From figures gathered in all parts of the country
federal experts have determined that the average
rat consumes $2 worth of grain a year.
Now if farmers around Dublin have any way of
determining how many rats they have around their
homes they can tell just what it is costing them in
good hard dollars to maintain them. Wien one con-
siders that single rat can get away with $2 worth
of marketable products annually it is hard to under-
stand why more attention is not given to their elimi-
nation. If everyone realized that the sum of $2 could
be saved this year bv slaying a single rat, think what
a slaughter there would !>e. And yet Uncle Sam says
there is a saving of $2 worth of grain every time a
rat ^killed. He gives no figures concerning the des-
trucmm Wrought bv mice, but housewives know it
must he in proportion. What the country seems to
need just now as much as anything else is a national
rat and mice killing campaign. __
DON’T THROW IT AWAY
Along about this time of year local housewife!*
iregin ridding the house of what is most generally
-tasified as “junk.” Few of them, unfortunately,
realize what may be jjunk to them really constitutes
n article of value to someone else in the neighls>r-
mhmI. It mav be an odd piece of furniture, a worn rug
>r carpet, a lamp, radio, washing machine, table or
tove. Why throw it away when there is a chance
hat someone else needs it and would gladly pay a
reasonable price for it t Some one else may In* want-
ng right this minute the very thing you are going
lo destroy tomorrow. And finding out who they are
sn’t difficult, nor is it expensive. A few cents spent
or a little local liner in these column* will most gen-
rally serve to put you in contact with someone who
jpants the very thing you arc tired of—so&eone will-
ing to pay you for it. It takes but a moment to drop
'n and inquire about the cost. And it'may mean an
vrtnal cash profit for you.

A matter of great interest to everyone is the
fact that rapid progress is being made in the elirni-
lation of jifrade-erossings all over the country, 74b
laving been wiped out in 193b. Flan* have been ap
roved by the government for 166 more such pro-
ecta and from money available at the last session of
•ongress possibly 500 more will be eliminated by
he end of the current year. That is the kind of safety
vork the public approves of. But it should In* remem-
bered by uaBtorist that not all the death traps are
going to be eliminated over night. There will still be
plenty of need for cautious driving over rail-crossings
for a good many years to come, ami so long as there
mi a single crossing left, everyone who drives over it
is in more or less danger. You don’t win anything
if you treat a train to the crossing. And if it happens
to be a tie just think what you stand to lose.
The weakness of law is that you <-an break a lot

From Industrial News Review
Don't leave small children alone |
Tragedy after tragedy has been
recorded where an untended child
has been either killed or disfigured
for life by fire. A recent case is
cited by the Industrial Commission
of Wisconsin A boy of four and
his brother of six months were left
in the house when the parents
went visiting. The boy pushed the
baby buggy containing his brother
to close to the heating stove. A
blanket caught fire, and the Infaijt
was fatally burned.
Other accounts tell of fire*
started by children playing .with
matches. In still other Incidents a I
stove door Is opened or lids lifted
Off by the child and fires are start-
ed. Fatal results have often follow-
ed the pouring of keroaene on a
fire by a child. All small children
love to play with fire, and no pre-
caution should be overlooked In
restraining them. ' ~
Parents should immediately take
two steps. First, never leave your
children alone at home. Second, do
the simple and inexpensive thing*
necesary to the elimination of com-
mon fire hazards. All fireplaces
should be screened. Clothe* should
be hung at a safe distance from
pipes and stoves All hestlng
equipment and adjuncts should be
periodically inspected and over-
hauled. Continuous care should be
taken in handling and storing in-
fiamable liquids. Waste of all
Hindu, such as paper* ami rags,
should be disposed of or stored in
metal containers. The wiring of
electric appliances should be
checked occasionally a frayed or
twisted cord can cause short cir-
cuits followed by fire.
Every minute a fire breaks out
In America. Two-thirds of all
those fires occur in homes. Will
your home be on that list this
year—and will you and your
family be subjected to a menace
that may take life, due primarily
to your own carelessness 7
