One of the most Important topics

J Ray Pemberton mentioned the vari
.'. nhases of the 'flu" appearance in
Salem and presented some trite rules
applicable to tne appearance ui me
disease. Dr. Pemberton advises those
iriio have contracted the disease to
a, to bed and stay there until tie
malady passes. This is urged as the
best means of conserving individual
strength, as the "flu" is a severe drain
In discussing the smallpox epidemic,
Br. Pemberton snid that upon first
appearance, it is difficult for the lay
man to distinguish first symptoms of
"flu" from those of smallpox. It is
noticeable, however, that the ftouy
body temperature at first is higher In
the latter disease, subsiding as the
case progresses, while Increased tem
perature in "flu" cases usually persists
tor a longer period.
The doctor pointed out that most 01
the objections to vaccination, arises
from the occasional inflammation of
the immunize member. It was empha

that most of the poorer walks, border
upon vacant) or neglected property,
and measures were discussed by which
owners of these properties could be
forced to take care of the disreputable
and dangerous sidewalks.
J. W. Maruney gave a comprehen
sive talk upon floral planting and care.
He named many attractive plants and
shrubs, which could be utilized by Sa
lem property owners in creating at
tractive residence surroundings. Mr.
Maruney namedj various plants, the
Mexican orange, cotonestea and Eng
lish laurel, as especially novel and at
tractive floral acquisitions. The uni
form planting of trees and shrubbery
through a general plan was also urged
by the speaker, who named the Orlen- j
tai Sycamore as being a good tree for
reet side planting. Mr. Maruney re- !
minded rose lovers that February 28
