Washington, D, O. With the subsid
tnct of the epidemic of Influenza the
attention of health ofllrer la directed
to pneumonia, bronchitis and other
diseases of the respiratory system
which regularly cause a large number
of deuths, especially during the winter
season. According to Itupert llluo,
Surgeon General of tha United Slates
Public Health Service, these diseases
will be especially prevalent this win
ter unleaa the people are particularly
careful to obey health Instructions.
"The present epidemic," said Sur
geon General Blue, "haa taught by hit
ter experience how readily a condition

Diajr go on to pneumonia and death.
.Although the worst of tha epidemic Is
over, there will continue to be a large
number of scattered eases, many of
them mild and unrecognised, which
will be danger spots to be guarded
against" The Surgeon General likened
tha prevent situation to that after
great Ore, saying, "No fir chief who
understands his buslnesa stop playing
tha bos on the charred debris as soon
aa the flames and visible lira have dis
appeared. On the contrary, ha con

"Then yon fear another outbreak of

tha Surgeon General, "but unleaa the
people learn to realise tha seriousness
of the danger they will be compelled to
pay a heavy death toll from pneumo

"It la encouraging to observe that
people are beginning to learn that or

germ laden mucus, such droplets are

Ignorant people cough or sneeikj with
out covering their mouth and nose. It
l also good to know that people have
learned something about the value of
fresh air. In summer, when people
are largely out of doors, tha respira
tory diseases (coughs, colds, pneumo
nia, etc.) are Infrequent; la the fall,

have been sold at auction In London.
Mme. de Falbe'a pearls were sold
for $237,000, the largest amount ever
paid for any article of art or luxury
sold at auction. Annual Interest on
the sum would be approximately $12,

they become more expensive than

Self-control Is an easy matter wheu
we are alone,- says New Success Maga
zine. But the moment our Uvea are
thrown In with others, then comes the
struggle. To maintain our equanimity,
to restrain the sharp retort, the Impa
tient exclamation, to get along smooth
ly with disagreeable people, without
friction or jarring this Is the great
life test This Is what builds charac
ter, ' what tests manhood or woman
hood, what makes the Ideal employee.
Two Discoveries, i -A
long time ago, a keen observer of
human nature put on record his dis
covery that a small borrower never
leaves the doorway of a bank without
looking one way and walking the oth

turned up. B1b conclusion, after years
of patient observation, Is that one nev
er sees a small boy and a brass band
