A REUNITED CHURCH
For over a half century there
has existed a breach between the
Methodists of the South and the
North. The division came on account
of some of the Methodists of the
South being slave owners. This
difference could not be settled in
those days and resulted in a divi
sion oi the church which has remain
ed divided, one branch known as the
Methodist Church South and the
Methodist church North. However,
it appears now that ail difference
will soon be settled and a reunited
church will be the result.
At a meeting oi the general con
ference of the Northern Metnodist
Church in Springfield, Mass., last
week, it was decide by an over
whelming vote to reunite with the
Methodist Church South. The matter
has been referred to the College
of Bishops of the Southern Church
who will meet on May 20 to take
under advisement the adoption of
of the proposal made by the confer
ence of the Northern Methodist
Church. It may be however, that
the whole matter will be referred
to a conference of the members of
the Southern Methodist Church,
but in any event it is belived that
the proposal will be accepted and
before another year the two church
es wifi be united and the church
hereafter will be known as theMeth.
odist Church of America.No North,
no South, but a united church work
ing hpnd in hand for the great goal,
that of saving of souls for a better
world than this.
It is hoped that the agreement
may be reached and that matters of
difference may be Wiped out for all
time to corne. Athena, Banner-

are over 600 miles of road under

present system of paying as we go,
the State of Georgia is probably
making as much progress as could be
The revenue coming into the state
from tax on gasoline and license tax
for cars is very heavy and soon as
the amount borrowed on State road

The United States Government Puts
Out Films Showing How to Fight
the Pest With Poison.
By Keeton Arnett
New Orleans, La., May 21. —Stim-
ulation of buying in the calcium ar
senate market has been effected by
the use of motion pictures in the in
struction of methods of controlling
the boll weevil, according to reports
from every section of the south where
the films are used, to the National
801 l Weevil Control Association.
Many farmers who have bean du
bious as to the results to be obtained
by the poison, have been converted, it
is said, and have placed their orders
for a season’s supply.
A large number of banks, chambers
of commerce and other business inter
ests are co-operating with the cnotrol
association in showing the films,
“How to Poison 801 l Weevils” and
“Goodbye 801 l Weevil,” which are
furnished by the United States de
partment of agriculture, and at pres
ent there are five sets of the films be
ing used throughout the cotton belt.
With the time already at hand in
some sections of the belt and near at
hand in others when the cotton plants

begin to appear and the boll weevil
begins its ravages, the farmers turn
their attention to the best way to keep
the infestation to a minimum.
It is believed that a majority of
the planters have established for
themselves the fact that a low rate
of weevil emergence this spring gives
them a crop chance that was not en
joyed last year and have determined
to take advantage of it by poisoning
either with calcium arsenate in dust
form or with the calcium arsenate-mo
lasses mixture when there are as
many as twenty weevils to the acre.
Some farmers have used poison in
other years, but due to the improper
use or application have not obtained
the best results, while others have
never used it and both classes ap
parently are eager to see the films
which demonstrate clearly the correct
way of using calcium arsenate and
stress the slogan, “Do It Right or
Not at AH.” y
Virtually the only way to determine
the degree of infestation in young
cotton is by thorough examination of
every plant in a given number of
rows in a field. It is pointed out by
experts that while it is necessary for
the farmer to get down on his hands
and knees to make a proper examina
tion of the plants it is not necessary
to examine every plant in every field
but rather to examine a few rows in
different parts of the field, calculating
the infestitation on the basis that the
weevils are uniformly distributed.
If calcium arsenate is not used at
this s v. pc it is recommended that an
application be made to the tips of the
plants of a home mixture containix.g
one pound of calcium arsenate, one
gallon of molasses and one gallon of
water. The mixture should be applied
uy sprinkling a few drops on each
plant *Vom a home mad,, inop within
