done its share in that line. Much
of this also is due the oiling of
streets b1w the county and city
authorities. In former years it
was impossible to have a gool
nights rest on account of tlhe
losqluito pests throughout the
alll Sllllulller months ---up to late
in fall; but, since the oiling )of
stagnating waters and(1 breeding
p)la(ces of the moslquito have been
inaugurated( and especially allso
the oiling of streets, the mosquito
pest. and in fact, all sorts of
a1nio-ilig insects hav1e 1leen driven

impossible for such insects to with-
stand the odor of oil. Inhabitants
along oiled streets in particular,
corroborate this, and they are
relieved of a great annoying insect
burden since the city's streets
have been subjected to occasional
oiling along the carlines, etc., and
the terrible dust nuisance is also
thereby abated and the streets
put in a better trafic condition.
