health service testtlts from the ap
pearance of the plague In Mexican

f Bats can be destroyed by trap
ping, by poisoning, and by using cats
and dogs. To Insure the success of
these measures It Is necessary to cur
tall the rat food supply by properly
disposing of garbage and table refuse,
and by preventing rats from gaining
access to foods.
Illghl.vsuwuvil nrtlcles, such as
ebeise, and toasted bacon, will at
tract rats more quickly than will food
without odor; but the idea that a rat
can be enticed Into n trap bj the employment of a bait mote appetizing to
