MOSQUITOES
Pert Which Causes Suffering and
Annoyance
Mosquitoes are man's Inveterate tor
mentors and foes. At the seaside, on
the undrnlned .prairies of the West and
Northwest, In the far North, by wood
"tond pool and mountain meadow these
bloodthirsty brigands In countless
myriads wuylny the Individual on busi
ness or pleasure" bent.
Swamps, ponds fjnil marshes, how

breed, mosquitoes. A little rain water
In, an old tin can or, undrnlned roof
futter, if neglected.MVlll supply, mos
quitoes for n town 'or city neighbor
hood, spreading discomfort, causing
Insomnia and tempting to profanity.
If mosquitoes ,wero merely a bother;
lotne plague, there would be niiiplo
Justification for unrelenting warfare
agaipst them, but when It Is consid
ered that several species Scattered
Dveu tho United Stntes disseminate ma
laria, rendering many regions of great
fertility almost uninhabitable, and
that one kind, of mosquito found in the
South will convey yellow fever, no ar
gument for fighting them Is necessary.
Dancing, Saturday Night
Program for Haitians in
Their Little Villages
Dancing to the music of a drum, sax
aphone and flute Is the chief sonrco of
imusement for Hnitlans in their little
'Mages on Saturday night, according
to an article by Wlllinm Almon Wolff
In Collier's Weekly. Beginning at sun
down every Saturday night, ho writes,
Dne will como to n wine shop, if one
follows the sound of the drum. Tho
irummer sits outside. His unceasing
drumming marks tho rhythm of the
music; what melody there Is, is borne
by a flute, and nlmost always there
ls,a saxophone. The imislc.ls the same
it, every dance. It. Is in common timo;
single cadence is repeated, over and
over ngnln.
Dancing In Haiti resembles tho satur
nnlla among the Australian aborigines,
Mr. Wolff writes. Tho dancers aro
frank and unashamed, and ouc, gets
little or no feeling of a personal note
between the two one sees dnnclng;
rather they nro staging a spectacle.
PITH AND POINT
Tq find, work, go to work and

Before taking certain steps
consult a dancing mnster.
A wlso barber asks the young
man if ho wishes n haircut.
A small boy's idea of u board

However, the early boom
doesn't always catch tho nomina

Tobacco Far North.
Tobacco growing at C5 degrees
north latitude would seem nn Impossi

many farmers since the war.
Lowly Angle Worm an Aid
in Fertilizing4he Soil,
an. Authority Declares
That the despised angle worm, whlMi
for ages has been, tho choice food of
the robin, tho terror of "Little Miss
Muffets" nnd tho joy of-fishcrmon, hns
nil this time been working for tho
benefit of mnnklnd without any par
ticular credit Is nn Interesting inct
brought to light.
According to Prof.. Frank Smith of
the University of, Illinois, who is nn
j'authorlty in this country on nngle
umi, must 01 ine real grounus ror
complaint ngnlnst, the angle worm is
duo to an Introduced, species which is
comm6Tfitotheinorthern'tIcr of utatd9
There are few infected areas, some of,
which have, their origin traced bock
to accidental importation byjthe trails-
t)ltmtatlon of trees frnin nnrrlinrn Tin.
riolsV Thpsel worms are ot largo, slzti,
ana have the habit of pulling leaves
nnd small twigs into the mpuths "of
their burrows, nndi together with the
earth brought up by them, they form
the little mounds which mnko the sur
face of n.lawn quite rough, and henco
they make mowing more difficult.
Professor Smith states that apart
from the roughness of the surface of a
lawn, the results of their work Is
doubtless beneficial. An enrth worm
makes Its burfow from one to threo
feet in depth, these burrows 'providing
means for convoying surface water to
deeper layers, and also for aerating
these layers. In this work they have
been important ngerits in making the
soil, fertile through the years.

And wo,ke with a bug in your ear,
And your damsel that walks in the morn

And true lovo has an eye for a dinner,
And starves beneath shady trees.
