handed to us by Mr. Jaeggi and taken

also acts as a disinfectant. It is
called "Intromit," and is described'
as being a clear colorless fluid, which
is soluable in water, and is sprinkled
on the streets in the ordinary method.
The mixture used in the first applica

the other half "Intromit." In a few
days after the first treatment the
streets are again sprinkled with com
