How to Fight the Cotton Worn.
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

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

both at New Orleans, Louisiana and
Birmingham, Alabama, can probably
supplv it more conveniently than any
other firm that we have been able to
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

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.

Your undersigned petitioners respectfully
state that John Meeks was indicted at the March

fight which arose out of the mistreatment by
Walter Jones of his wife. Both negroes armed
themselves with shotguns, both shot, the result
being the death of Walter Jones, who was con
sidered a quarrelsome and dangerous negro,
having been before the courts and fin <1 on
many occasions; John Meeks having ev--en
gaged in any previous difficulty or bee . te ore
the criminal courts as defendant. On April the
7th. 1906. John Meeks was convicted of man
slaughter and sentenced to the penitentiary ior
a term of ten years, where he now is making a
model prisoner, and in the opinion of your peti
tioners has been sufficiently punished, and your
petitioners respectfully pray Your Excellency
that John Meeks be grshted a pardon.
