THE WOODMEN PICNIC.
This week considerable space is
given to defense of the Herman
ville Woodmen and pavilion trus
tees relative to the admission fee
charged to the political speaking
on the 4th. The Reveille had
made no criticism, merely stating
what others had said. However,
the paper did state that this was
the first time an admission bad
been charged to a "big" gathering.
If we were mistaken in this, we
accept the correction.
Since it has been thoroughly es
tablished that the Woodmen wefë
paying for the pavilion and
grounds, there can certainly be no
just'criticism of them; they had a
perfect right to charge. And at
the same time the trustees are to
be commended for their effort to
pay off the debt and keep the
building and grounds in proper
condition. However, it might be
suggested that, in order to prevent
future criticism, it might be well
to rent the ground privileges with
out including the building, so that
no admission fee could hereafter
be charged.
THE CONTEST.
Interest Growing ; Many
New Contestants
Entering.

The Pope Drug Company piano
•ontest is creating a wonderful
amount of interest, and the list of

new entries. Nos. 4, 6 and 14 are
working like beavers, and their

several others who are not very far
behind, and a good week's work
on their part might put them in
lead.
Don't forget that a. new sub
scriber to the Reveille or an ad
vance renewal counts 3000 votes.
Subscriptions in arrears count 100
votes. Job printing counts too
totes on every dollar. The new

Land, Stock and Crops.
One of the foremost agricultur
ists of Adams county writes on the
agricultural evolution now taking
place, thus: "This county will
make more cotton to the acre
three years from now, than they
made before the weevil came, but
we will never have so many acres
in cotton. The good Lord seems
to have forced us to do what we
should have been doing all the
time.
I made last year on Fair Oaks
ii
I
17 bales of cotton on 200 acres,
will make this year 20 bales on
Believe I am safe for
100 acres,
that much and may make more.
You see that is *4 crop, as our
lands do not average over one-half
bale to the acre without weevil.
Wish you could come down and
see the difference in my crop this
year from what you saw last year.
Of course I am hurt yet, but I am
getting better and expect to con
tinue to do so each year. My corn
at 50 cents a bushel will more than
pay all my crop expenses this year,
then I have some cattle and hogs,
enough to make all my meat for
my family. So I have sized up the
situation this way: That it is up
to me to raise enough meat and
corn to feed my family, my tenants
and my mules, and I can raise a
few bales of cotton with each ten

ant.
acres to the mule and I believe the
five acres can be made to produce
five bales of cotton, not next year
nor the year after, but it will be
done. Tbe'weevil may always be
with us, and I hope he will in a
small degree, just to keep us from
going back to all cotton.
"It is questionable in my mind
if it is a good thing to burn your
stalks in the tall. Tell you why I
say this: Take the history of the
weevil in his eastward march from
Brownsville, Texas, for the last 15
years. He reaches the crisis about
the third year, and while he con
tinues to stay with you he begins
to get less disastrous after the third
year. So, unquestionably there is
a parasite that follows about four
years behind him, and when you
burn the stalk you also destroy the
parasite. I burned all my stalks
last November. I hkd more weev
ils to contend with this year than
others had who did not burn their
stalks. On my 100 acres of cotton
I killed about 20,000 weevils this
year, so you see I have done more
work than my neighbors to make
my cotton good as theirs. I may
have little better than the average.
Now in Concordia and Tensas par
ishes, where they had the weevil
one year before us, they will make
two-thirds crop. See, it's getting
better.
This practical farmer makes a
mistake when he states that burn

ing the stalks destroys the para 1

travel at the rate of ten miles a
year, whereas the weevil travels 50
to 80 miles a year. Therefore,
burning the stalks is the thing be
fore frost. For that reason the
parasites never accompany
weevil in their migration and first
invasion of new territory,

D. Hunter or the laboratory of '

Texas, to ship him by express one
bushel of punctured squares with
parasites to distribute in heavily
infected field to see if that would

would not damage bis cotton crop

results.
