THE ORESSED TURKEY. One of the parish sent one morn A farmer kind and able A nice fat turkey, raised on corn, . To grace the pastor's table. The farmer's lad went with the fowl. And thus addreswd tne pastor: "Dear me, if I ain't timi ! Here is A gobbler from my master.' The pastor said: "Thoo shoatdst not thus Present the fowl to me; Come, take my chair, and for me act, And I will act for thee." The preacher's chair received the boy. The fowl the pastor took Went out wiih it and then came in With pleasant smile and look. And to his young' pro tern, he said: ' Dear sir. my honored master Presents this turkey, and his best Benprcu to you, his pastor." "Good nald the boy; "your master to A gentleman and scholarl My thanks to him, and for yourself, Here is a half a dollar 1" The pastor felt aronnd his mouth A most peculiar twitching; And to the gnbhler holding fast, He "bolted" for toe kitchen. He gnre the turkey to the cook. And came back in a minute. Then took the youngster's hand and left A half a dollar In it. to follow uim. "Does bo need wGisky or bread"' I thought. I determined to find out, and so I beckoned htm into a dark corner around the barge olHco. The firea of hope must have betu enkindled in feim, for two tears rolled out of his eyes and I fancied I could hear them fall spat! spat! upon the stones. "Are you hungry?' said I. "I didn't eat anything in three davs," he replied. "Are you dry?" "No, sir; there's water in the park." "Is your favorite restaurant near by?" "Yes. sir. ljrtn Greenwich street." "Well, come along." And as we went toward his restaurant I pumped him by the way. 'Twas a long and sorrowful stnrv he told. His name was (Jcorge Moore, and he was a Cornish miner. j "limes was better, sir," said he, "when I came to this country eight year ago. Ye aee, I heard there was money to be made iu the roul mines of Pennsylvania, an', like a fulf, I came here. There was three of us Nellie and the baby and my self. IVar heart, when 1 think of how my Neilie looked when we landed at Castle Garden eigbt jears ago, with the rosea in her checks and the tight in her brown eyes, and she m hopeful, sir, that we would make a small fortune in a few years" Here lie panned if to choke back the emotions which were sweeping over him like a tiood. Then he continued: "Just eight years ago today 'twas, air. I bad dollars in my pocket then. Good, hard English pounds, and the smell of roasting turkey as we went by the restaurants didn't hae the effect upon me then that it has today, sir. Well, we went to Shamokin, in Pennsyl vania, I had no difficulty in getting work, and we were getting along nicely when 1 was taken sick. Then all the money melted away like hoar frost. The sickness lasted six months, and because of poor food and weakness the baby died. Alter that things went on from bad to worse, until Nellie sickened with the con sumption. Then I cursed the country and the mines. But it did no good, for my wife went like the baby, and since she's gone, sir, I'm all broke up." TWO THANKSGIVINGS. T Is mv belief. I founded on a long and varied expe rience, that a man should never give money to a beg gar. As a princi ple, the practice of indiscriminate almsgiving is sub versive of true philanthropy. Of course there are exceptions to this rule, but in the main I think mv argument is sound. But I am folly per suaded that if pressed to do so, I could not give good, sound reasons for my be lief, and I confess that I often violate my creed. The fact is, that in the discussion of great fundamental ideas like those of religion or sociology, I find then to be like a creek in the mountains. Follow the creek up, and you will find innumerable brooks babbling into it from innumerable hollows between the hills. Each brook is filled with the sparkling product of God's distillery, each rivulet adds something to the volume of water in the creek flowing onward to the sea. But I have not the time nor the genius to explore all the?' treams of thought to their source, acd so I take the sunshine as he sends it, the water as he brews it, the laughter and the tears as they are cooked at his good pleasure. And sometimes very often, in fact I find mv setf violating "the conclusions of cold ethics and giving money to a beggar. This much before 1 tell my storv. The incident here recorded occurred on a Thanksgiving Pay not many years ago. 'Twas a cold November day in Battery park, New York. The snn 6hone feebly from behind a bank of clouds, vet the air was keen and bracing. It brought color to the cheeks and brightness to the eves of sorue twentv i.Hers seated upon the benches. Most of the persons in the park were apparently of foreign extrac tion. A little Frencnman, wrapped in a cloak and who took frequent pinches of snuff, formed a striking contrast to a brawny 'longshoreman in a blue blouse and overalls. Another picturesque group was formed of a Bulgarian mother with her three children, aliens who looked upon the evidences of a new civilization with fear and distrust. The ret of the occu pants of the park were bits of fiotsam and jetsam of humanity common in every large seaport town. The day of Thanks giving was unknown to them. For the most part they were drinking of the lees of life and had routing to be thankful for except the material fact of a cheerless ex istence. While watching thi drift fmm alien shores and won lering vaguely what were the actual conditions surrounding these heroes my attention was drawn to the shambling figure of a man coming up one of the aisles of the park. The sun came out for a minute and made bin distinctly visible in all his abjectness. For he was the oct wrc: died looking man I bad ever seen. Hi derby hat was brimless, his once blue blou.-t had lost all of its orig- It S S r-.- ' If I COCLD SEE HIS BTOOP SltOL LLRS HEAVE. Here he stopped, and it seemed to me that he gathered his failing powers to gether, as if ne were about to inve ex pression to a great thought. Then he blurted out: "An' she were a good woman, sir, an I loved her: "And whet have you been doing sines ner death: saitl l. "Oh. just knockin' around doin an odd job here an' there starvin' mostlv. Part of the time on the island for vagrancy. In the winter time' sleepin' in the police stations an in the summer ou the docks. I've a rich relative in Michigan, a mine owner. "Why don't you apply to him for assis tance? said 1. "Because I'd die afore he'd know the shape I'm in. By this time we had reached the door of one oi those modest and unconven tional eating houses where the menu is painted on a board and set outside the door. We entered and he sat down at a table. Ilia unexpected good fortune had paralyzed turn, and the prospect of square meal had robbed him of speech. w hen the lrow?y waiter asked mm what he would have he couldn't reply, but sat gazing at the waiter dumbly as a sheep might look at. its executioners. Then I ordered for litm a big dish of vegetable soup. v hen it was placed before him, with islands of potatoes, carrots and cab bage floating ni it, the savory steam arwe and dilated his nostrils and a wolfish glare came into his onion colored eves. So famished was lie that, there being no spoon handy, ho seized a knife and plunged it into the mess, and while he :e there seemed to w a lump m fcm throat which prevented his swallowing. While, he was busv with tins dish 1 or dered a big plate of roast beef, and the alter brought two cuts which looked as if thev had been taken from the forehead of the critter. This was flanked by ,h of meaty potatoes, bursting their brown jackets, and a bowl of coffee al- m(si I M g eiiougu to ise a oam in. As Mwerv gazed upon tins feast, which in Ids estimation was plenty good enough tor the gods who sat upon Mount Olvnr pus, hii eyes tiled again and this time the tears fell. Whfn 1 asked for the bill the proprietor handed nie a check for the mu nificent sum of CO cents, which I discos ered was scheduled rates. Well, old fellow. I must go," said I, after settling the bill, as 1 reached out my hand for a parting sligkef. He reached otit a grimv list, and when it left mine there was a silver quarter in his palm. He was lust about paving his respects to tne roast new, out t'ns princely gift choked him up po that he laid his head upon the arm of the oije blue blouse. I u!d sj his stotip shoulders heave, and, although there was no 'oiind. there were plenty of signs ot a.i citcnml com motion. Even now, comfortably situated as Tarn, j I often take out the quarter and jingle it. ' The sound is always comforting, and so I find that Thanksgiving Day is not con fined to the last Thursday in November." Still this giving money to a beggar is a bad practice. Ens est Ja&kold. TWO MEN'S THANKSGIVING REVERIES T Mr. Romain'a fine country house there waa a great Than k s g i v i n g dinner. Wits, authors, actors and artists of high degree were to grace the board; for, be It known, Mr. Ro main is famous. His books sell the world over. Pens less renowned than his own hang upon his favors. The guests went np the broad steps and were ushered Into the handsome parlors, lira. Romain received them; but the great author was not to be seen. The truth was Thanksgiving was an anniver sary of which he never spoke to a soul; and although he intended to be as cheer ful and entertaining as possible to his menus, he bad been overtaken bv melan choly reminiscence. It bad all come from reading a little old newspaper, too. Lighting a cigar be walked out and strolled toward the hills. If his stylish wife and C'ViVc1 guests had been able to photograpn his mind just then thev would have ieen surprised. He was thinking of a Thanksgiving twenty years ago. He had been very noor then but his early love, his first wife, was with him. He was thinking as he strolled back and forth on the lawn this morning mat that i hanRsgivmg was the haomer. The little poem he had just read jingled through his mind, it seemed to have been written especially for him: We were paupers, she and I, And the bread was hard to win; But our garret, near the sky. Let titxt's purest sunlight in. She was meanly dressed, you see, In her faded cotton gown. But her smile was heaven to me. And I never saw her fron n. We wen younp, and life was sweet. Ami we loved each other more When there scarce was food to eat And the wolf was at the door. There was always hope, you know; We could dream that skies were blue, "B-)t my darling had to go Just before the dream came true. The verses drifted through Mr. Ro mains mind like far off bells, making sweet, sad music, he was back in the garret near the skv." and the nicture seemed sweeter to his fancv than all his fine possessions of today, lie wished he were poor again, if poverty could bring back his early love and his youth. With this thought in his mind he sighing turned toward home. In a shabbv little honse on a lonesome hill waa a grav haired, dim eved man. wno looked out ot a window and saw Mr. Romain strolling idlv bv. He, too, sighed. "I don t understand the rulings of this world," he said, "There is Romain, he has everything he wants. Money and fame have come at his call. Twenty years ago I was rich and he was poor. Kow, r am growing old in poverty, which i nave not Drought upon mvseli bv dissi pation or recklessness. If I could only go uacK twenty years to anotner l hanks givog. and ne sighed again. nomain went hack home to his dis tinguished guests. The man who envied him turned to his table of pork and beans. coin envied tne past. Mr. Komain was still dreamily nnm- mmg some lines trom the newspaper poem as he went up the steps of his handsome-house. They were these: And we loved each other more When there scarce was food to eat. And the wolf was at the door. Naomi Tkext. Is Consumption Inenrabel Read the following: Mr. C. H. Mor- ns.

It is a fact estab lished by the testimony of thousands of people, that Hood's Sarsaparitla does cure scrofula, salt rheum and other diseases or affections arising from impure state or low-condition of the blood. It also over comes that tired feeling, creates a good appetite and gives strength to every part of the system. Try it. Fashionable Americans will avoid Lon don this season.

The Dog and the Conductor. Just as the car was starting a black dog with immense whiskers, which stuck out like an Elizabeth ian ruffle around his head. jumped on the platform uninvited and slipped under the seat. The dog was a mon grel, apparently, and a waif of the streets. The only parson who took an interest in the animal's movements was the conductor. Re spectfully and firmly the conductor asked the canine intruder to come out. The dog didn't show any disrespect particularly unless it was involved In his persistent refusal to leave his refuge under the seat. When the conductor went to the forward end of the car and clapped his hands and cried: Bh h get out!" the dog calmly ran down to the other end of the car, care fully keeping under the seat all the way. The process was repeated 'without change, with the positions of dog and conductor re versedthat is, the conductor stood at the entrance of the car and the dog ran up to the forward end. After a session of this sort for about ten minutes the conductor quit, although the dog showed no signs of fatigue. It was very amusing to watch the dog, whenever anyone got out and left him exposed to view, fly into ambush again behind, the aether limbs f some other passenger.
