Oil As a Spray for
Much Unrecognized Loss to Fanciers
Due to Insect Pests Mosquitoes as
Bad as Lice and Mites.
The loss In dollars and cents to
poultry raisers through parasite in
sects is a leak that is a very real one,
though probably realized by but few.
Moat amateurs have learned by pain
ful experience that lice and mites will
kill chicks, but apparently do not stop
to consider that a pest that can kill a
young bird must also be injurious to
a grown one, even if not fatal. The
voracious rod mite, which attacks the
fowls on the roost, will however, come
pretty near killing even grown chick
ens, when sufficiently numerous.
Mosquitoes are another pest in most
parts of Hawaii that poultrymen
should protect their birds from. There
is good reason to believe that "sore
head" is most generally spread by the
bite of the night mosquito. There is
no question that mosquitoes are fre
quently the direct cause of the death
of young chicks. But everyone who
has ever noted the all night long rest
lessness of grown chickens on a still
night, when the roosting coop is
swarming with the little winged blood
suckers, will have no doubts that mos
quitoes may be detrimental to all
Nor is it reasonable to believe that
hens can do their best in egg yield
when their rest is disturbed as well as
a considerable amount of their blood
taken by insects.
It is not difficult to prevent all this
trouble, but like everything else in
successful poultry culture, it does
take care and constant watching.
Itoosting houses should be moequito
proof, but in making them so do not
economize in wire screen at the ex
pense of plenty of ventilation. Lard,
or most any kind of grease, applied to
the ends of the roosts and in all cre
vices in the roosts themselves is nn
antidote for mites. A little kerosene
oil with the grease may possibly make
it better. And kerosene, by the way,
is probably the most effective insecti
cide known. Mixed with lard and ap
plied sparingly to the head and under
the wings, it is held by many poultry-
men to excell any other remedy for
lice. It is very effective as a spray
for ridding the inside of poultry
When the Saloon Closes
Few persons realize the wonderful
record that Kansas shows at the end
of her 30 years' prohibition of the
sale of alcoholic liquors. A careful
investigator, writing in "The Outlook"
recently, stated that:
In S7 of her 105 counties Kansas
has now no insane.
In 54 of these counties there are
no feeble minded.
Ninety-six of her counties have no
Thirty-eight of her county poor
houses are empty.
Fifty-three of her jails were recent
ly empty, and 65 counties had no pri
oners in the state penitentiary.
The entire number of paupers in the
state falls short of 600.
Some of the counties have not call
ed a grand jury to try a criminal case
in 10 years.
Not long ago Kansas had 200 mil
lions of dollars in her banks; her
farmers owned live stock valued at
225 millions of dollars, and in one
year the people have added 45 mil
lions of dollars to their taxable prop
erty. Only two per cent, of the entire
population is illiterate.
The mortality rate has dropped
from 17 per 100 to 7 per 100.
Does no-license and prohibition pay
the people of a town or of a slate?
Kansas certainly answers the ques
tion with wonderful figures that don't

Benjamin String, Jr., governor of
New York's federal reserve bank, said
at a recent luncheon:
"Those who object to the new sys
tem of federal banks must be of an
incidious disposition. They must mis
understand purposely the logic of the
system. IJke the girl you know.

houses, nest, boxes, etc., of vermin.
Out for this purpose it evaporates too
rapidly to be of lasting value. The
writer for several years has used al
most exclusively for spraying, a mix
ture of equal parts of ordinary Cali
fornia crude oil and kerosene. It is
probably not excelled by any of the
many preparations used for the same
purpose, and it Is very cheap. 'he
crude oil also lasts much better than
the kerosene alone. The only objec
tion to it is that it soils the plumage
of the birds, if they ccme in contact
with the sides or nests where it has
ThU oil spray also tends to keep off
mosquitoes, where houses are not
screened. A piece of burlap saturated
with the oil and hung in the roosting
house. Is especially effective for this
purpose. r j

The Marketing Division advi-es
that Island eggs have advanced to 33
cents, and that the likelihood of their
going below 30 cents wholesale again
this season is slight
Due to the good condition and low
price of mainland onions, island
onions aie very hard to sell at a Fro
fit to the growers, either nt home or
on the mainland. The Southern Cali
fornia Bermuda onions are exception
ally early this year and are, on the
mainland, marketed at a low figure
The army contract for April was let
for $1.49 a hundred pounds, against
$3.95 last year. It is estimated that
theie will be about 600 bags of I si iiid
onions to be put on the market lur
ing the next two months. The price Is
likely to drop Instead of rise, so prs
ducers should make arrangements u
get their onions to market as soon as
mature and well dried. Sending
onions to market before they are well
cured caused large losses last year.
This year the curing is much improv
ed. Cabbage In Demand.
Cabbage Is a good seller and profc
ably will be for several months. M it
of the cabbage received at the divi
sion during the past week has been
badly bug-eaten. When this cannot be
prevented in the field, the outer leaves
should be cut off before sending it to
market. By doing this the producer
would save the freight on the unsal
able portion, as well as save the
leaves for feeding to livestock, to say
nothing of the trouble to the division
in stripping it upon arrival.
