Smallpox Epidemic, Part XXX

Indianapolis Journal - 1900-02-16 (Smallpox epidemic)Smallpox Dying Out.

Dr. Hurty, secretary of the State Board of Health, said yesterday that he was receiving very few reports of new cases of smallpox and thought that the good work done by the county health boards in the way of vaccination and other observances of the health laws had about mastered the disease. Dr. Cole, health officer of Greene county, reported one new case of smallpox at Jasonville, Greene county.
