It wouldn't seem the same. . Bo T asked mamma what she thought, . When I wus uolnit to bed, Lastr-urht. The tar oame to hor eyes, Hal. then she nulled, and said : ! "Wa papa all wo thanked God' for, My darling; ehild, lal your? ' ' Have we not many blosslpirs'Stlu i.

That we hare now or we haei had Within tills present year, . To bios us and to make us f lad I -: And then decide, my dear, ; "If there's enough to make It seem Beflttlna: every way That we with very irratof ill hearts Should keep Thauksglviug Day." And so this morning T began To do as she had said;. ' And oh 1 how fast Thanksgiving things . Did come Into niy hoad. ' I wondered I had never thought Of all of thein before; I don't bellovo I ever could Forget thorn any more. There's mamma papa's gone away, Hut mamma's with us still; , And tlnre Is darling sinter May And little brother Phil. And little bnby brother, too tle's worth his weight In gold: And there Is grandma I dou't think She ever will grow old. And them Is aunty, and, besides, ' The other folks 1 lovo; I'm thankful that no more of them Have gone to Heaven above. Then I am glad that wo can scot 1'vo heard my mamma say That there are children who are blind. . I'm glad we're not tuut way. And I am very thankful, too, That wo are well und strong; My mamma knew a ludy once waa sick the wholo year long. And I have heard of children, too, Who could not run or wulk; And mumiia snys that tlmro uro somo t Who can not boar or talk. And then I thought, through all the year, What pleasant times we've hud. And how so many things huve coma To make us very glad. i And all the summer, evm-ywhore 8ttcli lovely things to see; And trees und hints and tluwers, that look bo beautiful to mo. Dear papa always loved the flowers 80 much when he was here; I'm sure I'll always think of hi in Whenever tlioy are near. But mamma says that up In Heaven They have more lovely flowers, And that they bloom there all tbo time. And do not dlo, like ours. I am so glad, for r'll bo Ho happy then, I know; I'd like to thank God Just for that, And I told mamma so. I told her, too, of all the thing . I'd thought alxnt so long. And that It seemed, because of them. 11 woum oe aiuiutti wrong If we didn't keep Thanksgiving Day, And that, tf papa know. He'd like It better If we did. She said she thought so, too. And then she cried a little tilt. Then wiped her eyes and smiled: (Mho looks so lovely when she smiles) And then she said: "Dear child, "You've helped me more than you can know, It shall be as you say; Though papa Is away from us, We 11 keep Thanksgiving liny." And then she took me In her arras, And held me very tight. And kissed me very fondly twice, Just as she does at night. r'unnv Msrelra. in iV. Y Indrpendrnt. INSECTS AS MIMICS. They Oftea Imitate the Color of Their Food and Hiding l'laces Why This Faculty Is Given Them, "Why, Cousin Helen! What do you mean by saying that locust is a mimic?" asked my little cousins, John and Lin coln. "Yes, ho Is a very good mimic, and so are all tho Insects in this case. Look at them, and I will tell you in what way I have seen them mimic. 'Insects have a power called 'mimetic,1 which enables them to mimic, or Imi tate, the substances which afford them food and shelter. They are mimics all the war from the larva state to the im ago, whether they are moths, butterflies, beetles, bugs, or locusts. In tho larva state some Insects are easily distill .guishnd from their food and shelter, but oftentimes they are not Don't you re ;member how when we went bug-hunting up in grandpa's orchard, we chased some white cabbage butterflies over the tomato bed, and you, John, found a brownish caterpillar on one of the plants? Then we hunted for more, and found one so much like the leaf in color that I almost took it in my hand before I saw what it really was. "When the insect is in its pupa state, it is as great a mimic as before. For then the cocoons and chrysalides, or anrollda, are of the some color as their "hiding-place. The cocoons and chrys alides we find hidden under posts, fences, stone, hanging from trees, etc., are of the same color . as the stones, .bushes, etc This light-brownish icecropia cocoon Is the color of the bush or tree on which it hung. Perhaps it ,was a barberry bush." This one isn't brown ; It's white," taaJd Lincoln. . . ' - " " . . " - ' ; "So It is. , It came off the top of a white birch tree, and so it imitated the "bark of that wood in color. I think that only in the imago state is the in jsect a mlmlo in thape. . Examples ot this kind are walking ' sticks and walk ing leaves. "One' day I was out on a specimen 'bunt with a naturalist on the banks of puck Prtnd, in FraminghCm, Massachu jsetu. I was a short distance 'behind when I heard her call me; o my hastening to her she showed me what I thought was a little branch in a tit cap. Just as I was going to ask what there was curious or interesting abont it, home little twigs on the side of the branch began to move, and I lmm diately thought it must be a walking tick, of which I had read, but never jnntil then seen. I believe my friend paid there were but three varieties of Jill lHsectnNorth America. t : "Any warm day in summer, when fun boys are playing In the yard or prchanl, yon can see tome very striking examples of tMsniimetio power; I moats' locusts. These locusts on tbu upper row bate wing-cases of a dusty, color.. I caught them one noon in the iniddle' of North street. When they wero rest ing I Could not' tell the' difference be-, tweeu them and the road, but as soon as they spread, their wings I could nee and catch them." . . , "Here's one till yellow." 1 f. "Yes; that one I found in a marsh down at Ocean Park, where all the weeds and the Soil were of a yellowish, hue. Just look at the difference be twocn tills and the iirst one. ) This one has white wings, with a black lino across mem; the body is white, an tne wing-cases look as if sand had been sprinkled over them. These came from the bench botween Old Orchard and Ocean Park. ... If their wings were folded it would be very dillicult to distinguish them from the dry white sand. I watched a long time one day to seo if I coum nmi any on the sanu, ana ire- auently I was astonished to have one y up in my face when I had just looked carefully over the place where it had been lyine. "Here is a Turner's butterfly. If some time In spring you should sue one of these on the ground and not know what it was, yon would be likely to sny, as I did the time I saw one: 'OK, what a pretty leaf with black lines on it!' anil you would be very much astonished, as I was, to see it fly away. " This Phllodice butterfly Is so vellow that if you were to see it on a dande lion you would be puzzled to know where the dandelion left off and the butterfly besran, or vice versa. If a Vanussa Antiope butterfly was on an apple treo (I have noticed they prefer russet apple trees), with Its wings closed, I could not tell which was the bark or which tlio tinder sido of the butterfly, wero it not for a slow, way lnr motion of the wings, as if It were fanning itself. "One day, whon I was hurrying up North street, 1 saw, as I thought, a brown leaf drop down at my sido from one of the trees. ' What a pretty leaf; oli!' and, running after a very pretiy butterfly, I waited till it settled, luit my hat oyer, and so caught it. Look at its under side, boys, and you will see it might easily bo mistaken for a leaf. "Those purplish, clear-winged, day flying humming-bird moths feed on the big thistle heads, and it requires 'seeing eyes' to discover them. " Beetles have this mimetic power to a great extent, but I have only a few to show you. This one looks like a little ball of dirt. Sometimes this kind of beetle is mistaken for a ball of dirt, and sometimes the dirt for tho beetle. . "I wonder if, when yon have been eating blackberries, you have suddenly noted a sharp, disagreeable taste in your mouth?" "I have," said John, "and a mighty disagreeable taste it was, too." "So have I," said Lincoln. "Well, perhaps you know, then, that you have eaten a blueberry bug. Ihis Is about the size, shape and color of a green blueberry, and if you were eating your berries in tho pasture, noth ing would be more likely Oian that you should eat some bugs, too. "I have only one more example of mimetic beetles here, and this is the painted clytus, which lives on the golden-rod. It is marked with green and yellow, thus mimicking the colorof the flower. "Perhaps you are wondering why in sect have this power? think that the Creator gave it to them so they might escape from enemies that were not bright enough to see through it."

Alaska's Roc rets Being Revealed by Con stant Research There arc indications that our Northern possessions, which have here tofore been practically a sealed book to tho people of this country, are to be come better known to us. The appoint ment of territorial officers for Alaska seems to have already stimulated re search and adventure in that hitherto unknown country, and there are very likely to be some very interesting, If not startling developments. A telegram received hero from the commander of one of the revenue vessels in those waters states that his vessel has just re turned from some explorations in what have been hitherto almost unknown regions of Alaska, and that the discov eries are of a very valuable and interest ing nature. A letter just received from San Francisco gives some particulars of the arrival of Captain Healey there from a tour with a revenue vessel Jn that section. He rescued a party of starving miners and the crew of a wrecked whaler far at the north, saving ninety-eight per sons from a horriblo death. Ho sent a boat a distance of throe hundred and fifty miles up the Kowgat Kiver, a stream hitherto little explored, obtain ing some very valuable Information about the country and the people, gath ering valuable specimens of minerals, plants and birds. lie explored and photographed a large and valuable island near Kogastoff, captured and destroyed a lot of liquor which whalers and illicit traders were preparing to sell to the natives, and finally made a trip far north to rescue the crew mentioned, encountering ice worse than any that Schley found in his trip north, and In spite of the fact that be waa twenty, three days in an almost constant fog, he dropped anchor within a few rods of tbo spot he had started to make on hearing of the suffering crew. It is ex pected that between the stimulated spirit of exploration that the appoint ment of these territorial oflloers has awakened, and tho reports ' of these officers themselves, tho people of this country will get within the next few months mora information about this distant' country than they ever had bo fore.

' ; HODGINS' HISTORY. They Thought Ha Had Boon Killed - by Indians. His Adventurous Wanderings In the We Daring Seventeen Tears, and Why ' He Stayed Away From the Maw York Village He Called Home. ' ' pT.Y.Bun. .: John Hodglns was born In Rye village N.' Y., thirty-two years ago. He weat frt school there np to his fifteenth year, an( all the residents knew him. He was verj strong for his age, and, being next to th eldest of eight children, it was decided thai he must begin. to help support the largi family. He was sent to Sing Sing, and ap prenticed to become a mason, like bis fath er. He worked steadily for a year, but bit master, an Englishman, treated him wltt great severity, giving him onlyenougt money to pay his board. He grew dls oouraged, and at the end of that time hi packed up his things and ran away tc Boston with two bricklayers. Hewrott home that he had been unable to obtain reg ular work on account of being an apprentice and asking to have some money senttt him. His father at once Inclosed the mon ey, but the letter came back to Rye un 0ened, and nothing more was heard Iron John Hodglns until two years after. Thei John Sunn, who had been his schoolmate went to New Orleans as an engineer on l steamboat, and saw him there; talked wltt him, and made an appointment, which wot not kept, to meet him again. When Dunn brought word to Rye that he had seen Johnny Hodglns It turnod the village upside down. Old friends cam constantly to see if Johnny had arrived and his mother spent hours talking tc the younger children about him and watching for him; but nothing furtbei was heard from him for years, until it was read in a newspaper that he bad bees killed by Indians in the Black Hills. Th father died believing that the son bad gone first, and, after the villago gossipl were through talking about poor Johnny Hodiclns' hard luck, the matter wai dropped. Only when the boys saw their mother weeping, without any apparent cause, tbey kuew that sho had been talk- 1 ing to some one who remembered her lost I son. Now Rye village Is excited once more ' about John Hodglns, and this time mors than ever before. The young loungers j on the platform of the railroad sta ' tlon never knew him, hut they have all beard about his being killed by Indians, and are much excited to bear that he has come home alive and well, without a scar of a tomahawk or scalping knife about him. A week ago, at seven o'clock in the evening, a tall man got off the east- bound train at Rye, and looked around in surprise at the new station and other Ira provements. The stranger stopped an old man, and, calling him by name, Michael Hubbard, asked him if be knew anything of the Hodglns family, who had lived in the village seventeen years ago. Hubbard laid that Mrs. Hodglns was living with her family on the bill. Thereupon the stranger began to weep, and struck out for the bill, but Hubbard, who couldn't go so fast, grabbed him by the coat tails, and said : "You're Johnny Hodglns." It was true. Michael had been a coach man when Hodglns was a boy, and used to let him drive his horses. They went up to the bouse together, and Mrs. Hodglns, who was coming In from the barn, saw two men standing at the gate, and heard one of them say: "Won't your mother be glad to see yen!" tine dropped everything she had in her bands and In a second bod her arms around her son's neck. John was intro duced to all bis brothers and sisters, and bis mother divided the time equally be tween hugging him and retreating a few steps to admire bini, or to declare that he was the handsomest son she hod. She was much amazed to learn that she was the grandmother of five boys, all alive and hearty, and that she bad a daughter-in-law, alive and hearty, too. John found things a good deal as he had left them, and there was nothing to feel badly about but the death of his father. His brother Thomas, two years old when be left, was now six feet high, and well pleased with the mason's trade, which his brother had discarded. All of his brothers and sisters were well, but his mother was the only one who knew him. As soon as the neighbors bad stopped pouring in he began to tell about his own adventures. From Boston he had gone to Bangor without hearing from home. He worked there at odd Jobs for a week, and then shipped to the West Indies on a sail ing vessel. Thence he went to New Or leans, where Dunn saw him; afterward to Bouth America with a prospecting par ky, who hunted around for a long while, and bad adventures enough to fill a book, 111 ot which Mrs. Hodglns Insisted upon bearing la detail. Tbey mode tome . money, too, and all iame back to this country. Meanwhile he rote home, but, probably through erroc in addressing, his letters were returned with the mark of the dead letter office, and te concluded that his family bad moved tway. When the travelers got back to Ibis country the oil excitement was at it height, apd they decided that oil specula tion would be the proper thing to swell 'heir savings Into fortunes. They tried It, lost all they bad, and disbanded. John Hodglns went to Erie, Fa., fell in love, and was married. That is where bis borne is low. During the Black Hills excitement is went out as a prospector and scout. He was with Custer, but had left him just in lime. He was shot at and hunted by the Indians, but got away with his life, and same back to prove to bis wife that any report that he was dead was a mistake. Then he gave op roaming, invested what noney be had and Is now working as con luctoronthe Philadelphia ft Erie Rail load. A short time ago he made np bit nlnd to hunt energetically for his family, tnd went to Rye, supposing that would July be the first step toward discovering If they were still alive. He stayed a week with his mother, and then went home to Brie. Mrs. Hodglns waa so nervous last night ibat she had to call her son Thomas to light the lamp. She said that she badnt been tble to compose herself since her son came tack. ' "To lnhik," she said, "that he's been so tiDch around the world, and it hasn't hurt , tun a bit. He doesn't drink a drop, and he .' frcninda me of his father every minute. He : kroke my heart when he went away, but sow he's back I don't care anything about , 1 ' " '7 1 ' r j - The Strong Prey on the Weak. '' The inhabitants of Sea Isle City were visited on Saturday afternoon by one of these lucky events which sometimes happen to dwellers by the mighty ocean. Innumerable quantities of weak fish were feeding and disporting themselves not very far out from the shore, when an immense school of blue fish, or snap ping mackerel, came rushing down the const with a speed of an express train. They spied their prey, and with almost human sagacity drew a half circle around the weak fish. When the latter saw they were pursued by their larger enemies, they struggled in every way to escape. The surface of the water was lashed into foam and many of the weak fish leaped into the air in their effort to escape from tho ravenous foe. The cir cle was closed in, and although some escaped through it, a large number were forced in toward the Dcach, and driven up on the shore by the snapping mackerel. Here they were gathered in, still alive, by the people who were at tracted to the scene. Some of the older Inhabitants say such an event has not happened at Sea Isle City for years. vamaen (a.

In a little Jobbing machine shop the proprietor and sole workman was sweat ing and swearing over the obduracy of a lot of very thin castings which ho was trying to drill for riveting, and to file for fitting. Some of the castings were very hard, and ground out and broke drills at a fearfulrato. Where the grindstone or the emery wheel could reach, they were used instead of the hie. Many oi tho pieces were rejected because of their hardness, and it was thought necessary to make them of iron to bo mado malle ablo at a greatly enhanced cost. A visitor sucsested the uso of spirits of turpentine on drill and file. After somo demur it was tried, and the work proceeded. The speed of tho drill was somewhat reduced from that of a drill in soft gray iron, but the obdurate ma terial yielded to the persuasive influence of tho turpentine. Tho tile was kept wet with it, and there was no difficulty in cutting tho hard metal. It is ascer tained, however, that the supply of tur pentine must be continuous a common mucilage brush is handy for the pur- poso and that the turpentine, evapora ted and oxidized by exposure until it is somewhat viscid, is better than the lim pid spirit, as having more body.
