The House-Fly, Disease-Carrier.

The House-Fly, Disease-Carrier. This is not a scientific treatise but a book for the general reader. Nevertheless, it is accurate and complete from a scientific standpoint. Probably none of our American entomologists is better fitted to write such a book than Dr. Howard. His first publication on this subject was in 1896, when he contributed the chapter on the life-history of the fly to a bulletin on household insects published by the Department of Agriculture. In 1900, he published a long paper on the transmission of typhoid fever by flies. This volume can be commended to all who wish to learn the life history, personal habits, dangers and means of exterminating the common house-fly, the constant companion of man for centuries. Unfortunately, the character of the fly does not improve with acquaintance. His origin is not only lowly but filthy. He is prolific to an extent beyond the reach of ordinary figures.
