By < Thoroughly Competent Physician.
Influeuza and pneumonia are infectious diseases
which are caused by certain germs. Th? germs are car
ried in the matter which is spit, sneezed, or coughed up
by sick persons, or sometimes by person who, while car
rying the disease germ* in their mouth and throat, show
no sign of illness.
These germs, even if they get into the no6e, mouth,
and throat, are usually unable to break through and at
tack a person who is in good health. ^
If a person is not in good health, he is usually unable
to resist the attack of the germs and they break through
some weak point and attack the body..
In order to be able to resist the attacks ot the germs
which cause influenza, pneumonia, and other diseases,
we must carefully follow these instructions.
Special Advice For Preventing These Diseases.
Avoid contact with matter which is spit, sneezed, oin
coughed up. Persons who feel that they must do so,
should spit, sneeze, or cough into a handkerchief.
Do not use a cup, spoon, knife, folk or dishes which
have been used by others, unless they are first thorough
ly washed in boiling water. This applies to the home as
well as the public restaurant and soda water fountain.
One should avoid placing into the mouth pipes, cigar
Mays which have been used by others.

One should avoid over-eating, especially if, afrer do

selection of food and exercise in the open air, particularly
walking, are helpful in making one's powers of resistance
to disease stronger.

TEXT OF PRESIDENT WILSON'S ?
COMMUNICATION TO GERMAN
' V it'' * A' ? "L ; ~ V '.. " . V,
Washington, Oct.* 8.? The text of the communication
handed to the Charge of Switzerland here follows:
Sir:? I have the honor to acknowledge, on behalf of
the President, your note of October 8th, enclosing the
communication from the German government to the
President and I am instructed by the PresidenLto request
you to make this communication tt> th^ Imperial Ger
man Chancellor; V".
% 'Before making reply t<yfcg.request oHroe Imper
ial German Government, andiBllder that the reply shall
be as-candid and straightforward as the momentous in
terests involved Tequire, the President of the United States
deems it necessary to assure himself of the exact mean- -
ingof the note of the Imperial Chancellor. Does the
Imperial Chancellor mean that the Imperial German^
Government accept the terms Md down by the President
in his address to the Congress of the United States on the -
8lh of January last and in subsequent addresses and that-,
its object in entering into discussions would only be to
agree upon the practical details of their application?

whether the Imperial Chancellor is speaking merely

questions vital from every point of view.
" 'Accept, sir, the renewed assurance of my high
consideration; "ROBERT LANSING."
Washington, Oct. 8.? Presi
dent Wilson has met Germany's
peace note with a move which
will, at one stroke, develop
whether her prOposaP is sincere
or merely a pretention, and. if a
pretention it be, fully, justify for
all time before the world the
prolonging of the war with
force to the utmost, force with
out stint or limit. At the same
lime the President has left wide
open the door to peace.
'Master Stroke', Say Diplomrts.
Among diplomats here the
Piesident's communication is
regarded as one of his master
strokes. It is pointed out that
upon ; cursory examination it
may not show such strong terms
as some may have desired. All
the President's advisers, how
lever, are confident that as a
close consideration reveals its
fu?i import will be apparent that
it is a long step forward if Ger
many really means peace, and
that if she does not it will strip
bare Another hypocrisy of Ger
man diplomacy so completely !
that the reSponsib;!ity for pro-i
? lofrging the war never can ? be;
[charged to the Allies, even By
the Geiman people themselves.
Punch is Tfi|re--T
at first satisfy
a very deep, but direct, method
of developing an answer for all
time to the question, do the Ger
man people want peace.
Unworthy of Trust.
| To appreciate its meaning,
this part of the President's an
swer must be considered in con
nection with a portion of his
speech of September 27 in New
York in which ?e declared.'
