and aoon afterward we hoard that he had

He entered upon htsorDe-ial dutii in
the year of the ineoiorahle smallpox epi
demic, which In Montreal an. I the surround
ing Tillagea raged destructively among the
IrYench Canadians. With alraKt incredible
fanaticism, thousand of three people refused
to be vaccinated. They declaroi that to vac
cinate was to oppoan the Divine will. Ool
had seut la piovtte, and to try to preveut iu
spread wa wi kel. The Canadian bealth
official in attempting to compel them to lie
vaccinated were Hercoly assaulted, their flags
aud placard loru down, and the people rioted
in the street. Under those circumstances it
wa altnont iuiponuUe to check the epiilemic
The Aruericau health officials established a
rigid system of insjiection along the Cana
dian border, and required that all passengers
en railroad trains coming from Canada
should be fumigated. Surgeons with the
necessary appliances were stationed at the
railroad station and on the wood roads and
forest trails loading across the boumlnry to
vaccinate all people arriving from Canada
who hod not already been vaccinated.
Young Dr. Dean was directed to make a
tour of the logging camps in the Moosehead
lake region, and to vaccinate every mann
their crew whose arm did not show a fresh
scar. Among these loggers were many ignor
ant, lawless fellows, some of whom bad the
etupid prejudice against vaccination which
bad led the French people acroxs the border
to resist the efforts of the Canadian doctors.
Their employers and the foremen, however,
were heartily in sympathy with the work of
the surgeon, and did their best to compel
their men to submit to bin lancet.
In one of these camp Dr. Doan encountered
a French Canadian called Pierre Couteau,
who was unusually obstinate aud showed a
vicious temper in hi opposition to the doc
tor's purpose to vaccinate bim. He was a
huge fellow with a black lieard, and a great
red scar on bi forehead.
lt's of no use for you to Imnz off you've
got to have the job done," aid Dixon, the
boss of the enmp.
"N!" aiiw.red Pierre, crisply and dog
gedly. "Don't make any fuss about it! Roll up
the sleeve of your frock!"' ordered Dixon.
Dr. Dean took a stop toward the Canadian.
"No!" growled the fellow, with an ominous
emphasis, at the same timo gra-ipiug hi ax
si if to strike. Bis eyes flashed, the scar on
bis forehead grew redder, and be fairly
bristled with wicked determination.
Dixon was furiously anry, and burst into
a torrent of profane exclamations.
"Leave this camp, and don't rou ever come
back, you brute!" be cried. "We don't want
any murderers here !"
Pierre muttered a few words in his native
patois, flashed a defiant look at the foreman,
dropped his ax with a scornful gesture and
turned to go away.
In a second Dr. Dean sprang upon bim,
tripped bim, threw him to the ground, face
downward, and jumped on his back. Dixon
cam quickly to bis au.tance and lield to
bold the man dow n.
"Throttle 11m aruundrol !" ex.-Uiined the
"No," said the doctor, coolly, -I'm going
to vaccinate bim."
A friendly wood chopper happened to come
along lis helped Dixon to hold down the
struggling, cursing, frothing man, while Dr.
Dean cut away hu frock and shirt, criscroaned
his skm with bis lauo-t and rublmd in the
vacciiM. In less than a muiuto tbeoperation
Trembling with rage, but cowed, the Can
dian jumped up, flung back an angry threat
at the doctor, took hustnnll pnek of clothing,
and, still breathing vengeance, strode away
from the camp.
"I duuao; I guess you made a mi-4ake,"
"Whyr asked the doctor.
"That crittor is liable to kill you. lie's a
bad one I I rather think twould have been
better to let him go without trying to vacci
nate bim. "
"If I'd let him go be d be liable to kill a
hundred nu n instead of one," replied the doc
tor, "lie might he the very ous to spread
the email pox all through this reckon. One
unvacclnated man Is a constant menace. The
only safe way la fur me to oty orders and
see that everybody is vaccinated."
A few wwks later Dr. Dean was ordered
to take hi station at a point where a much
traveled road through the wood crossed the
boundary between Maine and Canada. The
Canadian Pacifio hail gaiis at work In Maine,
and many men were going back and forth
across the border. A log cabin was built for
the doctor's accommodation, a turnpike gate
was put up, aud no man was allowed to pa-
without first having bared his arm.
Tbe cabin wa furnuhed with a stove,
bunks and a few necessary pieces of furni
ture, and wa wU stocked with provisions.
A young man known aa lien was uugaged to
stay with the doctor a his cook and compan
ion, and he also had tbe comriany of a large
mastiff and t ro less sociable friends, a pair

forest, in wh:b were many wild anlmub; tbe
nearest human neighbors were tbe men In a
railroad camp, twenty ni lies away. Tbe
trout which abounded lu a stream that
flowed past the cabin often contributed to tbe
bill of fare of the dotrtor and bis assistant.

with venison for several weeks. Their table
was at no time scantily furnlnbed; they bad

Almost every day men with pack on their
backs came along tbe road from Canada, aud

they grumbled, but for a loug time do one

two young tneo took turns at watching the
gate, and tbe traveler over the turnpike to
Maine, at whatever time he arrived, had to
atop and be examined.
Week after weak passed, and still tbe young
men bad no serious trouble in the perform
ance of their daties.
One forenoon tbe doctor's assistant took
town one of the nQa, and, saying that be
would try to get some partridges for dinner,
started into the woods. Tbe doctor was sit

Dan bad been absent for more than half an
hour, when tbe doctor beard voices, and aoon
saw three men coming up tbe road. He took
his case and went out to the turnpike to meet
"Gentlemen," said be, politely, "I'm a gov

Tba three men chattered with each other iu

no attention to tbem, but listened intently,
and caught nearly all tbey said.

one of bis rlflee oat of tbe but witb bim, and
that Dan wa at band.
He shouted "Danl" loudly, thbaiiiig that

and look) d sharply about them. They heard

"Lais nous passer!" (Let us pass!) tbe

out raisin f bis voice. "Tbe government re
quires m to vaccinate you. It wont take
me five in Inutea."
He spot e pleasantly, as If be had not heard
their thre itening talk as if he did not see a
warning i 1 their eyes.
He saw that be was about to have serions
trouble, b it he made two resolves; one was
to make e .'ery effort to keep those men from
passing th gate in defiance of his orders, and
tbe other vaa to manage, if he could, to get
bis rifle fr im tbe cabin. With that in hand
he felt that lie should be master of the situa
tion. ltwaapMsible for the men to escape bim
by turning from the road into tbe woods, but
they were too surly to take so much trouble

"Perhapt It is Dan," he thought.

Then Dean learned from Pierre tbe secret
of bis uuexiected behavior. He had gone
from the Mocsehead logging camp to Canada.
While be was there, the small pox attacked
his village. Many of his friends died; but
be, thanks t. the doctor's vaccina, escaped
with a mild a tack of varioloid.

Historical Novels No Longer Popular.
Unites an author has a name which will
carry anything he chooses to send out it 1
almost a waste ot time nowaday for a rising
writer to speud his evening on a historical
novel. By that I mean publishers are afraid
to venture upon historical fiction. I saw a
practical illustration of this not long ago. A
New York author of fair reputation conceiv
ed a novel of historical plot aud characters.
He sent the manuscript from one publishing
house to another, until it bad run the whole
gauntlet in New York, Boston and Philadel
phia. In each case it was returned, and every
time the reason was given that "historical
novels are unpopular with the public" Ail
agreed that the literary merit of the story
was unusually good, and deplored the fact
that so well written a novel should have been
historical in its scenes aud personages.
In five of the letters the author was strong
ly urged to submit "a modern novel, with
people and events of today." I could not
but wonder at this seeming inconsistency, for
take the most popular novel issued for years,
"Bon Hur," and the receutly successful
novel, "Tbe Two Chiefs of Dunboy," aud
both are historical. Not ouly that, but tbe
fiction record for the past ten years will
show that of every ten historical novels pub
lished nine were successful. On the other
hand, take the "modern novel," so called, and
but one in about thirty -five, I believe, is tbe
percentage that is successful. 1 am not plead
ing for the historical novel, but doesn't it
scam strange that publishers will reject a
style of fiction which can show more distinct
successes than any oilier of an elevating
character! But the advice is good. Dont
write a historical novel if you wmuM have
easy acceptance of your work. Cor. Phila
