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

" 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
"'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
" ' What'a to be done ?' saya I.
" Pray about it,' she aays. Samanthy
was a wonderf ul woman to pray about
" ' 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
" ' 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
" 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
" 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." Mrs. Margarct Peeke, in
A Llnie-Klln Obitaarj.
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
