throughout tho lnnd to cease from their

homes and placed of workshlp render
thanks to Almighty God."
Tho proclamation follows:
It has long been tho honored custom of
our people to turn In the fruitful autumn
of tho year In praise and thanksgiving
to Almighty God, for his many blessings
and mercies to u ns a nation. Tho yeur
that Is now drawing to a close since we
last observed our day of National
Thanksgiving has been, while a year of
discipline because of the mighty forces
of war and of change which have dis
turbed the world, also a year of special
blessing for us.
It has been vouchsafed for us to re
main at peace, with honor, und In some
parts to succor tho suffering and supply
the needs of those who aro In want. We
have been privileged by our own peace
and Belf-control In some degree to steady
the- counsels and shapo the hopes and
purposes of a day of fear and distress.
Oui people have looked upon their own
lifo as a nation with a deeper compre

pirtctical significance of what their pait

WAR'S EFFECT AT HOME.
The hurtful effects of foreign war In
their own Industrial and commercial af
fairs have made them feel tho more fully
nnd see the moro clearlj- their mutual de
pendence upon one another, nnd have
stirred them to a helpful co-operation
such as they have seldom practiced be
fore. They have been quickened by a
great moral stimulation. Their unmis
takable ardor for pence, their earnest
pity and disinterested sjmpathy for those
who are suffering, their readiness to help
and to think of the needs of others have
revealed them to themselves as well as
to the world.
Our crops will feed all who need food;
the self-possession of our people amid the
most serious anxieties and difficulties and
tho steadiness and resourcefulness of our .
business men will serve other nations as i
well as our own. ,
The business of the country has been '
supplied with new Instrumentalities and i
the commerce of the world with new
channels of trade and Intercourse. The
Panama Canal has been opened to the
commerce of the nations. Tho two conti

have the people of the United States been
so situated for their own advantage or
the advantage of their neighbors, or so
equipped to serve themselves.
Therefore, I. Woodrow Wilson. Presi
