Vaccine Vlnu
What It is and how It is Obtained.
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
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

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
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
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
wire (s not a more positive proof of the
electric current, than are pimples and boils

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
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.

says: “ I have been ill a long time, from

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
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.”

thousands, Ayer’s Sarsaparilla has brought

Several months ago she was suffering from

I had heard of the wonderful cures of Swift’s
Specific, and resolved to try it. I commenced tak
ing it in April. 18*4. My general health was much
improved, yet the cancer which was in my breast
continued to grew slowly but snrely. The bunch
grew and became quite heavy. 1 felt that I must
either have it cut or die. But it commenced di«.
charging quantities of almost black, thick blood.
It continued healing around the edges until Feb
ruary, when it was entirely healed up and well.

Swift s specific Is entirely vegetable, and seems
to cure cancers by forcing out the Imparities from
the blood.
