the proportion of insurance to value

The house fly has fallen upon evil
times. Alter having long been tol-
erated under the impression that it
was one of nature's wisely provided
scavengers the bacteriologists have
decided that it is an active a-ent in
the spread of disease and its doom
has been ordained.
It is claimed that experimer.ts
I man. at .Manila show tiat tin- ou.-
zing and all-pervading house fly was
the medium of spreading cholera
and that when the insect was care-
fuly excluded from the prison the
epidemic was checked. There are
many other counts in the indictment
of the housefly. It is charged with
eneriimr the family milk jar as a
bacteria factory and slaying more
innocents in the city of New York
in a single 'season thai fell before
the sanguinary edict of Kir.- Herod.
If the bacteriologists ate to he be-
lieved the house fly is responsible
for the greater portion "f the sum-
mer mortality of the metropolis and
u war of extermination has been de-
cided upon. Kven the ir.oquito.
somewhat widely famed as a dis-
penser and distributer -f disease is
now obliged to take a minor position
in this exportation of the house fly.
The method of ridding the metrop-
olis of this newly diagnosed case of
diseasp would md seem to be as easy
as pointing out its danger-. It has
been declared that cleanliness par-
ticulary in stables will greatly re-
duce the evil and consequently im-
prove health conditions. It is also
dotibtlesM true that the abolition of
horse stables in a large ai d popu-
lous eity would tend .to the better-
Inient of health conditions regardless
j of the alleged pernicious activity of
! the house lly.
It is not unlikely that the con-
clusions of the insect experts have a
foundation of truth. At the same
time it has not been shown that the
long established theory that the
house fly has merit as a scavenger
is without warrant. In any event
the merits and demerit' of the fly
will not be determined at once as jt
will be many moons before i' is ef-
CASE OF MINISTERIAL PLUCK
I'ierpoiil Moigan lias immense re-
spect for all kinds of pluck. He
says one of the liucsl examples that
ever came under his observation was
iiveu by an Knglish clergyman lie
'wul a i it'll parish' iiier Lady I'.lauk
who iliclaled to and heilored him
out a.eoiish. At length he
cl.ii d to ut up with this kind of
treatment and told her ladyship so.
ii real tir she refused to put any
thing in the olTeitory. merely mak-
ing a tately inclination over the
plate. This moved an elder to re-
mark in her hearing: "We could
tin with less of her manners and more
of her cash." The clergyman din-
ing at a Lord's I able told this story
with great success one evening. The
host said with a frown: "Are you
aware sir that Lady Klank is a rel-
ative of mine i " The clergyman
smiled slightly. "No'' he said "I
wasn't but in future when I tell
the story I'll always h.' careful to
mention the relationship."

THE SELLS-FLOTO 'SHOWS.
Will Soon Be Here. j
Now comes the cheerful circus j
press agent with his first aid to the
children. The Sells-Floto shows inau-
gurate their annual traveling season
this year with the most costly gor-
geous and elaborate display ever seen
under the enormous canvas.
The Sells-Floto Shows have grown
to such magnitude as to necessitate
enlargement in every department. And
this famous amusement institution is
proud of its home and w hile oif tour
is ever a standing reflection of Den-
ver's industry and genius.
The menagerie alone is nearly dou-
ble its former capacity and during
the winter the old world has been
scoured thoroughly for wild animals
and strange beasts of every country
and now this attractive and highly ed-
ucational department is complete in
every particular. The cages vans
chariots and tableaux cars are all new
and especially attractive in wondrous
architecture conceded by all show
men to be unequalled by any other
firm corporation company or syndi-
cate. It has taken many years and sev-
eral fortunes to place this department
on such a lavish magnitude to tickle
the fancy and satisfy the mind of the
generous public. When witnessing
the grand street display from which
no revenue is derived only the grat-
ilication to please both young and old
children remember that what
follows in the big canvas is
more meritorious. In the main tent
many new features will surprise end
delight the beholder daring; acrobatic
acts will till out a long and worthy
program more than enough to satisfy
and please the most exacting critic
and astonish everyone else. Two per-
formances are given daily rain or
