as bom in Delaware county, Indiana, on the 21stday of October, 1847. I enlisted in Co. E., 147th IndianaRegiment, March 5th, 1865. But as that greatest ofmodern wars was near its close, I did not even see the bigend of the last of it. I came to Kansas in 1866, stoppingfor a time in the old Delaware Indian Reserve, southwestof Fort Leavenworth. From among the Delawares Iwent out to northwest Kansas, in 1872, and took up aclaim on the Prairie Dog, in Decatur county. I trapped,and hunted buffalo, until the Indians stole my stock,when I had to quit hunting long enough to get even, anda httle ahead, of the redskins. In summer-time I wouldput in my time improving my homestead; in winter,hunting and trapping. But when Kansas passed herdrastic hunting law, concerning the buffalo-hide hunters,I drifted to the Panhandle of Texas, in 1876 (after takingin the Philadelphia Centennial); for the next three andone-half years you have had a pretty good trail of me.(297) 298 THE BORDER AND THE BUFFALO.

s nearly as possiblethe same in all cages. It will be understood that 10 gallons ofsolution were applied to 8 bushels of manure in all the cage experi-ments mentioned below, unless some other explanation is given.After treatment in this way the doors of the cages were closed andthe flytraps put in place. The cages were examined every day. Theescape of any larva? into the drip pan was noted, and the volumeof the drip water measured and a sample analyzed. A quart sam-ple of manure was removed through the small door at the side ofthe cage after a day or two and the percentage of living and deadmaggots determined. The larval counts of quart samples werevery unsatisfactory so far as indicating the comparative larvicidalvalue of the chemicals, but the results of some of these counts aregiven in the tables. After five to seven days flies began to emerge, and then it was nec-essary to darken the cages with black cloth tacked on the sides, as seen Bui. 118, U. S. Dept. cf Agriculture. Plate I.

Black Books: Episode 1: Cooking the Books

Let go once in a while, you are a loose Lily floating down an amber river

Whenever you’re in a tight spot, try to imagine yourself marooned on a beautiful desert island’.

When you rest, you are a king surveying your estate. Look at the woodland, the peacocks on the lawn. Be the king of your own calm kingdom

If you want to feel calm, eat more raw fruit and vegetables, yoghurt, milk and seeds.

When you’re feeling under pressure, do something different. Roll up your sleeves, or eat an orange.

Be on the look out for things that make you laugh. If you see nothing worth laughing at, pretend you see it, then laugh.

Add a dab of lavender to milk; leave town with an orange, and pretend you’re laughing at it.
