reducing the numbers in the house

moved from the room or covered so
that the flics cannot get to them.
Absolute cleanliness indoors and
outdoors will always result in lessen
ing numbers. Abolish the old-fashioned
box .closet and use a modern
form of earth closet or some forrm of
vault that can be kept tightly closed
and readily cleaned when necessary.
Sprinkle daily with chloride of lime
or even fresh earth. Its proper main
tenance will involve a little labor
ami' time, but it will amount to noth
ing as compared with the cost of a
case of typhoid fever or even, com
pared with the worry and trouble tht
flics cause the housewife.
Abolish the outside manure pile.
Let this word go out to every village
mind over all the country side. Keep
the stable manure in a. tight box or
vault, sprinkle daily with .chloride of
lime and remove and scatter often.
Ocan up all decaying refuse in the
yaird, in fact all refuse; burn it or
'otherwise destroy it
Keep flics out of the sick room,
not only because they annoy a sick
person more than a well person, but
on account of their farther-reaching
actilon, their ability to carry disease
germs from the sick room to the oth
er parts of the house and even to
other, houses.

TO TAKE "POT-LUCK."
J
'When we ask some one to our table
to share our mean we show that pcr-
1 son the highest compliment we can
pay. Hospitality can go no further
than a sharing of the most intimate
domestic part of our home into wjiicji,
another can enter, A guest appre-v
ciatesj this Sand 'feelsnt. Does it not
ncfcessarily follow, then, that we
should keep that time honestly rc-

flectfvc of ourselves and of our real
ltvjng? But the moment wc intro
duce: cpmpany manners, company
didshes, wq change from the rtcal to
the unheals it ceases to 'be thevery
thing which we have? asked the friend
tesliajgIeis,no longer dining with
us Jptikwej vith liimjthough-in. our
own house. Can anything be more
incohsistcn; more destrictuve of the
very courtesy wc would show him?
Wc rob the greatest compliment wc
can show a friend of its very essence.
Many a man lias gone to a home filled
with the joy of being asked to dine
with the family, only to have the
whole glow of his pleasure taken
away by sitting down to a meal which
as is always and at once apparent
is not out of the ordinary and has
been "created for him. ' To take "pot
luck;" that is to enjoy true hospitali
ty; aught else is but a sham, and
what is intended as a courtesy be
comes a discourtesy 'because it is not
honest.
THE SANE WOMAN'S CLUB.
If the average woman's club were
carried out along sane lines: along
lines of actual benefit to the commun
ity in which its members live, it would
be a factor for power and for good
which this magazine would be th:
first to applaud. Just fancy, for a
moment, a State Federation of Wom
an's Clubs offering a substantial prize
for the prettiest, best-kept and most
attractive town or village of a cer
tain size within its State bordcrj.
Just calculate the valuable anJ attrac
tive enterprises that such an offer
would .set in motion: what interesting
expeditions, communions and ac
quaintanceships, and all on a sane,
healthy basis, it would develop and
bring about. To make the young
people of our small towns in love
with their surroundings, tan actual
part of their village life, imibucd with
' thespirit to make their homes more
attractive is there a finer spirit, a
higher ambition to cultivate? Of
what value arc papers, copied from
Egyptian art, mediaeval literature
and what-not, compared, to such a
community work that would make the
face ofvthc earth more beautiful and
.the people more content?
