housefly Is our deadly enemy and wo
ought to kill him off an far an possible
befori wnrm weather comes. To do
this effectually will require the co-operation
of the whole community

No Filth No Flieu!
Flies and filth go together. No filth,
o flies! About tho only good thing
rou can say about tho fly is that his
iresonco should stlmulato you to hunt
ap tho placo where ho was born and
destroy it so that it may breed no
noro of his kind.
Fly swatting mny bo a popular pas
lmo. It litis been tallied about much.
So far, It has proved inoffectivo. Tho
Aoll-meanlng person, applying tho
iwutfer nt overy opportunity, kills one

WE SHOULD ACT NOW!
When the American army went down .
to Cuba to clean thinns un rmlitioallv nnrl s
otherwise after the Spanish-American
war, it found that Havana was one of
the worst yellow-fever pest holes in the
The army surgeons learned that the mosquito was to
blame. They declared war on the mosquito. The weapons
in this war were not swatters. There was but one weapon
sanitation. The city was cleaned with absolute thoroughness. Mosquito-breeding
swamps were drained. Lakes and streams
were covered with oil. Now Havana is one of the world's
most healthful cities. The lesson taught fifteen years ago
has been applied steadily by the Cubans.
In this country the house fly bears about the same
relation to typhoid fever and dysentery that the mosquito
bears to yellow fever in the tropics. Both insects are dan
gerous germ carriers.
This community ought to rid itself of flies. The means
of doing so are the same as those employed in ridding Ha
vana, the Canal Zone, Manila and New Orleans of the tever
mosquito. But the iob will not be nearly so big.

Ono way to control tho lly Is
to catch It In such ti trap uh
Ih shown above. Tho trap may
ho placed near tho garlmgo can,
or tiny other pluco that tho Hies
aro Hiiro to como. A tilmplo
and effective trap may ho mado
ft om u grocery box by substi
tuting wlro netting for tho top
and two sides, cutting u round
hole In the bottom und Inserting
in it a wlro netting cono with
an eighth-inch opening at tho
bottom and a half-Inch opening
tit tho top. Homo article of
food, preferably u IIbIi head,
should bo placed Inutile for bait.
Tho trap must bo elevated sev
eral Inches nhovo tho ground, so
us to give tho llles u eliauco
to entor. When tho trap Is full,
it may bo emptied by shaking
its contents through u small
opening, ordinarily closed by n
sliding door. Tho trap descrlbud
und shown In tho illustrution Is
a particularly effective one, no
it was planned with a view to
tho lly's hnblts. Tho odor of
food lends tho lly to enter tho
trap at tho bottom. Onco Inside
It Is attracted to tho top by tho
light. When It gets out of tho
wire cono It cannot escape Tho
trap has tho additional vlrtuo ot
bolng Inexpensive. It may bo
mado at a cost ot about twonty
conts and about a halt hour's
Cover Manure Box
and Garbage Can
A proper system of manure disposal
is moro Important than all other meas
ures combined as a method of con
trolling tho fly nuisance. A proper
method of garbage collection and dis
posal Is next in importance Tho gar
bage should bo drained, wrapped in
paper and collected in n fly-proof metal
bucket. Tho bucket should bo washed
at intervals with lyo soap and wnter
and then sponged with kerosene in
Tho foregoing ndvlco la from tho fa
mous snnltury authority, Dr. W. A.
Evans of Chicago. In our locnl cam
paign wo should utilize this Informa
tion to tho utmost. It has long been
recognized that swatting tho fly would
novor rid tho community of his wholo
trlbo forever more. Wo havo learned
that wo must mako war on him enrly
iu tho season by getting rid of his
breeding plnces nnd bin natural
sources of food supply filth.
Somo of us nro inclined to grumblo
that campaigning against flics Is
mighty troublcsomo. Woll, tho grum
blers will find it loss troublcsomo to
campaign effectually against files than
to nurse a member of tho family
through a spell of typhoid fever and
much less expensive
Our citizens should call a meeting
by the middle of next week and form an
organization to conduct the spring fly
war. There is no time to be lost. Once
warm weather arrives the flies will mul
tiply faster than we can kill them

leadership of Ilarnnhaa, who had

teaching 1b a commondablo typo of
ovangollflm and whllo tho torm "Chris

Jesus (not of Harnnban and Saul), It
was doubtless first applied In derision,
and It has become the accepted and
glorious title (often abunod or con
fused with Chrlstoudom) of those who
follow our Lord.
II. A Great Commission (13:1-3).
Tho separation which took placo aftor

which it wna tloue na auggcHtcd by tho
text, la iu marked contraat with moat

of thla ministry Ib not necurately atnt
ed, but it Included fiuitlng and prayer
(v. 3) : and it "waa to the Lord." There
aro plenty today who can do "church
work," but fur too few who enn min
ister to the Lord (not to pcoplo) and
who can by fiiHtlng and prayer know
what tho mind or tho Spirit la relative
to any advance stepa needful iu tho

III. A Glorious Conquest (v. 4-12).
(1) Tho Jouruoy (v. 4). It was but
natural for tho leader of thla expedi
tion to direct hla atopa llrat to his
homo (4:36). If our testimony will
not receive a hearing nt home It la not

A LAND PROBLEM AHEAD
(FROM THE PEORIA JOURNAL.)
Tho Nebraska State Journal calls at
tention to thu fact that Undo Satn'a
opening of a 4,000 aero tract In th
North Platte irrigation district for set
tlement practically wltida up tho "froa
land distribution" of the nation. It
"l-'ree or cheap hind has been
the American safety valve. A
population straining for self-bet-torment
has had Ita own remedy
lo go west nnd grow up with tho
country. With tho government
reduced to advertising an opening
of forty-tin co farms, the safoty
valve may be conalilered forever
closed. The expanalvo energy for
merly exerted outward, must here
after work Itself out intensively.
Increasing land speculation, with
rapid rising prices of laud and
proportionately Increasing dissat
isfaction among the landless would
seem Inevitable. The tone of our
politics and the Intensity nf our
social problems cannot but bn vi
tally changed under tho strata of
doallng Internally with a social
pressure which hitherto has had
tho wilderness to vent Itself upon.
" 'Land hunger' will soon becomo a
reality In this rapidly growing country
and the constant pressure of popular
Hon. Increasingly higher than the ratio
of production, Is bound to bring us
face to face with economic probtotns
thnt wo have heretofore considered re
mote. The far-sighted statesman and
publicist must devntu hla thought
earnestly to the consideration of theso
itiestlona If we are to escape tho ex
tremes which curso tho older untlontt
of tho world."
Iu tho above will be found one ot
tho reasons thnt the Canadian Govern
ment la offering I GO acres of laud froa
tn tho actual settler. There Is no
dearth of homesteads of this tilzo, nnd
the land Is of tho highest quality, bo
lng such ns produces yields ot from 30
to GO bushels of wheat per aero, whllo
outs run from fifty to over hundred
bushels per aero. It la not only a mat
tor of free grants, but In Western Can
ada aro also to be had othor lands at
prices ranging from 2 to 30 por
acre, tho dlfforonco In price bolng
largely a matter of location and dis
tance from railway. If ono takes Into
consideration tho scarcity of frea
grant lands In the Unltod Statoa It la
not difficult to understand why then
has boon moat material advances la
the prlco of farm lands.
A few years ago, land that now sella
for two hundrod dollars an acre ra
Iowa, could have beon bought for bbt-enty-flvo
dollars an acre or leu. Tha
Increased prlco Ib warranted by tha
Increased valuo of tho product raised
on theso farms. Tho lands that today
can be had tn Western Canada at tha
low prlcos quoted will In a loss time
than that taken for tho Iowa lands to
Increase, have a proportionate In
crease. In Nebraska tho lands that
sold for Hlxtoon to twenty dollars per
aero seven yoars ago, find a markot at
ono hundred nnd soventy-llvo dollars
an acre, for the same renaon given for
the Increase In Iowa lands. Valuos
In theao two States, as woll as In oth
ers thnt might bo mentioned, show
that Western Canada lands nro going
at a song at their present prices. In
mnny ensea iu Western Cnnnda today,
there are Amorican Bottlers, who real
