KY. DR. T. H. BAKER, Health Officer Vol-.3: APRIL 1919 SERIES 10 EDITOR IAL. "Nowhere is the spirit of progress more evident than in the growing concern of society. for the well. being of the. children The cry of helpless childhood is stiii very bitter and sad;.millions of-children are the innocent victims of terrible. evils, but. it, is.Nevertheless 'true that an increasing amount of intelligent effort is. being directed to the. remedying of those. evils. There. Is a.larger recognition. than: ever. before. of. the fact that the 'future, of the State depends upon the child of today." The house-fly,' meekF and barless. as -he may appear, is beginning to gather his forcea together for li a arpalgn, of spreading disease this summer.

Cleanliness is destructive to flies. The most suitable and most liked by Mr. and - Mrs. Fly for the grtowth of their children is refuse from stables. This forms. the chef substance In which flies deposit their eggs. Other suitable material are cesspools, cow and fowl refuse, decaying veg etables, fruits and frultstuff s, such as potato skins, nmelons, bananas, pears, i "...:.ti Z ' '..
