Local activities have been sevea-ly hatidicap p. d in enforcing thy closing order, as not only have the public schools, churches, moving pic tue show and pool rooms been closed but wcrk at the Industrial Instituteand College has bi-n suspended and students of the institution will not be permitted to bave the campus un li! the quarantine is lifU d. While the order which, at i he request of the federal government, was issued by local health officials may seem drastic, it is in line with the rules which are being t.A.-rced in other cities throughout the country, and should be obeyed cheerfully and willingly. . We Americans are rapidly beginning to learn that war entails many hardships and many de privations;, but we are .ring our burdens cheerfully and doing everything in our power to co-operate with the government in its effort to secure a speedy and victorious end to the struggle. Although no one, can tell howdong the law prohibiting public gathering:! will remain in force, it i;; a foregone conclusion that its dura tion depends largely upon the manner in which it is observed. If the poo pie obey the law to the letter it h probable that the epidemic will soon be stamped out and that we can resume our usual activities at an er.rly date. If, con versely, an effort is made to evade the law, the disease may spread and many weeks are likely to pass before all restrictions are removed. The Commercial feels safe, however, in predicting that the rule will be rigidly observed not only in Columbus but in eveiy city throughout the country.' The American people have respond ed with practical unanimity, not only to every order issued by the go eminent but to every request that it has made since the United Slates entered the war, and they can be depended upon to do everything in their power to aid Uncle oam in his effort to stamp out the pre sent, epidemic. While the closing of schools, churches and t hi a tors will naturally put a stop to public ga therings, it will not prevent citizens from as sembling on street corners ai:d in stores. As semblage of this character should, however, be guarded against, and we should' keep to our selves as much as possible; for this is the surest and speediest way to stamp out the malady.

Many prominent southern senators opposed She measure, among them having been Senator John Sharp Williams, of this state, and Sena ,ou; Oscar Underwood and J. H. Bankhead, of .Alabama.

Over in Canula, in the leading cities, the people have begun using whale meat as a reg ular article of diet. The butcher shops in Van couver, Toronto and other eastern citiea ex- ;nre whale intra t for sale at 5 ponce the pound :' all times., and it is becoming very popular. I'ho whale, although he lives in the sou, is not a fish, but a red and warm-blooded mammal. Tho i'kv.h. yrhen properly cooked, tastes like ood beef. It is a trifle coaise, but not tough, ;.:d in San Francisco and the Pacific coast cities rhalo meat is preferred by many to beef Whales are enoimously large, and one of them i-pp furnish as much meat as a head of cattle, .ml as they are quite numerous, whale meat will add largely to the food supply of the coun I r y .
