for awhile It will dry up and heal over but

i L feHistory and Habits oftheFly
I T HERE are several species of flloa which
I arc commonly found In houses nl
though but one of these should bu
called the house fly proper This Is musca
domestlca which Is a mediumsized gray
Wit fly with Its mouth parts sprend out ut
tho tip for sucking up liquid substances It
brecdrf in manure anti dooryard filth and la
found In nearly till parts of tho world On
account of the conformation of Its mouth
nrts the house lly cannot bite yet no Im
pression Is slnmgcr In thc minds of most
people than that this luuect docs occasionally
bile This Impression is duo to the frequent
occuncnco In houses of another fly called
the stable Ilyv and which while closely ro
HombUng the house fly so closely In fact
an to dccolvo any one but an entomologist
differs from it In the Important particular
that Its mouth parts aro formed for plcrcincj
tho skin It Is perhaps second In point of
abundance to the house fly In most portions
of the stales
Several species of metallic greenish or
bluish Hies ure also occasionally found In
houses ho most abundant of which is the
socalled bluebottle lly This Intact is also
called tho blowlly or jneutfly and breeds
In decaying animal material
In the autumn when fruit appears on
the sideboard many specimens of a small
fntilt fly make their appearance attracted by
the odor of overrlno fruit
All of these species however are greatly
dwarfed In numbers by the common house
fly In 1900 the writer made collections of
the flies in dining rooms in different parts
oC the country and out of a total of 23087
flics 22508 wero the common house 1IYlIlllt
Is 338 per cent of the whole number cap
tured The remainder consisting of lL per
cent of the whole comprised various spcclea
Including those mentioned above
Tho true house fly commonly lays flu
eggs upon horse manure This substance
seems to be its favciite larval food It will
oviposit on cow manure but wo have not
been able to rear it in this substance It
will also breed in human excrement and
I from this habit It becomes very dangerous
to tho health of humnn
beings carrying
aq
J It docs the germs of Intestinal diseases such
as typhoid fever and cholera from excreta to
food supplies It will also lay Its eggs upon
I other decaying etalJle
vegetable and animal ma
terial but of tho flies that Infest duelling
houses both in cities and oil farms a vast
proportion comes from horse manure
Tho Washington observations Indicate that
the larvae molt twice and that thcro arc
thus three distinct larval stages
The periods of development were found
to be about as follows Egg from deposi
tion to hatching onethird of a day hatch
ing of larva to first molt ono day Ilrst to
second moll ono day second molt to pupa
lion three days pupation to issuing of the
adult iWo days total life round approxi
mately ion days There Is thus abundance
of time for the development of twelve or
thirteen generations in the climate of Wash
ington every summer
The number of eggs laid by an Individual
fly Is undoubtedly large averagIng about
120 and the enormous numbers In which tho
Insects occur Is thus plainly accOunted for
especially when wo consider the abundance
and universal occurrence of appropriate lar
val food

Real Value of Fertilizer
I
WHEN a purchaser wisely determines
V V that he will not buy a lowgrade for
lllteer at any price at which It can bo sold
he should exercise care In selecting his sup
plieR from among the brands of standard I
grade and highgrade goods The price per
ton oC the fertilizer is not his first consjd
cratlou A fertilizer at 20 per ton may be
cheaper than one at SIS Tho cost per pound
of tho plant food must bo ascertained
A ton of acid phosphate containing 12 per
cont of available phosphoric acid cOnsists
of 210 pounds of phosphoric acid for which
It Is valued and 1700 pounds of material
for which the purchaser has no special use
If1 this acid phosphate Is bought for 51220
a ton the purchaser pays J1220 for 2ll
pounds of phosphoric acid or 5 cents per
pound
A ton of 1CDO per cent acid phosphate
contains S30 pounds of phosphoric acid
which at 5 cents per pound would make this
grade of phosphate worth 1630 a ton Ons
of these grades on above basis is as cheap
as the other though of course there would
bo less expense In distributing the higher I
grade product 1451 pounds of which con
tains as much phosphoric acid as 2000 j
pounds of the lower grade phosphate i

H value of a good hock of sheep on the
A
farm When everything is taken Into
consideration no other farm live stock re
turns the profit proportionate to thu amount
of work Involved as does a flock of well
bred sheep To secure tho best returns from I
sheep raising It Is not necessary lo keep
them exclusive of all other live stock but a
small flock just whit can ho conveniently
accommodated along with oilier farm anl
inals and given the best cure It Is Indeed
surprising In traveling through tho country
to noto time fow
w flocks of sheep that are
maintained ipon the arias You may pass
farm after farm and observe nil kinds of
live Block with the exception of sheep and
these for KOino unaccountable reason aro
Seldom genii No farmer would think It
piolltablo to operate his business without
horses cows bogus and poultry and ought to
think it no less Important to keep sheep
There arc two vital factors which weigh
heally on the credit side of ohcup raIsing
and HhouUl rcceho thoughtful consideration
of every farmer One of tho most serious
problems confronting thc farmer today IH
time labor question Slcep raising to a large
rneasuro can afford a solution to this dlili
oulty as time amount OL work involved In
ta ring for them lu very small when com
pared with other hinds of live stock growing
Chcii there Is the adantagc that cheep have
over other kinds of live stoCk and that Is
I t
In a similar way the values of fertilizer
containing nitrogen a lid potash In addition
to phosphoric acid may be compared As
suming that the materials supplying tho
three valuable constituents are of approx
ImateTj coual availability these comparisons
ot the money value of the plant food In
arlotis grades of fertiliser can be easily

I In Il7ar Time the Fly Is JMore Destructive Than Bullets t
When the innocentlooking fly crawls leisurely over the eatables during meal
time in summer lttlc account is taken of its ability to kill Born and reared in filth
the lly lives a loathsome existence Direct from thc barn lot and back alleys xvlicrt
disease germs abound he comes merrily Hitting into the house through the back door
with feet laden with disease and deposits the burdcn on the food we cat
to every one and there seems to be little
hope In the near future of much relief by
doing away wllh the breeding places Ay
single stable in which a horse Is kept will
supply house Illos for an extended neighbor
hood People living In agricultural com
munities will probqbly nOr bo rid of the
pest but In cities with better methods of
disposal of garbage and with the lessening
of the number of horses and horse stables
consequent upon electric street railways hi <
cycles and automobiles the time may come
when window screens may be discarded
The prompt gathering of horse manure
which may be variously treated or kept In a
specially prepared receptacle would greatly
abate tfic lly nuisance and city ordinancesht
compelling horse owners to follow some such
course arc desirable Absolute cleanliness
even under existing circumstances will ai1
ways result In 11 diminution of Limo numbers
of the house fly md In fact most house
hold Insects arc less attracted to the prcin
fics of what Is known is the oldfashioned
housekeeper than to those of the other kind
rThc stable of the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture In which about twlvn
horses arc Kept Is situated about 100 yards
behind the main building of the department
nnd about 00 yards from the building in
which time bureau of cnlomology Is ultualod
rTbs stable has always been very carefully
kcpl The rnnnuro was Thoroughly sve p l
ui > every morning carried oiilsido oC thi
stable and deposited in a pile behind Ihe
Vbulldlng This pile after accumulation for
a week or ten days or sometImes twp weeks
was can led off by the gardeners and spread
upon distant portions of the ground At fill
> times In the summer this manure pile
swnrmed with maggots of the house fly It
Is safe to say that on an average many Ihou
sands of perfect fifes Issued from I k every
day and that at least a large sharq of tho
flies which constantly bothored the employes
In the two buildings mentioned camo from
this source 1
In an experiment closet G by 8 feet wan
built In the coiner of tIme stably nearest
time manure pile It had a door opening Into
the stahl proper an l also a window A
door was built In time outside wall of this
closet and time stablemen were directed to
place no more manure outside lliqbuilding
In other words to abolish the outsldo manure
pile and In the future to throw all of tOll
manuro collected each morning Into this i
closet the window of which In the mean
uu
time had been furnished with a vlro screen
rIme preparation were completed by tho
middle of June nnd a barrel of chloride of
lime was put In the corner of the closet
Since that Limo every morning the manure
of tho stable is thrown Into tho closet and a
small Bhovclful of chloride of lime Is scat
tered over It At tho expiration of ten day
01 two weeks the gardeners open the outside
door shovel the manure into a cart and
carry It off to be thrown upon the grounds
Judging from actual examination of the
nantiro pllo the measure is eminently suc
cessful Very few flies are breeding In the
product of the stable which formerly gave
birth to many thousands daily After this
measure had been carried on for two weeks
employes of tho department who had 110
knowlcdgo of tho work that was going on
were asked whether they had noticed any
diminution in the number of files in their
offices Persons In all of the offices on the I
first floor of the two buildings wore asked
this question In every ofllce except ono the
answer was that a marked decrease had been
noticed so that tho work must bo consid
ered to hove been successful
The account of this icmcdlal work has
been given with some detail since it shows
so plainly that care and cleanliness com
bined with such an arrangement as that de I

With the combined effort of the person
owning stables In a given community much
more effective results can undoubtedly be
gained
To the consideration of
these measures We
June not touched upon tho remedies for
house Illes breeding In human excrement
On account of the danger of tho carriage of
typhoid fever the dropping of human excre
ment In the open should be mado a mlsdr
meaner and the samo care should bo taken
to remove or cover up such depositions an
is taken by the removal of tho bodies of
dead animals Tho box
privy is always a
nuisance from many points of view and Is
undoubtedly dangerous as a breeder of flits
which may carry the germs of Intestinal
disease No box privies should bo permitted
to exist unless they arc conducted on the
earthcloset principle With a proper vault
or other receptacle closed except from above
and a free use of line earth the breeding of
houBO files can bo prevented Covering the
surface with lime however is more cer
tain than the use of earth The writer has
seen in a largo camp of volunteer soldlciy
unprotected sinks In which the house fly was I
breeding by tho thousands IIo has also I
seen permanent camps in which time sinks
were so constructed and so treated with

The house fly has a number of natural
enemies The common house de

is a small reddish mite which frequently
