Feeuie one of the in. u bines nt cost
laid down in Pin. mt. ami a giont
many farmers who hae already -con
a sample have placed older- for them.
The News is iiifoimed that the cost
per ninchine will not exceed Sfi.OD.
It is believed that this method is
supeiior to the plan of poisoning the
weevils. First, no additional labor is
required to use the catcher, as it fas
tens to the cultivator, and catches
the posts while cultivation is in pro
gress. Second, the cost is nothing
compared to the damage weevils can
do to own n Mug, ncro of cotton.
Third, except for a few cents worth
of kerosene, the first cost is tho total
cost, not only for one but for many
years of operation.
In poisoning tho weevils, n separate
operation is needed, nnd the poison
coRts money. The News is informed
that the cost of applying poison runs
as high as $5.00 per acre for each ap
plication. Then again, one infected
arpinro. containing hundreds of wee
vil eggs. Is n greater future menaco
than many grown weevils, nnd it is
not believed that the poisoning pro
cess will destrup or even reach the
eggs hidden In the squnres. and it is
the Infected squnres thnt constitute
the greatest menaco to the crop.
Boll Weevil Killing Machine Convin
ces All Who See It Work That
It Will Catch The Weevil
The boll weevil machine is patented
by W. C. nigh of Thackcrville. and
tho county right of which has been
purchased by the Chamber of Com
merce. Demonstrations convince all
who have seen it work thnt it will
cerlnlnly catch the weevils.
Messrs. Cnr Sullivan nnd Chas.
Smith of Albany tried one of tho ma
chines this, week nnd were in Durant
later with n coffee pot full of weevils
the machine had caught and killed.
A demonstration of the machine
was also made at Dcnnlngton and It
