"Thy bounty shines in Autumn uncon fined, sud spreads a. common feast for all that live." The month of November Is especially appropriate for the observance of Thanks giving, which has become one of four of our great national holidays. It is the har vest home of the sea-sons, the final gar i'.ering of the fruits which reward the toil of the busy year. To many it brings the fruition of hopes born of the bright new vear, while to all, let us hope, it brings thankfulness for some blessing sousht or unlocked for. Surely, as a nation, we do rot need to search long for reasons to Five thanks. And though individually we mav not have j?reat cause for re.-oieine-; for in many homes th day will find only sad hearts and mournful memories, this is the common lot of all. If we can not rejoice over-much within ourserves, let tis stop and coimt our mercies and com paring them with others, see if we can not, for this one day, live outside of our-pt-ives and our narrow circle and be one of the great common brotherhood of man; rejoicing- as one united family of patriotic Americans. WHY "WE CELEBRATE. While we have come to regard Thanks giving a commemoration distinctly our own, it may have had its origin in the Cereaiia of the P.jmans, the -wine festival of the Spanish Cid. or the harvest home of the Saxons and Celts. The idea of feasting in connection with, the devotional fcart of the services may have been sug gested to the mind of Governor Bradford oy these anniversaries. But the cause which led to the appointment of our first American Thanksgiving, was the deliver ance of the Puritans from peculiar trials that were sufficient to make the stoutest heart quail, and give way to despair. Ail know the story of the months of suffer ing this small handful of brave and inde pendent people endured. The weary toil, the patient waiting, the bitter disappoint ment when the drought threatened ruin to all their crops. It was then the stern, iron-souled old governor appointed a sea Con of prayer. And seemingly In answer to their petitions the rain descended upon ell the parched land, until the very earth rejoiced and took new life again. In those times not only one day. "but seven, were fet apart for this great celebration: be- f inning and ending witb prayer and praise o tiiat Providence which led them through their time of trial to brighter days. It is a far cry from that time to the present, but the general expression of fratitude has changed but little out ward -y. Instead of a week, however, we con fine the celebration to a day of actual participation; though in many sections the preparations for the feast occupy some days of labor on the part of the house wife. There are so many time and labor caving methods now adapted, that the oc casion ned cause littie unusual excite ment or bustle in' the household. Yet Thanksgiving would not be Thanksgiving without the odor of mince pies and other good and savory things floating through ine air. THE MANY GOOD THINGS. If there is. at any time, an excuse for reasonable human beings to be guilty of over-indulgence, it is certainly when this feast of over-generous nature is displayed In such tempting abundance before them. While we may not have the appetite to enjoy the liberality of the fruits of all the earth that are now set before us. as our forefathers enjnyed their simpler and more homely viands, still at this season of the year appetite comes with, eating and "There If something kind hearty like about the atmosphere, Vhen the heat of summer's over and the coolm fall is here.' THE DINNER. Thi3. It must be remembered. Is, more than all things else, a family gathering; B.U needles? form and ceremony are to be avoided. Thankfulness and good cheer are the spirits that rule the feast. There I very little variation in the dishes serv ed, as certain viands are so closely asso ciated with the day it would set m almost like sacrilege to leave them off the menu or make any radical change in their prep aration. Imagine Thanksgiving without turkey ! On- might as well forego the feast altogether as to leave this Hamlet out of the play. Many housekeepers pre fer to wait for this occasion before serv ing the first turkey of the season; this is a very sensible idea, as every one is bet ter able to enjoy it when not satiated from a too frequent dit- M A KING PREPARATIONS.

For example: The mince pies and cranberry jelly. Nuts may be cracked and fruit arranged, and even the turkey stuffed, un'ess oysters are employed, on the day before. If no maid is In attend ance, many housewives have adopted plan by which they save many steps and the annoyance of some one continually having to leave) the table. This is to set a butler's trap or smal table at their left hand: on this arrange all silver, dishes and such things as can not be placed on t-ne taite at tne Beginning or tne meai. Also the salad materials, the fruits and nuts. Even the after dinner coffee can be made at the table by using a small alcohol lamp.

For table decorations avoid hot hou?e products, except chrysanthemums, then if the housewife is the fortunate possessor of her grandmother's willow-ware china or pattern of like design, she will find she can give a very effective colonial air to her dinner. Many an ingenious country hostess, when flowers are scarce, arranges a center-piece of the autumn leaves and vegetables, with dark green ivy for a back ground. A basket may be made from a medium-sized, common field pumpkin, filled with fruit and nuts and at the base the dark green Ivy. to carry out the harvest-home idea. Those who live in or near country places have the mosses, lich ens, bright red berries and autumn leaves which may be gathered and preserved Crimson geraniums and ivy leaves are very effective, giving warmth and added cheerfulness.

Fish Timbales Rub together two level tablespoonfuls of butter and same of flour, to a smooth paste; add one cup of hot milk and stir and cook until It comes to boiling point. Season with half a tea spoonful of salt, a dash of cayenne, half a teasnoonful of finely minced parsley. Add a cup of cold cooked fish minced fine: heat thoroughly: add yolks of three eggs slightly beaten and take from the fire. When cool fold in ""the whites of the eggs beaten to a stiff froth. Fill little tim bale molds two-thirds full and bake in the oven for 15 or 20 minutes. Oyster Sauce Make a white sauce, but using the heated strained oyster liquor instead of milk, adding a cup of oysters parboiled in their own liquor, the muscle removed and cut into small pieces. Sea son with salt, white pepper and a table spoonful of Worcestershire sauce. Chestnut Stuffing Roast one quart of Italian or French chestnuts until thor oughly well dene. Remove the shells and skias and mash smooth, adding a table spoonful of melted butter or rich cream, a teaspoonful of salt and three dashes of white pepper. Mix well together and stuff the turkey. You will require more for large turkey. If preferred the chestnuts may be used in the gravy and turkey stuffed with sausage or served au nature!. Frozen Rice Pudding Wash well half a cup of rice and put in a double boiler with one pint of cold water, cook half an hour: then drain and cover with a pint of milk and cook until tender. Wrhip a quart of good, sweet cream and stand in a cold place to drain. When rice is tender rub it through a sieve and return to the boiler. Beat together until light one and a haif cuds of sue-ar and volks of six es-s and add to the rice. Stir and cook for al rew minutes until It begins to thicken. Remove from the fire and when slightly cool add a tablespoonful of vanilla and turn out to cool. When perfectly cold turn into a freezer and freeze same as Ice cream. Serve with a compote of oranges, peaches or apricots. This makes a large quantity. Orange Compote Peel one dozen sweet oranges carefully removing all the white part. With a sharp knife cut into slices quarter of an Inch thick, removing the pits and core. Put one pound of sugar in a saucepan with half a cup of water and stir until sugar is dissolved: then boil ten minutes and skim, if necessary; add juice of half a lemon. Put in the slices of oranges, a few at a time, and let them cook a moment, then lav out on a flat dish. When all are done pour the re mainder of the syrup over them and let get perfectly cold.

A message received here today from the San Carlos reservation, says that no Indians have left the reservation, contradicting- the belief that the Apache band which has been on the war path in Mexico came from San Carlos. There are no indica tions of uneasiness among- the San Car los Apaches. A dispatch from Casa Grande, Mexico; states that the fight reported there be tween Mormons and a band of Indiana was groasly exaggerated. Slight trouble occurred near Colonla Pacheco. and the whites fired on a few wandering reds who plundered eatables from a ranch house. One Indian is said to have been killed and another wounded.

Four Gilt Edged Roads and Fire Grangers Compared. A HIGH PERCENTAGE Recorded by the Santa Fein Net Earnings Which - May ', Account For Ad vance in Its Securities. It scarcely admits of controversy that the success or failure of railroad proper ties now depends principally on efficiency of operative management there was a time when financial sagacity was the prime consideration. This being admit ted, It follows that the ratio between gross and net earnings from operation only is the most important criterion of the well-being of a railroad because it is the index of efficiency in 'management. Recognition of the Santa Fe's official op eration and earnings power is reflected in the rise in prices its securities have rec orded in the market recently. The following table presents this ratio for four of the "gilt-edged" raosd and for five of the "granger" and western road3 which are now in the public eye. The per centages are derived from official figures fro gross and net earnings from actual op eration. Differences in mileage hav been disregarded because the comparison is not between fiscal periods, but between one management and another. The results follow; Pet of Pet. of I net earn'gs, net eam'srs, : 1800-99. l!s99-SS.

It is true that traffic conditions and the nature of the business of these western roads give them an advantage, but the fact remains that they are being operated with surprising skill. Few persons reflect on the pecun iary losses which result from the most trivial errors of judgment in railway oper ation, and the stock market is apt to ig nore the genius for economy, which un derlies every fraction of a per cent gain ed in the ratio of net earnings. Consid ered merely as an illustration of the scien tific skill with which American railways are now managed the table is interesting, and it affords a statistical basis for faith in the continued prosperity of the western roads. NOT AMENABLE TO LAW. Superintendent Who Discharges Brotherhood Men Not Indicted. Philadelphia, Nov. 21. The United States grand jury ignored the bills of in dictment against Isaac A. Sweigard, former superintendent of the Philadel phia and Reading- Railway company who was charged by the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen with having dis charged employes of the Reading com pany because they were members of the brotherhood. The offense alleged consti tuted a violation of the Act of Congress of June 1, 1898, and the charge was by the president of the brotherhood, Valen tine Fitzpatrick, whose headquarters are at Cleveland. Tourist Oars Popular. The Increasing: popularity of tourist sleeping- cars for transcontinental travel is a subject of much comment among railroad men. It is said that 85 per cent of the passengers to and from California travel in tourist sleeping cars. These cars are comfortable and not nearly so expensive aa palace sleeping cars. AT JUNCTION CITY.

As a result of Its year's operations the International Packing company lost $343,604. At the annual meeting held today. Attorney Jacob Newman characterized the event as the funeral of the company. A reso lution providing for a committee to in vestigate the company's affairs and re port as to the best course to be followed was unanimously adapted. The presi dent reported that keen competition caused the deficit. The company is cap italized for $2,500,000. Last year's busi ness amounted to over $5,000,000. YR00MAN TALKS POLITICS. Says That Trusts Will Rob Republi cans as Well as Democrats. Carl Vrooman, the Parsons Populist, discussing the result of the recent elec tion, said: "We fought a good fight, we kept the faith and If henceforth there is laid up for our country four years of prosperity and plenty I am prepared to enjoy as much of it as any Republican can. If, on tie other hand, the trusts continue, as I believe they will, to tighten their grip on the throats of the people, I'll have the satisfaction of knowing that they'll rob Republicans as complacently as they will Populists and Democrats. I'll enjoy the next four years good fighting as much as I have the last. If we have been wromg.the next four years will prove it. If we have been i ight, the next four years will prove that. "The chief factor of how it happened was a failure on the part of many vo ters to know or to care what were tiie real causes of the present business re vival. . These causes were : First, a re action from the panic of the plutocrat Cleveland administration. Secondly, the increase of our circulating medium by the world's phenomenal output of gold. Thirdly, the four distinct wars, each of which Increased the demand and de creased the supply of food and other products; and, fourthly, several minor reasons, such, as foreign crop failures and famines. This business revival, which came In spite of, and in no way on account of, the McKinley admlnis tration.has yet in the popular mind been associated with that administration. As a result the Republican party and Mark Hanna have received the gratitude and the thanksgiving due to Almighty God. "By 1904 the people will have learned a new catechism 'The Lord giveth and the trust taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord! To with Hanna- lsm!' " Mr. Vrooman, who was one of the managers of the Populist feature of the campaign, expresses the following opin ion of Mr. Bryan: "Historians will say of Bryan that he was the greatest political educator of the century. Whether we consider him right or wrong in his economic views, every fair man must acknowledge that he inaugurated a new era in American politics. His advent put an end to 25 years of scrambling for spoils, by lining up our two great parties in a struggle for principle. Our principle of that struggle is sure to emerge triumphant. To doubt this is treason and atheism." As a warning for the next campaign, Mr. Vrooman says: "Every Populist and Democrat should be careful to remember what we are so constantly urging on Republicans, that principles are the soul, the spirit, of a party, and that whoever loves party name, party history or party organiza tion more than the vital principles of that party, is 'worse than an infidel.' If Grover Cleveland and "Whitney and their gang of plutocratic tools should ever get control of the national Demo cratic organization again, the duty of every Jeffersonian, Jacksonian Demo crat would be to rally to the formation of a new Democracy. In that new party, in that new physical body, would thus become reincarnate and invincible tne great, undying principles of popular gov ernment. . "Our principles can win in 1904 on one condition if we are true to them. To remain steadfast ad true may require sacrifice of time, of money, of friends and perhaps of our own favorite and al most priceless party prejudice. But if we axe not ready to sacrifice J1 these and more, if we are not ready to cling to principle with a deathless devotion, and to fight for it to the last dollar and the last drop of blood, we are unworthy to be freemen. 'The greatest problem today pressing for solution is the trust problem. It will dwarf all other issues in 1904. Every citizen should study it and proclaim the truth about it from the house tops, realizing that upon its solution depends the perpetuity of liberty amongst us. Imperialism is but the latest eruption in a new spot of the same foul disease." WILL HUNT AGuTfiALDO. Reformed Filipino Chief Will -Start on the Trail. Manila, Nov. 21. General Macabolos, the former Filipino chief, is prepared to start in pursuit of Aguinaldo with 100 picked natives, supported by Amer ican troops. Other ex-rebel Filipinos will be used in campaigning in the country. Their offers have not been formally made yet, but they are ready if the authorities will accept their serv ices.

CRUEL METHODS Of Treating; Piles and Rectal Dis eases. The old method of treating piles by the knife, by ligature or dilation, besides causing Intense pain and frequently col lapse and death are now known to be worse than useless as far as actually curing the trouble is concerned. Derangement of the liver, and other internals organs as well as constipation often cause piles, and it is a mistake to treat it as a purely local disease; this is the reason why salves and oint ments have so little effect and the wide spread success of the Pyramid Pile Cure has demonstrated it. The Pyramid Pile Cure is not a salve nor ointment, but is In suppository form, which is applied at night, absorbed into the sensitive rectal membrane and acta both as a local and constitutional treat ment and in cases of many years stand ing has made thousands of permanent cures. Many pile sufferers who have under gone surgical operations without relief or cure have been surprised by results from a few weeks' treatment with the Pyramid suppository. The relief from pain is so immediate that patients sometimes imagine that the Pyramid contains opiates or cocaine, but such is not the case; it is guaranteed absolutely free from any injurious drug. The cure is the result of the healing oils and astringent properties of the remedy which cause the little tumors and conjested blood vessels to contract and a natural circulation is established.

I had been out of health for the past five years with kidney and bladder trouble. Had our best physicians prescribe for me. They would relieve me for the time being, but the old complaint would in a Bhort time return again. I sent for a sample bottle of Swamp-Root, and I found it did me a world of good. Since then I have taken eight small bottles bought at my drug store, and I consider myself perfectly cured. It seemed as though my back would break in two after stooping. I do not have to get up during the night to urinate, as formerly did three or four times a night, but nowsleep the sleep of peace. My back is all right again, and in every way I am a new man. Two of my brother officers are still using Swamp-Root. They, likemyself, cannot say too much in praise of it. It is a boon to mankind. WTe recommend it to all humanity who are suff ering from kidney and blidder diseases. My brother officers (whose signatures accompany this letter), as well as my self, thank you for the blessing you have brought to the human race in the com pounding of Swamp-Root.

Women as Well as ' Men Are Made Miserable by Kidney and Bladder Troubles. 'Tou have no idea how well I feel I am satisfied that I do not need any more medicine, as I am in as good health as I ever was in my life." So says Mrs. Mary Engelhardt, of 2,835 Madison Street, St. Louis, Mo., to a re porter of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. "For more than ten years I had suf fered with what the doctors termed fe male trouble; also heart trouble, with swelling of the feet and limbs. Last summer I felt so badly that I thought I had not long to live. I consulted doc tor after doctor and took their medi cines, but felt no better. The physicians told me my kidneys were not affected, but I felt sure that they were the cause of my trouble. A friend recommended me to try Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root.and I must say I derived immense benefits almost from the first week. I continued the medicine, taking it regularly, and I am now in splendid health. The pains and aches have all gone. I have rec ommended Swamp-Root to all my friends, and told them what it has done for me. I will gladly answer any one who desires to write me regarding my case. I most heartily indorse Swamp Root from every standpoint. There is EDITORIAL NOTICE.

That Seems to Be Popular Basis For New House Apportionment. Washington. Nov. 21. Representative Hopkins, of Illinois, chairman of the house committee on census, which com mittee will have charge of the legisla tion affecting the apportionment of the house, today expressed the opinion that there would be no decided effort during the next session of congress to decrease the congressional representation of the southern states because of the disfran chisement of negroes. He said that In all probability the subject would be dis cussed, but he thought, that upon the wrhole the committee would favor the plan of basing representation, upon the number of inhabitants. Discussing the general subject of re apportionment, Mr. Hopkins said: "The committee on census will meet during the first week of the session to frame a bill providing for reapportion ment. I think that a proposition will be adopted which will increase the pres ent membership of the house. It has been suggested that we authorize one member for every 198,000 inhabitants. That seems to be the ratio that is in general favor among members of the committee. This proposition would en tall an increased membership of from 15 to 20 members. "According to calculations I have made, this reapportionment would add members to the house from New York and Illinois and perhaps other state.
