"It's too ImiiI lh.it they do not colWt the ;uitor'a aalary," remarked Mr. Hun ter at th I-adlri' Aid meeting. Who she meant by "they" wa not entirely clear, Inaamueh aa ah waa one of the officer. "If no one elan will do anthing, wa muat," rejoined Mr. Allen j the various memliers rnxklrd approval. It wai xoon planned. The pailor had received J.'l.To; they would pay hlia f:W.25 fiiaka It even llflO and have enough left la the trraiury for Incidental matter. On ThutKday evening of next week, which was Thanksgiving, they woulil Invite themielve to the parsonage and have a good time while making the paitor happy. It would lie easy to pre- I par something fxtra while gettlnc ready lor inanxxginng. n wai io i a grann secret; uot a soul but members of the society should know a word ot It. At tha close of tha builncu roe-Ming ot tha Young People' League, the presi dent made a clo scrutiny to auure him self that all present were members; he then proioed that, aa "they would not do anything," the Ieague take up tha matter. "I undrtaml that we have nearly altty dollars In tha treasury; wa could pay the paator flS-W) bring tha salary up to $100 and have enough left to pay all bill and begin tha new year out ot debt. If we do this I auggest that we observe the utmost aecrccy and make It a complete urprlae." All readily agreed to the ilu and pledged tha proper reti cence In tha matter. Four of the moat faithful met after prayer meeting to discuss the situation, and decided that they muat at once col lect MS.2A, the balance ueccuary to pay the atx month' salary due. This they proceeded to do ao quietly that no one aunnlseil a general canvas waa being mad, llefore Sunday the entire amount was secured. Krlday, after school, tho Junior Leag uers met and decided that Inaamueh aa tho Kfiwn-Ui folks would not help In the matter, they would do what they could; ao they voted to pay over every hit there va In the treasury. Upon counting ?:i.2.1 was found to. bo the correct amount. "Oh, girls 1" cried little Newman, as he mada aoms figures In the treasurer's book, "It will make Juat even $7.1 anil I hopo we can get enough to make It a hun dred." After the choir had run over the Bun day hymns, someone proposed that they pay the proceeds ot the last concert on the salary. The sum ot (.10.2.1 ; after re ferring to the margin of hla anthem book, the choriater reported that It would make (82 all told. On Thanksgiving morning they would call at the parsonage and sur prise tha pastor with a check, tor this amount, rerliap It wonld omwht atone for the- sin of whlaprlng daring th rmnn. Thanksgiving day waa a trying time for the Norwood. 'Hi rty was skk tha night before and kept them awake; and when lhiy did get to real, they overalnpt. What with rushing lo get breakfast orer and make reidy for the service at church, prayer were xhorleni-d and th chapter ornltted altogether. "Oh, Wesley, I nrn o Mredl Every thing haa gone wrong to-day," said Mrs. Norwood that afternoon. "The children niver were ao naughty before.

"Nerer mind, dear; th Iord will pro vide;" then he slowly addnl, ss If In sn afterthought, "vrme way." A few mlnule later Pastor Norwood waa bowing lo th organist, who allpiJ a check In hla hand and said properly, "With the compliment of the choir."

Kach party looked stiffly askance at the others, wondering by what trick ery their secret had become known. After an hour of discourse and son;, the treasurer arose ami said : "A few days since our paator had re ceived but a mere pittance for many months ot faithful labor. While be had wrought earnestly for the church and Its societies, so thst, for the first time In ears, all were In a prosperous condition, lie unaelflshly forgot hla own needs. No, no I Ilrother Norwood, you must permit me to finish. Then one sodetr and an other, by some strange coincidence, con celved the thought of giving the pastor a pleasant Thanksgiving surprise. It Is needless to say that we have surprised each other qulto as well. Hut best ot all, I find that In tha few days ot unconscious co-operation, we have increased the amount paid on salary to Juit fire hun dred dollars. This shows what we can do It we all work together, I more you as a congregation, that we Increase our pas tor's aalsry from six hundred to eight hundred dollars a year." It was carried with a rush, even Broth er Cook assenting. Pastor Norwood arose, and with tears of Joy trlckliug down his cheeks, thanked them simply. Sorn said they sang the doiology as never before; at leaat there were two voices that rang out with a new Inspiration ot faith. When they were once more at home, and the children In bed, Wesley Norwood again took hla wife In Ida arma and open ing hla llltile at a place much marked and worn, they read together with the guile less faith of children, "And It shall come to pas that before they call, I will an swer ; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear."

HOW TO CARVE A TtmJOEY. Sharp Knlfo ot f.rtmtrat Imporlanea In Cnlllnar Up I'nnl. Home are Imrn enrvera, some after pain ful effort achieve carving and some un fortunate few have carving thrust upon them. In order to become skillful la the art It Is of lb first Importance to bare a aharp knife. I)anle Webster, so th story goes, one) undertook to carve ths tnrkey at an old fashioned dinner. The knlf wai dull aa th traditional hoe and th bird proved refractory, giving the great man mora trouble than on of hla celebrated cam paign speeches. Finally, after an espe cially desperate effort to cut throngb tba hide of ths troublesome fowl, the knlf slipped and the bird turned a coropleta somersault and landed In tbe lap ot a lady who sat next to tbe famous man. Hut even afrer this effort Mr. Webster nerer turned a hair. "Madam, I'll trouble you for that tur key," said he, snd went at ths struggle aim In with might snd main. Hut we are not all born with the aplomb ot th great orator, so It Is as well to take the precaution to have tbe knife aharp. Th turkey should always be served on BEFORE A FALL. a platter largt enough to hold tbe differ ent Joints ss they sre carved. It should be placrd on the table with the breast to the left of the carver, who commence-, operations by first getting a firm grip on tbe fowl by sticking the carving fork dec down through the upper part ot the breast bone. Now, holding tbe fork securely la the left hand, take tbe knife In tbe right and remove the legs and th second Joint together by pasa.ng tbe knife around tba Joint next the body. Then take off tbo wings In the same manner and disjoint llefore carving more from the turkey It Is well to separate the leg and cut It into two pieces. After this the breast ot the turkey can be carved In thin, delicate slices -villi the knife held flat against tha I breast bone and faced away from the i carver. Then the point of the knife can ' b Inserted under the wishbone and It can ur ,iiirj, prTBM-u iwrawsm ami rcmoveu. Good carvers now turn th turkey slightly and without removing ths carving fork cut the shoulder blade from tba un der side of ths carcass. Each "helping should contain a piece ot both white and dark meat and a generous spoonful ot dressing. filler Jelly. Get a quart ot cider that Is fresh, boll It three minutes with a stick of cinna mon, a teaspoonful of lemon Juice, and. If necessary, a little sugar, th amount depending on the sweetneaa of the cider. DIsmIvo a tablrspoonful of gelatin In cold water, and pour th hot elder over; stir until dissolved, strain through flan nel, and put on Ice. It ons has sweet pickled crabapples In the preserve closet, the Jelly looks very pretty surrounded by a row ot these I or, seckle pears, plcktod, may be used. In the Illril Court. The Judge Now, sir.
