SPECIES OF FRIGHTFULNESS
As the spread of the scourge call
ed the Spanish influenza goes on
with its alarming rapidity one's mem
ory goes back to the summer of 1916
when infantile paralysis swept espe
cially the lower districts of New York
city and from there spread through
out the entire country. And when it
was finally whlspbred about that the
epidemic was another demonstration
of German hate, the product of a mil
itary autocracy that could look far
enough into the future to desire to
bring harm to future generations in
the United States, the people could
scarcely believe that Prussian sol
diers hacked Belgian babies to pieces.
After thousands of children had
died American secret service agents
learned that the germs of infantile
paralysis had been isolated in Germa
ny. They knew that if it was possi
ble to isolate the germ, then it also
was possible to spread the disease by
artificial means. If it was possible
to do such a terrible thing the secret
service knew that Germany at least
must be trying to do it.
Then began a series of investiga
tions, and it was learned that a cer
tain physician had come to America
from Germany and that he was re
ceiving money from the German gov
ernment. It was also discovered that
blue-bottle flies were placed in bits of
germ culture and then turned loose
in the crowded tenement districts of
New York. The blue-bottle flies did
the rest—the plague was spreading
at a terrible rate. But before the
secret service could round up its tacts
Fate intervened. The German doctor
became Inoculated with the germ and
died in the frightful agony that he
had brought upon countless Innocent
children. Then the plague began to

And even now It Is more than a

that Is killing thousands of the brave

especially distributed throughout the

FARMER« ASKED TO HAVE
PATIENCE IN WHEAT MOVING
An appeal has been sent to farmers
from Herbert Hoover, national food!
administrator, asking that patience:
be shown in the matter of moving the
great wheat crop, Inferring that there
Is good news behind it. The progress
on the western front has demanded a
diversion of grain ships for the aid of
General Pershing, whose demands in
combatting with the retiring Huns are
becoming much enlarged.
Mr. Hoover wishes the farmers to
understand that the diverting of the
grain ships is temporarily curtailing
the wheat movement from the sea
board and has filled the seaboard and
terminal elevators to capacity, thus
checking the movement of grain. He
urges that there is no need of farmers
selling their wheat at less than gov
ernment price, if the holders will have
a little patience, and that the wheat
will shortly be moved and the full
price secured by every grower.
Not only in Idaho, but elsewhere
farmers have become worried over
the movement of the grain to the
terminal markets, even to the entent
that the wheat might almost become
a drug on the market, not under
standing that every grain that has
ripened in the wheat fields is precious
in winning the war. Mr. Hoover evi
denUy wtBh es It understood that the
government wants the farmers' wheat
but.at present everything must give
way towards rushing men and ammu
