The perms, like the German, crippe. pneiiinoni i, mi bereulosis and (he resi marshall all their forces. Kvery sufferer is a cui helcliini? disease as a German hauery belches shells.

And it's such an unneeessaiy peril, If people would only keep thejr coughs, j sneezes and salivary secretions to themselves, there wouldn't he any of . these epidemics. There would only ' he sporadic cases, dying oui wiili ! spreadinc. And that would mean an inealciiahle navinir In comfort, energy, ! efTifieney and human life. The army medical corps pays that j nearly all Ihe sickness and deaths in ( our new armies have beer, caused by j "respiratory diseases," such ait pneu- j monia, measles, mumps, diphtheria,; meningitis, influenza and tubciculoMK. All these ailments are communicated In the same way, by the transfer of nasal anil mouth secretions. The sickness rate in all our military camps would be cut to a minimum, they nay if the soldiers and the general public would only stop careless cough iiiR. ) sneezing and spilling. And so could the sickness rale in every communi ty. t It would be literally equivalent io a great military victory, or the rais ing of a great army, if we'd all stop the ai.W .pfiu'Uce of coughing and sneezing into other people's faces and spitting germs all over the neighbor hood. TOURISTS NOT WANTED Fati'opean touring is, naturally, tit a low ebb. -There will not be any sort of rush to ihe Old World litis year on Ihe part of pleasure-seekers or curl-osity-monRcrs, for Ihe very good rea son that would he travellers will find every step beset wiih difneuliiies.

Small as the iouiM trallic has be come, there Is si ill too much of ii to suit our European friends. An Am erican correspondent in Park, reports that that c.iiy is finding H If burden-Ull( ed by the presence of Americans whose business is trivial or has noth ing to do wilh the war. II is much the same In London and other allied capitals. The nations are In grlru earnest about the war. and need all their re sources for it. They want to. be hos pitable to all Americans, but they can not help resenting die sharing of their food, lodging, nan; port at ion. etc., wiih people who have no just claim to them. Most.
