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 fre- quently ealled attention to the rat j menace as a means of spreading d's- ease. The United States Government is fighting rats all th'e time in counti'ies :that are liable to have bubonic plague. ]The 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 rat- proofing construction in all our build- 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 over-run dwelling places; others con- fine the'ir 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 noti- 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 rat-proof; many of them wholly so, and axe, therefore, not in- fested. 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 rat-proof. This was found impossible, so the building was wrecked and will be replaced by a modern rat-proof structure. If Chicago needs anything now, it needs legislation that will piovide for the proper construction of buildings to make them rat-proof. 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 rat-proofing 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 or- dinances. Some of the cities of the United States have already enacted or- dinances along these lines. Chicago should not longer delay action in this important matter. it is bad enough for men and uomen 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 lib- erty becomes a community matter, just as the fight against diphtheria, tuber- culosis and the drug habit, is a social, community and race fight.
