that the Grand Duke Alexis of Russia had
sneezed. This would not have been Tory
startling if be had only sneezed once; bnt he
sneezed and sneezed without cessation. Then
others of the royal blood began to sneeze,
and the courtiers, and the army, and the peo
ple all were sneezing and running at the eyes
and the noee, now hot with fever and now
cold with chill, the epidemic spreading all
the while till ail Russia had the "Russian In

the matter and sneezed, too. All over Ger

Then the army took the disease, and regi

corps, army, soldiers who bad faced French
bullets in 1870, general who had led them,
ail gave way before "la grippe. "
What an opportunity this would have been
for France to step in and get back Alsace
and Lorraine. But there was not time
enough. La grippe, like the Prussians in
1370, crossed the Rhine and was soon march
ing, like Moltke, on Paris. The French peo
ple succumbed like the Rnsssians and the
Germans. On the streets, in the cafes, in
the stores, people were stricken by the un
pleasant disease. In one shop alone in Paris
there were six hundred employes down with
IVho would wish to shop in that store?
"How much r asks the customer, taking
a handkerchief. The girl behind the counter
seizes it conTulsively and applies it to her
"How much?" The only answer k a sneeze.
No one can buy at such a place. The only
comfort is for shoplifters, who might carry
off the wbele store without being preyed ted.
All through the Sixteenth century there
was Influenza in Europe. Nothing is said
about America, but the probability is that
most of the people, being savages, were not
civilized enough to take the disease. In 1510,
LOT, 15C2, 1574, 1580 and 1593 it spread over
Europe. It began again in 1658, in 1060, in
1675 and in 16U1 In the Eighteenth century
it reappeared in 1708, 1713, 1TJ9, 17i, 1733,
1742, 17C1 and 1775. The present century
opened with it. There was an epidemic in
1800, which was continued in 1800, 1831, 1838,
1837, 1843 and 1847. Then it disappeared till
The Chicago Tribune thus scores the doctors
for not knowing how to get the diimasn in
their grip and check its career:
"All of this time, though the doctors
haven't been able to restrain the raids of in fluenza,
they have tried to get even with the
disease and uphold the honor ef their profes
sion by having recourse to the most frightful
reprisals in the way of terminology. The
name 'influenza' is simply an etymological
compromise. It is nothing more or lees than
Italian for 'influence,' and so simply begs the
question. But look at some of tbixo terms of

A lawyer who makes a specialty of crim

trials. His looks are against him, and his
clients generally get the extreme punishment
that the law allows. They say he is like ne

"Not guilty," was his plea. He had no
money and no friends to look after his case.
The court assigned my unlucky friend to de
