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
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,
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. I

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
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

"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

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

tion and sudden shifts of fortune on
logged-off lands in lonely regions
would be laughable if it were not so
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

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
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
"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
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.
