ThE FLY A MENACE.
The common house fly is responsi
ble for more deaths every year, here
in the United StaU- i, than all the
poisonous reptiles and savage beasts
of Indian or Africa kill in those far
off jungles. The house fly is a car
rier and distributor of disease germs
of many kinds. That is why cam
paign to kill the fly should be given
the greatest encouragement and also
cue of the reasons why the cam
paigns shuulu be started as soon as
the fly begins to reappear in the
Contrary to general belief the true
house fly does not bite, iince its
mouth is constructed for sucking,!
and not for piercing. There are,1
however, truly biting flies which
resemble the house fly n general ap- j
The mouth parts of the house fly
though not constructed ' for biting
are most efficiently equipped for
gathering and disseminating filth
and germs, not to mention its feet,
with their claw like hook.!.
The normal length of life in the
adult fly is not known, but this mat
ters little, since its rapidity of breed
ing is almost beyond belie.'. Through
out the entire warm season a new
generation of housj lliei may come
to its matuiity ;,bout every ten davs
and snce the female lays mare than
a hundred eggs a; i. time, anyone
mathematically incited can figure
for himself the prospective progeny
of a pair of flies spread in early
early spring to set up housekeeping.
Since the house fly breeds almost
entirely in manure, the decrease in
the number of horses, due to the de
velopment of motor propelled ve
hicles, has resulted in the production
of a greatly lessened number of flies,
especially in cities. Flies are still
too numerous however, and unre
mitting efforts to keep down their
numbers arc necessary if the heavy
toll of human insects is to be re
duced to a minimum.
The modern approved method of
killing flies is by the use od the liquid
A crystal clear liquid, which evap
orates quickly after being sprayed
about the room. It leaves no muss
or dirt. It will not stain the finest
fabrics. It is harmless to humans
and animals. It can be purchased
from your retailer in convenient
size bottles. Spray a cloud into the
room. It lingers just long enough j

REV. FATHER McDEVITT,
THE best laid dicHo-reduce
schemes will go astray if the
wrong foods continually present
themselves as the most, convenient
and quickly prepared dishes. Such
temptation must be rigorously thrust
in the background by lcecpin! the
right foods on hand and in prepared
form. Doing this will be a conven
ience, and scrv-nj them so easily be
comes a habit. The sh-lf of cannH
foods may be a bulwark not only
to the woman who would reduce- but
to the woman who watches the scales
with a war)' rvt and keeps down tc
a certn in weir1"
Two of the most important items
cn the non-fatteiiins shelf sre spin
ach and stringless beans. Doth are
extremely good tonic foods, high . in
mineral content and with little or no
carbohydrates. When purchased in
cans, the cooking preliminaries are
done, ::nd thus it is easy to serve
them cftcn. Another excellent vege
table is cabbage, but how the house
wife hates to cook it! Sauerkraut,
vhen boiipht in cans, has no sug
pestion of odor, and its healthfulness
is extolled by Pasteur and Metchini
knfT ! etmce is a good food (or the
non-fatten'n-r diet, but only French
dressing should be used.
