* How to Get Kid of Cut-Worms. ?
Now Is the time to get rid of the
troublesome cut-worms. Do not watt
until they are ruining your stand of
cotton and corn and then attempt to
control them; for then there Is little
that can be done. In the fields where
they did damage last year, plow the
land deep this spring; for the worms
which are going to give you trouble
are now in little rounded cells in the
soil, dug out for their protection last
fall when cold weather came on. This
deep plowing will turn many of the
worms under so that they will never
be able to get to the surfaco to do
any damage. Not all of them will
bo killed in this way. Experience has
shown that it is a good plan to follow
this up by nn additional measure.
About planting time, in clear weather,
cut any fresh green material which
may be about the place, preferably
clover, and dip this Into a barrel of
poison solution, made by dissolving
one pound of Paris green (the sub
stance that is used for killing potato
bugs) in fifty gallons of water. In the
lato afternoon, scatter this poisoned
vegetation lightly over the worst In
fested ncres so that it will not wilt
too quickly. The starved cut-worms,
having had no food all winter, come
out at night and eat this greedily, and
are poisoned. Defer chopping the cot
ton or thinning the corn as long as
possible; for the greater the amount
of food the worms can get. the quick
er they will mature, changing Into a
"candle-fly," and cease to trouble the
crop. Frequent shallow cultivation,
as close to the young plants as can
bo done without Injury to them, also
proves n check to the work of these
pests. The best permanent way, how
ever, to handle them, Is by rotation
of crops, practicing deep fall plow
ing, thorough spring pn aration, and
by keeping the land covered In win
ter with some cover crop, such as rye
and vetch, or better still crimson
clover, if it can be grown. Such steps
as these will rid the land of the cut
worms and at the same time ais ex
tra cultivation will Improve the land.
The problem in the garden Is a
somewhat more difficult one, but the
same methods apply. An important
point to observe Is to put plans badly
affected, such as cabbage, as far away
from their last year's place of plant
ing as Is practicable.

Child Unites Parents.
A touching scene was enacted In
Magistrate A. H. Klrby's court yester
day, when the three-year-old child of
a man named DeRrewell and his wife
reunited the couple, who had been
separated. DeRrewell left hie wife
over a year ago and went to Ashe
vllle. She supported the child by
working In a cotton mill. Recently
he came back and asked her to live
with him again. She refused. He then
Instituted habeas corpus proceedings
before Judge T. S. Sense to get pos
session of tho child. Judge Sense
awarded the father the baby because
the mother would not consent to re
turn to her husband and live with
him. Mrs. DeRrewell then started a
prosecution against her husband be
fore Magistrato Kirby for desertion.
When the case enme up yesterday
Major Kirby advised the couple to
make up and live together again. He
told them of a couple he knew who
were separated for 17 years and then
became reconciled with each other
and lived together happily the rest of
their lives. Tho baby ran from De
Rrewell to Mrs. DeRrewell and hack
again, and so affected the parents
that they decided to forget thole dif
ferences and live together again.
They left tho office with the child,
talking pleasantly with one unother.

What We Can Do and Do Not
The 'sheep-growing Industry is said
to be declining throughout the United
States and the prospect of an increas
ing scarcity of mutton and spring
lamb Is giving concern, especially In
the East. The Transcript, of Boston,
predicts that the census figures will
disclose that the sowing of the Heids
of the Northwest in wheat is reducing
the number and size of the Hocks, and
It asserts that in Massachusetts a

to prevent tho depression in the in

In the South, of course, one must
havo remarkable temerity to advo
cate sheep raising. The steep hills
and deep valleys in some parts of
South Carolina, better adapted to
sheep raising perhaps than to any
other purpose, must continue to be
neglected, and we suppose that the
suggestion that It be undertaken upon
a systematic scale would be regarded
as a malign and sinister attack on
our well-established and gloriously
prosperous "yadler dog" industry.
One would not bo greatly surprised
if what we are here saying should
result In allying the friends of the
"yaller dogs" during the coming cam

Northwest?which is our own fault,
and not the fault of the land we live
in?but South Carolina mutton and
lamb compare favorably with the most

United States. There is money, too,
in raising sheep in South Carolina;
here and there where a farmer has i
given it fairly diligent and intelligent I
attention he has made profits out of
it, and the acres in the State that
