States Hygienic Laboratory will fur nish a more certain way in which indi vidual cases of this disease can be recognized." What is the course of the disease? Do people die of it? "Ordinarily, the fever lasts from three to four days and the patient re covers. But while the proportion of deaths In the present epidemic has generally been low, In some pinces the outbreak has been severe and deaths have been numerous. When death oc curs it Is usually the result of a com plication." What causea the diseaae and how la It spread? "Bacteriologists who have studied in fluenza epidemics in the past have found In many of the eases a very Small rod-shaped germ cnlled, after its discoverer, 1'felffer's bacillus. In other eases of apparently the same kind of disease there were found pneumococci, the germs of lobar pneumonia. Still others have been caused by strepto cocci, and by others germs with long names. No matter what particular kind of germ causes the epidemic, It Is now believed that influenza is always spread from person to person, the germs being carried with the air along with the very small droplets of mucus, expelled by coughing or sneezing, forceful talking, and the like by one who already has the germs of the dis ease. They may also be carried about in the air In the form of dust coming from dried mucus, from coughing and sneezing, or from careless people who spit on the floor and on the sidewalk. As In most other catching diseases, a person who has only a mild attack of the disease himself may give a very severe attack to others." What should be done by those who catch the disease? "It Is very Important that every per son who becomes sick with influenza should go home at once and go to bed. This will Iielp keep away dangerous complications and will, at the same time, keep the patient from scattering the disease far and wide. It is highly desirable that no one be allowed to sleep in the same room with the pa tient In fact, no one but the nurse shdulà be allowed In the room. "If there is cough anil sputum or , running of the eyes and nose, care should he tuken that all such dis charge^ are collected on bits of gauze or rag or paper napkins and burned. If the patient complains of fever and headache, he should be given water to drink, a cold compress to the forehead and a light sponge. Only such medi cine should be given as ls^prescrlbed by the doctor. It Is foolish to ask the druggist to prescribe and may be dan gerous to take the so-called 'safe, sure and harmless' remedies advertised by patent medicine manufacturers. "If the patient is so situated that he can be attended only by some one who must also look after others in the fam ily, It Is advisable that such attendant wear a wrapper, apron or gown over the ordinary house clothes while In the sick room and slip this off when leav ing to look after the others. "Nurses and attendants will do well to guard against breathing In danger ous disease germs by wearing a simple fold of gauze or mask while near the patient." Will a person who has had influenza before catch the disease again? "It Is well known that an attack of measles or scarlet fever or smallpox usually protects a person against an other attack of the same disease. This appears not to be true of 'Spanish In fluenza.' According to newspaper re ports the King of Spain suffered an attack of influenza during the epi demic thirty years ago, and was again stricken during the recent outbreak in Spain." How can one guard against Influ enza? "In guarding against disease of all kinds, it is important that the body be kept strong and able to fight off dis ease germs. This can be done by hav ing a proper proportion of work, play and rest, by keeping tho body well clothed, and by eating sufficient whole some and properly selected foot!. In connection with diet, It is well to re member that milk is one of the best all-around foods obtainable for adults as well as children. So fnr as a dis ease like influenza Is concerned, health authorities everywhere recognize the very close relation between its spread and overcrowded homes. While it is not always possible, especially in times like the present, to avoid such overcrowding, people should consider the health danger and make every effort to reduce the h'une overcrowd ing to a minimum. The value of fresh air through open windows cannot be over emphasized. "When crowding is unavoidable, as in street cars, care should be taken to keep the face so turned ns not to tn ! ' hale directly the air breathed out by ! another person. 1 "It ls especially important to be ! ware of the person who coughs or sneezes without covering his mouth and nose. It also follows that one should keep out of crowds and stuffy places as much as possible, keep —homes, offlees and workshops well 1 aired, spend some time out of doors each day, walk to work If at all prac ticable—in short, make every posslhle effort to breathe as much pure air as possible. "In all health matters follow the ad vlce of your doctor and obey the regu lations of yonr local and state health officers."

THE PRESIDENT WANTS HIM! IDAHO NEEDS HIM! (ONSMTION Of TETON COAL ROAD THE WHITE HOUSE, Washington. July 3, 1918. My dear Senator: After your call of the other day, I took up with the Railroad Administration the question of the proposed branch line to reach the coal mines in the Teton Valley, and am happy to say that Mr. Hines apprises me in a letter" dated yesterday that, in accordance with a final recommendation just received from the Regional Director, the* Railroad Administration has ordered the prompt construction of the branch line on terms agree able to the coal company. Cordially and sincerely yours, (Signed) WOODROW WILSON. The foregoing letter shows clearly that the Te ton Coal Road was ordered built as the result of a personal appeal by Senator Nugent to President Wilson. This is indicative of what can lie accom plished for the State of Idaho by a United States Senator who enjoys the esteem and confidence of the Administration. Gave Timely Warning. Vivian was playing In the lumber that had been plied In the backyard when her mother happened to see her. "Vivian," her mother said, "you mustn't play on that lumber; you are liable to get hurt." Vivian obeyed and was soon interested in something else until Billy enme out. He, like boys, had to climb up to the top of the lum ber. Vivian said : "Billy, don't climb up on that lumber 'cause if you do you'll he wearln' crutches." To Destroy Plant Worms. Worms may he killed In Jurs of pot ted plants by taking a d«jzen horse chestnuts and pouring over them two quarts «>f hot water, writes L. M. T. in the Mother's Mugazine. Let stand over night and with tills water thor oughly saturate the earth in the Jurs. It wlil not injure the plants, but the worms will be dead in a few hours. About Advice.

The slender type of person is said to be more susceptible to disease than the heavier, and an investigation shows that .TO years ago only 20 per cent of the p«*ople were of the slender type; today GO per cent are of this type. Russian Floors. The finest floors are said to be seen In Russian houses. For those of the highest grade, tropica! woods are ex clusively employed. FTr and pine are never used, as in consequence of their stieky character they nttrnct nn«l re tain dust and dirt, and thereby soon become blackened. Pitch pine, too, is likely to shrink, even after being well seasoned. The mosaic wood floors in Russin are often of extraordinary beauty. Steam Against Sails. Modern naval development may be said to have begun with the rapid in crease' in the size of ships which took place at the close of the fifteenth cen tury ; and mediaeval history finally closed with the battle «if Lepanto la 1571. the last great action la which rowing galleys played an Important part. From this time the sail-pro pel led man-of-war was gradually im proved until early in the nineteenth century, when sails began to give way to steum.
