Farther back In tho mountains, on tho western plains, niul among
tho granite hills of New England thousands of youths and maidens
saw and heard the doors of opportunity closing to them as they
sought the school and the college. Dr. Penrsons thrust open and
will forever tho dead hold optu these doors to them. Childless, he
will ever be honored by his forty seleu adopted children his colleges;
and an ever increasing intellectual offspring will cherish his memory

LEAVING WINTER QUARTERS
The flics are leaving their winter quarters. Only a few are in
evidence, and these few nre generally found trying to get through
the window pane, seeking tho light and warmth of the out-doors.
The dark, warm and hidden corner behind the stove, in tho cracks,
or behind tho torn wall paper is no longer necessary for their warmth
nnd comfort. Now while they nro few they are trying to get out. On
the outside where filth is moro plentiful their medium of propaga
tion they will become millions, Then they will be battling nt the
doors to get in.
Ono fly killed now ns it seeks to make its exit means a thousand,
possibly ten thousand, killed a little Inter on. So now is the time to
swat them. And one fly killed now may mean a doctor bill saved, au
epidemic avoided, the postponement of a funeral many funerals. Is
it not worth while?
Hut this is not nil of the fight. If the few Hies get out mid the
stable and the out.houses are cleaned up, if the refuse in the kitchen
is properly screened or disinfected, they will find no place to lay their
eggs flies do not feed their young. The eggs must be deposited iu
filth off of which they live as maggots until they are able to fly, until
they come to the kitchen and dining room for their desert. In
exchange for these delicacies they will leave from their sticky legs
disease germs on the butter, on the bread, on the jelly, or they may
plant tho germ of Tuberculosis in tho pin scrntch on the baby's
dimpled arm or foot.
Then organize the fly killers. It is a religious service, a patri
otic scrvico. Proclaim from the house-tops the doctrine of cleanli
uess. It is a real gospel a gospel of salrution salvation from dis
ease nnd premature death. Orgnuizo iu the towns, get out a search
warrant for tho health officer. If he can be found, have another ap
pointed. Have your town as beautiful, as cleau and as healthful as
any town in America, nnd your home will be included, of course.
It is n problem of back yards and stable yards; of kitchens, of
out-houses nud dark alloys. And the problem is solved by the appli
cation of one delightful word eleanliiieKn.
Derea has had two cleaning up campaigns already this spring
and they have worked wonders, and many other townsf are awake, but
this only shows how much there is to be done. The breeding places
of the flies have hardly been touched. The fight in only beyun.

Berea had made considerable prep

Mr. H. E. Taylor, Purchasing A
gent of tho College, and tho Edi

their train with them. They enjoy
ed their hospitality, marched In their
lines at the various stops and met
and became personally acquainted
with a number of ths representatives.
When tho train reached Berea a
large crowd was present to meet
them, the College band was playing
and a number of representative busi
ness men of tho town, led by tho
band, and a company of tho young
men from tho College, dressed in
their whlto ducks, soon formed In
line to escort them to tho Chapel.
Prof. Scale was marshal of tho oc
