History of Thanksgiving in America.
The first observance of Thanksgiv

Newfoundland, in 1621, the day being
set apart by the first settlers to give
thanks for tho safe arrival on tho
Island after a long and stormy pas
In New England the Puritan fath

a Popisli festival, originated Thanks

they have a lay to take the place of

History states that in February,
?1631, Hie colony at Charlestown,
Mass., was reduced to the very point
of starvation, and when a vessel with
supplies arrived from England a day
of public thanksgiving and rejoicing
was ordered by the Governor. This
ls considered to have been tho first
thanksgiving day hold in America.
During the following year frequent
days of thanksgiving were appointed
in tho New England colonies, some
times twice in one year and for spe
cial reasons-a victory over tile In
dians, the arrival of a ship with col
onists or provisions, or some other
happy event. Later tho day came to
be set apart in the autumn or the
early winter to give thanks for tho

Thanksgiving Day was a national
institution during tho Revolutionary
War, and was annually recommend
ed by Congress; but after a general
thanksgiving for peace In 17 84, there
was no observance until 17S9, when
President Washington, by request of
Congross, recommended a thanksgiv
ing for the adoption of Hie constitu
tion, in 1815 a day of thanksgiving
for Hie restoration of peace was rec
ommended by President .Madison.
During Hie early part of the cen
tury thanksgiving remained an insti
tution peculiar to New longland, but
was not always held cither on Hie
same day or in the same month, each
state appointing its own day. Proc
lamations recommending special days
of thanksgiving for victories In Hie
Civil War were issued by President
Lincoln In 1802 and 1863, and in
1S64 he appointed the national pro

HOW TUAlS?Atr CURED HIMSELF.
Say? Ho SavoU. His Lifo by Diot and
Senator Benjamin R. Tillman, in
stead of being dead and burled, as
his breakdown a few years ago
seemed to Indicate, would soon come
to pass, ls still In the land of tho
living and intends to remain here
indefinitely. His story as he tells lt
in Physical Culture ls a tribute to
tho efficacy of diet and exercise.
"I went to Europe in search of
health," he says, "but returned un
improved. In fact, 1 was In so help
less a condition that 1 attracted tho
attention of tho captain of the ship
as I came home OK lt. lt was through
bis efforts that I am alive to-day. He
advised me to try physical culture,
which ls much practiced In his na
tivo country, Norway.
"While 1 am not completely cured,
I believe I am at least permanently
relieved of tho trouble that threat
ened my life. 1 made an exhaustive
study of anatomy, hygiene and phys
ical culture. I then placed this theo
retical knowledge in practice.
"Whereas formerly I ate whatever
I wanted, and when 1 wanted lt,
foods that were non-nourishing and
positively Injurious, 1 now subsist
on a well regulated diet of fruits,
cereals, vegetables, eggs, milk, and
occasionally fish and fowl. The new
diet has proved a boon, and' I -am |
nourishing on it. I eat three sparing
meals a day-breakfast, lunch and
dinner. I consume hot water before
and after eating.
"I begin the day by first, practic
ing deep breathing before an open
window. I continue these exercises
for five or ten minutes, always hold
ing my breath until the count of ten.
Then I. exhale. I go through the
same movements while reclining on
the flat of my back.
"I next go through a series of
physical culture movements of my
own evolution with a three-pound
pair of dumbells. After working up
a glowing perspiration I take a tepid
bath. Then, an hour after, I eat
"Walking, which ls sadly neglected
by young and old alike, is the only
hobby I have outside of being a phys
ical culturlst. It is the greatest of
all exercises. I practice deep breath
ing while walking.
"Heretofore when an important
bill was pending before the Senate
that necessitated many hours of care
ful deliberation under hygienic con
ditions most unfavorable, such as
breathing vitiated air, as the Senate
Chamber ls poorly ventilated, I was
the victim of headaches. Deep
breathing, however, has overcome all
this, and I advise any one to try lt
thus afflicted under like conditions."
A BEAUTIFUL MARBLE SHAFT.
Marks tho Historic Spot Where An
cient Church Was Built.
Pendleton, Nov. 18.-On Saturday,
November 9th, a company of about
fifty people assembled to witness tho
unveiling of a marble shaft to mark
the "Hopewell-Keowee" church. This
was the Presbyterian church founded
by Gen. Andrew Plckens and Col.
Robert Anderson, about 1788 or
1789. It was built of logs and was
on Gen. Plckens* farm, about three
miles northwest from Pendleton.
1 Preaching was conducted at this
church till about 1801 or 1802, when
the building, (1801), now known as
"the Old Stone Church," was finished,
and services were removed thither,
I as lt. was more centrally located.
The lirst elders of Hopewell-Keo
wee were Gen. Andrew Plckens, Col.
Robert Anderson and Major Dickson,
all soldiers of the Revolution; its
llrst minister was Rev. .lohn Simpson,
i Mr. Simpson remained but a short
I while and was followed by Rev. Thos.
Ilvese D. D., who was pastor till
1790. and whose grave was the first

and was as good as he was learned,

Rev. W. H. Mills, of Clemson Col
lege, made the first address, calling
attention to the chief contribution of
these great men to the civilization
of their own day as being this, that
they were devoted and zealous in
their support of Hie church. Dr. R.
F. Divver, ol' Anderson, spoke on
Rev. .John Simpson and his life and
labors. Both these speakers paid
eloquent tributes to Capt. J. Miles
Plckens, of Pendleton, to whose un

Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of tile ear.
There is only one way to euro deaf
ness, and Hint is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness ls caused by an
in flamed condition of the Eustachian
tube. When tills tube is inflamed
you bavo a rumbling sound or im
perfect hearing, and when lt ls en
tirely closed, deafness is thc result,
and unless tho inflammation can bo
taken out and tills tubo restored to
its normal condition, bearing will be
destroyed forever; nine cases out of
ten are caused by catarrh, which is
nothing but an Inflamed- condition of
tho mucous surfaces.
We will give ono hundred dollars
for any case of deafness (caused by
catarrh) that cannot bo cured by
