A WONDERFUL COLLECTION
OF RAT TRAPS
A writer In tho current Issue of
Farm and Fircsldo tells about the
Importance of killing rats, which, as
overybedy knows, aro carriers and
distributors of germs injurious to
j human beings. Ho tolls about visit
j lng a United States government bu-
ireuu chief's ofllco In Washington in
which Is stored n great collection of
rat traps made by various Inventors.
Following Is an extract:
"Thero wore rat traps of wire, of
wood, of glass ot copper, of tin; rat
traps that looked like self binders,
rat traps that looked like telescopes.
rat traps that looked like diving
bells, and one that looked liko a cat
apult such as tho ancients used to
batter down tho wnlls of tho besieg
ed city. Tho biggest rat trap thoro
could easily havo been used to catch
a baby elephant, and tho smallest
could almost havo been carried
around In a thlmblo. Tho biggest
ono, which was tho catapult affair
wound up with a key and was oper
ated by a hugo spring. Tho theory"
on which It oporatod was that when
ia rat touched off tho trigger ho turn
tho thing looso, and a big swinging
cast Iron arm landed on his head,
killed him Instantly and Incidental
ly pitched hire into tho mlddlo ot
next week. Tho exports In chargo
said that thcro was only ono trou
blo with this trap, and that was that
Its efficacy deponded upon securing
tho entlro co-operation ot tho rat.
A rat endowod with tho Intellect,
say ot Herbert Spencer could prob
ably have succeeded by diligent an
H plication In gottlng himself killed by
I th0 contraption. No rat that was
less than an Intellectual marvel, and
that in addition was not positively
bent on suicide, could possibly havo
been Injured by the contrivance."

MIGHT RAI8E TEN TIME8
A8 MUCH CORN A8 WE DO
In tho current lsuo ot Farm and
Firosldo a contributor writes about
tho Ideal corn crop that Is, If every
producer worked scientifically and
took advantago of every opportunity
After telling about Jerry Moore, tho
flftcenryear-old Southern boy who
won a prize for raising about 225
bushels to the acre, tho author goes
on to say:
"Did you over tako the troublo to
flguro out with pencil and paper Just
what a corn crop should bo7
"If tho hills aro three and a half
feet apart, thero would be (In round
numbers) 3,500 of them. Each hill I
should havo threo stalks, and each I
stalk throo cars. Again In round I
numbers, this would glvo 30,000 ears I
to each aero of land. Now, a mod- B
erato car ot dent corn weighs ten I
ounces. Thus we havo 300,000 ounc- I
os or 18,760 pounds of corn. It takes I
about seventy poundB of dried corn I
on the cob to mako a bushel. The I
yield, thoreforo should bo 270 bush I
els of corn per acre. H
"What does this make you think I
of your yield of twenty-seven bush- I
els per acre? How do you like to -mH
think that yon raise only one kern
el where you should have ten? Does
not this little problem In arithmetic
make you alt up and think? Do you
wait to believe that fifteen-year-old
Jerry Mooro can do what you can
not? I don't."
