Churchill has made a fair proposition
to the Irish people by telling them that
"whenever the Irish people agree
the kind of a government they want,
England will give it to them." There
is too much truth in the old saying that
"where there are two Irishmen there

is a riot." Let the Irish people agree

Chief of Police Stillinger is to be
commended for having provided the
young folks a place to coast by fencing
off a portion of First street and guard
ing it so that there will he no danger
of teams or automobiles getting in the
way of the coasters. This is healthful
sport and the young people are enjoy
it immensely and, with the street
fenced off and guarded as at present,
there is almost no danger. This action
by the chief is appreciated by parents
ns well as the young folks.
INFLUENZA IS BAD
IN ILLINOIS TOWN
James Bumgarner, of Moscow, is in
receipt of a letter from his son-in-
law, a physician at Aurora, Illinois,
telling of the influenza situation
there. He says the number of deaths
there has been appalling and that the
doctors are unable to attend to all
of the cases. The deaths have been
averaging about six daily and the un-
dertakers are unable to bury the dead
as fast as they die. One undertaker
had 16 bodies in his establishment at
one time, awaiting burial.
