Dr. Edward Jennerwas the son of
an English clergyuan. born in May.
1 740, nt Berkeley, a village iu Olouces
t r. Tbo roufident .insertion of a yoang
conntry woman that having had "cow
pox" sho was proof against pmallpox,
undo a lasting impression on his mind.
In his twenty-first year he went to
London to finish his medical education
uiiil-T Dr. J ohn Hunter. Returning aft
er two years, he N-gan practice in his
native village of Berkeley. On rt.new
itig his acquaintance with tho dairy
Iieople of the district, the belief of an
exirting antagouinn between cowpox
and smallpox was again brought to his
attention. By degrees he accumulated
sufficient evidence to convince him that
there was something in it. On May 14.
17'Jrt, J inner made his nt vaccination
on a boy of 8 yean, named James
i'hipps. Several weeks afterward the
boy was inoculated with Emallpox mat
ter, find, as Jenner had predicted, no
result followed. Within one year from
tbo first announcement of the discovery
70 of the lending physicians of London
signed a declaration of their absolute
ooufidetico in it.
In spite of this tho discovery was cot
generally accepted without mnch oppo
sition. Jenner, bis system and all who
adopted it were itindo the butts of at
tacks hardly expiated iu extravagance
by any in the history of medicine.
When ho iMTfiated in pressing the con
sideration of vncriniitiontin a medical
society of which h was a mcmix r, ho
was threaUned with cxpuMun. Jenner
and his followers wero denounced as
quacks. The so railed school of ortho
doxy ronsisti'd "f thoo practitioners
who still adhered to inoculation.
A mother complained that since her
daughter hud lieen vaccinated ebe
coughed like a cow and that hair had
grown all over h.-r body. It is also
said that vaccination had Item discon
tinued in onn country district, liecanse
th wo who had Into inoculated with
vaccine virus "bellowed like bnlls."
In IHOfj tho practice was introdncml
into this country, and six years after it
was firxt made public tho knowledge
and practice of this operation had
pmnd over tho entire world. In Russia
tbocmprean gave tho name of "Vacci
noff." to the first child vaccinated and
niadu its education a public charge.
Many honors wero conferred on Jenner
by foreign court. . The anniversary
of bis birth and that of his first vacci
nation were for many years celebrated
in Germany os feast days. In 1802 par
liament voted him $00,000, and five
years later 100.000 more. He died of
ajKipb-xy in 1823, and his remains were
laid in the pnrish chnrch of Berkeley.

THE AVERAGE MAN.
11 else. Weight, Mrcagth and Appear,
aacw From an Expert Calralntlesv.
"The average man" is a phrase fre
quently employed, but the conception of
wiiich it is the symbol is apt to be ex
trsaiely shadowy. It hu remained for
Dr. Sargent of Cambridge to endow the
conception with concrete form. With
extraordinary inunstry hhas applied
himself to measuring cheats and necks
and hips by the thousands, and biceps
and calves by the tens of thousands. lie
has calculated the Ftrength, expressed
in foot ponniTs, of nnanmbcred forearms
end backs. Tho results of bis labors con
sist of two nude figures modeled in clay.
The first fiTr.ro is the average, or
composite, of moro than .1,000 Harvard
men at tho age of SI. This type fs 3 feet
8 inches in height. He weighs ICS
ponmls. tie has a litag capacity of 44
inches. Ilia breadth of shoulders is 17
inches. Ilis girth of natural chest is3:l.8
inches; of inliuted chest ofi.3. His stretch
of arms is 70.03 incnes, which is 2.2
inches greater than .his height. Thus
one idol after another is smashed with
the hammer of cold fact, for tho rigid
law of ancient art was that the stretch
of arms should always exactly equal the
height. Tho girth of the tyye'a head is
22.8 inches, of his hips 33.1 inches. Tho
strength of his forearm is 1 10 pounds, and
of his back GOP. pounds. Standing square
ly, rlran limbed, strong necked, ho looks
rather like a runner than a rower, but
there is nothing fcorlid, nothing warped,
nothing to indicate the deterioration of
a civilization of too many wheels, the
stunting anil abnormal, one sided devel
opment duo to factory or city life.
In cousiilering the other figure reluc
tant gallantry wat give place to verac
ity, and it mast be admitted that the
man is the finer figure of the two. The
face of the averc.w college girl, like that
of the other figure, is a "composite" one,
and the best th&t can be said of it is that
it is dcpressingly solemn ia expression.
The tyjie is 5 feet 5 inches tall. She
weighs 113 rounds. Her breadth of
shoulder is 1 7 inches. The girth of bt-r
natural chest ii CO.o indies. She can ex
Jand that about two inches. Her girth
of hijw is 83.4 inches. Her girth of head is
21. o inches. Her stretch of arms is 03.3
inches. As the college girl is too fieusiblo
to constrict her w:iit to any considerablo
d-gree, so she in wise enough to give her
feet plenty of freedom.
The type s foot is inches long. Her
waist is 24 icclu in cirenmf ereuce. Her
legs are not well developed. Her girth
of calf is only i:i inches. In truth the
fi;rnrc has more fragility Inan that of her
counterpart, without a corresiondiiig
gam in grace.
It is when he finishes the results of
his observations a.s to temperament, how
ever, that Dr. Sargent approaches most
closely to Uangerons ground, for ho da-
clares that the typical college girl stu
dent is distinctly nervo-bilious. This
seems like a maliciously devised scheme
on th.- part of thetioctor to forestall crit
icism from the girls.
Tho shrewd, scier.tiilc expert fcaD
dotib'.lc.s conceived the notion of put
ting their very critu.-i.su-s in evidence to
prove his sweeping assertion. He will
Bcarcely snceeed,-however, in i ropitiat
ing the ladies by the deprecatory re
mark that Lis lay figure is not that of cn
$0 or 90 it cent girl; that it represents
merely Z.0 wt cent of their good points,
and is halfway from the best to the
won t. Philadelphia Record.
rrotretlng Vesvtablrs In Winter.
It does tuoi seem to be generally known
that liht in Jio winter time is the chief
agent in the dectrnction of vegetables
otherwise hardy, and especially light

posed to tha lirjht rots reauilr, bat will
