EPIDEMIC LA GRIPPE SWEEPS
OVER THE C0UI1TRY DURING FEBRUARY.
As a rale, tha countriM lfim? in tha north teraperata regions art annually
Tiaitod by A 8C0URGE OF Till OEIP. It usually takea tha form of an
epidemic, though occasionally It assumes a mora sporadic character, but nerer
.thelew claiming thousands of rictims daily.
This disease has taxed the skill and Ingenuity of the physician quite
aa much as any malady that has ever appeared. The fact that there is no
uniformity In the treatment of this disease among physicians generally,
and the further fact that remedies for la grippe change from year to year,
indicates dearly that the TRZATMZHT OP THIS WORLD-WIDE DISEASE
has by no means been reduced to anything like scientific knowledge.
But during all the Ticissltudes of epidemics and variations in medical
' opinions as to its proper treatment, there has been one remedy which has
occupied a prominent place in the minds of the people. This remedy has
been used by a multitude of people and the reports of results have shown
it to be a remedy of undoubted merit
The remedy referred to is the WELL-KEOWS, STANDARD REJtEDY
for chronic catarrh, Feruna.
Just why a catarrh remedy should be so efficacious in the treatment of la
' grippe may not at first appear to the Inquiring mind. The explanation, how
.erer, is an easy one. '
-' Whatever else the medical profession have concluded about la grippe one
thing is certain, that It is to be CLASSED AS A CATARRHAL DISEASE. It
ta been called by many epidemic catarrh. And sometimes endemic catarrh.
Acute catarrh. Catarrhal influenza. Climatic catarrh,
v These various names indicate that la grippe is in reality a catarrhal dis
ease. The ordinary local symptoms ef catarrh are produced by la grippe in a
eomewhat aggravated form. The constitutional effects of the grip are of
- course quite in excess of an ordinary ease of acute catarrh. This perhaps is
-due more to the repeated extension ef la grippe from one part of the system
to another, than to any essential difference between la grippe and catarrh.
- r '. At any rate, the usual remedies for acute catarrh are the ones that are
, most frequently used to combat the grip. It was this fact that first BROUGHT
PERUXA INTO USE AS A REMEDY for la grippe. But whatever may bo
the explanation, it is a matter of history that no remedy has had more exten
' sive and perhaps successful use as a grip remedy than has Feruna.
''(. The evidence of this assertion comes from the people themselves, rather
than the doctors, who are more or lea interested in the special remedies that
are devised from time to time. When THE PEOPLE HAYS DISCOVERED
A REMEDY for la grippe by actual experience, they are very much inclined
. to stick to the old remedy and refuse to try a new one, while doctors, per
. iUaded by flattering advertisements in medical journals, are apt to change
their allegiance from year to year, from one remedy to another.
'. i ') A multitude of people have used Feruna for the grip with such signal suc
cess that whenever this prevalent disease attacks a member of the family
ERTJJTA IS AT OffCE RESORTED TO.
It would seem from the experiences of the people, that when Feruna is
luted the course of the disease is very much shortened, yes, sometimes nearly
-aborted. Still further, the AFTER EFFECTS OF LA GRIFFS, which some-
slimes are more serious than the acute stage, these after effects are greatly
jajtigated, if not entirely prevented.
P"1 We have a great many testimonials in exact line with these statements.
A sample is given below :
,i ,.' Jlr. C 0. Peterson, Lieutenant Engine Co. Ho. 66, 1 44 Barry Ave., Chicago,
Ula., writes: "Lost year I had a severe attack of la grippe which left me very
': weak, so that I was unable to perform my duties.
.. - Several of my friends advised me to build up on Feruna, and I found it
by far the finest tonio and in vigors tor I had ever used. In two weeks I was
strong and well, and if ever I am exposed to unusual hardship incident with
my duties at fires, I take a dose or two of Feruna and find that it keeps me in

that th conference delegate, representing
th United 8tate. Canada and Mexico,
upon having exchanged view and consid
ered the information supplied from their
respective countries, are convinced of the
Importance of the movement for the con
servation of mutual resource on th
continent of North America And believe
that It I of such a nature and of such
general Importance that It should become
world-wide In It scope and therefore ug
gested to the president that all nation
should be Invited to join in conference
on the ubject of world resource and their
Inventory, conservation and wise utilisation.
Anticipating the Interest which would
naturally be aroused In other countries by
the present conference, the president him
self saw the probability that It would be
a precursor of a world conference. By a
not on January S last the principal gov
ernments were Informally sounded to ascer
tain whether they would look with favor
upon an Invitation to send delegates to
such a conference. Th response hav so
far been uniformly favorable.

cerned regarding certain phase of the
natural resources of countries other than

denuding of the- forest and the diminish
ing water supply cf those countries, ws
made known to those who discussed th

tttat at least two foreign power felt keenly
disappointed because they were not invited

ence and they have suggested the advisa
bility of an International ' conference
through correspondence and through their

In the Iron and steel trade that manufac

the Industry was created late today, when
former Judge Gary, chairman of the direc
torate of the United State Steel corpora
tion, made an official announcement that
"the leading manufacturer of Iron and
steel have determined to protect their cus

The prices which may be determined upon

The action of the leading manufacturer
In effecting an open market followed a
series of conference that have been held
here for the last three days by Judge Gary
and the heads of the varloua subsidiaries of
the corporation, together with official of
other steel manufacturing companies.
Judge Gary, in the official statement, say
that th smaller ateel .manufacturing con
cern fpr one cause or another, particularly
the tariff agitation, have become more or
lesa excited and demoralised and have been
selling their product below those prices
generally maintained and thla led to un
reasonable price cutting by certain manu
facturer who, though opposed to a change,
felt the necessity of protecting their cus
tomer. Statement hy Jadge Gary.
Following 1 the statement concerning th
attitude of the leading manufacturers,
which was made public by Judge Gary after
tha meeting of the steelmakers today:
Following the panic of October, 1907, the
Iron and steel Industry Was In jeopardy.
Jobbers and consumers throughout the
country had purchased large stock at
prices prevailing while conditions were fa
vorable and these were undisposed of.
Pending contracts for construction which
Involved large purchases of Iron snd steel
were extensive. Contracts for new furnscee,
mills and equipment and for raw and semi
finished material had been made by large
numbers. An immediate and radical re
duction In prlcea would have meant bank
ruptcy to all tradea. To prevent disaster
and ruin, and at the request of scores who
were Interested, a large percentage of the
leading men connected with thla Industry
met to, advise with each other In regard
to the best Interests of ail concerned and
Including the general public. Various meet
ing followed trom time to time up to the
middle of June, 19b. Accurate re porta of
these meetings were given to and iiubllshed
by the newsapers. Partly a a result
lability of price distinguished from wide
and sudden fluctuations, existed until about
the beginning of lttuv, although no agree
ments were made to maintain prices and
notwithstanding a email percentage of man
