There is in Philadelphia a clothing house which has no double in all the
world. The world is full of clothing houses ; and it is a geed deal te say that
one is unlike all the rest.
First, in its dealing ; ami it is surprising that one house should differ
much from another. Belling clothing is se simple a matter, that it is likely,
one would suppose, te be dene in very much the same way in Philadelphia,
New Yerk and Londen. But Philadelphia is ahead ; and, curiously enough,
one house in Philadelphia is ahead of all the rest.
Te be ahead in dcaliirg is te deal en a higher pbne, in a mete liberal
way, te give the buyer mere well founded confidence without less of the mer
cluint's safety. This Philadelphia clothing house says te a stranger : " We
want te deal with exact justice. We want what belongs te us, vie., a fair
profit ; aud we want you te have what belongs te you, viz., a liberal money's
worth. Our way te arrive at this result is te mark a price en everything we
sell, which price is absolute ; and te let you buy what you like, go away and
think the bargain ever, aud come aud trade back, if you waut te. We find by
experience that this liberality is harmless te us. Of course, you like it. And
it makes quick and ready dealing. We don't want you te bring back what
you buy it would cost us money every time ; but we would rather you would
bring back than keep, what j'eu don't like. Se, we try te see that you get
at first what you will like the better the mere you knew of it. This is really
the whole philosophy of our dealings." Is it any wonder that no ether clothing
house in this city, or New Yerk,- or Londen, deals in the same way ?
Second, in its goods the amount aud variety of them. There are ether
houses where excellent clothing is kept, and a great deal of it ; but there is
none, anywhere, that keeps se much. The dealing related above has wen the
largest trade the wei Id has yet seen. Te supply such a trade great quantity
and variety of clothing are required ; aud these in turn iucreaae the trade, be
cause everybody likes te cheese out of many things, rather than out of few.
This is the country of ready-made clothing. Great Britain makes the
most of any European country ; but there is net in all Londen any clothing
business a quarter as large as that of Oak Hall. New Tork has several large
clothing businesses ; but no one nearly equal te that of Oak Hall ; Bosten
Loek back tweuty years ! Have we deue you geed service, or net? But
that is net what we had in miud ; we were thinking of the clothes you are go
ing te buy le-day. Shall we sell them ?

a Queer Thanksgiving.
"It's the loneliest place iti Reme, thii
Palazzo Cempariui," said Thern, an
American painter, te uiuseppc, the por
ter. Giuseppe always lounged at the deer
that led from the court yard into a dark
ness and dampness supposed te be his
apartment. Giuseppe was white haired
and bent, and, after the fashion of Italian
lower orders, fslt almost past work at
fifty, but certainly net past the pleasure
" Certo, signore, the palace is lonely
enough nowadays, but the Cemp.iranis
used te be rich, and kept up a great state.
Ne grass in the court then, no mould en
these marble steps, no silence, no foreign
painters en the top fleer (without offense
te you signore.) Then the young count
ah, well, he was a rare one" here the old
porter fell te laughing " anil a gay one,
and a careless one, He went te" Paris, aud,
whew ! away went the money. The villa
was sold, the property en the Corse was
sold, the palace at Naples was "sold, aud
back came the count, as merry as ever, and
get married. Married a yeunij wife, and
then away went her fortune. Paris again,
1 horses, gambling, betting and worse. Five
years age he died died merry, tee. A
pleasant man was,thc count."
" Very pleasant," said Thern, grimly.
' Then he squandered everything?"
" Except this palace ; and that would
have gene if he had Hved."J
"Well, Iter father gave her something
mere, and then here's the palace yet.
Giuseppe shuffled off toward a young
lady who had just entered, and who beck
oned him from the staircase. She was a
little person, with a low brew and wonder
ful liquid eyes, and a row of small teeth
like, as Thern mentally remarked, sweet
corn. She had a dimple in one check only.
Yeu couldn't ask a mate in the ether, for
such a dimple couldn't possibly be repeat
ed. She had a small straight nose and a
full mouth ; she was brown, aud she was
nuick. vet languid. She talked with Giu
seppe in lively fashion, yet leaned agaiust
a pedestal, like a weary nymph in a pic
ture. All this Thern noted. Then he
caught Giuseppe's name as she pronounc
ed it, with that gcntle separation of the
syllables, as if lingering mere tenderly en
' What a lovely name the old wretch
has I" he thought. xVs the little lady
tripped lightly up the stairs he was very
glad te ask the old wretch, and right
eagerly tee, " Who is the signerina ?"
' The Countess Vittoria Cemparina ?"'
" Docs she live here?"
"Of course. On the second fleer."
' Docs she does anybody does she
have many visitors?" 'stammered Thern,
adding, te himself, " Confound the for
eign tongue 1 it won't let a fellow say
what he means." .
Giuseppe caught the meaning pretty
surely, for he answered, " Certainly, sig
nore, the countess sees her own friends."
" Yeu mean the foreigners that is, the
" I mean the Remans, net the foreign
ers. Ladies like herself, and gentlemen
like the count, her late husband.
" Like the fellow that spent the dowry."
" I mean gentleman people who don't
work as I de, or as "
" Ha ! ha ! as I de," laughed Thern.
" Well yes, signore," said Giuseppe,
with polite hesitation.
"Here's a genuine old world creature,"
thought Mr. Thern, net a little amused,
"untouched by republicanism, commun
ism or nihilism. Pray that his mistress is
mere modern, and se, accessible."
A vain prayer it seemed, for in pay
ment of a month of cold sentinel daily en
the marble stairs, often an hour at a time,
Mr. Thern had met the Countess Com Cem
parini but twice. Once she passed him
with a slight bow and downcast eyes as
he politely lifted his hat ; and one morn
ing she looked up with a "Grazie, signore,"
as he restored the prayer-book that she
had let fall en returning from early mass.
This wasn't the American way of getting
en with a lovely woman, se Thern ap
plied te au Italian fellow at the banker's
who talked English.
"Posseeble te knew the Countess Com
paring my dear fellow? Ne. The coun
tess is of an old house. She likes net the
foreigners. Impessecblc, my dear boy."
"Is it?" said Thern, and shut his teeth
"in geed New England fashion. "We'll
Then he lounged about town for days
making acquintances among the nobility.
Counts aud marquises in plenty he came te
knew, for Thern was only pleasing a Bohe
mian fancy by lodging in an old palace, and
could afford te stand wine dinners for even
the hungriest nobles in Italy. But no
luck. Invaiiably he found the Countess
Comparni unapproachable, frequenting a
small circle, but net inclined te fereigu
society. Sometimes he saw her piquant
little face en the Pincian, as she drove
alone in an open carriage, and then he
went home and laid the maddest schemes.
He even knocked seme mortar out of the
solid wall in his apartment and told Giu
seppe that he required, as a tenaut, te see
the countess about some repairs.
" The signore will go te the agent en the
corse," said Giuseppe.
At last Thern became horribly jealous
of this old porter, who was sure of a smile
and a pleasant word, or perhaps a little
confidential talk, as the countess came in
from her drive. Gloomily pondering
Giuseppe's geed fortune, au idea struck
the Americau. The countess was out.
Giuseppe was something el'a connoisseur in
wines. New Thern had a certain flask
containing a certain liquid that might
easily be called American wiue. Giuseppe,
without much persuasion, swallowed a
geed pint of whisky, and swore by all the
saints it was better than Montcpuciane.
Soen he lay senseless in the courtyard, and
then Thern coolly walked into the street,
waiting for the countess' carriage. Before
long it came, and he lounged discreetly in
the pep cechere.
"Giuseppe!" called the countess, in
that cooing way that always set Thern
wishing te be her serving-man. Then,sec
ing the roan's prostrate form, she gave a
little cry, and going te him in sweet wo
manly fashion, turned up his rough face
and said : " Oh, the peer Giuseppe is ill I

have heard through one of the open win
dows, but did net. "Teresa, help me.
Peer Giuseppe !"
This was Thern's time. Advancing, he
said : "Parden me, signora, but I have a
little skill. I can help the man."
"Are you a doctor, signore? I thought
you were a "
"A painter," laid Thern, secretly exult
ing that she had thought of him at all.
" Se I am, but se peer a one that I have
wit enough outside my own craft te treat
a simple case like this."
"Oh, he is an old and faithful ser
vant." " Leave him te me, and in a short time
I will let you knew his condition," said
Reluctantly she went. Thern moved
the man inside, and in five minutes met
the countess' anxious face at the deer of
her own salon. Be sure Giuseppe's recov
ery was delayed ; be sure that only Ter
esa, the maid, who did net understand the
symptoms, was allowed te approach him ;
and be sure that bulletins were conveyed
every few minutes te the countess by a
tireless messenger. During the evening
the invalid became conscious. Then Mr.
Worthington Thern with every claim te
gratitude, with a year of formal acquain
tance, franchiaed at one lucky bound,
reposing his six leet of American piuck
and expedient en an ancient Cempariui
sofa, and secretly laid down befere the
lady's dainty little slippers all his honest
New England heart.
New Giuseppe tee was indebted te
Thern for net mentioning the nature of his
illness, and obeyed the order te remain in
disposed for several days. Several days.
Several days ! why, they were mere like
several weeks, se common had it grown
for the countess te say, "A riserderla,
" Thern, if you please, signora."
Then, with a violent exertion te fulfill
the rules of enunciating " tfi' the trouble
some combination would somehow slip
away in a laugh and the couutess would
say, blushing aud looking very lovely in
deed, " Ah ! I can never say that foreign
name of yours "
"Try my lirst name Worthington."
" Vorlinten. Is that right ?"
"Whatever you say is right."
"Ah ! your Italian improves. Yeu can
make compliments already."
In truth Thern get en wonderfully in
Italian. With se much practice, no won

own account Out the countess was insati
able in her curiosity about his home and
the ways of the American people.

"then your sisters de net go te mass?"

they, standing up, listen."
"Hew dreadful! Peer girls, I pity

The signora was tee versed in coquetry

"An Italian wouldn't like that. And

"Most' women marry without any."
"Italians wouldn't like that," laughed
"But if a wife has property, it is pro
tected se the husband shall net squander
it. Would the Italians like that ?"
" I I think the women would," and the
countess looked thoughtful.
Thern felt he was striking home and
making progress ; but the countess, see
ing him dare te leek happv agaiu, started
herraillery. " New tell me about your
festa days. What de .you de at Easter ?"
" Nothing much worse where I live.
Seme people cat a I'exr eggs or put a few

" Hew sad ! Ne Easter ! But you have
a carnival ?"
" Net where I live."
" Ne carnival ! But an Italian would
die without the carnival. Pray what de
you have ?"
We have Fourth of July."
" Ferterhxtli!" and what is that ?'
Thern explained in a few words, ad
ding, " we make all the noise possible ;
send off fire-works all day and all night ;
but it's very het and disagreeable.",
It must be dreadful. But yen have
holidays. There's Christmas."
"Oh yes ;'we go te church then."
"Stand up and hear prayers ?"
" Oh, signore !' and the countess called
en heaven with her eyes.
"And the little children have little
trees, sometimes, like the Germans."
" LiUIe trees !"
" Yes brought into the house."
" Hew strange !"
"Thcnwc have Thanksgiving."
"Yes; that's a great day in late No
vember, when we have turkeys."
"Turkeys! where?'' and the countess
opened her soft eyes se wide that Thern,
quite lest himself in their brown depths.
"Where? Oh, en the table, te be
"Turkeys, and little trees, and a great
noise en a het day, and no carnival, ami a
priest in a common coat! I could never
like American ways." The countess shook
her head with decision, and for the rest of
the evening smiled upon a stout, middle
aged marquis, who had a waxed mous
tache. Fer weeks Thern haunted the old salon,
meeting the stout marquis at every call,
while Countess Vittoria bestowed her fa
vors evenly. If she admired Thern's last
picture,shc admired the marquis' new horse
if she let the marquis play with her fan, she
let Thern steal a flower from her bouquet.
When she was present, the marquis glared
at the American, and the American whis
tled settly te himself and looked ever the
stout gentleman's head. He was tali
enough te de it in a" aggravating way. At
last matters came te a crisis when Thern
sang a love song te Vittoria's own guitar,
and pointed the words very dramatically.
The marquis followed him out, aud en the
stairs said, very red and short of breath,
"Will you fight me, signore?"
"Why?" demanded Thern, coolly.
"Yeu knew why. The Countess Com

a cigar, "I don't quite see your point.

the marquis, fiercely.
" Then I esteem the countess tee highly
te injure her future husband. On the
ether hand," continued Thern, with pro
voking distinctness, " if you are net an
accepted suitor "
"Well, suppose I'm net?" blustered
the marquis, rather petraying weakness in
"Then, siguer raarchese, you are less
than nothing te me. I wouldn't waste
the time walking 'out te a retired spot te
sheet you down."
" Then veu won't fight?"
The marquis was purple with rage by
this time, and exclaimed, " Ceward 1"
At the word Thern asked, "Have you
"I have :" and a valet was beckoned,
who presented a pair. "Ha! you will
fight then ?" sneered the marquis. Thern
made no reply, but examined, one of the
" De yea observe," he said, still smok
ing, "the forefinger of that statue?" It
was a cast filling a niche at the feet of the
long flight of stairs. As be spoke he fired
and the finger,shot off, clicked as it fell en
the marble stairs. The marquis had just
time te note that, when the American
said, "new this is for calling me a cow
ard ;" and delivered a blew right between
his enemy's eyes which sent that titled
gentleman rolling down stairs in a sense
less heap. Then Thern went up te his
rooms the cigar still alight.
New Teresa, the maid had overheard
this scene and the next day the countess
said, "an Italian would have had a duel
with that gentleman, Signer Tern."
" wc aen t sheet tools in America ; we
whip 'cm," answered the young man.
" Your ways are net like ours," sighed
the countess with a mock regret, for a
smile was playing in that one unmatchable

and she took fright.

"Then your answer " said Thern,
growing very white.
"My answer is no."
"Geed night, countess, and geed-bye.

hepe which you have just blasted."
" De you go se seen ?"
"I shall stay merely for a celebration
that my countrymen enjoy at this season,
and which I am pledged te attend."

He went off bravely cueugh, leaving the
little woman standing with her pretty head
en one side and her eyes cast down.
It ought te be easy for a young fellow
of fortune, of talent, of many resources
both within and outside of himself, te
shake off the thought of a little woman
standing with her eyes cast down. Te that
end the American occupied himself dur
ing the i'ays that intervened before the
Thanksgiving dinner. Besides having
premise-it te be present, he feared his ab
sence, coupled with his known iutimaey
with the Ceuutess Vittoria, would give
rise te remark and set gossip all agog.
One, two, three times twenty-four hours
went slowly round. It was the cve of
Thanksgiving day ; it would be. his last
evening in the Cempariui palace, his last,
but one, in Reme. Peer Thern was seized
with a desire te see once mere the face
that had cost him se much divine uiuery,
te leek once meie iute the eyes that had
banished him a foolish, inconsistent im
pulse known euly te levers. Half uncon
sciously he tramped out into the great
hallways and up and down the cold stair
cases, imperfectly lighted by wretched oil
lamps. Thcre was confusion en the fleer
where the countess lived. Peeple were
hurrying in -at the doers and then men
seemed carrying in great boxes. He could
hear Teresa's shrill voice calling en the
Madenna as they stumbled awk
wardly under their burdens. The
noise of arrivals went en for a
long time ; then it was hard te
hear anything distinctly, the place was
se large and the walls se thick. Yet
there was the sound of music aud laughter
and at last some serviug-men went out in
a crowd, and Teresa's shrill whisper called
after them, " Bring enough for all te cat.
" Enough for them all te eat. It was a
party, then. Perhaps mere had come
than was expected, aud the careful Teresa
had te make prevision duly. In a mo
ment Thern convinced himself that the
stout marquis, who had probably recov
ered from his tumble, was being enter
tained by Ceuutess Vittoria's most win
ning smiles. In his excited mind he could
see them both ; that waxed moustache
(hew he hated it !) ; and Vittoria from
her dainty feet te the topmost braid of
her little head, he could see her tee sec
her smile and coquette aud bandy compli
ments with that detested fat fellow he had
knocked down stairs. Thern raged, shut
himself in the studio, walked up and
down all night, and looked like a spectre
in the morning. Toward neon he fell
asleep, and waking with a start at 3
o'clock he get up te dress for the dinner,
heartily wishing it all ever. Tryinir te
cogitate some verse, or toast, or epigram
for the occsien, he spied among the
brushes en the dressing table a dainty en
velope. Evidently Giuseppj had brought
it. while he slept. "The Countess Com Cem
parini's compliments, and she would be
happy te see Signer Thern" (then very
carefully written) "at 5 o'clock."
Thern vowed he wouldn't go ; then ;
seeing it was already five o'clock hurried
his toilette. He whisked out a clean hand
kerchief, he dashed a little cologne water
about, still swore he wouldn't go and be
tortured anew, hastily left his rooms, and
marched straight down te the familiar
great deer en the second-story. He was
ushered as far as the little antechamber.
The drawing-room was closely shut. Frem
another entrance the countess advanced te
meet him. She was charmingly dressed,
but very gentle and shy.
She hoped she saw the biguerc well.
"That could hardly be expected," he
answered, all resentment gene, as he
looked down upon the tender, girlish lit
tle creature who was dear te him.
"I have been," she faltered, " thinking
very seriously since we talked the ether
day.' and last evening "
Thern braced himself te hear she had
accepted the marquis at the party.
" last evening I made up my mind I
I want you te feel at home, se I arranged
a little surprise. I hope you will like it."
Here she opened the drawing-room deer.
"They make a dreadful noise, but it
pleases me for your sake."
The tears were in her eyes, she was
ready for his arms, yet Therne steed in
mute amazement. The Comparini drawing-room
was half filled with tables, and
en every table was a crowd of gobbling,
screeching, flapping, living turkeys, some
tethered, some cooped, but all joining in
the dreadful din.
. "What is the meaning " Thern began
in wild astonishment.
The countess broke down completely.
"It's the custom of your country en this
day you told me se turkeys en tables,"
she sobbed. "I'll try te be a perfect
"You're a perfect angel,' said Thern,
and all Countess Vittoria's tears, by
some strange law of hydraulics, ran down
an American-cut waistcoat.
And de you feel very much at home ?"
she asked, in a happy whisper.
"I never felt se much at home in my
life ;" he answered, clasping her closely.
"I knew you would. I'm se glad I did
it all right. The men found it hard te
fasten se many of them en the tables,
though ; and the feeding, that was dread,
Thern laughed very mueh. " Fer pity's
sake, have them taken off," he said.'
"Ne ; they shall stay. I don't miud the
noise. Ah ! care. when these things gob
bled se frishtfullr all dav !enr. I said. I
will love them, for this is the custom of
his country perhaps a part of his re
ligion." "Dearest," said Thern, as well as he
could through the flutter and cackle around
them, " leve has all customs, all religions
aud all countries for its own. Nothing is
hard, or strange, or foreign te hearts that
cling together like ours."
It was uet until the next year, when the
countess met a party of her husband's
compatriots that she found out the real
use of the great American turkey.
