'' 1 mm ' THE RHODES CO. AT THE AUDITORIUM Mr. Hundy announces that h« has secured the D'Eata Rhodes Company of entertainers for Friday and Satur day nights of this week at the school auditorium for the benefit of the library fund of the achool. This company comes highly recom mended and is known as one of the travelling. They carry theii own scenery and effects. whic) weigh over 2500 pounds. The entertainment is purely tot laughing purposes and is brimMi of wholesome amusemen*. .The principal feature will be Elis abeth Rhodes' marionettes, which h one of the most unique shows evei ceived—a minuture performance with acrobats, singers, dancers, clowns and ani mills is shown on a regular stage of their own. There are footlights scenerj and stage mechanism of the same type as the equipment of' a bij theatre, yot everything is in minatuw and all the actors and actresses art hut mechanical figures that perform in a manner true to nature. On the la»t page of this issue will be found an ad depicting the fWures as they wil actually be seen in the show. The dancing skeleton which throws its bony arms and legs in all directions will undoubtedly be big hit of the lU't. Mr. Rhonda, the fam ous vontriloi|uist, la certainly one of the best in his line. The conversation carried on by him appears to have u source in the various mechanical fig , ures on the stage during the act and and is both clever and original. Other feature* of a new and no nature will be seen and a complete change of program will be fjven l. second night. "The D'Ksta Khoads Entertainers playled here lalst night to a full House, giving an entertainment of the highest order. Don't think the entertainment cheap because of the prices."—H. H.

C, INFLUKNfcA WIPES OUT SPIT BOKNE DISEASES OF CHILDREN t Figures batted on reports to the , state board of health show that the ' precautions used against the spread of influenza almost wiped out the ( whooping cough, measles, diptheria, ( anil other spit-borne diseases of chil dren. The state board of health states that luring June, July, August and ! .September preceding the epidemic of influenzu there was jin average of 2.498 cases oif spit-borne diseases of children u month. In October dur ing the height of the influenza epi demic a sudden drop in the other dis eases occurred and from October to 9 February 1 kt, the period in which 1 the greatest number of cases of dis eases of children ususally occur there Was an average of only K4B cases a month. It is also noted that as influ enza subsides the other diseases 'in crease. During February there were _ more than twice as many cases of whooping cough, measles, diptheria, etc., as in November following tlu J height of the influenza epidemic. J This sudden drop in the occurence 1 of' diseases of children was due to H the fact that the fatality of influenzu , and the rapidity of its spread put I into the hearts of the people fear, f which made them exercise personal 'precaution more than ever before, They coughed and sneezed into their handkerchiefs and used their own towels, drinking cups, etc. Chil dren were kept from-school when uii j well and unnecessary exposure was avoided. These precautions not only I returned the development of influen za but prevented many thousands of cuses of other diseases. We must conclude from the flfcovr thut the number of cases of children's diseases can be materially decreased 1 ny proper precautions. Knowing this (art It Incomes the duty of everybody 10-khow {fibre abo3t" The spread of | diseases und to make as great an ef fort to protect the children against diseases all the time as were made j during the epidemic of influenza.' The following diseases were re ported to the county quarantine of ficer during the month of February: None except thirty cases of pneumo nia. WM. E.
