Other buildings may be erected, but
they will be of a mere temporary
character. This building wilt endure
through the centuries If the legisla
ture so determines. It will be built,
at any rate. In such n way that It will
remain until man raxes It. In Its
construction It will be n type of a
fireproof granite edifice, worthy to
remain n a monument of Its day.
The style of the building will be in
keeping with the other buildings of
the fair. There will be the sweeping
front, marked by columns of gran
ite. A colonnade of such columns Is
to run across the entire front, form

this feature will be notable, there i
surmounting the whole a superb
dome, nNo made of stone, which will
be a landmark to St, Louis, Such a
structure must necessarily be of slow

following the uutuuin marked by Bur'
goyne's surrender. This may" be
looked upon as the first national1
Thanksgiving day, nnd the one ap
pointed by Washington us the first
after the establishment of the gov
ernment. In regard to the Conti
nental celebration, Congress passed
the following resolution: "That a
committee of three be nppolnted to
prepare a recommendation to the
several states to set apart n day for
thanksgiving for the signal success
lutcly obtained over the enemies of
these United States."
Of the very first Thanksgiving on
our shores there Is no formal procla
mation extant, although we have val
uable records which tell us how that
day was kept. Long, long ago, about
!i0 years ago, Plymouth's nnclent
(book) of I.nwcs decreed that "It be in
the Power of the Governor to com
mand solemn days of humlllncon by
fasting and also for thanksgiving as
occasion shall be offered." Oov.
Bradford, lu 1(121, exercised this pow
er by appointing a day for Thanks
giving, and this was the very first
American Thanksgiving, tho Harvest
Festival of New England. It is inter
estingly described In a letter written
by Edward Winslow, dated December
"You shall understand that, In this lit
tle time that a few of us have been here,
we have built seven dwelling-houses and
four for the use-ot the plantation and bavs
made preparation for divers others,
"We set the Jast spring snm so acres of
Indian corn, and sowed some six acres
of barlsy and pesie; and according to the
manner of-the Indians we. manured our
ground with herrings, or rather shads,
which we 'have In grest abunH.nce, and
take withgreat ease at our doors. Our
sera dut rove wsllj and Oad be braised,
or labour or attend any sports on
such days n slml be appointed by the
Court by humiliation by fasting nnd
prayer or for publlcke Thanksgiving
on penalty of five shillings."
A penalty of five shilling If one
failed to observe Thanksgiving Day!
Those old l'urltuiis were about as In
tolerant as Hie masters they hud fled,
It would seem, In matters both secu
lar und spiritual. But, come to think
of it, all matters were to them, In the
iinul analysis, of spiritual eoneern.
If everybody was forced to be thnnk
ful, willy nllly, It was because the
old Fathers thought every one ought
to be thankful. And. to-day, though
no fine U imposed if we neglect to
keep the day, still we feel somewhat
churlish if we do not lay down uc
customed toll, betake ourselves to
Divine service, and later to the feast
ing that for so ninny, many years
hus followed the religious rlte.s.

Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
"Dear Mrs. Pinkham: When life looked brightest- to me I
sustained a hard fall and Internal complications were the lesult
I was considerably inflamed, did not feel that I could walk, and lost
my good spirits. I spent money doctoring without any help, when a
relative visited our home. She was so enthusiastic over- Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, having used it herself, that
nothing would satisfy her until I sent for a bottle. I have thanked
her a hundred times for it since, for it brought blessed health to me
and cured me within seven weeks.
I now wish to thank you, your medicine is a friend to suffering
women." Lillie Degenkolbe.

Ottawa, Can.,. Nov. SS. This city Is
stirred up as never before. Some seres
years ago the local papers published
an account of a man named Oeorge
U. Kent, ot 408 Gllmour street, who
was dying of Bright's Disease and
who at the very last moment after sev
eral of our best physicians had de
clared he couldn't live twelve hours,
was saved by Dodd's Kidney Pills.
People who know how low Mr, Kent
was refused to believe that be was
cured permanently, and the other day
in order to clinch the matter the pa
pers published the whole case over
again and backed up their story by
sworn statements made by Mr. Kent
in which he declares most positively
that in 1804 he was given up by ths
doctors and that Dodd's Kidney Pills
ond nothing else saved him, and furth
er that since the day that Dodd's Kid
ney Pills sent him back to work seven
years ago, he has not lost a single min
ute from his work (he is a printer in
the American Note Printing Com
pany). Mr.' Kent Is kept quite busy during
lils spare hours answering inquiries
personally and by letter, but he is so
grateful that he counts the time well
spent. Indeed he and hit wife have
shown their gratitude to Dodd's Kid
ney Pills In a very striking way by
having their little girl, born in 1896,
christened by the name of "Dodds."
Altogether It is the most sensational
case that has ever occurred la the his
tcry of medicine in Canada and the
perfeet substantiation of every detail
leaves no room to doubt either the
completeness or the permanency of
The local Physicians have made the
case of Kent and Dodd'a Kidney Pills
the subject of discussion at several of
the private meetings of their Association.
