  I cannot help but think what a great means this gasoline treatment
might become if properly applied in the case of the common fish louse or
copepod, which attaches itself to the gills of the brook trout, as many of
you know. If only to destroy the two protruding egg sacs of this eventually
death dealing parasite, that alone would pay well for an occasional gaso-
line bath among affected brook trout. Thousands of brook trout of any
size may be treated in a few gallons of gasoline by holding them in it
with scap nets.
