Clipped From The Raleigh Times
Has Killed 99 Rats. Mr. J. D. Thompson, who lives at 222 South Bloodworth street, is an enthusiast on the subject of destroying destroying the big Norway rats which so infest Raleigh, and which are doing so much damage. This year he has caught 99 and hoped this morning to find another in his trap, to make an even 100. One of the rats he has caught was as large as a small cat not a kitten.
