suggested. "It's high time that old

I'd best hitch up an' drive down to

Aunt Nancy turned tho big turkey
over laboriously. "Why, yes. Pa," she
said, "you better go. Give Marietty

Tho next morning when Unclo

Into tho kitchen and lifted his chin

"Anybody." asked Uncle Isaac.
"Did you say anybody, Nancy?"
Aunt Nancy started swiftly toward

said, as she opened the oven door
with a clang and poured hot water
Into the sizzling roastlng-pan. Her
rosy face peered Into the big, savory
"Yes," she said, "ask anybody you

Uncle Isnac drove off to meeting
with n merry Jingling of sleigh bells.
Ho chuckled to himself as he drovo
along. "I shouldn't wonder if Sllns
Plummer would bo lookln' kind of
lonesome today," he sold. "Great
guns'. Who'd ever think I'd take to
mntchmakln' nt my time o' life?"
When the Thanksgiving sermon
had been preached and the last hymn
sung, the congregation moved toward
tho doors. Silas Plummer buttoned
his overcpnt and prepared to go his
lonely way. But Uncle Isaac, unhitch
ing the old white horse, called to him.
"Hold on, Sllns." lie said, "don't
you want to ride along with mo? An',
say, by the way, Nancy said she'd like
first-rate to have you eat Thanks

Silas Plummer hesitated and was
lost. "Much obliged, Uncle Isaac,"
he said; "you aud Aunt Nancy are

Isaac, jovially. "Come, pile In here

But privately Uncle Isaac wasn't

thought, "mebby I've gono an' put my

how It turns out. ir Nancy scolda,
I'll tell her the poor fellow looked
lonesome, an' suro enough he did."
The cutter stopped at the side door
with a Jingle of bells. Aunt Nancy
enmo to the window and looked out.
"Of all things!" sho said to herself,
"what In the world possessed Pa to

a desperate move. "Marlotty," she
said when she' returned to the kltch'i

into tho settln'-room nn' put some

Marietta stopped chopping cabbngo

In tho sitting-room the wood lay
on the rag t:nrpet at Marietta's feet
She stooped to pick It up, but Silas
was already gathering tho sticks' to

hands, touched, and they looked at
"Marietty," he said, "can't we over
look tho past? Can't wo be friends
again?" His earnest dark eyes wero
looking Into hers with the old look.
Marietta held out her hands, and he
caught them In his. Tho next nu
ment his arm was around her and she
was crying softly upon his shoulder.
He was smiling at her in the old
way which used to bo so pleasant to
her until thnt misunderstanding cam
between them. He took her hand
and led her into the sunny kitchen
whero Aunt Nancy was about to take
Uncle Isaac to task.
Tbe good old people started in as
tonishment as Marietta and Silas en
tered hand in hand. The lovers look
ed ten years younger.
"Aunt Nancy," said Silas Plummer,
'you an' Uncle Isaac have made a
real Thanksgiving for me."
"An' me too!" chimed in Marietta,
with blushing cheeks. "Oh, Aunt
Nancy, we've made it up an' we'ra
as good friends as ever!"
She looked proudly up at the tall
figure at her side. Love was in her
eyes love and pride. And in tho
face of Silas Plummer was a look of
happiness which had long been a
Tho dinner was a great success.
The big turkey was roasted to a de
licious brown, the cranberry sauc
was rich crimson, the mashed pota
toes whito as snowdrifts, and the
Hubbard squash a golden yellow. Tho
mince pie was Aunt Nancy's best,
and the coffeo was of her famous
brewing. It was a glorious dinner,
and Uncle Isaac said so after the
guests were gone.
"But land, Nancy! I believe them
