The State Board of Health's Time
The INnirr of Maaall fox. and the Ad
Tibiltiy f Vaeeiaatlea In
The Argui is in. receipt from the state
board of health of the following which is
timely, and the warning therein con
tained should be generally heeded:
State Boakd of Health. Office of
Thb Secretary. Springfield, July, 1892
3nil'-pox continues to Increase in
frequency throughout the country.
There is every indication that this loath
some disease again threatens Illinois af
ter 10 years of almost complete freedom
from us ravages. Our last small-pox
epidemic resulted in panic and quaran
tine; interrupted travel, traffic and busi
ness; closed schools, churches and courts
caused S 856 cases and 2 978 deaths, and
involved a money toss of nearly $ 7.500
000 without counting the value of hu
man lire destroyed or the permanent dis
ability of many of the survivors.
It is a demonstrated fact that the epi
dem c continued to N increase in exten
and virulence until a system of wnole
sale vaccination and revaccination was
put into effect by the state board of
health It is an equsliy well-demn
strated fact that within 20 days after this
wholesale vaccination was well under
way there was a sudden and marked de
cline in the epidemic which decline con
tinued until the disease died out for watt
of unvacc'nated individuals on whom to
prey. Illinois cannot afford another
smad p ix epidemic still less can Chi
cago, with the world s fair on its bands
There is only one sure method of preven
tion, v nccn&tina properly performed
and duty repeated with re
liable vaccine, under aseptic conditions,
it incontestibly proven to be a safe and
positive protection against small pox.
The Illinois state board of health desires
to securatbis protection for the common
wealth now while there is yet time be
fore the small pox contagion shall have
been still further introduced from neigh
boring communities, or through hordes
of unvaccinated immigrants, or by the
multitudes attracted by the Cluoubian
To this end the board urges upon you,
as a good citizen, the urgent necessity of
securing the vaccinal protection of your
self and of those for whom you are in
otherwise responsible. Not only should
every member of your family be vaccina
ted again if this has not been done suc
cessfully within the last 12 months but
all those in your employ, or over whom
you have any control or authority, should
be required to get vaccinated at once.
This is necessary for the protection of
yourself and family, as well as of your
business interests.- One case of small
pox in your family or in your establish
ment may cost you hundreds or thousands
of dollars. Vaccination which mean"
positive safety in all human probability
will cost each individual only a small
Employ a reputable physician at once
and be protected in season.

Rockford Hustlers yesterday by a score
of 2 to 1 . It was a fine exhibition of
ball, and was the best game of the series
so far. Cunningham and Underwood

up a good game, but six hits being made
off either. Rockford is trying to kick
out on coming here next week, probably
because the pennant has been awarded to

and piay six games in return, which they
in all probability do. The following is
