^^^B)eclaratioit of War?lltinutum to
the Kingdom of Dirt and
i Men and women of South Carolina,
^L>ur executive committee of the State
Rard of health cal's upon all citizens
make April 10th memorable in tibe
Ibals of the warfare on disease and
K in tins State. Last year our rec8HHJp7s
show a large preventable loss of
Wr life from typhoid .fever. Approximately^
ly 8,000 cases with probably at least
800 deaths. We, therefore, declare war
upon the house fly, or as it should be
called, the tvp. oid fly. This fly breeds
only in filth, and by removing filth
from our houses, back wards, streets,
stables cow lots, hog pens, meat markets,
grocery si.;; re.-:, we can prevent
the fly from Caving a place to lay its j
^ Cjggs. wmcn eggs naicn mio mu^uis j
and become full-fledged flies in ten ;
days' time. Let your slogan be,'
CLEAN UP and SCREEN UP. Re-1
member, flies in the dining roomI
means nurses in t-' e sick roo-n. Dr. j
Xesbitt, healtn officer, Wilmington, N.
C., reduced the number of cases of
typhoid fever in iWilmington one-half
by one month's intensive campaign j
organized by him against the fly. In !
organizing your -rorces ior ciean-upday,
do not forget to declare war on!
the mosquito, tor the anopheles mos- j
quito carries malaria and the olber j
varieties of mosquitoes carry insom-!
nia, irritation and aggravation.
How to Organize For tibe War.

Formula For Destroying Flies.
The following formula is a good one
for destroying fly larvae.
i The department of agriculture has ;
* ^ recently issued a bulletin. No. 118, en- j
titled "Experiments in the Destruction
f of Fly Larvae in Horse Manure.''
The bulletin says in part:
"By far t':e most effective, econo- j
miral anH nractieal of the substances j
borax in the commercial .form in
which it is available throughout the
"Borax increases the water-soluble !
nitrogen, ammonia and alkalinity of j
manure, and, apparently, does not per- j
manently injure the bacterial flora."
The directions in the bulletin are os
' follows: ^8J[
"Apply 0.62 pound borax to every j
10 cubic feet (eight bushels) of ma-j
nure immediately upon its removal j
^ from the barn. Apply borax particu- j
larly around the outer edges of the
pile with a flour sifter or any fine
sieve, and sprinkle two or three gallons
of water over toe borax-treated
"The reason for applying the borax |
to the fresh manure immediately after
its removal from the stable is that
the flies lay their eggs on the fresh
manure, and borax, when it comes in
j contact with the eg"s prevents their
* atching. As the maggots congregate
at t e outer edges-of the po>. most
j of the borax s! culd be applied there. [
| The treatment should be repeated with j
cacti addition 01 iresn manure. i
"In addition to the aplication of borax
to horse manure, it may be applied
in t' e same preparation to other ma- ;
nures. as well as to refuse and garbage.
Borax, may also be applied to '
floors and crevices in barns, stables,
markets, etc., as well as t e street
I ere r? n r? chnill^ ha rtflflo'1
| as in the treatment of horse manure.1
; After estimating the proper amount of j
; borax a measure may be used which
| will hold the proper amount, thus
avoiding subsequent weighings."
I The abc e instructions should be ex- I
; p'icitly followed.

About Her Child's Recovery
Is Entirely Reliable.
Palmyra, Pa.?"Three years ago my
little girl had black measles which left
her with a chronic cough and so awfully
thin you could count all her ribs,and she
coughed so much she had no appetite.
" Nothing we gave her seemed to
help her at all until one day Mrs. Neibert
told me how much good Vinol had done !
her little erirl, so I decided to trv it for I
my little one, and it has done her so much ]
good she is hungry all the time, her j
cough is gone, she is stouter and more
healthy in color and this is the first winter
she has been able to play out in the
snow, coasting and snow-balling without
any ill effects.7'?Mrs. Alfred Slack,
We know Yinol will build up your
little ones and make them healthy,
strong and robust, therefore we ask
parents of every fraii and sickly child
in this vicinity to try a bottle of Vinol,
our delicious cod liver and iron tonic
If we can induce you to try a bottle
of Yinol as a body-builder and strengthcreator
for your child, and you do not
find it is all we claim, we will return
your money on demand.
