dollars is a heap of money Anyhow it is more than most of us carry around I with us And yet this tremendous sum of money is what it is costing the United States to feed the rats in this country This it is estimated is the food cost alone to say nothing of the destruction caused by rats in many 1 other ways The Department of Health has attention to the rat j menace as a means of spreading ease The United States Government is fighting rats all time in are liable to have bubonic plague U S Public Health authorities j have also discovered and have long ago promulgated the fundamental fact 1 that the only way to get rid of rats is t to build against them This means proofing construction in all our ings that are inhabited or infested by i rats I It is a singular fact that the rat is the only wild animal that lives in the abodes of man In many localities rats dwelling places others con- fine tenancy to barns granaries wharves docks and office buildings All of the old office buildings in the loop district are infested with rats They are a source of constant annoyance to hotel keepers and restaurants The Department of Health is serving ces every day to people of this class to rid their premises of rats and at least to keep them out of the rooms where their foodstuffs are stored It seems to be almost an impossible task The newer type of buildings are practically many of them wholly so and axe therefore not in- But as stated the older types of buildings swarm with them In St Louis recently a large hotel was torn down as being the cheapest method of ridding it of rats It was first thought that it might be made This was found impossible so the building was wrecked and will be replaced by a modern structure If Chicago needs anything now it needs legislation that will for the proper construction of buildings to make them One hundred sixty-five millions of dollars is estimated as the annual food cost to the people of this country for rats This sum spent in construction each year would soon rid the country of these dangerous and ex- pensive pests The need of the hour is proper legislation as to building Some of the cities of the United States have already enacted along these lines Chicago should not longer delay action in this important matter it is bad enough for men and to destroy their own brains burn up their knock out their nerves livers kidneys hearts and blood vessels but to leave a legacy of feeble minds and broken bodies to their children is still worse This is where the regulation of individual erty becomes a community matter just as the fight against diphtheria and the drug habit is a social community and race fight Service Department of Health December COAL OUR GUARANTEE If any load that leaves our yard is reweighed and found barring a
