A mild winter and spring pre sage the early arrival of our bitterest enemies files in vastly Increased numbers. Immediate, well directed ef forts must be put forth if the threat ening dangers . are to be minimized. The time to fight flies is before they become flies when In the egg or when they are maggots. The problem of elimination of flies is one of elimination of filth. No filth, no flies. Flies breed in filth, play on filth, eat filth and distribute. filth the filthiest kind of filth too. If we do awtiy with the breeding places of flies there will be no flies. Therefore the way to swat flies now Is to clean up the By breeding filth.
