America f SAVE YOURSELF AND OTHERS Influenza Causing Heavy Toll of Life is Spread by Secretions From Nose and Mouth?Ad? vice on Its Prevention. The serious shortage of physicians and trained nurses in Virginia, and the inability of many families to se? cure medical nnd nursing care make it imperative that the nature of In? fluenza and the methods of prevention as well as the home care of the sick should be generally understood. The State Board of Health, therefore, is undertaking by every means possible ; to furnish this important information. Preventive Measures. Avoid crowds, common drinking cups and putting Into the mouth lin? gers or other objects recently soiled by the secretions of the mouth. In? sist that everybody cover the mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing. Wear a gauze mask over the mouth and nose when attending the sick, or I on necessary visits to them. Keep ' houses and offices freely ventilated, and keep your body resistance at its best by regular meals and abundant rest. Symptoms of Influenza. Sudden onset, usually in from 12 i to 48 hours after exposure, charac? terized by chill or chilly sensation, rise of temperature, sligi-.t sore throat, Stuffiness about the head, aching, am. marked weakness. Cure of Sick. Average cases require little drug treatment. Quiet in bed, a laxative, liquid nourishment and an abundance of water arc essentials. Cases show- j ing shortness of breath, painful cough and pinkish sputum should be seen | by u physician. Precautions For Patient. Use strong drugs only when pre? scribed by a conscientious physician. Aspirin and other pain relieving drug* i are valuable in the early surges, but j only to relieve pain. If used promis? cuously or too long they are harmful. Deaths are likely to occur from the unwise use of such drugs. Influenza is characterized by marked poisoning which weakens the heart muscle. It is, therefore, of great importance that the patient remain quietly in bed long enough for the heart and other vital organs lo have recovered from the effect ol* this poison. This means from two lo six days, according to the severity of the attack. The impor? tance of this precaution cannot be over-emphasized. Redeem Your W. S. S. Pledge.

CHAPMAN, Red Cross. REMAINS OF MRS. R. R. HENRY The remains of Mrs. R. R. Henry, who died at the home of her son, Randolph Henry, in Roanokc on. last Saturday, were brought here for bur? ial Monday afternoon, and were laid to rest in the Jcffersonvillc cemetery beside that of her husband, who died several years ago. The remains were accompanied to Tazewell by the sons, Robert, Ashby and Randolph, and daughters, Mrs. Samuel W. Williams, Mrs. Sam C. Peery, jr., and Mr. Peery. Mrs. Dr. Gillespie, the other daughter, was un? able to be present on account of ill? ness. Mrs. Henry was ill only a short time, and died from a heart clfection from which she bad been a sufferer for years. Rev. W. W. Arrowood, the former pastor of the family, was in charge of the service at. the grave. A Tribute to Mrs. Henry. A noble and good woman was bur ? ied in the cemetery at Tazewell yes? terday. Mrs. Henry was born, I believe, in Culpepper County, Virginia,?when, I do not exactly know, but know enough to say that her birth was be? fore the stirring times which trans? pired in that historic county. It was at Brandy Station, in Culpepper that the greatest battle of modern times between horsemen was fought, with Pilzhugh Lee as commander of the Confederate legion. Mrs. Henry was an Ashby, a first cousin of General Turner Ashby, thai high-souled gallant Ashby, who sleeps in glory's grave. Sometime in the sixties she married Robert R. Henry, and in the early seventies they came to Wise County, Virginia, to seek a living; both she and her husband be? ing left in poverty by the result of the war. There they began their struggle, strangers in a strange land, her husband being a young lawyer, she being charged with the duties of a young wife and mother. They then came to Tazewell in the year 1870, j where they continued to live until ' after the death of her husband. Strangers they were, both she and her husband, but they rapidly gained the respect of their new neighbors, holding it in the highest esteem to the day of their death. Mrs. Henry was a noble woman, devoting herself to her husband and children?the soul of hospitality; brave and good. Intensely religious, a Presbyterian heart and soul,?and that soul needs no dead, cold rocks to commemorate her goodness and her memory. It is by her heroic womanhood that she will be remembered.

MRS. A*. J. TYNES, MRS. S. C. GRAHAM, MRS. G. W. ST. CLAIR, Committee. MRS MUSICK DEAD. The papers announce the death of Mrs. Sam Jack Musick, at her home in Lynehburg. Mr. Musick is well known here, in his native county, Russell, where ho has a host of rela? tives and friends. He is proprietor of the Piedmont Business College, Lynehburg, and has been busy, night and day, for years putting his school on a firm footing. His wife was a true helpmeet, in? deed, and this affliction is a sore trial and disappointment. He has the sympathy of a host of friends. VISITOR FROM UTAH. Mrs. D. H. Peery, of Ogdcn, Utah,' is on a visit to her old home and' many relatives in this community, i She has her headquarters while here j with the family of C. H. Peery and. his sons at North Tazewell.

Her visit hero, after some years, is greatly enjoyed, all around. TAZEWELL rer Two Mi p Entertet] MORE THAN IS ASKED FOR As Usual, Tazewell County Ov er Subscribes Fourth Loan by Hundred .Thousand ? Fine Work by Committeemcn. The campaign for tho Fourth Lib? erty Loan in Tazewell County re? sulted in u large over-subscription, belieted to be about $130,000. The county's quota was $560,000. As is usually the case the work of putting the loan over was done in a large measure by the patriotic bank? ers of the county, who labored long and faithfully to make it a success. The committee from the Jefferson (villo banking district, of which W. K.I. Peery was chairman, did line work, and made a systematic can vass of every person in the district. Mr. Peery feels very grateful lo the committeemcn who so faithfully dis? charged their duties. They were all busy business men, but laid aside their personal affairs and went lo work for the Government. A statement of the Jeffersonvillo Hauing District shows that the dis? trict oversubscrbed its quota by 8108,200. The district's amount was subscrib? ed through the Hank of Clinch Valley and the Tazewell National Hank in. follows: Stutenieni of Subscriptions for Taze? well County.

The bankers?well, they deserve far more gratitude from the people than they get. They were all en? thusiastic in the sale of bonds, and were patriotic in helping men to ob? tain money with which to buy. With? out their splendid help the county would not have gone "over the top." The district chairmen, without a single exception, worked hard, and a small number of men supported them loyally. Their persistent and hard work put our county among the honored counties of the State, and we are all proud that we are citizens or Tazewell. I am embarassed for words with which to express to those who, at my earnest request, took part in the sale of bonds. I cannot say "1 thank you," for they did not work even for the government, but for the brave boys who are fighting to maintain our liberties, and to give freedom to the oppressed world. I can only con? gratulate all who took -part in the splendid campaign, that they have an approving conscience for service well rendered. C. R. ROWN, County Chairman. LARGE FIGURES. The amount of money contributed ?loaned, during the last eighteen months for war purposes, is not known exactly. The four loans amount to something in the neigh? borhood of twenty billion dollars.

This amount does not include the amounts contributed to the Red Cross, Y. M. C.

M. C. A. and six other associated societies do? ing war work, for the one hundred seventy million dollars to bo raised : during the week of this drive. Virginia's apportiment is one and a half million dollars, and district No. 1, is allotted $77,51)0, of this appor? tionment. I have called a meeting of the chair men .of this district to he held at Nor? ton on the 25th inst., nt 3 p. m., to outline the plan of campaigning. In as much as the Y. W. C. A., is designated as one of the seven as? sociations to receive and disburse a certain per cent of this $170,000,000, 1 our women are expected to take great? er interest in this campaingn than in any proceeding drive for war worn being led by Mies Lucy Terrell, di-1 rector of the Woman's Division. Our colored people will take a con- j spicious part in the drive under the leadership of J. H, McGrcw, state di? rector of colored division. President. Wilson has endorsed nnd directed this plan of United War Work. These seven orgnizntions thus working in harmony towurd the one great end of ministering to humanity take the sharp corners oft* the relig? ious prejudices of the homo forces as has already been done for our boys "over there!" The fellowship ol sacrifice and suffering is the only fel? lowship that is worth while. What we give in this great cause will benefit those who receive it, re? gardless of the motive behind the gift. The giver will bo blessed in proportion to the sacrifice made by him. Yours not only for service, but for Sacrifice. J. N.

SEVEN AGENCIES JOIN IN DRIVE Protestants, Catholics and .lews Will Campaign Together To Raise Millions For Work in American Army Abroad. The great drive to raise $170,000, 000 for relief work in the American army will he begun on the lltb of next month by the Y. M. C. A., Y. W. , C. A., National Catholic War Council of the Knights of Columbus, Jewish Welfare League, War Camp Commu? nity Service, American Library Asso? ciation and the Salvation Army. The drive will be a new thing un? der the sun. For the first lime Pro lestants, Catholics and Jews, forget? ting all thoir differences will line up shoulder to shoulder, welding their individual organisations together in their common devotion lo the bays in the cantonments ami over there. This amalgamation of the seven great agencies engaged in war work is one of the line dovolpmonts which have been brought about by the war and under the wise guidance of ['real dent Wilson. Togoiber these seven organiza? tions represent a work Hint is stag? gering in its proportions. They have more than 15,000 uniformed workers, standing shoulder to shoulder with the boys ovcrj slep of the way from home lo the front line trenches. They operate more than .'1,11011 buildings nnd ship 500 tons of supplies to the boys ill Franco every week. Fifteen miles of film set sail for the other side each week under their direction and the regular weekly attendance of soldiers and sailors at their motion picture shows is more than 2,600,000. The llibles furnished to the boys Mine the war broke out would, if I piled one on another, make a pile more than twenty miles high. "Morale," said Napoleon, "is as other factors In war as three to one." Ity which be meant-1 hat one man who is kept contented and happy is belter than three men who are discouraged und homesick. It is the business of these seven great agencies to help maintain morale. They are keeping up the line fighting edge of our boys, und by their ministration, helping to put added power into our army ami navy and so to hasten the hour ol victory when they will bring our boys, home again. WHAT THE Y. W. C. A. DOES. Never before in warfare have wo? men played so active a part in rein? forcing the lighting men and in re? lieving men from other work that they might light. Thus, the field of the Young Women's Christian Asso? ciation in war work has been a great Dne. In America the association's most striking welfare project has been the establishment of hostess houses in the camps where tho men may receive visiting relatives. Army officers have asserted that these houses do much to elevate the plane of a training camp and to dispel the homesickness which causes desertions and lowers morale. In the war zone the Y. V/. C. A. pro? vides social workers, recreation lead? ers, physical directors and cafeteria managers for the thousands of Amer? ican women nurses, Signal Corps girls, telephone operators, and other English-speaking women employed with the American forces. The as? sociation also does welfare work for the girls employed in many of the Kreuch munition plants. The Y. W. D. A. maintains centers and restau? rants for these American women en? gaged in work in support of the Gov? ernment. Dur Hello Girls Keign as Queens on French Lines. Ninety-nine are in France. Addi? tional units are on the way. Those already there are pretty well scattered though there nrc two or three large units. The hnppicst unit?at least the girls claim they arc happiest unit ?is stationed in the City of Discon? tent, so called because it is far be liind the battles lines and practical? ly every one there is anxious to get to the front.

Will Troubles. GERMAN PLEA JS P^ED.0N Begging Huns Will Have to Tell Their Troubles to the Al? lies on the Western Front, President Wilson Says. President Wilson hus informed Uio Gorman government that ho hus transmitted its correspondence, to him seeking an armistice and peace to the allies, with the, suggestion that if those governments uro disposed to olfoct peace upon tho terms and tho principles indicated, their mili? tary advisers and tho military ad visors of the United States bu askod to submit Hie necessary terms of such an armistice as will fully pro? tect the interests of the peoples in? volved, llo says that should such terms of armistice be suggested, ac? ceptance by Germany will alford tho best evidence of her unequivocal ac? ceptance of the terms and principles of peace. I he president's reply to tho lnsi German note was made public Wed? nesday night in Washington, and was transmitted to lierlin through tho Swiss legation immediately. II says that having received the solemn and explicit assurance of the German government that it unre? servedly accepts the lorins of peace ami principles enunciated by him and that the desire to discuss tho de? tails of the application emanated no. from those who hitherto dictated the Herman policy, but from ministers who speak for the overwhelming mu joiiiy oi the German people, and having received explicit promise that tin humane rules of civilized warfare tvdl be observed by tho German armed forces, the president feels ho cannot, decline to take up the ques? tion of an armistice with thu allies. 'I he president say . that significant and important au thu constitutional i . seem lo be which are spoken of by the Gorman foreign secretary, if does not appear that thu princi? ple of a government responsible to the Gorman people has yet been ful? ly or permanently worked out. Ho reiterates that the nations of tho world do not mid cannot trust tho word of those who hitherto been the musters of German policy und gives warning that if tho United Stales must deal with the military masters and the monarchical auto? crats of Gormuny now or later, it must demand not peace negotiations but surrender. HELP FOR STARVING CHIL? DREN. The campaign for the Fourth Lib? erty Loan that went so far "over tho top" it made a big rift in the cloud of war, is finished.

Wo uro glad, but let uu not let tho Hounds of rejoicing dull our ears lo othey cries. We still have much to do. In France that loathsome serpent, the Hun, has left in Iiis slimy trail hundreds of fatherless und, in many cases motherless children. Who will feed them if we do not? Who will clothe them if wc do not? It will bo impossible for impoverished, duvasat ed France to caro for nil of them. Their little pale, pinched faccB are turned lo us in utler helplessness und pitiful appeal. Will we allow them to untrer for the bare necessities of life while tho rosy, happy children of our lunds are sheltered and safe, with a security that was partly tho price of these French children'a fa? thers paid by giving up their lives. Suppose the Kaiser had begun his program for world-conquest with an i-.ttiick on America, your children might now bo hungry, half clothed or? phans. There is a rule called "Gold ?.?n"; apply it here. This orphan relief work is in tho charge of Marshal Jotfro, which fact ipenks for its importance in tho eyes jf those in nuthority. A list of tho names and addresses of a number of iheso orphans hns been sent, to the local chairman of the fund. Thirty six and one half dollars will sup? port one of these children for a year. A. larger sum is spent on many chil Iren of America for toys and candy. Several of our soldiers, from pri? vates up, have "adopted" and sup? porting French orphans.
