Wo have Just passed through a long
and heated political campaign in which
havo been discussed questions that vitally
affect nil tho people. These questions
havo been submitted to tho arbitrament
of tho ballot box and it Is a cause for
thanksgiving that our citizenship can
submit to tho mnndate of the majority,
and with one consent settle down to the
affairs of llfo and soon forget the- strife.
Tho estimates at tho present tlmo show
that never before have tho crops been so
abundant. This fact with the Just re
ward of labor, lnsuro comfortable homes
throughout the land. In this respect our
stato has been highly favored, for Ne
braska Is certainly the land of plenty
and comfortable firesides.
Another source for thanksgiving Is the
prcsenco of our schools and Institutions
of learning established and supported by
the liberality of the people and kept to a
degreo of excellence that places us In tho
front rank In tho lino of literacy, and
affording the very best cducationul ad
Vantages for our youth.
This, coupled with tho religious oppor
tunities afforded by our schools and de
nominational schools, tend to promote a
moral status In which all of us fcel a
commendable pride. For these and a
multitude of other things wo can heartily

president of the United States. I, Chester

2Sth day of November, 1912, bo sot apart as
a day of public and private thanksgiving
to the Giver of all good for the blessings
of tho past year. '
