Knows No Method to
Extermination of the mongoose is
Impossible as no solution has ever
been offered that has proved a suc
cess, declares W. C. Henderson, act
ing chief of the Bureau of Biological
Survey of the United States depart
ment of agriculture, In a letter to
Bruce Cartwright, secretary of the
Fish and Game Association, accord
ing to Tho Honolulu Advertissr.
The mongoose is more destructive
than tho rat and do more harm to
crops than any bird known, Hender
Tho letter follows:
Becelpt Is acknowledged of your
letter of November 3, 1921, contain
ing seven rather comprehensive ques
tions In regard to the mongoose. It
Is impracticable, in the limits of a
brief letter, to answer these questions
satisfactorily, in fact, tho answers to
some of them involve problems which
have not yet been worked out. As
you are doubtless aware the mon
goose has Been the subject of volumi
nous official reports by tho govern
ment of Jamaica and, I believe, has
also been the subject of inquiry in
Hawaii. Following tho brief answers ,
to tho questions on which we have .
daUr at hand: !
1. Habits. The mongoose belongs ,
to a family peculiar to the Old World ,
and is represented by several general
and a number of species which occur
In India and Africa. The species
which has proved most destructive In
the West Indies and in Hawaii was
originally a native of India. Its habits
I ofi nlitnllv rnirootrtn 1 oil lirtlicrli iindnf
certain circumstances, the animals ,
climb low trees and bushes and may ;
I to this very limited extent be con
sidered arboreal, it is uname to ;
reach many rats or the Black species
(rattus rattus), which are expert i
climbers. Its rood consists of small
animals and birds, but under certain
circumstances, It wll! subsist to some
extent, on vegetable rood. On ac
count of Its destructlveness to rats
It was introduced In Jamaica and oth
er West India islands and in Hawaii
to rid Use cane field:! of these pests.
It has not, however, by any means
confined its attention to rats, and
when these are scarce or when other
food is available, it does not hesitate
to prey on other small animals or on
poultry, game, or on native ground
On this account it is considered one
ot the worst pests which can be In
troduced Into any country, and Its Im
portation into the United States, or
Its shipment from one state to an
other has been prohibiten by act of
In its native habitat little-known
enemies serve to limit its numbers,
but when introduced into new locali
ties, particularly on islands, it is al
most entirely free from the enemies
which held it in check in its original
home, and its rapidly increasing num
bers become a menace to small game

1st day of
and ground-lnhabltatlng wild llfo in
Its economic value lies in Its des
truction of rats, but Its value for this
purpose Is more than counter balanc
ed by Its destruction of useful species
2. Extermination. No successful
means of extermination of the mon
goose have thus far been devised.
3. Diseases. No disease, so far as
we are aware, exists that is fatal to
the mongoose and rats that will not
spread to stock, poultry, etc.
4. Increase of Males. It has been
suggested that the preponderance of
males over females of rabbits and
rats be secured by killing the females
only, with a view to bringing about
in this way tho extermination of tho
species, but we do not believe that
nny such plan is likely to be practic
able or really effective in checking
the numbers of these animals or of
tho mongoose. The small number of
females that could be killed would
probably have little effect in over
coming the natural tendency to equal
ize the number of males and females.
G. Proportion of Sexes. See No. -1.
6. Enemies. Any animal or bird
of prey that might feed on the mon
goose would undoubtedly feed on poul
try and games birds and thus offset
any benefit they might occasion in
destroying tho mongoose.
7. Benefits to Agriculture. Under
ordinary circumstances there seems
to bo no question that game birds are
more beneficial to agriculture than
the mongoose. The latter is very de
structive and almost its only benefi
cial trait is its destruction of rats,
whereas game birds are not only
valuable in destroying Insects, but in
furnishing recreation and food.
In order to answer your question
as to whether rats are more harmrul
to sugar cane and other agricultural
products than the insects which form
the principal diet of game birds, such
as the California Valley Quail, it
would be necessary to collect consid
erable data, not at present available,
as to the amount or damage done by
rats in the sugar cane fields and also
as to the kinds or Insects eaten by tho
introduced game birds In Hawaii.
Resumption of Trade

SYDNEY, N. S. W., Dec. G (Asso
ciated Press Mail) The government

Famous Ancient Pine I
Tree o t Japan Dies
TQKYO, Nov. 0 (Associated
Press Mail) The old pine tree of Ka
rasakl, on the shore of Lake BfVa,
famous in song and legend and visit
ed by thousands of pilgrims each year
as one or the eight" beautirul scenes
or Lake Biwa, is dead, tho Japan Ad
vertiser says. The ancient pine wa3
said to be 1,200 years old, living from
tho time of the Nara Epoch until It
withered and died this year.
A ceremony was held last Sunday
on the shores or tho lake "to transfer
the spirit" of the pine into a younger
tree that will succeed to tho honor
and near-worship which had been
bestowed on tho "Karasaki no mat
su." The successor is only 300 years
old and is said to have sprung from
seed cast by the old tree. The solemn
ceremony was held under the direc
tion of Priest Hlyosht before more
than 100 of the highest dignitaries of
Shiga prefecture. Religious music,
the weird music of ancient ilute and
drum was played while the priest
transferred the spirit.
The ancient pine had been of the
low-spreading variety often seen in
Japan. Although only 30 feet high,
its branched covered a span of 163
Teet from east to west and 151 feet
from north to south, shading an area
ot 4200 square Teet.
The new tree is 20 reet high" with
a' trunk circumference or 11 reet, 5
Inches. The area covered by Its
brandies Is only 1500 square feet, but
the tree is only a youngster and has
850 years in which to reach tho dlmen
slons or the ancient pine or Karasaki
that had just passed.
