Originally published in the Star News, October 16, 1918

The city council took steps Monday to close school and churches and all public gatherings until the epidemic of Spanish Influenza, of which there are more than fifty cases, has been stamped out.

Extra police were put on to enforce the order. Loafing around the streets will not be allowed, neither will gathering of children.

Everyone is asked to co-operate with the authorities in an effort to rid the community of this disease which has cause so many deaths in the army camps and in cities to the south of us.
