fragedy of the ''Flu."
"Flu" recently attacked the
family of Albert Rodel, a farmer
near Lee's Summit, Mo.- First,
the father became ill. Next
morning Mrs. Rodel was unable
to leave her bed. The six chil-
dren managed to take care of
their parents and do the house-
work that day, then one by one
the second day influenza render-
ed five of them helpless. For two
days. Homer, 9 years old, was
tke only one in the lonely, farm
house to care for the helpless
family. When .he fell ill, the
father became -des^iT ce and
with the help of the boy man-
aged to get into his clothes, har-
ness' the horse ' arid^ go for the
d octor, dying afterwards as; "M
result of the exposure. The doc-
tor found 9-year old Homer lying
on a cot. "I'm alright. £o in and
hefp mamma and the rest, '' the
little chap sai d. The" doc to r -d is -
covered Mrs. Rodel was dead and
and beside her Chester, '^-7 and
Carrol " 5, both unconscious.
Homer survived his father less
than 24 hours. Nurses in charge
of the farm house- now are., try-
ing to save the lives of five ehil-.
dren that are left, all except one
being in a serious condition, ^ .
Probably nothing better illus-
trates that "flu" is infectious,
"is in the air,"- than its„ attack
on this family in a lonely farm
house far from any neighbers.
