crawling iinto the openings of an animals body for the purpose of laying its eggs With any considerable number of the insects tho animal is driven wad and tears furiously about until at luuttth it

gummy does not come elf for several days uud oue or two applications suffice for the short time which the gnat plaguo continues It will not be long before the goat will make iris appearance in
