eighteen to twenty inches, where a
thickness of three or four inches us

The trapper says that seven jnehes,
the greatest thickness in these nests
noted in past years, was seen during
the winter of 1888, when blizzards
swept Nebraska and the Dakotas,
claiming so many rural school teach
ers, pupils and lone prairie dwellers.
Forty degrees below zero was no un
common thing then.
Squirrels usually use sticks, straw
This year, Mr. Freid -
mann says, in some instances the lit
tie animals have'used mud to plaster
the dwellings together. In the same
tree where the nest is built is usual
ly a hollow, which the squirrel uses
for nuts and also for hibernation
when the weather gets so cold that
it cannot live in its nest. This year
the hollows are filled to overflowing
with nuts. None are being planted
in the ground at the foot of the trees
and the nests are being partially filled.
This, according to Freidmann, in
dicates that the squirrel is afraid to
trust to a too heavy frozen earth
surface and instinctively anticipates
weather that will compel him to re
main in the nest.
