Health Ofticer Explains
Why Schools Are Open.
j The health authorities are oppos
!ed to closing schools during this
'• epidemic of influenza, because to do
! so would not affect the spread of the
! disease. Children attending school
j are but a small part of the popula
! tion. who may have or who may
I spread the disease, aud school clos
j ure affects their movements only •
! six hours out of the twenty-four. •
During the six school hours the
| average child is no more likely to be i
infected at school than elsewhere, i
This is especially true when the '
teacher excludes from school all pu- |
pils that show signs of illness. This ;
spidemic will continue for about six
weeks and will stop then, because *
most persons susceptible to the dis- '
ease will have had it.
The essential measures to fight in
fluenza are plenty of food, fresh air,
clothing suitable for the season, rest
in bed from the beginning of the
attack, and the result will likely' be
a mild case.
E. A. JONES.
Deputy State Health Officer.
o
The Huns.
There’s a protest from the Huns,
They don’t like our buck-shot guns.
Or do they' like our Yankee ways—
What they have done in years, we
have in days.
Our boys, so full of fighting pep.
Made them forget their goosestep,
And now r they know they' can’t win.
The Kaiser he may scold them;
Hindenberg can’t hold them,
I For they are headed for Berlin.

Acre Yield 01 Potato Grins
36 Per Cent in 20 Years

Washington, D. C., Oct. 7. —The
yield of potatoes per acre is gradu
ally increasing in this country, as
shown by the records of the Bureau i
of'Crop Estimates of the United
States Department of Agriculture.
During 1866-1874 the average an- '
nual yield per acre was 91 bushels,
but the average markedly' declined |
71.3 bushels in 1885-1894. Percep
tible recovery w r as made in the fol- |
lowing ten-year period and a much
larger recovery, rising to a new' high- j
water mark, was reached in 1905-•
1914, with its average yield of 97 j
; bushels per acre.
; In 20 years the productivity of the ;
. average potato acre increased 36 per j
• cent. This increase is due to variou.
j causes, among which are greater
j specialization of production, more in
j tensive treatment, and higher fertili
; ty of the soil. The ten-year average
\ yield of 97 bushels per acre in 1905-
: 1914 was followed by 96.3 bushels in
5 1915, 80.5 busheis in the very low
' year, 1916, and 100.8 bushels in I
■ 1917.
i Compared with population, the
■ ydeld of potatoes per acre declined
\ from 1866-1874 to 1905-1914. The
• gain of production per capita in re
; cent years has been more because of
[ increased acreage than because of in
; creased production per acre.

r WE WILL BUY
; ; MACHINE GUNS.
I Our Town's Fourth Liberty Loan Sub
scriptions Will Fay For Many of
j These Weapons.
i No other single weapon used in
the world war has proved so efficaci
• ous as the machine gun. Equally in
offense and defense it has become in
• . dispensable. When our boys dash
j forward against the Huns, they carry
i with them these deadly guns, setting
them up at every pause to rake the
ranks of the enemy. When our ava-1
tors fly over the German lines, for i
combat or for observation, each air
plane must carry one or more of
these weapons. Thousands upon
thousands of them are in use now,
| and more must be provided in an un
j ending stream.
1 It is well for the peeople of Cam
bridge to fix these facts firmly in
their minds, for they are about to
buy a great number of machine guns
with which the boys of this place,
who are in the service, will shoot the
Kaiser’s soldiers full of holes.
One light Browning machine gun
costs the government about $125.
Each resident of Cambridge who will
lend the United States government
$250 will know that he or she is
paying for two of those weapons,and
may be assured that those very guns
i will soon be spraying with bullets
; the brutal Boches who are trying to
j ruin the world.
The way to lend this money to the
government—which means to your
self—was opened to each of you j
when the bonds of the Fourth Liber- I
ty Loan were put on sale. It will j
take only five SSO bonds to pay for .
those two machine guns, and if you
cannot afford to take all five of
them, the members of your house
hold can combine to purchase that •
number. Then, when later you read j
about a bunch of the Cambridge boys j
lying in a machine gun nest in i
France beating back a counter-at-1
tack of the Huns, you can say; j
"Maybe they are using the guns our 1
family paid for.” Cambridge has
something like 8.000 population. Our
Liberty Loan director is informed
that we must take at least $275,000
•of the bonds of the Fourth Loan.
, That means that Cambridge will buy
j 2.200 light Browning machine guns
Ito help make the world a decent
place to live in.

Maryland To Aid
Y. W. C. A.
War Work
Five District Chairmen Named
To Put State Over The
Top In November
Drive. Ji
______
John R. Mott, president of the In
ternational Y. M. C. A. ha* been ap
pointed generalissimo for the united
war work campaign which will start
November 11 and through which it ia
expected that $170,500,000 will be
raised for war relief work by the
Young Women’s Christian Associa
tion and the six organizations join
ing with it in the drive.
A big setting-up meeting of the
Eastern departments of the seven or
ganizations was held Wednesday, Sep
tember 12, in New York, at which
time campaign plans were discussed.
Department staff members, members
of the state directors' committee and
the state organizers of the associa
tion were present.
The sum of $170,500,000 is the larg
est gift ever asked of the nation and >
It has the endorsement of the War •
Department, the officials of which re- |
alize the need for raising this war >
relief fund. At the meeting Friday !.
arrangements were made to send j
speakers throughout the country and j
Maryland will hear many noted per- •
sons.
That all Maryland may know what 1
comfort and aid the workers of the ;
Young Women’s Christian Association |
are giving the soldier in France, and 1
how The Girl He Left Behind Him j
and The Girl Who had to Take His ;
Place are being cared for, virtually
every preacher in Maryland on Sun- j
day, September 22, will tell his con- i
gregation what is being done by the !
girls of the Blue Triangle.
That day has been christened Blue
Triangle Sunday and letters request
ing the pastors to help in Its observ
ance are being sent out this week by
Miss Florence Wilbur, organizer for
Maryland. Every Sunday School su-
Eerintendent will also be asked to tell
isschool of the wonderful work be
ing done by the devoted women of
the state and country.
ddie Y. W. C. A. is one of the seven
i efficient organizations which has won
the approval of the government and
of the War Department because of
the way it is handling its war relief
work both in Europe and in this coun
try. Its hostess houses have proven
j to be one of the best forces for good
and the way its organization has mob
ilized the women power of the coun
i try to take the places of men re
| leased for military duty has been
highly commended.
MRS. JAMES S. CUSHMAN
Chairman of the National War Work
Council of Young Women’s Christian
Association who has received a
from President Wilson and other impor
tant persons commending the splendid
| welfare work of the council both at
home and abroad.

Greets You
If you will stop and look into Nathan’s window you
will see an exact reproduction of the famous Statue of
Liberty that stands at the gateway to New York, and
greets all who come up by Sandy Hook to land upon
American Shores. Bartholdi, the famous French sculptor,
produced this statue upon an order from the French gov
ernment. If this statue is to mean anytning to American
citizens in the future; if Liberty is to flourish in the world;
if the continual menace to the ©world’s peace and safety
is to be removed: if Hohenzollernism is to be driven from
its entrenchments and militarism is to be forever put
down, so that the sons and daughters of the present and
future generations may dwell in. safety; if the torch of
!
Liberty is to continue to burn and blaze Freedom’s trail |
all over the world, then every man. woman and child
must subscribe to the utmost extent to the Fourth Lib
erty Loan. Do it NOW; don’t wait until some other time;
the government has men, it must have money, and you
have the money.
