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 feared. "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. W.S. OXESUBSCRIPTION TURNED IN. Last week we published a eolumn article on the subject of sending the NEWS to our soldier boys in Fiance. To date only one person has respond ed to the appeal. The movement is Nation wide, and has received the sanction and best wishes of President Wilson, Secretary of War Baker, and Mondav in iaci an tne memDers 01 jrresiuent Wilson's cabinet. Theodore Roosevelt, Mr. Taft,a nd without exception every American who has been approached on the subject. Gen. Pershing is heartily in , favor of the movement, and says nothing Steeps the boys "over there" in such good fighting trim as frequent mes sages from home, and the home pa per is especially. welcomed by them. 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 body knows that no money is made pf! subscriptions. We desire to help in the cause of keeping our boys satisfied. One Dollar will send the NEWS to any boy "over there" for six months. " you have no particular person to .wna the paper to just send in. your ooiiars and we will supply the names JUNIOR DEPARTMENT.

Mrs. Ricks has been experimenting along the line of raising thorough- -bred stock for some time, but? has, . been badly handicapped on account of all her land lying on top and on the north side of the mountain, depriving her of winter pasturage. The land bought from Mr. C6bb lies on the . South side of the mountain, and Mrs. Ricks will immediate proceed - to ' convert in into the much-desired win ter pasture.' This is welcome news, and from present indications there is a grand . awakening taking place in old Polk, and soon we will be very much in evi dence in the cattle raising industry. The U. S.
