For Mites And Red Spiders.
A. Surface, State Zoologist, Harris-
burgh, shows a great demand for de-
finite information on the methods of
destroying Mites or Red Spiders. To
meet this he has issued the following
Among the very common pests of
plants are those commonly known as
Mites or Red Spiders. As a matter
of fact they are not Spiders, although
they belong to the same general order
animate life asdo the Spiders. Neith-
er are they always red, asin fact, they
are generally grayish or whitish.
These pests are properly called Mites.
There are several species of them,some
of which are the most serious pests of
veget .tion, wh 1: others attack stored
fruits and still others are in the com-
mon class of Red Lice of Poultry,
Those Mites which attack vegeta-
tion generally accompany Mildew,
and where the leaf or other part of
the plant looks powdery or whitish,as
though it were more or less covered
with floor, the plant disease known as
' Mildew is doubtless the cause, and
Mites are generally present. With a
microscope these pests are plainly ob-
served with their sharp legs, and their
sharp beaks, by which they pierce the
tissue and suck the flnids from within.
As they belong to the group of suck-
ing insects they are not to be killed
by arsenical poisons, any more than
“are plant lice or scale insects.
Fortunately, there is a specific or re-
liable standard remedy for Mijes wher-
ever, they are found, or regardless of
whatever they attach. This is sulfur
is some or any of its form. Powdered
sulfur or snlfurin solution or even fine
sulfur stirred in water will destroy
them. Powdered sulfur ean be dust-
ed over them or rubbed into the feath-
ers cof fowls or dusted over infested
plants. But the difficnlty with this
material is to make it stick, and also
to apply it thoroughly to hen roosts
and to the under sides of the leaves
of plants. Therefore, it is best to use
the lime-sulfur solution, such as is
made or sold for spraying trees. For
destroying Mites in poultry houses the
strength of the lime-sulfur solution is
not important. as State Zoologist H.
A. Surface has proven that these
“pests are readily destroyed by a
thorough spraying with the lime-sul-
far solution at almost any strength.
It is an easy matter to spray the in-
terior of a hen house and the roosts
and thus destroy the Red Lice or Red
Mites of poultry.
Mites on plants are also best destroy-
ed by spraying with dilute lime-sulfur
solution or the self-boiled lime-sulfur
formala. ‘One pint of strong lime sul-
, fur solution in ten gallons of water is
*Y generally enough to have the desired
effect for Mites and Mildew of grow-
ing vegetation. The spraying should
be done with an up-turned nozzle held
beneath the leaves of the plants, in
order to strike the under side of the
leaves, and also turned so asto cover
the upper side. A few varieties of
dilution which is a little greater but
most plangs when in leave will stand
even a stronger application than this,
which should consequently be made.
By local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of thejear.
There is only one way to cure deat-
ness, and that .is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is causedgby an
inflamed condition of the mucous
lining of the Eustachian Tube. When
this tube is inflamed youlhave a ram-
bling sound or imperfect hearing,
and when it is entirely closed, Deaf-
ness is the result and unless the in-
flammation can be taken out and
this tube restored to its normal con-
dition, hearing will be destroyed for-
ever; nine cases out of tenjare caused
by Catarrh, which is nothingffbut an
inflamed condition of the mucous
We will give One Hundred Dollars
for any case of Deafness (caused by
catarrh) that cannot be cured by

The correspondence of Professor H.
Measure Attracting Much
Attention Over State.
The Bill Provides That Any Employe
Who Goes on a Strike Is Subject
to a Fine Not Less Than $10
Nor More Than $50.
Harrisburg. —Every street car com-
pany employe, every railroad employe,
every water company employe and the
employes of every other public serv
ice corporation will be forbidden to
strike or to leave their work as the
result of a labor dispute if a bill in
the state legislature, introduced by
Representative James E. Dickinson,
becomes a law.
The measure is a sister bill to the
public utilities bill and is designed to
prevent strikes and lzbor disturbances
among the employes of public service
companies and the bill may be
brought out on the floopepf the house
and passed at the sami@ time as the
public utility bill. For that reason it
is now lying in the judiciary general
committee, but its supporters are
ready to bring it to the floor of the
house at the opportune time.
The bill in effect provides for a
board of conciliation or arbitration
to be appointed by the public service
commission. This commission is given
the right to appoint a registrar of
boards of conciliation and investiga-
Stringent Penalties.
The bill provides stringent penal-
ties for any street car company :em-
ploye or the employe of any other
public service company like a railroad
or water company, gas, electric com-
pany or any other corporation who
goes on a strike before the board to
be appointed has passed on the mer-
its of the controversy.
If such employe does go on strike,
or if any one abets him to go on
strike or encourages him to g0 on
strike there is a swife and adequate
punishment for him.
Section 56 of the act provides: “It
shall be unlawful for any employer
to declare or cause a lockout or for
any employe to go on strike on ac-
count of any dispute prior to or dur-
ing a reference of such dispute to a
board of conciliation and investigation
under the provisions of this act, pro-
vided that nothing in this act shall
prohibit the suspension or discontinu-
ance of any industry or of the work-
ing of any person therein for any
cause not constituting a lockout or
strike.” i !
In section 59, the act says: “Any
employe who goes on strike contrary
to the provisions of this act shall be
liable to a fine of not less than ten
dollars nor more than fifty dollars for
each day or part of a day that such
employe is on strike.”
If a strike leader tries to lead the
men into a strike or if any official of
a labor organization advises his men
to strike hs is taken care of even
more severely. Section 60 declares:
“Any person who incites, encourages
or aids in any manner any employer
to declare or continue a lockout or
any employe to go or continue on
strike contrary to the provisions of
this act shall be guilty of a misde-
meanor and is liable to a fine of not
less than fifty dollars nor more than
one thousand dollars.”
Hunter's License Bill Wins Out.
Harrisburg. — After a struggle as
stubbornly fought as though millions
of dollars were involved, the house
reconsidered the vote by which the
hunters’ license bill failed for lack
of a constitutional majority last week,
and then finally passed the bill by a
vote of 112 to 77. Last week the
measure, which has had a big lobby |
of sportsmen here all winter, mus-
tered only 101 votes, or three less
than the constitutional requirement.
On its face, the bill seems simple
and inoffensive, but it has been fought
bitterly by various elements. It mere:
ly provides that each hunter shall
take out an annual license costing $1
and that no boys under 16 years shall
receive a license unless the consent
of their parents accompanies the ap-
plication for permission to carty a
Report Given to Senate. .
Harrisburg,—The senate elections
committee reported to the senate the
envelope system of voting and also
decided upoh party enrollment and
important amendments to the uniform
primary law.
Under the envelope system of vot-
ing, eléctdrs may enter a polling place
and ask for an official ballot and
either take it home to mark it or mdy

their marks upon it. When the voter |
returns to the polling place from his
honie or leaves the booth he will re-
ceive an official efiveloge.
In the matter of party enrollment
each voter in first, second or third
class cities must enroll himself on
registration days with the party
which he intends to support at a pri-
mary election. If he fails to signify

Philadelphia. — Lauri Pihkale, who
| holds the Finnish records in the 200,
| 400 and 800-meter races, has come to
this city to take up a six weeks’ study
of the methods used in training ath-
letes at the University of Pennsylva-
nia. He hopes to get suggestions
which will aid him in training the Fin-
nish team for the Olympic games of
Philadelphia.—Charles F. Warwick,
mayor of Philadelphia from 1895 to
1899, died at his home here after an
illness of several years. He was four
times elected city solicitor of Phila-
delphia and was a brilliant campaign
orator, baving accompanied James G.
Blaine on some of his campaign tours.
Mr. Warwick was 63 years old.
Carlisle.—With unique commence
ment exercises 15 Indians, from near-
ly as many scattered tribes, gradu-
ated from the government Indian
school here. In spite of orations and
essays the aborigines gave demonstra-
tions of practical work taught at the
government school... The exercises
were held in the school gymnasium,
and included among many visitors
were state and federal officials and
several old Indian chiefs, from a num-
ber of western states, a few garbed
in the habiliments of their race.
Norristown.—The 800 employes of
James Lees & Sons of Bridgeport,
who went on strike, demanding an in-
crease of 20 per cent, accepted the
14 per cent increase offered by the
firm and returned to work.
Pottsville.—After a strike at the
Otto colliery, Branchdale, for two
weeks, the miners went back to work.
The trouble was caused by three men
refusing to wear union buttons.
. Hazleton.—Joseph Kosletreick, a sa-
loonkeeper of Hazleton, was fleeced
of $2,000 by three sharks. They
worked a box on him which they guar-
anteed would double any money that
had been placed in it if it were left
absolutely undisturbed for three days.
Koslatreick inmoed at the chance to
make easy money and put $2,000 in
the receptacl When he opened the
box, exp ng to find $4,000, his
money had vanished. So had the three
Carlisle.—In order to secure new in-
dustries for Carlisle an industrial
league has been formed here with
over 150 business men as members.
Enthusiasm has reached such a high
point that already a $25,000 fund for |
the guarantee of labor to a big in- |
dustry that contemplated locating here |
has been raised:
Pittsburg.—Nora Brennan, aged 18,
of Carnegie was arrested in a down-
town departmer: store by city detec-
tives. It is alleged the girl had a sub-
scription book and represented that
she was raising funds fof the Ohio
flood sufferers. At central police sta-
tion the girl is alleged to lave ad-
mitted she was raising money for
the use of her family; that her father
was in poor health and her nine sis-
ters and brothers needed clothing and
food. She had not succeeded in get-
ting any money in the store.
Allen.—While playing in front of
her home Miss Anna Hoover, davgn-
ter of John Hoover, mail carrier, was
‘bitten on the cheek by a dog owned
by John Zell. This is the second child
bitten by the dog in less than a week.
The dog was taken to the woods and
shot. i
Philadelphia.—For a year the United :
States government has wanted a mas- |
ter joiner at the navy yard here. The |
job is still open with no applicants.
The pay was recently raised to $6.50 |
a day, but no one sems to want the |
place. This is much more than many |
of the much-sought-for postmasters’ |
jobs will pay. |
Hazleton.—The United Mine Workers |
of the Hazleton district have been |
notified by their officers to refrain |
from labor April 1 to celebrate the |
anniversary of the granting of the |
eight-hour day in the Pitino |
field. Only those men whose work is |
necessary for the preservation of the |
property of the coal companies are to |
continue at their places. The local!
unions have been advised to hold ral-
lies and discuss questions that are of |
vital interest to the organization.
Easton.—Leading musicians of East- |
ou and Philipsburg gave a sacreud con-
cert in Able Opera house for the
benefit of the flood sufferers.

officials. The commission was prom-
ised the co-operation of this Common-
wealth, and as a result of the confer-
ence Governor Tener will send a spe-
cial message to the assembly strongly
urging the appointment of a commis-

in favor of the appointment of com-
missions to fight the white slave traf-
fic and to improve the conditions of
women and girls.
