A South Carolina farmer had a large number
of hogs which were ready to kill. The weather
Was so warm that killing was out of tho question.
He went to his telephone, called a dealer in
Columbia over Long Distance and sold his hogs
at a good price. He then called tho local freight
office and arranged for shipment.
The telephone is now a necessity on the farm.

Second—The use of VELDOP applied In liquid
form with a powerful vaporizing spray to the young
cotton plant has In all these instances disposed of
the hibernated weevil, and thus substantiated the
claim of The VELDOP Company that In this manner
the development of the weevil could be retarded un
til a good bottom and middle crop of cotton is ma
tured.
It is well known that the use of Insecticides for
the purpose of combating the cotton boll
hitherto met with little or no success, because when
such poisons were powerful enough to kill the
weevil, they also scorched or seriously damaged the
cotton plants,
Mr. Ira F. Peck, a scientist and metallurgist
of note of Providence, R. I., some two years ago de
vised a formula that was entirely different from and
far superior to any insecticide heretofore Invented.
Mr. Peck experimented with ail the most delicate
plants, shrubs, vegetables and trees that were beset
by Insects, *nd discovered that in no case did his
formula damage plant life in the least, while its
effect on Insect life was all that could be desired In
an insecticide.
Mr. Peck has associated with him fer the man
ufactui. and sale of his Insecticide, registered under
the trade name of "VELDOP" (patented Dec. t, 1914),
tho following gentlemen:
Mr. W. R. Humphrey, of Humphrey & Co., cotton
merchants, Greenwood, Miss.
Messrs. Harry Lesser and Alvin D. Goldman, of
th§ Leaser Goldman Cotton Co., St. Louis, Mo.
Messrs. E. R. Trowbridge and H. O. Potter, of
the well-known firm of cotton merchants, D. Rem
ington & Son, Providence, R. I.
Mr. Peck conducted experiments from May 15 to
Aug. 15, 1914,
A. H. Gillespie of Vidalla, La., G
and Charles H. Fitzpatrick of Natchez, Miss. These
experiments have proven the following facts:
First—The application of VELDOP has In no
oase Injured the young and tender cotton plant, but
on the other hand has promoted Its growth through
having protected It fro
that prey on the small plant.
!viI has
Third—Late applications of VELDOP after the
August flight of the weevil into the experimental
fields has shown that the majority of the partly
grown bolls of the top crop have been protected from
Inaction by the weevil, and nave thus fully matured
and opened.
In
ubst^ntiatlon of the above claims we

has proved effective for use
in destroying the army worm, as It wlll^not be

VELDOP is now offered by The Veldop Company
through the trade at the surprisingly low cost of
9c per pound at retail. It comes In paste form, In
convenient sized metal cans containing about 100
pounds. For use It is diluted by dissolving one pound
of VELDOP in ten gallons of water, and should be
