STANDARD WEIGHTS FIXED
Each County Should Have the Offi
There is not a little discussion in
some counties as to the question of
weights and measures. The issue
seems to have been joined at first by
two rival concerns which sell compu
ting scales, Governor HeyWafd has
received perhaps a dozen letters from
clerks' bf Court iii refererice to the
standard measures which s'li??lu bc in
the court houses in compliance with
an act passed in 1S42.

weights and measures must he regu

gress of the United States, that- the
weights furnished hy the federal gov

treasurer and by such shall all weights
inf the State be regulated.

nor Heyward wrote to the department
of commerce and labor at Washington,
stating-the case and askiilg if this

Mr. F. B. Ross, acting director of the
bureau of standards, has written to
the governor as follows:

"In regard to the Weights and

When, nearly three centuries ago,
tho first settlers came io the country
which han now become this great re
public; they fronted not only hard
ships'hut terrible risk lo their lives. In
those grim years tili' custom grew of
setting apart one day iii each year
foi- a special service of thanksgiving
to the Almighty for preserving the
people through the changing seasons.
The cus toni Las :tow become national
and hallowed by immemorial usage.
We live in easier and more plenti
ful times tiwi our forefathers, the
men who with rugged strength faced
the rugged days; and yet the dan
gers to national M? are quite as great
now as at any previ?tl?.Hine in our
history. It is eminently littilfg that
once a year our people should set
apart a day for praise and thanks
giving lo the Giver of good, and, at
the same time, tiltil they express
their thankfulness for th? abundant
mercies received,, should manfully
acknowledge their .shortcomings and
pledge themselves solemnly and in
good faith to strive to overcome them.
During the past year we have been
blessed with . bountiful crops. Our
business prosperity has been great.
No other paople has ever stood on as
high a level of material well-being as
ours now stands. We are not threat
ened by foes from without ? The foes
from whom we should pray to be de
livered are our own passions, ap
petites and follies; and against these
there is always need that we should
Therefore, I now set apart Thurs
day, the 30th day of this November,
as a Day of Thanksgiving for the
past and of prayer for the future,
and on that day I ask that through
-on^tjhe land the people gather in their
homes~**ancl placeg_o| jworship., and in
rendering thanks unto the J\l5s^~Higlr "
for manifold blessings of the past
year, consecrate themselves to a life
of clenlincss, honor and wisdom, so
that ibis nation may do its allotted
work on the earth in a manner
worthy of those who founded it and
of those who preserved it.
In witness thereof, I have hereunto
set my hand and caused the seal of
thc United States to be affixed.
