SQUIRRELS AND GOFHERS.

We have been requested by sev
eral correspondents to give them
Information of the use of bi-sulphid
of carbon in the destruction of
ground squirrels and gophers-.
Professor E. Hilgard recently pub
lished a very satisfactory paper on
this subjeot in the State University
Bulletin, from which we make tbe
Two years ago, iv a leotureon the
phylloxera question, I suggested
tbat tbe same substance which
proves so successful against that
insect, as well as against the rats of
Paris and other cities, might be
successfully used against tbe Cali
fornia squirrel also. I could uot, at
the time, follow up the suggestion
by experiment. The knowledge I
have since acquired, both of the
habit* ot the squirrel and of the
Importance of tbe problem, has led
me of late to test tbe applicability
of the " 81-sulpburet of Carbon"
as a squirrel exterminator; and the
success attained has been so satis
factory that it seems proper to
bring the matter to publio notice.
Tha bi-eulchuret(or more proper
ly bi-sulphid) of carbon Is obtained
by passing vapor of sulphur over
red-hot charcoal contained in an
earthenware or cast iron rstort;
thus burning thecharcsal in vapor
instead of air. Tbe vapor form ed is
very heavy and volatile, and re
quires very effectual arrangements
for condensation. When pure, it
farms a colorless liquid, of an aro
matio and somewhat peppery odor,
which is not disagreeable, and pro
ducts somewhat the effects of chlo
roform on the human subject, but
acts as quick as poison when In
haled by small animals. Ordina
rily, however, It is contaminated
with other sulphur compounds,
which give it the offensive odor of
rotten eggs and onions; and iv
this oonditiou it is poisonous when
inhaled, not only to animals but
also to man, Tbe very offensive
naes of its vapor, however, is an ex
cellent safeguard against accidents
from poisoning. It is highly in
flammable, aud its vapor, when
mixed with air, explodes, like tbat
of petroleum spirit or alcohol.
Since it boils but a little above the
temperature of tbe band, It evapor
ates very rapidly when poured on
It, producing a feeling of intense
cold; when poured on damp earth,
Ibe latter soou freezes aud becomes
covered with hoar-frost. The vapor
ho formed Is three times heavier
than air, aud flows down visibly,
like water, from tbe mouth of an
open vessel containing the liquid.
Of course it will flow down into
a squirrel hole iv thesame manner,
without tbe aid of a bellows; es
pecially if introduced at tbe higher
end of tbe burrow. After a few
minutes, the odor usually makes
its appearance at some of the other
outlets; in one case it became sen
sible at a hole twenty-five feet from
that into which it was introduced,
in the course of five minutes. It is
curious that in no case have I
known a squirrel to run out of the
holes before the gas; when it meets
it face to face In a run, death seems
to be almost instantaneous. But iv
most eases the animals seem to re
tire to tbeir nests and die there in
The mode of proceeding is simply
this: Select oue or two of tbe
freshest holes iv a burrow, intro
duce Into it as deep down as you
can reach, a wide mouthed ounce
vial full of the liquid, upset tbe
vial, and withdraw it. It is best
after this to wait a few minutes to
Ist the outer air push the heavy va
por before it into the burrow, until
tbe odor appears at tbe other out
lets. But this is not strictly neces
sary, and If the operator is hurried
tbe holes may all be closed at once,
with earth, which need not be
rammed; tbe ouly object being to
keep the gas in, and to see if any
of th* inmates dig out afterwards.
Of course it may happen tbat boles
supposed to belong to one burrow
do uot communicate, so that the in
mates of oue remain unscathed. A
little experience soon teaches the
right measure, so that not more
than oue in a hundred will be open
ed again, unless from without.
In closing the holes It should be
kept iv mind tbat the liquid poured
into the burrow must not be cov
ered up by the earth put into the
opening. Either put it iv far
enough to be out of reach of the
loose earth put into the opening,
or else use a sod, inverted, or a big
clod, orin stony ground, a slab of
rock. The heel of a boot will in
many cases answer just a well as
the shovel to do all tbat is needed,
vis: to prevent any rapid access of
air to the exterior. Tamping is
Moreover, while the bi-sulphid
oan be used with equal success at
any season, it must be remembered
that, as it is heavier than water, it
must not be used when water Is
standing in the holes; the more as,
under such circumstances, tbe bur
rows are likely to be divided up by
tb* water traps, which would re
strict to that extent the diffusion ot
the poisonous vapor.
It is probable, however, that a
smaller quantity will suffice when
tbe earth is damp than wbeu it is
dry, since iv the latter case the
vapor will to a slight exteut be ab
sorbed by the porous earth. Our
experiments were made before
moisture bad penetrated more than
ten inches into the soil.
Tb* dead animal la thus buried
out of sight in its own burrow,
creates uo stench aud poisons
nothing; its flesh would not be In
jurious even if dug up. No other
Wild or domestic animal runs auy
risk, unless it be tbe gopher. The
hofes retain an offensive odor for
some time, aud remain closed and

Th* bi-sulphid of csrbou has been
■old in this market (pure) at forty
to forty-five cents per pound.
In dealing with gophers, care
should be taken to make it possible
far tb* poisonous vapor to reach
th* animal, by using it at tbe
"•ear" end of the run, where tbe
gopher has gone into the ground,
and not forty or fifty feet off. Any
person knowing the habits of the
Cspber will readily manage this;
nt It is quite easy, In any case, to
drive the animal before one, by a
few drops of the bi-sulphid, placed
io the run at intervals of two or
three yards. When thus " driven
home, ' the gopher promptly sur
renders to a thimbleful of the
liquid dropped into its hole; and
whenever one is seen at work, its
operations may be Instantly stop

AN OPEN LETTER—IT SPEAKS
Rockpokt, Mass., April 2, 13?7.
Mit. Eihioh:—Having read in your pa
per tepoi is ol tho remurkable cures ol ca
tarrh, 1 am induced to tell " what I know
about catarrh," and 1 fancy the "snuff"
and "inhaling tube" makers (mere dol
lar grabbers) would be glad if tbey could
eniLlazon a eimilur cure iv the papers.
For 20 years 1 sullered with catarrh. The
vasal passages beeamecompletelyclosed.
"Snuti," '-dust," "ashes," "inhaling
tubes," and "sticks" wouldn't work,
though at Intervals I would snift up the
so-called catarrh snuff, until I became a
valuable tester for such medicines. I
gradually trow wors;-, aud no one can
know how much 1 suffered or what a
miserable being I was. My head ached
over my eyes until 1 was confined to my
bed for many successive days, suffering
the most iutensc pain, which at one time
lasted continuously for 108 hours. All
sense of smell and taste sight aud
heuriug impaired, body shrunken
and weakened nervous system shat
tered and constitution brokeu, audi was
hawkiug and spitting seven-eighths ofthe
lime. 1 prayed lor death to relieve me of
my suflering. A favorable uotico in your
paper of Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy in
duced me to purchase a package and use
it with Dr. Pierces Nasal Douche, which
applies the remedy by hydrostatic pres
sure, the only way compatible with com
mon sense. Well, Mr, Editor, it did not
cure me in threo-jourths of a second, nor
in one hour or month, but In less than
eight minutes 1 was relieved, and in
three months eutirely cured, und have
remained so over sixteen months. While
using tbe Catarrh remedy, 1 used Dr.
Pierces Golden Medical Discovery to pu
rity my blood and strengthen my stom
ach. I also kept my liver active and
bowels regular by the use of his Pleasant
Purgative Pellets. If my experience will
induce other sufTerers to seek the same
means of relief, this letter will have an
swered its purpose.
Yours iruly, S. D. UEMICK.

Where the skin Is snllow and covered
