A Unique Thanksgiving Sermon
The minister's wife chlvercd when elio
heard hor husbnnd announcs from the pul
pit, on that Sunday ir.urnlrg, that thero
would be a donation party at the par
sonsgs on tho following Thursday evonlng.
"I wonder whst they'll bring this time,"
she thought. "Last sinIng they brought
beans. We saw beans, thought beans, and
ate beans for months, and there's still
enough on hand to Inst an ordinary llo
tlme. If It should be beans this time,
Ilcnry'K hsvs to quit the ministry and
go Into the produce business."
"Whst do you Intend to taKeT" the doc
tors wife QKkod of Mrs. Deacon Jones,
"I think I'll take ' clothing," answered
Mrs. Jones. "The children look rather
shabby, lately, seems to me. I don't
know whether Mrs. Powers tins gumption
enough to make over things as Mrs. Peters
used-to; but !f ws give tbe clothes an'

"I guess I'll do the same," said the doc

some of their clothes, but they're almost
as good as new. i ney u uo tor tne uunis-

"Mebbe Mrs. Powers won't thank us tor

Thome. "I don't believe I would."
"She ought to be thankful for what
she can gut," said Mrs. Deaoon Jones, se
verely. "Ministers' wives mustn't be too
The minister of Stony Creek hsd been
considering the advisability of making a
change at the end of the pastoral year.
The tact was, bis congregation was, col
lectively, a stingy one. It Included men
who could well afford to pay liberally to
ward a psstor's support, but they had
formed the habit of contributing to the
salary In a niggardly fashion, and the re
sult wss that the minister's family really
suffered for the necessities of life, at times,
while be wee expected to consider every
thing that was given in the light of an
(special favor, and be thankful that he
got as much as he did. It did not seem
to occur to them that he earned more
than he received. They had been brought
up to think of religion as being "free." It
was only by the exercise of the most rigid
economy that both ends could be made to
meet, at the minister's house. It wss very
discouraging to him; but he was earnest
In his work, and willing to make saorl-

flees for the possible good that might
grow out of his ministry among the Stony
Creek people. Ills wife often got out of
patience wtlh him for not resenting the
treatment he received at the hands of the
church, and being one of the outhpoken
kind, she said exactly What she thought,
and said It very fo.clbly, sometimes.
"They ought to be told the plain truth
about their meanness," she declared. "If
I preached to them, I'd say something that
would set them to thinking, even It It did
make them mad. You work hard for the
salary they're supposed to pay you, end It
ought to be paid In rash. The Idea of
paying a good share of it In stuff that we
don't need or want, just because they can't
get rid of It for money I It's a shame,
and they ought to be told that we con
sider it so. I'd set my foot down, if I
could have my way about It, and tell them
that I wouldn't have another donation, if
they proposed It. We aren't objects of
charity, If they do think we are. Preach
them a sermon, John, from the text that
the laborer Is worthy of his hire, and
make It good and strong. They'd resent
It, of course, but what if that dldT They
need to have the truth fired at them like
hot shot, onco In a while."
"We'll wait and see how this donation
party turns out," said the minister. "If it
Isn't more of a success than the one last
spring, we'll get out of Stony Creek when
my year la up."
"It's settled, then," said the minister's
wife, with a laugh. "I might just as well
begin packing up, first as last."
The evening of the donation party came.
Mrs. Deacon Jones was the first arrival.
She brought a big bundle of old garments.
"You'll find It real easy to make 'em
over," she said. "They'll do your family
just as well as new ones."
Presently Mrs. Dr. Wade appeared upon
the scene. She also brought a good-elsed
bundle of miscellaneous clothing.
"Some of the things are almost as good
aa new," she said. "They won't need mak
ing over, I guess. It they should. It won't
be much work to fix them."
Before long It seemed ss If all the old
clothes of the neighborhood were being un
loaded on the minister's family. There
were garments of all sorts, and slses, and
colors, and some for every member ot it.
Mrs. Powers found It hard work to keep
Mrs. Powers found It hard work
to keep from expressing her in

called to dresses that would likely be
a "good fit" for her, and Jackets ten year

upon at great length, and only needed "the
least bit of change to be right in style."

were only too glad to get rid of. But, for
her husband's sake, she held her peace.
"I think we ought to move to the city
and open a second-hand clothing etore,"
she said, as they looked over the miscel
laneous collection, after their visitors were
gone. "We've certainly got stock enough
to keep us In trade for a year, at least.
The ida of giving us to understand that
their cast-off things are good enough for
us! I consider it a downright imposition.
Hulf the stuff they brought is utterly use
less unless one cared to wont It up Into a
rag carpet. I wonder what they'd say if I
were to announce that I was going to make
a carpet out of It T They'd say I was
'shlf'le8S,' and wasteful, for one thing,
after having sung the praises cf their gifts
in the way most of them did."
The minister set to work next day on hln
sermon tor Thenkeglvlng. "I've chosen a
rather peculiar text," he said. "1 don't
know what I shall be able to make out of
it. It's this: 'And I say unto you, even
Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed
like one of these.' Of course, the central
Idea is to be that beautiful character is
preferable to a king's garments. I think
I'll be able to make my sermon fit It."
An Idea that seemed akin to an inspira
tion flushed across Mrs. Powers' brain, but
she said nothing to her husband about It.
At Intervals, however, all that day and
the next she had queer little laughing
spells which he could not account for.
When he asked what pleased her, she sim
ply said, "Wait and see."
Thanksgiving day come, and the church
at Stony Creek was filled with worshippers.
The minister arrived promptly, but his
family had not put In an appearance when
services began. The opening hymn was
sung and the usual prayer offered, and still
they had not arrived. Then the second
hymn followed and the congregation set
tled itself to listen to the sermon, and the
minister's pew was still empty.
"You will find my text In the sixth chap,
ter of Matthew, twenty-ninth verse," he
began. "It reeds as follows: 'And yet I
say unto you, that even Solomon in all his
glory was not arrayed like one of these.' "
The familiar words rolled out sonorously
above the heads of the Intent congregation
Just aa the church door was heard to open.
Nearly everyone turned to see who was
coming (the usual reception accorded late
arrivals), and such a sight as met their
eyes! Mrs. Powers was marching d gnl
fledly up the aisle, followed by her four
children. She had on a dress thst was In
stantly recognised by nine-tenths of the
congregation si an old one of Mrs. Deacon
Jones', a hat that Mrs. Tibbets had worn
fur at least two years, snd a Jacket that
was so familiar that "Mrs. Doctor Wade"
seemed written all over it. And the chil
dren were spectacles fit to provoke the
laughter of the gods, arrayed as they were
in garments that represented half the fam
ilies of the congregation. Borne were too
small, and some too large. No two of them
harmonised In style or color. The general
effect was highly drama Uo as tbe words of
the minis tar's teat still rang La Us ears ot
those who looked on the procession mak
ing its way up the alsl3. The young people
tittered audibly. Some of their elders In
dulged In broad grins, and some chuckled,
but moet of those whose generosity had
made the grotesque display possible, looked
wrathfully indignant. Eyes would wander
to the pew where the minister's family sat.
In spite of all efforts to keep them on the
minister, and certainly the spectacle that
its occupants presented was enough to dis
tract the attention of all save the most
serlous-mlnded, from his Bermon. It was
with great difficulty that the minister con
trolled his risibilities, he confessed to his
wife after they got home. "I don't believe
I could have gone on with my sermon If
It hadn't been written out," he said. "The
sight was enough to upset a much solemner
man than I am. if you could only know
how you looked, my dear!"
"I did know," she replied. "We looked
at ourselves in the glass, before starting,
and I didn't got over laughing at what we
saw there until I had got to the church
door. I wanted tham to see what guys they
had mude of us. The idea came to me
when you told me what your text was to
be. I know they'll never forgive me, but
I can't help that. It was a sermon they
needed. My! but didn't Mrs. Deacon Jones,
and Mrs. Doctor Wade, and some of the
others represented In our wardrobe, look
daggers at me, after church? I don't think
one of them spoke to me, but Mrs. Thorns
whispered that she gloried In my spunk,
and said it served them Just right. Maybe
it wasn't Just the proper thing to do, but
I after all, why wasn't It? They gave us the
clothes to wear, and we wore them, and
what reason had they to be angry with us
for that, I'd like to know?"
It has been many years since the Rever
end Mr. Powers and his family left the
Stony Creek field, but the recollection of
his last Thanksgiving day sermon and the
way In which its text was Illustrated Is
still vivid In the memory of the neighbor
hood. Since then the rag-bag has not been
robbed for the benefit of the minister's
UNCLE SAM A WATER THIEF
Hay Channel Forces Canadian Craft
to Pass Through American
There is a water boundary question
which Is likely sr n to become a subject
of negotiation ana settlement between the
United States snd Canada. This matter
I relates to the status of Canadian craft In
the Hay channel of the Straits of Ste.
The natural channel was in the St.
Mary'a river, which formed the boundary
between the United States and Canada, and
In which the craft of the two countries had
equal rights. The American government
has deepened the Hay channel to the south
of Sugar Island and wholly within United
States territory. The result has been that
the water of the St. Mary's river has beu
so lowered that the navigation has te be

This Is an open channel and would ordi

boundary channel did.
At the time of the northwest rebellion
the American government refused to per
mit Canadian troops to be transported
through the American Soo canal, and,
therefore, the government of Canada was
compelled to spend $3,000,000 In duplicating
the canal on the Canadian side. Now, how
ever, the diversion of the water to the Hay
channel has placed Canada In practically
the same position as regards having to pass
through American territory, as this coun
try occupied before Its canal was con
structed. The feeling In official circles here
Is that the United States cannot take the
water w'thut giving commerce the privil
ege of following It with the same rights It
had before. Washington Is likely to be ap
proached by the Canadian authorities for
this purpose. Chicago Chronicle.

LAZIEST OF ALL BIRDS
Cowblrd Builds No Nest, Rears Ko
YonnaT and Forages in
The cowblrd was born so tired that if he
could compel any other bird to gather his
food for him he would do so, but he can
not, so he scratches about all day among
the herds of cattle and sheep and goes to
roost at night in great bands of hundreds or
his relatives, always selecting a bushy tree,
such aa a cypres, for a night's perch. All
up and down the Mississippi river valley Is
the common summer home of this bird, for
only in the depth of winter do they retreat
to the warmer mesas of Mexico, whither
most of the other birds have preceded them.
In the spring following such a winter they
are the first to return, filling all the new
year air with their chatter and lining the
You must not think that tbe glossy black
and brown birds so plentiful around South
ern California barnyards during the winter
months are cowbirds, for they are not.
They are called "grackles," and seem to be
more like crows than blackbirds. You can
find their nests, big bulky affairs, In the
orange and cypress trees of almost sny of
your ranch homes. There are many, many
members to the blackbird family, the
sweet voiced meadow larka and the gor
geous golden orioles, ss well as the mors
sober colored blackbirds and grackles, and
of all these but one forcee the hatching of
her eggs snd the feeding of her young onto
another bird mother.
In England, the cuckoo has this same
habit, but the Amrrlesn cuckoo builds her
nest and sits on her eggs as nicely as any
roliln or dove could do. Sometimes our
roadrunner so far forgets herself as to lay
her eggs In the nest of a quail or a meadow I
lark, but not often, but when she does the j
bird upon whom Mrs. Roadrunner tries to '
Impose generally breaks the strange egg or 1
else goes awsy and leaves the nest alone. I

a feast, to which sometimes the roadrunner
comes herself, for she Is very fond of eggs
as long as they are not her own.
But the cowblrd never makes any such
poor Job as that. She always selects the
nest of some smaller bird In regions where
warblers are plentiful the home of one of
these little singers Is almost frequently
chosen and there, ss many eggs as she
thinks the owner of the nest will submit
to are laid. Sometimes the warbler goes
right on Incubating the Intruder, but now
and then the two old birds get together
and dump the egg out on the ground.
Nests have been found In which the warb
lers put a mud floor over the first nest
and built another one on top of it, leaving
their .own eggs to spoil because they knew
no other way to rid themselves of the cow
blrd. If the cowblrd comes back by the
repaired nest she will put another egg In
It, and generally this egg . Is hatched and
raised by the foster pair on whom It has
It requires about ten or eleven days for
the young cowblrd to break the shell, while
most other birds of Its size are two or three
days longer, and thus he has a good start
on the other nestlings In point of growth.
When hatched the cowblrd Is larger than
the sparrow or the warbler, and conse
quently gradually crowds them into the
background, taking all the food that should
b.long to them. As they grow weaker from
this, he grows stronger, and It Is not long
until he tfps them out of the nest and Is
sole master of the two old birds, who work
ceaselessly to satisfy his swful appetite. In
a very few days he gets too large for the
little nest and goes out Into the branches,
where the old birds still continue to feed
him In a way they never do their own
young after they have left the nest. In
Mexico and South America there Is a cow
blrd that sometlmee builds a nest of her
own and sits upon snd hatches her own
eggs, but no such thing ever happens among
the black hobos of the oriole family found
further north. j
How many eggs a cowblrd lays no one
knows, but ss many as seven have been
found In one nest of the oven bird, a kind
of thrush fojnd In the eastern states. Usu
ally, however, only one egg Is laid In each
nest, especially If the birds to whom the
nest belongs are small and the nest too
little In comfort. The parent cowblrd
never disturbs the eggs of any of the birds
In whose nests she leaves her own, know
ing full well that If she did so the nest
builder would In all probability desert her
home or throw the strange fgg out. Often
times more than one cowblrd lays In the
same nest, and as no two eggs of these
Mrds sre ever exactly alike In color, you
tnsy be sure that no cowblrd knows her
own egg half a minute after she has laid
It. Los Angeles Times.
