Caesar Alexander Shakewell, a color
ed citizen of Bridgeville, owned uo tur
keys. and his richer white neighbors
had put theirs in special security as
Thanksgiving Day drew near. Mrs.
Shakewell kept nagging Caesar about a
turkey until he determined to have one
before another sun set, at any cost.
He sat down before the fire in the twi
light to study out some plan of action
on the important question.
It came to him quite readily, it ap
pears , for all at oute he found himself
carrying it out. He had noticed a
loose board on Col. Fairgrove's back
fence the day before. The Fairgroves
were easy-goiug people, not much giv
e n to hammer and nails, and they
would be sure to have a turkey iu a
coop in the backyard getting ready for
the annual feast.
Sure enough, the board fell off at the
bidding of his brawny arm, and there
in a pen in the corner was the bird of
his hopes. The slats of his coop drop
ped before the same potent force, as
though they had been mere ravelings.
It was no trouble at all to tie his legs,
cover his body with an old bag and slip
quietly away with him. Once at home
Caesar Alexander put him in a barrel
and laid heavy sticks of wood on the
Then he called to his wife to come
and see him and to quitt 4 j irrin' ' him
about their Thanksgiving dinner.
She appeared, looked at the bird with
eyes like saucers, and then grew very
4 Wbar did ye git him ?' she asksd,
with something like awe in her voice.
'Worked for 'im, o' course,' raid her
gentle spouse, with a sneer. 'Knowed
al the time dat I was to git 'im ; but
you had to hev yer fill o' jorrin' and
complainin' at me for a wuthless nig
ger. Kuowed it was no use to tell ye.
Ye wouldn't b'lieve me till he come."
Mrs. Shakewell looked at her hus
band,a fresh well of admiration spring
ing up iu her heart. He was a super
ior creature, to be sure ; she would
neyer doubt it again.
Before going to bed Caeser Alexan
der went into his small yard, lifted a
stick or two of wood from the turkey's
barrel and took a long and fond look at
his prize. Suddenly a hand was laid
on his shoulder, and be turned with
quaking knees, expecting to face the
village constable ; but dark as it was
he could see that the hand belonged to
a gentleman of his own color, though
one ; with whom he was entiiely unac
quainted—'a kind of old fashioned
lookiu' nigger,' he said when telling
the story afterward. Iteassuied to find
that it wasn't the law he had to con
front, he put considerable bravado in
to his voice as he said :
'Who are ye, anyhow ; and what
(Dye want in a geuiraan's yard at
night ? It's forenenst the law to creep
aroun' honest folks' houses on the s'y
'Caesar ! Caesar !' said the other,
without appearing in the least iutimi
dated ; 4 I am one of yer aincestors
from 'way back, and I can't come to
yer in daytime because I've been dead
a long time.'
Here Caesar's teeth chattered aud
his legs gave way under him.
'Brace up 1' said the ancestor, slap
ping him on the shoulder. 'Brace up '
I'm here for yer good,not for yer haim.
I want ye to kerry that turkey back.
Ye've done some thing to disgrace the
name of Shake well, and I won't stand
it. The constable will be down onto
ye to-morrow mornin' 'fore 'J o'clock if
ye don't, an' there'll be a neighborhood
scandal about this bird that'll make the
whole rare o' Shakewells shake in their
graves. Caesar 1 for the sake of your
proud and honorable aincestors take
that bird back, and to morrow take yer
gun and go to the woods and git one o'
the turkeys uv yer fathers—an' it's a
bird that no nigger ought to turn up
his nose at, either.'
Here the 'amcestor' sniffed delight
edly at something invisible, something
in his memory aparently, and then
went on :
'lt's a bird dat no man owns ; it's
de true Vahginiah turkey. 'Tisu't a
feathered bird ; 'tisn't a fowl at all.
It wears fur and has hfty teeth, a brist
ly tongue, a long prehensible tail—you

ter an intelligible word.
The 'aincestor' continued : 'lts feet

and long shai p claws on every toe ex
cept its inside one. It uses dat as a
thumb. It is a marsupial turkey, Cae
sar.' Here the ancestor smiled at the
towering proportions of his own learn
ing, but presently talked on.
'Alive it has an odor ye can't mis

git de 'possum, de 'riginal turkey ob

Perspiring at every pore Caesar Al
exander shouldered the turkey and
started toward Col. Fairgroye's. Just
as he was about to euter the yard,
through the break in the fence pre
viously made by himself, he felt anoth
er hand laid on his shoulder with con
siderable emphasis. Fearing that an
other and still more terrible ancestor
was about to have speech with him, he
sank to the earth, without daring to
look around. Then the hand grabbed
him more tirmly and gave him a vigor
ous shake. He looked up. appealingly
and confronted the c instable. With a
groan he fainted dead away.
'What ye groanin'and carrying on

thing he heard. The question was

never was so happy in his life. Col.
Fairgroye's turkey was safe where it

he hadn't met any dead and gone an

and grace, and Mr. Shakewell's stand

fragrant thanksgiving board he had
more than usual ciuse for gratitude.

sometimes tells of the encounter with
his ancestor, he never tells of the cause

BLACK CHEWING GUM. Lately
there has crept into the Detroit mark
et a substance known as "black chew
ing gum,'* made out of tar, which is
said by medical men to be extremely
harmful and pernicious. It is becom
ing a great favorite with local gum
chewers, but physiciaus assert its use
is productive of sore mouths and in
numerable throat diseases. Put up
in fancy 'paper, sold at a penny a
block, flavored with some unknown
ingredient, and christened with a
sweetly-sounding name, as "luti-tuti,"
for instance, the black chewing gum is
forcing its entrance into all grades of
Detroit society, and driving its rivals
to the wall. But it is nothing but

gelatine and flavored with—heaven

A SHOWMAN CAUGHT.—A show
man was making a great fuss at the
front of his exhibition of the wonders
he had inside. A man standing in
the crowd, with a little boy beside
him, cried out: 'l'll bet you a dollar
you cannot let me see a lion.* 'Done,'
said the showman, eagerly; 'put down
your money.' The man placed a dol
lar in the hand of a bystander, and
the showman did the same. 'Now
walk this way,' said the showman,
'and I'll soon convince you. There
you are,' said he, triumphantly; 'look
in the corner at that beautiful Numi
dian lion.' 'I don't see any,' respond
ed the other. 'What's the matter
with you ?' asked the showman. 'l'm
blind,' was the grinning reply, and in
a few minutes the blind man pocketed
the two dollars and went away.

An Early Blizzard.
HEAVY SNOW FROM DAKOTA TO LAKE
CHICAGO, NOV. 17.—N0 such storm
as that of to-day has been known
throughout the Northwest so early in
the season for many years. In this
city a steady rain has been falling
since 7 o'clock last night and prevails
generally between here and the Mis
sissippi river, west of which there is a
heavy sncw and howling blizzard,
seriously delaying telegraphic com
munication in all directions. At St.
Paul the snow was continuous yester
day, growing heavier after midnight,
aud this morning the people found the
streets so badly blockaded that travel
was next to impossible. The blizzard
began in Dakota and swept east and
south through Minnesota, Wisconsin,
lowa,Northern Illinois and Michigan.
At Sioux Falls, Dakota,the snow con
tinued for eighteen hours and the
temperature fell to zero. On the Illi
nois Central Railroad, between Fort
Dodge and Sioux City, the cuts are
filled with snow and snow plows have
been sent out to clear- the tracks.
Trains are impeded cn many roads
and the blizzard is moving eastward,
bringing the snow and falling ther
mometer with it.
At St. Paul at 9 o'clock" to-night
the storm had raged forty-eight hours
and showed no signs of abatement.
Street cars have not been runrii ug in
either St. Paul or Minneapolis to-day
and trains on all railroads are from
three to six hours late. While the
storm seems to be general throughout
the Northwest it is most violent in
Southern Dakota. A Sioux Ftdls
special says that more snow has al
ready fallen than during the entire
season last winter. The wind is blow -
ing a heavy gale from the north and
the snow is drifting very badly.
Trains on nearly all the roads are a
bandoned. TLe temperature is at ze
ro and falling. There is also strong
electrical disturbance. Other points
state that the storm is no less seyere.
A train with one hundred passeng
ers on board is snowed in eleven
miles west of Canton, Dak. The
passengers are being fed from a small
station near by. The Milwaukee

FOR WHAT SHALL WE BE

'For what shall we be thankful ?'
say the poor. 'The earth overllows

Cold and hunger is our portion, and
want is our companion all the days of
'For what shall wo be thankful V'
say the hopeless. 'The days go on,but
they bring us no joy. The sun and

'For what shall we be thankful ?'
say the disappointed. 'Wherever we
turn, there, waiting to dishearten us,
lurks disappointment. When we rise
he it is that causes us agaiu to fall.'
'For what shall we be thankful ?'
say the tempted, the mistaken, the
fallen. 'Our temptations have over
come us ; our mistakes have destroyed
us ; our sins have crushed us. For us
there is nothing left but wretchedness.'
'For what shall we be thankful ?'
say the bailled. 'When we strive we
fail ; when we pray no answer comes ;
when we hope our hopes are never re
alized ; when we love our loves are lost

say the bereaved. 'Death has robbed
us and left us moaning. Our sore
hearts cannot take up the cry of rejoic

'For what shall we be thankful V
say the sick. 'We suffer and know no
ease. We are full of anguish night aud
'For what shall we be thankful ?'
say the persecuted. 'Our enemies out

than we can bear.'
♦For what shall we be thankful ?'
say the weaiy, the wounded, the forsa

is no rest, no happineos, no help.
Weariness is our portion and burdeus
our inheritance. We have no cause
for rejoicing from the beginning of the
year to the end.'
For these, for all these, it is written:
'Rest in the Lord. Oh, rest in the
Lord. Wait patiently for Ilim and He
shall give thee thy heart's desire.'
To these, to all these, the promise
has been given. To these, the words
from a plain old sermon come with
power to heal : 'There is heaven to be
thankful for. Whatever sorrows be
reave us here, whatever fatal mis
takes darken our lives, whatever irre
deemable losses befall us, we may yet
rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for
him in the little life that remaius ; for
beyond this world's gain or loss, high
in the serene air of beaveu, when ex
istence ceases to be a lesson and be
comes vivid life, there and only there
shall He give us onr heart's desire in
its immortal fullness. Here knowl
edge is defiled, love is imperfect, purity
the result of fiery trial, wealth rusted
into covetousness ; but in beaveu is
the very native country of pure knowl
edge, perfect love, utter siulessness,and
riches that neither mot nor rust cor

There was nothing|new in the plot of
the desperate villains who sought to ex
tort money from Mr. Ross by stealing
his son Charley. The kidnapping of
children for the sake of gain or revenge
has been practiced for hundreds of
yeais. There are doubtless to-day in
this country a score or more of Charley
Ross cases, but as the parents are not
rich and prominent, and the search not
aided by legislative action and the unit
ed press,they are seldom heard of by the
The case of Willie Albright, an Eng
lish lad,was full of strange tdventures.
He lived at Sheffield with his parents
until five years of age. His father was
employed in a great factory there and
his mother was a dressmaker for the
neighborhood. They lived in a cottage
in the suburbs of the town, and at the
age of lour the boy was permitted to
run about the neighborhood a good
deal. At five, when he was kidnapped,
he was sent to the stores to make pur
chases, and knew all the streets clear
to the factory in which his father work
ed. One dry in 1861, about 2 o'clock in
the afternoon, be was sent to a stoie
three blocks away after some buttons.
Before lie reached it a strange man ac
costed bun and asked his name. He
then gave Willie some sweetmeats and
asked him to go and look at a Bunch
and Judy show iu the town, promising
to return with him in a half hour. The
boy eagerly set off with him, and was
taken to the railroad depot and placed
on a train iu charge of a middle-aged
woman,who gave him some more sweet
meats and was yery kindly spoken. She
said the show had moved away and
they were going after It, and the novel
ty of the child's position prevented him
feeling any anxiety. When the detec
tives came to take the case up, as they
did two days after the boy disappeared,
they got no clue whatever. Although
he had walked a mile or two hand in
hand with the abductor along crowded
streets, nooody remembered seeing the
pair. They bad gone openly to the
railroad station, but no one there bad
noticed them. The guard on the train
dimly remembered a woman ana a child
in a compartment, but could give no
discription. As the Albrights were
poor and no great stir was creat
ed, aud no great effort was made by the
detectives to restore the boy to liis par
The boy was taken from Sheffield to
Liverpool, being so well treated on the
way that he had no thought of his
home. At Liverpool he was told that
his name was John Man ton, and that
the woman was his motlier. When lie
disputed the point he was soundly
whipped. His hair were cut close, his
dress entirely changed, aud a liquid
was rubbed on his skin which turned it
dark- Except when he asked to go
home, or denied that his name was
Jonn Manton, he was kindly treated,
and alter lie had been beaten seyeu or
eight times he accepted the new name,
and ceased to refer to his parents.
Young as he was this was a stroke of
policy on his part. He realized that he
had been stolen from home.and he kept
repeating to himself that his true name
was Willie Albiight, and that he lived
Alter a couple weeks lessons in
tumbling and tight-rope walking were
given to the boy. lie was never per
mitted to go out alone or to converse
with strangers, and it soon came natu
ral lor him to call the woman mother.
In the course of a couple of months the
past seemed a dream to him, and he
would have forgotten .ill about it had
he not kept repeating to himself : "1
am not Johnny Manton, but AV illie Al
bright, and they stole me away from
Sheffield." He was in Liverpool six
weeks before he knew the name of the
city. When he had been taught how
to dance, sing, tumble, and walk a
tight rope—a matter of three months'
lime—lie was taken around the country
with a small show, which the woman
owned in part. The novelty of travel
was so agreeable that he almost lorgot
his situation, and was for two or three
years quite coutent. There was no one
to teach him how to read or write, but
he was quick-witted, and could reason
beyond his years. He had hopes that
the show would some day reach Shef
field, and he would slip out and run
home,but the people of course carefully
avoided the place. Ouce, when they
were showing at Doncaster,a few miles
away, Willie observed a man whose
face had a familiar look, gazing at him
in an honest manner, and presently
heard him say to a friend :
"The laddie keeps me thinking of the
child who was stolen away from neigh
bor Albiight; tut of course it can't be
The boy was about to call out that
his name was Willie Albright, when
the woman, who always kept an eagle
eye on him, came closer, and intimidat
ed him. The show then hurridly pack
ed up and left the place. The boy now
realized more fully than ever that his
right name was Albright, and that he
had been stolen from home, but he also
realized his hopelessness. He had been
told that if he eyer tried to runaway,

therefore humbly obeyed all orders, and
made no move to run away. lie was
about eight years old when he changed
masters, being sold for a good round
price to a man who called himself Prof.
Williams. This man was a ventrilo

performances for a year or so. They
then returned, and made the tour of
Scotland and Ireland, and sailed for
America. Albright was about eleven
years old when he landed in New York.
The Professor then took the name of

man in look or speech, and trayeled for
a year. One day as they were Ailing a

was sent to the postoflice with letters,

The Limited Express Struck By
PITTSBURG, NOV. 18.— The heavy
rains of last night caused a most dis
astrous landslide from Mt. Washing
ton, on the south side of the Monouga
hela river, the sides of which are al
most perpendicular, and along the base
of which the Pan-Handle Railroad is
constructed. The Limited Express on
the Pan-Handle Road, due in the city
at 9.40, had reached a place just beyond
the Point Bridge, one mile from Union
Station, when a mass of rock came
crashing down the hillside. The train
consisted of three Pullman cars, in ad
dition to several mail cars. The first
sleeper was the Cincinnati,and the sec
ond and third from Indianapolis. The
first mass struck the Cincinnati sleep
er, crashing through the roof near the
centre. This car had very few passen
gers in, and nearly all of them were un
and in the lavatories. D. Arubeim, of
this city, was standing in the isle and
was crushed beneath a huge rock. Mr.
A. S. Bennet, of N<sw York, was still
in his berth and a mass crushed
through the upper berth, carried it
down upon him, and pinned him be
neath it. The second car was struck
in tne centre, one huge rock going
