I Combating the Black Weevil The black weevil is the wo st enemy of corn from the time it bcgins to mature in the field until it is disposed of by fee:ling or sell ing on the market. This insect lives during the winter months in crevices in the cribs, barns and other adjacent buildings. Very few of then will spend the winter in the field. The eggs are deposited in the bui ildings as soon as the weather becomes warm in the spring. The first generation emerages some time in May. Corn fields located near the farm buildings are the first to become infested, as large numbers of adult weevil emigrate during the warm days of the spring and summer. Breeding begins in the fields usually when the ears are fit for Sroasting. If the field is near wood Sland the number moving into it m may be as large as from hbuildings >f Early corn always fares worse that which matures late. It may be in feasible to plant some early corn :n for the weevils to feed upon, leav ie ing the other almost free. The e I tight shuck is essential and can be i- secured by field selection. ý. Carbon bisulphide is the mate rial to use in combating the weevil. The gas formed is heavier than air, hence it will go to every part of the corn, The crib must be air , tight when it is used, to secure the . best results. The amount to use p is from twenty to twenty-five pounds per 1000 cubic feet of space, whether the crib is filled with corn or not. Warm weather is the best I time to use it as the weevil becomes inactive when the temperatute is a# low as 60 degrees.-.A.. P, der, Louisiana 'State UM 'vsity.

DeMille's frmous Broadway hit of the same name now being offered by Jesse L. Lasky is associatiou with David Belsaeo, might truly be described as a Civil War drama of the North and the South. Probably no other was drama ever so conscientiously tried to show both sides of the straggle. It is more than neutral. It positively takes both sides of the question, showing the sinceri. ty of conviction both on the part of the Northern soldiers and their gallant Southern adversaries. The great moral of the story is that political differences should never end in personal enmities. The Southern General who fights most heroically for the Lost Cause has yet such a broad view of life that he urges his daughter to follow the dictates of her heart and marry the Northern man, now a Lieute nant. to whom she was engaged in the days "befo' the war" AMMEN'S TOILET POWDER is growing so much in popularity that a prominent physician bought at a time one grose (144 cans) for his own family use.
