At this time, when coal has gone
sky high, it is comforting to know that
the supply of wood in this vicinity is
not exhausted and that it possesses the
same old heating qualities it had be
iore coal got to be so stylish. Cord
wood right at this time or a little
later ought to be a mighty saleable
colinnodity ini the towns and cities.
'The maul whlo iiihas it on his place enal1
sell it to itdvantage and let it take
t;, p4lac of the cotton he counted on
niaving but of which the boll weevil

set forth in tihe letter of the cotunty
agent In this paper week -before last,
scattered 'broadcast by letters during
the past week and rep~rinted again on
the fi'ont page of today's paper. Brief
ly tlie plan is to low0 tunder cotton
stalks at a (late as early as possible
consistent wvith the season. Trhe ob
ject ;is two-fold, firtst, to bulry mlost of
the weevils, endIng thleir life, and,
secoind, to remove thir~l food su~pply, it
being known that tihe -weevil lives

as possibleC, thle wveevil' goes Into Win
ter (luarter's in ani alr~eady -weakened
condition and standls less chianti
surlviving the wviiter...
Thie expeOriecelC of seIlenttits in ex
perimientation and of farmers in re -
tual practice, even in tItis county or
.Laur1enls, is that plowing unditer the
stalks has far-reaching results. Tis,.
wo believe, is admitted on all sides.
'The individuaA farmer who follows
the 'program proflts \by -It to a certain
extent. But its success is largely af
feoted by his next door neighbor who
may ors may not fol110v the program. A
u-.w3ef cfort on the dar- or afi thu
farmers, it is safe to say, would mean
millions of dollars to- the faraners of
The obstacles to putting through i
voluntary ,program as would bring the
most practical results are obvious.
S'omde farmers, like some townsfolk,
are too slothful to (10 this extra work
where no immediate profit is in sight.
And again, renters of land, who .may
plan to move elsewhere in the spring,
will not ordinarily plow or prepare
land for some other tenant who will
succeed him. Other diijiculties arise.
To overcome all obstacles and to
guarantee a co-ordinated effort on the
part of all the farmers, it has occurred
to The Advertiser that the legislatur:
might enact a law making it a crim
inal offense for any land-owner to
leave cotton stalks standing in his
fields after a certain date which may
appear reasonable. For the land-owner
i% ho rents out his land. provision may
be made for him to transfer the re
sponsibility by incororating in his
rent contract a provish1il that the
renter shall plow under his stalks as
a part of Iiis contract or become the
responsible party. To prevent undue
hardship by reason of change in sea
sons, the governor might .be invested
with authority to extend the iinal date,
counilty by county, when it appears to
him that conditions justify it.
The Advertiser does not advocate
such a law. It merely suggests it as
a law which the farmers may advo
cate. The Advertiser is not inl)-he
farming business and naturally would
he Lree from such a drastic law. For
that reason we do not w isli to appear
as advising that such a law be passed.
Ilowevcr. it has occurred to us that
such ai Iaw would be effective, could he
fram1ed with such reasonable prov'
sionls that it would not work a hard
ship oil anybody and at the same tilt',
nost important of all, it woo d bring
ab')uit that. co-ordinated effort of the
flirmers of the state which is admit
tedly ne cessary if the 1boll weevil is to
fought with any reasonable degree of
Thie Advertiser "would like to have
the Views of its farmer readers on the
sulaject. If the plan appeals to the
farmers of ILaurens county it will ap
peal to the farmers of all the counties
