At an added precaution there was no session of the school Monday, and there has been none since. Owing, no doubt, to l he precautions taken, no cases of Influents have developed on Doug las Island. The situation in Juneau Is looking much brighter. The number dis charged from the hospitals as cured Is now much greater than the en trance of patients, and It Is thought that the worst of the epidemic baa passed. As yet there has not been a single death in this section of the country from the flu. As Is perfectly natural with the ban on for all public amusements. Douglas Island hss been exceedingly quiet the past week, and we have absolutely no social doings to chron icle. Wo believe there was one little party In town the middle of the week but most of the entertslnment was In Iho open air, and as there was con ?lderable flu medlcino in evidence, no danger of Infection has been an ticipated. With the lifting of the ban in Ju icau. It is thought that the quaran tine that has been on on Douglas Island will now be of very short du ration and it is predicted that every thing will be running as usual next ivcek.
