Constant Watchfulness Traps, Cats.
Notify Authorities When Rats
Introduction. Tho question of de
strojlng the rat Is nn Important one
In all communities, partlculatly
where plague has been or may again
he epidemic or endemic. This ques
tion Is not only of Importance to the
public officials charged with tho care
of the public health, but also Is of
great Importance to the whole com
munity In an economic way. Lnntz
(Farmers Uullotln, No. 297, U. S. De
partment of Agriculture) Btntcs that
the rat I responsible for tho destruc
tion of many millions of dollars'
worth of property annually In the
United States. Ho considers the rat
to he the cnuso of moro money lews
than all other mammals together.
In this community, besides this lit'
He recognized economic reason for n
wnr against tho rat, the question of
tho role of tho animal In the dissem
ination of bubonic plnguo Is of the
first Importance. It Is nn established
fact that the rat Is the carrier, In tho
vast majority of cases, of the disease
from one community to another and,
working In conjunction with tlit rat
flea, Is the means of perpetuating the
disease In a given community.
lowing to tho cosmopolitan dlstil-
butlon of tho rnt It Is of llttlo usa to
try to exterminate It In any given
locality, if such a thing were possible,
unless the rc-lntrpductton of tho spe
cies wore prevented." This being the
caso the futility' ofattcmptlnV to rid
community of rats when tho next
ship may Introduce A dozen or moro
Individuals Is obvious, Kvcn If com
plete extermination of tho species Is
not nlmcd'at it Ii Important that the
Uso of rnt guards' oii all lints from
foreign ships nnd other quarantine
precautions bo Insisted oil, nof'nlono
to prevent tho Ingres of normal rals
to nutl to the breeders, but, far moro
liiiortnnt, to prevent tho entrance
Into the community of rats which
may bo Infected with plague. Sup
posing Hint this exclusion of rats
could be arranged for (and on M
tslnnd such n thing Is possible If nnj
where), what chance is thero of the
complete extermination of the rnt
nnd how should this end be sought?
Hefore beginning this discussion It
Iswoll to hear In mind n few biolog
ical facts about the rat, particularly
Its reproductive powers. Theso nnl-
mnls havo six to twelve nt n litter
and three to four such litters nro
born each jear. The females begn
to breed nt from three to four months
of nge. A simple calculation will
show that the rate of multiplication
of tho species Is so faBt that only the
most energetic and vrholcsnlo meth
ods of destruction will havo any cf.
reel upon tnclr numbers. '
It seems almost hopeless to expect
that an nnlmul of such tremendous
reproductive power could bo totally
exterminated unless tho cupidity of
man could bo cnllcd Into plnj'. If
rat-skins were ns valuable as those
of the silver fox tho rnt would soon
ho exterminated or condned to arti
ficially controlled brctdlng places. It
seems wclf, therefore, to face tho fact
fact Hint totnl extermination' Is not
within the bounds of possibility. Ex
ception will at once be taken to this
stutemont by some on nccount of tho
widespread .belief that an Infectious
disease le, g., Danish or other virus)
can bo expected to utterly extermi
nate a species, This belief Is not In
rfecord with whatwo know of In
fectloui) disease. All Infectious dis
eases are examples of parasitism.
That Is to say the disease Is the by
product of tho ntte'nipt of a mlrfuto
and low form of animal or vegetable
llfo to gain a living by becoming a
paraslto upon a higher form of llfo.
It Is not to bo expected that this re
lationship, when detrimental Ho tho
higher form, will bo established with
out snmo attempt on the' part of tho
living being attached to rosUt tho
Invasion of tlio parasite. Our mod
ern knnwledgo of the''treatment arid
control of Infectious disease rests up
on nn understanding of this mechan
ism of resistance of tho attacked be
ing against the paraslto, It Is 'evi
dent that tho presence of nn Infec
tious disease In a given species of
animal In time leads to an Increased
resistance on tho part of tho Individ
uals of that species to tho causative
agent of tho dlsoaso. This Incroaso
In reslbtanco on tho1 part of tho In
dividuals of tho species attacked Is
met by nn Increased Invading power
nn the part of tlio parasite, hut al
ways tlime is ii tondenc'y to bring
nbout nn equilibrium so that both the
germ nnd the imlmal nro able to con
tinue to exist. Tim. . tendency -I for
- this relatlou of the dUcuse-produilne
parasite and the attacked animal to -
become evidenced by what wa call' a
chronic lnfect0u disease rnthcr than
a lapidly fatal ancction wntch would
he called an acute Infectious dis
ease. It Is probable that this rela
tionship Is' already- partially estab
lished In the case of the rat and the
bacillus of plague, for, although the
disease plague Is usually fatal In tho
tnt, yet a number of.cases of chronic
plague hnve been found In that ani
mal, in man, on the other hand,
plague has no chronic form. For
these reasons It Is not to be expected
Hint we will find an Infectious disease
that will sweep the rat nut of exist
ence I do not mean to sa Hint tho
artificial production of a fatal Infec
tious dlsoaso nmong rats Is not n good
thing, but oniy'wlsh td call nttcntlon
to the fact that extermination Is not
to be looked for froinacli measures.
It must be regarded as a measuro like
the use of poison. 'If plague, to
which the rnt Is markedlv suscept
ible, has not exterminated the spe
cies there Is little hope of finding n
disease which will.-
Total destruction of the rat being
practically Impossible, whut pros
pect Is there or partial destruction?
This can be brought nbout in various
ways. It must not be forgotten Hint
It Is not a simple matter such as
picking loose stones off n road. Bvcry
species of nnlmnls, In the long 'run,
tends to nttnln a numerical equili
brium In a given region This nor
mal number of Individuals of a given
species for n given locality is deter'
mined by a number of factors-, promi
nent nmong which U'the food supply.
This being thocaJc, If a given region
will support 1000 rats and wo kill
S00 nt them, In tho case of such a
prolific nnlmnl, 'the normal number
will be produced In n relatively
short time. Of course It w-o could
kill tho ratsfnBtcr' tlian they could
breed wo would Steadily reduce the
number as long as w keep up tho
process. Bxpcrlence'teaches, howev-
"er, that this cannot be done. In
Kobo tho Japanese killed almost 5,
000,000 rats In' the'eourw of flro
years and at tho and of that tlmo
the animals were ns numerous as
evcrl A moderate' killing of rats
only makes It easier -for tho residue
to mako a living.-
One might reasonably reply that
IPthls Is tho caso the,yholo game of
ral-kllllng Is not worth tho candle,
and In a ccrtnlrt narrow sense this Is
true. This Is not true, however, In
n wide sense, particularly In Hnvvall,
and for this reason. In endctnlc'cen'
tors of plague, such ds Honolulu and
llllo, every dead rat menus a possible
dead plague rat nnd hence a hit of
control of tho disease. Konlhls rea
son nlono It Is worth while' to enu
merate the most efficacious menus for
killing rnts.'bcarliiR In mind that all
means fr6m' a blow with a half

rats can be destroyed In thls'way, hut
the' Chmpnlgn must ho In responsible
hands arid bo Carried out systemati
cally. alt l to he remembered that
much valnablo Information will be
lost If the dead animals are not col
lected and examined by a competent
bacteriologist to determine whether
or not they nro Infected with plnguo.
This applies also to all rats killed by
any means and particularly thoso
found dead. To make the examina
tion of rats'of real valuo the, animals
should be tagged tothbw the locality
where they we're found. If this Is
done and a plague rat 1b 'found. It
will bo posslblo, to concentrate upon
that place and possibly prevent the
formation of a plague focus.
I do not go Into the question nt
merits of different sorts of rat poison
This matter had best bo left to those
In Immediate charge of tho work.
2. Trapping. This Is particular
ly valuable, as all the rats killed can
ho examined. Trapping Is moro ex
pensive than poison, but Is a good
3. Artificially Induced Epidemic,,
Tho widely advertised viruses, of
which Itattlno mid Danny's Virus
may lib taken as samples', are certain
ly able to kill a largo number of
rats. Tho difficulty In their' tisd In
Hawaii is that, like many pathogenic
bacteria, the virus becomes Inactive,
that Is, unable to produce disease In
i"nts, If transported over great dis
tances unless' means are' taken- to
guard the virus from nil external In
fluences, such" as heat, that'-wlll In-
hctlvato It, It niUBt be 'remembered
that these viruses are of the nature
of poisons nml have the -limitations
of poisons. Such 'good accounts aro
given of these viruses that It" might
be worth while to attempt to get n

tion, even if It required a special trip
by a messenger.

that tho greatest Incentive 'to Induce
people to kill rats Is to mako It fin
ancially worth their -while. To this
end It pays to offer a money reward
for all dead mIh tinned over to the
proper nuthlirlllet If public senti
ment Is not ngnlnst it, the lottery

dia that the incidence of plague In n
given village depended to some ex
tent upon the number of rats. For
this reason It has been seriously pro
posed to encourage the keeping of
these nnltntls as n public health
7. Ferrets. The sjstemntlc hun
ting of rats with ferrets Is not a mat
ter that could well ho Incorporated
In n plague campaign. It does, how
ever, present a means of obtaining
the rntB for claiming bounty and so
deserves passing notice.
After nil we must keep constantly
lu mind what wo wish to hell rals
for and nut forget Hint the general
aim o( the campaign niny he much as
sisted in other wnys. Our main ob
ject In killing rats Is to prevent hu
tonic plague. As the rat Is thb car
rier of the disease It should be re
membered that an important meas
ure In the control of the disease Is
to exclude, so far- as possible, rats
from human habitation. Hats fre
quent human habitation for food and
shelter. It seems obvious therefore
that wo should try to make our
dwellings rat-proof and so protect
foods attraetlvo to rats, so that our
houses would no longer oe attractive
to tho animals. This matter Is of
such lniiortnnce to a community In
which plsgue is endemic Hint I would
