Perhapii it ììì tmiortunat« that I am related tf> the old lady who prayed for the mountain to be mwvt'd. if l had a crop of cotton I would make an effort to «ave it by spraying with poîî^w with the hope of killing all innecls wlïîoh destroy the cotton, yet that hope or laith would be weak when applied " to the destruction of bttll weevil whe;« the farms and woods are fui i of them. I ne v<.*r w^eut to coUejie, but Î bcUiive that I have^ sense enough to knowth at you may nave a crop by pickinjif up the form.s when you have them aii Prof. Maily «ays they are in Fayette county, where one man reported thatkeifauifht in a foot stretch, and {when a man catches 750 on a iiilf acre it destroys tny faith iti the pickin^qiroceiiii.
