"I'm sure. Sam don't mean to be un

to defend their absent boy. "You was

rather wild. I5ut I have faith in Sam

"That's the way with you women,"
KTtinted Silas. "The wuss a boy gits

And 's if this wan't enough, the best
steer on the place must lav down and
die, just when I was a needin' him to
haul in the fodder. Thar hain't his

"Oh well, father, you said you was

We'll get the fodder hauled somehow.

Silas got up as he spoke, put away
his pijie aud went into the sitting-room.
He picked up the county paper and lay
down upon a lounge by the window.
Though he ignored attending church,
he did not feel like going out to work,
but grumbled himself into some sort of
interest over the market reports. The
sound of Mrs. Ware, t her work in the
kitchen, mingled softly with the gen

wandered slowly over the farm, notic

fences and the general poverty of the
soil. He felt more than ever what an
il-used man he was. Nothing good
could he see in anything.
"And yet Maria thinks we ought to

sense a woman has."
On the way back to the house he
passed through the barn. The mate to
the dead steer looked at him mildly,
from over the manger.
"I'll make sure of you ter-morrer,"
grumbled Silas. "You'll have to make

He went through the woodshed and
into the kitchen. Everything was in
order, yet the house seemed strangelj'
silent within, though outside the wind
mourned dolefully. In the kitchen,
the fire had gone down, though the tea
kettle was on, and in the cooling oven
lay the Thanksgiving turkey.
"Plague take it!" exclaimed Silas,
after examining into the state of the

culinary affairs. "Ef Maria hain't got
to be as shiftless as the rest."
He pushed on into the sitting-room,
charged with a connubial reprimand
Hut as he opened the door, he stumbled
against something soft and yielding,
yet which sent an unaecouutable shiver
from his feet to the very crown of his
head. Ho looked down. It was a wom
an's recumbent form. With a great
fear at his heart he bent down, turned
the pale, white face to the light, Then
staggered back, trembling in every
limb, while cold drops stood out upon
"You Maria?" he gasped, as with a
sudden wild hope he shook the still
form violently. "Wake up, Maria.
The idea of you agoin' to sleep and let
ting the turkey get cold in the oven "
No response. The figure that had
worn itself out working for him lay ns
nerveless in his arms as a block of
stone. The closed eyes, tho purple
lips, tho drawn, white features, told
their terrible story. His wife was dead
- dead ami he had parted from her
not two hours before, with selfish
grumblings upon his lips.
Silas Ware rose to his full height, and
uttering a hoarse, inarticulate cry. fell
back upon the lounge from which he
had recently risen. Thanksgiving day!
At breakfast he thought himself an ill
used and an unfortunate man.
"Oh. God! Oh, God!" he moaned
"What would I not give to have it all
All what? What but Maria his
wife, the faithful companion of the
toils, the joys and the sorrows of
thirty years! What did he care
now for all other troubles and
1 losses? They were invisible leneath
the overwhelming cloud of this one
great loss. Without her nothing would
be good. With her, all other trials
were trivial, lie knew it now; he re
alized it m every agonizing quiver, as
his heart recognized and felt its utter
and hopeless loneliness.
And even this was not the worst. If
he had parted from her with a smile
instead of a frown in kindness rather
than with reproach, the agony of sepa
ration might be blunted a little. Hut in
the coming years he must go down to
meet old age alone, the memory of his
harshness would ever be stinging.
"If I had only known." he cried,
dragging himself upon his knees to her
side once more: "if I had only known!"
Known what? If he had only known
how great his blessings were, in the
possession of his true, tender, patient,
faithful wife! Hut he selfishly declined
to know; and now the curse of his eter
nal deprivation must wither him for
ever. "1 cannot stand it!" he faltered
brokenly. "Merciful God! How can I
stand it? JSo. no! 1 will not! Take
anything else. Lord. Take cattle, land
take money and home take children!

"Maria!" he fairly shouted. "Then
you're not dead after all?"
"No. fatherl Who said I was? The
doughnuts surely must have disagreed
with ye, for I heard ye when I was
basting the turkey"
"Then the kitchen fire hain't gone

began to ring. Almost simultaneously
came a crisp sound and a peculiar odor
from the kitchen. Mrs. Ware rose to

went out and returned directly with a
well padded envelope bearing a Mon
"I sivon!" exclaimed Silas, tearing it
open, "ef it hain't from our Sam. 1

A lithographed square of paper fell
to the floor, as the two old people bent
over the letter
"Uead it, Maria," said Fanner Ware.
"Seems like my eyes are failiu' faster

Hut the mother's eyes too, were
moist. Spectacles, however, were
found, and from the cramped lines,
Sam's good wishes and loving expres

floor. 'Nd he's comin home Christ

done to desarve all this? Hut it's all

Half an hour later they were walk
