" Human parasl?js*^^ low in the wake of the boll weevil' in all newly invaded territory, where tho gullible farmer ls easily per suaded to part with some hard-earn ed cash for a patent brush, knocker, liquid spray or what not, which rem edy, the enterprising agent assures him, will speedily rid his Cami of weevils. IA deaf ear should he turned to all such spielers. If tho man who is sell ing such wares ls in earnest he will turn thc machine or poison over to government authorities or to Clem son College, whore tho device will be tested, nnd then, IE IT WOItKS, the fact will be broadcasted over tho land and his sales will be enormous. So far the government, has tested, year hy year, many devices and poi sons on the experimental farms in Louisiana. Every device is given a thorough trial, and so far hundreds ol' remedies have been tried out without success. THE ONLY PARTIAL CONTROL REMEDY which lins given even fair success is calcium arsenate poison, applied with (lie proper sort of gun or duster, IN DUST FORM, undor proper conditions. None of tho liq uid sprays, including tho "patent" sprays which are supposed to have certain sticking or other qualities, are recommended, for the govern ment authorities maintain that these 'HAVE NOT shown results where tried. It seems foolish for farmers to waste money on useless dovices which have been tried by men in the government service, who aro,paid to try all manner of things in efforts to control the boll weevil. Experimental Poisoning. A few farmers scattered over the county will . selected by the County Agent to curry on experiments with weovil control measures. Several of these have already been solee. . Only a few acres of the best land, where 'rn yield is ordinarily over a bale pei' acre, will be selected. Fields where all other methods lia ve been practiced, such as fall cleaning up, early and good prepara tion, good seed, proper fertilization, a good, thick stand secured early, etc., are tho fields most likely to beat the weovil. Only a few sucV experiments can he looked after closely because of tho fact that each will require visits at practically Hie same time. It is expected that various sorts of dusting machines will be used in theso experiments, depending on tho kind the farmer is willing to buy or Is most likoly to give results. Every ono attempting such experi ments, however, ls warnod that suc cess ls dependont on sovoral things, such as weather conditions, starting at the proper timo, applying nt pro rer intervals, and in tho right man ner.
