What a Million Mothers Avoid More than a million careful mothers have intuitively known the dangers of poisonous fly destroyers. They have known that such preparations contain arsenic in deadly quan tities. They have realized the peril to little children. For those woo have not learned of these dangers, we quote from an editorial in the December issue of The Michigan State Medical Society, which comments upon 47 reported cases of poisoninglast year as follows: "Arsenical fly poisons are as dangerous as the phosphorous match They should be abol ished. There are as efficient and more sani tary ways of catching or killing flies. And fly poisons, if used at all, should not be used in homes where there are children, or where children visit."
