At a meeting last .evening of tho
Business Men's league of the Com
mercial club, representative business
men agreed to go down in their pock
ets and each contribute $5 towards giv
ing Salem a really distinct holiday ap
pearance. It was figured that about 200 would
be necessary with which to purchase

Golf players who are anxious to keep
in swing, vet not quite so anxious to
play in the "soft" .Irish weather so
common about this time of year, will
now have a fine chance to Sfting their
clubs safe from overhanging clouds and
tho moisture of the Willamette valley.
At the annual moating of the Coun
try club last evening, held at the Com
mercial club, it was decided to estab
lish in door golf playing. This is done
by securing a room in the business dis
trict, putting in a sloping floor and
with a canvas at one end, smash away
at the balls, with the assiirauee that
the balls will return to the plyor, thus
eliminating the expense of an iu-door

Theodore Both said he didn't intend to
put in Portland bread and H. S. Poi
sal told of his trouble once beforo when
free bread coupons were distributed by
an outsido firm trying to got on tho

Dan Fry thought if the Portland
folks wanted to establish a bakery here
it would be nil right to patronize them

Spanish Influenza, which appeared
in Spain in May, has all the appear
ance of grip or la grippe, whicu las
swept over the world in numerous epi
demics as far back as history runs,
Hippocrates refers to an epidcmiie in
412 B. C. which is regarded by many
to have been influenza. Every century
jhns had its attacks. Beginning with
is.il, tnis country has had live epidem
ics, the last in 1SS9-90.
Grip, or influenza, as it is now call
ed, usually begins with a chill follow-
i by aeliiug, fevenshness'and some
times nausea and dizziness oud a gen-
eral feeling of weakness and depres
sion. The temperature is from lUO to
lot, and the fever usually lasts from
three to five days. The germs attack
hc mucous membrane, or l:mng of the
air psr-ago nose, thWiat and bronchial
! tubes theie is usually a 'earj cough,
! especially bad at night, often times a
sore throat or toiu'ilitia, and frequently

EXTERN AL APPLICATIONS
In order to stimulate the lining of j
tho air passages to throw off the gripl
germs, to aid in loosening tho phlegm
and keeping the nir passges open, thus'
making tho breathing easier, Vick's;
VapoHab will be found effective. Ilot,
wet towels should bo appLed over thoj
throat, chest and back between the
shoulder blades to open the pores. Theuj
Vapo-Iiub should bo rubbed in over
the parts until tho skin i9 led, spread )
on thickly and covered with two thick-;
nesses of hot flannel cloths. Leave the j
clothing loose mound the neck as tho v
heat of - the body liborates tho ingre- f "
dients in the form of vapors. Theao j
vapors, inhaled with each breath, car- j
ry the medication directly to tho parrs !
affected. At the same time, VapcRub i
is absorbed through and stimulates tho
skin, attracting tho blood to the sur
'face and thus aids in relieving tho con- r
!gcstion within. t
HOW TO AVOID THE DISEASE
Evidcnco seems to prove that this in -a
germ disease, spread principally by
'iiiTiiiuiL euni-atu, ciut'riy xurouyn cuugu-
ing, sneezing or spitting. So avoid per-
'sons having colds which means avoid-1
ing crowus common drinking cups, j
roller towels, etc. Keep up your bod;ly j
strength by plenty of exercise in tho j
open air, and good food. i
KEEP FEEE FEOM COLDS j
Abovo all, keep free from colds, ns

Vick'g VnpoKub at the very first sign
of a cold. For a head cold, melt a lit-1
tie in a spoon and inhale the vnpurs,
