Tho extent to which the crops cf

by C. Arthur Williams In the Success
"Ttie proceeds from the wheat crop, j
tho average annual farm valuo of j
which may bo roughly put at $100,
000,000, have In more than one year
been cut down as much as 60 per cent
as a result of the cninoh bug and the
hessian Hy. Klug cotton alone was
damaged to the extent of nearly $50,
000,000 by the so -called Mexican boll
weevil in tiro siegle state of Texas in
1903, according toa carefully com

duced aB much as 25 por c;nt in many
Instances through thc operations of
thc codling motil and other Insects.
