Speedily supplemented by a badge of
bis team's color, a hat band to match
end a cane with appropriate streamers.
He was about to spend his hist dime in
cWwfng Kim?, when the shop doors
opened and Tadpole appeared, a large
package In both arms.
They exchanged college yells.
"What have you got there?" asked
"H?ans," replied Tadpole. "They're
day. Shouldn't wonder If Mr. Daniel
would give them to that widow with
seven children that he told about."
"Gee whiz!" exclaimed Shrimp. "I
forgot about to-night." He looked
sheepishly at the little dime in his
band. "I've got to buy something for
ten cents," he sighed. "Can't you help
a fellow out. Tad ?"
Tadpole deeply pondered. "There's
rice." he suggested. "The Chinese live
on that, and I guess a few grains go
a great way."
Shrimp sincerely hoped that they did
go a great way after he discovered how
email a quantity his dime purchased
at a neighboring grocery store. And
that evening, when he saw the liberal
donations in the Sunday-school rooms
was a whole orphan asylum of them
"Yes." sighed the urchin, "but there
were thirty namrs on the list, and we
came at the tag an' 'cause we've
just moved here. I ain't complainin',"
he hastily added. "I got a lot of dandy
things?potatoes, onions, turnips, beans
and a Idg chunk of pumpkin ? but they
ain't turkey." lie blinked hard to keep
back the tears.
"I wouldn't cry about it!" scornfully
"Who's cry In'?" the urchin retorted,
stealthily wiping his cheek with a rag?
ged sleeve. "You wouldn't think It a
joke If you had to tell the kids. They're
been countln' the days for I wetk. and
they'll all be at the winder watchln'
"How many kids are there?" asked
"McKinley and Roosevelt and Vic?

"Who Is Chris?"
"He comes between me and the kids.

I spine and has to lie in bed all the time.
His heart's terribly set on I turkey."
"If I was rich," Impulsively ex?
claimed Shrimp. "I'd buy you one!"
As he spoke, In an absent-minded way,
he thrust hin hand Into his pocket. His
Angers touched something roun<l and
hard and smooth. No answering thrill
tingled through his being. Instead, a
peculiar weight seemed to fall upon his
bums. "But T can't afford it!" ho
snapped crossly, and turning on hi.**
heels, he walked away.
He hurried Into Market ?"treet and
came to an abrupt Standstill. On tbc
comer was a provision store, and in
front of it swung n huge placard with
gashing red letters.

At 2 o'clock Thanksgiving afternoon,
a boy sat on the top rail of a fence
near the park. The colors of one of the
football teams gnyly adorned ins hat
and his coat, and fluttered in streamers
from a cane held in one hand, while
on his knee rested a superb horn. Hut
there was a pathetic air of dejection
as his big brown eyes eagerly watched
bicycles and vehicles scurrying by to
the football grounds.
There was a whizzing sound; the
blast of u horn; college yells from
smaller boys' throats; a flash of red
down the road?-then an automobil*
came to a sudden halt.

familiar voice, and Tadpole stood up 01

Choose turkeys with white flesh and

be avoided, also those whose back and
legs bave a slight purple tinge. The

long as possible without acquiring any
taint. Iu cold weather It will keep
quite a fortnight. Draw it ?carefully.
Fill the breast with real forcemeat,
omitting the suet, and truss it into a
good shape. It will tnke from one
hour and :. half to two hours to roast;
and should be basted well with butter
or good dripping. It is well to cover
the breast with buttered paper or slit

an hour before it la finished. It may
be served with fried or baked sausages
placed around it. To make the gravy.
