? WATERLOO LETTE IL ?
Waterloo, 8. C, Dec. 1.?Thanksgiv
ing day dawned upon a world of love
ly white snow, making It altogether
Ideal and most forcibly reminding us
of our Puritan fathers and mothers,
when a beautiful covering of snow
moat invariably enveloped the earth
on Thanksgiving day, the two, In, a
way, being associated together, and
reviving memories of stories told us
by our old colored mammy of the
sleigh rides to the home of distant
neighbors, the large dining room,
.wanned by a crackling fire of huge
hickory logs in an immense fireplace
and the great table groaning beneath
its weight of roasted pig, pumpkin pie
and other declicious old dishes that
only our grandmothers knew how to
make and the danco that night, to
wlilch all the country-side came and
danced to the music of a "fiddle"
olayed by the hands, perhaps, of one
of the old darkey slaves.
The customs still cling to us, but
In a very Inslgnlflcnnt way compnred
to tho olden days. We can, of course,
return thanks in the true spirit of
.thankfulness, but those dear old cus
toms Of former days are past and can
neyer be recalled, except from mem
ory, which should be treasured and
retold to our children as a "miser
treasurers his gold".
