explained to Peter why it Is that most
of the birds seek the far-away, sunny
Southland for the winter, making that
long ami dangerous journey twice a
year, going down in the fall and com-
ing back in the spring. Peter never
had been aide to see any sense in it
but now that Prickly Porky bad ex-
plained it.. It was nil very s tuple and
reasonable. Prickly Porky wasn’t as
stupid as be looked.
“Perhaps.” thought Peter, “be can
tell me why ii is that so many of my
friends sleep all winter.’’ So lie
thanked Prickly Porky for what lie
had just told him about tin* birds, and
then in bis most polite manner he
“Is it for the same reason that John-

“Well, Johnny has a different kind
of stomach from yours,” continued
I'rickly Porky. “It is made for green
(hlngs and green tilings only. Even if
it wasn’t he would starve. Cun you
imagine Johnny Chuck with Ills short
legs getting around in the snow to
look for food? Of course you can’t.
You know as well as I do that even
in summer he never dares go very far
from his house, and then there is al-
ways plenty of food right close at
hand. In winter you have to do n lot
of traveling to get enotig.i to eat, don’t
Again Peter nodded.
“And sometimes it Is pretty danger-
ous, isn't it ?"
Peter nodded once more.
“How far do you think Johnny
Chuck would get before Granny Fox
or Reddy Fox or Old Man Coyote or
Roughing the Hawk would have him?’
asked Prickly Porky.
"I hadn't thought of that,” con-
“Of course you hadn’t," retorted
Prickly Porky. "You are one of those
people who want others to do your
thinking for you. That’s the trouble
with you. Peter. If you did a little
real thinking you wouldn’t ask so
many foolish f|Uest.ions."
For a long time Peter said nothing,
