The presence of warm weather Prop erly calls attention to Infantile paralysis, which Is a summer disease. It used to fie considered . rather Infrequent dib ease,' but has of late been, epidemic In various parts' 'of 'the country, and med loal attention was concentrated last year on the. effort to learn everything possible about the disease and, above all, Its cause and mode of distribution. The affection may be fatal In a com paratively short. Mme. Hs favorite vic tims are children and they may. recover, but they may be sadly crippled for life. Probably no disease In recent years has produced more sadness In families than this. The mode of dissemination of the dts ease has been found, One of its carriers at least is recognized,- and therefore it may be' better guarded against than in the past and eventually, entirely elimi nated. The carrier thus far discovered is the stable fly, the' stomoxys calcitrans, which lives on the blood of animals and par ticularly dwells near stables, but which occasionally invades human dwellings and pites particularly children wno are not able to protect themselves against it This seems to be the reason why Infan tile paralysis only rarely attacks larger children or adults. 1 For some time It has betsn known that the monkey Js subject to infantile paraly sis, and Prof. Rosenau of the Harvard edtcal school took up tho problem of de termining by means of this animal the relation of the fly to the distribution of the disease. Monkeys were Infected with the disease by injection and then allowed to be bitten by stable flies. After an in' terval these files' were allowed to bite other monkeys. Bitten monkeys exhlb Ited the symptoms .of the dis'rase In six cases out of twelve. The stable fly resembles the ordinary housefly in many ways and is Indeed closely related to it, but differs from it in a number of important respects. The adult stable fly feeds exclusively on blood, biting particularly the domestic animals, so that the flies are much more common to the country and are often seen In the neighborhood of utables and barns in cities or towns. It does not often enter human dwellings, but prefero to stay out of doors in good weathar, nut it seeks shelter during storms. It is because of this that there Is a proverb that flies bite 'before .and during a rain storm. The control of the stable fly will prob ably prove quite as dlff cult as that o. the housefly, though with proper care it is probable that Its occurrence can be greatly limited. Until all stables are re moved out of towns and the horseless age has come. It wjll probably be Im poMioie to exclude them entirely from cities and towns. The files begin to de velop early In the spring, and they be come much more abundant after mid summer. They are more hardy than tha nouseny ana persist later In the season. Ordinary flytraps and sticky flypapers will probably not piovf efficacious against mem oecause, as a rule, they live oniy on tne wood of warmblooded animals. They develop mainly In ma nure, uui mucn can oe done to prevent this development by proper treatment of the manure piles and It Is- nrobahl.. that the occurrence of the fly can thus be greaUy lmIted.-New York Independ ent.

The legisla ture Is too much of a hlndranco to tho welfare of the city. Why Bhould tho legislature of this state stipulate the amount of money to be expended by the police department, by the street depart ment and the flro department? It Is absurd. What docs a body of men living hundreds of miles from Omaha know what Is needed here. Tou cannot run the city on such a basis. Your com trtssloners know what Is needed and how much money Is needed to run such and such a department. Qlye the mayor and commissioners absolute power.

Mayor Fitzgerald Is a rapid-fire orator and kept the 600 members of tho Commer cial club all attention during his talk, lie would not permit applause. Ho said he cams here as a representative of the Chamber of Commerce of Boston and he Is a booster of the first water. All he yknew was Boston and Its wonderful strides. lie denied that he was a candi date for the vice presidency In 116 or any other time. He told of the work dope by tho mayor and city commissioners of Boston and said that every cltleen of Boston had an opportunity to mako knownMils needs to the mayor and council, as that body visited every section of the city once each year and sometimes oftener. The council and mayor meets with the vari ous improvement clubs of tho city and hears the needs of Us community. He said the schools of Boston are tha best In tho country and the teachers are the highest paid of any in tho United State. "We spend JS.600,000 annually on our schools," he said, "to educate 1C,000 school children. We hava seventeen high schools and eight night schools, besides numerous commercial schools." In speaking of the parks, boulevards and playgrounds of Boston, ha said that 11,800,000 Is spent annually, as against 1300,004 In St. Louis, which Is as large It not forger than Boston. Ho said that last year 6.000,000 children wore accomo dated In the publlo bath houses. In one pool alone 17,000 children wore accomo dated on a Sunday and all they paid was 1 cent for a t6wel and If they brought their own towel the cost was nothing.
