; SMALL-POX, AGAIN.
VACCINATION OBDKH BT. THB STATE BOARD
OfBsUTLH. . '
The state board of health, acting undor
authority conferred upon it by th law of
1677, has Issued an order to the effect that
on and, after' January 1st, 1883, no pupil
shall ba admitted to any public school in
the state ' without presenting . satisfactory
evldonca of fluoejarol vaccination. The
board says that the order is Issued In the '
belief that it is entirely feasible to make
small-pox of "as little effect as any extinct
epidemic of the middle ages;" and that the .
first, and absolutory necefsary step to this
end is, to secure the general vaccination of
children, so as to prevent the accumulation
of unprotected people as .these grow up.
During tne past nttecn -years, 1807 to 1881,
both inclusive, out of an aggregate of 227,-
119 individual scholars attend ine the pub
lic schools of Chicago, there have appeared
only 15 cases of small-pox and variloid.
This immunity, it is claimed, is the direct
result of a requirement of tho health depart
ment of that city, the enforcement of which
was begun in 1807, and by which, evidence
of successful vaccination is made a condi
tion precedent to admission to any Chicago
public school. , ". ' .
Bmall-pox is now widespread through
all the northern states from the Atlantic to
ttie Pacific, and is causing profound anxiety
at the manifestations of its epidomic ten
dency. To some extent this is due to the
recent enormous immigration; but it is un
doubtedly true that the noglcct of vaccina
tion among our own people has also much
to do with the present alarming disposition
to a spread of the disease. This emergency,
therefore, seems to offer a favorable op
portunity for inaugurating in the state at
large a measure which has proved so signal
ly successful in its Chief city.1
A well-founded "prejudico" in the pub- .
lio. mind, has been wised by the long-hu- ,.
manized virus. ' Such virus is open to two .
objections: - First, and most important, the
deterioration m vigor caused by the trans
mission of virus through numerous human
beings -hence,' imperfect protection and
frequent esses of small-pox among those
so vaccinated; ' and, second, - the danger
(real or supposou) of conveying other dis
ease by such virus. Both these objections
are fully met by the nae of bovine virus
from approved propagators.
Physicians are furuishod by the board
with a full set of instructions for making
out the scholar's' vaccination certificate,
and school authorities are also fully in
structed as to their duties in the enforce
ment of the order. It is suggested that
much of the success of this effort to pro .
tact the children from a loathsome pestK
lence, will depend upon the wisdom, firm
ness and intelligent action of . the school
authorities. Timely notification and ex
planation will save much unnecessary fric
tion, and exact information and instruc
tion will soon dispel ignorant ' opposition.
It only needs that the public bo rightly in
formed to secure cheerful co-operation.
All inquiries will be promptly answered
from the office of the state board of health,
and every available facility Will be afford
ed for meeting emergencies. It is not de
feired, Except at a last resort, to arbitrarily
enforce this measure; at the same time it
should be clearly understood that the re
quirements will be enforced.
Those whose duty it is to see that the
order of tha- aiatsy board is . carried out in
this city should give especial attention to
the colored population in the city; be
cause, as a rule, the colored people have a
strong superstitious fear of vaccination
and will not submit themselves to it unless
compelled to. ' For this reason this terrible
disease usually attacks the' colored people
with : fearful' fatality when ; It once breaks
out .among ? them. ' IfJaird with' her large
colored population needs to be - extraordi
narily careful. -V; .'
' Cause and Effect.
The main cause of nervousness is indices-
tion, and tbatia caused by .weakness of the
stomach.1 " No one can have' sotittd nerves
and good health without "using HOP BIT
TERS to Strengthen 'the fetomach, purify,
the blood and keep the liveti and kidneys 'x
active to carry off all the poisonous and ,
waste matter of the system. See other
.Esquimaux Dogs. v
V Esquimaux dog are complained of
by Capt Narcs, the English explorer ot
the Arutio regions, as troublesome bo
cauiio tlioir dosiro for superiority leads
them to quarrel. He says: . .
' 'Being in strange; quarters, ' the doga
are baying in concert, the distracting
noise froquontly diversified by a sharp
howl, as a sailor, in forcing hte wJ
through thoir midat, uses iho toe ot his
boot ."" :' '
"The packs collected from throe or
four diflbrent sottiameuts are strangers
to each other. Tho king dog of each
team is necessarily tied up, hi, touburdl.
nates clustering around and crouching
'In hoir anxious endeavors to pro
tect their followers, and if possible to
maintain and extend their rights, theso
king dogs are straining thoir very ut
most at tlie ropes, snarling and lifting
their upper lips, evidontly longing for ;
tho time when they may tight it out and
docido who is to be ruler over all.
"Byshoer fighting each has worked
his way to tho position - ho now holds,
tho most determined animal gaining tho v
day.' . - . -
"A long sorios of contests will be un
dertaken : before this supreme head is
acknowledged.",-'?'. ' ,
; His Answer,
There are sumo smart editors in Illi
nois.' Ono of them, F. M. Taylor, for- -ruorly
of the Bollovillo Advocate, has
just been appointed to a clerkship la -tho
Pension Department at Washing
ton, after the usual examination. Ona
ot tho questions akod him by the com-, :
mlttoe ' was: "What' la .the distance ,
from the earth to Ahe sun?" This '
stumped" Taylor, but he was too sharp ; ;
to say he didu know, so he wrote iu :
reply: "l am unable to state accurate ,
y, but don't believe the sun is near
enough to interfere with a proper per- .
formance of' my duties ; if I get tho .'
clerkship. And he got it Fontm
