CONSIDERABLE STIR was
created here last Friday when
the doctors announced that there
were three well developed cases of
smallpox in town. Since that time
there has been one death, Mrs.Eugene
Hall, who died Suuday morning after
giving birth prematurely a few day,
before to a child which isstlll alive. A
board of health was quickly organized
composed of Drs. Hill, Clinkcalcs and
Fortner. The infected places were
flagged and guarded so as to prevent
any possibility of the disease spread
ing. The doctors have been kept busy
day and night vaccinating the people
and at the present writing nearly the
entire population have been inocu
lated. There is little or no probabil
ity that the disease will spread under
the present rigid regulations. With
proper care and observance of the rules
of the health ofllccrs and of the city
authorities it will be stamped out at
once. There are a few cases in the
country at Pat Shanahan's place four
miles west of town. The first case out
there hits recovered, and there are
four other cases at the same house a
man, his wife and child, and a hired
man; but the disease is not hard to
control in the country, there being no
occasion to communicate to any great
extent with others. It is not a pleas
ant duty to record the presence of this
malady in our midst, but regarding it
as a duty the whole truth is told. The
Ciiieftaix has the confidence of the
country and lias no doubt in the world
but tnis publication will do more to
alloy fear and misapprehension do
the town more good in a business and
in every other way than all thegloss-
ing-over stories of an"cruptive fever,"
etc, generally indulged in at such
times, that could be written.
It is a mistake, as reported at Tah
lequah and elsewhere, that no one is
allowed to get on or oil the trains at
Vinita, and that no mail is forwarded
from this point. Passengers go and
come at their will, a few local but no
terminal or important points quaran
tining against u. As a precaution
against the possibility of the pesti
lence spreading by reason of outgoing
mail, a fumigating box has been con
stricted at the postoulce and all mall
is thoroughly cleansed before being
An idea of the degree of alarm
which has been aroused at surround
ing towns may be gleaned from setcr
al incidents related. The jurors who
had been attending court here and
who lived at and near Afton were de
nied the privilege of getting off the
cars at that town, but the train
was stopped a short distance outride.
Miss Leila Cook and sister, Juliet, de
cided Sunday to pay a month's visit

Pacific to Edna likewise failed, and

When they got this far they proceeded to
