Tho smallpox situation at this placo now Heems to be well under control. Extensive and effective precautions wero taken hnt week by tho county board of health when at tho suggestion of Dr. J. A. Al- bright of tho btato board ot health 13 , . . . compulsory vaccination was insti- tnted in Camden and in the fifth district. Vaccination proceeded at n lively rate last week, aud by Sun day tho town and a good portion of the district had submitted to vac cination and tho work is still in progress. The negroes hare submitted to it, though not without great pro test. Their ignorance and super stition causes them to resent vac cination, the only scientific method known to the medioal profession to prevent the spread of the disease. Doctor Jordc), chief dispensary physician of St. Louis, says: "The only absolute safeguard against the smallpox is vaccination. Cleanli ness and good personal habits may assist in bringing about a speedy recovery, but they do not protect one from contagion." In our opinion the order that no member of a family where the dis ease exist is permitted to leave the premises should be rigidly enforc ed, and we think the order could be extended to includ those who have been exposed to the disease. It is the opinion of prominent professional medical practitioners that in an infected community no one has u right to go about the streets or enter any public place or travel anywhere wb has not been properly vaccinated They mean by this that the virus should have KEEP IN TOUCH WITH St. Louis and the Worlc of Preparation for the Great World's Fair of 1903.

Very often, a person living far from a physician has smallpox and gets well without medical attention. Of course, cases of this kind are never reported to the health au thorities, and they become fertile sources- of infection in their own neighborhood. It was to meet such a condition that the regulations of the board of health state that "all persons who live within 1 mile of any home in Benton County now infected with smallpox shall be vaccinated." Camden is having trouble with a smallpox epidemic. The sooner the people realize that smallpox can be stamped out by vaccination the better it will be for the coun try. Paris Post-Intelligencer.

The bank is a financial success, aud its rapid progress and ligh commercial standiug is prin cipally due to efficient management The gentlemeu who are so success fully conducting the business af fairs of the bank are reliable and courteous business men in whom the public have all confidence. One of the most regretable inci dents connected with the flurry of smallpox excitement last week was the temporary closing of Benton Seminary. The prompt decision of the faculty and action of the schoo board was wise and proper. There is no reason why the school should not open again in a few days. In the meantime it is the imperative duty of every student to be vacci nated. Every person in Camden must now earnestly work for the success of the school. There is no reason why this little delay should interfere with the previous plans of students or that the school should not make wonderful progress dur ing the present year.

Ckooked Creek, January 21. MUNICIPAL ELECTION. Mr. Editor: At no distant day the citizens of Camden will be called upon to elect a mayor and board of alder men to look after the welfare of all concerned. Comparing the pres ent with the past, it seems to us , the people of the town certainly understand that the affairs of the municipality are in no shape to be placed in the hands of uncompe tent men. Better let well enough alone. It appears to us that the property holders, tax payers, and business men should begin to give the question the serious study and consideration which its importance demands. The present board has acted wisely aud for the best inter ests of the town, and the citizens should see to it that no obstructions are thrown in the way and demand that the present desirable manage ment aud state of affairs of the cor porate government be continued and kept up. Every man entrust ed with the busiuess interests of the corporation should be selected with the view of maintaining the prosperity and future high stand ing of the town. Citizen.
