Health Hints -:- Fashions -:- Woman's Work - Household Topics Swat the Fly and Save the Child 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.

How the World Looks to Him The Foam 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.

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 Akeler, Minn...

LOFTIS had what I really deserved I should be enjoying the show myself rather than running here and there at your beck and call." 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 go." "But what's the matter?" Marie asked wonderingly, "what have you done?" "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, How the Theater Usher 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 late. ' "Come on with me, and I'll see Mr. Brandt," Marie said, soothingly. "You're a peach of a looker, and I'll tell him what you told me. We'll fix it." 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 few smiles." 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." Keeping Accounts with Yourself BY BEATRICE FAIRFAX. An old Arabic laying reads: "Fout thingi come not back: The spoken word; the sped arrow; time passes; the neglected opportunity." The wisdom of the ages lies in thi old proverb. How many of ui put its lesson into practice on our way through life? How many of ui keep books with life and carry on accounts with and for ourselves which make for our own growth and progress and which saves us from too great and cruel in debtedness marked down against us? For all we get in life we pay. And the price ii too often extortionate. We don't take the finality of things seriously enough. And there is a grim reality in many things. We speak idly and without thought. We forget what we have said be cause we gave it so little considera- tion before expressing it and meant so little by it when we spoke. But the fact that we have spoken has its weight. Someone listened. Someone will remember. Nothing we can say or do after ward can quite make up for the care less word we spoke. Perhaps it hurt someone we loved. Perhaps it harmed the reputation of someone to whom we wished no evil. Perhaps it put us on record as taking an atti tude in some matter which is not basically our opinion at all. But we have spoken and the word will not return. The sped arrow reaches some mark perhaps not the one at which we aimed, but a mark, nevertheless. Shoot into the air and you may cleave the bark of a tree, destroy a twig or even end the life of a human being. The arrow that snaps off from a bow or that comes from an action has gone. Whether it goes wide of its mark or straight to it, that it has been sped is a fact and a fact which we cannot undo. And time I Most of us treat time as if eternity itself were ours. Wa waste days and even weeks with a prodigal carelessness we would fear to show in our disposal of money. But time once spent never returns. Think of the day when you arose, looked out of the window at a low ering sky and wondered how you were going to get through "another rainy day!" How did you get rid of that day? "Get rid of it," mind you; dispose of wonderful minutes and hours that might have meant growth and progress; lavishly expend time that should have been used to definita purpose. Did you mope around the house complaining, or did you rush out in search of diversion, or even fritter away the time in telephone conver sations and nibbling at candy? Every time I hear anyone talking: in blase accents of "killing an hour, I wonder if they have any idea of the opportunities for study and use ful service to the world and self cultivation they are wasting I Recently I overheard one society girl say to another in a lazy drawl: "How do you find time to read?" She meant it, too. Her days are spent in rushing about from one festivity to another and beautifying herself for long hours of the day in prepara tion for each new excursion after pleasure and admiration. The idle kill time they assassinata most of the peace and happiness in their neighborhoods and get exactly nowhere as the result of their tragic waste of life itself. And if ever they awake to a reali zation of their own folly and long to make up for it, life is inexorable. Nothing can make up for wasted time. The hour that is gone never will return. That we cannot recall time which is passed ought to make us valua time seriously and refrain from wast ing it. And however much of new chanca life offers us, it will never again give us back the same opportunity we once neglected and wasted. What that opportunity might have meant we can never know. What we might have accomplished by seizing a mo ment which came and was gone again lies hidden from our knowl edge. ' But there are things in life which offer themselves to us and go, never to return; and there are deeds which we do which are sadly irretrievable. It is well for us to stop and question before acting or failing to act: Is this final? Is it for all time? Is it one of the things which will never return a moment which is here now and which I shall always regret if I lose? Hotel- Marie Antoinette Broadway, 66th and 67th Sts. NEW YORK CITY.

An unusually attractive dessert which it equally good to eat and good to look upon is strawberry tart Make some good puff paste; then roll it out to the thickness of about a quarter of an inch, and with a round, fluted paste cutter stamp out as many piecesas may be required, then work the paste up again, and roll it out to the same thicknots, and with a smaller cutter stamp out sufficient pieces to correspond with the larger ones.
