NWATTEKS FOR SLEEPERS
A gentleman who killed thirty
HOV n ll!eu in March, on a Pullman
car, en route from Jacksonville. Fla.,
lo Chicago, writes to Dr. W. A. Evans,
former health ufll.er of Chicago and
now writer on health subjects for sev
eral newspapers, asking that be sug
gest through his column that Pullman
sleepers each be equipped with a fly
swatter. The wreck ax, says Dr.
Evans, ia needed only at long Inter
vals. A fly swatter is needed every
trip. The fly swatter rack should he
alongside the ax rack.
That trains transport flies and mos
quitoes Frequently and for long dis
tances is known to many people. It
is also true that one of the great dif
ficulties in thc Canal Zone has been
with the mosquitoes brought in by
trains. Cattle trains attract them,
and so do dining-cars. Almost every
train coining into u northern station
from a wanner cllmnte brings in its
fly passengers as well as Its human
ones. Some of these undoubtedly die
of cold before they cun do much dnm
age. But there aro always a few that
find warm cracks to bide in. walting
opportunity to Increase-the Hy popu
lation! If every passenger who sees
q, fly on his train would kill hun. some
of thin trouble would ba avoided.
And. needless to add. If everyone
who secs a Hy anywhere In April
would kill him. much of the country's
disease would dlsappeur.
