THE MOLE AND HIS MOTHER
A LITTLE Mole once said to
"Why, Mother, you said I was
blind! But I am sure I can see!"
Mother Mole saw she would
have to get such conceit out of his
head. So she put a bit of frankincense bef ore him and asked him
to tell what it was.
The little Mole peered at it.
"Why, that's a pebble!"
"Well, my son, that proves
you've lost your sense of smell as
well as being blind."
Boast of one thing and you will
be found lacking in that and a few other things as well.
