for, as yet,
low had not ar
rived at the dig
nity of one of
its own -catno fully freighted hoth in
kide and out. There were children and
children's children, who, in tho pursuit
of fortune, had strayed away from the
liomes whore they first saw tho light,
Lut who were now returning to revive
around the old familiar hearth the as
sociations and recollections of their
( 2rcat were tiro preparations among
tho housewives of Custleton Hollow.
That must indeed he a poor housohold
which, ou this occasion, could not ltoast
its turkey and plum pudding, those
well-established dishes, not to mention
its long row of pies apple, minco and
pumpkin wherewith tho Thanksgiving
hoard is wont to ho garnished.
Kiit it is not of tho households gen
erally that I propose to speak. Let the
reader accompany mo in imagination to
a rather prim-looking brick mansion
situated on tho principal street, hut at
some distanco hack, being separated
from it hy a front yard, llctwccn this
yard and the fenco ran a prim-looking
hedge of very formal cut, being cropped
in tho most careful manner, lest one
twig should by chanco have tho pre
sumption to grow higher than its kin
dred. It was a two-story house, con
taining on each story ono room on cither
side of tho front door, making, of
course, four in all.
If we go in wc shall find tho outward
primness well supported by tho appear
ance of things within. In tho front
parlor -wo may peep through tho door,
but it would bo high treason, in tho
present moistened slate of our hoots, to
step within its sacred precincts there
are six high-backed chairs standing in
state, two at each window. Ono can
easily see from tho gcnoral arrangement
of the furniture that from romping chil
dren, unceremonious kittens and unhal
lowed intruders generally this room is
most sacredly guarded.
Without .speaking particularly of tho
other rooms, which, though not fur
nished in so stately a manner, bear a
familv resemblance to "tho best-roDm,"
we will usher the reader into tho oppo
site room, where wo will find tho own
er and oecupant of this prim-looking
Miss Hetty Henderson is a maiden of
feomu thirty-fivo summers, attired in a
soler-lookinr dress of irreproachable
neatness but most formal cut She is
the only occupant of tho house, of which
likewise she is tho proprietor. Her fath
er, who was the village physician, died
some ten years since, leaving to Jlelty,
or perLaps I should give her full name,
Henrietta, his only child, tho bouse in
which he lived, and some four thousand
dollars in bank stock, on the income of
which sho lived comfortably.
Somehow Miss Hetty had never mar
ried, though, such is the mercenary na
ture of man, tho rumor of her inheri
tance brought to her feet several suitors.
Hut Miss Hetty had resolved never to
marry at least, this was her invariable
answer to matrimonial offers, and so
MISS HETTY BEG AX TO THIJfK".
after a time it came to be understood
that sho was fixed for life an old aiaid.
What reasons impelled her to this coarse
were not known, but possibly the reader
will be furnished with a clue before he
finishes this narrative.
Meanwhile, the invariable effect of a
single and solitary life combined at
tended Hetty. .She grew precise, prim
and methodical to a painful degree. It
would have been quite a relish if oae
could have detected a stray thread even
upon her well-swept carpet, bat such
was never the case.
Oa this particular day this Thaakfi
giviag day of which we are speakiaf
Hiss Hetty bad completed her culiaary
preparations, that is, she had stuffed
her turkey and put it in tho oveB, aad
kataded her pudding, for, though but
oae would be preeeat at the iiaaer. aa4
that herself, her coaacleace wool aot
have acqaltted her if sha had aot made
all the preparation to which she had
beea accustomed oa such occasioaa.
This done, she sat dowa to her kalt
tinjf, castiag a jrlaace every bow and
then at the ovea to make sure that all
was going oa welL It was a quiet morn
iaf , aad Miss Hetty began to thiak to
the clicking of her kaittiag needles.
"After all," thought she, "it's rather
solitary taking diaaer aloae, and that
on Thanksgiving day. I remember a
long time ago, when my father was liv
ing, and my brothers and sisters, what a
merry time we used to have round the
table. But they are all dead, and I I
alone am left!"
Miss Hetty sighed, bat after awhile
the recollections of these old times re
turned. She tried to shake them off,
but they had a fascination about them
after all. and would not go at her bid
ding. "There used to be another there,"
thought she, "Nick Anderson. He, too,
I fear is dead."
Hetty heaved a thoughtful sigh, and
a faint color came into her cheeks.
She had reason. This Nicholas Ander
son had been a medical student, appren
ticed to ber father, or rather placed
with him to be prepared for his profes
sion. Ho was. perhaps, a year older
than Hetty, and had regarded her with
more than ordinary warmth of affection.
He had, in fact, proposed to her, and
had been conditionally accepted, on a
year's probation. The trouble was, he
was a little disposed to be wild, and
being naturally of a lively and careless
temperament, did not exercise sufficient
discrimination in tho choice of his asso
ciates. Hetty had loved him as warmly
as ono of her nature could love. Sho
was not one who would be drawn away
boyond tho dictates of reason and judg
ment by the force of affection. Still, it
was not without a feeling of deep sor
rowdeeper than her calm manner led
him to suspect that at the end of tho
year's probation sho informed Ander
son that tho result of his trial was not
favorable to bis suit, and that hence
forth he must give up all thoughts of
To his vehement asseverations,
promises and protestations she returned
tho same steady and inflexible answer,
and at tho close of the interview ho left
her quito as full of indignation against
her as of grief for bis rejection.
That night his clothing was packed
up and lowered from the window, and
when tho next morning dawned it was
found that ho had left tho house, and,
as was intimated in a slight noto pon
cilcd and left on tho table in his room,
never to return again.
Whilo Miss Henderson's mind was far
back in tho past, she had not observed
the approach of a man, shabbily at
tired, accompanied by a littlo girl, ap
parently some eight years of ago. The
man's faco boro tho impress of many
cares and hardships. The littlo girl
was of delicate appearance, and an oc
casional shiver showed that her gar
ments wore too thin to protect her suf
ficiently from the inclomoncy of tho
"This is tho placfl, Ilenrietta," said
tho traveler at length, pausing at tho
head of tho graveled walk which led up
to tho front door of tho prim-looking
Together they ontored, and a moment
afterwards, just as Miss Hetty was pre
paring to lay tho cloth for dinner a
knock sounded through tho house.
"Goodness!" said Hi Hetty, flustered,

Somehow, too, the appealing; expression

of the little girl's faco touched her, so
sho threw tho door wide open and bado
Miss Hotty went on preparing the
tablo for dinner. A most dqlightful
odor issued from tho oven, ono door of
which was open, lest tho turkey should
overdo. Miss Hefty could not help ob
serving the A'istftil glances cast by tho
little girl toward the tempting dish as
sho placed it on the table.
"Poor littlo creature," thoug'ht she,
"I suppose it is a long time sence she
had a good dinner."
Then tho thought struck her: "Hero
I am alono to oat all this. Thero is
plenty enough for half a doaen. How
much tbeso poor people would relish it"
Ity this time the tablo was arranged.
"Sir," said she, turning to tho trav
eler, "you look as if you wore hungry
as well as cold. If you and your little
daughter would like to sit up, I would
be happy to have you."
"Thank you. madam," was the grate
ful reply. "We aro hungry, and shall
bo much indebted to you for your kind
ness." It was rather a novel situation for
Miss Hetty, sitting at tho head of the
table, dispensing food to others beside
herself. Thero was something rather
agreeable about it.
"Will you have some of the dressing,
littlo girl I have to call you that, for I
don't know your name, she added, in
an inquiring tone.
"Her name is Henrietta, but I gener
ally call her Hetty," said the traveler.
"What?"' said Miss Hetty, dropping
the spoon in surprise.
"She was named after a very dear
friend of mine," said he, sighing.
"May I ask," said Miss Hetty, with
excusable curiosity, "what was the
name of this friend? ' I begin to feel
quite an interest in your little -girl,"
"Her name was Henrietta Header
son," said the stranger.
"Why, that is my name," ejaculated
"And she was named after yoa,' said
the stranger, composedly.
"Why, who in the world are you?"
she asked, her heart beginning to beat

While Nicholas was speakiag, Hetty's
mind was filled with conflicting emo
tions. At length, extending her baad
frankly, she said:
"I feel that 1 was toe hasty, Nicholas.
I should have tried you- longer. Bat,

"I can only acceptyonr generous offer

"And what is that?'
"That you will become my wife.
A vivid flush came over Miss Hetty's
countenance. She couldn't think of
such a thing, sho said. Nevertheless,
an hour afterwards tho two united
lovers had fixed upon the wedding day.

Marriage has filled up a void in the
heart of Miss Hetty. Though not so

be, sho is a good deal happier. Throo

Thanksgiving day. Yankee Blado.
Somethlug- of the Orlgla and History at
Of all our National holidays, we have
only one that is unique. Christmas and
New Year's we celebrate in common
with the bulk of Christendom; Wash
ington's birthday finds iti counterpart,
in many countries, anl wo are not the
only nation, by long oddi, that cole -
bratcs an independence day. But, so
far as wo know, no nation has a day set
apart for tho giving of thanks for the
mercies and blessings received from tho
Giver of all good.
In other countries there are Thanks
giving days, but thoy aro ceiobrated at
irregular intervals and owe their origin
to peculiar causes.
Somo years ago, England had a
Thanksgiving day over tho recovery of
the Prince of Wales from a severe ill
ness, and similar thanksgivings have
boon held in all European countries.
In Russia, when tho Czar escapes one of
tho numerous attacks on bis life, a
Thanksgiving day is appointed to give
thanks; and in Oriental countries it is
usual to appoint days of thanksgiving
to colebrato such weighty events as the
coming of ago of tho rulor's eldest'son,
tho marriage of his daughter, the birth
of an heir, and so forth. But tbeso
days have nothing in common with our
The first Thanksgiving day of which
wo havo any record was held in
Plymouth Colony when Governor Brad
ford was at tho head of affairs.
In tho autumn of 1031 the exact data
is uncertain tho Governor sont out
four men to gathor game, so that tho
whole colony might "rejoice togethor"
after thoy had garnored tho fruit of
their labors. Tho following year (1G32),
at tho same season, after tho abundant
harvest was collected, tho colonists as
sembled, and, according to an old chron
icle, "solemnized a day of thanksgiving
unto the Lord."
At this celebration, according to tra
dition, Massasoit and his court attended
and feasted with the whites.
Then Thangsgiving day seems to
havo been forgotten until 1031, when it
was revived under peculiar circum
stances. Tho harvest of tho previous
year had boon very poor, and during tho
winter provisions of all kinds were so
scarce that tho colony was in actual
danger of starvation. Tho 83d of Feb
ruary was apppointod to bo obsorved as
a fast day, but, before that day came, a
vessel arrived from Europe, laden with
provisions. Governor Bradford was
quick to takn advantage of tho changed
state of affairs, and issued a proclama
tion changing the day of fast to one of
feasting. This was tho first Thanksgiv
ing day by regular proclamation.
New Nethurland (afterward New
York) observed Thanksgiving day oc
casionally, and Governor Kieft pro
claimed a public thanksgiving to bo
held in February, 1G44, on account of a
victory over the Indians; and again in
1G45, because of theconclusion of pcaca
Thero wero occasional thanksgivings
in tho several colonies for the next
hundred years, but no general observ
ance until tho time of the Revolution.
In those gloomy days, when ono might
suppose that tho struggling colonies had
littlo to bo thankful for, the Continental
Congress issued an annual Thanksgiv
ing proclamation, from 1775 to 1783, in
clusive. But thero was no fixed date, varying
from as early as April 6 to as lato as
December 11. Tho later date occurred in
1770, when thero wero two Thanksgiv
ing days; tho first being on May 16.
Washington, as General of the army,
issued a proclamation for Thanksgiving
by the Continental army on December
IS, 1477, and again at Valley Forge, May
7, 177S; and during his Presidential
term ho appointed two' Thanksgiving
days November itf, 1780. and February
This custom was followed by sno
tessive Presidents, from time to time,
but President Lincoln was the first
President to issae a Thanksgiving proc
lamation on two consecutive years.
. Gradually the State executives fell
into line, so that the custom is aow gen
eral in all parts of the Republic, and
Thanksgiving day is now a legal holi
day. The observance of Thanksgiving, at
first a day of rejoiciag, gradually be
came a religious ceremony, especially
daring the Revolutionary period. Then,
with more prosperous times, it devel
oped into a day of rejoicing aad family
reuaioas, and in New Englaad almost
eatirely supplanted Christmas.
At the preseat day it is a miaer
Christmas, wherein religions observ

The giving of presents has never pre

In tho way of developing that great

Mr. Blaino suggested that tho beat
modo of resisting retaliation or un

Mr. Blaino said that it would be much
more satisfactory to the section from

treated tho provinces. Tbcy might

LOST AT SEA.
The British CraUer Serpent l.ost at Men
With All on Board Kieept Three.
Lomiox, Nov. 13. Tho British tor
pedo cruiser Serpent has foundered off
tho coast of Spain. The vessel was a
twin screw steamer of 770 tons and 4,500
horse power. Sbo carried six guns
The Serpent was lost at a point twen
ty miles north of Cape Finlstore.
Out of a total of 350 souls on board
only thrco wero saved.
The Serpent wont on tbo rocks dur
ing a storm on Monday night A hoavy
mist prevailed at tho time of the dis
aster. Owing to tho violence of the
storm it was impossible to sond assist
ance from tho shore
Tremendous seas swept thCdecks of
the doomed vessel, carrying away group
after group of the unfortunato men on
Tho news of the wreck was convoyod
to Corunna, a distanco of sixty miles,
over mountain roads
The Serpent's complement was 170
officers and men. Tho others on board
were going out to relieve men now on
ships on tho African station.
The three persons saved from the
Serpent aro sailors who swam ashore at
Camarinas, They express the belief
that all tho others on board were
drowned but only four bodies have been
washed ashore as vet Thero is no tel
egraph station at Camarinas.
The Serpent was built after tho ideas
of Admiral Kay, who insisted upon an
immense horso power, which, according
to previous notions, was out ef all pro
portion to her displacement. She could
maintain a speed of seventeen knots an
hour. Lord Brassoy in his naval annual
adversely criticises the vessel. He ssld
that economy of weight had boon car
ried to excess in the construct. on of the
ship, that ber p ating was too thin and
that her armament was overdone. In
a sea way, ho said, her heavy top weight
would be a detriment to her speed, and
would unduly strain her hull. The
vessel was 225 feet long, while she had
a draught of 14K feet The relatives of
tho crew of the Serpent at Plymouth
and tbo dockyard people are full of
gossip about the lost cruisor. It is
claimed that she was unseaworthy aad
she broke down on all her tr al trips
Commander Rcss Is said to have been

Talking of patent medicines
you know the old prejudice,
And the doctors some of
them are between vou and us.
They would like you to think
that what's cured thousands
won't cure you. You'd be
lieve in patent medicines if
they didn t protess to cure
everything and so, between
the experiments of doctors,!
and the experiments of patent!
medicines that are sold onlv
"stuff," you lose faith in every
iking. And, you can't always tell
the prescription that cures by
what you read in the papers.
So, perhaps, there's no better
way to sell a remedy, than to
tell the truth about it, and
take the risk of its doing just
what it professes to do.
That's what the Worlds
Dispensary Medical Associa
tion, of Buffalo, N. Y., does
Golden Medical Discovery,
Pleasant Pellets, and

If they don't do what their
