Rat Paste
-- To destroy rat and mice, melt a
pound of lard and stir into it half an ounce
of phosphorous carefully. When nearly cold,
thicken with flour and spread the paste on
small pieces of brown paper. Lay them near the
rat holes, where they will eat the paste greedily
with fatal results.


  1. We have rat holes? Time to stop feeding the cats...
