Secretary Allon. of the local reels-

day morning stating that the cnll for
ninety men for October 7th to 11th
had been cnncolled. Tho mossnge
came from the office of Governor Ne
ville. While no cause was assigned
for cancelling the call, H is no doubt
duo to tho prevalence of the Spanish
Influenza In practically all the canton
ments in the country. The Lincoln
county mon who were to havo gono
noxt week had been assigned to Camp
Funston, a camp that up to tho pres
ent has been free of tho disease, but
the authorities nre evidently" disposed
to piny safo and will not send more
men to nny of tho camps until all
signs of tho disease have disappear
ed. Just how soon tho disease will
have Its run, cannot of courso be deter
mined. In tho camps on the Atlantic
seaboard the influonzn has boon
alarming and many deaths have oc
curred through pneutno,nln, which fol
lows the influonzn.

work in the interests of tho loan.
Tho third Liberty Loan opened on

of entrance into the war and was
overscrlbed by several million dol
