VOL. XXIV NO. 23
County Health Officer Dr. Earle
Grady Forbids all Manner
of Public Gatherings.
OLD "FLU" IS WITH US.
The Spanish influenza has arrived,
and many cases are reported in var
ious sections of Polk county. So far
have had but about ten cases in
Tryon, with one fatality.
Superintendent 'Cobb informs us
that all but five of the public schools
in Polk county have been dismissed,
and these are so remote that no dan
ger is apprehended that the scourge
will gain a foothold there, but at the
first suspicious case these schools too,
will be closed.
Don't get panicky over the situa
tion. It is all over the United States,
and will do no good to try to run
from it. The physicians have given
lots of good advice in the matter, and
vou will do well to heed it. The in
fluenza itself is short lived, lasting
only three days. The danger arises
from complications that follow,, prin
cipally pneumonia. If you 'should be
attacked with the "flu," don't be in a
hurry about getting out of the house.
Send immediately for your , family
physician and, follow his advice to the
letter, and there is not much to be
"Better be safe than sorry."
THE FAIR POSTPONED.
At the request of the North Caro
lina State Board. of Health and our
town and county health officer, Dr.
Earle Grady, the Polk, County Fair
has been postponed.
Dr. Grady says it will take but a
short time to stamp out the influenza
in Polk county if everybody will do
all. in their power to aid. It is much
easier to guard against the scourge
than it is to fight it after it once gets
into our midst. At present there are
but few cases in the county, and it is
hoped to be able far stop" it where t is.
Just when the Fair will .be held is
problematical, but due notice of the
new date will be given. Don t be
come discouraged, but gO ahead and
get your exhibits in that niucn better
snape. and lets nave a eooo rair
when we do hold it.
OXESUBSCRIPTION TURNED IN.
Last week we published a eolumn
article on the subject of sending the

Steeps the boys "over there" in such
good fighting trim as frequent mes

In almost every county the citizens
are sending in their donations to the
cause. Is Polk count to lag -behind
in this move ? Do we not appreciate
our boys as much as other counties
and localities do?
This is not 'a money-making affair
of the publishers, for almost every
