The Spanish Flu May Get You, Too (By Jesse Daniel Boone.) This old world is 'in the lurch; For we cannot go to church; And the children cannot roam; For they now are kept at home; And they've put a good, strong ban On the moving picture man; Also made the lodges close, While we're in the awful throes Of the pest the doctors call the Spanish Flu. Yes, the preachers now can pray, While they nave their holiday; And the teachers have a rest, Which should give them punch and zest. But there's some folks, you can bet, Who are doing business, yet; Tis the undertaking man, a And the doctor and his clan, With the help of all the druggists, fighting Flu. Many patents sell like cakes, While the sick man coughs and shakes, And attempts to make a cure That is certain and is sure, Without doctor or a nurse, Just to help his little purse, While the wise man telephones To his good friend, Dock Sawbones, For he fears he cannot cope with Spanish Flu. Some have toiled and sweat and hewn With their systems out of tune, Until now, when danger comes, Without bells, or horns, or drums, -They are seized and put to bed, Until countless scores are dead; For in piling up their wealth And neglecting self and health, They are numbered as sad victims of the Flu.

It's a pity and it's sad That a woman, man or lad, With the warnings they've received, Disregarded, disbelieved, All the health boards had to say Of the best and only way To provide against disease That, is lurking in a sneeze From some person who has got this Spanish Flu. Once again, we say to you, That the best thing orie can do Is to get your system right For this fearful, bitter fight. "Preparation" was the word All this country lately heard When the war god seemed to threat; And it is a good word, yet, When we go against this demon, Spanish Flu. John M. Queen, who introduced Mr.

The members of the committee having this matter in hand for our community are all busy men, but they have laid aside their personal uffairs for the time being to aid their country in this crisis.

Every member of the committee, moreover, has subscribed for at least $500 worth of bonds, and some of them still more. If these men are willing to give their time to the cause and lend their money in addition, then the people of Haywood county who have money should back them to the limit There has been plenty of peace talk lately but the war is not yet over. And it won't be over until the victorious allies have driven the barbarous Hun back to Berlin and allowed him to taste some of his own medicine. To prosecute the war successfully our government needs money and more money. It has issued its clarion call and it will be heeded by every red-blooded American patriot.
