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

Duty
He was strong and manly,
A lad of determined ways,
i Yet he was frank and truthful,
i In those boyish, buoyant days.
He was carefree and happy
And worked with steady will
Always thoughtful of man and beast,
i When the loose, dark soil he'd till.
Then came the call to urms
A call for humanity's sake,
And he quickly and gladly answered
> Before all the world was awake. v
He fought in those well known battlen
Where so nobly our young men died
And went on with determination
bx a Scottish laddies' aide
I But now the war is over.
Our men will come back to ua
} Better by far than before,
} So pure ami clean and just.
I They will come back to advise,
i Proud of their own sacrifice
