The Weasels and the Mice waged a perpetual war with each other, in which much blood was shed. The Weasels were always the victors. The mice thought that the cause of their defeats was that they had no leaders to command them, and that they were exposed to dangers from lack of discipline. So they chose some noble Mice as leaders. Their leaders were known for their strength and wit, as well as for their courage in the fight. The new leaders formed the rest of the Mice into regiments and battalions. When all this was done, the war started again. The new Mice generals bound their heads with straws, that they might be seen by all their troops. Scarcely had the battle begun, when the Mice were routed and had to hide into their holes as fast as they could. The generals, not being able to get in because of the ornaments on their heads, were all captured and eaten by the Weasels.
The more honor the more danger.
