Swat the Fly
and Save the
By WOODS HUTCHINSON, M. D.
At this time of year, to paraphrase
Scripture, "A man's flies are they of
his own household," but they soon
i wander forth :n search of a breeding
place to deposit their eggs and even
though your own premises may be
spotlessly clean' and free from dirt
heaps, dust heaps, garbage dumps, or
manure piles, triey -will keep on flying
until they find a place which is filthy
enough to make them feel at home,
and settle down, from which their
children will return to make life, a
burden for you. So little neighbor
hood scouting and co-operation be
comes necessary. .
Fortunately, the classic question,
"Who is my neighbor?" can be easily
and promptly answered from a fly
fighting point of view, viz: Anyone
who lives or "barns" within 250 or
300 yards of your house, for this is
about the foraging range and flight
limit of flies, unless carried by winds
or upon vehicles or domestic animals.
If you can induce all within that
limit by peaceable persuasion to play
up and clean up like good citizens
and neighbors, well and good. If not,
an appeal to the Board of Health or
to the police will be in order. This is
not a personal matter, but a public
riutv. according? to the new health
commandments: "Thou shatt - bearl
witness against thy neighbor i gar
bage heap and against his manure
pile" ; . , , , ' ,
In the meantime, while waiting for
the offending and fly-breeding dirt
heap to be hauled away, it is a com
paratively simple matter to make it
temporarily harmless, without mak
ing yourself liable to spite suits for
damages on the ground of spoiling
the manure for fertilizer purposes.
As tested out and recommended by
the United States Department of Ag
riculture, sprinkling and soaking such
a pest heap with a solution of one
half pound of powdered hellebore in
ten gallons of water (stirring well and
allowing it to stand for twenty-four
hours), will destroy all the maggots,
eggs and larvae which are then pres
ent. . Almost equally good results, al
though not quite so certain, can be
secured by sprinkling freely with
powdered borax and then pourin?
water over, so as to carry it down all
through the mass. The amount of
a gallon to the bushel of manure.

How the World Looks to Him
on the Surf
By Nell Brinkley
Copyright, UK, International Nwi Sorrle.
DRIPPING, the Lover drops on the sand, that, like a
duly-burnished shield, mirrors the cliffs and top
pling surf. The blood sings under his skin. Rain
bow drops, like jewels, leave his hair and roll down his
brown skin. The far send of of the crackling surf ruffles ,
around his feet. He breathes deeply, newly out of the
sea. Perhaps it is the sun in his eyes, but the reaching
foam that jets up at the crash of the green waves flings
up in a white shape tipped with the faint gold of sunshine.
Wave after wave rides in and turns and falls, and the
white suds leap. A wavering shape comes in each time
to melt before he can fix the mocking glimmer of a
creature there. But one wave mounts and rolls, and
snaps over with a soft thunder and a turmoil of snowy
foam, and he finds her there, the woman he loves; the
glow of the sunshine on the highest mist is her faint-gold
hair; white arms, white hands, gems on her breast, white
feet that advance down the green slope; she dances a
white dance in the blown spume of the-sea. And the
Lover watches with reverent eyes. NELL BRINKLEY.

Mmnesota--The Land of Hiawatha
There was once a girl who ushered
in one of the biggest theaters In the
city. She should have been very
happy,, for her work was pleasant,
the hours were not hard and all the
ushers' were attired alike 'in pretty
soft blue dresses with demure .white
collars of sheerest organdie and wide
soft cuffs of the same material.
The girls wtjre all chosen for their
pleasing appearance, and Enid had
an unusually pretty face, although
it was not pleasant. She had soft
blond hair and a delicately tinted
skin, and was slim and straight, but
she was not pleasing to people, be
cause she eternally sulked.
The day she had been engaged
something had been said that light
ened her whole face for a minute,
and she had been actually lovely.
"That new girl is a pippin for
looks." the house manager had re
marked, and had then promptly for
gotten all about her and had not
seen her face day after day when
she ushered people to their seats.
It wasn't that she happened to be
put out about things continually;
the look that her face wore was not
so much a cross look as it was a
look that plainly indicated:
"Of course. 1 am paid to snow you
people to your seat, but it bores me
to death to have to do it, ana it i

Now people will notice a girl's
face, and if it is willing and sweet
and pleasant to look upon they will
remember it. People often looked
at Enid's supercilious little face and
smiled at its loftiness and its sulky
little mouth. The other girls fought
shy of her and gathered in little
knots by themselves and wondered
why Enid worked at all if she felt
so much above them.
One day, and there always come
those days fn a girl's career
when the tiniest happening will
change her entire destinj', Marie
Rooney, the plainest girl that the
establishment boasted, found Enid
weeping bitterly in the dressing
room where the girls left their out
door things. Marie was a little
chary of speaking to Enid, but she
finally went over and toucned tne
girl timidlv on the shoulder.
"What's the matter, has anything
happened to your
Enid looked up to see who was
speaking to her, and the other girl's
obvious sympathy loosened her
tongue and she sobbed out:
Mr. Brandt doesn t want me any
longer: he said that people have
complained about me, and I have to
"But what's the matter?" Marie
asked wonderingly, "what have you
"He said I looked too good for
work," Enid replied, "and he laughed
and I don't know what to do because
I need the money."
And then it wai that Marie Rooney,
who looked not at all stylish in her
plain street clothes, but who smjled
at every one and everything, de
cided to tell Enid, the fastidious,
what the matter was. She did not
anar her. She told her what the
other users thought about her looks,

Learned a Secret : :
and she even imitated the manner in
which Enid ushered the theatergoers
to their seats.
"People aren't going to stand for
that, you know; they come to the
theater to be amused."
"I know what you mean," Enid
sobbed, miserably; "I feel that way
because I have never had to work
before, and I couldn't help being bit
ter. But I'd be so different if I could
have another chance, only it's too

Mr. Brandt was In his office when
the two girls entered and he heard
Marie's story with some twitching at
the corners of his mouth. Marie was
nothing if not voluble.
"AH right," he said, finally; "we'll
try you again. Get into your dress
and let me see if you can give us a
Enid squeezed Marie's hand as they
went back to the dressing room.
"You're a real friend," she whispered,
"and I feel different now. I'm going
to try so hard to make a success of
this thing, and if I do I'll have you
to thank." And she smiled eagerly.
"That's all you have to do, look
like that," Marie whispered back.
"You'll get there, you can't help it."

But time once spent never returns.
Think of the day when you arose,
looked out of the window at a low

were going to get through "another

"How do you find time to read?" She
meant it, too. Her days are spent
in rushing about from one festivity

pleasure and admiration.
The idle kill time they assassinata

their neighborhoods and get exactly
nowhere as the result of their tragic
