BOLL WEEVIL
TRAP FAKERS
Bishopville and Lancaster De
port Peddlers of Devices
(Bishopville Vindicator.)
Our hat is off to Chief Stewart
for having enough backbone to
move from the streets of Bishop
ville all peddlers and fakers who
are trying to sell weevil extermi
nators to the farmers who visit
Bishopville. Any man with a grain
of sense knows that such a device
as has been offered for sale here
is a fake. We have no sympathy
for a sensible man who will invest
in such a contraption, but wc are
glad that Mr. Stewart is willing to
use his common sense and his
authority to protect those who are
unsuspecting and too ignorant to
know better than, patronize the fa
kers. The mayor of the town of
Lancaster has run out a faker sim
ilar to this, and doubtless there
are other towns who will not stand
for having their citizens fleeced out
of money in this way.
Mayor of Lancaster Deports "Wcc
Atl" Faker.
A young man blew into town a
few days ago with a patent boll
weevil exterminator for sale at $5
per.. It v.as an innocent looking
little attachment to'fit on a plow
stock and the principle of its ope
I ration was simple. A tank contain
; ed a liquid poisonous mixture
I which filtered through two brush
es to the cotton stalks. The claim
I was that when the poison and the
; boll weevil met the boll weevil was
[ out of luck. The agent made some
extravagant claims about how
I many of the implements he had
j sold Coker's farm at Hartsyille,
and County Agent Howel wired Mr.
Coker and received reply to the
effect that the Coker farms had
! not bought any of them. Upon the
strength of this the mayor was
culled upon to stop the sale, and
the agent departed to more verdant j
pastures. Xot. however, until hej
had taken in a good many good
Lancaster count, five dollar bills.

women's clubs have had on the
social, political and economic life:
of the state was painted by speak- ,
eis tonight at the opening session
of a two-days' convention of South
Carolina Federation of Women's j
club:-, meeting here.
The address of welcome was de- |
livered by Governor Cooper and the j
response was made by Mrs. Leroy

president of the federation. Mrs.
W.- S. Jennings, of Florida, vice :
president of the American Federa- '

SHOOT CAR I
OPERATORS
j
Attack Made on Non-Union;
Men at Columbia
Columbia. April 1?.?A street
car manned by Motorman Bradley,
of Spartanburg. and Conductor
Livingston, of Xewberry. was at- j
tacked tonight abont !? o'clock in j
front of Columbia College, by an I
automobile full of armed men and |
the motorman and conductor were]
shot, neither seriously.
According to. the management I
of the Columbia Railway. Gas and
Electric company, the automobile
drove past the ear at a fast rate:
of speed and the occupants opened
tire. Bradley was shot in the hip
and in the knee*, and a bullet!
grazed the leg of Livingston.
Bradley was taken to a local hos- :
pita! and Livingston remained at j
work. The motorman and the
conductor;and State Officer William \
Darreugh, who was riding en thej
car for its protection, opened Grej
on the automobile but tin- car was j
going too fast for their shots to!
be effective, they thought. The
Winchester carried on the (,ar. theyi
stated, jammed, otherwise, they be- j
lieve they could have shot one ?>r :
more of the two or three occupants j
of the automobile.
Livingston and Bradley took thej
places of striking street car men
when the company commenced the
operation of its cars several weeks]
ago. This is the first attack made
on the cars since they commenced
operating under non-union condi- .
tions. Police protection has been'
afforded them continuously by the
state, county and city. County au
thorities believe they know the
names of men in the automobile?
a touring car?and arrests are <-x
pected hi a short while.

Kind.?As a rule S-3-3 is rec
ommended, for clayey soils and S
3-6 for the lighter and poorer soils
However, the growers should be
governed to a large extent by lo
ci 1 conditions. The use of stable
manure is cautiously recommended,
since if improperly applied it r<?
sults in disease. Xitrate of soda
and sulphate of ammonia, if used,
should be used with caution.
Amount.?Four hundred to six
hundred pounds per acre of the
proper formula should be used on
soils which produce a bale of cot
ton per acre. Six hundred to
twelve hundred pounds per acre
should be used on the lighter and
poorer soils.
How Applied -Fertilizer should
be applied in the drill and mixed
well with (he soil. If barnyard ma
nure is used, it should be applied
broadcast and preferably given to
tin- preceding crop.
