TO FIGHT BOIili WEEVIL Columbia, J&u. 6.?A plan for combatting the Poll weevil which, 'he says, has been successfully used In, other sections of the belt, was outlined by R. M. Mixson, president of the South Carolina Cotton association tost night, Mr. Mixso* said that he had traveled extensively In tho boll weevil section this year and that he had interviewed the farmers who' had met the situation the most successfully. His statements presents the ,plan used by most of them. ' xne doii Aveevu is in our .miast, and in. the language of a distinguished gentleman, that is *what is the matter with our midst.' "This is a very serious mfetter and calls for considerable thought and a lot of work: "We can't give utf cotton planting eternally. Providence has given the South the soil, the sunshine and rainfall necessary to growing and producing cotton. As far-as we can do so profitably, we ought to produce cotton. The world is depeudent on the staple for clothing. And the South u better adapted to the production of cotton than any other section of the world. "But there is' no moral or legal reason why the South should grow I cotton at a loss, either from the rav- ( ages of insect pest or on acount of inadequate prices. The riutn who, in the face of past experience and the present invasion of the boll weevil will increase his cotton acreage is a fit subject for the lunatic asylum. "This is a serious situation, one affecting the financial interest of the state, but not one to get panicy over. J^et's preserve our wits. Dont go off at a tangent. Liet's look the matter squarely in the face, and with cool deliberation based upon the best information that we can get concerning] the situation, meet it squarely and with determination. The situation can bo met, it has been met and so far o- the interests of the farmers are concerned, has been in a large meas ~ ' _ _ rjl A ( W6.1" * * oi a ca ?the wage hardwood r a'nd hickorj 'I \ These are many paten old standard Not the lowes the end the ch v ' A-'' " . ;vP S.

I in vestlgatcd the best 'posted planters ii these states and discussed the bea method of combatting the boll'weevil My views are based upon the best in formation 1 could get from the bca farmers in the states mentioned. "First: Plant not over ten acres i: cotton to the plow. Don't plant an bottoms in ctton. Bottoms are th home of the weevils and subject t greater damage by them. Plant you cotton on uplands. "Second: Prepare your lands thoi oughly by a thorough breaking u early. Harrow the fields over at lea* once before bedding for cotton. "Third: Put your rows three and half to four feet apart. Bed by Apr 1. "Fourth: Put from 600 to 80 pounds of a high grade fertilizer t the acre, a 10-4-4 preferred. Th! must 'be distributed as you bed tli land. "Fifth: If you have any soda to uf apply it on top of the bed just aftc the cotton ocmes up. "Sik: Before planting' harrow yot beds so as to got the soils in first cla* condition for the germination of th seed. . * "Seventh.

I am convinced that r it will pay. and that handsomely, to continue to pick up and burn squarofi as long as your cotton continues to grow and fruit. P ?
