"The Sequel to the Diamond from the

terest. A Smashing Action Story.
"Tile Sequel to The Diamond from
the Sky" and the remarkable drama,
"The lianond from the Sky", which
inspired it, constitute together the
longest film drama over produced.
"The Sequel" is to be presented \t~ere
at the Opera 1louse Tuesday the 19tl.
There were sixty reels in "The -1)ia
m(nd from the Sky" and there Mare
eight reels in "The Sequel." ''his
means that there are 68,000 feet of
lWin in the two productions, nearly
twice the length of illm used in any
pre'vious ('hapter play.
There never has been a play which
contained so many distinct episodes

that pulled it completely out of the

many of the offerings.
The wisdom of applying modern limo

completely Justified by the result. it'
is certain that no more popular chap

In judging manuscripts from which
"The Sequel to The Diamond from the
Sky" was -selected, the same rules
were applied. The result is a play
which grips and holds attention from
the curtain to the close.
"The Sequel to The Diamond from
the Sky" throughout its four chapters,
is a constant thrill. It is a melodrama
-mtade for the screen and not an adap -
tation. For this and for other reasons
later to be revealed to the spectator,
"The Sequel" is the most sensational
screen story ever put together.

13OLL WEEVIL NEAR
TilE STATE IORWEII
Will Invade aLower Section Next Sum.
fmier, Says Prof. ('onradi of Clemson.
Clemson college, Dec. 8.-That the
lower section of South Carolina will
be Invaded by the boll weevil next suml
mt r, athough not in suflicient numbers
to do atny great amount of damage, is
the statement made by Prof. A. Ih.
C'onradi, State entomologist. The wee
vil is now witbin fifteen miles of the
state line, and Barnwell will probably
bse. the first county entered by the pest.
Although it is conceded that the
Weevil will reach the State ntext year,
it is not thoight that any greaf damage
will result before the season of 1919
or possibly 1920. That the Piedmont
section will not -be reached for some
two or three years after the lower part
of the state, was also the opinion of
The progress of the weevil since It
first entered the United States in 1893
has never been successfully checked.
The only conditions .that govern the
weevil, stated Prof. Conradi, are tem
perature and moisture. Therefore, al
though the weevil will undoubtedly en
ter all sections of the State and must
be contended with, it is pointed out
that the rainfall in that section of the
State above Columbia is such that the
weevill will never be the serious fac
tor it is elsewhere. In the months of
untle, July and August the amount of
rainfall determines the success or fail
ure of the crop. In an ordinary dry
year the farmers of the Piedmont can
make cotton despite the weevil. In
other words, only about once in 38
years will the conditions prevail in
the Piedmont so as to render the cul
tivation of cotton unprofitable. Below
Columbia, the chances are that it will
be as severe as has been the case in
the lowlands of Louisiana. Intelligent
farming and diversification, however,
will reduce the damage to a minimumll
as has been proved elsewhere.
Another thing to guard against Just
at this time is the fact that there are
about 1,500 species of beetles in South
Carolina, any of which the farmer
ight readily call the boll weevil. Al
though it is barely possible that an oc
casional weevil might be many miles
in advance of the main horde, it is al
together unlikely, therefore, in the
words of Prof. ('onradi, "any one
thinking they have found a weevil in
the State should remember that the
chances are about 1.199 to I that it iS
soime other insect, one that does ab
solutely no damage to cotton." Any
one finding an insect that is suspected
of being a .lexican holl weevil should
first send it to the State entomologist
before an noiincing that a weevil has
been found. If this rule Is adhered to
lutch that might canse a depression
in) the p~ric'e of land., would be avoid

That the one crop system has failed
Is evidenced by the poverty of a large
per cent of our agricultural people
after fifty years under such a system.
Our farmers shottld be made to nl
dlerstand that intelligent diverslfica
tion and proper rotation of crops is -
sound economy and the best remedy
for boll weevil conditions. Under
sich conditions, it is absolutely neces
sary that the cot ion planter establish
a system of rotation that will in a
large measure keep up the supply of
nitrogen. Cotton should always fol
low a su mmer legume, such as cow
peas, soy beans or velvet beans. The
effect. of these legumes will be to
force the cotton to early fruiting, and
this -is essential in lighting the boll

Third year: grain-the grain to be
cut off and the land to be planted in
peas; the peas to be cut off for hay
or turned under in the fall prepara
tory to a second cotton crop.
In addition to the crops mentioned
in this rotation, many climatic condi
tions are favorable and where suit
able markets are accessible, tobacco,
soy beans, sweet potatoes, Irish pota

Every farmer should raise his own
mules. The raising of beef cattle is
also profitable if land Is cheap and
pasturage can be had. The same Is
true of sheep. In the northern sec

land is too steep to cultivate, these
side lines of farming should be found
For the small farmer no form of
live stock is more profitable than hogs.
Pork can be produced cheaper in the
South than in the North, especially
where proper grazing crops are grown.
, More attention should be paid by
ottr farmers to poultry in the way of
having better breeds and giving them
more intelligent care.

It Always Helps
says Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky., in
writing of her experience with Cardui, the woman's
tonic. She says further: "Before I began to use
Cardul, my back and head would hurt so bad, I
thought the pain would kill me. I was hardly able
to do any of my housework. After taking three bottles
of Cardui, I began to feel like a new woman. I soon
gained 35 pounds, and now, I do all my housework,
as well as run a big water mill.
I wish every suffering woman would give
a trial. I still use Car ' ien I feel a little bad,
and it always me good."
Headache, backache, side ache, nervousness,
tired, worn-out feelings, etc., are sure signs of woman
ly trouble. Signs that you need Cardui, the woman's
tonic. You cannot make a mistake in trying Cardul
for your trouble. It has been helping weak, ailing
women for more than fifty years.
