Everybody has heard of vaccine points and vaccine virus, bat everybody has not seen the same or been accorded the privi lege of looking upon the process of mak ing either one or the other. At the pres ent lime, when the dread epidemic ot small-pox is raging so fiercely near our borders and threatening to introduce itself among us, it is quite natural that some in terest''should centre in the methods of warding off the disease on the part of the people of New England. To the end of getting some information in regard to the manner of producing the tar-famed anti dote to the terrible disease, a Boston Trav eller reporter called upon Dr. W. C. Cut lerof the New England Vaccine Company, at Chelsea, and invited him to give a few facts concerning the matter, and he gave the following interesting history : To begin at the beginning. I will state that true animal vaccine was introduced to this country by Dr. Henry Martin ot Bos ton Highlands, in the year 1870. The seed which he obtained for the introduction of the process was from a spontaneous case of cowpox on the udder of a milk cow in Beaugeney, France. Previous to that time there had been no well attested case of spontaneous cowpox discovered in this or the old country, and never had the true cowpox been transmitted from ani mal to animal since the days of Jenner, although vaccination had been performed bv Dr Ephraim Cutter of Woburn, during the war. and virus was furnished to the Federal army by him. This was called retro-vaccine virus, and was taxen irorn the human arm and carried back into the I animal. Previous to this time, and as far back as 1843, attempts were made to inoc ulate heifers with small pox derived di rectly from human cases, anil a notable instance of this kind occurred during the practice of one Dr. Martin of Attleboro, Mass., who obtained virus in this manner, and from these animals vaccinated the townspeople. Unfortunately this resulted in true small pox in every case where the vaccin ation had been performed, many of the victims dying, and thereby giving rise to a general epidemic in that part of the country. Records of this case may be found in the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal of 1843, and the facts are not gen erally known even to physicians today. The author of all this trouble became de mented through remorse at what he had done, and died in the West, insane, a few years later. Apart Irom this misadventure, the lymph used in this country had been Passed from Arm to Arm. through a long succession of transmissions for about 70 years, and thereby in the minds ol the leading men of the profes sion. had become determined in its char acteristic developments. Owing to the sudden calls for large quantities of vac cine virus during epidemics in this coun try. it was not infrequent that the supply ol the material ran short. Since Dr. Martin introduced the true vaccine, several others have also engaged in the specialty, and during the following year Drs. Waterman and Garceau of Bos ton. Dr Foster of New York, mysell and others, established stables for the propa gation of the virus. Various others have also entered the field sj^lce then. Now it is not unusual during small pox epidemics in large cities, when house to house vac cination is in operation, that such a city may use from 10,000 to 20.000 of the vac cine “points,” which I will show you, per dav, including those uset r the Board of Health and private physicians. I mention this I act because Boston, Baltimore, Washington and Chicago vaccinated at this rate for several days. It might be needless to say that when a city applies from 10.000 to 20.000 of these a day, as a means of stamping out the small pox. that end is accomplished in from Oto 20 days. This is what experience has so far gone to show. Such might easily have been the case in Montreal, had there been no opposition to the work of the physicians. Instead ol vaccinating thoroughly front house to house, and doing the work in proper torm, the Montreal Board of Health have been vaccinating at the rate of 500 per day, when thev should have vaccinated 5000. A very unlortunate circumstance occurred in Montreal when the first cases were imported from Chicago. Lymph of a very poor quality was used, which verv early in the epidemic gave rise to a most serious objection to vaccination among the classes. Upon the introduction of a better quality this was overcome, so far as the English-speaking people were concerned The Catholic clergy seem to have been the chief obstacle to the work of the Board of Health among the Krench-Canadian in habitants of Montreal. The bishop issued a manifesto to his clergymen to advice vaccination, which they did, but supple mented the advice with the assertion that the smallpox had come upon the people as a punishment for their sins, and wheth er they were vaccinated or not, they would have the disease just the same. They lurther comforted their flocks with the assurance that the smallpox had been sent among them by an all-wise Provi dence. to thwart the designs of whom was nothing short of blasphemy. An Amusing Incident concerning the ant I-Vaccination Society: of Montreal, and the denouement ot which a lew days ago proved a great help to the Board of Health, might be stated in this connection. It seems that the editor of the anti-vaccination journal of Montreal,- having occasion to leave that city by rail, was quarantined for inspec tion ; not wishing to be delayed, he sub mitted after some objection to be exam ined, when it was discovered that he had two finely developed pustules of vaccina tion on his arm, about seven days old! This, as may be imagined, took much of the force away from his remarks in sup port of anti-vaccination, and has in no small degree aided in the work of getting the disease under control. So far as the traffic in vaccine is con cerned probabiy not one-sixth or one seventh of that produced goes into the Provinces at all. but to the different bor der States, such as Maine, Vermont. New Hampshire and New York, and is there used merely as a means of conservatism. Neither is the great bulk of it going into infected districts. The boards of health of our large cities are giving free vaccina lion, and the daily press is actively agita ting the matter, so that there is really a general protection going on in all the §tates, almost as though they were in a state of general epidemic. 1 suppose that the amount of virus produced per day by the various combined propagators of the of the United States might aggregate from 20,000 to 30,000 ‘‘points” per “day. Of this the largest proportion is probably produced in New England. Vaccination In its earliest days having been in a great measure promulgated in the Hub. Boston virus has come to have the best reputation and the city is looked upon as a sort of headquarters for bovine vaccine virus. In the matter of its immediate produc tion, the most important object! s to obtain nice cattle. It ns^j?jr® an animal to be in a very good condition as regards health, as an impoverished and sickly animal is very difficult to get good lymph from. We must avoid all skin diseases, and next select an animal with smooth, glossy hair, and under five years old, it possible. I he natural habitat of cowpox is upon the milk heifer, however, and not the calf, although both are used. It becomes necessary that the physician producing vaccine virus for the profession should have his operating stables immed iatelv under his control and observation, forthis is a business that requires unflag- , oin<r attention. It is imperatively necessary also’ that there should be in connection with his operating stables a farm in which the animals, prior to the propagating pro cess should be well cared for. The Animals Never Suffer from the effects of vaccination, the deaths bejn<r about one in 3000, and Ihose occur ring'gene rally troru strangulation. There are nianv times when these animals com mand a premium in the market. Having selected a perfectly healthy beast, she is vaccinated over the gluteii muscles on the posterior portion ot the hips. This part is selected for the reason that there is less liability for its coming mto contact wffh any foreign substance. During the inocu lation process, which lasts seven days, the animal is kept in a warm stable, pro perly bedded and cared for, fed upon English hay and clean shorts, and on the seventh day the crust of pustule is re moved and is surface carefully cleaned any debris of the stable or the pustule, when there immediately begins to exude from the cellular surface lymph slightly mixed with blood. This first lymph is allowed to run to waste until it becomes clear and limpid, like water in color. It is then gathered upon small ivory “points” made lancet shape for the double purpose of securing the lymph and making the incision in the arm of the person vaccinated. This exu dation ot lymph continues spontaneously for trom one halt to three quarters of an hour. It is then exhausted, and the same process is continued upon another pustule, for there are several on the same animal, until all have been treated. This finishes our work upon that animal, she being then exhausted of the lymph, and she is pro tected against any further vaccination either by accident or intent. For the ope ration the yearling is led alongside of an adjustable table and strapped to it, after wliich the table and calf are both raised to a horizontal position and then are sub jected to the operation. A very success ful operation upon a healthy animal will yield a varying amount of lymph, from 1000 to 2000 points. The physician is always forced to be al ways ready for emergencies, tor his pro duct must be fresh and at all times in quantity sufficient to supply the demand. This is somewhat difficult when so much virus must be thrown away, forthe reason that we must wait seven days from the time the animal is vaccinated to the time she matures. Larger animals are operated upon through a different method. Being too large for a table, they are led into a sort stanchion which braces them on all sides, and the operation is performed upon them and the lymph gathered while in a standing position. The normal tempera ture of the animal in health is 100 1-2 de grees, and at the height ot the disease it Rises One or Two Decrees, not, hewever, occasioning any discomfort to the animal, or preventing it from eat ing and drinking. It is often the case in epidemic times that the physician must vaccinate from three to five animals a day in order to supply the demand. After the “point” is charged from the animal it is placed in a sort of ventilating rack to dry, as heat renders it inert. The “points” are then placed for ordinary use in small round metal boxes packed with wool, and are shipped to the physicians, always, as a rule, going througn the mails. A day's mail may represent every State in the Union, and often does. In order that you may better understand the matter I will show you the process in practical operation, said the doctor, as he conducted the interviewer to the operating stables near by. Entering what one might take to be an ordinary dwelling-house or the headquarters of some light mercantile establishment, an interesting scene was re revealed. Standing in two rows were to be seen a number of fine-looking cattle held in position by the stanchios before described. Some of them were lazily chewing hay. and all appeared sleek and glossy and contented. The lymph pestules on differ ent ones were in all stages of develop ment, trom one to seven days, and some of them had not been treated to the vac cination process. There was one which had served its purpose and was of no further use as a producer of vaccine virus, and there were two others which had arrived at the re quired stage of development and were be ing operated upon by the employes. The little ivory slivers, looking for all the world like miniature paper-cutters, were applied to the gelatinous matter of the pustule so that both sides ot the pointed end were covered. They were then placed obliquely upon a large, round wooden disc with a series of grooved circles in it to admit the free passage of air. They were then ready for the drying rack, and presented an appearance very suggestive of the rapidly revolving “pin-wheel” in which the small bov delights on the night of the glorious fourth. Everything was as neat as a dairy, and the presence ot ani mals would hardly be suspected were they not to l>e seen. Those cattle, said the doctor, are kept upon our large farm at Revere, and brought in as occasion requires. The to. tal numlier which we have vaccinated since 1871 is now 3400. Proceeding to the upper story the stock room was first inspected. Here was found Thf. Drti.no-rack. in which the lymph on the “points” was rapidly assuming the condition of dried mucilage, and there were also some of the old-fashioned quill “points” ready for shipment. These quills, said Dr. Cutler, have now almost become obsolete, although we sometimes get an order for them. The ivory ones have almost entirely supersed ed them. Here are some of the latter, which have received a third coating of vi rus. They are going to the Sandwich Islands, and of course we want them to retain their full power when they arrive there We have sent them to Havti, and even as far as China, and their power has not deteriorated. We always give a third coating in these instances, for the ordinary “point” retains its vitality onlv about three weeks. In a large, well-lighted room adjoining, a torce of employes were busily at work seated in front of a long table. Here the prepared points were taken in hand by one person and sorted and counted into tens. The next one carefully removed with a knife all foreign substances that might adhere to the lymph, while the next care fully re-inspected and re-counted them| and then sent to the packer. The latter Important facts: That the greatest evils have often had their rise from causes which were deemed, originally, of too little importance to occasion solicitude; and that fatal re sults proceed from the neglect of trivial ailments. Philip G. Raymond, Duluth, Minn., writes: “ Ayer's Sarsaparilla cured me of Kidney Complaint, from which I had suffered for years.” The transmission of a message over a Telegraph wire (s not a more positive proof of the electric current, than are pimples and boils of the contamination of the blood by im pure matter. Albert H. Stoddard. 59 Rock st., Lowell, Mass., says: “For years my blood has been in a bad condition. The circulation was so feeble that X suffered greatly from numbness of the feet and legs; l was also afflicted with boils. After taking three bottles of Ayer's Sarsaparilla my blood circulates freely, and I have no boils or numbness.” Like an Electric shock, the pains of Rheumatism dart through the body. Rheumatism is a blood disease, and needs an alterative treatment. Charles Foster, 3T0 Atlantic ave., Boston, Mass., says: “ Two years ago I was pros trated by Rheumatism. I tried a variety of remedies, with little benefit, until I began using Ayer’s Sarsaparilla. This helped me, and, at the end of the fifth bottle, I was entirely cured.” Miss A. Atwood. 143 I st., South Boston, Mass., says: “ I have been ill a long time, from poverty of the blood and abscesses. Discoveries are made by scientists, from time to time, which astonish the world, but there has been no discovery, in science or medicine, more impoi tant than that of Ayer’s Com* pound Extract of Sarsaparilla, which has restored health and strength to thousands. Beiy. F. Tucker, Pensacola, Fla., writes: « Ayer’s Sarsaparilla cured me of Liver and Bilious troubles, when everything else failed.” The usefulness of the Telephone is enhanced by the fact that it can be used to order Ayer's Sarsaparilla from your druggist. Dr. John Iloffman, Morrisania, X. Y., writes: ‘‘In all diseases arising from an impure ami vitiated condition of the blood, there is no relief so prompt and sure as that afforded by Ayer's Sarsapa rilla.” Dr. A. B. Iloberson, Chapel Hill, X. C., writes: " I wish to express my appreciation of AVer's Sassaparilla. I have used it in my practice, in Scrofulous cases, with excellent results.” Lighting up the faces, and relieving the sufferings of thousands, Ayer’s Sarsaparilla has brought happiness to the homes of rich and poor alike. Mrs. Joseph Perreault, Little Can ada, Harris Block, Lowell, Mass., is a widow; the only support of three children. Several months ago she was suffering from general debility, and was compelled to give up work. Medical attendance failed to do any good, but, by the use of a bottle of Ayer's Sarsaparilla, she has been enabled to resume her work, and is gaining strength daily. Use Ayer's Sar Ayer s Sar sapanlla. saparitla has had the effect of toning me up. Under its use I am fast gaining color, appetite, and strength.’’ No other preparation is so universally esteemed for its purifying and invigor ating qualities. Prepared by Dr. J. C.
