Statement of Health Board.
As wo are daily receiving inquir-
ies concerning the vaccination
proclamation, we make the follow.
ing statement and report:
Wo have eudeavored to do our
duty as a Health Board, in control.
Ed- Hog and stamping oir smallpox in
this country, employing the only
three methods of doing's, viz
Quarentiuing, Detaining, und Vac
cmating. \ •
We know lhat to maintain i
quarantine is expensive, at the
same lime it is indispensible, and
we have had fo labor under great
disadvantages, owing to the fact
that theie is no money, at present,
io the treasuary for that purpose,
und the commissioners offered no
support in this method, hut rather
discouraged the idea; as a result
the majority of th* merchants in
Mangum refused to advance any-
thing for the maintainance of
quarantine, sounder these circum-
stances we decided to employ vac-
.•ination. a method that is employ-
ed all over the world, and is being
employed at the present time in
Texas and many other states.
If half as much had been said
encouraging vaccination as has
bteeu snid2o discourage if, small
pox would have been a thing ol
the past iu Greer county. j
Now a word to those who have 3*
oot been vaccinated: My dear^
people, we are going to have troo $
bl® with small pox in this country ^
for the next two years, unless you *
are vaccinated and the sooner it is!
done the better it will be for the
country. It is a duty you owe to
your country, your neighbor, your | 5-
familjr and yourself. , f > TahlA
We have passed the order of ,^ 2
