Go to Bed aad Stay Quiet?Take a Laxative?Eat Pleaty of Noeriah ing Food?Keep Your Strength?Nature I* the "Cure." ALWAYS CALL A DOCTOR. ? O OCCASION FOR PA?TIC. Spanish influenza, which appeared in Spain in May. ha? all the appearance of grip or la grippe, which haa ?wept over the ?/Orld in numerous opidem.es aa far back aa history ?-uns Hippoc rates refers to an epidemie in ??2 B. C. which ia regarded by many to have been Influenza. Every ce?.'ury T,as had it? attacks. Beginrlng with 1831, thi? country has had five epidemics, the last in 1S89-90. There is no occasion for panic?in fluenza itself has a very low percen tage of fatalities?not over one death out of every four hundred cases, ac cordili--: to the N. C. Board of Health. The chief danger lies In complications arising, attacking principally patienta in a run-down condition?those who don't go to bed soon enough, or those who get up too early. THB SYMPTOMS. Grippe, or influenza aa it is now called, usually begina with a chill, fol lowed by aching, feverishness and sometimes nausea and dizziness, and a general feeling of weakness and de pression. The temperature Is from 100 to 104. and the fever usually lasts from three to live days. The germs attack the mucous membrane or lining of the air passages?nose, throat and bron chial tubes?there Is usually a hard cough, especially bad at night, often times a sore throat or tonsilitis, and frequently all the appearances of a severe head cold. THE TREATMENT. Go to bed at the flrst symptoms, not only for your own sake hut to avoid spreading the disease to others ?take a i'urgative, eat plenty of nour ishing food, remain perfectly quiet and don't worry. Quinine, aspirin or Do ver's Powder, etc.. may be adminis tered hy the physician's directions to relieve the aching But there is no cure or specific for influenza?tha dis ease must run its course, but Nature will throw off the attack If only you keep up your strength. The chief dan ger lies in the complications which may arise. Influenza ao weakens the bodily resistance t.iat there Is danger of pneumonia or bronchitis develop ing, and sometimes inflammation of the middle ear. or heart affections. For these reasons, it la very important that the patient remain In bed until hi? strength returns??tay ln bed at least two days or more after the fever haa left you. or if you are over 60 or not strong stay ln bed four days or more, according to the severity of the attack. EXTKRNAL APPLICATIONS. In order to ?timj'ate the lining of the air passages to throw ofl the ? grippe germs, to atd in loosening th' j phlegm and keeping the air passage open, thus making the breathing eas 1er, Vick's VapoRub will be found ef fectlve. Hot, wet towels should h applied over the throat, chest am back between the shoulder blades ti open the pores. Then VapoRub shouli be rubbed ln over the part? until thi skin is red. spread on thickly and cov ered with two thicknesses of hot flan nel cloths. Leave the clothing loosi around the neck, a?; the heat of th> body liberates the ingredient? in th form of vapors. These vapor.? In haled with each breath, carry th medication directly to the parts af fected. At the same time, VapoRul is absorbed through and stimulate: the skin, attracting the blood to th surface, and thus aids in relieving th. congestion within. HOW TO AVOID THE DISEASE. Evidence seems to prove that this 1 ?a germ disease, spread principally b; ?human contact, chiefly through cough I ing, sneezing or spitting. So avoic persons having colds?which mean avoiding crowds?common drinkini | cups, roller towels, etc. Keep up you .bodily strength by plenty of exercis? I In the open air, and good food. Abov. j all. keep free from colds, as colds irrl j tate the lining of the air passage and render them much better breedini places for the germs. Use Vick's VapoRub at the ver flrst ?ign of a cold. For a head cold melt a little VapoRub in a spoon an? Inhale the vapors, or better still, us VapoRub In a benzoin steam kettle. I this Is not available, use an ordinar tea-kettle. Till half full of bollini | water, put in half a teaspoon of Vapo Rub from time to time?keep the ket ?tie just slowly bollins and inhale th steam arising. ?VOTE. Vick's VapoRub is the dis covery of a North Carolina druggist who found how to combine, in ealv form. Menthol and Camphor with eue! volatile oils as Eucalyptus, Thym? Cubebe, etc.. so that when the salve i aiplled to the body heat, these ingre dient? are liberated in the form of va pors. VapoRub is comparatively new 1 New York State and New Englan. and a few Western States, where It I Just now being Introduced, but ln th other sections of the country it Is th standard home-remedy in over a mil lion homes for nil forms of cold tro'j ble?. Over six million iars were so!. laat year. It Is particularly recom mended for children's croup or cold.? since It is externally applied an therefore can be used as freely as de sired without the slightest harmful ef fat-ct?.

EMPIRE OF HUNS TOTTERING WHILE THEIR ARMIES REEL continued raou pai-, e one thority bectowcd upon Max, the throne heir of the "mere grand duchy" of Baden, would inevitably bolt. Altogether, a transformation of the empire Into a republic, involv ing: as It also does abolition of the other federated crowns, reduelo?" them to "mire states," is believed too volcanic to be brought about by anything short of a repetition of the Russian revolution. Thus, consti tutional amendments affecting a trstnsfcrence of the Kslser's powers to the Reichst??; and Bundesrat, and possibly the abdication of the Em peror ln favor of August Wilhelm. i? regarded here as a more likely development. Whether the crown prince would quietly resign himself to such a fate la another Important question. If he Is still the leader, or one of the chieftana of the military party, an attempt at a coup d'etat would surprise no one?. t.hsnre of Peae?. Meanwhile, history Is believed to be making strides with seven league boots in the empire. All indications sre that. Irrespective of what dras tic changes, if any. may occur, tht Berlin government la bent on hang ing on to the thread of peace possi bly offered by tbe lnterchscge of notes. Even before President Wilson's not? ha? reached Berlin. oflldalty Wllhelm strasse's mouthpiece. the Nord Deutsch? Allgemelna: Zatltung. hastens to ?ay: "We have reaaon te ballava that tha peace step will be continua-rd." Significant in this connection, it 1? believed, is the Koelnlsche Zeitung"s assertion that "only military reasons could compel us to accept President Wilson's conditions." This indirect admission of th? mis erable Germnn military situation, ac centuated also by the Kaiser's repeti tion of the word "grave" in his ever* recurring appeals for unity aad endur ance, 1? further backed up by tha un* Uatually trank communiques of the war office. Never before in the war had the war offlce conceded a "breach" In the German Line?M it did yeeterday?without some bCAstful modification in the next aenlence In same of the Berlin newspapers there U talk of German demand for "counter guarantees." such as tht evacuation of all German colonies.

Late dispatches tonight aay the aaa? s'on will taite place tomorrow, through earlier report.? said it was scheduled for Saturday. The arrival of Ludendorff In Berlin Is reported. Rumor had it that he ha? broken down physically and resigned. More likely it is. however, that he 1?

In diplomatic quarters both here and In London and Paris the be lief persiti? that an Ottoman surrend er Is imminent. The Dutch government la reported a? having contemplated an offer to the two groups of belligerent? to "help" them in getting together. Holland, like Spain, has for years foftered the ar dent desire to act as mediator, not only for humanitarian reasons, but owing to the prestige obviously ac cruing from such a function.
