An Improved Trap

A couple of years ago I posted about an 1888 issue of the Scientific American that I found at a flea market.  A couple of months ago I was lucky enough to find a patent belonging to my great-grandfather published in an 1866 issue of the Scientific American. So I thought I had better get busy and post these illustrated inventions from the issue I have. Someone might be looking for them.

Scientific American, Vol. LVIII.- No. 14,
published April 7, 1888, New York, Pg 212

I found Mr. John T. Moxley in the 1870 census.  He was listed as a farmer. I am guessing he had a rodent problem.
