Many people do such a crazy thing as pour kerosene on live coals that are not ablaze to start a fire. These hot coals at once form a gas that rises very rapidly and when very much has formed will explode. Here is where all the fault lies f When wanting to kindle a fire, should the stove be hot and contain live coals, light a paper and place it in the stove before entering the oil, thus the flames will burn the gas as fast as it rises and avoid an explosion.

People who write things which they would like to see printed in a newspa-per.should bear in mind that what they write as their personal opinion should be gathered by them, and when they WTite stuff that is not tit for them to attach tbéir names to it should never be brinted.

A new method of rat killing has been used by many farmers successfully. They back their automobiles near the barn or other buildings where the rata are, attach a rubber hose to the exhaust pipe and start the engine. The gas fumes from the engine soon kills the rats. The only way they can save themsevles is by using gas masks and they have not learned that trick yet. We heard of one farmer who cleaned bis entire farm of the pests by this method When the hose is placed at the entrance of the rat hole, place some dirt around the hose so that the gas cannot get away.
