Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
TERRE HAUTE, Ind., Feb. 20. – More than five hundred pupils of the city schools were turned away to-day because they had not been vaccinated or could not furnish a certificate of a successful vaccination within seven years. It is thought that many of these pupils will be vaccinated.

Two new cases of smallpox have been reported. They had been watched by the health authorities for some days as suspicious cases. The fact that they were under surveillance, as also all who had been exposed to them in the preliminary stages of the disease, gives hope that no other case will be reported form the same exposure. There is only one case in the pesthouse now, that of a traveling man named Arthur McDaniels, who was taken from one of the hotels at this own request.
