I will write you ., small article on
the hull weevil.
Our honorable prcsidem and states
men ami other Lading men of the
country are advocating for the farm
er to cultivate more ground, or their
waste land, which - good xdvics in
one sense of th, ftrord Hut 'f the
farmers would protect what they
plant from the weevil it would
amount to more than the extra
ground or waste land that they Would
plant. I would suggest to the farm
er to catch the moth miller that lays
the weevil egg, If 'he farmer would
take a luh and p.: one or two buck
eta of water in it and put a float
or drive a stake .;, slanting so the
top of the stake wo. ild I ver tile

Would hang over the center of the
water, lie could stay it with wire to
keep it from sw nging to and fro, he

he will catch in on.- night. Last year
my nrother plain i t VO tuhs in Ins

one nuart to a half gallon of moth, I
milleis every night. This :. one way
I to reduce the cost of living. A lamp
and u pun of water will put an end
o weevils in dried fruits. 1 would
like fur some farmer to try this plan
