I I was u girl I wouldn't go walking too far," ssld old Uncle Rpbert as a girl of liO passed him on her way down lo the gate of the farmhouse. "And why not?" she ask ed as she almost came to a pause. "Well, according to my Ideas, it's going to rain and snow and blow and hall, and when the storm does break (lie's going to he u buster. You live In the city and don't know anything about the storms wo have out here I've seen It when we didn't have a train along for four straight days." "I wanted to go to the postofBce to mall a letter." "It's three miles there and back, and if I was you I'd put It off. Mebbe somebody'll be passing that you can send It by. Tomnrror's Thanksgiving, you know, and we are going to have the awfuleiit, biggest, nicest dinner anybody ever set down to. it's In your honor, you know. There'll be n turkey, a duck and a chicken; there'll be cranberry sass. pumpkin jtlcs. cur rant Jell, sweet elder nnd apple dump , lln's; there'll be " "I think I'll just walk a little ways, anyhow." said the girl as she opened the gate and paBSed dow n the highway towards the village and the railroad depot "And if you come home as wet as a ! hen don't Bay I didn't warn ye. It's going to come, nnd li s going to bo a buster." Half an hour later, a middle-aged woman with a motherly face nnd voice came out on the steps nnd ask ed: "Pa, do you reckon It's goln' to storm?" "Sure as ducks " "Where's Mlnnlo?" "Oh. Bhe's gone for a santrr I give her warning. What's she wantln' to mall a letter for 1 hain't mailed u "Tomorrer's Thanksgiving, Know." You letter nor got one In 20 years, and I guess I'm about as well off as most folks I was going to ask her but for got It." "Don't you ask her a word about It." cautioned the wife as she came down to him. "1 guess Minnie's got something on her mind, and It hain't none of your business. 1 reckon she'll tell me when she gets ready Least wlBe, I hain't goln' to do any pump ing." "Something on her mind, eh? That's funny. Didn't know that glrli over had anything on their minds except new clothes Is that why alio come visiting us all of a eudden?" "None o' your business! I guess my own slater's daughter can come and see me any time she takes a notion, snd that without writing ahead. What's on her mind, as nigh as I can make out, Is about a young man. If I don't tell you you'll worry the shirt off your back Pa. you got to be as poky as an old maid You can't see s pillar case flopping on the clothes line but whet you want to know all about it Yes; It's about a young man. They are engaged, nnd they've bad a falling out, nnd she's sorter run away from him to find. out If he really cares for her." "And she's got scared about It and has written him a letter to tell where she Ib?" queried the husbsnd "Go on! It's probably a letter to her ma, though I didn't see it nor ask. I hope she didn't stsrt for town. It's going to storm for Bure, and there hain't but one house on the road whero she could find shelter. Look down tho road snd Bee ir you can seo her." "Can't aee hide nor hair of any girl," reported Uncle Robert after g. lng out to the highway nnd taking a long look. An hour later, with both uncle and aunt fidgeting about their girl visitor, the blsck clouds thst had been banking up for hours began to advance before a breeie that soon strengthen ed Into a gale. In five minutes the gray afternoon had become twilight. In fifteen thero was cold rain and live ly ball, and Uncle Robert was blown Into tho kitchen to exclaim: "I told her It was going to oe a buster, and that she mustn't blame me. I started down the road to meet oer. nut ixu-dy what a Btorm! I I All. - -W Mfj it pes J Zl 1 couldn'c get ten rods if I was ts din for It!" Miss Minnie had reached town and mailed her letter and started back again when the storm broke. Before it came, she thought she could make out s human figure on the road ahead of ner. but wasn't sure. The very first gust picked her up and turned her around a 1 deposited her under a roadside tree. She remained there un til the gale began to whip the branches off. snd then let go hor hold and rati for it. There were limbs fall ing all about her, and the hailstones peppered her until she ran almost blindly. She hadn't gone a quarter of a mile when, as she crouched and cov ered her face, she was struck by a flying limb and knew no more. It was the dim sight of the girl and the scream she uttered when hit. that sent the man who was dinging to the roadside fence back Into the highway. He bent over the unconscious form nnd picked It up and staggered back to the fence and followed It until he saw a light and found the gate of a farmhouse. His lusty calls for help soon brought out a man. and the senseless burden was carried Into the house and received by a woman. T don't know who she Is. but I found he- In the road." explained her rescuer. "There Is blood on her hair, nnd I think she was struck down." "We'll do all we can." replied the j man and the woman together, "but you mustn't look for much. We aro mighty poor folks. We hain't got no camphor nor whisky, and ns for get ting a doctor out from town It can't be done tonight " The girl was carried Into the onl bedroom and Inld on the only bed. and when her wet clothing had been removed and she was between the sheets, t'no woman got a cloth and a basin of water and washed away the blood nnd whispered to the stranger: "I don't think she's bad hurt She's lust fainted away with the rcare of ft When she opens her eyes I'll tell her to go fo sleep, and she'll he all right in the morning." "Do you think It's some young ladv from the village"" asked the stranger of the farmer as they talked In whis pers In the outer room. "No, I don't reckon so I reckon It's that new girl that arrived a! Turner's j a few days ago 1 saw her going to wards the Village two hours ngo "Arrived at Turner's! Say. man are you sure" Is It a strange girl to the neighborhood ?" "I've heard say It was I'ncle Hob's niece, and that she come from the city. What nils you. stranger? Does this storm upset you?" It wasn't the storm. Percy Klncald had Quarreled With the girl he loved and had in ked to be his wife It was about nothing, almost, as most lovers' truarrsll are, but pride on either side held off a reconciliation until tho lover finally learned that Miss Mlnnlo had gone on a Journey nnd left no word for him She wns going to spend Thanksgiving week In the country. Within two days she had relented; within three he was making every ef fort to locate her. thnt he might patch up a peace lie had succeeded He was gnlnir to throw himself on her mercy and nsk I'ncle Robert for a Pings at his Thanksgiving table. The storm grew fiercer as the night advanced The girl woke and then slept a dreamless sleep, and the lover had long hours In which to ponder and think When another day came even the cattle could not face the storm nor man move from hlB door. It was Thanksgiving day At Uncle Robert's there was n feast to bo sprend: at Hradley's there waB hardly better than poorhouse fare. Put tho victim of tbe nrrldent wub no longer In bed, and the reacuer no longer tared about the weather, and the farmer folks looked at each other and smiled and whispered: "Even If we hnd a turkey and cran berry saurn I don't believe ffiey'd eat a single mouthful They've Just sorter found each other, and are tickled to death " And when at last they could mnkn their way to Turner's, and Uncle Rob stuttered nnd Aunt Harriet cried for Joy. kflsi Minnie nsked In a way that was almost heartless: "Why do you take on so? I never had such a lovely Thanksgiving In nil my life!" (Copyright. 191. by thf MrClura Ncws pnper Syndicate.) ALL SHOULD GIVE THANKS Every Life snd Every Heart In tho Land Has Some Occasion for Gratitude. In their proclamations designating tomorrow as Thanksgiving day, the president and the governors of states have set forth In dignified and due or der reasons why the people of this country should give thanks Rut every life nnd every heart In all the land has some occasion for special utterance of gratitude Formal, offi cial proclamations from tbe highest executive authorities may furnish sug gestlons for equally formal prayers la churches tomorrow, prayers in ac knowledgment of divine favors re ceived by us as a people and as In dividuals. Cruden condenses the teachings of New Testament writers Into bis defini tion of thanksgiving: "An acknowl edging and confessing, with gladness, the benefits and mercies which Got! bestows either upon ourselves or oth ers." As "every heart knoweth Its own sorrow," so evory llfu knows Its own occasion for gratitude. And no heart has so great sorrow and no life so sd mourning but reason for thanksgiving 1b manifested In Just those "benefit and mercies "
