The sneaker's tones were imimtient.

and dropped tears at the same time.

said a young gentleman, rising from the
sofa, where he had been partially reclin

at his ease.:- " I think I ehould wish the
same thing, if I were in your place," he
continued, carelessly. , 'Pon honor,

and the young man yawned, and looked,
at hifiwaitth- ,i i.-
" Ton are not going?" his companion'
inquired, as he stepped toward the door.
"Yes, .1 must. I. am already a fall
half-hour behind time, and my next pa
tient is two miles away. Pont fret" too
much, Lady Blanche. There's nothing
in life worth many tears I".
" That is the remark of a cynic, Doc
tor Drayton. " "' -r'l-

" God forbid !" was the earnest reply.',
" Bather sickness all the days of my life

- "Au revoir, then 1 If the illness were
only in my line, I'd have you well in a
jiffy; but who can minister to a mind dis

from a superfluity of funds t"
The words. were playfully spoken, a3
the whole -attitude 6f--the marfBeemed
the very personification of frank friend
liness; and the eyes of his companion
fell under the. intense: glance win ah
seemed to pierce her very sonl. and with
out a parting word she sought her own
room, and gave full vent to her emotion.
Blanche De Berri and John Dmyton
were distantly related, but had been ac
quainted for only a short time.. Blanche
was born in England, and educated in
Paris. : Her father, fust before his. death,
had written to' his cousin, Mrs. Drayton
(John's mother), - requesting that she
would take charge af hia daughter. ,This
letter was cordially responded to; and
few months afterward found Blanche De
Berri anlnmate of the pleasant home of
her father's old friend. .
Mrs. Drayton was very glad of her' so
ciety. She had but one child: and he
was .so devoted to his profession, that she-
saw very little of him; and consequently
an educated,' attractive,' sweet-tempered
lady companion was an exceedingly' valu-
aunyaoquioilion. t c.3, - , - f
Miss De Berri had been with her
friendj&vWb years when, her story opens,
and although she had not formally on
account: of her mourninsr entered art-
ciety, she had j nevertheless, made many
acquaintances, and, as it appears, had
been annoyed by more than one formal
oner oi marriage. - ....-
Mrs. Drayton had very innocently, but
indirectly, mentioned the fact of her
protegee's large fortune, and Blanche at
tributed the partiality indicated by these
gentlemen entirely to this cause.
"She's rather down in the mouth to
night, I take it," said John Drayton to his
mother, as he buttered a huge slice of

never knew how to be unjust before
and, another thing, I never knew you
could be coarse until she came to live
" Coarse, is it, mother f I guess you're
right there 1 : But that girl had a queer
effect upon me ; she has brought to the
surface a hundred traits I never knew
possessed, ' principal among which

mischievously. ' - -
" I won't mention it, mother. It is on
the dis list, and is very intimately re
lated to to disgust. Shocked again f
as his companion moved her chair away,
and busied herself in another part of the
room. " I guess Til drop in' and hear
her play," continued the gentleman, as
he folded his napkin. " I'll sit down in
the niche, and she'll never know I'm
" It is inexplicable to me how a man
can bear to listen to the music of
woman he is disgusted with 7" said Mrs.
Drayton, with rising color.
" Not at all. Here are three pictures"
y uennis on these very walls, and yet
yon dislike the man so that you never
ask him to visit you."
" I don't see the analogy, John." '
" It is another just such case."
Mrs. Drayton prepared to argue the
point, but the Doctor glided out quietly,
' and she knew that ho had stealthily seat
ed himself in a dark corner of the drawing-room.
Outside the stars glistened, and irom
the window at the intruder's right hand
the pale crescent shone with steady
promise. ' The scent of flowers from the
small" 'conservatory gave to the at
mosphere an. Ideal element, which! with

A few days after this, Mrs. Drayton
was called away most unexpectedly : to
Canada, by the illness of her sister. Two
months passedy and during this time Dr.
Drayton was alone, with plenty of time
to think. ' Never before had he been so
utterly wretched.- ' The light' had faded
from his life, and his.- existence had nar

A National Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving day to be -held on
( It iw ot until during the-war thai it
betjanre-custoniary for the-President of
the United States to appoint by procla
mation, a National-Thanksgiving day.
As our readers know, the celebration of
the day itself began in the very early
history of the Massachusetts Colony.
The first Thanksgiving' day was called as
a fast day, at a tune when the colonywas
almost starving, but was changed to a
feast day, and has spread from New En
gland westward and southward over the
whole land. ' For many- years'it was ap
pointed in the various States by the Gov
ernors thereof, and, there being no con
cert of action between them, would be
held at different dates, tuongh almost al
ways on a Thursday. An effort was
made to. unite "eh . oner day the' last
Thursday in November as the day of
Thanksgiving, and in 1859. thirty of the
.thirty-three States then existing held
their Thanksgiving holiday on that day.
'In 1863 President Lincoln issued his
first National Thanksgiving proclama
tion, and the custom of Presidential
ThshkscivinirB Tins since been kettt no,
. The National Thanksgiving day, ap
pointed by a Presidential proclamation,
is, however, by no means so new an idea
as is generally supposed, .. President
Lincoln was only following the example
set by President Washington, in the first
year ei- rreaiaency.-' washragtot
was inaugurated on the 4th of March,
1789. On the third of October of the
same year he issued a proclamation for

donble-reed organ, oompleto snd perfect in every respect,
ts combined a new instrument, the PIANO-HaRP, tbe
tones of which are prodnend br steel tungnea or bars,
rigidly set in steel plat?s affixed toasoonding-boz.ana
track by hammers, aa in tike piano-forte. The tones are
nf a pare, silvery, belMtke quiJity, very heantifTi) in com
Innation or alternation with the organ tones. The organ
may be at! alone, and is in Try reapect as complete
and perfect an oman as wirhiat the PI ANO-HARP, or
may housed with the PIANO-HAKP; the lattv maybe
wed separately or in combination with any or all the stops
of the organ, to which it adds greatly in vivacity, life and
variety, adapting it to a much wilier range of music.
Upon ita invention snd intnxiaclkm, al out a year
