Vaccinated Them All

There is much alarm still on the West Side over the spread of smallpox. Meaning to prevent the disease from setting back his work, Manager Wellman of the new stone works ordered all men to be vaccinated at once, under the alternative of dismissal. The entire force of forty men, with the exception of two, lined up and were vaccinated. The two derelicts are hunting a job.”

“The so-called smallpox is still spreading over the country, but so far no fatalities have been reported from it.”1
