"Is It not dangerous to catch them ?''
"Yes, unless you know how. The
way I do Is to go into a room In the
dark and waft for them to come out.
They must come out to get food and
water. I walt until they get near my

lantern, clze them it my (ands and
put theuit in a bag, or else I plek them
up with my tongs. Of course I got to

are worth about eleven cents each for a

rats unless we ci sell them, and ias

Tle conductor told him that there

The brakeman couldn't remember

About thirty miles west of Detroit
the Californian caught sight of a lake
afar off, and going out on the platform

"No; we are as near as we shall go." I
