of those in the Piedmont section of the
South, K- divided into a number of
small fields, Inclosed by wooded
stretches and necessarily terraced to
prPvent erOsionsR. More than this. Mr.
Holder runs a gin for the farmers in
his imnediato section and all his
neighbors bring him a plentiful sup
ply of weevils with their seed cotton
each fall.
These (uterprising fellows want

Rlight toen Mr. Holder saw that he
hand a roal light ol his hands. -General
ly speaking, he is a .peacofui citizen.
lut whent he found that Mr. Weevil
had declared war on him, 'he very
promptly severad relations with Mr.
Weevil and decided tirat he would use
force to the uttermost. He did pass
a few notes bLt these were for the
plurposo of seeking suitable allies. in
his campaign and not to argue diplo
inatic quetsions. .So he studied all the
bulletins and information that could
be secured about methods of 'fighting
the veevil. Some of his information
stated that one thing was the only
way to control the weevil, some said
that another plan had 'been -success
fil, others thad still another, so '.Mr.
iHolder lookod them all over carefully
and from them planned a composite
camilaign suited to his own particular
needs on his own particular farm.
First, ho reasoned that if 'he must
fight the weevil, -he must have 4omne
thing worth fighting for. -lie must
have a high yielding crop. To do this,
he prepared his land carefully -and in
I elligently and had 'his seed bed in
the uasual good shape before planting.
Then he pit down n 10-2-Y fertilizer
at the rate of about -100 pounds per
acre. He wanted -lots of phosphoric
acid that would push his cotton to
Carly maturity, lie wanted some nitro
gen to make vegetative growth, and
he wanted potash to keep the cotton
in a healthy, thrifty condition that
would withstand disease. In soine
cases, he increased the amnonht * 'of
phosphoric 'acld to 1 peir cent. instead
of 10 per cent. With his land inl good
shape. his fertilizer applied, he knew
then that ho needed. good -seed of a
high yielding variety, so he planted
the Wailutnaker Viveland big boll
tottoii. To make his crop sure of
yielding well, -lie l.ater aiplied a top
dressing of 200 pounds per acre of a
mixture analyzing a-bout 7 -per cent,

After making all this investment in an
labor, seeds and fertilizer, i1r. Holder ba
says that he was in the same position
as Uncle Remus' rabbit, he -was "Just he

com1pelled to light the weevil. He henrd it.
about a boll weevil trap that had been to
used successfully. So he bought some sit
of the traps and when his cotton was M
about a foot high, he had his hands to lk

I won't try to give an accurate de- ed
scriptlon of this trap, but it is fixed at'
it that it goes (own over each side to
of the cotton plants. Hlanging down to

gave his cotton a start over the pest. se'

that traliimg the early weevils is a
good way to secure control over ti.

when the first adults come from the yo
woods and other witner quarters, he Ca
prevented a spread of the insects over I
his entire cotton fields, and to this, in sa
a large measure, does he attribute his
success In growing cotton this past go
season. ac
Polson to Rescue ha
When the trapping was over, the lirl
Weevils sooni were getting thick ha
again. Mr. Holder know that while the ad
cotton was still small he- could use an
the ipoisoned sweetened mixture to inj
some advantage. So lie .bought a mn
supply of the calcium arsenate and er
inadei up a formula as follows: Ten
pouids of calcium arsenate, ten pl
gallons of water, two packages ice re
cream powder, two ounces of sacca- ha
The packages of ice cream powder ag
held a pound each and were of .a kind th<
that, as Mr. Holder says, "looks some- tri
what like malted milk." This mixture
was sticky and somewhat oft' the Co
first Mr. Bolder had this daubed on
the plants with a mop-like contrivance,
but he soon found this to be too slow
and a groat waste of labor, so he be- .
gan emperiment.ing and finally envolved
a small hand machine for putting
on the, mixture, This consisted of a
small tin bucket soldered on .top of a
Uin sled-like taffair that could -be
easily carried along over the tops of
the young cotton plants. In the bot
tom of the bucket were two sinall hbles- n
fromi which were dropped two ikmel -fi
wicks. At the end of each wick a small..
,stone 'was tied to make it hang down L
:atnd so 'give each plant a dose of the
.sweetoened miixtur'e. With a fnan going ti
along the row hioldlig this mnachinie
just so that it would give each planit
a good treatmnent, and with the tl
yountger boys on the place keeping this
.mnachine supplied with the poison,
Mr. Holder was able 'to treat a large
area more successfully than 'by the
old method.
He found also 'that his sweetened
poIson formed a kind of "honey deve"1
,on each plant. anid that the weevils
rseemed to take a i'ancy for tis, both hl
as a food and a beverage. Three days -
after puttinig on this pioison, Mr. __
Holder 'got all hands to picking up the
fallen squnares and then in about six
days he went over the field with his
dusting .machines. 'He used the rotary
hand dusters ,whiich distributed the
calcium arsenate very effectively. He
notIced that the poIson dust stuck to
the plant miuch better -where it had
previously been treated with the
sweetened mixture.
Picked Up Squares
The cotton was given three dustings
of about, four or flve days intervals.
Unfortunately, between the second and
t-hird dustings lie had to walt nine
(lays because of rain, but even then
he had the fallen squares Ipieiked upi
and lhe continued to have these
uquiares picked uip and burned. Once
he decidhed to stop ,for a few days,
Sc) ehi let the lIttle negro -boys and
girls get ready for school, but then

Pick up squtares and dust again until
this outbreak was more or less con

pickIng up -fallen nquaires until the
day 'before he star'ted pickinig cotton,

lie not only studied the work of'
other pople, but lie did consider'able
expertimental m'ork of -his own. He
testeid out his sweeitenled mixture and
found that a dirop on a square would
poison the weevils in 12 'hours. lie
also tested them as to their hperiod of
emergence fr'om the square so that lhe
would know about when to look for the
different broods,
Next year he intends to makle his
picking up of squares eahier by
building a horse drawn machine for
pulling the squares out into the middle~
of the row and having a wide heavy
wheel on the machine 'which can
