October 27, 1887 — Capt. M.V.B. Kite marshaled his forces one evening last week and attacked a regiment of rats that had taken possession and gone into winter quarters in his mill near Marksville, this county.

After a fierce fight in which were slain 67 rats, weighing gross 26 pounds, Mr. Kite’s troops triumphed.
