I Jamie's Thanksgiving.
M. Aeice J3. Patterson.
v A cold north wind blew wearily
all day and the dead leaves dan
ced and played with the wind
unmindful of from whence they
came and whither they goeth.
kh 'The dark clouds moved Nhurriedly
;across the sky until amassed in
v eiling banks to the west and
i! . .South and there they lighted up
' brilliantly all purple and gold
x - and deep shades of red from the
i; rays of the lowjlescending sun.
jV Gray November days were ebb-
ing- away. There was but one
j " ' ' more day left and ere it passed
: she was making: most of the re-
, maining Tiourst in bleakest of
f -s winds.
This was the eve before Thanks
$ ".ty .giving day and gay crowds were
J. -v ; passing to and fro, defying the
- il-V winds that, blew, for. they were
ylj eaar to attend to Thanksgiving
Ooch," Ooch!" said Jamie as

him and fastened it with a ten-j
penny trail."- I believe this is!

V This is colder than the day little
;V'' Charlie died."
lr At the thought of his Jittle
':) . companion Jamie's eyes were fill
ed with tears and he posed a-
gainst the corner of the largre
. building until he ceaseJo weep.
''Charlies in ' heaven tioand he
h'as gold streets to walk on and
sells papers to Angels I guess."
I must sell all the rest of my pa
pers, I have one, two, three, four,
five, six, seven; only seven more
and its just half past five,"
,vBut I've gota spruce up a bit if
I -take little; Nannie to the church
to get some o' that krrkey and
cranberry sauce and all the good
things that the Preacherman was
w.ritin' on the sign board in front
of the Presbyter'in Church.' ' .
Jamie gathered his papers un
der his arm and started down his
beat, shouting "Evening News"
' "Tine ' ''Herald " but thinking
more about the good feast ahead
tfor be had two tickets and kntvr
he was sure of this dinner.
, Just as Jamie turned the last
corner on his beat he bumped in
to his new companion, Joe Burns.
tHello Joe;'' Hello Jamie;'' ltHow
many papers left?" ,
VOnly tive,,, said Jamie. ; x
VGee, but I wisht'.! was you,-"
said Joe, "Pve only sold three
and that's not enough to get me
a ticket to the church supper to
night' "Gee I'd hate to miss
that big turkey doin's." "Say
Jamie, I'd a sold all o' mine if it
wasn't for "Bully," he jumped
my beat. " ' cGee, I'd like to 1 ick
4 ' Just a little to short Joe,'"
said Jamie, 4Tm game but I
tiaihtbig. enough so I have to
lake all the bad things he says,"
"I 'aint much o' a fighter my
self," said Jamie, but if we'd play
dubbs on him we could have a
bully fight. " I'd like to get even
,on him for he gets on ?my run
sometimes, and then I 'ain't nev
er felt good to him since he licked
.Charlie j u s t Because Charlie
wouldn't give him the best of a
swap-on applec'ores and marbles."
Without further wordsvthe two
boys bounded toward 5th avenue
and to? an alley where Joe had so
shortly left Bully, but suddenly
halted at tht opening of the Al
ley for there they found Bully
scrambling for raisins which had
unluckily been spilled by the 5th
street grocery man.
'Hello Jamie and Joe," come
on down the Alley and let's swap
raisins for tickets to the Presby
teri'u supper tonight.' ' 'I'll bet
on it. J got a big thing to swap
on,'' showing his swollen pockets
to Jamie and Joe.
This invitation pleased Joe and
Jamie so the three' boys disap
peared down the, Alley and no
one witnessed the fight but ten
or fifteen minutes later they em
erged; Jamie and Joe exultantly
and Bully looking somewhat
worse for wear followed far in
the rear. He sat down on a box
at the corner grocery to eat the
remains of his spoils and study
over tlienly fight he ever lost.
Bis eulogies were phrased in the
News boys' vocabulary but in the
.finish he decided it were better
to let Jamie and Joe carry off the
honors of victory' if they would
not tell ato t the fight; for he
well knew all the boys would
laugh at his discomfiture. Jamie !
and Joe went on to their own beats
and each one so hap)y over their
victory that their shouts of "Eve
ning N.ews," "Times," ''Herald,"
could be heard far beyond their
It was growing dark fast nd

under his little bed a dust cover

she died. He took from this
treasured chest his one good suit
which'fieeded a visit to the Clean

shook it in the wind until it look

clothes gave his curly locks some ,
extra brushes and was ready for
the evening's pleasure'. He
quietly unlocked his tin box, took
from it the two tickets he had
spent two days earnings for and
