A TRIM and dainty naaid was she, ,

Around her slender vrajst vri tied
An apron white m nn',
nE WATcnr.D rkx took tm oraa sooi
For in the ninny kitchen wide
Of a farmhouse far away
She cooked the turkey to a turn
Upon Thanksgiving day.
HE watched her from the open door, '
And all hit manly courage fled
Before her roguish eye.
He lay awake the bVelong night
Until the east was gray
And memorized a flowery speech
To her Think giving day.

a "lovlns and old frle&d" aad dated at
"Plymouth, tola 11th of November,
1021." Tula "lovlnc aad oM friend"
Is supposed to hava bea a certain
George Morton, who had married a
sister of Governor Bradford and who
came over to Plymouth la July, 1023.
The letter la algned E. W.. and these

Vlr-!ow Of the 102 emlcrants who
lauded on the lltb (old style) of De
cuuilwr. 1020, on the bleak coast of
Cape Cod, almost one-half had died
aud nearly all of the remainder bnd
suffered seriously from destitution and
the rigors of the winter, for which they
were III prepared. The reward, how
ever, of the Industry of the few who
were not disabled was ao abundant as
to cull forth the thankfulness of this
very religious colasay. The letter al
luded to says: "You shall understand
that In this llttlo time that a few of
us have been here we have built seven
dwelling houses and four for the use
of the plantation and have made prep
aration for seven others. We net the
last spring some twenty acre of bar
ley and peas, and, according to the
manner of the Indians, we manured
our ground with berrlneB, or, rather,
shads, which we have In great abun
dance and take with great ease at our
doors. Our com did prove well, and,
God be praUed, we bad a good Increase

Wti tomethmf like the way it ran.
But now hit tongue was tied,
And though the sought to lead him on
With lks and laughter gay,
The sweet coquetts, he only sighed
On that Thanktgjving day.
OUT, lo, when from the oven' depths
' The .rooting bird the drew
And dished k in i paper
Upon a platter blue.
The bashful lover seized her hand
And dared at last to say,
"Oh, will you cook my turkey, dear,
On next Thanksgiving day ''
Minna Irving in Leslie's Weekly.
A little jerk,
A little dirk,
HI lie diaxter.
Let ua civ thanks 1
What I
You haven't trot
Anything to be thankful for,
Tou have cot
Tou can't be thankful tor?
Oh, tmj.
That's no way
To feel about a good thlngl
Brace up and bring
yourself to the front.
Don't crowl and grunt
And do the sorry Btunt.
Pull out of the ruck
If you're down on your luck
And reach for the skies that are blue.
Get out of the shade
Your troubles have made.
By heck. It Is up to you! .
We know this Is & vale of tears,
Chuckful of woe and sorrow,
And turkey that we eat today
Is not so cood tomorrow.
We know that labor Is a cross,
Out still we have to bear It.
We know that fortune breaks sometimes,
And we cannot repair It.
But, lay.
Occasionally cood things come our way.
Don't theyT Sum they do.
And bully ones tco.
Bo let us crowl and swear and kick
On every day save one.
On that one let us pause and thank
The Lord for what he's done
The way we thought he ought to do
To square himself with me and you.
We can stand for one Thanksgiving day,
Can't wet Hy cum,
it everything Is on the bum
We must be to blame soinel

given to him again this year.
Had Johnston not broken his leg
In the game with Nebraska last
year he would have undoubtedly
been given n place on the All

to one of the halfback positions.
All season he has shone brilliant
ly. Ilu Is one of the best dodgers
that ever appeared on the west

not as spectacular as bis team
mate, McGovcrn, is every bit as
valuable. Both boys arc work

will graduate next year. Al
though his leg was broken in the
game with Nebraska last season,
the plucky halfback refused to
remain In bed. Ills physician
permitted him to sit in a rolling
chair for a few days, but John
ston had football on Uie brain,
and the Gophers' games with
Chicago and Wisconsin were at
hand. He demanded that the
doctors nllow him to see the two
games. Ills request was granted.
During the game with Chicago
Johustou was being rolled up
and down the side line In a
wheeled chair. Bo excited did
he Ixvome at times that lie could
hardly keep his broken leg at reat.

If your bowels did not move for a week
or ten days you would be down sick. It'e
he same result, differing only in degree,
when your bowels do not move regularly
at least once every day. You become con
stipated, your blood gets bad, and you feel
Sick all over. To avoid such serious con
ditions take Smith's Pineapple and Butter
nut Pills. They will drive bowel poison
out of your system and establish regularity.
These little pills are purely vegetable awd
