Jamlo IJngln stood on the platform of o I llttlo railroad station far out In the. farmlnR regloni of New Jersey. Ho was a pale , thin llttlo fellow of 14 years , although he looked much younger than that. And ho had corns from New York In order to buy a turkey for Thanksgiving day. Of course ho could have purchased one in N'cw York , hut he had very llttlo money has than a dollar ana & big policeman had told him he could get a turkey very much cheaper on a farm than In a great city market. Jamie livid with his mother and his sister Mary , and the baby Sunshine , In ono of th great , high tenements on the Hast fldo , where poor people have their homes , and whore th y crowd In such great numbers that they never yet have been counted. Ills father had been drowned at sea two years previous , and to make matters worse his mother was sick In a hospital and there watt nobody to take care of the little glrl.i but hlm-self. There was nobody else nt the rail road station , but the conductor of the train told him that a man named Peter kept n farm down the road and that he sold tur keys and chickens. "And that's where I'll go , " said the boy. "First thing to do Is to find where the tur keys are , and then eco about buying one. " H was a long walk , a very long walk , to with them , too , and nobody wa reft at home , Thcro was n sudden tug at * his pole , so heavy that ho was almost pulled out of the tree. Than tbero was another and another , until three turkeys tud two chickens were squawking and flapping around on the ground , as If they had suddenly gone crazy j for hi Bwullowlng kernels of coin each , , one of them had swallowed a fUuiiook. Jamie braced his feet against the trunk , of the tree and held to the polo ( or dinr fife , while turkeys and chkke'Js fougp.t and flopped and gobbled and squawked In the most fe.irful manner. Then , wlthou' warn ing , they ceased their noise and ntsoJ per fectly still In a circle , looking at cacn other , blinking and trying to decide wl.lcb was responsible for the awful utate of affairs. Jamie Improved the opportunity to tilde down to the ground , still hoMIng Ust to Ms pole. Then ho wrung the neck ot onu fowl after another and tied them tcgothcr , and , putting the heavy weight an his back , started for the nearer railroad sta'.on as fast as he could go. It was not very long after this that a carriage pulled by two splendid bay horses came down the road from the opposite di rection. A coachman eat on the box , and within the carriage was a lady dressed In black which made the gray streaks In her hair look almost white. A heavy veil cov ered her face , but tears silently stole from her closed eyes a's she leaned her head back ngalnst the cushions. Her right hand held a .tingle- white rosebud. She had just placed others on a little grave. Her only child her boy with golden hair and blue cyea- had been laid to rest the day before Thanks giving of the preceding year. Suddenly her carriage stopped with such force that the horses reared , and she heard Her coachman cry out : "Quit , Peter ! Leave him alone ! " The woman hurriedly looked 'out of fcer | carnage , and saw the chickens and turkeys lylnj near her wheels. Yonder a red bearded man his face bloodshot with rage , his tips moving Involuntarily , his great hands 'Working nervously stooped toward the road where lay a thin , palo little lad , ragged , dirty , motionless ; his eyes were closed , his face was white and above bis left temple there was a mark getting more and more purplish. All this the lady saw In a single Instant. Then she sprang from her carriage and with one bound was by the hoy's side. Her hand quickly tore open hla coat and shirt and 'elt his heart beating. "He's * alive , " she said , quietly , looking up nto the man's face , as ho straightened and trembled under her steady gaze. "So t's probably a long term In the penitentiary you will get Instead of being executed. I will Inform my husband , the judge , when lie returns home this evening. " Peter , for be was the -man , shivered and choked as hi > tried to reply. But the Judge's wlfo spoke first. "Quick ! " she commanded , "lift the child Into my carriage and lay him on the rear scat where I can steady him. " III. When Jamie opened his eyes he was some what surprised , for he lay on a couch In a room filled with sunshine and pictures and curtains and a beautiful lady was sitting besldo him , while two other ladles ( only they wore white caps and spotless cuffs ) wer doing this and that about the room. The toy's head was somewhat dizzy from Peter's cruel blow , so the beautiful lady onl'mnlled when ho said faintly and asked "Where are they ? Where are the tur keys an' chickens I Oh. Mary and Baby Sunshine won't have no Thanksgiving after all ! " Weak and half sick , Jamlo sank to the couch and burled his head , so the beautiful lady wouldn't eee him "crying tears down his cheeks , " as ho would have raid. The beautiful lady stroked his hair with her soft white hand and spoke to him soothingly , BO pretty soon ho ceased sobbing and lord her all about himself and about Mary and Uaby Sunshine waiting for their Thanksgiving - giving dinner , and about his mother , sick In the hospital uptown. Now the beautiful lady was a very wise lady , and almost before Jamie had finished she had ordered her carriage In haste. Then she directed one of the maid tcrvants to make ready to start with her at once for New York , and she ordered a man to accompany - company them , and cho left a note for her husband , the judge , eaylng she had gone on an errand ot mercy ami expected to bo homo late on the theater train that night. When they stepped out of the ferry house In New York Jamlo and the beautiful lady and the maid stepped Inside a carriage , while the man eat outside next to the coachman , and thus they were driven to the tenement In KMridgo street , where Mary and Baby Sunshine were waiting. It was almost dork when they reached the tall , crowded tenement , but the beau tiful lady and her servants followed the little boy tinder the arch and through the courtyard to the rear tenement and up one long flight of stairs after another to the very highest story , where they found the little sisters eating bread and bologna eau- sage for suppor. And not untlt then did Jamie notice that the lady's man carried a square basket with two covers , and he was so busy explaining everything to Mary .and Sunshine that ho didn't eee the lady's maid unpack the hamper until the table was covered with a white cloth and on It were placed knives and forks and spoons and glassed. I There was a plate ot cold tongue at ono end of the table and -white bread near by I and a nice pat of yellow butter and another of honey and three great sealed bottles ot milk. Then they sat down to such a meal as the children had not eaten for a long time. Before they had finished the lady had found out just where Jamie's mother was and ho wrote her a letter , saying she was going to take the little folks out to her home that night to spend Thanksgiving'day and would bring them In town to see her at the hospital the day following. She did all this and more , too , for Mrs. Dugtn grow strong and well In a few weeks and , as she hnd been a fine buttermakcr In England 'bo.'oretha ' married her salbr hus band , the beautiful woman took her out to New Jersey and gave her a llttlo cottage to live In on one part of her great estate. During the summer Jamie helps to take care of the poultry there , but In winter he and Mary attend the school which the beautiful lady has started for the children of her ten ants. And you may bo sitro that they and Llttlo Sunshine arc having a. much happier Thanksgiving week this year than last. JOB TANNER'S ' THANKSGIVING DINNER , lly ItOl'H ItAMlXG. ( Copyrighted , 1S68 , by the S. S. McClure Co. ) "You can't give a Thanksgiving dinner this year , Brother Job. That's sure , " "Can't hey ? I'd llko to know what'9 to hinder. " Mrs. Ablgal Skinner raised her hands In horror. "Now Job. you know the Tanner "LAY A THIN. PALE LITTLE LAD , RAGGED DIRTY , MO'J IONLESS. " Peter's farm , , where the turkeys were kept , and Jamie's feet were blistered and sore by the time ho arrived. Hardly had he walked ' In the howevqr , when a great Clack dog , 'growling and snapping and show ing his teeth , came bounding across the dooryard. Of course Jamlo was frightened , and he climbed Into the branches of an apple tree as quickly as If ho were n monkey. The llttlo 'boy , trembling with terror abovelt > the branches , was so Intently watching the dog that ho did not notice the approach ot a short , heavily-built man with bushy hair and a thick , red beard , who kicked the dog until the poor animal howled with pain and lunk away. When the dog really had gone , ' [ however , Jamlo was not so frightened , and be called out : "Are you Mister Peter ? " "Yes , I am , " the red-bearded man answered , looking up In the tree. Then ho caught sight of itho boy's torn clothing and old shoes and ho liuw Into a passion. shouting : "Como out o' that , you young tramp ! Git down hero quick , or I'll tear the tree up by the roots and slam ye down ! " Now , Jamie was much moro afraid of this angry man than of the dog , but ho wan a New York street boy , who had learned a great many useful things ; and one of them was the folly of letting any one see you arc afraid of him , no matter how terrorized you really are. So , Instead of coming down to the ground nt once ha eat perfectly still for a moment and then asked , as calmly as he could : "Is Is < hls the way you treat all of yout customers ? " "What's that ? " eald Peter. "Is this the way you treat all of your cuitomors ? I came hero to buy a turkey. " "Oh , you did ? " "Yes. " "Moro llko to sneak l the house nnd steal something , you young villain. Anyhow. there ain't no turkeys for sale. The Thanksgiving lot Is gone long ago to the city and them out there In the pens Is sold for Christmas trade. " "Can't you let mo have one ? " asked the boy. boy."No "No , " said Peter. Jamlo slid down to the ground nnd stood silent for a moment , 'thinking deeply. Then ho spoke again. "Docs that lake out there In the big field back of the trees belong to you ? " "Yes , " said Peter , "but U ain't no lake- It's a duck pond. " "Well , If I can't buy a turkey can I go fishing there ? " "Flshln ! " roared Peter , throwing back his head and laughing until his face was redder than his beard. "Flshln1 In the duck pond ! Oh , dear , yes ! You're welcome to all the fish you ketch there and to all the turkeys that bite your bait , too ! " "Can I , really ? " the boy asked again , and Peter replied : "Yes Indeed " , ! x II. Jamie went from the farm straight to a Btore near the rallioad , where he bought six fishhooks and a long line nnd a bamboo rod Then he purchased some crackers nnd cheese for supper , nnd before It was fairly dark ho lay fast asleep In the haymow of a barn near by. Half an hour after he awoke next morn ing ho was sitting In the branches of a tree on Peter's farm. He bad cut the fishing line Into five pieces , and on due end of cad : piece bad fastened a hook baited , not wit ) : work or grub , but with two or three kernels of corn. And the other endj ot the five lines were tied hard and fast to a polo , the ; butt of which Jamie held firmly as ho sat up there In the tree. Another curljus thing was that some one had sprlukled corn from i the tree to the pens where the turkeys and I ducks were kept ; and some one had actually opened the penal Lastly , about fifty tur keys , and sixty chickens were fighting each other * In efforts to gbbble the corn , and they were coming from the pens toward the tree as fast as they could swallow the kernels. Jamlo happened to look far across the flcMs and saw Peter and his wife and son drlva oft down the road before he had dared to try bU plan. They were taking the black dog ; Thanksgiving dinners are noted among our relatives. You don't mean to tell mo that you'd dare to give a dinner to our family the Tanners while Sally Long docs your housework.The Idea Is1 outrageous. " Mr. Tanner made no reply. For the space of , two minutes sllenco reigned In the sit ting 1 room of the Tanner farmhouse a si lence j broken only by the ticking of the clock nnd the drowsy purring of the big maltese cat as she arched her back for the slow stroking of her master's hand. At last Mrs. Skinner spoke with a degree lees than her usual assurance. "Of course I'd do most anything for you. My years of service to you have proved that. Under the circumstances T am euro Mr. Skinner will consent to overseeing the preparations. I win como Monday and " " 0 , I wouldn't think of putting you to the trouble , " her brother Interrupted her to say. "You tell about years of service ; that's enough. " Mrs. Skinner's thin dark face flushed , and giving dinner cooked by Sally. Let me " ' BCC. He had paused at the foot of the steps which led to the wldo veranda. The Noc vembcr sunshine lay , warm and mellow , over the brawn fields , heaps ot russet leaves bordered the. roadside and the voices of the men at work In a field near by came to him on the clear air. His eyes swept the familiar landscape. Suddenly ho started. "If thii only wouldl Mary's a prime cook and they say she Is glad of a chance to earn a llttlo money. Poor Mary ! It's a shame Clemens didn't leave her cuoush to take care of herself. Well , I'll go over and see her this evening. " Mr. Tanner's supper strengthened this resolution. The dining room of the Tanner house WOB a pleasant place , with a bay wint dow looking to the south. Dtlt the bread was underdone , the steak was burned nnd the cabbage salad contained neither salt nor vinegar. Then the sugar bowl had been filled by the absent-minded Sally with salt , a fact not perceived by Job -until Jie gulped down n swallow of coffee. JIo pushed back his plate. "Sally ! " ho called , sharply. There was a startled cry from the kitchen , accompanied by a fall nnd the sound of breaking cartJienware. The next moment Sally put her head In at the dour , an injured look on her face. "I'd thank you not to speak so sudden- llko again. It makes me nervous. " "What have you broken 'this time , Sally ? " ' 'Nothln' , only a plate that belonged to them air dishes , " pointing to the dcllcato ' lilac-wreathed dinner set that had belonged to the mother of Mr. Tanner. Ho rose from the table nnd left the house. "Fifty years old , plenty of money , but no Tidine , " ho thought , as ho made his way down the ) road toward the little brown cottage which he had that afternoon observed from his porch. Here lived the Widow Clemens. She and Job had been schoolmates and warm friends. There had been V time when he had hoped that they might be still more to each other , but a misunderstanding hid arisen between them , nnd brforc It was explained she was the wlfo of Will Clemens. Her llfo had been one of poverty and toll , for Clemens had been an exacting invalid many years. Ho was dead now. Mary lived on In the little home , eking out a slender ncomo by assisting her neighbors with their work. The door was opened by Mrs. Clemens herself. She was a plump little woman with soft black eyes and a sweet voice. "Why , Job , I am glad to see you. Walk in. I'll have to .give you a seat In the kitchen , na there Is no flro In the other room. " He looked around him. The floor was covered with a rag caipet , the tiny stove was black and shining , and the entire room was In perfect order. "How cozy you are here , Mary ! " Then ho plunged at once Into his trouble. He told of his firm determination to give his usual Thanksgiving dinner nnd his still firmer resolve not to accept Ablgal's proffered help. "I want you to como and plan It all , " ho said In conclusion. "You can have all the money to spend and all the help you want. 'I don't mean that you shall work hard. Will you help me , Mary ? " A dcllcato pink flush colored her check. "Mrs. Skinner , what will she , say ? " "It's none of her business. Say yes , Mary. I'll pay you anything you like. " She raised he'r head a ll'ttio proudly. "Of course , I will ask you "no niore than any one else " she began"but ha.broke'ln ' gladly : "Which moans that , y u H come. Thank you , Mary. " . , , , ' All the way homo Job Tanner was con trasting the cozy little House he had Just left with his own spacious but lonely abode. Meanwhile Mrs. Clemens was assuring her self that she was regarded by her late caller only In the light of a capable servant. II. She wont to her field of labor early on the Monday morning before Thanksgiving. Sail ? was a warm admirer of Mrs. Clemens and helped lnrher usual careless fashion. Those days of bustling activity were very pleasant to the master of the houso. All things for which Mary asked were provided , oven to a box of cut flowers from a neighboring city. She sighed once or twice. This lavish expenditure- contrasted sharply with the rigid economy she was obliged to exercise. Thanksgiving morning dawned , gray and THE PROPOSAL ACROSS THE DINNER TABLE. she moved uneasily In the ciwhloned rocker. "You'll have to have my help , Job. Sally .can't cook a dinner fit to set before our family. " "Seo here , Ablgal , " and Into the shrewd , but kindly blue yes of Job Tanner came a look his sister understood , "there's no use | talking about this matter. I shall give my i usual Thanksgiving dinner , nnd I shall no : I need your services. Skinner Is coming down j the hill. You better get your things on. " j Mrs. Skinner sniffled audibly ns she donned her hat and shawl. "I never thought things ; would come to this pass , " she murmured , but i her brother took no notice of her words. | He accompanied her to the gate and stood j watching the team of his brother-in-law I until It disappeared from sight over the crest of a hill. Then ho walked slowly toward the J great white house which had been the home I of the Tanners for many generations. His face was thoughtful. Notwithstanding his brave worda to Mrs. Skinner , ho was troubled over the forthcoming dinner. Job Tanner bad never married. In his early manhood his only sister had been left a widow with four small children. Her i I share of their father's property was gone , so Job unhesitatingly offered herself and family a home. For twenty years he had I | cared for them , educating the children an.i submitting to Ablgal's exactions. | | At last the boys and girls were all settled j In llfo. Then their mother married Mr. I Skinner. She was a grasping , covetous 1 woman and , upon learning that her new t husband was a far less wealthy man than | the had supposed , tried to retain her olden i sway over her brother's domestic affairs , I "I don't see my way out of It , " Job ad mitted to himself , "Thanksgiving ls only teu days off. Sally's good enough In her way , but she Is a poor cook and no kind ot a housekeeper. That was Ablgal's strong point she kept my house well. I'd as soon have Sally's work , though , at to have Ablgal's scolding and whining. But It will j never do to set company down to a Thanks- overcast. About 8 o'clock Job entered th house from the barn. "Mrs. Clemens , she said for you to com In the dlnln' room and BOO how tUns looked , " was Sally's greeting. When ho opened the door ho stood speech less. The old room was transformed Into bower of beauty. The bay window wa filled with evergreens nnd adorned wit yellow chrysanthemums and silver-leave begonias from Mary's home. The qualn old mahogany sideboard was fillet ! wit choice bits of china and silver , qutverln molds of amber jelly , a massive silver cak basket filled with slices of rich , dark frul cake and a bowl of scarlet carnations. Th long table was spread with fine linen an ornamented with smilax and roses. On low vlpe-draped stand between the side windows dews was a pyramid ot apples , oranges am bananas. j ( Job drew a long breath. It appealed to th j | j love of the beautiful which had so Ion , lain dormant In hla nature. "It all looks good enough to eat. And s do you , " ho wont on , noting her well-fUtln brown gingham dress , white apron and pin ribbon at her throat. "Mary , you make m home a paradise. Stay hero as my wife. " She grow very pale. Twice she essayed to speak , but the words died on her lips. It was not until bo came nearer that she found her voice. "No , No. You ask me because you are sorry for nu1 , and your home Is lonely. I cannot j I be your wife on these terras. " "I < Jo not sco why you cannot. I will be good to you , Mary. " Sbo smiled , although her lips quivered plteouely. "I know you would , Job. There Is something else. " "Not another man ? " t "O , no. Please don't ask me any more. " "I have a right to know. You must tell me why you cannot be my wife. " There waa a crava dignity In his voice that she could not gainsay. She must tell him the truth. "llccauso I love you , Job Tanner. Nay , do ! not Interrupt me. You would , Indeed , bo I good to me , but I know too well the result of a union where the love la all on ono < side , and so I will not be your wife. Now , not a word more 'on the subject. I have 1 outraged my sense of womanly pride , but 1 you made me speak , " and before ho could recover from his astonishment she h.vl 1 taken rcfugo In the kitchen. The guests began to arrive In a short tlmo. Job had no opportunity for another word with Mrs. Clemens. One fact was plain to him 1 , Mary had refused htm. Such a dinner as they sat down to. The turkey t nnd chicken pie were perfect , while the t various vegetables , pickles , Jellies , the pumpkin i and mince pies , the huge sugared doughnuts , the fragrant coffee , and the great 6olclen-hearted ! Indian pudding brought words i of warmest praise from those as sembled nround the tablo. Only Mrs. Skinner was silent. Bitterness filled 1 her heart. Surely the eccpter had de parted from her hands. Could It bo possible that Job would ever do such nn outrageous thing 03 to marry ? Perhaps jt would be as well to ten him that the Widow Clemens woa extravagant and drop a hint about his making i a will. Then Mrs. Skinner frowned. Somehow hints had llttlo effect on Job of ' late. Dinner over there was an hour of social j Intercourse. Then the guests dcpai ted. i' When Job re-entered the house , after seeing the ' last load drive off , ho found Sally wnt'hj j I i Ing the dishes. The look upon her face , as j ' elF as the reckless manner In which she andlcd the china , assured him that Borneft ling was wrong. "Whcro Is Mrs. Clemens , Sally ? " ho naked. Sally paused , dls > hcloth In one hand and a alt-washed plate In the other. "Where , In- eed ! " He recognized the tone as one that larked the height of Sally's displeasure. Slio's gone homo. lrlv ) off by that slater ot oura. Humph ! I'd Jest like to give Ablgal kluncr a piece of my mind. I como right car doln' It , but Miss Clemens the lamb lie begged mo to keep still. " A llttlo skillful questioning put Job In pO3- 'sslon ot the facts. Mrs. Skinner had cn- orcd the kitchen and plainly expressed to [ rs. Clemens the surprise nnd Indignation f the family concerning the widow's prca- nco nt the farmhouse. 'Said ' as how they were an Mylu' aa how ho was a throwln' of herself at your head , " ally went on , Betting down a tureen with o much violence that it fell Into pieces. You needn't look at that air dish , Job Tan- er. I'd like to throw every ono of your hlna dishes at Ablgal Skinner's head. Mary lomena wouldn't marry you , nohow. If ho would , you'd bo a bigger fool than you Ir now not to take her and eay , 'Thank you , ' oo. " Job did not tarry for any more words , 'idling ' his hat well down over hie eyes , ho pened the door nnd set off at a brisk pace n the direction of the Clemens cottage. To think of Mary being Insulted llko that n his house ! And by the sister to whoso ntcreats the best years of his llfo had been given ! Upon reaching the homo of Mrs. Clemens ho walked In without knocking. The lamp was lighted and Mary was In the sitting room. She sprang up , hastily wiping her eyes. "I know nil about It , Mary , " lie began. 'There Is not a word of truth In Ablgal's cruel speech. She1 Is Jealous , and aud , dary , there Is something else. " She looked at him wearily. "Pleaso don't say anything more. After my mad words of this morning the greatest kindness you can do me Is to spare mo the mortification ot seeing you. " "But It Is what you call-your mad worda that 1 must speak about .once , Mary , " he said , gently , yet In such a masterful way that she could not but listen. "I've made a discovery slnco morning. I again ask you to be my wife ; not because I am sorry for you , not because I long for the comfort your 'presence will bring Into my home , but because I love you. " The color receded from her cheeks. "No , no. You are mistaken. " Ho took 'both ' her trembling hands In his firm clasp. "I've loved you all these years. Mary , but never understood until today whal made my llfo so empty. Ah , this Is a real Thanksgiving ! " And Job Tanner gathered the woman ho loved close In bis arms. NEW IJIIMITllKHIA CL'UE.

Medicine these days Is making such strides that the cure of today Is supplanted by the cure of tomorrow , nnd new discoveries revo lutionize the theories and practices of treat ment. It Is well that our best physicians nro slow to accept Innovations , says the Baltimore American , for often the remedies heralded with the loudest acclaim soon dis appear , and It is a risky thing to try ex periments on human life. At the same tlmo that Beems to bo about the only way by which real progress may bo made.
