? Charleston New* ?nd Courier.)
During the past few days many
farmers tn this section have made
tests with various mixtures of cal
cium arsenate and molasses, and In
every Instance with which I am fa
miliar they are delighted with the
results. On our own plantations we
have experimented with several mix
tures, and aro now using a mixture
Of one-half gallon warm water, In
V/hieh is thoroughly mixed one pound
o' calcium arsenate, and aided to
cue-half gallon Of black molasse:-!.
\y<: have found a convenient way to
apply 1 "J use a ??nar* hettie, which
ls Ulled three-fourths full of tho
mixture. Cut a trench out of ono
?die of the cork, reverso the bottle
and apply to tho bud of tho cotton
by a shaking or plunging motion,
dropping two or three drops In the
bud of the plant. This method re
quires less of the mixturo per aero
the time. Wo find that none bf the
mixturo should be carried over night
?.H lt ls hard to mix tho next morn
ing. No moro should bo mixed than
can bo used during the day, and it
should be thoroughly stirred before
pouring Into tho bottles (or buck
ets If the mop ls used.)
Rudolph Gillespie applied tho mo
losses mixture to three different
Holds on the 12th, Kith and 14th.
This morning (the 10th) ho spent
more than an hour In these fields
searching for weevils. Ho found
no llvo weevils, and no recently

during the past week:

The r?sulte of thee? expert menu
seem to show that where a liquid
containing at least half molasses and
at least three-fourths of a pound of
calcium arsenate per gallon lg used,
100 per cent mortality occurs within
four days.
The fact that a good many of the
weevil? placed on the plants were
unaccounted for does not modify the
value of the experiment, as our ex
perimenters pbserved some weevils
to fly away immediately on being
placed on a plant.
The cotton surrounding these ex
periments had not been treated with
poison of any kind.
! have had two letters from M. M.
< rris, of Vaiire, Orangeburg coun
ty s. C., who last year applied, on
or about June 10 a mixture of one
arid one-half pounds of calcium ar
senate and one quart of hot water
mixed with one gallon of molasses,
lie stirred the water and arsenate
for thirty minutes before mixing
with the molasses, and applied with
a mop. Ho says one man or hoy can
apply to four acres per day. He
gathered 900 pounds of seed cotton
per acre and made only 200 to 4 00
pounds per acre on tho balance of
the farm. He does not consider this
test positively conclusive, owing to
tho fact that ho had no untreated
cotton in the field with treated cot
ton. He is confident that the poison
was responsible for his comparative
success, In a section which was al
most wiped out by the weevils last
year. The cost of the mixture, Mr.
Norris says, wa8 twenty to twenty
five cents per acre.
All tho farmers who have reported
on the UBO of the mixture in this
section agree that the cost is be
tween fifteen and twenty-five ceuts
for materials. Mr. Norris reports
that rnoBt of the farmers In his sec
tion are using tho molasses-calcium
arsenate mixturo this year, and so
far as he has heard they are pleased
with the results.
1 cannot he certain that hy the uso
of calcium arsenate-molasses treat
ment any farmer will male a crop of
cotton, and I can only be sure that
under th?; weather conditions we are
having hero since May 30, 'hat the j
vast majority of the weevils have
been killed, and that few weevils are
loft In tho treated fields, and few
punctured squares are appearing. The i
cost of tho application is so slight, j
and the results appear so manifest, j
that I feel that, every farmer can ill j
afford not to invest twenty cents peri
acre per application for this treat
ment, and apply lt several times at
Intervals of a week or ton days.
There ls not tho slightest question
that millions of weevils have al
ready been killed by this treatment
rlu ring the past ten days, and it
stands to reason that this has done
some good. David lt. Coker.

loughby spent the night here, and
started on his return trip to Atlanta
Friday morning. He was driving the
Atlanta Constitution's Pathflndlng
Car, a Packard Six, equipped with
two speedometers for the purpose of
making accurate measurements.
The driVe from Atlanta was mado
via Gainesville, Cornelia, Toccoa and

the distance from the Atlanta Con
stitution Building to the Confederate
monument on Main street lu Wal
halla to ho one hundred and thirty
four and two-tenths miles, while the
distance from Walhalla to 'Highlands
ls thirty-two and nine-tenths miles.
This trip was a revelation to Mr. I
Willoughby, who expressed himself
as being greatly impressed with our
roads and mountain scendry. He
gathered full data for the map and

OBy Beulah Powell,
Westminster, S. C., Route 5.)
Harold Cowan deeply loved 'Helen
Smyth, the girl that lived on the
next block, despite the fact that he
had never told Helen of his love for
her. Ho had gono about silently
worshiping the pretty blonde.
Helen loved Harold, but she kept
the secret hidden in her own bosom.
Tho only fault Helen found with
Harold was his love for strong drink.
She worried about his drinking, and
often plead with him to overcome
bis habit of drinking. Her pleadings
wore in vain. Many times Helen si
lently wept, many limes the unseen
tears coursed clown her pretty face.
How would Harold have felt hud
he known that by bis recklessness
his loved ono was suffering so much?
Would he have stopped and ponder
ed at the sleepless nights and tho
Pillow which was many times soaked
in tears?
One clay as Harold was preparing
to call on Helen he vowed to him
self that ho would certainly tell her
of his love for her and ask her to be
his wife. After arriving at the home,
true to his vow, he told her of his
love-told her how he loved her,
worshiped her and adored her. He
told her how he yearned for her and
of the sleepless nights ho had spent
thinking of her.
She, too, confessed hov love for
After Harold had poured out his
love to Helen he moved closer to
her and then, taking her small,white
hand in his, ho said: "Helen, surely
you must know how I worship you,
for I cannot find words with which
to express my love for you. You are
life bf my life. Will you be my wife?
Helen, don't say no! You cannot, you
must not, say no! If you say no I
shall surely die."
'Helen sadly shook her head, then
answered him, "Harold, I know how
you feel, fori love you Just as deeply
as you love me. Hut I cannot say
what you ask; 1 must say no. How
I bato to say those words! How it
breaks my heart! There is one thing
which, If not moved, will stand be
tween us forever to mar our happi
ness. I shall never bo happy without
you, and I could not be happy with
you under tho conditions."
Harold looked as if he had been
dealt a death blow.
"Helen! Helen! Don't (talk so
when you seo how you make me
suffer! What is tho one thing which
stand? between us? Tell mo, and If
it. is within my power to remove it,
I .shall certainly do so-anything to
please you."
"'Harold," said Helen, "it is up to
you to remove this barrier, because
you aro the only ono who bas the
power to do it. Surely you have al
ready guessed that strong drink is
the barrier between us. Remove that
and wo shall bo happy together; let
lt stay and you anti I shall know no
"Helen, dear, you aro too hard on
a poor fellow. 1 will give up part of
my drink, but cannot give up all.
Will that satisfy you? Will you bo
my wife?"
"No," Helen quickly answered, "I
will not unless you give up all drink
for my sake right now."
.He considered a momont, then ho
slowly answered, "I'll glvo up all

which would have made a king hap
py. He now placed a beautiful ring
on Helen's Auger, klBsed her cheek,
then took leave of his promised wife.
Helen was happier the next two
weeks than she had ever been in
her life. She was happy lu the sweet
thought that Harold and she would
never be separated, and very happy
that he had reformed.
How all her hopes were to be
blasted! for tho [two weeks had
scat eely passed until Harold called
on her again. What do you think?
Under the influence of drink! No
wonder Helen turned her head when
he offered to kiss her, and shrank
from his touch. She was too shocked
and heart-sick to s.ty anything ex
cept, "Harold, how could you?"
Slowly slie pulled fhe ring from
her linger and handed it to him with
the.so words: "Hore is your ring;
al is up between us. Never cou .
marry you, because you love strong,
di Ink bettor than you do me. Ho
and go at once! Never come back!"
Harold took the ring and went
stupidly out the door, hardly real
izing what had happened until tho
next day when he became fully con
scious, then ho was wild with worry.
Quickly dressing, ho went to Helen's
home. He did not wait for admit
tance, but pushed open the door and
walked In, Just as ho got In the
hall he met face to face with Helen.
"Harold, why are you here again?"
sho asked.
"Because," answered Harold, "it
was impossible to stay away any

just one more chance?"
"No; tho same thing would hap

must go," she said, waving her hand
toward the open door. Then she sat
down on a chair nearby.

tho door, then stopped and asked,
