observe in their own peculiar manner.
Each religion has its own, but- there
is one Thanksgivhig day for all, when
all, of whatever faith, can, in their
own way, call on God and praise Je
sus or Mohammed or Buddha.
Nov. 18, 1787, was our first national
Thanksgiving day, ordained by the act
of the Continental congress and pro
claimed by George Watshington. The(.%
day was set alititi. in the words of tile
resolution, to expressi gratitude that
God had been pliased to "smile o 11s in
thle prosecul lt of a just. aid 11(bolsary
war for tie deense and estabIishment
of our 11una lenab1ie right Is anu1d liberty."

mission inl congress about tle propriety
Of thle president's asiking people to give
thanks for a constitution for which
some of then were not thankful.
it was later that the last Thursday
li November came to he the day
iosen, when no marked event Indi
enied another day, and the Uanks of
the nation, united under the constitu
tion, were expressed on Nov. 28, 1789.
Since that day tile custom has never
been omitted entirely, although uintil
the civil war it Was only occasionally
observed except in New England.
It wits our (ivil war which brought
tI peopl to a1 new sense of national
ieness, and since 1863 (lie president

ANP REMEDY FOUND
Balanced Diet the Cure. Says Dem,,.

by Wrong Systeii of I)letIing.
Washington, Novei bcr I I.--I)iscov
cry of the cause and cure for pellagra
was announiced formally tonight by
the public health serviec. The an
nouncement follows the recent publica
tion of a report by Surgeon General
*oseph Goldberger on a year of ex
teriients in co-operation witi South
ern States health oIlleers, demtonst rat
ing the corre-et ies; (if tile theory that
a onerided diet lackinl- in iprlot(is
would caluse the disewe and that a
well balaiced diot would cure it.
"The spread of this dread aly,
whict has been incireasing In tle
'nited States at a terrillic rate duiiring
the past fe' years, may now be
checked, anid eventually eradilcated,"
.ays the service statement. "It is es
timated that 75,000 cases of the dis
ease will have occurred In the United
States in 1915, and of this number at
least 7,500 will have died before the
end of tle year. In many sections only
tuberculosis and pneumonia exceed it
as a cause of death."
The final dietary tests made by
Surgeon Goldberger and Assistant Sur
geon G. A. Wheeler at lie farm of the
Mississippi penitentiary, where half
a dozen of eleven convicts were given
pellagra by feeding them for five
months on bountiful meals, consisting
chiefly of cereals and sweets and lack
Ing in meats, minlk, eggs, beans and
peas. The Victims reeltly were par
