The object of the Company is
to operate a large Cat Ranch near
Oakland where land can be pur-
chased cheap for this purpose.
To start with, we will colleit,
say One Hundred Thousand (ioo,-
ooo) cats, each cat will average
twelve (12) kittens a year. The
skins run from ten cents (iod
each for the white ones, to seven-
ty-five cents (75c) for the puie
black. This will give us 12,000,-
000 skins a year to sell at an av-
erage of thirty cents a piece,
making our revenue about ten
thousand dollars a day gross.
A man can skin fifty cats p<-'
day for two dollars. It will take
one hundred men to operate the
ranch, therefore the net profit
will thus be $9,800.00 per day.
We will feed the cats on rats,
and will start a Rat Ranch next
door. The rats multiply four
times as fast as cats. If we start
one million- rats we will have
therefore, four rats per day foi
each cat, which is plenty.
Now then, we will feed the
rats on the carcasses of the cats
from which the skins have been
taken, giving each rat a fourth of
It will thus be seen that the
business will be self-supporting
and automatic all the way thru.
The cats will eat the rats and the
rats will eat the cats and we will
net the skins.

regardless of political adulations.
There are many reasons why Mr.
Davis should receive the *uPJ°rt
the voters of Grant county this fail
aeainst Mr. McGuire, one of the
most important ot which 1. none other
thnn Mr McGuire himself.
0ne of the arguments which Mr.
MoOulre has used
campaigns for election, and •which he
will no doubt use again this year, is
his ability to secure federal buildings
for the cities in his district. Grant
county owes Bird nothing on this
score yet, although there is no telling
j how many buildinge will be promised
! for our county this fall. Grant coun-
' ty has already paid enough towards
the erection of federal buildings in
other cities in this district to entit e
us to a few ourselves without placing ,
oursevles under any paricular obliga-
tion to the congressman from this dis-
trict, but as we are not aspiring to
any favors of this kind just now it
will take more persuasive argument
to convince the voters of this county
that a standpat congressman is .just
the man we are looking for at this
time. „ , .
In applauding Mr. McGuire for his
ability at securing federal buildings
for this district the friends of Bird
evidently fail to recognize the fact
that the" taxpayers in the district pay-
or these buildings and that they are
not getting a thing that is not justly
due them And right here let us
pause to add that while Grant couu-
v has been
with her pro rata of the expense 01
these McGuire favors we have nevei
yet received any return for our outlay
'of money. In order to secure these
buildings we should not lose sight oi
the fact that Mr. McGuire needed help j
from other congressmen, for which he
in turn has lent his aid and influence
in securing favors for other congress-
men, higher tariff on lumber for in-
stance and innumerable other things
which the average voter loses sight of
in his blind devotion to the party of
Davis is a progressive of the gen-
uine variety. McGuire is noted for his
ability to stand for all things at all
times in the hopes that by all means
he may gain the necessary votes.
McGuire will receive the votes of
the negroes of Logan county and of
that element to which price and favor
stands higher than principle. For
that reason John J. Davis should re-
ceive an overwhelming vote in (Irant
county where progressiveiam reigns
supreme, and where we owe Mr. Mc-
Ouire nothing so much as a vote of
rebuke against his actions of the part
