Editor IIerald: Thanksgiving has

n all humility of my heart, 1 thanked my
Heavenly father that I had boon sparod
nolhoryear. Among tho many things
for which I offered thanks was that I had
not been itnotherod to death in tho mine
by tho blunder of somo ono; that I had
tho good fortune to not bo one of tbo un
lucky number who subsisted on rats for a
number of days, while their more forlun-
ato brethren wero drowned ; and ospccially
was I thankful that I had not been called
upontosorvo on a coroner's jury. I also
offered thanks for tho prospects of a bmy
coal trade this winter; and, that night,
while others woro roveliug in suppers and
festivals, I, through tho Lord, on my
bended knees, said I thanked tho Lord for
the hope that, with tho prico of coal ad.
vancing this wintor, our hard earnings
would not bo taken off in percentages,
Though I maintain that tho mini ra havo,
n taxes, contributed moro than their pro
rata share towards maintaining a hospital,
jot I said thanks for tho cxhtenco of ono.
I felt constnined to bo thankful tbat I was
not obligated to pay moro for a ton of
ctal hero at tho breaker than tho people
in Now l'ork and l'hiladolpbia are obliged
to pay. In conclusion I gave special
thanks for tho electrio railway and tho
IIkrald, a papor that does not kick tbo
workingman in ono ifsue and pat him on
the sboulder in tho next. But tho hour it
gotting lato. I must retire. I havo no
coal ready for the morning. His lordship

and, liko all other brutes, he will bavo no
compassion on the old man.

To get in tho company of half a di zen
veterans of the civil war, on a night when
tbo weather is too cold and otherwise disa
crecablo for street travel and whon tho
chcorful rays from a stove heaped with
blazing coals cast a brilliant hue upon tho
glasses held in tho hands marked with the
emblems of hard toil, is a treat. Host of
tho vets in town are poor story tollers o
war reminiscences until woll pumped and
well, until that which drives dull caro
away has been woll sampled. Then the
stories flow. Thero was a group comfort-
aMy seated in a woll known placo tho othor

littlo boozy tho other day," said ono, "and
said hi regiment was nover stam; cded

I asked him if ho recollected tho second
battlo of Bull Kiin, and ho said ho did, and
ell too. I then told him of how his
regiment becamo demoralized and after
wards camo inside of a now line of butt!

"I romombor," said another, "whon th

steppod into thu creek and waded it
briskly as if they wero walking on dry
land. Onn. McClolIan stood by as troops
passed and inquired of Gen. Cake, 'What
regiment is that?' When told it was th
06th Pa. ho said, 'I thought tlioy woro tho
bravo coal crackors.' "
A third vet contributed this; "I tell
you, boys, many a BCtiomo was planned to
get homo on furlojgh or discharged. I ro
mornber wo had marched through Virginia
so often that tho soldiers of tho nrmy ol
tho Potomac became discouraged. Ono
beau'iful moonlight night, near Thorough

reclining upon tho grass, talking and think,
ing of home, be proposed a plan to get
homo. Tom was tired of tho Army tired
tramping over tho same ground so often.
He suggestod rubbing our joints with blue
ointment and then wetting them. This
would givo us rheumatism and led to our

'The fraternal spirit burnod in tho

"But, boys," exclaimed a vet who laid
aido bis pipe, "Some fellows managed to
