B OLD ENGLISH SCRIBE TALKS
ON THANKFUL THINGS ET AL
Amjtnn to, CorrMpoadfnln.

istThanks for drawing; may uso
some' time when ye paper Is not pub
lished. It Is certainly a One study,
but 'would be obliged If you could say
what it Is. Kangaroo You are right
Ye. man who wrote that "colonial"
story In ye Defender must have had
a dream about being there. He seems
to have come from London originally,
and that within sound of ye Dow bells,
Perhaps It was ye Idea of having
a holiday In ye middle of ye week
that caused ye scribe to reflect dur
ing ' Thanksgiving, and then, again,
perhaps It was ye after effects of ye
turkey that he did not have. Any
way, he reflected like some of ye
grat and learned men, and as, a re
sult of nys1 deliberations he has come
to ye conclusion that this Is not such
a had old world after all, and setting
aside the fact of us being brought Into
It without being asked, we have many
things to be thankful for. ,
First of all, ye populace should be
thankful that they are alive that Is,
some of them should; the others
should think themselves lucky to be
allowed to remain In that condition
at all. That Is by. ye way, however.
Ye scribe took nil' inventory of hym
selfVon Thursday, Just to see bow
much he had to ye, good. First of all,
he (noted down n shock of red hair
ye boys nt school used to call It
ginger, but then what's In a name?
Now, there nro only a few people In
ye world that have red hair, and
therefore ye scribe can be cptinted
amongst, ye lucky ones. Then ye
scribe took notes about hys fuco. He
has to admit that he would not' win
a beauty show unless it was In the
booby class, but even this ls an ad
vantage, for ye. fair and lovely chorus
glrlsat ye bljoti will not be falling
In love with hym and then getting
hym Into trouble with hys wife.
Neither, likewise, will he be likely
to suffer from ye swelled hend and
strut down ye street as If he owned
Ye ears are rather on ye large size,
and stick out a little on each slilo.
This, again, Is an advantage, from ye
fact that he can hear everything that
Is going on around hym. He Is pigeon
chested, which again Is good, for then
he looks so small and Insignificant
jthat no one will molest hym, thinking
hym too weak to hit. Ye next Item
on ye list was that he Is very weak,
and this, too, counts on ye credit side,
for he Is not expected to do nny hard
.work, leaving all that to hys wife.
! Having big feet ho likewise counts
as good, for with such a hold oh ye
earth he Is not likely to fall off.
It all depends on ye viewpoint, as
some wise guy has remarked. A dol
lar looks a mighty small thing when
you look at It edge on, but it Is very
nice when you turn It round. Just
sit down for five minutes and ask
yourself what ye next man has over
you. If he has plenty of money, then
you hao only a little to' worry with
that is, of course, unless you want
to try and live llko hym and eat all
manner of Indigestible things that ye
stores put Up especially for such peo
ple, charging them twice as much as
you pay for your food. If he has an
automobile and you have none, then
think of all ye danger he Is In while
he drives It. Then, too, once In a
while you can find hym when he has
had a blowout and has not a spare
with hym. Just you sit down and
gloat then, for that Is agony. More
especially Is this so when he has with
hym hys fashionable wife, who wears
corsets' that will not allow her to
walk two yards at one time, nor to
do anything else but alt on an Incline.
You know the iprt of Grecian-bend
goddesses that you see around town
sometimes. This lady will loll back
back on the seat while he covers hym
self with grease and uses nasty swear
words under hys breath (sheo is a
member of ye Prevention of Swearing
Among Men Society), and listens to
ye gentle but biting sarcasm that falls
from her lips all ye while.
Ye scribe could go on' forever, or
pretty near It, anyway, telling of all
ye Eood things In life, for there Is an
Old saying that nothing exists In this"
ttorhl without it trace of alloy, mid It
Is a mlglity big truth.
Oct out and live the nature life
and be simple, and you will see what
a ot of fun there Is In this good old
world, ThnnksgUIng dinners to the
I Scribe's Short Story.
Aiphonse Adolphus Montmorency
stopped suddenly and strained
through the darkness that loomed
ahead of hym like night. From out
e ubysmal silence came n dismal
howl. Ho shivered and wrapped hys
greatcoat around his body, while ye
great oceans of fog rolled by.
Suddenly something sprang through
ye air at hym. He tried to dodge It,
but was too late, and ye next moment
he was lying Insensible on ye ground,
while ye desperado was running away
In ye direction from which he came.
Mrs. Montmorency stood at yo' front
door and waited for ye return of Ai
phonse Adolphus Montmorency, but
he came not. For nn hour she had
been standing there, and at lust she,
went Inside and hid behind yo door,
Two hours later a dismal figure
rolled along yo street in ye direction
of ye Montmorency home. Ye side
walk was too narrow, and ye uncer
tain footsteps of ye wanderer led all
over ye pavement. At last, clinging
to ye railings, it hauled Its way
through towards ye front door und
leant against It In nn affectionate
manner. Suddenly ye door opened
and ye figure felt through.
Ow 1 Help!
Stop! Y. M. C. A.! Wretch!
Flop! Bang!! Smash!!
Ye first chapter Is what Alphonso
told yo boys at ye office ye next morn
An Undecworld Hero.
Just occasionally ye scribe tnkes n
trip Into ye underworld and sees,
something of ye struggles for exist
ence that are fought out where ye
main portion of ye population never
seo them. He recently heard of one
case which he here sets down as ye
good examplo for anyone.
There was a family consisting of
mother, father and seven children.
The father died and left ye others to
look after themsehes, as is ye cus
tom In ye underworld. They had
nothing, and what could ye mother
do with all that family to look after?
The oldest boy was fourteen when ho
shouldered his burden and went out
to earn food for ye family.
Early In e morning, about ye time
when ye sun is Just thinking of get
ting up, he roso and went down to
ye waterfront. Sometimes be landed
ii Job, and again lio illd not. Whui '
ho saw that there was no iluuice of
doing anything In that line, he cntne ,
uptown and bought some newspapers
and went around Belling them. Later
during ye day he shlned ye boolH of
if populuce nt a nickel n time, i:prj
pair that he made reflect ye dolngr
of ye World mennt some food for )t
family, for In ye underworld they bit)
by ye nickel when they have sucL
He was a bright boy, this, ami lie
made money; not very uiuih, but suf
ficient, He kept to hymsclf, und as
a consequence he did not let hys
family know all that he earned. Ily
und by ho hnd saved up some money,
and ho entered Punnhou School. He
did not let up on hys work at nil;
In fact, ho got up a little earlier and
worked a little harder.
When he was seventeen he got sick,
and the uwful strain that ho hud been
through for the last few years told
on hym. Hys mother wus in despair
and wanted u doctor, but did not have
yo money for one. Then o boy told
her to look oer ye door and shu
would find some money. There, put
away for a rainy day, she found
twenty-five dollnrB that he hnd saed,
nickel by nickel, during yn years he
had been struggling. She sent for
ye doctor, but It was too late; the
boy's system was too much run down
and he died.
This Is only one of many such sto
ries that might be told of ye under
world, where struggles such as ye
ordinary man has no Idea of go on
as a matter of course, and where It
Is a constant struggle, not to keep
up appearances, but to actually live.
