FpMewlc In U47 Epidemics of Influenza have viaited thla country sinew 1<47. It la Interesting to know that this first epidemic was brought here from Valencia, Spain. Since that time there have been numerous epidemics of the disease In IM> and IIM an epidemic of Influenxa. starting somewhere In the Orient. sprewd first to linseia. and thence over practically the entire clvlllxed world. Three years later there was another flare up of the disease Both times the epidemic sprewd widely over the t'nltesl States. Alf ho the present epidemic Is called "Spanish Influenxa," there is no reason to believe that it orlgl nated In Spain Some writers who have studied the question believe that the epidemic came from the Orient and they call attention to the fact that the Germans mention the disease as occurring along the eastern front In the summer and fall of Ml?. How ran "Spanish Influenza" be recognized? There la a* yet no certain way In which a alnicte case at "Spanish Influenza" can be reroenlytd. on the other hand. recognition la easy where there !• a group of rases Tn contrast to the outbreak* of ordi nary cough* and colda, which usually occur In the cold months, epidemic* of Influenza may occur at any sea son of the year. Thu*. the present ••lAlimic raged moat Intensely in Kurope In May, June, and July. Moreover. In the ca«e of ordinary cold*, the general symptom* (fever, pain, depression! are by no m«ans as severe or as suddsn in their onset as they are In Influenza. Finally, ordinary colds do not spread thru the community so rapidly or so ex tensively aa does Influenza. In most caaes a person taken *lck with Influenza f»els sick rather suddenly. ll* feel* weak, haa pain* In th« eyes, ear*, hea/l or back, and may be sore all over. Many patients feel dizzy, some vomit. Mont of the paUenta complain of feeling chilly, and with this cornea a fever In which the temperature rises to 100 to 104. In most cases the pulse re mains relatively slow. Patients "Ijook Hick" In appearance one la atruck by the fart that the patient look* alck.

Theae al(pi* of a cold may not be marked, nevertheleaa the patient look a and feela very alck. In addition to the appeurance and the aymptoma aa already deacrlbed. examination of the patlent'a blood may aid the phyalclan In recogniz ing "Hpanlah Influenza," for It haa been found that In thia dlaeaae the number of white corpuarlea ahowa little or no Increaae above the nor mal.

Aa In most other catching disease*, a person who haa only a mild attack of the disease himself may give a very severe attack to others. What should be done by those who ralrh tlw disease? It Is very Important that every person who becomes sick with In fluenxa should go home at once and 'go to bed. This will help keep away dangerous complications and wrlll. at the same time, keep the patient from scattering the disease far and wide. Jt is highly desirable that no one be allowed to sleep In the same room with the patient. In fact, tio one but the nurse should be allowed in the room. If there Is rough or sputum or running of the eyes and nose, care should be taken that all such dls j charges are collected on bits of gauxe or rag or paper napkins and burned. If the patient complains of f-vee and headache, he should be ; given water to drink, a cold com press to the forehead, and a light sponge. Beware Safe Core Only such medicine should be given as Is pree<-rlbed by the doctor It Is foolish to ask the druggist to prescribe and may be dangerous to take the so-called "safe, sure and Stomach Acts Fine, No Indigestion!
