when the incubator ofr"' now

least three such propositions arc
being got in shape To being be

Fifty of these establishment
would cost the taxpayer $150,00C

-Thd exnondiltire would no&
stop with that sum if these insti

All such functions in . the name
o'f the state oneo organized grow
and their expense increases from
year to year.
A state ratcatehhlg campaign
has been inaugerated. Rat sur'
veys arc being made. The state
food commissioner is askinir for
legislation to exterminate rats.
That means a state Rat Catcher
or Rat Commissioner.
The third proposition to be
sprung on the legislature is the
oration of the office of County
Advisor an expert to give ad
vice to all county officials about
the duties of their offices.
This is now the duty of the
county attorney rind, the attot
ney General of the state. But
the County Advisor would be
giving advice about office dutiei
and business matters.
The legislaiinis blamed for
many foolish laWiand now bur

really are organized and put ov

terested in the proposed grafts.
