"THE LITTLE THANKSGIVING MOTHER,"
VOLONTEERB WILL MAKE
400 HAPPY TOMORROW
The newsboys, messenger boys,
poor women arid children of the city
will eat turkey and cranberry sauce
tomorrow as the guests of the Vol
unteers of America, Tlie banqueting
room will be In tlie basement of the
city h.iil building. Provisions have
been made to accommodate 40 0 guests
nnd dinner will be served from 3:110
to 5:30 in the afternoon.
Every year the Volunteers aim to
give a banquet to the poor and needy
nt Thanksgiving time. It is a part
t>t their religion to do good in the
lowliest walks of life, even ns did
their Bavlor during his career on
earth.
There is pleasure for them In the
thought that they are helping some
one In need. Nothing is sadder than
a child deprived of the luxuries of a
good meal. The growing body craves
food and to one not accustomed to
dainties It Is a rare treat, Indeed, to
be Invited to eat turkey, if only once
during the year.
The good cheer always accompany
ing a Thanksgiving dinner will glad
den the hearts of the little street
urchins who are out in all sorts of
weather selling their papers. Already
their expectations have reached the
stage of the happiness In store for
them tomorrow.
THIEVING RAT MET HIS MATCH.
ring nnd suspected an energetic rat that had bean running around his
house. To catch the rat ho placed an Imitation diamond ring on Ills dresser
and attached a thread to it. The rat came hack nnd stole the second ring.
Then Young only had to follow the thread. It led him through several
partitions and under a few floors, but he eventually found the rat's nest
and both lings.
DON'T CROSS TOUR KNEES.
A medical authority has recently
Uttered a wn mi ng against the habit
.of sitting witli ouo knee crossed over
the other. "Thla apparently harm

cause Sciatica, lameness, chronic
numbness, sscendlasj paralysis,

evils, The i sasmi is simple: Tha

All honor and praise to tho Volun

people of the city will bless them and
their goodness will ever be remem
bered.
The cost of foedlng 1000 poor will
not exceed what one rich man of Spo
kane would expend in entertaining to
of his friends at his house. Yet the
rich man sits In his elegant home,
bounteously provided for nmid mag
nllicent Surroundings, und gives no
thought to his less fortunate fellow
mnn. The wind may blow a gale, the
snow Hy and the air lie bitter cold,
It moves him not. He is comfortable
and In his selfishness lie forgets
when he was not so blessed with tills
world's goods.
Does anyone stop to think what a
large amount of work is necessary to
get a dinner for a hungry mob of
400? The collection of n little here
and there, the preparation and the
serving, all require time and labor.
The Volunteers do It lovingly, cheer
fully nnd without thanks In many
cases. The busy world looks on,
remarks it Is a good thing, but lends
no helping hand. It is (inly the Vol
unteers, they say. They are used to
earing for the unfortunate.
Ood bless the Volunteers,
Would thnt there were more of
them.

PRIVATE ARMIES.
It Is not so very long ago since
every greet noble thought i» Incum
bent upon bis dignity to surround
himself with ns strong a force of
armed retainers as he could afford
to upkeep. And even today, within
the confines of the British Isles the
custom still lingers, si though few
people probably are aware of the
fact. One of the most numerous and
best equipped of these present-day
private armies Is that maintained by
the duke of Atlndl, at Blair Alboll,
111 Perthshire. It consisted, accord
ing to the latest returns, of 1!:'S of
ficers ami men, whose armament Is
of the most modern and approved
pattern. Trior to 1141 Ibis was not
the case, the privates retaining their
ancient loeluiber uxes, c laymores and
targets, while UtS Ofleerg carried the
traditional short broadsword (fal
chion) of the Highland chleftHliiß.
The proprietor of the Hotel Bt. Re

could ever have started those false

NO DISRESPECT IN JAPAN.
In Japan there is no such thing
as disrespect from youth to age. No
Japanese boy or girl could ever think
In a light or disrespectful manner
of his or her superiors or torn hers,
and this may account for the earnest
ness so unusual among young chil
dren.
When a student enters a master's
presence in Japan he bows to the
floor, und when the lesson is finished
he bows again, with expressions of

of tlie ancient building. They crawl
ed about the tloor and onto the stage,
and he could see the annoyed audi
ence stamping on tlie insects.

Forlimpopoll, near Bologna, a me

in tlie Municipal theater to the mem

named Passatore, the only son of
Forlimpopoll who has yet risen to
