Flu season

The weather has been remarkably fine and pleasant during nearly the whole of the present month, until yesterday morning, when it suddenly turned cold, and has since been almost as boisterous and unpleasant as at any time during the winter. Such a sudden change in the weather will, we fear, add to the great number of severe colds with which almost every section of the country is afflicted.
