Studies in the Art of Rat-Catching. By H. C. Barkley. Story of a professional rat catcher. I had a struggle at first. Rats, full-grown ones, only fetched twopence each, and the system adopted by farmers of letting their[Pg 5] rat-killing, for, say, three pounds a year for a farm of 400 acres, almost broke me; but I stuck to my profession, and do not regret having done so. In those days, and during all my active life, I have had to work to live, owing to the constant scarcity of rats; but if I managed to make a living then, what might not be done now, when Nature has sent the rat to our homesteads by thousands, and farmers and others are being eaten off the face of the earth by them? With the modest capital of five shillings given me by my father, and a mongrel terrier, given me by a poacher who had to go into retirement for killing a pheasant and half killing a keeper, I began my career as a-but I had better give you one of my professional cards. Here it is- Bob Joy,
