TO THE PEOPLE OF KENTUCKY. The State Board of Health, the United States I'ublic Health Service and the Red Cross arc united in this appeal to every citizen of Kentucky to hcln in lessening the spread of In fluenza nnd the development of Pneumonia. Nearly four hundred thousand Kcntuckians suffered from these dis eases last year, and fourteen thou sand died from them. Deaths and sickness can be greatly lessened this year if each individual will do his part in avoiding them. Have yourself and family and every one dependent upon you inoc ulated at once. Nearly five hundred thousand have been inoculated in Kentucky. Very few of these have developed influenza, and less than a dozen have died from pneumonia. Material for inoculation is furnished free by the State Board of Health. Go to your doctor and be inoculated. If you arc not able to pay for tho service, go to your Health Officer and have it done without cost. Avoid visiting the sick, especially if they have colds or sore throats. It is frequently difficult even for a doctor to tell a bad cold from mild influenza. Pneumonia, in nearly every case, is following neglected mild influenza. If you take cold, go home for the safety of the commun ity, to a well ventilated room by your self, for the safety of your family, and to your bed for our own safety. Send for your doctor, but If you arc unable to get him, take a dose of Castor oil, drink water freely, and eat soups, eggs, and other soft food, called to taste. Avoid whiskey. It neither prevents nor cures influenza. Stay in bed until the cold is well, and if you stay by yourself the chances nre jou will net develop pneumonia. If you do these things nnd have been inoculated, you nrc practically cer tain not to develop pneumonia. Cover 'jour noke and mouth with your handkerchief when sneezing or coughing, nnd persuade others to do so. Don't go where crowds are, and if you find yourself where komeono is sneezing nnd courfhlng, leuve Immed iately. Locnl epidemics of influenza nre now occuring and are likely to occur from time to time for the next two or three years but they can bo avoided by uny community, family or indivi dual if they will do these things. Be inoculated today I Good Roads Stay Put. George Ade, the writer and hum orist, once said: "Good roads cost money, but show mo a community which has Invested In hard roads, such us can bo used at all times of the year, and which would be willing to V .

From the fact that tho Tax Com missioner had raised the value of Gar rard county land to nearly $3,000,000 over the assessment of 1917, it wns thought that there would be no raise by the State Tax Commission, but such is not the case and the duties before the Supervisors Is plainly lnid down by that Commission and n raise on land in Garrard county at $1,000, 000 is ordered and the value of town lots must also be raised not less than $25,000.

The Board will do this by placing upon the assessment books all lands which have been omitted, and by increasing the assessed valuation of individual tax payers whose assessments are less than 85 per cent, of their actual value. The Board should see that no property is assessed at less than 85 per cent of its actual value for the present year.

If necessary to equal ize on the basis indicated, the Board nay exceed an increase of $1,025,000. FIFTH Certain intangible schedu les have been returned to the Board, and tho Board should follow the dir ections of tho State Tax Commission in relation thereto, nnd should sec that each person has tho proper no tice. In addition, the Board should seek diligently for intangible prop erty which has not been assessed, and should get it all on the assessor's books. Intangible property placed on the books will not be considered as part of the above mentioned in crease.
