Weekly Louisianian clipping

Text Item Type Metadata


We clip the following announcement from the daily Democrat, Natchez, Miss., August 3d:

We are pleased to learn that Col. G. F. Bowles, of Vidalia, has invented an exterminator of cotton worms that promises to be a real benefaction to the Southern cotton planter. The Colonel has made repeated experiments with the invention, and all being eminently successful, he feels induced to apply for a patent for his invention. The preparation, he assures us, is simple, cheap, easily applied, and perfectly harmless to the human system, but is sure death to that pest, the cotton worm. Although he is not yet operating very extensively with it, and will not until he secures a patent, he has already made a contract with a large Concordia parish planter to exterminate the worms in his fields, and has made the contract on the principle of "no cure, no pay." His confidence in the remedy leads us to believe that it will prove a genuine boon to the cotton planters.

Mr. Bowles is a prominent young colored lawyer of Concordia parish, with ability and energy. His success in connection with the above is another evidence of the rapid strides being made by the race in other enterprises than that of politics. All who will read the above ought to feel proud of the achievement of this brilliant young man.
