The speaker Avas Private Ned Farswell, of a volunteer cavalry regiment, the time was late autumn, 18G3, and the scene a road crossing in North Carolina, where Ned, whose regiment was on a long scouting expediiion, had been posted an hour before by the sergeant of the picket-guard. The skies were in keeping with late November, but no more sombre than the expression of Ned's face; even the horse which Ned bestrode bad a mournful attitude, and the stubble of the fields, liRe the few leaves which still clung to the trees of the oak barren,gave a dismal monotony to the landscape about him. The only visible indication of neighboring humanity was a small, unpainted house two or three hundred yards away,—just far enough to be uninteresting, and, as Ned grimly informed himself, just near enough to suit the purpose of any bushwhacker who might like to secure a trooper's horse and accoutrements by the easy method of shooting the rider. Well," Ned resumed, after looking out each of the roads a few times, "it's fully dinner-time, judging by my feelings, so I may as well fall to. First course, hard tack; second course, more of the same; third, ditto, with hard tack for dessert. If I don't cut one of the courses, I'll have to have small supper, for there's only nine crackers in a day's ration, and I had three for breakfast. I wouldn't feel so bad about it if the confounded things were fre.*h, but the commissary managed to strike some mouldy ftock—and for this day of all days—confound it! Likely enough there's a box of good things from home waiting for me in camp, a hundred miles away; of course they'll all spoil before we get hack to them. Ah, well-soldier's luck." .. and drevliput a government biscuit-jBpit ol' the mdch-abused "hard-tark,"—winch was the army substitute for fresh bread. It was delicately fit eked with green, but Ned did not seem" to approve of this variation from the b<>dy-ct>lor of the food, for his face expressed disgust as he looked at the biscuit and snifft-d at it before he fixed his teeth in it. Meanwhile he kept a sharp eye on the house; should he see a sudden puff of white smoke, at that distance, he could save himself by quickly "ducking." While he was working his way slowly through the first half of the biscuit, he saw the door of the house open. Instantly his hand dropped to his carbine, but relaxed its hold as he saw an old-fashioned sun-bonnet, protrude,to be slowly followed by the form that wore it. "Going to blow the dinner-horn, I suppose," muttered Ned. "I wonder what they're going to have? Even if it's only fried onions, I wish the wind would blow through the kitchen and bring a whiff of it out here, to take the taste of mould out of this cracker." But the woman blew no horn; she stood motionless, apparently staring at Ned. "Seems to be impressed; perhaps distance lends enchantment to the view. Hope she isn't thinking of inviting herself to take Thanksgiving dinner with me. By Jove! perhaps she is, for here she comes." The woman walked, apparently with a hesitating step, down a road which was dimly outlined against the dead grass; when she was within a few paces of the fence she stopped and seemed undecided. Ned raised his hat and shouted: "Good morning, madam, and a happy Thanksgiving day to you." She came down to the fence, leaned upon it, and said : "What was that you said?" "I wished you a happy Thanksgiving day. I can't say that I'm having one, but I don't begrudge it to any one else." "Is this Thanksgiving day? I didn't know it. I haven't seen no papers for a long time, and we don't have church often now." "Why, yes; this is Thanksgiving day; at least it is among us Yankees, and— The woman started, and said: "I didn't know you were a Yankee. I thought maybe you was one of— "You needn't be frightened, ma'am," said Ned, quickly. "We're, not here to harm women, least of all on Thanksgiving day." The woman gave him the long stare peculiar to country people when they meet strangers; Ned returned the look with becoming modesty, and saw a face neither pretty nor ugly—a plain, honest-looking countrywoman, in a faded and shapeless calico dress. The woman finally broke the silence by saying:. "'Pears to me I've heard that you Northern folks make a good deal of Thanksgiving day." "Indeed we do!" Ned replied. "I wish I could see the inside of our dining-room at home about now. There's father and mother, and grandfather, and all the young ones around the table, and two big roast turkeys just aching to be carved,and potatoes, and onions, and celery, and cranberry sauce, and cider, and three kinds of pie wailing on a side table, with nuts and apples and orangen. And like as not grand-dad is standing up. at this very minute, thanking the Lord for all the mercies of the year, and asking Him to be particularly merciful to all the hnngry and needy to-day, and—" v: i Ned was a good soldier, bat he was scarcely beyond boyhood, so between the sentiment of the day and the sense of the remoteness of the home festivities, he found a'cbople of unsoldierly tears streaking his face. He quickly turned his head away, and the woman said4: "That must be real nice. MW!ell, I ain't got enough family to make much fyss for —just the children and Me.

"No bigger than this," said Ned, witbr a smile, as he extracted another biscuit* from his haversack and held it up to view "I can't say there's any fancy cooking; about it, but it's food, and that's all a sok dier can expect. The woman looked curiously at the bis-, cuit; Ned rode up to the fence and handed it to her, saj-ing: "Won't you take one, just as a curiosity? Be careful when you bite iuto it, for men have broken their teeth on such things It isn't bad though, when it's fresh, as it was when I started." The woman looked the biscuit over, again stared long at Ned, and finally turned toward the house, saying: "Well, good-bye. I hope you'll get back safe to your folks. I wish all the fighting was over." "So say we all of us," Ned responded.' Then he continued, as the woman returned to the house: "I ought to have given her another. Like enough, with no man in the house, she has a hard time to get those children enough to eat. The one I did give her, though,takes another course out of my dinner. Guess I'll save the other cracker for an hour or two, so I .won't be ravenous at supper-time." Again at her doorstep, the woman stopped and looked in Ned's direction so long that the young man said to himself : "If I hadn't been unshaved for a week, and if I weren't spattered from head to foot with mud, I'd have to think that woman had taken a notion to me. She isn't that kind, though." Further interest in the subject was prevented by the woman going into the house. Ned had still the greater part of four hours to wait before the relief guard should come, so he went back to his thoughts of home. Then he hummed a tune or two, and went through all the other time-killing devices that were pos-- Bible to a lone man on horseback. He tried to guess the time by mentally measuring the altitude of the lightest spot of the western sky; he compared the rail fence with others he had seen in the Sont.h ; he endeavored to determine the species of some trees far to his right; and he might have gone through much more vacaut-mindedness had he not been startled by footsteps in the direction of the house. Turniug his horse quickly, he saw a little boy and girl, each carrying a plate, and standing near the fence. Their faces were blank, except for an expression of awe, but they held up the plates and succeeded in saying in unison : "Mother wishes you a pleasant Thanks-givlng." "Gracious!" exclaimed Ned. One: plate contained a fried chicken,still steaming, two baked sweet potatoes,and a large hoe-cake; on the other were peanuts and some frosted persimmons. The young man assumed the purpose for which the viands were sent and acted accordingly, talking as he ate, until he and the children became as familiar as old friends. Then he searched his pockets for something to give the children, but he could find nothing more appropriate than his knife ami-pocket- mirror, both of which he promptly sacrificed. || * * * * * * The fortunes of war afterward brou succeed him home he captured a charming you woman whom he had long admired, prospered in business, too, so when married, he started with his wife fc long wedding journey in the South. course he revisited the scene of his own' service—his bride insisted upon it. One day, while the two were driving together, the young woman said : "Ned, dear, tell me truly: did you never fall in love with any of the Southern women?" "N—110," was the reply, "not exactly. But there was one woman—" "I want to see her!" "Nonsense, my dear; she must be almost old enough to be your mother." Then Ned told the story of his Thanksgiving dinner of several years before,after which the young woman exclaimed: "Now I want more than ever to see her." "My dear," said Ned, "by a striking coincidence I'm taking you right to her house, and"—for the familiar cross-roads were reached—"here it is. Eh? what's this? Oh, too bad! the same old story, all through the South—notice of sale on foreclosure of mortgage." "It sha'n't be!" exclaimed the bride. "That woman? O Ned, is it too late? When is it to be?" "Very soon," the husband replied, after stopping his carriage beside the tree on which the notice was tacked. "Some little matter of a hundred or two dollars, I'll warrant." "Ned!" said the bride, in a choking voice and with her eyes full of tears, "let's stop our wedding-trip. It will cost more than that. I insist upon it." "But, my dear—" "Give me my way, you promised it before we were married. Give me all the money you have, except enough to take us home. Give it to me this minute!" "My dear," said Ned, taking a wad of greenbacks from the inner pocket of his vest, "I never before knew how handsome you were." Ned had but little trouble in reintroducing himself at the house and in becoming acquainted with the woman's husband. Meanwhile the bride insisted on hearing the story from the woman herself. When it ended she exclaimed : "How could you bring yourself to do it, when he was one of the enemy ?" "Well," said the woman, awkwardly fingering her apron, "I don't know. He was away from home; he felt bad, I could see it in his face, and 1 couldn't help thinking about it. I suppose it was woman's way." "So is this," said the bride, thrusting the money into the wo00®0'8 hand. "Save your home; if this isn't enotfgh my husband shall send you the rest." The recipient was long in comprehending what had happened ,but finally a smile came into her tired, patient face, and she drawled softly: "Thanksgiving day has—" Then she broke down, and she and the bride "had it out" again ip "woman's way ' CHRIST BEFORE PILATE.

Pilate finding no fault in Him (xviii, 3S) desired to release Him, but they insisted upon the release of Barabbas, a robber and i murderer. How like those who now prefer the devil, a murderer from the beginning, to Jesus, the Prince of Life. 2. "And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns and put it on His head, and they put on Him a purple robe." 1 3. "And said, Hail, king of the Jewsl and they smote Him with their hands." 4. "Pilate therefore went forth again and saith unto them, Behold, I bring Him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in Hhn." 7 His second testimony to the innocence of Jesus (see his third in verse 6). Compare the testimonies to His innocence and holiness given by Judas, Pilate's wife, the thief on the cross and the Roman centurion (Math, xxvii, 4, 19; Luke xxiii, 41, 47). He was indeed a lamb without blefn- ,18h and without spot; holy, harmless, un- .defiled and separate from sinners (I Pet. i, |l9; Heb. vii, 26). ; 5. "Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man." Concerning the first king over Israel we that when Samuel saw Saul the unto him, "Behold the man" Saul, however, was a great 3m of whom it is written in vi, 12, 13, "Behold the man whose ame is the Branch. * * * He shall mild the temple of the Lord, and He shall >ear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon lis throne." The Jews recognized Him I lot as He stood before them with scourged lack, and thorn crowned head, and blood tained face; but they shall see Him again o their great sorrow (Zech. xii, 10). 6. "When the chief priests therefore and ifficers saw Him, they cried out, saying, rucify Him, crucify Him." 7. "The Jews answered Him, We have a iw, and by our law He ought to die, be-ause He made Himself the Son of God." Their accusations were that He said God as His Father, making Himself equal ith God, and that He, being a man, made [imself God (chapter v, 18; x, 83). His orks had clearly proved that He was bat He Baid He was, for who but God mid cleanse the leper, open the eyes of je born blind and. raise the dead.

It starts the torpid liver into healthful action, purifies and enriches the blood, cleanses, repairs, and strengthens the system, and restores health and vigor. As an appetizing, restorative tonic, it sets at work all the processes of digestion and nutrition, and builds up flesh and strength. It's the only Blood and Liver Remedy that's guaranteed, in every case, to benefit or cure. If it doesn't do all that's claimed for it, the money is promptly refunded. But it keeps its promises — that's the reason it can be sold in this way. "Discovery" strengthens Weak Lungs, and cures Spitting of Blood, Shortness of Breath, Bronchitis, Severe Coughs, and kindred affections.

The Good Things FOR AT THE Old South Store.' . to say, and when to be silent. If we fare true believers Christ is in us, why then should we not know just when to speak and when to be silent. 10. "Then saith Pilate unto Him, Speak-est Thou not unto me? Knowest Thou ;not that I have power to crucify Thee, and have power to release Thee?" So it seemed to Pilate, but he like other rulers of whom we read in Scripture knew not that "The Most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever He will, and setteth up over it the basest of men" (Dan. iv, 17). 11. "Jesus answered, Thou couldst have no power at all against Me, except it were given thee from above; therefore he that delivered Me unto thee hath the greater sin." Even the devil could not lay a finger on Job, the servant of God, without God's permission (Job i, 12; ii, 6). How much less could Pilate touch the Son of God without permission from God. But permission from God does not lessen the guilt of the sinner. 12. "And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release Him; but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man 'go thou art not Caesar's friend; whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Casar." Pilate knew Him to be innocent and had three times testified to that fact; he had just acknowledged to Jesus that he had power to release Him; he knew that that was the right thing to do, and yet be hesitates to do it. We cannot say a good word in favor of his fear to do right. 13. "When Pilate therefore heard that saying he brought Jesus forth and sat down in the judgment seat, in a place that is called the Pavement, but, in the Hebrew, Gabbatha." Pilate decides to continue Ciesar's friend at all costs, however much he would like to be a friend of Jesus, and he sits on the judgment seat as Csesar's representative. We are now to see and hear the world's decision in reference to the Christ of God. 14. "And it was the preparation of the passover and about the sixth hour, and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your king!" In verse 5 it was "Behold the manl" Son of Man, Son of God, King of the Jews, it is all true. It shall be seen now ere long, and the passover shall have its complete fulfillment in the kingdom of God (Luke xxii, 15,16) when He shall come, no longer in humiliation riding upon an ass' colt (John xii, 14,15), but upon the white horae of power and victory, accompanied by all the armies of heaven (Rev. xix, 11-16). 15. "But they cried out, Away with Him I Away with Himl Crucify Him! Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your king? The chief priest answered, We have no king but CtBsar." Contrast Ps. lxxxix, 18, "The Lord is our defense, and the Holy One of Israel is our King." But, as it was in Samuel's days, when they rejected God as their king (I Sam. viii, 7), so now they rejected God manifest in ;the flesh, the Son of David, Son of Abraham, Son of Man, Son of God, and they have been reaping the fruits of their choice from that day to this. May our hearts truly say as we by faith look upon Jesus, "My King and My God," and let us add, "Thy servants are ready to do whatsoever my Lord the King shall appoint" (II Sam. xv, 15). • 18. "Then delivered he Him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus and led Him away." The voices of the chief priests prevailed, a robber and murderer was set free and the Jewa chose Caesar instead of God. Pilate alao ' decided against1 Jesus in favor of Cesar. Add to this day our Lord is still rejected and by the world disowned; by the many* still'neglected and by the few enthroned. He ever before as for reception or rejection, and many times a day we must decide for Him or against Him. Let us always say "We have no king but Jesus* - W o u l d n o t s o m e p e o p l e h a v e a " g r e a t footing lo the world" if the size of their footgear deteflpnWed their, rank and success in life? . ^ p&pta who boaatoTt^^Mli 8&ndifag of thefr ancestry are aa careful Suown Always anxious to supply our trade with the best things that the market will affaUtt, to adorn t he table on this^.the glander, we are now prepared to furnish the housewife all she can desire to make the modern Buttery and Table seem just as it did years ago.

Established in 1824 by Samuel Bowles. Published DAILY, SUNDAY and WEEKLY. The Springfield Republican is emphatically a news* paper for the people. It publishes all the news that is news in the broadest and highest sense, unaffected by partisan[or personal prejudice. It is enterprising, alert and intelligent in the performance of its duties to the public It has its own decided opinions on public questions, and these opinions are expressed with vigor and ability, but they are not allowed to color its news columns. The Republican is a thoroughly fair journal. Members of all parties who desire to keep informed of the important political events and discussions of the presidential campaign of 1892, should subscribe for The Republican. THE DAIfcY REPUBLICAN was started in 1844, *'incI i-s ihe oldest daily paper in the state outside of Boston. It has always kept abreast of the times, and has been quick to avail itself of the best modern appliances for the enlargement and improvement of its news service. It is now regularly an eight-page sheet with seven wide columns to the page, and supplemental pages are frequently added as the demands ol news or advertising require. It covers the news of the world with discriminating care and thoroughness. New England happenings and interests receive special attention and liberal space, anda large force of special reporters and correspondents are constantly employed in gathering the local news of Western Massachusetts and the neighboring counties of Connecticut, Vermont and New Hampshire for its readers. Its editorial page is broad in range, independent, elevating and interesting itt quality. Its literary department is oi" a remarkably high order. Its political correspondence is furnished by independent, well-informed and capable writers. It publishes, moreoverj a great variety of interesting and valuable general correspondence and selections. THE SUNDAY REPUBLICAN was first published in 1878 in response to a real public demand in Western .Massachusetts for a first-class, high-toned Sunday newspaper Since that time it has been constantly improved and it has been twice enlarged Kully four-fifths of its 56 columns of space is devoted to reading matter of a high order, embracing news, special correspondence, a full page of editorial matter, a department of books, authors and art, a first-rate weekly story and a weekly sermon, sporting and theatrical news and notes, special articles, original and selected poetry, etc. The Sunday Republican is a thoroughly wholesome excellent and interesting journal, well adapted to the tastes and wants of the intelligent New England public. THE WEEKLY REPUBLICAN is now more than 67 years old, but age only improves its quality. It continues to be what it has long been, a remarkably faithful and comprehensive record of American life Its weekly review of the news is very carefully compiled, and its twelve broad pages contain in addition to the news, a wonderfully rich collection of valuable and entertaining reading matter. All the best features of The Daily :yid Sunday Republican are reproduced in The Weekly in full or but slightly abridged, and arranged with admirable skill and intelligence for the convenience and pleasure of the reader. The result is a weekly news and family journal which far exceeds in interest and worth any similar publication in the United States. It is a paper that New Englanders at home and abroad will find of special value, and which Americans everywhere can appreciate and enjoy. SUBSCRIPTION RATES.
