The county chairman is a flu patient and the flu ban on meetings may make speeches during the drive an impossibility, but the drive is going through. The reason the committees are so sure of success is the fact that this drive for funds is of inter est to every person in the county. The $20,460 quota is to go to the seven welfare organizations which are providing comforts, cheering and aiding the morale of our soldiers and sailors at the front. Everyone feels like digging deep into his pockets for such a cause. Anything is too little to do for the boys who are suffering hardships at the front. The scope of the drive has been ex tended so as to afford the boys and girls of America an opportunity to do their share in this great work of caring for the men. This an "earn and give" campaign and money pledged can be paid from money earned during the past summer, money to be earned, or money saved from regular allowances. The money raised by the boys and girls applies to the county quota. There is to be a meeting Wednes day, November 8, if permitted by the county health officer at that time, to be held in Colville in the court house at Ip. m. All the local chairmen who can be present will meet at this time to talk over plans. The central campaign committee eludes: Chairman, W.

MIMKOGRAPH BRIGADE VISITS FRENCH CAPITAL The latest letters from the "mimeo graph bljigade" received by Colville friends If Ted Richardson, tell the story offan interesting trip to Paris, and also! a battle after their return. The Pary episode is related by the letter-writer for that particular week as follows: "When we left where we were be fore we came to where we are now, we were all given twenty-four hours leave in the "city where nobody cares." It all seemed so strange—so mud like a dream —this stepping into a Ford in the midst of Battle, hungry, (censored) and tired of life and a few hours, after landing in the midst of the most wonderful city in the world; we can't remember much about it. George swears he saw the Eiffel tow er and Ted and Hard hold a cherished memory of dinner at the Hotel Con tieital. Marcy and Reggy refuse to commit themselves but Marcy. showed up twelve hours late and Reggy says he understands now why the French fight so hard, and we noted in all the prominent papers, under the police court items, mentions of "Major Race's" visit to the capital. "Seriously, Paris is more beautiful than anything we have ever heard or read about it. Marcy having lived there before the war, acted as guide, and after grooming and a big feed, he loaded us in one of those two-cyl inder oriental taxicabs and showed us the town. "We spin through the boulevards, swing around the Arch of Triumph, over the wonderful bridges of the Seine and turn in the direction of the Eiffel tower. The sights are won derful in the^jftprninK sunlight. Gor geously atulptuA'l'! buildings and statues meet the eye at every turn. The Trocadeio and fountains are wonderful. We swing around through the Tuilleries gardens, spin around the Louvre, and over to No trt Dame. Our eyes are everywhere fascinated by the wonders made by French hands hundreds of years ago. The Hotel de Ville (city hall) is a work of art, as are also the columns of Alexander and too many others to mention. After a while we drive down the boulevard President Wilson and decide to walk a bit. We stop the taxi, pay the bill, wake up Marcy and depart. After all we had read about the awful bombarding and bombing of Paris—especially in Ger man communiques—we were sur- prised not to find a single wrecked building or thoroughfare. "Not having opportunity, rags, or wherewithhal to doll up, and having come direct from the front, we stood out in marked contrast to our gallant comrades who are so heroically hold ing down the Paris front. Every where we see them, fearlessly going about their daily duties, faultlessly made uniforms, white collars, English walking sticks, polished boots and sil ver spurs, tired and careworn from the day's battle. Among them min gle hundreds and hundreds of brave Y. M. C. A. secretaries and workmen caring for their comforts and admin istering to their wants. Brave sol diers of all nations have thronged here to heroically defend the civil population of our besieged cap ital, and are gallantly attending the ladies first. Big, brawny, pink cheeked officers and men doing their bit, guarding the welfare of some poor French maiden, defiently conducting her through the dangerous boulevards, parks and cages of this war-ridden city. Our hearts go out to them in their peril We feel like siackers in their midst and are ashamed and con science stricken at merely whiling aw ay our time at the front when we could be helping in this great work. It would indeed never occur to a stranger that less than thirty miles from this care-free, pleasure hunting city, there was waging one of the most important battles of the war." Professional vs. Amateur Little Nelly told little Anita what she termed a "little fib." Anita—A fib is the same as a story, and a story is the same as a lie. Nelly—No it is not. Anita—Yes, it is, because my father said so, and my father is a professor at the university." Nelly—l don't care if he is. My father is a real estate man, and he knows more about lying than your father. Ready to Bargain "S*ay! What's your hurry?" "I'm trying to get something for my wife."

ESTER DAVIS VICTIM OF DISEASE SOON AFTER ARRIVAL Epidemic Abating Now in Towns— Situation More Serious in Country The first death from Spanish influ enza in Colville occurred Tuesday night when Mrs. Ester Davis, who had but recently arrived with her husband and three children to make her home here, died of the disease. The circumstances surrounding her death make a pathetic story which has aroused the sympathy of Col ville for the bereaved family. Mr. and Mrs. Davis with their three children were the guests of Mrs. Davis' sister, Mrs. A. 0. Thompson, while preparing to move into their newly purchased property in South Basin. Their household goods were not yet unpacked, when Mrs. Davis was taken ill with Spanish influenza. Her three children were ill, as were also the members of the Thompson family, making ten patients in the crowded home, all suffering from in fluen/.a. One of the Davis children is reported to be in a serious condi tion. Mrs. Davis was thirty-five years old and was born in Minnesota. Surviving her are her husband Seth Davis and three children, her mother, Mrs. Inga Linblad of Spokane, throe brothers and three sisters. The brothers are Anton Linblad of Col ville, Alfred Linblad of Canada and Julius Linblad of California; the sis ters are Mrs. William Lawrence of Spokane, Mrs. Walter Davis of Ore gon City and Mrs. A. O. Thompson of Colville. Private funeral services were held Thursday at the McCord Undertaking Parlors, Rev. J. S. Bell officiating. Situation Still Serious It is probable that it will be at least two weeks before schools, or other public meeting places will be open. The influenza situation is thought to be worse in the country districts, but to have abated some what in Colville and other towns of the county. Appeals to Children James Petty appeals to the boys and girls to help fight the flu, saying. "In as much as the .state and county health officers have issued an order closing all schools, churches, picture shows and other public meet ings, it would .seem to be incumbent upon the 2,660 boys and girls in Stevens county to join this warfare to fight the flu in the following ways: 1. By .staying at home as much as possible. 2. By using every precaution to avoid taking cold. 3. By avoiding all unnecessary calf* on neighbors and friends. 4. By going alone when on neces sary errands and returning home a.s soon as possible. 5. By attending no parties or dances, and not congregating in groups. 6. By dispensing with fishing, hunt ing and joy rides. 7. By doing everything you can to protect yourself. 8. By going to bed and .staying there, if you have symptoms, until you are released by your doctor or your nurse. By a coordinated effort of this to a marked degree. Not even the flu ban could keep the youth of Colville from meeting Thursday night to plan Hallowe'en mischief. It would take more than fear of influenza to make Young America forget to congregate on this night of all nights. No seriou.s damage has been reported, most of the "gangs" being content with mis placing various vehicles or following the time honored custom of soaping windows. The Masonic temple was having a difficult time of it Friday morning trying to maintain its gravely dignified air, with a wagon resting on its front steps, almost up to the door. Hallowe'en parties were out of order because of the flu. "Perkins is down and out, isnt he?" "Oh, yes—he told the other day he was paying cash for everything."

Henry, C. L. Townsend. Considerable interest has been shown throughout the state in the contest for supreme court judges. It seems likely that Justices Mitchell, Main and Mount will be elected. Yet the great laboring vote of the state is pledged to W. H. I'emberton, who is also indorsed by the farmers, pro gressive and temperance people. The big interests of the state, including the Spokesman-Review, indorse Mit chell, Main and Mount, which will cause a number of Stevens county pwpla to wonder what is wrong with them.
