Dewel cottage at Clear Lake, this is ihe explanation. Last week Mr. Dewel, on his way to the cottage, purchased some 24D at a local place of business. As he prepared to leave he picked up the jug which he thought contined 24D. Reaching the cottage, he mixed up the solution and went to work on spraying weeds about the place. Then—after he finished— he discovered that by mistake he had a jug of Coca Cola, and if the weeds were thirsty they should now feel refreshed.
