The prairie dogs will now have to retire to the innermost recess es of their holes and prepare to hibernate until spring. Prof. D. E. Lantz ol the Agricultural col lege and Representative Steve Cave of Haskell county have an nounced that during the remain der of the winter they will carry on a war for the extermination of the prairie dog race. They have discovered an improved strychnine poison which it is as serted, the prairie dogs will go miles to find and eat, and it is proposed to scatter it thoroughly over the section of the state pre empted by the dogs. Prof. Lantz who has had charge of the work of finding a suitable poison has issued the following aeport: During the past four months I have made numerous experi ments with various gases and poisons for the purpose of find ing the most effective and cheap est method of destroying prairie dogs. "The net result of the experi ments, thus far, is that we have found nothing more effective than carbon bisulphide or cheaper than strychnine poison. This bulletin is intended to place be fore the people of Kansas the re sults of our experience in using some cheaper combinations of these old remedies in time to se cure some decided progress in the work of extermination during the remaining winter months, when the conditions are most favorable for the work. In the meantime it is our intention to continue the experiments, par ticularly with the object of find ing some contagious disease to complete the work of destruction. "A tablespoonf ul of carbon bi sulphide placed upon some ab sorbent material, as cotton, dry horse manure, or a piece of corn cob, and rolled down the prairie dog burrows is effective in kill ing the animals. It is best im mediately to cover the hole with a sod and stamp down firmly. "I found by experiment that four parts of gasoline mixed with one part of carbon bisulphide is about as effective as the carbon bisulpide alone and not nearly as expensive. The mixture is used in the same manner as carbon bi sulphide alone, but a somewhat larger dose is needed. "Strychnine poison, Formula No. 1. Dissolve one and a half ounces of strychnine sulphate in a quart of hot water. Add a quart of syrup molasses, sor ghum or thick sugar and water and a teaspoonf ul of oil of anise. Thoroughly heat and mix the liquid. While hot pour it over a bushel of clean wheat and mix completely. Then stir in two or more pounds of fine corn meal. The quality of corn meal needed will depend upon the amount of extra moisture present. There should be enough to wet every grain of the wheat and no more. Care should be taken that there is no leakage from the vessel in which the wheat is mixed. "Let the poisoned grain stand over night, and distribute it in the early morning of a bright day. Use a tablespoonful of the wheat to each hole occupied by prairie dogs, putting it near the mouth of the burrow in two or three little bunches. Do not put out the poison in very cold or stormy weather. It will keep for a considerable time, and is much more effective after a cold period, as the animals are then hungry and eat the grain readily. A bushel of wheat should poi son 1,000 to 1,200 holes. "An excellent substitute for the oil of anise in the above form ula can be made by soaking two ounces of green coffee berries in the whites of three eggs. Let this stand for about twelve hours and use the liquid instead of anise oil. "Form ula No. 2 Through the efforts of Representative S. E. Cave of Lockport, Kan., the col lege has purchased the state right to use a preparation patent ed by D. W. Staples of Quanah, Tex. I have tested it in the field and have found it entirely satis factory. The inventor claims for it that it has the advantage of being effective at any season. The preparation of strych nine given in formula No. 2 is protected by letters patent and cannot be used outside of Kan sas without securing the right from the inventor. We have pur chased the right to its use for all the citizens of the state. As this bulletin circulates outside of Kan sas, the formula is not here giv en, but it will be sent to any resident of Kansas upon applica tion. "Section 1 of the law authorizes townships, under some restric tions, to levy money and to pur chase poison to destroy prairie dogs. Section 4 makes it the duty of the Agricultural college to furnish the remedy recom mended by it to townships that comply with the provisions' of section 1. Accordingly, this sta tion will be prepared on January 10,1902, and during three months thereafter, to furnish, at actual cost of materials, poison prepar ed according to formula No. 2. By buying materials at whole sale, a considerable saying in cost will be made. The poison will be put up in half gallon cans. Each can will hold enough to thoroughly poison a bushel of wheat. This vill be enough for from 1,000 to 1,200 burrows, from 100 to 160 acres, since only occupied holes need be poisoned. Directions for use will accom pany each can. The price will, for the present, be $1.50 per half gallon can, f. o. b., Manhattan. Shipment will be by express or freight and in such quantities as trustees may desire. Money orders in payment should be made payable to Miss Lorena E. Clemons, secretary." EDUCATION AU. An examination for Teachers' cer tificates will be held at the Meade School Building Jan. 25, 1902, be ginning at 8 o'clock a. m.
