H " THE MICROBES
H D To read the reports of physicians when they
H '3 1 meet In convention and tell each other what they
H J? have been doing Is scarcely business, for the av-
H ' q crago man rises from tho perusal asking himself:
H 11 "What Is my special microbe and which way Is he
H 1 D beading now?" Wo have an account of one of these
H j conventions, which Is full of Interest, but alns, It
J. I Is n's0 full of microbes.
H 1 j Ono scientist brought In a boy 17 years of ago
H J and explained that when ho reached the hospital
H ho was supposed to bo dying. Ho was but 14 per
H cent below zoro. He had hookworms. Under treat
BBI D ment he went up to 54 per cent In six weeks, and
BBI L' D In a few weeks moro reached 98 per cent. Ho Is
H D still short for his age, though he haB grown four
BBI j? Inches in height in tho last twelve months.
BBI d A German physician has found tho cnuso of
BH I 3) Infant paralysis In a germ so small that it cannot
Ii B bo traced by an ordinary microscope. Th'ls doctor
I JJ ' promises a remedy shortly. A Paris doctor reporto
D his conviction that habitual drinking of alcoholic
D " liquors Is, If not the chief cause, at least tho con-
j D trlbutlng causo of tuberculosis, liver diseases,
I D Brlght's disease, paresis, locomotor ataxia and a
I H great encouragement to cancer. A modern germ Is
D the cause of almost universal trouble with the eyes
m D and n remedy is promised soon.
H D And most of theso diseases, tho convention
H t pi agreed, nro duo to the crowding together of many
BH J D pcoplo in a small space and tho neglect of health
BH j Di ,aws by even tho wealthy. Insidious indolence
BH I Di steals upon tho people and tho bacteria take d-
BH ' 1 vantage of them nnd tako up their nbodo with
ilH t? them. I
D Dreary as tho details are, they aro not wlthou'
BBJ D encouragement, for tho medical fraternity Is fight-
BH Ing each particular enemy as he appears and eery
H d' year shows Improvement In general sanitation.
H D Jl1 tllc 'nfit very few years most wonderful dls-
H D covcrles have been made. Somo of theso may bo
H 1 J5 noted. Dr.' Poch discovered tho tubercular bacillus,
B Dr. Locflfor discovered tho ptomaine bacillus; Dr.
BK D Brleger discovered tho diphtheria bacillus; Prof.
BJi u Herman Straus discovered how to pasteurlzo milk;
BJI i) our own physicians discovered the causo of yellow
Jij fever and tho causo of Panama fever; tho malaria
HBj bacillus has been run down, and a remedy Is prom-
Bw T) lso(1 E00n: Sir Thomas Oliver announces the dls-
1 D covery of n chemical compound almost certain to
V X) euro coal dust dlseaso and prevent coal dust ex-
H plosions In mines. So It is seen that ono enemy
H v D J of nca,tn uftcr another Is being run down and
H XV throttled and enough has already been shown on
H Hh which to found a hopo that when peoplo learn to
H Q tako caro of themselves and after moro invcstlga
Hj I? tlons nro made by tho scientists, dlseaso will be
H p, pretty well banished from civilized states.
H i) Surely a great work Is going on, and tho work
H D Is a notlco that cities should not bo sparing of
H t D funds to Insuro tho pcoplo against faulty snnlta-
H ' Hon, for every fresh discovery Is n new reminder
M ' I n that tho most essential thing In every city Is clean-
B j D Hncss.
K f I D When tho wise man wroto that "cleanliness is
H y noxt to godliness" ho was not understood. Ho was
m jj probably called a crank, but every modern dlscov-
1 I) cry of tho causo of dlseaso only adds to his rep-
H- D utatlon as a real scientist.
1 , lu this connection a wonderful story comes in
H r tho Now York papers. On tho 23rd of last July a
M 1 man was found unconscious on tho railroad tracks
H 1 I near Vonkors, N. Y. He was taken to tho St. Jo-
H T soph's hospital at Yonkers and on consultation the
H C surgeons decided to tako tho one in a million
H chance to savo tho man's life by an operation. Tho
H account, continuing, says:
H Drs. Duffy, Knull and Lopez performed the
1 operation. Dr Lopez says sixty grams of tho
H man's brain wcro taken from tho frontal lobo.
H v It would not have been n great surprise to the
H: ,, surgeons if tho patient had died on tho operating
H, tnblo or immediately afterward.
H . nut, Instead, tho man's respiration had be-
H L come moro regular By morning ho was breath-
H v Ing oven more freely nnd tho heart action was
H I better. Tho physicians gathered at his cot and
H f gazed nt him blankly, ns if he had been brought
Hj j back from tho dead. Thero was a marked lm-
D , provement twenty-four hours later, and ono of
H tho physicians, moro sanguine thnn the rest, Bald

!"Ho may llvo, but if ho does, he'll bo an in

HU ; After n few days tho man, when questioned,

Hjj ' 1 morning the nurses nsked him tho usual questions,

COOK AND PEARV ' '
Life has recently held a presidential election and
have elected Cook nnd Peary AIJ tho formalities
and social functions havo be'en carried 'out 'without
a hitch. Tho Inauguration ball was a grand af
fair and Is treated In connection with the landslldo
as follows In a recent Isbuo of Life: ,.
The landslide fir Cookj and Peary Vaa wholly
unexpected, except by a( few insiders who realized v '
.the respect they havo both commanded rsjnqe 'tho
"great discovery of tho North Polo, which ba&'noo
much added to our national resources. ' , f
Perkins knew It was coming'. Ho offered a
million to call the wholo thing off but our coumii'
try Is everything to us. ,1 ,?
Tho Inauguration took place night before last
The usual custom of having it on th'e fourth of
March both successful candidates regarded as a
great mistake And as long as tho American peo
plo had voted for our candidates, there. wa& no
reason why tho decision should not go Into Im
The Inauguration Ball, which took placo In
Wall Btrect and Washington at tho samo time,
was a grand success. Tho costumes were elegant. '
Among others were noted:
Colonel Theodoro Hoisovelt Bull Moose hunt
ing costumo trimmed with Ananias braid, being
the special gift of tho Harvester Trust.
W. H. Taft Pull regalia of Cincinnati homo
spun made In Lawrence, Mass., of ad valorem

FROM OGDEN TO
A correspondent writing from Burley, Idaho, to
the Standard defends tho Oregon Short Line in Its
contest' with tho reclamation service of the govern
ment over the right-of-way for tho Saljne-to-Burley
railroad, the construction on which was stopped by
the government making unusual demands on tho
Harrlman road. .
At first wo were of the opinion that tho reclam
ation service 'was right in its contention, but fur
ther Investigation leads us to tho conclusion that
tho railroad Is Justified in resisting the extraordin
ary demands as to how tho road shall bo construct
ed over tho Irrigation project and what obligations
must bo borne In relation to future water lines.
Tho time forthoso In charge of tho project to
havo spoken was when tho right-of-way was .being
cecured and before tho purchases had beep 'made
and tho road Btartcd. Even then they should have
been slow to put heavy nnd discouraging burdens
on an improvement that could do so much to mako
piosperous, all that region and assure tho ultimate
succoss of tho Irrigation undertaking Itself.
Somo Influence should bo brought to benr on
tho heads of the reclamation service to cause them
If tho differences nre Irreconcilable and a mon
etary consideration Is necessary to satlbfy thq ,
government, It is Just posslblo thn tho people of'
nurley and Ogden, by united action, enn arrange
to meet tho requirements. j
An Ogden commltteo should bo named to meet
with tho peoplo of Burley to tako preliminary steps
In tho direction of bringing about tho resumption
of work on the Sallno-to-Burley lino and tho com
pletion of tho samo within tho coming year.
There could bo no moro Important railroad con'
structlon, from nn Ogden standpoint, than this cut
off into tho granary of Idaho, unless It bo an ex
tension of tho Denver & Ilio Grande railroad, north
from Ogden. Ogden Standard.
Anent tho recent general election Life comments
Report says Mr. Taft Is happy. Colonel
Sooeevelt Is reported reticent, but cheerful. Dr.
Wilson Is bearing up. Nobody seems disappoint
ed, surprised, anxious or dispirited over tho elec
tion. Never wns an election In which bo many
people, on tho wholo, were satisfied, and so few
repined. Even Dobs doubled his vote, and the
Socialists nro exultant. So nro tho suffragists.
Somo contemporaries, tho World for one, havo
pointed out to Mr. Roosevelt his callous Iniquity
In busting tho Republican partywldo opon whero
ho might havo gummed it together with Hadley
but that Is not a, crimo that a Democratic paper
has much call to complain of, nor one, wo sup
pose, that will keep tho Colonel awnko through
many remorsoful nights. Mnvbe tho Hadloy" gluo ,
wouldn't havo hold. Anyhow, tho Republican par
ty is no worso off nnd porhaps better, In two
distinct pieces than it would havo been with
that fatal crack in It. As things nre it knows
whero it is.

Holds Editor And Wife At Bay For
Houra Before Shooting
Paris, Doc. 0. The polico Investi
gations Into the, shooting yesterday1
of M. Ducret, editor of th0 anarch
ist newspaper, Free Idea, Bhow It
was attended with t circumstances of
''cold-blooded cruo'ty that are rarely
equalled in fantastic melodrama., La
Combo, the anarchist assasin, burst
into Mf D'ucrct'n office Tuesday night
at 10730't'clock and with a pistol In
each hand announced to M. Ducret
'and-hls,,wife' that they had sold him
and musr die. ,
Prom' that hour until 6:30 Wednes
day morning. La' Combo piled the
couple with queetlonn and threats,
trying -to make them acknowledge
they had betrayed him.
He played with them as a cat does
wfth a mouse, alternately menacing
and then forgiving., Mme. Ducret
pleaded with La Combo to spare her
self and her husband on account of
their five-year-old son, who was
asleep In a crib at tho couple's bed
side during the wholo of tho horrible
night. Tho bandit said, however,
that ho would kill tho boy. Finally
La Combo fired two shots In quick
succession at M. nnd Mme. Ducret,
who Instinctively throw themselves
backward and, only M. Ducret was
hit. Tho detonations of tho assas
sin's revolver, however, extinguished
tho lamp In tho bedroom and La
Combe left, believing that both of
them were dead.
It appears that La Combe lodged
with the Ducret homo tho night of
November 8 when four masked men
burst Into tho postofllco at Bezons,
n suburb of Paris and shot and killed
the husband of the postmistress and
decamped with tho money and
stamps. When La Combo sought to
leave tho-house tho next morning he
found it surrounded.
Somehow he managed to escape
and hide In an adjoining house until
tho polico left. Previously they had
mado a fruitless search of tho Du
crets home. It was this fact that led
La Combo to believe tho two Ducrets
had betrayed, him.
Tonight, it was said, M. Ducret has
some chanco to recover from his
wound, although his condition is
grave. La Combe has not yot been
