The pan who subscribes can claim an hontrable share-of the glory that will be siurs when the powe'tof the Huns shall have been broken, never again to hreaten civilization or any large portion of the people of the world-not Even the people of Germany. THE EPIDEMIC It is hoped that the epidemic which as swept this part of New England for the past six weeka is n-ow on the wane. Lowell has certainly paid a heavy toll to this influenza scourge and the end is not yet in sight. A large number of new cases is reported daily and it is noticed that the disease brings on a very great tendency to pneumonia. It strikes chiefly at the langs and the heart, whereas the origInal grippe of 1850 had more the character of a severe cold that brought on a high fever with a disturbance of the nervous system. There has been some criticism of the a tion of the health authorities on the ground that its preventive meagSaes were not sufficiently sweeping nor enforced with sufficient strictness. some people favored putting a card *m the door of every house in which a case of the influenza was found; but this would be a very extreme step that might perhaps result in the neglect of patients and otherwise do more -ss rr- than good. The board of. health has also been criticised for not putting Its foot down strictly against holding wakes or any assembly of people where a victim of the disease is awaiting buri~al. The people have been cautioned repeatedly against such essemblies and in fact against assemblies of all kinds; but unless compul i t I I I a 4 t 1 1 I o t ax was, reminesa t~elarine player starting alone down the streeL after the minstrel band is six blocks aheed. And Hen need not tear about. the effect of the president's reply oni the allied, and American armies. They seem to skip along toward Berlin at the rate of about 15 or 20 miles a day. As regards that aeroplane trip fron England to France in which the aviator carried an ubright piano with him landing it' safely in France, while the poetically inclined might regard it as a contribution.to the "music of the spheres," most of us would feel that we 'buld rather ride over in t.t particular plane just before or just after the big music box was a passenger, rather than as the piano's "lumper." One of the remarkable things about the conduct of the present war so far as America's share in it is concernedand yet it is not a remarkable thing when you stop to think of it-is, that the struggle seems to progress to a victorious issue in favor of American and allied arms in spite of the fact that certain pickaniffian republican editors are continually telling jithat the men who are directing affairs at Washington are woefully maisnanaging things. President Wilson asked the German chancellor certain questions because he desired to obtain some necessary answers. When a crook comes before a decent man and expresses a wish to adopt a less risky method of obtaining sustenance, thp decent man has to apply the acid test and see how sincere the new born desire is on the part of the crook, In the case of the chancellor it'sis as it he had spoken something but had "mumbled his words." President Wilson believes we are living at a time when mumbUling one's words doesn't go. SEEN AND HEARD Put the stamp of sincerity on your war economles--A Thrift Stamp.
