Now and then some fly, with'
effort of his ' niuw les and of Ins will,
would actually tear binipelf from the
flypaer and tsoap;.
Others could not get away, but made
a heroic struggle. They walked across
the paper, dragging their heavy legs
and sticky wingn, climbing up on the
i bod.es of the other flies in search of nome
means of escape.
The man watched the flies, theirdiffer-
ent kind, of efforts, (heir d liferent ways
of dying, the long struggles of some, th
quick submission ()f others. It was a
grewsoni'i but interesting spectacle.
What interested him most was the
stupidity of the Hies, and the fact that
not one of I hem seemed lo learn any thing
from l be fate of scores of others stretch
ed dead on the sticky surface.
"It is evident," said the man, "that
these flies have absolutely no capacity
for thinking or for estimating conse
quences. 'Eicli flv ns'he approaches the paper
must see that there are scores of flies ly
ing (b ud on it. Each of these flies, as he
goes back and forth near this deathtrap
must see the other flies struggling, see
i heir useless elforts. hear their terrified
buzzing -yet each fly in hi turn runs
the risk, and tempted by the sweet,
si u ky substance, goes to death in his.
T suppose that each foolish fly thinks
that ho will esrvpe. (he fate of the others.
Each one imagines that be can alight on
the paper and get off again. Perhaps
each has noticed rhe occasional fly that
gets on the flypaper and does escape
"What, fools these flies are. What a
fool each one of them is not, to say to
h'mself fha' what, has ruined so many
flies will surely ruin him. Why do they
not get out "f ihis room, if they can. or
at least keep as faraway from the fly
paper as possible?"

The Mn Who Wtched Fly-Trp.
Tins is a true story J not an accumula
tion of pseiido facts.
A man bad spread out. a sheet of fly
caper, lie noticed that from day to day
1 he number of f mall black sp,.( ks incteas
ed, eiicn speck tvl hi. g the story of the
ft "s ' rag le end.
One ilas , out of idle curiosity, he fell
to Miidying the flies as their doom over
took them.
One It , camo to the edge of the paper,
lastej the treacherous, sticky preparat
ion, then went away for the lime Ixring.
Another fly did the Kitlie thing, but
waded boldly in and was soon C-ugJit
Another fly, flying- down straight from
ulsive, landed it, the middle of the fly
par. His pleasant bo.z ol lint icipnl ion
soon changt'd lo a loud singing noise that
fold ol helpless rage and lear.
As I lie flies In lob d on the paer each
acted in a (h Heienl way.
Some heat their w ings f ratitK ally for
a h. cotid or l wo, only to lull ovtr on
Ihrir sales vi rj mhui tind sin a iimb to the
mu ky poison.
Others khowid more intelligence, nnd
when they realized the danger, stood on
lh"irtity bs. nd a voi ii g to Un.w
tbtiiiklvs up mill lis kVtey,
Having thus mused philosophically
the man net on his hat and went out,
bnving the flies arid their foolishness to
take care of themselves.
The man turned to the right, then
tnrned lo the left, then went, through a
doorway, and then he was on the fly-
p'ier that catches human beings
He was in a drinking saloon and be
had a glnss of whiskey in front of him.
At this point we will study Ibis man
in 'he saloi n s be studied the flies on
the flypaper in his bedroom. What hap-
p r-s to the man in the saloon?
Exactly that which happened to the
flips on (be f vpn per.
One man goes near the edge of the
whiskey habit, takes a little and poes
a way hke the fly first mentioned, who
approached ihe edge of thu flypaper.
This human fly who takes a lit! la and
goes iiw;iy is almost i-ure to come back
again in time.
Other nien who approach the whiskey
flvpaper taken little and promptly wade
right in to their doo.i.
The human victims that slight on the
w! iskey flypaper hiire ns many ways of
struggling, as many ways of dying, es
many ways of suffering nnd as few
chances of escsping as the ignorant flies
that alight on the sticky flypaper in the
hot kitchen.
Of hnmsti liies on the whiskey fly
paper, some M rujfgle feebly for a while
against the habit that has caught them
and soon succumb.
Others last for a long while. Only the
ends of their feet touch the flypaper.
They keep their bodies erect, and for the
time U-irie; feel quite proud of themselves
and call themselves "moderatedrilikers."
But their feet nre on the flvpaper, and
with nine out of ten of them il is only
question of time when the body and
mmd will sink lo the level of the feet
and that will be the end of Ihe struggle
An occasional human being; escapes
from Ihe whiskey fl paper and, gxies
away to tell others that "whiskey never
hurl him."
This human fly does the most barm.
He sends others to whiskey, and sooner
or l.ner he is pretty sure to (jo lj"'-'a
time himself.
