SECURED FOR MILLS
1irector Barnes Obtains Three Million
FLOUR TO SELL $11.50 BBL.
Nervousness in Flour Market Sub
sides and Prices Show Dis
New York, May 8.-Julius Barnes,
United States wheat director, an
nounced tonight on his return from
Chicago that he had completed ne
gotiations to bring four million bush
els of Canadian wheat into the Unit
.ed States for distribution to the mills.
These negotiations have been in
progress for several days with the
Canadian authorities, it was said.
Director Barnes announced further
that this quantity of imported wheat
will be sufficient for those milla
which have not provided1 their stocks
up to the new crop. He has reachec
this opinion, he stated, after a sur
vey of the entire mill situation in this
emmntry in which he found that many
mills are stocked with more than
they can possibly grind before the
new crop is harvested.
Reports reaching the graini corpo
ration today indlicated that'the ner
vousness and exc itement heretofore
ruling in the flour market in the Unit
ed( States are being gradually allayed
andl that flour prices have showna
distinct decline in the past week.
Myr. Barnes reiterated tonight that
the grain corporation will sell from
its current stocks andl its curreni
movements through the ports, partie
uilarly Boston, Newv York, Philadel
phia and Baltimore, its standard
gradles of flour at $1 1.50 a bayrol in
ear-load lots to !iona fide0 users, and
that the graini corporation offices at
all these ports have been instructed
to continue to sell on this basis un
til the domestic situation is entirely
A fair reflection of the govern
mnent's fair price re-sale basis for
wheat is shown by the grain corpo
ration's offers to resell and b~y the
prices fixed for such resale, Mr
Moreover, he said, there is no rea
son why all the (domestic grades of
flour should not bear a reasonable re
hation to that basis.

A Little Timely Advice on The Old
Subject of Flies.
More Americans were killed by flies
here at home .last yeear than were

IIIII i I I
slain on the battlefields of France.
Flies sent more human beings into
their graves within the past 12
months than all the wild beasts of
all the wild jungles, mountains and
plains of the world did.
The fly is more dangerous than the
roaring lion, the slinking tiger, the
coiling snake or the crouching wild
cat, because it is easier to avoid the
lion, tiger, snake or wildcat.
The fly has killed more people than
all the criminal murderers of all
nations and all time.
The fly is never harmless and is al
Flies kill more human beings than
earthquakes, tornadoes, floods, fires,
Flies kill more people each year
than are drowned that year in all
the lakes, rivers, ponds and oceans
["lies are more deadly than rattle
snakes, more to be dreaded than man
eating sharks, and more to be feared
than the Gila monster or the trantula.
Here's some expert testimony on
the subiect of flies:
"In La habits the fly is probably
the most objectionable insect with
which man come~*s in contact," says
Dr. Ernest A. Sweet ot the United
States Public 'Health Service, who
"The fly not only breeds in filth,
but it continue's to frequent objee
tionable material thro'ughout the days
of its existence, leaving only to in
vade the residence of mian, contami
niate his food, and oftentimes to
"Flies may transmit dlisease' in
either of two ways. The first method
is by mechanical transference, where
hy the insect b~ecomies contaminated
with the parasites of micro-organizmia
of dlisease as a consequence of fre
quenting filth and places5 where these
agents abound, thus carrying patho
genic organisms directly to food and
drink partaken of b~y man.
"Milk, which is one of the best
media for the growth of bacteria, may
be colntaminated by flies merely
through the act of feeding.
"The second method of disease
transmission is b~y Inoculation. For
tunately houseflies are of the non
biting variety, and therefore inea
pable of spreading dilsease in this
"Of the diseases which may he
transmittedl by houseflies, the follow
ing are worthy of consideration: Ty
phoid fever, diarrhea and enteritis,
cholera, dysenteery, para-typhoidl fe
verc, intestinal parasitic infections,
sleeping sickness, surra, nagana.
''Another manner in wvhich flies d is
seminate infection is through the
regurgitation or vomiting of food. It
is uinpleasanit to consider that insects
Iwhich have but recently frequented
garbage heaps, c'uspidors and manure
piles may be guests at our tables, but
it is all the more disguating to con
sider that the very material of which
they have partakeni should be subse
muently dis;tributed over &ur own food
and then received into our system.
The numb~er of such vomited spots dle
posited by well-fed flies may be enor
mous, frequently rising to a hundred
or more a day."
One fly killed to day may save the
life of a human being this sumnrer
your life, it may be!
