Theoil of pennyroyal will drive these insects off; but a cbcapor'muthod, where tho herd flouristies, is to throw your dogs and ci'.ts into a decoctioo of it once a week. Mow tho herb, and scatter it ia beds of pigs anoe a month. I have seen this done Tor niany years in successióu. Wbero the herb cannot be gut, the oil may be proeured. In tliis case satúrate strings Trith it, aud tie thcm around the necks of dogs and cate ; pour a littlo od the back and about the ears of hogs, whicb you can do while Ihey are feeding without touching them. By repeatint this application overy 12 or 15 dayg, tho fleas trill fleo from your quftdrupeds, to their relief and iiuprovement, aod your relief and comfort in the house. Strings gaturated with the oil of pennyroyal, and tied around the cecks and tails of horses, will drive off lice; the strings should be saturated once a day. - Scientific American. Rev.
