Manv men before Dr. Trudean preached the virtues of fresh air. fresh food, and rest as destroyers of dlsesse. especially consumption I1! Trudeau by sheer force of char acter and devotion brqought these virtues Into the lives of thousands I hat live to call his name blessed. What others discussed learnedly for the Intellectual appreciation of the few he practiced and made ac ' nal for the benefit ot all. Himself on the verge of the grave when na ture restored to him adequate vitality and strength, ho spent them without stint In the service of his fellows, making them realize the ad vantages of Implicit obedience, to natural law, teaching them patience In suffering, fortitude In danger, faith amid doubt. Kor more than twoscore vears Dr. Trudeau survived the sentence of death which In his young days the discovery that his lungs were if fected by tuberculosis brought upon him. In these years, full of fruitful labor, he had tha satisfaction of bringing dlrectlv to many the lueatl ruahle beennts of well-founded hope and re-established health, and of seeing his methods adopted all over the world. To humanity Dr. Trudeau brought relief from suffering and hopeless ness. Of even mora value, rightly estimated, was the lesson of passion ate devotion to a single, sln.plo Idea that lies at the root of human happiness. Commercial Globe and Advertiser Tuberculosis.

It Is the Irony of history that the rilgrlm fathers should be credited with tha establishment of that which they abhorred, a formal holiday, and that we, In "celebrating Thanksgiv ing Day" look upon ourselves aa following In their footsteps when we are actually violating their fun damental principles. Pastor Robin son cast off all the fixed fasts and feasts of the Church of England, believing that they led to formalism, eccleslaatlclam, and auperstltttlon. The American people have mostly departed from this opinion Evan the Mayflower descendants have re Introduced Christmas, and are grad ually coming to observe taster and Good Friday. This thay have a per fect right to do, and their puritanic ancestors would be last to reproach them for thus acting In accordance with their consciences, though It In volved deviation from the footsteps of their forefathers Uut we may Imagine that the Pilgrim fathers, If they returned to earth In November, might use some harsh language, not merely about tho way their descend ants observe Thanksgiving Day, but also about their observing It at all The legal Institution of Thanks giving Day dates back to 1637, when the Plymouth magistrates passed an ordinance "that It be In the power of the governor and assistants to command solemn days of humilia tion and also for thanksgiving as occasion shall be offered " The last five words contain the essence of tho Idea. The Plymouth magistracy did not ordain that henceforth and forever the people should proceed to be thankful on the last Thursday of November every yenr rain or shine They were too sensible for that They empow ered the governor to appoint such solemn days at any appropriate time that Is, whenever there Is something special to be glad or sorry about. The first Thanksgiving was held In 1621 after the first harvest, a great event, a unique occasion, for It THANKSGIVING THOUGHT By WILLIAM FAVERSHAM. Let deeds spell our thanks for all the benedictions bestowed upon us. Let the exposition of that beautiful word, thanksgiving, make this a nation strong in its resolve for righteousness; broad in, its humanity; serene in its justice; humble in its helpfulness; proud in its usefulness; grateful in its blessing of material wealth; greatest of all in its spiritual worth. Let it stand aloof, if it can with honor, that it may serve others in the hour of their need, sharing its abundance with ihe help less and distressed. Ma the children's children of this generation look back upon this time of strife and turmoil and give thanks, too, for their fore bears, who, through the hours of darkness held aloft the beacon of promise that the peoples of all the world might know that brotherhood still held sway upon this fair earth and that peace contentment and right living were a greater boon than a place in the sun, or the material wealth of all the ages William Danforth . Is Thankful Today For the, Fact That He Looks Like Not Is a Because That Particular Gift Is What Gives the Father of "The Girl Who Smiles," at the Belasco, Three Meals a Day, a Place to Sleep In a Home, Wife and Children, a Job, and a Few Other Things Not Always To Be Had By Real Millionaires. By FLORENCE r iHE next thing to being a mil lionaire Is to look like one. At least that characteris tic has an actual commer cial value salable to stage managers , at the rate of so much per. William Danforlh, father dT "The Olrl Who Smiles," In the Phllltppe musical comedy at the Belasco, this week, doesn't confess to being millionaire, but he does admit that ha ran look. Ilka one, and that It serves him In the capacity of a real and continuous job. He's thankful today that he has eyebrows like Frank Danlels-tha kind, remerabtr, which are movabl to any portion of the forehead and that he Is atout and prosperous looking, and that he has a rich old father with hls-birk-ls-worse-thu hls-blte kind of a disposition. In fact, stag managers who want to put on musical comedies simply can't seem to get along successfully without Danforth, tho expert stage father to tho young woman who plays lh lead, because he looks the part, for one thing, and because, for another, his experience la such that ha never needs to be trained to death Playing the part of the million aire' fathe.- has been this gentle man's forte for several jcara.

Hut when other harvests came along with monotonous regularity they ceased o fael that first spontaneous grati tude for an unexpected blessing, and so Thanksgiving In time be came perfunctory and meaningless as a harvest festival. And now how can we expect the millions of dwell er In our cities to thrill at the thought of harvest time when all they know of It Is that the price of wheat drops on exchange and big pumplna appear In the. restaurant windows?

Vou know, and every physician knows, that when any sickness has passed, whether it be throat trouble, organic disturbances, contagious dis eases, or even a seveie cold, a relapse Is feared, because sickness robs the sytem of Nature's resistance and leaves it subject to lingering germs. Drugs never build up a worn out bodyonly food can do that, anri the first thing to take after any sickness is the concentrated, blood-making oil food in Scon's Emulsion, which feeds the tissues, benefits the blood and strengthens both lungs and throat.
