Rural Rat Clubs.
In any rural community badly In
fested with rats, it is a good plan for
farmers to form rat dubs and offer
prizes for destroying the rodents. The
yoTinger members of the community as
well as adults should be allowed to
compete and the prizes should be
awarded periodically, as once a month.
A first, second and third prize are
suggested for those who bring In the
greatest number of rat tails. Specific
rules governing the contests should be
made at the start, and instruction as
to proper methods of trapping or other
wise killing rats should be part of
the program for each meeting of the
club. Prizes may be provided by priv
ate donation or even by assessment of
members. The plan gives better satis
faction than a system of straight re
wards, because it arouses more en
thusiasm and costs less. D. Lants in
