The Chief Danger I.lea la Complications Arising, Attacking Principally Patienta In a Rnn-Down Condition—Those Who Don't Go to Bed Soon Enough, or Those Who Get T7f Ton Early. Spanish Influenza, which appeared In 8paln in May, has all the appearance Of grip or la grippe, which has swept over the world In numerous epidemics ns far back as history runs. Hippocra tes refers to an epidemic In 411 B. C. which Is regarded by many to have been Influenza. Every century has had Its attacks. Beginning with 1831. this country has had five epidemics, the last in 1888-1890. THE SYMPTOMS. Grippe, or Influenza, as it is now called, usually begins with a chill, fol lowed by aching, feverishness and sometimes nausea and dlssiness, and a general feeling of weakness and de pression. The temperature Is from 100 to 104, and the fever usually lasts from three to five days. ' The germs attack the mucous membrane, or lining if the air passages—nose, throat and Nronchlal tubes; there is usually a nard cough, especially bad at night, tad frequently all the appearances of c severe head cold. THE TREATMENT. Go to bed at the first symptoms, not only for your own sake, but to avoid spreading the disease to others—take a purgative, eat plenty of nourishing food, remain perfectly quiet and don't worry. Quinine, aspirin or Dover's Powder, etc., may be administered by Che physician's directions to relieve yie jtch lng._But there Is no cure or Feminine Foibles.

L V-.STjFgL » SOWS Mm specific fer Influenza—the disease must run its course. Nature herself will throw oft the attack If only you keep up your strength. The chief danger lies in the complications which may arise. Influenza so weakens the bodily resistance that there Is danger of pneu monia or bronchitis developing and sometimes inflammation of the middle ear, or heart affections. For these reasons. It is very important that the patient remain in bed until his strength returns—stay in bed at least two days or more after the fever has left you. or If you are over 60 or not strong, stay In bed four days or more, according to the severity of the attack. EXTERNAL APPLICATIONS. In order to stimulate the lining of the air passages to throw off the grippe germs, to aid in loosening the phlegm and keeping the air passages open, thus making the breathing eas ier, Vick's VapoRub will be found ef fective. Hot, wet towels should be ap plied over the throat, chest and back between the shoulder blades to open the pores. Then Vick's should be rubbed In over the parts until the skin Is red. spread on thickly and cover with two thicknesses of hot flannel cloths. Leave the clothing loose around the neck, as the heat of the body liberates the ingredients in the form of vapors. These vapors, in baled with each breath, carry the med ication directly to the parts affected. At the atme time, VapoRub le ab sorbed through and stimulates the skin attracting the blood to the sur face and thus aids In relieving the con gestion within. ' HOW TO AVOID THE DISEASE. Evidence seems to prove that this is a germ disease, spread principally by human contact, chiefly through coughing, sneesing or spitting. So avoid persons having colds — which means avoiding crowds — common drinking cups, roller towels, etc. Keep up your bodily strength by plenty of exercise In the open air and good food. Above all keep free from colds, as colds Irritate the lining of the air pas sages and render them much better breeding places for the germs. Use Vick's VapoRub at the very first sign of a cold. Fot a head cold, melt a little In a spoon and inhale the va pors. or better still, use VapoRub In a benzoin steam kettle. If this Is not available, use an ordinary tea-kettle. Fill half-full of boiling water, put in half a teaspoon of VapoRub from time to time—keep the kettle Just slowly boiling—Inhale the steam arising, p Vick's VapoRub can be had In three sises —30c, 60c, 81-20—at all druggists.

In the Italian theater over a front of nearly 40 miles from Ute Brenta to the middle reaches of Ute Piave river, the British, French and Italian ar mies are developing with success an offensive against the Anxtro-Hunga rlans and are swiftly driving them from the mountain passes toward the Austrian frontier and across the plains east of the Piave In northern Italy. American reserves are behind the lines prepared to aid the allies when the moment arrive*. On all of the other battle fronts the allied armies continue to be suc cessful. In Belgium there has been little fighting except by the artillery, whik in the region around Valenciennes only minor encounters are reported. Farther south the French are con tinuing successfully their process ef leveling the old salient between the territory east of SL Quentin and Rethel. Additional progress baa been made by General Debeney's troops, despite the violent resistance of the Germans. On some sectors the Ger mans are slowly retreating. Aside froiç artillery and machine run activity there baa been little fighting on that part of the front held by the Americans from the Meuse river to the vicinity of Grande Pre. The Germans have been heavily bom barding the American positions wich the Americans answering them shot ' for shot. The new big guns of the I Americans are violently sbejling Ger ! man positions far behind the lines, i taking under their Are towns of stra j tegic importance and troop forma ! tions preparing to be sent as rein forcements to important points of the crumbling battle line.

Large numbers of prisoners and nu merous guns have been taken by the allied troops in the big battle that has been in progress on the Italian front. The allies, particularly the British, are well across the Piave river from where the battle line in the mountains curves and bends southwest toward the Adriatic. Crowder Easy On Eider«.

Washington. — Thirty-three thou sand Austrian troops, hundreds of guns and innumerable machine guns have been captured by Italian and al lied forces on the Italian front, said an official dispatch today from Rome. The Thirty-second American Infantry Regiment has gone into action and the fighting now extends practically all along the course of the Piave River. The Austrians are resisting stub bornly, throwing in many new divi sions, but have not been able to stop the advancing forces. "Our offensive Is developing farth er south," said the dispatch, "and stretches practically all along the course of the Piave. The Third Army is now In action successfully. The line between the Brenta and the sea is strongly held by the greater part of the Italian army alongside of which is the Fourteenth Army Corps of Brit ish troops and a French division. The Thirty-second American Infantry Reg iment is now also in action. "The enemy is resisting with excep tional stubbornness and Is throwln into the fray new divisions, without, however, being successful in holding back our troops. In the Grappa re gion the troops of the First Italian army with the support of the Twelfth army has been successful in beating the enemy at Seguslno and has con quered Mont Gesen. The Eighth army has occupied the narrow pass of Fol lina and has already reached Vittorio. The Tenth army after having estab lished solid bridgeheads over the Mon ticano River has crossed the river and is advancing along the road Snegli ano- Odrzo. The Third army, after neutralizing the formidable artillery fire of the enemy, has crossed the Piave and San Dona di Piace and east of Zenson. "The number of prisoners captured up to the present moment amounts ta 802 officers and 32,198 men. Hundreds of guns have also been captured. It is impossible to calculate the number of machine guns which have fallen into our hands. "In Albania our troops, after beat ing the rear guards of the enemy, have occupied San Viovanni di Medua and are rapidly advancing on Scu tari." An earlier official dispatch from Rome said that more than 100 villages and towns had been liberated since j the offensive began and that the Aus trian army corps on the left had re tired' in disorder, leaving behind war material and several hundred guns.
