ty policy holders.
The pave question Is not as
black a picture as is painted by some
of Honesdale's aggressive (?) citi
zens. Tho fact that Main street has
never been paved is a set back for
tho town, but duo credit should bo
given the borough council for keep
lng Main street In as good shape as
it has been of lato notwithstanding
tho wherewithal It has had to do
work. Tho streets are In as good
condition to-day as they havo over
been, but need Immediate repair. To
do this tho town council has mado
arrangements with Seaman & Bren-
ncman and havo purchased 1,000
tonB of crushed or cracked stone to
make tho necessary repairs. Tho
ten-ton roller will bo In uso at $10
per nine-hour day. Another expense
you say? Yes, but Is is tho best tho
council can do until It can got hotter.

FLY OR HEALTH?
How to Hid tho House of Files mid

How call I got tho flics out of my

First, kill all tho flics In the
house. Close tho windows and
doors, heat a small coal shovel, and
pour twenty drops of carbolic ncld
on it. Tho fumes from tho acid will
kill all tho (lies In a large room.
Another way Is to burn pyrethrum
powder ordinary "Persian Insect
Powder" which, if puro nnd fresh
ly ground, will give off a dense
smoko that will stupefy every fly
within reach of Its fumes, so that
they can then bo swept up nnd burn
ed. Kill them with "swatters." A
very simple homo-mndo "swatter"
can bo nindo of a piece of wire win
dow screening four or live Inches
wide nnd six to eight Inches long,
Inserted In a cleft In tho end of a
For tho stray lly, uso sticky fly
paper and poison. Tho most effec
tive poison Is a solution of formalin
In the proportion of eight teaspoon
fuls to a quart of water. Tills Is a
safe poison where llttlo children are
about, for oven If they should drink
It, It would not kill them. Break
a small nick in the edge of a bot
tle's mouth, fill the bottlo with the
solution and stand it Inverted, in a
saucer. Enough of tho poison will
How into the saucer to answer the
purpose, and as It evaporates more
will How down from the bottlo. A
piece of 'bread covered with sugar
placed in tho saucer will attract the
flies. If placed where dogs or birds
can get at it, cover the poison out
fit with a screen of coarse wire, so
as not to poison anything but the
Another cheap and reliable fly
poison which is not dangerous to
human life is made by dissolving
one drachm of bichromate of petrol
eum in two ounces of water, sweet
ened with sugar.
Fly traps can bo easily made at
home by rolling a piece of wire net
ting into a cylinder eight inches in
diameter and a foot high. Another
piece of the netting is folded Into a
cone and placed over the top and
another cone placed inside the low
er end of the cylindor, this cone hav
ing a hole punched in its apex
through which the Hies can crawl
readily. The device should be set
up so the Hies may crawl under it,
and halted with sweets.
A form of fly trap that Is especial
ly effective in stores and restaurant
kitchens consists of a trough of tin
three quarters of an incli wide and
of the same depth, and as long as
the width of the window. If this Is
placed close against the window on
the inside and kept half filled with
kerosene, every fly approaching the
window will fall Into it, for the
fumes of the kerosene have an over
powering effect on the insect.
Screen doors are a favorite gath
ering placo for flies, which hang
about them waiting for someone to
let them in. Mix a teaspoonful of
carbolic acid with a quart of kero
sene and rub tho solution on the
screen door. It will at once cease
to attract tho flies. A weak solution
of formaldehyde may bo applied in
the same way. ..
The same carbolic acid and kero
sene solution may be used In an or
dinary plant sprayer to spray the
garbago can, which Is the principal
attraction for flies indoors. A bet
ter plan, however, is to keep the
garbago can outdoors and put a fly
trap in the cover of It. Any local
tinsmith can attach a trap to the
cover readily, and at a very small
expense. Fly traps can also be eas
ily attached to window screens so
that flies which do get in will be
caught as they aro going out.
There would ibe no flies to kill if
thero were no filth for them to
breed in. Ninety per cent, of all
flies are bred in horse manure, so
keep the stable tightly screened,
with fly traps set in the window
screens. "Spray the floors around tho
horse stalls with a good disinfectant.
Pyroligneous acid, a by-product of
tho distillation of turpentine, is a
very valuable spray because It is ef
fective and non-inflammable. It can
uo bought in .New York tor ? 4.125 a
'barrel and may be abtaincd wher
ever paints and oils aro sold. Kero
sene is good, but increases the lire
risk. Keep the stable refuse in a
bin tightly covered with a wire net
ting cover. This will prevent the
femalo fly from getting across to tho
contents to lay her eggs.
Clean up every place where de
caying animal or vegetable refuse ac
cumulates. Spray every recoptaclo
for refuse with ono of tho kerosene
or pyroligneous acid preparations,
or with any good cmmercial disin
fectant. Remember all tho timo that
flics and 111th begin with tho same
letter and moan the same thing.
Keep the flies 'away from tho sick
room, especially where there are
Don't let waste paper or old rags

If you cannot trace tho flies about
your premises to any othor source

Keep Hies awny from food. Hem
