BOY SCOUTS EFFORTS.
The China Mail is glad to give prominence to the wonderful help which is being given to those in charge of the vaccination campaign. During a period of about three weeks the ordinary Boy Scouts have vaccinated 6,300 people. During a similar period, the Sea Scouts visited about 680 native craft and vaccinated 3010 people, making a total approaching 10,000 vaccinations. The authorities are doubtless grateful for this practical evidence of the value of the Boy Scouts organisation, whilst the community should be ready to note the willingness of those in charge of the Association, and the young members themselves, to spend time and labour in true and effective citizenship. It is an example not merely to note, but to emulate.
