To Destroy Bed-Bugs

The Gazette
October 10th, 1894

From the Front Page:

Clean the paint of the room thoroughly and set in the center of the room a dish containing four ounces of brimstone. Light it and close the room as tight as possible, stopping the keyhole of the door with paper, to keep the fumes of the brimstone in the room. Let it remain for three or four hours, then open the windows and air thoroughly. The brimstone will be found to have also bleached the paint if it was a yellowish white.
