Thanksgiving Day In the Ilea&t.
Alice Tracy was a bright pretty girl of
. thengi she often
attracted the attention, of strangers, roam no
favorite among " her companions ; they
never wanted her to join their plays or
walks. Alice often felt angry ut this ne
glect, for she did not see clearly, why she
was treated so.
Oue day at recess, while a group of the
girls were in the entry talking about
Thanksgiving; altoo went to wash her slate
ut a little shelf behind the school-room
"We always have such good" times at
grandpa's," said one of her cousins ; "or
we should have," Auid another cousin, "if
it were not for Alice Tracy ; she is such a
little fitebratkod, she spoils all our fun."
-"Yes, that she is !" cried all the other
girls, joining in.
It is said, listeners never hear any good
of themselves, but Alice could not help
hearing, and what she heard was anything
but gas] of herself.
"A firebrand, am I?" thought Alice,
her little person swelling with auger and
_mortification ; "I'll never speak to those
girls again ;" and she went. back to her
seat in a very unfit state to finish hersutns.
"A firebrand I" she kept saving to her
self, "a firebrand I I wish I could born
them all up !" and with such wicked
thoughts the little girl spent the remain
der of the afternoon.
When school was done, she ran home
with; ut looking or speaking to any item—.
Nobody seemed to be at home ; she rang
-ed the rooms, hoping to find somebody,
and vet,hoping not to : what if her own
brothers and sisters thought her a fire
brand too ? At last she saw her mother
looking over the round yellow pumpkins
in the wood-house chamber.
"Alice, is that you ?" said her mother.
Her mother's friendly tone sounded very
sweetly Co the child's camas with a burst
ing heart she flung herself on the rude
bench by her mother's side, end hid her
face in her hip. "What is the matter ?"
asked Mrs. Tracy ; "you have been run
ning ; how very hot your heed is." "I
Elm a firebrand," cried Alice ; "the girls
say I am." "How is that ?" asked her
mother, and presently Alice related what
had happened : "Yes,. mother, they have
treated tae like one for a great while, and
I will never play with them again."
"Do not make any rash promises," said
Mrs. Tracy, "lug us first see if there is
any just ground for what they say. I
suppose every little girl has a reputation
aiming her companions, and that repute
thin is pretty much what she is ; is it not
se ?"
"IVhat is reputation,. mother ?" asked
Alice. ,
A good or a bad name." answered her
mother ; "that is, if a child has a goad
or a bad name at achool 6 she generally
deFerving of it? think a while."
Alice thought "The girls think Fanny
Blake is a good sehhlar, And she is; .and
they thick Emily Cowden is - mean,
she to; and they think"—Aiice was going
on with her estimate . of character when
her mother asked-- ' ' '
"And what do tboy think of ,Alice
The 'ohild . blushed. Her mother waited
se`ribiory Un in ansWer.
"They thiak," at last Alice said, "she
is it 'firebrand I" -
4 , That is," added )her bother, "they
think she hems quick, fiery temper, which
blOws up on) the smallest occasions, and
spoils everything pleasant. And is not
this my little daughter's besetting sin ?
Has it uot often grieved her mother, kin

how she felt it, and she suddenly saw heir

had been it little pains to restrain or sub.

and her mother improved the opportunity

Baer littie.Alice Was in earned as We
' shall see. Itt a few weeks Thanksgiving.
day came, thaigreat family holiday when
a score of cuestas and ;',their mothers and
fathers and uncles atUI itunts met at grand
father's, not only to eat' (urkey and mince
pie'and crack nutir, hullo recount the
goodness of God, and thank him for the
mercies which crown'the' year. I cannot
tell you nbout the plentiful Thanksgiving= ' ,
dinner at grandfather Tracy's; or 'hoW ma
ny turkeys he sent around to the poor for
their Thanktgiiing, or bow many pies 1
his wife baked to go with them,. or all the
pleasant words that *ere spoken. But in
the afternoon it was the fashion for the
grandehildron to recite Utile poems, and
this year Alice was old enough to say one,
and she had spent much time to commit
to memory one which her mother had se
! !clued for liar. Four or five of the coo
sins had said theirs, when Alice's turn,
came, She was abashed, but began well,l
and finished the first verse, when she bleudered sod stammered : some of her con-;
sins langlied and tittered, which confused 0
her more and more. Mk was unkind and
vexing, but Alice kept her temper ; she
turned to grandfather, who was master of
ceremonies, and said,—
"Please, sir, excuse me ; the others can
do a great deal better than I, grandpa;"
and she stepped humbly aside and bid
herself in grandfather's arms, which were
stretched out to receive. her. Au'd he
was content to have .the speaking go en
without her. After it was over, Ned ask
ed her to excuse his laughing, for it was
very rude.
"Yes, indeed," she answered sweetly;
"I nun sure you did not mean to trouble
"0, mother," she whispered, after they
got home that evening, "I have had a real
Thanksgiving-day in my heart."
"I suppoto grandmother's pies tasted
better than over," said her father smiling.
"Not that, not that," cried Alice ; awl

'"I find the marks of my shortest steps
beside those dory beloved mother. which
were measured by my, own," says Alexan
der Dumas, and so conjures up one of the
sweetest images in the siorld. He was re
visiting the home orbit infancy; he was
retracing the little paths "around it in
which he had once walked; and strange
dowers could not efface,, an I rank grass

other side, that it is no weeder she so often
lats go her clasp upon the little fingers she
is holding, and gees over to the neighbors,
and the children follow like lambs to the
fold, for we think hi - ought' somewhere to
be written, "Where the mother. is there
the children will be also."
But it was not of the mother we began
to think. but of the desi old-fashioned
grandmother, whose thread of love, spun
"by band" on life% little wheel, was longer
and stronger than they make it now, was
woued alend and .about the children she

Blued be the children who have an
old-fashioned grandmother. As titer hope
for length of dais let them live and honor
her, her we can tell them they will never
find another.
There ise large old kitchen somewhere
in the past, end an old-fashioned fire-place
therein, with its smooth old jambs of stone,
smooth with many knives that had been
sharpened there, smooth with many little
fingers that had clung there. There are
andirons. too ; the old andimps, with
rings on the top. wherein many' temples
of flame have been lbuilded. with spires
and turrets of crimson_ There ha a broad
worn hearth bmad enough for three gen cluster on ; worn by feet that
have been torn and bleeding by the way,
or made '"heautiful." and walked upot:
floors of tessellated gold. There are tongs
iu the canter wherewith we gra sped a coal ,
and "blowing for a little life. lighted our
first candle ; there is a shovel, wherewith
were drawn forth the glairieg embers.
in which we saw our first fancies and
dreamed our first dreams : the shovel. with
which we stirred the 'sleepy logs, till the
sparks rushed up the chimney as if the
forge were in blast below, and wiftbed we
had so many lambs, or no many marbler,
or so maany somethings that we coveted ;
and wit was we wished Our first wishes.
There is a chair—a low rash-bottomed
chair; there is a little wheel in the corner,
a big wheel in the garret, a loom in the
chamber. There are chests full of linen
and parr, and quilts of rare pattern, and
"samplers!' in frames.
And everywhere and always the dear
old wrinkled face of her whose firm, elastic
step *inks the feeble Igllliver of her chil
dren's chit& co—the old-fashioned grand
mother ,of twenty years ago. Slie, the
very Providence of the old hnnieAtead ; she.
