ANT IS SERIOUS PEST

(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Both indoors and out the Argentine
ant is becoming at serious pest in the
South, according to entomologists of
the United States departmnent of ag
riculture. In dwellings and stores the
pests are attacking food supplies, and
out-of-doors they are protecting aphids
and mealy bugs, which infest cotton,
corn and sugarcane plants. Depart
ment Bulletin No. 377, just issued,
suggests control measures for the
It is practically certain, states the
bulletin, that the Argentine ant was
introduced into this country at New
Orleans in ships from Brazilian ports.
It was first observed in that city in
1891, and at present it Is distributed
throughout portions of nine southern
states. There are three forms of the
Argentine ant-the worker, the drone
and the queen-all of a dark-brown
color. The worker is about one-tenth
Inch in length, the male is somewhat
larger and has wings, while the queen
is nearly three times as large as the
Because of its small size and incon
spicuous color the ,worker is able to
invade every part of ordinary build
ings. Any exposed food or food refuse
attracts the workers, and the bulletin
states that residents and keepers of
grocery stores, meat markets, confec
tioneries, etc., must either suffer con
siderably or almost constantly use poi
son or barriers of various kinds. The
,farmer, nurseryman, and truck grower
find scale insects and aphids more
troublesome because of the protection
the ant gives to insects depositing
Three methods of controlling the in
sect are discussed in the bulletin
the usa of barriers, poisons and traps.
Ant Barriers.--In grossly infested
houses much relief may be secured
by isolating tables, refrigerators,
safes, beds, etc., with bichloride of
mercury tape, but extreme care should
be taken in using this poison. Piacing

outdoor objects may be isolated with

Ant Polsons.-Strong antimony or
arsenical sirups, a number of which
are sold by druggists in infested ter

from buildings. They gfive quick relief

PROFITABLE TO PRODUCE'HAY
Southern Farmer Can RaIse Feed for
$10 to $18 Per Ton--Why Pay
Northerner Bigger Price?
Folks like bargains. If they can
lbuy at cost they will often go to
town and lead up with things they do
not need just because they are cheap.
If the muprchant plncardis his goods at
cost he has no strouble in selling his
stock and a great rmany farmers take
advantage of the "great sacrifiee that
must be made in 80 (lays."
It is funny that there are so many
who never think of sellIng themselves
something at cost. Take hay for in
stance. Suppose that northern hay
is selling for $20 a ton. Suppose again
thpt the Florida farmer can produce a
tea of hay for $10 to $15. He could
sell himself that hay at cost and keep
the difference, whleh hre would have to
pay for northern haty, in his pocket.
That five or ten dloitars is worth sav
ing. It is probable also that the profit
wouild be greater since tihe price of
northrernr hay is usunally higher thaa
$20 and hary probably can be produced
in Florida chenper than $10 a ton.

MANURE PRODUCED AT HOME
FortIlizer Should Ncot Be Allowed to
Accumulate in Stalls-Apply
Soon as Possible,
The horse manure produced at horne
should not be allowetd to accumulate
in the stalls for longer than a few
days at a time. Preferably it should
be applied as soon as posslible after
being made and should be plowed uin
der at the firs,t opportunity.
At times when the land is occupIed
by growing crops, the manure is best
conservedl by placing It unader cover
or In a basin or pit In the barnyard.:
If, in addition, it can be firmly packed
and satuiratell with wvater occasional
