INFLUENZA EPIDEMIC ON THE WANE ( After making a complete survey 'of the Spanish influenza - situation in Norwich Health Officer B. J. Brophy stated on Tuesday evening , that he thought the epidtmio to be waning as there was a perceptible decrease in the number , of new cases reported and also fewer- cases of pneumonia. Dr. Brophy stated that he is of the opinion that the epidemic was at its eignt on Monday and from now on the people will only use care the disease may be reduced to only a few cases within a short time. On Tuesday afternoon there was a meetipg ' of the city officials and Health Officer Brophy to discuss the influenza epidemic. The policy of closing the schools was discussed but it was tnought that the schools could be kept open as the epidemic was on the wane. The watchfulness of the teachers in noticing the health of the children will be . a precaution. The teachers are instructed to keep watch of the pupils and. at the first sign of any symptoms of the disease to send the child to his home for treatment with instructions to remain there a week.

Stone ( former Taft ville boy), now with the American ex peditionary forces in France, to Joseph Wood, Taftville, is as follows: Aug. 23. 1918. Dear Mr. Wood: Just a few lines to let you - know that t am well and hope this letter will find you the same. I am up in the lines now and, believe me, it is some hell here. We have been here quite a few weeks now and have seen quite a bit of fighting. I think we have the best gun crew in the battery, and we certainly have the best gun. We try to send two shots over the line to their one. We call our gun Lightning, for that is the name given it by the colonel who inspected us before we left C for the lines. He had us go through a 20-minute gun drill for him and said SERGT. GEORGE A. STONE. to shops and any employe who Js taken sick should immediately, ' -leave and go home. - The people of Montville have been greatly distressed over the fact that they have been without physicians for the nast few days as Dr. Harrington has died and Dr. M. E. Fox is ill, thus leaving them without medical aid. Dr. John J. Donahue of the Grand View Sanatorium has volunteered his services to the people of Montville and vicinity and he will receive, calls at the office of Dr. Fox In that place during the epidemic Owing to the crowded condition ;of the Backus hospital and the scarcity of nurses, no visitors will be .allowed at the hospital during the next few days. The public is requested not to call the hospital by telepjjone with in quiries about patients, except in seri ous cases as the hospital staff is tax ed to the utmost to take .care of all its imperative duties and snould not have its time taken by "needless calls. On Tuesday there were 92 patients at the hospital which Is the largest number in its history. The largest previous number at one time was:?2. it was the best drill he had seen for a good many years, and suggested that we name the gun Lightning. The boy adopted the name at once and now we have the word Lightning painted on each side of the gun in white letters. All the men in the crew are boys from home. I picked them all out myself so that I could look out for them. They would do anything for me, and I certainly would do anything for them I cannot tell you which sector I am on, but it is one of the busiest and where the heaviest fighting is going on. It is some fighting, too. They nearly got me the other day with shrapnel, t just ducked in time, but the poor fellow behind me got it, and it. made a hole in his arm as big as your fist. Shrapnel is worse than a shell, for a shell makes a clean hole, but shrapnel tears you up some. It is an awful sighU to see a fellow ripped open by shrapnel. I saw one. and can tell you some very interesting stories if God ever lets me get back home. One officer here was literally torn to pieces. I have not as yet received The Bul letins you are sending to me, but hope that I may later. Trust I may hear from you soon. Good luck to you. Your soldier friend, SERG'T. GEORGE A.

Jn view of more than double the usual number of advance applications, it seems cer tain that the entering class will be three times . the customary enroll ment. Supplement these with former students who are planning to return and the list grows to close to 400 stu dents, as compared with an average before the war attendance of 200 or a little more.. In addition, the war de partment has asked the college to vir tually double the combined number of hours devoted to military and class instruction.. . President Charles L. Beach has pre pared for just such a situation by overhauling the mess quarters for op eration on the cafeteria plan, provid- ng a separate dining room for wo men students, and getting the dormi tories in shape to be used as bar racks. Prof. Beach first notinod .the war department that Storrs could ac commodate 400 men in die Student's Army Training Corps and then took immediate steps to prepare for just the contingency that lias arisen; namely, twice as many student to get twice as much instruction or in other words running the college at about four times its normal capacity. Under an agreement with the war department the college has contracted to furnish quarters, mess, and in struction to be paid for by the gov ernment. The war department con tracts to provide uniforms, equip ment, officers, and a private's pay for every student inducted into the S. A. T. C. Highly specialized intensive courses have been outlined bv a spe cial committee of the faculty. Major Wm. F. Flynn has been detailed by the war department to taKe command of the Storrs unit. Vice Col. J. S. Parke has been transferred to Boston college. LOUIS H: JEROME IS FATALLY INJURED Louis H.

This dries the scalp, makes the hair brittle, and is very harmful. Just plain mulsifled cocoanut . oil (which is pure and en tirely greaseless), is much better than the most expensive soap or anything else you can use for shampooing, as this can't possibly injure the hair. Simply moisten your hair with water and rub it in. One of two teaspon fuls will make an abundance of ?ich. creamy lather, and cleanses the hair and scalp thoroughly. The lather . rinses out easily, and removes every particle of dust, dirt, dandruff and ex cessive oil. The hair dries quickly and evenly, and it leavesjt fine and silky, bright, fluffy and easy to manage. -You can get mulsifled cocoanut oil at most any drug store. It is very cheap, and a few ounces is enough to last'ereryone in the family for months. XVr advert! exactly na It la If You Are Patriotic you must be economical when you buy your clothes.
