After several months' experience with the flu the doctors who have been doing an immense amount of research work, admit that it is still a mystery. The experiments which were concluded last week in the east, instead of throwing light upon the workings of the disease cast a still greater cloud of mystery a roundjit. During the experiment every possible method of communi cating the disease from patients who had bad cases of it, to healthy young men who'had volunteered for the test, failed to bring results. These volunteers allowed influenza patients- to cough in their faces, germs were taken from the throats of one ill with the disease and plac ed immediately in the throat, eyes and nose of a healhty volunteer and germs were even injected into the blood, but the flu apparently could not be thus transmitted from one to another. The theory has been ad vanced as a result of the experi ments that there is only a short period just at the beginning of the disease when contagion is possible. The theory can no doubt be explod ed as all of the rest have been. A press report states that 113 Jack Bailey started something seed, and as' the re are only half a dozen ears or so all told it is a matter that is taking on serious proportions. Alec Galloway has "first holders" however, as he stak ed out the first claim. If there is any left after he helps himself we have just about decided to plant it in our own garden in order to ward off any serious consequences. Last Saturday we saw a fine four horse team hauling a light load of grain through town. It looked like a toss-up whether the team was go ing to get stuck in the mud or not, but the horses were good pullers and made the trip to the warehouse after a hard struggle. Kansas goes to extremes on every thing from booze to cyclones. In one county in the state they are about to let a contract for a brick road costing $53,000 a mile. It is said the same kind of road could be built before the war for $20,000 a mile. , The cement sidewalks are at least proving a blessing to the kids, There is hardly a youngster in town who hasn t a pair of roller skates and they all seem to know how to use them. Roller skating is splen did exercise and saves doctor bills. The farmer who expects to con tinue tilling his land for a number of years in the future and who de sires to maintain or even increase the fertility of the soil, will begin to get ready to inaugurate a new system of farming operations. The constant cropping of the land in the Potlatch is beginning to be very noticeable in decreased grain yields. The soil, although still very rich, will not last always if present 'methods are followed year after : year. More alfalfa and clover and dairying along with a good bunch of hogs, is the solution to the profc | lem. The farmer who gradually readjusts his crop system to include a goodly share of clover and alfalfa will keep his land up to its present standard and even increase its pro ductiveness, but constant cropping to grain and beans will eventual'y deplete the soil. The very atmosphere is surchanged with the spirit of good road con struction. All conditions seem ripe for development, and 1919 will see the entire country busy at provid ing highways ard byways over which the autoist may bjrn gaso 1 1 1 ne with maximum satisfaction— so far as roads are concerned. : The long pent desire for better roads was just ready to break its bonds when the war stepped in and suppressed it. It has grown none the less intense with the delay, and is taking the first opportunity to assert itself with the opening of the coming spring. The need of extra ordinary and immediate employ ment for the masses of men being released from the army and the peculiar adaptibility of many of them to outdoor work impels the natural turning of the nation to road construction on a gigantic scale this year. The deisre of every community to get its share in the ! cut of the government highway ! money which is only waiting for takers is another incentive adding I to the general impetus.—i Nez Perce Hearld.
