THE WAR ON MOSQUITOES.
"When The Eagle a few days ago
suggested editorially a campaign for
the extermination of the mosquito In
Bryan It wan In earnest desperately
In earnest. We believed then It
could be done and still believe a
properly conducted campaign would
entirely eliminate the mosquito from
Aryan or reduce bin presenre to a

ladlea of the Civic League and the
member a of the Commercial Club
talcing bold of the matter so vigor-
ously and planning awn an aggres-
sive thorough and systematic cam-
paign. They .are starting In the right
way and The Eagle offers Its columns
for the furtherance of the campaign
In every way possible. For the edu-
cation of the people to the Importance
of the movement for announcements
of campaign plans calls for meetings
methods to be employed In destroying
tbe pests etc.
It can be done all right. A lady
made Cleveland one of the large
cities of the t'nlted States a flyless
city and Ilryan can also be made fly-
less and moH(iiltoless. Her campaign
against the fly was so similar to that
needed here against both (lies and
mosquitoes and will be ho helpful to
ns In the task before us we quote it
from the Independent as follows:
"In the anti-fly campaign of the lust
nine years the stereotyped Hlogan
'swat the fly has been overworked.
'l Bwatting the fly In practice never got
further than reducing the total num-
ber of flies by the smalll number kill-
ed. The fly-swatting crusades did
eerve a purpose however and tba'
was to educate the people as to its
danger and secure their co-operation
In applying the only means for the
fly's elimination the elimination of
its breeding places.
"The achievement of making a
large city In the United States the
first 'flyless town' was accomplished
through the Initiative of Dr. Jean
Dawson Instructor of biology In the
Cleveland Normal Training School
for Girls. In the beginning or the
Benson she employed the swat-the-fiy
tactics of other years paying 10c per
hundred for all flies killed by Cleve-
land's school children who were paid
for a half million delivered files. This
was merely to attract their attention
- and arouse their enthusiasm.
" 'Fly Week' in Cleveland last year.
May 11 to IS marked the opening of
the sanitary campaign. Dr. Dawson
organized most of the 2"000' school
children of the city Into sanitary
forces. The boys were organized Into
the Junior Sanitary l'ollce and the
girls ns Sanitary Abies. .More than
2000 Hoy Scouts co-operated y irii
"It their several school districts
the boys working In trios through
the sections or blocks allotted them
inspected every nook and cranny.
Wherever unsanitary conditions were
found and they were pretty genera!
In the beginning a report of the ex
act contritions was entered on print-
ed forms which were turned In dally
to headquarters from which notices
to Mean up' were sent to each de-
"On the next inspection tour made
a few days later If It was found that
the notices had been disregarded t lie
boys voluntarily turned to and made
a clean up of the premises on their
own account placing the fly-breeding
refuse in piles for removal by the city
wagons. That was In the early days
of tbe Inspection work. The news-
papers were given and printed a list
of tbe places giving street address
name of owner or tenant and nature
of business where fly-breeding mn-
terlal was found with a detailed de-
scription of the unsanitary conditions
found. It was not desirable publicity.
Merchants and hoiiseholdors alike got
Imsy with rake and shovel. In only
isolated instances was a sccoild

tions of each district the girls as

In three minute-- of time. If tbe num-
ber was above the allowed limit for
that class of place a black mark was
noted on tbe printed slip on which
they reported their duds to headquar-
ters and such places were generally
found among those mentioned as hav-
ing an excessive number of flies.
.Many nierchnnts advertised a 'flyless
store' and the girls saw to It that
they made good.
"The reports of the Aides early
showed many flyless stores and res-
taurants. Later Dr. Dawson together
with several city officials made nn
Inspection of the market places. Hut
two flies were found one In a bakery
at Central Market and one on a lun li
counter at the Sheriff street market.
Toward the close of the season Mayor
llaker Issued a statement in which
he said that Dr. Dawson had made
Cleveland a practically flyless town.
"Dr. Dawson succeeded In getting
a new sanitary code enacted last year
that provides for the removal of all
fly-breeding refuse every seventy-two
hours and whlih shall be stored
pending removal In brick concrete
or metal receptacles having a water-
tight bottom and Insect-proof covers.

A strong effort Is being made by
the members of the House to have
Governor Ferguson submit for con-
sideration at the special sessmn the
matter of redisricting Texas Into
new Congressional districts. A peti-
tion to this effect Bigned by ninety-
one members has been presented to
the Governor who has agreed to sub-
mit the matter when assured that a
majority of the Senate also favors
redlstrlctlng. If the measure Is sub-
mitted the special session may be
long drawn out ns the matter of re-
dlstrlctlng appears to be a vexing
question or rather one difficult of
solution. It has been often tried dur-
ing the past four years' and many
bills bills with almost every con-
ceivable combination of the counties
Into districts have been offered but
none of them got through. The am-
bitions of present members of Con-
gress and the ambitions of various
and sundry would-be Congressmen
Interposed objections. Texas Is en-
titled to eighteen members In the Na-
tional Congress and with fully five
hundred men wanting to hold those
eighteen Jobs It Is going to be n hard
task to cut up the State Into districts
satisfactory to all who deem tliem-
selves vitally concerned.
Representative Levelling has in-
troduced u resolution in the House
for an opinion from the Attorney
General as to the rights of the Leg-
islature to enact woman suffrage by
statute. Many members are opposed
to the agitation of the suffrage ques-
tion during the special session and
do not believe the Levelling resolu-
tion will receive the necessary two-
thirds to have It submitted to tbe At-
torney General. Kven If the resolu-
tion should pass and the opinion ask-
ed for should be affirmative The
Eagle cannot see where it -ould
avail anything. The mutter Wh..

lar session and wns defeated on sev-

like a useless waste of time and
money. Legislative wrangles while
they may furnish entertainment for
the spectators yet they are not free
exhibitions by any means.
The Broadway car wns very crowd-

At the door the young man looked

of the blushing bride. "Io you sup-

Former President Taft says the
present business activity of this coun-
try Is artilliial and that if the manu-
facture of war material should cease

ment will be taken accordingly. He-
