that he would come back with lots of
things peanuts and raisine, and perhaps
some oranges, besides other eatablej
necessary for the Thanksgiving feast.
1 How the little one3 ehouted at th
mention of oranges, for you must know
that such dainties seldom fell to theii
share. Hard work, early and late, or
the little" farm, only sufficed to keep the
family plainly clothed and fed, and they
had very few luxuries.
As the sleigh jogged along the man

So tho day wore on, and when the

them, they had their simple supper of

the wind rising, nnd went to the window
to look out. The moon was partly cov
ered by threatening clouds. While she
watched they obscured the silver light
"It looks mighty threatenin'," slie said
to herself. "I should feel real bad if pa
couldn't git back for Thanksgivin', for
the children has net so much store by
what he's goin' to bring 'em. I wouldn t
feel right good myself. We've eat our
Thanksgivin' dinner together on that
day this ten year, an' I've tillers been
thankful for my man an' children.
There ain't many sech."
Tints her homely thoughts ran on un
til tile light began to grow dim for the
scarcity of oil in the lamp. Then she
prepared for rest, first thanking God for
her blessings and asking protection for
her husband on his journey and a Rpcedy
return on the morrow.
Quiet brooded over tho house and its
inmates, over the little village near which
they lived and over the tavern where the
father lay, twenty miles awry. But not
for long. Tho rising winds, which had
made themselves heard fitfully, now
grew furious. They reveled in the open
stretch of country around the Wilkins
farm, which stood on the edge of the
village, ad chafsed each other across
meadows whose crusted sno-v gleamed
when the clouds wenifjlown for a mo
ment from the face of the moon. Soon
more flakes began to fall, and, what with
the wind and the smooth surface of the
snow already fallen, were blown and
whirled violently about until they threat
ened to hide some landmarks completely.
Mr. Wilkins' little house came in for
a share of the drifts. It wai low and
white and square. Like many houses in
rural New England, its rear door opened
into a shod, liehind which were the barn
and outhouses, so that in case of storms
the livo stock could be easily reached.
The snow played very queer pranks with
the house that night. It left the roof al
most bare, while it piled a drlt in front
which hid all but one corner of tho win
dow. It drifted against the barn door
and hid the shed completely. Fortunate
ly the well was under the shed roof and
thoehiekon house could le reached with
out going out.
When Mrs. Wilkins awoke, her first
thought was of tho night before and her
forebodings of a storm. She tried te
look cut, but the snow covered every
thing. Much frightened, she climbed tc
the loft of the one story house. Looking
from the window, she perceived that not
a person could be Been. The roads were
piled with grreat white drifts, and the
only house in sight, also a low one, waf
partially covered. Over all the sun wai
shining brightly. She saw at a glance
that a sleigh could not get through the
roads on that day and oswibly not on
tho next. Then she went down and
awoke the children.
"What's the matter, mother?" .-aid
"Matter enough," replied "Irs. Wil
kins. "Wo are snowed in, and fathei
can't get home today."
At this little Elsie showed sins pi
crying, and her mother hastened to say
"But we'll have a Thanksgivin' when he
does come, Elsie. P'r'nps he'll come to
She got up, took the child to the win
dow where the world was visible from
one of the upper panes, and held her up.
"The sun s shinin as nice as can' be,
That'll melt all the snow soon, and then
we'll see father an' old Bess comin' down
the road with lota o good things."
This diverted Elsie, and she chattered
gayly whilo Iser mother dressed her,
Boh meantime climbed up and looked out
of tho 6mall peep hole left by the snow.
"There ain't any people passing by,
mother," he announced.
"No, nor won't he" she replied, "not
till the snow's molted pretty consider
"What will we lKive to eat, mother 7"
"There's plenty o' tilings in the house,"
6he said. "We sha'n't starve. Don't ye
be afraid o' that, Bob."
After their breakfast of fried pork and
johnny cake she went to feed the chick
ens. The childien followed her, for it
seemed "kind o' lonesome," as Bob said.
No one passed all day. The sun shone
out warm and bright, and, though they
could not perceive it, was doing slowly
but surely its gdod work for them. Bob
looked out of the one pane of glass so
long that he was tired. And it was no
wonder, for he had to stand on tiptoe on
the window Bill to see out. at all.

Welne6iay had passed slowly to Mr.
Wilkin s in the dingy little hotel where
ho was staying. When he started for
home eaily on the following morning
the hangers on about the door forhoded
all sorta of evil results to hU "foolhardy
notion" of trying to get through such a
snow, but he persisted in going.
"Seems es if I must," he told them.
It waa hard work harder than he had
expected, but old Boss was a strong
horse, and he himself used to rough
Twelve miles were traveled without
incident or accident. The rest of the
way was lonely enough, some of it skirt
ing woods and leading through glens.
It was a wild, beautrful drive In sum
mer, but desolate in winter. Aa Sir.
Wilkin3 drove on, thoughts of ai event
of which ho had heard in town recurred
to his mind: "Judge Carter's little girl
was lost; missing since Tuesday; servant
took herto walk; neither of them seen
since; a tliousand dollars reward t"
These had made little impression on the
busy man at the time, but now, in the
quiet of that lonely drive, they came
back in fragments. He thought of his
own little ones and of the awful weather
that had prevailed since Tuesday, the
day he had left home.
He was startled from his reverie by
the sharp barking of a dog. It seemed
to come from an old building off from
the road, which, situated near a pond,
had once been used as an ice house. lie
listened. Yes. that was the place from
which the noise came, and the barking
sounded as if something unusual had
happened. The ice house was deeply
filled with drifts, which lay thick be
tween it and the road. He couldn't get
through easily. It would hinder him in
hia jonr'iey, too. Perhaps he wouldn't
see home that night, he said to himself.
So he drove on.

horse with the sleigh robe and striking
out for the house. It was a struggle
even for the hardy farmer. As lie neared
the place the barking grew louder. The ,
door on tho side toward him was almost
covered, so ha made for. the rear. That
had been sheltered from drifts by the
building, and a small door was accessible
there. As he opened it a handsome New
foundland dog rushed out, jumping on
him and whining for joy. Mr. Wilkins'
eyes, dazzled by the snow, could at first
see nothing, but the dog pulled him
toward the most sheltered corner of the
place, where a four-year-old girl lay,
white and motionless.
Mr. "Wilkins dropped down beside her
and felt her hands, head, and finally
her heart. The little one was not dead,
as ho first thought, and his chief care
was to revive her. Being utterly ex
hausted, all he could do at first was to
fold her in his arms under his overcoat.
Presently he started for the sleigh, fol
lowed by the faithful dog whose devo
tion had perhaps saved the child's life.
He was anxious to reach tho sleigh, for
he had bethought himself of a bottle of
milk which his host had put up with a
lunch for him. That and the air seemed
to revive the child. She clung to him,
crying, until the dog poked his noee into
her hand as he sat beside them on the
sleigh seat. Then she smiled and tried
to pat him, calling .him "Nelo," her
word for "Nero," which was the name
on his collar. As soon as she had recov
ered sufficiently to sit up, Mr. Wilkins
drove on towards home, planning to
send word by the next person that passed
his house bound townward, ljpr ho felt
sure this was Judge Carter's lost daugh
ter. His work was not over when he reached
home, and saw the little group waiting
in the window for him. It was necessary
to shovel his way in. His wife threw a
rope to him from the loft window, at
taching a shovel on the other end bo that
he could haul it out. When the way was
clear he brought the now sleeping child
in, and told how he had found her and
the 6tory he had heard.
Then what a talking and running to
and fro commenced! The baby must be
petted and fed and put to sleep, and the
handsome dog must receive some atten
tion. THK DEUGHTS OF HOME.
"Will you tell us your name, dear?"
said Mrs. Wilkins to the child, as she
took Jier In Ikt arms.
"Name, Nellie," said she, and, mire
enough, her gold pin was k engraved,
"Mary," "ride," "doggy" &ud "big
raito," were all she could say pi alary
about where nho liad be-u. Perhaps no
one could understand her ewe t prattle

After drinking a cup of tea which his
w.fe had prepared while he worked, Mr.
Wilklha started out to get his horse and
sleigh under cover. This done, he pre
pared for a pleasant evening with bia
fam'ly. After the children had asked
que.-na to their heart's content about
his adventure, tlwj talk drifted around tc
" We haven't had any Thanksgiving,
father," said Elsie, as sho sat on bis knee.
"I- think we have, child," said Mrs.
Wilktns. "Isn't it Thanksgivin enough
to see father back safe? That's better
than all the dinners we could eat."
"Nevermind, Elsie; we'll keep Thanks

"An' have lots to eat," put in Bob,
"What did you bring us, father?"
"You jest wait till morning an' see,
Bob," said Mrs. Wilkins.
Wlien morning came they found the
oranges and raisins and all the good
things, even to the figs, and to tell of
what a feast they had, and how jolly
they were, and how the little stranger
enjoyed it with them, would be a long
It was not hard to interest their near

had kept Thanksgiving on the right day,

As lind been announced. Dr. K. K.

Lxvii P.talm. The D xtor t-aid thai the
prayer of David as givcu in the lValm
contained two idea: first tha duty of
the nation j rf the 'Earth to slorify
with praise and thanksgiving ; second
that as a result find would bless us and
the earth woul' yield her increase.
Kcxt Thursday is a great National IIo!
ulav a day of tbanksgivugfor the Na
tion, therefore wc will speak of our cause
for thankfulness as a Nation ns well as
individual. There are those who cu
tei tain the opinion that as a Nation w:
have nothing to do with God and that
God takes no coguizaucc of us as a Na
tion. It is uue that some of our worst
men have been selected te fill high sta
tions anu that for a time our government
has been conducted with British and un
holy aims and ambitions, that laws hare
been placed upon our statute books that
oppressed weak and suffering humanity,
outraged common justice and seemed to
disregard all dependence upon a higher
power, but despite these occasional ab
normal and dexlorable condition?, when
the great national heart is aroused ami
throbs out its liue impulses it stamps on
the face of our national life the evidences
of our dependence upon the great Ruler of
nations and shows that the foundation
reck of our government is placed on the
great bt ok of books.
The proclamation that set' apart next
Thursday as a day of prayer ai'd thanks
giving and CACi y other official document
is Cated 1889 (or some other year) anno
domim year of our Lord. Thus olli
cially bearing testimony every day to the
divinity and supremacy of Christ of the
God head Trinity. Take the American
dollar, on it is stamped, in addition to
the many devices, the words "In God we
trust" ; and this the coveted measure of
value goes lorth to the world as an evan
gelist of truth and a preacher of the
Christian Faith of the founders and
rulers of our more perfect Union of this
assemblage of free and independent
Christian commonwealths; and fo on we
might go multiplying the evidences of
the Faith that is in us that God Almigh
ty holds in His hands and disposes of the
destiny of nations sooner or later ac
cording to their merit's.
But to come to our subject our causes
for thanksgiving leaving all our local
conditions and causes,we will notice only
three of the great reasons for national
joy and thanksgiving: First, we, as a
nation arc at peace with the other
NATIONS OF THE EARTH.
Do wc fully realize how much tht
means? Look at the dangerous and
terribly unsettled conditioa of Europe
to-day. Despotic liussia and luud-
1 worshipping England, with gigantic
strong armies, standing like tremendous
I bull-doss, watching and growliug at each
' other, ready at the least provocation for
a tremendous and direful conflict. Ixiok
at restless France and stubborn Germa
ny with their respective friends and al
lies watching each other in the same
significant and dogged manner. To the
north 1 us is a part ol the dominion ot
that same grasping and territorj'-loving
John Bull : to south oi us is tne unstable
aud mongrel population of Mexico, com
posed of six distinct nationalities, and
the wavering South American countries
in one of which has just occurred a sig
nificant and inieutv revolution, while mst
