believed that Influenza la always

germs being carried with the air along
with the very .mall droplet, of mucus,
expelled by coughing or sneezing,
forceful talking, and the like by one
who already ha. the germ, of the dis

In the air In the form of dust coming
from dried mucus, from coughing and
sneezing, or from careless people who
spit on tha floor snd on the sidewalk.
As In most other catching diseases, a
person who has only a mild attack of
the disease himself may give a very
severe attack to others."
What should be dons by thoss who
catch the disease?
"It Is very Important that every per
son who becomes sick with Influenza
should go home at once and go to bed.
This will help keep away dangerous
complications and will, at the same
time, keep the patient from scattering
the disease far and wide. It Is highly
desirable that no one be allowed to
sleep In the same room with the pa
tient In fact, no one but the nurse
should be allowed In the room.
"If there Is cough and sputum er
running of the eyes and nose, care
should be taken that all such dis
charges are collected on bits of gause
or rag or paper napkins and burned.
If tho patient complains of fever and
headache, he should be given water to
drink, a cold compress to the forehead
and a light sponge. Only such medi
cine should be given as Is prescribed
by the doctor. It is foolish to ask the
druggist to prescribe and may be dan
gerous to take the so-called 'safe, sure
and harmless' remedies advertised by
patent medicine manufacturers.
"If the patient Is so situated that he
can be attended only by some one who
must also look after others In the fam
ily, It Is advisable that such attendant
wear a wrapper, apron or gown over
the ordinary house clothes while In the

Will a person who has had Influenza
before catch the disease again?
"It Is well known that an attack of
measles or scarlet fever or smallpox
usually protects a person against an
other attack of the same disease. This
appears not to be true of 'Spanish In
fluenza.' According to newspaper re
ports the King of Spain suffered an
attack of lullueuza during tbe epi
demic thirty years ago, and was again
stricken during the receut outbreak In
How can one guard against Influ

kinds, It Is Important that the body be
kept strong and able to fight off dis

ing a proper proportion of work, play
and rest, by keeping the body well
clothed, and by eating sufficient whole
some and properly selected food. In
connection with diet, It is well to re
member that milk Is one of the best
all-around foods obtainable for adults
as well as children. So far as a dis
ease like Influenza Is concerned, health
authorities everywhere recognize the
very close relation between lu spread
and overcrowded homes. While It la
not alwaya possible, especially la
times like tbe present, to avoid such
overcrowding, people should consider
the bealtb danger and make every
effort to reduce the home overcrowd

IN THE GREAT WAR
General Franklin Bell's true state
ment that "the army Is not a place
of refuge tor thieves" has been sup
plemented by letters In the World
from Mrs. Balltngton Booth and
Thomas M. Osborne. Both show that
not every man In prison Is by nature
criminal; that prisoners can be pa
triotic; that to such men the army Is
a road to reparation. Mrs. Booth ha.
a service flag with 60 stars for
graduates from a single prison en
gaged In the service. Happier still
Is Mr. Osborne; over 1000 men under
his eyes have passed from Ports
mouth prison Into the navy and are
serving It with honor and fidelity.
Great Britain and France have drawn
to their armies prisoners worthy of
service, some of whom have been
decorated for heroism. The French
Foreign Legion, which we are rightly
honoring In this country, has in the
past included many men with ree

How's Your Automobile?
Now, more than ever before, you must watch your
automobile and keep it in'perfect order. Automobiles are
hard to get, parts are getting harder to get every day. So
watch your car to see that it is kept in good repair. Don't
neglect the valves, don't run with an engine knock. Keep
the play out of the rear axle.
