the cotton
thoroughly (lust( d until the Weevils
are under control. This may require
a varying number of apoliettions ot
poisionI, depending on the season, and
ether conditions. If weevils should
become sufficiently numerous to sev
crely :lljur the young bolls, one or
two more applications late in the
season shouldl be made.
In case of heavy rain within twenty
four hours after dusting, the aplhica..
