The dissemination through this in sect of the epidemic, infantile paralysis, which last year killed thousands of New York’s children is but one of the many counts in the in dictment against the filthy fly. Infantile paraly sis is peculiarly shocking because it deforms chil dren so cruelly, but in its destruction of life it is far less serious than typhoid fever, which we now know to be largely a fly-borne disease. Simi larly the fly probably causes far more mortality through its .Instrumentality in spreading tubercu losis than as a carrier of infantile paralysis. All over the world scientists are studying the fly, discovering new dangers to public health caused by it and suggesting new methods of ex terminating it. Dr. L. O. Howard, the chief entomologist of the United States government, now suggests that the' name “typhoid fly” should be given to the common house fly, because the latter name fails to suggest the deadly character. Mr. Howard tells how the deadly character of the fly was proved by feeding flies with pure cul tures of the typhoid bacillus. Material from the bodies of the insects and flv-specks made by them were then examined and found to contain the bacilli. This material was injected into animals and proved to be virulent. Flies Carry Typhoid. There were 250,000 cases of typhoid in the Unit ed States last year, and over 35,000 proved fatal. During the Spanish-American war flies which had swarmed over infected matter in the lime-strewn pits walked over the soldiers’ food, leaving traces of lime. Many cases of typhoid occurred, killing far more than bullets. Officers whose tents were screened from flies showed fewer cases. Typhoid disappeared in winter, when flies were no longer about. Infected water was not an important fac tor in these camps, but a majority of cases must have been due to the flies. More than SO per cent of the total deaths in the war were caused by typhoid. The danger of infection is greatly increased by the fact that typhoid germs may remain active in a person's intestines long after he has recovered from fever. Dr. George A. Soper recently discov ered a case of a cook employed by several fami lies in the vicinity of New York. She had recov ered completely from typhoid fever, but she gave the disease to members of every family where she was employed. Four other cases of this kind are mentioned by Doctor Howard. Spread Enteric Fever. During the Boer war 100,000 British soldiers were laid up at one time by enteric fever, now shown to have been spread by flies. Profiting by such lessons, the United States authorities on the Panama canal work against flies, and this, together with the careful screening of houses, adopted primarily as a defense against malaria, reduced typhoid to a negligible quantity. L long series of observations is being conducted, showing that flies play an important part In spreading Asiatic cholera. The British warship Superb, In the Mediterranean, suffered from an epidemic of cholera, which continued while at sea, but on the disappearance of flies it ceased. Pro fessors Tizzoni and Cattani of Italy, In 18S6, found active cholera germs in the deposits of flies caught In the cholera wards at Bologna, Italy. Cost Millions a Year. Doctor Howard says the decrease in the vital assets of our country through typhoid fever In a single year is more than $350,000,000. The typhoid fly is also a disseminator of tuber culosis. Dr. Frederick T. Lord, the Boston scien tist, says: “Flies may ingest tubercular sputum and ex crete tubercle bacilli, the virulence of which may last for at least fifteen days.” Matter from ioberculous patients must, there fore, not be allowed to come in contact with flies, and the patients should be screened for their own good and that of the rest of the community. Drs. W. M. Esten and C. J. Mason of Storrs ex periment station, Connecticut, who counted 550 to 0,000,000 bacteria on flies, observed that these in sects carried contamination from the pigpens to the milk it dairies. Life History of Fly. • “The only remedy for this serious condition of things.” they say, “is to remove the pigpen as far as possible from the dairy and dwelling house. Extreme care should be taken in keeping flies out of the cow stable, milk rooms and dwellings.” Doctor Howard has traced the life history of the fly, finding that 120 eggs are laid by a sin~ie female, and that in Washington in midsummer a generation is produced every ten days. In ex perimenting he found that his flies would breed only In horse waste, but the evidence indicates (hat they breed in various kinds of filth. His con clusion, however, is that the vast majority must come from hoi a stables. As tested out and recommended by the United States department of agriculture, sprinkling and soaking such a p?s* heap with a solution of one half pound of powdered hellebore in ten gallons of water (stirring well and allowing it to stand for 24 hours), will destroy all the maggots, eggs and larvae'which are then present. Almost equally good results, although not quite so certain, can be secured by sprinkling freely with powdered borax and then pouring water o’ver. so as to carry it down all through the mass. The amount of helle bore solution required is about a gallon to the bushel of manure. A recent calculation of the fly’s rate of increase.

WAUSAU PILOT based on Professor Howard’s experiments, has been made and shows that one fly can have be tween June 1 and September 28, 4,353,654,672,000,- 000,000,000 descendants. Prof. S. A. Forbes, state entomologist of Illi nois, found that house flies breed freely in decay ing animal carcasses, a point of significance In connection with war conditions. It is most important to have an efficient flytrap. o.ie known as “the Minnesota flytrap” appears to be the best constructed. It is planned on the principle of having a box with a hole beneath it, a piece of bait under the hole and sufficient space for the fly to walk under the box. The box Is entered through a funnel that* is ‘a decapitated cone. The fly, having gorged himself on the bait, will, according to his invariable habit, fly upward through the funnel and become imprisoned in the box. He will not fly out. Health Officers Rerpnnsible. The courts have passed upon the question of damages for a sufferer from typhoid who could trace his illness to flies feeding upon the filth t>f sewage. A few years ago a man living in German town, Philadelphia, recovered heavy damages from the city for liis illness, which, he proved was caused by a stream flowing through his yard which had been polluted by sewage from a house ten anted by a typhoid patient. The defense relied upon proof that the plaintiff had neither drunk nor bathed in the stream, but an entomologist con vinced the jury that he had contracted the dis ease through the medium of flies, which had car ried the infection from the stream to the food exposed to their visits in his house. Scourge of European War. A horrifying form of the fly peril has been en countered during the present European war. This is the presence of myriads of flies that have bred on the bodies of the dead soldiers and carry septicemia (blood poisoning), and other diseases. Profiting by the experience of the Spanish-Amer ican and Boer wars, the military authorities pro tected the pits in permanent trenches and camps against flies, but thousands of dead bodies are lying in the shell-swept area between opposing trenches, where it is absolutely Impossible to carry out sanitary measures. j IS DEATH PAINFUL? I • • The physical pain of death depends, I suppose, on the particular cause of deat) , says a writer in London Tit Bits. Naturally, death from starvation or cancer must be very much more painful than death from old age/ Dying is probably more pain ful than death itself. At some most painful death beds there seems to come a period of calm when the end draws near. I think it Is a great pity that for the sake of relations a death agony is some time? prolonged by the use of drugs. I remember a doctor saying to me at the death bed of a young officer: “If there were relations here we should keep him alive for a few hours.” Why should a dying man be kept alive for these senti mental reasons? I suppose a great deal of the painfulness of death Is due to our struggling against It. Just as when we resist an anesthetic, it causes us great discom fort, while if we meekly submit to it the sensaiion is delightful, so with death. The reason we resist is that we cling to life. This does not necessarily mean that we ate afraid to die, or that we have doubts about immortality, and want to have as much of this.world as possible for fear there is no other. The greatest struggle for life I ever witnessed was on the pert of a young spiritualist, who most certa n’v believed in the next world. He simply refused to die, and did literally live some days longer because of his de termination. It was rather splendid, this insistence on life, though It probably cost him a lot of pain. On the other hand. I remember a young soldier in France who died from sheer lack of wanting to live. The doctor told me that he need not have died If he had only resolved to live.

French staff map of German railways before Verdun shows that country around German trenches was networked with these lines. The London Lancet announces that the spread of typhus, an eruptive fever quite different from typhoid, has been traced to flies. Typhus has al ways occurred in dirty and starving communities. It has been very prevalent in Russia, and is said to have been largely responsible for stopping the first Russian invasion of Austria, because it kftled and prostrated so many men. The spreading of infantile paralysis virus on the feet and in the gullet of the house fly, as observed by Doctor Flexner of the Rockefeller institute, has already been thoroughly explained. Experiments have also been made indicating that the poison of this disease is conveyed by the bite of the sta ble fly very much as malaria is conveyed by the bite of the mosquito. These experiments are thus described by Dr. C. E. Winslow, an expert on insect pests, of the American Museum of Natural History: Tests With Monkeys. “Prof. M. .T. Rosenau of the Harvard Medical school, succeeded in producing infantile paralysis in six oit of twelve monkeys bitten by stable flies which had been allowed to feed on other monkeys suffering from the disease. “Professor Rosennn’s work has since been con firmed by Doctors Anderson and Frost of the fjnlt ed States public health service. There is, of courfo, no certainty that the disease is always transmitted by the stable fly. The work of Doctor Flexner and of the Swedish observers and the occurrenc. of a certain proportion of cases in cold weather strongly suggest that sometimes infantile paralysis may be spread by direct contact between human beings or in other ways than by fly bites. On the other iiand, it seems certain the biting stable fly is one means by which the disease is conveyed; and the seasonal and geographical prevalence of the epidemics make it seem probable that this is the usual and most important means. “The habits of the stable fly differ widely from those of the house fly. The stable fly i#a biting fly, feeding on the blood of the higher vertebrates. It is found in the vicinity of dwellings, particularly where horses and cattle are kept, but it is apt to remain outdoors in warm, sunny places, and does not come into the house much except at night and before rain.” Another case I remember of a young Tommy who had a long, weary illness from an awful wound. He. too, no doubt, was bound to die, but he, too, lost heart. It was arranged that he should go to Eng land, but lie had ceased to care to do so, and re fused. The end came rapidly after that. 1 think these instances show that much depends on will power. My own father was a man of ex traordinary vitality. A month before his death his doctor said to me: “By all the laws he ought to be dead now.” It was difficult to believe a few hours before his death, at the age of ninety, that he was a dying man. His again was a case of the most absolute belief in the other world, coupled with an intense desire to live and not die a moment too soon. Probably the greatest pain in death is mental pain. I can conceive a wasted life, a stupid life, and. still more, a wicked life, making it very pain ful for a man to die. Early Days of Egypt. Predynastic Egypt consisted of various petty states ranged along the banks of the Nile —this 4,- 000 years before Christ. The Egyptians had al ready mastered the art of making textile fabrics by spinning and weaving, and the men wore kilts and the women long robes. Wonderful pottery was made, though this was done by molding, as the pot ter’s wheel was unknown Gold, stone, ivory and bone were made into ornaments and utensils.

FEVERISH, SICK Look, Mother! If tongue is coated, give “California Syrup of Figs.” Children love this “fruit laxntlve,” and nothing else cleanses the tender stomach, liver and bowels so nicely. A child simply will not stop playing to empty the bowels, and the result is they become tightly clogged with waste, liver gets sluggish, stomach sours, then your little one becomes cross, half-sick, feverish, don’t eat, sleep or net naturally, breath is bad, system full of cold, has sore throat, stomach-ache or diarrhea. Listen, Mother! See If tongue is coated, then give a teaspoonful of “California Syrup of Figc,” and in a f> w hours all the constipated waste, sour bile and undigested food passes out ot ihe sys tem, and you have a well child again. Millions of mothers give “California Syrup of Figs” because it Is perfectly harmless; children love it, and It nev er fails to act on the stomach, liver and bowels.
