THURSDAY, November 2S11i will be
Thanksgiving Day. Tin President lias
appointed the same by general proclamation
in which he emphasizes the special cause for
thanksgiving on this occasion which far outrun
those of former years. This year we have a
special and moving cause to be grateful and to
rejoice. God in his good pleasure has given
us peace; not the peace that was predicted by
many good authorities as the best we could
expect, the peace of exhaustion, a stalemate
in which it would be hard to tell which was the
victor, or in which the victor would be nearly
as badly ruined ns the vanquished, but a peace
of transcendent victory, and presumably
all issues and aims we were lighting for.
Never before in the history of our country
never before at any rate in the last fifty
years, has there leen so constraining an oc
casion for Thanksgiving and tiie recognition
of the providence of (Sod; never before in our
time has the duty and fitness of Thanksgiv
ing celebration been so clear and so emphatic.
More than ever should we cease upon that
day from our ordinary occupations and in our
homes and places of worship render thanks
to God, ruler of the nations, for his many bles
sings and mercies to us as a people. Let us
not be like the lepers of old whom the Master
condemned; "Were they not ten lepers cleans
ed? Where are the nine? There are not found
that returned to give glory to God but this
THE FOURTH LIBERTY LOAX THE
GREAT E EST SIXGLE EYE XT
IX FIXAXC1AL HISTORY
The United States Government asked a
loan from the people of the country of $i,0(IO,
000,000, an amount unprecedented in all the
history of the world. In three weeks' time,
in spite of an epidemic of influenza which
prevented public meetings and cost the people
many millions of dollars in medical bills and
lost time, aud in spite, too, of the peace rum
ors that in some instances had a tendency to
make the success of the loan seem lesn vital,
some 21,000,000 of the American people offered
to the Gevernment $;,S;,41 (!,:!)). Each Fed
eral Reserve district oversubscribed its quota.
Thousands of cities, towns, and communities
oversubscribed their quotas. Secretary Mc
Adoo says that the Fourth Liberty Loan is
the greatest single event in financial history.
The Fourth Loan was called the fighting
loan ; it is a record of Americanism comparable
with the record that our soldiers on the battle
fronts and our sailors on the 'seas have made.
The people at home have given loyal support
to onr fighting men.
" Our soldiers held every acre of ground
they took. Let the jieople at home hold every
Liberty Bond they have taken,
i . A Liberty Bond is a certificate of patriot
ism; keep it to slrow to our boys when they
come back from Europe.
WOMAN'S' SHARE IN TIIE GREAT WAR
WHEN the trumpet of war calls and a
mighty host of men march to the fray,
an aching void is left in the homes from which
they came. The men that go, in response to
the call of duty and patriotism, cut loose from
home ties lightly, perhaps, fired by patriotism,
and the love of adventure, youth obeys gladly
and proudly. What of the woman's share?
The mothers that bore and reared these
sons, and who know their traits, good, bad
and indifferent; they say good bye to them
with aching hearts and tear-blinded eyes, and
yet with a great pride, realizing that they
are going in response to their country's call,
and to guard and defend their common
homes and their noblest traditions.
Is the mother's share of sacrifice fully
understood and appreciated? It is doubtful.
Who but a mother can measure Ihe
pieciousness of a son, so intimately a part of
her self and of the family?
All honor to these brave mothers, who
willingly sent their sons into the jaws of
death, uncomplaining, but with heavy hearts
and ill forebodings. No full measure of com
mendation and praise can ever be afforded
these silent heroines, whose chief duty well
fulfilled and that peace of mind and soul,
which God gives to every true woman, who
willingly sacrifices her best, and perhaps, all,
in a noble and. world wide effort.

THE following letter was printed in the
New York "Tribune" of December 21 :
To the Editor of the Tribune
"Sir An honest German woman of Nashville,
Wisconsin, says :
"'If the Germans here don't like America,
let them go back to Germany, where the poor
live like swine. It took me three years to save
enough money to get to this country, and I
had to borrow a little then to get a ticket
for the trip. The people there wear wooden
shoes, held on by a strap across the top, and
I wore a pair when I came here; but 1 saved
enough out of my first week's "wages to buy
a pair of leather ones. That was more than
I could save in a month in Germany. They
live like hogs over there, whole families in
two small rooms, where they dress and un
dress before each other. It seemed like heaven
when I got to America and had a room all
" 'The American people have treated me fine,
and never once made me feel like a lickspittle,
as the rich people do in Germany. The Ger
man people here must not take the American
courtesy and forebearance for fear of cow
ardiceno, sir, or they will get an awful
bump soon. I know the American reserve and
strength better than most people of my nation
ality. 1 think they have given us every chance
in the world to get along and prosper, and
it is a mean and dirty thing now to go to
bragging and encouraging our country's enemy,
Germany, a country that is so conceited that
it thinks it can run the world. Germany is
the worst place in the world for a person to
live, and 1 would as soon be in hell this minute
ns to go back where I came from in Germany.'
"Wisconsin -has its Teutonic troubles, but
Ihis German woman is not one of them.
