Having a problem with ants? The following information may prove helpful in getting rid of them: To destroy ant hills, make a mixture of two ounces of soft soap. One pound of common potash and one quart and one half-pint of warm water. Boil for half an hour, stirring occasionally. Let the mixture cool slightly and with a pointed stick make holes in the area infested by ants, keep it safely away from plants that may be affected by the hot liquid. Fill the holes with the mixture. That should end your ant problem. Good luck, I hope it works.

Thank you to all of our military personnel and their families for the freedom we enjoy as American citizens.
