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.
