Washington, D. G—(Special.)—Al
though King Alfonso of Spain was
one of the victims of the Influenza epl
! demie In 1S93 and again this sommer,
Spanish authorities repudiate any
j claim to Influenza aa a "Spanish" dis
ease. If the people of this country do
not take care the epidemic will be

What Is Spanish Influenza? la It
something new? Dean It corns from
"The disease now occurring In this
country and called 'Spanish Influen
za' resembles a very contagious kind
of *cold.' accompanied by fever, pains
la the head, eyes, ears, back or other
parts of tho body and a feeling of
vere sickness. In most of the casea the
symptoms disappear after three or four
days, the patient then rapidly recover,
ing. Some of the patienta, however,
develop pneumonia, or Inflammation
of the ear, or meningitis; and many of
these complicated casea die. Whether
thla so-called 'Spanish* Influenza Is
Identical with the epidemica of Influen
za of earlier yearn Is not y et known,
'that In this disease the number of
white corpuscles shows little or no In
crease above the normal. It Is possl
ble that the laboratory Investigations •
now being made through the National
Besearch Council and the United
States Hygienic Laboratory will fur
nlsh a more certain way in which lndl
vidual cases of this disease can bs

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 baa
generally been low, in some placet the
outbreak has been severe and deaths
have been numerous. When death oc
curs It Is usually the result of a com
What causes the disease and how la
It spread?
"Bacteriologists who have studied in
fluenza epidemics In the past bare
found In many of the cases a very
8mall rod-shaped germ 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. 8UU
others have been caused by strepto
cocci, and by others germs with long
"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 J
with the
expelled by coughing or sneezing,
forceful talking, and the like by obe
who already b&s the germs of the dis
ease. They'may also be carried about
In the air In the form of dost 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 bo dons by thooo 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 fmr 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
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 the patient complains of fever and
headache, be should be given water to
drink, a cold 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 be dan
gerous to take the so-called 'safe, sure

"It Is well known that aa attack of
measles or scarlet fever or smallpox
usually protects a person against an
other attack of the same disease. Tblv

fluenza.' According to newspaper re
ports tbe King of Spain suffered an
attack of Influenza during the epi

How can one guard against Info
"In guarding against disease of all
kinds, It Is Important that the body be
kept strong and able to fight off dis
eese germs. This can be done by hav
Ing s proper proportion of work, plaj
and rest, by keeping the body weil
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
all-around foods obtainable tor adults
as well as children. So far as a dis
ease like influenza Is concerned, health
authorities everywhere recognize tbe
very dose relation between Its spread
and overcrowded borne*. While it is
not always possible, especially In
time* like the pres ent, to. avoid, and»
overcrowding, people should consfdei
tbe health danger and make ever;
effort to reduce the home overcrowd
Ing to a minimum. The value of fresh
sir 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 ms not to In
bale directly the air breathed ont by
another person.
"It Is especially Important to bo
ware of the person who coughs or
sneezes without covering his' mouth
and nose. It also follows that one
should keep out of crowds sad staff«
places as much as possible, keei
homes, offices and workshops wei
