as big as my fist. I hunt; down and was
lis red as if 1. had been blistered and sso
(ore that I could ha-dly get around. The
toida of my leg seemed to be stiff and
the pain was so bad at limes that It made
me faint.
One of the neighbors told me about
Sloan's Liniment so I got a bottlo and
put some right on. Next morning f could
walk ever so much better and I kept
right on using the T.lnlment night and

The up-to-date mother doesn't wait
for Matter Fly to tickle baby's nose,
for does she not know that a single
fly may be carrying in his mouth and
on his lens more than ltxi.OO of tho
most disgusting bacteria not only ca
pable, but In many cases bound to trans
mit the germs of typhoid or some intest
inal disease to "Baby-Bye."
As for that other oft-quoted bard who
bade the fly "freely welcome to my
cup" he should have taken a view of the
fly's feet before ho wiped them on his
cup and perchance his welcome would
have been less fiee.
Having its origin In filth, It carries
with It the bacteria which breed In
filth and as It moves about crawling
first over refuse then over the food on
tho table, flying from the llp-i of the
cancerous or tuberculosis patient to the
rosy lips of some mother's darling, it
becomes more dangerous to modern so
cletv thnn as though all the wild beasts
from African jungles, were turned loose
In our streets. Infant diseases which
chiefly prevail In the hot season when
files abound, nre due, now say the
scientists, to the flies themselves and not
to the hot weather which we formerly
accused. An English health ofllcer In
giving his experiences In the Journal of
the Royal Sanitary Institute, says the
pollution of mak by the fly Is' respon
sible for the death of many children.
The fly is specially fond of milk and
plants bnetetla In It which breed rapidly.
Milk Is thu Infected not only In the
cl homes where It Is carelessly ex
posed, hut at farms before it is brought
to the cltv. Pinetlcally all dairymen
keep horses nnd usually the horse stables
aie near th cow sheds. In this way the
flies breeding In the stables, fly directly
to the milk. In the crusade which the
I'nited States department of agriculture
Is now waging against the fly In this
country the first recommendation is to
destroy the breeding places. Kerosene
nil or common salt tin own over places
where the fly Is wont to lay her eggs
will help In the extermination. All
stable sweepings should he Immediately
carried away, or confined In a tight re
ceptacle until they can he removed Pour
kerosene Into the drains. Do not allow
! decaying matrlal of any sort to accumu
late on or near your premises. Keep the
garbace nail clean, carefully covered
and scolding dally or sprinkling with
lime or oil Burn or bury as much table
refuse as possible. Keep all food cover
ed and see that your butcher or green
grocer has all his food exposed for sale,
screened. Keep flies awny from the sick,
especially those 111 with any Infectious or
contagious disease. Kill every fly that
strays Into the sick room, remembering
that his body Is covered with disease
germs. Screen all windows and doors,
particularly kitchen and dining room. A
weekly' wiping over the outside of screens
with kerosene keeps flies from settling
there ready for entrance.
Mix together one tahlerpnonf ul cream,
the same nmount of puwdercd black
pepper and a tablespoonf ul brown su
gar. Put in a saucer, darken the room
save one window' and In that set the
saucer contains the mixture,

Fly paper Is good In Its place; but
that Is not afllxed to any one's gar
ments tnsh enough to sit down upon
It, nor yet tl.e cat's back, To safe
guard the fly paper as much as pos
sible, lay when opened on a newspaper
folded In two or three thicknesses to
an Inch larger dimensions thnn the fly
paper all round. Fold tho surplus over
like r frame and fasten down Just at
the ed -e of the sticky portion of the
fly paper. This welghtR it down so that
It does not fly away at every breath of
wind, nnd nt the same time enables one
to handle It without sticking the fingers.
In this shape It may he pinned up
against the wall If desired. If by any
chance, anything that should not, gets
affixed to the fly paper, apply vaseline
freely until Its hold is loosened.
The agile flea Is also under suspicion
of conti Ihuting tn the dissemination of
disease. Immlgrnnls ftom the slums of
European cities frequently bring on
their pertnns, Hay the Immigration of
ficials, (lean that are perfect hot beds
of contagious diseases, Dogs, cats and
rats have rc!i their own particular
hi and of fleas, which they distribute
with catholic Impartiality. The rat flea
Is the purveyor of the frightful bubonic
plague. The fur of the raccoon Is also
said to be a favorite trystlng spot for
fleas, a fact that may militate against
tho Tnft boom In pets. Where a housf
becomes badly Infected with ndult fleas,
It Is a hard matter to dlslodne them, Not
very one can afford to try the Cornell
I'nlverslty method, of engaging: stalwart

the Insects may creep and hide. Shake

floors of the rooms are cleansed. Sweep
the rooms and burn the dust collected

If you have not rooted objections to
a couple of toads domesticated in your
kitchen, you can write tints to roaches
and water bugs. The tends are said to
be cleanly In their habits and not given
to wandering about the houBe. If you
object to them, however, naptha or
kerosene sprayed around the wooden
wor.., shlves, stationary tubs and crev
ices where these hups do congregate,
will dispose of them, as also hot alum
water, one pound dissolved in three pints
boiling water, spraed or applied with
an old paint brush, above all, there must
he scrupulous cleanliness. No uncover
ed food left tn tempt them, no greasy
sinks and "smelly" dish cloths, no wet
cleaning rags tucked away Into corners
and dark places. i
An old Brooklyn housekeeper Is au
thority for tho statement that ants of
any sort can be routed by the free use
of air shaker! lime. Sprinkle freely In
the places they frequent and they will
leave at once. A Missouri remedy for
ants conslts In mixing n little tartar
emetic with an equal quantity of pow
dered sugar. Put In a saucer, moisten
with water to a cream and place where
ants are troublesome. If the water dries
away add more. This Is said to be un
failing. I
Garden ants can be driven away by
sprinkling ashes saturated with coal oil
about their haunts. Another good way
Is to locato their nests, place quick lime
nt the mouth and wash It down with boil
ing hot water.
