(Aditorial in Augusta 'Chronicle.)
Mr. Dozier 1-ill; of Gough, Ga.
originator of the molasses plan of boll
WeeVil poisoning, came to the Chron.
lole yesterday and discussed with .th(
'editor details concerning the method
Which latige. niumbers of farmers nou
say Is .giving the most; excellent re
sults.. According to Mr. Hill the boll
weevil -problem, insofar as it affectt
his immediate section, has gone o
long way toward solution. In fet, he
feels that he has an excellent citanct
to make a good crop 'nd that his cro:
will not be ruined by -the -boll ,weevil
He .feels that conditions othe'r thar
the boll weevil must Interfere tc
make the crop a failure.
Just here let The 'Chronicle makc
-.Itself clear once more on this mattet
of the .boll weevil. We have 'urge(
the farmer to -use every remdy sug.
gested and decide upon that whicl:
is the best. We have urged that mo
lasses, and calcium arsenate be tried
that dusting be tried and every othei
remedy tried. Despite the fact thal
the government experts h1ave contend
-ed that the molasses-calcium arsonatt
plan was of no avail we have urge(
that it be faithfully tried because th<
'government sometimes goes wrong.
We have now received evidenct
from so many different sections an
from so many dilerent farmers thal
it appears the molasses plan has dem
onstrated its success. We hope thal
It will continue throughout the entir<
cotton season the success that tde ex.
perimnnts thus far have proven it t(
be.

In Sunday's Chrosicle we stated
that there were some things about the
molasses method of poisoning which
we'did not know, but which -we would
like to learn so as to pass the tip
along to the farmers. This brought
Mr.. Hill to The Chronicle office to
explain certain points which he, as
the originator of the plan, 'could ex.
plain .better than any one else.
"Last, year I made an average of
11 bales Iper plow on 165 plows," said
Mr. Hill, "though Burke county .was
badly hit by the boll weevil. My mo
lasses plan was arrived at only after
a series of experiments with various
remedies. I tried out .the molasses
with other )olsons, 'but finding calci
um arsenate was the .best of them all
I went back to the molasses-calcium
arsenate plan which I have used ever
since and which is being used on hun
dreds of farms In Burke county and
throughout this sectio of the coun
try.
"Since the first news of my remedy
was given through The Chronicle my
mall has been growing heavier and
heavier and P am now receiving hun
dreds and hundreds of letters. I
spend several hours cael. night an
swering thrin. Of coutrse, I am glad
to pass alon the liformation that I
have for I am firmly convinced that
thi iolasseQ. ren'edy ha$ Siaved this
section of the South from disaster,
because without a thoroughly success
fill method of boll weevil poisonirng
this year we could not hope to make
much 'of a crop).
"I am very glad to clear up any
matters that you have suggested in
Yotur editorial colbinns. In the -first
place, fiow often to poisoi I would
say, of course, to poison as often as
necessary, though the question then
arises, when will you know it is nec
essary. You will know by the squares
ralling. The government conteld
that there should be no ipoisonilng un
less there Is 15 per cent infestation.
The average farmer will find it diff
cult to tell whether there is 15 per
cenot or 30 per cent. The first applli
cation of the molasso should cover
levery stalk in the ve-d with a small
am'iioiit of molasses In the bud. Then
watch the field closely for (lead

*ihieh has been poisoned, do what I
call "ring poisoning," that id. to say
Place poison on all stalks within au
imaginary circle -that are five feet
distant from the stalk under whion
you find the squares. This will obvi
ate the necessity of- going over the
entire .field to cover a few isolated
squots where there may be a iweevil
operating. The "ring poisoning" will
get the weevil operating in that par
ticular locality without fail.
"Of course, you must ipick up the
squares and .burn them. This should
-be done all of the time and farmers
who neglect to do this are in for a
great deal of trouble when the weevils
are hatched out. 'When the cotton is
i) about -knee high and there is a
large bush instead of a very small
stalk, I have a plan of poisoning
through a iguano horn. I take a regn
lation horn and put a wooden stopper
in the end of It and through the
wooden stopper I drill a small hole
about half the size of a lead pencil.
I pour the guano horn full of io
lasses, with the calcium- arsenate so
lution, and it pours out on the cot
ton in a small stream. Sometimes the
molasses doesnt flow as it should, so
I have a stick ,with a mop on the end
of it which fits snugly in the horn
like a staff, or plunger, fits into a ipop
gun. This forces the molasses to pour
out when there is any tendency to clog
in the horn. The advantage of this
method is that there is a little stream
of molasses going on both sides of
the cotton and across the to) of the
stalk or the bu(]. A man can go down
the row with this guano horn almost
ats fast as distribultiig guano. I know
it is diflicult to explain this guano
horn method so I am going to leave
it with yot and any farmers who wish
to see it can comle to The Chronicle
office. .
"I have made all sorts of tests on
this boll weevil poisoing. For in
stance, last year in a tlele I plowed
up ill except the each t wentieth row
in a field of Cotton. I waited then
for two or three days until the leavex
were dead and I then applied molas
es and calchin arsenate to the re
maininig rows. All of the weevils had
left, tle cottoll whielh was iplowed('l up
an11d concentrated ol the remaining
rows. I placed lpaper u nIder. the
stalks on each twen tieth row and
the boll i.v(evils file next day were
dead in su1ch0 q luantlitles as to remind
you of' fliles onl by paper.
