Fly Catching Mice, 1898

Copyright 2014, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

From the Adrian Daily Telegram, 1898.
Adrian, Lenawee County, Michigan.

One of the attractions on South Winter street are two mice that appear in Moreland Bros & Crane’s window, each evening, in search of their evening meal.  They have the art of catching flies down fine, and the two little fellows afford much amusement to the passerby as they chase the flies down into one corner and then snap them up.  It is needless to say that the mice are as round and fat as can be.
