TRAPPER HITS ON QUEER PLAN
TO FOOL WILY WOLF
V.Kit Packs arc Lured on To
Their Ijmm P.»«il}
ftiAQUETTE, Mich. D?c. 1—Many
ingenious schemes havj been de
mised to lure the wily wolf to his
destruction, but few of them have
proven successful. Now along
comes Pete Le Blanc, a trapper of
Floodwood, who claims to have fig
ured out a plan whereby whole
droves of wolves will march right
up to their execution.
Le Blanc divulged his unique
scheme to the official in charge of
the United States land office in
the Federal building here. He call
ed with the request to see a large
map of Marquette County and vicin
ity, as he wanted to trace the exact
course of the Michigamme River,
which he proposes to make the
scene of his operations.
His plan of ensnaring the evasive
beasts as he outlined it, is to
smear tallow and blood' over his
boots. With this he will make a
trail through the woods, and a wolf
is certain to take up the scent.
With the characteristic habit of
wolves, after one takes it up, ottyers
will join in the chase, until the
pack becomes large. After they
have overtaken him, the trapper
says, all he has to do is to shoot
He admitted that it was a danger
ous venture, particularly if he should
run out of ammunition, but he
thought that with a courageous
companion both could reap enough
in wolf bounties to retire for life.
For such companion Le Banc has
in mind one William Pinsoneault,
who traps up back of Port Arthur,
Canada, a nervy chap who is bet
ter known as “Billy Bydam.” This
backwoods Billy is said to be un
afraid of anything that walks,
jumps, or crawls, and he has often
been heard to remark that 'griz
bear she’s not so much if feller
know how to get him.”
CAN IT BE DONE?
Can the Tariff be taken out of
politics ? We agree that it ought
to be done. We frevently hope that
it will be done eventually. But we
do not hesitate to say that in the
present state of feeling of the peo
ple of the United States it is im
possible. Politics, in this connec
tion, may be defined as the strife
of opposing opinions upon ques
tions of public policy. Where there
is no strife there is, in this inter
pretation, no politics. The Monroe
Doctrine, for example, although a
measure of public policy, is “out of
politics,” because the people as a
whole are agreed upon it. A dem
ocracy is controlled by the opinions
of the people. W'henever a prin
ciple of governmental conduct cre
ates a division of opinion among the
people it becomes a political issue,
and a political issue it must remain
until the occasion for it ceases to
exist, or until the people, or a large
and permanent majority of the peo
ple, become convinced that it is
good or bad. Free silver was a
great political issue in 1896. It Is
“out of politics” now, overwhelmed
by the weight of public opinion a
The Tariff is the greatest and the
most persistent political issue this
nation has had to deal with, at least
during the last forty years. And it
is so first, because of its tremen
dous importance, and, second, be
cause public opinion is so radically
and so nearly equally divided. As
long as this condition exists the
Tariff will continue to be, and must
be, a political question. It cannot
be ’ taken out of politics until the
people, or an unchanging majority
of the people, become in accord up
on one Tariff policy or the other.
Not until we have established a
permanent Protective policy or a
permanent Free-Trade or revenue
policy will the Tariff cease to be an
issue in T°l'i'c8, —St. Louis Globe
WHY EVERY SCRATCH IS
Strange as it may seem today to
us who use the words “microbes"
end “bacteria” as commonplaces of
speech, these creatures were not dis
covered until 1881, when Pasteur
brought them to light. »It is true
that he and Lister had for fifteen
years been sure of their existence
and that the latter had shown the
means for fighting them. But
twenty-four years ago Pasteur
actually discovered two of the most
important. These were the staphy
lococcus pyogenes aureus (which
means cocciform, collected in bunch
es, pus-forming, golden-colored mi
crobe), which he found in the pus of
boils and carbuncles; and the strep
tococcus pyognes( which means
cocciform, collected in chains, pus
forming microbe), which he found in
“These microbes are found every
where,” writes Prif. Carlo Fenizia in
La Scienza per Tutti, “ready to in
fect every prick, every smallest cut
upon the skin. . Therefore, when
ever we cut ourselves we should
wash the wound with pure alchol and
paint it with tincture of iodine,
which is a powerful disinfectant. We
ought also to wash with alcohol
even the so-called scratches of the
skin made by the razor w'hen shav
ing, and it would be a most useful
precaution always to pass a bit of
cotton soaked in 70 per cent, clochol
pver one’s face after shaving. For
tnany pimples and sores have been
produced by razors acting as in
struments of infection.
“Washing wounds with antiseptic
substances constitutes antisepsis.
But it is preferable whenever pos
sible to clear the skin of all mi
crobes, to sterilize the instruments,
to disinfect the surgeon’s hands and
to cover these with gloves of steril
ized rubber. Then after the oper
ation it is necessary only to protect
the wound with sterilized material.
This is called asepsis, and everv
modem operating room is erjuipped
for this treatment, every part of it
pnd everything in it being steril
