President Wilson today answered Germany's peace proffer with a note declaring anew that there can be no peace with a German government controlled by a military autocracy, and no thought of an armistice while German atro I cities continue on land and sea. When the time to consider an arm- I istice come, the President said, the military advisers of the United States SAYS PIU KtAtit An Annaq tn fhn l)nT. a4 rm si-P I with ah ttppwcu iu uic raiuuiiMii ui uic People of Jackson County. The prevailing epidemic of influenza is materially affecting the sale of Liberty Bonds. At this date 17th inst we have ab sorbed but a little more than fifty per cent of our allotment of $305,500.00. We have never failed in our duty to our government and the boys "over there" let us not in this instance. Do not permit peace talk to lull you to sleep. A failure on the part of the people of America to oversubscribe the present land the Allies will be consulted and loan would be accepted by Germany and her allies as a recession from our high position to make the world safe for democracy. If peace were to come today, it would require the full amount now asked to make a good job and clean the Augean stable of autocracy. PEACE IS NOT IN SIGHT. The German army is not yet defeated; their hell born, devil bred kultur still runs rampant, and the first gun has yet to be fired on German soil. Until this happens until the German people are thoroughly convinced that their obsession for world power and dominion is an iridescent dream, PEACE IS NOT IN SIGHT. There are more people in America today untrue to their Pres ident and their government than there are in Germany untrue to (hat imp of hell whom they call the Kaiser. JACKSON COUNTY WAKE UP!

The text of the 'residents ansew follows: "In reply to the communication of the German government, dated the 12th instant, which you handed me today I have the honor to request to transmit the following answer: "The unqualified acceptance by the presnt German government, and by a large majority of the Reichstag, of the terms laid down by the President of the United States of America in his address to the Congress of the United States on the 8th of January, 1918, and in his subsequent addresses, justifies the President in making a frank and direct statement of his decision with regard to the communi cations of the German government of the 8th and 12th of October, 1918. "It must be clearly understood that the process of evacuation and the con ditions of an armistice are matters which must be left to the judgment and advice of the military advisers of the government of the United States and the allied governments, and the President feels it his duty to say that no arrangement can be accepted by the government of the United States which dones not provide absolute satisfactory safeguards and guaran tees of the maintenance of the presnt military supremacy of the armies of the United States and the Allies in the field. He feels confident that he can safely assume that this will also be the judgment and decision of the Allied governments. "The President feels 'hat it is also j his duty to add thai ! ither the gov ti 1rv,, i ';, .- ,. h. ' Is quite sure, the governments with : wuidi the government of the United I States is associated as a belligerent ! will consent to consider an armistice I so long as the armed forces of Germ i a'ny continue the illegal and Inhumani practices which they still persist in j "At the very time that, the German government approaches the govern nient of the United States with pro posals of peace its submarines are en gaged in sinking pasenger ships at with any nurse either trained or orac tical, who will lend her services.

"It is necessary, also in order that there may be no possibility of mis understanding, that the President should very solemnly call the atten tion of the government of Germany to , the language and plain intent of one t of the terms of peace which the I German government has now accepted. It is contained in the address of the President delivered at Mount Vernon on the fourth of July last. It is a3 i follows: " 'The destruction of every arbitrary power anywhere that can separately and of its single choice, disturb the peace of the world, or, if it cannot he. presntly destroyed, at least its re duction to virtual impotency.' " "The power which has hitherto con trolled the German nation is of the sott here descriled. It is within the choice ot the German nation to alter it. The President's words, just quot ed, naturally constitute a condition precedent to peace, if peace is to come by the action of the German people themselves.

PUBLIC HEALTH 8ER' cooperating with STATE BOARD OF INFLUENZA NOTICE. This bulletin is published in to make clear to the public wn; hoped that the ban upon of any kind will hare a effect upon the present Influenza. The reasons are ed as follows: (1) The disease germs large numbers in tho rest and may be discharged when a person coughs (2) It s therefore that the greater the c: space the greater wlip fa ls)e chance that a given person siftl Inhale organisms, and the gjsjfeter will be the chance that a givefc person will in hale a large number of the germs at one time. A given person contracts the di sease not because he takes in one in fluenza germ but because he takes in more influenza germs at one time than his body can overcome. If be takes in less organisms than this number hi body overcomes them and in so doing builds op increased resistance against further and heavier infections; this may be compared to the tact that a person who exercises builds up mus cle. (4) Since cutting down crowds re duces the number of germs a person is apt to inhale at any one time a greater number of people will have a chance to build up resistence. (5) Again, preventing crowds re duces the "explosiveness" ot the ep idemic; that is, it reduces the num ber of people getting sick at one time, and therefore keeps the physicians from being so badly overworked that they cannot care for all ot their patients properly. This would be certain to result in a large number of pneumonia cases and hence in a large number of deaths. (6) Preventing crowds therefore works in three ways to combat the epidemic: It keeps a large number of people from becoming infected at all; it causes many of the infections to be light infections which the per son can resist and which ae can use to build up increased resis'ance; Anally, it slows down the number i-as-s appearing at one tiwf allies the physicians to p-rrvfeCt a large number of pneumonia., cu and. HENCE Do not gather in crowds on the' streets. Do not enter crowded stores; use the 'phone to order. Do not go visiting. never sneeze or cough except into a handkerchief. FURTHER If you contract influenza do not be come discouraged. You are practical ly certain to recover IF you consult a physician at once and go to bed and STAY IN BED until you arc entirely well. DO PRECISELY what he tells you, both so that you may recover quickly and so that you may be the least possible danger to the rest of your family. LESLIE C.
