Kill the First Fly.
"How do the flies get Into the house
with screens In all the windows and
doors?" Is a question asked by hundreds
of housewlvos who are annoyed by the
pests. A naturalist who has looked
closely Into tho habits of the fly, said :
"The swarms of fllos that are so trouble
some during tho latter part of the sum
mer and In the fall, hatch out In the
house. The screens shut them in In
stead of keeping them out, and really do
more harm than good. It la physically
Impossible to keep every fly out of the
house in'summer tlme,.but by exercising
a little care thousands of them may be
"Nearly all of the trouble is caused by
about a dozen sluggish sixiclmens that
emerge from their winter retreats on the
first warm days of spring. They may be
found on the sunny windows of any room
not in constant use. They should be
killed at once, as they deposit the eggs
from which the millions of summer Hies
are hatched. They are prolific insects,
and one old fly is capable of populating
a whole house with progeny in 'a single
summer. Instead of killing the first fly
of the season, many people make a pet
of it. Its sluggishness and half-frozen
condition excite pity, and it is not un
usual for the most careful housekeeper
to feed and warm it out of pure tender
heartedness. A folded towel should be
kept handy and the early flies killed as
soon as they appear. Then If care is
taken to leave no particles of food and
sugar scattered around the kitchen and
dining-room, and to keeep all substances
on which files feed covered, there will be
no more trouble from flies. Some families
who take those precautious even dispense
with screens in the windows and doom.
If the files como in from outdoors they
find nothing to live on and seek more
congenial quarters. It is best to use
screens, howover, as damp and rainy
weather invariably drives files Into the
house, and they are troublesome until It
Is clear and warm outside."
As a rule, an omelet Is a wholesome
and lnexK!iislve dish, yet one in the pre
paration of which cooks frequently fall,
owing to the carelessness of detail. With
a little attention tho housewife can easily
become a iorfoct cook in tills branch as
well as others. The flavorings and the
ingredients of omelets may be varied in
definitely, but the principle is always the
same. In making an omelet, care should
lie taken that the pun Is hot and dry. To
insure this put a small quantity of In id
into the pan, let it simmer a few minutes
and move it; wipe tho pan dry with a
cloth and put In a little fresh lurd, in
which the omelet may be fried; care
should be taken that the lard doc not
burn, which would spoil the color of the
It is better to make two or three smull
omelets than one very large one, as the
latter cannot be well huudled by the
novice. The omelet made of three eggs
Is the one recommended for beginners.
Hreak tho eggs separately. Tut them
into a bowl and whisk them thoroughly
with a fork J tho longer they are beaten
tho lighter will the omelet be. lieut up a
toiwiioonfiil of milk with the eggs and
continue to beat until tho last moment
before putting into the pan. As soon as
tho omelet sets remove tho pun from the
hotest purl of the lire. Slip a knife under
it to prevent slicking w mo pun. Whou
the center is almost llrm slant the pan,
work tiio omelet ill shape to fold easily
and neutly, and whcii slightly browned
hold a platter against the edge of the
pan and deftly turn it out on the hot
dish. Halt mixed with tho eggs prevents
them from rising, and when 11 Is so used
tho omelet looks Hubby, yet without salt
It will taste insipid. Add a little salt to

Rotten Fruit and Bee Diseases.
8. L. Watktns of Placerville writes as
follows to the Rural freas:
There was a bee diseaso that made
serious havoc in several California
apiaries the past season. The apiaries
located in tho valleys and fruit-growing
regions were the ones that suffered most.
It is not really a new disease; It has
been in California ever since Harbison
estublisned his first apiary in Sacrmento
county, and it has been in existence ever
since. It Is only In certain seasons that
this disease causes tho bees to die in
There Is no boubt but that It is a near
relation to foul brood. After correspond
ing with various parties, and having
some exiierience myself with this bee
disease, I have arrived at the conclusion
that the disease Is caused by bees work
lug on rotten and decaying fruits. In
proof of this assertion, I will stuto that
nil apluries located in the mountains and
away from all fruit-growing regions are
exempt from Its attack. In my early
aplariun career I supposed the disease
was caused by the honey of the buckeye,
but have since found out my mistake.
William Styan of Han Mateo, California,
says that the leading scientists of Den
mark claim that the disease originates
from the black Bmut of rye, which con
tains a minute fungus, and these scientists
term this minute fungus claviceps apium.
No doubt the Deumurk scientists are cor
roct as regards a disease originating
from tho black smut of rye in their
country, but tills California disease Is not
originated from that source, because
apiarists Isolated away from all rye-growing
districts have it the same as If rye
were grown in abundance in that vicinity.
My exiierience Is this: The excessive
heut we iiud in tho forepart of tho
season stopped the secretion of honey in
the flowers almost entirely, and tho bees
resorted to decaying fruits for a supply.
We hud a luto frost which destroyed
most of tho fruit aud left a thinly
scattered crop of diseased fruit, which
soon showed indications of rot and decay.
When tho excessive heat of July aud
August cuius on, the bees worked hurd
on tills decaying fruit,
l'eculiur spots of decay made their ap
pearuuee on vurious kinds of fruit, which
were soon followed by a slimy mold;
when they fell to the ground many of
them would burst open, scattering their
contention the ground, which In a short
space of time woidd be covered wllhlbis
Tho bees worked industriously on this
infected pouiuco, carrying tho decayed
matter filled with fungi to their hive, and
mingling in with tho honey in the partly
filled cells. This honey, or fruit Juice
rulher, soon commenced to ferment in
tho liivu, the iineupped uells, us well us
those that had been sealed up; this fer
mentation process somewhat decomposed
tho wax cover of tho uells, giving them a
faded appearance, and froth or bubbles
In the first stages of fermentatiou the
honey had a very dlsugreeublo tuste, aud
emitted an odor Jiko rancid butter.
When this fruit-Juice honey commenced
to ferment, tho bees begun to act wild
und strunge; there was un unnatural
activity about the diseased hives; the
bees flying in great numliurs around the
hives, running in aud out apparently
greutly confused; they would pay no at
tention to robbers at all; they would pack
the honey backward and forward between
them until it was all used up; young bees
of all uges were scattered promiscuously
uround the front of the hive; some were
dend; others crawling in a listless man
ner; Inside tho hive young bees Just
emerging from tho comb would crawl to
tho outside and go tumbling over tho
alighting-board; tho queen seemed to be
an entire failure; a strong colony iu a
couple of weeks would dwindle down bo
as to bo nimble to protect their combs,
and tho moth would complete this work
of destruction. From these observations
I camo to the conclusion that the dis
ease was caused by the fungi in tho fruit
Juice, which tho bees had gathered.
Hclence teaches us that the various
kinds of fermentation are caused by liv
ing vegetable organisms of the lowest
class of fungi, sometimes accompanied
with animal organism or anlmacuho; it is
difficult to give tho true origin of these
minute fungi, whether they are produced
spontaneously, or from seed or eggs, but
under favorable circumstance aud con
ditions, they are always developed.
These minute fungi appear iu endless
disguises, an army that people tho air
und sow broadcast tho seeds of destruc
tion; no creature in tho insect world Is
exempt from Its attack.
Dr. White, in tho American Journal of
Science, states that some of these fungi
are so small that !2s,iKio of them, placed
in a row touching each other, would not
occupy more than an inch Iu length.

would suggest that when the disease

A lady of wealth and with the rich
surroundings and costly works of art
that wealth brings was one evening
alone, with only one servant ill the
house. Being !u her chamber as she
laid aside articles of jewelry in their
appropriate places in her bureau, she
chanced to raise her eyes to the mirror
opposite, and from a light in tho other
corner of the room she caught in the
mirror the reflection of a figure of a
man curled up under a large center
table, but hidden from ull sight save
what was gained by this reflection in
the mirror. Iu this way she saw one
of his hands resting on the floor. This
hand was minus two fingers, and she
knew at once that close by her was one
of the most desperate characters whose
crimes and fiendish deeds had been
the terror of the surrounding country
for miles. Now, who could blame her
if she had screamed or made ft hurried
effort to reach the door? Had she done
so it would have sealed her fate. But
forcing herself to lie culm she finished
what she w as doing at the bureau, then
quietly stepping to the bell rang for
the one servant in the house. When
the girl appeared she quietly said:

greatest apparent composure ut the

When United States Senator Wol
cot, of Colorado, was in Chicago, he
was, like every other distinguished vis
itor, taken to the Auditorium. He saw
everything from foundation to cope
stone, and was then escorted to Mr.
Peck's otlice, to tell the latter what lie
thought of it all. Woloott is us full of
fun as a goose is full of grease. After
expatiating in most glowing terms
upon the wonders of the great building,
and speaking of the projectors aud
builders iu terms which brought a mod
est blush to President Peck's face, the
senator closed his encomiums with a
story. "When I lived iu New York
some years ago," said he, "there was
elected to the state senate a coarse, il
literate fellow from the Hudson River
districts named Morrissey. It wasn't
John Morrissey, of course, but another.
Morrissey was a rich liquor dealer, who
wore loud clothes, costly jewelry and
a blazing diamond. Ho was an Irish
man aud a jolly sort of chap, but with
a very dense intellect. Like many
others of his kind, he was fond of big
words, aud affected always the lan
guage of culture without knowing its
use or its meaning. One time the sen
ator came down to New York with
some committee or other and stayed at
the Fifth Avenue Hotel. Everything
was new to him. He stared about a
good deal, but was too shrewd not to
attempt to conceal bis curiosity. One
morning the senator was missed. He
had been seen but a moment before.
So it was not thought that he had left
the hotel. Search was made every
where, but without success. Finally
one of the committee found the sena
tor on the top floor of the hotel wan
dering aimlessly about, 'Why, Mor
rissey, what in the world are you doing
away up here,' exclaimed his friend.
The senator drew himself tip with a
'What's-that-to-you air,' and after a
pause said with dignity, 'Sure I've been
spending an hour in these cuspudors,
wandering pro and con!"1
"And," continued Mr. Wolcott, "as
I wondered 'pro and con' through the
'cuspudors' of the Auditorium I thought
of poor Morrissey and what a treat it
would have been to him to take the
same journey. Chicago Herald.
Farming la the South.
What odd and unexpected changes
time produces! Years ago, for example,
the New Hampshire and Vermont farm
ers were among the most independent
and thrifty folk on the coutinent.
Farming lu New England nowadays,
however, is a constaut griud and dis
couragement. The soil has grown
stubborn aud the mortgage has in
creased. If the grandfathers of the present
generation in Vermont and New Hamp
shire had been told that their children's
children would pull up stakes and col
onize in different parts of the South,
the N Y. Herald thinks they would have
raised their hands in horror. But the

Things as They Aro.
It was Holland who, in his book.
"Nicholas Miutuni," said: "In this
world we must take tli m rs as they ure,
not as tliey should be." Holland was,
in his day, a popular writer, and wrote
some pretty fair books, hut he laid
down a wronjr principle when lie wrote
the smitinient quoted above, says Ed
R. l'ritchard in lUe Arkansaw Traveler.
Legitimately carried out. it would
stop the wheels of progress and reform,
aud leave the whole human race in a
deplorable posit inn. It implies thai
we must be contented with the things
as wo lind them. Had Copernicus,
Newton, and Martin Luther acted oo
this principle of accepting tilings as
they found them the world would just
now be barely emerging from the con
dition it was in during the niiddle'ages.
It is safe to say that a spirit of dis
content at the existing state of affairs
lies at the bottom, the beginning of all
Copernicus was not satisfied with the
theories of the scientists, of his time re
garding the motions of the heavenly
bodies, so he investigated for himself
and made discoveries that completely
overthrew the doctrines of his asso
ciates and set the world right where
from the beginning it had been wrong.
So Newton, in the same spirit of dis
satisfaction with the accepted phil
osophy of his day, gave to the world
his valuable discovery of the law oi
gravitation. So Martin Luther, dis
gusted with the existing state of affairs
in the catholic church, and not content
to take them as he found them, started
the reformation, and, iu doing it, set
the world on the broad highway lead
ing to in'ellijc'iial light and freedom.

A traveler In Norway says that tho
hursen in that country have a verv seu-
jsilile way of taking their food whieh rer
huKi might lie beneficially followed here.
They have a bucket of water put down
I by the side of their allowance of hav.
: It Is iiiterenting to see with what relish
they take a sip of one and a mouthful of
the other alternately, souietimts only
moistening their mouths, as a rational be
ing would do while eating a dinner of
such dry food. A broken-winded horse
is scarcely ever seen in Norway, and the
question is if the mode of feeding has
not something to do with the preserva
tion of the animals' respiratory organs.
