County Adviser Wade for the destruction
of grasshoppers

two g-allons of water add Vi gallon of sug-ar factory molasses, and 6 finely
chopped lemons. Stir thoroughly and then pour over the bran and arsenic
mixture. Work thoroughly until all lumps are worked out and the bran is
all damp. Scatter where grasshoppers are working a rod or two on either side
as you would sow grass seed broadcast by hand or an end gute seeder might
be used where there is considerable area to be covered. From 8 to 25 lbs. of
mixture may be applied per acre and if spread evenly will not endanger live

How Threads
Make Better
The Willard Threaded Rubber Insulation is one of the
virn lni P° rtan f °f many marked improvements which the
'j i- 1 organization has made in the automobile starting
and lighting battery.
The reasons why it means so much to you as a car
owner are, briefly, as follows:
1. Insulation is considered by many electrical engin
f ers m os1 important single factor in the efficiency and
long lue of electrical apparatus.
j "• ' 11 a dorage battery the most important insulation is
between the plates—
Because the plates are the very source of the electrical
. ® eca use the ]if e 0 f the plates and their continued ef
ciency depends largely on the insulation.
ecause it is sealed up inside the battery and cannot
be repaired or renewed without tearing the battery apart.
a w?,, 1et ? e I, th e insulation, the better the battery.
. r 4, Willard threaded Rubber is better insulation for
two great reasons.
nil mal - es possible - what has long been a dream of
an battery engineers:
AP£ ctical way to use rubber—the most durable
insulating material known—for insulating automo
battery plates without either decreas
uig the voltage m cold weather or increasing the
size of the battery beyond Practical limits!
