MAYOR OF-NELSON.
John Houston is out for the mayoralty oi Nelson, His platform appeals
to all who really have the welfare ol
Nelson at heart. That city is suffer
in£ from partial paralysis and requires some strong' spirit to sit in
front and pump air into its sagging:
tires, Houston seems to be the man.
Ilo already has done more for Nelson
than any other biped that ever
breathed the ozone of Baker street.
Ho has some faults, but nothing is
perfect except an embalmed corpse
going eaet. Houston does not love
tho gralter, nor the wobbler nor
the chaps with the short pants
who suck their Scotch with a straw,
and blow the atmosphere full of
"Aw" expressions. John will have
the support of the real people in his
city. Those tied to corporations and
beer wagons will clutch his throat
like a bald-headed eoon reaching for
Hies, but the citizens who desire
their city to become progressive will
mark their billots for the old battle-
axe that has blazed, many a hard
trail, and made himself poor in the
service of the public. Nelson needs
a jolt to get it on the track again,
and John is the man to supply the
Jack^ei'ewj,__lLhe-cannQt.pun.itQnt-Q
against the establishment ol a sanitarium for consumptives at that town.
There is no need tor suoh alarm. In
Los Angeles there are over So,000
people all the time more or less
tainted with the white plague, yet
that city within tlie last fourtcn
years has grown faster than any city
in America. Kamloops people might
stick this argument in their petition
against allowing unfortunates a
chance to breathe ozone around their
windy location.
There is no truth whatever in the
story printed in a Vancouver paper
that  the  Methodists would open
Nowhetc was there, apparently,
any relict for this ferocious waste of
human life. These people were ens'
into the turmoil of the let-alone civilization of America; no one paid any
attention to them, or cared what happened to them—with the result that
many ol them were literally worked
to death.—Ray Stannard Baker, in
"Tho Rise of the Tailors," in December McClure's.

LIKE A SQUARE DEAL.
It pays to be a man all through
and at all times.   There are rewards
1 j for those strong characters who do
tavern in Winnipeg, a la tho Bishop not measure all things by money,
the main line of prosperity the town
might as well be marked a flag station, and the cows turned in to keep
the grass from hiding the scenery.
An editor always considers that
one subscription in* his hand is worth
live on the books.
Potter gin-mill in New York. The
Methodist church is radical iu many
respects, but it will never attempt to
convert souls by selling gin-fizzes as
a side line. The church and saloon
can never be successful partners, in
spite of the fact that Potter thinks so.
Salvation is always free in churches,
but such a thing is out of the question
with the saloon.

THOUGHTS OF HOME.
Autumn* weather hangs on to Feline like an Ontario Grit to a pap barrel. It is loth to depart and toys with
December like a June bug with the
butter. We wish it would go away
so that the beautiful could carpet out-
streets with a mantle of white and
the tinkle of sleigh bells again oscillate the ozone outside Out* editorial
palace. There is nothing like hav-
ins_M^ervihln!?_Jiii__sej^aiL.,_^MMJ.
says  the Minneapolis Bulletin  and
Trade.
The country appreciates such men.
The recent elections show it.
Folk of Missouri is a good illustration. He stood tor clean government, duty, and a clear conscience.
It matters little what Folk's politics
are. What he stands for and how
consistently he stands for it is what
the people of his state thought of on
election day.
Principle must guide every man
and every businsss. The people
may be a little slow at times in fer
reting out him whose ways are dark;
but the reckoning comes'"sooner or
later and the public is sure .to re wan I
the man who gives the people, a
square deal all the time.
It you have been in business long
It duz me good to go back hum,
Where all my folkses be,
An' git th' rousin' welcome thet
They alius have fer me;
1 like tew see my neighbors, too—
Th' vvuns I uster know,
When I vvuz jes' a little lad,
A long, long lime ago.
The ol'housc looks about th' same,
Anestin' mungsl th' trees;
Th' birds is single' jest as sweet,
Likewise the honeybees; 1
And up and down the front yard walk.
Where once I uster play,
The same stinflow'rs thet bloomed thai*'

Is bloomhi' thai*' lew-day.

Consumption is mainly a house

and not enough ol tho outdoor article.
Breathe deeply of pure air and you
need have .10 fear thut your lungs
will ooze uwuv in small clots ol
phlegm. Tho more wo breathe the
more wo live. Burn up tho carbon
in the flesh by deep draughts of ozone
and you will soon know what, it
means to be alive and doing well.
In Canada consumption is rampant;
because ignorant people rely upon
heavy clothing to keep them warm,
Instead ol exercise, shut down the

merchants conic and go. Some of
them piobably lacked ability. That
explained their failures. But others
who had ability were using it in the
1 wrong way. Thoy were giving the
litugh to the honest, sincere and
(rank business policy. They could
make money easier than by that
avenue. They seemed to prosper
for a time, but it was soon over.
When the crash camo the truth stood
out. Thoy simply could not fool'all
the people all the time.
Whether you are in business or in

BEER & SCIENCE
$
i
^^^^^^^^^^^^^«^^^»^^»
That an ordinary American<beer mug 1
should be the means of creating one of
the most tremendous sensations in the
history of science, that it should drive
a ureal man from fame and fortune to
the life of a common laborer, seems almost inconceivable outside the realm
tif fiction, yet this is jusl what the miniature imitation of an ordinary beer
mujj lias done for Professor Beal Slcere,
Michigan's most eminent scientist,
vviio.ii short time ago recognized as
among the most famous of living
zoologists, is now an ordinary truck
gardener and peddler.
Never has a story of great human
interest been told than tbat which has
driven this man, tlie leader of many of
the most important government and
scientific expeditions ever sent out from
Ihe United States, lo weed, dig and
clean vegetables, and then to peddle
tbeni among bis hundreds of old as-
soniates in bis own-town.of Ann Arbor,
where for seventeen years he bad held
a professorship in the University ol"
Michigan.
Ask any of tbe thousands of new
students at Ann Arbor who Professor
Heal Siecie is and they will tell you
that a while back he was an instructor
there, and thai he has a big zoological
collection in the museum.
Ask any great student in any part of
tbe world and he can spend hours in
describing Professor Sleere's exploits.
Kuropean scientists will point out that
Professor Slcere lias in the British
museum the-greatest collodion of birds
ever brought together by one man;
thai he was the lirst scientist to undertake the exploration of the Philippines,
and that in tbe Brilish museum alone
he is represented by fifty new species
of birds. Others will tell of his great
scienlillc expeditions for the United
States government and the Smithsonian institute, and of the priceless
South American collection he made
for tbe Buffalo exposition. Vet
only a few of these, if any, will know
that, in farm clothes, battered hat, and
cowhides,   this   gieai   zoologist   now
niarkable steps in  the history of great
men.,
, He became their truck gardener and
peddler.
In his rambles in search of birds and
animals in the swamps about his home
he had discovered a tilled-up lake—a
tract of-ink-black loam and muck,
situated in a wild marshy stretch, far
away from neighbors, and here, six
miles from tlie university, he ■ began
raising green stuff for the tables of his
associate professors and for the boarding houses of the hundreds of students;'
he bad once taught.
And" if one goes to see Professor
Steere today he will find him down
there in the black loam, in'the marsh,
perhaps on his hands and knees weeding onions or picking potato bugs from
growing vines. For hours. he will
kneel, dragging himself along bqivvcvn
the rows, and then will slip away to
some corner of she field and become
absorbed in a work of science. It may
be thai in the morning when he goes to
his onion or bean patch he carries under his arm a rare beast or reptile,
whose stuffed skin needs repairing and
upon which he works during the interval of "rest." The barns and sheds
and house on his swamp farm are filled
wilh the rarest collectioi's, and among
these he spends all of the time he is
not at'work. .. "
Instead of rising at 8 o'clock, in time
to get a light breakfast before meeting
his classes, he now rises at 4, and milks
cows and feeds chickens and pigs. Instead of leaving his house the immaculate Professor Steere, be has on the
rough, 'cheap clothes of the farmer,
stained and soiled witb the work of the
fields. But the greatest and most
pathetic change is seen when Professor
Slcere goes to town, driving a truck
wagon loaded wilh onions, celery,
beans and other garden produce.
Everybody knows him and everybody
is willing to buy. And each lime he
comes and goes his road lies along the
campus, and as strange as it may
seem, his great  ethnological  and zoo-
uninhabited country he came upon a
number of ruined villages., around
which human skeletons lay in great
numbers. Still beyond this he encountered a solitary family, and held
them captive for several days, until he
found that another hundred miles on
was a whole tribe hurrying for the interior in order lo escape a terrible
malady that was destroying them.
This disease 1 Professor Steere found to
be measles. In the course of a fortnight be overtook the strange people,
who called themselves Jamamadi, and
lived anion   them for some time
After an exciting career of more than
thirty j ears, during which he has led
eight different scientific expeditions,
few people believe that Professor Steere
can nlvvavs [devote himself to the rais-
I ing of garden truck, but if this greatest of Michigan's scientists has any
pians for the future be keeps them to
himself.
But science the world over would
not be surprised if they learned tomorrow that Professor Joseph Real
Steere, peddler, had been suddenly
called upon to lead another great expedition to-faraway part of the world.
But until then this great man will
continue to raise vegetables for those
among whom he once lived.
TTillUeBTniWliiulcBTin^
and peddler.
At the time the fatal beer mug came
into the life of Professor Steere, he was
recognized as one of the greatest, if nol
the greatest, of living zoologists and
ethnologists. From 1871, when he
made his famous trip for 1,00a miles
up ihe Amazon, up until his second
Amazonian .institution for the Smithsonian institution in hjoo, when he
discovered a new race of people, he
was constantly called upon to lead new0
expeditions.
Unfortunately for himself, and the
world of science, Professor Steere had
become an active temperance worker
years before tbis, and in spite of the
protestations and warnings of those
friends who knew what enmity his
active campaigning against lii'uor
vvould bring against him, he continued
the light in his own university.
Kach year be made fewer friends,
and more enemies. Brother professors
argued with him, and, finally, it was
pointed out by the faculty that the
University of Michigan bad no pla*v
fur Professor Steere to set up as a temperance preacher. He was ihcre to
tench zoology and ethnology, and he
would draw his salary as .such.
But Professor Steere was, not a man
to be brow-beaten ur threatened, lie
became more and more enthusiastic in
bis hitler wur against liinior in the
university town.    No sooner would lie! an
Silver Production iu Mexico.
Mexican government reports show
that more silver was producedin Mexico
during the fiscal year 1903-4 (ban vvas
produced in the United Slates. The
value of the silver exported by Mexico
during the year vvas $78,987,891, as
declared at the custom houses, divided
;ts follows, the figures being taken from
the Mexican Investor:
In bar silyer $45,788,106
In Mexican coin   >s.f>35,595
In other forms  14,564,189
Total 1903-4.. $78,987,891
The amount, of silver coined at the
three mints and put into home circulation, aparl from the coinage exported.
was $22,025,450. Tbis amount added
to sxports, bring's Mexico's total silver
production for the yearto|$ioi,013,341
making Mexico the greatest producer
of silver in ihe world.

Steere works hard for his meagre living, he would nol aceeptmid by sacrificing them.

used to narrate incidents of his early
life as a clerk in a dry goods store of
I.eitersburg, Md. Willi one of these
incidents, as a parable, Mr. Loiter
would often illustrate some point he
wished to make.
"I>e frugal and careful in your dealings," be said to a young business man
one day, "hut never be grasping.
Never try to overreach. Such courses
too often make a man ridiculous, and
give him besides a bad reputation .that
lasts all his life.
"A reputation of Ibis kind was acquired in a moment in our Leitersburg
store by a woman, and she could never
shake it off.
"This woman came into the store
and said to me, in the presence of a
good-sized crowd of people.
" 'How much is this guimpe, young
man ?'
"One dollar a yard, ma'am," said I.
"Hut she was slightly deaf. She
misunderstood.
"'Two dollars a yard?' she exclaimed. 'Well, il ain't worth it. I'll
give you a dollar and a half, and that's
all I'll give.'
"One dollar, nia'aui, is the price, I
repealed in a louder key.
"'Oh,' she said, 'That's much loo
high.    I'll give ye 75 cents',"

D. Hopper, representing the Spokane Falls Gas Liejbt
company, against Andrew Hackett,
involving 2,500 acres of coal land,,
was dismissed by Judge Belt, it having been settled out of court, says the
Spokesman-Keview. Mr. Hopper
brought suit on the ground that Hackett, who is a prospector, had agreed
to locate the Gas company on 2,5^0
acres of coal land in East Kootenay,
and that he had failed to keep his
contract. It appeared that after locating the land, Hackett disposed of
it to a third party. ,.,
None of the parties to the suit will
discuss the terms of settlement, but it
is understood s that Hackett cotnpro
mised by locating Mr. Hopper on an
other 2,500 acres near where the first
locations were made.

Accidents I Sickness
A Husband Badly Treated.
lo the district court of Lamar county
W. Strickland has instituted suit lor
divorce from his wife on the ground of
cruel treatment. In- his petition Mr.
Strickland relates experiencesthal force
tears to the eyes of every sympathetic
husband. lie declares that his
spouse is morose, cruel and insulting
That many times when he would go
home from his daily toil hoping lhat his
s]Wu^e_j£iMA_j*ie^^^
wreathed in smiles his joy would be
turned to grief by finding his wife a
raging torrent of temper. She would
rage like a hungry hyena in the sight
of raw beef; her eyes would snap like a
turtle's, and she'd call him a nasty
stinking nothing. Furthermore in
order lo turn his life into a hell, mentally and bodily, she would sprinkle his
underclothes with red pepper, and also
fill the bed upon which he slept with
the same calorific vegetable. When
the weather vvas real cold she would
dash a bucket of cold water on him at
every opportunity.
Hut worse than all, one night when
he had to work late, she erected a
ghost in the yard oul of bed sheets lo
scare him. When he went into his
yard about 11 o'clock he vvas so frightened at the ghost that be lied in terror,
ran inlo a creek nearby, and came near
being drowned. All this time bis wife
vvas standing iu the door clapping her
bauds for joy and shouting, "run little
devil, big devil will gel you."
As we write this a number of leading
men are holding a meeting ut Dallas
with the object of devising ways and
means to crush the divorce evil. Ik-
fore going too far in their work of perpetuating human misery they should
read the tale of woe of this injured husband. To cut oil" his way of escape
would be a work of cruelty that would
fill the heart of any man with remorse.

Death of Poabodyisin
The sovereign will of the people in
the State of Colorado has dethroned
James H. Peabody, says Ihe Miners'
Magazine' The peaceable, silent
weapon—the ballot—has hurled this
official 'degenerate from public life.
In two months more, the executive
chair of the State, which he has disgraced by his polluted presence, will
know him no more. The corporate
tool has met. his Waterloo, and the
very name of Peabody will only be remembered by the great mass of people
with loathing and contempt.
That he has served the corporate in-1
terests of the State with a loyal and unswerving fidelity, no one will attempt
to deny, but now that he has been
stripped of official power and authority,
that he has been relegated to the political junk pile, there are few even
among the masters whom he served tis
a truckling tool, ','so poor as to do him
reverence." The corporations nominated him in the convention, entertaining the belief that the power of money
.would conquer, and that wilh two
years more, of the Peabody reign, the
laboring class, through bayonet rule,
would surrender the last vestige of their
spirit of indepei'denee and kneel as abject slaves at the feet of despotic
tyrants.
The result on the Sth of November
demonstrated that military ruLe,Jsr not
yet welcomed by tbe people of the State
of Colorado.
Eighteen months of war waged
against the Western Federation of
Miners and the United Mine Workers
jjLAiiiericaj-puIlii'ig-up-.aii.indebtvHluesS'
against the State of more than one
million dollars, touched a sensitive
chord in the hearts of the taxpayers,
and the war cry of Gen. Hell in his
military delirium: "To hell wilh the
taxpayer," doomed the corporate com-
binatfbn of official vassals to the political cemetery.
The people of the Slate hy their ballots have served notice upon the corporations that the murder cf constitutional law to attain their unholy ends
will not be tolerated in the Cenfennial
State.
A Jefferson Anecdote.
Joseph Jefferson once told a friend
that during his long stage career he
had never heen associated wilh any one
showing undue familiarity with him
save one individual, a man named Bag-
ley, who some years ago was property
man in the comedian's company.
This Bagley annoyed Mr. Jefferson
very much by his somewhat ofiensivs
manners, but, owing to the valuable
services rendered by him,,Mr. Jefferson
had always been loath to take measures
more severe thau a reprimand. But
finally the familiarity of the property
man increased to an extent impossible
to endure, so he vvas summarily discharged. The dismissal occurred just j
befoe the opening of Mr. Jeflerson's;
engagement one year in Baltimore.
That night'Bagley got exceedingly
drunk. Paving his way into the theater, he repaired to the gallery, there
to see bis old employer enact Rip Van
Winkle,
The'ang'ry Gretchen had just driven
poor, destilute Rip from the cottage,
when Rip turns, and wilh a world of
pathos, asks: "Den 1 Iiaf no interest
in der house?" The theater vvas deathly
still, the audience half in tears, when
Bagley's cracked voice was heard in
response:
"Only So per cent, Joe, old boy, only
80 per cent!''

Terrible Colorado
The reign of terror in Colorado is
not ended. Peabody, the military
governor, who was defeated by the
democratic candidate, says he will not
vacate the gubernatorial chair, and he
has tho support of all the big mine
owners. The election is to be contested and the probabilities are thut much
blood will be spilled before order is restored. The greatest outrages known
lo a republic were commilled by Peabody and his military tyrant Sherman
Bell lust Spring, Miners and men
who sympathized with them were deported nnd do-tens of laborers were shot
down like dogs. The ll^ht is un again
and the indications are that Colorado
f will have to pa** through a bloody civil
war before the tyrant is dethroned.
