Canary birds.

--Having had much trouble in protecting canary birds from the attacks of the insects that infest them and the cages, I learned the following simple method of destroying these pests, which will no doubt be a useful piece of information to many readers. By placing every night over the cage a white cloth, the insects gather upon it, and in the morning may be seen by carefully examining the cloth. They may thus be soon removed, and then all that is necessary is to thoroughly clean and varnish the cage.
