Gnats





In the mountains of Pennsylvania the most troublesome insects I found

were the tiny gnats that persist in flying into one's eyes in a very

exasperating fashion. They swarm in a cloud in front of your face as you

walk and make constant dashes at your eyes, although to reach their goal

brings instant death.



It is not much trouble to get one of these gnats out of your eye when it

once gets in. All that is necessary is to take the eyelashes of the

upper eyelid between your thumb and first finger, and draw the upper

eyelid down _over_ the under eyelid. The under eyelashes sweep the upper

lid clear, and the rush of tears that comes to the eye washes the insect

out.
