GROUND SQUIRRELS
TO BE EXTERMINATED
Government Expert Making In*
vestigation of Rodent Pest
in Stanislaus County
Enormous Damage to Crops in
This State Done by Worth
less Little Animals
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
MODKrfTO, Jan. C. — S. E. Piper of
the biological survey of the United*
States department of agriculture is in
Stanislaus county for the purpose of
making. an exhaustive study of-* the
ground squirrel problem. While Piper
ii incidentally examining the" squirrels
for evidence of bubonic plague his
main object, is to ascertain the most
effective means of exterminating'" the
rodents, whSch annually destroy prod
mis to the value of many thousands of
do! lars.
P:i«fr has been carrying on his work
in Stanislaus for some months and has
made a thorough study of the squir
rels, their habits, their food and the
<»ffect of various poisons. These in
vestigations follow different lines ac
cording to the soil, location, conditions
<.f weather, etc. Nothing is overlooked^
in l!ncl<? Sam's search for a means to
v ipe out effectively this great pest.
ICKFKCTIVE POISOX FORMULA.
In seeking a. remedy tho department
wishes something that will be most ef
tectlve and at the same time economi
cal and the least dangerous to the life
of humans, stock and bird and game
life. a In carving on the experiments
Piper uses a poison made up as fol
lows: •
TakP Hfi pounds of pood, clean, Tvhole bar
i'-y. ttif ounce of strychnia suJiihate, a small
i»-a*p<>iuirnl of saccharine and a pint of me
«liuta thick etarch solution made by boiliujj
a quarter of a cup of gloss fctcxch in a piut
«>f wau-r. Mix tiie strychnia sulphate an«l
lite t-a<>chariJi<» in tlie hot staroh and beat
until tliorouplily miied. Then add slowly to
ice barley, mixing thoroughly, w> that each
UTnel Jxcomes thoroughly coated. Dis
tribute about one teMespoonful near each
burrow. Scatter Flightly. so as to avoid
.:..-\u25a0 r to stork and game. Put on Rood,
bard, riraa rather than on dusty mounds.
A little iwifon scattered along the trails
leadluj: to the sqnlrrel boles Is Tory effective.
Piper is now working in the eastern
}>arl of this county and the full result
<>f his work will be published in pam
j.hlet form by the department of agri
< ulture. The work is under the direc
tion of Dr. A. K. Fisher, in charge of
this work in the biological survey..
Piper tends specimens of the squir
rels killed by him to the marine hospi
tal "Sicials in San Francisco. Thus
far he has not found a squirrel in this
section of Stanislaus with plague
jrermF.
HAWKS, O\\XS AND S.VAKES
Another feature of his work is tho
.juudy of beneficial birds. He says that
hawks, owls and gopher snakes kill
niany youus S'juirVels and gophers and
should be protected instead of killed
;is at present. lie points out that the
few chickons they may steal are small
pay for the great aid they render the
farmer.
In tho irrigated sections the squirrels
do much damage to the banks of irri
gation <anals by burrowing through
and cm using costly breaks and they
dfstroy much grain in the cereal belt.
In carrying on the work of extermina
tion the greatest difficulty encountered
is in jrettinjr the farmers, to work to
gether in killing the squirrels, but it is
hoped that the result of these experi
ments, when published, will arouse the
lan.j owners to concerted action in de
. stroying the squirrels as they have the
Jack rabbits which once traveled in
•droves* over this section-- of the state,
but which are now almost extinct. j

PASSES MANY BOGUS $20
CHECKS NEW YEAR'S EVE
Twenty or More Saloons Cash
Worthless Paper
SEATTLE.. Jan. 6.-One of the most
generous spenders on New Year's eve
was a man who made the rounds of 20
or more saloons, paying his bill in each
with a $20 check on the Union sav
ings and trust company. • The checks,
;is the bar tenders could see, were au
thenticated by an anti-fraud stamp
-Not to accede $20." The peculiar
spelling was not noticed until the
•\u25a0hecks reached the banks. So far as
known the swindler got $400, but some
of the victims are thought to have said
nothing, being ashamed of their
credulity. The checks were ; signed

STOCKTON, Jan. 6.— The sixteenth j
annual convention of the Theta Chi
high school fraternity will be held in

gates having arrived today, to attend
the preliminary social functions in

will be presided over by Grand Presi
dent Oliver of Berkeley chapter.
Lois Newton of this city, one of the
organizers of ' the local chapter, will
undoubtedly be elected grand president
to succeed Oliver.
The principal question to be conr
sidered is the position the fraternity
will take in regard to the anti-frat
law.
"We have lived up to all the re
quirements of tho law,** said ' Newton.
"In fact, the Omega Nu and Lambda
Theti Phi sororities and - the . Gatna
Etta Kappa fraternity have done like
wise. They have pledged members,
but have held no initiations."
Tonight the Omega Nus and Lamb
das will give a dance at State hall
in the State Hospital auditorium in
honor of the delegates. Tomorrow
evening Zeta Chis will give a dancing
party. at Masonic hall.
The local chapter will banquet the
delegates Saturday night. No liquor^
will «be served at the banquet, the'
constitution of the fraternitj' prohib
iting the use of intoxicants at any
function.
The Theta Chi fraternity is _22
years old. Stockton chapter has been
organied five years, the membership

MOTHER TELLS HOW
CUTICURA CURED BOTH,
"When my bor was six years old, li€» I
staff ered terribly wi th eczema. He could 1
neither sit still nor lie quietly in bed,'
for the itching was dreadful. Ho would j
irritate spots by scratching -with.his>i
naflo and that only made them worse. » A. ]
doctor treated him and we tried almost; j
everything, but the eczema seemed toi
spread. It started in a small place on j
the lower extremities and spread for two |
years until it very nearly covered tha i
back part cf his leg to the knee..
"Finally I got Cuticura Soap, Cuti-'
cura Ointment and Cuticura FIII3 and •
gave them according to directions.. I !
used them in the morning and that even- 1
ing. before I put my boy to bed. I used
them again and the improvement erven
in those few hours was surprising:, tho .
inflammation seemed to be so much less. I
I U3ed two boxes of Cuticura Ointment," 1
the same of the Pills and the Soap and
my boy "was cured. My son is now in
his seventeenth year and ho has ceve^.
had a return of the eczema.
"I took care cf a friend's child that
had eczema on ita face and limbs and I,
vised the Cuticura Soap and Ointment.
They acted on the child just as they did
on my son and it has never returned. .
*I would recommend the Cuticura Reme-
dies to anyone. Mrs. A. J. Cochran. '
