June 30.-Secretary Wilson and Dr. B. F. Galloway, the directory of the bureau of plant in dustry, yesterday received the first advices from Dr. 0. F. Cook, the de partment's traveling agent, since the latter started from Guatemala with the newly discovered ants intended to fight the boll weevils in the co.tton districts. Dr. Cook cables from Puerto Cor tez. Mex.. that he will arrive at New Orleans on July 4 with 89 colonies of these ants. He will immediately pro ceed to the Texas cotton districts to begin the campaign against the weevils. The experimental coloniza tion of these ants probably will be in stituted first at Victoria. Tex The location of the colonies hinges large ly on soil questions, the shale-like soil being most conducive to the success of the experiments. A letter received by the department today from Dr. Cook says that the colonies should be located in districts afford ing a loose and moist sub-soil but well drained. He says the ants will have to be kept under careful obser vation for a considerable period and must be protected from birds or other dangers until the colonies have had time to increase materially. The ants come from the depart ment of Alta Vera Paz.' Guatemala. Dr. Cook writes from Salama and says that contrary to many reports there is no field culture of cotton there. SSpeckilation.
