Bayonnk, N. J., July 5. Human in
pcimily 1ms liei'U oxeivisiil ill n hull
ijivd ways to rival o or invent either a
cure fur mosquito bites or wnuo prevent
ive for the incursions of this imwlcomo
dimmer visitor. Otio scientist hustle-
iscd u pl.ui to riil himself of uiosrrui
t.xs, but it is of such it nature tlmt its
use entilcl not be of practical bcnelit in
largo mosquito infected areas. Neveltho
less it is worthy of recording and may
make inoro pleasant the suinnuT resi
(u nci's of thoe who can afford to lease
a ''country home."
Hi i discovered that it was from thn
ponds on his estate that the mosquito
came. lie examined the -water ami
f'.mnd upon its surface under thn micro
scepy that myriads or incipient mosqui
t'V wero there. They existed in a kind
of larval (wiulitiuu and floated upon thu
surface. After one year's or season's ex
perience of tho scourge this scientist de
vised a plan that would undoubtedly
rid such residences of mosquitoes. lie
bad the ponds ilr;:i?icil until they wero
quite dry, and then ho applied in tho
f-priiijiHine a wash of diluted creosoto
to tlie bottom and sides. Tho next sea
son !a.-t year there was not a piiigln
mosquito avouml his house, thus prov
ing that it is only necessary to arrest
the insect in its embryonic stago to iu-F-uro
immunity from it.
lint, useful as this idea may bo to
thosn who possess, similar homes, it
could bo but of little value in the f;on
eral destruction of tho mosquito, which,
so far as New York is concerned, is de
veloped fur the most part in tho marshes
It is a well known fact to entomolo
gists that it is only the l'einalo mosquito
Which "biles," or, in other words, only

the females "draw blood. " Tho malo
mosquito subsists generally upon tho
ju'cvs of (lowers and decaying vegetable !
veiticr. So does tiio fcinalo "if blood I
; .tils them. " But the female mosquito
has an abnormal thirst for mammalian i
bleed. She seeks it with an avidity only j
understood by thtKso who have saffercd j
from her search, and sho is provided i
with a most admirable organ for its ex-
t ruction. j
There is not in all naturo such an in
htasico of wasted energy comparablo
with that of the femalo mosquito's thirst
for blood. It can procreate without satis
fying its ravenous appetito for blood,
but it seems to boa delight to tho insect
to fill its gray, threadlike abdomen at
tho price of suifering humanity. For
every ono mosquito that gets the cbanco
to tastu blood thero nro nearly a million
that never taste it, and yet it would
seem that warm mammalian blood is a
necessity for their existence. It is not.
They can live upon decaying vegetable
matter and flower juices, but thu ab
normal blood thirst of tho female needs
a very salutary check beforo anything
liko a satisfactory revolution can occur.
L!ov this revolution is to ho brought
about remains for scientists to explain, !
and I do think that tho scientists and j
entomologists of Jersey should inquire
into the matter. !
But a more direct method appeals to j
us than the (hwiation of tho mosquito's
natural propensity. Naturo itself lias
i'hown to us this remedy, for in every
l.inrsh where ari bred mosquitoes wo
lind numberless dragon flies. Thodrag
ou lly feeds entirely upon other winged
insects, and hi favorito delicacy is a fe
male niosqnito; henco nr.turo causes
both the dragon fly and the mosquito to
como into existence upon the same farm
and in tho same place. Unfortunately
tho mosquito is found in immeasurably
large nutnbew in the.-o jihices, and the
dragon tlks nro comparatively few in
r.umbor. Theqnestion is, Ilowafoweto J
propagato thn dragon fly in such mini- j
hers as to afteot thn production of mos-1
quitoes? That is a question for entomolo-1
gists to answer, but it. is certain that in
marshes where mosquitoes did abound
and afterward the dragon fly made
his appearance the former pest is seen
or felt no longer.
There are some marshes m Jersey
which are jn-rfectly free from mosqui
toes, as are there also in Long Island
and elsewhere, but if a visitor to these
places will take the tronblo to observe
he wil! tind that in theso marshes thero
urn innumerable dragon flies. It is an
easy lesson, and it should bo remem
All kinds of remedies nro suggested I

itself should be overcome. Tho creosot

in private parks or farms. Tho propaga
