THABTISGIVING DAY THOUGHTS.
Earth Not the Only Abiding Place of
of God's People.
It cannot be that earth is man's
only abiding place. It cannot be that
our life is a bubble cast up by the
ocean of eternity to float a moment
upon its waves and sink into nothing
ness. Else, why is it the high and
glorious aspirations which leap like
angels from the temple of our hearts
are forever wandering unsatisfied
Why is it that the rainoow and cloud
come over us with a beauty that pass
off and leave us to muse of theli
Why is it that the stars which hold
their festival around the midnight
throne are set above the grasp of our
limited faculties, forever mocking us
with their unapproachable glory? And
finally, why is it that the bright forms
of human beauty are presented to our
view and' taken from us, leaving the
thousand streams of our affections to
blow back in an Alpine torrent upon
our hearts? We are born for higher
destiny than that of the earth.
There ia a realm, where the rain
bow never fades, where the stars will
be spread out before us like the is
lands that slumber on the ocean and
where the beautiful beings which pass
before us like shadows will stay for
ever in our presence. In these beau
tiful thoughts we can all find much
to be thankful for, even if a vacant
chair is in our home and the dark
side of life seems turned towards us.
They will place a silver lining back
of any cloud. We all have much to
be thankful for.

ous parts of the state were present

a most pleasant and delightful occa
sion, and was thoroughly enjoyed by
all who were present.

SOME FINANCIAL FIGURES.
The County Fair Made a Remarkable
The County Fair after paying all
Its current expenses for running this
year made a net clearance of from
$3,000 to $4,000. In other words the
money derived from admissions, rent
ing floor spaces In the main building,
and all other sources, paid every ex
pense of the Fap.r for this year, and
will leave a balance of about $3,500
for the Fair treasury.
Of the $10,000 capital stock,
only about $7,000 has been collected.
The buildings at the Fair grounds
cost about $9,000 while the land
cost $5,500, making the total cost of
grounds and l^nds about $14,500.
Now it' the entire capital stock were
paid in together with the surplus
froL* this year's run, would only lack
$500 to be able to pay for a complete
$14,500 equipment; which will at all
times be well worth the money in
vested. Therefore the stock of the
County Fair Association ought to be
worth $14 a share instead of the par
value of $10.
This is indeed a fine record, and
one that the management may be
proud of. Next year, however, they
contemplate making the Fair even
better, and are now thinking seri
ously of having a negro building put
up. At the same time they want to
build a woman's building, with an
auditorium on tho second floor. Need
less to say that these additions would
make the Fair much better than it
was this time.
The Fair next year will only be
four days instead of five, thereby giv
ing exhibitors Monday of the week in
which to j)ring their exhibits in, and
the last day of the week for them
to take them home. The advertising
spaces in the main building will be
for rental again next year. Already
three of them have been reserved,
and the remaining spaces will be tak
en up easily by next year.
Program at Theato.
"A Handsomer Man," which it a
Vitagraph to be exhibited at The The
ato today. It is entitled toninstinted
praise, for it is essentially one of the
funniest and most comical of motion
pictures. The comic situations that
tIiis man finds himself in are enjoyed
by every one but himself?a jealous
person is never amusing to himself,
but intensely droll to observers. So
you will find "A Handsomer 'Man"
