have enterprise, as shown by the fol- 
lowing froin it local paper. 
  "Tie board of public works have 
had a itirnk slirayyr it work since 
Monday ott the shade trees along the 
city streets in an effort to stop the 
ravages of thie black catterpilhr'which 
is rapidly derirding the cln. trces of 
their leaves. 'iT'e spraying appears 
to be very effective and if the prop- 
erty owners co-i perilte with the city 
officials in this work theiti any t heall- 
tiful elins can be preserved and the 
liability of the return of the pests 
another year materially lessened."
