"Weevils are almost entirely depen- d
dent upon cotton for feeding and 0
Wreeding. After the crop has matured, L
the late growth of squares (forms), s
blooms and young bolls makes t Y
breeding place for the weevils. In old
infested fields it is *a common sight v
to find from one to six weevils on each
growing plant in the field. This means
that from 5,000 to 25,000 weevils per
acre may be found at the time of the li
first killing frost. It i$ a ,well estab- a'
lished fact that weevils developing tl
late In the fall are those which are n
most likely to pass the winter safely, fl
It is therefore extremely important ti
that this late weevil development be h1
prevented as far as possible. Most C
of the weevils continue to feed and n
breed as long as green cotton is to be S
found in the fields. Wien the first g
killing frost occurs, most weevils '
seek protection from the cold by find- It
6$g shelter in any kind of rubbish in b
and around the cottonfieilds as a Place e
in which to pass the winter in the bI
dormant state. This dorimant condi
tion is spoken of as hibernation. Nor. Il
mally, the weevils do not fly very far
from the cotton fields for hibernation. y
The most favorable conditions for the
weevil to pass the winter successfully
are found in those fields in 'which the 12
cotton stalks, dead grass, weeds, fallen n
loaves and other rubbish, commonly I1
founed in the fields where no cleaning
up is done until spring planting time,
are allowed to reial.

MASS MEETING IS CALLED
TO DISCUSS TAXATION
Mass Meeting to be Held in the Court
House Salesday in January. County
IDelegation Invited to Attend.
A mass meeting of the citizens of
the county has been called to meet
in the Court (House on January 3rd,
immediately after the legal sales, to
discuss taxes for the cominng year.
The meeting was called by the direc
tors of the local chamber of com
merce upon a resolution of '\r. W. L.
Gray. The senator and members of
the lower -hou;e of the general assem
bly from the county are invited to tc
present to take part in the discussions.
In !j resenting his resolution calling
for the mass meeting, Mr. Gray said
that the proposed increase in the state
appropriations this year is a subject
that should call for the deep thought
of the tax payers and that the people's
re'pr eentatives should have an idea of
th' pu blic sent.iment before f.they go
diown to Columbia in January.

Fort Mill, Dec. 24.--W. It Bradford
of Fort Mill, who for the 'past two
years has been chairman of the ways
rind means committee of the house of
representatives, announcd to a num
ing from the conference in Columbia
last Friday, called by Goernor Cooper,
to consider the tax situation, that he
would not seek reappointment to the
chairmanship of the ways and moans
committee at the session of -the gen
eral assembly to open on January 11.
Mr. Bradford added that he understood
there were other applicants for the
chairmanship, and that so far as he
was concerned they were welcome to
