Tl'OS. J.ADAMS,.EDITOR WEDNESDAY, JAN. 12. Greater New York has a popula tion of 3,500,000. A bill has been introduced in Congress giving congressmen a term of four yearB instead of two. Rock Hill is entirely free of smallpox and Winthrop College has resumed its exercises. A ship arrived a few days ago at San Francisco bringing $500,000 in gold from Klondike. Comptroller General Epton says the tax levy for State purposes this year caunot be lower than 5 mills. It is now "Greater New York." This is rather long and we suppose the metropolis will now be refer red to S3 G. N. Y. Gov. Ellerbe has appointed Mr. Boyd Evans, of Marlboro. Mr. Evans is a graduate of Wofford College. There are over 450,000 miles of railway in operation in the world ; seventy-five years ago there was not a mile in operation. Mr. Monteith, of Columbia, says the Columbia Colored Cotton Mill will be in operation by the 15th inst. Eight hundred negroes are to be employed in the experiment The Louisiana sugar-grinding season has closed, all the sugar factories having completed their work. The yield ol sugar will be' from 32,000,000 to 27,000,000 barrels. The young men of Jericho church, near Aurora, 111., engaged in a sparrow hunt and' killed 3.200 birds, getting a bounty of $64 from the state, which was paid to the church. Anderson has voted $50,000 of bonds to the Black Diamond Rail road. The city of Knoxville has subscribed over one million dol lars to the same project. The Greenville Mountaineer says that Editor T. C. Robinson, of the Pickens Journal, will be a candidate for State Superintend ent of Education this year. Brother Robinson will get a big vote in Edgefield as he did in the last campaign. The death of Johnson Hagood will grieve the heart of many an old Confederate who fought with him, and he was always at it while an officer of the Confederacy. Gary, Anderson, Kershaw, Ken nedy and Hagood have passed over the river, leavi?g us only Butler and Hampton. Prof. Walters has discovered that a fearful prehistoric battle once raged in the Indian Territory for the mastery of the Mississippi Valley. Thirty acres are thickly strewn with the bones of those who fought with arrows and stone javelins. Every skull unearthed is either cruehed or pierced with agate pointed arrows. Perhaps one hundred thousand men fell in the hand-tohand conflict. The city of Atlanta, Ga, has adopted the plan of receiving its payment for taxes in instalments. Under this the taxpayer may deposit with the city treasurer one-fourth of his tax assessment in April, one-fourth in July and the remainder in October. The system is said to work well, the city never having received its taxes so promptly as under this arrangement. It is found to be an advantage to the taxpayers, who generally prefer this method, and it is a saving to the city by enabling it to meet its own payments without resorting to the borrowing of money in anticipation of taxes, and the con sequent payment of interest on the same. People who do not know Char leston ways may suppose that a cadet ball is a very high social function. As a matter of fact the cadet balls are attended by tfery respectable people but they are not managed by the most exclusive Ci.-1" If Cadet Peterson had been invited to a ball given by the genuine aristocracy of Charleston and had taken Miss Crane with him, he would not have been treated as he was. Cadet Peterson "and ladies" would not have been invited to an aristocratic ball in Charleston if he was not a gentle man. Being a gentleman, the aristocracy would know that he would bring no improper woman with him. The cream of Charleston society never makes such mistakes. That belongs to the new element. Abbeville Medium. J SMALLPOX AND VACCINA TION. A great many false rumors as to smallpox have been current in the State for some time. But there is no doubt of the fact that this dreaded and loathsome disease ex ists in Greenville, Spartanburg, Oraageburg and Beaufort. Vacci nation is the word, for while this does not afford absolute immunity it goes a long ways in that direc tion : "Various objections have been brought forward against vaccina tion ; the only one to which impor tance is attached by medical men is that a danger existB of introduc ing syphilis into the frame by the use of infected lymph. Dr. Farr deduced from the statistics of the small pox epidemic of 1871, that if 100,000 vaccinated persons be exposed to certain risks of contag ion, 100 will be attacked, ten of which will die; while if 100,000 unvaccinated people be exposed to the same risks, at leastJOO will be attacked, of whom 270 will die. The English Commission of 1873 settled the question in the minds of legislators, as all statistics have since done. The German Vaccination Commission of 1884 came to tho following conclus ions:" "With rare exceptions, one survived attack of small pox con fers immunity against subsequent attacks. Vaccination exerts a similar protection. The duration of the protection varies within wide limits, but is, on the average, ten years. At least two well developed vaccine vesicles are necessary to ensure an efficient protection. Revaccination is necessary ten years after primary vaccination. The vaccination condition of the community increases the relative protection against small pox acquired hythe individual and hence vaccination is beneficial not only individually but generally. Vaccination may have an injurious effect under certain circumstances. In the use of human lymph, the danger of transferring syphillis however slight, cannot be entirely excluded. Any other bad effects are ap parently only due to the con sequences of the wound, e. g., ery sipelas etc. All these dan gers may by precaution bi reduced to such a minimum as to make the benefit of vaccination infinitely outweigh them. Since the introduction of vaccination, no scientifically-proved increase of any particular disease or of the general mortality has occurred. Since the dangers to health and life (vacci-syphilis, etc.) oc casionally connected with the use of human lymph can be avoided by the use of animal lymph, and since vaccination with animal lymph has been recently so perfect ed as almost to equal vaccination with human lymph, the latter is to be gradually superseded by animal lymph.''' Johnson's Chill and Fever ? Tonic Cures Fever In One Day. Compulsory. The action of the city council in passing an ordinance making vaccination compulsory was altogther commendable. Two cases of small pox have developed in Spartanburg and a case has appeared near Beaufort. It is clear that danger of the spread of the disease throughout the State ?B gi ave. Vaccination takes from the disease its dangers. Every town and community in South Carolina should at once arrange for general vaccination. We think it advisable for all of the towns in this section of the State to fol low the examples of Greenville and Spartanburg in making vaccination compulsory at once and the people of country com muities should devise some means for the same end. As to the latter the State board of health should provide some system so that thc danger shall be removed as much as possible from every neighbor hood. In Greenville the health authorities are vigilant and are meeting with gratifying success so far in keeping the disease under control. As yet there is no probable danger of au epidemic and with the vaccination that will be done this week the town will bn safe from the possibility of any large number of cases. Meanwhile, all the cases that have appeared are isolated beyond the city limits. Thousands of people in Greenville have been vacoinated but there remain many who have not been. It :B the duty of every person to promplty report for vaccination. Those who do not think it necessary should b9 vaccinated out of consideration for others.-Geen ville News.
