Miss Hawthorne Leaves Bequest for
r \ f School.?Work on the Roads.
* Greenville, Sept. 4.?Miss Lillie
Hawthorne, who died at her home
in Hampton avenue Monday night,
designated a considerable portion of
her property to be used in the education
of poor girls. Miss Hawthorne
(in her will made bequests to a numt
ber of her relatives and then nameu
J the pastor, clerk and deacons of the
First Baptist church as trustees of
the remainder of her property, this
property to be used in the education I
of poor girls. The property left for |
such purpose includes her late home !
on the corner of Hampton avenue and
Hudson street and some $4,000 or
$5,000 in investments. The house arid
lot is a valuable piece of property, its
worth running well into the thousands.
The trustees of the estate will
be custodians of the revenue derived
from this property and from other
P property also, using it as designated
K in her will.
f Miss Hawthorne has for many years
been a devoted member of the First j
Baptist church and ever has been in-:
terested in education.
I During the past eight months $54,I
000 of Greenville's annual appropriation
of $70,000 for roads has been
spent. A great deal of work has been
IW done in Greenville county with this
W money, and there yet remains much
r to be done. Several of the mainly
L traveled roads have been widened to
a uniform width and substantial con[
crete bridges have been erected
throughout the county, in addition
to a number of modern steel structures.

How the Town of Redlands, in Cali*
Bfe . fornia, Succeeded in Ridding ItHf
self of Flies.
I? Redlands, California, is not a big
place, says the Christian Herald, but
it has recently attained wide fame
as the only "flyless" town in the UnitIed
States. A worth while distinction
for any place, big or small, when we i
remember the millions and millions I
of disease-breeding flies turned loose \
& every summer to piague man auu i
W beast. About a year ago the fly
question was reached in Redlands. It i
W was high time. The weather was hot
I and the town seemed to swarm with j
I these insects. The mayor of that i
city recently remarked: "That swat
the fl'es?" the mayor was asked,
is absolutely nothing to it. We don't
do it in our town, and we have made
l Redlands the most unhealthy burg
jp ' in the land for a fly to try to live in."
W "Well, what do you do to get rid of j
the flies?" the mayor aws asked.
"Go out in the streets of our town
and see for yourself, and hunt up
I Chapman, our official flv-catcher. He
is the only one in the world, I think,
and he has made good. Hear what
B he has to say about flies," was the
This advice was taken. At the first
! 6treet corner was noticed a -curious
Lf object, which proved, on close inW
spection, to be a screened frame,
twelve inches square and over two
feet high, about the size of a big waste
basket. It was a fly "cage " The bot+/vnn
C5Q+ ahrmt txen inches from the
tvm ou.b mvvuv w?. w ? _
ground. In this bottom was a coneshaped
screen, with the large opening
down. Under this was placed a
banana peel or other fly delicacy. Inrvestigation
demonstrated that the
pests go ander the screen, and the
light, being above, fly up into the
cone and thence through the small
hole into the cage. Naturally, it
("would take a rather smart fly to find
that little hole and get out. Flies
instinctively fly up and towards the
light So that the cage, with no efY
fort whatever, catches flies by the
It is so complete that the duties of
municipal fly-catcher consists
J simply in daily baiting the traps, col'
lecting the flies and burning them.
According to the report he filed at the
end of'his first month in office, September,
1912, he killed 3,750,000 flies.
? Hp "had emntied fiftv gallons of flies
Ifrom 100 traps scattered through the
business porticn of Redlands, and he
estimated that there were 75,000 flies
to a gallon. At this rate of destruction
it is no wonder Redlands soon
became a flyless town.
At present over five hundred fly
traps are distributed over the little
city. They are to be seen in every
place?in front of the municipal building,
the postoffice, the railroad stations,
many of the big shops and
W, along the highways, but recently the
daily task of the official fly-catcher
has been light.
It was in .Tuly r> year ago that Mr.
Chapman built his first "fly-catcher"
F and began experimenting. He found
that if the trap could be shaded so
that the light would show higher
through the cone more flies would enter
the cone. He also found that the
traps on the shady side of the street
would always catch, more flies than !
those on the sunny side.
It was quickly discovered, in conversation
with Redlands fly-catcher, |
that he has made study of the j
psychology of flies. He knows how, ,
when and where they breed, how
much damage they do and how necessary
it is to the health of any com- j
munity to get rid of the pests.
"Everyone knows," he said, "the j
real danger of the housefly. It has !
been spread broadcast until there is |
scarcely an intelligent community but j
contains people known how the fly can.
carry all sort of foul disease germs,
how typhoid, tuberculosis and many
other dread diseases?even infantile
paralysis?can be spread by flies.
"It probably seems to almost every
householder that winter kills off all
the flies; even a month of cold weather
seems sufficient for this; but if you
will investigate in the early spring,
you will be amazed to find many flies
about your home. Look in your cellar
and you will doubtless find these
flies patiently dozing away around the i
hot air pipes, in corners of the ceil- j
ing, inthe rafters and crevices, around |
the kindling piles, behind barrels and |
boxes stored away, and in many such
"In the early April days, or in the
South, as early as the first of March,
the female fly that so cleverly tucked
herself away in some warm nook of
your house will begin to awake from
her long sleep, flutter her wings, shiver
a fr ,v shivers and then fare forth
"This female fly has from 120 to 200
eggs which she wants to deposit, and
which she will deposit. If there is
no stable at hand, she will deposit
those eggs in the garbage pan, or
even in the earth of your rubber plant!
or ferns or palms. She will find some!
place to deposit these eggs?any place!
where there is exposed organic material.
''Xow, if the weather is fairly warm,
every female fly that was hatched i
from the 200 eggs deposited by our,
first fly (the one that passed through
thp. wintpr sleenine") will begin to de- |
^ w' ~ :
posit eggs at the end of ten days.
"This little fly that first deposited
eggs the first of April will have been
responsible for descendants *by the
first of next September that will
amount to ten raised to the thirteenth
power, or more than one hundred
thousand million! If one fly can do i
this, what can a house full of flies j
"The remedy is to begin in the early
spring and fight the flies. Search

! "Working on the basis that the best:
way was not to swat, so generally ad- j
Ivocated, but to capture in large'
| quantities, I devised the fly-catcher, j
How successful they have been, only |
Rortianris knows. They have kept the
dwellings, and even the meat mar-;
I kets, grocery stores and fruit shops |
almost entirely free of flies, and each
day thousands and thousands of the
pest are caught in the traps.
"The most important thing in the !
use of the fly trap is the bait. Bread j
I and milk is the best, and should be;
i frequently renewed. It should always j
be fresh and never allowed to dry j
up, -for it then loses its attractiveness, j
