Owing to the very iuclement wetitlier last Thurttduy it was impossible for the volunteers to come out and clean up the town therofore the call is issued again for Kritlny, May 24, 1012 A Plague of Papers. The belief entertained by so many persons thst streets, in addition to fulfilling their ordl nary functions, can properly be used as a waste basket, should be discouraged by every in ?uns possible. Crumpled newspapers, torn letters and tattered wrapers help to make up the unsightly street litter. It is in the power of the indi viduats to do his share in stop? ping the "plague of papers." The careless individual who throws away scraps or sheets of paper and the more careless householder or merchant who sweeps the litter OUt into the gutter should know better. A more general realization of individual responsibility would do much to keep our town clean. Flies Arc Dangerous Had as tilth is, it not the worst thing that Hies carry about. They swarm upon open sewers, drains ami outhouses which receive millions of ?Iis. ease germs which have passed the bodies of sick people. Flies in this way pick up and carry OH their bodies, heads and legs which are covered with Rue hairs -just suited for catching and holding this sort of thing) the germs of typhoid fever, cholera infantum (or the summer diarrhoea of children), tuberculosis and several otbei diseases Dr. L. <Howard. Oliief Entomologist of the United States Department of Agriculture, calls the common house fly the Typhoid Fly, be? cause so many cases of typhoid fever have been caused by his carrying of germs from one sick person to another. These germs are so small that you cannot see them without a microscope, but the fly that is eating from the same plate with you may bo carrying a million of them. Flies kill more people than wild beasts and poisonous snakes. Many id these beasts and snakes never get li chance to kill any human being; hut any one of the millions of Hies found in most of our to a us and cities has a chance, if he comes into a house carrying typhoid germs, of killing a whole family.
