Th deoartment of agriculture has an nounced that an ant has been found ln Gautemala that is an effective enemy to the boll weevll. It will Immediately be lntroduced lnto the cotton states. The greatest slgnlflcance ls attached to the dlscovery. which was made by C. F. Cook, the botanlst ln charge of troplcal agricultural lnvestlgation of the bureau of plant lndustry. Cabled lnstructlons have been sent to hlm to report Imme diately to the department what asslstance he needs ln the way of men and money. During a trip ln Central Amerlca last year Mr. Cook dlscovered a cotton gTOwn by Indians which gave evldence of be Ing lmmune from the attacks of the boll weevll, and on orders from the depart ment he later began an lnvestlgation ln certain points ln Gautemala and Mexico. Mr. Cook's investlgations have been ln more or less accesslble reglons ln the province of Alta. Vera Paz, Gautemala. The weevils are present there, but the In vestlgations show that they are unques tlonably kept ln check by the presence of an actlve enemy ln the shape of a large reddish-brown ant, which ls at tracted to the cotton by the food which it secures from sets of Horal nectarles. Mr. Cook's Investlgations show that these ants spread themselves over flelds of cot ton four or flve to a plant and that they are constantly engaged ln the destruc tlon of the boll weevll. Mr. Cook reports that the adrolt and buslness-llke way ln which the weevll ls dlsposed of seems to prove beyond questlon that the ant Is, by structure and Instlnct, especlally equtpped for the work of destructlon. 1.00 30 16 20 025 23 6 14022 SS Potatoes Potatoes (peck) " Cheese ," Butter (pound) Eggs Sugar (reflned) Sugar (Maple) Salt.
