Cause For Gratitude.
If ever we are tempted to say that,
though others have mutch to b~e thank
ful for, our lives are hard and our
p~athis are thorny let us stop a minute
and see by what standard we are
measuring our blessings. If we iook
at a cripple plodding along witha
cruatehes we cannot help being thank
ful that wve have feet which serve tas
well and that we can walk and ruan
without so much as considering the
effort. When the rain beats on the
roof at night we may be thankful for
the house that shelters us, Wh'len thte
doctor calls naext door to see aln in.

N TIE WAY
' TO THE++
A MIGHTY anthem, rising to
Joined in on every hand
Where men work out the pur
poses of life,
Resounds throughout the land.
We greet the boundless store of
The wealth of mill and mart,
But all too often naught but
these give out
Song's keynote to the heart.
F OR truest praise is in the
soul of prayer,
A hope of heaven's grace,
Continued love in which mere
Can have no foremost place.
So, while the organs swell and
In music's varied tongue,
Thanks even truer may go lip to
Unspoken anu unsung.
-Peter A. Doyle in Baltimore
In the Sixtoenth Century.
Queen Elizabeth issued a proclamann

"On Thanksgiving day no servie labor
may be iperformied, and thanks should

FOLLOW THE ANCIENT RITUAL
Samaritans of Today Observe the
Passover With All the Traditional
"The Samiaritans stood close togeth
er to prevent the Mahometan specta
tors, who delight to torment them,
from snatching even a bit of wool,
which would remain over and thus
cause them to break the command,
'Ye shall let nothing of it remain until
the morning,'" says a writer in the
"After cleansing the lambs they re
moved a front leg of each, and these
were set apart as the priest's portion.
A long wooden pole was then threaded
through each of the prepared lambs,
and was carried thus to the pit near
by, wherein a largo fire, which had
been kindled oarly in the evening, had
burned down, leaving a bed of red-hot
coals at the bottom. The poles, pro
tected by metal at the lower end, were
stuck into tills bed of coals, being long
enough to reach to the top of the pit,
the lambs thus suspended about half
way up. A matting was placed over
the mouth of the pit, which in turn
was covered with earth, making .a sort
of improvised oven, for the law do
mands that 'they be roast with fire,
not sodden with water.'
"The sheep were left to roast until
midnight-the appointed hour-and all
but the guards retired to their teuts
during the interval.
"Being the guests of the Kahin, we
went to his tent, and he edified us by
reading the various laws in Leviticus
concerning the sacrifices, besides the
chapter which gives the narrative of
the first Passoyer."
EYES TOO MUCH NEGLECTED'
Residents of Cities, in the Aggregate,
Are the Chief Offenders, for
The farmer at work in his fields all
day long has much better eyesight
than the city resident. .Farmers, as a
rule, have no need of artificial aid to
the eyes until old ago comes upon
On the farm the eyes receive more
rest than in the city, because they
work at more natural angles. The
farmer's work is not right up under
his nose. In cases of most city peo
ple their work is over books or ma
chines, and they have a habit of stoop
ing over it.
This affects the eyes so that glasses
are necessary for relief. Nine-tenths
of the people who are suffering fromt
headaches and who wonder what the
trouble is can blame them on the treat
mont they give their eyca. Not enough
city people wear glas:ses. Perhap.;<o
in fifty wears glasses whre the av
erage should be about one 'i every ten.
Children are affected in this way.
Most children lean over their dcewk
and have their eyes close to their
books. Teachers sho1uld pwerent them;
from doing this. Where chiliren erre
forced to wear glass;es it is not neO'3
sary that they should havo to wear
them all the time. When the clil iren
are at play they ought, in most cases,
to he allowed to go without their
