Into traps and would be to the mice
what a decoy Is to a Hock of ilucus, or
a looking gluss to a tiger. After tills
suggestion, which Is not untrue to na

thut sounds out of kilter to a critic's
ears would also drive mice from tho
house. If the Truth writer lind even ac

of music he would never have made that

when listening to music it has been
observed that the playing of a piano,
even the tutu-tum of a beginner learn
ing his first tune, will cause mice of
the common llouse variety to run up

causing It to rattle In a way fit to dis
turb the most earnest student. One
night half a dozen persons were gath
ered In the parlor of an Adirondack
home, listening to a, skilled player,
who, as a woodsman said, "could make
a planner talk," when It was observed
that the mice were acting in an un
usual manner. The ordinary conduct
of mice when they hear piano music
is to merely rattle the plaster, but on
this night they squeaked and squealed
and rattled the plaster as they never
done before. The rush of the rodents
