The red squirrel usually waked me in the dawn, running over the roof and up and down the sides of the house, as if sent out of the woods for this very purpose. In the course of the winter I threw out half a bushel of ears of sweet corn onto the snow crust by my door, and was amused by watching the motions of the various animals which were baited by it. All day long the red squirrels came and went, and afforded me much entertainment by their maneuvers. One would approach, at first, warily through the shrub-oaks, running over the snow crust by fits and starts like a leaf blown by the wind. Now he would go a few paces this way, with wonderful speed, making haste with his ''trotters" as if it were for a wager; and now as many paces that way, but never getting on m.ore than half a rod at a time. Then suddenly he would pause with a ludicrous expression and a somerset, as if all eyes in the universe were fixed on him. Then, before you could say Jack Robinson, he would be in the top of a young pitch-pine, winding up his clock and talking to all the universe at the same time.
