STATE BOAEO&HEALTH ISSUES
In view of the prevailing epidemic
of-Spanish influenza, which is caus
ing many deaths in army camps and
as a general warning to the puoiic,
the state Borad of Health has asked
the press to give wide publicity to
,'the following proclamation:
, "Bowling Green, Ky.,
"September 30, 1918.
"Whereas, Influenza, a highly in
fectious disease, in a severe and fa
tal form, is wide spread in the Atlan
tic Coast States, and, being caused
only by the easily recognized Pfieffer
germ, which is spread along lines of
travel, and in communities and fam
ilies, only by coughing and sneezing
people, who ought to be in bed or m
their rooms, has been brought to
twir a nmHaiiv
Kentucky, and, not being an officially
quar.antinable disease, threatens to
and is likely to becojne a widespread
epidemic in Kentucky unless the
prompt and intelligent co-operation
of the people can be' secured in com
bating it, and,
"Whereas, The precautions have
advised, important as to coughs and
colds, are made especially so in the
emergency now upon us for the pro
tection at all times of our soldiers
with thousands being called to the
colors by the selective draft to reach
the camps within the -next few weeks,
as well as for farmers, industrial op
eratives and the noble wojmen daily
laboring for the support and comfort
of our own and the allied armies,
"Whereas, The control of this dis
ease ( if successful, must come from
an educated public sentiment which
will patriotically demand the volun-
! tary and systematic isolation in his
home or in a hospital during tne
prevalence of the disease in any com
munity, of every person who is af
flicted with cough and sneezing, and
especially that such persons shall
not enter or remain in any public
conveyance, picture show, or other
assembly until the disease is under
control, and, that, therefore,
"Be It Resolved, That this Board,
in the discharge of a manifest public
duty and by virtue of authority vest
ed in it by law, hereby urges that all
patriotic people who show symptoms
of this disease, promptly isolate
themselves in their homes, for the
protection of their fajmilies, and that
a mass or two tniCKnesses ot gauze
or cheese cloth be worn over the
mouth, and nose where for any rea
son, such isolation cannot be made
complete; it advises people to keep
away from al places of assembly in
any community where the disease is
prevailing; and it hereby expressly
forbids public funerals for those
dead of the disease and forbids itin
erant shows of every kind from en
tering or making exhibits within the
limits of this Commonwealth. If
these precautions are demanded by
public sentiment and systematically
carried out by every family and com
munity, there need be little cause for
alarm, and the disease will soon be
"By authority of the Board.

ductions are film history and the men
tion of his name in connection with
a screen offering always excites anti

way of advanced cinema technique.
Mr. Griffith spent many months in
England and Prance during the past
year and on his return to this coun
try, he produced "Hearts of the
World" which was presented with
enormous success in New York. His
latest offering, which deals with the
great social transformation effected

Love," and this will be presented at

While the entire story has not been
revealed by Mr. Griffith, enough of

a fairly accurate idea of the theme.
It deals with a young American who
enlists in the Canadian army when he
reads of the German atrocities in
Belgium and goes to England. While
training near London, he meets and
loves a charming Australian girl who
reciprocates his passion.
When this girl falls heir to a vast
fortune, an unscrupulous English
baronet seeks to force her into mar
riage with him, and this affair is in
terrupted by international complica
tions and the operations of German
spies. The girl later finds "the great
love" in unremitting service for
country and the cause of world's

with LOCAL APPLICATIONS, as they
cannot reach the seat of the disease.
Catarrh is a local disease, greatly in
fluenced by constitutional conditions,
and in order to cure it you must take
an internal remedy. Hall's Catarrh
Medicine is taken internally and acts
through the blood on the mucous
surfaces of the system. Hall's Ca
tarrh Medicine was prescribed by
one of the best physicians in this
country for years. It is composed of
some of the best tonics known, com
bined with some of the best blood
purifiers. The perfect combination of
the ingredients in Hall's Catarrh
Medicine is what produces such won
derful results "in catarrhal conditions.
