The following statement was hand- ed the Herald todsy relative to the fight on grasshoppers: Reports are sow coming In from districts where polsoo bos been distributed; for the control of gmiihcppcrs, aid all state that ex- celleofresults; hare been obtained; In It was at first thought thai the poison had not bees very effective becanie resolts'-.weje anticIpaled too quickly! Paris strych- nine, may take tiro or. even three days to kill the grasshoppers which have fed on it; and one cannot there- fore see the benefits ot poisoning im- mediately.- which have taken' poison, however, rarely feed again though they may live for several days. Another circumstance which his led a some disappointment arises from Jie fact that though the grasshoppers Jave obviously in numbers in polsonei] areas very few dead ones can be found.. There are three rea- sons for this: v Living grasshoppers teed readily on dead ones, and a large number of them are carried away by ants. The dead hoppcra are also most numerous''in sheltered places such as old dead grass or among weeds, where the dead hoppers are much less read- ily .seen than the living- oiies; We would again impress upon every- one in-the'-affected area that much money can-be'eaVcd by poisoning the brccdiug places, such as roadsfdes, headlands, piles Imme- diately, before- the hoppers have spread through; the grata fields, and before they have done any appreci- able damage. -IJeUy Is costly, and It i> tfie duty of everyone who has grass- hoppers breeding on his land to poison them before they, spread and become a menace to himself and to his neigh bors Several different poisoned laits csn be used.'
