THANKSGIVING, SO SAYS PRESIDENT BILL
MCKINLEY IN A PROCLAMATION.
RECOUNTS II JS JE SEES . lt.
Thursday, Novombor 30, is Designated as
tho Day to bo Obsorved.
WASHINGTON, October 26.-Tho
President to-duy issued tho follow
ing Thanksgiving proclamation :
"A. national custom dear to the
hearts of the people calls for the set
ting apart of one day in each year ns
?in occasion of special thanksgiving
to Almighty God for the blessings of
the preceding year. This honored
observance acquires with time a ten
dor significance. It enriches do
mestic life. It summons under tho
family roof tho absent children to
glad reunion with those they love.
"Seldom has this nation had
greater causo for profound thanks
giving. No great pestilence has in
vaded our shores. Liberal employ
ment waits upon labor. Abundant
crops have rewarded tho efforts of
tho husbandman. Increased com
forts have come to the home. The
national finances have been strength
ened, and public credit has been sus
tained and made firmer. In all
branches of industry and trade thero
has been a steady gain in the moral
and educational grow th of our na
"Churches and schools have flour
ished. American patriotism has
been exalted. Those engaged in
maintaining the honor of the Hag
with such signal success have been
in a largo degree spared from dis
aster and disease. An honored pence
has been ratified with a foreign na
tion with which wo were at war, and
we are now on friendly relations
with every power on earth.
"The trust which we have assumed
for the people of Cuba has been faith
fully advanced. There is ma? ked pro
gress toward the restoration of healthy
industrial conditions, and under wiso
sanitary regulations the island has
enjoyed exemption from tho scourge
of fever. The hurricane which
swept, over our new possession of
Porto Pico, destroying the homes
and property of the inhabitants,
called forth the instant sympathy of
the people of tho United States, who
were swift to respond with generous
aid to the sufferers. While tho in
surrection still continues in the island
of Luzon, business is resuming its
activity and confidence in the good
purposes of tho United States is be
ing rapidly established throughout
"For those reasons and countless
others, I, William McKinley, Presi
dent of the United States, do hereby
name Thursday, tho 30th day of
November next, as a day of general
thanksgiving and prayer, to be ob
served as such by all our people on
this continent and in our newly
acquired islands, as well as by those
who may be at sea or sojourning in
foreign lands ; and I advise that on
this day religious exercises shall be
conducted in tho churches or meet
ing places of all denominations, in
order that in the social features pf
the day its real significance may not
bo lost sight of, but fervent prayers
may be offered to tho most high for
a continuance of the divine guidance
without which man's efforts are vain,
and for divino < onsolation to those
whoso kindred and friends have sac
rificed their lives for country.
"I recommend also that on this day,
so far as may bo found practicable,
labor shall cease from its accustomed
toil and charity abound toward the
sick, tho needy and thepoor.
"In witness whoreof, I have sot
my hand and caused tho seal of tho
United States to be affixed.

Helton to make extensive experi

The sending of Dr. Scribner shows
very clearly that Secretary Wilson's
promise last summer to instituto ex
periments here was not an iii lu one,
but given in good faith.
As it was thought tho fanners of
Anderson county ure vitally affected
and earnestly concerned in tho di
versification of crops, a representa
tive of the Advocate was sent to
Belton whore ho spent several hours
with Dr. Scribner.
"My idea," said Dr. Scribner, "is
not to plant the grasses and plnntB
in such small quantities and on such
small tracts of land that the result
will be of no real practical value.
The secretary is anxious to know
what glasses will grow hore under
ordinary conditions, not what ones
will grow with extraordinary oare and
coddling-what grasses will flourish
on a tract of your land that is an
average in richness. With this in
view I carno hero at the invitation
of your Congressman, Mr. Latimor,
who has ! nully given the depart

a rule we have to pay for tho use of
