As a contribution to our knowledge of these insects, Bulletin No. 159 is written giving the results of the author's individual researches. No attempt is made to draw final conclusions. Indeed, the absence of any knowledge of a microbic or protozoic cause of the disease permits us at present only to surmise that a siniiilium may be the conveyor of the unknown germ. The work of Dr. Garman, while so technical as to be of little immediate practical value to medical men, must be hailed as an
