WAUSAU STILL IN ITS GRIP Influenza Cases Number Fully a Thou sand in Wausau—Many Deaths “Can I help? What can I do?” Thus spoke a young miss as she stepped in to the Health office at the city hall. It was a surprise to 'hose who heard her. She was so young and apparent ly care free. But she had uttered the word that was the keynote of the work now going on—helpfullness. It is a peculiar truth that the peo ple who make up a community and nave a casual acquaintance with each other, are practically strangers in some respects, and it takes some big situation to bring them to really know each other. The fact has been and is being practically demonstrated in Wausau during the present epidemic. Wausau citizens are united in one big family, or army, whose slogan is, “Fight the Flu.” Men and women from every profession, business and calling are putting their best and earnest efforts foremost in the work. Doctors and nurses are working day and night as are also volunteer work er, who go into the homes. The mem bers of the Motor corps have worked tirelessly, one of their chief duties being the carrying of food to some of the homes of those who are ill. And this food has been just as tire lessly prepared by experienced cooks at the High school, Training school and in private homes. The hospital forces have segregat ed a part of their buildings to influ enza and pneumonia patients, and pending operations have been post poned that the greatest possible care might be given those afflicted with the diseases. Perhaps those who are real ly the heroes and heroines of the work and deserving of the greatest commendation are the volunteer workr ers. Among them are men, women who are wives, teachers and girls who are employed and unemployed, who have voluntarily given their services to go into homes and care for the sick, cook and clean for the family and have not shrunk from any menial task whereby they might be of help. A man who stands high in the com munity has done just this thing. Al so his wife, both working in an un demonstrative and unobtrusive way in '•liferent homes where sickness sur rounded them and death often hov ered near. Another woman entered a home of people unknown to her where both parents lay ill and held a little dying baby in her arms until it breathed its last, her daughter doing the housework for the rest of the chil dren. Teachers have washed dishes, swept and mopped, and still found time to bathe the children. There are many such cases and we who help from the safe seclusion of our tomes are moved to lift our hats to the brave workers in the volunteer force. Every one is doing his or her utmost to help; the fountains of deep feeling have been touched and through it all we are learning something of the real sympathy which lies in hearts where one would least suspect it. And each one is working in unity and harmony with his neighbor. A spirit of help fulness permeates the air. The al leviation of suffering is the big idea now, and working closely together through it all, we observe the tender hidden springs in our fellow men anu find the milk of human kindness in the breasts of those whom we have considered worldly frivolous or thoughtless. Life is a wonderful thing, but life, lived in appreciation of the good in those about us, is glori ous. Meals are being furnished about one hundred people on the west side. These meals are taken around by the motor squad in cans; cooked at the Agricultural school room. On the East Side more than that number are be ing fed, in the same manner, the meals being cooked at the High school. The cans are afterwards collected and sterilized. John Dern, who has been at home for tPe past two weeks, ill with the influenza, is now convalescing and will soon be about. Mrs. Dern and son, John, Jr., have also been very sick witli the disease, hut are now much improved. Mark Beilis and family have been on the sick list with the influenza, but all are now “out of the woods” and improving. In many of the establishments in our city, masks are being worn by all employes. Written, authorized and paid for by George A. Runkel. Wausau, Wis.

He was taken to St. Mary’s hospital at the outset. Three days afterwards pneumonia developed. He is a very sick man but is improving with hopes of recovery. The schools, churches, Sunday schools, moving picture houses, all lodges, etc., remain closed going on for the third week. Wausau is sim ply trying to keep the disease from spreading. be open for the public. It included all mercantile establishments, saloons and general places of gathering. It was ordered that only as many pas sengers as could be seated be allowed on street cars. Dr. L. E. Spencer is aiding the health department and many good sug gestions of the department are being put into practice with the result that now the number of cases is being les sened. B. L. Schuster, health officer, issued an order Friday, to close all places of business Saturday evening at six o’clock, with the exception of drug stores, hotels and such places as must Rev. Fr. E. P. O’Toole, pastor of St. James’ church is at St. Mary’s hospital experiencing an attack of the influenza. The latest reports find him improving. Perhaps the city which has been the hardest hit by the influenza near Wau sau, is Marshfield. Over 1,000 cases were reported there last week. L. E. Blackmer of the University Ex tension has arranged a card index system for tabulating cases, which will be a great help. The infirmary has been opened and a number of patients are being cared for there as well as in the gymnasium of the High school. Green Bay physicians injected one hundred doses of anti-flu vaccine with in four hours after its receipt from Rochester, Minn. A. M. Petersen, the undertaker, is going through a siege of the influen za at his home on Maple street, being attacked Friday. Will. Hussong, Albert Wendorf, An ton Goetgman all of the fire depart ment, are ill with the influenza. Mrs. Elmer Lucas is in St. Mary’s hospital with the influenza. She is improving. Help is badly needed and all who can give their assistance are implored to do so. Joseph Mayer was laid up last week with a touch of the prevailing illness. Miss Irene Strupp has been ill since Friday. She is improving. HALLOWE’EN “The goblins will get you if you don’t watch out.” Thursday is Halowe’en; the night when ghosts, and uncanny elves are round about, when grinning jack-o’-lanterns gaze at you from every side; when spooky goblins walk about and the house resounds with spirits rapping on the windows. All is weird and startling and you jump at every sound which is a great joy to the small boy who is probably watching you from the outside. It is this night that the sarr j small boy gets in his work by perpetrating his an nual jokes and getting even with the world in general. Soaping windows, turning over lawn seats, cutting down clothes lines and numerous other pranks constitute the night’s program, and it is a glorious satisfaction to the boy after being sungly stowed away in bed to feel that all these awful jokes have been successfully accom plished and that he has ‘‘come it” over everybody. We know the feeling for we have celebrated Hallowe’en our selves. Ghostly parties and weird en tertainments are usually a social feat ure of Hallowe’en but owing to the prevailing epidemic all social gather ings are debarred. We imagine, how ever, that the ghosts will roam as us ual and that the youngsters wHI pat ter up and down the street in the same old way.

Ar rived at last night in the rain. The hotel was full and we went to a French hospital to sleep. There were eleven of us and we had iron cots and blankets, and slept fine. When we got to the Y hut they were having an entertainment and it was crowded. This morning I went out and got my papers and assignments; ai 1 o’clock one of the secretaries told me there was a man going to drive to where I was assigned, so I put my trunk, bed roll, cot, organ, and suit case in the back of an eight- cylinder and we drove fifty miles through a beautiful country. The driver was a grandson of Major-General Bell, who is the O. C. at one of the big camps in Kansas. Every little ways during our drive we went through small villages, some having little rivers running through them and you could see chateaus in the distance. I wouldn’t have missed that ride for a good dial. After start ing I found that m.- driver was not going to the place where I wanted to go,‘ so I hail t< tak f a train for twen ty kilomiters. At the station I met a party of entertainers going to the same town so we went together in one compartment and arrived at this beau tiful little city where this group will give concerts for six days. We came to a very nice hotel and had a real genuine dinner, which was fine. Af terwards the men in the party went over to a large building, being used as a Y entertainment place where there was a program going on, but all we heard was a colored band playing jazz music, which was very good. We ate our meals at the Y. M. C. A. hostess’ house and they were fine. Last Sun day I ate dinner with Mrs. Bickett, wife of the governor of North Caro lina, who is over here on a lecture tour. There are lots of prominent people over here doing something. September 14. It is now Saturday night yester day it rained all day.

Got up this morning and found that a car of canteen' material had come in during the night, so we went to the freight yards and unloaded it and trucked it to our warehouse, which took until noon. Last night five girls, the Haroun Sisters, Players, gave an entertain ment in the Hall and the boys simply went wild just to see five real live American girls. The girls play vio lin, piano, clarinet and cornet and one sings. I am eating at the mess with the boys now and it is good; today for dinner we had salmon loaf, breatl, butter and coffee and all the stewed prunes you could eat. | The French are very happy today, as well as the boys for yesterday was when our army did some big things at the front. The colored band of thirty-six pieces, which is stationed here, led a parade today. In it was the 1920 class of boys, a bugle corps of French boys and a French band with a great many others. They all went to the park and had games and a concert, after their parade. 9:00 p. m.—Just got back from church. There was a fine crowd and the boys sung fine. The services were held in the chapel of a large Catholic church. At the hospital the other day I met Dr. Geo. Whiteside, from Ste vens Point, who has charge of this unit.

The wards are in tents and it is very clean wards are in tents and are very clean ord. Sept. 20. I have got the old “Market Place” fixed up fine for our opera house now. It is a well built building 120 feet long by 75 feet wide, with booths around the edge where people come and spread out their wares. Only a few were using it now whin the weather is warm, but they say in the winter the booths are all full. I got a detail of six men to paint the win dow panes a’i over with a dark blue water paint, so no light shows thru, had it wired for electric lights and al so had foot-lights put on the stage, which we built in, so we now have quite a decent opera house where we will give the soldiers some pleasant evenings. We had a concert there to night. for the first time. The 53rd Regulars band gave a fine program, assisted by Mile. Calet, a French girl, whi is a “Y” employe. Last YYednes day I drove to a little town where there are a number of men logging and running a mill and I met a Lieut. Nichols, who is a friend of the Mont gomery boys and Harvey Schofield, al so found C'has, Wickstrom, who lives on the Town Line road. He has been sick and thinks his mother is worrying about him, so phone them and say that he is in perfect health and has one of the health'est places in France to live in. Sept. 12. Rap the canteen all day, as the men were all ofF on business; it is fine waiting on the boys, handing out smokes and chocolate and “kidding” them along. We had another concert tonight in the new “opera house” and after all the boys came In who wanted to, we let the French people in and the building was packed. There must have been about 1,000 people there. Sunday, Sept. 22. 1 ran the canteen all day again, but closed up from 10 to 11 while I went to church and led the singing. I picked* a preacher out of the crowd to talk to us for a while and we had a fine crowd out. I eat at the “mess” all the time now and know lots of the boys by name. The more I see of the soldiers, the more I like the boys. Tuesday, Sept. 22.
