CALCIUM ARSENATE, DI ST FORM

decently we had called to our at
tention a circular with referenco to
one of the many commercial boll wee
vil 'preventives' or 'sure killers,' and
we suggested that our friend submit
the mailor lo Ceo. lt. Briggs, Oconee
Farm Agent, who forwarded it to
Clemson College tor an opinion. The
fellowing, omitting name of party to
whom tho circular was sent and the
name of the preparation, is the reply
received front experts at Clemson:
Clemson College, .lune 13.
Wo havo a letter from .Mr. Briggs
with enclosure of circular on "-."
This material is made in-,
Ca., willi headquarters, as far as I
know, at-, Ga. The prepar
ation consists of calcium arsenate,
molasses and other ingredients,which
of course, may be any'.hing, and
therefore, constitutes one of the very
many sweetened poisons.
In going over the records and re
ports with great care last summer lt
was found, ns had been found before,
that vvhorovor profitable results were
secured, that Ihoy were secured by
tho proper use of calcium arsenate
dry dust, und not by the use of tho
liquid or sweetened poison.
Very truly yours,

ld lite Kditor of tho News and Cou
As boll weevils aro now reported
in grenier or Uss quantities on near
ly ovory farm in tito State, and as the
went lier thus far lias been Ideal for
their propagation, it looks as if there
is small chance of producing a fail
crop of cotton unless some cheap and
effective method of checking them is
found and put into effect Immedi
I havo heretofore recommended
that the farmers experiment with a
mixture of calcium arsenate and mo
lasses, having both experienced and
bearii of good results from this treat
ment, and knowing that the expense
of thc use of this mixture is so small
thal failure to secure results would
not mean a very heavy loss.
During i lie past few days I lia ve
become thoroughly convinced that
this treatment is extremely effective.
On Friday, the Oth instant, on our
pedigreed seed farm, eleven live act
ive weevils were placed on a few
Stalks of cotton upon which a few
drops of tho molasses mixture had
been-placed. A few hours later our
experimenters found ei?ht doad wee
vils and no live ones on those stalks.
On May ?10 J. NV. Good son treated
half of a Hold with this mixture, and
on .lune ;". he carefully examined this
field and found hundreds of weevils
on tho untreated cotton and very few
on Ibo treated cotton. Ile ls abso
lutely convinced of tho great value
of this treatment, as are Randolph
Ciilespio, George Nowson and Coorge
W. Throatt, of this section; A. H.
Rogors, Of Society Hill, and R. Loo
Pass, of banes, all of whom have
made tests with thia mixture. In
fact, l know of no tesl thal has hoon
made which failed to result in kill
ing a high por cent of the weevils on
1 he treated cotton.
1 believe thal if every farmer will
make an application of tho calcium
;i,senate-molasses mixture this week
ho will make a great deal more col
ton than otherwise. Weevils aro al
ready puncturing thc forms on tlc
old cotton, and these should be care
fully picked np. Additional applica
tions of tile molasses mixture should
be applied at'least once per week for
tho next four weeks, and oftonor if
washed off by rain.
Tako two pounds of calcium arson
hte, mix thoroughly with one-half
gallon of warm water and then one
gallon of m?fiasses (the cheapest
black-strap ls best), applying to
the cotton with a mop. A drop or
two in tho bud of each plant ls suf
ficient. A very small quantity ap
pears to bo as effective as a large
quantity. Tko malu thing is to got
it on at once, and get It properly
distributed. After tho cotton is two
or threo feet tall a mixturo of two
and one-half gallons of molasses,
seven and one-half gallons of water
ano ten pounds of arsenate may ho
applied with a spray pump. Wo got
good results with this mixture last
year, using an orchard spray with
ilvo nozzles, easily cohering forty
acres per day.
.For some reason the extension bu
reau is not recommending the use of
the calcium arsenate-molasses mix
turo in fighting tho weevil, although
a circular Issued by di. R. Coad, of
the Tallulah Laboratory, dated July
6th, 1921, shows this method to be
a most effective means of early sea
son control under certain conditions,
and although the dusting method
recommended by them produced tho
mopt disastrous results In some in
stances In this section last year. lu
view of the abbundant? evidence of
the effectiveness of tho calcium ar
senate-molasses treatment, and es
pecially In view of tho fact that Its
uso only Involves an expenditure o*
ten cents to twenty couts per acre
for materials per application, and
eau he mixed and applied by any ten
ant farmer, I cannot understand their
attitude, which is still moro difficult
for mo to understand because the
dusting mc'.hod recommended by
tbein involves the cost of several dol
lars per acre for poison, an expen
sive machine and night work-a com
bination which is. under present con
ditions, entirely out of tho reach of
the average tenant farmer and of
many land owners.
With the evidence at hand 1 think
it probable that if the calcium arsen
ate molasses treatment is applied to
every acre of cotton In the State four
times during the next month it may
result in an increase of at least a
quarter million bales to the crop of
our State this year.

Hard to Reconcile.
The widely divergent opinions set
forth by i ho authorities of Clemson 1
College and by .Mr. Coker, the latter
recognized as one of ibo foremost
and mo.st intelligent farmers of tho
South, tho former embodying tho
best thought of the agricultural de
partment, backed by long experimen
tation along the line of weevil con-j ,
trol, aro hard to reconcile. Wo do
not believe that 1). R. Coker would ;
give out anything that would be In-1,
jurions lo thc farmers of our State.!,
We are ready to go farther than that
in the premises: We know that he ,
would not recommend anything that ;
would possibly give injurious results, j
He has no interests whatever in the (
premises to bo advanced by his rec- ?
ommending tho method he has tried |
out. Ho has nothing to sell; there j
is no revenue to be derived by him
oven though every farmr In South ,
Carolina might adopt his method. He
advises In the light of his experi
ments and in the face of the results
obtained. His article is, it seems to
us. worthy of consideration. Rut we
would advise a close co-operation
with Mr, Briggs in tho matter. Con
ditions of tho crop and the weather
make all the difference in the world.
Th conditions under which Mr. Co
ker, in the lower part of tho State,
has found his method so admirable,
might be altogether different from
Conditions in our (Oconee) county

Then, too, we feel sure that the
Clemson attitude in regard to tho
commercial mixtures is to safeguard
tho farmer against being bunco d by
some unscrupulous ones who woifld
put over anything, regardless of its
merit, or lack of merit, for tho sake
of selling to the cotton-grower, now
in ibo panicky state of grasping at
a straw in tho hope of saving him
self from being "drowned in the boll
weevil deluge." Wo havo the highest
confidence In the Clemson experts;
we have every confidence in David R.
Wo advise close co-operation with
County Agent Geo. R. Briggs in the
matter. He has tho backing and tho
advantage of first-hand Information
from experts at Clemson, and can |
be depended upon to givo tho best
advice, considering our local soil and
crop eonditiions, as well as having
the advantage of being "on the spot"

buy sonic "unknown quantity" put
up under some attractivo and mean

tho liquid form, get your materials,
as Mr. Coker suggests, and do tho

foctly sure that the manufacturers of
these mixtures, if they were all that
is claimed for them, would not be

"Health is the greatest thing in the
