THE GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE.
In the introductory paragraphs of
kis highly interesting message, Gov
ernor Davis strikes a new and pro
foundly significant note. He points
out that the great struggle has taught
all mankind the necessity of viewing
events with an enlarged vision, of
casting aside all personal and even
national self-interest, and of realiz
ing the responsibility of promoting
the general welfare of the race.
"The end of the great war," he
says, "has brought to the state, as to
the nation, many problems calling for
the exercise of wise discretion and
right motives. The solution of these
problems is not to be found in the
query as to whether proposed re
forms will benefit one class or one
Industry. The only test which your
constituency asks you to apply to leg
islation proposed before you is wheth
er or not it promotes the general wel
fare. I feel sure that you will not
miss your great opportunity in the
consideration of trivial and self-seek
These are wise words. They are
a valuable caution and suggestion
to men about to be engaged in making
laws that will determine the develop
ment or retarding of the state of
Idaho, and her people. Too often the
whole legislative session has been
taken up by factional fights in which
one section of the state was violently
pitted against another section. If har
mony could be introduced into the
state legislature, if the motives that
actuated the people's representatives
were concerned entirely
highest good to the greatest number,
if fighting for the petty commercial
advantage of one part of the state
were not permitted to embarrass and
injure the well-being of another, the
citizens would feel that the millenium
was not entirely of the stuff that
dreams are made of.
It is to be hoped that the governor's
broad and generous minded view of
the duties of the legislators coincides
with that held by the legislators them
Ra te sa
Any one who had even the slightest
(connection with the administartion
of the affairs of the S. A. T. C. will
appreciate this rich story which is
vouched for by a victim of conflicting
and contradictory war department or
ders. The tale goes something like
this. A telegram at eight in the morn
ing; "Buy blankets for the boys." At
ten, "Do not buy blankets for the
boys." At two, "Borrow blankets for
the boys." At four, "Do not borrow
blankets for the boys.' At seven, "See
that the boys are comfortable.'
PS Rs «
That the drive for funds for the
Armenians and Syrians has the great
est backing in the world is indicated
by a telegram received from the Red
Cross. The Red Cross, which is the
most honored welfare organization in
the world today, has expressed in no
uncertain terms its full confidence in
the Armenian Relief committee and in
the imperative demand for such relief.

SUCCESSFUL MEETING IS HELD
Methodist Minister Discusses Vast
Program for Reconstruction work
That the district meeting of the
ministers and laymen of the Metho
dist church held at Lewiston yester
day and today was a distinct success,
is the statement of the Rev. Mr. H. O.
Perry, who returned on this after
Mr. Perry stated that the chief mat
ter before the meeting was the con
sideration of the Methodist church ad
vance program for reconstruction.
Their world program involves the
of the sum of $100,000,000
which will be expended not only in
religious work but in philanthropic
and relief work of various kinds in
the war region and at home.
ORDINANCE PROVIDES FOR PR0
W FLOATING, ISSUING, AND EN
FORCING QUA RANTIN'
YET FREE FROM "FLU"
Number of New Cases Developed
in Potlatch is now worse than it has
been at any time during the epidemic
there being about twenty-five cases
reported. A quarantine has again
been placed on the picture show
house and although there are a num
her of cases among the high school
students, all effort will be made to
keep the schools going. The Red
Cross is maintaining Mrs. Viola Nel
son, a graduate nurse of St. Luke's
hospital to act as a visiting nursery
along the lines of educational work
and home care of the sick. In most
instances the cases have been light.
In order that Increased power
might be given to city authorities
respect to protecting the public from
contagious disease, Mayor Truitt and
the city council last night passed
ordinance conferring such powers
promulgate and enforce a quarantine
j ns were not already provided for
previous legislation. The situation
with reference to Spanish influenza
such that the city fathers deemed
wise to go on record officially in
(very definite manner so that the
health officers and other responsible
persons might proceed to fulfill their
duties to the public.
The text of the ordinance appears
another page of this issue. It spec
ifically gives the mayor power to en
force a quarantine upon persons, places
of business, private or public dwellings,
boarding or lodging houses, public re
sorts, including schools, theaters, mov
ing picture shows, churches, dance
halls, lodges, pool halls, lodges, res
taurants, and other public places.

MORE DEADLY THAN WAR
Said That Epidemic Cost More Lives
Than American Loss in Battle.
Danger Not Over. Great Care
Necessary to Prevent
The appalling ravages of Spanish
best realized by the statement recent
ly made, that more deaths have re
suited in little more than a month
from this disease dhan through our
whole eighteen months participation
in the battles of the European War.
Our greatest ranger now, declare
authorities, is the great American ten
dency to forget easily and to believe
the peril is over. Competent authori
ties claim the coming of cold weather
is very apt to bring a return of this
disease and there should be no let-up
throughout the winter months of the
following easily observed precautions,
remembering that Influenza is far
easier to prevent than cure.
Influenza is a crowd disease. In
fluenza germs spread when ignorant
or careless persons sneeze or cough
without using a handkerchief. Cover
up each cough or sneeze. Do not spit
on the floor t sidewalk, in street cars
or public places. Avoid the use of
common drinking cups and roller
towels in public places. Breathe some
reliable germicidal and antiseptic air
to destroy the germs that do find
lodgement in your nose and throat.
Remember, no safer precaution
against Influenza could be employed
in this manner than to get Jfrom the
nearest drug store a complete Hyomei
Outfit consisting of a bottle of the
Pure Oil of Hyomei and a little vest
pocket hard rubber inhaling device,
into which a few drops of the oil are
noured. You should carry this In
ïïaler about with you during the day
and each half hour or so put it
your mouth and draw deep breaths
its pure, healing ^germ killing air into
the nassages of your nose, throat and
By destroying germs before they
actually begin work in your blood,
you may make yourself practically
immune to infection.
All these suggestions about Spanish
Influenza are equally true in the pre
vention of colds, catarrh of nose and
throat, bronchitis and even pneumonia.
Don't become careless. Do your part.
Keep the germs away. You may save
yourself a serious illness and the loss
of several weeks work.
