A Word of AdvIce.
Having passed through the ex
perience of a genuine case of small
p)ox, I want to say to all who have
not been vaccinated that it is to
their interest to do this at once.I
knowv from experience in my own
household that vaccination tends
to prevent the disease taking, or if
one should take small-pox after
8uccessftil vaccinatioD, the disea.
is not so severO.
I know that vaccoination does
good, and I advise all who' have
not attended to this withIn the last
two years to have a physician to
Vaccinate them at once.
