This material consists of a fine, tv hi te
am! crystalline powder, possessing lit
tle r no odor, and the aqueous solu
tion has rather an agreeable sweetish
taste. An analysis of this powder
shows it to be nothing but commercial
Salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is a pow
erful antiseptic, and owing to its slight
taste, it has been much UBcd for pre
serving Commercial articles of food.

labor, must have exceeded 51,000 each. .
S - The moth which produces this des
tructive caterpillar is a slender lead
colored insect, about 1 inch long.. The
wings have wavv black lines near tbe
tip. The insect IsTather slnggUh and
often remains In one position fur a long
time. This moth can probably be
found active in this state in all months
of the year except January. The eggs
are whitish or pink, and kidney-shaped.
' The eggs are usually laid on outside of
.sacks artdjinthe cracks of bins. They .
hatch in about 20 days. As soon as
hatched the caterpillar make its way
. into the Hour and then spins around
itself a silken tunnel -in whtch it lives
and feeds on the flour. These tunnels
cause the flour to become knotted into
clots which refuse to pass through the
machinery, .rendering the material
worthless,- besides clogging the cloths,
screens and spouts.
Rrueov: The only practicable reme
dy for this pest is to fumigate the en
tire mill and bulldine ia which flour
and manafactured foods are kept with
carbon bisulphide. .
- This substance Is a fluid having a
most disgusting odor. It vaporizes
readily when exposed to the air and in
this condition . is destructive to all
forms of active insect life. To use it,
the room or building to be fumigated
must be closes! as tightly as possible.
All interior doors should be kept open.
Expose the liquid in shallow pans or
saucers and close the building- for
24 to 48 hours. Then open all doors
and windows and allow the gas to
disperse in the air. Care should be ex
ercised to avoid breathing the gas and
,on no account should any fire or tight
be brought into the room or building
whil the peculiar odor can be smelled.
- This subfctance is hifthly explosive and
infiamable. With eare no harm will
follow iU Use. . .When the gas disperses
in the air it leaves no residue behind,
so that no trace of it can be found in
the flour or food. Where only a amall
lot of roods or saeks are infested they
may be placed in an air tirht room, or
bin and .a dish of the liquid plaeed
within near the top. Use about four
fluid ounces of the liquid lor eacn zo
eubicfeet of spaoe, or for grain or
flour in a tight bin use 1 pound of
carbon bisulphide, for each ton.

All roaehes are tnormously fecund,

bread and flour, and foods made of
flour. These pests arc nocturnal in
their habits and hence are apt to es

presence alarmingly patent.
Remedy: Cleanliness where such Is
practical is essential to keepMree of
these insects. In mills and ware

fumigation must be resortedrto, anJ
must be very thoroughly done so that
the vapor of the substance will find its

Sarinarainsis. This ia a narrow browu ,
beetle 1-12 inch long, and scarcely ,
thicker than a sheet of paper. It is a
native, of Asia, as its name betokona. .
It is becoming yearly a greater pest la
the Southern States, and will probably
exceed in mischief even the Calandra
wee vila. The remedy for this is tha
same aa for the others carbon bisul
phide. This Insect is fond of greasy
substances, and if some paper is soaked
.in melted lard and Paris green sprin
kled upon it while moist and the pois
oned sheets distributed on floor and . ...
shelves where grain antl flour is kept,
many of the beetles will be killed; but
this flour will not give satisfaction r
where they are already abundant until
the carbon has killed most of them.
As a matter of suf etyall mills, war
honsea-and stores, where grain, flour,
and food-stuffs are kept, should receive
a thorough annual cleaning, and fumi
gation with carbon bisulphide. This,
if attended to and thoroughly done,
will sava manv thousands of dollar
damage. Itr will be most efficacious if
done about April 1. 1 1 may be repeated
with benefit in July or Angust. Th
best time to fumigate is on Saturdav
evening, having thoroughly closed all
outside doors and ventilators, leav
them until Monday morning. The ut
most care must be takeu that no fir
hall be Ukcn into the building whila
the odor of carbon bisulphide can be - -smelled.
Keglect of this pfecautloa
will almost certainly result in an x-
Slosion and fire. With care there Is no
anger. The odor of this-substance.
though most disgusting, will not in jura
th most -delicate food preparation.
The odor is not poisonous to human be
ings unless" breathed for a long time,
but as little as possible ahould b la-haled.
