Considerable :.ublicity has been ;iv
en a proposed boil weevil extermainant
which has recently Leen apparently
resurrected in Georgia after it had
been abandoned for about five years.
The difference between the poison
mixture proposed and that ordinarily
used is that it provides for, a sweet
smelling ingredient to attract the
weevi! rather than to wait for hin,
to hit upon the poison in his travels
over the stalk. A formula of molasses
and calcium arsenate is used which
in some sections, is said to have prov
en very successful. However. aglicul
tural experts have come out w. ith a
statement to the effect that the mix
ture is useless. The AdvertisEr has
mutch respect for our scientinfe work
