dcnly there was a
rattling gobble from the horn of tho
machine, an answering gobble from
the throats of the turkeys, a cloud of
feathers In the air and the man at tho
wheel passed on with a backward Brin
at the fowl as it lay fluttering by the
wayside. "One more gobbler gathered
to the eternal roost," he chuckled.
From out of the long grasn that
fringed the wayside a man arose, lean
and hungry, and stood looking at the
?till kicking victim. Then he drew
a huge, old-fashioned silver watch
from his pocket and glanced at It.
"Just dinner time, and I haven't had a
taste of a turk in a year. Guess this
Is my luciky day," he soliloquized.
Then he picked up the bird and start?
ed for the brook near by.
He seated himself by the bank and
commenced dressing bis And, touring
handful.i of feathers to the winds,
feeling of the plump body with grins
of satisfaction. Then all at once lio
looked up. A sour faced man with a
big star on his coat was standing ovrr
him. "Come with me," he command?
"To where?" grunted Hobo Jim.
"To the place where all turkey
thieves should go?to the coop."
"nut I didn't steal this bird-"
Jim began, then stopped short. Ho
was staring Into the open countenance
of a disagreeable looking revolver and
he dropped his prey. "All right I'll
go," he said, sullenly.
? a ? ? ? ? ? ?
Night had smothered the country?
side and from out of it the snow was
coming down In hard, frozen particles
like sifted sands. Across the fields
the wind came nipping like a sharp
toothed terrier, and Hobo Jim glanced
anxiously about through the gloom
He had been released from the "coop"
only that day after two months of con?
finement for having been caught with
a dead turkey In bis possession, and
he shivered a bit beneath his thin
clothes as be hurried along the lone
road. To make matters worse he was
hungry, broke and friendless, and to
be hungry, broke and friendless upon
Christmas eve is hard enough luck
for any man. Then as he peered, he
saw through the darkness of the road?
side a glimmer of light that twinkled
before his eyes like a great star of
hope and he paused with his gaze fast?
ened wistfully upon it.
With a caution grown of long ex?
perience he passed ?juletly to the back
of the building and peered through a
window. He could see into the dining
room from here, and as he gazed and
sniffed at a crack deep within him his
stomach began clamoring like a fam?
ished wolf pack, for within a dozen
feet of him was a table piled high with
good things to eat while about it the
gorged family still sat nibbling.
"There Is enough left for a dozen
lunches, and still things to throw
away," he muttered as his eyes roved
over the board. Much encouraged -by
the sight .ie stretched forth his
knuckles in a timid tap, then putting
on his most woebegone face stood
awaiting his fate with a heart that
The door opened and a man stood
before it peering Into the darkness.
And as the lamp light from within fell
upon the hobo's cringing form, the
face of the one upon the threshold
darkened until It matched the night.
"So it is you?sneaking around here
and looking for more of my turkeys,"
ho said threateningly. "I have a no

i siitileniy, for onco more he was staring
j into the mouth of that MOM unplear,.
I ant looking revolver. "Oh, I'll go al\

Up the road he went hurrying, an

? et whore he had plung *d a hand for
| warmth his big, old-fanhioned watch
1: y ticking and his fingers closed
about It fondly. It was his only pos?
session of slightest value. Twnaty
? yeata ago It had buen ?slven to him
upon a Christmas eve?twenty years
ago In the days of his boyhood, and
he had carried It with him Incessantly
I throughout alt his wanderings. "I sup?
pose I could get the price of a meal
and a bed from that old ticker," ho
mused, then his jaw set. "Dut I
wouldn't part with It for its weight In
greenbacks. It ts the last thing she
ever gave me, and I'll hang on to it
if I hang for doing it I'll beg, starve
?yes, or help myself when nobody IS
looking before I'll part wilh It" He
shoved It deeper into Its place and
bent forward against the wlno.
1'ive minutes later he again paused
suddenly. By the wayside another
licht was shining, and with a quicli
glance up and down the road he stooc
listening. Nothing came to his ears
but the low growl of the wind and h?
he itated no longer. Sneaking Inte
the yard with feet that fell as softl]
as the snowfiakes themselves he one?
more peered through a window. Then
wan no laden table here, but instea?
he saw a bed upon which lay a whit?
tmee? boy with a woman close bosid
him. He put his ear to the pane an.

the stealth of a panther. A spare be

Ho was awakened and raised 1

had been an accident In the room,
serious accident as he soon gather?
for through sonio misfortune t
clock had been knocked from t
mantle and now lay a ruin upon t
floor. It was tho only timepiece th
had, and the woman was worry!
over It considerably, for she no loi

was time to give the boy his me

of the medicine was a very import;
matter to tho sick one. "That's kl
of tough on th?: kid," thought I
hobo from his hiding place. But
was no fault of his and anyway
had troubles enough of his own.

hour all had been still as a cave

been bad business. For a full min?

for the second time that night he
chuckled as his hand wandered Into

drew It, and stretching forth a long
arm slid the big silver watch Into
the hanging stocking.
Along the black road Jim went
hurrying, hunger gnawing at his stom?

than ever. In one hand he held the

Some Cause for Rejoicing.
In addition to the general occasion
for thanksgiving, every lito lias Its
own joys and every soul its own de?
lights There are many who appear to
be barren of rejoicing, sonic into '
whose homos calamity hus come and
from which have gone those whose
faces were the love lights of the do?
mestic circle. Hut even here may be
found some cause for rejoicing, and,
In any event, a reverent faith may
take up the triumph of the uncrushed
spirit of Job?-'Though he slay m??,
yet will I praise him." God does not
willingly afflict the children of men,
and when the mlsfortun? s come he \
stands ready to comfort and to protect.
