THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: APRIL 2G, 1914.
5 A 1 I I t TIME NOW T0 SWAT FLIES Sure Ways of Getting Rid of tho Summer Pests. SMASH 'EM AND BURN 'EM Btrasnrc of Health Conservation of Surpnsslntr Importance Need of Clcnnllness In Viirdn. In a few day now the observer may expect to sco a pair of files gunning themselvos on tho window pane. Ho may see sevoral pairs. In fact; but If he sees only one pair It Is up to him to swat them without delay, scire their carcasses and Incinerate them In the nearest flame. In case ho falls In this duty to civiliza tion nobody knows what might happen. T be sure, the chances are that most of tho progeny of a single pair of flies will die before the end of summer; but If no dciith Intervenes, if nil the descendants of that original pair could llvo and should be compressed Into a solid mass early next October, they would occupy a space of more than 14.000.0d0.000 cubic feet, mak ing a fly pile as large as tho Woolworth building. This Is not mere guesswork. It Is the serious statement put forth by a sub committee of the Merchants' association of New York, the chairman of which Is Edward Hatch, Jr., who further says that If all the progeny of a single fe male fly during a. single Reason should live and could bo gathered together they would make a road 1.000 miles wide and three miles deep, running all the way from the earth to the sun a distance of some 92,000.000 miles. Mr. Hatch says this, furthermore, without getting tho least excited. He has it all figured out so as to be proved by any adding ma chine that can handlo tho numbers. Ho himself reels off trillions, quadrillions, QUtntllllons, sextllllons, eeptllllons and even octillions regarding files with less effort than the average person would have In stepping on board a subway express. SUe of the Fly l'nmlly. It Is rather disconcerting to talk with Mr. Hatch about the housefly. "I presume you know," he remarked, "that If all the progeny of a single fe male fly could be captured ut the end of this coming summer and rolled Into a ball without being compressed they would make a sphere larger by far than the earth we live on. Figure It our for yourself. Suppose each fly occupies a space one-quarter of an Inch long, one quarter Inch wide and one-quarter Inch thick; then thero would be sixty-four flics to a cubic inch, 300.000 to a cubic foot or 16,277,791.171.084,000 flics to a cubic mile" "And how many cubic miles would the progeny of a singfc fly U f rolled to gether In a ball?' "About 400,40J,300000 cubic miles," Mr. Hatch replied, "or two spheres each tho size of this earth." "Which -would mean how many de scendants of that original mother fly at the end of one reason?" "That's easy," said Mr. Hatch. "A fly usually lays in one season six batches of eggs and from 120 to 150 In each batch. Between the first of June and the middle of October her descendants, if they all lived, would, number 6.677.037.493.864,320.000, 000.000.000 or translating figures into words, six octillions, five hundred and seventy-seven septllllons, eighty-seven Bextllllons; four hundred and ninety-five qulntllllons, eight hundred and sixty-four quadrillions, three hundred and twenty trillions. "A subcommittee of the Merchant .as sociation." Mr. Hatch continued without even stopping to take breath, "Is sending out a hundred thousand or more large cards of warning. These are being mailed as fast as possible to health boards, libra ries, schools and civic associations all over the country In the unceasing war against flics that is being waged. "So much work has been done in past years that people generally are prepared to destroy flies when they appear in large, numbers at the first burst of really warm weather. But this is not enough. The time to begin fighting this most danger ous foe of mankind is right now, when the earliest stragglers are beginning to appear. Kill them now, before they begin to propagate, and we will be saved enor mous expense and much disease later on." The warning Issued by the Merchants' association committee says that files cost the United States 1350,000,000 each year. Mr. Hatch was asked about this allega tion "It's true," he declared. "Careful ex amination of government statistics was made some little time ago by an author ity competent to deal with the subject, and he found that by causing disease and death flies cost this country t500.000.000 annually this largely In lessened earning power of the population and expenses In cident to Illness, such as typhoid fever and tuberculosis "In order to be'conservatlve we reduced the amount to $325,000,000. Our object Is to arouse the public so thoroughly to the danger of permitting files to live and breed that communities everywhere will wage war upon them In extermination. This can be done; it has been largely done In some places." Various agencies for the prevention ot disease are already starting an early campaign against the fly. The Associa tion for Improving the Condition of the Poor, through Its bureau of public health and hygiene. Is publishing a report mado by Dr. Donald B. Armstrong of tests made regarding the transmission of dis ease by files. Although the transmission of many dlecases has, of recent years, been ascribed to the fly. Dr. Armstrong Is Inclined to eliminate a majority of them as negligible, and due to causes other than flies. However, he adds, two dis eases remain concerning which the evi dence against the houso fly seems to be Incriminating typhoid fever and the diarrheal diseases of Infancy. "in the matter of typhoid fever," he. adds. "Dr. Terry, health officers of Jack sonville, Fla., has greatly reduced the death rato by cleansing vacant lots. In Richmond. Va., Dr. Levy has greatly j reduced Bummer diarrhea among Infants by proper methods of screening, the city blocks In which the children were thus protected from flies showing a marked and blear-cut decrease In morbidity and mortality when compared with surround ing olty blocks not thus protected."

Indianapolis News, TELEPHONING ACROSS SEA l.nnK Way from Trnnaatlnntlc Service, Klthcr by Cnhle or by Wireless. Dr. J. A. Flomlng, F. It. 8., described In u lcoture delivered In I-undon the In tentions which of late years have ren dered possible a great Increase In the distance of telephonic communication and have permitted the use of submarine tel ephone cables over distances previously Impracticable. Ho explained that In the case of a telephone wire the shorter the wavo length tho greater the velocity with which the waves travel, while the ampli tude ot tho shorter waves attenuates to a greater extent than that of the, longer ones. Hence when, as a result of speak ing to a telephone transmitter, a com plex electromotive force Is applied to the end of a cable the various simple har monic waves Into whleh the Impulse may be resolved travel along tho cable with unequal speed' and attenuation. The short waves travel fastest, but are worn out soonest; hence tne wave form Is dis torted. A remedy for this distortion of articu late sounds was first suggested by Oliver Hcavlslde, who showed mathematically twenty-five years ago how waves of all lengths could be made to travel at the same Bpeed and attenuato at the same rate. An Important advance was made by Prof. Pupln of Columbia college, New York, In 1893 and 1900, when he proved that Heavlslde's suggestion can be put Into practical form by loading the cable cores, Inserted at equal intervals, but so close that at leaBt eight or nine colls are Included In the distance of one wave length of the average wave frequency, which Is always taken at S00. If the colls aro placed farther apart relatively to the wave-length they do more harm than good. Aerial lines underground ca bles and submarine cables can all be treated this way. Tho longest aerial loaded line Is that from New York to Denver, 2,000 miles, which permits good speech between those nlaces and It Is the ambition of the American Telephone and Telegraph com pany to complete a loaded line that win render speech possible between New York City and San Francisco, over 3,000 miles. A line 2.082 kilometers long has Just been completed between Berlin and Rome; It runs overhead except through the oimp lon tunnel, with loading colls at every ten kilometers and good speech is possible over the whole dUtancc. In England the longest loaded lines are two trunk lines from London to Leeds, 200 .miles, ine general post office has now In operation 50,000 miles of aerial and underground loaded circuits and 45.645 miles are In course of belnr loaded. As regards loaded submarine cables the general postofflce has three one to France, twenty-ono nautical miles long; one to Belgium, forty-eight miles'; and one to Ireland; sixty-four miles, A fourth which Is now being manufactured, Is to be laid from Suffolk to the nearest polnln Holland, 125 miles. Broadly, loading has rendered It possible to double or more than double the. distance of effective telephonic inter course. In regard to wireless telephony Dr. Fleming said the arrangements are closely Similar to those employed In wireless teleg raphy, but in the base of the antenna, or coupled to it, must be placed a micro phone by means of which tho speaker's voice makes changes In the resistance of the antenna circuit, the result being to vary the amplitude ot the waves emitted without altering their, wave length. The difficulty Is to obtain a microphone that will carry large high-frequency currents. By the aid of an Ingenious liquid micro phone Prof. Vannl of Home, has trans mitted speech for 1,000 kilometers, Fessen den In the United States has telephoned a few hundred miles, and Poulsen In Den mark, Colin and Jeance in France, Qold schmldt in Germany, and Dltcham In Eng land have covered greater or less dis tances. Mr. Marconi recently r carried out demonstrations with wireless tele phony for the Italian navy. The lecturer concluded by remarking that we are yet a. long way from telephony across the At lantic whether with cables or by wire less, but progress will continue to be made, and it is possible that some day speech transmission from England to San Fran cisco, with one repetition at New York City, may be an accomplished fact Bos-' ton Transcript. MOVING PICTURE OF FUTURE Fate AnnitliiK Slerr Stan When Women Monopolise Police Foree. Kisses of the Slurried.

"My wife," said the husband, respond ing tp the charge, "is wrong to complain, gentlemen.

A cl lar door In a back alley opened Very slowly and a face appeared looking- up and down the street. The owner ot the face, having satisfied himself that no one was near, emerged. Bedraggled In appearance, weak arvt vacillating, the creature moved cautiously down the street. ' Suddenly a hand was laid upon his shoulder. "Ah! at last." The police woman's whistle sounded. "We have been looking nil over for you. Wo knew you would have to come out In time." Two other woman policemen appeared upon the scene. The crowd began to gather. The miserable creatures, his teeth chat tering with fear, was led forward to a closed yard. The word had been passed around, and In a few minutes the street was filled. They took him to the city hall. They entered the courtroom. The judge removed her eyeglass as she gazed down upon the prisoner. "Well, prisoner, you know the decree. Nothing bo useless as you are can be per mitted to exist In our highly organized society. The prisoner looked around at the sea of suffragette forces suroundlng htm. He saw no hope. The Judge rapped for order. "We bear you no Ill-will," said the judge. "How would you like to pass away?" "Any way that suits you. Tour honor- ess." The judge nodded to the police woman. "Takes him off to the chloroformery." And then, amid the subdue mumur of the mildly Interested throng, the last man on earth was led out to his postponed fate. Ufe.

A gray-haired man of prosperous ap pearance rapped timidly upon a door on the third floor ot the house at 87 South Fourth street, In Williamsburg. Brooklyn, Monday morning. His mahner was that of one who seemed to dread the outcome of what was about to happen. The door. opened. Confronting tho man was a woman of about his age, gray haired too. Wonderlngly, she stood as he walked In, wiping her hands nervously upon her apron. For a moment or two he struggled for speech, then he regained self-control. "Mary!" he cried, holding out both hands to the woman, "Don't you know me? Don't you know tyour husband? They told me you were dckl. I've huntftd all over the world for you and Just found you were living." The woman's face was as gray as her hair. For a moment she stood as one dazed. Then she threw herself Into his arms and called his name as her hus band. The door closed upon them, while neigh bors ran to spread the tidings through the house. FolIotYcd Oamnn Pasha. More than thirty-five years ago Alfred Welland, then a prosperous British real dent of Cairo, .Egypt, become Involved In Egypto-Turklsh politics. He waa Intimate with Osman Pasha, the Turkish general, and enlisted In the Turkish army at the outbreak of the Turko-Russian war, Os man made h'un an officer and he' marched away with his command after saying good-bye to his young wife and their In fant son, named for his father. At various times letters from the front reached the wife who stayed In Cairo, telling of her husband's continued safety and of a further promotion. Then for a long period no news came. In 1877 the rumor swept through Egypt that a terrible battle had been fought at Plevna and that thousands had been killed and wounded. Official despatches confirmed this and the list of the dead contained the name of Captain Alfred Welland. The wife was broken hearted. She was fa rly well-to-do and had no causa to worry on that account, but the Ipsa of I her huthand made her very 111 for a learned that he hod been bured In an unnamed grave. After a year Mrs. W.elland sold her home In Cairo and with her young son left the country. She went first to Aus tralia, travelled there for a whllo and finally came to the United States, set tling In New York. Her son grew up and soma, years ago he married and went to live In Boston, where business called him. His mother continued to make her home here and for some time lias had an apart ment In Williamsburg. She had for years been firm In the belief that her hus band was dead and had given up the search, for information about him. In a nanslan I'rlfton. The scene now changes to Cairo. Two years after the battle of Plevna there came falterlngly back t that city a worn, emaciated veteran of the War. It was Alfred Wellnnd, whd had been left for dead upon the battlefield and had fallen a prisoner to the enemy. When tho Turkish relief corps went over tho scene later they found a body that, though mutilated by shot, was Identified as that of Welland. So his name passed from the rolls, The war ended and the Russian prisons gave up their captives. Among them was Welland, Slowly he made his way to his home. It was In strangers' hands. His wlfo and child had disappeared. Friends told him they hart gone to Australia. He followed and heard finally that they had gone to America. Again he took up the search, but in this country It was In vain. He was told that a woman and a boy answering to the de scription he gave had died In a fever epidemic. Two years ago he came back to New York on business. Then his hopes were revived at a report that a Mrs. Welland was living here. But search failed to re veal her and he returned to Montreal. Ten days ago he received from friends Information that they believed they had really found, ht wife. He came to New York and went to the address .the friends had given him, It was his wife who opened the door to him. She too had remained faithful to his memory and never married.

MISERIES OFJWXED MARRIAGE .Pathetic Fate of New Unaland Girl Who Slurried Chinese Student. There died recently In Tientsin, China, Dorothy Dorr Kwan, an American girl, whose life waa made very miserable by her marriage, by the Rev. Henry H. Kelsey, on Christmas day, 1909, in Hart ford, Conn., to Julian Kwan, a Chinese, and a student In the Yale law school, Her home had been In Morlden and New Haven. The girl was then but 16 years of age. The couple went to China soon after the ceremony, when Mrs. Kwan learned for the first time that her husband had been previously married to a Chinese woman. The father of the young man Is a Chinese business man ot prominence In Shanghai. A suit for bigamy was In stituted by the first wife and Julian Kwan was sentenced to eighty days' im prisonment, which he Is now serving. Meanwhile, the American wife, great as was the shock and humiliation, played her part bravely. A child had been born to her and died. She determined to wait until Kwan's term of Imprisonment ex pired, and then to give him a stated pe riod In which to "show himself a man" before marrying him again. But death Intervened. A long letter from her, writ ten shortly before her death, Is sad read ing. Extracts follow: "Perhaps you do not know that I was only 16 years old when I came to China. I had not a single friend here, and when I learned that my husband had a wife the shock was very great. When we came to Shanghai we lived In a miserable way the couple of months be fore I left. We had not ever rlcklsha money to go to parks, where wo might get some fresh ulr, as our home faced the west and was like an oven all day. I have never been happy one sin gle day of my life In China, and my lot has been made doubly hard by my mother's Rttltude. In the last year I have received only three letters from her. No one else' at home knew of my dis grace as mother did not wish to make it public. I have always kept as much to myself as possible, and my best friends are the missionaries. The 1 received from lilm (her husband's father) went toward making a home in 1911, and mostly In gambling. We have never been happy together how could we? I am not yet M, and I have passed through such ages of ml'ery since coming, to China that T have aged considerably, and at times it really think my mind wanders." it would seem If Intelligent Amerl. cans should by this time understand that Chinese young men of IS or more years of ate are almost always married. AVhn a Chinese boy rtachtn maturity, the , family and kinsmen make It urgent busi ness to get him married, usually a wife having long before been designated. The custom Is giving way before tho. Impact of modern Ideas, especially in Christian homes, but at the. present time tho r.ule admits of but few exceptions. Moreover, Chinese, youth In the United 'States pot yet married usually are "engaged";, the families concerned have pledged jthem selves, and tho American girl who comes to China as a "proper wife" In such a caso will find prejudice, bitterness and complications awaiting her that must wreck her happiness. The American girl who Insists on marrying a Chinese 'youth should be persuaded, If possible, to visit China and Investigate the family condi tions before proceeding in the very un certain business. Especially should clergymen who desire tho respect of their fellows refrain from opening the door to misery and a lonely death In a foreign land by refusing to perform the marriage ceremony between strange Chinese men and unknown American girls of 16.-New York Independent, EYE STRAIN OF THE "MOVIES" Metllcnl Authority Discusses the Unnirer nml Snnueiti Remedies. The Injurious effect on the eyes of the swiftly moving Images of the cinemato graph has been frequently discussed. It has been shown that a number of dis orders of tha eyes ore caused by this form of entertainment. In Massachu setts a flve-mlnute Intermission Is re quired between reels so as to lessen the eye strain One of the factors In cinematograph exhibitions which favors tho development of eye fatigue Is poor deflnlt'on of the original negatives. This Is greatly accentuated when the posi tives which are used are enormously magnified, Tha smaller the Image In the eye, tho longer the, Impression lasts and the more the eyes are tired, ax that seats nearer the screen are less desirable than inosa more remote. There is less eye fatigue when sitting not closer than forty feet from the screen. That the "movies" am a prolific ourc of eye .strain must have been recognized by many occullsts, yet, with few .excep tions, tha attention of the public haa not been dlrectod to this Important fact, while the Victims themselves seldom sus pect the cause of their trouble, although, many of them puffer from an Increase of symptoms even while witnessing the pictures. The symptoms usually consist of headache, vertigo, nausea and fatiguo of tho eyes, followed later b; vomiting, sleeplessness and lack of energy. Physi cians and public health officials have only recently realized the important part the picture theaters play in the welfare of tha community from a health stand- p6tnt.' Many theater buildings are re modeled storerooms with' no facilities fdr ventilation.
