Moth Catcher consists of a ppntrnl
light, a coal oil or kerosene torch, nnd
having four radiating reflectors to serve
as bumpers to knock the insects down
into the coal oil on the surface of the
water in the tub or pan below. By
this simple device the parent ones are
destroyed before they lay the eggs to
produce the worms, and as a result I

Farmers nnd fruit growers should

later will be an lnipossibily. They
should be destroyed In the early inor;

caterpillars have left or after returned

A citizen of Loysvllle, writing to the
Bloomfield Democrat on the subject
of caterpillars says: "Caterpillars are
again becoming very numerous. The
plan used here to destroy them is to
take lime and prepare It as common
whitewash, tie a cloth to the end of a
cloth to the end of a pole, dip it iu
liquid and either thrust it iu the nest
or saturate it with It and it will bring
the answer every time. It is not in

Adam Showers, a V Cuowb real
dent of this place, died last Wednesday
evening having been stole only from
Monday. Monday morning be was
working in the garden and not feeling
well he walked up town and gradually
grew worse and till evening, his case
was pronounced hopeless. He became
unconscious and from that time to his
last respiration was a- labored effort
until he yielded to the Inevitable sum
He was a son of William Showers
and his wife, Mary, and was born Oct
6, 1840, In Beaver township, this coun
ty, aud was one of a family of seven
children, of which there were four sons
and three daughters, as follow-: Mrs,
Rebecca Zeehnian, widow of Henry
Zechman; William, James, Adam, the
deceased; Sarah, Phares and Amanda.
All are dead except the first named.
He was married Oct. 4, 1870 at Free
burg by Rev. C. G. Erlenmyer to Miss
Mary SUiufl'er of Selinsgrove. This
union was blessed with three daugh
ters : Anna, married to William H.
Spangler, druggist of this place; Lottie,
the wife of C. W. (iiaybill, of the
Eagle Hotel, and Maude who resides
at home. There are two grandchildren.
The deceased was aged 5"i years, 7
months and 8 days.
Mr Showers was a cobbler and shoe
maker by trade having acquired the
art from Peter S. Albert of Selinsgrove
and he acquired more tlum usual skill
In his chosen calling. He had many
friends and was at all times more con
siderate for the welfare of others than
ho was of his own. Among his people
he was always highly respected, hav
ing served a number of terms on the
town council and was a member of
that body when he died.
He was laid lo rest Saturday iu the
Middleburg cemetery and his remains
were followed by a large number of
friends and acquaintances, the obse
quies having been conducted by Revs.
Kohler and Dlehl.
Dear Sir: You know your painter;
we don't ; we only know painters In
general. There are two sorts, as there
are two sorts of everybody else. One
paints as well as he can ; the ofber as
poor as he can and get business.
The one who paints as well as ho can
is all the time learning ; the other one
knows it all now.
Josh Billings says "it's better not to
know too much than to know so many
things that a'n't so." There are lots o'
things iu paint that a'n't no." Lead
aud oil is one of 'em.
Devoe lead and zinc huts twice as
long ; is better iu every respect ; is ready
o dip the brush iu ; you can depend on
Ihecolors ; no mystery ; no uncertain
ty ; costs no more ; cosw less.
We hope you employ Mr. Open-Mind
Painter, ami not Mr. Know-it-all-iuw.

it was discovered that one of them had
done the shooting, but with w hat mo
