From Philadelphia comes a story that will
Interest Xrw Jersey A young man in the
Quaker City who has been sadly mangled by
mosquitoes whenever he has visited his boathouse
house down the river claims to have discovers
n simple plantar keeping tho pests out ot tIm
house Screens wero of no avail in hla bat
house Tho Philadelphia mosquitoes are of as
sorted sizes and the small ones can work theIr
way through any screen that ho ever been con
structcd This boating man discovered that an
old woman who lived In the neighborhood hadnt
been bothered by mosquitoes for several years
bn discarded all screens and kept h windows
wlilK open at nlcht Across the open space of each
wIndoW he stretched a red ribbon about two
Inches wide She told tho boating man that the
natives of India used red ribbons to keep nil
mosquitoes and that It worked to perfection
there She wu unable to give any explanation i
of tho redribbon defence but she knew that It I
was a good one The boating man tried It and
he also alleges that not a mosquito crossed bis
ribbons He was able to sleep comfortably In
le Wi ap
his boat house with the windows open No
names go with this tory and It Is probably
another form of the theory not lone ago pop
aloe with somo Adirondack guides The
writer heard an old guide say that he
wore a red flannel shirt to keep the mosquitoes
off He raid It with a wink Hint left the hearer
01 le
free to accept his statement or not There are
other advantaee In wearing a red Mme shirt
in the woods and not th leart of them is I tho
fart that It lessens the liability of the wearers
being mistaken for I deer and becoming the
target for au Inexperienced hunter The asset
thin that a red shirt kept off mosquitoes was
too that guides delighted to make but they
seldom bal faith enough In their efficacy to
leave behind their tar oil or whatever else they
had been In the habit of using as a protection
against mosquitoes The Philadelphia redrib

nor has It as yet been proved reliable
