Today is Thanksgiving day. It
is to bo hoped the day will be
fittingly observed and not dese
crated as it. usually is by only
feasting and reveling. True e

honor to his creator for the boun
tiful yield of good things, but
why should not this nation set a-
part at least one holy day for
such purpose? Then let each one
of us do our part to have the day
universally observed. We can
only do our part, but our part is
all that we will have to account
