But the protective tariff failed to prevent It, observes The Commoner. •v _____ The New York Press, « republican paper, says that Secretary Taft has railways of the country—one of the consequences of the panic. The railroad men who have been thrown out of employment facetiously call these idlers "Teddv bears." "long boon prominent in public life, but neier by the vote < f the people.'' Tjhe Press gives this as the Taft record: "1881 Assistant prosecut ing attorney, Cincinnati—Appointed. 1882—Collector of Internal revenue, Ohio—Appointed by President Ar thur. 1887 -Judge of the superior court, Cincinnati -Appointed by Governor Foraker.

DOWN WITH THE TICK I Spotted fever is peculiar to certain localities in the Rocky Mountain states—Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada and Montana. In Ravalli, Missoula, Granite and Sanders counties the ex istence of this malady has been of record since 1885. 1'uring these 22 years, according to the re ports of all resident physicians of the four counties, compiled by the state board of health, there has been a total of 141) cases, or an average of not quite seven a year, out of a total population now aggregating about, 40,000. The majority of these cases occurred in Missoula county.

In view of the fact that other para sitical disseminators of disease, such as the mosquito that produces malaria and yellow fever and the cattle tick that causes Texas fever, are rendered comparatively harmless by prevent ing these insects from biting infected persons or retarding their growth by doing away with their breeding places, it would seem a comparatively easy task to rob the Rocky Mountain tick of its terrors by similar methods, The proportion of infected ticks in nature is extremely small and, for tunately, the infected districts in the Bitter Root valley are few and rapid ly shrinking in area. As fast as the land is cleared of timber and brush, turned by the plow and brought under cultivation, the woodtick dis appears from the locality. It follows then that the chief re maining source of infection is through the medium of domestic animals— cattle, horses, dogs, etc.—and such rodents as gophers and groundhogs, that frequent the infected districts. ^ ie £°ph flrfl am ^ groundhogs may be destroyed by poisoning, and the domestic animals may be kept away froni the tick-infested pastures dur ing the months of spring or breeding season, or else they must be kept free from ticks by spraying with oil or greasing, as is done in the south. Discussing the question of tick , eradication, Dr. Ricketts advocates stroying the breeders this work would be confined roughly to spring. -The fact that the tick passes t hr ongh a definite annual cycle is also important in extermination by tho process of starvation, as the »dult ticks, the active only in the destroying the adult breeding ticks by a process of starvation. Dr. Ricketts in part says: "The methods to be employed de pend entirely on a correct knowledge of the life and habits of the tick. It is a point of iirst importance that, the tick cannot perpetuate itself without sucking animal blood. It may indeed derive a certain amount of nutrition from vegetable mai ter, enough to tide over a period of hunger^ until it can reach an am mal host. It is not generally believed by scientists, how ever, that ticks can subsist 011 vege table matter even to this extent. H owever this may be, it is impossible . , lor the female tick to reach the great d evelopment which is necessary be fore it can lay eggs, without a pro longed feed on animal blood; and if females can in any way be prevented from laying their eggs it is manifest that great inroads would be made on the crop of ticks for the following year. The methods of pickiug and g reusing the cattle at the proper time of jear, as practiced in the south, de pends entirely on this principle. "It is also an important fact that the tick in its development passes t hrongh a definite annual cycle, that t here is only one breeding season for the Rocky Mountain woodtick, that is, during the months of spring. Hence if it seemed advisable to begin a campaign of tick-eradication by de Inasmuch breeders, are pritig, it is mani fest tliat they will soon die if they do : not reach animal hosts during this time, and with the death of tin breeders a crop the following sprint becomes impossible. This principle has been acted on in the south with great success, the result being ac complished by keeping the stock away from the tick-infected pastures during the breeding season." Stray.
