II lmeasemeallm .IV THE BUFFALO GNAT. The TIMES is promnied somne specimens of this interesting insect, and also soime infortation concern ing its lpropaation. Like all sub jects that are scientifically consid ered. a number of popular super stitions regarding these gnats, will be shown to he without foundation, and the, "that's just what I've alwayvssaid" men will be left with out a leg to stand on. One thing is ascertained beyond question, and that is, that these pests do not gen erate in still water. The eggs are only found in running water. Just how much the Mississippi over flows have to do with them has not been ascertained. Like all well regulated husbands, the gentleman tnat stays at home. He is never found prowling around. In fact lie is rarely, if ever, found at all. The female portion of the gnat coinmunity do the gadding around. while the husband and father stays quietly at home, doubtless reflect ilng on the peculiarities of the fe male character as illustrated by the lady gnat. As soon as the specimens arrive, and the informa tion regarding them, the facts will be duly chroniced, and the insects placed on exhibition. Since writing the above, the samples, through the kindness of Mr. J. M. Reigart, have been re ceived, and can be seen at this office. POLICE JURY. T ESDAIY, Marh "· I, R1S7.
