THE DEADLY FLY
The house fly, which we have
hitherto in our ignorance considered
as a harmless creature, or, at the
worst, simply a nuisance, has been
shown, as the result of scientific researches, io be in reality a most
dangerous insect. Dr. L. 0. Howard, in his recent investigation of
the economic loss through insects
that carry disease, devotes a chapter
to the house fly as a carrier of
typhoid bacteria. The facts brought
out are startling.
At the outset emphasis is laid
upon the fact that the term "typhoid
fly" is open to some objection as
conveying the erroneous idea that
this fly is responsible for the spread
of typhoid only. As a matter of
fact, tho insect is dangerous from
every point of view, and is liable to
spread the bacteria of all the known
intestinal diseases. The true connection of the so-called house fly
with typhoid fever and the true
scientific evidence regarding its role
as a carrier of that disease, have
only recently been worked out.
Celli in 1888 fed flies with pure cultures of the typhoid bacillus, and inoculations of animals were also
made, providing that the bacilli
which pass through flies are virulent. Dr. George M. Koeber, in bis
report on the prevalence of typhoid
fever in the District of Columbia,
has drawn attention to the danger of
the contamination of food supplies
that have been in touch typhoid patients. The prevalence of typhoid
fever in the camps of the United
States army during the Spanish war
brought about the appointment of
an army typhoid commission, which
found: First, that the flies swarmed
around the sanitary quarters of the
hospital, and then visited and fed
upon the food prepared for the
soldiers in the mess tents. Secondly,
that officers whose mess tents were
protected by screens suffered proportionately less from typhoid than
those whose tents were not so protected, Thirdly, that typhoid fever
gradually disappeared with the approach of cold weather and the consequent disabling of the fly in the
fall of the year. The final conclusion wis that the Hy carries the
typhoid bacillus either by the ad
herence of infected matter to its
feet, or within its own digestive organs.
In 1899 Dr. Howard mode a study
of the typhoid or house fly in its le-
lation to country and city sewage,
and lie mnde a further investigation
of thc species of insects that are attracted by food supplies in houses.
In this investigation he found that
the typhoid or house Hy constituted
'.IcS.eS per cent of the whole number
of insects captured in houses
throughout the country, under thc
conditions indicated above. The
importance of tbis insect as a carrier
of the dreaded disease in army
camps, as shown in the Spanish war
and in the Boer war and in the
camps of great armies of laborers
engaged in gigant c enterprises, like
the digging of tbe Panama canal, is
obvious. But it is certain that.even
under oily conditions, the influence
of this fly in the spread of disease
bas been greatly underestimated.
In a report to the Merchants' Association of New York, based  upon
numerous observations of the relation of flies to intestinal diseases,
whicb was published in December,
1907, it was shown that the greatest
number of flies occurred in the
weeks ending July 27th and August
8rd; and that the deaths from intestinal diseases rose above tbe normal at the same time at which flies
became prevalent; culminated at the
same high point; and fell off with
slight lag at the time of the gradual
falling off of the prevalence of the
insects.
A certain species of mosquito has
been demonstrated to be the cause of
the spread of malaria. Yellow fever
is caused by another kind of mosquito; and now we know that the supposedly harmless house fly is an active
agent in the distribution of intestinal diseases. In view of these facts,
Dr. Howard's contention that this
familiar household insect Bhould
henceforth be known as the"typhoid
fly" would seem to be well made.—

A Big Success
The last of the  free sacred  song
recttals, under the direction of Prof.
0. P. Pugb, was held in the rink
last night, and a large and appreciative gathering of the music-loving
public was present. The date was
changed from Saturday to Friday in
order to give the business men an
opportunity to attend. These recitals have proven very popular
with the public, and now that tbey
have come to an end, they will undoubtedly be greatly missed. The

NEWS OF THE CITY
The union gospel choir and the
junior choir, of this city, went over
to Repuhlic Thursday evening, and
gave a sacred song recital in the
opera house in that city under the
leadership of 0. F. Pugh. A special
train was run over the Kettle Valley
line, and about lfiO citizens accompanied the singers to Republic. The
party returned home at 2:30 yesterday morning.
An excursion will be run over the
Kettle Valley line from Reepublic
to the Empire day celebration in this
city next Monday. The train will
leave Republic at8a.nl., and arrive
in this city at 10:30 a.m., reaming
to Republic at 1 o'clock off 'Tuesday
morning. The fare for the round
trip will be $1.60.
A "smoker" will be given in the
rink next Monday night, commencing at 8 o'clock. The principal
features on the program are a couple
of wresting matches—one between
S. B. Matson and C. F. Cove, of this
city, catch-as-catch-can, and another between McCool, of Republic,
and O'Brian, of Curlew. Matson
won the match at Republic on
April 17, and Cove challenged the
winner of that event, and tbis match
is the result. It is expected that it
will be hotly contested.
Tbe Grand Forks and Danville
Baseball clubs will meet for the first
time this season on tbe Danville
diamond tomorrow, and a good

Lower Eates on Fruit
J. A. Ruddick, of the Ottawa department of agriculture—dairy, cold
storage, fruit and extension of markets commissioner—is at present
visiting Kootenay for the purpose of
gaining as complete a knowledge as
possible of the conditions ruling fruit
growing and the disposal of the produce in this province. It is expected that he will visit thc Boundary district before returning east.
In Winnipeg Mr. Ruddick interviewed W. S. Lanigan, general
freight agent for the western lines
of the Canadian Pacific railway.wbo
informed him thai notices were being sent out authorizing a reduction
in charge for fruit shippad to the
east by growers. This reduction
will apply to this district, and would,
Mr. Ruddick Bays, considerably lessen the charges for small shipments.
V. Kistler, of Grand Forks, N.
1)., has received the appointment of
district freight and passenger agent
of the Great Northern, with head
quarters in this city. Mr. Kistler
arrived in the city tbis week, and
has assumed the duties of his new
position.
It looks very muoh as if the pres
ent council does not care whether
the reporters attend tbe meetings or
not, simply because its pet organ
does not take enough interest in
civic affairs to send a representative
there.

ollicer at Ferry, Wash., was a visitor
in the city on Monday. Mr. .Sherwood expects to be transferred to the

abreviate the story as much as possible, he said: At a cerlain reduction sale they have marked dollar
articles down to 98 cents, and then
charge a dollar for tbem because
there are no pennies in this province
with which to make the change.

THE CITY COUNCIL
There was not much business
transacted at the meeting of the
city council last Monday night. All
the members were present with the
exception of Aid. Whiteside.
Wm. Bonthron's offer of $225 for
lot 2G, on Winnipeg avenue, next
his new building, was, on motion of
Aid. Lequime and McCallum, accepted, with the reservation that 12
feet of the property be left for a
roadway.
A communication from the city
solicitor respecting the sale of city
real estate was received and ordered
filed.
The following tenders were received for repainting the city hall:
A. F. Michener, $240; A. Pocock,
$250; H. E. Knight, $150. The
contract for the work was awarded
to Mr. Knight.
J. A. Smith addressed the council
in favor of the city opening Gold
street, in the North addition. The
matter was referred to the board of
works, with power to act.
The chairman of the water and
light committee reported that tbe
new power line from the city's substation to tbe pumping station had
been completed.
The clerk was instructed to notify
the South Kootenay Power company
to carry out its agreement with the
city in regard to the construction of
a power line from its substation at
the smelter  to the city's substation.
The lawn sprinkling question was
discussed briefly, but no action was
taken. It appeared to be the opinion of the members of the council
that a small fee should be charged
users of city water for sprinkling
purposes in order to pay for the employment of an extra pumping man.
The sanitary condition of the city
waB discussed at considerable length.
Some of the suggested that, as a precautionary measure against the
spread of disease or the outbreak of
an epidemic, a special health
inspector be employed to make a
thorough inspection of the disposal
of sewage. The person assigned this
duty, it was thought, should be disinterested enough to mnke an honest
report to the council without fear of
offending friends.
The chairman of the special committee appointed to investigate the
advisably of straightening Bridge
street, reported that in viecv of the
city solicitor's opinion that it would
require the passage uf a debenture
bylaw to carry out tbe improvement, the might ns well be dropped,
as the committee did not think the
ratepayers would approve such a
measure.
Bylaw No. 59—the Real Property
Conveyance Bylaw—was considered
in committee and rend a third time.
A resolution wns adopted appoint
ing the following aldermen as members of thc court of revision, whicli
meets in tbe city hall at 2 p.m. on
the 31st: Whiteside, Davis, Manly,
McCallum and Sheads.
Tbe council then adjourned.

SATURDAY, MAY 22, 1909
Any measure intended to improve
Ihe health of the community, or to
safeguard the people against the
ravages of epidemics, is to commended There is therefore no reason why the city government should
exhibit timidity in its efforts to improve the sanitary condition of tbe
city. While it may be contended
that the health of our citizens is
good at present, and that there is
no cause for alarm; yet it is a fact
that in cities where strict health
ordinances are not enforced, when
once a contangious disense breaks
out, it quickly becomes epidemic.
Even now in cities to which the
peopie of Grand 'Forks mnke frequent visits typhoid and other con-
tangious ailments are raging, and
there is no telling how soon disease
germs may be brought here by some
of the travelers; nnd once the disease gets a foothold, the people
will have to pay a fearful penalty
for their neglect in keeping the city
clean. Grand Forks is far from being in anything like decent sanitary
condition. It is best to speak on
this subject without mincing words,
because a general cleaning up may
not only make a cure—usually after
a long and expensive illness—unnecessary, but it may also be tbe
means of prolonging the lives of
many of our citizens. In the absence of a modern sewerage, even tbe
lax health bylaw now in force is
snid to be violated daily in all parts
of the city. Outhouses are said to
to be in a filthy condition. Few of
them are constructed and maintained in accordance with the health
bylaw, and a number of them are
overlooked by the sanitary officers.
Behind nearly every barn there is
a huge manure pile. These places are
kno wn to be prolific breeders of Hies;
and the fly is the worst carrier of
infectious disoases that this part of
the country is cursed with. In view
of these facts, the ollieials should enforce the present health laws, and
the citizens should make a Bpecinl
effort to observe them. If the present officers are afraid of making enemies by taking action, let some disinterested person be appointed.
Some people imagine that all that
is required to build a city is to hold!
a pnblio meeting once n year, under
the name of the board of trade or
some other public organisation, talk
boastiogly in favor of public improvements nnd new enterprises,
and then go home nnd take another
twelvemonths' rest, while providence
alone looks after the affairs of the
city.
The evangelist have come and
departed, and it ie generally conceded that they accomplished some
gnotl during their stay here. They
appeared to be fair-minded pien,
and did not tellus.as revivalists often
do, that all men nre savages. Taken
as n whole they preached n sensible
religion, and it is said that they
gained a number of converts.
The acme of insincerity has been
reached when men talk in favor or
new enterprises at public meetings,
and then go home and attempt to
drive out those already  established.
The Sun today print an article, by
an eminent authority, on the supposedly harmless house fly as a
carrier of disease. It will pay those
who value health to read the article.
The people living in the neighborhood of the slaughter house have
not forgotten that that institution is
Btill doing business.
Oh, for an old-time council meeting, where public affairs were ventilated in open session.
The city government appears to be
rapidly merging into a sort of family
affair.

In Five Minutes
Take your scur stomach—or maybe
you call it indigestion, dyspepsia, gastritis or catarrh of stomach; it doesn't'
matter—take your ettiinetcli trouble
right with you to your pharmacist
and ask him to open a oil-cent case of
Pape's Diapepsin and let you eat one
22-ge'eiln Triungule and see if within
live minutes there is left anv trace of
your stomach misery.
The correct mime for your trouble
is food fermentation—food souring;
the digestive organs become weak,
tliere is loss of gastric juice; your food
is only half digested, and you become
affected with loss of appetite, pressure
and fullness after eating, vomiting,
nausea, heartburn, griping in bowels,
tenderness in the pit of stomach, bud
taste in mouth, constipation, pain in
limbs, sleeplessness belching of gas,
biliousness, sick headache, nervousness, dizziness and many other similar
symptoms.
If your appetite is tickle, and nothing tempts you, or you belch gas or if
you feel bloated after eating, or your
food lies like a lump of lead on your
stomach, you can make up your mind
that at the bottom of all this there is
but one cause—fermentation of undigested food.
Prove to yourself, after your next
meal, that your stomach is as good as
any; that there ie nothing really
wrong. Stop this fermentation and
begin eating what you want without
fear of discomfort or misery.
Almost instant relief is waiting for
you. It is merely a matter of how
soon you take a little Diapepsin.

Trust not   water, trust not   weapons;
trust   not   clawed    nor   horned
tilings;
Neither give thy soul to   women, nor
thy life to sons of kings.
Look! the  Moon,   the   silver   roamer,
from whose splendor darkness Hies
With her starry cohorts inarching, like
a crowned king through the skies.
All the grandeur, ail the glory, vanish
in the Dragon's jaw;
What is written on the forehead, that
will be, and nothing more.
Counsel in daiigar; uf it
Unwarned, be nothing begun.
But nobody asks a Prophet
Shall the risk of a dinner be tun!
Avarice begetteth anger; blind desires
from her begin;
A   right fruitful  mother is she of a
countless spawn of sin.
Can a golden Deer have being? yet for
sucli the Hero pined:—
When   the   cloudjof danger   hovers,
then it shadow dims the mind.
Be second and not first!—the share's
the same
If all go well.    If  not, the   head's to
blame.
Passion will bo Slave or Mistress: follow her, she brings to woe;
Lead her, 'tis the way to Fortune.
Choose the path that thou wiltgo.
When the time of trouble cemeth,
friends may ofttimes irk us most:
Fed' the calf at milking-hour the
mother's leg is tying post.
In good fortune not elated, in ill-fortune not dismayed,
Ever eloquent in council, never in the
fight affrayed—
Proudly emulous of honor, steadfastly
on wisdom set;
Perfect virtues in tbe nature of a
noble soul are met.
Whoso hath them, gem and glory of
the three wide worlds is lie:
Happy mother she who bore him, she
who nursed him on her knee.
Small things wax exceeding mighty,
being cunningly combined:—
Furious elephants ure fastened with a
rope of grass-blades twined.
Let the household hold together,though
the house he ne'er so small:
Strip the I'icS-husk from the rice -grain,
and it ffl'OWeth not at all.
Sickness, anguish, bonds, and woe
Spring from wrongs wrought lung ag".
Keep   wealth   for   want, but spend il
fur thy wife,
And wealth, and wife, and all to guard
thy [He.
