Editor IIerald: Thanksgiving has passed sinco my last communication and, n all humility of my heart, 1 thanked my Heavenly father that I had boon sparod nolhoryear. Among tho many things for which I offered thanks was that I had not been itnotherod to death in tho mine by tho blunder of somo ono; that I had tho good fortune to not bo one of tbo un lucky number who subsisted on rats for a number of days, while their more forlun- ato brethren wero drowned ; and ospccially was I thankful that I had not been called upontosorvo on a coroner's jury. I also offered thanks for tho prospects of a bmy coal trade this winter; and, that night, while others woro roveliug in suppers and festivals, I, through tho Lord, on my bended knees, said I thanked tho Lord for the hope that, with tho prico of coal ad. vancing this wintor, our hard earnings would not bo taken off in percentages, Though I maintain that tho mini ra havo, n taxes, contributed moro than their pro rata share towards maintaining a hospital, jot I said thanks for tho cxhtenco of ono. I felt constnined to bo thankful tbat I was not obligated to pay moro for a ton of ctal hero at tho breaker than tho people in Now l'ork and l'hiladolpbia are obliged to pay. In conclusion I gave special thanks for tho electrio railway and tho IIkrald, a papor that does not kick tbo workingman in ono ifsue and pat him on the sboulder in tho next. But tho hour it gotting lato. I must retire. I havo no coal ready for the morning. His lordship (the mule) will bo thero with an empty car and, liko all other brutes, he will bavo no compassion on the old man. AN OLD MlN'Ell Shenandoah, Nov. 80, 1601. Commendable.

Stories That Help tho Old War Horses of Town to Pass Even ings Pleasantly Some In torosting RemlniBConccs. To get in tho company of half a di zen veterans of the civil war, on a night when tbo weather is too cold and otherwise disa crecablo for street travel and whon tho chcorful rays from a stove heaped with blazing coals cast a brilliant hue upon tho glasses held in tho hands marked with the emblems of hard toil, is a treat. Host of tho vets in town are poor story tollers o war reminiscences until woll pumped and well, until that which drives dull caro away has been woll sampled. Then the stories flow. Thero was a group comfort- aMy seated in a woll known placo tho othor night. An old follow came up to mo a littlo boozy tho other day," said ono, "and said hi regiment was nover stam; cded battle," but ho struck tho wrong customer. I asked him if ho recollected tho second battlo of Bull Kiin, and ho said ho did, and ell too. I then told him of how his regiment becamo demoralized and after wards camo inside of a now line of butt! mado up of fresh troops, in double quick ordor. llo acknowledged tho corn. don't want to say anything against th regiment; it was ono of tho bestot Burn side's corps, but pcoplo in glass housos shouldn't throw stono.1.

McClolIan stood by as troops passed and inquired of Gen. Cake, 'What regiment is that?' When told it was th 06th Pa. ho said, 'I thought tlioy woro tho bravo coal crackors.' " A third vet contributed this; "I tell you, boys, many a BCtiomo was planned to get homo on furlojgh or discharged. I ro mornber wo had marched through Virginia so often that tho soldiers of tho nrmy ol tho Potomac became discouraged. Ono beau'iful moonlight night, near Thorough fare Gap, while Tom Houck and I were reclining upon tho grass, talking and think, ing of home, be proposed a plan to get homo. Tom was tired of tho Army tired tramping over tho same ground so often. He suggestod rubbing our joints with blue ointment and then wetting them. This would givo us rheumatism and led to our dischargo. But the plan endod at tho sug goilion, Tom, Houck died at his homo in Pottsvillo from a wound received in a sub sequent battlo. Ho and Clem. Potls, Joo Dengler, Ted. Smith and Bill Weand woro wbolo souled and merry messmates. 'The fraternal spirit burnod in tho breasts of tho comrades on tho battle field as brightly as It has tiuco in tho Posts of tho G. A. It ," put in a vet who had listenod contentedly to his comrudos. "1 remember a membor of our company dy ing at Ilarruon Landing, ilia name was Madison and ho was carried off by typhoid fever. Ho was a favorite and ovory mem1 her in tho company went down into his poclet to help pay for embalming the body and sending It homo to tho bereaved parents," 'Did you ovor know Dan Hartllno?" asked another, "Ho is living In lit.

Ho was another lively follow, Ono day, while charging through tho pass and up tho mountain, Dan was greatly amused by the antics of the Johnnies In trying to get out of tbo way of our bayonots.

'Speaking of Cramplon's Pass," con tinued anothor vet, "reminds me of young Wright, a drummor boy of Capt. Boyle' company, llo was a mero strlppling of a lad, but bravo and fearloM as a lion. Ho was in advaqco and camo upon a slooping ebl officer. With gun pointodhearousod tbo officer by giving him a kick and com manded him to march ahead. Tho ordor as obeyed and the officer landed In our camp, tuo captlvo ol mo littlo drummer boy." "But, boys," exclaimed a vet who laid aido bis pipe, "Some fellows managed to make money between battles. During tho sorvico of tho 100-day mon a company of ono of tho regiments was statiotrud at a tobacco warehouse, whoroa largo numbor ol substitutes woro kept under guard until they could bo assigned to rogimonts. TIkso substitutes, nearly ail from New- York state, had recoivod from ?S00 to $1,- 000 oach as bounty money and required watchlnc, or thoy would havo skipped. Well, this company was on guard but ono night and in that timo there woro but few of tho men who failod to make a haul.

An Enjoyablo Night. Ono of tho brightest performance)! over witnossed, says Guy Pomberton in tho Evening Sun, is that delightful, whimsical, natural play, "She Couldn't Marry Three." It is homelike, tho story most probable and interesting, causing tears oC sympathy or hearty laughter. Uncon sciously you aro interested in Miss Kon- nody'a portrayal ot "Bess." You laugh and cry with hor as sho flits liko a beam of light through each act of the play. Sho laughs, crits, sings, dancos ; sho'a a hoyden. trusting little fisher maidon, and no maltor what she does sho carries you along with her an unresisting worshipor at her shrine. What a sturdy, massivo, picturosquo figure Mr. Sullivan is in tho charactor of "Davio," tho rough fisherman and heroic lover; his quiet intensity sbgge;t tho s'rongth of the ocean. And I laugh with reminiscent pleasure as I recall that de lightful, verdant, uproarious, foolish "Bol Backus" as played by Mr. Kennody. I surrendered at once ; I'm laughing yot. and I ndviso thoso who deplore the fact that wo havo so few good plays, go soo "She Couldn't Marry Three," and bo happy.
