-'Th. common red squirrel is a relent

A nearby nurseryman writes us that
to considers the common mole one of
his, best friends and never thinks of
killing one of the little fellows. He
has learned by experience that their
chief article of food is the white grub,
or larva of the June bug, which not
only works havoc In strawberry beds,
but also in flower and~ vegetable gar
dens. While he admits that the mole
now and then makes the lawn 10014
somewhathunsightly in his search fom
trubs and worms,- It is his view thai
he does vastly more good than harir
in nature's economy.
It is estimated that 300,000 eagt
birds are imported into the United~
Stat.. every'year. Most of them come
from europe, Gerjmany In particular,
where the industry Is carried on ina
small way by the housewives, who car.
ry it on as a side Issue In connection
with their household duties. The birde
require relatively little care, yet bring
a handsome revenue. -Officials of the
department of agriculture are of the
opinion that these birds could in ni
short time be raised in this country In
steed of being imported from Europeati
countries in case proper attention were
given to the matter.
There are two or thfee things thai
