LOCUSTS NEARLY ALL GONE
Insects Quietly Pass Away, Leaving
Little Damage Dene.
The 17-year loeudts which created
alarm among fruit men a few weeks
ago, and which were for a time to be
heard and seen in every tract of tim
ber, are practically gone, and they
have done little if any damage. Be
yond a few twigs on trees killed in the
process of laying the eggs, there- have
ben no ill effects, the evidences not
being nearly so prominent as on their
last appearance. New the insects have
completed the process of reproduction
iind most of them have died or fallen
victims to the birds. The latter have
lived in luxury for the last few wee ks.
It has even been asserted in some
sections that they passed by cherries
and either small fruit that they usually
fed heavily on and confined their at
tention to the locusts.

The Quality of the Malt decides the body of a beer. UlatS Malt is produced in the brewery's own inalt'house by
trained Malsters (years in VA:z service). "Net only hoW much malt but hoW good" is he re the inviolable
rule. This method is expensive, but tiie desired result is always achieved Hie Vital ingredients of ihe malt are
thereby brought out and retailed. To tlie lilatz malt is due the pievailius; fi:li-!:odied State of TXlatZ Veer.
The Hops used in the brewing of lilatz Iieer are rich in aromatic properties r.nd tonics (hopbitters), which
lend to the beer that fragrance which captivates lovers of the beverage. The tonics act as a mild Stimulant t- the
digestion. Blatz Beer is perfectly fermented and ripened in the coldest and cleanest cellars extant.
The most skilled masters zealously j,ruard "Blatz" individuality. The paramount bjcct being to maintain
with absolute uniformity every characteristic that has these many years meant Ulatz Quality.
