THE PRESIDENT'S PBOCtASIAXION. According to the yearly custom of our people, it falls upon the president, at this season to appoint a day of festi val and thanksgiving to God. Over a century and a quarter has passed since this country took its place among the natious of the earth, and during that time we have bad on the whole, more to be thankful for than has 'alien to the lot of any other peo ple. Generation after generation has grown to manhood and passed away. Each has had to bear its peculiar bur dens, each to face its special crisis, and each has krown years of grim trial, when the country was menaced by malice, domestic or foreign envy when the hand of the Lord was heavy upon it in drought or flood or pesti lence when, in bodily distress or an guish of soul, it paid the penalty of folly ana forward heart. Nevertheless decade by decade, we have struggled onward and upward we now abundant ly enjoy material well-being, and un der the fayor of the Most High, we are striving earnestly to achieve moral and spiritual uplifting. The yoar that has juBt closed has been one of peace a"hd, overflowing plenty. Rarely has any people enjoyed greater prosperity than we are now enjoying, For this we render heartfelt and solemn thanks to the Giver of Good and we seek to praise Him not by words only, but by deeds, by the way in which we do our duty to ourselves and our fellow men. Now, therefore, I, Theodore Roose velt, president of the United States, do hereby designate as a day of general thanksgiving, Thursday, the twenty seventh of the coming November, and do recommend that throughout the land the people cease from their ordi nary occupations, and in their several houses and places of worship, render thanks unto Almighty God for the manifold blessings of the past year. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my band and caused the $eal of the United States to be affixed. Done at the city of Washington this 29th day of October, in the year of our Lord One Thousand Nine Hundred and Two, and of the Independence of the United States the One Hundred and Twenty-Seventh. By the President: THKODORE ROOSEVELT. JOHN HAY, Secretary of State. MICKS ON NOVEMBER. The first storm movements for this month will be central on the 3rd and 4th. On and touching these days a rise in temperature, falling barometer, cloudiness and rain will pass eastwardly from western ex tremes to the Atlantic. The western and northern sides of this and all storm areas at this season, will most likely turn to snow, and as the high barometer pushes in from the north west behind the storms, high, cold winds and freezing, clear weath er will succeed. Remember that, as a rule, the cold, clearing weather be gins in the northwest before the storm areas reach central and eastern extremes of the country. Actual storms of rain and snow, as well as the warm, fair weather before, and the cold, fair weather behind them always pass, like great railroad trains, from west to east across the states. .. The secdnd storm period for No vember will be central on the 9th ex tending from the 7th to the 12th. This is a regular Vulcan period, with moon at first quarter on the 7th, and on the celestial equator on the nth.

The anti storm conditions follow ing the preceeding period will break down about the 15th and 16th which are reactionary storm days. The moon is full on the 15th and at her perigee on the 16th, also at her highest point northward in the sky on the 17th. Therefore on and touching the 15th and 16th low ba rometer, rising temperature and wide areas of the renewed rain, turn ing to snow generally to northward, will pass eastwardly from the tar west over the country. Be on "the watch, first for warmer, pleasant weather, then for cloudiness, and rain, then for shift of temperature and wind and snow, then for high barometer, stiff northerly gales and cold, clearing weather—not all at once on your patch, but each in regular rotation. One of the mark ed storm periods of the month falls in and near the center of a mercury period. This Vulcan period covers the 19th to 23rd. Be prepared at this time for all the progressive phe nomena of a very active storm pe riod.
