That the common housefly is re sponsible for maich sickness and ma ny deaths of human beings is now pretty generally known, says Mrs. Lena A. Warner, health specialist, Division of Extension, University of Tennessee. ' " ' It is. a lover of filth. Its eggs are usually deposited in excremen, and on other decaying-animal and vege table matter. A female fly may de posit from 120 to 150 eggs at a time, and may make four deposits, so that a tingle fly is capable or laying ouu eggs, , The maggot grows rapidly and reaches maturity in five to seven days., At the height of the summer season a generation of flies may be produced in twelve to fourteen days. In Tenhessee there are many genera tions in a season. The progeny of a single female ny at the end of the ninth generation may reach the enor mous number of 1.953,000 female flies, to say nothing of all the males produced which also carry disease germs. - ' , . BREEDING PLACES. . The'most dangerous breeding place for flies is in open closets; for in these places the germs of - typhoid fever, dysentery and infantile diarrhea aTe found. Pits of closets should be kept tight and dark so that no flies will enter them; and the contents should be kept covered with ashes or dirt. The pits should be cleaned often and thn contents carefully buried. -House flies carry disease-producing germs.

C. M. Stewart, a sheep grower of Gibson County invested $375 in a flock of sheep in 1916. Since that time he has sold over $250 worth of lambs and wool each year from the flock which is now as large as it was in 1316. He says that his feed bills never run over $25 a year for the flock. N' About three-fourths of an egg is water. If you expect your hens to lay keep plenty of water before them at all times. Do not expect them to drink' from the pond and hog wal low. Early hatched chicks grow faster, beat the -lice and mites out, mature quicker, lay earlier, demand higher prices and make more vigorous breeders. A Eood sire means the beginning of a good herd, say scores of Tennes see breeders who have closed their gates to the bony scrub. They say the scrub is the beginning of the end. Livestock specialists of the Di vision of extension will tell you the same'thing. Crop rotations and diversifications are sound forms of insurance for the Tonnpsaee farmer but a lot of them are like the man who did not believe in it until his buildings burned down. .

Scientist Produces Cold Light.' a Mow Yorker has been getting . . ... i Atfna lnQoH I whpre. 1 riceuiniioviuittLc ijaHT-Six pgP New York. Prof. E. Newton Har vey has found means by which cold light may be obtained, according to an'announcemnt made at Prineeton University. After eight years of ex perimentation on the light given off certain animals, Prof. Harvey has ftroduced a form that gives a continu ous glow by the same natural proc- ess" as that carried on in the beast. Prof. Harvey explained that the continuous glow resulted from the oxidation of luciferin, to form oxy- luciferin,' in the presence of another substance,' lucif erase. It only remains to devise a practical method of in tensifying this light to make it of commercial value. This has been done to a certain degree by the reduc tion of oxyluciferin, on a basis of perpetual motion in a test tube. Prof Harvey will continue his research in the hope of developing a brighter light by this chemical reaction.
