Father Fall From Chair While Re counting Family's Blessings. George Douglas Keen, nu account ant employed hy the Hush Terminal company, sat dowu to his Thanksgiv ing dinner at his home, i!X) Twenty eighth street, Brooklyn, at 4 o'clock last Thanksgiving day. Hefore him was a large turkey, and seated about the ta ble were his wife, Anna, and his three children Douglas, eight years old; Al va, five, and Gordon, three. Great preparations had been made for the dinner, and .Mr. Keen felt sat isfied with the outlook across the ta ble. It was a holiday. The wind out side was cold, and the warmth Inside was all the more genial. "Well, I guess we have a little some thing to be thankful for, Mrs. Keen," said the head of the house. He helped his wife, his children and then himself. Then he sat down and put a piece of turkey in his mouth. "Yes." he went on, "I guess, taking everything altogether, we have" Then he fell out of his chair dead. The doctor said It was heart disease. Italy's Thanksgiving Day. A vintage festival Is about the near est thing the people of Italy have to a Thanksgiving day, but the two things are the same In spirit If very different In detail. At these festivals a primi tive interchange of labor takes place. Everybody helps everybody. Xo wage Is given. This man's vines facing full south are forward, another man's vines are backward. I'rom all the hill sides around the peasants flock to each vineyard as needed. Occasionally an Italian will do a lot of work In a day. But he will not hurry. He is making love meanwhile to the girl who works with him. A Polar Thanksgiving. Robert E. Teary, U. S. X., contem plating the coining Joys of Thanksgiv ing "fixings," was moved to tell of the way he spent the same day two years ago. "We were then within less than .WO miles of the pole, and of course the usual arctic weather prevailed," he gald. "Xo, we had no turkey for our dinner that day, but we made out very well with n roast of musk ox ami some canned plum pudding, which we took along on the Roosevelt for just such occasions. That comprised the total of our menu." Five Years Without Thanksgiving. During the Revolution Thanksgiving day was held by most of the states every year, but after a general thanks giving' for peace In 1784 five years elapsed before President Washington proclaimed a day of thanksgiving for the adoption of the constitution. mm 'W' 6 i Our National Bird Hr JVIATO WjTEMAf.

Germany and Russia adopt the rath er sensible plan of appointing Thanks giving days when they have some spe cial reason for so doing, though Itus Hia hasn't had much to be thankful for In late years. In Hungary Thanks giving days or something analogous to them used to be common, but have now passed away, except on rare oc casions of national rejoicing. Then a horse race of a particularly exciting de scription takes the place that football occupies In the American observance of the real thing In the way of Thanks giving celebrations. Doubles the Number of Eggs. To be successful with poultry re ouires a great deal more careful atten tion than many are apt to think. The house should be large and warm. Tht fowls should have plenty of exercise, but, more than that, the fowls should be given as food what their nature de mands and what, if allowed free range they could procure for themselves "Page's Perfected Poultry Food" con talus these ingredients in a carefullj compounded ration. A. A. Olmsted ol South Newbury, Vt, has the following to say In regard to this food: "Wi have been for some time using yout 'Perfected Poultry Food' with suet good results that we thought It a prop er thing to tell you. It keeps our hens well and In good laying condition and we think, doubles the number of eggs Being in good condition, lice do not trouble." : Any one sending bis address on a postal card to C. S. Tage, Hyde Park, Vt, and mentioning this paper, will re ceive by mall, free, postpaid, a sample pnekage of "Page's Perfected Poultrj Food." The Book crap Not In Her Class.

SCORN Who are the nuu (hat sw.'J men most cispls- .""' Not they who. lil begot and spawned In sluune. Riot and rob and rot before men's eyes. Who basely live and, dying, leave no na me. These are the plu-ous refuse of mankind. Fatal the aseemlant star when tliey were born, Distort In body, starved In soul and mind. Ah. not for them the. t;ood man's bitter scorn !

Once when I was going out to Tlsit some friends. I told George, my negro servant, to lock the house and put the key under a certain stone near the stepR. He agreed to do so.
