that hhu was pretty, nml had known it since
she w as three years old, und never hesitated
to indulge her taste for pretty things by
looking at her own image whenever oppor
tunity offered for doing so. At the pres
ent moment, however, she seemed to derive
I mt little consolation from the reflection of
her small, well-made figure, attired, us it
always was, in the trimmest and daintiest
of costumes, or from the well-set head, on
which nature had conferred "a turn1 no ir

Kitty." she said; "but Olilv llimn condilion

"Oh, you cms, old aunty!" cried Kittv,
lifting her he.nl defiantly ;' "to worry nie

I'm sure I'm M iy well'as I am; and you
wouldn't be half as wdl off without nie,

"Hut 1 idiall not be here always, Cather
ine," was her aunt's ginve reply.
"Now, Aunt Rachel, don't be a wet
blanket," said Kitty, throwing her arms
round her aunt s neck, and drawing the
placid face down to be kissed, "ami I'll
talk about R iy just as much as you like. I
know he's a splendid match; and, as old
Keziah says: 'his wife is certain to be hap
py, he'd make such a good provider.'
Rut then, you know, Aunt Rachel, if I mar
ry Roy I mustn't dance, and I mustn't
flirt, nnd I mustn't have a good time at all.
What's the use of living if you can't have
'a good time.' It really is very prosy of
R"y," she continued, as iier aunt made no
reply to this flippant speech, "to be m ex
acting about litihi things. He knows that

"Well Kitty," replied Aunt Rachel,

jumping up and dancing about the room,

And iho throw lier arms round her aunt'g
neck, and kissed her audibly and emphati
cally at leant half a do.en tunes.
Hut Aunt Itiichnl had made u,i hor mind
that Kitty "ought to be talked to," and
when that venerablo spinster's mind was
once firmly and fairly made up, it took
more than even Kitty's coaxing ways to
undo tho little parcel.
"One word more, darling," ho said, as
Kitty finally released her from her explos
ive embrace, and turned round to leave tho
room. You'll give up that party tomorrow
night, won't you, deart Remember it's
Thanksgiving-day, and such a thing was
never heard of as going from home on
Thanksgiving-day, Kitty. I can't think
whatever put it into your head to want to.
"Why, nuntv," replied Kitty, sinking
down again nt her aunt's feet, with her eye
brows more puckered than ever, and a dark
cloud of discontent settling down upon her
features, "it will be the very last chance I
shall have to dance this winter. The Mer
ediths goto town on Friday, and then Roy
can havo me all to himself for eight dreary
months. Come, darlingest of aunties, say I
may go." continued the lively girl. "I'll
be here all day, you know, and I'll talk to
old Uncle Zeko and Aunt Charity, about
the coops and tho turkeys, and I'll repeat
the longer aud shorter catechism entire to
1'arson Trip, if he likes t J have me. and I'll
crack nuts and pop corn with 'lliah and
'Kiah Pomeroy till their heads aro fairly
turned round on their shoulders, and I'll
eat all I can. and a great deal more than I
ought, and I'll try to make tho old fogy fes
tival as pleasant as ever I can, aunty, after
the most ancient and orthodox models; but
I must go to the Merediths' German after
they are nil gone, Aunt Rachel. I must

I that would keep you, Kitty, as you very
well know; but Roy objects so strongly,
and you know, dear, you do flirt with Rus
sell Meredith rather more than is suitable
"Now, Aunt Rachel," exclaimed Kitty,
the sunshine returning to her bright, girl
ish lace, "consider Thanksgiving as already
begun, if you please, and the reign of char
ily and good will established. Don't let
your dear old heart be anxious. I'll make
it all straight with R'y. And now I really
must go and look after poor old Keiah,
whose astounding performances in the way
of pies mid cakes are all artistically ar
ranged oi, th" dresser shelves, waiting to be
admired. They really are the most won
derful structures, aunty, and would do
credit to a Parisian chef in outward adorn
ment as well r.s in what Keziah calls their
'relishin' flavor.' I am to have the honor
of decorating the large almond cake with a
motto in pink ami white caraways, the
motto to be left to my selection. What
shall it lie? Not 'Waste not. want not;'
that's too mean. Let me see: 'Indigestion
waits upon excess,' would be a friendly
warning don't you think so?" And be
stowing another stifling caress upon her
aged relative, who was now fairlv van-
i (tiisln'd and utterly hopeless, Kitty Somers
! lin-relied triumphantly out of the room.
i It was in the long, !ow -drawing room of;
j Mis Rachel Somer s house at Newport that

herself and her fair niece took place a

generations of th-. .Siners family for cen

their s-r.l u;on the s.-a-giit island, and
elected to hold their revels there. In that

In:lJ,v brilliant entertainments which had
been given during the previous summer,
and of which Kitty h id leeii the bright,
particular star, that she had first met Roy
Campbell. Attracted at first by his mag
nificent physique, she had been repelled on
a closer acquaintance, by his cold and dis
tant manner, and again piqued, by his non
chalance and apparent indifference to her
cuiimi. io puiuiig innii je-r very iiest pow
ers of fascination to entrap him. From that
time there hail been but little peace by day
or rest by night for either Roy Campbell or
i. my nuiiits. tine perpetual skirmish ami
conflict had been going on with themselves
ami Willi ciicJi other. A steady, resolute
determination on his part to resist the spells
of th" enchantress and laugh her witcheries
to scorn an equally strong determination
on hers to briiur the scoffer to her feet.
while she escaped scot-free herself had
ended, as such conflicts always must, in the
complete subjugation of tliem both, and in
a lornial proposal from Mr. Campbell to
Mi-s Rachel Somers for her neice's hand.
So niatti rs stood on the eve of that Thanksgiving-day,
which was destined to he the
turning point in Kitty Sumer's life.
The morning of the great Puritan festi
val dawned with that soft mist over the
landscape which belongs to Indian sum
iner in all parts of America, but which in
Newport mingles with the lea-fog, and pro
duces a luminous haze through which all
objects take a golden tinge.
Kitty was up and in the kitchen at what
she called the "screech ot dawn," assisting
old Keiah, in her preparations for her pon
derous feast; for there was not only the
ponderous feast; for there was not only the
family dinner to prepare that day, but ar
rangements to be made to supply twenty
four of Miss Raclwel's pensioners with a
turkey, a form of cranberry jelly, and a
punipKin pieeach. These kitty never fail
ed to put up and distribute with her own
hands, accompanying each gift with some
kind inquiry or merry jest, which added
tenfold to its value, then, her morning
duties ended, Kitty walked demurely at
Aunt Rachel's side side to the the place of
worship, having first donned her most be
witching "toilette," wherewith to distract
tne minds and ensnare the hearts of all the
youthful niembersof the congregation, both
male ami female. Morning service over,
no time was to be lost in (UTiinging the
abundant m luxurious repast upon which
K 7.iah had expended her best skill, for the
distant branches of the Somers family who

All day Kitty was in her brightest and
most sparkling moist, and as Hoy Cainnbcll
who had been admitted to the family
gathering watched her litho figure flitting
from I'neLi Zekn in Aunt f'liarltv ami list
ened to the merry ring ot her voice as she
laughed and coquottod with the younger
Ponieroys, ho was more than ever impressed
with the versatility of her rare gifts, and
tho impossibility of ever concentrating
them upon one object in life. At last, how
ever, the festivities of tho day wero over.
Every ons declared thnt it had been the
most delightful and wonderful Thanksgiv
ing they liad ever known, and 'Itiah and
'Kiah oiwnly expressed the hopo that thty
might "miss the boat, and havo to stay all
night" an observation which caused Kitty
to flit Bilently out of tho room and put the
hall clock thirty minutes forward.
Then she and Roy accompanied the fam
ily party to the end of tho long pier, and
after dejiositing tho ciders in sheltered and
comfortable seats, waved a not very melan
choly adieu to them from the shore.
'Thank goodness, that's over!" exclaimed
Kitty, as the boat pushed off into the blue
waters of the bay. "I've been so good to
day that I'm sure I deserve seme reward."
"Which you arc going to havo immedi
ately," replied her lover, looking down ten
derly into her upturned eyes. "Wo have
still an hour of daylight- quite loi.g enough
to walk to the cliffs and watch the fog
coming up over the sen."
"Yes," said Kitty, with a weary sigh; "it
will rest mo more to sit there than to go
back home. Aud I must get up a little
spirit and color for the dance to-night."
Roy lampbell made no reply; it was
early days yet to censure or admonish, and
although his mind was unalterably fixed
upon keeping Kitty at homo that night, yet
he knew her well enough to usn some tact
ami diplomacy in carrying out his determ
ination. They walked on for some minutes
in silence, glancing in from time to time at
merry groups gathered around humble
boards, until they reached at last the bnnd
avenue which opens upon the clitls. Hete
Kitty ran lightly Jorward, skipping lrom
rock to rock, until she reached a jutting

face, waving her hand triumphaatlyti) Ror.
who was some distance behind. Her lovtr
thought he had never seen her look s
lovely as she did at thnt moment, and lot
an instant his heart relented, and he ques
tioned whether it were worth while to brin
a cloud over the brilliant beauty 0,' thai
face by opposing her childish w ishes. Am',
then the recollection of Kitty's wild and
reckless spirits in scenes of gayety rosn
before his mind, and with it the image ot
the wily, smooth, insinuating Russell Mer
edith, who had la-en his hated rival during
all the previous summer.
"Isn t it lovely? ' exclaimed Kittv, as Iut
lover came up and sat down 011 the rock
beside her. "Isn't this salt breeze, with
just a souiK-on of fog in it, delicious? It
puts new lite into one's veins."
"And it shines like diamonds in vour
hair, Kitty." said her lover, gazing with
undisguised admiration at the abundant
tresses, in w hich the sa'.t drops gleamed
and glistened, and then at the brightness
of the cheek and lips, whiih the breeze had
freshened, without deepening the bloom.
"My darling," he added, drawing nearer to
her, and taking one of her hands, which
lay idly in her lap, "I have brought this as
a pledge of the eternity of the Wml w hich
binds us together to-day. Will you wear
it always for my sake?'1 And as lie spoke
Roy slipped upon her finger a hoop of al
ternate opals and diamonds of great size
and brilliancy, and held it there, waiting
for her reply. Rut Kitty's eyes seemed to
be searching for the coast of Spain, so fixed
were they upon the most distant line of
ocean while the steadily increasing fog cn-
aiileii lier to see. "Kitty dearest." contin
ued her lover, "will you promise to think
of me and love me, just n little, when you
wear this ring?"
"It's a great ileal too costly and gorge
ous," she exclaimed at last, with her usual
impetuosity, and bursting into a shower of
tears as sho spoke. "It looks like a badge
of slavery. '
Th'- words had no sooner passed her lips
than Kitty was sorry that she had spoken
them, so intense was the look of pain thnt
passed over her lover's face.
"Forgive me," she said, putting her hand
into his again : "I did not mean to hurt
you: but indeed, Roy, this ring is a great
deal too handsome for a poor girl like me
'Nothing can be too handsome for you,
dearest," was the lover-like reply. "See, it
has the date. 'Thanksgiving-day, 180:J'
the happiest day of my life, Kitty, so far.
You'll give this day entirely to me, darling,
will you not?" he added. "I don't wish to
be exacting, but I couldn't bear to think of
you away trom me to-night."
Kitty colored and hesitated. She loved
Roy Campbell fervently for there was
depth as well as sparkle in Kitty's efferves
cent nature but a perversity and obstina
cy, with which Aunt Rachel had vainly
battled during her childish days, made it
hard for her to give up what she had once
set her mind to do. She was young, too,
and scarcely understood the importance
that her lover attached to this one act of
submission on her part; nnd so she pouted
a little, and started on her homeward way
with the ring still upon her finger, and a
strong spirit of insubordination striving for
tint mastery within.
"I shall see you this evening, shall I not,
dear.'"' said Roy, as they stood on MissSom
ers's steps. "Promise, me that I shall,
"No, I won't promise," replied Kitty,
angrily; "it's unkind and unreasonable,
and I'll promise nothing."
As she spoke Ke.iah opened thi! door.
Roy Campbell raised his hat. Kitty smiled,
and waved an adieu. And so they parted,
with a love stronger than death tugging at
their heart -strings, and yet with n settled
pui pose on both sides to part rather than

and excited, from the ball that night, her
hands lull of flowers and ribbons the tro
phies of her evening's triumphs there was
an ominious stillness and darkness in Aunt
Rachel's little parlor, which struck like a
chill to her heart.
Miss Rachel, contrary to her usual custom
was still up, and sitting with her liible open
on her knees, ga.lng gloomily into the em
bers of the wood lire which wen- glowing
on the' hearth. There was no smile of
welcome on her face as Kitty entered, and
her voice was inexpressibly sad ns she
pointed to a letter which lay upon the table
anil said :
FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 29, 1878.
"Mr. Campbell has been hero this even
ing, Catherino, and left that note for you.

Kitty's hand trembled, , aud ! her heart
sank, as she tore open the envelope, ami
read the following lines:
"I m here, and find yon gono. Aftor what pann

"Thoukith!ng day, "It. C."
Three years have passed since Roy Camp
bell and Kitty Somen parted years which,
in their flight, have touched tho brilliant,
petulant child with the barbed arrow of
sorrow and distipixiintnic-nt, thus maturing
and developing her character into subdued
and thoughtful womanhood. During all
that time no tidings had ever reached Kitty
of her absent lover; and after wearing his
ring for two years, she had put it one day
into Aunt Rachel's hands, with a great
bunt of tears, and said, "I shall never see
him again, I know. It is all my own fault,
and I have no right to wear his ring. Keep
it aunty, nml send it back to him when I
nm dead." And then Aunt Rachel had
folded the poor child in her motherly arms,
and comforted her with that silent sympa
thy which, from her earliest years, had
never failed to calm Kitty's stormiest moods.
And, now, on the eve of another Thanksgiving-day,
Kitty sits in the very spot where
he saw her first alone, for Aunt Rachel
tho beloved friend, companion, guide
has passed away forever. No more encour
agement from those loving lips no more
tender admonition from that soft low voice
no more firm but gentle guidance
over the rough places and through the dark
valleys of her life's journey. Aunt Rachel
is gone, and Kitty, as she bows her head
upon her clasped hands, weeps as if her
heart would break. So she continued to
weep, violently aud spasmodically, until the
overburdened spirit had, in a measure, re
lieved itself; and then she raised her head,
and the tears still dropping slowly and si
lently on her black dress, tell to speculating
011 the problem of her future life, and how
it was to be endured alone. Alone alone
the word had a terrible significance to
Kitty Sonu-rs's loving heart, and it took
all her newly acquired fortitude nnd self
control to reconcile her to the idea of a
long life in that desolate mansion, with only
tr. . - 1 1- -1 . . .
iveziau tor consoiiuion aim companionship.
"Oh, Roy!" she said. "My first and only
love! Ii I could but bring you back again,
how patient and submissive I would be!"
And then she shuddered ns she glanced
round the large, desolate risim, where the
twilight had already deepened into night
and the flickering fire-light brought out
strange shapes and shadows on the wall,
und buried her face in her hands again.
"Why doesn't Ke.iah bring lights?" she
exclaimed in a loud, petulant tone. "She
can't surely be making preparations for to
morrow. I can never, never keep Thanksgiving-day
"Shall I alter the inscription on the ring,
tlu-rj Kitty?" said a h.w voice close at lu-r
side; and the next moment Kitty was
clasped tight against Roy Campbell's
"Oh, Roy! dear Roy!" she exclaimed, as
soou ns she could speak; "how good of
you to come just as I was ready to die of
loneliness and despair! Did you know how
I had missed you and longed for you
through all these years, aud how glad, how
unutterably glad, I should be to see your
dear old face again? Tell tne what brought
vou, dear, and how vou happened to arrive
just on this very night, when I wanted you
"It was the ring, dearest." replied her
lover, in rather a reproachful tone. "Surely
you knew that I should come as soon as I
rectivedit. I was away in Japan. Kitty,
mi l have traveled day and night since the
m-uncut it was put into my bands."
"The ring!" exclaimed Kitty. "How in
the world did the ring travel after you to
And then, as the truth flushed upon her
mind, she bowed her head, while the tears
streamed through her clasped fingers, and
cried. "Oh, aunty! dearest and best of
friends, even in death your love watches
over your child, and brings her back her
lost happiness again !"
So Kitty kept her second Thanksgiving
in meekness and lowliness of spirit, and
with a glad and thankful heart. And dur
ing all their marriage life neither she nor
Roy have regretted the lesson of mutual
concession and forbearance which the trials
of their Thanksgiving taught.
The Phvsiomhjy ok thk Livkii. The
liver is the largest secreting organ in the
human body, and the bile which it secretes
is moro liable to vitiation nnd misdirection
from its proper channels than any other of
the animal fluids. Luckily for the bilious,
however, there is an unfailing source of re
lief from liver complaint, namely, Hostet
ter's Stomach Hitters, a medicine which for
over a quarter of a century has been achiev
ing thorough cures of the above mentioned
ailments, fever ami ague, dyspepsia, Imwel
complaints, rheumatic and kidney affections,
and disorders involving loss of nervous vigor.
It Is, moreover, n preventive of malarial dis
ease, and affords protection to thousands of
persons residing in districts of country
where that dire scourge is prevalent. As
a remedy adapted to medicinal requirement
of families, it is supremely desirable, and
ns a means of lortifying a debilitated sys
tem, it is thoroughly to be depended upon.
