Upon tho str.-ngth of this exneriment tho opera tion was r"c iYd v.-ith royal favor, the Princess .f Yal s leaving two of her danghtcrs itiiecttd" aftir tho "Turk ish Hutu. Hi." Tbu t -Sieittiry of tho oierr.tion in mit igating tho severity of Fiualljtox was great, the taortality averaging but throe in l.COfj. But there was one drawback which was considered fatal. However light the ingrafuvT disease might le, it was etiil arnalliiox, and tha more it was conveyed in this way the more were cen ters of infection multiplied from which th'ise not protected wero liablo to coa-tr.-iet the disease in iu most virulent forat. Dr. Edward Jennerwas the son of an English clergyuan. born in May. 1 740, nt Berkeley, a village iu Olouces t r. Tbo roufident .insertion of a yoang conntry woman that having had "cow pox" sho was proof against pmallpox, undo a lasting impression on his mind. In his twenty-first year he went to London to finish his medical education uiiil-T Dr. J ohn Hunter. Returning aft er two years, he N-gan practice in his native village of Berkeley. On rt.new itig his acquaintance with tho dairy Iieople of the district, the belief of an exirting antagouinn between cowpox and smallpox was again brought to his attention. By degrees he accumulated sufficient evidence to convince him that there was something in it. On May 14. 17'Jrt, J inner made his nt vaccination on a boy of 8 yean, named James i'hipps. Several weeks afterward the boy was inoculated with Emallpox mat ter, find, as Jenner had predicted, no result followed. Within one year from tbo first announcement of the discovery 70 of the lending physicians of London signed a declaration of their absolute ooufidetico in it. In spite of this tho discovery was cot generally accepted without mnch oppo sition. Jenner, bis system and all who adopted it were itindo the butts of at tacks hardly expiated iu extravagance by any in the history of medicine. When ho iMTfiated in pressing the con sideration of vncriniitiontin a medical society of which h was a mcmix r, ho was threaUned with cxpuMun. Jenner and his followers wero denounced as quacks. The so railed school of ortho doxy ronsisti'd "f thoo practitioners who still adhered to inoculation. A mother complained that since her daughter hud lieen vaccinated ebe coughed like a cow and that hair had grown all over h.-r body. It is also said that vaccination had Item discon tinued in onn country district, liecanse th wo who had Into inoculated with vaccine virus "bellowed like bnlls." In IHOfj tho practice was introdncml into this country, and six years after it was firxt made public tho knowledge and practice of this operation had pmnd over tho entire world. In Russia tbocmprean gave tho name of "Vacci noff." to the first child vaccinated and niadu its education a public charge. Many honors wero conferred on Jenner by foreign court. . The anniversary of bis birth and that of his first vacci nation were for many years celebrated in Germany os feast days. In 1802 par liament voted him $00,000, and five years later 100.000 more. He died of ajKipb-xy in 1823, and his remains were laid in the pnrish chnrch of Berkeley. The following epitaph is inscribed on his tomb: Within this tomb hath found a resting place.

Nowadays tha old fashioned method of arm to arm vaccination is no longer praciiceo, as mere ia uiways more or leas danger of transmitting disease from one to another. Tho virus, as generally ttaed now, is obtained from youug heifers. (Jnill slips are charged with iLeach slip receiving enough mat ter for one inocnlatian. "Points' of ivory are alao used for holding the virus. The lancet ia still used where one vaccination is to bo performed.

Weight, Mrcagth and Appear, aacw From an Expert Calralntlesv. "The average man" is a phrase fre quently employed, but the conception of wiiich it is the symbol is apt to be ex trsaiely shadowy. It hu remained for Dr. Sargent of Cambridge to endow the conception with concrete form. With extraordinary inunstry hhas applied himself to measuring cheats and necks and hips by the thousands, and biceps and calves by the tens of thousands. lie has calculated the Ftrength, expressed in foot ponniTs, of nnanmbcred forearms end backs. Tho results of bis labors con sist of two nude figures modeled in clay. The first fiTr.ro is the average, or composite, of moro than .1,000 Harvard men at tho age of SI. This type fs 3 feet 8 inches in height. He weighs ICS ponmls. tie has a litag capacity of 44 inches. Ilia breadth of shoulders is 17 inches. Ilis girth of natural chest is3:l.8 inches; of inliuted chest ofi.3. His stretch of arms is 70.03 incnes, which is 2.2 inches greater than .his height. Thus one idol after another is smashed with the hammer of cold fact, for tho rigid law of ancient art was that the stretch of arms should always exactly equal the height. Tho girth of the tyye'a head is 22.8 inches, of his hips 33.1 inches. Tho strength of his forearm is 1 10 pounds, and of his back GOP. pounds. Standing square ly, rlran limbed, strong necked, ho looks rather like a runner than a rower, but there is nothing fcorlid, nothing warped, nothing to indicate the deterioration of a civilization of too many wheels, the stunting anil abnormal, one sided devel opment duo to factory or city life. In cousiilering the other figure reluc tant gallantry wat give place to verac ity, and it mast be admitted that the man is the finer figure of the two. The face of the averc.w college girl, like that of the other figure, is a "composite" one, and the best th&t can be said of it is that it is dcpressingly solemn ia expression. The tyjie is 5 feet 5 inches tall. She weighs 113 rounds. Her breadth of shoulder is 1 7 inches. The girth of bt-r natural chest ii CO.o indies. She can ex Jand that about two inches. Her girth of hijw is 83.4 inches. Her girth of head is 21. o inches. Her stretch of arms is 03.3 inches. As the college girl is too fieusiblo to constrict her w:iit to any considerablo d-gree, so she in wise enough to give her feet plenty of freedom. The type s foot is inches long. Her waist is 24 icclu in cirenmf ereuce. Her legs are not well developed. Her girth of calf is only i:i inches. In truth the fi;rnrc has more fragility Inan that of her counterpart, without a corresiondiiig gam in grace. It is when he finishes the results of his observations a.s to temperament, how ever, that Dr. Sargent approaches most closely to Uangerons ground, for ho da- clares that the typical college girl stu dent is distinctly nervo-bilious. This seems like a maliciously devised scheme on th.- part of thetioctor to forestall crit icism from the girls. Tho shrewd, scier.tiilc expert fcaD dotib'.lc.s conceived the notion of put ting their very critu.-i.su-s in evidence to prove his sweeping assertion. He will Bcarcely snceeed,-however, in i ropitiat ing the ladies by the deprecatory re mark that Lis lay figure is not that of cn $0 or 90 it cent girl; that it represents merely Z.0 wt cent of their good points, and is halfway from the best to the won t.
