"T. W. B.," writes: "My Osage hedge was ruined last year, so this spring I replanted it; already the moles are at it in force. I enclose two of the hedge plants to show how ferociously they mutilate them. Can you propose any plan for poisoning them, or fighting them successfully so as to save the hedge?"
[Ground mice seldom injure a hedge after the succulency of the yearling plant has passed away. A few poisoned peas planted in the line of the hedge would be preferred to the roots. - Ed. G. M].
