follows:
Total number of microscopic
examinations 2,459. Of these
918 were found infected, which
is 37 1-2 per cent. 1,011 between
the ages of six and eighteen

found infected which gives a
percentage of 56 1-. 1,077 per

Those taking two doses 112.
Those taking three doses 53.
Those taking four (loses 543.

Webb Bill Only
Paves the Way
There is no statute by the
State prohibiting the importa
tion of liquor from ' anothe:
State for personal use, and th<
Webb act gives the State the
right to enact such a statute, If
it so desires, is the opinion of
the South Carolina Supreme
Court in deciding a case te'tg
the constitutionality of the
Webb act. The opinion hcdks
that the old dispensary act for.
bidding the ordering of liquor
for personal use from other
St'tes, having been declared
unconstitutional before the
passage of the Webb act, could
not be vitalized by the passage
of the Webb act.
"It is not the intention of the
Webb act to interfere with the
policy of the State in regard to
the importation of liquor, but
meiely to provide that. the en
forcenient of a State statute
would not be interfered with, or
hampered by the interstate com
merce laws," says the decisioi.
How to Get Rid
of Potato Bugs
The following is Walter Lan

deposited -mix bugs, leaves and
eggs together in the can, pour
cold water on them, then have
your wife build a fire in the
stove, bring the mixture to a
slow boil, keep it boiling for ten
minutes. Then dig a hole a
foot deep In the soil, pour the
contents of the can into It, put
a rock over it and haye your
wife fill the hole with earth,
tramping It thoroughly.
This is guaranteed to effect
ually get rid of all the bugs and
eggs you can catch. Those you
fail to catch, poison with one
part paris green, todifteen parts
of lime, ashes, or flour sifted
through an old loose woven
sack.
