The Graham Case
References to what someone in
Washington, ,who must have had a
very fragmentary knowledge of the
casc'fcay' 'itbottt 'Vermont and " Ver
monters, are in bad taste. No one
can feel worse about the situation
than those who have been closest to
Governor Horace Graham, and, so far
as The XJcrald knows, no one in such
relationship would presume for a
moment to demand anything but com-1
plctc and impartial justice.
The Graham case is now in the
courts, and the trial of the former
auditor.' on the charges reported by
the," grand jury will proceed in an
orderly and lawful manner. When
the end of that trial comes, The Her
ald Relieves that - full justice will
have been done and that some of
those who criticized public officials
and publicists in connection there
with may see a new light.
Meanwhile, the fact that this or
that politician or such and such ?.
newspaper has undertaken "to drive
Graham out of office" should not be
permitted quite such full demonstra

Washington, D. C. -(Special.) Ac
cording to a report made to the United
States Public Health Service, the epi
demic of influenza in Spain has al
ready caused an increase In the preva
lence and deaths from pulmonary tu
berculosis. : A similar association be?
tween influenza and .tuberculosis was
recently made by Sir 'Arthur'.' News
holme, the, chief medical officer of the
English public health service, in his
analysis of the tubemilos's den,1h rate
in England. .
In order that the people of the Unit
ed States may profit by the experienco
of other countries Surgeon Generat
Itupert Blue of the United States Pub
lic Health Service has just issued a
warning emphasizing the need of spe
cial precautions at the present time.
'Experience seems to indicate," says
the Surgeon General, "that persons
whose resistance has been weakened
by an attack of influenza are peculiar
ly susceptible to tuberculosis. With
millions of its people recently affected
with influenza this country now : of

"Then you consider this a serious
menace V" was asked. "In my opinion
it is, though 1 hasten to add it is dis
tinctly one against which the people
can guard. So far as one can estimate
there are at present about one million
cases of tuberculosis iu the United
States. There is , .unfortunately , no
complete census available to show ex
actly the number of tuberculosis per
sons in each state despite the fact that
most of the stales have made the dis
ease reportable. In New York city,
Where reporting has been in force for

What to Do, " " T
In his statement to the. public Sur
geon General Blue points out how
those who have had influenza should
protect themselves against, fubercnlo
sis. "AH who have recovered from .in
fluenza." says the Surgeon .General,'
', "should "have J their lungs, carefully ex-
; "mined by a -'-competent 'physician. 'In

How to Guard Against Pneumonia.
Common Colds Highly Catching Im
portance of Suitable Clothing Could
Save 100,000 Lives.
fWashington, D. C. With the subsid
ence of the epidemic of influenza the
attention of health officers is directed
to pneuinonia, bronchitis onu .other
diseases" of the respiratory system
whicht' regularly cause a large number
of deaths, especially during the winter
season. According to Itupert Blue,
Surgeon General of the United States
Public Health Service, these diseases
will, be especially, prevalent this win
ter unless the people are particularly
careful to obey health instructions.
"The present epidemic," said Sur
geou General Blue, "has taught by bit
ter experience how readily n condition
beginning apparently as a slight cold
may go on to pneumonia and death.
Although the worst, of the epidemic is
over, there will continue to be a large
number of scattered cases, many of
them mild and unrecognized, which
will be danger, spots to be guarded
against." The Surgeon General likened
the present situation to that after a
great fire, saying, "Xo fire chief who
understands his business stops playing
the hose on the charred debris as soon
as the flames and visible fire have dis
appeared. On the contrary, he con
tinues the water for hours and even
days, for he knows that there is dan
ger of the fire rekindling from smol
dering embers."
"Then .vou fear another outbreak of
influenza?" he was asked. "Not neces
sarily another large epidemic," said
the Surgeon General, "but unless the
people learn to realize the seriousness
of tho danger they will be compelled to
pay a heavy death toll from pneumo
nia and other respiratory diseases.
Common Coids Highly Catching.
"If. is encouraging to observe that
people are beginning to learn that'or
'dinary coughs and colds are highly
catching and are spread from person
to person by means of droplets of
'germ laden mucus. Such droplets are
sprayed into the air when careless or
ignorant people cough or sneeze with
out covering" their niomh and nose. It
:is also good to know that people have
ilearned something about the value of
'fresh air. In summer, when people
iare largely out of doors, the respira
tory diseases (coughs, colds, . pneumo
nia, etc.) are infrequent; in the fall,
as people begin to remain indoors, the
respiralory diseases increase r in the
winter, -when people are prone to stay
in badly ventilated, overheated rooms,
tbe respiratory diseases become very
prevalent. ,
Suitable Clothing Important.
"Still another factor in the produc
tion of colds, pne'-: i.nia and other re
spiratory diseases i.f carelessness or ig
norance of th- people regarding suit
able clothing during the seasons when
'the. weather suddenly changes, sitting
in warm rooms too heavily dressed or,
what is even more common, especially
among women, dressing so lightly that
windows .jure kept closed In order to he
conuortaoiy, warm,
jurious practice.
This is a .-ory in-
Could Save 100,000 Lives.
"I believe we could easily save me
hundred thousand lives annually in
the United States if all tfhe people
would adopt tbe system of fresh air
living followed, for example, in tuber

not!iin T
mysterious about it no specific medi
cine, no vaccine. The important thing
is right living, good food and plenty of

Near the town of Le Cateau,a num
ber of Australian stretcher-bearers
were killed by grenades in attempting
to , remove some German dead
from the field in front, of an Ameri
can machine-gun position. , Thereaf
ter no Australians would be put a
hand on a dead German. In some
cases the bodies wrere dragged to
their burial places by means of a
long rope which allowed the stretch
er-bearers to keep out of range of any
exploding hand-grenades.
The Americans, on the other hand,
hit upon the plan of making the Ger
main prisoners bury their own dead.
ln once instance a Boche prisoner
was summarily shot, because he re
fused to remove the body of one of
his dead companions An examina
tion of the body later led to the dis
covery that it was mined.- The Ger
man was aware of this fact and re
fused to touch it.
In one small town evacuated by the
Germans, many of the beds were
found to be mined. An American of
ficer, tired and worn by a long and
hard fighting, sought rest on a lounge
in a room previously occupied by
German officer. The lounge blew up
and he was instantly killed,
Another officer picked up a pair of
field-glasses left by the Germans and

glasses exploded in his hands and
