Small-pox In Ann Arbor
Small-pox struck Ann Arbor last week but not hard. A pharmio student namei C. S. Daly was exposed n Lyom, ï Y., when at home during the holidays and was vaccinated on the same day o the exposure acd beoause of it. His arm troubled him severeiy, and last Saturday he called a physician who diecivered that ho hd small-pox, there being a typical eruption on his back. The board of heal h immediately took charge of the case, vao cmnated all who had been near him, anc on Sunday evening removed hito fror'n hi, room in Frank Howard's house on Catharine st., to a vacant house on Mann st where everything is done for liis comfort.' The wildest rumors have been circulated, hut there was no foundation for tbem! There seems to be the most absurd fear of small-pox on the part of people who evince no alarm when diphtheria is around. Therfi was some objection raised to placing Mr. Daly in the house on Mann st, by a few restdents on that street, and onè of the persons who remonetruted had diphtheria in his house not long ago and faiïed to report it. There is really no danger from small pox if one is vaCcinated and does not unnecessarily go near a case. Diphtheria and scarlet fever, which are in Ann Arbor all the time nearly, are more to be feared.
