Following the hanging of Henry
Lloyd Friday for the murder of James
A. Tyrell, a merchant, who was killed

-UNCLE~ SAM'S FIED PIPERS
Spasmodic rat extermination cam
paigns are of course beneficial, but to
secure lasting results constant war
fare must be waged against the rat,
say specialists of the Bureau of Biolo- 1
gical Survey, United States Depart
ment of Agriculture. The necessity A
for this is plain in the fact that rats (
begin to breed at three months and
-have from 6 to 10 litters v. year, wvith

Specialists of the Department of
Agriculture for years have made ex
tensive studies of rats and methods of
exterminating them. No matter howl
badly a house may be infested with
rates, these experts maintain, the
use of the methods perfected by them
will absolutely, and without doubt, rid
the house of the rodents.
Throughout the United States health
authorities are advocating the use of
these methods and gratifying results
are being secured. Thus Kansas has
designated a special "rat (lay." Cincin
nati is spending thousands of dollars
in a rat campaign, and similar move
ments are being conducted at Norfolk,
along the Gulf doast, and in many
other cities. In addition the. bureau
is constantly giving advice to hund
reds of correspondents.
"Rat-proofing" of buildin isthe
basic step in rat extermination. Food
should be protected and sanitry me
thods employed for disposal of waste
food. Where rats may die in the
walls poisoning is not recommended,
but where this condition can not re
sult barium carbonate worked into al
most any kind of food is the poison to
ise. Snap traps, often called "gullio
Line traps," are the most effective in
-rapping. The traps should be placed
in every part of the house that rats
requent. One or two traps are not
mough. The traps should be baited
vith fresh meats, seeds, nuts, vegeta
)les, fruit, or any other food.
The bureau will be glad to advise
my one regarding the correction of
my rat condition, upon receipt of full
letails. Letters should be addressed
