What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

CAMP BELL of San Antonio, Tex-, 1 M is what might be termed a butologist. Several years ago bis olisen atiou of bats as insect de stroyers suggested to liiui that they might l* put to practical Use in de stroying mosquitoes. A series of ex periments convinced him. He is now plauuiug to make, under the uuspietes of the Louisiana authori ties. tests in the mosquito districts of the state similar to those he lias made successfully in the vicinity of Ku.u Au- tonio. Dr. Campbell had a conference with Coveruor Hall of Louisiana ou the subject, and the mosquito commis sion recently created by the Louisiana legislature went to San Antonio to iu- speet the method of operation. The so called day mosquitoes iu the south are known to be noniufectious, while the mosquitoes that tly by niglit carry .malaria and other fever germs. Bats do all their flying by night, and the mosquitoes they feed upon are the ones which breed sickness. I)r. Campbell began bis experiments about five years ago in the Mitchell's lake district, near Sau Antonio, which was infested at that time with hordes of the little Insects. He erected bat roosts nnd stocked them. In a short time the decrease of mosquitoes in that locality began to lie noticeable, and Anally they were eradicated The main but roost is on the shore of the lake, ten miles south of town. The roost is set on four posts about ten feet high The structure itself is about twenty feet high, pyramidal in form, twelve feet square at the base and six feet at the apex The walls are slatted so as to permit the free entrance und exit of the hats The in terior is fitted with wire netting, iu which the unimais hang Dr. Campbell has found that one hat will get away with about 200 mos quitoes in a night. As the roost ac commodates 1,000,000 bats, it means a total of approximately 200,000,ooo urns- qultoes nightly R R AGRICULTURAL The annual show of the Royal Agri cultural society, the oldest organiza tion of the sort in England, will take place at Bristol July 1.

Hie Speedwell, in the bay of Biscay with u signal of ill.-? tress flying The Speedwell had a cargo of coal for Gibraltar 8he was also a n^w craft, this being her third voyage. While lying iu the [towns at anchor at night the crew had been frightened by a moaning iu the foVastle At dark. 011 the night before the Sclmlykill came up, mates and all went away in Hie long-boat and left the cap- lain alone In June. 18dS, I ran away from the Marblehead whaler Josiah Betnis in the port of Fort St. Louis. Island of Mauritius. A week after site had sailed away there came into port a ship called tiie (iolden Horn, owned by an English firm in Bombay. She had touched at a port in Ceylon and was bound for Liverpool, a'nd the crew had forced fbe captain to put lo at St. Louis 00 account of the ship being haunted. Very little of the story leaked out « hen the six of us who had deserter! the whaler shipped aboard of her. The captain and both mates were English, and there were two English sailors in the fo’eastle. Of the thir teen men forward there were five Portuguese. The cook was a negro and the steward an Irishman. Of those arriving in the ship at Port St. Louis only the captain and first mate re mained. Cook, steward and all others were new- hands. Fonr of the Ameri cans were educated young men who had ’‘hipped for a wha ting cruise fa a spirit of adventure. The captain and both mates were above the ordinary, and even the cook was a man of con siderable education who had been driven to sea by hard lack ashore. I tell yon this tveeanse we bad a mys captain, though it wcnild bp strange il he came forward Looking qloser. I saw that he was a total stranger. He was n tall heavy man and had on oil skins, though the night was fine. I l masquerading was not almost a crime on shipboard, I might have thought It the molt or steward dressed up ta plsy a joke l could see the man at the wheel, and (be mate and I looked about and counted tlie men in the watch. Then I advanced upon the stranger, and he backed up ft few feet glided to the port rail and swung him self over and out of sight. I listened for the splash, luq none came. 1 climbed upon the rail, but 110 one iva.s in sight. I w h s still looking and wondering when Mr. Leslie came forward, and wheu he had heard my story lie admitted that it was the ghost that, hud driven the other crew away, The spook had been seen by every man who stood watch from midnight to 2 o’clock, but at no other time. I promised to say nothing to any of the men, and I kept my word, but next night it was seen by the lookout just as I had seen it, and after two or three days more the thing was out. The Portuguese flunked at once and almost threatened mutiny, but the oth ers of us, assisted by the officers, went coolly at work to solve the mystery. Not one of us was a believer er^n in dreams. We stretched ropes across the deck, but the shadow passed to the rail and over just the same. We stretched a net along the rail, but It went through the net as a puff of smoke would. We ffghted the decks, and we even extinguished the binnacle light for a few minutes, but It made no difference, At Cape Town the Portuguese cut sticks, and four English sailors were shipped.
