Bhe leaned agtln.t the wlndow there, A chatmlng picture of detpalr, BntgVowlng weary oon,ihecrl'd, Hcr dall looks, changlmc n'l to lanthtor, " Cnpld, I'vo chaaed yon long enonah J tblnk It'e yonr tnrn to comeafler 1" Hmt thoxe who knew the mald aver That It waa 7 wh followed her. 7f ury. " Our TlinnksKlTlnp." A strong faoel You may well say that ma'am, and the picture don't half do hor justice, either. I reckon it would be hard to find a woman now like tho 0110 who owned that face, and her lifo was a story just llko tboae .vou road in books. If you don't mind 111 tell jou about hcr," tho old man closed bis eyes a mo ment, aa if he would recall from h!s inner Ihoughta the years long since passed, and while ho waited l s'udied uiore closely the face in the picture before me. Many years must have come and gone lince the artist had given the last touch to his work, but it smiled upon me in euch a living way, and stood out so plain ly upon tho cauvas, that it needed no word to tell that it had been the work of a master hand. A massive frame of heavy gilt that had grown but little dimmed by time, and the laccs resting at her throat, gave evideuce of wealtb. It was a young face, a strong face, aluiost a handsome face, but its great charactoristic was intellectual force, and intense will-power. This gavo her a sort of fascination that held the obseiver wbo had seen it odcb until he must look and look again. It was not the kiud of pict ure usually fonnd in cottages. and seemed ont of keeping with tho old man, who sat on the vine-covored porch, dreaming the autumn days away. I had lost my way in rambling throngh the outskirts of Tullfthoma (one of the loveliest of all our New Eunland towns, and almost as well known aa a resort as for its collecrc), and had stumbled upon this cottage before I was aware. The old man, venerable with age, and alone, at' tracted me. I asked permission to rest, and white waiting for a drink of spring watermy eye retted on the picture I have mentioned, and oaused me to ezclaim, " What a strong face." He was now ready for the Htory, which I will give in his own words. " You see," he began, " we had been married ten years, and never a chick or child had come to us. It was getting sort o lonesome for us, to sit down morning, ooon and night, iust us two, and we be gun to talk of adopting a child, just for company, wnen a pair ot twins came. They were born Thauksgiving morning, and, though it is nigh on to forty year iince it bappened, 1 can see those two lit tle heads a lyin' on one pillow, just as plain as if it had been to-day. Oue was a boy, 'That'a for company for you Ephraim,' my wife said : t'other was a eirl, Tbat's for company for me,' she added. ' What shall we call them ? ' " ' Something that means something," I answered. "'Just so I think,' she said. And af ter thinking and praying overit, we made up our minds to call the boy Welcome and the girl Thanksgiving. Tbat's her in the picture, and everyono'U tell you apeak the truth when I say she was sb smart a girl aa ever drew her breatb. Welcome was always delicate, but sho was strong and well, and knew more than any girl I ever saw. We lived over the mountains, in a neighboring county, then, where schoola were poor, an1 chil dren conldn't have a chance to nse their brains ; for, you see, if a body can't be taught how to use their intellects, it's worse than if they dida't have them, for they just keep a workingiuside with noth ing to do till they wear a body out, body and sonl. So, wben the twins were ten years old, I said to my wife : " Samanthy, do you know what we'ro doing V "'No, Ephraim,' saya she, and she looked up suddenly. " ' We're making idols of these blessed twins, and not doing our duty by 'em.' "Tvo thought the same thing,' she said. " ' What'a to be done ?' saya I. " Pray about it,' she aays. Samanthy was a wonderf ul woman to pray about everything. " ' Something else mustbe done,' saya I. " What's that ?' " ' Sell this place, and move to Tulla homa, where they can have good schooling. Who ever kuew a child to teach herself to read when she waa three yeara old, like onr Thanksgiving ? And we niight bctter starve their bodies than their minds, for the minds last forever.' " ' You're right, Ephraim, you're al ways seeing what must be done. We'll sell this fall." " And ao we did, and we came to this very cottage, and settlod down where we could send 'em to school, and began to take college students to board. Wife was a good cook, and we soon had as many as wo wanted. Oue of 'em waa a poor chap, who offered to teach the twina for bis board. It was getting cold weather, and this was just wbat we wanted. So he took them under his charge, and they learned so fast, he faid they'd soon be ready for oollege. Ono d&y he camo to me and said : " 1 you know you've got a wonder fnl daughter, Mr. Woodward? Some day her name will bo known all over the world aa a very learned woman. She ongbt to be aplendidly eduoated.' " Do your best, Collins, and 111 buy her books,' I Baid. Sj then he let her be gin Laliu and Greek, and when he gradu ikted, she was tifteen yeara old, and ready for oollege, only women could not go to oollege then. " ' They can't keop me from stndyiug at home, anyhow,' she Baid to me. And 111 keep up with Welcome in all his studies just as if 1 were in college.' " That year a young man came to board at our house named Cyril Hazlitt. His fathor was one of the richest men in New York, but no one would have guessed it to see Cyril, for be was quiet and well be baved, and uncommon iund of his books. No sooner did he get acquainted with Welcome, than be found out how Thauks giving stndied every night, and kept up with bim, just aa if she was golng to grad uate. Thia made him take the notion of giving up his rooma in College Hall, and hiring our parlor, ao he could nelp her, for be had bad a belter fit than moat of the fresbmen, and didn't need to stndv qulte so hard. In less than a month he waa just llko one of ui, and be and Wel como were like brothera. Collpge fellows nsed to mako fnn of him for being at our nno bo muoh. and tried to teasn him, clllng him otio of tho triplets, but ho was too senstble to care, ana woni on just, iub same. I can see tlioso three youngsters now, Bitting in that very fliiting-room, Btudying night aftor night. Il'a hard to think it was so Jong ngo, ouimey ro wbii ing for tho old man, all of 'em, over there." " What becamo ot nim i i Baaea, ior ho had wandcred off in a revorio ngain, and I was obliged to apeak to rouso him from it. " Oh. ves. Thal's tho story. Just as he was getting roady to graduate, and was wriling his spoech ior commenoement, tho war broke out. He was determined to go from the flrat, but we kept coaxing him to watt, nnd welcome loid mm li ne wonld wit till vacation, be would go too ; so he quieted down a spell, and said but little about it. l noucea inanRBeivinp grew pale, and did not eat well, but 1 thought it w.as Btudying too hard, or wor tying abont Welcomo's golng to the war, or BomethiDg of the kind, but I never dreamed she cared for Cyril, till ono night, wo were all sitting on the porch, and wo Baw some one running toward tho hou'io. It waa a brigbt moonlight night, m light aa ever a night could be, and bb soon as ho was near enoush we saw it was a stn- dentho took his meala with us, named Sam Fallowa. He had no sooner come within calling distance than he ahouted : Have you heard the news t xnere'a been a batllo I Our side haa lost. I am going.' " ' ao am l,' satd uyni, jumpmg up. '"And I.' aavB our Welcome. Thanks giving jiiBt shut her hands tight together, and said not a word. "' 1 have waited too long already, and shall go at once.' As be spoke he came forward and took hold ot 1 hanKBgiving's hand, and brought her right up before me, and then he spoke out so all could hear: " Mr. Woodward, I must ask yon what I never meant to ask till I waa ready to take hor to a home of my own, but these are dangeroua tiraes, and Berious time?, and I must apeak now. I love Thanks giving as I lovemyself, and I would raarry her before I enlist. As my wif ) she could come to me if necessary, and if worBt comes to worst, she would have my prop ertv. Can we be married at once V You know me, and you know whether I could makn her happy V " Poor child I Though she was nineteen, I thought of hf r as a child, and I saw in the moonlight her face grow whiter and whiter, and I believe she would bave failen down if ho had not put bis arma around her, and kept her up. " Well, they were married late that night, and next day nearly all tho senior clasB started lor washington, and we were left alone wife, ThankBgiving and I. That dav, a low-covered buggy witb a jet black horse came np from town, and the man who left it said Cyril had told him to brine it up for his wife. " In the next mail came a letter, telling her to ride every day, and show how brave she was by keeping cheerful, and well and happy. It was a hard matter, but ehe was no common girl, and every morning at sunrise she wonld Btart OR on a ride with either her mother or me, and then come home and work all day as if she were paid for it. We knew wbat it meant, tbat ehe made herself tired so as to sleep nights, and so we let her work as mnch as she likd. One day a letter came from New York. It was from Cy ril'a mother, saying they would be thore next day to call on their son'8 wife. J saw two bright red spots comeon Thanks giving's cheeks aa she read it, but not a word did she fay. She brought in fresh ferna for the sitting-room, and made the house look aa cheery as if it was summeo time, and wben it was time for tbem to come, she took a book in her hand, and sat down by tho window to wait. " I knew whnt she thought, and I knew she wisbed they had not come at all, but, as yon fair), ma'am, she was a strong oharacter, and never hnng back from what she thought right to do. So when the carriage drove up, and an old gentlenan with a gold-beaded cane asked if Mrs. Hazlitt lived tbere, she went forward and bowed, and said that was her name, There were three of the strangers, his father, mother, and sister, and they all looked at Thanksgiving as if they wanted to Bee ust wbat Ktnd or a girl sbe was, and not over friendly, I thought at first, out in a moment tney put tueir arms around her, and klssed her, and began talking about Cyril, as if it did their bearts good to tell how much they loved him, and how proud they were of bim. When they got through I said : " We know all about him, and we set a sight of atoro by him, bnt we have a bny of our own lust as good, wbo is with bim now, if he's alive." At this they all bnrat out laughing, and we were just like old fnenda. " They stayed a week at the hotel, conr ing up every day for Thanksgiving to go dnving with them, and when they went away they took her with them. Wife and I did not dare to say we could not let her gp, for we could see sbo was getting paier and paier every day, so we never let on bow lonely we'd be without her, but when sho waa gone, we felt aa if tho world bad slipped.from our feet, and we were all alone. She wrote to na every day, telling us all abont the places she was visiting: Nisgara Falls, tbe sea-shore and tbe Ureat Laices, and by and by, wo got kind of used to doing without ber, and lived on her letters. We never saw hor again till Cbristmas, and flhe came up to stay a montb with ua brioging that pictnre for a Christmaa present. She was just tbe same ahe always was, only ashada more stately. Sho was dressed like a bigh-born lady, I oan tell yon, aud if her husband had been afe, and her twin brother, I know she would havo been aa happy as a queen " She told ua all abont tho bigh eociety she had seen, and how tho rioheat and bsat of the ladiea gave up their fiue dresses and pleasurings to scrape lint and mako comforts for the soldiers, but sho did not tell us what I found out after- ward, that she had given her time to hos pital work in New York, so as to know Letter what to do, if sbo waa needed for the eoldiera. One night a telegram came to her, saying: " tf am ill, como to me. Welcomk.' " ' This meana Cyril,' sho said, and left on tho afternoon train, for New York. You oau imagino bow our hearta quaked with foar at the thought oi our boy'e dangor. Fattb, ma'am, is a great thing, but It does not tako away human love. We waited for another message. It came next day, and told us both boya were sick in the hospltal. Thon we prayed for strength and tried to be patient. Tbe third day came tho word : "' Moet me on the train at midnight' " fahould we mebt both or one ? Wo dared not think, and agaiu we waited, and aa wo waited, prayed. They both came, our boy Welcome and his twin aie ter, Dut ue waa lying wun bis lace up- tnrned in his ccfiln, aud nhe, almost as wbile, could not spoak. Ho was the firflt of all tho collego boys to die, and his gravo is near tho gato of tho college burying-ground. I somehow can't remem her nll that follownd. It seemed aa if I lived in a tcrriblo dream. Wife mourned over Welcomo and tried to f avo Thanks- glving'a life, as tho fever fought for hor. w eehs passed, and ehe got well. J hen I knew all. Sho had found husband and brother in tho hospital, the one getting better, tho other dying. Sbo had never left them till Welcomo died, and thon aho oaruo to tho old home. Cyril'a pa- rents were with him, and whon sho was onco inoro able to move about, ho wrote tbat ua was golng into battle and would not fear deatb if only he could have seen her first. "'I must go now,' she said; I am ueeded elsowbero, and if yourhoarts acbe at home, you must remember how maoy other hearta are aching and breaking. I am thanktul Welcome went and died for his country. Sa must you be.' " h com tbat time she never camo home wbile tho war lasted. I used to see her name in tbe papers as a wonderf ul woman, aa brave as she waa good, and good as eho waa brave, then 1 would remember what her first teacher bad said of her, and aay to myself, Yea, it'a juat as be said, only she ia noted, not for intelleot, though ahe haa it, but for ber great beart, wbicb is better. Her hands, never used to con stant labor, were bo tender tbat Bbo had to barden tbem ny salt and water to make them tongh enough to bear all sho went tbrougb. ller huBband bad been pro- raoted lrom grado to grarfe till he was called Coloncl Ilnz'itt. He had been through forty battles uutoucbed, but at FrederlcKsburg ho tell. A Bharpsbooier pierced his lungs with a bullet, and for three days he lwv among the wounded. She saw him in her dreams lying there, and started to find him. With a permit in ber hand sbo went berselt to the lield of battle and poarched arnong the fallen for ber husband. At last she found him, BeDseiess, ana as u aeaa. aao maae them carry him to the hospltal, and ordered tbe bullet removed. Tbey took it out nnder his left shouldor and gave him np to die. Sbe never left him till he was ont of danger, and aa soon as he could be moved, took him to New York. He waa never well af ter. A cough Bottled on him, and consumption did what the bullet could not do. When she was twenty three she was a widow. I know what you think, ma'am, you think sho was bet ter ou tban many ot tbe widows tbat year and so sbe was, bnt you must romem ber that she had bst a brother, as dear to her as herself apartof kerself and you must know she never had frienda like other girls, for ahe had always lived at home with us, bo sbe was more alone tban otber women. " Did she como home then ? No in deed. She took the fortune he bad Mc her and gave ber days and nights to help ing poor soldiers' widows. Wberevi r the could hear of oue that was needy, there sbe would go with kind words and a purse of money. I conld never tell you all she did, and unleas you heard ber in the dead ot nigbt groan out tbe name ot uyrii or ' Welcome,' you would never dream ehe was a broken-hearted woman. In fiva years ahe joined them. Her last words were.'U Uyril O welcome I and then she dropped asleep with a amile on her lips. Wife went next, and now I'm tho only one left behind. I sit bere every day in the snnilgbt and tninK now muoh brigbter it ia with tbem over tbere, and wonder how much longer I must wait, for 1 ve been alone a long time ; thon l look at tbe picture there and say to myaelf, Surely I can be patient and prove my seif worthy of being the father of our Thanksgiving."

The peach-stones ceased rattling ronnd the hall, tbe windows went down, the munchiug of peanuta waa hushed, and Brother Gardner had a firm hold of the platform witb his toea aa he arose and began : " A reaident of my nayberhud died de odder day, and dia ebenin de com mitte pinted to writo an oulogy on bis character war chowin me a draft of what dey had prepar'd.
