Judge McCullough Affirms Decision
of Special Referee
Greenwood, June 30.?A decision of
much interest to many people is that
of the special judge. Joseph McCul
lough, In the matter of J. O. C. Klein. I
tng, J. T. Johnson, N. B. Dial ot al..
against B. 1). Riegel et al.. and Ware
Shoals Manufacturing company.
In the decision received here today
by the clerk of court. W. H. Yclldell,
Judge McCullough affirms the conclu
sions both of law and of fact as made
by Special Referee Edward Mclver ol
Cheraw, who heard this case here by
appointment about a year ago.
The report of the special referee
was filed here August 1. 1909, and in
it he recommended that the com
plaint he dismissed for the reasons
The plaint ill's. represented by
Simpson, Cooper & Babb and Stobo
Simpson, filed exceptions to the refer
ee's report and the matter came be
fore .Indue McCullough ;is special
Judge at the April term of the court
of common pleas. lie heard argu
ments on both sides and reserved his
decision until today.
The defendants, the Messrs. Rie
gel and the Ware Shoals Manufactur
ing company, of which lt. D. Hiegei
is president, were represented by
Cothrnn, Dean & Cothrnn of Gre< i
vllle and Crier & Park of Greenwood.
Contra? t Carried Out.
JtldgO McCullough in the decree
does not recite the matters of fact, all
of which were covered most thor
oughly in the referee's report, but
tines at once into the ' res" and holds
that as to the matter of the election
of Mr. Dial as the first president of
the defendant company, the contract
between himself and the Riegels was
Mr. Dial was continually reelocted
president of the company. Tho mat
ter of reduced salary was what caused
the trouble ami as to this .Judge Mc
Cullough says: "It was Mr. Dial's mis
fortune that this matter was not care
fully guarded by the terms of the eon.
tract, which he claims to have made
and which is sought to he enforced."
In conclusion Judge McCullough
holds: "The conclusions of the special
referee, both as to matter of law and
of fact, are affirmed and the excep
tions thereto are overruled."
This can not be regarded as an end
of this famous case, however, as the
attorneys for the plaintiffs have al
ready announced their intention to
carry i; to the supreme court.

CleftlSOll College. .Inno L'S.?Next to
the San Jose Scale this is the most
destructive peach insect in the State.
Every fruit grower is familiar with its
work. Tlie time is approaching when
effective work for provonting the rav
ages of this pest next year can be'
Rriefly stated the lite history of this
insect is as follows: the small brown
ish eggs are laid in the crevices of the
bark of in wounds on the base of the
tree and also on exposed roots. Thest
soon hatch and the small whitish lar
vae begin burrowing into the sap and
outer layer of wood where I hey con
tinue to develope until growth is c heck
ed by cold weather. In this condi
tion they lie dormant except for an
occasional interruption by warm wea
ther, until the approach of spr'ng when j
feeding is resumed and continued un
till about the tenth of June. At this j
time the fully developed larva leaves
the tree and forms a COCOOI1 or capsule
about one inch in length composed ol
silk in the soil at the base of tbe tree.
In this cocoon the larva passes a
quiescent period of about three weeks,
filially emerging as a beautiful moth,
the male cd' which Bllghtly resembles
an ordinary wasp. The beautifully
colored female begins laying eggs, for
the next generation, soon alter emerg
ing about July 10. Approximately
speaking, the egg laying period ex
lends from July 10 to October I.
If the scdl is hanked around the
base of the infested tree to a depth of
about ten inches after the larvae; have
entered tlie soil for pupation, which j
is about June 20, the resulting niotiix
will perish in attempting to come to
the surface of the mound of earth.
Tlie mound should be b it about the
ire,, until October l">. which will pre
vent female moths from other or.
chords, and any possible ones that |
may have escaped from laying their
eggs on tlie moist portion of the tree.
Many of the eggs laid higher up on the
trunks of the trees will never hatch,
and the larvae of any thai may hatc h
can easily be destroyed by carefully
going over the orchard with a knife
I later in the fall. After October 1.".
the mounds may be removed and the
upper portion of the roots uncovered
during the winter, in order to destroy
any borers by exposure should the
weather be sufficiently cold. This
method has been tried in se veral or
chards in South Carolina and found
to work admirably.
By following these few simple sug
gestions we will ho able to improve
the quality of our fruit besides add
