OF BRIDGE ITEM Bradbury Heights Citizens Also Hear Call for City Deliv ery of Mail. The reinstatement of the item for the proposed Pennsylvania Avenue Bridge in the District appropriation bill was asked by the Bradbury Heights Citizens’ Association, meeting last night in the Method'st Episcopal Church. Regular city mail delivery to the front door was asked in a motion by Robert B. Butturff. He said that Bradbury Heights was no longer rural but had grown large enough to war rant city service. Improvements to Hillside road be tween Forty-fifth and Forty-sixth places S.E. and to the alleys from Hillside road to H street and from Chaplin street to Alabama avenue be tween Forty-fifth and Forty-sixth places S.E. were asked in other reso lutions.

By Lillian Cox Athey. THE sight of one of these little beasts domiciled on our best winter suit or fur coat can do something to us in a split second. Eternal vigilance must be maintained through the summer, if irou would have whole garments in the sutumn. These little pests seek furs, wools and feathers in which to hide their eggs, for this is the only food their offlspring can accept. As the eggs are so small and the mother who lays them is so inconspicuous (though she is far from so in the eyes of an irate property owner), the small, busy in sect follows a nose that can scent out desired foundations unerringly. The tiny moth may enter through the large mesh screen of a door or window and you may see her before she has reached her goal. It is most important, if you value your property, that you do not give up until you have laid her low and for good. So many swipe at her with a paper, handker chief or even wave their hand at her. The zigzag flying creature means no good by her intrusion, and whether cgg LARVA Jo you know It or not your very Instinct is to rout the foe. By knocking her down you may have placed her In an out-of-the-way spot on your best rug. When the stunned moth comes to she does not have to seek further, you have located an ideal dark spot, surrounded with delectable wool for her children. She departs well satisfied with what she has accomplished. She may soon pass on to her reward, but in the dark corner where your efforts sent her, a lively troupe of larvae is feasting on the wooly nap of your rug. Their cousins, as soon as they have had a meal or two, construct handsome, parchmentlike cases in which to hide while they feast. But the webbing moth youngsters spin a web as they go and wherever they go. By the time the young generation decides it is time to grow up, the harm to your property is accomplished. They are ready to wrap themselves in soft silk and pretty soon will emerge as winged moths, seeking mates. The adults have a wing expanse not over a half inch. The forewings have no markings, as you can see. They are covered with a dust too fine for the unaided eye to see. You are aware of it when you strike the moth with your handkerchief. me lass caused by the small pests runs Into millions of dollars annually. The woolen and furs in use are rarely troubled. The improperly stored gar ments are more liable to attack. Precaution, taken at the time you store your furs and woolens, if prop erly taken, will protect them. Rugs under heavy furniture must be treated to a good bath of gasoline. See that it soaks into the wool and is rubbed into it thoroughly. The windows should, of course, be open at the time the application is made and no one permitted to strike a match. Do not trust moth balls and such repellants if your clothes have not been thor oughly cleaned. The odor of body oil and the collection of grease upon the garments have a powerful attractive odor for moths that is why flakes and balls and powders have so often been a disappointment. No doubt the directions for their use specified a thorough cleansing first. It is so im portant to be sure you are right, then go ahead. (Copyright. 1838.) Jolly Polly By JOS. J. FRISCH. G. L.
