Xearly 2,(K)0 Cases Reported
to Borough Health
E. It. Butler, borough health offi
cer in an interview with a reporter
this morning expressed his opinion
that the epidemic has apparently
reached its height, and while deaths
are occurring the number of new
cases reported is apparently decreas
ing. With the many precautions
taken by the people continued, and
the continuation of the good work
being done at the Emergency Hos
pital and by the Red Cross, the Boy
Scouts and the many individual vol
unteers he believes the epidemic will
soon abate.
Up to lute last, niglit there were
1.863 cases reported. Although there
were live deal lis at the Emergency
Hospital lust night and this morn
ing, there were fully as muny or
more patients discharged as cured,
and many patients throughout the
borough were pronounced as being
out of danger or entirely cured.
Although many have gladly re
sponded to the call for volunteers at
lite Emergency Hospital, there is
still need for more men to act. as
assistants in the good work being
done there.

Nothing New—Simply The Old Grip, or la Grippe That
Was Epidemic in 1889-90, Only Then It Came
From Russia by Way of France and This
Time by Way of Spain.
Go to Bed and Stay Quiet —Take
A Laxative—Eat Plenty of
Nourishing Food—Keep Up
Your Strength Nature
Is The Only "Cure".
Spanish influenza, which appeared
in Spain in May, has all the appear
ance of Rrip or la grippe, which has
swept over the world in numerous
epidemics as far back as history
runs. Hippocrates refers to an epi
demic in 412 11. C. which is regarded
by many to have been influenza.
Kvery century has had its attacks,
lieginning with 1831, this country
has had live epidemics, the last In
There is no occasion for panic—
influenza ilseif lias a very low per
centage of fatalities—not over one
death out of every four hundred
cases, according to the N. C. Hoard
of Health. The chief danger lies in
complications arising, attacking prin
cipally, patients in a run down con
dition—those who don't go to bed
soon enough, or those who get up
too early.
Grippe, or influenza as it is now
trilled, usually begins with a chill
followed by aching, feverishness and
sometimes nuusea and dizziness, and
a general feeling of weakness und
depression. The temperature is
from 100 to 104, and the fever
usually lasts from three to Ave days.
The germs attack the mucuous mem
brane, or lining of the air passages
—nose, throat and bronchia! tubes
—there is usually a hard cougli,
especially bad at night, often times
a sore throat or tonsilitis, and fre
quently all the appearances of a
severe head cold.
Go to lied at the flrst symptoms,
not only for your own sake but to
avoid spreading the disease to
others—lake a purgative, eat plenty
of nourshing food, remain perfectly
quiet and don't worry. Quinine,
asprin or Dover's Powder, etc., may
be administered by the physician's
directions to relieve the aching.
Hut there Is no cure or specific for
iriflunza —'he disease must run Its
course. Nature will throw off the
attack If only you keep up your
strength, The chief danger lies
In the complications which may
arise. Influenza so weakens the
tiodtiy resistance that there is dan
ger of pneumonia or bronchttls de
veloping, snd sometimes Inflamma
tion of the middle ear, or heart
affections. For these reasons, it Is
vary Important that the patient
remain in bed until his strength
returns—stay In bed at least two
days or more after the fever has
left you, or If you are over 50 or
not strong, stay In bed four days
or more, according to the severity of
the attack.

The EmergonCy Hospital last
night sent forth a call for pneumo

Cross chapter as usual was giud to

About fifty women were working

glad lo have women assist In the
work. In this work only women can

New Regulations at
Emergency Hospital
Captain Batley has to-day issued
the following new regulations for the
Emergency Hospital, and asks that
all physicians and all other workers
in the epidemic bear them in mind:
The Emergency Hospital will re
ceive only diagnosed cases.
Patients whose cases have been
diagnosed will be received at the hos
pital for treatment, but the inform
ation concerning them must Include:
name, age, full address: name of at
tending physician, religion of pa
tient, and name of nearest relatives
or persons to be notified should oc
casion demand.
! All cases in boarding or lodging
houses must be reported to the hos
! pital authorities Immediately.
D. Frank Knoderer, of the under
j taking firm of Dunkel and Knoderer,
| was taken ill this morning with a
slight attack of influenza, the prob
able result of overwork. The work
j of the firm is being conducted by
| his partner and assistants,
j . Charles Smith, of 22 North Fourth
j street, watchmaker for the Ideal
| Jewelry Company, has been declar
ed out of danger and rapidly on the
j road to recovery.
Mrs. Ruth Rohrer, wife of Landis
I Rohrer. the ice cream manufacturer
| of South Second street, who was ill
: for the last several weeks, has fully
j recovered. The whole Rohrer farn
j ily had been stricken with influenza.
| All are now fully recovered.
John Winn, of the borough police
! force, was taken ill last night with
'an attack of influenza. Policeman
| Demiter Kajjanic who was ill for
some time with influenza reported
on duty last night.
The Rev. James C. Thompson, rector
of St. James' Catholic Church who
was ill for the last several days with
a heavy cold has recovered. Although
j several of the Sisters of Mercy of St.
I James' parish are already doing ex
[cellent work at the Emergency Hos
pital, Father Thompson too has vol
unteered his services.
In order to stimulate the lining
of the air passages to throw oft the
grippe germs, to aid In loosening the
phlegm and keeping the air pass
ages open, thus making the breath
ing easier, Tick's Vapoßub will be
found effective: Hot. wet towels
should be applied over tho throat,
chest and back between the shoulder
blades to open the pores. Then
Vapoßub should be rubbed in over
the parts until the skin is red
? n ,hickly and cover with
two thicknesses of hot flannel cloths
Leave ilie clothing loose around the
neck as the heat of the body liber
ates the ingredients in the from of
\upors. These vapors, inhaled with
n , !lth 'v. L ' arry the medication
directly to the parts affected. At
the same time, Vapoßub is absorbed
thru and stimulates the skin at
tracting the blood to the surface
and thus aids in relieving the con
gestion within.
Evidence seems to prove that this
is a germ disease, spread principally
by human contact, chiefly thru
coughing, sneezing or spitting So
avoid persons having rolds—which
rtHnkfn avoidinK crowds -common
dunking cups, roller towels, etc
Keep up your bodily strength bv
plenty of exercise in the open air
and good food. Above all. keen
from colds, as colds irritate the lin
ing of the air passages and render
them much better breeding places
for the germs.
Use Viok's Vapoßub at the very
first sign of a cold. For a head
'■old. melt a little Vapoßub in a
spoon and inhale the vapors or
better still, use Vapoßub in a ben
zoin steam kettle. If this is not
available, use an ordinary tea-kettle.
Fill half-full of boiling water, put
in half a teaspoon of Vapoßub from
time to time —keep the kettle Just
slowly boiling and inhale the steam
NOTE. Viek's Vapoßub is the
discovery of a North Carolina drug
gist, who found how to combine, in
salve form, Menthol and Camphor
with such volatile oils as Eucalyptus,
Thyme, Cuhebs, etc.. so that "when
the salve is applied to the body
heat, these ingredients are liberated
in the form of vapors.
Vapoßub is comparatively new In
New York State and New England
and a few Western States where it
Is just now being Introduced, but
In other sections of the country It
Is the standard home remedy In
more than a million homes for all
forms of cold troubles. Over six
million Jars were sold last year. It
Is particularly recommended for
children's croup or colds, since It Is
externally applied and therefore can
be used as freely as desired without
the slightest harmful effects. Vapo-
Rub can be had in three alses at
all druggists.
