Thirty Thousand Dry Goods Stores.
-In the United States there are about
thirty thousand shops that sell dry
goods. Twelve thousand of these may

Ave thousand arc establshments of a
size which makes them Important fac

life of their communities. The own
ers of almost all of these shops, tho
largest as well as tho smallest, began
obscurely. The majority of the most
prosperous have attained their present
success and magnitude during recent
years, in which unsuccessful mer

that the competition has been ruinous.

It was 'down In "Ol Virginny" one
November morning that Toby Strange of
the genus "hobo" crawled out from the
burrow he had made for himself In a
straw stack and looked around him. The
sun was riding high in a blue haze, and
the chill air made poor Toby shiver.
"A cud of hot coffee would do me
good," he muttered, as ho glanced dubi
ously at a large log house plainly dis
cernible through the bare branches of
some fruit trees in the distance.
He moved forward awkwardly on the
toes of one worn shoe and the heel of
the other, endeavoring to keep his feet
from coutact with the hoar frost which
had stiffened every weed and blade of
grass In the field.
At the rear gate he paused as if awe
struck by the sights and sounds that
greeted him. In the adjoining barn lot
was a great cackle among the hens,
which was almost drowned by the shrill
noise of a dozen guinea fowls ranged on
the rail fence. The turkey gobblers strut
ted defiantly past the proud peacocks.
but their challenges were drowned In
tho general clatter. The noisy scene told
Its own story of comfortable farm life
to the lonely wayfarer, and he .sighed
deeply as he shuffled Into the yard and
drew towards him a tall, blooming chry
santhemum, and breathed its unguent
"Oh, tinders end," he exclaimed under
his breath. "Another five minutes con
templation of such a home-like scone
would spoil my appetite," and the soft
ened expression of his face was replaced
bi a look-of harsh Indifference. "Pshawl
he continued as he hobbled to the back
door, "I'm too old and tough for any
sentimental vagaries," and he tapped on
It was opened Instantly by a very neat,
pretty girl of nineteen or twenty. As
she held the door ajar, there ponred out
pleasant steam, which bore on Us
breath a delicious odor of sausage, hot
biscuit and strong coffee.
"Lady, I'm very hungry. Will you
please give me something to oat?"
"Come In," 'she said kindly, "and eat
Giving him a seat near the stove, she
brought from the corner cupboard a dish
of fragrant sausage In brown gravy, bis
cuits, and a cup of rich, creamy coffee,
and arranged all on the kitchoa table.
As Toby ate, he looked and really was
for tho time at peace with himself and
all the world. He tried in a dreamy,
half conscious way to analyze a delight
ful odor which seemed familiar, but it
eluded him till the young lady, opening
the stove, took therefrom a tempting cre
ation In brown and gold.
"Pumpkin pies," he breathed.' "I knew
that odor belonged to the old days,"' but
the regretful pang he felt was very much
softened by the substantial pleasure of
MeauUme the young lady, with an air
triumph, bore the pies Into the next
"See, papal" Toby heard her exclaim,
my three years at school did not cost
my special talent." -
"So I see," replied her father. "But
why pumpkin pies, my dear?"
"Why, papa, don't you know next
Thursday Is Thanksgiving day?"
"Yes, Amy. But I have been thinking
that in short, that we might dispense
with the dinner this year. While you
were away at school your mother and I
economised at Thanksgiving, and thereby
saved several pounds of sugar and flour,
besides clearing a dollar on the turkey.
I see no sense in giving dinners and re
joicing when wo have nothing to be
I "Oh, papa," Amy exclaimed In horri-
fled tones, "nothing to be thankful for.
How can you say so when we have 110
much more than wo deserve?"
"Yes, Amy, In a general way that Is
true. But you can't understand tho hard
work and close management I'm bound to
nractlce to make ends meet. This year
, has been a hard one altogether. One of
my beat horses died (est spring. The
frost killed the fruit crop. The pesky
dogs killed several sheep; and between
the drought and the Insects my corn and
Dotato crops are cut off at least half.
And now, to p the cMmax tiftt eaWle
man offers me about half as mnon lor
tho calves as I had counted on getting.
No, I'm not feeling particularly thank
ful." "Not hars a Thanksgiving dinner,
John, now Amy is at homo and our only
boy is coming, tool" exclalmod Mrs.
Caldwell, coming Into tho room as her
husband concludod his remarks.
"Not thankful," exclaimed Ainy, a sob
In her voice, "whon wo have good health,
a home and plenty In storehouse and
barn," and Amy passed hastily through
tho kltchon and out of sight In tho yard.
Toby, Just taking the last choice bin
of Ids breakfast, cast a furtive glnnco at
the girl and noted the trembllug Hps
and tearful eyes.
"Now, John," said Mrs. Caldwell In a
pleading tone, "you havo hurt the dear
child. And sho has been so happy these
weeks past planning for tho dlnucr and
tho guests. And besides colobratlng
Tom's return, It would be a most appro
priate way for Amy to rcnow old friend
ships, for after an absenco of threo
years the poor child Is almost a strauger
In the neighborhood."
"I'm sorry to disappoint you and
Amy," returned tho husband. "But I
cannot afford to ontortain tho public this
year. If you and Amy are so awfully
thankful, you can havo a small family
dinner; one of tho little turkeys, and none
but homo folks present."
"Tho Idea of scrimping and pinching on
a Thanksgiving dlnnorr' retorted Mrs.
Caldwell, now evincing unmistaknblo
signs of anger; and loavlng the room, sho
slammed the door after her.
With a sigh of mingled contentment
and regret Toby slowly roso and pre
pared to leave the snug room which
seemed a paradise to him. As he passed
the dairy he saw Amy, with a Jar of
cream In her hand, and thanked her for
his repast. Then, with a forlorn homo
sickness that wouldn't bo shook off, ho
aimlessly climbed the long, rod hill, and
presently finding hlmsolf In a sunny, sncl
terod spot, he threw himself on tho dry
leaves for, what he seldom Indulged in, a
little sober reflection.:
"If I wore In that farmer's place,"
ho soliloquized, "I honestly believe I
could be as thankful as ho ought to be.
I wish I could help that kind-hearted
girl, but what can a poor tramp do?"
He was thinking of pursuing his Jour
ney when voices reached bis ear, and
looking up he said, sotto voce, "John
Caldwell, as sure as I'm what I never
meant to be. Who would have thought
of seeing him after all these years? Well.
It's likely he wouldn't know mo If he
should see me, but I'll not give him the
chance." And Toby crouched low In tho
fence corner, while the farmer and cattle
trader haggled about the bunch of plump
calves In the pasture field beforo them.
At last the bargain being concluded,
the trader paid the farmer fifty dollars
and departed, while Mr. Caldwell entered
tho woods at Toby's back. Toby's eyes
followed him thoughtfully.
"If I had that fifty dollars," said
Toby, I'd be more than thankful. And
yet that ungrateful reprobate Is too meau
to let his daughter have a Thanksgiving
dinner. I wish It was my business to
kick him Into a better way of thinking."
Toby, In his half recumbent posturo on
the leaves, felt loth to leavo a retreat
bo restful until his breakfast was di
gested; but ere the farmer had quite dis
appeared from sight, Toby suddenly
reaching a decision, arose and stealthily
Mr. Caldwell's gloomy meditations took
a sudden turn, as Toby from behind a
tree sprang upon him, and beforo the
farmer could think of resistance or de
fense, he Iny prone on his back with a
hundred and eighty pounds of tramp
seated on his stomach.
"Take it easy, man," said Toby. "You
needn't cut up rough, it'll do no good. I
mean to hold you quiet while we havo a
little talk. I think I can convince you
that you havo several things to be thank
ful for. Ob, you needn't wiggle. I heard
