LAURENS, S. C., MAY 24, 1922
Politicians counting on using the
governorship during the next two
years as a stepping stone to the sena
torship ncmx held by Senator Dial may
find when the time comes that the
st :s are not (ulite high enough.

R(ports are reaching the city of the
early arrival of the boll tweevil in this
county, many fa -mers having already
found them on tiv mall cotton plants.
It will be recalled that the government
xpe rts predicted that this would hap
pen in view of the mild winter and
other favorable boll weevil conditions.
The -ame expert knowledge that en
abled the government cx.. erts to pre
dict defiintely tlie early arrival of the
weevil this year is at the service of
the farmers in making the fight on the
weevil. The Advertiser makes men
tion of thisi fact to stress the import
ance of listening to the paid agenfA of
the government in fighting t)4 boll
