A little heed' now lo'tncle Jim Wilson's
official thought on mosquito bite and you
may save yourself many ; an , itch and a
lot of unnecessary scratching In the Imme
diate future. Th secretary f agriculture
haa Just Issued a bulletin telling how not
only to "doctor the bites, but .explaining In
detail how to catch a tnosq;tifto jon the bed
room ceiling at th very first Jab.
Incredible a this latter" statement may
seem Oven tr th ' beat of bedroom aero
Imts, Secretary Wilson certifies that It
his been don in several' part of th
United State. Tb feat as' accomplished
under Secretary Wilson's dlcertiona, I not
however' entirety .devoid of excitement.
There 1 a chance of dropping a, little kero
sene ojl'into your upturned face.
"A home-mads apparatus" is, necessary
for this ' improved bedroom campaign
against th "skseter." As described In tb
department bulletin It consist of a tin cup
of tin can cover nailed to the nd of a long
tick In such a way. that, a spoonful of
kerosene can bo placed in th cup.
"The cup," say the bulletin, "may then
by mean of th stick be pressed up to
th gelling so as to enclose on mosquito
after another." ;.
A soQn as th mosquito perceives that
ha la. cauxht under tha ouo ho bee mea
n&nicslfcken and file right dew, into
th kerosene. It is an interesting; pay etio
logical -fact that the human hand.,' appa
ratus has no such effect upon mosquitoes
of any variety, for ther are many well
authenticated -lnstancea where . they hav
been enclosed' In th hand and -Instead of
beating about trixdly' far an opening, hav
lurked quietly . In a. finger crevice with
vary- -evidence ot self-possession and
sanity. "
Secretary, Wilson, however, has great
faith in tha tin can macnod.
"By It" he says, "perhaps th majority
of 1 mosquitoes In a,, given bedroom cer
tainly all or those resting on tho oelllng
can bo caught befor one goes to bod."
Some objections havo been heard to this
method because of. Its lnexpertness, but
It Is understood that none of tho fault
finders his yet tried ttfe tin cup and kero
sene method on sidewall or lac curtain
mosquitoes. j
Secretary Wilson also suggested a mos
quito trap after a model Invented by H. I
Maxwell Leroy of Indiana. Till trap I
a fpot long, a foot wide and nine Inane
deep, lined . with dark 1 green . balsa nnd
having a hinge door.' aJ small hole, to be
covered when deaired by a revolving piece
of wood or metal, ia cut in th top ot th
box. This trap l designed to tak ad
vantage of th mosquito' desire for a nioa
cool resting placa after a hard night's
work. Th agricultural bulletin tell how
to set this trap;' ' . .
"Owing to th habit of mosquito," it
says, "to eek a cool shady place in which
to rest, such a; a dark comer of th room
or a bookshelf or something of that sort,
they will enter tho trap, which I put In
th part of tho room moat frquented by
mosquito, all other dark plaoeo being rea
der ed uninhabitable aa far as possible
They gre driven out of bookshelves with 'a
duster or tobacco moko and got Into a de
sirable sleeping place for the day. The
door is then closed 'and faatened and Into
th mal hoi at . th top of th hog a
teaspoonful or' lea of benslno Is then In
troduced. .TW kill th mosquito Inside
and tha box i ' thoroughly aired and re
placed." ...
Secretary Wilson say 'Mr1. ' Lefroy has
been vary successful in catching mosquitoes
In this way. He has averaged aa many as
eighty-three a day.
Ur." L. O. Howard,' th department's chief '
entomologist, who .prepared the pamphlet
for Secretary' Wilson, ' says tha best mix
ture he ever found' to' prevent mosquito
bites - waa mad of . oil ot cltronella, one
ounce; spirits of camphor, one ounce, and
oil of cedar, half an ounce.
"Ordinarily," aaya tho official bulletin,
"a few drop on a bath towel hung over
the headf of th bed will keep the common
house mosquitoes away. Whey they are
very abundant and persistent a few drops
rubbed on th fao and hands' will auffic.
Th government officials . acknowledge,
.however, that even thia .mixture won't be
good for all night and that If ou want a
real- sleep. -you" will t havo. to get up and
dose yourself again just befor dawn.

ceesfully a notable series of prosecution
against half a dosen of tha big railroad

his appointment by President Roosevelt
early In M08. After he bad twice con
victed tho New York Central befor a Jury,
th Hock Island, the , Bt. Paul and th
Central Vermont all pleaded guilty and
the Ureat Northern, which held out, met
th same fat as th New York Central
In a Jury trial,
Ther followed in cloe succession th
prosecution . of various paper combina

against the American Sugar Refining com

against th trust Itself, as well as against
Charles B, Hleka,, Ua treasurer; th u

and th atory of progress revealed 1
heartening. A full analytical account ' 1
given,-' too, of all the fatal accidents of
which th detail ar known, and with
no disposition to minimis th risk, th
author and th other airmen who col
laborate with him express confidence 'that
th cause of accident ar In considerable
part removable and that th aeroplane
will som day be made a safer carriage
than th automobile. Even at present tb
risk of flying I not ao great as 1 com
monly supposed from th numerous acci
dents recorded. In th first place most of
the accidents damage tha machln with
out Injuring th aeronaut, the elastio struc
ture serving to break th fall. . In th
second place, the proportion of accident
to flight la. smaller than Is Imagined, be
cause It Is not generally realised how
many airmen there' are at work. In thl
book (ketches ar given of som TOO, but
tha total - number runs well above 1,000,
some placing tho figure as high aa 1,000. '
In a little more than two years, from
September 17, 1908, to February 9, 1911,
there wer thirty-four aeroplane fatalities.
In tho year 1910 ninety people were killed
and ' eighty injured while mountaineering,
and the number ot real climber ' fa not
greater than the number of aviators. Even
In crude figures, then, flying seems to bo
safer than mountain climbing, but this is
only a part of the truth. For the work in
aviation dona during this time' was experi
mental, both a to the building and th
operation of th machine. A large part
of the accident may. be traced to cause
which have already . been removed, whl I
others, sure of a sort .which careful training
would, go far to obviate.. Of the thirty-four
fatal accidents studied, tho causes gstghd
are: Breakage, 11; loss, of control, g;
failure of controlling mechanism, g; . wind
gusts, 4; accidents on ground, 4; fallur of
motor, 1; illneaa of pilot, 2; unknown, L-
Tho list 1 suggestive. At least fifteen
of tho thirty-four accidents were duo to
faults of mscbanlsm, which it is believed
can be remedied. Of tha rest, it is safe
to say that a number wer due to lack of
kill at point upon which th operator of
the futur will' be well coached.- Other
war caused by reckless stunts which hav
no place In legltlmat aeroplanlng at the
present stage of the - art, and therefor
ar no more to be reckoned - against th
aeroplane than a oup race accident I to
be reckoned against th automobile. -When
ail these deduction ar made, th residue
of fatalities, while deplorable,, 1 really

over 1.000 pilots. It. will probably bo long
