WILLIAM POPE. Sweet music is a child of heaven, But gates could not confine her there; And though no wings to her were gicen She wafts herself upon the air 'Tween earth and skies, yet holds her place Where cherubs harp and seraphs sing The plowman's cot she deign to grace As well as palace of the king. Within that world where music reign What Is it with her can compare? Before the Throne her brightest strain Are cast, to burn and sparkle there: Her robe is harmony of sound, Her crown the richest gems of song. The highest angel ne'er hath found A garb more powerful and strong. The breath of music is a balm Which penetrates the inmost soul. And bids the troubled heart be calm. And sweetens oft the bitter bowl. The beast is docile 'neath her charms, The sa age often feels her power. She calls the peaceful man to arms. And soothes him in his dying hour. Thcnlet me drink that breath divine, And let the robe of music float Around this restless soul of mine, Without one grim, discordant note; It matters not if soft or wild The strain, if harmony complete. My spirit longs for Heaven's child. To kneel and listen at her feet. Boston Folio. Theo. Thurston's Thanksgiving Turkey. BY AUNT HATTIE. " It's all idle to talk of a thanks giving turkey when you know we can t possibly afford it. 1 did think if j-ou would all be good children I'd have a roast chicken and a dish of mashed potatoes with a nice brown crust over the top of them and that is a dinner good enough for a kins, and one that even he ought to bo truly grateful for." Uh, but a biff brown turkey wouiu looic so nice, and taste so good!" said little Lettv " Yes, but we'd have to pay two dollars for the turkey, and by the next day there would be nothing left of it except maybe a few bones to pick and we not a whit better off than if we had never had it." " Only wc would have the good taste ol it in our minds, said Lctty. Her sister Emma langlicd and said: "Little good that would do us, so long as we couldn't have it in our mouths; and I think it is as mother says, that there's no use talking about a thing wc can't afford." When the children were all- snus in bed that' night, Theo. Thurston, the big brother of the family, heard his sister Letty sav: "Mary, when I said my prayers to-night I asked God to please to send us a thanks giving turkey; do you think he will be angry with me for asking such a thing r " WTcll no I sniess not," was the hesitating reply, "louknow thev tell us in Sunday-school that wc are to ask God for even-thins: we want -just as we would ask a father, if we hail one and the minister says God is our Father, and that he loves us and wants us to be happy." " Well, 1 asked lum real earnest to-night to send us a turkey, and I mean to keep on asking him till Thanksgiving Day comes. If he docs send us one, then I'll think he is like a Father, and that there is some use in praying to him. Emma, did father always give us everything we asked lorr said Alary. " iot quite always, was the an swer. "Sometimes we wanted what ould hurt us; and other times when we asked for something he would say he couldn t afford it. ' " But God is so rich he can afford anything," said Letty, gleefully, and as a thanksgiving turkey isn't going to hurt us, he 11 give it to us, I know, 1 keep on asking real earnest, as mean to do." " Since he is so rich that he can do anything he pleases, suppose you ask him to send me, at the same time, a pair of brown kid gloves." said Lizzie. "Andmc one of those new col lars, that we saw to-daj-, with lace on them," said Emma. " And tell him I would like a pair of jet bracelets," chimed in Mary. les, i will," said the child, with her simple faith. "And I think, if I were vou." said Lizzie, "I would ask him for a pair of blue boots to match your dress." "Oh, I don't know about the boots; maybe God would think I didn't need them, and that it would only be making me vain to have them; but I mean to pray for all the other things, and for that pair of pectacies mother was wishing for," the child said so earnestly that the other girls could not help laughing outright. And Ihco. Thurston laughed softly to himself as he listened to this little chat among his sisters. As he counted upon his fingers the articles desired, he resolved that his little .Lctty should have her faith strengthened by a. literal answer to each petition. He had but lately learned how pleasant it is to go to our Father in heaven and spread all our wants before him, and he longed to have all his sisters, both big and little, learn the same sweeflesson. But where was he, a poor young lad, to get tne money lor all those pur chases? Ah! that is his own glad secret! For several weeks he lias been working beyond the regular business hours, and the money for tins work is to be paid lum the claj before Thanksgiving. It is thus honestly his, to hold or to spend as he pleases. IVo one at home knows of it not even his mother and now he is glad of this, for he can set them all to wondering and gucss ing where in the world their thanks giving turkey could have come from ! How completely taken by surprise they were when on the afternoon before Thanksgiving an express man called at their door with a pack age, on which was written in a plain, clear hand "For Mrs. Thurston, a thanks giving turkey. To be delivered at No. 201 Street." 'i Accompanying it was a note which lid: "The express charges arc all paid, you have only to receive the turkey, which wc hope will prove as nice as it seems to promise." "There is some mistake here," Raid Mrs. Thurston; "I have not or dered any thanksgiving turkey." " Then somebody else has ordered it for you and saved you the trouble. You are Mrs. Thurston, and you live at No. 201 Street." "Yes." . , t " Very wellpytortlers arc to tins placed' invyjoue jjands, and done I may as well be off." ' But who sent you with it?" asked the bewildered woman. "Indeed, Madam, I was too busy to ask that; and besides it was none of my business," he said, with heart v laugh ; "good day, and a good Thanksgiving to you, and he sprang into ins wagon and drove away ' Let us carry it in, mother," the girls, "and take off these wrap pings; tnere may be something side that will explain the mystery." les, 1 see some writing under there," cried Emma, eagerly, pulling away the outside paper read aloud: "Mrs. Thurston please inspect this turkey carefully as it was dressed in a hurry some thing may have been left inside which should be removed before cooking." The girls laughed mer rily as their mother more and more bewildered still exclaimed: "I should think there was some thing inside, truly, and a good deal that never- belonged there, too!" And pulling out what seemed to a stuffing of thick brown paper, they lounu live parcels securely wrapped up from all danger of being soiled by the nice fat turkey. The largest of these was opened first, and Letty opened her eyes in wonder when proved to be a pair of blue boots the verj- things she wished but had not dared to pray for. The next was a collar for Emma, then came pair of kid gloves for Lizzie, the bracelets for Mary, and, last ofall.a pair ol spectacles for the mother, with full directions where to have them exchanged provided they did not suit her eyes, which, however, the- happened to do charmingly. How they all stood and stared as one thing after another was opened and proved to be the very things that little Lctty had been praying for. And such" a great grand turkey that was they never had seen one more than half as large before! Hun gry as they all were for thanksgiving turkey, after they had eaten as much as they possibby could, and had.sent a wing to a poor sick man over the way, and a drum-stick to the little lame boy next door, there seemed still the half of it left on the plat ter, bo they had a second thanks giving dinner ou Friday, and on Saturday the picking of the bones afforded them another grand feast. in the midst ol all the rejoicing little Lctty slipped away by herself to thank God for having heard her prayers, while all her sisters felt that there must be some use in praying when it had been the means of bringing them such nice things. It as a long while before they learned that these gifts of their heavenly iatner iiad come through the hands ot their kind brother Theo. I think my little reader will agree ith me that the thanksgiving tur key which Theo. Thurston thus got p and sent home was a nice affair as well as a real funny one. A RARE ANIMAL. A gentleman who came down on the Farragut from Fort Buford saj-s tne bioux Uity JJailii Times gives the following information regarding species of animal hitherto i known on this continent: Sir John E. Packcnham, an officer in the English army, who has been spending the last year in her Majes ty s JNortliern Provinces, arrived at on isuioni witn animal ot rare beauty, and never before caught on this continent, nor has it been known till late years that this species ex isted in tins country. It is of the same family as the giraffe, or cam- elopard, of Africa, and is known to naturalists as the Tygomelia. They are known to lnliamt tne High table lands ol Laslnnerc anil llindo Kosli, but arc more frequently seen on the high peaks of the Himalaya Mount ains. The animal, was taken when quite young, and is thoroughly domestic ated and lollows its keeper like a dog. It is only four months old, and ordinarily stands about five feet high, but is capable of raising its head two feet, which makes the an- mal seven feet when standing erect. It is of a dark brown or mouse col- ; largo projecting eyes, with slight indications of horns growing out. This wonderful animal was caught north of Lake Athabusca, on the rater of Mckenzie s river. It has craw similar to the pelican, by wiucn means it can carry subsist ence for several days. It is very fleet, being able to outfoot the fast est horse in the country. The black dapper spots on the rich brown col- make it one of the most beauti ful animals in existence more beautiful than the leopard of the Chinese jungle. Sir John did not consider it safe to transport his pet by water down the Missouri river, fearing the un certain navigation and the great change of climate from the Man itabo to the sunny south. He has therefore, wisely concluded to go by way ot fet. I'aul, Jlmnesota. I he commander at Fort Buford furnishes him an escort for the trip. lie win tiicn proceed through Can ada to Montreal, where he will ship ins cnarge to Juigianu. A VILLAINOUS TRICK. A good joke is told on a mfember one ofthe volunteer companies which went down to Pcnsacola. We ink it was a Mississippi company. and it is said to be a fact. Being .ustomcd to fresh water, living in thci interior, ami not Having been out the Gulf of Mexico before, he as in blissful ignorance of its briny properties. Getting up in the morning, as usual, to perform his daily ablutions, he drew a bucket of water, set it down near some of his i comrades, and retired for soap and towel. Beturning with the ar ticles, he soused into the bucket of iter; with face and hands. The consequence may be imagined. Ite- renngfrom the shock, and rub- bin" his burning eyeballs, he ex- limed: "I can whip the rascal that salted this water. A man can't aw a bucket of water and leave it few moments without some prank played upon lum. Dashing the iter aside, he left amid the shouts ind jeers of his companions, who had been silently watching him. Ducks have decided opinions of their own; they always come out flat-footed.
