HE little poem beginning
B a b y >by.
H e r e 's a fly ,
showe the spirit with which the
house fly used to be regarded
and even appreciated as a do*
mestic ornament and baby’s
plaything. They did not realize
that baby’a lift lay with the
filthy insect who “ tickled baby’s
no6c” and who was most prob-
ably just from tome consump-
tive’a or typhoid patient’s sick-
room or from a neighboring
stable.
As soon as the fly has emerg-
ed from the shell it is ready for
its deadly work.
It starts out
from the stable or the garbage
can in search of more filthy
food. Around it flies from one
insanitary place to another. It
enters the sickroom and gath-
ers there tho death dealing bac-
teria. It gets typhoid germs on
its legs and flies away to some
table and wipes them off on the
food.
It gathers tuberculosis
germs and crawls into the sug-
ar and over the butter and often
ends by tumbling into the milk.
It is hard enough for grown
persons to fight off the contami-
nating flies, but helpless babies
are wholly at the mercy of their
worst foe.
The flies swarm
about them, sottle down on their
faces, walk over their nursing
bottles and leave only when
driven away by the baby's res-
cuer.

A young genjus named McCarthy

advice. Here is wliat his friend toicl
