I.ast Tlmrsiia was Thanksgiving da) in
this latitude. There was a ver) general
disposition atnoiic: the business men to close

was one of the humblest who celebrated
the da. 1 was in a thankful frame of

reason to be glad. 1 shirt had returned

to the fact that it was a national
holiday. When the dinner hour
came. I looked real clean and
j lnvituic. but nobod) invited me. Some
how . a man can t put on a clean snirt in in)
neighborhood w ithout arousing resentment
amongst his neighbors, and being denounced
as supercilious and reserved.
Notwithstanding the bright, clear, moon
light night before ihanksgiviiigda), we
had turkey at our house last 'lhursdaj, and
all the delicacies of the seasoning. Including
a great outlay of salt and jiepper. When
we go Into a thing at our place, we never

turkej I met with no opposition. Instead,
in) parents gazed at me with startling fond

There Is a wide difference between liver
and turkej, and I felt confused. In select

and all the bom's removed. You don't have
to pa) attention to its age or sex the
beef attends to that himself.
Itut picking out a turkey is
a difficult and more delicate matter, and
savors of brain work. I have picked m-inv
a turke) but alwa)s with mj teeth and
never with mj perceptive faculties.
Finallj I came to a man in market who
took the paier. I was glad to sec him 1

with the cool reserve of an old timer.
The man nodded.
"Good. 1 suppose?"
"Melt in your mouth."
I replied, coldly, that 1 ' was using my
mouth for other purposes at present than
melting up old turkeys. He laughed and
said he knew a blast furnace w here they
melted "pigs." I saw at once that the
man's tuikeys ought to be gixxl with such
a mental gymnast to raise them.

I started. That w as chea p cheaiier than

I saw it wouldn't do for me to think of
