Sees of the State Department of • Health. The order follows: Protection of Dives "In order to as fully as possible protect the lives of our people as well as our essgntial war industries, the department has issued an order closing all theaters, moving picture places, amusement places, saloons, j dance halls and all unnecessary pub! lie gatherings; forbidding unneces{ sary visiting of the sick, and requir■ ing all funerals, no matter what may ' have been the cause of death, to be I private. "For the public good, as well as I for your individual safety, the dej partment calls upon all good cltil zens to help make this order effective. i "Avoid crowds and places frequented by large numbers of peo| pie: stay at home and do not use j the street cars or trains except as your duties or employment may absolutely require. Crowded cars afford unusual facilities for spreading the disease: make them less dangerous for those who must use them in necessary industry. "Your hearty co-operation is necessary In this grave emergency. "Wholesale liquor dealers, bottlers. fraternal organizations and social clubs are requested to discontinue the sale, delivery or serving of liquor for the period during which the hotel bars and saloons are closed. "Compliance with this request is expected on the part of loyal dealers and patriotic organizations. Those who have been affected and in some instances greatly incon- i venienced by the direct order are j everywhere willingly and cheerfully; obeying its requirements," Entire State Co-operates in Quarantine on Epidemic "Wevhave everywhere heard of the ! ; most dheerful compliance anyone, could hope for in carrying out thei order closing places of public amuse-1 ment and saloons to prevent spread •of influenza. Local health boards, have taken hold of the questions in- ! j volving closing of churches and schools in an energetic manner," said Dr. B. F. Royer, commissioner of health to-day. "I intend to issue an appeal to people in charge of automobile service stations to remain open to-morrow to help doctors and those engaged in emergency work because of the epidemic. I shall ask those persons to identify themselves and the service people to look after only such . persons. I trust that they will also do their part in confining automobile service to emc-rgqncy work" continui ed the commissioner. "Reports to-day showed thirtythree deaths at Wishaw,. the mining town in which we established an emergency hospital. To-day centers reporting the disease are Pottsville. Sunbury. Bradford and Reynoldsi ville. Philadelphia seems to have , 40.000 or 50,000 cases, but Pittsburgh is not much affected as yet."

' ! Reports from the Pennsylvania ' i doctors and nurses detailed to aid in ' I Massachusetts show that pneumonia lis less prevalent ainong patients in canvas tents than in hospitals or private houses, said the copimission|er to-day.
