BOLL WEEVEL PROBLEM
SOLVED BY THE BIRDS
James Henry Hlce Makes u Plea for
the Feathered Tribe which, lie Says,
?in Fr?re the Sooth's Saltation.
Barnwell,?The Salkehatchle Agri
cultural club had as its guest and
prlclpal speaker recently James Hen
ry Rice. Jr., formerly superintendent
of the Harnwell schools, and now chief
game warden of South Carolina.
The meeting was held at the club
bouse, a mile from town, and Mr.
Rice spoke on the "Menace of the
Boll Weevil." His remarks were re
ceived with favor and be was voted
the thanks of the club on motion of
George H. Hates, senator from Uarn
The club agreed to memorialize the
neral assembly to pass the hunters'
license for raising revenue for the
protection of insect-eating birds.
Showed the Peril.
Mr. Rice showed the great peril
hanging over South Carolina from the
rapid advance of the boll weevil, that
has within three years past made an
advance equal to the previous nine
years and that an equal rate would
reach South Carolina within the next
three years. The government estimate
is live years, but this- includes liberal
allowance for setbacks.
A most interesting feature of the
address was the outlining of the
course of the boll weevil, which, ac
cording to Mr. Rice, would probably
enter South Carolina within the
bounds of Uarnwell county. The
speaker showed why the insect-eating
bird was the only final check to the
boll weevil and what retarded the
work of birds in Texas.
Safet) of State at Stake.
" The safety of the State is at stoke,
peril overhangs the people." he said,
"better have a few disgruntled hunt
ers than thousands of ruined farm
ers." It was shown that every State
invaded by the weevil had put on
stringent regulations against shoot
ing birds, but this would not be neces
sary in South Carolina if proper steps
were taken now for the enforcement
of the laws. The general assembly
has not mad? provision for the en
forcement of the laws: it Is now the
business of the people to insist on
that protection which every man has
a right to expect from the State to
which he owes allegiance.
Mr. Rice gave a history of the boll
weevil from the beginning and added
a list of birds that eat the weevil,
pointing out what measures were best
calculated to meet this grave crisis.
Many Questions Asked.
President Peacock presided and
many questions were put to the
speaker by various farmers present
who were interested in every phase
of the question.
Letter to Southern People. ?
The people of California, at the sug
gestion of one of the Western rail
roads, have begun the sending of four
million invitations to persons east of
the Mississippi river to go as settlers
to California. All the Western rail
roads are urgng the people of the
West to do likewise for their different
States. A large part, if not a majori
ty, of those invitations will come to
the South and we have not any people
to spare. In fact our greatest need is
for more people. Why. then, shall we
not undertake to gather the names of
and invite back to the South, "back
homo,0 our Own people? Millions of
them are in the West and Northwest.
Is not the South good enough for
them? Have we not sufficient con
fidence in its opertunltles to invite,
nay to urge. Southern people to come
"back home" and share them? Fi
nally, is not the "back home" move
ment a real, tangible work for us as
Individuals-something definite for us
to do? Tell every one you know to
write to every one he knows in the
West or elsewhere to come "back
home" and bring others. Call on the
railroads to send them literature of
reasons and facts as to why our peo
ple Bhould come "back home." Let
us show the Western railroads that
we can send five invitations to their
one. Let us show that the South can
offer, and "make good" on, as many
opportunities as the West-Indeed bet
ter ones. Let us ' come alive!"
