SMALL-POX. tfliatlff Known of the Early His- tory of tho Disease. ltd Ravages in England and Other OomT tries—Discovery of Inoculation. Jcnneris Introduction of Taednat!on«~ ltd Effect In Redncloff Mortality. Small-pox I Wbat is it ? What Is Its history ? Whore did it come from ? It la defined as a •* Contagious febrile disease, in wbich on tbe ■kin (and often on the mucous membrane) small pnstulos are formed which contain the contagion with its material." The first accounts of this disease or what is ■apposed to bo tbe disease date back to tboae times when tbo history of medicine is unrelia ble, and la covered with myth and uncertainty. Many writers say it was known before tbe Chris tian ora, and spoken of by liarpccrates and Herodotus. Bat in this, of course, as in many other questions that concern ancient medicine, a lively imagination is required. Other writers with equally reliable information think It found its origin In Arabia in tbe timo of Mabomot, and was the result or tbe outgrowth of tbe plague. Others think it flier observed in France or Spain, at. tho cud of tbe fifth century. Gregory of Tours reports a disease something similar to nmali-pox. The Arabs speak of it in 022 A. D. Rhatez spoke .of it, bat classified U with measles. It is certain, howev er, that slnoo tba thirteenth century It has been well known In the Fast, and produced fearful ravages. THE FIRST rUTStOIAN known (o have written on small-pox was Aaron of. Syria, Other writers of a later date speak of its devastation throughout Eu rope. Asia, and Africa. From tho imperfect records at tho disposal of medical man and sci entists. it Is estimated that two centuries before Jcuucr’a time the mortality from small-pox atone was 600.000 souls yoirlv, or about oue-twonlioth of all deaths. In Loudon from 1667 to 1686, and from 1701 to 1712, seven and two-thirds of all deaths were from small-pox, and from 1731 to 1772 eight and ctghi-tonths of all deaths wore from this disease. In Sweden from 1771 to 1761 the mortality from this disease was one-twelfth of all deaths, and In Berlin from 1783 to 1707 ono-twallib of all deaths wore from this disease, and among cbitdieu it was notably high. In faot, the number of deaths is so high as re corded tbat to us at this day it seems almost in credible. In Stockholm, during an epidemic of tbo last century, out ot 800 sick children 270 died. The ravages of this disease continued to bs tho scourge of tba human race up to the time of Jouuot'e DISCOVERT OF VACCINATION, although modified in a certain degree by inocu lation. It is a well-known fact that small-pox ia muob milder, and is modified in ita course when introduced into the syutem through an abrasion of tbo skin than it introduced through tho lungs. This was discovered at au early date, and the idea was taken bold of and every efiort made to utilize U. By whom (bis fact nos first discovered and Introduced is not known. It was known and used in China and Media in early ftagos. In tbe year 1672 a Circassian woman brought the knowledge of Inoculation to Constantinople and from there Lady Montague brought it to England, where it was introduced and round favor, and many thousands were in oculated. Tbe disease produced by this process (inocu lation) was much milder in its form than un modified emall-poz. but aa capable of trauarmt ing the disease and reproducing it aa tbe un modified form. In this way the general aud reckless manner in which inoculation was done started now points of infection, and tho disease rapidly spread to those uot protected, aud re sulted ia a groat epidemic of smail-pox, wldo spicad and duvastatiug iu Its character, so much so that Parliament ranged an act in 1728 by which inoculation was prohibited; By Us use and the experiments mado Id other countries it again found favor, and was brought into general use until 1340, when it was again forbidden by law, under whose bon it has remained ever eiuco. in awuxls, a febrile eruption similar in nature to variola lo (be human species is known to exist. This is common especially in tbo bovine species, and is called the “ vaccine variola ” (on account of be ing observed mostly on oowa and on the udders). Dunug the latter part of the last century, Ed ward Jenner, ao English physician, made tue first observations, and was the first to investi gate this subject. Out of Uls observations and investigations be discovered and introduced vac cination. In 1776 bis attention was called to tbo disease by a milk-maid who bad an abrasion on U<u baud* tpd on whom (he characteristic diieaqe (vaccine disease) made its appearance, from th'S caap be followed op bis observations, and in 1767 ha became fully convinced (bat the vaccine variola was a preventive of and a pro tection against small-pox. On the Utb day of May, 17U(j, he first put his observations into practice, and aid tbo firsc vaccination «n record, in the person of James Phipps. The complete protection afforded by tbo operation was subsequently moved by inoculation of vari olous matter, which proved abortive. lie wrote ao account of the case and of bis discovery, and sent it to the iVttfosop/Rcaf Transactions for publication, where it was refused a place. In 1798, bo reported hie discovery in a work en titled the " Inquiries lulo the Causes and Effects of the Variola Vaccina." which was published lo Loudon, and made known over tbo civilized world. Through many experiments it baa been undoubtedly proven that vaccine variola la in fact a mild form of small-pox. The ratio of deaths in easts of small-pox during epidemics ate about as follows i * Vsccl- Not vacci nated. nated. I IQ* 0 bO , aim 91 Frauee......,,..,.

Tbe Immense saving of life can be readily soon. During tbo past three yean the effect of the vaccine variola has been S'UU-T DEMOHSTATED IH THIS OUT. Three years ago there were many oases in the city. During tbe year I*7B there were 1,708 cases of tbe disease w,th 817 deaths; in 1874 there were some 400 cases with 00 deaths; during the past tear there vrero 80 oases of small-pox with 10 deaths. Thtee yean ago tbe Board of Health began a system of vaccination and examinations with a view of exterminating the disease. Houses that wen Infected wero visited and the inmates vaccinated, and those slok Isolated, and, aa far as possible, sent to hospital. AU persons who bod. visited tbo house wore hunted up and vaccinated. The houses, for a block on each side, were visited, aud all psrsous who were not protected vaocioatcd. This was followed up aa fast aa any new points of infection showed themselves, until the disease was kept in abey ance. The public schools were also examined, aot\ all scholars rejected who wero not protect ed. All tenement and lodging-houses were also examined. .The decrease the first year showed tbo good effects of the work, the deaths coming from 617 down to 80. Tbe work has been prose euted over since, and every precaution taken to keep the disease from getting a hold, and with a very gratifying iosult. From June last to De cember there were no cases in the city, Since then a number of oases have oome into the city, aqd two points of Infection were estab lished. In one house, where they were not protected by vaccination, five out of eight children died. The three who wero vaccinated were hardly sick enough to go (o bod. So far (he Board of Health have kept the disease from spreading, and have kept it confined to tbo bouses where it made ite appearance. This is vsry gratifying to Chicago, when we look st our neighboring cities which are ih direct commu tation with us, and eee bow they have buffered from tbe disease. In Cincinnati they have bad M high as 68 deaths a week, in Brooklyn 46 deaths a week, and (u Philadelphia 20 deaths a week, When we consider the largo number of cases In the smell towns adjoining, and tbe fact that over half of the case# for two years peat bare been brought here by the oars, we have cause to be thankful Ist considering our im munity.

LETTERS FROI THE PEOPLE* toe pimunr-»t*xiNo system. To tho Editor of Tho Chieao Tnbunr t CmoAdo, April 25.—Che remedy which you propose for tbo alleged ibuses that exist in tbe present primary system, in yonr article on tbe subject in 'Sunday's bone of Tub Tribune, is worthy of candid fooaldoratlon. It is not, however, in my oplobn, all that tbe exigency of tho case requires. Tie purity of tho primary s.i stem is of paramount importance to the purity of tbo ballot-box; and yet tho consideration that tbo farmer bsi received has been of so slight a degree, wbci compared with all tbat has boon said and written upon the parity of tho latter, tbat it has nd long since become i o cor rupt ae to defy tbo most atrenuous efforts of purification. I 1 have boon coostloring tbe subject of reform in tbe primary eystim, and have come to the following tonolusloia: I believe, as yon do. that tbe theory of tho pimary-mooting system is tho correct one; that b its abuse, not in itsolf, boa tbo evils that hare boon attributed to it; that tboae evils are catsocl by tbo culpable negli gence of many cUlzms id refraining from avail ing themselves of ihe inalienable rights of citi zens to express Ibrir sentiments in favor of or in opposition to th«o candidates and delegates who ask tbeir auffngea at tbo primary-mooting; by tbo frequent impriation of residents of other wards and predicts by designing poli ticians, for tltir own aggrandisement or tbat of that friends, and by tbe utter impossibility of preventing parties who have no right so to do, from voting for or against ibo camlldde before tho Board. Those being tho ptincipslabusos to which (bo system has been proatitubd, what are tbo remedies P You offer, so one, lie registration of tbe entire voting population if tbo ward, Democratic and Republican. Thqmeans you propose to secure this registration, tamely, by a canvassing of the ward by tbo llapuUicnn Club existing within tbo district, is impraolcablo; and thus tbo remedy you suggest fails of effect. That a canvass of tho ward would fdl or success mav ns oasllr made apparent by I consideration of the known perversity of a lertaln class of people, who distrust the prosetoe In their bouse of a oan vacser of what uattre soever. Besides, political antagonism would tot fail to be ettrred up, and engender, perbapi unpleasant oonsoquonoes. And again, aa it wmld be hard for tbo Republic an Club cnnvasaorflto convince an imperturba ble fintorriflod Donocrat tbat they are working for his own oa woliaa for their party welfare, they would moot w,th many, and perhaps stern, refusals. To bo successful, tola canvassing and the con sequent repislratioj must be stilppoo of alt par tisan appearance aid influence. One atop to tbia end would be b make effort! to bare both parties undertake the work. But (bis step might, perhaps, be retarded by the existence of a olaas of lodapemfents, who would, of course. II consistent, tefa.ii to Declassed with either-of the other parties. There is also to bo found a classof people who nay bo described as independ ent of event the Imhpoudeot movement, who are, novorlhlose, citizen*. and. as such, entitled (o vote lu what manner soever they choose, and who, I doubt not, lould refuse in the greater number of cases tc be canvassed or registered in the way you prop)so. 1 do not behove vdtU vou that a 11 person un willing to register himself on the books of the ward club as a Republican should bo allowed to vote at a Republican primary meeting,’' The reaao*ia obvious. 4 man may be a simon-pure Republican and pot n member of a ward Repub lican Club ; ho may vote for a Democrat oud still vote for a hotter man thau the Republican could or would advance: bo mar bold aloof from tbo party to nbicb ho belongs, and take pleasure lu the conslcoratlon that ho is not to bo ({uvcrucd by a chib led, perhaps, by a cotorio of Government ofiloiala, which was really Uioosso in many of the outside dlouicta during the last oampaitfu. From all this it aeema that there moat bo something done to secure this registration in a way that may bo ealisftctory to all, or nearly all, concerned. Here la mj remedy : Lot the Alder* mon be paid ; let then be constituted Notaries Public ; lot each ward lie divided Into two parts, each Alderman assuming control of ono-baU or )he number of product! of the ward ; lot au ordinance be passed obliging the Aldermen to canvass, or cause to bo amvaiftad. tbo products allotted to them si leastiwo months prior to the ounual oloctiou ; for tbit purpose let them leave blanks In orory house tc bo filled by each and every voter residing thonlu, and before a given period of time shall have elapsed; upon the expliatloo of tho time so plotted lot tho bUnas be called lor by tho Aldaman or hla appointee. In case residents and voters should be tempo rarily absent lot blanks be left for them to till and return Immediately to the Alder man in charge, who nay bo known as the Registrar o( votere of tlo north, or south, or oast, or west half of the V^rd; let tbo return- * log ot these blanks, properly filled, bo made obligatory upon all voters by tbo Imposing of a penalty for neglect to remro them; let tbe same penalty bo Inflicted upen every now-eomer to reside In tho Ward at or iftsr the time, and E receding tbo olection, for which the canvass an been made. When the lauvass has been completed tbe Registrar shtold issue to each and every registered voter a ti|Kot properly cer tifying that the bearer, giving name and address, has boon duly registered and p legally entitled to vote In a certain precinct of ho Ward. Reg istration should cease thirty diys before elec tion. This ticket should be prcsiuted at tbo pri mary. and. after tbo owner bos dlposltod his bal lot, should be destroyed. Then should be no longer a toleration of separata toting for tbo opposing parties. Lot them vote together as at tho general election. Tho prlvlhge of voting should bo denied to all who lose aid fail to give satisfactory proof of having lost U and who, for »oy other cause, fail to present tbdr ticket. Let U bo the sole means of knowing as to whether tbo applicant is legally entitled to rote. This plan will give, in my opinion, tbe most assured confidence in the speedy jurlflcatlos of the primary-system, and will prove an effectual barrier to the corruption of the billot-box. It ii respectfully submitted* Ed. rename agents. To (ht JWtfer •/ The Chicagt Tribune?

Tbo sex ows him a vole of thanks for bis good opinion. As girl and bov at school the sexes mingle, and the association is cousldered bene ficial to both—provoking and elevating thought. In tba real-estate and Insurance offices we find women employed without loss of respect, and in the dry-goods bouses wo find saleswomen, and it would be an insult to both to Intimate that the asaoola- tion was bnrtfnl.

In view of the well-known fact that moot of the fallen women in oar olliee became such through inability to dress in the manner required by their employers if they would retain tbeir situations, and the certain knowledge that if woman were paid more, and not obliged to choose between starvation and shame, does it not look selfish, if not suspicious, that those fearful souls look upon every attempt to enlarge the working sphere of woman with holy horror? Perhaps thoughts of cheaper do mesttes were agitating bis ample mind; out so long aa the Intelligent, educated American girl is placed on a level with tbe ignorant foreigner and negro, and addressed and apoieti of as •' Mr servant,” though physically and intellectually sue mar bo her superior, so long will she refuse to servo, if by going outside of tbe proscribed limits she can gam an honest livelihood. J. Gerald, CQEAPXD AND BETTER DBDOS WANTED. To tho Editor of Th* Chicago I'rtbun*: Chicago, April 27.—Economy, national, mu nicipal, and personal, Is sow tbe order of tbe day. The Jingle of silver currency is an assur ance that there ia now, once more, some real money In tbo country, for which good value should bo received when expended. Moat arti cles of sale have already feU'tho downward ten dency in price, which is tbe natural result of tbo above state of matters. There Is a certain class of articles, however, which eland in ex cessive need of cheapening and Improvement in quality. 1 refer to drugs and medicines. Any one who has purchased in a drug-store in Europe', knows tbat for 000-tblrd or ono-fonrtb of what would be charged here bo will got medi cines of much greater purity and strength. 1 consult a physician hero. He makes hU diag nosis sod writes bis proscription,—that la, does all tho hoadwork. Thereafter tbe druggist furnishes tbe medicine as proscribed. To the doctor is paid for his cultured professional ser vice perhaps 91; to the druggist for bis modi cloo, 91.60. Tboae charges of course vary, but tbat tbo druggist's charges are aa a role as high if not higher than the doctor's is undeniable. I have board it asserted that drug stores boro are so splendidly fitted up, and tbo modiolnfls efr tastefully and pleasantly got up—sugar-coated, etc., etc.—tbat the prices must 'necessarily be high. Weil, for my part. X think the, flint thing to bo attained Is tbo best quality of medicine, and secondly such reasonable prices as will bring them within tho roach of alt who unfor tunately require them. After that, as much taste and ornament as you please. But it is not tbo elegance of tbe store, nor the eogifr-coatiug of tho pill, tbat cures. It is well known tbat proscriptions of renowned European physicians are not satisfactory when made up here. It is because the drugs have neither tbe proper purity nor strength, and the prescribed combina tion produces quite a different medicine from tbat intended. All causes tbat operate to make medicinal sub stances dear ire wrong from a moral point of view. To car* tbs sick, to heal tbe wounded, to alleviate bodily anguish, are looked upon as Christian virtues. Heavy import duties and ex travagant prices ore great obstacles to these vir tues being exorcised. Many a poor person will suffer, to tbe ultimate destruction of bik bodily constitution, because be cannot afford to buy a euro. All taxes upon genuine materia nunlica ate wrong also lu principle. Everything tbat conduces to health should be, eo far as possible, as free as para air ot water. To tax snob is like offering a premium for disease and death. Who would dare obstruct or hinder tho free ingress to our midst of sunlight, air, water, or other salutarr influences? And yet there is no distinction In principle between snob obstruction and the sys tem of “ protective ” taxation, exorbitant profits, and extravagant prices; tbe effect of which is not only to roduco tbe strength and purity, but to greatly enhance the price, of health-restoring and life-prolonging medicines.

Bleep* Prof. Terrier, of King’d College, London, who bM nude tbe ptunoaso* of ilsep »special study, recently • aid lo a lecture thereon that anything which has a tendency to abstract blood from tbe brain favors sleep. Exercise dooa thin, because the moment the weary musclea are at rent the blood rushes to them to repair their lose and is absorbed by them. Digestion aod hot drinks produce the same remit by drawing the blood supply from the brain to the stomach. Conversely. anything that stimulates the brain, ench as sights, sounds, thought, or anxiety, will keep a man awake. If wa, therefore, wish for a refreshing slumber, we moat begin by avoiding cars and anxiety, and take sufficient bodily oxer* eise to induce tbe nocseaary muscular oxbana lion. With regard to the length of Bleep. Dr. Terrier bolds that the heart ia not in a state of constant, but of rhythmical activity, a term of action being followed by a Pause of rest, during which the heart is to ail intents aod purposes asleep. In fact, if tbe pauses of the heart am all summed unit will bo found that it rests or sleeps eight hours out of tbo Iwenty-fonr. the sleep being in tbe proportion of ooe-third as compared with tbe boors of aotioo or work. Ki glit hours are consequently sufficient for tbs adult. THE BUCK HILLS. Experiences of a Obicagontx. Te fIU Editor of Th* Chicago Tribune f Comm Oitt, Dak. Ter., April 15,—According to promise made my many acquaintance* among your readers, 1 write you. Having been Idle all winter, owing to the closing of our shops, 1 de termined lo try my fortunes la this so-called Now Eldorado. Eagerly reading every scrap of information 1 could find about these mile, aod being especially attracted by some handbills published by tbe Northwestern Railroad, 1 found that lino seemed to dealt* to give full and fair information about alt tbe routes, without favor* ing auy one. 1 finally determined to call upon tbe General Passenger Agent of that Hue, and got each advice ae be oould give. 1 called, hoc he would not try to persuade me either lo go or to take any route, but said they could offer mo through tickets to this point by five or elx routes, as they controlled linos to Omaha, Fremont, Grand Island, North Platte City, Bldooy, aod Chey enne } to Bionx City, Yaoktou, Wiener (Neb.), Marshall (Minn.), and Bismarck. With this choice of coulee before me, aod with offer of through tickets to this point by any of these routes. I finally concluded to go by way of Cboyeuuo, and much 1 have regretted that I did so. I bought a first-class ticket from Chicago to Custer City for SCI. and found It was to take me by tbe California tralo of tbe Chicago & North western Railroad, that loft Chicago at half-past 10 in the forenoon, and by which 1 got to Omaha the next morning at 9 o’clock. X had a splendid ride on that road, aod could find fault with It only because the cars were very fall. We had two drawing-room sleeping-cars, with every berth full, aod four coaches that wore also foil. After waiting three hours at Omaha, wo started on the Union Pacific Railroad, and the next day, at about noon, got to Cheyenne. I took Pat rick’s stage line (they called it a stage, but I called it a covered mud-waxonj, and it took us five days more to get to this place. We came over the most infernal road I ever saw. It was rough, muddy, full of melting snow ; rivers to ford; no food to be bad; no ranches for shelter; and nothing but sand, and rock, and alkaline desert, all tbo way. It is a fraud to sand people this way, and no one but the Pacific Road ana Cheyenne people are to bo blamed for it. Tbe route is oil right up to Cheyenne,—in fool, could not be better ; but at Cheyenne the trend begins, and does not end until we reach here. The route is full of thiovoe, out-tbroate, Indians, and utterly desperate people, who have squatted down in tbe desert lor tbe express purpose of robbing M the suckers," as they call every one who cornea .from east of the Missouri River. I should say tbo route tbo so-called atsßce take must be about 400 miles long, as we traveled day and night for five davs. and only stopped to change teams at tbe miserable 4 ‘ dug outs" they called stations. 1 understand this stage company got f2O of tbe money I paid for my fare. 1 find hero about 400 eUaotiossml sod-bousee. There is no gold hero, but no suffering exists among tbo people. Tnero is gold ia tbo Hills, bat not around tuls city. Ou Rapid Creek, near Rapid City, they ore doing well. 1 saw them take out m one pan over $1 north of gold. On that creek men are making about &G per day,and will got more as soon as the frost is out of the soil. 1 think there is plontr of gold to pay auy ono that has means to build aluices, but 1 do not believe there is enough to pay lor pan-work. 1 am now working fora Yankton Mining Company. { They pay ms (5 per day as a nose. 1 have charge of forty miners. We clean up every other day, and so far have got above tICO per day for the forty men. The men are paid p 2 per day m gold. 1 shall stay here, and be lieve 1 shall make my xnle. Food here la plenty and cheap. I pay fio a eack (100 pounds) for Bioux-Clty flour, J 4 cents for Bioux-City bacon, 12 cools for sugar, 40 cents for coffee, aod so ou. If I were coming here again, I should oome via tbe Northwestern Road to Yankton, then go to Fort Hullv per steamboat, and then take a pack-mule for Rapids City. I saw two par ties come in yesterday who came this route, and they got from Chicago to Rapids City in five dare, and had to travel by land only 130 miles. They had two machines fixed to wagon wheels, by which they measured tbe land-route. Most of tbe people who ate here now did not oome to dig gold. They ate speculators and gamblers from Cheyenne, aod come to rob tbo naw-comois. Every one here tells tbe same story as 1 j that is. that gold (a here in paying quantities. After 1 have been hero a little long er, I shall write you again. Until than, I would say, do not oome by Cheyenne, but, if you can do so, fix out pack-mules at Yauktoo. and oome Independent. Bring food, a rifle, and plenty of fixed ammunition. Then, when you get here, you con go where you please, and, if you will work, you can set nob; but, if you are lasy, aod think you can get gold without working, and tiiat very hard, you bad better starve in Chicago, for starve you will if you come here. One thing X hearty forgot, and that is: do not loin any protended company that is being got up by some scamp who is only after your money. I saw one big party leave Chicago under a man who called himself a Major Something, and who claimed be had been hors with Mr. Jeuoay* lie got his people about 60 miles from Cheyenno, and then they found he bad never even been west of Omaha. lie has a partner or two In Chicago now, who, when I left there, were try ing to inveigle others to go to join this 44 Major." 1 was told bv some of the party that some rail road man was a partner In this speculation. This Major told hie men that he would take them through DesMoiuoe, where they would be joined by fifty more; but, - when they get there, tber did not find a man. 1 think it very easy for the railroads to try to- pereuada people 10 come here, and there is one thing I cay say in favor of th* Northwestern Railroad i they told mo they would not adviae any one to go, but, If a man was bound to go. the? could give him tbs beet route. X do not at ail regret that 1 came, and would go again if I was at home. It is rough here, but tbo country is flue, and. if wo eao do nothing else, we can go to farming and atoak-raiaiog. The ground is yet froaen, but, for ail that, the grasa fa 4 inoheablgb. 1 bear that a large party will be here in a day or so, who came through by wagon from Wiener. Respectfully yours, Qeobqs L.
