"I have Boino rights of memory In thin kingdom, Which now to claim my vantage doth Invite me." Our Cousin Horace will come for us to-morrow—perhaps good fortune will bring him to-night. To be sure the late storm—very apt to come just before Thanksgiving—has carried away the little bridge across the river, but that sitnpl}' means a still longer ride over the sparkling snow, made gay by the bright moon, the'keen, frosty air, the merry sleiglibells— six miles lengthened to eight by the kindness of the Storm King. How glad we are over the verythought of being on hand the night before to witness the plucking of the chickens—the fat four-pounders for boiling and stewing and the poor little unfortunates of the late summer hatching, which, like the "four-and- twenty blackbirds," are doomed to a pie, to fold their poor little wings at rest under a puff-paste blanket. Cannibals that we are, this thought is something more than restful to oni; childish fancy. We dodge.for a sly peep into the "buttery," where rows of shelves are laden with the product of many hours' preparation and labor. We taste beforehand, in imagination, the golden custards, the rosy jellies, the numberless kinds of pie. We sniff the odor of Thanksgiving cake redolent with spices and flavors innumerable—oh, delicious! A IJiiy for All. While Christmas and New Years are largely observed in the United States they do not compare in that respect to Thanksgiving day. The former, the anniversary of the birth of Jesus Christ, has its enemies as a National holiday. A recent writer claimed that it should be abolished because not quite one-third of the total population of the United States believe in the divinity of Christ. New Years day, being of Roman origin, necessarily has only a small portion of observers among the total population. Thanksgiving day is distinctively American. Though established with the consent of 4 those who are devoted to the new testament, it is by no means a day particularly set apart for Christians. It is a day on which all can join in giving thanks for the blessings of Uod for the previous year. Hevolvlug Vie\v of If everything niuvtrs in s circle in the progress of the world it is not compatible with our present environment to make one hundred pies at a time, ten loaves of cake, or load the table with such an abundance of riches, En| joyment rests upon memory for those who have lived it, upon description for those who have not. As a dissolving view it fades gently from sight. What is this fair picture slowly rising- to view? The incxiem Thanksgiving.

There is a new element to scare the women in country houses half out of their wits that is yet hi its infancy, but endowed with the strength of a young giant as for as terrifying qualities are concerned. ' Tin's new burglar is in the form of a woman tramp. A mouth spent on a farm on the main road between two thriving towns, yet distant enough from habitations to make it quite Isolated, has revealed the fact that, though men of the genii* tramp are annoying and bothersome, women of the samo ilk are ten times more so. To begin with, being women, no farm hand or any man about the place cares to deal with them in the summary manner to which the male species is accustomed. Knowing this, these tattered vagrants in female form intrude even into the very living rooms and whlno and beg until they are given something or when abused will rum abusive and If sterieal, a combination that frightens even strong men, says the Philadelphia Times. Every visit from one of these gentle wanderers means so much less property, as they steal everything they can lay their hands on. No nap in a bamniocjc or a morning stroll can be taken without beiiKr disturbed by one or more of the homeless viragoes, who are lost to sense of shame or decency. Sometimes an all unhappy little mortal that calls the tramp mother is taken along on these summer wanderings. They fare better than men, for scarcely any one is hard-hearted to refuse a woman a night's shelter itt some out-house; therefore they generally sleep under cover. On being que* tioned as to why they have taken to the road, they tell a tale of the difficulty <->f obtaining work in the large city they have just left, and the hope of employment in the one- toward which they are journeying. If, however, work is offered them, they either rind some excuse for not accepting, or stay one night and c-.uup before dayligiit with edibles enough to last several days, and any other niflt-s they can conveniently esrry. Notwithstanding that they lest to nearly every sense that adorns womanhood, they still retain a genuine feminine character that proves the only stronghold of the wires and danjrhters of the fanners whose victims they are. This one reserve measure of protection is in their fear of cows and dogs, A mildK v «*i. gentle Alderney will keep out a rrio of these harpies while a man with a club would be of no avail.
