(Correspondence of the Associated Press) An instance of cowardly treachery on the part of a captured German officer who' had been wounded and who had been of fered help by an American officer is told by Lieutenant Edward Nichols, of Jamaica, N. Y. After the last big drive by the allies -in August, Lieutenant Nichols 'was placed in charge of a company of soldiers whose task it was to clear the field of American dead and wound ed. Although his duties did not re quire him to aid the German wounded on the field until the Americans were disposed of, Lieutenant Nichols, who is only 23 years old, went to the as sistance of a German infantry officer who seemed more than any of his comrads to be in need of succor. The lieutenant in the act of un t fastening his canteen and giving the wounded man a drink of water when the German drew a revolver while the unsuspecting American's face was turned, and aimed it at the head of his rescurer. Before he could pull the trigger, however, a quick-witted American sergeant plunged his bayonet through the German's heart. The" German's act was condemned even by his cap tured comrades.

HUTCH CONE HURT American Officer Who Spent His Boy hood Days in Ocala Was on the Ill-Fated Leinster Lake City, Oct, 16. (Special) A former Columbia county man was a passenger on the ill-fated steamship Leinster when she was sunk by a submarine. Capt. Hutch R. Cone is in charge of the American Naval Airship , service and suffered a broken leg in this dis aster, swimming , ashore in that con dition. He is the oldest son of Mr. D. N. Cone of Benton, Columbia coun ay, was born and raised at that place and afterwards became a cadet at An napolis, having risen from time to time to the rank of captain. Captain Cone was in the famous battle of Manila Bay with Admiral ewey. He is also the brother of Dr. Dan Cone, of White Springs, Mrs. Will Mathis, of White Springs, and Jack Cone, of Benton, a cousin of At torney Fred C. Cone, of Lake City, besides having otherwise a large con nection in Lake City and Columbia county. Jacksonville Metropolis The above brings to mind to Ocala's older citizens one of the tragic chap ters in the history of the town. It has been thirty years ago, but many here can remember the shoot ing of Chief of Police George Hous ton Cone by a desperado. It was. a case of murder pure and simple, and the citizens were -very indignant with the sheriff for not making a prisoner of the assassin. Marshal Cone had a desperate wound, but there was a chance of sav ing him, if the bullet, which lodged under his spinal column, could be extracted. Several physicians, among them Dr. E. Van Hood, worked night and day to save him. v Dr. ; Hood, accomnajned by Hutch Cone, then a mere boy, took the wounded man to White Springs, and there nursed him almost three months. Their efforts were unavail ing and the wounded man passed away.- . W '.'T "' A strong fellowship, which yet ex ists, had meantime sprung up be tween young Cone and Dr. Hood. Cone gave the doctor a valuable book, a standard medical authority, which he has since read so many times tnat it shows no signs of wearing out. Dr. Hood showed us the book this morn ing, with i'H. I. Cone," written in a large rambling hand on the flyleaf.

(Correspondent of the Associated Press) Marshal Foch is the only man who knows just what move he is planning for tomorrow oi next week or next month, but there is growing in the fighting armies a feel ing that the German is not going to be permitted to rest this winter. Fight in good weather and dig in for the bad has become almost an accepted principle in this war. Men trained in the- theory of war "prior to 1914 and in its practice since have agreecT every year to the uselessriess of attempting to drive the . enemy from its trenches once the rain and sleet and snow set in, but there are indications that the initative taken by the allies in July will be retoined regardless of bad weather. If Marshal Foch calls upon his army" groups to continue jumping at the Germans they will and they will do it as they did in he early part of the war for, in addition to the rein forcement that America has provided, there is a spirit revived. The French are fighting with confidence restored and the British are going "in with greater enthusiasm than had been ap parent for many months. They are not merely "carrying on." They are slashing away like one does when he knows there is another one right by his; side hitting just as hard. The, Germans are not exhausted. They are not so, badly fed. Their clothing is not bad and they prob ably have plenty of ammunition not withstanding the enormous stores they have abandoned. But there is something wrong and men who have commanded troops in the recent Franco-American-British offensives are incluined to believe it is the reali zation by the people of Germany of the hoplessness of keeping up the fight against a foe who obviously-is growing stronger instead of weaker. German newspapers, official and semiofficial documents and private lelters that occassionally come to the hands of the allied troops no longer contain sneers regarding the Ameri can assistance. It is recognized that the American army cannot be dispos ed of so easily. - BUY LIBERTY" BONDS Prompt delivery of nrescrlDtions is the watchowrd here. Tell yon physic ian to leave them with us.

Epidemic Probably Not 8panlsh In Origin Germ 8till Unknown Peo ple Should Guard Against "Droplet Infection" Surgeon General Blue Makes Authoritative Statement. Washington, D. C.-(Special.) Al though King Alphonso of Spain was one of the victims of the Influenza epi demic in 1893 and again this summer, Spanish authorities repudiate anj claim to Influenza as a "Spanish" dis ease. If the people of this country do not take care the epidemic will be come so widespread throughout th'e United States that soon we shall hear the disease called "American" influ enza. .In response to a request for definite Information concerning Spanish Influ enza, Surgeon General Rupert Blue of the D. S., Public Health Service has authorized the following official Inter view: . ' What Is 8panlsh Influenza? Is it something new? Does It come from Spain? "The disease now , occurring In this country ' and called 'Spanish Influen za resembles a very contagious kind of 'cold accompanied by fever, pains Coughs and 'Sneezes v Spread Diseases As Dangerous as Poison Gas Shells Is- the head, eyes, ears, ba'ck or other parts of the body and a feeling of se vere sickness. In most of the cases the symptoms disappear after three or four days, the patient then rapidly recover ing. Some of the patients, however, develop ' pneumonia, or inflammation of the ear, or meningitis, and many of these- complicated cases die. Whether this so-called 'Spanish' influenza is identical with the epidemics of Influen za of earlier years Is not yet known. "Epidemics of Influenza have visited this country since 1647. It is Interest Ing to know that this first epidemic was brought here from; Valencia, Spain. Since that time there have been numerous epidemics of the dis ease. - In 1889 and 1890 an epidemic of influenza, starting somewhere in the Orient, spread first to Russia and thence over practically the entire civ ilized world. Three years later there was another flare-up of the disease. Both times the epidemic spread wide ly over the United States. , ""Although the present epidemic Is called 'Spanish influenza, -there Is no reason to believe that It originated in Spain. Some writers who have studied the question believe that the epidemic came from the Orient and they call at tention to the fact that the (Hermans mention the disease as occurring along the eastern front in the summer and fall of 1917." How can "8panlsh Influenza" be rec ognized? There Is as yet no certain way in which a single case of 'Spanish influ enza' can be recognized. On the oth er hand, recognition is easy where there is a group of cases. In contrast to the outbreaks of ordinary coughs and colds, which usually occur in the cold months, epidemics of Influenza may occur at any season of the year. Thus the present epidemic raged most intensely In Europe In May, June and July. Moreover, in the case of ordi nary colds, 'the general' symptoms (fever, pain, depression) are by no means as severe or as sudden in their onset as they are in influenza. Final ly, ordinary colds do not spread through the community so rapidly or so extensively as does influenza. "In most cases a person taken sick with influenza feels sick rather sud denly,. He feels weak, has pains in the eyes, ears, head or back, and may be sore all over. Many patients feel dizzy, some vomit. Most of the pa tients complain of feeling chilly, and with this comes a fever in which the temperature rises to 100 to 104. In most cases the pulse remains relative ly slow. "In appearance one is struck by the fact that the patient looks sick. His eyes and the inner side of his eyelids may be slightly bloodshot, or 'con gested, as the doctors say. There may be running from the nose, or there may be some cough. These signs of a cold may not be marked; never theless the patient looks and feels very sick. :;''-.-.; "In addition to the appearance and the symptoms as already described, examination of the patient's blood may aid the physician In recognizing Span ish Influenza, for it has been founjfr that in this disease the number of white corpuscles shows little or no In crease above the -normal. It Is possi ble that the laboratory investigations now being made through the National Research Council and the' United States Hygienic Laboratory will fur nish a more certain way in which indi vidual cases of this disease can be recognized.' What is the course of the disease? Do people die of it? "Ordinarily, the fever lasts from three to four days and the patient re covers. But while the proportion of dtatns in the present epidemic has generally been low. In some places the outbreak has been severe and deaths have been numerous. When death oc curs it is usually the result of a com plication." v What causes the disease and how Is It spread? "Bacteriologists who have studied in fluenza epidemics In the past have found In many of the cases a very small rod-shaped germ called, after its discoverer, Pfelffer's bacillus. In other cases of apparently the same kind of disease there were found pneumococd, the germs of lobar pneumonia. Still others have been caused by strepto cocci, and by others germs with long names. fa S "No matter what particular kind of germ causes the epidemic, it is now believed that influenza Is always spread from person to person, the germs being carried with the air along with the very small droplets of mucus, expelled by coughing or sneezing, forceful talking, and the like by one who already has the germs of the dis ease. They may also be carried about in the air in the form of dust coming from dried mucus, from coughing and sneezing, or from careless people who spit on the floor and 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 done by those 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 xoom with the pa tient. In fact, no one but the nurse should be allowed In the room. "If there is cough, and sputum or running of the eyes and nose, care should be taken that all such dis charges are collected on bits of gauze or rag or paper napkins and burned. If the patient complains of fever and headache, he should he 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 be 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 sick room and slip this off when leav ing to look after the others "Nurses and attendants will do well to guard against breathing in danger ous disease germs by wearing a simple fold of gauze or mask while near the patient." 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 influenza during the epi demic thirty years ago, and was again stricken during the recent outbreak in Spain." . How can one guard against Influ enza? . "In guarding against disease of all kinds. It is important that the body be kept strong and able to fight off dis ease germs. This can be done by hav 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 -remember 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 its spread and1 overcrowded homes. While It Is not always possible, especially In times like the present, to avoid such overcrowding, people should consider the health danger and make every effort to reduce the home overcrowd ing to a minimum. The value of fresh air through open windows cannot be over emphasized. "When crowding is unavoidable, as in street cars, care should oe taken to keep the face so turned as not to In hale directly the air breathed out by another person. "It is especially Important to be ware of the person who coughs or sneezes without covering his mouth and nose. It also follows that one should keep out of crowds and stuffy places as much as possible, keep homes, offices and workshops well air ed, spend some time out of doors each day, walk to work If at all practicable In short, make every possible effort to breathe as much pure air as pos sible. "In all health matters follow the ad vice of your doctor and obey the regu lations of your local and state health officers." "Cover up each cough and sneeze. If you don't you'll spread disease."
