Questions linked from The Waste Land, Part II, line 115

Part II
Line 115

To what purpose is Eliot in his note to line 115 connecting these lines:

115)  I think we are in rats' alley
116)  Where the dead men lost their bones.

To these lines?

193)  White bodies naked on the low damp ground
194)  And bones cast in a little low dry garret,
195)  Rattled by the rat's foot only, year to year.
