Bnt one day the soft winds whispered: The

And: "The sea Is a bright blue ribbon, one

The other Is held by your lover, and one day
you twain shall meet."
Now each night she lighted a beacon oa top
of a wood fringed hill.
And as the flames reached upward la the
starlight soft and stilL
She sang in her newfound hopefulness:
"Your light send far and wide.
That wearv hearts on wave-tossed ships may

Full many a swain looked kindly on this maid

One was a straight laced Puritan and one was
a jolly 'squire;
But still In the midst of the morning and still
in the evening's gray
She gazed at the sea and talked and sapg of
the ship that would come some day.
The summer was one of failure, brave faces

And as the red beacon flared aloft It mocked

She was a copyist in Simeon Grant's
abstract office, at a salary of six dollars a
week, payable at the convenience of
her employers. Probably, if Dick had
been cashier instead of clerk, and
Maggie a young woman of leisure,
they would have waited until fortune
smilod more benignly. Certainly
there had been no "flesh pots" in their
meager lives, to which they could ever
look back; then the future gave
reasonable promise of better things;
hence they were married in less than a
year after their first meeting.
Dick had saved enough of his salary
to make a two-thirds payment on a
smalt cottage in the suburbs, the re
mainder to be paid within two years,
in monthly installments. It was de
cided that a sum should be laid aside
each month for this purpose, leaving a
balance, which would amply cover
their living expenses. Dick held a
policy ln'an accident company; there

The cottage was really a very

a bit of paradise. And, what with her

then caught glimpse, of his wife, who
was both young ana pretty.
One day a pet bird escaped ffOtn. the.
great house and flew straight Into the
little conservatory which Dick had con
structed for Maggie's flowers. Maggie
caught it and, putting on her bonnet,
went over to restore it to its owner.
Mrs. Sanders was profuse in her
thanks, and insisted that Maggie
should come inside and see a rare col
lection of plants that had just been
added to the splendid eodsrVatory.
Thns the Ice was broken; and after
this the two often exchanged greetings
or chatted over the low hedge.
About this time Maggie's little par
lor began to look very poor and com
mon to her, and her mind was troubled
with visions of glistening mirror., vel
vet carpets and silken portieres. One
day, late in autumn, Mrs. Sanders
came into the little conservatory,
where Maggie was busy in a bower of
glowing chrysanthemums. She flitted
from one flower to another, exclaiming
over their beauty in a pretty, ecstatic
"I am to give a little affair next
Thursday evening, Thanksgiving, you
know, and I had to set my heart
on chrysanthemum decorations; but
Bailey's are all engaged. 1 -Aras wonder
ing if yon would not sell a few, just a
very few of these sweet things," she
added, coaxingly, touching a bunch of
vivid, golden-hearted beauties.
"No," Maggie answered, flushing
proudly; "I will not sell you one, but
I will give you all that yon care for."
"Dear Mrs. Bloom, it is too lovely of
yon to say so! And I want you to

overturning it and breaking it upon
the floor. It mnst be confessed, how
ever, that at this moment the rare slips
were of small account in Maggie's
eyes. Her heart was in a foolish flut
ter as, in fancy, she saw herself an
honored guest at Mrs. Schuyler San
ders' "select affair." When at last or
der was restored, Mrs. Sanders went
"Bailey will not even superintend
the decorations; but I have a penchant
for that sort of thing myself, and I feel
sure that, with the assistance of your
exquisite taste, we could get up some
thing perfectly sweet."
Perhaps Maggie's assent to the plan
was a trifle eager; indeed I fear that it
was so much so as to flavor strongly of
gratitude. However, were there not
plenty of women, with substantial
bank accounts, who would have given
anything for an invitation to one of
Mrs. Sanders' entertainments, not to
speak of being made the confidante and
adviserof the great lady herself? When
Dick came home that night he found
Maggie in a flutter of delight.
"Why, bless you, little woman," he
exclaimed, good humoredly, "you don't
imagine she wants yon at her swell
"I'm sure I don't know why she
shouldn't," Maggie replied, with an
offended air. "Yon are connected with
the bank and "
"Connected with the bank! Maggie,
that's too good. Connected with the
bank! so is Pat McDuffy."
"Yes, the man that 'tends the furnace
and sweeps the floors."
"You used to think I was as g-good
. a-anybody," Maggie faltered, and
then burst into tears.
'As good? Great Scott! Maggie, you
know that, to me, yon are worth a
whole world full of those gadding,
flirting women, like Schuyler Sanders'
wife. Bnt they would as soon think of
making equals of Pat and Biddy as
they would of you and me. But never
mind. Blossom," he added, kissing
away her tears, "if she really wants
you, and if you really want to go, your
old Dick isn't going to scold about it."
I am going down town to-day,"
Maggie announced, as they lingered
over their breakfast next morning.
"I shall want some ribbons to freshen
up my black silk, bnt l don't want
money, sir," she added saucily, as Dick
produced his pocketbook. "I had a
note from Mr. Grant yesterday, saving
that he is at last ready to pay me the
ten dollars that was due my salary
when I left his service."
"If you go down to Grant's you can
step into the insurance office and leave
this," Dick said, laying a ten dollar
bill beside her plate. "To-morrow
will be the last day of grace," he add
ed, "and I wouldn't have yon forget it
for the world."
"Should yon forfeit your policy?"
'No, I could redeem that at anv time
within three months; but, in case of an
accident, I should receive no benefits."
"Bnt there has never been an acci
dent," Maggie said, shuddering.
"No, and let us hope there may never
be. Nevertheless, little woman, don't
forget to hand Fergus the money."
When Maggie want down town she
had intended going immediately to the
insurance office. However, as Bal
four's lay directly in her way, she
could not resist the temptation to go in
and look through the ribbon counters.
At the glove counter were a couple of
ladies whom Maggie recognized as be
longing to the "Schuyler Sanders" set
As she paused a moment in the crowd
she caught snatches of the Conversa
tion: "Mrs. Schuyler Sanders," "Very
rtcluTthe affair," "O, yes, full dress, of
course.'' "Mauve faille and diamonds."
Maggie's heart sank. How poor and
cheap her black silk had suddenly be
come! She" was sure, very sure that
no amount of fresh ribbons could make
it "full dress." She wandered aimless

"Twelve," Maggie faltered.
"Twenty yards is the smallest pat
tern tp ever sell," answered the clerk,
loftily. "Remember, madam, these
goods are but sixteen inches wide."
To tell the truth, Maggie had not
thought of the width at all. I think
she ould have given up the dress alto
gether, but somehow the stern look of
the "gentlemad behind the counter"
bewildered her and she stammered:
"Isixteen yards, please."
In a minute the shimmering stuff
was cut off; then there were linings
and threads to be bought and, some
minutes later, when Maggie emerged
from the store, it was with a diminu
tive parcel and an empty pocketbdttk.
As sha hurried across to Simeon
Grant's, she told herself that she onght
to have gone to the insurance office
first But it really didn't matter after
all. And pink satin gowns were not to
be picked up at such prices every day.
She found the abstract office locked,
but there was a card on the door. She
stood on tip-toe to read it Mr. Grant
was out of the city and would riot re
turn nntil next week. Her first im
pulse was to rush 6ver to the bank and
tell Dick all about it But what was
the use, it would only trouble him.
She would get the money next week;
then she would tell him.
It was almost tea time whatl she
reached home; she did not wait to re
move her wAxps, but with trembling
nngers opened her bundle. Somehow
the beauty of the pink satin seemed to
have departed. In the glare of day
light it certainly looked different It
was coarse and flimsy and the cotton
filling was painfully conspicuous.
Maggie laid the new dress away, but
all the next day her Sunday medita
tions were disturbed by visions of it
On Monday morning, as soon as Dick
was fairly out of the way, she drew out
her cutting table and began work in
earnest But things did not progress
smoothly. The goods frayed and
raveled at every touch; and there was
certainly not enough to make the dress
as she had planned. She was begin
ning to feel cross and worried when
some one rapped lightly. Throwing
something over her work, she opened
the door to find Mrs. Sanders smiling
"Good news!" she exclaimed, gayly,
throwing herself into a chair. "Bailey
has consented to do the decorations,
after all. Fancy work?" she ques
tioned, as she picked up a scrap of the
pink satin, twirling it in her hands as
she talked. "Provoking, isn't it that
they should bring such goods out in
these lovely shades? Why, my cook
and second girl have actually gotten
ffraw of the stuff! The vulgar creatures
imagine themselves fine ladies. It
seems utterly impossible for them to
understand how hideous these base
imitations arc in the eyes of well-bred
people" Mrs. Sanders seemed not to
have noticed Maggie's crimson face.
"I should like you to see Bailey's
decorations," she said, as she arose to
go. "By the way, what is to hinder
your coming over at about nine? I
shall be dressing, but I can instruct the
footman to admit you. You can look
at the rooms and have ample time to
get away before the guests arrive."
Maggie had a dim recollection of
thanking Mrs. Sanders and of showing
her out Then she went back into the sit
ting-room an '1. laboriously gathering up
every scrap ui the hateful pink satin,
thrust it into the closet and turned the
key. Putting on her hat and shawl,
she went out into the open air and
started down the road, walking in a
rapid, aimless fashion. The air was
sharp and cold, but the blcod throbbed
hotly in her veins.
A vehicle was coming rapidly down
the road. As it came nearer she rec
ognized it as the Sanders' coupe.
When it was nearly opposite her the
coachman drew np the reins, beckon
ing to her. She wondered vaguely
what it meant but before she had
reached the carriage she descried Dick
lying white and limp in the arms of
Mr. Schuyler Sanders.
"Don't be alarmed, Mrs. Bloom," be
gan Mr. Sanders, reassuringly. "It is
nothing serious. There was an acci
dent on the street car and Mr. Bloom
was so unfortunate as to have had both
legs broken. Please get in, Dr. Barr
will be on directly."
Maggie instantly resolved to keep
her senses about her; and, indeed, she
succeeded so well that even the great
Dr. Barr commended her.
Two days later, as Maggie and Dick
were alone together in the twilight,
Dick suddenly exclaimed:
"What are we to have to eat to-morrow,
"Why, dinner, I suppose," Maggie
rejoined, laughing uneasily as she re
membered that the unusual drain of
the past few days had left the family
purse almost empty.
"But to-morrow will be Thanksgiv
ing," Dick persisted.
"Why, Dick, I can kill one of the
chickens; they are really getting quite
"I say, Maggie," Dick broke in,
"breaking a fellow's legs doesn't spoil
his appetite. Last year we had turkey

shonld have gotten only fifteen dollars
and my weekly allowance, bnt as it is,
I'll get twenty-five dollars. Goodness!
Maggie, what is the matter?"
Poor Maggie! how could she ever tell
that dreadful story! When she had
finished, Dick looked very grave, but
he only said: "It was a mistake, of
course; but I'm not going to let-it make
me forget that my little wife has been
my good angel, and. as long as we have
each other, if we have but a crust, we
can keep Thanksgiving just the saaae.

Maggie felt that, if she remained a
minute longer, there would certainly
be a "scene;" so, at this juncture, she
slipped quietly out of the room.
And it transpired, after all, that the
Blooms had a genuine Thanksgiving,
with turkey and the appropriate ac
companiments. Out of the fullness of
her heart, Maggie sent invitations to
four friends of their boarding-house
days. A merry party it was which
gathered around the little table that
was wheeled up to Dick's lounge.
After the guests had gone Maggie
went to the closet and, drawing out
her work-basket resolutely unrolled
the pink satin. "1 shall make a head
rest for Aunt Maria's Christmas," she
began, "and sachet-bags for Lou and
Amy, and yes, and a handkerchief

The same old hunger stared them in

was upon them, marked by a hiatus of
turkey and cranberry sauce.
The exchequer had lost its last X,
and the checkers could not be found.

And as he spoke, the postman's

"It was accepted six years ago."
Then there was a deep silence for
the required time; and as the fire

the bell in the neighboring steeple
told the hour of midnight, a little
prayer of thanksgiving went up from
two devoted souls, coupled with a
heartfelt request that all the blessings

Sometimes yon may have to wait,
Tho troubles that have been
in jrathcrmff can't always bo cleared
away ifl a day. For alltho diseases'
and disorder peculiar to wobsm
hood, Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
Bcription is tho surest and speediest
remedy. You can depend trpon that
but if your case is obstinate, give
it reasonable time.
It's an invigorating restorative
tonic, a soothing and strengthen
ing nervine, and a positive specific
for female weaknesses and ailments.
All functional disturbances, painfuL
irregularities and derangements art
corrected and cured by it. All unnat
ural discharges, bearing-down sensa
tions, weak Dack, accompanied with
faint spells and kindred symptoms,
are corrected. In every case for
which it's recommended, "Favorite
Prescription," is guaranteed to give
satisfaction, or tho money is re
funded. No other medicine for
women is sold on such terms. That
proves that nothing elso offered by
mo Scaler can be "just as good.
Here is an incident from the Sooth
Mississippi, written in April, i8gov
just afterthe Grippe had visited that
country. " I am a fanner, one of
those who have to rise early and
work late. At the beginning of last
Winter I was on a trip to the City
of Vicksburg, Miss.,where I got well
drenched in a shower of rain. I
went home and was soon after seized
with a dry, hacking cough. This
grew worse every day, nntil I had
to seek relief. I consulted Dr. Dixon
who has since died, and he told me
to get a bottle of Boschee's German
Syrup. Meantime my cough grew
worse and worse and then the Grippe
came along and I caught that also
very severely. My condition then
compelled me to do something. I
got two bottles of German S3Tup. I
began using them, and before taking
much of the second bottle, I was
entirely clear of the Cough that had
hung to me so long, the Grippe, and
all its bad effects. I felt tip-top and
have felt that way ever since."
