Wo cannot show a grand array Of toothsome things Thanksgiving day The day so very near; Our little pautry will not boast Delicious viands by the host To every palate dear. 'Neath weight of all the good things known Our little table will not groan, No, not the very least; Our little home will not ho blest With many a welcome joyous guest To help us at the feast. Yet, notwithstanding what we lack. We'll not regretfully look hack And sigh for better days. But wc will fill in every part The spacious store-rooms of our heart With gratitude and praise. We'll count our present blessings o'er, And we shall find they number moro Than all our trials do; Our happy, thankful thoughts shall bo Delightful guests right royally They will reward us, too. To seats wc once did occupy We'll not look up with wistful eyo And covetous unrest, But, bepding lower down our gaze To poorer homes, to sadder ways, manx uou wc are so blest. Thank God that though our home is small It still contains the dear ones all, Rich in affection's wealth; Thank God we have enough to cat. Thank God for clothing warm anil neat, Thank God for perfect health; Thank God wc feel the fire's warm glow, While many cold and tireless go In many a cheerless home. Oh, yes, most gratefully we'll lift, Our souls to God for every gift, Aim trust tor an to come. Thus 'round our frugal little board, With cheerful hearts we'll "praise the Lord And keep the jubilee; Nor shall there anywhere be found Within this Nation's utmost houud A happier family. N. F. Graphic. .. THE KIND TURKEY-MAN. It was the evening before Thanks- Tliu Run lind gone down behind the hills of Greenville, leaving them cold and bare against the dull sky. The squirrels were safe aud warm iu their own little houses, craekinir nuts for their thanksgiving dinner. The trees waved their tall, bare branches iu the biting cold, but they knew tl.nt their roots were sheltered by the kind earth. The cold wind shouted a merry "good evening" to everything, as he rushed over the frozen ground. lie raced over the bare hills ; the squirrels drew closer togethor, and exulted over their crowded store house; the trees bowed a stately good-night, and ho whisked away; but he calmed down as he met a little figure on the frozen road, and gave her time to draw her faded cloak tighter over her1 blue hands, before he rushed on again. A wagon was heard. 'vRattle, rat tle!" Kvcn the wagon is cold, the child thought, as she heard the loose spokes rattling in the wheels. She stepped aside for the wagon to pass, the driver, a pleasant-looking man stopped his horse, and ask ed whither she was goiug. "To the citv," answered the child. "To the city!" cried the man. "Why you will never get there, un less you are blown there, or I take yon." "Will you take me?" she asked, not eagerly, but like otic accustomed to refusals. His answer was to reach down his hand to help her up. "Now," said he, ns he put her un der the heavy buffalo-robe, "what's your name?" "Mary only Mary," she answer ed hastily. "Mary," said the man softly, more to himself than the child, "I wish it hadn't been that." "Why, there's lots of Marys," said the child. "Yes, I know it," he said. "I had a little Mary last Thanksgiving. I I don't like to see auy one named Mary in trouble." "I ain't crying," said the child, smiling, "because I'm in trouble, but cause I'm so cold. I ought to have trouble, Granny says." "Ought to have trouble, bey !" said the man, stopping his horse, and drawing from under the buffalo-robe a cau of hot coffee. "That hasn't been off the stove more than five minutes," he said, as he filled a little tin cup and handed it to her. "Take that, and drink to your Granny." "It is very nice," she said, when she had drank it all. She did not say, I have tasted nothing before to day. Why should she, when there had been so many days like this in her short life? The man replaced the can, pulled the robe up even with her chin, and told the horse to "get up" and "go along;" then he whistlod awhile; then he said, "It is mighty cold. I hope it will keep bo!" "O, don't!" exclaimed the child; "'cos it makes turkeys cost so much, poor folks can't have any." "Don't you care auy thing for me ?" cried the man, pathetically ; "here's my wagon full of turkeys." "I didn't know you "were a turkey-man," she said, gently. "Yes, I am a 'turkey-man,' and 1 think even poor people can afford to buy a turkey once a vear, if they are high. The turkey-men have been waiting a year for this day." There was a twinkle in his eye she did not sco; he looked down on the little pale face. "I am afraid you dou't care for the turkey-men !" he said, soberly. She hung down her head, started to say something, but stopped. "Well, what is it?" he said, laugh ing. "I do like you," she answered, earnestly; "but the poor people I have knowed them always." They rode on for awhile in silence. The hot coffee had worked wonders ; the blue little hands had stopped shaking, and the child smiled as she saw the city lights in the distance. "Now, you are a little more com fortable," 6aid the turkey-man, "let us hear where you are uoiug, and what your other name is." "My name is only 'Mary,' and I am going to find my cousin." "Nonsense I" he said, a little sharp ly. "Of course you have got a name." "They call me 'Mary Kent,' but I hate it, and I won't have it!" she cried, passionately. "Why did they call you that?" he asked, gently. " 'Cause my father ran away, and left me in Granny Cole's house, when I was little. Ho pinned a paper on my dress that said ou it, "Left to pay the rent." The turkey-man whistled, and asked if Granny Cole was good to her. "Pretty kind," said the child, wearily. "Anywav,8ho didn't 'spiso me, like Sally did." "Who may Sally be?" asked the turkey-man. "She's Granny Cole's daughter." "Did Granny Cole gcihI you alone to the city ?" said he, watching her suspiciously. "She told me the other day," said the child, mournfully, "If I ever came home aud found her gone, to cro to the city and find my cousin. Yesterday she sent me off with Sally, and when I came back Sally ran away from me, an' I couldn't find Granny." "Are you quite sure you can find your cousin?" She looked up in his face, and laid her thin hand on his sleeve. "I never saw my cousin," she said, calmlv. "If Or.innv hut rim away from me I haven't anybody I know." "Why, then, did you come to the city?" said the turkey-man, wonder ing where he could leave her. "I know the city best," she said; "Granny used to live there, till a week ago. It is dark in the country when yo! have to stay alone I There are the market-men see how bright they are!" It was the night before Thanks giving, iu the city as well as in the country ; the markets shone, as they always do the evening before the great feast. Never were garlands more green, never apples more red, nor gobblers more plump. The turkey-man drove up and stopped. "Here is as far as I go, little one," lie said, j,s he lilted her out and stood her safely iu the bright light of the market. She was a pretty child, but pale now, with bine lips and shaking hands. "Poor little thing," he muttered ; "I wihh they hadn't named her Mar)'," as he entered the market. The market-men beamed on every body. They rubbed their hands as customer after customer vanished with the cold form of some kind of fowl neatly covered, all but its feet, in brown paper. It was growing late; the turkey man had sold out; he waited only to get a hot supper before starting for home. He had been thinking entirely of dollars and cents ; but as he walked out of the market, he thought of his home, his wife wait ing alone for him iu the great white house, and his little Mary safe in God's home above he had forgot ten the homeless child left alone outside the market. A heavy hand was laid on his arm "Stand back a moment!" whispered a voice. lie looked up and saw a large policeman watching a child at a barrel of red apples. It is his little fellow-traveler. "That's a sharp youngster!" half laughed the policeman, under his breath. "This sort of thing is going on here all the time. Nothing is 6afe." The little bluo hand was already on an apple. It faltered a moment, then grasped it tightly, then drop ped it. She hid her face in her hands. Then the turkey-man stepped up to her and touched her shoulder gent ly. She had not seen him; but without looking up, the child knew who it was it was the only friend she had. "I couldn't do it ! Oh, I couldn't !" she sobbed. "Hut I'm so hungry !" and she fell against the barrel. The stars were shining cold and clear. The turkey-man's wife was looking out, and wishing the ther mometer could go up without the price of turkeys going down. "It is so cold for John riding from the city alone!" she said to herself. She opened the door, hoping to hear the wagon ; but the cold wind sent her back to the blazing fire. She tho't of a year ago, when she did not sit waiting alone. She imagined she heard the littlo voice, though it had been hushed nearly a year how plainly she 6aw the sweet face, though it had beon covered 60 Ionr! She wiped the tears from her eyes as she heard the rattling wheels; John must not see her sad. She opened the door, holding the lamp high above her head. The turkey-man came in, with something wrapped in the buffalo robe; he laid it on the big dining table. "Don't say no!" he cried; "let us do something for Mary's sake, this Thanksgiving!" "Arc you crazy?" 6he exclaimed as he uncovered the pale face. "Wait till I tell you all," said the turkey-man. When he had told his story he said, earnestly, "IIow could I go to church to-morrow and thank God for his care of us, if I, with no little one to care for, had left this child alone in the great city?" "You did right, John," said his wife; "you always do." With these words, the woman good practical soul! hastened to wash and the kind turkey-man went to take care of his horse. "I remember this house," said the child, as she looked out of a large blauket before tho bright fire. "I saw it one day with Granny Colo; I stopped and looked through the fence, and threw stones at tho tur keys. I didn't know he was a kind man then. Grauny hates rich men I wonder where Granny is I'm sorry I threw the stones but they wasn't so very big." The little head fell lower and lower; the palo lids closed ; tho little bauds grew quiet; but the little voice repeated in sleep, "I didtf t know he was a kind man." Saryent Flint, in St. Nicholas. Imitation of Chrlitt. Christ, in establishing a religion, passed beyond a single house or home, and through the long and prosperous career of that roligiou has entered into a civilization, and thus his spirituality lies upon the world to-day, lies as sweet as Shaks peare's moonlight, which slept upon the bank. To illustrate the relations between such a philosophy as that of Jesus and the decline of physical or mate rial aims and ends, note the changes in the costumes of men which have taken place since Christianity begau to enlarge the estimate ol mind. Not all of such reform must be placed to the credit of religion, for common sense would perhaps have grown, even had Christianity never appeared; but this I claim, that, such a being as Jesus Christ per vaded the nations, "common sense" found in him a powerful leader and companion, who helped win a quicker and broader victory. The purple and fine liucn have disap peared from the dress even of Kings, aud gradually all men have put aside rinjrs and jewels and personal decorations. The men of the nine teenth century attire themselves with perfect plainness, compared with all the civilized past, becauso gradually has escaped the loug hiddeu fact that a man is great only in mind and soul. Next to the influence of Christ upon the mind to exalt it, and upon the body to simplify its forms of life, may be reckoned His power to group men into one brotherhood, lie is always binding into one fam ily earth's alienated and scattered children. He, beyond all others, binds slates aud races aud families aud souls into one. He lifts meu up above that wherein they differ, aud btiugs them to that height where all agree. In the stricken places iu the South the faithful black aud the faithful white, the rich and the poor, are just now blended into one humanity, becauso the solemnity of the hour has ren dered visible the soul in which all men are one. Thus for many ages Christ has moved among men a sublime spectacle, almost a solemn unfolding of those vastue3ses where all arc brethren. His divincness has given Him authority; His phil osophy has given Him intellectual weight; His love has made the world love Him iu return ; nis death has drawn perpetual tears; His doctrine of heaven and hell has lent to His name deep solemnity. By this power lie lifts the millions above their dissensions, and en thrones them amid their harmonies. What the world most needs now is a form of religion which shall melt all its articles into one. "The limitation of Christ" not that por trayed by a 'Kempis, which impris oned the Divine One in a gloomy cavern, but that broader imitation which shall build the many stones of the soul's temple up in one cem etery. It is to be hoped that our world is approaching a Christianity which will furnish the marts of business and the halls of legislation, and the chairs of Presidents aud the thrones of Kings with Christian-like men. It is to be hoped the time is coming when a man will be esti mated not by his riches or his sta tion, but by his absolute moral worth, and that no epitaph for the dead will read more eloquently than the simple words, " His life was Christlike." David Swing. Hott Odd llomentss .TIade a Mayor. John Gregg came to Mr. Will's store, and asked "Do you want a boy, sir?" "Can't say as 1 do," replied Mr. Wills; aud as he seemed busy and not inclined to talk, John walked away. A few days after he came aud said, "I don't like to be idle; and if you are willing to try me, sir, I will work without pay, till I get a situ ation." Mr. Wills agreed. What wa9 his surprise on going into his store, next morning, to find his ill-assorted goods all arranged, shelves cleaned, windows washed, aud many things done which iu the busy season had been neglected! John had riseu early, and done all this ! "Why !" said Mr. Wills, "I hardly knew the place." He soon found that he could not afford to part with John. So great were his habits of system aud order, he could accomplish a vast amount of work; doing at odd moments what would otherwise have been left undone; never neglecting a greater duty for one less important ; never behind hand ; never requiring to be looked after. Mr. Wills paid him for his work, and told him not to leave till he could get something better. The consequence was John 60on became master of a flourishing wholesale store, and finally mayor of a large city. What is better than all, he ruled righteously and in the fear of God. He was a poor boy ; but his hab its of order and system causing him to find more time than most people raised him to his high po sition, while his good character made him respected by the whole community.
