THE MOSQUITO EVIL TURNING THE INSECTS TO PROFIT. Employing herds of bats to de stroy mosquitoes is the newest pro ceduro in the campaign against ma laria. It has been put into effect in parts of Toxas by Dr. Charles A. Z. Campbell, who recently com municated an interesting report upon it to the International insti tute of Agriculture in Rome. Br.

Tho idea, which the King has approved, emanated from Mr. Peacock, the' secretary of the • Duchy, and Professor Adshead hna worked it out. Dr. Salceby explained it nt the Royal Institution, remarking that it was the first instance he knew of in which a mechanical thing like n house had been made in some degree capable of meeting the changing size of a family. Two cottages will form a block with six hedroomB, all adjacent be tween them, and the families who occupy them will be no picked that while one with childten approaching the age when they will leave home will tend to grow smaller, the other will be a family which has barely be gan to grow. As the one family i dwindles, it can give its unused bed room, or bedrooms, to its neigh bours. This will be effected by mov able partitions in each bedroom.
