Introduction

DID you ever stand by the window on a Wintry Day, watching the Merry Little Snowflakes come dancing down, and wonder what all the Wild Creatures were doing? To be sure you have, unless you live in a country where the Fleecy Snow never falls.

When this earth was first created, there was no such thing as Fleecy Snow upon it. God never intended that Old Man Winter should freeze the Dancing Little Leaflets and make them fall. There was not even rain upon the earth until the time of the Flood. But when sin entered the world, there were many, many changes.

At creation the weather was neither too cold nor too hot. It was just right to please every living thing. The Feathered Friends did not have to fly away in search of a warmer place to live, as many of them do now each fall. And the Furry Friends lived just the same the year round.

But how different it is now! Even Fearful the Man has had to change his manner of living to meet the changed conditions. Every place we go in the Great Wide World we see people who are living differently from the way they do in other places.

And so it is with the Wild Creatures. They have learned how to live under the changed conditions in this sinful world, which are so different from what they were in the Garden of Eden.

In this, the last of OLD HOMESTEAD TALES, You will read about what the Wild Creatures do in Wintry Weather on the Old Homestead. Perhaps it will tell you some of the things you were wondering about as you stood by the window and watched the Merry Little Snowflakes come dancing down.
