T was growing
clark -when Miss
Martie, with her
basket on her
arm, came into
the corner mar
ket to buy her
dinner. The
basket was ab
surdly small, but
Miss Mattie was
litt lo herself,
and when she
set it on the
high counter
and stood blink
ing in the bright
light, the cali's head at her elbow
seemed to be grinning at them both.
"Well? Miss Mattie," called out the
market man, in his hearty fashion,
"I sec your mind is not set on a tur
key this time, but just wait till I start
this basket off for Cap'n Lawson's and
I'll show you the right thing-a
plump little duck I clapped into the
nate this morning, thinking to myself
that's the very moral of a treat for
Mles Mattie."
Miss Mattie looked embarrassed
and rubbed her forefinger uneasily
over a small coin that lay in the palm
of her hand under her glove. It was
a silver five-cent piece, and she had
taken it with much hesitation from a
little store of pieces, most of them
given her when she was a child. For
herself she could have got along very
well with bread and,tea, but somehow
it seemed a dishonor to all her happy
past not to have something special on
Thanksgiving; and so she lind a feel
ing of real pity for it, lying there
warm and snug in her palm, and so
soon tc go tumbling into tho heap of
clashing, jingling coins tossed about
by the butcher's greasy Angers, or
perhaps into the pocket of that hor
rible apron with blood-staius on it.
Miss Mattie shuddered, but quickly
recovered herself to say, cheerfully:
"Oh, thank you, Mr, Simmons; but
don't you think ducks aro a sight of
trouble, what with tho stuffing and the
roasting and needing to be looked
after and basted regular? I made up
my mind to something simple, and I
don't know anything that's easier got
or moro relishing than lamb chops.
Two lamb chops is about what I
thought of, Mr. Simmons. You know
thero's only me."
Mr. Simmons had not seen the five
cent piece, but he understood just as
well as if he had, and he begau to out
thc chops at once, talking all tho time
to relievo his own embarrassment and
assuring Miss Mattie that "if folks
only knew it, there was nothing like
lamb chops to encourage your appe
tite and strengthen you up all over."
"But you'll have to tako tln-eo
chops," looking curiously atthe money
Miss Mattie laid in his big hand, "or
I'll have to make change, aud chango
is scarcer than hen's teeth to-night.
You might have company unexpected,
you know, and an cxtry chop would
com'* in handy."
Miss Mattie laughed so genially
that the market man ventured to slip
a sweetbread and a bunch of yellow
celery into the basket on the sly. He
would have loved to put in the duck,
but that would have looked as if he
suspected her reason for not buying
it, and, bless you, he kuew better
than that. Some people have feel
ings, though their frees aro red and
their hands coarse and greasy.
Miss Mattie went very happily down
the street. She had lighted her lamp
before sho went out, and a cheerful
little ray smiled encouragingly at her
fis she came to the gate. All the
other windows in the weather-beaten
sid house were black and empty and
looked to tho lonesome little woman
ns if all sorts of hobgoblins might be
peeping out at her from the gloom be- !
liind them, for Miss Mattie's neigh
bors had gone away on a Thanksgiv
ing visit and taken the whole family.
kt least they said "the whole family,"
but at the very moment Miss Mattie
?aine to the gate ajnember of the fam
ily was huddled up in a corcor of the
doorway, cold, hungry and much per
plexed to understand what had become
sf all his friends and why, in spite of
bis pitiful plea, no one came to open
the door for him. He heard Miss
Mattie and ran hopefully to meet her,
limping as he came, for he had a stiff
"Why, Tommy Barnen. " said Miss
Mattie, stooping to pat his rou ;h yel*
low head, "you don't menu to say
your folks have gone off to Thftnks
giviug and left you beeind. Well, if
I ever! How dreadful-thoughtless
and you a cripple besides!"
Tommy kept on crying, but he had
his eye on the door while Miss Mattie
Aras fitting her key, and the minute it
opened he darted in.
"That's right, Tommy," said Miss
Mattie; "just make yourself at home.
You and I'll have our Thanksgiving
together; That extra chop will be
wanted after all, and I'm going to
make riz biscuits."
She put away her bonnet and shawl
and hung tho basket on a nail in tho
back-room without even looking at the
contents, though Tommy Barnes
watched her keenly with a shrewd sus
picion of something good, and a faint
hope which nothing in his past expe
rience justified that he might come in
for a share of it. Miss Mattie was ac
customed to being alone, and she
scarcely thought of Tommy, as she
trotted about, setting the sponge for
her biscuits in a pint bowl, putting a
little cup of broth on the stovo to
?warm for her supper, making her tea,
toasting her bread, and at last sitting
down by tho table in the little greer!
chair with a patchwork cushion. Up
to this point Tommy had sat quietly
by tho fire, having learned by many
severe lessons that little folks should
be seen and not heard, but when Miss
Mattie poured ont the savory broth
the delicious odor was too much for
his fortitude, and with ono bound he
sprung into her lftpi
i "Bless me," said Miss Mattie, "if I
1 hadn't clean forgot you, and you half
starved, I dare say. There, get down.
I never could abide cats arouud my
She put Tommy gently on the floor,
crumbled some bread into the bowl of
broth, cooled it carefully and set it
down for him to eat.
"It'? pretty rich for mo anyway,"
sho said, as she made out her supper
with toast and toa.
It was perhaps well for Tommy that
ho took an early promenade next
morning around the back yards of the
neighborhood, and secured several
valuable tid-bits, for Miss Mattie had
very little to offer him. She baked
her delightful little puffs of biscuits,
aud enjoyed them immensely, findiug
them lighter and more digestible with
out butter, She read a Thanksgiving
psalm and went about trying to sing
in a little chirrupy voice like a brown
sparrow. She brought in the small
basket and flushed over the unexpect
ed treasnretrovo, but took it kindly as
a bit of neighborly goodwill. The
sweetbread, white and plnuip aud nil
ready fol- cooking, reminded her of old
Bira. Morrison, jost beginning to sit
up and watch the people go by the
window. What a toothsome dainty
this would be for her, and what a de
light that she should bo able to take
it to her as she went to church, yes,
and some of the celery, too, for a rel
ish. The chops were transferred to a
plate on thc shelf, tho swetibread
wrapped in a fine old napkin and laid
back in the basket with tho best half
of tho celery, and the biscuits Miss
Mattie had saved for dinner.
"The cold bread will go just as well
with chops, ' she reflected, and pre
pared for church with a glow of hap
piness such as she had not known ina
long time.

r-Thoinas Sherwood,
. It helped to a real feeling of thank
fulness, especially when she thought
of old Mrs. Morrison, and how pleased
^he had been with the unexpected
gift. She laughed a little to herself
as she returned to her own door after
service, remembering how when Sally
Morrison had commiserated her on be
ing alone Thanksgiving Day, she had
assured her she had company invited
Ar-Tommy Barnes, from the next door,
who was spending a couple of days
with her, the rest of the family being
"I hope 't wa'n't a sinful untruth,"
she said, smiling at Tommy, who lay
peacefully sleeping on the braided rug,
"but if old Miss Morrison had set in
to have me stay to dinner, I shouldn't
a' known how to get away, and she is
suoh a talker."
With a long, clean apron over her
'best frock, Miss Mattie began cheer
fully to make her small preparations
for the Thanksgiving feast. She had
meditated leaving one chop for break
fast, but her walk and happiness had
made her hungry and she decided to
? cook them all.
i But where did she put these chops
-she was getting so forgetful-she
could have sworn she put them on the
shelf-could she have left them in the
basket after all? Her perplexed eyes
fell from the shelf to the floor, and
.there, just peeping from the wood-box
was tho plate, and two small, very
small, bits of bone, gnawed quite clean
and white.
'. Ungrateful Tommy Barnes, lying
there in peaceful slumber, with those
precious chops rounding out your yel
low sides, if justice had befallen you
then and there you might not have
.jived to steal again. But into the
midst of Miss Mattie righteous wrath
came the reflection that Tommy must
have been hungry, and the fault after
all was partly her own for putting
temptation in his way, "though how
anything could have been further out
of his way than that shelf, I don't
really see," she added, dolefully.
? At that minute Tommy Barnes
waked from his nap, transformed him
self into a camel, yawned in a fright
fully tigerish fashion, and proceeded to
sharpen his claws On the rug, the
sacred rug iuto which had been
braided some precious old garments
dear to Miss Mattie's heart. It was a
straw too much to havo insult added
to injury, and springing from her
chair, she cuffed Tommy in such
vigorous fashion that three or four
hearty blows found their mark before
the astonished sinner could withdraw
his claws and bound out at the back
door, loft ajar in tho search for the
chops. At that instant a resounding
knock on the front door sent Miss
Mattie's heart to her throat with a
sudden leap, as if justice were already
coming to take her iu hand for unrea
sonable cruelty.
When Miss Mattie was peacefully
pattering about, unconscious of the
cruel trick fate aud Tommy Barnes
had played hnr, Mrs. Deacon Giles
was surveying her husband with a dis
turbed and tearful face.
"You don't meau to tell me," she
repeated, "that tho minister's folks
aiu't comin' at all, and you aud me
has got to eat this big dinner alone?
Here, I stayed home from church to
tend to it. Oh, you needn't to look
as if you thought it was a judgment.
Josiah I wouldn't be such a hipper
crit as to pretend to be thinkin' of
spiritooal things when I was wonder
in' if Sarah Ellcu would remember to
baste the turkej'. Seems to me they
might let us know sooner."
"But I told ye, mother, it was a
telegram come just before church.
You can't regerlate telegrams like vue
weekly newspaper, or stop folks from
dyin' unexpicted."
"Then, why didn't you rush round
and get somebody else? Mercy sakes!
'Twon't seem liko Thanksgiving at
"Didn't seem to be anybody to ask
but old Mis' Morrison and Marthy
Ellison. I drove round by the Morri
sons, hilt the old lady was just having
something relishing Miss Mattio had
fetched in. They said they invited
her to dinner, but she had cornp'ny;
one of them Barneses next door."
"Fiddlesticks!" said the deacon's
wife, in avery disrespectful tone, "You
just drive straight back and bring
Marthy Ellison up hore to dinner.
Tell her I don't take any excuse, and,
if bho can't come otherways, she can
bring her cornp'ny along, though the
way them shif'less Barnesses impose
on her is a mortal shame."
Good Deacon Giles had learned
docility in many years of experience,
and the double knock at Miss Mattie's
door followed as quickly as could be
reasonably expected. Miss Mattie at
tempted neither excuse nor hesitation,
but accepted her good providence with
radiant delight.
"Mother said to fetch your cornp'ny
along," said the deacon, glancing
doubtfully about the'small room. "We
heard you had ono of tho Barneses. I
kinder hope 'tain't the cross-eyed ono
that stole my pears."
"Oh," said Miss Mattie, laughing
into tho little mirror, as she tied her
bonnet, "he's had his dinner and he's
gone out."
She didn't say that he had eaten
I hers also, but- at Mrs. Giles's hos
pitable table,- under the genial influ
ence of generous fare and pleasant
old-time reminiscences, she told the
story of Tommy Barnes and the lamb
chops in a way that made tho deacon
lose his*breath with laughter. And
when she was tucked into the yellow
sleigh for the rido home, Mrs. Giles
stopped at the door to say :
"Iputsome bitsof bones and things
in a basket under the seat for Tommy.
Takes a 6ijjbt of stuff to reely fill up a
eat fur 'nough to give his moral princi
ples a fair showin'."
Tommy was on the step waiting to
welcome Miss Mattie, which shows
his forgiving disposition, and, though
ho got as much as was good for him
out of the basket under the seat, Miss
Mattie very wisely conclndcd that the
mince pie, roast chicken and cran
berry sauce could hardly haye been
meant for his delight, so she locked
them in the cupboard, saying de
"This time, Tommy Barnes, I'll
give your moral principles a fair show
0 heart, Rive thanks for strongth, to-day,
To walk, to run, to work, to play!
For feasts of eye; melodious sound;
Thy pulses' easy, rhythmic bound;
Ton servants that thy will obey;
A mind clear as the san's own ray;
A life which has not passed its May;

Tho House wife's Holiday Plans?

so that the holiday will not find you in
the kitchen every moment or find you
weary from overwork. Pies, puddings,
cake and bread may be made two days
before the event; sweeping, dusting
aud decorating may occupy the day
previous, and the turkey or chicken
should also be cleaned and stuffed at
this time, in order to go into the oven
early the next day. Thia method
givgs a little time on the morning of
the holiday for the extra toilet and the
reception of guests. Boasting the
turkey and preparing and cooking tho
vegetables will take up the remainder
of the morning, so that no time can
really be found in which to prepare
desserts, etc. Garlands of evergreen,
dotted here and there with wild im
mortelles and pressed autumn leaves,
will brighten the rooms wonderfully.
This is easy work for the young peo

Potatoes as Cleansers.
A new uso for the humble taber has
been discovered. It will clean fabrics
/without changing their color. Baw
potatoes aro grated over clear water in
the proportion of two fair-sized po ta
toes to a pint of water. Grate till the
last bit of fine pulp has dropped into
the water, then strain tho mixture
through a coarse sieve into another
vessel holding tho same amount of
clear water, and let tho second liquid
stand until it is thoroughly settled.
Pour on the clearer part of tho liquid
and keep it for use. The soiled mate
rials are rubbed or sponged with the
potato water, then washed in clean
water, dried and ironed. The thick

Kern o yal of Stains.
Tho removal of stains from Lae linen
comes within tho province of the wait
ress who should attend to it before
sending to the laundress. The follow
ing specific directions for varions
stains, is recently given in tho valuable
"Waitress Course," at Pratt Institute,
Brooklyn, might with advantage be
pasted in every housekeeper's scrap
book, while copies clearly written
should be hung up in the kitchen or
laundry for weekly reference:
For fresh tea and coffee stains use
boiling water. Place the linen stained
over a large bowl, and pour through it
boiling water from the teakettle, held
at a height to insure force.
Old tea aud coffee stains, which have
become "set," should be soaked in
cold water first, then boiling.
For chocolate stains use cold water
first, then boiling water from the tea
Fruit stains will usually yield to
boiling water; but if not, oxalic acid
may be used, allowing three ounces of
tho crystal to one pint of water. Wet
the stain with the solution, place over
a kettle of hot water in th? steam or
in the sunshine. The instant the
staiu disappears, riuse well; wet the
stain with ammonia to coun^act the
acid remaining. Then rinse thoroughly
again. This will many times save the
linen, which is apt to be injured by
the oxalic acid. Juvele water is ex
cellent for almost any white goods. It
can be made at home or bought at any
druggist's. For wine stains sprinkle
well with salt, moisten with' boiling
water, aud then pour boiling water
through until the stain disappears.
For blood stains, use cold water first,
then soap and water. Hot water sets
the stain.
For scorch, hang or spread the article
in the sunshine.
For mildew, lemon juice and sun
shine, or if obstinate, dissolve one
tablespoonful of chloride of lime in
four quarts cold water, and soak the
article until mildew disappears. Binse
very thoroughly to avoid any chemical
action upon the linen.
For peach stains a weak solution of
chloride of lime combined., with . in
finite patience. Long soaking ie an
Grass stains may be removed by
cream tartar" and water. After stains
are removed, to keep table linen at its
best, soak in cold water until the dirt
is loosened, wring out and put in cold
water with shaved soap and bring
slowly to a boil. Boil twice rather
than rub, as the rubbing wears tho
fabric. Binse out the soap very care
fully, and be careful about tho bluing,
as much of the bluing in use contains
iron. If a -little stiffness is needed,
add a little, thin starch to tho bluing
water, or iron while very'damp, which
gives a fine gloss.
Thickened Cream-Blend oue table
spoonful of flour with oile of butter.
Pour on two cupfuls of rich milk, boil
ing hot, aud stir over tho fire until
creamy. Season with a half-teaspoou
ful of salt and a dash of nutmeg.
Chicken Hash on Bice Toast-Boil a
cupful of rico the night before, not for
getting the salt; put it iu a narrow
square pan and set in ice-box. Next
morning cut it in half-inch slices, dip
in melted butter and broil on wire
broiler to a delicate brown. Arrunge
tho toast on a platter and pour over
the whole a chicken hash made from
the remains of cold fowl.
Bye Shortcake, with Thickened
Cream-One cupful of rice flour, one
cupful of white flour, two teaspoonfuls

out half au inch thick and bake in a
hot oven twenty-five inimit?s. Tear

cream poured over.
Cassolettes of Shrimps-Stamp out
some rounds of bread, marking them
to three-quarters of their depth -with a
smaller cutter, and fry a golden brown.
Lift out the inner part, scrape away
all the soft crumbs and use the small

shelled shrimps (tho canned will ans

a tablespoonful of butter, a teaspoonful
of lemon juice, two tablespoonfuls of
sweet cream, a dp'di of cayenne and a
small blade of mace. Let this get very

Sight, Koaring and Smelling Ages Ago
and at the Present Timo
It is a very curious question, espec
ially if the question include the first
animals created as well as the first
men, whether there be any difference
between sight, hearing and smell In
'those early days and at the preset time.
Smell was one of the most important
senses then, for it aroused appetite,
enabled the animals to seek and find
their mates and to track their prey,
and lt gave them a warning of a foe's
approach, or presence. With a man
now it is of only third-rate or fourth
rate importance.
The organ of smell, among some of
the first creatures, was not near the
end of the snout, or nose, but near the
brain, and was well-padded or cush
ioned with fat, and protected by a ten
der skin, or by scales overlapping each
But It was not more keen or more
delicate then than it is now, especially
in our hunting dogs. Cats, too-and
these aro among the later animals
have this sense in great perfection. A
cat has what is called the homing
instinct, and if carried away from home
in the dark, it can return by precisely
the same road. It is said that this is
because every field, ditch, village or
house leaves its own odor in Just thfl
right order on the cat's brain, like a
succession of pictures, and the animal
smells its way back as we would see
The organ of smell seems to com
municate with tho memory, for the
scent of a flower will sometimes bring
back to a grown man the scene asso
ciated with it in his childhood, and a
thousand other subtile thoughts and
feelings, so that he seems literally
carried back into his past life.
The first creatures knew nothing of
fragrance. The sweet-smelling flowers
were not then in existence; besides,
their brains were too small to enjoy
the delicate pleasures of sweet odors.
Hearing was comparatively poor
with the first animals, for often an
external ear was lacking. The out
side ear not only protects the delicate
nerves within, like a hood, but also
gathers or collects sounds. A man of
defective hearing instinctively puts
his hand behind his ear for this pur
pose. Birds that have no external ear
can easily be surprised by night and
taken, while their acute vision shows
them every movement by day.
The savage races had little idea of
music. They liked noises as children
like drums and horns. The savages
on the Midway Plaisance had great
delight-in their native music, which
was discord to our ears. It required
larger brains and finer training to have.
the full delight in melody and harmony
that our musicians possess now.
Tue eye also, in the gigantic crea
tures of carly periods, was sometimes
rudimentary, though again it was of
large size and protected by a ring of
bony plate instead of the lovely silken
eyelashes that protect and adorn the
human eye now. In some of those
lizard-like animals that burrowed in
the mud there were three pairs cf
eyelids, one of them transparent, so
that thc animal might see through it
It is said that early writers, like
Homer, speak of very few colors,
chielly red, or "purple," as they called
it then.
Enoymont of beauty, of graceful
curves and lines and proportion or of
harmonious and v; ried colors and
their delicate tints, belongs to a later
state of cultivation, a more developed
brain, than most of the carly races
knew.-Philadelphia Times.
