English Sparrows-No. 1 Indian meal is the best vehicle for any kind of drug.
No. 2 . Take one part by weight of white arsenic to 15 parts of corn meal or grain paris green and lard on purple would be just as valuable as the arsenic except for bright color, which arouses the sparrows suspicion. If corn meal is used the arsenic should be stirred in dry and the mixture afterwards moistened. It should be fed moist. If whole grain is used it should be moistened before stirring in the arsenic. It will be found advantageous to add a little gum Arabic to the water used to moisten the mixture as it causes the poison to adhere more firmly to the kernels. Then the grain should be dried before using. The directions are the result of experiments by Dr. Fisher, U.S. Department of Agriculture. Bulletin on English Sparrows.
