Yours is a matter for private arrangement, not for public discussion. We cannot afford space for such a trifle.

Can any of the numerous readers of the ' Gardener' give me the most effectual means of destroying Ants from the place here. Our houses, at work, are swarming with them. I tried the guano-water, and poisoning of Peaches with arsenic. They seem to have an instinct of their own. for I found the arsenic untouched. I have tried everything I can possibly think of without success. Our houses are all connected to one boiler, the pipes passing up flues. The Ants passing up these flues, make it a very difficult matter to get them collected together. - W. C.
