Benvolio had not answered be

too, that while other Montagues had

making love sonnets.

for a moment, and then made L-3
way smilingly toward the your. 3
man who lay beneath a tres, z 1
sorbed In his own thoughts.
"Good morrow, cousin," he called.
The prone man looked up, startled
from tls reverie. When he saw
who had addressed him, he s: ;hctl.
"Is the day so young?" he mused.
"Sad hours seem long."
Benvolio laughed derisively.
"What sadness lengthens Romeo's
"Not having that which having
makes them short," was the answer.
"In love?" Benvolio queried mock
ingly. "Out " replied his cousin shortly.
"Out of love?" thj oilier teased.
Romeo shook hij head. "Out of
her favour where I am in love."
Benvolio's smile was a taunt. To
think Romeo could brood about
love . . . but who was Bhe?
"Rosaline? ' he guessed.
Romeo nedded sheepishly. "Ro
saline," he sighed.
And for a moment silence hung
"Love," observed the lover, "is a
moke raised with the fume of
sighs; being purged it to a fire
sparkling in lovers eyes; being
vexed, it becomes a sea nourished
with lovers' tears. And what else
is it? A madness most discreet
a choking gall, and," he sighed
again, "a preserving sweet."
He thought back over what he
had said, and with the look of one
well pleased with his own wisdom,
arose. Benvolio urged him to speak
more of this fair Rosaline to whom
he had lost his heart, and led tha
way to a narrow, twisted street
outside the grove.
So intent was Romeo upon hla
nrniaa of Rosaline that he did not
see the serving man walking
toward them. And so absorbed was
the man In a notice he held In his
hand that he was unaware of the

servant blinked in astonishment and
then sheered off apologetically.
Romeo smiled. "Good day,, good

"God give good day," the other

couraged by Romeo's courtesy, he
held out his paper, "I pray sir, can

"I can read my own fortune in

; "But can you read anything you

WAYS TO FIGET MOSQUITOES.
Mosquitoes pass through four
stages: (1) the egg, (2) the larva
(wiggletail), (3) pupa, and (4)
grown-up winged adult. The first,
second, and third arethe water
stages, and here is where'4hfish get
in their work. : There 1 a special
kind of fish that feeds on mosquito
eggs and' larvae. These' are Gam
busia affinis, - or the common top
minnow. Mosquitoes do not breed in
damp grass or wet weeds, or bushes,
but no pool of stagnant water is too
small for them to breed in. The fe
male Anopheles is the malaria mos
quito, but she has to bite a person
who has malaria before she can carry
malaria germs to another person. But
the thing that interests us is how to
avoid all, mosquitoes:
2. Break up breeding places. Get
rid of anything around the place
that will hold a spoonful of water
for as long as a week. If there is
a good reason to have such" water,
cover it over with cloth, wire, or oil.
3. Cut all underbrush ; near the
house where mosquitoes can harbor
during the day. Spray oil on ditch
banks near the house, if such ditches
hold puddles of water.
4. Use a dip cup of oil On flowing
ditches or branches near the house,
suspending a half -gallon' bucket of
crude oil over the ditch so , that a
drop will fall about every half-min
5. If mosquitoes get into the house
close all doors and windows tight
and burn a pound or two of sulphur.
Use a pot to burn u in and set the
pot in a tub of water. Use m spoon
ful of coal oil to start the fire, c
