Henry Gelstone. recently from Florida, says a more severe winter than the last has not been experienced In flfty years, and yet no such damage was done the orunge groves as the northern papers tried to make out. Ilis young grove was actually beneflted by the cold, as it exterminated tlie scule bug, which has been a great pest in inj uring the lea ves of the trees. The carpet bug, an insect iniproperly callcd a moth, aa it belongs to the coleóptera, or beetle family, Is a native of Europe, and is about an eighth of an inch long, black, with white and red marks. It is particularly destructive to carpeta, working in tlie cracks of the floor, it tliere are any, and often cutting strips tho whole length of the carpet. The best remedy, as far as known, is one which bas often been recotnmended for the better known carpet moth. It is to wet a towel, fold it in strips, lay it over the cdge of the carpet on the floor and presa it thoroughly with hot flat-irons. The steam generated destroys the insects every time, and although it is a tlresome and laborious process, it is sure. Then, when the carpet is taken up, fill the crevices and cracks with putty.- Manchester Enterprise.
