AFTER THE PESTS
Daily newspapers carried a small
item a few day sago that escaped the
attention of thousands, yet which
touched on a subject of vital interest
to the whole country. It was an item
to the effect thnt Sen. Shortrilge, of
California, had asked congress for an
appropriation to fight rats in the cit
ies nbout San Francisco bay.
The f rt that an appropriation for
sue hpui | < es will even Ke consider
ed is proof that conditions have
changed and that the people of this
country realize they have before
them a continuous fight upon pests.
The other day money was appropriat
ed by a western state to fight • chick
en pest. In e-ory case the money for
these things comes out of the naak-
ets of the people, but the benefits
they derive arc far greater than
they have any means of knowing
Bubonic plngiie, the most dreaded di

called the “great white plague”, enn

And so it goes.
There are plenty of rats in Vernon
ia. No section of the United States
is entirely free of them, and for thnt
reason no section is wholly free from
the dangerous diseases that they car
ry. If we cannot have legislation in
this state to rid us of pests, then let •
us do the next best thing, let us make
an individual fight upon them, each
citizen waging battle on his own
premises. We will soon find that it
wil lprove time well spent
