LAURENS, S. C., JULY 27, 1921
"I have been in hundreds of torwns
and cities during the ,past few
months," said Col. T. ID'. Darlington in
a telephone message to The Adver
tiser several days ago, "and I have
not seen a prctlier public square than
we have in Laurens. Nothing I have
seen excells it In beauty and tasteful
arrangement. The ladies of the Civic
League are to be congratulated on Its
ap)earailce.'' The same thing has
.been said by other local traveling -men,
Lr. T. J. 'McAlister saying practically
the same thing as Col. Darlington,
while many out-of-town people have
,been heard to commilieIlt on the beau
ties of our present "show place." The
Advertiser agrecs with theii all and
thinks the Civie League has made a
genuine hit in th:'jr work at beauti

of the coun ty's foreiost products,
loves to hark U.'ek in his writings to
his old county and no one is more con

article, reprinted today, deals largely
with Maj. Jonathan Downs, an early
patriot, whose memory most of us
-have sadly ieglected. Dr. Daniels
suggests that we erect a monument in
his memory aid we ought to do it.

PROF. MOORE EXI
Says, Prel iminary Experiments War.
rants Optinaistic View of Outcome.
Striking in Results.
Dr. Andrew C. Moore, of the facul
ty of the University of South Carolina,
had the 'comnnunicatlon in The State
Monday morning in regard to -the boll
weevil, poison remedy ,which The An
vertiser and other South Carolina pa
pers.have published news items about
during the past few weeks:
Fron time to time I have noteti
accounts of ploionling the holl wee
vil by the use of a mixture of cal
clum crsenate with blackstrap mo
lasses. Knowing the general un re
liability of the olservations and etn
clusions of those Who have had no
training in Ecle'ntliflc experimentation,
I have pl-aced little faith in these re
ports. Ilowever, to satigfy a natural
curiosity and perchance to add to out
too meager knowledge of the boll
weocvil, I ha':e just convleted apr
limniinary experiment, ,.which is staik
in g in its results, so much so that I
hasten to replort on it wtli the hode
that it may cven this lato day (lelmi
farmers to check to some extent thi:
rave ges of the boll Weevil this season.
The experiment was conducted as
follows: U(ler each of four large
glass jars a stalk of cotton was placed.
The jars were n u mber-ed I, 2, :1 and
1. Into each three live antd active
-boll weevils Were introdulced. Te
latter promlil.Ay en te'red the squ arVes
and fed freely upon them. A few
drops of .poisoned molasses were thcd
placed upon the leaves of the plantt
in jars 1, 2 and 3. Al a cheek, the
.plant. in jar No. 4 was lqft without
The next morning one weevil in
jar No. I was dead and two in Ja:
No. 2. Diring the several follow ng
days others died, until oti the lIfth
day all three weevils in each of the
three poisoned jars were dead. O
the tiree weevls plac d in t1he zt
poisoned jar ene was well and active.
one was acciden-4ally crushed in re
rcmov ing the jar, ad the -third coUnhi
not. he fonild. 'IhIe observed facts.
therefore, are that in cach of the
poisoiCd jars all the ,w ccvils werce
found dead, while not:e in the u:!
poIsoned jar died a iiatutil fitat.
To make sulre of t'tIC cause ii
death. r. G. F. lipSCOmi of the de
patmt auth of ci st1 Iry madea che m
ical .analysis of the bdies of tile de. d
weevils and found that they con t d
