ing over this melancholy fact.
" Tain't right." he grumbled to his
gentle wife, who sat knitting beside
him. " 'Tain't right to have families

his good wife, "but you hadn't oughtei

doctrine, though it could not quite
■top the deacon's grumbling.
Miss Kborfa Phipps was quite equal
to the task of taking cace.of the old
people. A strong woman helped het
in the kitchen, and there were neigh
bors near by who were ready to do
extra work. Job. the good middle
aged -man who had taken care of the
horses for many a year, was no mean
hand at household as well as stable
service, and at this special Thanks
giving season Hiss Rhoda kept them
all busy until the pantries were piled
thick, with dainties. Mrs. Phippt
thought that there was too much food

It was not the family of son John.
urely it was Thomas and his min-
: ;r brother, with several members of
their families, and Mrs. Phipps fair-
ly cried with joy as she saw them.
'There is another load just behind
us," they shouted, as they drew up be-
fore the door.
"Another load!" There were half
. dozen loads before the final toll was
taken, and when two strong, big

Such a Thanksgiving! Every sin-
gle one of the Phipps children and
trandchildren was there! The good
deacon's voice trembled with Joy as
he ked the blessing, and poured out
his thanks before God.

The Way They Stand:
Deacon Phipps Was Restlessly Peer
ing Up the Road.
"We never in the world can eat them
up before they spoil! As near as 1
can make out, there are only aboul
ten coming, anyway."
But Miss Rhoda said she "would
risk It," and laughed her mother bacS
to her post beside the fire.
By ten o'clock Thanksgiving morn
ing the whole farmhouse was ii
speckless order. Aunt Jud'y and Unclt j cantlv,. and then
Ben had promised to come early, and
so had son John and his family. Dea
con Phipps was restlessly peering ui
the road, long before the proper time
and Mrs. Phipps was almost as impa
lit at as he.
Presently over the brow of the hill
a little, but In the face of the loud
merriment which greeted this perfect-
ly true reminder, his few rather growl-
ing remarks could not be heard.
"You know there really isn't much
danger from automobiles nowadays,
father," proceeded Thomas Phipps
diplomatically. "The chauffeurs are
better taught than they used to be,
the machines can be stopped more
easily—oh, in every way they are Im-
"Improved!" shouted the deacon, un-
able to restrain himself longer. "You
can't pick up a paper without readin'
about some shockin' accident through
carelessly driven automobiles. Im-
proved! They can't be improved.
They are Inventions of the evil one
himself. You can't tell me! T read
"Wait a minute, father!" laughed
Thomas, amid the eager looks of all
the others, who were evidently full of
suppressed excitement. "We—well—
we—we feel as though we all wanted
to see more of you and mother than
we have seen lately, but we don't feel
safe to have you traveling around on
the cars any more, and your horses
can't take you as far as most of us
live, so we have clubbed together and
have bought you the strongest and
handsomest limousine car that we
could End. We have put a sum at In-
