As he did not seem to have anything

"No no; bo quiet!" ho said; and
after a long pause ho turned and
walked back a few yards; then with
his back to the scene ho paid:
"Now seo If I have learned It" and
then be gave a description of tho

SEEKING TO CONTROL BOLL WEEVIL PEST
1 " r n
tSifiaav
FUld of Early
Thcro Is no possibility of entirely
eliminating tho Mexican cotton boll
weevil. Various plans have been of-
fered i'.' Ml ot them have been found
far from practical. Even the moat
pronuslng suggestion that of plant-
ing lo cotton for an entlro year-
would hot prove effective ns has been
shown by Dr. W. D. Hunter of tho
United States bureau of entomology;
for tho reasons among others thnt
there Is always Bomo volunteer cotton
upon which tho weevils might feed
nnd somo of them would mnnago to
get through tho season by feeding on
other plants.
With Just a few of them living
through tho season and a slnglo fe-
male producing as many as 12500000
progeny In a slnglo year It Is appa
rent that they would soon bo back
again as busy as ever. Tho only prac-
tical plan then Is to seek to control
the pest and keep It down by every
possible means. This Is the plan that
has been adopted by tho United States
bureau of entomology and by tho va-
rious states which must deal directly
with tho problem.
Tho Georgia etato board of ento
mology under the direction of Dr. E.
Leo Worsham has been at work for
years preparing the Georgia cotton
growers against the coming ot tho
boll weevil and based upon the work
which has been done Doctor Hunter
has stated that Georgia Is further ad-
vanced In the matter of protective
measures than any other atate which
has been attacked by the weevil.
In bis bulletin Secretary Worsham
haB pointed out tho various well-
known methods of control. Climate
as he shows has a very direct effect
upon the abundance of the weevil.
Hot dry weather during tho summer
months may kill hundreds of tho lar-
vae; drought may prevent the forma-
tion ot squares and thus give the wee-
vils no place to deposit their eggs.
Excessive cold weather In winter will
kill thousands of them In winter
quarters. Many of them are drowned
also by excessive ralna or overflows
nnd sudden cold snaps destroy them
in large numbers.
Dlrds aro one of tho most Impor
tant natural enemies of the boll wee
vil. There are S3 species which feed
on the adult bug. Among tho most
Important birds attacking them aro
blackbirds meadow larks sparrows
wrens and titmice.
While the foregoing agencies assist
materially In preventing the multipli-
cation ot the weevil they cannot bo
largely depended upon. Known meth-
ods of control must be used by tho
farmer. Poisons are absolutely Inef-
fective becauso tho weevil Is so thor-
oughly protected by living through-
out the most of Its life Inside the cot
ton buds. Cultural methods aro the
only really effective ones. Among tho
most Important methods recommend-
ed In Doctor Worsham's bulletin aro
destroying dead stalks In tho fall;
clean cultivation crop rotation early
planting fertilizing and working
hand-picking ot fallen squares the
planting of early varieties and varie-
ties which do not form top crop In
the late fall which show a tendency to
proliferate which tend to retain the
Infested squares Instead of shedding
them and those which have n hairy
growth on tho stems which impedes
tno progress 01 me weevil.
notation of crops Is not only of ben-
efit to the soil but may result In
placing tho new cotton crop at a point
a considerable distance from where
the weevils hibernate. Thus weakened
by winter many of them will dle'be-
foro reaching the cotton and it will
have a better opportunity to reach
Ita growth beforo being attacked. It
a rapid early growth can be secured
by early planting the cotton will have
made considerable progress before the
weevils get In motion. The stronger
fasts f growth a planter can get early
in tp spring the more be can hope
to is ike. The planting should come
at .h 1 earliest possible rate after the
grout. I Is right. Fertilising and work-
ing tnaan quick strong growth. They
often Btean tha difference between sue-
tesa and failure. Hand-picking of fall-
en squares wblck should be burned
geta rid of asaay ef vtke parasites.
Alabama Georgia and oatk Caro-
lina Doctor Worsbaiu points oat have
a more serious problass than tba otbar
states because early varieties of cot-
tea wblcb are less eabjeet to attack

known as black root or wilt. Concern-
ing this subject. Doctor Worsham
says:
"Dlack root or wilt In some sections
of tho South Is moro serious than the
boll weevil. It 1b a fungous disease in
tho soil and haa occurred in 81 Geor-
gia counties tt la worse In the low
sandy soils. The state for several
years has mado appropriations to the
department of entomology for fighting
this disease and splendid results have
been obtained.
'Tho dlseaso can bo controlled by
proper rotation and the growing ol
resistant varieties developed by the
department of cnto.nology and United
Statos bureau of plant Industry. As
this dlseaso Is very serious in the
southwestern part ot the state our ef'
forts havo been concentrated on that
section bo qb to get It under control
boforo the weevil becomes a problem.
".Many farmors In south Georgia arc
growing tho resistant varieties; they
not only resist black root but aro pro-
lific. They will produco from one tc
two bales per aero whero ordinary cot-
ton cannot be grown. Millions of dol
lnrs havo been saved to the state
through this work.
"The department has propagated va
rletles of cotton that arc wilt resist-
ant and largo quantities of seed have
been distributed throughout the south
western part of tho state to aid farm
era In the eradication of wilt. Thlt
work Is being continued at the proaent
time and overy farmer should eradl
cate disease from his farm before the
boll weevil appears. Briefly it is con-
trolled by rotation with Iton or Drab-
ham peas velvet beans corn or grain
crops and growing of wilt resistant
varieties.
"When the boll weevil occurs these
two problems must be fought togeth
er. If wilt occurs In your sol) you
must plant an early maturing vnrlcty
that Is wilt resistant on such affected
areas.
"In many places the weevil has pro-
duced a condition akin to a panic be-
causo of demoralization of labor and
business generally Dut there Is 11 c
reason for such conditions In Georgia
If the growers will take advantage ol
tho experience ot others.
"Tho farmers In Infested nreas
havo demonstrated that cotton can be
grown successfully under boll weevil
conditions. It will bo at least two of
three years before the weevil coven
enough territory In Georgia to do a
great deal ot damage and still longet
before tho Carolines are attacked. II
tho farmers begin now they can pre-
vent to a large degree the usual de-
moralization and depreciation of land
values.
"I have mado a number of trips to
boll wcovll territory have Investigate
ed tho problem and mado a study of 11
from tho standpoint of what It will
mean to Georgia. A recent trip to
Louisiana and Mississippi convinced
mo more thoroughly than ever that
thore Is no necessity for nnyono to bo-
come discouraged over tho situation
if ho Is willing to fight. Tho man
who doubts that tt can thrive In out
climate and doubts thnt It could evci
do any damage Is tho man who will
Btiffnr most. Tho man thnt makes ur
his mind to llvo nt homo Is thu man
who will suffer least under woovll con
dltlonB. Diversification nnd reduction
in ncrcago aro tho words.
"The boll weevil Is a most serious
pest but If cotton growers and busi-
ness men will tako hold of thn situa-
tion and tako advantago of thn expe-
rience ot those who havo suffered and
recovered there will bo no noccsslty
for alarm. To successfully cono with
the weevil wo must grow moro live
stock and more foodstuffs not so
much to competo with other soctloni
in these articles but to grow what we
need for borne consumption. Tho boll
weevil will undoubtedly revolutionize
our agriculture. We will have to do
better farming than we have ever dono
before and have to give the farm more
active personal supervision. Tho
fanner must make use of tho Infor-
mation obtained from the study ot dif-
ferent types of soils kinds of fertili-
sers for different crops cultural meth-
ods live stock suited for different
sections market situation etc.
"The faraer who ta willing to profit
by the experience of other men will
continue to grow cotton successfully
but be must live at home roust make
