RSf, natural, SJo:*, alloway, chief of the bureau o f plant Industry o f the de­ partment tst agriculture; aft^r -consul­ tation with a number of special agents engaged I n working out the'cotton boll weevil problem has authorized the course bis bureau will pursue I n this work daring the coming year, says the- Waahington correspondent o f the New York Post At the last session of congress $100,- 000 was appropriated for the purpose of meeting the emergency caused by the invasion and spread of the boll weevil In the south. The wording of this appropriation is such that i t gives the secretary of agriculture authority not only to investigate the habits of the weevil Itself, the work o f the ento­ mologists, but also t o make studies in the diversification of crops, estubllsli demonstration farms and carry on in vestlgations In th e breeding of im­ proved varieties of cottou, also tj study and suggest methods of previ u' lng several of the most serious loim i diseases. For the purpose of admluistrati >u the work i s (JIvi.ded In the department between, the bureau oC entomology and the bureau of plant industry. The work of the bureau of plant Industry will be carried on along a number o f different lines. One of the features which Dr. Gallo­ way considers of Importance Is the work that will be done on co-operath e farms b y inducing farmers to adopt better methods of cultivation. I proved cultural methods^JJie—piinrtTn of early maturing varieties o f cotton, proper fertilization of the soli and slm liar methods of Insuring vlgjruu- growth and early maturity of cottou will be special features of this work Uepresentatives of the department vl.* It forming communities and Induce progressive, farmers to set aside cer tain portions of their fields, from flu; to twenty acres usually, to be plante.l and cultivated iu accordance with plans furnished b y the government employees. The farmers entering in t > this arrangement are visited from ti . o to time by agents of the department who give special Instructions as to how the crops should b e managed. At tl>\ dose of the season the yields on t l e. demonstration fields are compart • with the yields from fields cultlvntei' In the usual way Last year more th n 5,000 farmers co-operated with the ei. perts i n this way, and this year \ i equal number will be engaged in t : work. • Another line of investigation Is l>i connection with the breeding of ty «• of cotton which will be earlier and bet ter adapted to meet new conditio!!.-, presented by the boll weevil. Of t':. standard varieties of cotton many ha . succumbed readily t o the weevil, nn ' It is important to procure types wh.o : will be prolific and at tho same tlru- be early maturing. The Important breeding work will be conducted mnli ly In the vicinity of \Waco Tex. Diversification farms are planned to encourage the growing o f other rr.> besides ofirtriri 'with a view to modify lng the single crop system of :i w south. The farms will be conducted In such a way as t o endeavor to mak- them a commercial success. The do partment puts very litQe money Inn the farms directly. Agents organic r the work and develop the plans, ami the farmers themselves are encourap- 1 to do the'rest Twenty-five or thirty o' these -farms are already In operatl >n pi^esentln#-object lessons to the fa-m j-SKj. throngbont the south who care t', take advantage o\f the opportunity Besides \the ravages o f the boll we • vil there are certain diseases o f cott.nt which cause damage each ygar.
