' WHY INFLUENZA
From the fountain of influenza,
! whose gusher days have passed, some
noteworthy lessons were learned and
incontestably taken to heart. Some
j of the stubborn facts that are new
are now worth recording and storing
away for another such "rainy day,"
says Or. Leonard Keene llirshberg,
A. 11., M. A., M !>.. of Johns Hopkins
| The natural, normal, healthy rosist
j ante of the strongest, most fearless
individuals; soldiers, outdoor workers
and vigorous, self-confident men was
| broken down swiftly by the germs of
I this pandemic influenza.
! The disease appears always to be
caught and conveyed by contact with ,
others who had It, which is entirely
the same, with measles and smallpox, j
"" The contagion is not air-borne. |
— Winds, rain, vapors, smoke and night 1
air or sewer gas. though blamed, have I
nothing to do with Spanish Influenza.
The disease is spread by contact and
only by contact.
The epidemic had several strange
characteristics not before noted by •
doctors or bacteriologists.
The disease is not the result alone
of an invasion by the influenza germ,
but instead a double assault by' both
the influenza bacillus and the pneu
mococcus or the influenza bug and the
J, germ streptococcus hemolyticus.
As one army surgeon. Major U. L.
j Mix. pointed out. It seems almost as
if the influenza bacillus discovered
! lirst in I kid! by Kitasato, a Japanese.
' and later claimed by a Herman named
I Pfeiffer and the pneumococcus lived
. together like father and child in a !
stale of "symbiosis."
Unlike ordinary pneumonia, thisi
I pneumonia has no pleurisy, no pit in
in chest, no empyema or pus in the j
walls next to the lungs.
Nose bleeding before the disease is
fully present is common with the first
| stages of fever. This appears to be
due to some interference with the pas
| sage of blood from the right side of
] the heart through the lungs and the
' damming back of the blood in the
_| veins of the neck and face.
This same thing accounts for the
“ I blued lack "cyanosis" of the many
| pneumonia victims of the scourge.
! The venous blood becomes checked
and held back in the parts of the
flesh, which can not expose it. as the
well lungs are able to du. to fresh
air and oxygen.
lied spots are frequently observed
upon the backs of influenza patients
Almost anything which diminishes
I the alkali naturally present In healthy
human blood augments the danger of J
germ diseases. If lowers tho health •:
of man’s fabric and allows bacteria :•
to get an Infective foothold.
Kxposure too sharp, sudden, long :•
or unexpected, such as to water, cold, j:
strange food or too much of it; fa- :•
tigue, starvation or gluttony lessen j:
the alkalinity of the blood and thus x
invito some contagion or infection to j:
implant itself in the system.
Any two of these factors are •:
enough to pul the soundest, boldest, I j:
lies! physique on a hospital cot in £
amazingly swift order.
Vaccines made of killed influenzaj£
bacilli arc now recognized as success-! £
ful The very fact that epidemics £
occur a generation or so apart and £
attacks leave the individual immune £
for months or years shows that, anti- £
influenza vaccines should be as tri- £
umphant as the anti typhoid, anti- £
smallpox and anti-rabies vaccines. £
Another discovery made regarding £
this plague is that every ounce of £
heat lost by the patient goes against £
him. The victim must be kept warm, x
and those who follow the practice, as £
in pneumonia, of putting the sufferer £
out of doors, add to his oxposure, los- £
ing strength and diminishing resist-;
ance. The patient must have uir and ; £
oxygen, but not cold and wet. He S
must be kept in bed to conserve Hts I
strength, and heat must be applied to £
his legs, feet, abdomen and chest. i i£
Salicylate of soda in ten-grain cap- -i
stiles, w ith pepsin or soda every four I £
hours, htis proved to be effective in £
many cases. Ammonium salicylate is "-:
as good as the sodium salicylate. ! £
PASSING OF THE "HALCYON"
News Item: "The whaling schooner j
Halcyon slipper her anchor while ly-'
ing at Akutan, in the Aleutian islands, I
and was driven to sea in the great;:-:
storm of November 11. This is the :
ship that was once owned by Jack j :•:
London, and which he piloted among j
the South Sea islands and later in
Arctic waters." :£
'Twas on the night of the dreadful
'Tis thus the story ran —
The good ship Halcyon lay at rest
In the port of Akutan.
Right well was she named, that fairy
When she look her jaunty way
To the palm crownod isles o: the a
And the cities of Cathay.— ,-t- it;
A spirit wild, unfettered, free.
As dauntless as her own,
A han' that was steady, sure and
Guided the Halcyon.
And the little ship that London loved ^
Went sailing on and on
'.tier her master's soul had passed
lulu the Great Unknown.
She hear l the call of the bitter North,
And tin t the Arctic blast.
As though 'twerc the breath of the
Till there nme a day at last
When a storm swept over Akutan,
In the land of the Midnight Sun,
Cringing word lo the little ship
That her voyaging was done—
And no man knew when the Halt yon I
Alone and noiselessly,
Slipped her anchor and crept away
om to the infinite sea.
