over 11,000 schools are located in

statewide movement under tho name
of the Pennsylvania State Sabbath

associations in every one of the sixty-seven
counties. Tho organization
seeks to bring improvement in meth

REMEDY FOR RED HUGS.
To an inquirer who writes the de
partment of health asking how to
rid his house of bed bugs Prof. Sur
face, economic zoologist, to whom
this letter was referred, outlined the
following procedure in his reply:
"I received your letter addressed
to tho state health department and
forwarded to me for reply. I beg
to say that the various means of get
ting rid of bed bugs which you have
tried, are among those which aro
considered least efficient by those
who have had real practical experi
ence. These means are all right for
destroying germs, but when It comes
to crawling bugs, they aro not so
satisfactory. There are two meth
ods of destroying bed bugs.
One is to apply thoroughly alco
holic solution of bichloride of mer
cury or, in other words, corrosive
sublimate. This is not only ex
tremely poisonous, but fatal to
pests. It kills them whenever it
touches them. It can be put Into
an oil can and injected into the
cracks and crevices, if Immediately
after using it the can is emptied and
washed well, rinsed with water, and
then oiled or filed with oil to pre
vent further action of the corrosive
material. You can, of course, not
keep It In a metal oil can for a very
long time, because it will readily
corrode tho metal and eat Its way
through. It can bo kept In a bottle,
and when you wish to use It trans
fer it to a spring bottom oil can, and
inject it where you wish. You need
not bo afraid to uso this material
freely, even though it is rank poison
when taken Internally.
Tho other means, which is certain
to get rid of bed bugs, is to fumi
gate thoroughly with hydrocyanic
acid gas. This deadly gas is made
by dropping potassium cyanide or
so-called prusslc acid into sulfuric
acid and water, in a tightly closed
room, nnd leaving it instantly, so
that tho operator will not breathe it
In the least. It doea not Injure any
fabric, metal, food or other mater
ial, although It will kill living
plants, animals nnd insects of nil
kinds when used at the proper
strength. While it Is safo to uso, it
must bo used with considerablo care,
and for this reason I have prepared
an article entitled household fumi
gation, which is published In one of
tho monthly bulletins of tho division
of zoology which Is sent freo to
household pests. It Is rather expen
sive, but It cleanses tho house com
most absolutely certain method of
getting rid of bed bugs nnd other
household pests. It is rather ex
pensive, but It cleanes tho house com
pletely nnd Is satisfactory. I havo
fumigated several housed, mills,
warehouses, etc., in our experimen
tal work, and know whereof I speak

French theater managers In th"
eighteenth century had worse evils
than picture hats to contend ngninsl.
Mnrie Antoinette, who was short, even
according to French standnrds, set the
fashion of high coiffures nnd ultra
fashionable women prided themselves
on measuring four feet from tholr
chins to the tops of their heads. These
structures took nbout six hours to

were almost ns broad as they wero

Flexibility of English.
English is not only, as Richard .Tcf
fetios assorted, the most expresslvo
nnd flexible of tongues, but also. In
Swinburne's opinion", the most musi
cal, lie proclaimed the lines
Music that Rontllcr on tho spirit lies
Than tired eyelids upon tired eyes
to lie unmntched for melody In nny
language. And few would venture to
contradict such n master of music nnd
tongues. Hut surely French ranks
next on the roll of Inngunges. For
clearness of diction It Is unrivaled,
and, thanks to Its abundance of vow
els (close on one for every consonant)
It flowes rliythralcnlly from the tongue.

Is to German as a bagpipe to an or
