States" would
not bc com
plete without
u brief men
tion of tho
other terri
tory of the United Stutes, which
ls not lncludod In the actual for
ty-eight states. The biggest of
these territories ls Alaska, with
an area of 600,884 square miles.
This huge region was under Rus
sian domination until 1807 when
tho United States purchased it
for $7,200,000, or less than two
cents nn acre. There was some
grumbling at the time by a few
congressmen over "adding a re
frigerator to the United States."
But ?the refrigerator has been
found to be well stocked with
gold, coal, forests and fisheries,
BO that Alaska has proven a
profitable investment
Hawaii, like Alaska, ls a reg
ular territory. In 1898 there
was a successful revolution
against the Hawaiian queen, and
a provisional government was
formed ander American protec
tion. In 1898, at the request of
tho population, Hawaii was an
nexed to the United States.
Porto Rico, Guam and the Phil
ippines were ceded to the United
states in 1899 as a resolt of the
Spanish-American war. Porto
Rico and the Philippines are de
pendencies and not territories.
Their local affairs are adminis
tered by a legislature of two
houses and they are represented
In the United States by resident
commissioners elected by the leg
islatures. Guam ls under the
control of naval officers In com
mand of naval stations. Under
similar naval control are the
Tutulla group and Samoa,
which were ceded in 1899 by
Great Britain and Germany.
Then there ls the Panama Ca
nal Zone, which was purchased
from Panama In 1904 for $10,
000,000. This ls governed by the
Isthmian Ganai commission
The year 1917 saw the pur
chase'from' Denmark of the Vir
gin Islands, for ?20,000,000.
These aggregate only 150 square
miles and are temporarily gov
erned by a naval officer.
Finally, there ls the District
of Columbia, which was organ
ized in 1701, as the seat of onr
federal government. Tho resi

University ot South Carolina Man
liaa Hoon Experimenting.
(The State, Feb. 23.)
O. J. Lipscomb, professor of chem
istry in the University of South Car
olina, offers to the growers'of cotton
a plan based on laboratory experi
ments, which, it is believed, will
save to them millions of- dollars in
preventing the disease commonly
known as boll rot, and many mil
lions of dollars besides by hurrying
tho germination and growth of tho
cotton plant, and in that way getting
ahead of the boll weevil pest.
Tho central Idea that Prof. Lips
comb has developed has been the
elimination of boll rot and other dis
eases that affect the cotton plant.
This is brought about by heating to
bolling temperature after thoroughly
drying the seed, and by Immersion
for a short period in concentrated
sulphuric acid. This treatment not
only kills the disease germs, but al
so completely removes the lint. The
laboratory experiments made by Dr.
Lipscomb indicate that the process
will be altogether successful and ns
near fool-proof as any operation, and
lt takes no elaborate apparatus or
machinery for the treatment of the
peed. In fuct, any farmer with a
inetnl pot and sulphuric acid of the
proper strength can do the necessary
' work to insure first the elimination
of tho germ disease In the cotton
seed, and. second, to bring nbout an
early germination of tho seed.
Wide ICxpcriiuciit.s.
! Tho experiments have covered ov
ery possible anglo, both in the lab
oratory and in tho use of the seod,
and have been carried on over a pe
riod of two years of intensive work
by Dr. Lipscomb in the university
The cotton seed subjected to this
treatment will come up within 30 or
3(i hours, while seeds which have
not been treated in this way require
four or five days.
The removal of anthracnose, or
boll rot, prevents the injury or de
struction lo the crop by cold weather
while the plants are small. The boll
weevil nourishes In cold weather and
Its removal makes the plant hardier.
Tho removal of the lint by the Lips
comb treatment will pormlt tho use
of a mechanical planter placing two
or three seeds to a hill, thus remov
ing the necessity of later chopping
out tho extra plants with a hoe, as
, is the custom at present. Dr. Lips
comb and some of his associates on
the faculty are now at work on a
planter that will make use of this
idea. The chopping out of the sur
plus cotton plants disturbs the earth
about those that are left and retards
growth for a week or'two. These Im
provements will advance the crop,
and to that extent aid In overcoming
! the ravages of the boll weevil. The
, removal of lint by the sulphuric acid
i process permits the floating of in
fertile seed so that only perfect seed
are planted.
A Resume of Process.
Briefly stated, the process that has
been worked out by Dr. (Lipscomb is
, first drying and then heating of the
' seed to a temperature of boiling wa
j ter, and then treating with strong
j sulphuric acid. Tho sulphuric acid
? is employed for the purpose of re
I moving the lint and tho outer coat
ing of the cotton seed, thereby kill
ing all fungus diseases, particularly
the boll rot. According to the exper
iments of Dr. 'Lipscomb, In actual
practico it may not be necessary or
advisable to use the heating treat
ment, the experiments having shown
that the simple use of strong sul
phuric acid will Temove 98 per c
of tho disease from the seod while it
is removing the lint and strengthen
ing the outer coating of the seed.
Every one knows that raw sul
phuric acid is quito cheap, and there
ls nothing In the way of using the
process and getting the maximum
results, and at practically no cost to
the farmer. In fact, T>r. Lipscomb
points out that tho original sulphuric
acid can be repeatedly used with a
very little loss, but that lt is neces
sary to maintain the thickness or
viscosity of the sulphuric acid so
that lt does not actually penetrate
the ports of tho cotton seed.
The process that has been outlined
will bring about such a saving In the
uso of seed that it will more than
pay for tho use of the sulphuric, acid.
