Thursday will 1m what is known nil over the United States as
"Tlinnkspivinn Day." It is tlie one occasion in tlie whole year when
we pause in tlie race after the mighty dollar, or in discussions, of the
HreHt war, or in criticisms of the Rovcrnment or government 'otlieials, to
give thanks to the Supreme Power over and aoc everything else for the
blessings we have enjoyed during the twelve-month. It is n fine idea;
there is something akin to the divine in it. On "Kauai we hope that the
spirit of the day and occasion may he given full play.
The scythe of the Silent Reaper has fallen upon Jack I,ondon at
what would seem to have Ken the critical period of his history. Of ob
scure origin, and self-developed through a maze of obstacle., ho gained
the footlights of literature while still a voting man, and has died with
millions to mourn him. Most of these milUor.s. be it said, arc
of the class whose emotions arc easily stirred. Men and wonu n who seek
the inspiring and ennobling in literature failed to rind it (Utihus. at
least,) in the olTcrings of .lack London. But there were reasons to hope
for better things something larger and higher and purer. In other
words, the American part of the world hoped land felt) that Jack Lon
don would "mellow" into the class of writers whose memorie v- now
contemplate with pride and wner.nion; and there will nnd mI'V ily In
genuine regret, aniens tlie N-st
longer have him with us.

the world lost one of its most remarkable nun and a most unusaal
life came to a close. Franz Joseph Wjjs one of the oldest, reigning
monarchs, and had a career which wa In set from start to finish by as
sassinations, intrigue, rebellions and war. Future historians will prob
ably agree that he did well under thi" extraordinary circumstances ob
structing the success of his administration; and it may lc well to let it go
at that. The following oflicial facts concerning the royal family of Austria
should be interesting in this connection:
