Not far from the train on which
this is written is Arkansas City, Kan.,
there lives a dog, name unknown, and
all the rest of his life that dog will
believe in miracles.
His owner, piobably dead by this
time, was Warren Hardy, man of

schools, infants, 50,000 hospital pa
tients, are some of those vaccinated.
And in Paris smallpox doesn't ex
ist. To what do gentlemen that op
