OUR INSECT ENEMIES.
Whole Nations Have Been Weakened
by These Perilous Foes.
Our Instinct to kill insects Is per
fectly sound. Out of the 250,000 spe
cees now known to science a mere
handful are even remotely helpful to
man, and most of these only by their
power of living upon other and more
dangerous Insects. On the other hand,
thousands of species are actively hos
tile to mlan, to his food plants and to
his domestlc aniimals.
Whole tribes have been swept out
of existence by the attack of insects
carrying bacilli-as within the last two
decndes in central Africa, by the
dread "sleeping sickness" cnrripd by
the tsetse fly. Whole nations have
been weakened anid crippled and whole
clvilizations retarded by another Insect
borne disease, mairin.
Indeed. recent investigators have ad
vnneed the theory that the historic de
cline of both Gi reece and Itome was
lIargely due to the rn 'ages of this dis
ease, brought into Europe by armies
returning from wars in Asia and Af
rica. It may yet come. when we see
(lhngs In their true perspective, that
the warriors of civilized notions will
turn from slaughtering one another to
1attling against our insect etianmies.
