All sights of republication of ■fecial dispatches herein are also re ndered. ►er CARBLBSSNESS AND INFLUENZA The authorities have put the in fluenza situation squarely up to the people of Moscow; and whether this city remains open or again has to undergo the very expensive and an noying experience of being closed down will rest entirely with our citi zens. The intelligence with which the privileges due to the lifting of the quarantine are enjoyed, will deter mine whether there will be an out break of new cases or whether the number will be kept down to so few that the general public need not be penalized on account of them. How shall this care be exercised, and from what practices shall the people refrain ? required by the application of a few principles of common sense ought not to be too severe a burden for any one. First and foremost, the mingling of people in even fairly large groups should be minimized. Pleasant as it is to renew social relations with our friends, all gatherings of an unneces sary nature should be cut down to a very few. And in this connection, it may be mentioned that it is nothing short of a crime for a person who feels even slightly indisposed to ac cept an invitation and thrust his com pany upon persons who may suffer serious consequences from the associ ation. There could be nothing more, selfish than for persons with head ache and other symptoms of influenza to refuse to exercise the small amount The self-restraint of self-denial which will keep 'them at home with their own symptoms. In the second place it is the duty of every citizen to see that his system is in good condition, that he lives upon a diet calculated to build up resistance to germs; and that he does not over work, or overplay. Fatigue and the consequent reduction in vitality have had a very dangerous part in the fatalities recorded in this epidemic. Preserving with scrupulous care both internal and external cleanliness, sleeping in well ventilated rooms or on porches, and taking daily adequate exercise in the open air are some of the practices which have become a duty to ourselves and our neighbors, fest M THE MYSTERY "Q" SHIP. Not the least thrilling stories of the great war are those concerning the mysterious "Q" ships, on which the men lay for hours, constantly shelled and killed, and entirely untended un til the opportunity came to sink the enemy. A "Q" ship Is described as a gray, dingy, nondescript kind of ship, perhaps a collier or a coastal tramp, But at a signal her hatchways can dis close glistening 4-Inch guns, and her harmless looking stays can rap out wireless messages. It is the true tales of the "Q" ship's glorious fights against submarines that make one so impatient with fiction dealing with the war. The facts to date are in finitely more stirring than any writer I has been able to Imagine them.

SCHROEDER, Prop. : : : Third Street Phone 250 X ♦♦♦ + How Stevenson would have gloried in the crisp explanations and stories of the men that served on these boats. Gunner Cunningham, wearing a dis tinguished service medal, is showing visitors one of the most famous of the "Q'' boats in London. He points to a hawser reel lying on the deck. "That's a dummy," he says, the skipper's lookout when a subma rine is sighted. This little smokestack is also a dummy—it hides a periscope. The skipper from his look-out would give the range to the hidden gun crews. "No sign of life was to be seen on the ship after a 'panic party' had put off in an open boat until the order Then this forehatch of of "It's came—'Fire." flew open and the sides of that dummy cabin fell outward, and the two 4-inch guns got to work. We settled one U boat with twelve hits out of four teen from one gun and seven out of eight from the other." The crew of this decoy ship hunted submarines in an old steamer called the Stock Force until the forepart of that vessel was blown away by a tor pedo. » fee ta "WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?" A good many of the agencies that are now devoting all their energies to determining what shall be done with the soldier when he returns and how he shall be employed might save them selves a good deal of trouble if they would only realize that when the Am erican fighter comes back, he will de cide those questions for himself and will not ask,—or accept—any one's assistance. Canada has been getting hack her discharged soldiers for a good many months now, and her ex perience in dealing with them ought to be illuminating to the American so cieties organized to cope with the problem. Canada found that after a returned soldier had been employed in a good job for a few days, or weeks, he lost interest in it and wanted to move on. Restlessness personified is the soldier who returns from the front. The at tempt to put a young man used to ac tion and sudden shifts of fortune on logged-off lands in lonely regions would be laughable if it were not so pathetically mistaken. During a year or more of constant change of scene,—from cantonment to transport, to training camp abroad, to the "hardening" trenches, to bat tle, to rest billets, and back Into the fight again,—the American soldier has, without question, developed in an exertme degree the "Where do we go from here?" habit. Returning to home soil in the pro cess of demobilization, he begins his history of desire for variety by chaf ing at his detention in a debarkation camp. And from then on he has con tinued to display impatience with mo to a ] jjf e home, notony and humdrum routine of typic The boys will want good jobs—and they should have them—and they will want their jobs in places that show a little get-up-and-get, with respect to entertainment and abundant variety in occupation. A good many pairs of young eyes must have gazed forlornly out this morning upon the rain which was wrecking the coasting on the hills of Moscow. During the past few weeks the youth of the city have spent a good part of every twenty-four hours on Van Buren and First streets, and the sound of laughing and shouting and calls for "track" have broken un til late at night the silence of streets which are all too seldom enlivened by the noise of healthy young people en joying out-door sports. His must have been a sour heart, indeed, that did not rejoice in those speeding flexible flyers and the plainer home-made craft on which many a gallant little fellow made a pecüous descent to Main street, ed in the pages of the historian Livy a precedent for the surrender of the German fleet. That ancient chronicler tells how, as an ar tide of the peace agreement which The Bishop of Durham has discover fe* n *> ended the second Punic war, Carth age had to surrender to Rome the whole of her battle fleet. The good bishop does not intimate that the an tiquity and respectability ot the prec edent will make the relinquishment of his vessels any more agreeable to the commander of the German navy. The big farm Is constantly said to have disappeared, and the general public is taught to believe that the ranches of the old romantic days, that were nearly as big as a New England state have all been divided up into tracts of 160 acres or less. There is still, it seems, one fair-sized farm of 200,000 acres In opration. It is so big that it sprawls over both Montana and Wyoming. fcä "That editorial about the returning soldiers getting no sort of welcome in Moscow hit my son just right," said a mother to The Star-Mirror. "My boy said, 'Mother, they seem to think lots of us when we go away, but they don't care a hang for us when we come back, and I'm going to get out of here.' " The lad had been in the navy for many months. Almost Free From Flu. Kendrick now has but very few cases of flu, as nearly all of those who were taken ill about two weeks ago have recovered. The prospects now look very encouraging in the town itself. It seems that the ridges tributary to Kendrick are experienc ing rather a severe epidemic this week. American ridge has over thirty cases, Fix ridge about the same num ber and Texas ridge and Cedar Creek ridge also have a considerable num ber, with a few on Potlatch ridge. It is to be hoped that the end of the week will see improved conditions in the community.—Kendrick Gazette. College Building Dedicated. TOKIO. —A new college building, one of the finest educational build ings in Japan recently was dedicated at the Aoyamo Gakuin, the well known American Methodist Episcopal institution of Tokio. The building was presented by Guijiro Katsuta of Kobe, a member of the House of Peers. The ceremonies were held in the presence of a distinguished gathering of Japanese and many American mis- sionaries were present. Congratula- tions were offered by T. Nakahashi, the minister of education, and other leading Japanese. Mr. Katsuta was student of the college. -RS Hotel Moscow Arrivals. Jan. 10.—L. H. Pinkham, C. C. Johnson, Bruce Ellis, Fred I.
