Oomraotee head-quarters.

The Civil Surgeon, Oomraotee, was Superin-
tendent of the Jail in addition to his other duties
till the middle of February, and for this reason, he says, was unable to examine
much of the Vaccinator's work. He, however, frequently accompanied him to
Oomraotee and to the hamlets which surround that city ; verified some of his
work—but does not know how many cases—and is well pleased with the
Vaccinator. The district Superintendent verified 80 of his cases.

Woon head-quarters.

The Civil Surgeon, Woon, examined 117 cases
before he fell ill: while Mr. Apothecary Pitts was
Officiating he did not examine any cases performed by the head-quarter's
Vaccinator, as most of the time work was in abeyance owing to the Vaccinator
being indisposed.

Buldanah head-quarters.

The Civil Surgeon, Buldana, has verified 313
cases, and complains of the Patails of villages not
giving the Vaccinator as much assistance as is needful.

Basim head-quarters.

The Civil Surgeon, Basim, has examined 192
of the children operated on by head quarter's
Vaccinator, and is satisfied with the work done.

Akolah head-quarters.

And the Civil Surgeon, Akola, Dr. Porter,
visited a number of villages, and examined a good
deal of work.

ment shows: (1)that fewer people are vaccinated ;
