The annual mooting of the Asso
ciation of Economic Entomologists was
ield nt Columbus , Ohio , Aug. 15-19.
Dr. L. O. Howard of the United States
department of agriculture , under the
title , "A Ilemeily for Qad-PHea , " read
u paper showing that Dr. I. PorchlnsUI ,
an expert entomologist connected with
the Russian government , has discov
ered Unit gad-IllcB , \vlilcli are such an
intolerable Huourga to animals living
oil the Husiilun steppes , are to a certain
oxtetit depondunt on 'he ' existence of
occasional pools of water which they
frequently visit , and from which they
drink. 15y careful experimentation Dr.
Porchlnskl has shown Mint by covering
the surface of such pools with a thin
film of ksrcsene the gad-nies are killed
In enormous numbers , and that large
stretches of country mny be relieved
of the presence of th se tormenting
flies by this means. Dr. Howard
called attention to the fact that ho
had anticipated Porehlnukl's discovery
in the course of his own Initial ex
perlments of the imo of kerosene on
stagnant pools In which mosiiultoes
breed , In 1892 , and also called attention
to a published account In which ho had
shown In that year that the commonest
gad-fly of the locality In which the ex
periments weio made was captuied by
the kerosene film. In many regions of
the United States live stock suffer
Bovorely from these gad-flies or horse-
flloa or deer-flics , as they are Indllfcr-
ontly termed , and the Russian experi
ments are significant and Important

which may bo adopted In many coun
tries , and which will result In a great
reduction of the numbers of these In
Grain nnd drain for Working Hornet.
I have always believed that w
farmora food too much hay to our
horses. Certainly we fed fully twlco as
much as our friends In the city , and
only ubout half as much grain ai
horao owners In the city feed ,
aays J. A. Macdouald , in Coun
try Gentleman. Since Juno 1 , 1
have ben feeding my horses by
a novel method , which I find emi
nently satisfactory. At the end of May ,
this year , I found myself without hay
for my horses , and a largo amount of
work to do. I could procure hay from
some of my neighbors , but of very poor
quality. This kind of hay I did not
Up to this tlmo the grass pasture was
very poor , but along toward Juno It
began to be fair. I therefore decided
to get along without hay , and depend
entirely on pasture and grain. On the
evening of Juno 1 , I turned my work
horses to pasture. In the morning I
took tnorn up and gave thorn n feed oJt
oats and bran , about flvo quarts per
homo. That is all they got for break
fast , la addition to what grass they
had eaten. At noon they wcro fed no
hay , only a feed of oats and bran-
six quarts per animal , and nothing
else. At 4 o'clock , as usual with us ,
wo took them up for tea , watered them ,
and fed them another feed of oats. At
i sundown , when wo knock off work , the
I horses were turned out to pasture.
This has been and Is still the "bill of
fare" for my liorsos grass during the
night and grain ( about a half-bushel 01
oats In three feeds ) during the day
As a result , my horses are doing splen
didly and gaining all the tlmo.
I am greatly pleased with this
method of feeding horses hay or pas
ture during the night and grain during
A ( load Flockumster.
It IB not difficult for a farmer to
train hlmseU' to bo a good shepherd ,
though there are important details that
must be observed in breeding and feed
ing sheep , says Epltomlst. A ilock ol
sheep will not take care ot Itself , at
least not profitably. There is an axiom
that the "eye of the master fattens
the sheep. " The meaning of that la
that the flockmastcr has every animal
constantly under his eye ; he knows at
once tutu , something is wrong , if any
thing la wrong , and immediately pro
ceeds to correct It. If a single animal
I * off Its feed or shows symptoms ol
disease , the shepherd detects It. To
the inexperienced it would seem im
possible for a man to become ac
quainted with each individual inembci
of the tlock , bur each animal ban Ita
charactetlstlcs and they are BufUclently
marled to give It a distinct character
in the eye of the llockmastcr. The
very first thing that must bo assured
'lii the management of a flock Is nulot-
ness of surroundings. The sheep is a
timid animal and Is u bundle of nerves.
An hour of excitement will do mora
harm to the flock than ean well ba
imagined The work of sheep-killing
dogs Is not nearly so damaging In the
slaughter that they do , as It Is In the
excitement that they cause In the
flock. In feeding sheep a variety
ehould be provided , but whatever la
fad must be clean and palatable.

The demand In the I'aclSo Northwest

AN ABYSSINIAN SHRINE.
Una Uoillfitteil to the Virgin Mary In
Mcnuloli'H Dominion ) .
Dr. Koettlltz , who accompanied Mr.
Weld-Blumdell and Lord Lovat In
their recent expedition to Negus Men-
elek's country , made a Journey to Zu-
quala , the famous sacred mountain ,
which , he believes , was never before
vlslsted by an Englishman. His de
scription of the trip Is reprinted from
the London Times. "Mount Zuquala.
the mysterious sacred mountain of
Abysslnlans , Is forty miles from the
capital. It Is 10,000 feet high , and In
the form of a truncated cone. At Its
summit and In the crater Is u remark
able lake 3-1 of a mile long , which 1
a veritable Abyssinian Lourdcs or Pool
of Slloam. It Is the belief of the na
tives that bathing In Its waters will
cure all diseases. Close by are some
iprlngs dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
According to the popular Idea , barren
women need only drink of these foun
tains to lose their sterility. The wa
ters are regarded with the greatest
worship and must on no account bo
employed for cooking or any other
useful purpose. I saw quite a number
of dlseiibud creatmcs round the lake
bhoro crawling about or being carried
on litters. The whole mountain
both sides and the crater Is densely
wooded. The place Is studded every
where with hermits' huts , each ot
which Is Inhabited by holy men , who
live separate lives of extreme auster
ity. Also , hidden away In the for
ests , arp a largo number of churches
I got Into the good graces of the
hermits by somewhat curious means
I was being shown over ono of tha
churches , which are plentifully adorn
ed with cheap colored Illbllcal pic
tures , made In Germany , when a pries
with great awe , diew my attention tea
a gaudy representation of St. Qeorgo
and the dragon. I endeavored to ex
plain that St. George was the British
as well as the Abyssinian patron saint
but the good men were very dubloui
until I hit upon the idea of produclnj
a sovereign. This at once convince !
him of the truth of my statement , and
proved to their complete satisfaction
that I was a Christian of a very high
order. The whole mountain Is curl
ous In the extreme. I was shown entree
tree with three trunks , united at th
case , which is regarded as an emblem
ot the Trinity and is hung wuh human
hair and all sorts of trinkets. Thor
are , too , curious crannies between th
perpendicular rocks , through which it
Is an act of devotion to squeeze one-
Belf. The sides of these apertures are
highly polished and covered with
grease by reason of the lellgloua ac
tivity of diseased pilgrims. " '
