LYNCH, Asst, Cashier Morgan City's Strongest Financial Institution St. Mary Chapter, A. R. C. Will Extend N ecessary Relief To Influenza Victims Chairman Williams Suggests Isolation And An Urgent Call Is Made For Volun teer Nurses The following letter lias been received from Chairman C. 8 . Williams of 8 t. Mary Chapter, A. R. and is self explanatory: Patterson, La., Oct. A, 1SUS. AH Chnirnun : Owing to the epidemic of Spanish in fluenza, which is rapidly growing more serious each day, I judge it is not advis able to call a meeting of the executive committee until such time as all danger from contagion is past. Just now it appears to me that all the workrooms should be closed, and I sug gest that in as much as there is very lit tle work to do, unless I hear from a ma jority of you to the contrary, that you do not open your workrooms after re ceipt of this notice. We find in Patterson that there are a number of cases that need prompt at tention and the care of some organized and wel equipped body. We know of one family in which all ten members are sick at one time. The chairman of the Pat terson branch has employed competent nurses—in this ease they are graduate nurses—to attend to these people. If necessary, two nurses will be sent or one will preferably be a volunteer nurse—as a matter of fact, both may volunteer, and, of course, it is preferable, if it is ^possible to seeure a trained volunteer 'nurse. It is my idea you should ap point a committee of three, who will bave charge of relief work during this pres ent epidemic. You should, yourself, be a member of this committee, unless you wish otherwise. This committee should arrange, if possible, for the use of a suitable building, which could be used for an isolation hospital if it becomes necessary. You should arrange the hos ! pital in such manner that both colored and white can be taken care of. You should then secure as many nurses as possible, who fire willing to serve either as volunteers or with a salary, which salary should not exceed $7."> per month with all expenses to a graduate nurse— $.10 to 50 per month may be paid for less experienced nurses. Arrangements should be made with your local stores to furnish such supplies as may be needed, at cost—these sup plies including bed linen, towels, medi cine, etc., even food supplies, if re quired. The importance of this work depends largely upon the seriousness of the epi demic and it appears at this moment that your work may be of great im portance, and the real efficiency of the chapter and its benefit to the community may rest upon the work in this particu lar epidemic. ~ When the chest feels on fire and the throat burns, you have indigestion ,and you need HERBINE to get rid of the disagreeable feelinng.
