Spanish Influenza, 'which appeared
ia Spain in May, has all the appear
ance of grip or la grippe, whicu aas
wept over the world in numerous- epi
demics as far back as hiBtory runs.
Hippocrates refers to an epidiimic in
412 B. C. which is regarded by many
to hare been influenza. Every century
las had its attacks. Beginning with
1831, this country has had five epidem
ics, the last in 1889-90.
Grip, or influenza, as it is now call
ed, usually begins with a chill follow
ed by aching, fovcrishness and some
times nausea and dizziness and a gen
eral feoling of weakness and depres
sion. The temperature is from 100 to
104, and tho fever usually lasts from
throe to five days. The germs attack

HOW TO AVOID THE DISEASE
Evidence seems to prove that this is
a germ diseaso, spread principally by
nuiusi contact, chiefly through cough
in fitting the size of the 4u-ov prunes
to ' the ' needs of the trade, as this is
the only size left .Jfter the government
takes its needs. However, arrange
ments have been made with eastern buy
ers that are satisfactory. . - --.
The prune, pool, for lUtd. included be
tween 2400 and 2500 acres, more than
700 acres than last year.. Taking
everything into consideration, includ
ing tonnage and acreage, the year 1918
has been the greatest prune year ever
experienced in this part of Oregon! ,
The union is operating besides its
Salem, plant that of Dr. Hc&rbrough at
Cresswell. Dr. Bcarbrough had 125 ac
res of prunes in bearing this year from
which he harvested half a million
pounds and for which the gross puy
uicnt was in the neighborhood of $60,
Many of to larger' growers make
claims this year of crops running all the
way from 1 1-4 tons to f our tons of
dried prunes to the acre and the price
has averaged from $180 to $190 a ton.
Tho lowly prune, so despised and
sovclled about by the groceryman a
generation ago has come into its own.
Every government allied with the Unit
ed States has buyers in this country
and now it is the lordly prune, with
the finest crop coming from Oregon

KEEP FREE FROM COLDS
Above all. keeD free from colds, as i
colds irritate the lining of the air pas

Vick'a VapoEub at the very first sign
of a cold. For a head cold, melt a lit
tle in a spoon and inhale the vapors,
sore throat or tonsilitis. and frequently
all tho appearances of a severe cold..
Go to bed at the first symptoms, not
nly for your own sake, but to avoid
spreading the disease to ethers take
a purgative, cat plenty of nourishing
food, remain perfectly quiet and don't
worry. Quinine, Asperin or Dover's
Powder, etc., may be administered by
the physicians, directions to reliove the
aching. But thore is no cure or spe

NOTE: Vick's VapoRub is the dis
covery of a North Caroliia druggist,
who found how to combine, in salve
form, Menthol and Cftmpho with such
essential oils as Eucalyptus, Thyme,
Cubebs, ets., so that when the salve is
applied' to the body heat, ithese ingre
dients are liberated in the form of va
pors. VapoRub is comparathcly new in
iNew York, New England and a few
western states, where it is just now
boing introduced. In other sections of
the country, however, it is the stan
.dard .home remedy in, over a million
homes for all forms of cold trbublos
moro than six million jars were sold
It is particularly recommended for
children's croup or colds, since it is
externally applied and,, therefore, can
be used as freely as desired without
tho slightest harmful effects. Vapo
Rub can be had in three sizes 30e,
