This is what an Indiana man says: " Last year I put twelve moles in my strawberry patch of five acres, to catch the grubs, and they did the work. I never had a dozen plants injured during the summer, either by the grubs or moles. I know some people do not care for moles on their farms, but I want them in my strawberry patch".
There was a mouse that asked a cat for protection against a dog that was worrying it. The cat drove the dog away, but in the end the mouse got the worst of it. We fancy few people envy the man with the strawberry patch and the moles.
