It is pleasing to learn from the depart ment of agriculture that through the di rect efforts of the department the house fly has been barred from 65.000 addi tional farm homes in one year. Indi rectly, no doubt, the accomplishment has been far greater. And every gain made in keeping disease-bearing insects out of human habitations adds to the health, efficiency and longevity of the nation. At the same time it may be observed that such work, as time goes on, becomes lss necessary, because conditions them selves are changing. Flies are still a pest on farms, though by no means so great a pest as they used to be. In cities, except for the most ill-kept districts, they seem to be growing almost neg ligible. Cleanliness itself has much to do with the matter. Everywhere there has been more emphasis on this, since it beeams) known generally that the fly was an in sect flourishing only in a filthy environ ment. But perhaps most of the gain comes automatically from, the automo bile. Horse stables and streets kept unclean by the presence of horses provided ideal conditions for the breeding of houseflies. Not only do motor cars eliminate such encouragement to fly propagation but, by scattering oil everywhere, they wage ac tive jvar on the pest killing the eggs and larvae. This influence, too, is finding its way more and more into the farmyard and thus adding its effect to that of screens in protecting the farmhouse. The use of motor boats is helping, in the same way, to eliminate mosquitoes by the inci dental oiling of water where they breed. Credit these effects among benefits of the gas engines that are seldon recog nized. 'SUBTLE CORRUPTION. It may be a case of professional over emphasis, and yet it is certainly worth thinking about. "Take the jazz out of city dance halls," says Lynn B. Dana, head of the musical institute, "and you've got the city half cleaned up. Take out of your home the jazz records and the 'popular' songs which are written about themes you wouldn't discuss with your children, and you'll have far less reason to worry about the children's morals." Cynics and superficial folk can smile at such arguments, but that doesn't dis pose of them. When all's said and done, perhaps the moral argument against jazz is really stronger than the esthetic argu ment. The two probably hang together, but ugly music doesn't necessarily mean ugly morals. The fact, as psychologists are beginning to see, is that there is a particular form of musical ugliness which by its very nature tends to pervert moral taste along with musical taste. The influences of music are far greater than most persons realize. They work in the mind subtly but powerfully, for good or ill. Physicians have discovered that insanity often may be cured by mu sic of the right sort. Inversely, music of the wrong sort may drive susceptible per sons insane. The moral uplift that comes from fine church music is universally recognized. Why then not recognize as clearly that corrupt music, appealing insidiously to the baser elements of human nature, may induce moral corruption? An observant What Our Children's Children May Live to See and honest person who has studied jazz and its effects on human beings is likely to admit that it has such an effect, and agree with the musical authority quoted. The Padlock society, a world league in which members swear upon an open padlock never to say an unkind thing, true or untrue about anyone, is growing rapidly according to its organizer and promoter. Dr. Armstrong Smith of Eng land. "It is the harmful, thoughtless chatter we want to stop by this locking of lips," says Dr. Smith. But, Oh, how joyless some lives are going to be after this pledge is taken. Win. 31. Wiood, Jr., son of the presi dent of the American Woolen Co., who met his death this week in a motor acci dent while using the highway as a race course, had been in court or before the state authorities eleven times in the past five years for violation of the Massachu setts motor laws. If he had lived in Vermont his life might have been saved for he would have irrevocably lost his license to drive a long time ago. A native of one of the far western states decided recently to see the East. His tribute to this section of his country after an extended tour, although it may have been given a bit grudgingly, was this: "You've got to hand it to 'em. We haven't got quite everything in the West. The East, too, is worth seeing." Reformers should be encouraged by the figures of the census bureau stating that the country's soap production is about five pounds more per person than it was 20 years ago. Cleanliness is next to god liness, and supply is generally regulated by demand. A New Hampshire judge has ruled that it is possible to become intoxicated by massaging the limbs with alcohol, but we doubt- if this method ever becomes very popular in convivial circles. A lot of school children are of course desperately worried for fear lack of coal may close the schools later. The English are taking vast satisfac tion in sitting back and letting the Irish settle the Irish question. Replies to Employers. (Rutland Herald.) The Vermont National guard is en camped near Fort Ethan Allen for its annual school of instruction, which is the real purpose of every muster. As usual, there are some employers of men belonging to the state guard who resent the soldiers leaving their jobs and re sponding to the patriotic call to attend camp and it is a patriotic call. One employer who could not look at the mat ter in the right light wrote a letter to Col. E. W. Gibson, commanding the 172d infantry, demanding that a certain guardsman be released. Th officer's re ply, which is in part as follows, should rhange the view of every person who thinks that be is being imposed upon when a man under pay leaves his estab lishment to report for duty at muster : "The National guard is our chief re liance in the time of trouble. Its services are invaluable, taking care of violence, riots, and racinl difficulties, in affording protection to life and property. It is a definite asset to the business of the community by protection against arson, vandalism, and - destructive agencies, in producing that feeling of security that in sures the pursuits of " employment, the blessings of peace, and a proper respect for the law. It enables a state to prove to the world that it can preserve order within its borders without recourse to outside agencies. Therefore, the relations between employer and the state in main taining the personnel of the National guard should under all circumstances be one of helpful co-operation."

It's a Hard hearted Thief That Isn't Moved by Those Plates. Sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning two ferns disappeared from the table and fern stand in front of the Berkland home at 01 North Lock- . wood. The larger fern was over 1.1 years old and its loss is keenly felt. No one but a real thief would do such an act, and for the thief's benefit the plates will be left standing all summer where the ferns have stood for many, past summers. Austin, 111., Austinite.

George, founder of the George Junior Republic, sails for France t"day to establish a Republic colony at Chavoniac, the former home of General Lafayette, where youthful French war orphans and Russian refugees may be taught the ideals of true Democracy, In The Day's News. William R. George, who sails for r ranee today for the purpose of founding a home and colony for youthful French war orphans and Russian refugees at Chavoniac, the former home of the Mar quis de Lafayette, is best known as the founder of the Georse Junior Republic at Freeville, N. Y. Born and bred in an up-state town of New York, after receiv ing a common school education Mr. (ieorge sought his fortune in New York city, with such success that while yet in middle life he was enabled to retire from business and devote himself to practical philanthropy. Appalled at the largo number endeavoring to live on charity in the metropolis, he conceived the plan of Today's Events j I mil wa t m ' a FARAWAY... .,-,' ' :;, Jinks insists that , being settled doesn't' pay ; like a charger, fierce and mettled, he; would stray ; for the hills are always greener, and the. winds are tsweeter, 'cleaner, "and they dish up better wiener, far away, Life in rrun'eviUe causes wailing, it's so gray ; and the talk is all of baling prairie -hay ;; there are towns. where "lights are glowing, and the better -films are s showingj artd the sports their coins are blowing, far away.
