A Tralnod Company That Goes
Rat-Huutlag Hvory Night,
llotr His Watchman of Carpet Faetor7
Gathered Toirolher it Mletit Arnij
of Fellnoi IIundrcMla or llata
Killed In a Few Momenta.
Thoro is a big carpet factory at tho
foot of West Forty-third trcot, says tho
Now York Sun. Tho firm has plonty of
brains to know what it needs, and
plenty of monoy to procure it. But thoro
is ono thing tho mombors. of tho firm
can't do in splto of all their brains and
monoy. Tlioy can't keop rats out of
thoir wool, and their falluro in this re
spect costs thorn many thousands of dol
lars. Thoy havo two big storehouses,
that woro built with an oyo to protec
tion against rats. Tho foundations run
down many fcot, tbo floors aro ot solid
cemont, and tho walls aro of brick. Tho
valuo of tho wool stored in thcso two
buildings is sometimes as much as
31,000,000. Much of it Is tho finest that
can bo got. Tho rats don't know ono
kind from another, perhaps, but it near
ly always happens that as much ot thts
selected wool Is ruined ovory night as
of tho ohoapor kind.
Whon thick walls and many watch
men failod to dotcat tho rats It was do
cldod to soo what an army of cats would
do. Cats woro invited to tho factory
yard by moans of many pounds of fresh
meat sot out as froo lunch ovory day.
Tho invitation soon became known toall
tho cats in tho neighborhood. Thoy all
responded, but tho firm soon dlscovorod
that thoy needed training, for tho mo
rnont tho lunch was ovor thoy trotted
domuroly away, and woro soon no more
until tho noxt day. Tho watchman who
Is on duty at night began making
frionds of thorn, and protty soon ho was
at llborty to approach any of them with
out fear ot gottlng scratched or of
frtghtoning them away. Whon this
stago was reached, tho big doors ot tho
factory yard woro closod ono day and
tho cats woro prihonors. Thoy didn't
Uko it very much, but thoir embarrass
ment disappeared under tho tondor
trcatmont of tho watchman, and thoy
soon becanio reconciled to tho situation.
It Is necessary for tho watchman to
mako a tour of all tho buildings at short
intervals during tho night, nnd tho ob
ject was to got tho cats to soarch tho
buildings boforo ho ontorod and fright
died tho rodents by hls.troad. It didn't
tako much practice boforo tbo cats un
derstood that a rapid journoy through
tho buildings at night was pretty suro
to result In an ontertalnlng scrap with
Botna big rat, and as tho timo for tho
journey was about tho tlmo wbon'thoy
wero roady for somotbing moro to oat,
thoy ontorod into tho thing with groat
spirit.' Then It happonod that as soon
as night carao and tho many hundreds
of ojnploycs had trooped out and tho
watchman began rigging up his lantern
for tho nlgh's vigil thp oats would
gathor about him in a groat aw arm.
mowing nnd jumping up eagerly. At
i ""!, ftr ibout two hundrod
cats on duty In tho factory, and It is a
plcturobquo thing to boo tho watchman
start from tho ofllco door and Btrldo
down into tho hlauk cavern of tho yard
with tho cats streaming out bohind him
llko tho outstretched tall of a korso,
thoso nearest him jumping about hla
legs and rubbing their bodies purrlngly
against him. When tho watchman
roaches tho door leading into tho first
factory and begins fumbling with his
ring of koys tho cats surround him, and
tho moment tho door swings hack thoy
burst into tho building llko a groat wavo
that has burst Its dam, and run ovor tho
wholo building as nolsolossly and swift
ly as water runs. Tho watchman stands
below In tho doorwoy awaiting them.
Occasionally ho hoars a sudden rush, a
fow sharp gr.iwls. a frlghtonod squeak
or two, and thon ho knows that tho cats
have found a victim.
It somotlmes happens that a rat
weighing as much as flvo pounds Is
klllod. Of courso ono cat couldn't
mastor a big follow llko this, and his
death proves that tho cats aro on good
terms, and that thoy stick togotbor In a
fight. Thcso big follows aro dock rats
who como up from tho water In search
of a change of food. Whon a cat runs a
rat Into a holo tho othor cats sproad out
llko sontlnols nnd guard all tho pass
sages leading from It. Thon tho watoh
man cither turns tho balo over or pokes
tho rat out with astiok.and thomomont
ho makes a break for llborty, that mo
ment ho is gobblod up.
Hut in splto of all this vigilanco and
caro, o cry morning tho workmon find
wool sproad ovor tho floor that has beon
torn from tho bales by tho rats, and that
muoh Is draggod out of tho building
thoro can bo no doubt. It may bo that
in tlmo tho cats will succeed In killing
all tbo rats or in frlghtonlng thom oif.
As It Is, many oro killed, buttholrplacos
socm to bo takon by otbors.
Just now tho watchman Is grlovlng
ovor tho loss of ono big- cat that was a
mighty kllior of rats, und usually led
tho chargo against tho very big follows.
Ho was troublod with fioas, and tbo
watchman, to rollovo him of them,
sprlnklod him with flea powdor. Tbo
cat didn't llko to bo In a sollod stato,
and so romovod tho powdor In tho way
usual to cats, and diod.
