■ V., The Third Floor is Now The Greatest Store Idaho has ever known, or will for many a day, is dying by the yard. Protect yourself while you can! Williamson doés what he says—cost what it may. He said out by January lst-r take the tip! For it's gone. Williamson gave his thousands of friends and customers six weeks' fair warning. Hundreds availed themselves and bought furniture anâ carpets for less than any merchant could at wholesale. The opportunity is closed forever to those who said: "Oh, well, wait a while!" Now then the Third Floor is gone, and all its splendid well-bought merchandise. WILLIAMSON HAS MADE UP HIS MIND TO KILL THIS STORE— PUT IT OUT OF BUSINESS BY JANUARY 1ST. He has started the final wind up by beginning at the top and slashing, clearing the entire insti tution of everything. Now the Second Floor is next. THAT FAVORITE GREAT DEPARTMENT OF WILLIAMSON'S—known the country over as the finest, most select as well as practical stock of Women's Ready-to-Wear Garments—the Famous Art Department, all the Millinery, etc., IS DOOMED. The orders are signed. To close this floor in the shortest time possible, Williamson is going to give you all a last chance to buy SUITS, COATS, DRESSES, MILLINERY, ETC., for less than one-half of what you'll have to pay—must pay or go without—when it is gone. We give now last warning. We caution you for your own sake not ours to get busy. -IF m m m if m if If Jr PT, m if if m if if m m i i # if * y if if if if if l * See window display tonight in entrance window.

INFLUENZA .ARE BEING CARED FOR BETTER HERE THAN ELSEWHERE It is not an accident that there have Been so few deaths and that so many of the influenza cases in Moscow are mild. It is due to the splendid care the patients are getting and the ex cellent system of caring for the men .as soon as they show symptoms of the disease. Great credit is due Cap tain Felker, commandant and head of the entire military department here and to Lieutenant-Doctor Kotalik as well as to President Lindley and the entire university staff. But these men are too modest to take the credit due them and they give the credit to others. A statement sent to The .Star-Mirror by the university gives .great credit to the people of Mos cow, who, no doubt, deserve all of the kind things said about them. The statement follows: - -I . The mothers throughout the state -who have sons in the S. A. T. C. at the University of Idaho need have no Tear lest their boys are not being giv en the best and most tender care, r The citizens of Moscow with their customary generous and efficient aid are helping the military and Univers tty officials in every possible way to check the epidemic of influenza. Every woman in the city or surround ing country who has a boy in the ser vice, or who feels for those who have, is tireless in her efforts, to bring com fort and cheer to the sick lads in the ■ hospitals. The soliciting and preparing of the food for both the Inland and A. K. E. .hospitals has been taken charge of (by Miss Charlotte Lewis, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. E. Lewis, a gov ernment Red Cross dietician. Mrs. Lewis has placed her well equipped kitchen with all its modern utensils and supplies at the disposal of the .hospital. Mrs. and Miss Lewis aided by Miss .Florence Richardson and all the mem bers of the household have spent every da$ since the epidemic began, planning ''and preparing nourishing and dainty dishes 4o tempt the appe tite of the sickest and most homesick boy. The kitchen has been a scene of .great activity from morning to night. Ladies from the country arrive at ear ly hours bringling the supplies of -chickens, milk and cream for the day. Town ladies come with custards and puddings, orderlies arrive at noon and night to bear away the steaming kettles of fragrant broth and great pans of creamed chicken, junkets and jello. The city of Moscow deserves the commendation of the state of Idaho for so ably "carrying on," both thru individual and organized effort, in the present difficult cireurastances.

SPANISH INFLUENZA IS EPIDEMIC HERE Many Cases Develop Into Deadly Pneumonia. Easier to Prevent Than Cure. How to Avoid. The constant daily increase of Spanish Influenza reported by local physicians shows clearly that many people are failing to take the simple ordinary precautions necessary to avoid infection. For, while influenza after its development, is sometimes difficult to cure, it is an easily pre ventable disease. r The best plan is to begin treatment before the first symptom starts. For no other disease will develop so quick ly or spread so rapidly. You may feel fine today—be sick tomorrow and lose a week or more of work. You will indeed be fortunate if pneumonia does not develop. The air today is full of influenza germs. Every breath you take is like ly to draw them into your nose and throat. by killing the germs before they spread throughout your body. There is probably no safer or surer way to do this than to go to the nearest drug store and get one oi tne lamous ny omei Inhaling Outfits consisting of a bottle of the pure Oil of Hyomei and a little veat-pocket, hard rubber You can prevent the disease inhaling device into, which a few drops of the Oil of Hyomei are poured. Just breathe this Oil of Hyomei . deep into your nose, throat and lungs and every particle of air that enters your breathing organs will be charg ed with an antiseptic, germ killing balsam that will absolutely destroy the germs of Influenza that have found lodgment there. You can't do this too often. No ordinary night and morning gargling or throat spraying will be sufficient so long as during the day you come in constant contact with infection. The Hyomei inhaler is small and can be conveniently carried in a hand-bag or vest pocket. Every half hour or so throughout the day take it out and draw a few breaths of its pure healing air into your nose and throat. By doing this you can prevent infection and check the further spread of the disease even though you are coming in direct contact with it. This is an inexpensive treatment as the Inhaler will last a lifetime and further sup plies of the Oil of Hyomei can be had at any drug store for a few cents. NOTE: Oil of Hyomei, so strongly recommended above for the prevention of Spanish Influenza is not a new discovery but is the application of an old and time-tried treatment to a new disease. Hyomei has been a standard in the treatment of catarrh and colds for almost twenty years and is sold by druggists everywhere. Hundreds of people in Moscow and vicinity keep a Hyomei outfit with inhaler on the bath-room shelf for regular winter use. If you have one get it out now and use it. If you haven't one, go to the nearest drug store and .get one today. It is the duty of every person, not only for his own sake but for the community to do all in his power to prevent fur ther spread of this epidemic and to stamp it out. . Latah County Records.
