If they  should be no -more than they were  last year, however, they will make,  with this largely increased school  tax, a total rate of no less than  37.23 mills on the dollar.  Last year, when- tax collections  were above the average, property  owners representing nearly twenty  per cent of the entire levy failed to  pay their taxes. These persons consequently incurred interest at eight  per cent on thc Increased amount.  If the taxes this year are increased  by no less than orie_flfth, it is a certainty that a much larger number  of property owners will be unable  to   meet   the  demanfr.       This     will  -mean more property to be sold for  taxes, or rather to revert to the city.  Herein- lies economic  disaster fof  the commun ity unless corrected.  The school trustees are not to  blame. They have no alternative  but to ask for what is needed. The  city council has no choice, in the  matter, but must provide what the  board asks for. The teachers are  not to blame. They have to live,  like the rest of us. Everyone else's  wages   have   been   raised,   why   not  theirs?

They insisted the Oriental producer  was lowering the price of produce  and putting the white farmer in a  position where he could not realize  on his unearned increment, by' locating in his neighborhood and thus  reducing the ���������������������������selling value of his  property.

Unquestionably there is a strong  undertow toward political activities  on the part of many of the members  but it is felt that the U. F. must  be independent of any party affiliation. Thorn is not the slightest indication of any fusion movement. If  the farmer, goes into politics, he will  go "on his own" absolutely, or he  will not go at all. There seemed  general  agreement on  this.  Problems of assessments, bounties  on coyote hides, better system of  dredging on Arrow Lakes, road improvements and public ownership of  all waterpower in the province were  a few of the suggested improvements debated during the afternoon  session on'Monday.

Executor's Notice  In the Matter of the Estate of  William    John    Fenton,    Deceased  X X XXX X X XX XXXXXX S5 X  X LET THE PEOPLE THINK 'jX  X X X XXX XX XXXXXX X  Dear Mr. Editor: I agree with  you when you say that- there is a  great deal of misunderstanding regarding smallpox. This is very evident in the articles which have appeared in your paper on this subject in recent issues.  Before going any further I would  like to quote the following: "There  is a principle which is proof against  all argument, which is a bar against  all information and which, cannot  fail to "keep a man in everlasting  ignorance. .This principle is (contempt   prior   to   examination."  The impression which I have after reading your editorial on the  subject of vaccination is that your  attitude is one of contempt ancl 1  am certain that you have not given  this matter the study and consideration which it deserves. Like many  others you are woefully ignorant  of the most elementary principles  underlying the science and your  condemnation of the thing itself and  of its supporters is ridiculous on  one hand and pathetic on the other.  I consider that your remarks have  had a pernicious effect on the minds  of many people who through ignorance and prejudice oppose vaccination. ' I contend that without the  equivalent of a medical training  that you or anyone else for that  matter are not in a position to "speak  with any degree of finality on the  subject under discussion. To correctly interpret and understand  what one reads in a technical ,work  requires a knowledge of the- scientific terms employed, and any medical man reading the articles which  have appeared, in your paper on  vaccination knows that whatever  knowledge you may have on some  other subjects, about" this one you  have much" to learn. " You are no  more qualified iri my. estimation to  speak authoratively on vaccination  than I am on the "fourth dimension." -       ,  Medical literature is full of abundant proof of.the great,benefit that  the introduction of- vaccination  brought to the human race... I wish  to state as briefly as I can certain  facts regarding the subject of vaccination. To enter into an exhaustive study in a column or so is impossible. The authorities which' I  wish to quote are as follows: Dr.  Milton Roseman, .Professor of Preventive Medicine and Hygiene," Harvard- University, 'formerly director  of the -Hygienic Laboratory United  States Public Health service, and  Sir Clifford Allbutt and Humphrey  Davy Rolleston's "Systems of Medicine," a work of many volumes and  "occupying ithe same - position in  medical literature as the Encyclopaedia Britannica - .does amongst  works  of  that  kind.  In this last work tlie reports of  the Royal Commission on smallpox  are quoted extensively and each  phase of the subject is dealt with  by men  who have spent their whole  NOTICE is hereby given that all  persons having claims against the  Estate of the late William John  Fenton, who died on thc 16th day  of November, 1910, are required t<>  send to JR. .T. Coltart and R. M. Fenton; the executors of the said es-  tate, or to the undersigned, their  solicitor, on or before the 20th day  of February, 1920, a full statement of their claims and of any  securities held by them, duly verified, and that after that date the  Executors will proceed to distribute the assets of the deceased  among the parties entitled thereto,  and having regard only to the  claims which have been duly filed  with them or their solicitor.  Pated this 17th day of January,  192������������������* A. C. SKALING,  Solicitor for the Executors  of the Estate of William John Fenton, deceased. -   j22-4t  lives studying smallpox. They have  chosen to write on the allotted subjects by the editorial board composed of the greatest medical men  in the British Isles. John C. Mc.  Vail, M. D., prefaces his essay on  "Vaccination as a Branch of Preventive Medicine" with these words,  "the evidence of the power of vaccination over smallpox is probably  as great as, if not greater than can  be adduced in support of any proposition outside the domain of the  exact sciences. The proof of the  value of vaccination both in volume  and completeness is very remarkable. One of its most striking features is the convergence of differing lines of evidence toward the  same   conclusion."  There is such a mass of evidence  In support of the statement that  vaccination properly carried- out is  a .remarkable preventative against  smallpox that it is beyond my understanding how any reasonable  person after studying it could take  a  contrary view. ���������������������������>������������������������������������������������������'..  The imimunity against smallpox  which is conferred by vaccination is  not absolute nor does one attack of  smallpox confer absolute immunity  against subsequent attacks. In one  authentic case the  person  had- five  OKANAGAN  COMMONER  attacks of the disease but it has  been amply proven" that number for  number uhvaccinated persons contract the disease far more readily  than vaccinated ones in the ratio  of-from five to one to sixteen to one.  The proof of this is absolute. That  other infectious diseases have been  communicated by vaccination is  only too true and I have never  heard a medical man deny this but  in recent years complications of this  kind are very rare. It has been  stated that lockjaw has been communicated but to show how rarely  this is actually the case in the U.  S. army and navy with a record of  585,000 vaccinations not a single  case of this disease was seen. With  the use of "bovine virus which is  used exclusively now .syphilis,  tuberculosis and leprosy are impossible. The danger connected with  vaccination is infinitesimal when  when compared with the benefit  conferred. I wish it to' be distinctly  understood that pus from diseased  animals is not employed in vaccinating. Vaccine pulp and vaccine  lymph are used and these substances  are materially different from pus.  In' the - final report or the Royal  Commission" on vaccination this appears: "Without encumbering our  report with - the details relating to  pyaemia, bronchitis, diarrhoea and  skin diseases, which are all said to  have increased owing to the mischievous influence of vaccination,  we may confidently say that^there is  no evidence to justify the statement."  ��������������������������� Voigt, of Hamburg, has performed  more than a quarter of a million  %'accinations. His observations are  the more important as he had special arrangements for tracing and  investigating every case of vaccinal  complication. In 100,000 vaccinations he saw one case of axillary  abscess; two of abscess; one of carbuncle; two of erysipelas; and five  of .vaccinal ulceration, with only one  death.  There is no authentic case on  record in .which .cancer nas resulted  from   vaccination.''   "~  The greater care is exercised in  the" selection and. preparation - of  animals for' the making of s the vaccine and modern methods- render  the vaccines remarkably free from  impurities  such  as - uacteria.  Speaking of my' own experience  I vaccinated; between 4,000 and  5,000 men in the army and I-did not  have a single complication and other  medical officers had the same experience. I have never met a doctor who was opposed-to vaccination  in  principle  or  practice.      -  The fact that the vaccination has  not taken does not necessarily mean  ihat "the individual is immune. The  operation may not have been properly performed or the'vaccine virus  may have been rendered inert by  heat or some other agency.  I was vaccinated four times before a take was obtained.

Thanking you for the favor, I am,  Very truly  yours,  H.  A.  BARRETT.  ".Successful      Vaccination'  we  are all  prone  to err  where our  interests  are  directly  concerned.  The opponents of vaccination admit that occasionally a person who  has been successfully vaccinated,  contract's smallpox. The failure of  vaccination to cause immunity is  owing to the fact that the vaccination has "run out." But no physician can explain, nor does any medical book recite, what it was that  "run" out," or how, why, when and  where it "run out", or where it  went.���������������������������The ' Philistine.  No germ of smallpox has been  found. Therefore, _it cannot be  claimed that vaccination destroys a  disease_germ that exists in the body-  thus rendering the patient immune  from some  particular malady. l  A "successful vaccination" is  where the patient does not die, no  adverse results are visible, and :a  well-defined scar, as a record of the  sore,  remains  tlirough  life.

Prior to  th-it date smallpox was quite prevalent in that country but since the  law ven!- into effect there have been  no e.-ilen'ics of smallpox in Germany ci ess lite the fact that the disease has been frequently introduced  from without. In IS97 there were  but eight deaths from smallpox in  the entire German Empire and since  then long periods have passed without a single death. - The German  army has had only two deaths from  smallpox since 1874 and one of  these was a reservist who had not  been successfully vaccinated. There  is no substitute for vaccination.  Fresh air, good food, clean water,  etc., are only contributing factors.  Smallpox is no respecter of persons  or rank, rich or poor, and the contention that clean living is ^ satisfactory preventative is pure twaddle.

It ,was  real smallpox, not the two per cent  article we are haying now. The  .. i'H.fc'1 hctJ Liie .-iuiaiipoA detail-, i. e.,  we had to follow up the new cases,  and   see  the   dead   carried   away.  Dr. Fagan was health officer at  the time. Being forced to-come into direct contact with some, of the  worst cases, the reporter was given  this preventive. prescription by Dr.  Fagan. The simplicity of it may lead  some to scoff, but if conscientiously  followed it will prove most .efficacious.  While in contact with the disease,  'every" morning before breakfast  dissolve say half or a full teaspoonful of cream of tartar in a glass of  water and drink it. This will thin  the blood ancl take away its winter  sluggishness. Then on going fo bed  at. night and upon rising ini the  morning put a few drops of carbolic  acid in a dish of water ancl sponge the  body, rubbing briskly in drying. This  will' remove all impurities ' forced  tlirough the skin during the clay or  at night ancl is the simplest rational  preventive   known.  Plumbing Heating  ENDERBY, B. C.
