PLANT PEST KILLERS.
Thoro is a lending nrticlo in tho
:3uu Francisco Chroniclo, headed
Ladybirds to tho Fiont," which
"3ontains facts of gioat interest to
t-.heso ishinds. It tells of extra
ordinary work beii.g poiformod
by tho nativo and impoited lady
birds in Siinta Barbara county,
which it says is attracting tho
attontiou of tho fruit-growing
world. A fi-w years ago tho

juch numbers," says tho Chroni
cle, "that thoro is scarcely a
-truoo of tho woolly aphis to be
ound in tho county today." An
other post of California is a
-vorm that attacks awoet corn,
which has infested the cornfields
of the Statu fnm an early date.
Throe or four years ngo, on one
if tho laig farms near Santa
Butbara, wneie every variety of
ladybirds had boen carefully
fostered, tho little croaturos
-began tho work of exterminating
the enemy. They multiplied with
inconceivable rapidity and, feed
ing upon tho oggh of tho moth
that broods tho grub, the lady
birds ontiroly cleared the farm on
which the' began, and uro this
season found patiolling n stretch
of coast valloy mora thun thirty
anilos in length. It is predicted
by tho Chronicle that in a few
yoars this grub, which is a terror
"to tho grower of oarly vegetables
:as well as to tho corn-raiser, will
lie pract'cul y unknown. Thoso
facts c noorning the work of tho
ludjbiid in California are en-

.cofioo trees, which seriously
threatened to destroy that in
dustry at tho outset of its lecont
great oxpansion. They woro
swarming on tho guava bushes
and other shrubs and it looked
as if thoy woro going to obtain
3ubsistonco without eating tho

Iustead of rcnuirinc poople to
bo at homo when tho sub- inspec
tor makes his call, as suggostod
by Mr. McStockor, it would bo
hotter to cull for more volunteers
to do tho inspection. Some of
the sub-inspectors havo far too
many people to account for. Those
who havo comparatively short
routes mauago to get along vory
well in accounting f r ovory por

Thero ought to bo a ohnngo in
methods of tho Board of Health,
so that peoplo who aro yot well
in infected houses shall not bo
taken to the cholera hospital Still
worse is it for tho Board to con
sign healthy neighbors of infected
families to the pesthouso. Muny
of the cases thus far huve devel
oped among personB takon to
tho hospital when thoy woro not
s ok. Thoro should at least bo a
soparuto quarantino refugo for
porsons of both olnsses named.
Sinco the foregoing was written
a mombor of tho Cabinet informs
us that all well pooplo tiro quar

On Suuduy prominent places
wero placarded with a notico in
Hawaiian stating that oholora
patients bad been taken alivo in
coffins to Makiki cemetery, with
their mouths wuxed and thoir
hands bound. It was further
stated that at the burial ground
two coilins wero oponod and found
to oontain a livo man and woman,
who woro t-ikon out and being
cared for aro doing woll. Tho
roi8i)ti given by those rescued
peoplo for their troatmout, the
notice and, was that they had ro-
fused to tako modioino from tho
Board of Health doctor. It is
an enemy and not u friend of the
Htiwuiians who o.mld be guilty of
uttering such false rubbish.

L. A. Thurston oxpluinod the
d lfioulty of establishing an of
foctual quiruntino of the infected
districts on account of tho scat

hod been taken. Ho presented an
outlino of tho report which it was
proposed to submit to the Boaid
of Hoalth this nftornoon, and ask
ed for an expression of opinion
from thoso present tboroon.
The idoa of tho committeo was
to sot apart two days at tho latter
pait of tho week in which busi
ness of all kinds was to bo sus
pended under un order of the
Board of Health, a printed copy
of tho order to bo posted on each
houso in tho city with nocossurv
instructions for disinfecting and
fumigating. Tho wholo of tho
two days to bo utilized in tho
work of cleaning, whitewashing,

Upon the question boing ltiised
as to whether there was enough
d.sinfocting matonul to go round
the fot was developed that only
80 barrels of limo was lift in tho
cty und that tho output of E. B.
Thomas's limo kiln owing to de
footivo burning would bo but 50
barrels instead of tho 150 oxpoct
od. Thoro was a vessel due from
the coast with 150 barrels on board
which might arrivoany time. Mr
Thurston thought at loast 150
barrels would bo required.

Mr. Lowrey wanted to know if
fumigating tho diflerent rooms
would not be just us effectual.
Mr. Thurston answered that
owing to most of the houses being

would bo impossible.
Mr. Mursilon suggested taking
a list only of those houses need

Mr. Richards suggestod thoiin
policu of picking out thoso houses
ou account of tho ill-feeling which
would bo engendered.
Mr. Kaulia said his district
was composed largely of natives.
He thought thoy would gladly do
tho work of whitewashing and
disinfecting if the government
furnished tho material.
Dr. Smith said that anything
exposed to tho direct ruys of tho
sun lor a day is thnrouguiy dis
infected, as tho cholera germ is
driod out after two or threo hours.

In these times the great de
sideratum is how to keep your
home healthy and free trom
disease. It can be done easily
by means of a little invention
known as the "Roberts Ozona
tor." This neat little arrange
ment is made to screw any
where on the wall, in bath
rooms and other places where
the atmosphere is impure. It
contains a receptacle for the
fluid, which is vaporized by
means of a large circular wick
inclosed in a perforated brass
chamber. The fluid used is
"Sanitas Vaporizer Mixture"
expressly prepared for the pur
pose. It is the best and
cheapest disinfector known; it
neutralizes all unpleasant odors
and imparts an agreeable fra
grance throughout the house,
reminding the residents of the
balmy atmosphere of a pine
forest. Its low price places it
within the reach of all. This
little invention is now in use
by upwards of 1000 Boards of
Health, Hospitals, asylums and
By the last Australia we re
ceived a fresh lot of Water
coolers. The outside is of
tin, handsomely painted, and
the inside of granite ware with
a large air chamber between.
These are durable, convenient
and cheap and just the thing
to use for boiled water.as there
is no danger of cracking from
We are now unpacking our
new line of Alaska ice chests,
suitable for small fami
lies and small purses. These
ice chests took the prize
at the last Mechanic's Fair
competition in San Francisco
over twentv others, after an
actual contest of a week's
duration. If something more,
elaborate is needed we have
the Belding's New Perfection
chest, by far the finest ever
seen here. We placed a block
of ice in one on Monday and it
is there yet, and from present
appearances will last another
week, although we have open
ed the chest to show to hun
dreds of our customers.
Another little useful article
about this time is a reversible
filter for attaching to hydrants,
hose, sink or bathroom fascets.
They are self-cleaning and ef
fectually shut out wricfirlers.
weeds, and dirt of all kinds.
We have them in two styles at
IS cents and a dollar.
If you have time "drop in at
the store and take a look at the
above articles, and also at a
new line of infants' bath tubs
which are just the thing.
