Losses of Live Weight, Discontent and

dairyman by Increasing the milk yields,
Decrease iu milk production, losses
of live weight, discontent and unrest
ara promoted among herds during the
summer months as the consequence of
the activities of the common stable fly

milk flow of from 25 to 40 per cent is
not uncommon as the direct result of
flies and the extreme heat of summer,
Under existing conditions with a keen
demand for dnlry products and with
prices at a high mark, it is highly de

Some Practical Remedies.
Remedies are darkened barns, stable
sanitation and spraying with fly re
pellents. Thorough treatment of ma
nure, its daily removal from the barn
to a distance, the use of hanging bur
lap or other devices In the barn doors
to brush flies from the animals, baited
fly traps placed outside the barn and
closed milk palls are among the neces
sary requirements for keeping flies

mouth parts, punctures the hide of
cows and sucks their blood, while the
horn fly locates at the base of the
horns where It irritates the skin and

a boy is held from idleness or vice
by giving him something better to

some study or for some worthy line

It can help in many things, but a

Meant of Eliminating Evil.
The stabling of cows during, the
heat of the day in cool, darkened barns
is recommended as one of the best
means of eliminating the fly evil, pro
vided adequate labor is available to
keep the stables clean and sanitary.
As manure provides an ideal breeding
material for flies it Is imperative that
none of it be allowed to accumulate In
or around the stable. Spraying the
animals with some fly repellent, such
as kerosene emulsion, is an effective
remedy, but requires repeated appli
cations. Repellents should be used
with great care, as no good one has
yet been devised which is not likely to
slightly taint the milk. It is best to
spray the cows Just before milking
each evening, using a hand spray pump
or applying it with a brush or a
sponge. There are some.nntlfly solu
tions on the market which are more or
less effective. Most of them consist
of some coal-tar product combined
with either fish oil, oil of tar, or rosin.
Lime sprinkled about the barn on ma
nure Is also useful in destroying flies.
Cheap Fly Repellent.
To prepare kerosene emulsion one
of the cheapest and best home-made
fly repellents dissolve one-half pound
of yellow soap in a gallon of soft wa
terlieated to the boiling point andwlth
this combine two gallons of kerosene
In a bnrrel where the solution can be
churned vigorously. Dilute this mix
ture with six gallons of water. This
amount of emulsion is sufficient for
spraying 100 cows and should be pre
pared only as needed. When smaller
amounts are required they should be
prepared in the proportions given.
