Itost Importiant Single Step In Any
Fight Against Boll Weevil.
Clemson College, Oct. 3.-The early
fall destruction of cotton stalks is
Lhe most important single step in any
right against the cotton boll weevil.
So says Prof. A.'F. Conradi, entomnolo
gist, who adds that it has been shown
time and again in practice and by ex
periments that the most favorable
conditions for the boll weevil to pass
the winter successfully are found in
those 'fields in which the cotton stalks,
together with grass, weeds, fallen
leaves and other refuse are left un
disturbed until nearly time to plant
the following season. On such fields
the greatest number of weevils will
survive, and every farmer should ask
himself the question, "Will I permit
my farm to be a winter hotel for the
In other words, will the farmer
choose to destroy the weevil this faii
or have the weevil destroy his cotton
next season? The earlier the stalks
are destroyed the fewer wevils will
survive the winter. In infested fields
it is common to find weevils at the
rate of five thousand to twenty-five
thousand per acre at the time of first
frost. It is a well known fact that the
tweevils developing late in the fall
are the ones most likely to survive
the winter, as they are not worn out
by long fli-ghts and the rearing of the
young as are the older weevils. For
this reason, development of weevils In
late fall must -be prevented as the first
step in making the next cotton crop.
Therefore, twe should start now a

are capable.

In order to encourage the growth of wheat, which
we believe is necessary in the fight against the boll

To further stimulate interest in wheat growing we
offer a cash prize of $25.00 to the Laurens county
farmer growing the most wheat on one acre of ground
this season.
It is not necessary to buy the wheat from us to en
