Onco this diBoaso was tho
scourgo of tho human race. It
depopulated States; it attacked
Kings, princes and peasants; on
land and sea it swept away its
thousands. A century ago by the
dimcovory of Jonnor in Eng
land its powers over human lifo
was cancelled; vaccination is a
suro preventive; it sot froo the hu
man family from this terrible
scourge. There uro sporadic eases
around and about us. A ease may
develop in any town or neigh
borhood. Not cities or towns
alone may be affliotod; the coun
try is not exempt. The writer
woll remembers when tho negroes
of a largo land owner, near
Vaughauville, in this county wore
attacked and there wore a dozen
or so case's. The disease was con
fined to one plantation. Tin?
board of health in this city, au
intelligent body, will look to it; in
telligent physicians in tho county
will look out for tho families
among whom they practice. Let
tho poor, especially, white and
blaok, be protected. Thoro need
bo no alarm or panic. Get vac
cinated. Thoro is no dodging.?
You may encounter it going North,
South, East or West or it may
como to you. Attend to vaccina
tion. An ounco of preventive may
in this caso prove worth millions
