laid out tile road, a few weeks ayo. It
is down in the irriyation district, 100
miles west of San Antonio, and will
make more valuable a lot of land.
He will take his launly there, in May.
As lie will have no slouylis to cross,

The rats in New Mexico are quite
dlllcrcnt to those I have been used to.
both in sie and color. We have two
distinct kind, the pack rat and the
kangaroo rat. The pack rat is a blue
rat. not as large as our common gray
rat. He is noted for his industry and
skill. His great ambition is to keep
things in a neat and orderly condition
mound where be stays.
When Mr. Prince, formerly a Pemi
scovian, hut now a New Meican. came
to this country, he was living in two
tents, one lie used principally to store
away things. This one the rats look
ed upon as being theirs and naturally
wished to collect as much as possible
to stoie away in their home. Time
and again Mr. Prince would yet up in
the morning to lind a part of his wear
ing apperal missing and upon dilli
yently seaivhiny would lind it in the
other tent, partly covered up with
nails and chips, etc., all arranged in
a neat pile. At lirst he hail curious
feelings about leaviny his shoes and
socks and hat and wood in one tent
and the next morniuy lindiny them in
another tent. I don't believe he would
have stayed here long if some of
his neighbors hud not told him it was
They got into my house, when I was
away, then into the bed and took out
some of tlic cotton from the mattress
and put in cactus in its stead. Now,
any one sleeping on a bed of cactus,
made by a rat. would not have a very
tender feeling for them.
As to the kangaroo rat. I haven't
anything in particular against him
He is usually found in the field among
the shocks ol bidder and other places
where lie is not likely to be molested.
He is not as large as the pack rat, and
is of a brown color. He has short
forelegs and lony hindlegs. They are
built like a kangaroo, whence came
tloir name. They have pouches in
which they carry their young until
they are quite large. 1 have only
seen a few, and then not very distinct
ly. The first one I saw I thought I
would catch and examine, but he
thought differently. After running
him in a clear Held for some distance
I lost sight of him. 1 know nothing
