H. Bickford, Woodsville, N. H. GAPES AND HOW CURED PROF D. J. LAMBERT, Rhode Island .Experiment Station Gapes is a parasitic disease which af flicts nearly all kinds of domestic poul try, especially the young and the weak lings. The gapeworms are of various sizes, not over one-half inch in length, and appear to be of forked shape. In reality this is a pair, the larger part being the female and the smaller or branch the male. These In combination attach them selves to the lining or mucous membrane of the trachea by a disk-shaped sucking mouth and live on the blood of their victims, gradually weakening them and finally strangling them to death. The vmntoms are eeneral lassitude, loss of appetite, drooping wings and difficult breathing. t Gapes are often contracted through filthy and contaminated soil. Sometimes the worms coughed up by the infected birds find congenial lodgment in the wet ground, multiply rapidly and are eaten greedily by fowls and chickens in search of other animal food. There are various mechanical devices and inventions for extracting the gape worms. One is a horsehair looped through a small metal tube. Another and perhaps the most effectual is a long stiff feather tip. This dipped in tur pentine and inserted carefully down the trachea, then rapidly twirled and then immediately withdrawn, will often dis lodge the worms and sometimes save the chick. Another Mode of Treatment . Another mode of treatment is to con fine the afflicted birds in a box or barrel, having the open part upward; cover the opening with coarse cloth or sacking and then sift in some pulverized tobacco dust or snuff. This treatment causes the chirks to eneene and expectorate, and if they are strong and vigorous to cough up the worms. As a preventive of contagion, the in fected birds should be promptly sepa rated from the well. All dead birds should be burned or buried deep in the ground. The soil in poultry yards and runs should be plowed or spaded up fre quently and exposed to the sun and air. Air-slaiced or carbonated lime should be applied to the ground used for poultry runs, whether it is often turned over or not. Sprinkling the surface with a two per cent, solution of sulphuric acid Mill tend to destroy the parasites and also earthworms, which are sunpected of be ing carriers of gapeworms. The drinking vessels should be kept clean by scalding and refilling frequent ly. A small amount of permanganate of potash added to the water, just enough to tint it a light wine color, will As in all diseases, preventive methods are the best.

Miss Blanche Haskins, who ia passing a few weeks at the home of her parents on Trow hill, went yesterday to Hreens- boro, where she will pass a few days in camp. Miss Haskins will return to Bos ton next week. About 15 members of the 1013 com mercial class of Snaulding high school conducted its annual outing yesterday. The members were transported to Berlin yesterday forenoon and the day was passed at Berlin pond. Dinner was served at the Stewart cottase. ' The day was passed in boating, canoeing and oth er forms of amusement. Mr. and Mrs. William McDonald accompanied the class on the ride. George Merrill, the Middlesex farmer against whom an entry of nolle prosequi was recently made in city court, after he had been detained on a statutory charge, returned yesterday from a fruit less hunt on both sides of the Connecti cut river for a horse and carriage which he claims had been taken from his pos session. Merrill believes he knows the man who has the outfit and in his con ference with the police authorities to day he disclosed the circumstances under which the man was to meet him at Northflcld and turn over the rig. Mer rill kept his part of the engagement and soon after the other principal in the proposed meeting failed to appear, the Middlesex man began to hear of his vis iting different towns on his way down to White River Junction, where he is be lieved to have crossed the river into New Hampshire. The authorities have caused to be printed a large number of circulars describing the rig and copies have been sent to every town of any size in Ver mont and New Hampshire, Civil and city authorities are apt to clash over a curious situation which ex ists on Branch street, where a particular spot on the highway resembles a small sized auction road. The way to the present confliction of authority was laid open last Friday when a constable served an ejectment writ on a tenant in that locality for the alleged non-payment of rent. When tha household .oidi had been removed to the curbing, the owner announced a determination to wash h'.s hands of the whole affair. Thus far his promise to leave the furniture, etc., where it was deposited on the curbing has been kept faithfully and some few showers that have doused his possessions have not served to change hi mind. Now arises a question as to whether anyone, has the right to obstruct an artery of travel and it is underst-v-J that aggrieved persons, weary of going sround the pile of household goods, are taking the matter up with the city's legal agent. Residents of little Brook lyn, so-called, are awaiting with more than a mild degree of interest the out come of the ejectment proceedings.

Frank M vers, a strolling exponent of the tonsorial art, pleaded guilty to an intoxication charge before Magistrate H. W. Scott in city court this forenoon and decided to serve 20 days in the county jail at Montpelier in lieu of paying the o fine and costs imposed by the judge. Mvers said he came from Ludlow, where undrcds could testify to the virtue of his "once-overs." Since he hit the lon rail, he has been clipping his way along the rural highways, now rutting a man's air for a noonday hand-out, and then honing someone's razor for a lodging. He came to town with the circus Satur day and was arrested by Officer Harry .amble in the evening. Mrs. orron, better known as Berniee I-ane, pleaded guilty to having been found intoxicated nd -arranged to pay a $ hne with fS costs. She was arrested at II o clock last evening by Officer John S. Murley, ho was called to the orron home at 7 Brooklyn itreet to quell an alleged isturbance. A second-best crowd of the season, ac cording to the show people themselves, nswered the call of the circus at the Ayers street grounds Saturday afternoon and evening. Wheeler Bros, modestly dhere to the comparative degree in de signating their exhibition as the "greater hows," and in the interests of accuracy it is well that the superlative is not em- loved. For a circus that makes no pretense to being on a par with the ex- ibitions of Barnum. Kinglmp- or rore- paiigh. Wheeler Bros.' show did very well nd those who saw their animals per form and their men and women in the rena had no particular reason for com- lamina. To tell the truth there is nothing gigantic about the whol,' affair, but for a clean-cut presentation of hints that are found in every circus, the brothers did all that they promised and more. There were few empty seats in he afternoon and the crowd in the even ing was gratifyingly large, so the circus folks declared. On a level with most leshows were the exhibits to be found outside the bis; tent. Wheeler Bros, have ith them a hsndv crew of aerialixts and number of hows that are seldom bet tered snvwhere.. Two bands of music ere on band for both performances and the usual amount of comedy was sprin kled about the arena when thinirs were dull in the big rings. The crowd pre served a good-nstured attitude and there was scarcely so much as a single disturb ance throughout the day. Over Sunday the circiis parked its kit and left over the Central Vermont railroad for Randolph. TALK OF THE TOWN Boys' khaki suits and trousers from the McWhorter Co.' .' Mr. and. Mrs. ' .

It increase? efficiency. . . " Everybody ought to own a car. Now everybody can own a car a good car; for the Saxon is a high-grade, well-designed, carefully built automobile, with four-cylinder motor, left drive, center control and standard features throughout, produced by an experienced organization, sound financially and in business to stay. Good and Good, Looking The first cost of a Saxon is less than a good horse and buggy; the upkeep cost far less. Its maintenance is almost negligible. " The tires cost little. A gallon of gasoline takes it 25 miles and more. It is so simple that it scarcely ever needs readjustments or repair. Saving in time considered, it is cheaper than riding on street cars. The Saxon is the answer to the insistent demand for a low-priced car that is not onlv good, but good-looking. . It is a big car for the price. Has flfi-inch wheel base, standard tread, roomy body, holding two people easily, ample leg room, generous doors. There is nothing skimpy or cramped about it. Molded oval fenders, tapered bonnet, and stream-line body with graceful, sweeping curves make it a delight to the eye. The Saxon is amply powered. The high-speed, four-cylinder motor gives great pulling power and flexibility. It throttles down to five miles an hour or speeds over the road at 40 and without unpleasant vibration or jarring.
