We have received cotton worms dar ing tbe past few days from mans sec tions cf Mississippi, including > jxt> - bee. Clay, Lowndes and Monroe coon tiM id tb© eastern tod CUiborne iso Leflore in tbe western half of tbe state. Tbe indications are that they will » much more numerous doling tbe neat month It will pay eyeryone to be on tbe outlook for them and to be pre pared to fight them. However, it may not be wise to go to too much expense aa it it possible that tbe worms will be destroyed by tbeir natural paiaaitaa and inatead of becoming more numer ous, tbe may entirely disappear. We base found that some of tba worms that have been sent to us bays been parasitised. It is to be hoped that these parasites will increase so rapid ly that tbe worms will be exterminat ed rery soon. Powderad^araeoate of lead is tne^iest remedy for tbe cotton worm, applied io tbe same manner aa Peril, green was formerly need It ie dotted on tbe plants by a mao on a mule from sacks fastened at eacb end of a pole about aa long as tbe rows are wide. Tbe sacks ete made of two tbiekoeesee of cbeeae cloth. ("Bom OMubur*" waa formerly used for Paris green but the cbeeee cloth seems to be more sa tisfactory. ) Tbe pole should be e atrip of oek, or other etrong wood, about one and a half by two inebea end __ long aa the rows are wide. A one inch bele is bored about fire inches from ©Ecb ©od. A sack is tast©n©d n each end of tbe pole, tbe edgea of tbe opening of tbe sack are tacked to tbe narrow sides ol tbe pole. Tbe sacks are tilled by pouring tbe poison through a tunnel inserted in the boles through tbe pole above tbe sacks. Tbe poison is distributed bv a man riding on a mule carrying a pole with the sacks attached at eacb end Tbe central part of the pole rests on tbe saddle and tbe sacks of poison bang over tbe rows of cotton. Tbe mule is then ridden in a trot down tbe rows and the motion causes the powdered poison to be shaken out and quite evenly distributed over tbe plants. Tbe amount of powdered arsenate of lead to be used to tbe acre depends upon tbe size of the plants and tbe care with which the work is Acne Prom two to three pounds will prob ably ba found to be moet satisfactory although from one and one-half to four pounds per acre may be used, de pending upon conditions. Powdered arsenate of lead may be purchased, depending upon tbe quan tity, at from eighteen cents to twenty five cents per pound Meny firms manufacture tbi* substance. Orasaelli Chemical Company located both at New Orleans, Louisiana and Birmingham, Alabama, can probably supplv it more conveniently than any other firm that we have been able to hear^of. Where Paris green is on band, tbu substance will be satisfactory but Paris green should always be mixed with at least ten times as much flour or other powdery substance. However, experiments have shown that Pans green injures tbe cotton plant and that cotton will not produce as heavily where it bas been used. Powdered arsenate of lead can be used at any strength It will not injai© the plant® at all. Tbe chief thing to be «®em beied is that tbe powder should be evenly distributed over tbe plants. Tbe arsenate will be applied most sat isfactorily without mixing it with any other substance. We^advise that evervoBe have the poles'and sacks made as soon as tbe first worms appear. It will also pay to keep a small supply of powdered arsenate of lead on band it arrange ments cannot, be made for this sub stance to be supplied immediately when it is needed.

Jfyusuwtl Ji/Lcxccuntitc EBENEZER, MISS be prepared to order a large enough supply of the poison to cover bis entire cotton crop if necessary. Tbe worms work very rapidly and there is no time to be wasted after they once ap pear as they can do a great deal of damage in a veiy abort time If a rain comes just after tbe poison is applied and washes it off of tba plants another dotting will be necessary, oth erwise one dusting will do for eacb ' crop' ' or generation of worms. Where either powdered arsenate of lead or Paris green is used,care should be taken to let aa little as possible of tbe powder get into tbe eves or mouth of the man and tbe mule and these poisons should be bandied with care. Many take tbe precaution te wear some sort of gloves when these poi sons bate to be bandied. However, with reasonable care there is little danger from tbe use of these substan ces After using these poisons tbe mules should be washed off and tbe clothes of tbe people working with it should be thoroughly shaken. It is best io work early in tbe morning while the dew is on tbe plants It is a useless waste of time and poison to apply tbe poison when it is not actually needed. Many people make this mistake during evei v cctton worm scare. It is useless to poison a whole plantation if tbe worms are con fined to a small patch nr two.
