OFFICIAL NEWS OF CITY AND COUNTY
FLU NOT TO STOP
WAR WORK DRIVE
QUOTAS ALLOTTED AND CHAIR
MAN NAMED—TO BEGIN
SATURDAY NOV. 11
Boys and Girls to Have Part in Rais
ing County Fund of
"The Flu can't stop the United War
Work Campaign from being a glor
ious success" say the workers in the
drive for funds which commences
Saturday November 11. The county
chairman is a flu patient and the flu
ban on meetings may make speeches
during the drive an impossibility, but
the drive is going through.
The reason the committees are so
sure of success is the fact that this
drive for funds is of inter
est to every person in the county.
The $20,460 quota is to go to the
seven welfare organizations which
are providing comforts, cheering and
aiding the morale of our soldiers and
sailors at the front. Everyone feels
like digging deep into his pockets for
such a cause. Anything is too little
to do for the boys who are suffering
hardships at the front.
The scope of the drive has been ex
tended so as to afford the boys and
girls of America an opportunity to
do their share in this great work of
caring for the men. This an "earn
and give" campaign and money
pledged can be paid from money
earned during the past summer,
money to be earned, or money saved
from regular allowances. The
money raised by the boys and girls
applies to the county quota.
There is to be a meeting Wednes
day, November 8, if permitted by the
county health officer at that time, to
be held in Colville in the court house
at Ip. m. All the local chairmen
who can be present will meet at this
time to talk over plans.
The central campaign committee
eludes: Chairman, W. Lon Johnson;
publicity chairman, Miss Frances Rob
inson; chairman of speakers' bureau,
H. Wade Bailey; chairman of Victory
boys' and girls' campaign, E. E. Elli

VISITS FRENCH CAPITAL
The latest letters from the "mimeo
graph bljigade" received by Colville
friends If Ted Richardson, tell the
story offan interesting trip to Paris,
and also! a battle after their return.
The Pary episode is related by the
letter-writer for that particular week
"When we left where we were be
fore we came to where we are now,
we were all given twenty-four hours
leave in the "city where nobody
cares." It all seemed so strange—so
mud like a dream —this stepping into
a Ford in the midst of Battle, hungry,
(censored) and tired of life and a few
hours, after landing in the midst of
the most wonderful city in the world;
we can't remember much about it.
George swears he saw the Eiffel tow
er and Ted and Hard hold a cherished
memory of dinner at the Hotel Con
tieital. Marcy and Reggy refuse to
commit themselves but Marcy. showed
up twelve hours late and Reggy says
he understands now why the French
fight so hard, and we noted in all the
prominent papers, under the police
court items, mentions of "Major
Race's" visit to the capital.
"Seriously, Paris is more beautiful
than anything we have ever heard or
read about it. Marcy having lived
there before the war, acted as guide,
and after grooming and a big feed,
he loaded us in one of those two-cyl
inder oriental taxicabs and showed
us the town.
"We spin through the boulevards,
swing around the Arch of Triumph,
over the wonderful bridges of the
Seine and turn in the direction of the
Eiffel tower. The sights are won
derful in the^jftprninK sunlight. Gor
geously atulptuA'l'! buildings and
statues meet the eye at every
turn. The Trocadeio and fountains
are wonderful. We swing around
through the Tuilleries gardens, spin
around the Louvre, and over to No
trt Dame. Our eyes are everywhere
fascinated by the wonders made by
French hands hundreds of years ago.
The Hotel de Ville (city hall) is a
work of art, as are also the columns
of Alexander and too many others to
mention. After a while we drive
down the boulevard President Wilson
and decide to walk a bit. We stop
the taxi, pay the bill, wake up Marcy
and depart. After all we had read
about the awful bombarding and
bombing of Paris—especially in Ger
man communiques—we were sur-
prised not to find a single wrecked
building or thoroughfare.
"Not having opportunity, rags, or
wherewithhal to doll up, and having
come direct from the front, we stood
out in marked contrast to our gallant
comrades who are so heroically hold
ing down the Paris front. Every
where we see them, fearlessly going
about their daily duties, faultlessly
made uniforms, white collars, English
walking sticks, polished boots and sil
ver spurs, tired and careworn from
the day's battle. Among them min
gle hundreds and hundreds of brave
Y. M. C. A. secretaries and workmen
caring for their comforts and admin
istering to their wants. Brave sol
diers of all nations have thronged
here to heroically defend the civil
population of our besieged cap
ital, and are gallantly attending the
ladies first. Big, brawny, pink
cheeked officers and men doing their
bit, guarding the welfare of some poor
French maiden, defiently conducting
her through the dangerous boulevards,
parks and cages of this war-ridden
city. Our hearts go out to them in
their peril We feel like siackers in
their midst and are ashamed and con
science stricken at merely whiling aw
ay our time at the front when we
could be helping in this great work.
It would indeed never occur to a
stranger that less than thirty miles
from this care-free, pleasure hunting
city, there was waging one of the
most important battles of the war."

MRS. ESTER DAVIS VICTIM OF
DISEASE SOON AFTER
Epidemic Abating Now in Towns—
Situation More Serious
The first death from Spanish influ
enza in Colville occurred Tuesday
night when Mrs. Ester Davis, who
had but recently arrived with her
husband and three children to make
her home here, died of the disease.
The circumstances surrounding her
death make a pathetic story which
has aroused the sympathy of Col
ville for the bereaved family.
Mr. and Mrs. Davis with their three
children were the guests of Mrs.
Davis' sister, Mrs. A. 0. Thompson,
while preparing to move into their
newly purchased property in South
Basin. Their household goods were
not yet unpacked, when Mrs. Davis
was taken ill with Spanish influenza.
Her three children were ill, as were
also the members of the Thompson
family, making ten patients in the
crowded home, all suffering from in
fluen/.a. One of the Davis children
is reported to be in a serious condi
Mrs. Davis was thirty-five years
old and was born in Minnesota.
Surviving her are her husband Seth
Davis and three children, her mother,
Mrs. Inga Linblad of Spokane, throe
brothers and three sisters. The
brothers are Anton Linblad of Col
ville, Alfred Linblad of Canada and
Julius Linblad of California; the sis
ters are Mrs. William Lawrence of
Spokane, Mrs. Walter Davis of Ore
gon City and Mrs. A. O. Thompson of
Colville. Private funeral services
were held Thursday at the McCord
Undertaking Parlors, Rev. J. S. Bell
Situation Still Serious
It is probable that it will be at
least two weeks before schools,
or other public meeting places will
be open. The influenza situation is
thought to be worse in the country
districts, but to have abated some

Appeals to Children
James Petty appeals to the boys
and girls to help fight the flu, saying.
"In as much as the .state and
county health officers have issued an
order closing all schools, churches,
picture shows and other public meet
ings, it would .seem to be incumbent
upon the 2,660 boys and girls in
Stevens county to join this warfare
to fight the flu in the following
1. By .staying at home as much as
2. By using every precaution to
avoid taking cold.
3. By avoiding all unnecessary
calf* on neighbors and friends.
4. By going alone when on neces
sary errands and returning home a.s
soon as possible.
5. By attending no parties or
dances, and not congregating in
6. By dispensing with fishing, hunt
ing and joy rides.
7. By doing everything you can to
8. By going to bed and .staying
there, if you have symptoms, until
you are released by your doctor or
By a coordinated effort of this
to a marked degree.
Not even the flu ban could keep the
youth of Colville from meeting
Thursday night to plan Hallowe'en
mischief. It would take more than
fear of influenza to make Young
America forget to congregate on this
night of all nights. No seriou.s
damage has been reported, most of
the "gangs" being content with mis
placing various vehicles or following
the time honored custom of soaping
windows. The Masonic temple was
having a difficult time of it Friday
morning trying to maintain its
gravely dignified air, with a wagon
resting on its front steps, almost up
to the door. Hallowe'en parties
were out of order because of the flu.
"Perkins is down and out, isnt he?"
"Oh, yes—he told the other day he
was paying cash for everything."

It seems likely that Justices Mitchell,

the great laboring vote of the state
is pledged to W. H. I'emberton, who
is also indorsed by the farmers, pro

big interests of the state, including
