HOW TO TREAT MANURE WITH INSECTICIDES.
   In using hele~bore, prepare by adding one-half pound of the powder to
every
ten gallons of water, then stir and anos it to stand 24 hours. This solution
may then be used as needed. It should be sprinkled over the manure at the
rate of ten gallons to every 8 bushels (10 4ubic feet). Less amounts are
said
to be Ineffective.
   The borax should be applied in a solution using about one and one-half
pounds in 10 gallons of water to each lo bushels of manure. Bo0rax in large
quantities is harmful to plants, therefore manure treated with borw should
be
thinly scattered when applied as fertilizer.
                      SCREEN STABLE WINpOWS
    To keep filies out of the stables put removable screens in the-windows
and
hang burlap on the doors so that it will strike the backs of thestock when
entering.
    To prevent h iles in the house use screens, fly trapso e-y Vaols oy paper

                         ABOUT FLY TRAPS
   Although there are a number of fly traps on the market they are all built
on about the same principle and except for size one is as good as another:
A
simple trap comprising two telescoped cones set on a wooden base slightly
raised and with a hole in the center can be made for home use at a cost of
a
few cents. The two cones should be nearly the sme size at the basf but the

have
    a small hole aFt its tip to let the flies into the tra o

of wire
     tcreening. mael hooks hold the two cones together. The opening at the
top
     Of mhe inside cone is ahout the size of a  lead pencwl. Foor nails are
pertly
     driven into the bottom to serve as leag to raise the trap from the b
