$500 WORTH 1
A man in a nearby town recently killed ?.
103 rats with a new kind of rat poison. '
According to the estimate of a Govern* "j
mcnt expert, a jingle rat, on the average, \
destroys $5 worth ol foodstuffs annually. ?
At this rate, these 103 rats had been j
costing over gSOO every year.
With this new rat poison, known as
Rat Mum, anyone can get ridoi every <|
rat on his olace auicklv and with the s
greatest ease. Rat Mum is entirely dil- j
lerent from otber rat poisons in that it <
destroys without odor. s
Another point?neither dogs nor cats J
will eat it. It is not spread on food, and <
you don't run this risk *>t having hu- j
manseat it bv mistake. Hat Mum comes J
inacake. Vou simply crumble it and
put it where the rats will get it?and
you're soon rid of the pests. Remember
the name. Rat Mum. and ask for a 25 j
