FOOD FOR TURKEYS.
Latest Report Concerning the Pest of
Texas Is That It Has a
A boom in turkeys is roportod from
Texas as a result of the boll weevil
plague, and that State, particularly in
the boll weovil section, will produce
from three to four times as many tur
keys as heretofore. The shipment
from Giddlngs amounts to 6,000 tur
keys. The town had never shipped any
before, all those raised there being
j used at homo.
The raising of the turkeys is the di
rect result of the boll weevi', tho farm
ers holding that the turkey is a fine
bird in the cotton fields, boiug able be
cause of his long reach, to get at the
top of the stalk during the season of
greatest activity among the infects.
Then the boll weevil will bo exter
minated and the turkeys fattened at
the same time. The extermination of
birds in Texas la claimed by some to
be largely responsible for the increase
of the weevil nuisance. The turkey is
the only domestic fowl able to get at
the weevil easily.
