"Can't a j person be thankful in any other way than to pile up wonderful dishes until the very tables groan, auntie? It just looks to me like aa offering to appetite." "Childi" exclaimed Mrs. Marcia Steven? son, pausing with one floury hand half way in the currant bag, "who could have a Thankagiving without a fine dinner?

The wind howled and shrieked, and drifting snow clung in crusts on the windows. But the fire burned furious? ly in John Olmstead's library, where he sat in a comfortable arm-chair, hia slippered feet on the fender, supposed to be listening while his nephew, Rob? ert Stanton, read aloud to him. The old man was called "crusty" at large, and crusty he surely waa. He stood well up among thc wealthiest men in Brooklyn, and, having been a widower almost all his life, he had become so thoroughly accustomed to hia own way that he hnd outlived even the passing suggestion that there could by any possibility be any other way. He was supposed to be listening. His eyes were fixed in a fierce, determined stare upon the glowing coals. His fore bead was furrowed.
