In time of danger^ she acts ^nd acta cfuicUy. She : knows that that Js the only way to ! �scape. There is an old saying that! he Who he'sHates is lost and in no j other part; of the Great World is this ' more true than In the Green Forest and on the Green Meadows. Sbwnen Mrs. Gronse and Rusty the Fox Squlrral 'hciird the warnijis;; of Rusty'8 small/Cpflsin, Chatterer" the Red Squirrel, both made ready to act the very'instant they knew what the danger was and where it was. ,It might be that Reddy Fox was returning. In. that caso they were safe rl^t where they were in that spruce tree. But they had a feeling that it wasn't Reddy and you may be sure that both kept eyes and ears wide open for the first hint of what . that danger might be. From Chatterer's excited barking they folt sure that it was a greater tlanger than Reddy Fox. So they watched and waited, for It was useless to do anything unto they knew what to do and they couldn't know that until they knew what the danger was.

So she shot down and plunged^ into the snow which lay so deep on the gronnft. It flew up in a cloud aa she struck it. The force with which she plunged carried her along some distance from where she entered it. Quick as she was Terror the Goshawk was quicker and he shot down after .her so swiftly that to Rusty, �baking with fear as he watched from the spruce tree, it seemed that he Qitick as he jt'as.
