"It has long been known that oil
is one of the best agents to be em
ployed in the destruction of insects,"
said a druggist last evening, "but
unfortunately the best methods of
using it have never been drawn out
to a fine point. Insects mostly
breathe through pores, and the oil
closing these pores suffocates the in
sects; but if used in its full strength
oil will, at the same time, close the
breathing pores of the plant, and be
just as destructive to one as the
"About one-half a wine glass of
oil, with a gallon of rain water, is
the quatity recommended for the de
struction of such insects as red spi
ders, thirps and aphis. To mix the
water and oil it has to be boiled with
soap, in the proportion of about one
part of soap and eight of water.
When the mixture of soap and water
is near the boiling point it is poured
into bottles and the oil added at that
time. The nearer the liquid
is to the boiling point at
the time the oil is applied the
better it will mix. Corked
in bottles it can be kept for use. It
is said that many of the insecticides
advertised for amateur flower grow
ers are made in this way prepara
tions being occasionally varied and
where it can be bought cheaply it is
often better to get it in that way
than to go to the trouble of making
it oneself. Sometimes the material
obtained in this way may be diluted
further by water, but it" is impossi
ble to give exact directions in these
cases. Those who try them must
watch results and learn a little from
their own experience."

Kiner, of the Geneseo News, is re
sponsible for the following:
It is now an established fact,
proven by recent practical demon
strations in different parts of the
country, that it is possible for a man
to make it rain whenever he wants to
that is, if he is onto the combina
tion, which is as yet known to only a
very few, and is in an embryotic
state. But the time may come when
the farmer will number among his
other farming implements a rain
making machine. Looking into the
dim and distant future, we can see
the farmer haul his rain-making ma
chine out from under the implement
shed, touch it off, and immediately,
or thereabouts, there will be a rain
fall such as would today, or better,
two weeks ago, make our farmers get
up and holler "hallelujah!" with
a vehemence, and- cavort around
like a democrat listening to the elec
tion returns last fall. Every farmer
will not have one; it would be im
practicable to have them too numer
ous, as it would work discord among
the tillers of the soil, because one
farmer might be putting his hay up.
while his neighbor would be through
haying and would want rain. Should
he touch off his machine, and bring
rain on his neighbor's hay, the latter
would be liable to go over and im
pale him on a hay fork. We sug
gest, therefore, that the states be
divided into districts, with only
one machine in a district, con
trolled by an executive commit
tee. This suggestion may seem
a little premature, but it is better to
take time by the forelock than by the
fetlock, and have these things under
stood beforehand. As a further sug
gestion it might be well for the exec
utive committee to formulate bylaws
and ingraft therein a clause provid
ing that the machine shall only be
touched off upon the receipt of a pe
tition signed by two-thirds of the
farmers in the district. And then
what a snap this would be for the
hired man if every farmer had one.
He could get up in the middle of the
night, touch off the machine, lay off
all the next day on account of the
rain come to town and eat peanuts.
An exchange gives a list of nine
classes of people who do a town no
good. First, those who go out of
town and do their trading. Second,
those opposing improvements.
Third, those who prefer a quiet town
to one of push and business. Fourth,
those who imagine they own the
town. Fifth, those who 'think busi
ness can be done slyly without ad
vertising. Sixth, those who deride
publie-spiiited men. Seventh, those
who oppose every movement that
does not originate" with themselves.
Eighth, those who oppose every spir
ited enterprise that does not appear
to benefit them. Ninth, those who
seek to injure the credit of an indi
vidual. To CleanKe the Sytem
