Destroy Disease Carriers.
. During the next few months there
should be war waged on the many in
sects which are such enemies to the
human family. Among the most harm
ful we find the housefly, mosquito and
flea, while others less important are
the stable fly, lice and ticks.
Every insect has four stages in its
life. First the female deposits the eggs,
these are hatched into the larva which
eats and then grows into the pupa
which in turn becomes the adult. It is
very interesting indeed to watch a fly
from the time the eggs are hatched
into the yoong larva uutil they become
adults, but we all realize that though
they are pretty little creatures, they
are the most harmful insects we have.
The Fly and Typhoid.
The fly carries typhoid fever, gener
ally speaking. It loves filth and for
this reason we should begin now to
destroy its breeding places. Flies breed
in the lot or other places where filth
is allowed to accumulate. In the warm
, season of the year the adult female
lays about a hundred eggs in some
filth; in less .than a day these eggs
hatch into larvae or maggots, which
which feed on filth they are in until
they become the pupa, then the adult
fly. In less than ten days the eggs go
through all changes" and become very
harmful insects. The thing then to do
is to destroy their breeding places.
Each week the barnyard lot should be
. cleaned and the rakings put into a fly
proof bin. This will destroy all the
Then, too, the fly can carry consump
tion from one person to another. They
have a pair of legs, each equipped with
two claws and a pair of pads between
them. These, like the legs, are cover
ed with stiff hairs, which-will very
easily pick up anything they touch.
Suppose a consumptive was not careful
and should expectorate upon the side
walk. The fly will crawl over this,
then into some kitchen and over the
food, leaving behind it a trail of the
disease germs to be eaten by some oth
er person. To prove that this is true,
you might take a handful of ^flour to
some filthy place where the flies are
and sprinkle it on them and in less
than a half day you will find some in
your dining room. Great care should
betaken with the body wastes, espe
cially of those who have any conta
But as long as man lives there will
be some flies, so the next thing to do
after you have destroyed their breeding
places is to screen. This will prevent
many flies from getting into the .house
and then if fly paper is used and a
home-made fly killer, they can very
easily be controlled.
Mosquitoes an Enemy.
Mosquitoes are the next worst enemy
to our health, as they carry the much
dreaded disease malaria. Every year
many dollars are spent for the cure of
chills and fever, when with a little pre
caution all this could be avoided. Be
sides the suffering it leaves the body in
' a very weakened condition. Thus the
importance of the old adage, 1 'an ounce
of prevention is worth a pound of
The mosquito breeds in water: old
~. cans may catch enough water from a
single rain to hatch hundreds of mos
quitoes. The eggs are deposited in this
warm water, and in a day the larvae or
wigglers appear. The wiggler contin
ues to eat for dear life until it becomes
a pupa and inside of this the adult mos
quito develops. It then flies up from
the water to bite some person sick of
malaria. These germs are sucked up
through the proboscis and carried into
the stomach, where they cause knots
and multiply greatly. After two weeks
these germs pass into the salivary
glands. The mosquito then injects these
germs into the person it bites and oth
ers have dengue fever.
Pestroy Breeding places.
All breeding places of the mosquito
should be destroyed. Old cans should
have holes punched in them, rain bar
rels and cisterns should be covered.
All necessary pools and standing water
should be covered with a thin film of
oil, as the young larvae and pupa must
have air and this oil will exclude it,
causing their death.
The stable fly was once thought to
carry infantile paralysis, as it can suck
blood. Fleas living on rats which have
plague are said to carry the disease to
others and to people: Ticks are very
harmful to cattle and man. Lice are
other harmful insects, but many pf
them can be found in Texas. They live
in filth, such as a filthy body.
So to prevent suffering we must make
jvar on the insects which carry disease,
and the best way to do this is to de
stroy their breeding places. Now is
the time to get busy. -Farm and Ranch.

YONCE & MOONEY.
By MOLLIE MATHER.
It had taken Tessie a long time to
save twenty-five dollars, and the sum
seemed more than twice this amount
to her. . Twenty-five dollars. Tessie
-thought, should be enough to buy the
finest coat, and she was in need of a
coat. Indeed, the thin little suit
which had been her last year's pur
chase was all insufficient against win
try winds, and neither indoors nor
out did poor Tessie know the luxury
So the girl was now alone in the
world, alone that is,, except for Fred
erick. Frederick hoped to marry her
when his salary should be raised, and
it was especially because of Freder
ick that Tessie longed for the tau coat
with the fur collar. Frederick ad
mired this coat in the store window,
when he and Tessie lingered on their
walks. Fcederick would buy her a
coat like that some day, he said, and
she would "look like a- princess" in it.
. Tessie wished to look like a princess
now, that her lover might be proud of
her: so painstakingly and self-sacri
flclng?.v she saved the twenty-five dol
lars. There was no price tag on the
cloak in the window, and Tessie knew
many discouraging fears, but on the
night of the biting snow storm she
turned resolutely into the store ; she
must have some kind of coat at once,
even if her hope was to be destroyed.
The desired coat had become to her
almost an obsession, she gloried in
dreams of its lining. And when the
radiator in her upper bedroom re
mained as cold as her own hands. Tes
sie would draw the old woolen shawl
about her shoulders and think of that
warm fur collar. She felt strangely
abashed as she entered the carpeted
cloak department in the presence of
the stately modish young woman who
seemed almost pityingly to await her
demands. Tessie's faded little snit
glared out its shabbiness in all that
grandeur of newness. Courageously,
she approached one of the attendant
young women. "I would like," she
said frankly, "to see a tan cloak with
a fur collar, I can only pay twenty
The young woman continued her
work of assorting cloaks;
"We have .nothing like that for
$25.00," she answered brusquely.
"But there was a coat in the win
dow-" Tessie began, she could not
so easily dispose of her hope. With a
shake of her head, the young woman
moved on to a more promising cus
tomer. Then, as Tessie stood hesitat
ing and dejected, a second young wom
an came around the display table. The
dress she wore was black and simply
mada, her soft brown hair waved
naturally over her ears, she had the
same calmly superior manner of the
others, which had inspired Tessie with
uncomfortable awe. But the face of
this young woman who accosted her
with a pleasant question, was pale
and tired. Tessie thought, and her
dark eyes showed sympathetic Inter
est. Quickly Tessie responded to that
Interest. "Perhaps," she suggested,
"you might be abie to find a warm
tan coat for me, with a fur collar
like the one in the window. I can only
pay twenty-five dollars. You see, I
have saved-that much."
"But twenty-five dollars ls a good
deal for a coat, Jsn't it?"
"Sometimes," the pale faced young
woman answered gently; "twenty-five
dollars is a good deal. If you will sit
down for a few moments I will see
about the coat in the window." ,
The sparkles came back again to
Tessie's eyes, the kindly voice was so
reassuring. And presently the young
woman returned with a man bearing
tlie coveted cloak on his arm, and
when the man found that the cloak
fitted perfectly Tessie's slight figure,
he carried it away only long enough
to fold It in a square box, and the
purchase was made for twenty-five!
dollars. As Tessie was lovingly bear
ing her burden toward the elevator
she turned with a sudden impulse
back to the young woman of the sym
pathetic eyes. rf/1.?
.Tm so grateful to you," Tessie
said, "for taking the trouble." The
tiredness of the young woman's face
seemed to vanish in her smile.
"It has beer^ a pleasure to be able
to do it for you," she said. Then as
Tessie went happily on her way to
"look like a princess" for Frederick,
tlie young woman slipped back into a
dressing room strewn with fur trimmed
dresses, and here she regained the
hat which she had left there when
she tried the dresses on, and when
she emerged again out into the cloak
room, a big man gravely faced her.
"And so, Marlon," he said, "this ls
really you whom I meet for the first
time tonight. As you came to the as
sistance of that shabby little creature
I sat waiting for you just behind the
mirror. I had called at your home
and they said* I should find you here.
So I heard all that passed, and realized
that you were playing the part of a
clerk just long enough to give to that
little girl her heart's desire. Dearest,
you must kjiow that I have long
wanted to ask a question, but you
seemed so satisfied in your life of good
fortune, that I wondered if love might
find a pince. Today you have shown
me a heart tender in its love for oth
Tlie young woman laughed as she
slipped her hand through the big man's
"I huye heard." she said, "that a
woman may not always wear her
heart noon her sleeve."
