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. ? ? * ?' -V , J-- ; J? s/\>. : -i 1 sroorn _ places where nam* Be freety ventilated.

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?

He deems the answer to theses questions vital from every point of view. " 'Accept, sir, the renewed assurance of my high consideration; "ROBERT LANSING." ,-vr .. 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 .. I vim at first satisfy a !C 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.' "We are bll agreed that there can peace ob tained by any* kind of bar ain or compromise with governments of the Cen tral Empires, because we have dealt with them al ready and have seen them deal wite othef governments that were parties to this strug- . gle, at Gretf-Litovsk and Buchrest.
