SPANISH INFLUENZA JUST GRIP
CAMOUFLAGED UNDER NEW HAM
Most Authorities Now Agree That This Disease Is Simply
The Old-Fashioned Grip, The Same That Has Swept
Over The World Times Without Number. Since 1831
- The United States Has Had Fiv e Epidemics.
Tha Last Epidemic In 1839-90 Came i spread on thickly and covered with
From Russia by Way of France and 'two thicknesses of hot flannel cloths.
Wag Given a French Name, LaGrippe.
This Time It Comes by Way of Spain.
ORIGIN OF THE DISEASE
Spanish influenT-a, which appeared in
Spain in May, has swept over the
world in numerous epidemics as far
hack as history runs. Hippocrates re
fers to an epidemic in 412 B. C. which
is regarded by many to have been in
fluenza. Every century has had its at
taches. Beginning with 1831, this coun
trr has had five epidemics, the last in
Grip, or influenza as it s now called
usually begins with a chill followed by
aching, feverishness and somotimes
nausea and dizziness, and a general
fooling of weakness and depression.
The temperature is from 100 to 104,
and tho fever usually lasts from three
to five days. Tho gorms attack the
mucous mcmbrano, or lining of the air
passages) noso, throat and bronchial
tubes there is usually a hard cough,
especially bad at night, often times a
.sore throat or tonsilitis. and frequent
ly all the appearances of a severe head
Go to bed at the first symptoms
take a purgative, and plenty of nour
ishing food, remain perfectly quiet and
don't worry. Nature herself is the on
ly "cure" for influenza and will throw
ff tho attack if only ym conserve
your strength. A little Quinine, Aspirin
er Dover's Powder may be given by
the physician's directions to allay the
aching. Always call a doctoi, since the
chief dangor of grip is in its weaken
ing of feet on the system, which allows
complications to develop. Those are
hiofly pneumonia and bronchitis, some
times inflammation of the middlo ear,
er heart affections. For these reasons,
it is very important, that the patient
remain in bod until his strength re
turnsstay in bed at least two days or
more after the fever has left you, or
if you are over 50 or not strong, stay
in bed four days or moro, according to
the severity of the attack.
Leave the clothing loose around the
neck as the heat of the body liberate

These vapors, inhaled with each breath.
carry the medication directly to tM
parts affected. At the same time, Va-
poRub is absorbed through and stimu
lates the skin, attracting the blood te
the surface, and thus aids, in relieving
the congestion within.
NO OCCASION FOR PANIO
There is no occasion for penle in-
fluonza or grip has a very low percent
age of fatalities not over one death
out of every four hundred cases, ae
cordinw to the N. C. Board of Health.
The chief danger lies in complications
arising, attacking principally patients
in a run down condition those who
don't go to bed soon enough, or those
who got up too early.
HOW TO AVOID THE DISEASE
Evidence seems to prove that this is
a germ disease, spread principally by
human contact, chiefly through cough
ing, sneezing or spitting, bo avoia per
son, havinff colds which means avoid
crowds common drinking cups, rouer
towels, etc Keep your bodily strength
by plenty of exercise in the open air,
and good food.
KEEP FREE FROM COLDS
Above all. avoid colds, as colds irri
tate tho lining of the air passages and
render . them much better breeding
places for the gorms.
Use Viek's VapoRub at the very first
sign of a cold. For a head cold, melt
a little VapoRub in a spoon and inhale
the vapors, or better still, use VapoRub
in j benzoin steam kettle. If tins is
not availablo, use an ordyinary tea
kettle. Fill half full of ooiling water,
put in half a teaspoon o? VapoRub
from time to time keep the kettle
just slowly boiling and inhale the

CITY HAS LEGAL RlGaTiOVER-PjlOPUCTION NOT

This Decision Is Given By
Judge Mky In Case
A city has a legal right to amend its
charter to re-assess, property . providing
that in ease an assessment for the con
struction of good roads is found to be
invalid by anT higher authority. The
decision is by Judge Percy Kelly in the
case entitled J. M. Brown' and others
against the City of Silverton. .'Judgo
Kolly has entered an' order that le
caso of Mr. Brown against Silverton be
It was on April 27, 1914, that the
City of Silverton passed an ordinance
providing for a hard surface concrete
pavement on McClaine street. Later
it was claimed that tho city, in passing
such an ordinance, ignored remonstran
ces ana 'hat the improvements had
boon forced on tho plaintiffs.'
In the suit of Lais against the City
of Silverton, the supreme court of Or
gon handed down an opinion adverse
to the. city. Then tho city passed an
amondmont to the city charter provid
ing for the reassessment of property.
Council Passed Resolution.
August 6, ' 1918, Silverton council
passed a resolution declaring the dis
trict especially benefitted by the street
improvement. Sept. 4, 1917, te iut ,
orty adjoining tho paving was assessed
causing a lien on the property.
In the case on trial against tho city,
the plaintiffs asked for a temporary in
junction against the city to prevent the
selling of property for assessments and
cancelling tho assessments and remov
ing tho cloud against tho title of land
on McClaine street.
As the council had submitted tho
amendment to the city charter provid
ing that should a higher legal authori
ty dcclaro invalid tho first assessment
that tho council could rc-assess, and
tlint the people had voted in favor of
the amendment 345 to 144 against, the
decree was entered .that the rt-aw--
ment was valid and the case dismissed.

In order to stimulate tho lining of Ipors. VapoRub can be had in three , si
the air passages to throw off the grip
germs, to aid in loosening tne pniegm
and keeping the air passages open, thus
making tho breathing easier, Vick's
VapoRub will be found effective.
Hot, wet towels should be applied over
the throat, chest and back between
the shoulder Wades to open the pores.
Then VapoRub should be rubbed in
ver the parts until the skin is red,
es at all druggists. While eomparatave

it is the standard home remedy in the
south and wost "for all forms of cold
troubles over six million jnra were
sold last year. VapoRub is particularly
rocommended for children's croup or
cfnlila. as it is externally applied and
can, therefore, be used freely and often
without the sligMCBt narnnui uiiccm.

Oregon Has Gone "Over Top"
In Dairy reriomances As
. Ia Other Tilings.,
J. D. Mickle, state dairy and food
commissioner, declares in his biennial
report that there is no cause for fear
that the dairy business will bo over
done in this state from now on. Hit
" Thero has been some apprehension
in some quarters lest the dairy business
6 overdone. In this direction our of
fice has taken some pains to make care
ful investigations, end our eoncusion
that thero ig absolutely no danger
of over-production from this on."
His report, as it relates to the dairy
industry, is very optimistic. He points
out that fatmcrg and dairymen aro now
using tho Babcock cream tester as
means or weeding ou the "slacker"
cows, and the result is that bettor dairy
herds are being built up in this state
"Formerly it was thought necessary
to go east, or to Europe for well brci
stock to build up and fortify our herds,
but this is no longer necessary," ho
says. "Oregon breeders are just as
alert and just as expert as any ,and
their stork is on a par with the best.

milk records, the buttcrfat records, tho

else on earth. Oregon may be said to

formance as Bhe has done in so many
Commissioner Mickle points out that

For moro than three years American philanthropy lias been
a large factor In keeping alive Armeulau, Syrian, Greek and other
exiles and refugees of Western Asia.
On two former occasions 1 have appealed to the Amcrlean
people in behalf of these homeless sufferers, whom the vicissitudes
of war and massacre had brought to the extremest need.
The response bus been most generous, but now the period of
rehabilitation Is at hand. Vastly larger sums will he required to
restore these once prosperous, but now Impoverished, refugees to
their former homes than were required merely to sustain llfo In
their desert exile.
It Is estimated that about 4,000,000 Armenian, Syrian, Greek
nnd other war sufferers In the Near Enst will require outside help
to sustain them through the winter. . Many of them are now
hundreds of miles from their homeland. The vast majority of
them are helpless women and children, Including 400,000 orphans.
The American Committee for Relief In the Nenr East Is

AS IN PEACE SO IN RELIEF
AMERICA SHOULD LEAD THE WORLD
When the nbove mrstisirc of thf Tresldent was placed before Pr, flsmnet T. Duttnn,
Chairman of tli Kxeeutlve Committee of the Nenr Knt Relief, he snld : "This
appeal (if President Wilson to the American people asking their support to tha
nttempt of the American Committee for Relief In the Near East to raise la January
at least thirty millions of dolhirs, gives a national eharneter to that effort.
"The President ha spoken several timet to the entire world In favor of sneh
wise and henefleent reconstruction as will make the world safe for all people. The
present appeal Is marie In the faee of the greatest tragedy of the war. It Is beyond
Kurope, In the Near Knat that human wretchedness at present centers."
About the authenticity of the reports of Turkish persecution. Dr. Mutton, said: i
"Cruelties more diabolical thnn any In history have been perpetrated by the Ottoman
government, and have been reported by absolutely trustworthy eye-witnesses at tha
Amerlean Hmhnasy In Constantinople. Tlw nnreallty of such perseentlon to an
Amerlenn, aa well as the thonsamle of miles between ns and this greatest crime of
civilization, has kept manv Amerlenns, so far, from feelfntf this demand upon their
humanity and Justice, keenly."
WILL YOU PICK OUT THOSE WHO SHALL PERISH?
RcR-ardlnR- the present actual state of the peoples of the Near East. Dr. Pntton
said : "Htnrvntlon has become so common In these landa that one if our workers
sent the following report, 'Heroic men and women who have strained every energy
to save lives, now have the unthinkable task of picking out those who shall perish.'
Thi Is the human preaeure baek of the slogan, 'They shall not perish' twlng used
.In the campaign for thirty millions of dollars." .
It. Dutton was asked If he believed the American people were tired of giving,
fie said : "America's tnoni'y is going out of her pockets faaier than ever lu her history,
because it la America's part In this frlglrtful world cataclysm. It Is to these people
we owe In part the debt of our untouched homea, our unvlolated famlllea, and our
almost normally conducted Industrie. For these things are thirty millions of dollars
an Bdiijuote return? When the American people come to reallie the situation In th
Near Kaat as It actually la, I think sot."
In concluding hi comment upon the President's argent appeal Dr. Dottos said :
"Aa the President la trying to lead the nations to a Just peace to he desires that
