Destruction of Mice Will Save Much Grain Small but mighty—mighty big destroyers of grain is what Iowa State College extension entomologist Harold Guhdcrscn says of mice in Iowa. Mice not only destroy grain on farms and in elevators, they contaminate food in grocery stores and in the home. They chew holes in feed sacks and are carriers of such diseases as infectious jaundice and possibly endemic typhus. To control mice in the house. Gu'nderson recommends trapping. Poison will eradicate them, but it seldom works fast enough to kill the mice before they get into places where they can't be readied. In barns and granaries a few kernels of poisoned wheat or oats sprinkled on runways or s in holes will do the'trick. Strychnine is the recommended poison. Commercial arsenic-containing liquids is suggested for elevators where all water can be shut off from the mice. Sparrows, which carry mites and build fire-hazard nests, can also be controlled with strychnine-treated grain. Best results are obtained if untreated grain is scattered on sills and other sparrow roosting places a .few days prior to the poisoning. Care should be taken not to scatter poison grain where other birds can eat it. STRANGE COW. When Harlan Hunter of near New London started for the barn one day last week he noticed that the cattle were bawling and that there was considerable confusion in the barn yard. A large buck deer, mingling with the stock, took one look at Mr. Hunter, then jumped away and skipped into the brush. PRANKSTER? Tired and weary after a hard day's work. Mrs.: Melvin Pratt of Spencer received a phone call the other evening. A man's voice told her that she had won $1,000 on the "pot o' gold" program. She has received no money and it appears the call was the work of a prankster. . IS 101. At Sibley last month, Hans Rohlfsen celebrated his 101st birthday. Mr. Rohlfson is still sprightly and last summer put in and tended a sizeable garden. All of his children, for the first time in 10 years, gathered at Sibley for the occasion.
