Another cause for thanksgiving, ac
cording to the same high authority, Is
"the great degree of Internal tranquillity
we have enjoyed. To which is added
'our cause for thankfulness for the re
cent confirmation of that tranquillity by
the suppression of an Insurrection which
to wantonly threatened It."
And In auother place the President re
pents this Idea, asking hla people "to
render a tribute of praise and gratitude
to the Great Disposer of all events, for
the aeasonable control which haa been
given lu a spirit of disorder In the sup
pression of the late Insurrection." What
the President had In mind In this allu
sion was the "great whisky Insurrection"
In Pensylvanla In 171)4, caused by the
passage by Congress of acta imposing
duties upon spirits distilled and upon
stills. It waa finally suppressed by Gov.

Knrly In the evening the boys worked
Industriously at their lsntern, cutting
ryes, iioae and mouth. Then little pieces
of caudle were placed liisl.ie, and It was
truly a hideous-looking thing. Mrs.
Phillips, who was busy preparing the
Thanksgiving dainties for that glad day,
did not notice the hoys atialthlly leave
the house. She despised a menu action,
and Hob and Roy knew she would not
approve of their unkind sport. They
qiiirkly crossed the fields and walked
down a hill Into a lonely, damp hollow.
Right before them stood a small, tumble
down house with a feeble light shining
from one tiny window. The boys crept
tn this side and crouched beneath It.
Just as Boh was about to raise the Inn-

good will and brought a great basket of
tHitntoea, turnips, apples, and, last but
not least, a huge turkey, all ready for
roasting. These things, together with
the pumpkins, were curried with much
smothered laughter to the door of the
little old tumble-down house. The golden
balls filled with goodies held the place
of honor and were stationed directly be
fore the door. The boys had the pleas
ure of kicking on the door and then dived
Into the darkness.
The door flew open and a young voice
called, "Mother, oh, come and tee theae
