Quaint Song êlSESSg» of Thanks Through the hard days of the World war while the men were fighting, the women of Amer ica were working, waiting, eves? courag eously. Now that those days are over and the difficult after math needs care ful handling, woman is still striving to add her serv ice wherever there Is need of brave and patient endeavor. w I At to' Post-war times are always trying ones. Hence it is with a little more sympathetic understanding than usual that we read the lines of a quaint old Thanksgiving hymn, bearing the date of 1783. Its author is unknown, but its sentiment holds true today, though we may wish to change the name of our first President to that of some later leader. The Lord above, In tender love. Hath saved us from our foes. Through Washington the thing is done; The war is at a close. America has won the day Through Washington, our chief; Come, let us rejoice with heart and voice And bid good-by to grief. Let us agree, since we are free. All needless things to shun; And lay aside all pomp and pride. Like our great Washington. Though we do not proclaim this anonymous writer as a second Shake speare, let us follow his counsel by bidding farewell to grief, by laying aside pride and pomp, and turning this Thanksgiving season into one in which we remember only our mercies and blessings, which are many. "Come, let us rejoice with heart and voice," for what we have, if It be but little, helping the less fortunate, if It be an abundance. g ; Day of Joy ^ I // X W P fr v v rt' r *2 Thanksgiving day! Thanksgiving day! The plumes of celery are gay. Cranberry sauce Is glowing red. The sun shines blessing on your head. And from the oven comes a whiff That makes each little tiker sniff. Give me some w r hite meat, if you pleas?, I'm busier than honey bees! Thanksgiving day! Thanksgiving Cay! It's fairer than the buds o May. Stewed onions, sweet potatoes plump, A turkey perched on every stump. When folks on farms decide to eat, Believe me, it's a merry treat! Give me a drum-stick— gravy, too.

At least, there is always the day to be glad of— Thanksgiving day. _ ,!fESTIVAL NOW ALL AMERICAN Though Its Origin Was Pagan, Thanksgiving Is Peculiarly of This Country. Pilgrim Fathers Gave Religious Char acter to Celebration Which for Centuries Had Been Occasion Only for Material Jollification. People who do not chloroform their sense of fun before starting to read history have had many a chuckle over the Pilgrim and Puritan festival of Thanksgiving. These early settlers of New England were so militantly Chris tian that they could not bear any sug gestion of an earlier creed. They objected to Christmas as "heathenish," because it contained—as it still con tains—so many relies of pre-Christian days. Having done this, they turned round, seized on the most thoroughly pagan of all celebrations, that of the gathered harvest, and made it an insti tution that has grown and spread for three centuries, is the indictment drawn by a writer In an eastern maga zine. But the joke is not all on the Pil grims. True, they went back to a fes tival which has been held ever since man began to plant and gather crops; but they made of it something peculiar ly modern, Christian, and, at the last, A inert "an. They gave a religious character to a celebration which for ages had been a purely material jollification, and made ii a part of the community's pub lic policy; an occasion for coming to gether in common aspirations, hopes and gratitude. All the changes and developments of the last 300 years have not been able to change the es sential character of the Pilgrim Thanksgiving. How many inventions of today will last so long? The first Thanksgiving feast, held in the fall of 1621, was not ordained by formal proclamation. The colony was too small to need such a notice. But the circumstances under which the celebration was held are told in Governor Bradford's history in a way well worthy of quotation : They (the colonists) begane now to gather in the small harvest they had, and to fitte up their houses and dwell ings against winter, being all well re covered in health & strength, & had ■ all things in good plenty : for as some were thus imployed in affaires abroad, others were exercised in fishing, aboute codd, & bass, & other fish, of which they tooke good store, of which every family had their portion. . . begane to come in store of foule, winter approached, of which this place did abound when they came first, but afterwards decreased by de And besides water foule, tlier great store of wild Turkies, of .

Excepting small boys, one can hard ly imagine the folk of a modern com munity boasting about their plenty under the stimulus of a "peck a meale s weeke to a person, conld he trapped, or shot with flint lock firearms. But such things depend mainly on the point of view, and that may not have improved so much in the last three centuries as we think. We of today know more of a thousand things than did Governor Bradford and his companions, but it is not so certain that we know more of the basic bnsi plus such game as ness of living. "Excellent hearts had our fathers of old," and for steady, cheerful cour age, the Pilgrim colonists never have been surpassed. Twelve years later, the colony had much that a formal procla The first grown so mation seemed necessary, one was issued on October 1, 1633, and the Thanksgiving celebration held two weeks later, October 16. The custom soon spread throughout Then, on October 3, was New England. 1789, the new President of the new nation, George Washington, called on the American people to assemble on Nov. 26 and give thanks, among other things, For the signal and manifold Mer cies, and the favorable Interposition of His Providence in the course and conclusion of the late War . . for the peaceful and rational manner in which we have been enabled to es tablish Constitutions and Governments for our safety and happiness ; and par* tlcularly the national one now lately instituted."

Humility Goes With Thanks. Thanksgiving Is essentially a re ligious holiday. Like Christmas, it has lost something of its significance through the overemphasizing of Its sec ular features. The other holidays commemorate the birth or the deeds of great men or perpetuate the memory of great events. They speak to the mind In Its happiest moods, telling over a record of glorious actions and repeating reasons for contentment and love of country.

He thought of his mother becoming poor after his father died. He heard the sound of laughter and shouting. A tear came to his eyes.

A big tear was rolling down his cheek. _ It's just a plain gray Thursday, said he. isn't like long ago on Thanksgiving.
