Fly Killer. A gentleman claims to have discovered a remedy for flies in the common sweet pea. We give it for what it is worth. In the rear of his store was spread a newspaper, and on the paper had been placed a bunch of sweet peas. At least a thousand dead flies were lying on the paper in the immediate vicinity of the bunch of flowers. I threw these here by chance," he continued, and in about ten minutes I happened to notice that every fly that alighted on the flowers died in a very short time." Even as he spoke a number of insects which had stopped to suck the deadly sweet had toppled over dead. They alighted with their usual buzz. stopped momentarily, quivered in their legs, flapped their wings weakly several times, and then gave up the ghost.
