LATEST WORD ON SUBJECT. _ Epidemic Probably Not Spanish In Origin—Germ Still Unknown—Peo ple Should Guard Against "Droplet Infection''—-Surgeon General Blue Makes Authoritative Statement. Washington, D. C.—(Special.)— Al though King Alfonso of Spain was one of the victims of the Influenza epi demic in 1803 and again this summer, Spanish authorities repudiate any claim to influenza as a "Spanish" dis ease. If the people of this country do not take care the epidemic will be como so widespread throughout the United States that soon we shall hear the disease called "American" influ enza. In response to a request for definite information concerning Spanish Influ enza, Surgeon General Rupert Blue of the U. S. Public Health Service has authorized the following official inter view: What Is Spanish Influenza? Is It something new? Does it come from Spain? "The disease now occurring In this country and called 'Spanish Influen za' resembles a very contagious kind of 'cold,* accompanied by fever, pains Coughs and Sneezes Spread Diseases 19 - fyX-. As Dangerous as Räson Gas Shells In the head, eyes, ears, back or other parts of the body and a feeling of se vere sickness. In most of the eases the symptoms disappear after three or four days, the patient then rapidly recover ing. Some of the patients, however, develop pneumonia, or Inflammation of the ear, or meningitis, and many of these complicated cases die. Whether this so-called 'Spanish' Influenza Is Identical with the epidemics of Influen za of earlier years is not yet known. "Epidemics of Influenza have visited this country since 1047. It is Interest ing to know that this first epidemic was brought here from Valencia, j Spain. Since that time there have been numerous epidemics of the dis ease. In 1SS0 and 1S00 an epidemic of influenza, starting somewhere In the Orient, spread first to Russia and thence over practically the entire civ j was another flare-up of the disease. Both times the epidemic spread wide ly over the United States. "Although the present epidemic Is called 'Spanish influenza,' there Is no reason to believe that it originated In Spain. Some writers who have studied the question believe that the epidemic came from the Orient and they call at tention to the fact that the Germans mention the disease as occurring along the eastern front In the summer aud fall of 1017." How can "Spanish Influenza" be rec ognized? "There Is as yet no certain way In which a single case of 'Spanish Influ enza' can be recognized. On the oth er hand, recognition ts easy where there is a group of cases. In contrast i t0 the outbreaks of ordinary coughs and colds, which visually occur in the cold months, epidemics of influenza may occur at any season of the year. Thus the present epidemic raged most intensely in Europe in May, June and July. Moreover, In the ease of ordi nary colds, the general symptoms (fever, pain, depression) are by no means as severe or as sudden In their onset ns they arc in influenza. Final ly, ordinary colds - do not spread through the community so rapidly or so extensively as does influenza. "In most cases a person taken sick with influenza feels sick rather sud denly. He feels weak, lias pains In the eyes, ears, head or back, and may be sore all over. Many patients feel dizzy, some vomit Most of the pa tients complain of feellug chilly, and with this comes a fever In which the temperature rises to 100 to 104. In most eases the pulse remains relative ly slow. "Inn ßpea r a nee, one Is. struck, by the lllz ed world^ Three years^ater there j I fact 'tllüT the* patient looks slckj His [ eyes and the inner side of his eyelids j may be slightly 'bloodshot,' or 'con gested,' as the doctors say. There may be running from tlio nose, or there may he some cough. These signs of a cold nmy not he marked: never theless the patient looks and feels very sick. "In addition to the appearance and the symptoms ns already described, examination of the patient's blood may aid the physician In recognizing 'Span ish Influenza,' for U has been found 'that In this disease the number of white corpuscles shows little or no in crease above the normal. It is possi ble that the laboratory Investigations ; now being made through the National Research Council and the United States Hygienic Laboratory will fur nish a more certain way in which Indi vidual cases of this disease can be recognized." What la tha cours« 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 places the outbreak has been severe and deaths have been numerous. When death oc curs It is usually the result of a com plication." What eauaea the disease and how I« It apread? "Bacteriologists who have studied In fluenza epidemics In the past have found In many of the cases a very Small rod-shaped perm called, after its discoverer, Pfeiffer's bacillus. In other cases 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 lias the germs of the dis ease. They may also be carried about In the air In the form of dust coining 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 lias only a mild attack of the disease himself may give a very severe attack to others." . , sleep in the same room with the pa What ahould 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 help 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 tient In fact, no one but the nurse should be allowed in the room. "If there is cough and sputum or running of the eyes and nose, care should be taken that all such dis charges are collected on bits of gauze o- rag or paper napkins and burned. If tlie patient complains of fever and headache, he should he given water to drink, a coll compress to the forehead and a light sponge. Only such medi cine should be given as is prescribed by the doctor. It is foolish to ask the druggist to prescribe and may he dan gerous to take the so-called 'safe, sure »»»»»na» BaaaaaaaaaaaaaartaaaaaaaaCaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa a « 8 1 « 8 V « THE PASTIME M. F.

"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 13 advisable that such attendant wear a wrapper, apron or gown over the ordinary house clothes while in the sick room and slip this oil 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 whs has had influenza before catch the disease again? "It is well known that an attack of measles or scarlet fever or smallpc ; usually protects a person against an other attack of the same disease. Tills 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 he kept strong and allié to tight off dis ease germs. This can he done by hav ing a proper proportion of work, play and rest, by keeping the body well clothed, and by eating sufficient whole some and properly selected food. In connection with diet, it is well to re member that milk is one of the best , . . , j all-around foods obtainable for adults as well as children. So far as a dis ease like influenza is concerned, health authorities everywhere recognize the very close relation between Us spread and overcrowded homes. While it is not always possible, especially in j j I U*S the Ureseut. to. avoid, such overcrowding,' people should consider ; the health danger and make every effort to reduce the home overcrowd ing to a minimum. The value of fresh air through open windows cannot he over emphasized. I "When crowding Is unavoidable, as I in street cars, care should be taken to I keep the face so turned as not to ln | haie directly the air breathed out by ] another person. "It is especially Important to be I ware of the person who coughs or j sneezes without covering his tnouth I and nose. It also follows that ore j shoulJ koep out of crowds and stu ffy places as much as possible, keep j ! homes, offices and workshops well aired, spend some time out of doors each day, walk to work if at all prac ticable—in short, make every possible effort to breathe as much pure air as possible. "In all health matters follow the ad vice of your doctor and obey the regu lations of your local and state health officers." "Cover up each cough and sneeze, If you don't you'll spread disease." . rr m *5?
