A fly cannot develop from the egg

Will you help in the campaign

The department of health advises
that "the fly In the house should be
relentlessly pursued and destroyed.
The house which is carefully screened
and protected from flies Is infinitely
safer than the one not so protected. In
the spring of the year the house fly
begins to take on life. Eggs which
were laid the previous fall begin to
hatch. At first the fly is only a little
worm wiggling in some pile of filth.
The eggs are usually laid and the grub
developed in a manure pile or some
mass of garbage or other filth. Before
the grub develops into the fly it is
easily destroyed. If everything in and
about the house were kept scrupulous scrupulously

were kept carefully screened or cov covered

there would be no difficulty in pre
venting the fly nuisance. The most
effective way to prevent the fly nuis

The Importance of this may be seen
when It is considered, that one fly pro
duces "one hundred and twenty-five
millions or more of Its kind in one sea season.
Manure is by far the commonest ma
terial in which the fly lays her eggs.

in this way the developing of the eggs
laid in it by the flies can be practically
prevented. The floors of stables should
be thoroughly flushed with water at
least once in every twenty-four hours.
Human excrement also affords an ex

As a medium for the development of

the fly hatch in about twenty-four
hours, and garbage which is retained
in the kitchen for that length of time
may contain flies In the grub stage. To
prevent this development, all garbage

emptied as often as possible. In coun country

OLD MAIDS' BRIDGE CLUB
Editor Star: I notice In the social
column of the Star that Ocala can
boast more bridge clubs than any other
city of its size in the country. We
have the Married Ladies' Bridge Club,
the Young Married Ladles' Bridge Club,
the Young Matrons Bridge Club, the
Young Ladles Bridge Club, and many
others, but there is always room for
one more and as there is one class of
ladies who are not represented in any
club, and as I unfortunately (or for fortunately)
tunately) fortunately) belong to that neglected
class I am anxious to organize a club
and get into the swim, so I propose to
start an "Old Maids Bridge Club," and
I feel sure we can make it a pronounc pronounced
