"WHEN THE WAR IS OVER."
When the war is over, boys,
Just take a tip from me;
There will be no German submarines
A-diving through the sea.
The Fatherland is Kaiser Bill,
The guy we are going to lick.
We will have a brand-new Kaiser,
And that sume will be a Milk.
The police force now in Berlin
Will bo Micks from County Clare;
And we will put a brand-now Kaiser
In that palace over tht-re.
In every German parkway
You will see a sweet colleen,
And the waiving fields of sauerkraut
Will be trimmed with Shamiock
green.
No sauerkraut nor sausage
When the Dutchman drink? his
suds ;
They will get corned beef and cab
bage, And good old Irish spuds.
No Long Tom guns nor gas bombs
We will throw them all away.
They will have to use shilalys
Or bricks of Irish clay.
i
i
(They will wear no Iron Crosses;
Sure 'tis Shamrocks they will wear
When we put a brand-new Kaiser
In the palace over there.

Arienate of Lime at an Intecticide.
The Missouri College of Agricul
ture suggests the use of calcium arse
nate (arsenate of lime) as an insec
ticide in place of Paris green or arse
nate of lead. It has the advantage
of being much cheaper and of stick
ing on the plants even better than
arsenate of lead. Like arsenate of
lead, it is a slow poison, and to make
it act more quickly the college sug
gests that a small amount of Paris
green four ounces to fifty gallons i
of solution be added. Spraying ma-!
terials generally are high, but so are j
fruits and vegetables, and spraying i
will pay now as well as ever before.
